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 – some great embedded clauses yesterday, well done! Hoping to see some examples of them in your future work.

As I stated yesterday, this week we are finishing our work on the animation clip ‘Ruin’. If you watch the clip all the way until the end, you realise that there are a lot of unanswered questions – who is this character? Who does he work for? Is he a hero or a villain? How did he get his powers?

Today, I would like you to use your powers of deduction to decide the answers to some of these questions. There are no right or wrong answers, as long as you have based your ideas on the things you have seen in the clip. Your work today will act as a plan for some writing tomorrow. The more detail you include today the easier writing will be tomorrow!

TASK – Please see the activity ‘Ending Planning Frame’ on Google Classroom – there you will find a planning sheet that I would like you to complete.

Interested to see what your ideas are about our character – Mrs B ðŸ˜Š

PSHE

Hello Year 6 – I’m sure that you would have found some of yesterday’s photoshopped images to be quite thought provoking. I hope that you now understand that comparing yourselves and others to these images can be quite damaging. We are all real, incredible people - there is no need to compare ourselves to ideas that are unattainable!

So moving on from yesterday’s lesson, we are going to discuss how we can identify images that have been altered or changed. There are some hints and tips to help you spot a faked image in the links below – but under the supervision of an adult, Googling ‘Photoshop fails’ can bring up some hilarious, and obvious results.

TASK – Take a look through the links below. After you have read the information, complete the task on Google Classrooms. Under the topic ‘PSHE’, you should see the task ‘A Guide to Spotting Altered Images’. When you clock on the activity, it eill open a preview – please click a button at the top of the page that says ‘Open with Google Docs’.

History

So World War 2 has started, Britain and Allied forces have declared war on Germany, armies are readied and then..... no real fighting happened!  Between September 1939 (after Germany invaded Poland) and May 1940, no major fights occurred and it led to this part of World War 2 being labelled as the "Phoney War" - as in a fake war.

Then in September 1940, Germany launched a prolonged aerial attack on Britain which would last for almost a year - one period of time actually included 11 weeks of daily bombing!

Watch the video on the website below to see what the Blitz was like. Then read "The Blitz Explained" to find out more about this period of time.

Using the information below and any more than you can find - create a poster explaining what to do when your hear the air-raid siren!
