Hi everyone,

Here’s your homework for the break…

Let me know how your holiday is going by adding a little note to me in the comments section below.

Top Tips;

-Only use your first name please

-Extend your sentences using a conjunction i.e. although, before. after

-Show off your knowledge of expanded noun phrases – don’t forget the comma between the adjectives i.e. enormous, purple bouncy castle!

Enjoy your break

  1. Hello Ms .Henderson! In the Half-Term I went to my dance session on Saturday. Then straight after that, we went to London to celebrate my grandma’s birthday and we surprised her then had a birthday dinner. Then on Sunday, My grandma came home with us and she’s staying for a week! Then on Monday, My brother went basketball and I went to go to a chess club. It was really fun. Then today, I have got a dance club preparing me for a dance concert. I hope everyone is enjoying their Half-term and I can’t wait to see what you guys have been doing. Bye!

    • Hi Isabella,
      It sounds like you’ve been incredibly busy! Make sure you find a little time for a rest – or perhaps a little time with a good book 🙂
      Enjoy the rest of your break,
      Mrs Henderson

  2. It’s really enjoyable to have a break and fun but I made sure I did some studying other than having fun all the time and getting prepared for my sisters birthday!☺

    • Hi Sarah,
      Great to hear from you. I hope you had a great time at your sister’s birthday party.
      Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

  3. Hi Mrs Henderson, hope you are having a good half term. So on
    Sunday and Saturday I played football a drew on Saturday and lost on Sunday. Today I am going foot golf with my friend. We are going to have a Halloween party and we are going trick or treating with Alfie’s friend. Then tomorrow I am playing football on Saturday and Sunday.I went football training Tuesday and Thursday I didn’t go on Wednesday because it was cancelled.

  4. I am not playing football Sunday now, there is no fixture. So I am going to watch Forest with my dad and grandad ⚽️

    • Hi Charlie,

      It sounds like you’ve been very busy. I thought there would be lots of time for football your way. Shame about the score for the Fulham game -I’m sure it will go better on Friday against QPR.
      Enjoy the halloween party too 🙂

I also played with lots of Lego and played with my brother and we did loads of funny and silly things ! I read some books as well . Bye !

    • Hi Francis! That sounds like a very clever idea and a good way to spend some of your break. It made me laugh out loud 🙂

  8. Hi Mrs Henderson,
    Over the half term holiday I have enjoyed going out for long walks with my family, kicking the leaves and searching for chestnuts.
    I have decided I do not like the insides of pumpkins because they are too slimy and stringy. I do like carving them and putting candles in them to light them up.
    I have miss school and all of my friends and I am looking forward to seeing you all when we are back together again xx.

    • Hi Josie,
      Hunting for chestnuts in the woodland sounds like a lovely way to spend some time. I completely agree with what you feel about pumpkin seeds too – very slimy and sticky. Pumpkin pie is worth a try though if you get chance 🙂
      Looking forward to seeing you soon,
      Mrs Henderson

  9. Hi Mrs. Henderson
    This week I went to Skegness and I stayed in a caravan park called golden palm. The first day we didn’t explore much but we went to play arcade games and my sister got many tickets. On Wednesday, we went to an amusement park, it was fantastic. I played on a lot of rides and I really liked it. After that we went for swimming and there were two slides. The first one was a bit slow the second one was very fast. Overall I had an amazing week.

    • Hi Tevin,
      Great to hear from you. I’m so pleased you’ve had a busy and fun week. I think I would have enjoyed the arcade games too 🙂
      See you very soon,
      Mrs Henderson

  10. Hello Mrs Henderson, hello all my year 4 friends! I am having a great time. I definately appreciated that I could get up later than I usually do. I played with my friends and I took part in one birthday party, too. I enjoyed watching cartoons and movies with my mum in the evenings. Needless to say, it’s Halloween tomorrow, therefore I have decorated my house and made some beautiful pumpkin carving. It is going to be a double celebration tomorrow as it’s also my cat’s third birthday. I’m going to create a super home playground for her and give her plenty of her favourite snacks. She is going to have a meaty birthday cake instead of a sweet one, obviously 🙂 I hope you are all having a great time during the half-term. I also didn’t forget to challenge myself with some tricky maths questions. See you all soon.

    • Hi Alexander,

      What a wonderful description of your holidays! You have taken time and care over it. Well done.
      You have clearly kept yourself busy. I think your cat is really going to enjoy her birthday and her special cat-friendly birthday cake!
      Looking forward to seeing you when we get back,
      Mrs Henderson

  11. I have had an amazing half term. Firstly, I went shopping and went to the sparkly, huge smiggle store. I bought a new school bag and lunch box. I have been to funky pots with my cousin and we painted some colourful, fun pots. I did some cool, amazing bowling with sienna and also played in the bright, noisy arcade. I have put some spooky scary Halloween decorations up at home. Today I went to jasmine’s fun and cool birthday party and had a great time. I can’t wait to go trick or treating tomorrow.

    • Hi Amelia,

      You’ve written a lovely recount of your break. I can spot lots of expanded noun phrases 🙂
      You sound like you have been very busy over the last two weeks. I am jealous of your visit to funky pots – I hope you had chance for a little rest too.
      See you soon,
      Mrs Henderson

  14. Over half term i have been to the cinema,pumpkin picking with my cousin beau and went to Clip & Climb for a birthday party. I also went to 2 spooky scary Halloween parties where i dressed up as a skeleton and played lots of fun games. I played lots of Uno and Fortnite with my dad and went on lots of trips with my mum.

      Thanks for your message – it’s great to hear from you. I love the sound of click and climb! You sound like you’ll need a holiday after all that!

      Mrs Henderson

  15. Hi Mrs Henderson
    I hope you are having a great time. On the half term I felt great and joyfull. Me and my brother played with my bunny and we played that: we had a snack and we said her to “Twist around” and if she did we gave snacks. On the second half of the break we went to Red Kangaroo, we went to the Clifton Leasure Center, after the we went to the shops to buy Lego to build and have some fun building. I did Lego called Lego Ninjago and it was fun building but it was a little bit hard and I planned building more. My mum had very hard Lego to build because she had owl Hedwig from Harry Potter which was moving her head wings. In my opinion my brother had easy Lego to build because he built Lego Thor- robot from Avengers, but my mum think’s that it was more harder than I think. We went few times in cinema, we watched “Harry Potter” film, “The Croods”, “Adams Family”, “Ron’s gone wrong”, “Shang-Chi”, “Paw Patrol”, and some more but i can’t remember. It was so fun in half term but I am so happy to go back to school.

    • Hi Filip,

      You holiday sounds excellent – particularly your Lego challenges. I can imagine making a Hedwig model would be challenging – perhaps bring a photo to school when you’ve done it 🙂
      A lovely review to your holiday.
      Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow,
      Mrs Henderson

    • Hi Rhian,
