Egyptian tomb discovery!



In school, as a class we had been preparing to write a description of an Ancient Egyptian tomb discovery. I would like you now to write your description of that discovery! :)


Think about what we did in class:


We collected a range of descriptive vocabulary and organised this into the different senses.

  • What can you see?
  • What can you hear?
  • What can you smell?
  • What can you touch?
  • Can you taste anything?
  • How might you be feeling?


We also looked at a good example from last year and unpicked good features.

  • Paragraphs
  • A range of punctuation
  • Adjectives 
  • Conjunctions
  • Use of suffixes and prefixes, which we had been using in our spelling sessions


Think about all of this when you are writing your own description. I would love to see what you write by emailing it to I look forward to reading them! 


Keep smiling :)

Skylarks Kindness Story



Last week on our Kindness Calendar it asked us to create a class kindness story. As a class we decided that each child in the class would create their own character and decide on what act of kindness that could carry out. For example:

  • Positive Poppy - Helps someone with their shopping
  • Excellent Emma - Writes a positive note for someone


The children who were in school started to write their part of the story, telling the reader about the characters random act of kindness. Your character is your story, your can be as creative as your like! If your were in class and already wrote yours, could you now type it up on to the computer and email it to me? Or draw a picture to go with your story?


We already made one class books... now we can make our second! :)

For today's task I would like you to become the reader! Find a member of your family to read out your piece of writing to and teach them all about how the Egyptians used to live.


Once you have read it to them can you then work together to evaluate your work. Find 3 things that you and your family member really likes about your writing... your 3 stars! :) Then can you work together to come with 2 next steps... how could you make your writing EVEN better?! :)
