Your task today is to create a setting description for one of the pictures attached. You can pick any picture you would like to describe to create me an excellent setting description.

Think about the 5 senses (smell, touch, taste, hear and see) and make sure you describe these in as much detail as you possibly can. 

Use lots of amazing adjectives and lots of detail to create a super piece of writing.

Try to avoid saying I can see, I can hear etc - think about different sentence openers.

For English today we are going to create a story. I would like you to think of 10 nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs, you could create lists in your exercise books. Once you have done this, pick 3 from each category.

  • Expanded noun phrases

Spellings

 

Usually, in class we have a weekly spelling test on a Monday. Use the spelling lists below and try and learn some spellings. Both year groups should have already learnt the first 8 from each list for previous homework and therefore should start from the ninth spelling down. We usually aim to learn 8 spellings each week. I have attached some activities to help you learn those spellings. Once you feel confident with your spellings, ask an adult to test you. How many did you get correct?
