Reading Task

Your reading challenge today is based on the next section of the text you read on Monday about Bumblebees. Read the text in the document below and then answer the questions. Make sure you write your answers in full sentences and use PEE (point, evidence, explain) if needed. 

Writing Task

Today’s writing challenge is to look at the picture and write something based on it.  You could write a newspaper report or a recount from the perspective of one of the people involved. 


Diamond in the Rough

Take a look at the word document below for some extra hints. 


In your writing, make sure you are trying to use the Year 5 skills that we have learned this year. You could use:

- a drop-in clause to add extra detail to your sentences

- figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification, onomatopoeia, alliteration) to exaggerate your strange story

- a variety of different sentence starters to make your story interesting (ISPACE sentence starters are a good place to start)

- Can you use some of the Year 5 and 6 spelling words?


Good Luck! Send us your completed pieces of writing, we would love to read them! We will give you some pointers on how you could make your story even better. You could hand-write your story or type it straight onto the document below.
