Hello Year 6! Hope you are all well today and finding plenty to do whilst at home.
I’ve had some lovely updates from Matilda and Abi which have been so wonderful to see and have made my day! If you or your parents would like to, please ask them to send me an email with an update or some photo of you. It would be great to hear from more of you!
I wish we were at school and able to do fun things like make Easter cakes together there, but hopefully we will be able to get back into class before the end of this year – I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we can because teaching is just not the same without a class around!
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Keep working on your times tables on either TTRS or hit the button (or both!) for about 10 minutes per day so that you can maintain your speed and accuracy with them.
To continue our work on angles, after your times tables, please complete the second angles 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 lessons (week 2 lesson 4 and week 2 lesson 5).
English: spellings and grammar
Continue to work on your spellings as needed.
Also, complete the grammar task I have attached below. Copy out the sentences into your home learning book so you can work on your handwriting as well as the grammar revision.
To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, have a go at some or all of the origami instructions I have linked below. They get harder in order, so you may want to begin with the cat and work your way through them! If you enjoy this activity, you could always find some of your own instructions online and have a go at those too. I’d love to see your creations if you could tweet or email a photo!
Your topic tasks for this week…
Have you started working on any of the Easter chilli challenges that I posted on Monday? Abi certainly has! I wish we were in school now so you could bring me in one of those cakes to taste – got to check they taste as good as they look hehe! Your Easter wreath looks amazing too Abi, well done!
I can’t quite believe it is the start of the Easter weekend tomorrow, and I’m sure for those of you who celebrate Easter it will be a very strange one! I usually see all of my family at Easter and won’t be able to, but I am going to FaceTime them instead and we will have a proper celebration once we are allowed to. I hope whatever you are doing this weekend you can enjoy it as best as possible. Hope you get lots of Easter eggs! Remember, if things do seem very different at the moment, it won’t last forever. It feels like a long time but we will soon be back to normal.
I won’t be posting work over the Easter bank holidays but hopefully there are lots of activities on the website already to keep you busy. That's also why I put on extra maths work for today: there are two lessons uploaded for today so you might want to do one lesson today and the next lesson over the extended weekend. Remember too that there are plenty of books available on Oxford Owls and Epic! for you to read if you’d like to.
Have a lovely weekend with your family and I will post again on Tuesday.
Missing you all!
