Year 6 – Thursday 13th January

Morning Challenge:

On Monday, we learnt some spelling rules for adding suffixes to words ending -fer.


Make a challenge for your classmates to make sure they remember the rule.

You could make:

  • a word search
  • a trivia quiz
  • a board game etc


What do you remember about Caliban?


Have a look at the picture below:

What do you think about the relationship between Prospero and Caliban? Why?

Write an explanation answering the question above.



Have a look at this speech which is said by Caliban:

Speech A

Why, as I told thee, ’tis a custom with him,

I’ th’ afternoon to sleep: there thou mayst brain him,

Having first seized his books, or with a log

Batter his skull, or paunch him with a stake,

Or cut his wezand with thy knife.


What impression do you get of Caliban from this speech? Why? (You can google any words that you are unsure of or e-mail me to ask).


Now have a look at this speech:


Speech B – Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,

Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.

Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments

Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices

That, if I then had waked after long sleep,

Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,

The clouds methought would open and show riches

Ready to drop upon me that, when I waked,

I cried to dream again.


How is this speech different from the first one? What sort of character might say this?



You might be surprised to know that the second speech was also said by Caliban and both speeches happened in the same scene.


Based on what you have learnt, write a description of the 2 sides of Caliban.






Think back to the work that we have completed on fractions, percentages and decimals.
