Please look at the picture below, then choose some of the activities to do in your exercise book from school. You could share your learning with your teachers by asking a parent to help you send a picture of your learning to your class email address.


Story starter!

Ever since she was little, Emily could control the weather. Whenever she felt sad it started to rain…


Sentence challenge!

Can you include a complex sentence containing a main clause and a subordinate clause?

Can you separate the clauses using a comma?

Can you use one of the following conjunctions to link your clauses: but, or, yet, so, because, and…

Emily was feeling extremely sad, so

She was angry that she had been left out, and

Being outside often cheered Emily up, yet


Question time!

What causes the the weather to change in the story? What about in reality?

Can you think of different types of weather and match them up with different feelings that Emily experiences? For example, it is sunny when she is happy.

What is your favourite type of weather and why?

Do Emily’s powers work without the umbrella?

Do Emily’s parents have similar powers do you think?

What problems/benefits are there to Emily’s powers?


Perfect picture!

Can you draw how the picture would look if Emily was:

  • happy
  • angry
  • confused
  • lonely
  • excited
  • nervous
  • panicking


Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?
