Our timetable for the day is above which will show you when each lesson will be. We will stick to these video times for the forseeable which should help you plan your day around this.

We will continue with the 3 video lessons a day, there will be 15 minutes of input and then the rest of the time will be your own to go and do the activities.

We will be marking this work and using it as proof of attendance for each day.

Feel free to watch newsround each day to keep in touch with what is going on in the world.

Maths

So today we are going to start a new area of maths, looking at Ratio and Proportion.

Proportion simply means the size of something compared to something else which is exactly what we are going to look at today.

Scale Factor is when we compare the size of two objects, either by making it bigger, or smaller. We describe this as increading or decreasing by a scale factor. For example, increasing by a scale factor of 2 means making your shape 2 times bigger. Decreasing your shape by a scale factor of 2 means making your shape 2 times smaller (divide by 2).

Complete the worksheet below, it is also on TeacherMade via Google Classroom if you would prefer.

Mrs Brant will be leading us through some writing in our Google Classroom Meeting. Again, make sure you are logged in and ready to write by 10:20am as we will again only have 15 minutes of live video. You will need your plain exercise book ready with something to write with.

Hello again Year 6! This will be our final week of work regarding the clip ‘The Black Hole’. I am very much looking forward to working with you in the classroom next week!

Today, we are going to discuss how to structure the main body of a news report and all the things it should include. If you didn’t manage to join us for today’s Google Classroom session, please take a look at the video recording in the class announcements. I have explained and modelled some of the features you will need today.

The main body of the news report is where we go into greater detail about the events that took place, we describe the 5 Ws in greater depth. We usually write most of the main body in chronological order, but also include quotes from people that were actually at the scene of the event. To make it sound professional it must stay in a formal tone, past tense and include journalistic phrases. See a link to a document containing these below.

TASK – Today, we will be working in our blue books, so please write today’s date and an ‘E’ in your margin. The title today is, ‘News Report – Main Body’

Using my model for my own news report, I would like you to write your first 2 paragraphs of your main body. Please don’t write any more than this, I will be modelling a further section tomorrow. It should include the following:

• The 5 Ws in more detail – what date and time did the crimes take place? Where exactly? Who was involved? What role do they carry out at the company? What happened? Tell the events in order. What is the suspected motive for the crime?
• I would like to see two embedded clauses to help tell the story.
• There should be at least two fronted adverbials of time or place.
• I want to see at least two journalistic words or phrases. See the document attached below for some ideas.
• Include one quote from either a witness or policeman at the scene. (Look at last week’s work for help with this).

Keep up the good work Year 6, I love reading your writing!

PSHE

Hello Year 6! For PSHE today, we are going to be looking at age restrictions and why they are so important. Today’s main focus is film and film content.

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has a very important job – they will watch and classify all films that will be shown in the cinema, on DVDs or on UK streaming services. Whilst watching, they look for key areas and issues that may be shown within in a film such as violence, nudity and drug use. Film and Video Compliance Officers then meet to discuss which age range they think the material is suitable for. This is done so that children, young people and their parents can make decisions about what they watch, and also to protect young people from content they may find upsetting or uncomfortable.

You may already recognise these symbols. What do they mean?

TASK – You will be mostly working online today, but please still write today’s date in your blue books, with PSHE in the margin. The title is, ‘Film Classification’.

Click the link below. Watch the video clip about the role of the BBFC, then complete the quiz below it. Write your score into your blue books. Then have a go at rating the Horrible Histories film trailer – did you get it right? Note this into your blue books.

Hope this helps your understanding of the importance of age classifications!

Science

We are doing a great job of our Light topic in science - well done all! Having looked at reflection from mirrors last week, this week we are going to look at which materials are reflective, especially interesting with the array of materials you will have at home. Read through the slides below then complete the worksheet. This is also on TeacherMade through Google Classroom.
