L.O Identifying and classifying angles.
Today your activity is on Education City. Log in and go to classwork. It starts with a quick revision, then there are 3 activities.
1. Angle Finder: Classifying angles
2. Atlantic Pirates: Angles on a straight line. Remember they must total 180°
3. Driving Range: Using a protractor to measure angles. Click on the protractor to pick it up and put the circle, in the middle of the protractor, on the cross. Then read the size of the angle. The example shows an obtuse angle between the flag pole and the ball of 110° ACTIVITY 2 & 3 ARE NOT TABLET FRIENDLY SO YOU WILL NEED TO DO THEM ON A LAPTOP OR COMPUTER.
ANSWERS to yesterday's comprehension are in the English folder on the Year 6 website page.
LO: To recognise different sentence types
Click on the link below to listen to this song about different sentence types. Get your air guitar ready (Harris and Chelsea, get your real guitars - I would like to see evidence of this) because there is a guitar solo to play along to!
After your rock-out, get your exercise books or a word document ready.
Write today’s date and LO.
Copy out the definitions of: statement, command, question and exclamation (you will find them about 2 minutes into the song).
Then, choose any example of each sentence type from the song and write those four sentences down with the correct punctuation mark in your book or on the word document. Copy your work to today's blog or email it to me.
LO: To write a definition
Click on the link below and watch the BBC clip below about what an invention is. After you have watched it, write today’s date and LO in your exercise book or on a word document. Then, write your own definition of what an invention is giving examples from the clip. This should be one paragraph long. Copy your work to today's blog or email it to me.
L.O To learn about Lourdes, a place of Christian pilgrimage and miracles.
May is the month of Mary so today's RE lesson is all about Mary. Today I want you to learn about a place called Lourdes. In 1858, in a vision from heaven, Mary appeared to a young girl 18 times. Only the young girl saw the vision and heard her voice.
Every year over 6 million people visit the place where Mary appeared; many people claim to have been cured of illnesses if they go and pray and drink the Holy Water. When people visit a Holy Place it is called a pilgrimage.
Go the the RE folder and read the information then answer the 11 questions.
Optional Task: Draw/paint a picture of Mary in the grotto.
