Thank you for your work so far this week. We hope you have enjoyed the superworm story and mini beast hunting!

See below for activities for Wednesday and Thursday:

  • Maths Lesson 3
  • Maths Lesson 4
  • English: Superworm character description
  • Geography- using a key
  • Art- observational drawing


Lesson 3: Sorting 2D and 3D shapes

Children could collect shapes from around the house and sort into their own groups. 2D / 3D. Curved faces/flat faces. Cuboids/cylinders. In school we used venn diagrams to sort.

Lesson 4: Making patterns with 2D and 3D shapes.


Read the character description below. What makes this a good character description. Which features have been highlighted?

Now let’s think about Superworm. How can we describe him? What does he look like? What is his personality like? What do others think about him?

You can use the ideas from the character description above to set out your description of superworm.

  1. Introduction
  2. Describe his appearance
  3. Describe his personality
  4. Conclusion- what do you and others think about him and why.


Can you see the pictures and symbols on the map below? There’s a footprint, a telephone and a letter P. What could they mean?

Did you see any of these:

(Answers: Wind turbine, hospital, woodland, campsite, picnic area)

Here is a map of the school farm and junior outside areas. Can you see the key at the side? It helps you to recognise different places on the map.

Your task: Can you draw a map of your house and garden or local park? Make a key to explain what is on your map!


LO: to use drawing to develop and share ideas; to develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space

Look at the instructions for how to draw a butterfly here. Have a go!

Now choose one of the pictures below (or find your own). Look carefully at the butterfly and draw it carefully.

After you have done your first draft watch the following video. It talks about how feedback helps you to improve. Ask someone to give you some clear and specific guidance on how to improve your picture.

What is Austin’s first drawing like?
What is his last drawing like?
How does he improve?

Now have another try at your own butterfly picture!
