Maths

Today we are looking at calculating the area of a triangle & a parallelogram. They are fairly simple to work out once you know the formula. To find the area of a triangle you do height x width and then divide that answer by 2. This is because a triangle is half the size of a rectangle.

To find the area of a parallelogram, you again times the height by the length - similar to a rectangle!
Complete the worksheet below (it is also on Teachermade via Google Classroom).

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.

Heya Year 6! Hope that everyone is keeping well! This will be our last writing session before half term – can you believe it? To finish this term’s writing, we are going to write our letters of complaint.

Yesterday, I was glad to see the detailed plans that some of you had produced – that will make today’s task much easier! Now that you have a plan and a structure for your letter, now we just need to look at the language that we should use.

Take a look at my example in the links below – it is a letter of complaint to a company that have sold me a television with a strange quirk! If you see any language that you like or could adapt for your own, feel free to make a note of it!

TASK – We will be using our blue books, so please write today’s date and an ‘E’ in the margin. The title is, ‘Black Hole Letter of Complaint’.

Today I would like you to write your letter of complaint to the manufacturer of the photocopier that printed the Black Hole. You are to imagine that you are the company manager that almost lost a large sum of money, so the tone should be quite disgruntled! Use your plan and my example to help you.

Can’t wait to read them! Mrs Brant ðŸ˜Š

RE

Key Question: Is anything ever eternal?

Title: Heaven and Eternity

Mrs Riley has set us our RE work as usual today. Look at the questions to discuss with an adult at home:

Christians believe that Jesus was resurrected so that they could have an eternal life. What do you think about this?

How do Christians get to Heaven?  Can everybody go to Heaven?

Read the parable of the sheep and the goats below (Matthew 25: 31-46).

Can people who have not done good deeds go to Heaven?  How do they feel about this?

Christians believe that for eternal life they need to believe in God, do their best to follow the Ten Commandments and ask for forgiveness when they need it.

Can a non-Christian go to Heaven?

Is going to Heaven a Christian’s only motivation for doing good things?

Activity:

1. Answer the questions on the sheet as fully as you can giving your own thoughts and ideas.

2. Write a paragraph to answer our key question. Use everything you have learnt about over

Log back into Google Classroom for a live reading of our class reader "Blitzed" by Robert Swindells. See what happens next with George and his adventure!

Make sure you are logged in by 12:50pm to ensure you don't miss any of the story!

Having explored rationing in the UK, today we are going to have a go at making an item of food that became a staple in War Time Britain: the national loaf!

Watch the video below before using the recipe to try and make it. Let me know what you think of it!
