English - Adventure Stories


I would like to say a massive thank you to every child who set work in to me last week, I was very impressed with the work you have provided. Well done to all of you!


Last week we began to look at adventure stories and what different features we might include within them.


This week, we are going to be looking at a few more of the different features that I would like to see within your work. 




Today, we are going to be learning about prepositions!

A preposition is a word that tells you where or when something is in relation to something else.

Examples of prepositions include words like 'after', 'before', 'on', 'under', 'inside' and 'outside'.

An example of a sentence that includes prepositions is: "After walking for miles she rested on a hill"

In this sentence 'after' tells you when she rested and 'on' tells you where she rested.


Today you are going to be looking at the sentences you are given.

I would like you to fill in the gaps with the correct preposition.




Today we are going to be learning about adjectives.

Adjectives are words that we use to describe nouns.


For today's lesson I would like you to think of the characters who are going to be in your story.


Can you think of as many different adjectives that you could use to describe your character(s)?




Today we are going to be continuing our work on adjectives.

Adjectives are words that we use to describe nouns.


For today's lesson I would like you to think of the setting where your adventure story is going to be taking place.


Can you think of as many different adjectives that you could use to describe your setting?


For a bonus challenge, do you think you could draw me a picture of where your story is going to be taking place?




Today we are going to be looking at direct speech!

We use direct speech to show what different characters would say within a story.

To show that we are using speech, we need to remember our inverted commas!

For example "We have an exciting lesson today" the teacher said.


Remember if you have more than one person speaking you need to include a new speaker on a new line.


For example:


"Lets go to the park tomorrow" said Dave

"That sounds like a really good idea" Bob replied

"Cool I will see you tomorrow" said Dave


Your task for today is to look at the following phrases, can you put the inverted commas in the correct place?


For an extra challenge, can you write a short conversation between two people using inverted commas in the correct places?




Today you are going to be writing the plan for your own adventure story!


Think about: 

Who your characters are going to be?

What are the characters going to be like?

Where will the story take place?

What is going to happen in your story?

What will the introduction look like?

What will happen in the middle of your story?

How will your story end?


Just a reminder that you do not need to print off the worksheets, you can open them and write your answers on a separate piece of paper

Project Based Learning - The Amazing Egyptians


Thank you for all of your fantastic work last week, I was really impressed with all of your boats! I certainly saw some very interesting designs!


This week, we are going to be learning about the different Pharaos who ruled in Ancient Egypt.


The Pharaoh was the person who was the ruler of Ancient Egypt. They were seen as the most powerful person in Ancient Egypt and were often seen as the link between the people and the Gods.


The Pharaoh owned all of the land in Egypt, enacted laws, collected taxes, and defended Egypt from invaders as the commander-in-chief of the army.


Religiously, the pharaoh officiated over religious ceremonies and chose the sites of new temples. He was responsible for maintaining Maat, or cosmic order, balance, and justice, and part of this included going to war when necessary to defend the country or attacking others when it was believed that this would contribute to Maat, such as to obtain resources.


This week, I would like you to look at the information sheet about the different Pharaohs and choose 4 that you would like to write about.


I would like you to complete the worksheet (You can do this on a spare piece of paper) and create 4 mini fact files for your chosen Pharaos.

The Mummy Song


This week, I have found a song that I would  like you to practice at home


It is called the Mummy song and is about Ancient Egyptian Mummys!!!


I hope that you enjoy.







Hello Year 3, 


You might remember that at school we were having a Vocal music lesson once a week. To keep them going our vocal teacher Miss Ashman has created some short films that you can watch and join in with. 


All you need to do is click on the links below in the order you see them, and the lesson will appear.


Before you start watching get yourselves ready, ask your parents or siblings to sing a few notes and you are ready to go!  There will be another set of films next week and you can use the films more than once – in fact, the more the better.
