Year 6 – Friday 21st January 2022

Morning Challenge:

Start the day with some independent reading.



This week, we have been looking at the scene between Miranda and Ferdinand. Have another look at the scene:

MIRANDA       Alas, now, pray you,

Work not so hard: I would the lightning had

Burnt up those logs that you are enjoin’d to pile!

Pray, set it down and rest you: when this burns,

‘Twill weep for having wearied you. My father

Is hard at study; pray now, rest yourself;

He’s safe for these three hours.


FERDINAND    O most dear mistress,

The sun will set before I shall discharge

What I must strive to do.


MIRANDA       If you’ll sit down,

I’ll bear your logs the while: pray, give me that;

I’ll carry it to the pile.


FERDINAND    No, precious creature;

I had rather crack my sinews, break my back,

Than you should such dishonour undergo,

While I sit lazy by.


MIRANDA       It would become me

As well as it does you: and I should do it

With much more ease; for my good will is to it,

And yours it is against.


Write a summary of what is happening in this scene.



Look again at the scene between Ferdinand and Miranda. Write a diary entry from each of them showing their different viewpoints about the scene.
