Good Morning lovely Year 6. Happy Monday! We hope you have had a lovely weekend and you and your family have enjoyed some well deserved time off from working so hard and are refreshed and ready for a brand new week of learning.
However, if you are struggling to keep your focus, don't worry we have just the thing for you. Click on the link below and give the activity a go. It only takes a few minutes and may be just what you need. It certainly helped us this morning.
Read, Read, Read, everyday!
ReadingEggspress Activity - login to Reading Eggspress and your activity will be ready for you to start. This needs to be completed between the 18th and the 25th January.
You can read any book; however, you may like to read:
This week in SPaG we are going to be learning about 'Model Verbs' and how to use them accurately within our writing.
Model verbs are verbs that indicate likelihood, ability, permission or obligation.
Words like: can/could, may/might, will/would, shall/should and must.
Watch the BBC Bitesize clips and then you should complete the activities. See how I have used a model verb there to indicate the expectation . Clever isn't it!
Computing This Term!
Who fancies earning BIG MONEY when they are older? Well apparently the money is going to be in coding! Anyone with coding skills is going to be in big demand. So let's get going with the Coding!
Using the Espresso / Discovery website you can still complete the coding unit we would have been doing in school. Click on the link below and login (student4890 royal4)
Over the next few weeks, try to complete the Level 6 unit.
You have to click on Block coding and Learn to see all the levels.
In Level 6, complete the refresher first, then the complex variables and then the 'Object Properties' sections. There are video guides to help you so if at any point you get stuck or forget, have another look at the refresher section.
If you complete all this then why not try applying your skills to the Hour of Code and earn yourself some certificates for coding skills. All you have to do is go on to the website and click on 'Try It'. You will have lot's of fun whilst learning!
Having friends is so important for all of us. Our friends are there for us, listen when we need someone to talk to and are honest when they give advise. What do you think makes a good friend?
Start by making a list of all the things that make a good friend (e.g. helpful, kind)
Find a recipe for a cake - try BBC Good Food online or a recipe book if you have one.
Write a recipe for friendship, using recipe-writing language, e.g. 200g of kindness, 100g of thoughtfulness, two tablespoons of humour - you get the idea!
You could draw a picture of a cake and write the recipe on top of it, or each layer of your cake could be a different ingredient - bottom layer - 200g of kindness, next layer, 100g of thoughtfulness etc.
If you don't like the idea of creating a 'Good Friend' cake, click on the link below and you can complete the activity sheet, 'What makes a good friend?' You can choose which one you would like to do. Miss Bailey loves cake though .
We all know how important it is to keep moving and exercise regularly. We know how hard that is at the moment but we don't want you to stop moving for too long so here is a list of websites you can use to get your heart pumping, your body moving and your brain working. You don't have to do them all every day; you only have to choose one.
Don't forget Joe Wick on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Please send us some pictures of how you are keeping active at home - you could be riding your bike, hula hooping, jumping on the trampoline or simply doing something from one of the web links below. Whatever it is you are doing, we would love to see it.
