Thursday 7th May 2020
Hello again Year 6, I hope you have been working hard but also enjoying the lovely warm weather that has returned. Once again, thank you all for working so hard. I am hoping that we will hear about the possible return to school in the Prime Minister's press conference as some point this week. We are all watching everyday to find out what lifting the lockdown will mean for schools. As soon as we know, you will know. Hopefully, it won't be too much longer, but who knows! Not me!
As I said yesterday, I will not be setting any work for Friday, as it isa bank holiday and I am going to enjoy the sun in my garden. I hope you do something nice.
Stay safe year 6. I will be updating the website on Monday.
Today's tasks are:
English – Grammar https://classroomsecrets.co.uk/free-home-learning-packs/
This link will take you to 'Summer Term Week 3'. But if you notice in right corner, there is an option to change the week. Click on the pull down tab and select 'Week 1'. Choose the Year 6 pack and download. Now, go to pages 6-7-8 and complete work on relative clauses, modal verbs and adverbs. If this doesn’t take very long go, to Week 2, download the Year 6 pack and complete work on pages 11 and 12 on semi-colons, colons and hyphens.
Maths – Find the Mean. The mean or average of a set of data is the total divided by the number of items in the set.
Example – The number of hours worked by a plumber each day: 11 8 5 9 6 10 7 9 4 6 Total hours = 75 hours No. of days = 10 Mean = 7.5 hours (75 ÷ 10)
Tomorrow is VE day.
Find out about VE day – what is it? Why is it celebrated? What is so important this year?
