English – ‘The House with the Chicken Legs’ 

L.O. I can define and explain what a proverb is.  

Success Criteria:  

  1. I can confidently use ideas, key words and phrases from the text.  

  1. I can interpret what a proverb means.  

  1. I can create my own proverb. 


Baba Yaga often quotes proverbs when she talks to Marinka. (Proverbs are short sayings that contain traditional wisdom or advice.) 

Here are a few of Baba’s proverbs- what do each of them mean to you? 


  • It’s not how long a life, but how sweet a life that counts. 

  • Beware the goat from the front, the horse from the rear and the living from all sides. 

  • The morning is wiser than the evening. 

  • The nightingale that sings finds a song. 


Key Question: What other proverbs have you heard, and what do they mean to you?  


Share, discuss, make notes and research further! 


Spend a bit of time researching proverbs and make a bullet pointed list of the ones that you like, with their meanings. 

Here are some to get you started: 


  • The only way to be a friend is to have one. 

  • Actions speak louder than words. 

  • A bad workman blames his tools. 


Challenge: Can you make a proverb of your own? 


If you have time, you can try and make up some of your own. A tip to help you with this would be to think of an important message first and think of a clever way you could say this. 


L.O. To practise our arithmetic skills. 

I know you all have fantastic arithmetic skills!  Please keep your skills fresh by completing the attached sheet.   

There are 40 questions so just do as many as you can.  Let me know if there are any you found difficult and we can practise them next week.

Today, I want you to choose a member of your family and play your game with them. You will need to teach them the rules and most importantly you will need to have fun. 

Please send pictures of either your game or if you are allowed on the website, I would love some images of you playing your modern version of a historical game.
