Good morning everyone and welcome to Friday’s home learning activities.


As last week I did not post the BBC Maths Challenge, have ago at last weeks. Follow the link below and have a go.

Last Weeks BBC Bitesize challenge.


Using your design from yesterday, today you are going to write a short story based on your design. Think of your short story in three main parts.

Beginning – Character makes flying machine.

He/she tests it but it doesn’t quite work. Maybe it crashes!

Middle – Character finds some inspiration and makes alterations to the flying machine.

End – Flying machine works or doesn’t work!

Write some ideas/notes for each part.

Now write your short story. Remember to include some Year 3 sentence types/skills that you have learnt, e.g.

use different conjunctions in your writing (e.g. when, although, since, before, after, until)

use adverbs in your writing (e.g. carefully, happily, soon, silently, next)

use inverted commas (speech marks) to show a character is speaking

use prepositions (e.g. above, below, beneath, beyond, within, outside)

Decide if you are writing in first person (I) or third person (he/she). Make sure you keep it the same throughout the story.

Keep re-reading your story as you write to check it makes sense and you are happy with it. Check for spelling and punctuation too! I cant wait to see how your stories turn out, be sure to send them to me at
