  • You have all had a great week, either at Runway's end or on Nature week. Your task for this morning is to write a letter to a child in Year 4 to tell them about it. What was your favourite part? Your biggest challenge? The bit that made you laugh most? Your letter needs to be persuasive, and needs to have an opening and closing paragraph, as well as at least two other paragraphs. You can include pictures too.


  • Today, Winnall Primary School is closed today because of Storm Eunice. Research storms, and make an information poster/ factfile. What are they? How are they named? How often do they occur?    What else can you find out about storms?

Indigo Class English Project

Hi Indigo Class,


I hope you had a good time last week and are settling into a new routine! 


I have a little English project for you to have a look at. I would like you to watch the video below. 


CGI 3D Animated Short "The Small Shoemaker" - by La Petite Cordonnier Team | TheCGBros

When you have watched the video I have four activities for you to do. 


Do 1 activity a day! Each activity should take around 30 minutes (feel free to spend longer on one if you are enjoying it laugh).


Task 1: Draw a picture of the little shoemaker (this can be a stick man or gingerbread man). Around him, write the different thoughts and emotions he has throughout the video. *Look at the website below if you need help with this*


BONUS POINTS for EXPLAINING when and why he feels like the given word. 




Task 2: Draw your own SHOE! Not just any shoe, your very own MAGICAL SHOE! Firstly, draw and decorate the shoe (make it as colourful as you can, you can use sharpies at home wink). Then around the outside, label and annotate the magical features the shoe has.





Task 3: Write a short diary entry from the perspective of one of the characters. This could be the little shoemaker, the new shoemaker or even one of the shoes. 

PARENT NOTE: Focus on capital letters, full stops and neat handwriting. 

BONUS POINTS for EXPLAINING in detail the emotions and thoughts you felt as you watched what was happening. 




Task 4: Write a letter from the little shoemaker to the new shoemaker. You choose what you put in this letter!

PARENT NOTE: Focus on capital letters, full stops and neat handwriting. 

BONUS POINTS for paragraphing work in sensible sections and using Point Evidence Explain (yes that's PEE) to justify your thoughts. 




I would love to hear any feedback you have! Please send a message to the class email to let us know how it has gone!
