Good morning everyone - we're nearly there! Here's a picture of a squirrel to keep you all going!
Today's timetable looks like this:
These are suggested times (apart from the Zoom lessons), so fit your learning in when works best for you and your family.
In this lesson, we will start by recapping the layout of biographies by looking at a modelled text about Jane Goodall. Next, we will remind ourselves what we have already written in the previous lesson. Then, we will highlight what needs to be written in this lesson.
After that, we will look at the success criteria again and remind ourselves what we need to include from the previous lesson. The next two paragraphs of the biography will be modelled in the shared write part of the lesson. The final paragraph, which is the conclusion, will be a modelled piece of writing, which we will analyse. Following the shared and modelled writes, we will have the opportunity to write our own paragraph.
I know you're all tired Year 6 - and doing writing at home at the end of term is not easy, but please do try your hardest. I've been so impressed with some of your remote learning - and I'd love to be able to show Mrs Huotari your excellent biographies.
Write today's short date (11/02) in your book and have a go at the following questions:
Today for Maths, I would like you to choose 2 or 3 of these mathematical problems to have a go at solving. They are investigations which you may need to use trial and improvement methods for - so don't give up! Remember to persevere and be resilient.

Reading - LBQ
Log on to LBQ and have a go at the comprehension exercise.
Please only do Task 1 for your reading - tasks 2 and 3 today are Mrs Martin's science tasks - to be done after the zoom lesson this afternoon.
The code today is:
Remember to use your full name (including surname) and your own chosen passcode to log in.
Afternoon lesson - Science
Please check your email for the link to Mrs Martin's Science Zoom session at 1:30pm
L.O. To know contributions Carl Linnaeus made to science.
It is important that we know the scientists whose discoveries and inventions have been vital in contributing to our understanding of the amazing world we live in.
Carl Linnaeus (23 May 1707 – 10 January 1778)
There are millions of species on our planet. Although species can be very different from each other, many have similar features that allow us to put them into groups. This is called classification. This helps scientists to study living organisms – to compare, identify and keep order of living things.
Carl Linnaeus is a scientist famous for his work classifying and grouping plants and animals.
Our Key area of learning this term:
· Living things can be formally grouped according to characteristics. Plants and animals are two main groups but there are other livings things that do not fit into these groups e.g. micro-organisms such as bacteria and yeast, and toadstools and mushrooms.
· Animals can be divided into two main groups: those that have backbones (vertebrates); and those that do not (invertebrates). Vertebrates can be divided into five small groups: fish; amphibians; reptiles; birds; and mammals. Each group has common characteristics. Invertebrates can be divided into a number of groups, including insects, spiders, snails and worms.
Assessment Test – LBQ - please use the same code you used for the reading and complete tasks 2 and 3.
It is important that I assess your learning so I can see how we are all getting on. To do this it is important that you complete the science questions set on LBQ.
It has been a long challenging term and I am extremely proud of you all continuing to grow your science minds. Super Science Stars!
Enjoy the half term break.
