Today you need to write a paragraph in a formal style to summarise why the highwayman can be considered a bad person.

Look at this example where a paragraph is written about Hades, the god of the dead and king of the underworld in Greek mythology. He is also a character in the Disney film ‘Hercules’ which some of you may have watched.  

Think carefully about how to introduce an idea and support it with evidence. These sentence starters will help you to vary your writing. Can you see which ones Miss Underwood used in her example?

You can also look at this as a reminder of the features you should always be aiming to include in any piece of writing.


We are going to continue using the White Rose resources for maths. Click here to visit the Year 5 area of their website. Today you will need to look at Summer Term Week 2 Lesson 3 (Adding decimals with a different number of decimal places).

Watch the video and then answer the questions by clicking on the ‘Get the Activity’ tab to download the worksheet. 

You can check your work by clicking on ‘Get the Answers’.

Topic (Computing)

Look at the BBC Bitesize activity ‘What are viruses and malware?’.

Another way to protect yourself online is to check websites are secure.

Work through this presentation.

There is also a word search for you to complete. Why not try and create your own if you are not able to access the Internet for very long today?
