Reading Prompts



Writing weekly focus – Character Description


Our key text this half term is The Lost Happy Endings by Carol Ann Duffy. The main character is Jub who lives in her cosy hole in a forest. Jub has a job to do every evening. She takes her sack full of ‘Happy endings’ and climbs a huge oak tree. When she reaches the top she shakes the happy endings out in time for everybody’s bedtime. But who is she? Where did she come from? How did she get this job? Where are her family? How does she feel about herself and what dreams does she have for the future?














Look carefully at the pictures above. Use the character description tips (shown in the picture below) to describe what Jub looks like and also how she feels about being in this situation. Also imagine how she might feel about the weather she works in, the place where she lives, her job and the reason she does it and ask yourself if you imagine her having any friendships/relationships with other people or living things?



Can you include exciting adjectives, expanded noun phrases, similes, alliteration and extend your sentences by writing about who, where, when, why and how Jub is doing things.

For example: Jub would rush headlong, like a cat chasing a mouse, through the deep, dark forest to reach the magical tree before sunset.

Home Activity:


Comparing and converting money between pounds and pence


One pound (£1) equals one hundred pennies (100p)


Choose 5 coins or notes from a range of different coins and notes. Record how much you have in pennies and then in pounds and pence. You will need to use a decimal point when showing the total in pounds and pence because the decimal point separates ‘whole’ pounds from ‘pieces’ of pounds.

For example:


These five coins total four pounds and five pence.

This can be written as £4.05 or 405p because there

are 400 pennies in 4 pounds.



Once you have practiced counting the coins and

recording them in both pounds and pence have a

go at making two amounts. You can now do two activities

to practice your addition and subtraction strategies.


First, add the two amounts together using column method, number line method or partitioning.

Secondly, take the smaller amount away from the larger amount or away from £5/£10 and work out the difference using the same strategies.
