Hello Class 3,


Here are this week's homework tasks, when you 've completed them, please send them in to us using the class email address.


For your first task, please log onto Mathletics using your log on code in your reading record and complete the assigned activities.

Next, spend a few extra minutes reading. This can be your school reading book, the reading for pleasure book, a book from home or a book on Oxford Reading Buddy. 


Choose your favourite passage from a book of your choice, let us know what it is and why you like it.


e.g. Dougal's Deep Sea Diary by Simon Bertram

7.30am I woke with excitement.

I can't wait until tomorrow.


8.30am Train to work (no one talked to me as usual).

I wish tomorrow was here right NOW.


12.30pm Lunch - Too excited to eat (almost!).


3.30pm Two hours to go.

4.30 One hour to go, come on clock!


5.29 Almost...




6.30 Home on train (no one talked to me as usual).


9.00 I packed by bags and went to bed early.

Tomorrow I, little old Dougal, will become...


Dougal the deep-sea diver!


I like this extract because you can feel the excitement of the character.

We have looked at some of the work of Picasso in our Art lesson this week and have had a go at drawing our own faces. 


For your final task this week, explore self portraits further.


You might decide to create your own self-portrait. This could be by sketching, painting, using photography or even as a collage.




You could research artists and their self portraits.


We are looking forward to seeing what you produce.


Have a lovely weekend.

What Famous Painters Looked Like in Their Self-Portraits and in Real Life

Before photography was invented, painters used their talent and skills to immortalize themselves in self-portraits and let people know what they looked like. Many famous painters of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries were photographed, and thanks to their rare pictures, we can compare their real-life looks with their self-portraits.
