Due the first Friday back
Young Writers’ are running a competition and we would like to enter as many entries as possible.
From Treasure Island to The Lord of the Flies, children’s stories are often based in an island setting, with the inhabitants of the island discovering something within mysterious forests and deserted beaches. This year we are looking for new and exciting ways of exploring and interpreting the idea of the island.
Your Easter homework task is to create your very own short story or poem on the theme of ‘The Island’. Think outside the box. Don’t be afraid to write something that is unique and creative. Let your imagination run wild.
Minimum words: 100 and Maximum words: 500
Short stories or poems can be written or typed.
The following details must be at the top of each entry:
Name, Age, School, Year Group and Title of Story

To ensure phonics and spelling is embedded, we will no longer be sending home spelling books. Words of the week will be displayed on the website for you to practise at home. Alongside these, the children will be assessed on spelling rules they have learnt. This may take the form of a quick spelling test in school and also through application in their writing tasks.
The spelling rule for next week is: Words ending in -tion (revise)
Examples: station, fiction
Words of the week:
Exception words are words in which the English spelling code works in an unusual or uncommon way. They are not words for which phonics 'doesn't work', but they may be exceptions to spelling rules, or words which use a particular combination of letters to represent sound patterns in a rare or unique way.
