Writing – All your writing tasks will be based around ‘The Butterfly Lion’ extract you read in your comprehension task.

1) Continue writing your version of the next chapter of the story. Remember it must be written in first person and you have just seen roaring lion in the rain after sneaking away from the boarding school. It is in front of the gate you need to go through to leave the school, if you go back to school now you will be caned. What will happen next, what will you decide to do, where will decide to go and how will you get past this lion? This continuation should be at least 1 A4 page long.

2) It is clear from the text that the narrator is unhappy at his boarding school. Using the text, write a diary entry expressing his unhappiness. Remember to include feelings and emotions about what and who makes him unhappy and why. This should be written in first person, using informal language.

3) The narrator received a letter from his mum who he is no doubt missing, making him feel ‘homesick’. Think about and imagine what his mum may have written to him (e.g. missing him, behave, he will be home in the next school holidays, she will write again etc) You must write a letter replying to his mum. This needs to be laid out as an informal letter with an address, date, Dear, an introductory paragraph and then a further 2 or 3 paragraphs before concluding the letter and signing off. It can be informal and must be in first person, giving thoughts and opinions.

Science & Computing

Identify potential electrical hazards in your home (this does not mean they are actually a hazard in your home) and how we can make them safe for everyone in a household, no matter what their age. Record this is a table as I have done below:


Potential Electrical Hazard at Home:

How could we make it safer:

Using an extension lead or adaptor plug to ‘fit’ more plugs into one socket can overload it causing a fire.

Only use the plug socket for one plug as intended. If you need to use an extension lead for length, do not ‘add’ extra plugs.


Using this link:

First go near the bottom of the page and click on ‘What is electricity?’ to get and understanding of electricity.

Then go on to play activity identifying electrical dangers in the home – visit the rooms and click on dangers so they are explained to you. You will be told how many dangers to find in each room!

If you want to explore a little more, click ‘Fun and learning’ at the bottom of the page. This will lead you to other games and information. Keep safe in the house!


Art & ComputingAndy Warhol & Pop Art

We have been learning about Andy Warhol and his love for portraits in art. You have created self-portraits which have had colour added in his ‘pop art’ style. Now you are going to create self-portraits in the form of a ‘selfie’ where the images will be altered digitally.

 Click here for Art Andy Warhol Self Portraits

Using a phone/tablet camera, pose for the camera, using four different facial expressions like Warhol did. When you have four images, ask an adult to help you to ‘upload’ them onto a computer so they can be edited. Depending on the software available you have (e.g. Photo Shop, Paint, Publisher), import or copy and paste each image into your document and explore with colours and tints, e.g. colour specific facial features such as hair, lips, ears, eyebrows, a coloured background, etc.

Once you have edited their four images, they should arrange them in a grid formation (see example on sheet) onto a single sheet of paper to print off.
