Week 11

Our focus on writing this week is ‘The Lighthouse.’ 

We would like you to focus on the sick sentences but it would be great if you could have a go at all the challenges. 


This week we would like you to focus on how facts and opinions are used in non-fiction texts. 

This link contains a helpful video and some activities to apply your knowledge.  

As a challenge, can you think of your own examples of facts and opinions? 

Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling

This week, we are developing our understanding of alliteration.  The following BBC Bitesize page explains what alliteration means and gives you an opportunity to practise your understanding.    

If you are unable to carry out the suggested activities, try to use the two work sheets below.  

Challenge – See if you can find tongue twisters on the internet that use alliteration.  

In addition to this, we would also like you to continue practising your handwriting skills with adverbs using the suffix -ly .
