English – Writing:


Today, why not learn how to spell these tricky words. Or, if you think you already know them, get an adult or older sibling to test you! This blog post tells you some fun ways to practise spellings:

  • heard
  • heart
  • height
  • history

Spelling: This week we are going to work on adding suffixes that start with a vowel ‘ed’, ‘en’ and ‘ing’ to words containing more than one syllable. Click on the link below for more information.

Practise this week’s words using the look, cover, write, check technique. You can draw a grid like this out on a piece of paper:



Charlie and the chocolate factory, chapter 5, pages 23-24

“You mean people are actually going to be allowed to go inside the factory? Read it quickly what it says!” said Grandpa Joe excitedly.

“All right,” said Mr Bucket, “Listen.”

The newspaper notice said: I, Willy Wonka, have decided to allow five children to visit my factory this year. These lucky five will be shown around personally by me, and they will be allowed to see all the secrets and the magic of my factory. At the end of the tour, as a special present, all of them will be given enough chocolates and sweets to last them for the rest of their lives! So watch out for the Golden Tickets! Five Golden Tickets have been printed on golden paper, and these have been hidden underneath the ordinary wrapping paper of five ordinary bars of chocolate. These chocolate bars could be anywhere – in any shop in any town in any country in the world where Wonka’s Sweets are sold. And five lucky finders of these five Golden Tickets are the only ones who will be allowed to visit my factory and see what it’s like. Good luck and happy hunting! (Signed Willy Wonka)
