LO: To use dialogue punctuation and synonyms for 'said'.

Join me at 11am for a LIVE Padlet lesson, where we will make sure we are using correct punctuation for our a few fun words that we can use instead of 'said'.

Click on the link below to access the Padlet page.

If you are not able to join the live padlet lesson, you can add to it later on.

Here are some activities you could do to support your understanding of what we are covering in the live lesson, which you could do before you join at 11am, or instead of,  or whenever you are able.

1) Watch this video which explains dialogue punctuation and synonyms for 'said'

2) Can you add your own synonyms for said and dialogue punctuation? Use the synonyms poster to help you.


Year 5/6 LO: To Understand thousandTHS.

Start by watching the video which will explain the concepts being covered today. On the questions sheet you will need to look carefully at the images as they are quite small!  What the lesson is asking you to do, is to be able to show thousandths as other fractions and decimals. 

For example: 400/1000 is the same as 40/100 or 4/10 or 0.4.   


36/1000 is the same as 0.036

360/1000 is the same as 0.36



Year 6 LO: To form expressions (algebra but DON'T PANIC - algebra is just using shapes, symbols or letters to represent numbers and operations.

Eg,   If heart = 2     and    enlightened = 4, what are the answers to these?


heart + heart = ?

enlightened x enlightened = ?

enlightened - heart = ?

Sometimes it will look like this:   3heart =  ?   When the symbol is squashed next to a number like that, it means you have to multiply.  So 3heart is actually 3 x heart, which is 3 x 2 so the answer is 6.  What are the answers to these?

3heart + enlightened = ?

5enlightened - 3 =

Sometimes it might be like a fraction, such as enlightened/4.  This means divide it by 4. 

What would this be?



That's algebra in a simple explanation. Today we will be using letters x (but it's a fancy curved one) and y, a, p, m, b, d,  instead of hearts and light bulbs.  It doesn't really make any difference what we use, as long as you remember that it represents a mystery number!


Watch the video and then have a go at the questions.  Good luck!


As I explained last Tuesday, we know that practical science can be tricky for you to do at home.  I have posted the document from last week, below.  It contains a selection of science and engineering activities, which you should have a look through and pick from.   What you pick will depend on what you have around your houses, what you find interesting and what your parents feel is achievable.  


It's called 'science challenge bingo' because the second page is a bingo card!  The idea is to try and complete as many of the challenges as you can and tick the bingo box (and date it) when you've done it.  This means you should try to do as many as you can!  If you don't have access to a printer, why not make your own bingo card?  If you started it last week, choose another one or two to do.  Can anyone make a line or even complete the whole card?


It would be amazing to have some photos of the activities you complete, for the school website and even to send off to James Dyson to show him your amazing science and engineering learning.
