Dear Parents and Carers, here is an overview of tasks we’d like children to complete at home over the coming week. We are committed to making sure that your child is still learning as much as possible and endeavour to do our best to keep this happening.
Warmest regards, The Cathedral School Team

1 – You are going to write a letter from George to a medicine manufacturer telling them about his invention and asking if they would be interested in making it. Use the template to write your letter.
2 – Choose an author (still living) that you particularly like. Make a list of 10 questions for that author. Make sure you use question words - who, what, why, when, how, where
3 – Plan a letter to your favourite author using the questions you thought of yesterday to help. Remember not to just list the questions – can you add extra information to make your letter interesting?
Starting sentence introducing yourself:
What I like about the books:
Questions I would like to ask:
Final sentence saying thank you
4 – Write your letter to your favourite author. Check and edit, then write out in best. Can you send it to the author or their publisher? You never know – you might get a reply! You may want to look at the template on Tapestry to help.
You must make sure you read daily. This is a great opportunity to read some good books –check out our 100 suggested books on the website or try listening to an audio book.

Log onto Times Table Rockstars and practise your times tables. Your log in details are stuck in your homework diaries.
Science: Forces and Magnets
What is a force?
Find a selection of items from around your home e.g. toy vehicles, balls of different sizes and materials (e.g. ping pong, foam, tennis, beach, football), pull along toys, rubber bands, bulldog clips, beanbags, pencil case with zip, spectacle case,
rulers, rubbers, scissors, calculators, screw top pots or bottles, coins, any other safe gadgets or tools.
Investigate how you can change them or use them. What forces are you using to interact with them – examples could be push or pull, squidge, kick, roll, stop, tap, twist. What other forces can you come up with?
https://wordart.com/create Go to this website and enter the different forces you have come up with in the word boxes to the left. Then click on visualise to make a word cloud. Save or take a picture of the screen or print if you can.
What do you think the phrase ‘water conservation’ means? Make a mind map of all the ways you can think of to conserve water.
Cut up resource 33 into the separate statements. Put them in order of which measures you think conserve the most water and which conserve the least. The answers are in resource 34. Were you right? Did any of the answers surprise you? Why?
Read The Boy Who Cried Wolf (on Tapestry). This is a fable – a story with a meaning. What meaning do you think this story has?
Stories Jesus told called ‘parables’ did the same — they are stories with meanings that might be hard to work out. Share Luke 10:25–237 (on Tapestry or you can try and find it in the Bible). What do you think the ‘hidden meaning’ of this story might be?
Pose the question ‘And who is your neighbour?’ You can show your responses by writing ‘ME’ in the middle of a set of concentric circles and the name of a ‘neighbour’ in each of the others (template on Tapestry)
Find out what is meant by tradition. Does your family have any traditions? Make a list of traditions that your family has. If you can, share your work with someone else (this could even be someone from school). How are your traditions different?
Listen to the audio story of 'Ours Brun' again and complete the sheet 'Les Animaux' as you listen. You need to colour the animal in the colour according to the story and write the noun with the colour adjective underneath in French.
D&T – Shadow Puppets
How do you think the shadow puppets are made? What makes them work?
Using a light source and your hands, what shapes or animals can you make? Take a picture of some of them to put on Tapestry. Which is your favourite? Why?
Listen to and watch this performance of “Peter and the Wolf”
When you have watched it test yourself: without watching or listening to it again can you write down the names of all the characters in the story? Test yourself a bit further: without watching or listening again can you remember which instrument is used to represent each character? Mrs Miller will send you the answers on Tapestry at the end of the week!
Have a go at the balancing activity on Tapestry.
