Today’s Activity: On oxford owl change the heading series (second tab) to traditional tales. Choose one of the traditional tales to read and complete the activities that follow.



Last week we began thinking up and planning an adventure story, now it is time to start writing it.

Today we are going to write the beginning of our stories. I would like you to include similes in your writing, this in when we describe something by using a comparison.

For example: as strong as an ox

tall like a lamppost

In the beginning of a story we would normally describe the weather, what time of day it is and introduce one of our characters. If you like you could also draw a picture.

Here is my beginning:

One stormy night, when the wind was howling through the streets, a fantastical creature came flying through a rain cloud. He was tall like a lamp post and as strong as an ox. He wore a funny pink hat on his head and always carried a golden trumpet in his hand. Suddenly he turned around as fast as a flash and looked down the street. He could hear someone, but it was too dark to see them. So he hid behind a very tall building that was grey like an elephant.

This week, we will be focusing on 2D shapes and their properties. Please watch this video to refresh your memory.

Activity: Can you spot a square, rectangle, circle, triangle and oval around your house and point them out to an adult?

For example:

You might say: ‘’I found a circle as my coffee table is in the shape of a circle.’’

Challenge – Can you count how many corners (vertices) and sides these 2D shapes have?
