Reading

The Parent Agency by David Baddiel

Barry Bennett hates being called ‘Barry’ and has made a list of ten other things he hates. Barry feels that his friends have better names, better clothes, better birthdays and definitely better parents. Barry wishes he had better parents and is transported to a world where children choose their own.

Listen/watch the author reading the extract then have a go at the activities.

Fiction Express

Would you like to spend your holiday on a crocodile farm with your worst enemy? Nonikiwe Mattita certainly wouldn’t. But when Mum goes away for work, Noni is sent far away to Cape Town. She will spend a week living with the crocodiles, and with Johan, whom she despises. And to make matters worse, there is tension at the farm. Noni soon finds herself involved in a deadly mystery. Will she – and Johan – survive to tell the tale?

Power projects

Choose another of the 1066 Power Projects to complete. Remember to send us examples so we can add it on to here as an example of excellent work!

Science

Features of Sound

Sounds travel as invisible sound waves down our ear to our ear drum.

Once the sound waves hit our ear drum, the vibrations send a message to our brain which converts it into sound. Learn about different features of sound including pitch and volume.

Geography

Learn about sustainability, recycling and plastic pollution. Maybe you could even take part in the plastics challenge!

Art

Henri Matisse and Collage

In this lesson you will learn about French artist Henri Matisse and create a collage inspired by his work.

PSHE

In today’s lesson, we visit a key topic of Black Lives Matter given the recent case of George Floyd. The lesson is around creating hope for the future – a future that is not based on the colour of someone’s skin but the content of their character. 

Spanish

Give an opinion about your town or city in Spanish.

This lesson will recap previous learning and help you to express opinions.
