Good Morning :)

Philosophical question:

Should a nurse get paid the same as a doctor?


Word of the day: saving


  • 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

You need to answer question 23 which is still from the text 'The Star'. Then read the text called 'Teeth' and answer questions 24 and 25.



Spend some time catching up with any mymaths activities that have been set for you.

Today's lesson is called 'Solve problems with money'

The worksheet (Four operations) and answers are below in the documents.


SPaG :Complete the spelling activity in the documents.



The Ending  

Today we are continuing with your planning but focusing on the final paragraph. Before you start today, look through the planning you did Tuesday and Wednesday. Familiarize yourself with the story you have created to ensure you keep on the right track!  

At the end of your planning, if you are able to, record yourself saying the chapter out loud in full sentences ready for you to come back to on Friday when you are writing! Remember not to save over Tuesday and Wednesday’s recording – you will need all of them. It might be worth labelling the recordings, so you know which is which. 


The Ending  

  • How does the story end? Does it end happily? Is there a twist to the plot? 


Miss Chapman’s Notes: 

Initial Sentence: Cliff has a better wig and feels even happier setting off to the competition. 


  • How do they exchange items on their wigs?  

  • How does Cliff feel afterwards? 

  • What does his Seawig look like now? 

  • What do they do after the Seawig is complete?  

  • Oliver moves things, the Seawigs shrug and fling items off  

  • Chuffed, over the moon, beaming with joy 

  • Glamorous, like a bin heaven, victorious 

  • Set off for the competition  


Your planning should now all be written down! Before you finish today, take the time to read through your story following your planning. You will probably realise you have missed out a key piece of information which is quite pertinent to the story. Sometimes we can find it hard to spot these missing parts so it is a good idea to read/share your story and planning with someone else who can give you peer critique (like we would in school!)  





We are going to be learning about a variety of sports and healthy and unhealthy eating habits. We will be learning the French names for different food and drink and how to express opinions about them. First, have a look at these words. Can you name the food and drink? Some of them you will have seen before. What could help you to work out the ones you are less sure about? Answers are in the Lesson Plan below.


jus d'orange.wma

le poisson.wma

une pomme.wma

les carrotes.wma

le coca.wma

le pomme frites.wma

les bonbons.wma

le chocolat.wma



Step 1

Really take your time to practise saying these words. Focus on PRONUNCIATION. - use the audio files above to help you pronounce them as accurately as possible (Note: French people normally say 'frites' for chips, not 'pommes frites').


Step 2

Game: Qu'est ce que c'est? (What is it?)

Hang Man – take it turns to choose a word. Make sure you have the correct spellings before you draw you lines.

Guessing Game                                                                                                                                                                                 Player A: Draw/write your food/drink (don’t let Player B see it!)                                                                                                      Player B: You have only three guesses for example:  C’est un jus d’orange? (It is orange juice?).



Step 3

Oh la la! The French names for food and drink have been jumbled up (see French Resources)! Put them back in order and write them into your Home Learning Book. Leave a blank line under each word in case you need to re-write or correct the spelling.


Throughout this unit, use your Core Language resource OFTEN. These are key words and phrases you are aiming to learn, say and understand over the course of the term.
