You are now going to write the 'English' section. Use these question prompts to make notes on a piece of paper. Read your sentences back to check that they make sense. Double check that you have used capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Once you have checked your draft copy, write your sentences neatly on your final sheet.


What is your teacher really good at? Are they good at creating interesting sentences? Are they good at modelling spellings? Are they good at thinking of adjectives?

Are they good at reading stories? Which story did you enjoy listening to the most? Some of the stories we have read include: The Healthy Wolf, The Lonely Beast, The Snow Queen and The Boy Who Cried Wolf.

What do they enjoy doing?

How does your teacher make English fun and interesting?

Is there anything they could do to improve?


Here is Miss Sykes' report for Mrs Stansfield:


Mrs Stansfield is a fantastic English teacher. She is really good at thinking of interesting sentences that include lots of adjectives and similes. I loved it when she read 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' with so much expression. Mrs Stansfield loves to model spellings on the board for me to learn and use in my own writing. She always gives me lots of time to share my ideas with a partner.


Next Step: To keep sharing new vocabulary with me to use in my own writing.

Lunch time:  You must all be ready for lunch by now.


Guided Reading:

Today we are going to read the story “The cautious Caterpillar”.

Task 2:



Today we are going to find out what seaside holidays were like 100 years ago.


Go through the information on the PowerPoint about why seaside holidays started becoming popular in Victorian times. Look at the pictures on the PowerPoint of seaside holidays between 1900 and 1920.




What can you see in these pictures?

Go through the information on the slides about what seaside holidays at this time were like, e.g. bathing suits, Punch and Judy shows, carousels, donkey rides, etc.

How many of these things would we still do on a beach holiday?


Activity 1:

Look at the Postcard Sheet showing two different postcards that Victorian children wrote about their seaside holiday. Read the postcards and then complete the table to show what you have found out about seaside holidays from the postcards.




Activity 2:

Use the seaside holiday pictures from the past. Write down all the things that people did on a beach holiday.





 Extension Task:

Ask children to draw or paint a picture to show what a seaside holiday would have been like 100 years ago.
