Task 2: We have now seen how Marvello and Cassie react in various situations. Compare and contrast these two characters using what you know about them so far.

Think about:

  • Their personality
  • Their strengths and weaknesses
  • What people may like and dislike about their personalities
  • Use the word document to create your comparisons and make sure you use evidence from the text to back up your ideas!

Something fun!

We are going to set you another project for the week, focused around the theme of ‘jungle’.

Have a go at creating a collage of the jungle. This can be on a piece of paper or 3D! You can paint, draw, use coloured paper; the possibilities are endless!

Here are some ideas:

Think about the animals that could be in the collage (link this to your research from last week), the type of plants, trees and flowers that you would find in the jungle.


Keep in touch – remember any work you have completed can be emailed to us to be marked. This can be typed work or a photo.


Stay safe.
