Don't forget we have got our hour-long session on Zoom today, between 12 and 1pm. We will have a look at our maths work, talking through perimeter, and will then discuss some of the poems you have looked at today as part of World Book Week.
We will use the same password and meeting ID as usual.
Some missing letters to practice our words with unstressed vowel sounds in. Can you replace them and correctly spell our words.

We will have our last session today from the teachers at Oak Academy! Ms Madden will talk about how we develop reading for pleasure through book recommendations. We will focus on poetry, picture books and non-fiction. You will then generate your own recommendations to share with others. Maybe you could talk about these on Zoom later on today?

World Book Week
We have been invited to join some live talks from some famous authors this week on YouTube, who will be discussing their works and what it is like to be an author.
If you decide to watch the Michael Rosen talk at 11am, keep your eyes peeled as Willow Class have won the chance to be involved in the questioning!
These are completely optional - we will be posting a couple more tomorrow - but if you are interested in getting some top tips or information from successful writers, then feel free to watch by clicking on the link below.
One of the objectives that we have to meet in Year 6 is to learn and perform a poem.
Your task today is to discover, read and practice performing a range of different poems. You may already have some of your own favourite poems, but if not you might want to click here to explore some that have been recommended for Year 6. However, feel free to explore poetry books, other websites or even watch poets recite some of their own poems on YouTube. You might want to ask a grown up or a family member if they have any favourite poems.
Try to read through at least 10 different poems to get a feel for what you enjoy.
Towards the end of next week, we will be asking you all to perform your favourite poem. Your poem will need to be at least 5 lines long (so no limericks!) and can be performed in any way that you like. In the past we have had children act them out, bring in props and even get the rest of the class to join in with certain parts! However, just reciting your poem will be great! Try to learn your poem off by heart, but if you need to have the poem with you, then that is fine too.
We are moving on in maths today, but you can find the answers to our last two days at the bottom of this page along with the answers for the activities today.
We are going to be looking at perimeter, area and volume over the next two weeks, starting today and tomorrow. Fairly easy start for you today: the first activity is to check your knowledge from last year and then the second is consolidating that with some extra problems. Both come with a video found here and here.
Use the videos to check your knowledge and use our zoom call later if you have any issues. We will be looking at question 7 on the first sheet and question 6 on the second sheet together then as I think they are possibly the most interesting and trickiest questions.
(50 minutes + ttrockstars)
Today we are going to be looking at what music is made of. Use the link here to go over to the BBC Bitesize website and watch the video on texture. This is how and what sounds make up a song. Using our new knowledge I want you to delve into our work from last week.
Re-listen to the songs you found last week (maybe just the 2 or 3 you enjoyed most) and listen to the texture. What instruments make up your favourite songs? Listen to them carefully what sounds can you hear?
Make a list of the instruments you like the sound of and maybe we can use these in our own songs.
Keep those PE points coming in, we will reveal a winner in our zoom call tomorrow.
