Please do not feel that you that you must complete all the activities suggested - the ideas and links are there to try to make it easier for the children. I know that some children prefer to do online activities, and some would prefer to be able to print off and have a paper copy. You can copy the images or snipping tool so you can highlight and copy onto word if that is easier for you. Please do not feel any pressure in completing all the tasks - it is important for the children to still have some challenge but not to cause them stress. You can email us through Purple Mash if you need any help.  Miss Davis and Mr Nunn.

Letter writing

This week we would like you to focus on writing letters, the challenge will be to write a letter to your year 2 teacher, informing them of what you enjoyed during your time in that class. A letter to a friend or family member that you haven’t seen for a while, tell them what you have been doing, say why you’re looking forward to seeing them again and what why you have missed them, did they make you laugh? Finally write a letter to your new year 3 teacher, tell them about yourself, what do you like to do? What you are looking forward to learning? Let them know if you are a bit worried.

Could you write a letter to a school in another part of the world?

Think about the information you could include in the letter about your school, and what questions you could ask children in the school you’re sending the letter to.



Could you write a short story – imagine being a letter being posted in a post box, where would the letter end up?

The Magic Globe –  

“Hmmm. Where shall we go this time?” Jeremy asked his brother. “How about there!?” replied Max excitedly. “We’ve always talked about going there!”

The brothers both put their fingers on the part of the world they had chosen, and waited for the magic to happen.

“I wonder if it will be as fun as our last trip,” mused Jeremy, as the globe began to glow…
