Welcome to Wednesday's home learning page. Work your way carefully through the today's activities. We hope you enjoy them!

Writing Task: Discussion Text

Now you should have written both points of view: the positives of learning at school and the positives of learning from home.


Today you will be writing your conclusion. In this final paragraph you will need to carefully consider all of the reasons you have come up with about learning from both school and home to make your final decision: Is learning at school the best way to learn?


Make sure this paragraph includes your opinion and some reasons to support this.

Here is an example to help you:


In conclusion, after carefully considering the positives of both learning environments, I believe that learning at school is the most effective and enjoyable way to learn. Although I have recently discovered that learning from home is possible, for me I have found I learn best surrounded by my friends, my teachers and when following a well-organised daily timetable.


Once you’ve written your conclusion it’s time to start editing. To do this effectively, you need to ensure that you edit through three times to focus upon different features. As you have already have been editing as you go, this should make this easier - however this will be the first time that you have read through the piece as a whole work. Today we will complete edit one.


Remember re-reading aloud is vital - you have to know what it sounds like in the real world! See if can enlist someone in your family to listen and offer suggests as you read it.


Edit one: structure

  • Flow: do your sections link together and is it easy to read? Any clumsy parts that are tricky or do not make sense - edit.
  • Variation / repetition: if you have not purposefully used repetition or it does not work - edit.
  • Paragraphs: have you used these?


Today we will be looking at Dividing Fractions by Integers. Watch the video below carefully as this will help you with your work by working through some examples to get you started.

Please complete the activity below. Have a go at as many questions as you can. It is okay to leave a question if you are struggling. Remember you can print out the sheets, or just workout the answers in your workbook.


A document containing the answers can also be found below so you can mark your own work once you’re finished. You can also use the answer sheet to work through any questions you struggled to answer.

Pentecost – The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit forms part of the Holy trinity – the father, the son and the Holy Spirit. It’s impossible to follow God unless we are led by the Spirit. And the only way to be led by the Spirit is to follow God's command to be filled by the Spirit.


In our previous lesson we learnt that the Holy Spirit arrived at Pentecost and gave the disciples the gifts they needed to be good witnesses for God. Courage isn’t the only gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit plays many roles. See below:

The Bible talks about being led by the Holy Spirit. A good witness spreads the good news.

Galatians 5:22-23 says, "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."


1 Corinthians 12: 7-9 “The Holy Spirit is given to each of us in a special way. That is for the good of all.  To some people the Spirit gives a message of wisdom. To others the same Spirit gives a message of knowledge. To others the same Spirit gives faith.”


Task: Explain what the some gifts of the Holy Spirit are and  how / why these gifts have helped you to be a good witness for God.


Challenge: Can you explain which gift is the most important? Why do you think this?
