English – Reading:

This half term, we will be reading How To Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. Read the text and have a go at answering the questions underneath. I have put the text and questions both as a picture and a document. They are both the same but you can decide which is easier to view on your device.

  1. What does gorge mean?
  2. Who did the dragon land on?
  3. What did the dragon do to Wartihog?
  4. What did Gobber do to save Wartihog?
  5. How did Gobber eventually get rid of all the dragons that came down?
  6. Why did Gobber count heads?
  7. What was Gobber wandering about standing at the mouth of the dragon’s cave?
  8. Who admitted to waking the dragons up?
  9. What does the work annihilate mean?
  10. Why do you think the last sentence of Gobber’s speech at the end is written in capital letters?  


Times tables starter:

Today in maths, we are learning about dividing 2 digit numbers by a 1 digit number. Watch the following video and have a go at the questions underneath on paper.

Divide 2-digits by 1-digit (2)


Writing about your pets 

  1. Go to and recap the names of animals from last lesson. Tutorials and / or activities.
4 German tutorials to learn Pets free online with audio Introduction to the German topic Pets. You start the tutorial with an activity that introduces the German Pets words or sentences you will be learning. You will see a set of pictures one at a time, and for each picture you will see the written word and hear the German audio for that picture.

2. Take a look at this sentence builder grid : 

3. Using the grid to help you, write a sentence about your own pets, or what you would like to have if you don’t have pets. Change the name to fit your pets. Eg: Ich habe einen Hund. Er heißt Max. Er ist braun, weich und lustig. (= I have a dog. He is called Max. He is brown, soft and funny.) Then write 4 more sentences about pets other people have. 

4. Read the sentences below and answer the questions on a piece of paper:

Markus: Ich habe ein Kaninchen. Es heißt Snowy. Es ist weiß und lebhaft.

Andreas: Ich habe zwei Hunde. Sie heißen Rolf und Marley. Sie sind groß, braun und lustig.

Maria: Ich habe eine Schlange und eine Maus. Die Schlange heißt Nemo und die Maus heißt Carlos. Die Schlange ist braun und gelb. Die Maus ist klein und weiß.

Martina: Ich habe eine Katze und ein Meerschweinchen. Die Katze heißt Mitsy und das Meerschewinschein heißt Domino. Mitsy ist grau und Domino ist schwarz und weiß. 


  1. Who has a grey cat?
  2. Who has a rabbit? What colour is it?
  3. Who has a mouse? What is the mouse called?
