English writing

Some different writing skills for you to practise this week:

A letter to a friend – (starts on p9) – formal and informal language

The magic pebble – (starts on p33) – descriptive text


Handwriting – you can choose any two activities to do each week! Remember to put the date at the top of the page. Think carefully about the joins that you have practised in school this year.



Now you've completed your solid, liquids and gases scavenger hunt, look at the following picture. Have a discussion with your grown-ups or siblings about the statements the children are making. Are they correct? How do you know? We will post the answers on Friday.


Last week, you created a map of your local area. Can you compare it with this map of Castor (a village about 4 miles away from school)? What differences do you notice? What's the same?

You may also wish to consider the following:

  • Which main roads pass through each place?
  • Which place do you think has the biggest population (most people living there)? Why?
  • Are there any rivers nearby?
  • Are there any parks or woodland areas in each place?
  • What facilities does each place have? e.g. school, playing fields etc.



In Year 3, you learnt all about shadows. Can you create your very own shadow art? Here is an example. The more creative you get, the better! We'd love to see pictures of your finished piece.
