Half term writing challenge
Mrs Newing is setting another writing challenge for those of you who would like to take part. This is an ideal opportunity for you and your child to work together on a mini writing project. The purpose of which is to inspire children to get involved in activities to improve their literacy- and have lots of fun at the same time! There will be a prize of a Kindle Fire 7” for each Reception/KS1 and KS2 winner; these will be announced in our Monday assembly on 13th June. We will also post a range of the writing on the website for everyone to view! The challenge will be set on the website and read aloud in class, you will have half term to complete the activity and hand it to your teacher.
The "Friendly Robot" challenge.
Have a look at the picture of the robot. Who is he or she? What is it called? What has happened to the bee? Are they friends? How did it get into the forest? Can you describe the robot and create a story with it as a character? Remember to use Power of 3 (adjectives) Think about your sentence types (question, statement, command, exclamation) and punctuation.
Perhaps it is has crash landed on Earth?
Maybe the bee has landed on his planet and he is helping it get home?
Maybe the robot is stranded in the forest and the bee helps him get out?
You have two weeks to complete the challenge.

The 'mystery' challenge...
Take a look at the image below, where does the path lead? Your challenge is to write a description of the mystery setting at the end of the path. Is it a haunted house full of ghastly surprises or a secret garden filled with enchanted creatures and plants? The choice is yours but make sure you remember to use lots of descriptive language including: similes, metaphors, alliteration and personification. You will need to create a picture of the setting in the reader's mind. Be as creative and imaginative as possible! Good Luck!
