Wednesday 13th May
Morning all - it's the third day of SATs and today you would be attacking the arithmetic paper, and the first reasoning paper. As you can probably guess, this is always my favourite day of SATs week. Deep down I think you all would have enjoyed this one - we did so much practice towards the arithmetic; we always practice harder than the test as well, so you'd have found it easy.
Lots of you will be excited to see that I have started working on our play! I don't want to give too much away, but I'm writing it in a way that it can be done as a film (it may be difficult for us to put a play on in the hall, with all our families watching. So please prepare to all be film stars!
Some characters that I've written so far are as follows:
(I'm not sure who out of the three has the worst hair!)
Anyway, that's enough for today.
I'm in school on Friday, so will be sending some emails and making some phone calls.
Miss you all.
For maths today I'd like you to focus on the white rose home learning. It's based on fractions and going over some work we've done previously in the year. Fractions play such a big part of life in year 6, so it's vital you are really secure with these.
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ Week 4 lesson . This on dividing fractions by whole numbers.
Watch the video and then do the sheets that I have attached (they are no longer given on the website).
Afterwards, I'd like you to do more practice from this link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhw8wty
For English, we have another space themed Guided Reading, I am attaching the task again as a reminder (it hasn't changed since yesterday) and a second WAGOLL for some more inspiration.
I'm sure you are really missing Mrs McCauley, therefore I have some French for you today. If you look on the website there are a few games. You can have a look and see what you would most like to play. Challenge yourself to learn new words.
Finally, I have a really lovely activity. It is a post lockdown bucket list. It is a bit of a craft and art task but also gives you chance to really think about being thankful for the things we might have previously taken for granted. I saw the idea originally with people putting wishes in a jar and then people started writing bucket lists of thing they want to do when the lockdown ends (I have put some pictures on to show you). The template is attached, if you can't print it you can always use it as a guided to make your own.
