# Friday 1st May – Year 6

Writing:

Think back to the work you completed last week on how birthdays are celebrated across the world. I want you to plan and write a balanced argument to answer the following question:

Should birthdays be celebrated?

You can base this on the current issues we are having this year or on birthdays generally.

– The cost. Can everyone afford these celebrations?

– It reminds people of their age.

– It brings people joy.

– It puts pressure on parents.

– In some cultures, birthday are not celebrated at all. Why.

Remember that the majority of your balanced argument should be in 3rd person. I shouldn’t know you opinion until the conclusion.

Maths:

Today I would like to complete your own maths scavenger hunt around your house and in your garden. You could even complete it on your daily walk along as long as you are sensible.

I would like you to find maths in real life. Can you find things that represent different shapes or numbers, what about angles or units of measure i.e. a tin of soup is a cylinder, a leaf might show the number 3 with how many points it has.

Have fun with this and see how many different examples you can find. Why not get your whole family involved and turn it into a challenge or a competition.

Let me know what you have found.

Spanish:

¡Bienvenido a tu primera clase de español!

Welcome to your first Spanish class! By the way the upside down exclamation mark and the lack of capital letter on español are correct but we will come to that in time.

Today we are going to look at some basic greetings.

Here is a song that I hate, which obviously means you lot will love it!

I suggest watching it a few times so that you are able to remember the different greetings.

As an extra task, research how many countries have Spanish as their first language – you might be surprised.

Hi,
That song I quite annoying (I do agree with you miss) so instead of watching it I downloaded an app called douling and it it really good; at first it gives you multiple choices of languages but I’ve learnt more from the app than the from the video and one quick question how do you say apple in Spanish I know the answer but do anyone else?
