W/C - 16th March 2020

Home Learning - w/c: 16/03/20



We will give you work to do on MyMaths. Make sure you have all your login details! By the way, Times Tables Rockstars is BACK! 



Please work through the activities on your Course Pathway



Don't forget to log into your Active Learn Bug Club account and catch up on your reading.



This week's task is to think about your deadly plant. You are going to draw the plant and list all its features. think about:

  • appearance
  • size
  • habitat
  • nutrition (what it eats)
  • what it likes
  • what it doesn't like
  • where it was discovered
  • a name!


When you have drawn the plant and listed all its features (like in a spidergram) you are then going to plan your non-chronological report about it. 

Remember to include:

  • An introduction
  • subheadings
  • paragraphs
  • technical vocabulary (think about the parts of a flower!)
  • some sort of conclusion.


Once you have planned your report, then write out your first draft. You should edit it afterwards.


Think about all the grammar work that has been covered this year:

  • fronted adverbials
  • expanded noun phrases
  • relative clauses
  • modal verbs


We will include some links below for documents to remind you of what a non-chronological report is.




Find attached below this week's work, 'The Knots of Disobedience'

Guided Reading


Find the link below to this week's guided reading task. If you are unable to print it out then just write the answers on a piece of lined paper.


Topic - Peasants, Princes and Pestilence


Find the attached work below. There are 8 challenge cards to do with the Great Plague. Work through the instructions on each challenge.


Science/Design Technology


We would like you to attempt to build a mini wormery. Find attached all the instructions and other information on how to make it. Once it is made, then make notes on any observations made from watching your wormery.




Make observational drawings of any plant or flower that you can find. Look at the fine detail of the plant and try to recreate it within your drawing. If you have watercolours, use those to add colour. Try to match the colours. Remember to add colour little by little. Research the observational drawings created by various illustrators during Charles Darwin's trips overseas.
