Good Morning Unicorns!
Did you know?
Venus spins clockwise It’s the only planet that does!
Join me at 9:00am for our Zoom – today we shall share reflection together and begin to think about our English task for today.
The theme this week is compassion.
Using all the work we have done so far this week on the opening scene of Macbeth, looking at the setting and our work on describing the three witches. Your task today is to plan and draft your own scene description.
LO: to write a detailed draft description of the opening scene in our text.
As discussed in our Zoom call this morning – here is a model piece of writing for you to look at.
As the gloomy smoke of battle cleared, two triumphant soldiers appeared from the mist: Macbeth and Banquo. Mighty, fierce, noble Macbeth strode back through the barren heath with his trusted friend Banquo by his side.
The sky above peered down at the two warriors, its dark eye staring down at the blood-stained men –watching them closely. It was silent. The wind whistled across the empty moorland; in the distance naked trees whimpered like dead empty souls. Thunder and bright lightening wriggled through the clouds above like bright adders. Evil filled the air and its dark desires filled the hearts of both Macbeth and Banquo. Without warning, the two gentlemen came to an abrupt halt. Baring their path were three beastly, withered creatures: the three weird sisters…
When you have finished you can email your work directly across to me, whether you photograph it, scan it over or email the document if you have typed it up. I can then live mark the work for you today so that you can have it back in time for tomorrow’s lesson. The email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
List as many adjectives as you can to describe the witches in Macbeth. – Add to your work from Monday. It would be a good idea to use a thesaurus to develop your word bank.
Today is the second Arithmetic Test for this term – How did you get on last week? Join me for our Zoom at 12 where I will be looking at some of the questions from Today’s paper. The test is saved at the bottom of the page in today’s documents section.
We LOVE Arithmetic!
LO: multiply numbers and decimals by 10, 100, 1000.
Today’s lesson: ‘Multiply by 10, 100 and 1000’ https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/week-1-number-decimals/
Find the right video and watch carefully – work through the tasks on the video first of all. I am confident you will all do really well with today’s lesson. When you are ready move on to today’s worksheet – try your best to work independently. If you get stuck ask a grown up for help or you can email me.
Join me at 12:00pm for our Zoom call before lunch. The focus is our Arithmetic paper – you can join even if you have or haven’t completed it yet.
Explore this website with a grown- up – even your whole family if you can. Plan some adventures for you to have outside. https://www.1000hoursoutside.com/
Download one of the outdoor trackers and begin tracking the hours you spend outside. Year 6 Bubble (In school) - you can print off one of the outdoor trackers and record the time you spend outside for breaks/lunch etc too.
History and Art:
Yesterday you had quite a lot to be working on – did you manage to finish?
- If not then go back to Wednesday’s page and see what you have left to do.
- Finished your art work of the ‘Weird Sisters’? Please can you send a photo of you work to me so I can show Mrs Harrison? Try to evaluate your work – What went well? Are there elements you could improve on?
- Visit the History videos again – is there one more you can watch? Take notes.
