Hello, Year 6!! How are you all today? The sun is set to shine for us over the next couple of days.
Thank you to those of you who completed the comprehension on Socrative. It is very helpful for us to see your answers. It was lovely to see some of you using it for the first time!

One of our character values is ‘courage’ so it’s pleasing to see you embracing the new ways of learning. Fantastic – Year 6! You are more than welcome to use the login to read any of the books available.

We hope that you enjoyed the first part of ‘The Boscombe Valley Mystery’. Today, we’d like you to read chapters 3, 4 and 5 (p13-23) and that will take you to the end of the story. After that, we’d like you to complete a comprehension on Socrative. There is a mixture of question types.
Just make sure that you read the question carefully. Also, there is no need to start again if you answer one of the questions incorrectly - it isn't a test!
You can find a copy of the story as an e-book on the Oxford Reading Owls website.

For today’s maths, you are going to focus on comparing and ordering fractions. 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.
