Extra Writing Practise and Times Tables Ideas

If you would like your child to get some extra practise at writing at a Year 5 level, they could try using any of these story starters as a launchpad into their writing. Remember to get your child to re-read their work and edit to make improvements and to check that it makes sense.


This next website is a fantastic resource which can help creative writing. The children could develop word choice and use a thesaurus to describe the images, or they could fix the “sick sentences” or work on their inference skills by answering the questions.

Maybe you could even do a “rock slam” against your child on Times Table Rock Stars!
