Today, I would like to start off with something a little different. It is called Jailbreak. All of these dull adjectives have been put in jail for boring teachers to sleep! Can you think of 4 new adjectives for each word which mean the same thing (synonyms) but are far more exciting? Write one adjective on each padlock to keep the boring word in jail.


Pick your favourite adjective from each prisoner and write one sentence containing each of the words below. Remember to use capital letters and full stops when you need to!

I would also like you to have a go at the 'Year 3 Spring Revision Set 1' activity on Classroom Secrets Kids.

Today I have attached a news article about a tennis match. Read the 2 pages and then answer the 8 questions in your exercise book. The answers are linked at the bottom of the page, so you can mark your own work.




  1. How much does the London News cost?
  2. What are the main things written about in this article? Choose 3 things.
  3. What does it mean that Angelique Kerber might 'go a long way in the competition'?
  4. What does the fact that 'Centre Court' is capitalised tell you about the words?
  5. Why will Novak Djokovic want to make a 'new memory' at Wimbledon?
  6. What does the word 'halted' mean? Use a dictionary to find out.
  7. Why will there be 'a lot of pressure' on Angelique Kerber?
  8. What do the italics in the final paragraph tell you about what is written?
