Good morning Year 6. I hope you all enjoyed the sunshine yesterday. Mrs Gillard told me that apparently it was 'Blue Monday' - but we had lots of fun in the classroom listening to Carole King. I hope you all did too.

In today's lesson you will be focusing on how we can use verbs and adverbs to bring our descriptive writing to life! We'll even look at how we can use verbs and adverbs to describe objects.
Watch the video - and follow the instructions the teacher gives you. Pause the video to do the activities and then complete the independent work at the end of the lesson.
Write today's short date (19/01) in your home learning book and have a go at these arithmetic questions:
Today, Year 6 we are not going to be using the White Rose video.....duh duh duh!
Instead - I have a little rap for you to listen to (I know how much you all love my songs and raps). It's to follow up on what we learned about yesterday - dividing fractions. You will be learning how to use a quick method to calculate easily, called the KFC method. Watch the video, and then look at the diagrams underneath.
Once you think you've got the hang of using this method, have a go at these fluency questions in your learning books:
Once you have completed the fluency questions, log on to LBQ and have a go at Task 3 - Divide Proper Fractions by Whole Numbers.
Remember, you need to make the whole numbers (integers) fractions first by putting them over 1 - like in the example on the left.
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 - RE
Today we will be thinking about Paul and the message he gave to Christians living in Rome. Have a look at the video about Paul's letter to the Romans below, and then work your way through the information on the PowerPoint. Your task today is an artistic one: designing a stained glass window to celebrate the words of Paul.
Your stained glass window can use a template - like the one at the end of the powerpoint, or you can design your own. You could choose to do a design which shows the big idea of Paul's words, or use symbols in the individual parts of the stained glass. Have a look at these examples where children have drawn small pictures of the things which make them both unique, and part of the family of God:
