Writing

Here are a selection of images for you to have a go at writing a short story about. 

These only need to be short, but think about something that happens in the story to grab your reader's attention.

You can use the story starter ideas to give you some ideas.

 

Reading

Have a go at these reading comprehensions. We've picked ones that are relevant to things we would be learning about this term. 

We usually sent these as homework, so most of you would be having a go at the 2 star or 3 star text and questions (when you've opened the link, scroll down to find the right one for you).

You might want to have a go at some of these activities alongside the newspapers (above). Lots of different ones to pick from!
