English Lessons


The booklet below is provided by talk4writing and is designed for children to work both independently and with a bit of support. All activities can be done alone, however there are some that will be more enjoyable for children if you or someone else can join in. The activities in this booklet are all on the theme of superheroes. The three superheroes Jo Awesome, Raja Extraordinary and Sammy Exceptional will guide you through the activities.


The activities in this booklet are:

Reading superhero fact files

Reading a superhero story ‘Playground Rescue’

Vocabulary challenge

Thinking about the story – your response

Thinking about the story – questions

Sammy’s creative challenge

Raja’s craft challenge

Sammy’s poetry challenge

Jo’s get-active challenge

You may wish to ask your child to also keep a 'remote learning' diary during this time for them to practise their use of handwriting, spelling, capital letters and full stops while at home.
