TABITGB Chapters 22 and 23


LO: To respond to a poem and use it to improve our own writing

1)  List to this audio track of the poem 'The Cave of Curiosity' by Pie Corbett.

The Cave of Curiosity

2) Now, read the poem on the document a few times and have a go at answering the questions on the sheet, in your books.

Activity  9: Extending our ideas to write our own.

Now, we will try and improve the poems we wrote yesterday, by extending them.  Here are is one way to do this:


a)  Adding in more detail. 

Here we want to describe more about either the place or the abstract noun and we will do this using a well-chosen adjective.


The city of silence...   The forgotten city of silence

The city of silence...   The city of frozen silence

The city of silence...   The forgotten city of frozen silence


Now, add some well-chosen adjectives to the lines you wrote yesterday and make sure the adjectives you choose actually add something to the writing.  TIP: Too many adjectives are less effective than one well-chosen adjective.


Maths Year 5/6

LO: To draw line graphs

As a printer is needed for the questions today, I have also set some similar work on My Maths which you could do instead.  If you are able to print, use the video to help you answer the questions and then mark your work.


Year 6

LO: To convert metric measures

Today we are making sure we understand how to convert metric measures.

Have a look at these conversions below, to remind yourselves about what I'm talking  about.


10 mm (millimetres)  in 1 cm (centimetres)

100 cm in 1 m (metres)

1000 m in 1 km (kilometre)


1000 g (grams)  in 1 kg (kilogram)


1000 ml (millilitres) in 1 l (litre)


Watch the video, then have a go at answering the questions on the sheet, marking your work after.

Internet Safety - Lesson 3

Firstly, here are the answers to some of yesterday's questions:

2) Who wrote a mean comment about Alfie?   (The Popcorn Wizards)
3) Who ‘liked’ the comment? (Sam)
4) Why wasn’t this a kind thing to do? (It might upset Alfie; Sam is meant to be Alfie's friend)

After watching the film, answer these questions in your books or discuss with an adult. (answers tomorrow)
  1. What does Sam do with Megan’s baby photo?
  2. How does Megan feel and what does she do in response?
  3. What upsets Ellie and who does she turn to? 
  4. Is Magnus the best person to support Ellie? Who else could help?

Activity 2: What's okay to share?

It is important to think about how someone else might feel if you share a photo or video of them. Sometimes people share photos or videos that might be unkind, or upset or embarrass other people.

  1. When does this happen in PLS?
  2. Read each scenario on the activity sheet and circle the appropriate thumb. If you can’t print it, use your books. (Answers tomorrow)
