Pupil Work

Eva has been very busy at home and has written to tell us about the activities that she has chosen to complete for home learning. Great work Eva!


Thank you to Autumn for the lovely pieces of work she has been sending in. We really enjoyed her writing about a fictional animal called the Bogosaurus. Her description included several expanded noun phrases. Here is a sample:

'The Bogosaurus is a herbivore and it only eats a sweet, sticky, purple fruit called the bogo berry that only grows on the bogo palm tree on the island of Bogosaur.'


Autumn also sent in a riddle. Can you guess which animal it is about?

Not a mouse

But I am small

Not a rabbit

But I have a fluffy tail

Not a hedgehog

But I'm nocturnal

Not a vegan

But I love fruit and vegetables!


Keep it up Autumn - your range of work is lovely to see. 


Well done Autumn for designing an information leaflet about how to look after hamsters. It was eye-catching and informative and included some brilliant advice. What a lovely start to our 'animals' topic focus this week. 


Megan produced an excellent retelling of the traditional tale 'Little Red Riding Hood' - from the perspective of the wolf. It included a wonderful piece of writing, detailed artwork and computing skills too! Very impressive work Megan. 


It was lovely to receive a letter from Vanessa, sharing everything that she had been doing over Easter. Not only was it very detailed but it also demonstrated a great use of different fronted adverbials. Thank you Vanessa. 


Thank you to Megan for sending us her wonderful autobiography. What a super idea! It was lovely to see that so many of our key grammatical features had been included. We particularly enjoyed her use of expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbials. Here is a taster of her work...

'Just to be honest, I can't really remember when I was a baby, however, my mummy told me I was so cute and happy (apart from when I was being sick).'

' For my 4th birthday, I was especially lucky as I got a giant, princess castle that was nearly as big as me!'

'Furthermore, this is the year I started swimming lessons, even though I could already swim. It's good to have a good technique.'

Well done Megan!
