Hello, Year 6! How are you all today?
Here are Monday’s answers:
Thank you for all of your reflections. It’s been lovely to read that you are having a go with the learning. The Vikings seem particularly popular and we are looking forward to seeing the models of longships! We’re also glad that you are understanding the scale factors. Well done to those of you who performed the Charge of the Light Brigade! We would love to have seen that!
A couple of you mentioned that you can’t find the answers. Answers are always posted the next day. So…today’s answers will be posted tomorrow and they will always be at the top of the daily website page, usually as a pdf document.
If you are finding it difficult, just do exactly what you would do in school – try your best! We have tried to include video clips to help so that it isn’t all reading, but reading is an important skill and the more of it you do, the better you will get!
If you have any trouble accessing the Socrative rooms, just be really careful that you are entering the room name accurately. Over 40 of you have managed to log on and send your comments so we know it’s definitely working!
It sounds like you are all finding time to have fun and relax which is really important. Building dens, making flapjacks (yum), taking the dog for a walk, drawing orcs, making a ping-pong table, taking virtual trips and video calling grandparents are just some of the things you have mentioned.
Don’t forget, our school now has a twitter page where, using #hallathome, your parents could post some photos of your work for us to see, especially those Viking projects! You can also enter the Easter competition for Year 6: decorate an egg.
We’re really impressed with the attitude of so many of you. It’s very heartening for us to know that you are using the work that we are setting. Keep it up and stay safe.
Now for today’s learning:

Click here for today’s Newsround Story.
For today’s maths, you will bring together what you know about ‘ratio and proportion’. There is a video to watch, then a task to complete. You can answer the questions in your exercise book.
Start by watching the video and then open the pdf sheet underneath for the questions.
Remember, you can pause the video at any point.
For English, there is a booklet for you to read called ‘The Holiday’.
Click on the pdf to view it.
Then, you need to answer the questions from the booklet in your exercise book. Click on the pdf to view it. Don’t be confused – the first question should be q26!
PDF tip: if you right click on a pdf document, you can set it to open in a new window or new tab. This will make it easier for you to move between the answer booklet and the question booklet.
Today, you are going to continue learning about Viking home life. Watch the video clips (please enable Flash on your computer if you are prompted to do so):
Click here to learn about what the Vikings used to eat.
Click here to learn about what the Vikings used to wear.
Click here to learn about Vikings beliefs.
Watch this story of a family who settled in Britain. It will remind us, again, of the violent perception we have of the Vikings, but present an alternative view that is far more representative of the Vikings who settled in Britain.
Begin to add to your project what you have found out about the way Vikings lived in Britain. Include what you learnt yesterday about longhouses and farming.
You will continue with this tomorrow.
