Please do not begin this work until Friday 1st May 2020
Please Note: We have added a suggested timetable onto our distance learning page for you follow if it helps you to organise your day. You do not have to follow these times – talk to an adult at home to decide what will work best for you. If you are following your own timetable, we have added a time in brackets which is a guideline to show how long each activity might take.
First, remember to send a message (by 10am) on I Am Learning to your teacher to count as your register mark. Remember to include your scores from yesterday's English quiz and the Maths quiz.

Art and DT (1 hour)
We will be starting an Art project focusing on mini-beasts and deadly critters from around the world and in the UK. We will be practising our drawing and perspective. To start our new art project, we want you to let your creativity run wild! Design your own beast and draw a picture of them as well as labelling their characteristics. Don’t forget to name your beast too. It should not be any animal that already exists but you could borrow features from known animals. Think about how they would hunt and kill their prey if they are carnivores or how they might hide from other predators. Below is an example for you to look at; it is a brilliant example of an imaginative creation but be careful as not all of their spellings are correct. Make sure it is colourful too!
HINT: Have a look at these websites about Aposematism –they will give you some great ideas.
History (1 hour) Victorian Inventions
The Victorian Era (1837 – 1901) was a very productive time for new inventions. Many household devices that we take for granted today were invented during this period. On the History PDF sheet, sort the inventions according to whether you think they were invented before the Victorian Era, during the Victorian Era or after the Victorian Era. Discover the year each object was invented. You could print out the PDF sheet if you would like to. Websites to help you research the inventions are at the bottom of the PDF sheet.
Well done for all of your hard work. Have a lovely weekend.
