At 9am each morning this week, Joe Wicks will be streaming a PE session to keep us all active and moving. It will be a great way to start your day and I am sure your family would love to join in too! If you were having a lie-in, then you will be able to find the session on Joe Wicks' youtube channel and join in at any point!
You can find them here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
Today we are carrying on with Wonder and want you to read pages 234-248 and have a think about the questions below:
1. Miranda and Via used to be good friends. Why did their relationship change? (2 marks)
2. What does Miranda miss about having Via as a friend? (1 mark)
3. Miranda pretends to be sick on opening night. Why do you think she did that? (2 marks)
Hopefully the activities across the week have helped you learn your spelling so time to test yourself, either get a grown up or sibling to help you or use spelling shed to go through them in a random order.
Next week's spellings are below.
Today English is following on from yesterday, you might have some lines put together you might even have a verse or two. Your task is to finish your poem off, remember we are looking for poem that is 4 versus long and follows a pattern or flow of your choice.
Once your poem is done, not forgetting to edit it for spellings, meaning and most importantly effectiveness, you should read it to someone in your household see what they think? Is it an easy poem to read, does it flow how you want it to?
We would love to see or hear them. Send us a video or a picture of your poem by email or twitter.
Mr Bond's attempt is attached below to help you if you need some ideas.
What is the Colour?
Yellow is the warming sun
illuminating the world
Yellow is elegant flowers
knowing summer is here
Blue is the vivid sky
clear, joyous and carefree
Blue is the shimmering ocean
cooling breeze off the water
Today, as we said yesterday, we are going to recap all the things we have covered this week and we have attached a worksheet for you to work through. Remember you can go back and look at any of the videos on the white rose maths website (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/) to help.
These are all the things we have recapped or learnt new this week.
A triangle is a shape with 3 sides and 3 angles and a quadrilateral is any shape with 4 sides and 4 angles (these include a square, rectangle, rhombus, etc,).
There are 6 angles:
The angles on the inside of a triangle ALWAYS add up to 180 degrees.
There are 3 types of triangles:
The opposite angles when two STRAIGHT lines cross are equal.
If you found our recap questions easy and are happy with what we have learnt this week them on the BBC Bitesize website (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhvx6v4) are 7 maths challenges for today. See how many you can do.
Friday afternoon means it is PE time and the summer brings athletics so how about you try these activities and challenges.
You don't need much space so a small space in your garden is perfect, depending on size you might even be able to do it inside. Jumping is our focus this week, individual challenge for you and your family and then a class one. Send in your scores and we can see how well you are doing.
The first is one of Mr Bond's favourite game and is perfectly designed for everyone to join in with, it practices a standing long jump. So parents, brothers, sisters see if they can all do this. All you need is a line to stand behind and a marker. If we were at school we would draw around ourselves with chalk on the playground and draw a line for our knees, shoulders and tops of our heads. Can you jump your own height? The taller you are, the longer your legs and arms (swinging your arms is super important when jumping) the further you should be able to jump. So stand at the feet and see if you can jump to your knees, to your shoulders and to the top of you head. Remember bend those knees, swing those arms and you must land on your feet.
The second challenge will feel familiar if you have been joining in with Joe Wicks in the morning. All you need is a small low barrier (a jumper stretched out on the floor would be perfect) and the object of the game is to jump over it as many times as you can in a minute. Most bounces wins. Try it side to side or forwards and backwards, hopping would be a tricky and exhausting variation.
