Sentence types: read the top of the sheet about the different sentence types-commands, questions, statements and exclamations. Complete the activities on the sheet or write the answers in your exercise book. Remember to write the date and use Sentence Types as your title. After you have completed the activities on the sheet can you think of your own question, your own statement, your own exclamation and your own command. You could try and write them about the polar regions or your experience of home education so far!!!

With all that is happening around us, not being able to see the ones we love and many people isolating, why not write a letter to somebody in your family or a friend you are not able to see. You could even try writing a letter to an elderly person at Hopton Cottage Care Home. 

If you are writing to somebody you know you could tell them all things that you have been doing since school was closed, you could ask them questions about what they have been doing and offer suggestions of things to do to occupy their time  You could also tell them what you are looking forward to in the future. 

If you are writing to somebody you don't know in Hopton Cottage Care Home you could explain who you are, what you like to do normally in school, what you like to do out of school and you could offer suggestions of things to do to occupy their time. Maybe you could ask questions about what their life was like when they were younger. 

Once you've written it, ask your parents if it can be posted ( make sure you are following the social distancing rules and keeping you and your family safe). Don't worry if you can't post it, it will still be nice to look back upon and read when all this is over.
