English Activities

Happy half-term everyone!

Tuesday 16th February 2021 is Pancake Day! If you would like to do some writing activities over the half-term break, you could design your perfect pancake to make on Tuesday 16th and then write out the recipe for your friends! You can find some optional resources for Pancake Day below. 

If you would like some fun reading activities, the website https://authorfy.com/10minutechallenges/ has some great 10 minute reading challenges for children of all ages. Some great example of a challenge set is one by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet, authors of 'No-Bot', where you can create your own robot out of household items.  Kate Pankhurst, author of the 'Fantastically Great Women' series, has set a lovely illustration challenge in which you have to design an illustration of yourself as a character saving the planet. Think about your own interests, what element of climate change you would want to tackle, etc. and remember to be creative with your character design!

And there are many, many more!

We hope you enjoy the activities!
