Insect Research Homework
This week we are doing another English homework as this leads into our work on Non chronological report writing, starting on Tuesday so it is very important that that homework is in school by Tuesday.
Title – Can I research information about insects?
We will be focusing our reports on insects from James and the Giant Peach. This type of report can be found in a non-fiction information text.
Your homework is to research one of the following: grasshoppers, ladybirds, spiders, earthworms or centipedes.
You will need to know about:
- the animals habitat (where it likes to live),
- diet (what it eats)
- Its appearance (what it looks like).
Any extra information; for example, its life span or behaviour would also be useful.
Feel free to bring in or draw any pictures you think may enhance your work.
Remember do NOT copy information straight from the Internet – you must put your research into your OWN words.
Remember you are collecting notes, not producing the final version. Your information should NOT be in full sentences. You need to identify key information and record it so that you can re-use the information in school.
Note making tips
Use headings, labelled diagrams, sub headings, bullet points or collect words and their meanings to put into a glossary.
As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. We will be collecting Home School Books in on Monday.
There will not be any spellings to learn this week.
Have a lovely weekend ☺
Year 4 Team
We are setting you a challenge for homework over the next two weeks. We have been studying stories from other cultures in our English lessons and we would like you to try reading a story from this genre in your personal reading. This will really help you widen the range and styles of books you read.

This website gives some good suggestions: http://kidworldcitizen.org/2012/09/24/10-wonderful-stories-set-in-countries-around-the-world/
We want to see you have tried a story set in another place or culture recorded in your Home school Book – it doesn’t have to be one of the stories listed above. We would also like you to complete a book review for the story that you read and stick this in your English homework book. You can either use the template we have provided or create your own book review template on paper or on the computer.
Who Said What? Sheet – Please complete on the sheet. Remember this is a good opportunity to keep up with your joined handwriting. Keep it neat and write in pen. Remember to stick it in your book so that we can still read the back!
Spellings to be tested
Please ensure you have learnt your next statutory word list. These will be handed out on Friday and tested next week.
Times Tables – Continue to practise your timetables ready for Cracking Times Tables
Reading – Remember to read at least 4 times a week and make a comment on your books.
