This week is Children’s Mental Health Week, so some of our activities this week will be dedicated to this.

Monday - on Monday 1st February at 9am please watch a special assembly if you are able to. The assembly will feature well-known faces discussing the theme of Children’s Mental Health Week, as well as ways that children and young people can get involved at home. It will be hosted by Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell and CBBC Presenter and Place2Be Champion Rhys Stephenson.

During this week’s lessons, we will be preparing our persuasive speech to read at the trial of Robin Hood! Please do not rush ahead and write your speech all at once as there is a focus of grammatical terms for each section, so make sure you listen to the video, completed the Grammar warm-ups that are linked and try to include these features in your writing.

Big Write

We have a very exciting story writing competition to take part in this week for Big Write! Miss Lineker has been busy planning the competition to get your creative ideas down on paper! There are prizes to be won and entries have to be with Miss Lineker by Monday 8th February at 1pm!

Please click in the link in the timetable to watch a video to hear more about this competition. 

You have been given the opening to a story (please see the document below) and you have to continue it! You can take the reader on whatever journey you like – you have complete freedom to express yourself in this way!

Please read the document carefully and then you may want to follow this structure which may take longer than one lesson:

  • Brainstorm of ideas;
  • Planning your story;
  • Writing a first draft;
  • Editing and developing your ideas;
  • Publishing
  • Sending your story to Miss Lineker (I would also love to read them!) by Monday 8th February 1pm


Our reading challenging is continuing. You can still win tokens for reading for pleasure, completing a comprehension activity (below) or joining me for story time. Just let me know what you have done and you will be entered into the competition every Friday afternoon.

The first of our reading comprehensions this week will conclude the questions we have linked to the poem ‘The Listeners’.
