Please remember to login to Spelling Shed and practise your spellings! There is also an activity below to complete with this week's list: 



Please use the document below to learn about the poem Willow Pattern by Tony Mitton and learn about using descriptive writing to write a story. 



Please use the document below to read How Tortoise Got His Shell and have a reminder about using direct speech. You can then plan and write your own short story. 



Today, we would like you to write a book review of the BEST book that you have read in year 4.  

There are some formats that are uploaded below that you might like to use. You should be able to type into the WORD document if you want to, otherwise you could print the sheet out or just use the headings in your book. 

Remember to include details of WHY you enjoyed the book – use persuasive language to make your choice seem like the best book in the world! 



We have another reading comprehension for you today about rainforest minibeasts. There are three levels - easy, tricky and expert. Please choose one that you think will challenge you, but if you are finding it difficult, try an easier level. 



Today, we would like you to create your own rainforest creature! You might like to base it on a creature that you've already learned about, or you might like to come up with a completely new creature. You could draw your creature (which would be a great opportunity to use some of the shading skills you've learned!) and label it. 


Which level of the rainforest might it live in? What features does it have to help it survive in the rainforest? What is its diet like? Where does it sleep? Is it nocturnal? Does it have young? How long does it live for? 


When you are describing your creature, think about using some interesting adjectives. 


We can't wait to see some of your ideas!
