English Year 3 & 4




Read chapters 5 and 6 of The Firework Maker’s Daughter. If you want to recap or need to catch up then check previous weeks for the previous chapters.

Then answer these questions:

  1. Draw a thought bubble and in it describe how Lila feels as chapter 5 ends
  2. How does Lila’s viewpoint change over chapter 5?
  3. Do you think what happened to Lalchand was fair? Why?
  4. What does Lila’s dialogue tell us about her personality?
  5. Summarize chapter 6 in just five points.
  6. What do you think Lila is planning at the end of chapter 6?




What is a Newspaper?

Why do we have them?

What makes a good newspaper article?

Have a look at the articles attached below and make a list of what features they have that show they are from a newspaper (for example – headline) and write some points on what you think is good about the article and whether you think anything should have been done differently to make it better.

When you have done that, have a look at the features of a newspaper report. Did you get some or all of the points listed there?




 Next week you will be writing your own newspaper report. You may choose to make one up (fiction) or you may use an actual event (non fiction). Today is for research. Remember to check with an adult before using the internet.

  1. Decide whether you want to write about an earthquake or a volcano erupting.
  2. Do some research into them – what can you find out about what happens when an event like that happens? Who and what does it affect?
  3. Make some notes from your research for you to use in your newspaper report next week. Note taking is a very useful skill to develop. Remember you do not need to write in full sentences. You may wish to write in bullet points.

Keep your notes safe as you will need them on Friday and also next week.




When writing, it is important to use interesting language. Explain to an adult why you thing this is.

Newspaper articles want to attract people’s attention so they need powerful vocabulary.

Write some powerful sentences about an earthquake happening or a volcano erupting. There are some word mats to help you attached below and a worksheet. You may use the worksheets or write your own spectacular sentences.




Another important aspect of writing is that it flows well. To help this we use cohesion – linking words.

What ways can you think of to link paragraphs?

Look at the powerpoint below about cohesion.

When you have done that, use your notes from Wednesday and write some sentences or paragraphs including cohesion. You may use the information in the powerpoint to help you and there are also documents underneath it.



See Purple Mash for the spellings for your year group, choose the next week to the last one you have done.

There are two quizzes set on Purple Mash, one for each year group. You may choose just to do the one for your year group, or you could do both.

Look cover write check sheets are also on Purple Mash


Firework Maker's daughter chapter 5

chapter 6 (photos again as the scanner wasn't connecting for me but the pages are nice and flat)

Thursday English - powerful language



Science 1

What is soil? What is soil used for? 

• Read the facts about soil on the slides. From what you have read, why is soil important?
Think about it and then share your ideas with someone in your house, then go through the information on the slides about what soil is, how it is formed and why it is important.
• Just like rocks, there are different types of soil. Look at the pictures of different soils
on the slides. What differences can you see between these different types of soil?
•How you could order soil samples (e.g. by colour)?


Next, read the knowledge organiser on soil and look at the glossary. Did you know the words in the glossary?


From your garden and/or on a walk, collect soil samples from 3 different places. Put your soils in different containers so they don't mix. 

When you get home - investigate your soil samples. What do they look like? What do they feel like? What is the size of the particles. Choose one of the worksheets to record your results. Year four - please use sheet 5C or alternatively create your own recording sheet. 

Describe in as much detail as possible what the soil samples are like. 

If your soil samples are very similar, why do you think that is? Why do you think soil is different in different places - for example in your garden and from near a volcano?



Science 2

• Can you remember how rocks are formed? Share your ideas with someone in your house, then go through the
slides about the rock cycle and the different types of rock (i.e. igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic).
• Look at the picture of a fossil on the slides. What is a fossil? Go through the information on the slides
about how fossils are formed.
• Look at the pictures of different fossils on the slides. What do you think we can find out from
these fossils? Palaeontologists use fossils to help them find out about living things from millions of years ago.

Have you found a fossil before? We are very lucky in Dorset as we live in the Jurassic Coast and we can find fossils on the beaches - Charmouth is amazing for finding fossils. 

Choose one of the worksheets and complete it. 


• You can make their own versions of fossils. Look at the Help Sheet and go through each of the steps so you know what to do. You can make your fossils from shells, toys, leaves, or anything else that creates an imprint.
• Follow the steps on the Help Sheet to create your fossils.
• While the fossils are setting, write a description of what a fossil is and how fossils are
formed, using a labelled diagram. 

** The help sheet says to use plaster of Paris which you may not have. Instead, you could make some clay at home - ask your adults to help you. You can find how to make clay on the internet. Here is one website that tells you how: (remember to always ask an adult to use the internet).





Soil knowledge organiser and glossary



RE - will return next week! Please complete the transition booklet.




Thank you to Elizabeth for this link. It's great!

How about having a go at making some music that sounds like a volcano erupting or an earthquake happening. No scaring any animals or people in your house though laugh

Also remember you have Charanga for music. Music is always a great thing to be doing. 







Some of you included some great art in your posters last week and some of you have actually made erupting volcanoes.


How about this week doing some garden art linked to science? Collect some soil and some rocks (and anything else from your gardens) and make a nature picture of a volcano or an earthquake. The challenge is you are only allowed to use things from nature that you find outside. Have fun smiley
