Afternoon Message - Tuesday 21st April 2020
Hi everybody! I hope you have enjoyed your day.
I hope your diary entries have got off to a good start. We will be continuing them tomorrow, making sure that they are really emotive and demonstrating our best writing ability.
I have begun keeping my food diary today; I think I had a few too many biscuits with my tea at lunch time! Hopefully you have begun writing yours and have begun to think about how healthy your diet has been today. You will need to fully evaluate your food diary at the end of the week so make sure you keep them updated.
Have a wonderful evening and enjoy some quality time with your family. Perhaps read with one of your parents, play a game with your brothers/sisters or send your grandparents a lovely video or text message to show them that you care!
We will speak tomorrow! :)
Morning Message - Tuesday 21st April 2020
Welcome to Tuesday everyone! I hope you had a restful evening and are ready to hit the ground running today.
Today you should begin writing your diary entries. Make sure you read my instructions carefully and also use the checklists that have been provided to ensure you create a fantastic, emotive piece of writing.
For DT today, we are going to begin keeping a food diary. This might seem easy to begin with, but you are going to evaluate your diet at the end of the week, so make sure your food diary is as accurate as possible. You might want to begin your DT this morning so that you can start your food diary straight away, rather than waiting until this afternoon! I am going to complete mine too and I will post it for you all to see!
Have a fantastic day and don't forget to contact me if you need me. :)
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.
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 Two (Angles in a Triangle). 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).
Yesterday, you should have completed your plan for your diary entry based on a day during your Easter break. Today you need to begin writing it, using your plan to support you. You have a few days to finish writing, so don't rush. Make sure that it is high quality, detailed and descriptive. I should be able to feel your emotions coming through in your writing. You can check the specific diary writing checklist below, as well as the general Year 6 TAF. The TAF is split up into 3 sections - 'Working Towards', 'Expected' and 'Greater Depth'. You should ALL be using everything on the 'Working Towards' section. MOST of you should be able to meet the 'Expected' criteria. SOME of you should be aiming to meet the 'Greater Depth' criteria.
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.
Our DT topic for this half term is based on food and healthy eating. To begin this topic, we would like you to complete a food diary for what you are eating over the next five days. Please have a look at the template below. You can draw this out in your home learning book and then complete it throughout the week. Once you have completed your food diary, we would like you to evaluate your eating habits for the week. Has your diet been balanced? Is it healthy/unhealthy? How could it be improved?
