- Practise your spellings for 15 minutes. Pick 6 words from the year 5/6 word list and write definitions for them.
- Mental maths - Try to spend 10 to 15 minutes today doing a mental maths activity. Today, you could have a go at 'Hit the button' - record you best scores for each times table.
- Maths activity - See 'Costing Task' below
- English activity - Using your story plan and ideas from yesterday, write a descriptive opening paragraph to your story. For this paragraph focus on description, rather than action. Think about your different senses. What you see? Hear? Smell? Feel?
Think carefully about the genre (type) of story you are writing and try to set the tone in the opening paragraph. For example, if you are writing a mystery story, then your description is likely to be more mysterious and creepy to help to build tension. If you are writing an adventure story, then your description is likely to be more vibrant and exciting.
