We have not set any maths homework for you to complete this week, but would like you to work on the following tasks:

In English we have been using the book Street Child as a stimulus for our English. As part of this topic we would like you to investigate a local workhouse that was functioning during the Victorian period. They were everywhere at this time but these buildings are now being used for different purposes. Find out as much as you can about them. For example: a timetable of what their day was like, what they ate each day, what they wore, were families separated or kept together? Did families ever get to leave or did they spend their whole lives in there? What kind of jobs did they have to do? Etc. You are encouraged to present this in any way you would like… PowerPoint, written on the computer, or using paper and pen. Please include pictures and lots of information, ensuring you present your work beautifully. As you are doing this for two weeks it should be an ‘extra special’ piece of work.
We have been learning to spell words ending in “ence” and “ance”.
Please practise these words for Friday 2nd November
