Good morning Year 6!
Well done on yesterday's work those that blogged and emailed. Big shout out to Dylan for his super maths work and to Izabella for super effort in all subjects. Giuseppe and Miley also produced some excellent work. Apparently, this week is one of the most difficult in the whole year to get motivated so those children mentioned above have done especially well. What learning have you got today? Come on, get your books and pens out and let's get going...
Today's exercise choices:
1. Go outside for a refreshing walk.
2. Click on the link to Go Noodle and complete 3 of your favourite routines.
(We did Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Banana Banana Meatball, and Little Green Froggy 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 19-1-21 TODAY'S WORK. Keep checking the comments on this BLOG because that is where we will post our replies to you.
LO: To plot co-ordinates
In today's lesson you are going to plot co-ordinates in ALL FOUR quadrants and then join them to make polygons (a 2D shape with straight sides). TOP TIP: once you have plotted the first 2 co-ordinates, join them using a ruler. Don't wait until you have plotted all the co-ordinates or you won't remember the correct order to join them.
Click on the You Tube link below which explains how to do this. It is a KS2 maths clip and now you should be familiar with the vocabulary and skills of plotting co-ordinates.
Complete 2 activities from the 3 worksheets below in your maths exercise book. The first document is the easiest one, the second is medium and the last document is a challenge. 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.
Blog or email me this work in the normal way.
Click on the link below to take a Kahoot quiz on Co-ordinates. I will see who has logged in and what your scores are. Write your FIRST NAME ONLY as your nick-name so I know who you are. Good luck!
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 B Test 3 on page 29. Complete the 11 questions. Q11 TOP TIP: to drive is a verb and the drive is a noun.
LO: To use determiners
Your next task is going to build on yesterday's work about determiners. Remember the key rule: Determiners come before a noun eg the boat, his bottle, that table or some chairs. So once you have found the noun (the name of any thing) in the sentence, the word before the noun will be a determiner.
Click on the document below to see your worksheet on determiners. Write today's date and LO in your lined exercise book.
Complete Determiner 1 where you have to copy out the sentence accurately. Then identify and underline the determiner in the sentence.
If you have completed all your English work quite quickly, continue with Determiner 2 where you have to choose the correct determiner from the box to complete the sentence. Write these sentences neatly in your book.
Finally create three sentences of your own to finish the worksheet.
I have included the answers for the determiner tasks so you can check your work after you have finished.
Blog or email these 3 pieces of English work in the normal way.
LO: To write regular French verbs
Hello Year 6
For your lesson today we are going to learn how to use 'er' verbs in the present tense. Below you will find a link to a video which talks you through how to change the ending of the verb based on who is doing the action of the verb.
There is a copy of the poweroint below in case you want to look back at any information.
There is also a very useful page on BBC Bitesize, please have a look at this page and try to complete the 4 quiz questions at the end.
Please don't forget to blog or email pictures of your work !
