With reference to Friday’s Kahoot!. Thank you to those who followed the instructions. On the whole, you did very well. We keep records of who is completing online tasks so if you put a name that isn’t yours into the box, then we do not know that you have completed the activity. Please follow instructions.
Remember, when we return to school, we will be collecting all work in and we're looking forward to seeing evidence of your best efforts.
Those of you who are working hard and doing everything we ask, we really are very impressed, pleased and proud. You are getting the most out of the experience and we look forward to being able to tell you that in person. We know that the circumstances are difficult at the moment, but we would urge you all to do the very best you can.
Now for today’s learning:

Spelling Groups 1 and 2
We are going to continue to focus on the Years 5/6 list. Each week, we will show a piece of work that has been completed by Mr Whoops. In each piece of writing, he has spelt some of the Years 5/6 words incorrectly – whoops! Your job is to spot the words he has spelt incorrectly and have a go at writing them correctly in your workbook. We will put up the answers tomorrow so you can check that you spotted them all and spelt them correctly.
If you usually have your own spellings, here they are:
For today’s maths, after a warm-up, you are going to continue the unit of work about ‘angles’. The focus is angles in a quadrilateral. There is a video to watch, then a task to complete. You can answer the questions in your exercise book.
Remember, you can pause the video at any point.
Start by watching the video and then open the pdf sheet underneath for the questions.
Last week, you spent time developing the setting and characters for your extended narrative. Today is the day when you will begin to write the story. Because this is an extended narrative, it will really give you the time to develop the plot and include all of the features of good writing that you know we expect to see – you are all experts at knowing what those features are, now!
Click on the pdf to find out more. Remember – you are writing the story into your blue book.
Here is a copy of the ticklist that you are used to seeing in the back of your English book to help you to produce writing of a good quality.
Before school closed, you were given a VERY quick introduction about how to draw people in proportion. Some of you are familiar with this and had a go but most people didn’t so we want to give you time to develop the skill and produce a piece of art that we can – hopefully - display in the classroom when we return.
You can work in your exercise book but you will probably find it easier on plain paper if you have some. Lesson 1 is about how to draw a single figure in proportion. Click on the pdf to find out more.
