Upper Key Stage 2 English Challenges: 
 
Once you have finished the English learning, try one of these additional challenges. You could also complete one of these as a warm up to break up your learning throughout the day. 

Creative Writing Challenges 

  • Think of some questions that you could use in an interview with a family member. What would you like to ask them? Could this link to your history learning? Write down their answers or record them using a mobile device.
  • Write a letter to a friend or family member. What would you like to tell them about?
  • Write a postcard to your favourite author
  • Create a menu for today’s meals that you will be eating (or cooking!) today
  • Choose a toy, a household object or something in your food cupboard and make an advert to encourage people to buy it!
  • Write a set of instructions to teach people how to play a simple game.
  • Write a news report about something that has happened to you recently.
  • Write a book review of the book you are reading. What is it about? Who would you recommend it to?
  • Make some “top ten” lists. What are your top ten book characters, or books made into films, for example?
  • Make a stop motion animation that tells a story. We like Stop Motion Studio on the App Store, but others are available to download too.
  • Create a comic strip that shows what you did yesterday, or what you would love to do tomorrow.
  • Read the dictionary (or another book in your home) and make a note of some words that you have not seen before. What do they mean?
  • Write a letter to your teacher. What would you like to tell them?
  • Choose characters from different books and imagine that they came together in a new story. Imagine what they might do together.
  • Think of an alternative ending to one of your favourite books.
