Wednesday 29th April

Happy Wednesday!

 

I'm writing this on Tuesday evening. Seth and Lauren made brownies today, and I can't stop eating them. My diet has gone out of the window the last few days; it's about time I did something about it. Tomorrow my aim is to clear a lot of the unhealthy food out of our cupboards, and starting eating more healthily. 

 

I've started watching a program recently called The Test. it is about the Australian Cricket Team. I'm probably just about the only person who would find it interesting, but I'm hooked. The book I'm currently reading is also about an Australian Cricketer - Ricky Ponting. 

I'm also in the middle of reading The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. Think about how well I'd be doing on Accelerated Reader if I were allowed to do the tests. Talking of this:

 

Only about 8 of you have done Accelerated Reader tests since we've been off. It is an expectation that by the end of this week, you will all have completed at least one. I'm very disappointed by this because I've asked you so many times. Get it done please! Here are some reminders. 

 

Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. 

 

Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. 

Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader.

For maths today I'd like you to focus on the white rose home learning. It's continuing our work on angles. Watch the video for Summer Term week 2 Lesson 3 https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/, then do the worksheets and check the answers. This is all about problem solving - our favourite thing!

 

For Guided Reading, we are going to continue looking at Chapter one of 'Private Peaceful', it is a slightly different format but just the same skills. Retrieve a fact, give an impression and find a piece of evidence. I have done the first one as an example. Monday and Tuesday's work will help you. I have attached the text again but it is the same as yesterday so you shouldn't need to print it again.

For English I'd like you to follow this link and do the SPAG work on bullet points.

There are two videos and 3 activities.

For Topic, Mrs Garside found this on BBC Bitesize and I thought it ties in nicely with some of the work on the Topic Grid (check the Topic folder if you have lost yours). It is about the World, where the oceans and continents are and how to read a map. We have used some of these skills before when we learnt about Antarctica, Rivers and right at the beginning of the year when we read 'Flotsam' and looked at the pollution in the oceans. It will help you with the work on Food Miles and on different eco systems around the world. It is really interesting, I wonder if you can find all the places we have learnt about this year? - Pacific Ocean (garbage island for 'Flotsam'), Baghdad (city study for Ancient Islamic civilisation), Lebanon (Oranges in No Mans Land) and Norwich (Floodlands).
