Today's challenge



Copy today's words - ache, headache, technology

Again look for the hard 'ch' sound.  Practise the spellings using your favourite strategy.



Imagine you are sitting around the campfire – it’s very dark, you can only see the flames flickering, you can hear owls hooting and the crackling of the fire.


Write a spooky story to tell around the campfire.


You can make your story spookier by using some short sentences and ellipses to create suspense.  Remember to use your senses too – include sounds and smells to make everything feel more real.


Make sure you plan your story first - you could draw a storyboard or plan 3 points for each paragraph.


Have a look at the example below to help you. You could borrow some of the ideas!
