This weeks English  task is to write a poem about the rainforest using your knowledge of the five senses and noun phrases.

A noun phrase is writing tool used to add description. It consists of an adjective (describing word) followed by a noun (person, place or thing).

The example below also uses alliteration. This is where the two words begin with the same letter.

Make it Monday


Today in the US it is ‘Smile Power Day’. Whilst it isn’t traditionally celebrated in the UK, we feel that everybody needs to remember at the moment to keep smiling, so this is the theme of the day!


For your task today, can you make a variety of different smiley emojis using any resources you like? Some ideas may include balloons, collage, paint, sewing – anything you like!


Topic Tuesday


What plants need to grow.

This week, we would like you to research and record what plants need to grow! Why do they need each of these things?



What do you think will happen if one of these things are taken away?

Try this experiment at home (cress seeds are a great option to use – place them in cups with cotton wool or soil).



Extension – If you wanted to go further you could see what would happen to a plant with NO soil and NO water (in a dark cupboard).


  • What happened?
  • Why did this happen?
  • Which plant grew the most? Why?
  • Which plant grew the least? Why?


Wonderful World Wednesday



‘Trade’ is very important for the world. If you do not know what trade means, finding the definition would be a great place to start for this week’s task. (see useful link below)


Can you put these items in the correct location where they come from?

To complete this activity, you need to make two decisions…

  • Firstly, decide what you will use for your world – this could be a globe, an atlas, a wall map (flat or on the wall) or for the more ambitious a world map made out of masking tape on the floor or on the table.
  • Secondly, choose how to represent the fair trade products – you could draw them, use real fruit, mould them out of plasticine or even make them out of marzipan then eat them afterwards!



1. What do you notice about where the countries are?

2. Are there some countries which seem to produce more than others?

3. Why do you think the UK have to get some of these products from other countries?

4. What products do you think the UK could produce to sell to other countries?
