All your English learning is about rockpools and the seaside this week. The five activities have been set out so you can work through them doing one a day and finish with writing your seaside story on Friday. Hopefully you will then be able to use all the learning from the week to do a brilliant story! However, if you choose to, you don't have to work through the activities from top to bottom - you can pick and choose the order you do them in.

Good listening is a very useful ability to have.

Writing is, as you know, very important too.


  • This piece of work needs both skills working together to write some rockpool sentences! You will need help from someone who can read the sentences out loud to you so you can listen and write down what they say. Listen carefully and use your letters and sounds learning to try and spell and unfamiliar words. Don’t worry though, you won’t have to remember the whole sentence, only few words at a time. You will need to use capital letters to begin sentences and full stops at the end.


  • Once you have finished and checked the sentences, you can illustrate one sentence or all of them. It is up to you!


  • You could also write some sentences to for someone else to write down. Will they get them all right?
  • Use the correct conjunction in each rockpool sentence then write some of your own using the different conjunctions in the box on the sheet.
  • Take a look at the seaside picture and then answer the questions.


       You could also be the teacher and write some questions for someone else to                       answer!

  • Listen to The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch story (link below) then think of a sandwich for the seagulls. You need to make sure the seagulls won’t like it so they will look for their lunch somewhere else!


  • Write an exciting and interesting seaside story using all your English skills! Who will be the characters in your story? Where will it be set? Will it be a real place or a made-up setting? Think of the different things that you can do at the seaside. They could be part of your story. It is all up to you who is in it and what happens!


  • Remember to use capital letters and full stops as well as conjunctions you know. Where you can, use exclamation marks or question marks and try to write some speech (dialogue) using inverted commas. Keep checking what you have written to make sure it makes sense and that other people could understand it and what is happening in the story.
  • Start your story on the half-lined page so you can draw a picture on it when you have finished.

I look forward to seeing how you get on!
