The above picture was taken by one of the class and they edited it themselves.

English: Today in English we're going to be thinking about the structure of the story 'Cinderella of the Nile'.  This task should take a while to complete and this is why I am giving you today and tomorrow to complete it! Today, we're going to focus on the first part of the story.  Rhodopis' journey from her parents home in Greece to the island of Samos, what happens there and then her journey to Egypt. I would like you to create a story map plotting the key points for this first part of the story.  I have uploaded a video of myself making a story map to show you what to do, although we have done this in school!  Your story map should be annotated with memorable lines and the emotions that Rhodopis is feeling at each point as well as key words, for example, but, so, next etc.


Brain Break


Maths: Meet me at 10 o'clock where we will be looking at the 11 and 12 times tables again. We will be thinking about how the 10, 1 and 2 times tables can help us work out the 11 and 12 times tables. We will work through examples, of chilli 1, 2 and 3 before the end of the session.

Chilli 1: Draw a pictorial representation for each calculation and complete the sentences.
10 lots of       =      
      lot(s) of      =      
     x      +       x       =       x       =       


Chilli 2: Use Base 10 to represent and solve these calculations.

I know that you most likely won't have Base 10 at home with you but there is plenty of ways you can represent 10s and 1s.  You could use 1 and 10p coins, spaghetti for 10s and smaller pieces of pasta for 1s, large buttons for 10s and small buttons for ones, large spoons for 10s and teaspoons for 1s, etc.  If you really don't want to use any of those, you could represent them on the computer using this website:


Chilli 3: Draw a bar model (like the one below) and write a number sentence for each calculation.


Brain break (you could watch the PSHE: wellbeing session on BBC iplayer, I circled it on the timetable for this week!)


RE:  Watch the first RE video where I explain the first part of your RE lesson.  I'd like you to think of some general rule for life, what have you come up with?

Then watch the BBC bitesize video:

Now watch and listen to my second video:

How many of your general rules are similar to the Ten Commandments, give them a tick if they are similar. Then sort the Ten Commandments into the categories easy to follow and hard to follow. Next can you order the commandments into most important to least important.  Why are these the most important and least important?  

Finally, can you decide on your own 'most important rule to make a good world', it can be one of the Ten Commandments, but it might be your own.  Explain why you think this is the most important rule of all!


Don't forget that you can also complete a spelling activity, read a chapter of 'Secrets of a Sun King' and complete a guided reading task (I didn't have many in last week!), complete your optional Maths task do some personal reading, listen to the weekly music and complete the daily PE activity and activities for the Get Set to Tokyo challenge!
