##### English: L.O: To use text-based evidence to create a character description.

Activity 1: Listen again to Chapter 20 of Pig Heart Boy. However, whilst you are listening for a second time, write down all adjectives that you think describe Cam's Nan and her personality in this chapter. Make sure you are comfortable whilst you listen- it is a long and eventful chapter!

Activity 2: In this chapter we met Cam's Nan and she plays a very important role in the remainder of the story. Your task is to create a character description for this new character:

1. Use a whole page of your home learning book/ piece of paper to draw a picture of what you believe Nan looks like (don't draw her too big as you will need the space around her!)
2. Once you have drawn her, I would like you to label her using the adjectives you wrote down for Activity 1 that you feel best describe her personality. You must label her with a minimum of 5 adjectives.
3. Under each adjective, you must use evidence from the chapter to back up your chosen adjective and why you think she could be described in this way.

See below for example of one adjective (protective) with evidence from the text to support.

Share your character descriptions on J2E!

##### Geography L.O: To write a non-chronological report on a famous mountain.

Before Easter, you wrote a chronological report (which is very much like a detailed fact-file) on an endangered animal of your choice. We also created one at school for Winston Churchill. For this activity, I would like you to present your report in a very similar way (see attached example of a non-chronological report).

Activity 1: Open up the file below and select one famous mountain from the list of 22. The name of this mountain should be the title of your report.

Famous Mountains Around the World

Activity 2: Each box/ paragraph of your report will provide different information about your famous mountain of choice. Below, the phrases in BOLD should be the headings for each section of your report and the questions below them should help you know what to research and  support you in forming your sentences/ paragraphs under each heading. Leave space for a picture if you can which can be hand drawn or printed but must be captioned!

 Location Which country(s) / continent is this mountain located? How much land does this mountain cover? Mountain Features -How high is the peak of this mountain? -Is it snow-capped or not? -What type of mountain is it? (e.g. fold, fault-block, dome etc…) Weather/ Climate -What is the average temperature atop this mountain? -What is the coldest temperature it reaches? -What is the warmest temperature it reaches? -What months of the year is it coldest and warmest? Wildlife -What species of plant might you see living on this mountain/ mountain range? -What species of animal might you see living on this mountain/ mountain range? -How are these plants and animals adapted to the conditions/ environment of this mountain? Famous Expedition For this part of your fact file/ report I would like you to summarise a minimum of one famous journey/ expedition made by an explorer/climber to the peak of this mountain When did they climb it? -Why did they climb it? -Were they alone or accompanied? -Were they successful? -What problems did they face? -How long did it take them?

Please post these on J2E Bloggy so we can all see what great reports you have written!

##### P.E.

At a time where we all find ourselves indoors for the most of the day, we should bare in mind how important daily exercise is for our health and wellbeing, particularly our mental health. If you are able to, take your device somewhere with plenty of space (even the garden on a nice sunny day) or clear some space in front of your computer and follow along with Joe Wicks for a 30 minute workout. I will definitely be doing the same!
