Good morning Year 6!
Well done on yesterday's work. There were some excellent co-ordinate pictures and super English work on the blog and in emails. However, quite a few children didn't complete the Geography lesson. The third subject is not optional. We really enjoyed the lesson on South America in school so if you have time, catch up with it today as I am sure you will enjoy it. Enjoy your day!
Today's exercise choices:
1. Go outside for a refreshing walk. (Let's hope for better weather).
2. Click on the link to Go Noodle and complete 3 of your favourite routines.
(We did Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Purple Stew and Footloose in school).
3. Have a go at the Bingo Challenge Mr Steele has put on the main Class Page - this looks fun!
I have set you a reading challenge this week on a website called getepic. Look on our Year 6 blog for a post I put on 8.1.21. It tells you how to get on this website and what your log in is. Click on your initials and start reading the short book. Aim for 10 - 15 minutes of reading each day.
I want to see everybody logged on to this website.
Good luck with all your learning! Let's get going with today's 3 activities...
Below are your tasks for today. Remember if you need to ask any questions go to the class blog and add a comment to 12-1-21 TODAY'S WORK. Keep checking the comments on this BLOG because that is where we will post our replies to you.
LO: To read and plot co-ordinates
Today's lesson will build on our co-ordinate work from yesterday. We are going to be reading and plotting in 4 quadrants.
Click on the You Tube link below which explains how to read and plot co-ordinates in 4 quadrants.
Complete 2 activities from the worksheets below in your maths exercise book.
The first document is the easiest one - EVERYONE must do this.
You have a CHOICE for the second activity. The simpler one is to plot and create the SHARK picture. The more challenging plotting is to create the HELICOPTER picture.You will need a ruler to draw a co-ordinate grid using the squares in your maths book or you could print off the sheets to work on. I think you will enjoy this task!
Blog or email me this work in the normal way.

LO: To use grammar skills
Find your KS2 English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling SAT Buster 10-Minute Test Book (It's the purple one). Turn to Set A Test 4 on page 14. Complete the 12 questions.
LO: To use and understand adverbials
Your next tasks are going to build on yesterday's work about adverbials. There are 2 tasks to complete.
Click on the document below to see your first worksheet on sorting adverbials. Write today's date and LO in your lined exercise book. Underneath this, separate your page into 3 columns with your pen and ruler. Label the column headings: How (manner), When (time) and Where (place). Then sort the adverbial phrases into the correct column. There are 18 phrases altogether.
Click on the second worksheet below which concentrates on adverbials of time. Select the appropriate fronted adverbial for each of the 8 sentences. Copy them NEATLY into your exercise book remembering to use a capital letter for the sentence start, a comma after the fronted adverbial and a full stop at the end of your sentence.
Blog or email these 3 pieces of English work in the normal way.
LO: To use research skills
For the lesson today, we would like you to research some of the tourist attractions in Paris, France's capital City.
Go onto the website below and it will bring up a map of the central Paris area. There are several tourist attractions highlighted with a red symbol. If you click on the symbol it will open up a new page and give you lots of information about the attraction.
We would like you to research 4 attractions. As you do your research we would like you to complete a fact-file about each of the 4 attractions. You may complete this in your books or on word/powerpoint. Your fact file should include a picture/drawing of the attraction, and at least 8 facts about each attraction.
Please email or blog pictures of your work - we look forward to reading what you find out!
