Week 4


English Task

Reading Task

Maths Task

Day 1

Last week, we made some decisions about where our story was going to be set. We also learned how to use ‘with’ to describe animals in our story. This week we will start by making our own story mountain. Download the worksheet below. You can draw and then write a short sentence about the beginning, built-up, problem, resolution and ending.

If you don’t have a printer, use paper to make your own story mountain.

Each time you start planning a new part, remember to look back at the story example (WAGOLL) to help you think about what may happen in each section of your story.

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

Day 3

Today, you will be filling in the key vocabulary box! This is the box that will help you when you are writing. Think back to the words you wanted to use to describe your setting or animals. Which ones do you really need to remember to use? You could think of putting those adjectives into a noun phrase e.g. a grey elephant with thick, wrinkly legs.

When you have finished this box, try to retell your story aloud from beginning to end!

Day 4

Once upon a Tuesday, the king was in a tremendous hurry as usual. “Goodnight!” he said and blew his son a royal kiss. It missed! It flew out of the window into the night. “Catch that kiss!” he screamed.

Look at the beginning of the example story. Today, you are going to have a go at starting your own story. Remember, a story usually starts with ‘Once upon a…’ and it helps set the scene. Note to parents: Depending on your child’s age, their opening may only be on sentence, or it may be two or three. E.g. Once upon a time, a king blew his son a bed time kiss, but it missed! 

Day 5

A brave knight clambered onto his valiant steed and chased after the kiss. He galloped after the kiss all the way to a thick, tropical jungle. It was dark. It was dangerous. It was hot.

Today, you will begin your build up! Look at the example above. Where did your knight travel to? What was it like? Add your writing onto the beginning that you started yesterday.
