Dear Year 4,

This will be the last piece of work that builds to an independent piece of writing that I will be setting you this year.  I hope that you have enjoyed these writing tasks, and I look forward to seeing how your writing has grown over the year when I receive your final piece of writing at the end of this topic.

In this new booklet, you will meet a boy called Sammy and a Goblin named Treerumple and go with them on a magical journey to the special Tree Goblin world and then as far as your imaginations can take you.

This week I would like you to complete the following pages of the activity booklet:


Monday:  Read or listen to the story.  Pages 3, 4. 5 and 6 or online at

Tuesday:  Page 7, 8 and 9.  These pages will test your retrieval skills and help you to develop as a text detective.

Wednesday:  Pages 10 and 11 and 12.  A comic strip activity and a word sorting game which will help to check your understanding of words.  Use a dictionary here if you are unsure of any meanings.

Thursday:  Page 13, 14 and 15 Characters.  Here you will invent new Goblin characters and create fact sheets about three of the Goblins you invent.

Friday:  Page 16, Settings.  Here you have to identify things that the Goblin can see then as part of your artwork this week you will draw a picture of the Goblin party annotating it with details of what can be seen.
