Hello to you all. Isn’t it nice to see some sunshine!!
Before we get under way with today, here are Monday's and Tuesday's maths and English answers.
Here’s today’s learning for you.

Did you hear about the hungry clock?

The main task today is English and this will take you the longest amount of time. The history and maths are relatively short tasks.
This week in English, we would have studied performance poetry. You will read an extract from a classic poem called ‘The Charge of the Light Brigade’ and understand the event that is describes.
This poem, by Alfred Lord Tennyson, tells the story of the final battle of The Battle of Balaclava on 24th October 1854. It ended with the legendary British ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’, which was, although misguided, an astonishingly successful operation of war, with relatively few casualties - only 118 killed out of 620. The Russians were so frightened by the cold courage of the British troopers, they never again dared face them again on the battlefield.
Read the poem first of all. There are some tricky words, but we have included two video clips to help you to understand. You could also use a dictionary.
This clip analyses the first three stanzas (verses) to give you an idea of the tone (mood and feeling) of the poem. Don’t worry about the phrase ‘literature component’.
Now answer the questions in the booklet in your exercise book. We will upload the answers, tomorrow.
Once you have done that, you should have a good idea of what the poem is about so that you can perform it later in the week. Maybe some of your family could join in!
For today’s maths, we are going to use some resources from White Rose that have been designed especially for home learning. There is a video to watch, then a task to complete – you can answer the questions in your exercise book.
Start by watching the video for Lesson 3 and then open the pdf sheet underneath for the questions.
Today’s history is about Viking longships. Read the document provided and then watch the two video clips.

Tomorrow, you need to start to put together the next part of your project based on longships.
Don’t forget to look at the Music, French and R.E activities: they look fun!
