YEAR 6 ALGEBRA: MONDAY AND TUESDAY

Algebra can be used to solve a wide range of different types of problem. Some are clearly presented in an algebraic form; for example, as an expression, formula or equation. With others, it is not immediately obviously that algebra can be used to solve the problem. Seeing as you missed out on that excitement- let's take a look at how algebra appears in SAT style questions! Each paper takes a different part of the algebra topic for its questions.

WRITING

Dangle 

This week's English is based on this short animation. DON'T watch the whole animation straight way. Just watch up to the time limit given each day.

Please type your writing strainght onto the blog page WRITTEN IN STONE EDUBLOG each day, or write it then send it to me using Seesaw.

The video can also be found here, scroll down to find it CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK TO THE LITERACY SHED

DAILY TASKS

MONDAY: Watch the film Dangle up to 1:45 
As the film begins we see a desolate, industrial landscape. We then see a man, hands on his pockets, walking through the snow. Where is he going? How is he feeling? What does he notice? What decision does he have to make? What would you do? You will notice that there is no speech in this film so far. Today's task is to write a voice-over for the first 1 min 45 seconds of the film. Imagine you are the narrator for this clip being watched on TV. Try to include precise descriptions of the setting, explanation of the action alongside reflection on what thoughts might be going through ther mind of the man.


TUESDAY: Watch to 2:45 then on to the end 
STOP AT 2:45 ASK YOURSELF: What does the man decide to do? What are the consequences? What might be going through his head? Do you think he is compelled to do something inparticular? NOW WATCH TO THE END. Today's task is to write the story of this event. You may wish to begin back when the man is walking across the snowy landscape or begin at the point he spots the rope. Will you narrate the event from a neutral position or may be in 1st person, from the perspective of the man? Don't include any spoilers- don't let your readers know what he does until he does it or  what the consequence are too soon. Show not tell... 

WEDNESDAY: Rewatch the complete film
Today you can chose the type of writing you do, based on this peculiar event. You could write the event up as a newspaper report; describing what happened. (will the journalist know why the lights went on and off?) OR You might prefer to write from the perspective of the man- write his journal for the day that his actions/choices had consequences for the whole world. Or maybe write about what happened next - will the lights ever come back on? If so, how?

THURSDAY: We are working from the writing booklet One Chance, attached below, again for the next 2 days. Turn to page 7 and read or listen (following the link given) to the story One Chance. Stop as instructed in the booklet and complete the tasks. There is a prediction to write, some definitions to complete (talk these through rather than write) then a reflection task to complete on p14-15.

FRIDAY: Use the One Chance booklet. Warm up your writing skills using the "Creating a mood with a sentence of 3" tasks p18-19. Read through the next activities to remind youself of these writing skills. Your main task today is to work on your own wishing story. p22-23 talk you through how to plan the complete story- which might be helpful, but your task is to write the opening and build up paragaphs of this story. Use the planning sheet on p23 to help - opening with your character in a safe setting, wishing about a fortune or change; then an object arrives, which is too good to be true, a promise or a wish.
