Week 2


English Task

Reading Task

Maths Task

Day 1

To Ronald,


                        I am writing this letter to inform you that I will no longer be marrying you! You may be a lean, clean prince, but you don’t have any brains and you are a bum!


Look at the opening of my example letter that we looked at last week. Then, look back at your letter plan from Friday. Today, you will be writing the opening to your own letter. Use the letter templates below, type or write in a notebook at home.


Each day please could you read your school book or a book with an adult at home.


During the week, it is also important to continue learning phonics.


Go to the Phonics play website and play the free phonics games for phase 5. Picnic on Pluto is a good game to practice real and nonsense words.

Day 2

Last week, the wicked, evil dragon burned my castle down and abducted you. I was left naked, cold and alone, so I decided to rescue you. It seemed like the kind thing to do at the time, but I didn’t know you would turn out to be so heartless!


Look at the next part of the letter. In the example, I am talking about what happened and why I decided to rescue the prince. Can you write a part about what happened? Continue your writing in the same place as yesterday.

Day 3

I wore a paper bag because I didn’t have any clothes. I risked my life! I had to trick a fire breathing dragon. I could have died for you and your neat, ridiculous haircut. And, what did you say? You said that I was dirty, smelled like ash and didn’t look like a princess!


Read the next part of the letter. I am now talking about how hard it was to try and rescue the prince! What did you do to try and save your prince/princess or friend?

e.g. I had to…

Continue your writing once again. Try to use ‘but’ to extend one of your sentences.

Day 4

Well! Let me tell you something. The wedding is off! You should know that it is what is on the inside that counts. I may not have been clean, but I was kind, brave and brilliant.

          I never want to speak to you again. You are a ridiculous,          self-centered, unkind ogre.

          Yours sincerely, 

Princess Elizabeth.


Today, read the ending of my letter. Are you telling your prince you won’t marry them? Or that you won’t be a good friend any more? Write an ending to your letter. You could challenge yourself by using a noun phrase e.g. self-centered, unkind ogre.

Day 5

Today, look back at your letter and with support from an adult, choose one part to improve. This could be a spelling, or a missing capital letter or full stop. Or you could improve by adding a noun phrase. Then, read your letter aloud.
