Good Morning Unicorns!
What did the left eye say to the right eye?
Between us, something smells.
Join me at 9:00am for our Zoom – today we shall share reflection together and look at the day we have planned ahead.
The theme this week is compassion.
First of all have a go at these Arithmetic questions:
LO: to know decimals up to three decimal places.
Today will be the start of a new unit on decimals, to begin I think it is a good idea for some revision from work you covered in Year 5. For a recap watch the first two videos: ‘Decimals up to 2 decimal places’ and ‘ Understand Thousandths’ https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/week-1-number-decimals/
Remember to stop/pause the video when you are asked to have a good at the questions.
After can you move on to Today’s lesson: ‘Three decimal places’ Follow the link again and be sure to watch the correct video. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/week-1-number-decimals/.
The worksheets to accompany today’s lesson can be found at the bottom of the page in today’s documents along with the answers too. For some children the challenge of all three videos will be enough – you know how hard to push yourselves so if you can complete the worksheet then please give it a go.
Spend some quiet time enjoying your own reading book today – read for 30 minutes.
Begin today by re-watching Episode one of our Macbeth animation ‘Weird Sisters’ - https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks2-macbeth-ep1/zfqv8xs
Today I have a picture taken from the ‘Shakespeare’s Stories’ book that I read from yesterday – Look at the picture in detail. Imagine you are Macbeth and Banquo. Returning back to the castle after your deadly battle, walking through the dark, miserable Scottish moors – What can you see? What can you hear? What can you taste? What can you smell? What can you feel/touch?
Can you create a senses table like this one here? If you have the facilities at home you could print the picture off and write your ideas around it instead. It is up to you.
LO: develop ideas for a describing setting by exploring the senses.
the gloomy sky
like a crack in a
A wisp of mist
day’s last rays.
A distant cackle shot through Macbeth’s mind.
Treading softly on the mossy moor, an owl hooted in the bare trees above.
The smell of death hung in the air like a coat of stench.
As the witches spat out their vile words, a stale vapour erupted from their sore, encrusted lips.
The sour taste of bloody battle lingered in Macbeth’s mouth.
His feet sank into the soft earth as if some poor deadly souls were dragging him below.
Join me at 12:00pm for our Zoom call before lunch. Today I will be making links between our work in English and History – sharing what life was like when Shakespeare was alive.
During Shakespeare’s life, two monarchs (Kings or Queens) reigned in England: Queen Elizabeth I (reigned 1558- 1603) and King James I (1603-1625). If we talk about the time when Elizabeth was on the throne, we call this the Elizabethan period. When we talk about when James was on the throne, we call this the Jacobean period.
This is also a crossover between two periods in History called ‘The Tudors’ and ‘The Stuarts’. The start of the Tudors(1485-1603) goes back a long time before Shakespeare was born. But I think it is really good to know about both societies and what life was like.
LO: to know key dates, characters and events of a period of time studied.
Take a look at this website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/history-the-tudors/zkgyhbk Choose some different clips to watch to investigate what life was like during the Tudor Period.
Mrs Harrison has been busy working on some art projects for you this term and here is the first. Based on the ‘Three Witches’ or ‘Weird Sisters’ from Macbeth.
LO: to independently choose tools and media to create my own art piece.
The instructions for the lesson can be found at the documents below –And a big thank you to Mrs Harrison too. I know you will all really enjoy having a go at this.
Half way through the first full week already- seems crazy! Remember to stay in touch via email : firstname.lastname@example.org
