Tuesday 9th June 2020
Good morning Year 6! I hope you are all ok and that you enjoyed your first day back to home learning yesterday. I was so busy at school with Mrs Djennati yesterday; we have been preparing the classrooms, making you all individual packs of equipment and planning the work we will be doing in school over the next few weeks.
We were really looking forward to welcoming you back to school from tomorrow (if you were coming back), but I have just found out this morning that your return date will be delayed now until next Wednesday (17th June). It’s such a difficult time at the moment with lots of new information coming through to keep us all safe. I know it is hard enough that things aren’t normal, without having arrangements keep changing, but unfortunately this was beyond our control as a school, and we need to follow the guidance given to ensure safety for all. I am disappointed not to be back in school with some of you this week, but if it will keep us safe then I am happy to wait that little bit longer…
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Maths: forming algebraic expressions
Continue to spend about 10 minutes 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 algebra lesson on forming expressions and understanding algebraic conventions (it sounds far more complicated than it is!!). Work through the activities and then complete the worksheets. Answers are provided for you to self-mark once you have finished.
English: using direct and indirect speech
Follow the link below for today’s English lesson on direct and indirect (reported) speech. Work through the activities and worksheet and mark your work with the answers provided.
Well-being: how do people see me and what do they think?
To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, complete the sheets (of do a different version of this in your home learning book/notebook) and think about how people see you and what wonderful qualities make you you. Ask a parent if they agree with your thoughts - they might have some ideas you have forgotten about or not thought of!
Your topic tasks for this week…
Continue to work on the Viking and Anglo Saxon Chilli Challenges from before the two week break for half term. You could also further your learning with the BBC Bitesize links I have posted below the chilli challenge activities for information on Vikings and Anglo Saxons.
Stay safe and stay at home as much as you can.
