Good Morning 6B
I hope you are all well and are enjoying this week's learning.
Today I would like each of you to send me a quick message, either via email or on SATs Companion, telling me one thing that you did in the half-term break or one thing that you have coming up that you are looking forward to.
I shall look forward to hearing from you all!

P.E: Get yourselves warmed up for the day with Joe Wicks by clicking the link here.
We are continuing with Mean, Mode, Median and Range but this time with a slight problem solving twist.
A few people contacted me yesterday to clarify how to multiply and divide by decimals. I have put some videos together so, if you are unsure, please give me a quick message and I will send the videos over to you. Remember to estimate with the multiplying decimals questions by rounding both numbers to the nearest whole number and then multiplying. This way you will know if the answer you get when you work it out properly is about right.
Reading: Please read chapter 6 of 'Holes' by opening the file attached below. When you have finished reading, answer the comprehension questions outlined below in full sentences.
Maths: Today we are going to be comparing and ordering fractions. Remember the key to ordering fractions is to ensure that you put them all over the same denominator (common denominator). To do this you need to find a multiple that the denominators have in common.
3/5 1/4 2/10
To find the common denominator, I need to find a common multiple of 5, 4 and 10. The lowest common multiple that these all go in to is 20, so our common denominator will be 20.
To then workout the numerator for each fraction, we have to ask ourselves what we multiplied the original denominator by to get to 20. For example:
3/5 we multiply the 5 by 4 to get to 20 and whatever we do to the denominator, we have to do to the numerator too (3 x 4). Therefore, 3/5 = 12/20.
When you have put all the fractions over the same denominator and have multiplied the numerators accordingly, you will then be able to order the original fractions from smallest to largest.
If you are still unsure, please watch the video below and then complete the worksheet attached underneath.
English: Please open the PDF file below, read the information carefully and then have a go at completing the task.
The best way to approach this task is to start with a simple sentence and then to gradually develop it by making little changes here and there.
I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
Art: Today you are going to be identifying how 2D shapes can make up an image and how these can help you to recreate the drawing to scale.
Check out the PowerPoint attached below on Islamic Architecture and work through each of the steps carefully. Take your time as this is your last activity for the day .
