Good morning Class Four,
I hope you had a good day yesterday and enjoyed reading the animal poems and planning your own. I wonder which poem is your favourite? I like the beautiful imagery in the dolphin one, such lovely description and I can really imagine the dolphins dancing and the water glimmering as they move. I also like the cat one, but for a very different reason - I can just imagine my cat doing nearly all those things so it made me laugh! I hope you enjoying writing yours today.
Mrs Soley very kindly ordered me (and her!) a Joe Wicks PE t-shirt each. She ordered them ages ago, but they finally arrived at the weekend so obviously we had to try them out straight away yesterday! It fits and I can stretch and exercise it (as can be seen from the photo!!!) so all is good.
Have a lovely day today, keep working hard and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Love Miss Olver x
It’s Tuesday today, which means Times Tables test day! All of the times tables tests and grids are available on the Maths Help section on the Class Four website. Go on there and find the one you need to work through today. Give yourself 5 minutes to complete the test. All the answers are also in the Maths Help section so you can mark it yourself once you are finished.
Today you are going to be starting a new unit of Maths learning on line graphs. The video is still provided by the White Rose but is on a new website, so make sure you click on the link below rather than going on the normal White Rose page (this is because we have already covered the rest of the learning currently up on this webpage). Today's lesson is called 'Read and Interpret Line Graphs'. Watch the video and then work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work.
Today you are going to be continuing with your work on algebra. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 6 website and find Summer Term Week 8, Lesson 1 which is called ‘Solve two-step equations’. Watch the video and then work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work. I have also attached a document showing my workings for questions 7 and 8 in case you want to see how I worked them out.
Today you are going to be writing a draft version of your animal poem. Writing a poem is a bit different to writing other text types as often you want to move things around and change your ideas. You might find it useful to write your poem on a scrap piece of paper and then you can cut your lines up and move them around until you are happy with the order they are in.
Tomorrow you can check you are happy with your poem and then write it up in neat - it should just be in draft form today.
One thing to be really careful of when writing a poem, is that it does not turn into a story. The lines are generally shorter with a piece of punctuation at the end of each one (a comma if you haven't finished your idea, a full stop if it's the end of your idea).
If you are a bit stuck for ideas, remember that you can go back onto yesterday's webpage and look through the animal poems there to inspire you.
This afternoon you have a lovely Art session which Mrs Soley has planned for you based on your RE work from yesterday. Enjoy
Spellings and Reading
Make sure you practise your spellings at some point today ready for your test on Friday and do some independent reading of your choice.
