Week Beginning 30th March
We hope your first week of learning from home has gone well. You are a super year group and we know that you will be managing brilliantly during these tricky times. It has been super to see all of the fantastic work you have been doing on Education City and Times Tables Rockstars. We have put up some more ideas of fun things to do at home in the 'Home Learning Updates' tab so please do have a look at that.
We are setting three days’ worth of work this week as Thursday is the start of the Easter holidays. For the days in the holidays, obviously we won’t be setting work but you are very welcome to use any of the resources on this page or on the 'Home Learning Updates' tab.
Our only request over the holiday is that you keep going with exercising regularly (the year 6 teachers have been doing the Joe Wicks PE lessons!), reading lots and communicating with each other!
- Activity 1: Listen to Chapter 1 of ‘Black Beauty’ https://stories.audible.com/pdp/B006OCAOMW?ref=adbl_ent_anon_sc_pdp_pc_0 and answer the comprehension questions (attached at bottom of this page)
- Activity 2: Add the following terms to your grammar dictionary: subordinating conjunction, co-ordinating conjunction, modal verb. For each term, provide multiple examples (within sentences) and a definition. You can use this website to help you https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zhrrd2p
