Good Morning 6B


I hope that you are all well. 

I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the challenge videos that some of you have sent over the past couple of days and I will aim to get them up on the class page today.  

Well done with yesterday's work there was quite a bit of reading to do so I promise to keep it to a minimum today. 

Please don't forget that I am just an email away so if you are finding any of the work a challenge, send me a quick message and I will do my best to support you in whatever way I can.


Keep up the good work 6B - you are doing a great job!


Suggested Timetable for Today

Morning Activities:

P.E: Full Speed - Fresh Start

Mini Maths: Mean, Mode, Median & Range

Reading: Free Read

Maths: Fractions of an amount

English: Holes - Retrieving Facts


Afternoon activities:

Science - Separating Mixtures

Music - Livin' On A Prayer


P.E: Let's get ourselves nice and energised for the day ahead with a 4 minute Full Speed workout. I know that lots of you have taken up walking, running, trampolining, cycling or even kettlebell workouts so if you don't fancy the exercise in the video, make sure you put some time aside today to do some exercise of your choice. 

Mini Maths: The mini maths today will continue to look at mean, mode, median and range. I know that some of you asked for some help with finding the median yesterday so I will put a few notes here.

The median = middle number 

Data: 9, 1, 19, 5, 2, 10

Step 1: order your data from smallest to largest.

1, 2, 5, 9, 10, 21

Step 2: identify where the middle number falls.

1, 2, 5,__,9, 10, 21

Step 3: work out what number comes halfway between 5 and 9.

Median = 7

(Note that the median can sometimes be a decimal e.g. median of 6 and 7 = 7.5)

Reading: Take some time to enjoy a book of your choice. Don't forget to complete any outstanding quizzes on STAR Reader that you may have. Click the quiz image below to go straight to STAR Reader.

If you are struggling to find a book at the moment, please get in touch and I will do my best to make some recommendations based on what you may like. 

Here are a few that I have finished this year that I think some of you might enjoy:

Orphans of the Tide

The Boy Who Made the World Disappear

A Murder Most Unladylike

Artemis Fowl

Fowl Twins

Brightstorm (sequel = Darkwhispers)

A Monster Calls

Frost Heart

Wizards of Once

Can you see me?

The Star Outside My Window (Same author as The Boy at Back of the Class)

Maths: Today we are going to be recapping finding a fraction of an amount. 

The key thing to remember when finding a fraction of a whole number is that we divide by the denominator and multiply by the numerator.


For example:

3/5 of 1500 = 

Remember: divide by the denominator and then multiply by the numerator

1500 ÷ 5 = 300

This tells us that 1/5 of 1500 = 300 but we need 3/5 so we multiply our 300 by the numerator (3)

300 x 3 = 900

3/5 of 1500 = 900

When you feel ready, complete the worksheet attached below.

Should you have any questions at all, just ask.

English: Please read and complete the activity set out in the image below.

I have also attached, for ease, a copy of the chapters from yesterday. You should start retrieving information from chapter 4.

Science: This term we are going to be exploring how we can separate mixtures. All of the information for today's lesson is included in the PowerPoint attached below. When you have completed the PowerPoint, please email it back completed with your responses and send in any photos you may have taken. 

Music: I have attempted to set you all up on an online version of Charanga called Yumu, which is the music programme we use within school. Today I would like you to listen to and appraise the song Livin' On A Prayer by Jon Bon Jovi.

To access Yumu you will need to click HERE and enter your log in details, which I will have sent to you on SATs Companion by 11am. If you have not received them by then, please send me an email to let me know.


When you are logged in, you need to click on the scheme 'Songs for Ages 9 - 11, which looks like this.


Once inside, click scheme songs and then search for the Listen and Appraise - Livin' On A Prayer link on the right.

Your screen should now look like this.


Click on the questions tab, press play and think about the questions whilst you are listening. 


When you have finished, read the information about the song and check out the lyrics. 


It is a programme that we haven't used at home yet so please bear with me if we experience any problems.
