Good Morning 6B
Well done to all of you that managed to complete the two brain teasers from yesterday. Some of you showed excellent perseverance, which was wonderful to see. Today should have been the final day of SATs and it would have been Reasoning 2, so I have another challenge for you to solve. Enjoy!
A quick reminder, that if you want to enter the Art Competition, please make sure your entries are with me by Friday 15th May. Make sure your initials, age and school can be seen.
Suggested timetable for today:
Joe Wicks - 09:00 - 09:30
My Mini Maths - Arithmetic (5-10 mins)
Reading - Heracles(30 minutes)
SPAG - Identifying Adverbs (30 mins)
TT Rockstars - Studios (5 mins)
Maths - Translation, Reflection & Rotation (30 mins)
Science - Forces (No recommended time limit)
SATs Puzzle - Milk Bottles
My Mini Maths:
You know the drill - complete 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.
Reading Comprehension: This weeks questions focus on your inference skills.
These are the questions where you need to be a detective and find clues in the text that tell you things that aren't written outright.
For example: Jemima took one look at the clock and her face filled with panic. She left her breakfast, quickly grabbed her school bag and hurried out of the door.
Using my inference skills, I can tell you that Jemima is running late.
How do I know? She panics when she sees the clock, she grabs her school bag quickly, she leaves her breakfast and she hurries out.
No where in the text does it tell me that she is running late, but there are plenty of clues that suggest it.
Please complete the reading comprehension 'Heracles', which is attached below, in your green books.
SPAG: Yesterday, we looked at identifying verbs and today I would like you to have a go at finding adverbs.
Log on to SATs Companion and watch the video on Adverbs before completing the activity 'Identify Adverbs'.
Remember not all adverbs end in -ly and when trying to identify the adverb in a sentence, it is always worth finding the verb first.
TT RockStars: Log on to TT RockStars and complete 5 studio sessions.
Feel free to send each other some Rock Slams or alternatively why not get in touch with some of your friends? You could ask them to go on at the same time so that you can compete.
I will set a battle up against Year 5 in the last week of this half-term to see if we can regain our title.
Maths: Today we are going to be looking at identifying whether a shape has been reflected, translated or rotated.
To be successful in this activity, we need to understand the difference between the three.
Reflection: This is where an image is flipped across a line (the line of reflection) and we end up with a mirror image. The diagram to the right shows a reflection that can be made over the y-axis. If we were to place a mirror on the y-axis, our triangle on the left would be shown in the mirror to be where the triangle on the right is.
Translation: The movement of a point/shape from one place to another.
If we look at the diagram to the left, we can see that a translation has been made. The blue irregular pentagon has moved 2 down and 5 right.
Make sure when you are translating each point to the correct new point. For example if you start with the bottom right point, this ends up being the bottom right point on your translated shape.
Rotation: A rotation involves rotating a shape a certain number of degrees. For example, the triangle in the image to right has been rotated 90° left/anti-clockwise. A piece of tracing paper is always helpful when performing rotations as you can draw around the shape, place your pencil on the origin and rotate the tracing paper until you have turned the appropriate amount of degrees.
Log in to SATs Companion and complete the activity 'Identify, describe and represent reflection or translation.
Science: We will be continuing our work on forces today. Check out today's investigation in the PowerPoint attached below.
Remember to record your results carefully and to try to ensure that your test is conducted fairly.
Milk Crate Challenge:
Read the challenge carefully and make sure that you are clear with the rules.
