Morning Message - Monday 18th May 2020
Good morning Year 6! Welcome back to the final week of the Summer 1 half term. Next week would be the May half term holiday - time flies!
I hope you all enjoyed the silly SATs last week; I certainly enjoyed reading some of your answers and responses.
This week, we are returning to our normal home learning schedule, with all of the information and resources below. Don't forget to send your work to your teachers on Seesaw. Also, remember to use all of the other great online resources which we have access to: Bug Club, TT Rockstars, Purple Mash etc.
I'm going to leave you with a riddle to try and work out. I'll give you the answer in my afternoon message.
What has a neck but no head?
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 I only want you to complete the first section of the reading paper (Letters To Navy Island). You will complete the second and third parts later on this week so that you can see your overall score. Make sure you mark your answers at the end.
Complete the daily Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) PE lesson.

Visit the BBC Bitesize daily lesson website here (we are no longer using White Rose Maths): https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zncsscw/year-6-and-p7-lessons/1
Please complete today's lesson (check the lesson has today's date!). You can watch the videos first to help you, then complete the activities and mark them. If you are finding it difficult, re-watch the videos or look for other online tutorials (Khan Academy and Mathantics are good places to start).
This week, you are going to write a balanced argument based on whether or not schools should reopen on June 1st for Year 6 children. Today you are going to begin planning your balanced argument. Remember the structure of a balanced argument:
Introduction - introduce the topic and why it is important to discuss it.
Argument 1 - 'for' reopening schools
Argument 2 - 'against' reopening schools
Argument 3 - 'for' reopening schools
Argument 4 - 'against' reopening schools
Conclusion - summing up your arguments and giving a piece of your own opinion.
Begin planning out your ideas today, ready to begin writing tomorrow.
