English – Wednesday 1st July 2020

Hello again, well done for making it half way through the week! For today’s English lesson we are going to read/watch the next chapter of the story called ‘Lavender', on the audiobook you will need to start at 2 hour, 2 minutes and 23 seconds and finish at 2 hour 9 minutes and 34 seconds. I have also attached a copy of the chapter below in a pdf.

In this chapter, Lavender catches a newt from the bottom of her garden. She then takes it into school ready for Miss Trunchbull. Today’s activity is to research information about newts; you will need to use the internet to conduct your research. I would like you to find out about the following:

  • Habitat,
  • Diet,
  • Predators,
  • Image.

I have attached a research outline below to help you. In tomorrow’s lesson you will be using all of your new found facts to design and create an information poster or fact file so the more information you find today the more you will have to use tomorrow.
