Monday 29th June

Good morning,


We hope you had a lovely weekend (despite the wet weather!)

This week, our English work will focus on poetry and we will continue with decimals in our maths work.

Just do what you can.


Adverbials of frequency and possibility














Exploring poetry


All poems are made up of words. Poems can tell a story or be about a thought or a feeling. They can be serious or silly, but they always have to use words.

Poems often have a rhythm, which is like a beat in music. The rhythm is quick or slow depending on the words the poet chooses.

Poems can use rhyme, which means that certain words have similar end sounds.

For example: ‘Break’ and ‘lake’ ; ‘cat’ and ‘mat’ ; ‘loud’ and ‘proud’ .

Poems can also use alliteration, which is when more than one word starts with the same first letter or sound.

For example: The slimy, sneaky snake slithered silently.


Watch the BBC clip to find out how to write a poem.

Then if you feel confident, try and write a poem of your own, using the tips from the video.




Tenths on a number line

A number line is another way of representing tenths within a whole. The number line can either be split into decimals or fractions.



Each line represents 0.1 or one tenth.

Can you work out what number is shown on this number line below?

So to find the number the arrow is pointing to, you need to count up in tenths until you reach the arrow.

Remember to check which whole numbers the tenths are between.

The arrow on the number line is pointing to 2.5.

Challenge activity


Using the design you made last week, can you make your own physical habitat for your favourite living thing?

It should include:

* their food and water sources.

* the physical factors there like temperature, ice, sand etc.

* any changes that the living thing has to face.

* other animals that may live there.
