This week, Oak Academy's author of the week is Sally Gardner. Find out more about her book, Mr Tiger, Betsy and the Blue Moon!
During the afternoons, perhaps after lunch or at the end of the day, spend some time reading or listening to a book. It is really important during these times that we keep reading and learning! This will be the same every week and I will repost the links to remind you. Keep a record in your diary like you would normally for Fab4 or on a piece of paper if you don't have your diary!

Look through the document attached below- all about how we can help insects. Identify ways in which we can help insects.
Use this information, and your own ideas, to create a list of things you could at home or at school to help our insects. Have a walk around your garden and think as if you were an insect- where can they eat? Where can they hide? How easy is it for them to fly or move around?
Draw a map of your home/garden. On this map, show where there are dangers for insects or ways in which you would like to help the insects in your area.

Wednesday 10th February
Create your own cartoon minibeast!
Cartoons often exaggerate the most prominent features of something, like a stinging tail or great big eyes. Make preliminary drawings in a sketchbook to plan which features could be exaggerated, then use ICT to create the design where possible, using a paint program (on paper if not!), add colour and animate.
Spend time creating multiple cartoon minibeasts. Once you have finished, use your own drawings or extra images of cartoon minibeasts from online, to create a collage of cartoon minibeasts!
