Write a book review
We are going to write a book review. The main purpose of a book review is to help others decide whether they should read the book themselves.
Choose a fiction book you have read and enjoyed recently. When you write your review it can help if you imagine you are talking to someone who's asking you whether they should read the book.
Think about how you will structure your book review.
Here are some things to include:
Who was your favourite character and why?
Did the story keep you guessing, make you laugh, make you cry?
What was your favourite part of the book?
Were certain types of scene written particularly well?
Did the story grip you and make you want to keep turning the pages?
Draw and colour your favourite character from the book you have reviewed.
Watch the video (from last week) that tells the story of Arachne and Athena.
Can you write the story in your own words?
Arachne was a talented weaver. Her tapestries were so lovely that people paid a fortune to buy them.
In class we have made our own cardboard looms and have tried some weaving. If you have some stiff card and wool at home, have a go at designing your own beautiful piece of woven wool.

Why do we have seasons?
Watch the video and then complete the worksheet. You could draw the diagram and write on paper if you are unable to print out the sheet.
