This week's homework is a Topic homework instead of an English one. If you wish to do a bit of extra English work you could:
- Find 10 interesting words in your book. Write down what each one means. Now think of your own sentences that use the words.
- Storyboard events from your book as a comic strip. Which picture would represent the key event or turning point in the story?
- Imagine you are one of the characters from your book. Write a diary entry about an event from the book from that character’s point of view.
- Find 10 descriptive words in your. Use a thesaurus to find antonyms and synonyms for the words. Now try to use the new words in your own sentences. Evaluate which is more effective – the author’s original choice or the new words you have found.
These activities are not compulsory.
You are not expected to complete any of them, but if you do then your teacher would love to see what you have come up with!
This week's homework is all about our current art topic - famous illustrators.
We have spent a whole half term looking at different illustrators and the styles and techniques they use.
Your homework is to create a fact file about a famous illustrator. You can choose one of the ones we have already studied or choose one of your own!
NB: This work is due on Monday 25th February.
You have two full weeks to complete the homework so get creative!
