Good morning Year 6!
I hope you all had another good weekend indoors and that you were able to enjoy the sunshine from your gardens if you have one. What a strange Easter holiday this is – you won’t forget this any time soon! I hope you are finding activities to keep you busy at home and that you are able to enjoy time outdoors on a daily walk if you are well. I am feeling fine but it is very strange to be working from home and not being in class with you. Remember though that every new day is one day closer to things going back to normal and we will get through this.
Did you have a go at the Emoji Name the Movie Quiz I posted last Friday? If not, have a go before looking at the answers below! If you did then see how well you have done by checking the link below to see the answers. Hope you enjoyed it!
Again this week, as it should be the Easter holidays now please don’t feel that you have to do the work during these next two weeks. You have all worked so hard during your time in Year 6 and have made excellent progress so I’m sure you need a bit of a rest! I definitely do! However, I have provided more activities for you if you would like to keep busy while you are at home so much. Please keep in touch with us via the school twitter page and show us what you are up to at home, whether it is school/work related or anything else – I would especially love to see any cooking or baking you are doing while you’re at home!
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Firstly, continue to spend about 10 minutes per 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 you have worked so hard to achieve.
We will continue with our work on ratio today and tomorrow. After your times tables, please complete the next ratio lesson which I have linked below. Answers are also provided for you to self-mark once you have finished. If you need any guidance with this lesson, please follow the link below and watch the video that corresponds to today’s lesson (week 2 lesson 1).
Continue to work on your spellings as needed. If you have more to continue learning, then work on those as suggested in previous days whether it is by working on the words on the Year 3/4 list or the Year 5/6 list – the spellings you need to learn will be unique to you. If you have finished learning any spellings you were unsure of then ask a parent or sibling to test you on a random 20 words. Can you spell them all correctly? If you do then well done; if not, work on learning the ones you got wrong over this week.
Remember to make sure you also know the meanings of these words so that you are able to use them in your writing and understand them when reading. If there are any words you are unsure of, please look them up to check their meaning.
Well-being: create an obstacle course
To keep your minds healthy and positive, I will also be providing you with a well-being activity to do daily. For today’s well-being activity, create an obstacle course in your garden and challenge your family members to beat you at completing a lap or two!
Your topic tasks for this week…
I have created another chilli challenge sheet, this time filled with Easter/spring activities for you to complete over the next week or two. I hope it adds some fun to your Easter break.
Keep working on the World War chilli challenges over the Easter break too if you need more time on them. Are you still keeping up with Joe Wicks and Oti Mabuse? Well done if so! Keeping active and healthy will be the best way to fight off the virus.
Have a great day! Remember to stay at home and keep washing your hands.
