Tuesday 2nd February
Don't forget to have regular breaks throughout the day - get up and walk around. Drink plenty of water and make sure that you end the day doing something that will make you smile!
Also don't forget to use the mindfulness breathing techniques that we spoke about yesterday if you are feeling anxious or overwhelmed.
Guided reading (as a class)
Don't forget that we'll be doing guided reading together at 9 so have your books and pencil ready and make sure your brain is switched on! You can find the link to the reading text here:
In today's lesson, you will do doing a number of activities.
1) Complete the spelling lesson on oak academy. Be sure to write all 10 of the words down and practice these each day.
2) Take 5 of these words and put them into sentences. Don't forget - you are Year 6's so NO SIMPLE SENTENCES ALLOWED!!!! Challenge yourself: Add a non-finite clause, a relative clause or some some adverbs. Try and also include some of the amazing Mrs Wordsmith words that you've looked at in the last few weeks.
CHALLENGE: (2 Dojo points). Take the 10 words and create your own story - the most imaginative one wins!
Rounding to a required degree of accuracy Pupils start this lesson by considering why estimates and rounding might be useful. They explore rounding 7-digit numbers to the nearest multiple of 100,000 with varying degrees of accuracy.
As always, extra challenges can be found on the Emmanuel website (see the link at the bottom of this post)
If you've given this a go and are still unsure, why not give this lesson a go:
In this lesson, we will be using number lines to round 5-digit numbers to the nearest multiple of 10 000 and the nearest multiple of 1000.
