Reading (30 minutes)
Have a look back at the same text from yesterday:
So please your grace, the Prologue is addressed.
Let him approach. Flourish of trumpets
Enter QUINCE for the Prologue
If we offend, it is with our good will.
That you should think, we come not to offend,
But with good will. To show our simple skill,
That is the true beginning of our end.
Consider then, we come but in despite.
We do not come as minding to content you,
Our true intent is. All for your delight
We are not here. That you should here repent you,
The actors are at hand and by their show,
You shall know all that you are like to know.
In this same interlude it doth befall
That I, one Snout by name, present a wall.
And such a wall, as I would have you think,
That had in it a crannied hole or chink,
Through which the lovers, Pyramus and Thisbe,
Did whisper often, very secretly.
This loam, this rough-cast and this stone doth show
That I am that same wall; the truth is so.
And this the cranny is, right and sinister,
Through which the fearful lovers are to whisper.
O grim-looked night! O night with hue so black!
O night, O night! Alack, alack, alack,I fear my Thisbe’s promise is forgot.
And thou, O wall, thou sweet and lovely wall
That stands between her father’s ground and mine!
Thou wall, O wall, O sweet and lovely wall,
Show me thy chink, to blink through with mine eyne!
Wall holds up his fingers
Thanks, courteous wall. Jove shield thee well for this.
But what see I? No Thisbe do I see.
O wicked wall, through whom I see no bliss!
Cursed be thy stones for thus deceiving me!
O wall, full often hast thou heard my moans,
For parting my fair Pyramus and me.
My cherry lips have often kissed thy stones,
Thy stones with lime and hair knit up in thee.
I see a voice; now will I to the chink,
To spy an I can hear my Thisbe’s face. Thisbe?
My love thou art, my love I think.
O kiss me through the hole of this vile wall!
I kiss the wall’s hole, not your lips at all.
Wilt thou at Ninny’s tomb meet me straightway?
‘Tide life, ‘tide death, I come without delay.
Exeunt Pyramus and Thisbe
Thus have I, Wall, my part dischargèd so;
And, being done, thus Wall away doth go.
Enter Lion and Moonshine
You, ladies, you, whose gentle hearts do fear
The smallest monstrous mouse that creeps on floor,
May now perchance both quake and tremble here,
When lion rough in wildest rage doth roar.
Then know that I, one Snug the joiner, am
A lion-fell, nor else no lion’s dam,
For if I should as lion come in strife
Into this place, ‘twere pity on my life.
This lantern doth the hornèd moon present:
Myself the man i’ th’moon doth seem to be.
All that I have to say, is, to tell you that the lantern is the moon;
I, the man in the moon; this thorn-bush, my thorn-bush; and this dog, my dog.
This is old Ninny’s tomb. Where is my love?
O!Thisbe runs off
Sweet Moon, I thank thee for thy sunny beams,
I thank thee, Moon, for shining now so bright,
What dreadful dole is here?
Eyes, do you see?
How can it be?
O dainty duck! O dear!
Thy mantle good,What, stain’d with blood!
Come, tears, confound:Out, sword, and wound
The pap of Pyramus,Ay, that left pap,Where heart doth hop:Stabs himself
Thus die I, thus, thus, thus.
Now am I dead,Now am I fled,My soul is in the sky.
Tongue, lose thy light,Moon take thy flight,
Now die, die, die, die, die.
Asleep, my love?
What, dead, my dove?
O Pyramus, arise!Speak, speak. Quite dumb?Dead, dead? A tomb
Must cover thy sweet eyes.These lily lips,This cherry nose,These yellow cowslip cheeks,
Are gone, are gone!Tongue, not a word.
Come, trusty sword,Come, blade, my breast imbrue.Stabs herself
And farewell friends,Thus Thisbe ends:Adieu, adieu, adieu.
Moonshine and Lion are left to bury the dead.
Ay, and Wall too.
BOTTOM [Starting up]
No I assure you; the wall is down that parted their fathers.
Will it please you to see the epilogue, or to hear a Bergomask dance between two of our company?
No epilogue, I pray you; for your play needs no excuse.
Never excuse: for when the players are all dead, there need none to be blamed. Sweet friends, to bed.
Now answer these questions about what you have read:
1) Who reads the prologue?
2) What warning does the prologue give?
3) Who are the lovers?
4) What time of day is the beginning of the play set? How do you know?
