Good Morning Lovely Year 6, and welcome to your first day of online learning this year! I'm so sad I only got to see some of you on Monday - so I am sending you all lots of positivity and happy thoughts to help you get through the day!
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.
Morning Zoom session
Afternoon Zoom session
For those of you who were not in school on Monday, we are continuing to explore the story of Frankenstein.
On Monday, we learned that Victor Frankenstein had made a full recovery from becoming ill after the monster he created ran away. After receiving a letter from his sweetheart, Elizabeth, he spent some time in the countryside enjoying the feeling of being re-inspired. He received a letter from his father telling him that his brother William had been killed. Grieving, Frankenstein went to visit the place where his Father found his brother's body and saw......... THE MONSTER.
He suspects that the monster killed his brother in revenge, so he is chasing the monster into the Alps - where he is hiding somewhere on Mont Blanc.
Our writing this week will be focusing on instructional writing. We will be writing instructions for how to catch a monster.
Today, we will be exploring the features of instructions. Have a look at the BBC Bitesize page on writing instructions here:
Work your way through the learning videos and then have a go at the activities. In activity 1, you need to highlight the imperative verbs in an extract of text. In activity 2, you need to find different features of instructions.
Instead of attempting activity 3 on Scott's journey to the South Pole, I would like you to start thinking about how to catch a monster. What kind of a trap could you set up on the mountain to catch him? Draw a diagram of a trap you could set with labels to show how the trap will work.
Write the short date (06/01/21) in your home learning book. Then have a go at this arithmetic:
Watch the White Rose video on adding and subtracting fractions. You can pause it as you are watching to have a go at joining in with the activities. When you get to the end, have a go at the work in your home learning book. You will need to have the worksheet open on a device in fromt of you and then do your working out and answering in the book. Once you have completed the task, you can use the answer sheet to mark your work before an adult emails me a picture of it. Good luck - and remember to email me if you have any questions.
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 are starting to think about our new topic in RE: UNITY.
We will be learning about how the Eucharist enables the Christian family to live and grow in communion every day. To start off with, have a listen to these songs about friendship:
Think about what friendship means and how it is shown in these songs. Choose 4 of these questions to answer using full sentences in your home learning book:
- Why do you think friendships are important?
- What do you think is the most important value in friendship?
- How do you think your beliefs influence your friendships?
- What helps a friendship to flourish?
- What kinds of behaviour will break a friendship?
- Who is affected when a friendship is broken?
- What do you think is the best way to mend broken friendships?
- What kinds of activities have you been involved in which require more than one person?
- What have been the good aspects of that?
- Were there any difficulties? Why did that happen? How was the problem solved?
Design a 'How to' poster for younger children all about being a good friend.
You could explain things like:
- how to make friends
- why having friends is a good thing
- how to stay friends with someone
