Welcome to the last week of home learning. Hopefully we will all be back in school next week. The teachers are all really looking forward to welcoming you back to school and have some exciting lessons ready for you!
Let’s get moving first with the cheeky trolls who Can’t Stop the Feeling!
These are your spelling for this week; they are all homophones, words which sound the same, but have different meanings. Write them out in your neatest handwriting and use a dictionary to look up the meanings. If you don’t have a dictionary at home you can use an online one such as
meet hear knot which break
meat here not witch brake
These are your spelling for this week; they all sound the same at the end but they are spelled differently. Can you spot the endings? What is each ending used for? Can you think of a rule to understand which one to use? Write them out in your neatest handwriting and use a dictionary to look up the meanings. If you don’t have a dictionary at home you can use an online one such as
Optician, magician , extension, explosion, exclusion,
profession, mission, possession, fiction, direction
Read the following text a few times to an adult then answer the questions that follow it.
Similes are a great way of helping someone visualise what you are describing by comparing them to something familiar. For example ‘their eyes shone like diamonds’ tells the reader much more than ‘they had shiny eyes’

Look at this landscape picture of The Hobbit hole in The Shire.
We are going to use our similes to write a description of the setting.
As I look across The Shire I see green hills rolling like waves on a peaceful sea.
I see trees as tall as giants.
Tiny Hobbits scurry along the hills like ants on an ant hill.
A road tied like a ribbon around the hills.
Think about what you can see and then compare it to something else using like or as
