Class 5 Homework Week beginning 07/05/18

RevisionPlease continue to revise for your SAT’s. If you need anything else to support you please let me know.

Tuesday – We have started to look at our Pop-Up Festival book, ‘Cogheart’ by Peter Bunzel. One of the main characters in the book is Malkin; he is a mechanimal.

A mechanimal is a mechanical-animal a bit like Malkin in Cogheart. They are mechanical pets who you need to wind up to make go, and they have their own skills and personalities. Have a go at designing your own mechanimal now and then write a short description of it.

Make sure you answer all the following questions.

  • If you could have any kind of mechanical animal what would it be?
  • What’s its name? Can it talk?
  • What is its appearance?
  • What’s its personality like?
  • What are it’s like and dislikes?
  • What are its special skills and abilities?
  • Can it do anything a normal robot can’t do?
  • Is it a pet or more like a wild animal? And as a result what is its diet and habitat like?

Your homework needs to be completed on A3 plain white paper (which I have provided). It should include a labelled picture (which is coloured) of your mechanimal and then a written description. It MUST be presented to the best of your ability and written to a high standard.
