Monday 1st February

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!


Today is the start of the penultimate week of term 3......can anyone let me know what penultimate means?


This week we are starting a new maths unit on converting measures and continuing on with our English story - Treasure Island!

Remember to start your day with a PE activity and make sure you spend some time on TT Rockstars and MyOn.


Remember to check Miss Sexton's page for our work of the week assembly!


You are going to be starting your new unit on converting measures.  This is something you would have learnt about in other year groups through school.

It is really important that you use your place value and remember the rules for x and divide.


Watch this video from Miss Hart as a recap for the week:

Year 6 - converting units of measure

This is "Year 6 - converting units of measure" by Westcourt School on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

You will need the sheets in your pack called 'metric measures'.  Remenber to do the VF first and then move on t the PS/R.

When you are converting measures, partiulalry with your reasoning, remember to convert them to the same measure - this will really help you to recognise and compare your numbers.


Always write the unit of measure...........otherwise I could assume you mean fluffy dice or pink bananas laugh

Use these pictures to help remind you of the conversions:

Guided Reading:

Today you are continuing to develop your guided reading skills by reading the short extract of the Hobbit.

Answer the questions carefully and remember that all the information can be found within the text.

Sometimes the picture gives us good clues too!


Last week we had started to listen to part 3 of Treasure Island. 


Here it is again as a reminder.  Whilst you watch and listen to it, continue with the story map you started last week - this way as we continue to go through it you can remind yourself of what has happened to far. 

Treasure Island: Long John Silver and the Hispaniola | BBC Teach

Your English task today is to plan a recount about Jim's first day in Bristol, where he meets Long John Silver and then boards the Hispaniola (DO NOT WRITE THE RECOUNT TODAY).


Just like when we are in school break your plan down into sections.  This is how I would do it:


1 - arriving in Bristol and seeing how busy the dock is

2 - meeting Long John Silver and Jim's first impression of him

3 - going on the small sail boat with Long John Silver up to the Hispaniola

4 - boarding the Hispaniola and meeting the crew

5 - climbing the rigging and watching the provisions being brought on board

6  - setting sail on the adventure of a life time!


For each section, make bullet point notes on how you would feel if you were Jim.  Watch the video as many times as you need to get his impression at the different stages of this section of the story.

Make sure you have enough notes to be able to write tomorrow.


We are continuing with our learning on the human body and our circulatory system.  


Now you have learnt all about the organs on Purple Mash it is time to learn how they are all kept safe within our bodies.  


In your packs find this sheet:

Our skeleton does an amazing job - it keeps us 'together'!


Use search engines safely to find out about the different bones that make up our skeletons and label the diagram.


Watch this video to get you started:

The Skeletal System - Educational Video about Bones for KIds

Have a fantastic day and remember to email me pictures of your wonderful learning.

If you get stuck on anything just ask and I'll get back to you.


This week is national story telling week, so check back here once you have done all your learning and we will have an at home 3 o'clock read laugh
