I have set some as homework but you can do any others as well.

This week is our assessment week. On Monday and Tuesday we will be doing our assessments in school.

If you have to be at home all week ask your parents to let me know and I will send you the assessment booklets. Wednes day and Thursday are our story writing days.

Here are a few other activities to do in between or while you wait for them to arrive.

You can also look on Purple Mash for Phonics, Spelling or Grammar activities.



WEDNESDAY Story Planning

Plan a story that takes place in a castle. It can be nowadays or it can be long ago.

Use the picture of your castle to help you think of ideas.

Draw 4 pictures to show what happens in your story.

Practise your story by saying it out loud.

Try to make it lively and full of interesting words.

THURSDAY Story Writing

Write the story that you planned and practised yesterday either at school or at home.

This is your assessment story so make it as good as you can.

Remember to have a beginning, a middle and an end.

Use describing words.

Can you use some different types of sentence?

Check that you have put a capital letter at the beginning of every sentence and don't forget full stops at the end.

Include some interesting words.

Write neatly.

When you have finished, read your story out loud. Does it make sense?

Check your spelling. 

Now do 3 things to make it even better.


Friday is Spelling day

Did you do all your assessments? 

If you did you can have a treat and watch a film this morning.

BUT- while you watch do the Look Say Cover Write Check for your spelling group.


Your new homework will be on Purple Mash 2dos this evening.
