The code for SPAG and reading on LBQ this morning is:
A picture to inspire you today Year 6. It's called 'By the Shore':
A man stood alone by the shore. There was something different about the wind that day…
Read the story starter above, and then have a go at these questions - thinking carefully about the picture.
Why is the man all alone?
Who is he?
Is he a real person?
What do you think is happening in the picture?
Is it real, or part of his imagination?
Why has the artist chosen to use darker colours in this picture do you think?
What questions would you ask the man if you were beside him?
Can you write a paragraph describing the movement of the leaves as they are blown from the tree?
Focus on using interesting verbs, adjectives and adverbs.
E.g. As the harsh wind blew, crisp, black leaves danced from their branches, leaping gracefully through the air like tiny dancers before finding their resting place on the ground below.
Some thinking about rules today - rules for what happens with calculations. We're getting ready to think about algebra this week - one of my favourite topics in Maths. Even if you find it tricky - see if you can use some of your 'bouncebackability' to persevere. Watch the video and then have a go at the questions.
After learning about 'bouncebackability' last lesson, I hope you are all starting to believe in the fact that you are all amazing young people who have the capacity to be awesome and resilient when you make the transition to secondary school.
Today we shall be thinking about what 'normal' means. Sometimes we can all feel like we are different, or like we stand out in a way that makes us uncomfortable. Today's lesson is about learning to explore who we are inside and be content and proud of who we are. Work your way through the PowerPoint, and then have a go at the activities in the workbook.
