Good Morning 6B!








I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are looking forward to the week ahead.

Remember there are only four days this week as Friday is a bank holiday for VE Day. 

If you don't already know, see if you can find out what VE Day is laugh.


Suggested timetable for today:

Joe Wicks - 09:00 - 09:30

Fluent in 5 - Arithmetic (5 mins)

Reading - Mathos Chapter 2 (15 - 20 minutes)

English - An Incredible Journey (30 Minutes)

Maths - Addition & Subtraction Multi-step problems (30 Mins)

SPAG - Identifying Main Clauses (40 mins)

If you complete all of today's tasks, why not have a go at some of your classmates 'Spartan Trials'? You can find these in a slideshow on the 6B class homepage. 


Joe Wicks: Complete the Joe Wicks workout. You can catch it live everyday from 09:00 - 09:30 on YouTube by following the link here.


Fluent in 5:

Please complete the questions above, aim to complete them within five minutes and then use the inverse operation to check your answers.


Reading & Writing: Log in to Purple Mash and read the second chapter of the myth 'Mathos', which has been set as a to do task. When you have finished reading chapter 2 of Mathos, complete the 'To Do Task - The Incredible Journey'. 


Remember to include your emotions. Think back to our work on Goodnight Mister Tom and remember to 'show not tell'.

Have a look at the examples here to describe emotions using show rather than tell.


When describing the flight, consider the following:

How fast are you going?

What is happening around you? Do you nearly crash into something? What can you see around you? How does the animal treat you? 




Maths: Today we are going to be going back to basics and looking at using addition and subtraction to solve multi-step problems. Remember that when we are problem solving we use the method RUCSAC.









Make sure you that you take your time to understand what the question is asking you. Underline or jot down any key information or vocabulary.


All the questions are multi-step problems, this means you will have to do more than one calculation to get the correct answer.


Take your time and at the end of each question, double check your working out and check that your answer makes sense.


SPAG: Last week we looked at the different sentence types: simple, compound and complex. Today we are going to look at main clauses, which we know form simple sentences.


To be successful in today's task we need need to recap main, subordinating  and relative clauses.



Main clause: Makes sense on its own and needs a subject (noun) and verb.


Subordinating clause: Doesn't make sense on its own. Needs a main clause to make sense (dependent clause). Often starts with a subordinating conjunction (I SAW A WABUB).


Relative clause: Doesn't make sense on its own. Special type of subordinating clause because it starts with a relative pronoun: who, which, where, that, whose, whom, when.


When you have read the information above, log in to SATs Companion and complete the activity 'Identifying Main Clauses'.


Art: Use this afternoon to make a start on the Scotby Art Competition. You can choose to either go with the theme 'My Favourite Place' or 'What Makes Us Smile?' 



You can complete your piece of art using any media: pencil, paint, sculpture etc. It is entirely up to you!


The deadline isn't until the 15th May so please don't feel like you have to get it finished today. I have attached below the Art Competition poster for you to have a look at.

R.E: Over the next few weeks, we are going to be looking at Islam and the question we will be exploring is this: What does it mean to be a Muslim in British society today?


I would like you to open up the attached presentation below, read through carefully and complete the activities.
