Maths

Good news, everyone! Today we are starting our work on algebra!

Now, first things first: DON'T PANIC! Algebra in Year 6 is pretty straightforward if you listen carefully and follow the instructions correctly. We are going to be moving through this at a slow pace but if you get stuck, please let your teacher know as soon as possible (Pankhurst, remember that Miss Facey is in school today, so if you're struggling, please contact Mrs Gooden). There is a lot of fluency today to give you plenty of practice, so just try your best (you don't have to complete the whole sheet if it is too much for you).

For this work, when the video tells you to stop and have a go at questions 1 to 4, we recommend that you do pause today and try those questions first before moving on.

Good afternoon Year 6! I hope you are all having a great week so far :)

This week we are going to be continuing to animate a story but are going to try something a little different :)

This term in your Cornerstones topic you have been working on  Blood Heart and have begun reading 'Pig Heart Boy', so for the next few weeks we are going to centre our computing lessons around this. Over the next few weeks I would like you to incorporate all of what we have learnt in our computing lessons last term into making a Power Point centred around the book 'Pig Heart Boy'.

Last term we worked on facts based around the Frozen Kingdom, however today and for our up and coming computing lessons I would like you to have a go at making a Power Point based on the fiction you have read so far. The aim over the next few weeks is to bring the book to life through animated pictures, speech bubbles, effects, fonts and colours :) Please be sure to include pictures - animations rather than photos which you may wish to source online using your web searching skills, making sure they link in with the story :) You all did so well at this last term so I am sure you will all rise to the challenge and they will be fantastic!

 

I would suggest 12 slides to begin with, making sure to include a cover page and a reference page as we did last term, leaving a remaining 10 slides for your story. I know 10 slides doesn't sound like lots for a story but you are grouping/ summarising the key parts of each chapter (such as 1-2 chapters per slide as remember you can always split 1 slide into 2 if you wish.) PLUS we can always add in some additional slides as time goes on if we need to. If we could all work on 3-4 slides per week that would be great Year 6 :) Please take your time with this as we will be spending a few weeks working on this- don't rush! I am also aware you are still reading the story and that this is an ongoing task so I don't expect it to be finished by the end of the day!

 

Please could you email me with your completed slides for today so that I can check them and give you feedback. Please also email me if you have any questions regarding our new task.

I will be in school today so if I am a little slow at responding I apologise but will get round to replying to you all as quickly as I can :)

I can't wait to see all of your lovely Power Points!

Have a great Thursday everybody,

Miss Constant x

 

 

Basketball Golf

As a game, golf teaches players to shoot from all spots from around the course but instead of a course it will be from around the house or garden and instead of using golf equipment it will be with a ball. This game requires one or more basketballs/makeshift balls and one basket. You shoot from a predetermined spot (hole 1) and shoot, if you miss the shot you then must shoot from where you pick up the ball (rebound). The score for the hole is the number of shots it took for you to make the basket. There are 18 holes on a golf course so you can do this from 18 different sports around the house/garden. The aim is to get the lowest score possible. Once you’ve had one go try again to beat your score or make each different spot harder to shoot from.
