Over the half term I would like you to use the story of the 'skull' in Carrier's war and the story of the skull you heard at Lancaster Castle, as inspiration for you to create your own cautionary tale! Remember how stories are structured, think about your readers journey through the story, make sure you use your amazing descriptive skills and vocabulary choice to paint a detailed picture for your reader.

I have created you all a storybird login so that you can choose how you publish your work, either on line or as a paper copy. You can illustrate your work! Perhaps you could read it to your family at Halloween! Have fun!

Also, quick 10minute maths and literacy exercises.

Keep learning your spellings and times tables!

How many scary stories can you read over half term! I am going to read 'Legend of Sleepy Hollow'.
