Good Morning!

 

I would like to remind you that if you need new reading books, we do have lots available at school near the offices so you can come and choose one during the school day. We also have more Home Learning Journals if you are nearing the end of your book. 

Thank you to all of you who have emailed this week, I have really enjoyed talking to you and seeing your photos!

 

Well done to those of you who are taking part in our tournament! I've been looking at your stats and some of you are getting incredibly quick on your times table recall, which is amazing!

 

Those of you who haven't been on TTRockstars this week make sure you get over there!

Maths

Task 1: 10 minutes on TTRockstars

Task 2: 10 minutes to complete an arithmetic page in your booklet

Task 3: MNP - Today's lesson is quite long, so I would like you to pay careful attention to your let's learn task and complete your guided practice. I have also added a mini journalling task, look our for it below. Record your journal task and guided practice in your Home Learning Journal. You will do your workbook tomorrow.

Use the challenges below to improve your sentences, I expect all of you to try to use as many of these techniques as you can in your sentences. 

 

Grammar/Punctuation challenges:

  1. Use a colon
  2. Use commas to separate items in a list
  3. Use an expanded noun phrase (use adjectives to describe a noun)
  4. Circle/underline the pronouns in your sentences

English

 

 

You have spent this week exploring the image on the left. Using all of your ideas from across the week (including your improved sick sentences, your onomatopoeia, your Monday question time answers and anything you might have magpie-ed from the story opener that i shared) you are now going to write a diary entry based on the image.

 

 

You can write from the perspective of either:

  • Tim (sitting in his jeep),
  • the dinosaur
  • or one of the birds observing the scene from above.

 

Make sure you use your writing mats to show all of the things that you know I expect to see from Y6 writers. 

Reading

I've started reading a book called 'Malamander' this week. I was really impressed with the first few chapters when I was reading yesterday and wanted to share them with you smiley

 

Your task today is to read the extract from 'Malamander' and write a few sentences sharing your first impressions of the story. It would be fantastic if you could email me some of those impressions to share on our Book Reviews page. 

 

Here are some questions you might want to consider as you write your impressions:

  • Has the author successfully hooked you in? How?
  • Would you continue reading the rest of the story?
  • What type of story do you think it will be? Is it intended to be scary, funny, a horror tale etc?
  • What do you particularly like about the story so far? What do you dislike?
  • How do you feel about the characters? 

 

Here is the link to find the text: https://us.eerie-on-sea.com/wp-content/uploads/malamander-excerpt.pdf

I'll also upload the document below in case that doesn't work. You can read the link on any device or print it if you are able to/prefer. 

RE

Last term, you learnt about Hinduism with Mrs Garbutt in your RE lessons. Read through the information cards below and then write a fact file about Hindu Gods. You could choose to write about all of the Gods shown below, or to choose just one or two of them and write a more detailed fact file - to do this you either need to remember what you learnt in your lessons or be able to do some extra research. I know you spent a lot of time discussing Brahma, so you should be able to write about him. 

 

If you've done lots of writing already today and feel like you need a writing break, then you could produce your fact file in other ways:

  • If you have a phone/tablet, you could video yourself doing a presentation about Hindu Gods where you share what you know about them (it might be a good idea to write a few bullet points to remember what you want to say)
  • You could draw a picture of one God and annotate it with lots of information about them

 

I downloaded the fact cards from here: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-t-28543-hindu-gods-fact-cards there is a powerpoint presentation to go with them if you'd like extra help with your research https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-re-236-new-hindu-gods-and-goddesses-powerpoint 

You can access it there if you have made an account but I will save the file at  the bottom of the page if you haven't and would like to use it smiley