5) What problem are the lovers facing?
6) Where do Thesbe and Pyramus agree to meet?
7) What happens to the lovers?
8) What story does this remind you of? Why?
Writing (1 hour)
Think back to the reading that you have just read of the play script.
I want you to imagine that you are directing a modern version of this play.
Rewrite the playscript using modern day language.
Have a look through this PowerPoint to help you with the key features before you begin:
Maths (1 hour)
Here are today’s Rapid Reasoning questions:
What can you remember about algebra?
Here are some of the rules you learnt yesterday:
- Letters and symbols can represent numbers
- The same letter or symbol within the same calculation must have the same value
- Different letters and symbols within the same calculation must have different values
Today, we are going to look at simple algebra equations (like the ones on the PowerPoint yesterday).
2 + a = 7
Our job is to work out what the a represents. To do this, we simply need to figure out which number would make the calculation correct.
2 + ? = 7
2 + 5 = 7
a = 5
Now try these:
1) 15 – b = 12 b =
2) 22 + c = 32 c =
3) 12 x d = 48 d =
4) 47 + e = 100 e =
5) p – 52 = 50 p =
6) f x 3 = 33 f =
7) 27 divided by g = 3 g =
8) 123 + o = 245 0 =
9) 425 – r = 123 r =
10) 2.5 + t = 7 t =
You might also see calculation like this:
2a = 16
When a number and a letter appear next to each other without a operation symbol, it means we need to multipy.
2a = 16 is the same as
2 x a = 16
Again, we need to figure out what the missing number is.
2 x a = 16
2 x ? = 16
2 x 8 = 16
a = 8
Now you try these:
1) 4a = 16 a =
2) 2b = 12 b =
3) 6c = 72 c =
4) 9g = 108 g =
5) 12s = 144 s =
6) 10v = 120 v =
7) 7h = 56 h =
8) 16n = 48 n =
9) 20j = 240 j =
10) 15p = 105 p =
We might also get questions like this:
2a + 7 = 11
For this we need to use the inverse operation to work out what a is.
2a + 7 = 11
11 – 7 = 4
2 x a = 4
2 x ? = 4
2 x 2 = 4
a = 4
Let’s check that works:
(2 x 2) + 7 = 11
4 + 7 = 11
Yes, that is correct.
Now you try:
1) 7x + 9 = 23
2) 5a + 7 = 42
3) 4b + 3 = 51
4) 9f + 5 = 41
5) 4k – 1 = 31
6) 3h – 4 = 29
7) 6l – 5 = 31
8) 5j – 1 = 64
9) 2x + 5 = 11
10) 9x – 4 = 32
Finally, we might get questions like this.
a = 4 b = 5 c = 6
2a + c – b = ?
Your job is to use the information that you have to work out the missing answer.
2a + c – b = ?
(2 x a) + c – b =?
(2 x 4) + 6 – 5 = ?
8 + 6 – 5 = ?
14 – 5 =?
14 – 5 = 9
? = 9
2a + c – b = 9
Now you try:
a = 3 b = 5 c = 2 d = 8
1) a + b =
2) b + d =
3) c + d =
4) d – a =
5) a – c =
6) 2c =
7) ab + cd =
8) bc + ca =
9) ab divided by 3 =
10) 2a + b – c =

RE (1 hour and 30 minutes)
Today’s question is:
What were the significant events in Moses’s life?
How many of the main events from Moses’s life can you remember?
Remind yourself by watching some of the clips again (some of the clips are new). There are a lot of clips but take the time to watch them and enjoy them:
I would like to to create a storyboard/cartoon strip which shows the story of Moses.
It could look something like this:
but I would like yours to include writing aswell.
To help out, here is a list of the main events that you might want to include:
- Left in basket in river by mother.
- Raised with Egyptians but kills Egyptian taskmaster.
- Flees Egypt.
- God speaks to him through Burning Bush and tells him to rescue Israelites.
- God sends ten plagues.
- Returns to Egypt and rescues Israelites.
- Parts the Red Sea and Israelites are finally free.
- Is given the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai.
Today is online safety day, so we are going to take everything that we have learnt over the last few weeks to complete this lesson.
Work through the levels at the game below:
to show how internet safe you are.
Let us know how you got on.
Continue with this week’s competition.
Here is the next chapter of The Explorer for you to enjoy:
Well done Year 6 for another fantastic day!
See you tomorrow!
