Today's code for SPAG and reading on LBQ is:
Today is a finishing off day, Year 6. Yesterday you wrote your first draft of your report about the rare and undiscovered creature you created. Today, your task is to re-read and edit your work and then publish it - either as a mini-book, or using your own design.
When you re-read your work, remember to check for the following things:
- Do all your sentences make sense? If not - make changes so that the writing flows.
- Have you remembered to use paragraphs?
- Have you remembered to use punctuation effectively - inclusing the basics (full stops, commas, question marks) and higher level punctuation (brackets, colons, semi colons, dashes)?
- Have you looked carefully at your spellings? Chcek any you are unsure of using a dictionary.
- Have you used the best language possible to make it interesting to read?
Once you have checked and edited your work, I'd love to see some of the animals you created. You can email photos to me, or post them on the class blog. Good luck.
Today is problem solving day! No video today - instead, have a go at solving these problems. You can get people at home to help you :) Once you get past question 6, the problems get more challenging. I wonder how far you can get....
Last Science activity of the week from the Jamboree Year 6. If you've enjoyed them, remember - there are lots of others on the website that you can have a go at over the weekend. Most of them need very few resources - other than things you're likely to have at home already. Take lots of photos - we'd love to see them. You can find them all here:
Today's challenge is called 'Kite Calamity'. Have a look at the picture on the left: You will be designing a kite which will fly properly - using a small model to test your ideas first.
• Cover material e.g. sheets of paper, tissue, card and light plastic (such as a carrier bag)
• Tail – long strips of tissue, plastic or similar
• Foil – to make bows to add weight to the tail
• Struts – cocktail sticks • Flying line – 2 metre lengths of strong cotton thread, string or fishing line • Scissors
• Glue sticks and sellotape for each group
• Electric fan (optional) or hairdryer if operated by an adult (PAT tested)
• A longer length of strong cotton thread if you want to test how high the kites will fly outside (optional)
