Thursday 16th July

Good Morning :)

Philosophical question:

Is cheating ever acceptable? Why or why not?


Word of the day: seize


  • Find out what it means and write the definition in your own words!   

  •  What is its word class?   

  • How many syllables does it have (clap each syllable to help you)? 

  •  Make a list of synonyms and antonyms   

  •  Can you use it in an interesting sentence?  

  • Are you able to use it, appropriately, when you are speaking or in any of your writing opportunities


Reading: Head over to the reading challenges area where you can do our last reading comprehension of the week. It is called 'Viking Myths'.


Maths: Today's lesson is called 'Draw on a grid'.

There is also some symmetry mastery questions that were missed off yesterday's documents.




Time for Writing! (Don’t forget to edit and improve after each paragraph!) 

You will have today and tomorrow to complete this. Like in school, we would suggest you use both sessions and not complete in one day. You will have better concentration for shorter periods of time! 


Success Criteria – How many can you cross off? 





Today, we need to revisit our days of the week in order to do our learning well.  Look at the picture below. Can you match the French and English days of the week? You can match them from here and write them into your Home Learning Book or print off a copy (in French Resources), cut them out, match and glue them. It's been a while ... if you not too sure, watch the video below to help you order and pronounce each day. The answer sheet is in the French Resources section.


French Days of the Week

Learn the days of the week in French, from Monday to Sunday.

You will have noticed that days of the week in French don't need a capital letter. However, if you start a sentence with a day of the week, a capital letter is needed e.g. Lundi, je fais de la natation (Monday, I do the swimming).


There are two more phrases we haven't practised for along time: Je mange (I eat) and Je bois (I drink). You will need to know these. Listen to the audio files for support with pronunciation.





Je mange (I eat)
