Good morning everyone. We had a really productive week last week and it was nice to hear from a few of you that have been a little quiet.
Could you start the day with a quick email to the class email address (year6Kclass@scotby.cumbria.sch.uk), sharing what you have been up to recently? One of the things I miss most about being in class is finding out what you are getting up to outside of school. Thank you in advance.
Check this out!
I think Sofia M and Emma K deserve the round of applause for this one. 3rd and 4th in the top spellers for the school. Wow! Well done girls you've done us proud.
Thank you to everyone who has sent over work this week. I have enjoyed reading every word and it makes me proud that you are sticking with your learning and demonstrating our core values of Commitment and Responsibility, among others.
Please complete either the SATs Companion questions or the worksheet in the daily resources (or both) after watching the video. The worksheet will provide better practice for you).
Extra support - Should you need a little more help, there is an excellent video here (Primary English Lab).
Design and technology -
When designing your machine that will help Stanley dig his hole you will need to understand how 'simple machines' work. We have seen this video before in class. Can you remember what the 6 'simple machines' were that they use in this video?
Today I would like you to research simple machines and then have a go at creating your own Rube Goldberg machine - just like in the video- using things that you have lying around your house. Try to include at least 3 types of simple machines and also think carefully about how they could be used in the machine you are designing for Stanley.
