Half Term Writing Task - The Cave (continued)
Last week, you were asked to write the beginning to a story about a dark and mysterious cave.
Your half term writing task is to write the middle and end to this story.
At the end you should have a gripping story full of adjectives to make your writing more interesting.
You are standing at the edge of the mysteriously dark cave.
What can you see?
What can you smell?
How do you feel?
Are you alone?
How did you end up there?
You are going to write the beginning of your story about the cave. Your story should include lots of adjectives to describe the cave. Use the questions above to help you think about what you want to write.
Let your imagination run wild :)
Firstly, click the link and watch the video. You are going to write a newspaper article about the video you have watched. It is your job to pretend you are the reporter, think about how the lighthouse keeper, villagers and people in the boat were feeling.
Look carefully at the attached picture and read the opening paragraph. Use your creative writing skills to continue the story using lots of description to captivate your reader. Remember to use adjectives, adverbs, paragraphs, punctuation and speech.
Below, you will find information and activities that will aid your child’s transition into Year Four.

Gran Can You Rap?
We had so much fun learning about poetry. Our favourite piece of poetry was Gran Can You Rap?
We got into groups and created our own version of this poem and then performed the poetry to our friends in class.
WOW Week - Art
During this WOW week we looked at Vincent Van Gogh.
The children produced a range of Art pieces which were then displayed to parents/carers.
We also chose parts of Van Gogh's life to perform to the rest of the class.
Here are some photos of us creating those pieces.
