This week’s English is based around the Purple Mash book “The lost Myth of Mathos”.

You will need to access Purple Mash to complete some of the tasks.

Session 1




Purple Mash 2Do – The Lost Myth of Mathos

Read chapter 4 and complete the multiple choice comprehension.

Complete the sequencing task in the resources folder.

Challenge: Open ended question sheet in resources folder

Make sure you answer these in full sentences that include the question.

SPAG – LMO Mathos_Chapter4_SPaG

PDF in the resource folder.

Session 2

LMO MATHOS – The Story Continues - PLAN

What happens next? Does the battle happen or is it about to start? Think about where you want to end your chapter/story.

You are going to write the next chapter of the story.

Think about what has happened and then think about how you want the story to continue. You are going to continue with the same characters on the same mission so you need to be clear on your details. Maybe re-read what you have read/written already and think about how to apply that information.

Plan out your story map. Think about taking short notes to jot down your ideas. Remember you don’t have to use all your ideas but it’s better to have too many then not enough.

Session 3

May take two sessions

LMO MATHOS – The Story Continues – WRITE THE STORY

Use the Power-Point for details you should be including in your writing. In particular how to punctuate speech; how to vary sentence structure; vocabulary choices etc.

Take your time to write the story. Use your plan to guide your writing.

Try to continue writing in the style of the original author.

Session 4

LMO MATHOS – The Story Continues – EDIT and REDRAFT

The template for the redraft is on Purple Mash as a 2Do.

Make sure you have spent time editing for sense, errors and improvement. Try reading aloud what you have written. If you stumble or struggle to read a part, think how you could improve it.

The template allows you to change page by clicking on the arrow at the bottom of the page. Make sure your pictures don’t cover up your writing.

There are a lot of sheets (info pages) but you don’t need to print them as they are for reference only.



Optional: (extra research)


Play garden throw-golf.

Decide on the “hole” in your garden and where you start from. See how many throws it takes to get the ball into/to hit the target.

Add in challenges, like it has to bounce of a wall or you can only do one over arm throw.

You could play this with a ball, or a frisbee, and either in the garden, or on a walk.

Adapt the game as you go.

Other Options

Cosmic Kids Yoga – search YouTube

Joe Wicks – daily PE lesson on YouTube





What kind of room has no windows and no doors?




Kate’s mother has 3 children. Two of them are called Snap and Crackle. What is the third child’s name? Kate


Also please remember to:

  • Read EVERY day. I suggest at least 35minutes and that should include reading aloud.
  • Exercise regularly – dog-walks, trampolining, bike rides or creating your own dances are all vital!
  • Practice and revise spellings –working from the whole term list I sent at the start of term.
  • Talk and be open with each other. This could be a very tricky time and I want you all to be happy and healthy when I next see you. Make sure you don’t bottle too much up and you talk if you have any concerns.

Watch the news (optional) Espresso or BBC Newsround are great ways of seeing what is going on.
