Good morning. Here are some activities you might like to do today while you are at home. I'll see you back at school soon.


  • Complete two more SPAG tasks from your orange books, ones that you find tricky. Please clearly label which ones these are.
  • Create a detailed description of your bedroom - try to build suspense by using short sentences, ellipsis, metaphor, personification. (Two paragraphs long, if you don’t have access to paper use the front cover of your grammar book and rule 12 pencil lines on the page.)
  • Research St Patrick (who was he, where was he from, what was he famous for, can you compare him to any people from our time, what scripture might represent him?) See if you can use some Gaelic lettering in your presentation of him. An icon to accompany your research would be delightful.


  • My Maths - any activities that will help you. Try fractions, division and ratio.
  • Mathletics work set online - the due date is Friday 20 March at 3.59pm. 
  • Finish the whole of the maths homework sheet (6SL group), the parts that you missed after the 20 minute timer had finished. 
  • Science work saved below in PDF format. You can either edit the PDF format or write the answers on a plain piece of paper.

Both days

  • Time how long it takes you to fill in a 12x12 multiplication square. Draw one up on scrap paper.
  • Continue to learn the lyrics for our show.
  • Read your book.
  • Any other work that you feel will assist you, I know that you are brilliant at going beyond my expectations.

Well done in advance, children and I look forward to seeing you this week.

Ms Lankester
