MATHS: Daily Lessons

Most of your daily maths lessons this week use tutorials and worksheets from White Rose Home Learning. There is now an easier way to get straight to the tutorial that you need, without having to use the concertina menu on their website and navigate to your lesson-although you can still do this. Click on the embedded video (the picture of the start of the video with the arrow in the middle) for each tutorial, just a little way down this page. The worksheets are all attached underneath the accompanying video. 

There are still all the Fluent in 5 sheets and the times table sheets if you complete the White Rose work quickly. SUMDOG is there too, for some maths and gaming time! 

 

 

THIS WEEK'S YEAR 6 MATHS IS REVISION OF THE WORK WE HAVE COVERED ON FRACTIONS THIS YEAR. YOU SHOULD  BE ABLE TO COVER THIS QUITE QUICKLY- SO THERE ARE 2 SHEETS PER DAY. PLEASE MARK YOUR WORK AND IF THERE ARE ANY AREAS WHICH YOU ARE FINDING TRICKY GO BACK THROUGH THE VIDEO TUTORIAL AND ENSURE YOU UNDERSTAND.

Tues

Chapter 22: Dark Dreams

Mrs Hester really doesn't have many friends so has no one to talk to about what's been happening in her life, so she keeps a journal. She believes that in the future, when the world is hers, other White Witches will want to read about the all powerful Mrs Hester.

Your challenge is to write what you think Mrs Hester may be recording in her journal today. She will have a lot to think about I think!Will she boastful or will she have a bit of concern about the rashness of her actions. What do you think?

Wed

Chapter 23: A Knife in the Back

Old Hans's shop is a trusted place where toshers go to sell the things they find but other people go there to buy all sorts of things - some everyday articles and some items that might be hard to get hold of. To make sure that his shop is always busy with customers he puts up advertising posters all around the Silver Kingdom.

Your challenge today is to create this advertisement. It might be in the form of a poster or it maybe something that pops up on the local radio station, so you could record the advertisement.

Thu

Chapter 24: The Paper Bird 

In this chapter we get some more idea about Shadow Jack. Your challenge is to write a character description of Shadow Jack. What do we now know about him and what he feels about his part in the story so far?

Fri

Chapter 25: The First Rescue

Your challenge is to write in 100 words how Lara escaped but from Lara's point of view - so you will write in the first person as if you were Lara.

Try to create some of the tension and how she must have been feeling - confusion, anger, frustration, taken in, - did she feel helpless I wonder?

RADIOBLOGGING: Listen daily at 9:30-10:30 (or later if you can't listen live) to Pie Corbett and Deputy Mitchell on Radioblogging.net and join in with all the fun things to do.  Each programme starts with a couple of games to have a go at, then they often have a visiting author or poet who reads some of their work and you get the chance to comment on what you hear. There is also the chance for you to work on your best sentences and post them on a post-it on a padlet. The main writing tasks are explained near to the end of the programme; you complete 1 or more of these and post it onto the site for us and other people to read and comment on later. FOR RADIOBLOG CLICK HERE 

100 WORD CHALLENGE: You should also complete the 100 word challenge CLICK HERE FOR 100 WORD CHALLENGE (if you post your writing on edublog we can see it there OR you might prefer to write on paper and use the Seesaw app to send me a photo of your work!)

WRITING PROJECT: For those of you who don't always have use of a computer for the radioblog or those who are looking for new writing ideas, I have again attached a booklet of writing tasks (called THE GAME), where a 'virtual teacher' guides you through tasks. You don't have to do every task, but there are some great ones to try. If you submit them to edublog we can see them, or if you are working on paper, why not photograph your writing and send it to me on Seesaw? (See the tab on how to use Seesaw)

SPELLING: Find this week's lists attached below. Remember that a little practice each day is needed, then test yourself on Friday. You can also do SUMDOG spelling games.
