Philosophical question:

Why are the Arts (music, art, poetry, literature, dance) important?


Word of the day: savour


  • 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?


Head over to the reading challenges section and answer today's questions.


Please start off today by spending some time on Times Table Rock Stars

Today's lesson is called 'Quadrilaterals' and can be found here

The worksheet and the answers are in the documents

If you finish with spare time, there is a challenge called 'Quadrilateral challenges'.


Final Draft  

Today you are going to be editing and improving your draft from yesterday. 

How do you edit and improve your writing?  

Below here is a Self-Editing checklist, which will help you – by the end of your final draft it should all be ticked off! 


When completing your final draft, it is important not to copy your draft verbatim. You may decide to reorganize your sentences or restructure one.   


Once you have completed your final draft, don’t forget you can email them to us! We would love to showcase them on our Term 6 Gallery!  


Exercise plays a very important role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. One of the main ways we get this exercise is by playing sports. What sports do you like? What sports would you like to try that you haven't done before? Today, we are focusing on how to say I play and I do in French.




je joue = I play

In French, we say je joue (I play) when talking about ball games. For example:


je joue a le football                je joue a le cricket           je joue a le tennis          je joue a le basket


In the English language, there are ways to shorten words e.g. contractions (I would = I'd). Similarly, there are ways to shorten some parts of French language. In the above examples, 'a le' can be shortened to 'au'. Now we say:


je joue au football                  je joue au cricket             je joue au tennis           je joure au basket



Je fais = I do

In French, we say je fais (I do) when talking about other sports. For example:


je fais de le velo                     je fais de le skate             je fais de la danse          je fais de la natation


Again, some of these phrases (but not all of them) can be shortened. In the above examples, 'de le' can be shortened to 'du'. Now we say:


je fais du velo                         je fais du skate           


de la does not shorten so stays the same.     


Now complete Activity Sheet 14 - Playing Sports. Remember, ball sports always start with je joue.
