Reading

If you would like some more resources for reading, please see the Purple Mash website. You already have your login details for this website. Have a go at the  reading tasks I have set on Purple Mash from the Serial Mash section.

To find these, you click on '2dos' on the home screen. They will appear on Monday 6th July and can be done at any point up until Friday 10th July. You can choose from the easier text: Chapters 3, 4 and 5 of Anna's Sports Day  and the relevant tasks or the harder text of Chapters 3, 4 and 5 of Jimmy T and Mia B Ferocious Cake-off and the tasks about that story.

Writing task

The day the crayons quit

  • Read the story: The Day the Crayons Quit.  Think about what each colour is used for  and how it feels. 
  • Choose one of the crayons and write a letter as this crayon to Duncan. You letter must cover:
  1. How the crayon feels
  2. Why it is upset
  3. What it wants Duncan to do to resolve the problem.
  • You can use the template below to write your letter or a blank piece of paper.
I would love to read your writing when you have completed the task. You can share what you have done with me by asking your parents to email it to me, or by uploading your work to Purple Mash and saving it in your 'my work' folder. This is simpler if you have typed up your story, but if you haven't then just take a photograph of your hand written work and ask your parents to email the images to me.
