Writing

I would like you to think back to a few months a go when we looked at Fairytales in class. We twisted some and made some excellent alternative stories. 

I would like you to do a similar thing today. Use the Fairytale story prompt sheet attached. If you have dice then roll them and pick a picture from each line to create your own Fairytale. If you don't have any dice, then point to or just pick one from each line.

Remember to include all the grammatical features you have been working on and lots and lots of lovely description. 

It may even have to be a bit silly/funny to get the items to match together.

If you don't want to use the prompt sheet then you don't have to. Try create a unique Fairytale instead.

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?
