It's FRIDAY everybody! We made it!
Week One of on-line learning is almost at an end and I think it is safe to say that Year 6 have smashed it!! Well done everybody for working hard this week. Make sure you engage with all the tasks to keep up with your learning. (Education City is down again this afternoon but will be on-line again tomorrow). Hopefully you have kept up with your reading books as well and maybe even wrote some diary entries. How about helping out your families this weekend by tidying your bedroom! Keep safe everyone!
Mrs Jones and Mrs Baird
Below are your tasks for today. Remember if you need to ask any questions go to the class blog and add a comment to 27-3-20 TODAY'S WORK. Keep checking the comments on this BLOG because that is where we will post our replies to you. Read the comments already posted, you may find that your question has already been answered.
Last session of the week for Joe Wick's. Think we will miss him over the weekend!
LO: To use grammar and punctuation rules
Complete a test from your Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling 10 minute test BOOK ONE. (It's purple coloured). Do this one: Set B, Test 1 page 21. When you have finished, mark your work and blog the answer out of 12 so I can see how you are doing.
LO: To use effective vocabulary
Using the wonderful vocabulary and fantastic similies and metaphors you created, write a paragraph (6 - 8 sentences) to describe the beautiful Shaharazade. Look inside the English folder for an idea to start you off. You can write this in you red ruled exercise book and send a photo of it or just write it as a comment on today's blog.
Finally check in the English folder to see what happened to Shaharazade at the end of Chapter 1.
L.O To develop fluency of arithmetic skills.
Friday is going to be our arithmetic day from now on. We will either do work from your Arithmetic Book or an Arithmetic Test like we used to do for homework. You all know how to do this.
Today it is an Arithmetic Test. You have got 37 questions. I would like you to do this work in your squared maths book and show your working out. The questions are in the MATHS FOLDER on the Y6 Class Page. On the final page of the document you will find the answers. Once you have finished the test, ask an adult to mark it and then BLOG me your score. Please do not look at the answers until you have finished. Remember: Place Value, BODMAS, fractions, long division (D,M, S bring down), long multiplication will all be on.
L.O Jesus said 'Love One Another'
Task - Write 4 sentences on the BLOG about your class friends.
I want you to think about the special qualities of everyone in Year 6. Their fabulous personalities and amazing talents.
Choose 4 people from our class and on the class BLOG write a sentence about each one of them telling me how great they are. Remember, no one will ever know what you have written apart from me. Don't message your friends and tell them what you have written, it's going to be a surprise. I will then choose the best comment about each child. Here's an example to help you:
Mrs Jones - Mrs Jones is a brilliant violinist and great musician. She is really organised and will help us with anything. She is always calm and nobody teaches SPAG as well as she does.
Mrs Bones- Although Mr Bones is a quiet member of Year 6, our class would not be the same without him. He is never rude to the teachers and always does as he is told. He has an amazing sense of style and his performances in our assemblies have been outstanding.
Think about what's great about your friends. Think about all those words you used when you were writing your recipe for friendship in class. KIND, CARING, COMPASSIONATE, TRUSTWORTHY, FUNNY, TALENTED, LOVING. Make sure your sentences are Year 6 standard. I don't want 120 comments that say: 'She is funny' or 'He is good at football'. Make them unique and interesting.
LO: To create a rainbow
Lots of houses around my local area and up and down the country have rainbow pictures in their front windows. These have been made and put there to cheer passers-by up in these difficult times. You can draw, paint, colour, make or build your rainbow any size you wish to display in your own front window. Take a photo of it and email it to me and I will put them on the class page for you all to see to cheer ourselves as well as everybody else up! Year6J_Home@st-john.lancs.sch.uk
