We have been 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 use modal verbs. You will also be learning about the Asian elephant. 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.



If you haven't already listened to chapter 3 use the link below:


- Who are Rosie and Judd?

- What importance do they have in the chapter?

- Compared to the other chapter titles, does the title of chapter 3 summarise what is going to happen in the chapter?


Today we are going to be focusing on chapter 4 'The Workhouse'. Have a think about what the workhouse could be?



Listen to the first part of the chapter here: 


- What impression has the author Berlie Doherty given us of the workhouse so far?


Write a list of adjectives and descriptive sentences to describe the workhouse. 


Once you have completed the above task finish listening to the rest of chapter 4 here:


Task: Annotate the picture below of the Victorian workhouse and label what you can see and how it makes you feel. Try and focus on Jim and think about the things that he might be missing when he is at the workhouse. 



Todays mental arithmetic questions are below. Remember to set yourself a timer of 10 minutes and see how many you can complete in that time.

This week in Maths we are learning to convert fractions to decimals and percentages. By the end of the week you will understand how to convert fractions and will be able to show equivalence between a fraction and a percentage or decimal.
