Good Morning 6B


Thank you very much to all of you that sent pictures of painted rocks yesterday. I am very much looking forward to my next outing in the local area and seeing all of your lovely creations. 


If you haven't already, be sure to check out the special message from all the Scotby staff by clicking here.

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.


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.
















Remember to use the inverse operation to check that your working out is correct.







Reading: We will be continuing our 'Silly SATs' and today would have been the reading paper.

Open the file below and complete the questions. Remember they are supposed to be silly so don't take it too seriously and feel free to send your answers over to me if you want me to check it through laugh.

SPAG: This week we are going to be looking at word classes e.g. nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives etc.

We are going to start by looking at nouns. Log on to SATs Companion and in the lessons section find and watch the video 'Nouns' before completing the set activity 'Identifying Nouns'.


Aim to score at least 80% and remember if you not happy with your score, you can always have another go by finding the activity in the results section and clicking 'Try Again'.


Spelling Shed: 

Last week we looked at the letter string 'ough' and today we will be continuing with this rule but exploring the different sounds 'ough' can make.

Open the activity sheet below and start with the sorting activity first.

Maths: Log on to MyMaths and complete the activity 'Translating and Reflecting'.


Remember translating is moving from one place to another. For example, the red triangle has moved 5R (right) and 2D (down) to get to where the blue triangle is.


Reflection is when the shape has been reflected over a certain point. In the diagram to left, we can see that the right angled triangle has been reflected over the x-axis.

if we were to put a mirror on the x-axis, we should see that these two shapes are the mirror image of each other (the reflection).


 We covered this around the end of January so if you need any help feel free to message me either via SATs Companion or on the class email.

Topic: Can you find out and write about what life would have been like or children in Ancient Greek times?


Use the template provided on Purple Mash and remember to use the 'Think About' box to prompt your ideas. 


Here are some suggestions of websites you could use when researching:

BBC Bitesize

Primary Homework Help


ICT: Now more than ever, children are accessing the internet. Your mission is to create a video, PowerPoint, poster, audio recording or mind map educating peers about how to stay safe online.

Make sure you make children aware of both the benefits and risks to being online.

What shouldn't they be doing? 

What should they do if they have an issue?

What information should they keep secure?


Make sure that, however you choose to present the information, you get your audiences attention.


I look forward to seeing what you come up with laugh.
