I have attached 2 English tasks this week again. You can choose which to do or it would be great if you could complete them both. Remember to send me your amazing work.

The Mysterious Door

Question time!

What will emerge from the tiny door?

How will the boy react to seeing it emerge?

‘The Borrowers’ is a book by Mary Norton about little people called ‘Borrowers’ who borrow things from people’s houses. What do you think the difference is between borrowing and stealing? Have you ever borrowed something, but then forgotten to give it back? Is that stealing?

If we borrow every single book from a library, is that borrowing? Is it still a library?

If I ask you if I can steal your pencil case and you say yes, is that stealing?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of what will emerge from the tiny door?

Story starter!

On a quiet day, you can sometimes hear them. Every now and then, there’s be a tapping or a scraping or a rustling from behind the door. Occasionally (if you’re patient enough to sit for the whole day and watch), movement can be glimpsed through the dark windows. Once, just once, the faint sound of whispering in hushed tones was heard.

The boy had spent his entire summer holidays wishing for something to emerge from the mysterious door. He had spent yet another sunny morning hiding in the tall grass at the bottom of his garden just staring at the door, hoping to catch a glimpse of something or someone extraordinary.

The moment he had been waiting for had finally arrived…The door began to slowly creak open…

Sentence challenge!

Can you use relative clauses to add extra information to a sentence using who, which, where, when, whose or that?

E.g. He could see the mysterious door at the bottom of the garden, which had troubled him for so long.

The young boy, who had been sitting there all morning, was delighted when the door began to open.

The tiny creature, whose eyes were the size of peas, emerged from the stone door.

The door, which___________, creaked slowly open.


Question time!

Why might books be forbidden in Barrowtown?

What is it that Lucy has discovered?

How do you think she is feeling?

What do you think would happen in the world if nobody could read?

What do you think Lucy will do with her newly discovered secret?

Do you think anyone else knows about the library?

How big do you think the library is?

If you could save one book in the entire world, what would it be?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw a picture of your favourite character from a book?

Story starter!

In Barrowtown, books were forbidden. There was a strict penalty given to anyone caught reading.

When Lucy wandered off on another of her adventures in the woods that morning, little did she know that she was about to make an extraordinary discovery…

Sentence challenge!

Imagine what the books in the library are like. Can you make a list of adjectives to describe them?

Can you use adjectives to improve this sentence?

Lucy picked up a book from the shelf, and carefully turned its pages.

Here are some non-screen activities you coud do to keep you busy too.


Did you and your family members have the Lockdown Sports day last week? I can’t wait to see the pictures. If you didn’t get round to it, why not do it this week. We did lots of the races in the Barr household and it was great fun.

Have another good week Parrots and I look forwards to seeing what you have all been upto.
