Leeds for Learning have set up a story competition.

The competition is free to enter and open to children aged 7 to 11 and the only rules are that the stories must be no more than 750 words and set in Yorkshire. Entries are encouraged to be "unique, exciting, and imaginative."

The winner will have their story performed by a storyteller as part of the Yorkshire Festival of Story 2020. Click on the link above to find out more.

I know we have some fantastic story- tellers in Year 6 - go on, give it a go!

Check on the History or VE day sub-pages for other writing ideas.

Read the ebook of Cogston House. 

It's more of a short story than a novel, with two alternative endings.

On the differentiated comprehensions, 1* is the most straightforward, 3*** the most difficult.

Subjects and objects can be quite confusing.

Revise what they are with this powerpoint.

Remember noun phrases are all the words that belong with the noun e.g. 'tall, quiet, boy.'
