Writing - Watch Harry Potter seeing Diagon Alley for the first time:

(Certificate PG)

  • Write down any similarities to the Nowhere Emporium description yesterday.
  • Write five sentences to describe what Harry can see. Think about how to open your sentences in different ways, e.g. ‘ing opener’ such as: ‘Peering intently, Harry saw wonders he had never seen before’.
  • Now read the extract attached below which describes this scene. Which do you think was the most effective, text or film, to describe Diagon Alley? Write down your response giving evidence from both what you have read and watched.
  • Write your own version of this scene – can you improve on the original?


Science - LO: To label the parts of the circulatory system.

Using the information on the PowerPoint below, draw and label the heart diagram using the key words in your Green book. Watch  for more information. There is a worksheet attached below to help you also.


DT CHALLENGE: Food technology – to last all week.

I pinched this idea from Mr Scott who oversees DT in school! Your task this week is to do a little Design Technology Project (DT Project). As you are no doubt be spending a lot of time in the house at the moment, it seems right that we do our bit to help our parents with the cooking! You will have until Friday to complete this so don’t worry.

I challenge you all (if you can) to do the following:


    1. Plan – In your Green Book, plan a meal that the whole family can all eat together (excluding babies on formula of course!). You need to see what ingredients you have in the house – you are not allowed to buy new things from a shop. In your Green book, you can plan what it looks like (draw a diagram), plan your ingredients list, write a method (a step-by-step instruction sheet on how to make it), write out a list of equipment you are going to need.
    2. Make – you need to make the meal (please send me plenty of photos, this will make me very happy to see you all cooking!)
    3. Evaluate – write a paragraph or two afterwards in your Green Book reflecting on how it went. Questions you could answer are ones like: Did you get it perfect? Did you use the correct amounts or ingredients? What went well? What didn’t go as planned? Did you have to change something from your plan? If so why? If you were to do this again, what would you do differently and why?


Please follow all sensible health and safety advice. Children should never be left alone with ovens, hot pans, knives etc or anything that could bring any harm to them. If in doubt – don’t do it! I know you all know this – I just need to remind you of it – and of course WASH YOUR HANDS!
