I hope you’re getting used to your new home learning routine. Here are today’s activities:


  • LO: Writing a descriptive passage
  • Write a detailed description of the thumbnail image featured at the top of today’s blog post. Remember features of good writing:
    • Ambitious adjectives
    • Figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification, imagery, symbolism)
    • Relative clauses (remember that they must begin with ‘that’, ‘which’, ‘who’, or ‘whose’.)
    • Range of punctuation


  • LO: Adding numbers with decimals
  • Complete the questions on the uploaded document
  • Remember to use the partitioning and rounding methods to help you
  • 2.3 + 4.4 =
  • 2 + 4 = 6
  • 0.3 + 0.4 = 0.7
  • 6 + 0.7 = 6.7
    • So, 2.3 + 4.4 = 6.7



  • Work up a sweat by completing a home workout. This can be completed anywhere that you have space – in the garden, living room, or bedroom. Make sure the space is clear of any clutter or mess.
  • Get brothers and sisters involved if they would like to take part!

  • Remember to stretch before and after exercising.
