Read a Book
Oxford Owl has a huge selection of free eBooks to read. Follow the website's instructions to create a log in. Ask an adult for help. It's completely free. Choose an eBook to read and email me a book review. What was it about? Who was your favourite character and why? Did you enjoy it? How many stars would you give it? Would you recommend it to a friend?
I would love to put all your Oxford Owl eBook recommendations on our class page.

Last week, you created a recycling diary showing how and why we recycle. Now let's explore how we can make other small changes to our daily lives to help care for the Earth.
- Create a poster, PowerPoint or video persuading people that we can walk or cycle for shorter journeys instead of using a car. You could use bright colours, diagrams and/or pictures, conjunctions and emotive language to make it as eye-catching and persuasive as possible.
- Try some of CAFOD's weekly activities. This week is about refugees. Click the link below.
Write a character description for a historical character.
Who is your favourite historical character? Maybe it's a Roman or a Celt? Is it a famous scientist? They can be real or imaginary.
Think about their personality and appearance.
- What did they look like?
- How did they act and feel?
- What did they enjoy doing?
There are plenty of useful websites you can look at to help you on our class page.

Make up your own dance moves for different animals you have read about in story books.
