Spellings - Mrs Fitzmaurice's Group


Have a look at the words on the fish and choose another 10 you need to practise. Choose a method which works for you for learning your spellings - you may want to write the word 5 times then test yourself, rainbow writing, blue vowels, red consonants, pyramid writing or practise writing the words in sentences - it's up to you! As long as you learn how to spell your chosen words the ask someone at home to test you.

Spellings - Mrs Wingfield's Group


In your pack you will find a list of words focussing on the the 'n' sound spelt using 'kn' and 'gn'. Have a go at the look, write, check worksheet and keep practising until you know these words off by heart. Next, have a go at the word search.

Lesson 6


LI: create a poem


- Have a go at the prepositions worksheet.

- Have a go at 10 Things Found in a Tree Goblin’s Suitcase.

- Have a go at Poetry (remember illustrations just means drawings/pictures).


Lesson 7


LI: create descriptions


- Have a go at Goblin Menu and Goblin Necklace worksheets. Remember the focus of these activities is descriptions – think of really good vocabulary you can use to really help paint that picture in your reader’s mind.

- If you are feeling brave, you can have a go at the Nettle Fritter Recipe!


Lesson 8


LI: create a plan


- In this lesson, we are going to start creating a plan for our own story! First, have a look at The Impossibly Possible Bookshop plan – have a read through the story again and see how they have used their plan to write their story. If you are stuck for ideas for your writing, have a look at the Story Ideas section for inspiration!

- Use the Your Ideas worksheet to help you fill in the Use the Page to Plan your Story.


Lesson 9 and 10


LI: create a story


Over the next two lessons, use this time to create your own story, using the plan you created as guidance. Have a look back at the original story for ideas on what grammar you can include in your writing (remember you know about fronted adverbials, conjunctions, noun phrases, expanded noun phrases, direct speech, prepositions, Name – adjective pair – sentence and Tell: show 3 examples; sentence.) Take your time and remember to include character’s senses in your story to describe how the character is feeling and settings! Have fun!

Lesson 6


LI: find information


- Read the poem Colours together.

- Complete the colouring page using instructions from the poem.

- Have a look at the Painted Lady Fact File, then have a go at creating your own Fact File about the Pool Frog (you will need to do some research!)


Lesson 7


LI: recall information


- Have a look at some more creatures Bob helped (who are not in this story). Write down a few sentences explaining how Bob kept them safe and helped them out.

- Summarise the story of Bob the Bubble (that means write down the most important points of the story so someone would know what happened in the story without having to read it).


Lesson 8


LI: create a plan


- Today you will plan your own story about Bob the Bubble – what will he do? Where will he go? Use the story planning sheet in your pack to help you – try and answer the questions in the box for each part of the story.


Lesson 9 and 10


LI: create a story


- Use your plan you created yesterday to write your story. Remember to think about really interesting vocabulary you can add to your writing and make sure you read over your work to check it makes sense! Once you have finished, read your story to someone in your house.
