Tuesday 9th June

Good Morning :)

Philosophical question:

What would be your absolute perfect day?


Word of the day: adaptation 


  • 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?



Today's challenge is all about WHY, WHERE or WHEN! Go check it out on the reading challenges sub-page! 

Maths :

Today's lesson is called Add two 4 digit numbers, no exchange.

There is an optional challenge to interest you. It is called Maze challenge.



What happens when you add the suffix -que, anything?

See below for task!


Today we are finishing your comic strip!  

Yesterday you should have completed (or nearly completed) the narration for the ‘story’ we are telling! When Mr. Culpeper and Oliver first meet.  

Here is my example of narration I might do to help get you started off!   

  • After a short while, Oliver reached the shoreline. Clambering up the side of the bank he heaved the boat up on the sheltered shoreside. Oliver gathered his backpack and began walking around the island searching high and low and every nook and cranny.  

  • Tripping and falling as he went Oliver continued the search for his parents. To his surprise it only took a minute to walk across to the other side of the island. He paused and looked out at the vast sea ahead of him. A grey cloud loomed in his mind.  

  • Oliver began walking back towards his dinghy calling for his parents in a hope they were hiding somewhere he hadn’t spotted. Echoes of his voice were all that responded. 

  • Unknown to Oliver, there was another on the island and he wasn’t too happy! Rising from his twig-heap on the island’s crown a shadow figure immerged.  

  • The unknown creature stood up and spreading its enormous, dirty-white wings proudly showing of his beauty. There he stood all high and mighty looking down upon the young boy.  

  • Alfie found it hard to process what he was being told. He had never heard of such things before! All sorts began racing through his mind, his heart beating faster by the minute.  

  • Suddenly, shuddering began. There was no turning back now. Determination swept through Alfie’s mind. Clinging on, the island slowly turned around and began to move!  


Today I recommend you completing your comic strip focusing on one box at a time. Once you have finished one box with the drawings with a ‘bubble’, of some sort, move on to the next one. I would calculate that no more than 5 minutes should be spent on each box!  


Like in the classroom, once all is drawn and written then colour it in!  



Read the text carefully and choose the level of questions you would like to answer. Please write in full sentences. For example:


Question: What is the name of the largest ocean in the world?

Answer: The name of the largest ocean in the world is the Blahblah Ocean.


Look at the underlined words. These are all the words I have recycled from the question to help me write my answer. I have only actually added one new word. Genius!
