Good Morning Year 6!

It would be great to see some work from everyone this week – don’t be shy. Just take a photograph of what you have done and send it to us at email@example.com as an attachment. You can earn recognition points with work that shows you’re working hard.
You are doing so well making sure you try your home-learning tasks everyday and we couldn’t be more proud of you.

Today, we would like you to use Summer Term Week 2 Lesson 2 – Angles in regular polygons. Watch the video and pause it if to answer Q1 to 4. Restart the video to hear the explanation of how to approach Q5. This last set of problems in question 5 are really tricky and for those mathematicians who love a challenge. Do not worry if you are not able to do these yet.

Today’s Science Learning
We are going to continue thinking about electricity today. After finding out about power and the difference between an electrical conductor and an electrical insulator, we will turn our attention to the ways electricity has changed our modern world.
Just follow the PowerPoint and click on the arrows to take you to the BBC pages before returning to the next step of the slideshow.
Don’t forget you can email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you if you have a question, need a password, need some help, want to show us your work or even just say hello! Please get your grown up’s permission before you email us. We look forward to hearing from you. We may not reply the same day!
Presentation – Please remember to do your very best work. Handwriting and presentation are as important at home as they are in school. You can complete your work in a book or if you need lined or squared paper you can get it here.
Note for parents: Hopefully your children will enjoy working through these activities and can do independently. We completely understand it may be difficult to complete all these tasks due to other family commitments or you are working from home, so please do not worry; complete what you can with your child.
Ongoing Daily Activities

Competition Reminder – closing date 4th May
Jae Malone, the author of ‘Silver Linings’ unfortunately could not visit us last month because of the Covid situation. However, she is incredibly keen to make sure we keep our imaginations fired and let our love of writing stories grow. Therefore, she has sent some fun ideas on how to create short stories. With these writing prompts you may be able to come up with a brand new story idea that no one else has ever thought of. You don’t have to write stories down, you may picture them in your mind or be a storyteller to members of your family.
As well as these fun story creating ideas, she has set us an exciting challenge. If you would like to win a signed set of Jae Malone’s trilogy, then why not enter her creative writing competition?
All you have to do is send your completed Indiana story from last term. If you have already sent us uploaded photos of your completed story or sent it as a Word document, then all you have to do is ask us to submit it to Jae’s competition. If you didn’t send us your completed story, you have until 4th May to complete your story and send it to us. Remember to use the email@example.com address for your entries.
