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

Today we are looking at a more traditional part of algebra.

Whenever you see a letter it algebra, it simply means that the letter is a missing number. I always find it easier to simply say "something" than use the letter as it makes it less confusing. E.g. Rather than saying "x - 5 = 10", I would say "something - 5 = 10."

So most basic phrases like the one above we've actually been solving since Years 1 & 2, but there are some trickier elements added in now we are in Year 6. So for example, if we are asked the following quesion, this is how we would work it out.

3x = 21

Well we know that 3x means 3 lots of x. So this means 3 x "something" = 21. Well I know my three times tables so if divide 21 by 3, I will find out what X if worth. 21 dividied by 3 is 7. So x is worth 7.

3x - 10 = 5

So slightly harder but just 2 steps still. We know that 3x means 3 lots of "something". So this actually reads as 3 lots of something, take away 10 gives us 5. So the first thing we can do is add 10 to our 5 to work out what 3 lots of something equals. 10 + 5 = 15 so 3x = 15. Then (like we did above), divide 15 by 3 to find what 1x is worth which would be 5.

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! Great work on speech yesterday – loved some of your excuses too!

So today we are going to turn the statements into a police incident report. This will require us to switch from formal to informal writing. The police will always write in a formal way, but a suspect’s statement will be informal and chattier.

Take a look at my example below for a different chocolate related crime;

TASK – Today I want you to write a police incident report about the crimes that happen in the clip, ‘Black Hole’.

Please feel free to use my example and change the parts that you need to. We haven’t written one of these before, so use the template available on Google Classroom to structure your writing. Include some of the speech that you wrote yesterday, written as a statement, like the one above.

Look forward to seeing your reports!

Computing

Following on from the success of Scratch work, we are going to work on a new project in Scratch.

Scratch was updated in September and is now fully compatable on all computers and laptops however I would recommend using Google Chrome if you are on a laptop.

For today's task, load up Scratch online and this website below which has your step-by-step instructions. To load Scratch, click on the link to the website below as it has a preset character on there.

We are going to create Scratch cat goes Skiing game in Scratch, the information in the link below will show you an example of the game and give you all the steps to make it.

Work your way through the instructions using the green button at the bottom of the page to move onto the next steps.
