Good morning Year 6!
It's Monday and the start of our fifth week of online learning in 2021! Everyone at home is trying really hard and we are very proud of you. Watch out for a newsletter from school about logging in to a Year 6 Teams meeting every morning for home learners to catch up with each other and their teacher. This sounds great and fingers crossed it will start on Wednesday this week.
There is a new tab underneath Class Pages on the school website - Taking Care of your Mental Health. Here you will find many activities and lots of advice on how to improve your mood. Click on it and have a read!

Our top readers for Friday were, Theo B, Kainen and Julia. A BIG thank you to these 3 students! Remember to check the Y6 blog post dated 8.1.21 for log in instructions. Aim for 10 - 15 minutes of reading each day. I am letting you pick your own book to read so you can find something you are interested in. Log on and get reading.
Below are your tasks for today. Remember if you need to ask any questions go to the class blog and add a comment to 1-2-21 TODAY'S WORK. Keep checking the comments on this BLOG because that is where we will post our replies to you.
LO: To translate shapes accurately
In today's lesson we are staying on the co-ordinate grid. You have lots of super knowledge of co-ordinates so feel confident! We are going to learn how to TRANSLATE or SLIDE shapes on the co-ordinate grid. There are only 2 ways we can slide the shapes: up and down OR left and right. Click on the clip below to watch how to do this. It seems easy, sliding shapes around, but you MUST follow the steps. TRANSLATE EACH VERTEX (CORNER) OF THE SHAPE - DON'T BE TEMPTED TO GUESS WHERE THEY GO!!
When you have listened to and watched the clip carefully, click to download the powerpoint document. There are 3 worksheets on this document. EVERYONE must complete the first 2 worksheets. You can print them out or complete them in your maths book. If you fancy a challenge, have a go at the last worksheet.
Good luck everyone!
