Sentence / Fragment / Run-on

1.) He’s here.
2.) We don’t have enough time.
3.) The fox slowly.
4.) It over there by the oak tree.
5.) My tail was stuck, I didn’t know what to do.
6.) Peter was my human, but I was sure about his father.

8.) As quick as a flash.
9.) Do we have time to do it?
10.) I jumped, he jumped higher.



As mentioned yesterday, I will be sharing a chapter of the book Pax every day – which did mean I had to very brave and record myself reading.

Here’s today’s chapter:



Based on what you’ve just listened to from chapter 16, write a short diary entry as if you were Peter on that day. Think about what things you’re going to write in your diary entry and how it would have made you (Peter) feel.


Daily Video

As quite a few of you said you enjoyed yesterday’s short animation, I thought I’d try to include them more regularly – along with some questions to get you thinking.

Here’s today’s:


1.) In this clip, there are two scenes. Who do you think the two young Chimpanzees are?

2.) The two Chimpanzees play in two different styles; which of the two Chimpanzee’s playing is more formal?

4.) What do you think the relationship between the two chimpanzees is?

5.) How do you think the lives of the two chimpanzees have been different?

6.) Rank the four character’s (the gorilla caretaker, the chimpanzee caretaker, the chimpanzee pianist and the monkey piano teacher) from 1 – 4 (one being the most and 4 being the least) for each of the following characteristics:
a.) Funny
b.) Talented
c.) Strict
d.) Happy

7.) Interestingly, although this animation is called “Monkey Symphony”, there is only one monkey in it. Gorillas and Chimpanzees are actually apes (like humans). How do you think that we know the piano teacher is a monkey and not an ape?



Our topic this term is going to be “Tudor Shropshire”. Shropshire is a county of England. England has 48 counties.

Your Geography task is a bit of a challenge: see how many counties you can label on the map below as possible – you don’t need to find them all. You can use an atlas and/or any web resources as you wish.

Don’t worry about the coloured counties as these are not part of England. The pink counties are Scottish, the yellow are Welsh and the green are Northern Irish.

Bonus question: does anyone know why the Republic of Ireland has not been included on this map?
