P.E: It was great to hear that many of you had enjoyed doing the Waka Waka last week. I hope it brought back some good memories from this school year. Get warmed up for the day with this dance favourite.
Flashback 4: Check out the answers to yesterday's Flashback 4 below.
There were a couple of tricky questions here. I am going to focus on 3 and 4 as this is where the most common errors were. Q3) Many of you got 15:6, but as mentioned before this can be simplified if you find a common factor e.g. 3. Always remember to give ratio in the order that it has been asked for.
Q4) You could have done 100 ÷ 20 = 5 x 13 = 65 or 13 ÷ 20 x 5 = 65
Let's have a look at today's questions.
Remember to simplify the ratio for Q3. Let's see you all getting 100% today.
Reading: We have been blasting through the reading of Holes this week, but today, I would like you to take some time to read a book of your choice. You can, if you wish, use this time to complete any outstanding quizzes or have a go at some of the short article quizzes on STAR Reader.
Maths: As with English, today I would like you to complete Reasoning 1 of question Set C on SATs Companion. Make sure you apply the RUCSAC method with each question: Read, Understand, Choose, Solve, Answer and Check.
This is the final week of planned English and maths sessions, so if you do have any queries about any of the questions, please send me a message and I will do my best to explain them to you.
Spelling Shed: Yesterday, I sent a message around on SATs Companion explaining that I had set up a year 6 Spelling Challenge. Please have a go at logging on and seeing if you can access the challenge.
Will you come out on top at the end of the week?
Science: Last Wednesday, you set up a science investigation which explored the process of evaporation. Hopefully, you have kept a record of your results, which will lead us nicely onto today's lesson. Do not worry if you were unable to conduct the investigation, I set of data has been provided in the slides below, so you can always use these results if you don't have your own data set.
