Spring poem

It’s Spring, for your blog work I want you to write a poem based on Springtime. Think about how it’s the start of new life, the lambs in the field, the bulbs growing in the ground, the weather becoming warmer and how everything seems to become new again.

Your poem should include similes, metaphors, imagery, onomatopoeia and alliteration.


This week is officially the start of Spring. This is the season where the Earth comes to life again after a period of sleep through the winter, new animals are born and the flowers and trees start to grow new leaves.

What do you think about when you think of Spring? Describe the changes that take place.


Fox Hunting


Fox hunting has been banned in this country, there are arguments on both sides of this law.

  1. Fox hunting is a sport, it is cruel, foxes should be allowed to live unharmed etc.
  2. It keeps the number of foxes under control, foxes kill many farm animals, it is an English tradition etc

Think about these arguments, include some of your own and write an answer to the question:
Q: Should fox hunting be allowed in this country?

Remember to include connectives and a range of sentence types.

Who do you admire?

We have just finished a literacy unit on biographies where we looked at different famous people.

We all know people that we admire and aspire to be like.

It might be a famous sportsperson, it might be someone off television, it might be someone in school or a member of your family.

Who do you admire and why. Remember to give really clear reasons for your choice.

Keeping healthy

I want you to list the top ten things that you need to do to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It might be that you already do some of them or it might be that you need to start doing a lot of them!

Have a good think about what the top ten would be on your list.

Remember to make suggestions about what other people in the class could do that would help them.

Remember to write in full sentences, check your punctuation before pressing POST and also check your spelling.
