For your maths task, go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zb48d6f and complete the activities. There are videos and games to play. There is also a downloadable (or you could write out the questions) task at the bottom to complete. This is all based on the order of operations (BIDMAS) and as long as you follow the correct order (and solve the calculations correctly!) you will get the answer right every time!
If anybody would like to have a game of Times Tables Rock Stars, I propose that at 10:45am-11:15am and/or 2:15pm-2:45pm you log on and we can try and get some games going against each other. I have put two times in case there are some of you who can't get on at one of those times and we will play daily!
No one has been able to beat me yet! My personal best is 75. Bring it on!
I have begun to write your end of year reports, which are making me smile as I write so many positive things about you all and what you have achieved in year 6, up until we left school a few weeks ago. However, this task is not just for me to do. There is a section for you to complete (that we would normally do in class!) about what you feel you have achieved/enjoyed this year, what you feel you could improve on and also what your aspirations are for next year, as you head off to your secondary school.
For your English task today and tomorrow, I would like you to write your comments, using the guidance below for some ideas. I am giving you two days to do this as I would like a lot of thought put into this, practised in a first draft and typed/written to be sent to me to add into your reports.
Achieved/enjoyed can include (and is not limited to):
the subjects taught, activities we have done, dressing up days, PGL, taking part in sporting activities, visits/visitors, etc... (I am sure that you have loads in mind!)
Areas to improve and aspirations for next year as you head off to secondary school should be carefully thought out and considered (maybe have a discussion with parents about this) and could maybe be linked to certain subjects or activities that we have done.
If this is written by hand, please send a picture of it to me so I can add the photo into your report. However, if this is typed, I can copy and paste it straight in.
Either way, please make sure that an adult does check it with you when editing, to make sure that it makes sense and your use of SPaG is correct.
There is a spelling list below for you to practise and I would like you to select another 7 or 8 to practise. I would suggest that you try them and see which ones you know you need to work on!
For your geography task, I would like you to write a couple of paragraphs that use the pictures and maps to describe what the physical geography and the human geography of the area is like.
The physical geography looks at the natural features and you can use resource 1- 4 on the PowerPoint below to describe what the landscape (height and shape of the land), the climate (temperature and rainfall) and the natural vegetation (plants and trees) of the area are like.
The human geography looks at the human activity in the area and you can use the information from the physical geography above and the growing pictures 1-6 on the PowerPoint to decide on what is typically grown because of the climate and weather in the area.
