Tuesday 23rd February

For all resources detailed below, please see class one drive. 

Good morning Year 6,

It was so fantastic to see you all yesterday! I hope that your week has started well.  We made a great start to our learning yesterday and the measuring quiz was very interesting! How did you get on? Here’s a question for you – which is lighter? A pound of feathers or a pound of bricks? Answer later!

Here is our timetable for today –

Early Work - please complete one of the mental maths tests from your learning pack. If you have finished these, please find the Geometry booklet from your learning pack and do this. (Test B Geometry properties of shapes/Position and direction) I have also put booklet on the one drive if you cannot find it.  

Maths - L.O. I can convert metric measures. We will mark yesterday’s quiz first. Then please complete the maths sheets with video if needed - click here. If you have time before the end of the lesson, you can either work on the converting metric measures worksheets for speed practice, or work from the orange text book pages 69 and 70. The answers are available on the one drive.

In English, we are going to start working on writing a non-chronological report. Our first task will be to identify the main features of a non-chronological report. Please complete the Amphibian Report sheets pages 1 and 2 during this session. this is the link for National Geographic Kids for the second part of the work.  

Please spend some time after lunch working on your Special Mission if you need to. 

Our Art lesson this afternoon applies the concepts of tone and shade to observational drawing. You will need some coloured pencils and your art pencils for this session. We will collaborate by doing the first task together during our Teams call. You will need to find three objects to draw for this session. Please try to find some interesting shapes, some with light reflecting surfaces. Can you find three objects of different heights and sizes which all have something in common? An example might be a water pot, a paintbrush and a tube of paint.

There is also an art video if you would like to watch before the lesson. 

Have a lovely day!
