Have you ever read or watched Horrid Henry? This reading comprehension is an extract from one of the books written by Francesca Simon. Children should write their answers in full sentences - using capital letters and full stops!

These 3 sheets will provide you with an opportunity to revise the spelling, grammar and punctuation taught in Year 2. Make sure you pay attention to careful spelling and reading instructions carefully!

Write a story!


Use this story prompt to write your own short story. Remember it should have a beginning, middle and end.

To bring it to life, include adjectives and adverbs. To make it more interesting, use conjunctions to extend your sentences.


Co-ordinating conjunctions - and, but, or, so

Sub-ordinating conjunctions - because, when, if, that


Are these sentences questions or commands? Choose the right level for your child. 1 star is the easiest and 3 stars is the most difficult.

Can you join your handwriting? Can you size your letters correctly?

In English, children are required to make sure their writing is sized correctly. This means that capitals should be larger than lower case letters (unless they have ascenders - b, d, f, h, k, l, t). Children should not join their capital letters.


Find a poem that you enjoy reading. This might be in a book, or you could find one on the internet. You can find poems for children on . Copy it out in your neatest handwriting and e-mail it to Miss Hendry so she can be suitably impressed!
