Oak- Year 3 & 4 2019 - 2020
Video link to Miss O reading Chapter 8 for this week's homework
It is a bit of a sad chapter, so please talk to your adult at home about it if you need to.
Welcome to the Oak Class Home Learning Page!
From Monday 23rd March, please begin the home learning tasks that I have sent home. Children are to complete any work in their new, blue, homework books. I will upload new homework sheets here, every week.
Here are some useful websites, that you may like to use at home

Once you've finished your school book, think about reviewing it. These can be displayed in the library. The main features of a book review include:
1. A couple of sentences describing what the book is about.
2. Discuss what you particularly liked about the book. Focus on your thoughts and feelings about the story and the way it was told. You could try answering a couple of the following questions:
Who was your favourite character, and why?
Did the characters feel real to you?
Did the story keep you guessing?
What was your favourite part of the book, and why?
Were certain types of scene written particularly well - for example sad scenes, tense scenes, mysterious ones...?
Did the book make you laugh or cry?
Did the story grip you and keep you turning the pages?
3. Mention anything you disliked about the book. Talk about why you think it didn't work for you. For example:
Did you wish the ending hadn't been a cliffhanger because you found it frustrating?
Did you find it difficult to care about a main character, and could you work out why?
Was the story too scary for your liking, or did it focus on a theme you didn't find interesting?
4. Round up your review. Summarise some of your thoughts on the book by suggesting the type of reader you'd recommend the book to. For example: younger readers, older readers, fans of relationship drama/mystery stories/comedy. Are there any books or series you would compare it to?
5. You can give the book a rating, for example a mark out of ten, if you like!
I look forward to you sharing this when we are back. Keep up your normal hard work, with your lovely smiley faces! See you all soon :)
