Good Morning 6B
I hope you are all well and that you had a fantastic extended weekend. If you did celebrate VE Day in your household, I would love to hear about it or see any photos that you may have taken. If you didn't celebrate it, then equally I would love to know what you got up to with your extra day.
Did you know that today would have been the start of SATs week? To mark the occasion, I thought it would be good fun to complete a 'Silly SATs' paper on each of the days. Today we will start with SPAG, which would have been the first paper you would have sat .
I hope you enjoy today's activities and I am looking forward to hearing from you all.
Suggested timetable for today:

My Mini Maths:
In a similar way to 'Fluent in 5', I would like you to have a go at completing the 8 questions set out across the two images.
If you find any of the questions a little bit of a challenge or you can't remember the method required, please feel free to drop me a message either via SATs Companion or email and I will do my best to support you.
Remember to use the inverse operation to check that your working out is correct.
Don't get thrown by the answer being on the opposite side of the question. Remember that the equals sign means that both sides have to balance (have the same value).
Reading/Writing: Log on to Purple Mash and read chapter 3 of 'Mathos', which has been set as a To Do. When you have finished reading it, complete the activity 'The Beast'.
Think about your five senses when writing your descriptive piece.
Remember to create imagery for the reader through the use of similes/metaphors.
Consider onomatopoeic language (bang, crack, pop)
Try to use a variety of different sentence types: simple, compound and complex.
SPAG: Check out the 'Silly SATs' paper attached below. I have done my best at completing the 12 questions on the SPAG paper. Your job is to mark it for me and correct any errors I may have made.
If you don't have a printer, feel free to write the question numbers down on a piece of paper and write the correct answer next to each one.
Maths: Today we will continue with looking at coordinates. The task I would like you to complete is 'Plot Coordinate Points', which is available on SATs Companion.
The key to success with this activity is knowing the phrase:
ALONG THE CORRIDOR THEN UP/DOWN THE STAIRS!
x axis = along the corridor (across)
y axis = up/down the stairs.
Using this advice, I can tell you that the blue pentagon is at (-5,-2) because I go to -5 along the corridor and then down to -2.
Over the next two R.E sessions, you are going to learn about the 'Five Pillars of Islam' and produce a high quality information leaflet on Purple Mash.
Check out the information in the PowerPoint attached below.
This does not need to be completed until next week.
Art: Your task is to decorate a rock to leave in your local community to spread a bit of positivity in these unusual times.
Last week, I posted a video of one that I had made on the Scotby Twitter page, which you can check out here.
I would love to see as many photos of these as possible and don't feel that you just have to do one.
Have fun and don't forget that if you want to enter the Art Competition, you need to get your artwork to me by the end of this week.
