As we have discussed in class, your homework for the next 2 weeks (your work should reflect this time given!) is to put together a Science project for the Castleview Science Fair on the 28th of June. You are to produce something USING science or create an experiment to SHOW science. You can work independently or you can work in groups. There will be no time given in school to complete these science projects. 

This website has lots of different ideas that you can think about! 




You have been excellent Celts and Romans this week and you all showed off your historical knowledge well. For your homework this week, we would like you to write a poem based off of picture that you find online. Think about what kind of photographs or paintings would enable you to write most descriptively. Perhaps a landscape or a seascape? 

Your poem does not have to rhyme but you can use rhyme if you wish. 

Some ideas could be found here: 



Your homework this weekend is to prepare for your Roman VS Celt battle! The battle is about who deserves to rule Britain. Please come up with 5 to 6 points that you could use in the battle. Remember to think about:

- Counter arguments

- Why YOUR side deserve it

- Why the other side DON'T deserve it

You don't want to let your side down with poor arguments! You must get ready and be prepared. If you are stuck for points, you only have to search the internet for 'What the Romans did for Britain' or 'What the Celts did for Britain' etc. 

Please bring these points in on a piece of paper to share with your team. 




Your homework this weekend is to learn a new poem off-by-heart to present to the class next week. Please learn one that you have not learnt before. It must be a rhyming poem and be at least three to four stanzas long. THIS IS A FOCUS ON YOUR PERFORMANCE. You must read i with expression and take note of the punctuation in the poem.

There are lots of examples of poetry readings on Youtube! Perhaps you can use one of these to help you learn a poem.

This link will take you to a website where you can learn how to recite poetry like a superstar! 



We hope everyone had fun at Condover and at school over the last week! Your homework is to complete your Boudicca project and learn your spellings for next Friday. Spellings can be found in the last homework update (from before Easter).


Well done for a fantastic Spring term! You have experienced so much, including making Mars Pods, meeting a future Mars colonist, learning about Romans and Celts and creating magnificent portraits in the style of Sandhi Schimmel. 

For your Easter homework, we would like you to do a project on the Celtic warrior Boudicca. This could be in the form of: 

  • a model of Boudicca (maybe a hill fort with her people!)
  • a fictional story
  • an information booklet
  • a PowerPoint


Remember, this is a two week homework so please represent this in your project. We will be so impressed with excellent projects that show you have taken your time, thought carefully and have chosen an interesting way to present it. 

Have an amazing Easter break and enjoy your time off! :-) Stay safe!



Homework: Research Boudicca and make a fact file of this Celtic warrior.


Please think about all of the E-Safety information you have talked about this week and make sure you are always being safe online. There are lots of websites out there to search that will tell you even more information that will help you with being sensible and wise on the internet.

Your homework this weekend is to research Celtic life in Britain. You can research:

- what they ate

- what they wore

- what tools they used

- where they lived

- why they were called 'the Celts'

- their history (Perhaps create a timeline? That would be awesome!) 

- what jobs people did

- when they lived

- where they lived

- what their education was like

- what they were like (peaceful/violent)

If you can find out information for all of these things, we would be so impressed. Please present your information on a poster/as a booklet. Do not bring in the information on a scrap piece of lined paper. Take pride in your homework. 

Spellings (to be tested 17.03.2017)



For your homework this weekend we would like you to create your front cover for your topic book. Our topic is called 'Celts and Romans in Britain'. That is your title for your topic, not just 'Celts and Romans'. You will need to do some research to create an effective front cover.
