Watch this clip called ‘Ruckus’, a short animation film about two bandit brothers. Then, you can choose between these two writing ideas. You can either write a setting description of the desert or write a dialogue between the two brothers.

Setting description of the desert:

Activity one: click on this link and write down some of the words that would be good to use in a desert setting description.

Activity two: Use these images to write a setting description of the desert. Think about the five senses:

  • What would you see?
  • What would you hear?
  • What would you smell?
  • What would you touch?

Dialogue between the two brothers:

Activity one: The clip has no speech. Imagine that the brothers were talking to each other throughout the ruckus – what do you think they would say? Write the conversation between them as they chase each other for the diamond.

Activity two: Next, remembering the rules for writing dialogue, use the speech bubbles you completed on the previous page to write a dialogue between the brothers. Click here to see a WAGOLL.


In French this half-term we will learn about the weather. You may have noticed that the weather changes a lot during Spring! After this lesson, you will be able to describe the weather in French and could even teach your family.

First, go through the ‘weather phrases’ Power Point. Remember to click on the audio buttons and repeat after it. If you want to test your memory, do this two or three times, or until you remember how to say it! 

Next, complete these ‘match it’ tasks. You can choose the bronze challenge, or the silver challenge. Don’t look at the answers until you are done to test your knowledge.

Gold challenge: write all the different types of weather you have learnt in French and draw a matching image next to it.

Remember that Mrs Livesey sets extra French lesson on her page. Head there to become a super French learner!

Ancient Egyptians used hieroglyphics as a formal writing system. It included pictures of living creatures, objects used in daily life or symbols. The Egyptians believed there was great power in a name. If someone’s name was remembered then he or she would survive in the afterlife. That’s why pharaohs’ names were written in hieroglyphics in their tombs! You can read more about them here

We would like you to design a banner with your name written in hieroglyphics. Here is the alphabet you will need to use. You could use paint, felt tips, colouring pencils - whatever is in your home!
