Wednesday 10th June 2020
Happy Wednesday everyone!
I hope you are all ok and continuing to work at home. This time next week, those of you that are planning to come back will (HOPEFULLY!!!) be back in school with me. I’m very disappointed that it wasn’t today as originally planned, but we must stick to the guidance to stay safe and well.
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Maths: substitute into simple expressions and formulae
Continue to spend about 10 minutes working on your times tables on TTRS or hit the button in order to keep your fluency with them up – you don’t want me beating you at times table games when we are back at school!
When you have finished that, use the link below to find today’s algebra lesson on substituting into simple expressions and formulae. I hope you are enjoying these algebra lessons and that you are understanding it all ok. For this one, remember that if you have a number before a letter (e.g. 2n) it means the number multiplied by the letter (e.g. 2 x n). We discussed this in class before school closed but I thought you might need reminding. Work through the information and then complete the worksheets. The answers are provided for you to self-mark when you have completed the tasks.
Today’s English task is a reminder on using commas correctly in your writing. This is a really important lesson as they are so easy to forget! Work through the exercises and worksheet - the worksheet has three different levels of difficulty. I would recommend you all do the hardest level (3 star version on page 5 of the pdf) because I think you are all capable of the work on that page. The answers are provided for you to mark your work once you have completed it.
Well-being: create a quiz for your family or friends
To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, I would like you to create another quiz – this could be for your family living in your house, or for your extended family and friends via zoom or FaceTime. watch a movie. Maybe you could do a Year 6 quiz and test them on things we have learnt about this year (the Peterloo Massacre we did in the autumn term; arithmetic maths questions; World War 1 and 2; our science topics of electricity, classification of animals, evolution, light and the circulatory system; Vikings and Anglo Saxons to name a few ideas for rounds!). Let me know how you get on and who the winners are!
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.
Have a great day and make sure you spend some time doing things you enjoy. Has anyone found a new hobby during lockdown or learnt something new? I’d love to hear all about it either via email or when we are back in next week.
