Good morning Year 6 – we have made it to Friday and we have completed 6 weeks of remote learning!
Firstly, I would like to say you have done a fantastic job this half term and worked incredibly hard. You should all feel very proud of yourselves!
We look forward to seeing you all on Zoom at 9:05am.
Today there will also be a Zoom session at 11am. This will be a drop-in session for you to come to if you have found any of this week’s work difficult. You can come at any time between 11 and 11:30 and either Miss Kinsella or Mrs Maruzza will be there to talk you through any work that you need help with. Make sure you bring the work with you and a pen or a piece of paper.

Writing (40 minutes)
Today, I would like you to use the skills that you learnt yesterday to write a set of instructions about a topic of your own choice.
You could write instructions about:
- How to make a cake
- How to play your favourite game
- How to look after a pet
- How to ride a bike
- Something of your own choice.
Things to think about:
- Does it have a clear heading?
- Does it include a list of things that will be needed?
- Are there clear, easy to understand steps?
- Do your steps start with imperative verbs?
- Are there any helpful hints?
- Would someone who has never done your activity before, be able to pick up your instructions and be successful?
We look forward to seeing all your different instructions (and maybe even trying some out).
Maths (1 hour)
Here are today’s Rapid Reasoning questions:
For today’s work, you will be applying all of the skills that you have learnt this week to reasoning problems. As always, I will give you the question and (when necessary) a hint or explanation that will help you answer it.
Hint: Think back to what we do when a number is right next to a letter.
Hint: Remember to use the information that you have. The same shape will be worth the same amount.
Hint: Remember that when a number is next to a letter we multiply. Both clues are for the same N. Find all of the possibilities.
Hint: Remember that a will equal the same in both calculations. The = sign in the middle means that both sides need to have the same answer. Find the first side and you will be able to find the other.
Hint: Think back to when I started from the calculation and then slowly removed everything that I didn’t know.
Hint: Use the information you know. It might help to write on the shapes.
Hint: For the first question you have all of the information that you need. For the second question you need to work backwards using the inverse operation.
Hint: Find all of the possibilities and use the clues to help you.
Hint: Use all of the information that you know and trial and error to work out the answers.
Hint: For this question t will have the same value. Use trial and error to work it out.
Independent Reading (20 minutes)
Spend some time lost in a good book. Why not get yourself a snack to enjoy whilst you read.
Art (1 hour)
As today is our last day on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, I would like you to create a piece of art work that shows A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
You can create it however you want e.g.
- Drawing etc
Here are some ideas of what you could do:
- A setting comparison of Athens and the forest
- All of the characters
- A scene from the play performed at Hippolyta and Theseus’s wedding
- Something else of your own choice.
Make sure you send us a picture as we would like to make a display.
Quiz (30 minutes)
Join us live at 2:30pm for an end of half term quiz.
Make sure you bring a drink, a snack, some paper and a pen or pencil with you.
The quiz will have different rounds based on different topics i.e. a Harry Potter round and there will be prizes available!
