English

Before school closed, we were planning a persuasive leaflet to persuade the reader to conserve water. We discussed why water is essential, why we should conserve our fresh water and ways that we can conserve it, such as turning the taps off when brushing your teeth.

Over the holidays, we would like you to write this persuasive leaflet, including those of you who began it at school. You can conduct your own research to help you write this and write it into the format of an actual leaflet. Remember to include model verbs, such as ‘should’, ‘can’, ‘will’. Try to make your leaflet both informative and colourful.

Reading

We would like you to choose a chapter book to read. Try to read for at least 20 minutes a day. After you have read the first chapter, create some of your own retrieval questions (questions where the answer is in the text). You can ask a grown up or sibling to have a go at your questions.

PE

Art

In our Art sessions, we have looked at and used different sketching techniques: hatching, cross-hatching, stippling, scumbling, blending, shading and bold and light outlines.

We would like you to use these techniques to sketch an object in your house or garden, e.g. a bowl of fruit, a tree.

History

Our next topic is ‘Raging Romans’. This is where we learn all about the Roman Empire. We would like you to begin by conducting your own research. Use the link below to read up on the ancient Romans and watch interesting clips.
