P.E: Get yourselves warmed up for the day with Joe Wicks by clicking the link here.



Mini Maths: Well done to those of you that sent pictures of your mini maths today. Lots of you getting 4/4 on the simplifying expressions.

I have posted a couple of videos at the top of today's class page of me talking through how to divide by decimals and multiply by decimals as I am still seeing a few mistakes.

Check out today's mini maths questions. Work through each of the simplifying expressions questions carefully and think about what you have left at the end.


Reading: Please take some time to enjoy a book of your choice. Make sure you find somewhere cosy to read and get yourself a drink. As always 6B it is lovely to see photos of you reading so please feel free to send one over via email. 


Why not take some time to find out about this years Summer Reading Challenge 'Silly Squad', which launched this week!


Maths: Yesterday, we looked at converting between miles and km. Today we are going to be doing more of the same. To be successful in today's lesson, you will need to apply the method RUCSAC:; Read, Understand, Choose, Solve, Answer, Check.  

Make sure you have a pen and piece of paper ready to show your working out. For some questions, you may need to work out more than one thing to get to the answer.

Log on to SATs Companion and complete the task 'Convert between miles and km'


English: Please write the next paragraph in your non-chronological report. Remember to plan it first to ensure that you are confident with what you are writing. I have copied below yesterday's example of me planning a paragraph so that you can use it to help you with your planning and writing today.

Example: Nutrition

What does it eat? Does this type of food need to be prepared in a certain way?How much and how often? What are the best times for feeding? Is it allowed any treats? Does it have any allergies? What can it drink? 

When you have jotted all of your questions down, answer them and try to be as specific as possible. Remember somebody is going to be reading your non-chronological report and wondering how to keep their lizard safe. The more information you can give the better, but keep it precise and don't 'waffle'.

After you have planned your content, log on to Purple Mash and write the next paragraph. By Friday your non-chronological report should be complete.


Art: Today we are going to look at drawing Islamic repeating patterns. Watch the video below and then download the presentation below to find out about today's task.
