This page will have all of your homework tasks. Homework is given on a Monday and should be returned on a Friday; it should be completed in your homework book.

Homework should be of the same standard as in school - use a ruler and a blue or black pen. If you need any of these, please ask your teacher. 

Should you need any support, please speak to your teacher BEFORE THURSDAY. 

If homework is not completed, you will be at a disadvantage because we use it to support our learning in school.

24th January, 2022

Mrs Pritchard/ Mrs Reid's Class 

Read Chapter 5. 

Please think about the relationship between Emily and Pegasus in this chapter. What type of relationship have they got - do they trust each other? Are they friends? Is one of them wary of the other? 

Draw the scene of them on the roof - the way they interact/ their positions etc. should reflect their relationship. Choose five key quotes that indicate what their relationship is like - explain what each of the quotes tells us. Write the quote/ explanation around your picture. 

Mr Reid's Class

Read Chapters  10 & 11.

Who was the hero in these chapters? 

Draw a picture of the character you have chosen - the picture should reflect what they look like at this point in the story (for example, are they standing strong and proud?). Around the picture, you need to provide five points to support why they are the hero - each point requires a quote from the text to support it. 

As usual, please complete the assigned task on Spellingframe. Use your logins to access the test.
