Hopefully you can use it in your writing this week!


Lucky Dip

For the last two weeks we have been using this animation in our English lessons. The children have loved using it to look at the character, the setting, the feelings the characters experience etc. 

They have produced some excellent writing from it! Please share it at home and discuss what is happening. Talk about which bits they have enjoyed and why. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

Full- stops

This game is to remind us where our full-stops go. Some children forget when they get carried away writing. This game will help you learn to re-read your work and practise adding your full stops which can be very tricky.

This week we have been learning how to use a variety of conjunctions in our writing. This game will help you connect the sentences choosing the appropriate conjunction. After you could have a go at writing your own story using some conjunctions. I would love to read them and I am sure it would be worth some extra dojo points!


Look, Cover, Write and Check – spelling practice.

This link will take you to an excellent website which the children can use to help practise their spellings. You can use the lists given or add in your own words by clicking on the word and then typing your own in. This is great for key words like ‘they’ that are often used but misspelt or for their weekly spellings lists. Happy practising!
