Make something Monday-
This half term our topic is ‘Plants’. For make it Monday we would like you to produce a careful sketch of a plant of your choice – it could be one in your home, your garden, or one you find outside. Try to include details. It is up to you whether you decide to add colour in the form of paint, pencils etc. or use your pencil to add shading to produce a black and white art piece.
See some examples below J
As a start for our science topic of ‘Plants’, we would like you to research and label the different parts of a plant. In Year 3/4 the parts we need to know are;
Extension – can you research the function of each of these parts?
NOTE – the image is provided as a guide. We would love it if you could draw and label a diagram of your own plant – it would be fantastic if you could research some other parts of a plant and add these onto your diagram!
If you can clearly see these different parts on your ‘make it Monday’ sketch then feel free to use this as your image to label!
Wonderful World Wednesday-
This week we would like you to learn about volcanoes! These are fascinating natural features of our world.

Weekly English task-
As summer appears to be emerging, with the beautiful weather we have had lately, your English task is to write a ‘Setting description’ using this beautiful summery picture.
We would like no more than a page of lovely descriptive writing, using your imagination and 5 senses (See, hear, smell, touch, taste).
Here is an example -
‘In front of my eyes lay a scene so beautiful and pure that it gave me a sense of instant relaxation. In the distance, mountain clusters stood with scatters of snow beginning to melt away. Beautiful purple flowers were blooming in the scorching sunshine – untouched and undisturbed by any human contact…’
