Afternoon Message - Monday 4th May 2020
Good afternoon Year 6!
I hope you have all enjoyed your day. It has been really lovely to see and hear about the work that lots of you have posted on Seesaw already today! The rest of the Year 6 teachers and I have been impressed with the quality of some of the work we are seeing. However, I do want to give a quick few reminders about the use of Seesaw:
I am sure as the week goes on that the quality of work on Seesaw will continue to get better and better!
Have a great evening! :)
Morning Message - Monday 4th May 2020
Good morning Year 6 and welcome back. I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed spending time with your family. I spent most of my weekend doing DIY, fixing my computer and cleaning - how exciting!
I am very excited today because this is the first day of us officially using SeeSaw to share work with each other. In case you haven't seen the messages on the website and ParentMail, from today you will be using the SeeSaw app to send your work to your teachers - you no longer need to email it to me! Follow the instructions which were sent to you on ParentMail and put on the website to download the app and log in. Once you have logged in, it's super simple. You can take a picture of your work on your phone/tablet and upload it on to the app. Your teacher will then be able to see and and will write a comment to respond. You can then read this feedback from your teacher. I'm sure once it is up and running, you will see it is a much better system than before!
Please try to get this up and running today and send some work to your teacher.
I hope you have a great day! :)
Read for at least 20 minutes. This could be your school reading book, a home book, Bug Club or another text you enjoy. Identify any new and unknown vocabulary and find the definitions.
Today, rather than completing an entire reading comprehension section, you will be focusing on a specific question type. Today is 'Multiple Choice' type questions. Select the difficulty level, depending on how confident you are with these question types. Each difficulty level comes with 3 or 4 short texts, followed by questions for that particular text. The answers are at the end so that you can self mark.
Complete the daily Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) PE lesson.
Visit his YouTube channel here:
Visit the White Rose Maths website here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/
Please complete Lesson One (Simplify Fractions). You can watch the video first to help you, then complete the worksheet and mark it. If you are finding it difficult, re-watch the video or look for other online tutorials (Khan Academy and Mathantics are good places to start).
Practise your weekly spellings. Copy them into your home learning book and write their definitions.
Complete the SPaG activity below. There is a Powerpoint which you can work through to show you how to answer the questions. You can then work on the varied fluency questions. Select either 'Developing', 'Expected' or 'Greater Depth' depending on how confident you are with the topic. You can then mark your work and move onto the application and reasoning sheet.
Today you are going to study the religious beliefs of the Kingdom of Benin. Firstly, read through the PowerPoint below. As you move through the slides, there are some activities which you need to complete in your home learning books. Look through the activity sheet. For each 'group' there is a comparing and contrasting question to answer in your book.
If you are looking for an extra challenge and you have the materials at home, you could have a go at creating the clay animal tile from the PowerPoint!
