writing task

For this week's writing task we would like you to read one of our old favourites,  'Room on the Broom' by Julia Donaldson.  If you don't have a copy of the story there is a link to an online one here:


You might want to talk about who is the main character in the story? What is the setting for the story?  What was the problem? What was the solution?  You could even ask your child to come up with a what happened next story of their own. I wonder where they went on their new truly magnificent broom?

Once you've had your lovely story time, we'd like the children to have a go at writing the Super Sentence (we did these each week at school): Is there room on the broom?

There are some 'tricky tracker' words in this sentence (there, the) , feel free to write these words down for your child to copy, as well as the 'oo' sound (as in room and broom) that not all children have come across in their phonic sessions yet.  I'm sure they will have fun with coming  up with a few more 'oo' words - they usually get a giggle!

Good luck, and as always message us if you have any questions.
