Use each of your spelling words to create a super sentence. A sentence for each word of your spellings. Try to use as many upgraded adjectives as possible to make your sentences really interesting!


Suddenly he heard an eerie ticking coming from the broken clock under the old staircase.



Animal Research

Starting today and also using Monday of next week we would like you to research your own animal. This could be your favourite animal or maybe just an animal you would like to find out more about.


You will not need to show us what you find yet, that will be later on next week.


The more  information you find the better, but... only write down what you understand. Please don't copy and paste loads from the internet.

Some suggestions for the kind of information you might investigate:

  • What do they look like, describe them.
  • What do they eat
  • What part of the world can they be found
  • What is their natural habitat
  • How big do they grow
  • What makes them unique / special features
  • How many bones do they have
  • Interesting or fun facts


Try your best to use appropriate vocabulary. For example;

instead of saying 'They like to eat plants', you could say, 'Horses are herbivores, this means that they will only eat plants.'
