100 Word Challenge

Since the start of term we have been once again encouraging the children to take part in the 100 Word Challenge activity run by 
Each week, a new prompt is published and the challenge is to write 100 words using the prompt (which may be a picture, a selection of words or a phrase). Each week we choose some of the work produced by our children to publish on our own 100WC blog and forward them for viewing by Team100WC. Team100WC view work produced by children from all over the world and they nominate work to be included in the weekly Special Showcase.
This week Lexi became our first writer to be included in the Special Showcase this year for her story: The professor and the crocodile.

Homework update 100 word challenge

This week we are going for five words. They must all be in your writing but can be in any order. The key is to plan beforehand so you get them all in and it tells a story.
The words are:
professor    crocodile    purple    twisted    difficult
Obviously, your story will need a character and I think these words give you a couple to choose from!
Paper copies by Friday 29th, on Edmodo by 30th September.

Friday, 22 September 2017


Now the 11+ is over we are going to be setting regular homework. To get us started we are asking for two pieces of writing to be completed. 
The new 100 Word Challenge will be added to Edmodo on Sunday and has to be completed by the following Saturday. (More about the 100 word challenge here). Some of the work children produce for the 100 Word Challenge will be published on our blog for the world to read!
The second piece of work is to write a biography of a character from one of Roald Dahl's books. We have been looking at biographical/autobiographical writing in English so we expect you to use the features we have been learning about, especially adjectives and correct verb tenses. This piece of work needs to be handed in by Friday 29th September.

Work can be completed on Edmodo or on paper.
