Good Morning 6B


I hope that you are all well and that you are ready for another day of learning. 


Suggested Timetable for Today

P.E: Strengthen Your Focus

Flashback 4: Recapping maths

Reading: Free Read

English: Using Dashes

Maths:  Angles in Quadrilaterals

Science: Separating Mixtures Lesson 5


P.E: Get yourselves focused for the day with a little bit of light yoga. Remember a healthy body = a healthy mind.

Flashback 4: Check out the answers to yesterday's questions below.

Well done to those of you that got the ratio question correct today. A couple of people getting caught out by Q2. 30g = 2 people so to get to 8 people we only need to multiply by 4, not 8.

Great effort to those who got 100%.

Let's take a look at today's questions.

Reading: Grab yourself a good book and find yourself a cosy place to read. If you have recently finished a book and haven't already completed the STAR Reader quiz, you can get these done today by clicking on the picture to the right.

English: Today, we are going to be recapping dashes and how they can be used within a sentence. 

Remember brackets, commas and dashes can be used to add extra information to a sentence. If the extra information is added to the middle of a sentence you need two dashes (one at either side of the extra information). Remember though, that if you remove the extra information you should be left with an independent clause that makes sense on its own.

On SATs Companion, you are going to be looking at sentences that require only one dash to separate independent clauses.

For example:

Strawberries are my favourite fruit - I like to pick my own.

If I removed,"I like to pick my own." I could put a full stop after fruit and my sentence would still make sense. The dash has been used to add extra detail. 


Log on to SATs Companion and see if you can work out where the dashes go. 

Do not get confused between a dash and a hyphen. A hyphen is slightly shorter than a dash.

Maths: I have been very impressed so far with your knowledge on angles 6B. We are going to be moving on from looking at angles in triangles today and start looking at quadrilaterals (4 sided shapes). 

What can you tell me about the angles in a square? 

You should be able to tell me that a square has four right angles and each right angle is 90°. This means that if we were to add all the angles together,

90 + 90 + 90 + 90 our total would be 360°.

The same total as angles around a point! 


In any quadrilateral, the internal angles, when added together, will always equal 360°. Below you can see some examples:

In today's maths activity, you are going to be identifying missing angles from quadrilaterals. You may need to occasionally draw on your knowledge of angles in triangles too. Download today's activity sheet by clicking the pdf file attached below this poster.

Science: Throughout this half-term, we have been looking at separating materials. Last week, you planned and conducted your own investigations looking at dissolving and creating solutions.


This week, you are going to be exploring whether or not it is possible to get your solids back after they have been dissolved.

Find out more by downloading the PowerPoint presentation below.

Please send through any photos of you conducting your investigation today smiley.
