Spelling (20 minutes)
We are now going to be focusing on words with silent letters. Remember that we always have some additional words from our Years 5 and 6 word list too.
New words –
knew, wrestle, bomb, fasten, honest, island, plumber, honour, sincere, soldier
Look up the definitions of any words that you are not familiar with. You could record them in a notebook or on paper. Then practise spelling the words (write, write, cover and write, cover and write, check). Continue to practise any you do not spell correctly.

Science (1 1/2 hours) - Light
Resources: lined paper, blank A4 paper, pencil, blue pen, green pen and ruler.
Firstly, please write your date and LO on lined paper.
LO: I can explain how we see and I can label the main parts of the human eye and explain their function.
Read the information sheet provided about how we see things.
Look carefully at the diagrams on the sheet and read ‘How we see light sources’ and ‘How we see objects that are not light sources.’
Watch these videos and read the information on the pages:
Activity 1: draw a table with 2 columns with the titles ‘How we see light sources’ and ‘How we see objects that are not light sources’ (see second page of sheet for an example). Make this table quite large (fill the whole page).
Draw the pictures on the right hand side into the correct column and create your own diagrams to explain how we see things. Add your own arrows to show the path of the light. See Figure 1 and 2 for examples of this on the first page.
Activity 2: Read the information sheet provided about the human eye and then watch this video:
Draw an example of an eye (see sheet for example) on A4 blank paper, draw arrows and label the parts of the eye. Then, copy the relevant descriptors on your sheet.
Use the diagram of the eye from the first page of the sheet to mark your work in green pen.
