We are starting our Christmas Writing Unit today, based on the book 'Charles Dickens - A Christmas Carol, Retold by Tony Mitton'


 1st  Look at the copy of the first image from the book (with the text removed).

This is the first image in the story

I would like you to study it carefully and guess the themes of the story from the image.

Make a list of two, three or four possible themes with a reason. E.g. ‘The theme of loneliness as he is alone at a table’ or ‘fear as the illustration is dark and foreboding.’ etc.


 2nd  Read the descriptive story openers

Highlight, or think of one or two short sections within each opener that you find most intriguing or engaging as a reader.


 3rd   Choose one story theme from the image of the man at the table. 

Develop a word bank of vocabulary that you can use in your story opener tomorrow.

Consider similes, alliteration and personification.


 4th   See your spelling list for this week (below).


We are starting a unit on geometry (shapes and angles).

Print out one of the pages and try to copy the picture by replicating it underneath the original.


Use an HB pencil or a fine black ink flow type pen, such as a Frixion, Pilot v5, Pilot v7, Uniball or something similar.
