Daily Learning Blog – Monday, 15th June

Welcome back to another wonderful day of learning. I hope you all had fantastic weekends. Let’s get started!


LO: Describing a setting

  • I would like you to describe the image above. Please make sure to include:
    • Simile
    • Metaphor
    • Personification
    • Good adjectives
    • Adverbs and adverbial phrases
    • Symbolism
    • Variety of conjunctions and punctuation
  • Be sure to appeal to the senses – what you can see, touch, smell, taste, and feel
    • You want the reader to feel like they are there (imagine they can’t see the image you’re describing)
    • You should be writing at least 7 sentences.


LO: Fractions assessment

  • I have attached a fraction assessment for you to complete. It is 12 questions long
  • Please complete the first 6 questions today, and we will complete the other 6 questions tomorrow.
  • Please ensure you complete the questions using the strategies and techniques we have learned over the past several weeks.
  • Fractions are some of the harder maths topics in Year 5, so don’t become discouraged if you struggle or can’t remember some of the methods straight away.
  • You can always look back in your book to see some of the methods from previous days.
  • Please refrain from checking the answers at the end of the document – it will spoil your learning!


Here are the 10 Commandments. Read them, and answer the questions about them below:

  1. Worship no god but me.  Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth.  Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the Lord your God.
  2. Do not use my name for evil purposes.
  3. Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy.  You have six days in which to do your work, but the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated to me.  On that day no one is to work – neither you, your children, your slaves, your animals, nor the foreigners who live in your country.  In six days I, the Lord, made the earth, the sky, the seas, and everything in them, but on the seventh day I rested.   That is why I, the Lord, blessed the Sabbath and made it holy.
  4. Respect your father and your mother, so that you may live a long time in the land that I am giving you.
  5. Do not kill.
  6. Do not be unfaithful.
  7. Do not steal.
  8. Do not lie against your neighbour.
  9. Do not be greedy and want what other people own.
  10. Do not take another’s husband or wife.


Questions to complete in your come learning book:

  1. Which Law do you think is most important and why?
  2. How do you think these Laws helped the Israelites to live in harmony with one another?
  3. Which day of the week is the holy day for Christians?
  4. How do many Christians observe this?
  5. Who are the first three Laws concerned with and why?
  6. Who are Laws 4 - 10 concerned with?
  7. Which of these beliefs and values are most important to us today and why?


That’s all for today! Have yourself a great rest of the day.
