Good morning Year 6. I hope you all had a fun snow day yesterday and did lots of exciting things. 


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 off by writing a complex sentence with a relative clause about Charles Darwin. Then we will look at what an introduction is and plan our own introduction for this biographical writing. After that, we will plan the main body of the text and break the main body into four paragraphs: Early Life, School Life, Voyages and Discoveries. For each paragraph, we will refer to notes made from the previous lessons and insert opening sentences and linking sentences. Finally, we will plan a concluding paragraph.


Watch the video - and follow the instructions the teacher gives you. Pause the video to do the activities and  complete the independent work during the lesson. Don't forget to take a picture and email me when you have completed the lesson.

Today's Maths task is an end of block assessment on LBQ. We have come to the end of our work on decimals - so I would like you to have a go at the task called 'Decimals Block Review'. You'll find the code just underneath in the 'Reading' section.


Use your exercise book to do any working out you need to, but please do have a proper go so that I can see what areas we will need to re-visit.


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.
