Good morning Oak Class. Another week is flying by!

I hope you all enjoyed our Google Classroom English lesson yesterday. Don’t worry if you missed it, it’s recorded for you to look back on (I think!?!) Let me know if you can access it using the link I shared on the Google Classroom stream.

Now for today’s work…

English

Day 4 – Thursday

LI – to write free verse and narrative poetry.

This is a very similar LI to yesterday’s Google Classroom lesson so should be a good revison of yesterday’s work if you choose to do the BBC lesson today.

Extension

LI – to write a reflective diary entry.

Task 1. Read and enjoy Chapter Two (The Green Dark – pages 6 – 17) of The Explorer by Katherine Rundell here: https://www.booktrust. org.uk/globalassets/res ources/blogs/2017/sept ember/the-explorer- katherine-rundell- extract.pdf

Task 2. Based on what you have read, write a diary entry as Fred – reflecting on the day’s events.

You may wish to use the following structure for your diary entry – writing Fred’s account of what happened and his thoughts and feelings for each section:

Structure:

 1.The plane journey. 2. Fred’s first glimpses of the rainforest 3. Meeting the other survivors 4. The snake and finding a place to sleep

Remember, you can use the Writing Assessment Framework as a checklist to ensure you include as many Y6 writing features as possib;e:

Also, remember to keep proof-reading your diary to check for spelling and punctuation and keep thinking about which piece(s) of English work you are going to send to me this week. This diary entry would be a great one!

Maths

LI – to convert between miles and kilometres.

Find the Maths lesson for today –  18th June.

Extension

LI – to solve problems involving the calculation of units of measure.

For the maths extension task today, I would like you to work thorough the Maths Mastery Challenge Cards by following the link below.

There are seven cards in total, so you can decide – based on your confidence and level of understanding – how many is an appropriate number to complete. Some of you will do all of them and some might do three or four. As long as you’re challenging yourself and working to the best of your ability, that’s ok. Please make sure you do all your working out in your Home Learning Book and remember to share your work with me.

RE

LI – to know that there are similarities and differences between the names given to and characteristics used to describe God by Christians and by members of non-christian faiths.

This lesson carries on from last week’s RE lesson so if you didn’t do it, please make sure you read the information below and watch the BBC Teach video. For those of you who did the lesson last week, you may wish to re-read and re-watch to refresh your memory but you don’t have to. The piece of work to be submitted will be set on Google Classroom so I will be checking this has been done.

Hindus believe Brahman is the supreme God who controls the universe. Brahman, who is limitless, manifests himself in many forms and therefore Hindus appear to worship many gods with different physical appearances, different names and characteristics. However, Hindus believe they are all part of the same deity. Can you think of any similarites with Christian beliefs about the Holy Trinity?  For example, Vishnu restores, Shiva destroys, Brahama creates, Ganesh is the remover of obstacles, Saraswati is the goddess of learning, Lakshmi is the goddess of good fortunes and well-being, Agni, the fire god, and Indra wields a thunderbolt and is a protector and provider of rain. Hindus are devoted to the god who inspires them most.

Watch the following YouTube clip and look really carefully at the images of the Hindu gods. Think about the objects they carry, their clothing and colour which all symbolise the various aspects of their story, character and powers. At first glance the Hindu gods seem to be very different to Christianity and they are. However when you look more closely at the names, attributes and character, many similarities can be found.

Now go to Google Classroom and find the piece of work that I have set for you. You will need to look online to find the names and images of Hindu gods. You are going to complete a grid with images of Hindu gods in one column and for each god, at least one similarity you can find between that god and the Christian God. As an extension, if you find any stark differences, these could be added in a different colour. I’ve done one for you as an example. Please go to Google Classroom now to access the work.

Well done for all your hard work today. ‘See’ you all tomorrow! Mrs Fitz x
