Good morning Year 6, how's it going? What have you been up to over the last few days? It does feel strange not seeing you all. The teachers at Ladbrooke are taking it in turns to go to work and teach the children coming in. I am not due in until the week after next, so I am at home, attempting to home school my two boys. Turns out Reception and Year 2 are massively different to Year 6, and maybe I should stick to Year 6!
I am sorry about the problems encountered yesterday with the maths website. I am hoping this doesn't happen again.
Today's daily tasks are:
English - If you are able to, please send me an email about how you are feeling and what you are doing. I promise to reply to each of you. If you cannot send an email, this should be in the form of a letter in your exercise book. You should also be practising your year 5/6 spelling words during this time.
I hope you are using this time to read as much as you can. Reading takes us away from our everyday lives and, right now, that is a something well-needed.
https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/ - David Walliams is reading one of his stories everyday for free.
https://stories.audible.com/start-listen - A choice of stories to listen to for free.
Maths - Below, in the entitled 'Maths support', you will find a document that contains an Arithmetic paper. It has errors. We have done something like this in class before. I would like you to go through the paper and correct it. You do not need to print this off, rather, complete it in your given exercise book. You shouldn't need the answers because you are essentially marking it!
I noticed yesterday, during my research for your tasks, that Carol Vorderman's website, which usually has a charge to use, is now free! Make the most of this, because it is a great website. You still have to register for free access BUT you won't have to pay - https://www.themathsfactor.com/
