Wednesday 13th April 2020
Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you are all well and that you enjoyed the reading silly SATs paper yesterday! Did anyone manage to get their families to ask why they were making train noises?! Chooo chooo!!!
Today’s silly SATs test is arithmetic. For this, I have put 15 arithmetic questions up on the school gates (see the images below) and they will remain up until Sunday evening. Your task to complete this silly SATs test is to go and visit them during a daily walk over the next few days, taking a piece of paper and something to write with with you and find the answers. Please be careful in sticking to social distancing rules whilst doing so. I really would not want lots of you to be there at the same time, which is why I will keep the questions up until Sunday evening. If you get to the gates and there is someone else already there, you should be able to manage as the questions are spaced out and can be completed in any order. If there are already two people there though, please either wait your turn or return at a later time to complete them. Let me know how you get on! I will share the answers on Monday morning to give everyone chance to complete them before doing so.
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Maths: divide fractions by integers
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.
When you have finished that, use the link below to find today’s lesson on dividing fractions by whole numbers (integers). Remember the rules for this: if the numerator can be divided by the integer, just do that as normal and keep the denominator the same! Watch the videos and then solve the questions on the pdf worksheets. The answers are provided for you to self-mark when you have completed the tasks.
English: writing a debate argument
Today’s English task involves you learning to write a strong argument. Work through the activities by clicking on the link below.
Well-being: watch a movie!
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 watch a movie. Don’t try and do it while doing anything else – get completely lost in the story and let your mind escape from reality!
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 that entries for the Year 6 Bake Off competition must be in by 11am tomorrow morning if you would like to participate. I wish I could taste a slice of all of the yummy cakes that have come in so far!
