We made it to Friday! Well done everyone - week 1 is done and dusted! Well done to everyone who has sent me their work over the last few days. Please remember that you need to take a picture of your work and email it to me so that I know you are getting on with your home learning each day.
I hope you all have fantastic weekends Year 6 - I'll see you all bright and early on Monday morning for week 2.

Today we are going to have a go using the sequenced planning we did yesterday to write our instructions. Have a look at this to remind you of the features we are expecting to see in high quality instructional writing:
Your instructions for how to catch a monster need:
Have a look at the example of a successful instructional text for How to build a snowman and dog.
Think about what makes it successful:
- is it clearly written?
-is it concise? (no waffling!)
-would it be easy to follow?
Your task today is to be a magpie and use the successful features of this text to write your version of HOW TO CATCH A MONSTER.
Remember to keep referring back to the language features I'm expecting to see from the slide above, and remember also the BASICS OF YOUR EXCELLENT YEAR 6 WRITING:
- Punctuation (full stops, commas, colon to introduce a list, semi colons, brackets, hypens, dashes)
- Capital letters for proper nouns and starting sentences
- Varied sentence structures
and lastly Year 6...... something I am always reminding you....
PLEASE read it through to check it makes sense!
Write the short date (08/01/21) in your home learning book. Then have a go at this arithmetic:
Watch the White Rose video on adding fractions. You can pause it as you are watching to have a go at joining in with the activities. When you get to the end, have a go at the work in your home learning book. You will need to have the worksheet open on a device in front of you and then do your working out and answering in the book. Once you have completed the task, you can use the answer sheet to mark your work before an adult emails me a picture of it. Good luck - and remember to email me if you have any questions.
Log on to LBQ and have a go at the comprehension exercise. The code today is:
Remember to use your full name (including surname) and your own chosen passcode to log in.
Afternoon lesson - PE
This afternoon's lesson is PE. Normally you would be at school doing your PE lesson with DSC, so Danny has recorded you a PE challenge to have a go at. See how many you can do and email me your results. Good luck!
Home PE Challenge
If your PE doesn't take you very long - you can log on to either edshed or TTRS and play some games. I will be emailing mums and dads all your usernames and passwords this morning, so you should be able to log on easily. Let me know if you have any problems.
