Afternoon message 05.05.20
Hello again everyone,
Huge apologies to you all as I forgot to write my afternoon message! I got very sidetracked after being on Seesaw all day looking and commenting on your lovely work! How did you all get on today? I hope you're enjoying Seesaw as much as I am, it feels really good to be connected with you again and I know the other Y6 teachers are feeling the same.
I've been really enjoying looking at your Miptor work and cant wait to see the finished pieces. I am sure we will post good examples on our website.
I hope you are all keeping safe and well
P.S sorry again for the late message!!
Morning message 05.05.20
It has been lovely to see all your wonderful work on Seesaw and speak to a lot of you individually! We hope to see many more of you accessing Seesaw. Just to add on what Mr. Berry said yesterday, please continue to use Seesaw to upload your work, but we would like to ask a few things of you:
- make sure you are only uploading current work
- you have the answers, please mark your work before you upload it
- on your work and comment posts, please check your spelling and grammar
- keep your presentation neat
- in the comment box indicate what the piece of work is
- please only upload one picture per subject per day. For example, on the timetable today are the subjects: Maths, Literacy, SPaG and Science. So upload one piece from each of those subjects but also one thing about you if you have completed this.
Remember any questions or problems please let your teacher know. I Can't wait to see all your wonderful work today! I'm going to go out on a run this morning and then bake some brownies. I'll let you know what they come out like later and if I have eaten them all . The weather is meant to be much better this week so make sure you try and get outside to enjoy the sunshine!
Have a lovely day Year 6!
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 (Compare and Order 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).
Yesterday, you should have created your Miptor, using your imagination to decide what the creature looks like, it's diet, it's exercise needs etc. This may need a little bit of finishing off at the start of today's session. This will serve as your plan for you to begin writing today.
You are going to write a guide for new Miptor owners about how to care for them. I have attached two example guides below - for kittens and guinea pigs - which will give you an idea of the structure. I have numbered the pages on the examples so you know the correct order.
You do not have to finish the entire piece today, but try to get at least half way through.
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.
Read through the PowerPoint below about adaptation. Complete the activity sheet. On the sheet there are three difficulty levels - 1 star, 2 stars, 3 stars. Select the level of challenge which is appropriate to you. You do not need to complete all three activities. If you do this, you will end up repeating a lot of the same questions!
