If you think you are beaten, you are.

If you think you dare not you don't.

If you like to win, but you think you can't,

It's already a cinch you won't.


If you think you'll lose, you're lost

For out of the world we find

Success begins with a fellow's will.

It's all in a state of mind.


If you think you are outclassed, you are.

You've got to think high to rise.

You've got to be sure of yourself before

You can ever win a prize.


Life's battles don't always go

To the stronger or faster man.

But sooner or later the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he CAN.



Today you are going to be writing a descriptive paragraph for the main character you focused on in yesterday's lesson. Attached is a video, going through the various features we would like to see in your character description.

Guided Reading

Today you are going to be rehearsing an oral presentation about the circulatory system. Using the information you have read over the last few days, I would like you to deliver this information in your own words. Today you can write notes of the key points and have a go at reading them aloud.

Guided Reading - Circulatory system text

Numeracy - Starter

Attached is a mental maths PowerPoint. Please complete the 14 questions in the time given. The answers are on the final slide. You can jot workings out down on a piece of paper.


Today we are carrying on with short division using the bus stop method. Below is a worksheet to complete (you can copy the questions out rather than print off) and a video demonstrating the bus stop method. 

Challenge: If you can remember how to divide by a two-digit number, try a few long division questions today. You can generate your own, making the number you divide by as difficult as you like. For example, dividing by 15 is a lot easier than dividing by 68!
