Good Morning 6B

Hello, I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend. I learnt a fantastic card game this weekend called 'Irish Snap'. It is very similar to the version of 'Snap' that you will all know but with a slight twist. I have attached a copy of the rules below so that if you would like to, you can have a go at playing it with your families.

Mini Maths:

This week our Mini Maths focus is on 'algrebra'. Today's task is easier than you think - don't panic just because you have seen the word algebra. All it wants you to do is show each sentence as a sum.

For example: If the sentence said, "Nine more than X." We could write this as 

x + 9 


Reading & English: Please read Chapter 8 & 9 of Holes and answer the VIPER questions. I have also included a short writing task on the second page, which can be completed on paper or using the template on Purple Mash.

Maths: Unfortunately, given the current circumstances, we didn't get the opportunity to explore metric measures in a great amount of detail. We do however use them in everyday life so it is important that we have an understanding of the different measurements and how they can be used effectively. 

We know that there are three different types of measure: mass, capacity and length. 

Mass = how heavy something is (weight).

Capacity = how much liquid something can hold.

Length = how long something is.


Do your best to complete the activity sheet below. It may help to have a measuring jug, weighing scales and a ruler to hand to help you when estimating. If you don't have any of these things here are some estimated measures of household items to help you.

mug = 300 grams

A4 sheet of paper height = 30 cm   Door height = 2 meters

Bottle of water = 500ml      Washing up bowl = 8 - 10 litres


Spelling Shed: Please complete this weeks spelling list by downloading the sheet from below. Do not worry if you don't have a printer you can just practise this weeks spellings on a piece of paper.

R.E: Today we are going to be exploring 'Muslim Birth Ceremonies and Naming Days'. Everything you will need is attached in the files below. 

Please do not feel that you have to print the templates out, you can very easily create your own with a piece of paper and a ruler - ink isn't cheap 6B. 

PSHE: Today's activity involves reflecting over the past 11 weeks and thinking about how lockdown has positively impacted on YOU.

Take some time to think about each of the statements and ask some family members for help if you are finding it a challenge. Don't worry if you can't think of 6 for each statement.
