Good morning Oak Class. Let’s begin today with a little welcome back from me…

Now to start our work…

English

Go to BBC website https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zncsscw/year-6-lessons/1

Find the English lesson for today – 22 April: English

Record the LI below in your Home Learning book and record any notes, etc in your book. The final activity is a twinkl sheet – you can either print out the sheet or copy the work into your home learning book.

LI – To identify and use passive and active verbs.

LI – to make predictions and write descriptively.

1. Watch the Teacher’s TV Jewellery Box clip using the following link:

In your Home Learning book (under the date and LI), write down your prediction – what has happened? Why?

Watch again and write down some noun phrases to describe what you can see in the shop, e.g. glistening necklaces, mysterious statues, etc.

Now build these into interesting sentences, e.g. Glistening necklaces, which dangled in all areas of the shop, caught my eye.

1. The clip builds up a lot of tension. Use the following link and read the information to remind yourself of how to build tension in writing: https://www.talk4writing.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Suspense-toolkit.pdf

Have a go at writing a narrative for this scene. Choose a perspective to write it from such as: the lady, the shop-keeper, the jewellery box. Don’t forget to build up the tension.

Share your story with a family member in your home – how did it make them feel?

Maths

Use the 22 April: Maths lesson on the BBC website:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zncsscw/year-6-lessons/1

LI – To understand the position of negative numbers on a number line, as well as some contexts in which they are used, e.g. temperatures or money.

Watch the video clip, read all the information, complete the quiz and then the twinkl worksheet.

Maths Extension

I hope that you enjoyed the Easter Chocolate Mystery Maths Game that you did yesterday and Monday. Today, we are starting a new mystery – The Mystery of the Missing Knight – which links nicely to St. George’s Day tomorrow. Just like the Easter Chocolate Mystery, the idea of the game is that you solve a mystery by working through a range of different puzzles and activities. At the end of each activity you can cross people off your list of suspects (it’s a bit like the game Cluedo – you have a list of suspects and instead of travelling round the board asking questions you solve maths questions and eventually you will be left with one suspect.) Today, I want you to Solve clues 1, 2 and 3 only. We will continue with the rest of the clues tomorrow and find out who the culprit is! As the document is a PDF, the answers are at the end of it. Make sure you don’t look ahaed or you’ll ruin it for yourself!

PE: Please do Mr Garvey’s PE challenge for today. It would also be great if you start each week day with Joe Wick’s daily PE lesson or something similar that you enjoy.

Stilling Time

Once you’ve watched it, have a go at doing a body scan (either sitting down or lying down, indoors or outdoors). Start at the top of your head and work down to your toes. Focus on reconnecting body and mind.

Geography

Please use the 21 April: Geography lesson on the BBC website. I think this looks really interesting and it’s not something that we’ve covered this year.

LI – to learn about the different types of settlements including a hamlet, a village, a town and a city.

Write the LI in your Home Learning book and then work through the lesson. Watch the video clips and read the information (make any notes that you want). For activity 1, you will need to make a list in your Home Learning book for all the differences between London and Tokyo that you can think of. Activity 2 is an online game.

That’s it for today. Well done superstars!!!
