Good morning Year 6. How are you all this morning? I hope that you found the music we listened to yesterday interesting - we certainly had some good discussions in the classroom.
Here's the timetable for today:
Today's lesson has a reading focus - and we will be looking at an extract from 'The London Eye Mystery'.
In this book, Ted and Kat’s cousin Salim steps into a pod on the London Eye, and disappears. Now Ted and Kat must follow a trail of clues across London, racing against time...
You will need to click on the link to look at the BBC Bitesize lesson. There are 2 videos to watch of extracts of the book being read for you to listen to, and then 3 activities to complete.
- Activity 1 - read the extract and answer the questions using your retrieval, inference and explanation skills.
- Activity 2 - read the extract and use your summarising and prediction skills to answer the questions
- Activity 3 - learn a bit more about idioms. Have a go at the quiz and then see if you can find some more by doing some research
Write today's short date (02/03) in your book and have a go at today's arithmetic questions:
If you were feeling really confident with finding these percentages today, then have a go at the extension sheet below. You will need to think about how to increase and reduce amounts of money by finding percentages.
For example - if you are trying to find what you would pay if something costs £30 and is reduced by 10%, you need to find 10% of £30 and then subtract that from £30.
Log on to LBQ and have a go at the comprehension exercises. Today's code is:
Afternoon lesson - RE
Christians are called to care for others, especially for those most in need. Jesus explains this very clearly in a parable he told. A parable is a story which conveys an important meaning or more than one meaning. In this story from Luke’s Gospel, a lawyer was trying to catch Jesus out with questions. The final one was, ‘Who is my neighbour?’ Jesus answers this with a story, but the story also has another meaning. It shows the care and compassion with which we should treat each other. Notice the care and concern the Samaritan showed to the man who had been mugged.
Read the story from the Gospel here:
Choose at least 3 questions to answer in your book using full sentences:
Q Why do you think the Samaritan acted as he did?
Q How do you think the man who was mugged felt?
Q What showed that the Samaritan was doing more than his mere duty towards another person?
Q What does this parable have to say to us today?
Q What do you think ‘mercy’ means?
Q Good deeds are often called ‘acts of mercy’. Why do you think that is?
Q Why are these acts of mercy a particular responsibility for the Christian?
You are going to create a storyboard of this parable. Divide your page into 6 or 8 boxes like this:
- Include the reasons why the Samaritan acted as he did and what effect it had on the man who was mugged.
