Be happy, it's the weekend tomorrow!

Home Learning Blog – Friday, 15th May

Welcome back. Here are today’s lessons:


LO: Writing a powerful speech

  • Read the information, watch the videos, and complete the activities.
  • Activity 2 asks you to write a speech about the importance of friends and friendship, but you may write an informative speech on another topic if you wish – perhaps an interest of yours, or something you know a lot about.
  • Just be sure to use the ‘A FOREST’ acronym to help guide your writing.


LO: Calculating the area of a 2D shape

  • Read the information, watch the videos, and complete the worksheet.
  • In this worksheet, ‘breadth’ means the same as ‘width’.
  • Rectangles are rather easy to find the area of, as we simply multiply the length by the width to find the area, which is measured in cm2.


  • As before, choose 8 words from the list attached below, and write them out in your best handwriting. Please fill one entire line for each word that you choose.

That’s all for now. Have a lovely weekend.
