English Home Learning
Below is an outline for your week if you have any questions or you are finding it tricky, let your teacher know so they can help you. You can do this on Teams using the logins you have been sent.
You should be able to do this independently, your parents do not need to work with you to complete it.
You do not need to print any work off, you can answer the questions on paper. Please write the date and title on the paper as you would do if you were in school.
Enjoy, don't forget to send it to us!

Tuesday 12th January: Research Page
Grammar starter – Complete the synonyms and antonyms mini test, think carefully about what a synonym is and an antonyms, perhaps tell your parents first before you have a go at the starter.
Main activity – Can you find out about life in a rainforest?
Your task is to research life in a rainforest, try to find out, are there any tribes? What do people do for daily activities? What animals live there?
Below are some links for you that may help you, remember when you are creating a research page, you need the key parts, do not overload it as otherwise you will confuse yourself when you come to the next part.
I have also attached a couple of documents, one of them is an e-book and the other two are some information sheets.
You need to create a research page, how you choose to lay this out is up to you but we look forward to seeing how you present your research!
Wednesday 13th January: Diary Entry
Grammar starter – Commas, work through the two sheets that have questions about commas, think carefully when we use commas. You may want to read some of the questions out loud because that sometimes makes it easier to know where to put the commas!
Main activity – You will need to use your research page from yesterday for todays activity. Look at the diary WAGOLL below, think about diary entries that we have written before and the important things that you need in a diary, particularly that it needs to be written in past tense and first person!
We would like you to write a short diary entry in the role of a child or an adult that lives in the rainforest, think about your life in the rainforest, what happens daily? What do you get to see? Remember it is important that you use the links, diary WAGOLL and the e-book as it will make your life a lot easier!
Don’t forget to send us your diary entry, we look forward to seeing it!
