It's the middle of the week, Wednesday!
Good morning Year 6 and welcome to your learning for today. Yesterday's work was quite magnificent with lots of you blogging and emailing excellent work. Not being able to sample your baking was absolute TORTURE! Make sure you keep exercising, learning your times tables AND completing your reading diary. I will be asking you to update me on what you have read, tomorrow so be ready for that. Get involved, enjoy and let's see what today holds in store for you...
Below are your tasks for today. Remember if you need to ask any questions go to the class blog and add a comment to 8-4-20 TODAY'S WORK. Keep checking the comments on this BLOG because that is where we will post our replies to you.

RE- L.O The events of HOLY WEEK
Firstly, I want you to watch a short video on the events of HOLY WEEK. You will find this in the RE FOLDER on the YEAR 6 CLASS PAGE.
When you have watched it I would like you to look at the slide show underneath the video. It has 14 pictures on it, each picture shows an event that happened in HOLY WEEK. In your exercise book, or type straight onto the BLOG, write a sentence or two for each slide. What is happening in each picture? These are the same pictures that we use in the Read Around every year, so this should be easy. Now go to the RE FOLDER. Remember Y6 this is EASTER not CHRISTMAS. Picture 1 is not Mary and Joseph on a donkey.
Words that might help: JERUSALEM, PALMS, JUDAS, CAIAPHAS, GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE, PETER, JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA, SIMON OF CYRENE, CALVARY.

2. After a clause
Because it was cold, I put my coat on.
3. For parenthesis
The ancient tree, tall and proud, towered over the deserted cottage.
Log on to Education City and complete the comma activity called: Let’s Eat Granny.
LO: To recount a story
Imagine you are the poor tailor from Ali Baba and the Forty Bandits. RETELL the story from HIS point of view including descriptions and feelings to make the story exciting. (His story is on slides 9, 10 and 11 of the Ali Baba and the Forty Bandits story). You must write using the descriptive style of the 1001 Arabian Nights stories. There is a PLAN to help you write your recount using the first person (I) saved in the English folder on the Year 6 website page underneath the date folders.
Here is a recount start you could use:
The Fate of the Poor Tailor
As another long and tiring day drew to a close, the setting sun cast long shadows across my stall in the market. The fate that Allah had dealt me was to scratch a living as a poor tailor. Believe me if you can, I would even sew iron to stone if I was asked, in order to earn a coin or two. Wearily, I began to pack away my…
