Good morning Year 6 and HAPPY SATs WEEK! I’m finding it really strange to think that if we were having a ‘normal’ year, you would all be sitting your first SATs tests in the hall today! Instead, I have delivered a pack of SATs tests to your door over the weekend, and I hope you can complete the first day’s worth today: grammar and spelling. It would be great to see photos of videos of you completing these over the week, so ask your parents to send me some in and I will compile a little SATs week video if I get enough! Remember to stick to today’s SATs tests only – don’t open any others until the correct day! I hope you enjoy your silly SATs week and it gives you a little laugh in these tricky times.
Did you watch Boris Johnson give his update last night? He mentioned that schools may reopen from 1st June for Year 6 pupils as well as Year 1 and Reception. I am hoping that it will be safe for us to get back into school before the end of the academic year, but not sure really what this would look like at the moment! I guess we will need to keep waiting and see what happens…
As well as your silly SATs tests, your tasks for today are as follows…
Maths: multiplying fractions and mixed numbers by integers
Continue to spend about 10 minutes each day working on your times tables on TTRS or hit the button in order to keep them fluent and up to the speeds and accuracy we have worked so hard to achieve.
After that, use the link below to find today’s lesson on multiplying fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers (an integer). Work through the activities and then mark your work using the answers provided.
English: writing a report
For today’s English task, follow the link below to work through the exercises on writing a report. I’d love to see some of your final pieces of report writing on a celebrity of your choice once you have completed all of the tasks and perfected your ideas in Activity 3. Remember to draft your ideas first so that your writing is as good as it is at school and to use the editing processes we use too (re-reading your work and checking for errors or ways to improve).
Well-being: listen to the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone read by Daniel Radcliffe
If you fancy a challenge, have a go at the chapter challenges after you have listened to the first chapter being read. I have linked them below.
Your topic tasks for this week…
As you have your silly SATs tests to complete this week, as well as your daily maths, English and well-being activities, I will not be providing any new chilli challenges until next week. If you would like more activities to keep you entertained though, have a look at the following links below. There are lots of topics for you to choose from and work independently on an area of your own interest. Let me know if you get stuck into any new learning or find a topic of particular interest.
Don’t forget to get your entries in for the Year 6 bake off competition! I have had lots of emails full of delicious looking cakes over the weekend… Remember, you have until Thursday 14th May at 11am to enter if you would like to. Winners will be announced next Monday (18th May).
