Mini Homework Project

Art Composition

On a sheet of A4 paper children will draw part of a chosen rainforest creature and use mark making techniques we have taught them in school to add detail. Close observation and attention to the finer details will be the key to success.

Note to parents  

Before the children start the art task, lead them to watch a clip on youtube called “Austins Butterfly.” They have seen this in school but it’s an excellent teaching tool and will do no harm to watch it again. This will help you in supporting your children.

Environmental Science

First google “Layers of the rainforest” to find out about them prior to our lesson in school. Draw their own representation of them and label each layer. They can use materials to collage their picture or colouring pencils, water colours or just mark making. No felt pens please.

This project should be completed and handed in by Wednesday 5th May.

Thank you

Year 4 Homework Project


Choose an aspect about Tudor life and create a project around it. Eg Tudor clothing; Tudor houses; Tudor ships; Tudor medicine or even Tudor Kings and Queens. Pages should be headed with a key question eg What was the childhood of Henry VIII like? Who were his wives?


Create a contents page at the front of the book and a bibliography at the back which includes a list of any books used or websites searched.  You may include careful and detailed drawings, a few scanned images and a combination of handwritten and typed text. Avoid copying and pasting large chunks of text, better to read it and write in your own words.


Should you want to make any models to support your project you are very welcome to do this although it is not necessary. You have four weeks to complete. Use the time well, don’t wait until the last minute to begin work on this project. Mrs Lody and I are very excited about this homework. All projects must be handed in by Monday 23rd November.
