English Activities



Below you will find activities for reading, writing and SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar).


There are 5 reading comprehensions - one for each day of the school week. Please ensure that your child is also reading for at least 20 minutes a day (remembering to complete your accelerated reader quizzes) as well as doing these activities - reading really is important!


The writing activity will take them the whole week. It would be really good if they follow the same format that they do in school which is plan (a planning sheet for them to use is below), write a first draft, edit and improve and then lastly, write the final copy in neat. The children will be familiar with this process which will make it a lot more helpful for them. 


There are a variety of SPaG activities for the children to complete independently. The answers are also on the document which will allow them to either mark the work by themselves or for another family member to do it. 


Any problems, please email your child's class teacher.






This week, we have included some '3 mark' questions for you to have a go at; remember to try and include quotes from the text (where possible) to support your answers.



Linking to our topic, this week we would like you to write an information leaflet about earthquakes. Below is a research sheet that you will need to do first. After you have completed that, there is a box it up sheet to plan your information leaflet. How you want to set it out, is completely up to you!


Make sure that you use all of the resources below to help you complete this task.

SPaG Activities


With the spelling activity, use these as your spellings for this week and get a family member to test you on them like we normally do on a Friday morning!
