Hope you have had a nice weekend.

For this week’s school work please look at the details below.

Week Commencing 6th March


Spelling Rule- 

Your spelling rule for this week is…. Here are the words you need to practise. 

Adding the suffix ly 

Sadly, happily, finally, comically, usually, angrily, badly, differently, beautifully, honestly, lovely, quickly

Practise writing the words and write the words in sentences to make sure you understand what the words mean. 

You can also use the following website to practise your spelling rule by playing games.


I want you to write a diary entry from one of the children from the Railway Children story. You could be Bobbie, Phyllis or Peter. Write from their perspective, I want you to think about how they might have felt when the trees feel down onto the track and why they decided to help. 

You can use the reading comprehension sheets to help you. Don’t forget we have already read this story in our English lesson this will help you write your diary entry. 

Key points to think about when writing your diary- 

  • Why did they go out walking in the first place? 
  • How did they feel when they began to hear the noises?
  • Why did they decide to stay and help stop the train? 
  • Their thoughts and feelings when they were stood on the tracks trying to save the train from crashing. 

Key points when writing a diary entry:

  • Opening- Dear Diary
  • Write in the first person 
  • Write in the past tense (the event has already happened) 
  • Informal language 
  • Chronological order 
  • Detailed descriptions- describe what you could see, hear, feel etc. 
  • Closing- ‘From Miss Pyrah’ 

Don’t forget to include: 

  • Full stops and capital letters 
  • Subordinating conjunctions (if, so, because, which, when, however etc.) 
  • Fronted adverbials

Don’t forget to check your writing for missing words, spellings and punctuation.

Use the sentence structure steps like we do in class:

  1. Say your sentence out loud 
  2. Count how many words are in your sentence (using your fingers) 
  3. Write your sentence down
  4. Re-read your sentence and check for any mistakes (punctuation, spellings, missing words etc.) 

Week Commencing 30th March
