English Week 5


We are in the final week of our Potions topic, I hope you have enjoyed it. In this week's work, you will be bringing together learning from during the term to complete your task. There is a PowerPoint task for you to follow; this is your main English learning for the week. I look forward to seeing your finished tasks!


If you have time:

I have also provided you with a Love to Read resource for Alice in Wonderland. This booklet has a variety of read and respond tasks linked to the story. The first part of the pack gives information about the book and author, which you may or may not choose to read through. After that, a section called 'things to discuss' offers activities and questions for you to answer on different chapters of the book. Obviously you can only answer questions on the chapters you have read, don't worry about the others. 


Please email news@ if you need any help.

Just for fun - I wonder who wrote a version of Alice in Wonderland when they were in Year 2!? Imagine the purple pen needed to improve this!
