Did you know that decimals and fractions are related?

Just like fractions have equivalent fractions, decimals also have equivalent fractions.

It’s important to know how decimals are turned into fractions, because this helps us later on when we need to turn the decimals and fractions into percentages.

Topic: What makes a good computer game?

There are computer games for all age ranges and interests. You can play games on lots of devices including mobile phones, tablets, computers and consoles.

All games come from a basic idea that is then developed into a game.

Anyone can make a computer game.

Watch this short film to see a Year 6 class use the Scratch visual programming to create their own computer game.

Happy Easter Holidays! 

See the source image

We hope you can relax and have some fun over the holidays. We know it will feel a little bit different but hopefully it won’t be long until things return back to normal. We will not be setting any work over the holidays – have fun and relax. Why not try making these delicious Easter Nests?

To make chocolate nests:

  • Add 100g of butter, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 50g milk chocolate buttons and 75g of golden syrup in a bowl.
  • Microwave on high for 1.5mins and mix together.
  • Crumble 4 Shredded Wheat over the bowl and mix with rest of ingredients.
  • Place a generous spoonful in each of 12 bun case (the nests).
  • Press the centre of each nest down slightly to form a dip and place 3 chocolate mini eggs in each dip.
  • Chill for 30 minutes before serving.

If you do want to do something, remember you can still use Reading Plus, IXL (new passwords), TTRS or Mathletics but we won’t be setting any work for you.

Have a good Easter and if you decorate an egg, don’t forget to send us a picture on the school Facebook page.

Friday 3rd April

Well done everyone! It’s the end of your second week of home learning and you should be very proud.

Thursday 2nd April

Good morning year 6!

A few changes this week… Instead of setting our curriculum job on purple mash each day, we will be alternating between purple mash and some arty/ D&T tasks you can complete at home linked to our topics.

New addition… We will also be setting work on IXL Maths and English 3 times per week. You should be receiving your passwords soon but if you haven’t yet, don’t worry, you will be able to complete your activities when you get your log in and password. PLEASE STOP USING YOUR TRIAL IXL PASSWORD AS IT WILL STOP WORKING SHORTLY – YOUR NEW USERNAME/ PASSWORD WILL LAST FOR MONTHS. 

These extra online jobs are for you to complete in your own time – please do not feel like everything needs to be done each day!

Let’s start the day off with Joe Wicks…You can redo any of the sessions from last week too. (Although if your legs are anything like mine, you might need to take a rest!!!)

English/ PSHCE

We know it must be a tricky time for so many of you who are missing seeing and chatting to important people in your life like grandparents, other family members and friends. Why not try to fit this task into your day? I bet they would love to share a story with you!

Maths: Factors and Multiples Game

Miss Sparks loves this game! Can you make the longest chain possible where each number is a factor or a multiple of its predecessor. Each number may be used once only. Chains are bracketed in green. I think Miss Sparks once made a chain of 64 – can you beat her score?

https://nrich.maths.org/factmult/

ART: We were so impressed with your dragon art pictures that we thought we would share another session with you. This time we challenge you to create a robot shark…pencils ready??? Go!!!

Good morning Year 6! Thank you for all of your hard work last week- we particularly loved seeing the artwork you produced.

It would be wonderful if you could spend some time chatting to an adult about cities and countries in the British Isles and in the world. Google maps is always a useful place to start!
