Here is a fun text for your last comprehension this term. It has two tasks attached. The first is a comprehension, try to ensure you that you back up your answers using the text when needed.

The second task is to complete the text, you have two different options for this part of the task. Try to make your text as interesting as possible but it still needs to fit in with the original text.



Please continue to write daily entries in your diary. Don't forget to use ambitious punctuation such as colons, semi-colons and dashes. Write about how you are adjusting to home schooling. Have you been out at all? What did it feel like? 

After the Easter holiday, I will be setting writing tasks linked to the book 'The Wind in the Willows' so if you have a copy of the book, start to read it over Easter. If not, you can listen to it for free on Audible (see link on home page).

  • Simple Present Tense
  • Present Progressive Tense (sometimes called the Present Continuous)

VE Day

We have almost reached the end of our World War 2 topic! However, I would like you to learn about the end of the war and the celebrations that took place.

Read through the slides in the powerpoint and possibly do some more research about the end of the war. Then, imagine that you are Winston Churchill. Write a Victory speech to be broadcast to the British public. Think about the hardship people have endured and the bravery of all British citizens. You may wish to include aspects of all your learning on WW2:

  • Evacuation
  • Rationing
  • Dig for Victory campaign
  • Women workers in the factories and in the fields
  • The bravery of the fighter pilots in the Battle of Britain
  • The bravery of the soldiers who fought during D-Day.
  • The many sacrifices that have been made over the years.


You may wish to listen to some of Winston Churchill's speeches for inspiration!


Please send your speeches to the office and I will post them on the gallery!
