This week we are going to continue to practise our Year 6 spellings. Keep working on them every day this week ready for your spelling test on Friday.
Pattern: words with the long /e/ sound spelt ie or ei after c (with exceptions)
Starter- Mental arithmetic- Set yourself a timer for 10 minutes and try to complete as many questions as you can. Try to use the methods that we have been learning about in class.
Main Activity- Work through the following PowerPoint, I have included voice notes on some of the slides to explain the task to you.
- What the perimeter is
- How we find the perimeter
- What method of working we can use for more complex shapes
- What skills are needed to answer the question
Plenary- Try the perimeter explorer game and apply what you have learnt.
Starter- Last week you started using the natural curriculum website to help you develop your knowledge of Y6 grammar and you are demonstrating you know how to use it when completing the whiteboard tasks. By the end of this week, you will be writing a piece of writing trying to incorporate as many aspects that you have learnt about.
Today, I would like you to follow the link below to access work on how to include commas to clarify meaning. You will also be learning about the Namaqua Chameleon. Remember to watch the video before completing the tabs marked the grammar bit and whiteboard challenges. If you would like to challenge yourself further you can continue with the writing ideas. I am looking forward to seeing the work that you produce.
Main Activity- Look at the picture of our new class book. Set yourself a timer for 5 minutes and write down as many words or phrases to describe the front cover as you can.
- What era do you think the book is set in?
- What genre of book do you think it is?
Listen to the video clip below of me reading the preface 'Tell me your story, Jim'. Then look at the typed up copy and around it make notes on the following things:
- What does this tell us about Jim?
- Who do we think this is?
- What predictions can you make from this?
- What do you imagine is going to happen?
For these questions you might need to apply your inferential skills (reading between the lines).
This week you are going to be continuing your work on your theme park. If you want to make any adjustments to last weeks work that isn't a problem.
Today you are going to be creating a spreadsheet to calculate how much the visitors in your park will be spending. The document below has a full list of instructions.
Today you are going to be learning about social injustice and understand what Christians choose to fight against it. Look at the PowerPoint below.
