It’s Friday, which means it is test day!

English: A Bear called Paddington

Today, you are going to be focusing on writing the dilemma, resolution and ending of your story. You can choose the write it by hand, or type it on a computer…the choice is yours. You will need to:

  • Organise your writing into paragraphs
  • Vary the start of your sentences (ISPACE)
  • Description: Include detail to interest the reader: think carefully about what you need to describe, and your choice of vocabulary. You are writing for a younger audience (6-8 year-olds), so try to use words they will understand, and think about what detail they would like to know about.  (adjectives, expanded noun phrases, similes, adverbs etc)
  • Relative clauses. Think back to your work earlier this week, can you include some relative clauses within your writing?  
  • Punctuation: obviously you should be using CAPITAL LETTERS AND FULL STOPS, but also try to include commas, semi-colons, brackets, and if including speech, inverted commas.

I can’t wait to read how your chapter develops!

 

Maths:

Having listened to your feedback from last week, some of you preferred the white rose maths, and some preferred the NCETM videos. So, I am going to offer a choice. You can either do the white rose or  the NCETM videos. There is no right or wrong option, it is what best suits you. Either lesson will benefit your child.

NCETM Year 5/6

Lesson 10: Revise the language of ‘factor,’ ‘multiple’ and ‘common factor’

Friday Fun Family Challenge:

Work together as  a family to become awesome problem solvers! If this is in the original format (not yet online at time of posting- 13:40 if you were wondering!) some challenges are easier than others. They do get progressively harder (Up to year 9 level…so if you struggle with questions 6 and above, don’t panic!). See how many of the problems you can solve… parents can also help! (The problems are the same for year 5 and 6, so clicking on either link will take you to the relevant challenge: Summer term, week 9: Friday Maths challenge).
