Good Morning Year 6,

P.E – As usual we would like you to start the day with some physical activity, so remember to tune in to Joe Wicks at 9am on his YouTube channel for his daily workout or if your up for a change try a few Just Dance songs.

Maths – This week we will be looking at week 2 on White Rose which focuses on angles in shapes such as quadrilaterals before ending the week with some problem solving.  Remember to watch the clip first for help before having a go at the worksheet, if you get stuck or need support, you can always email across to myself or Miss Wood for some extra guidance.  Today is lesson 2 – Angles in Polygons https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

Literacy including spelling work – Using the new Government initiative home schooling page developed by teachers – I thought we would follow week 1 which was set last week.

By the end of today’s session I want you to be able to identify inherited characteristic that are passed on from parent to offspring. Below I have attached a presentation for you to read and make notes from.  The second attachment is for you to find out the meaning of key words and the last attachment is a worksheet whereby you have to investigate the characteristics you have inherited from your parents by closely examining their photographs and your own. Write down what you think you have inherited from that parent. (For this task I will give you till Thursday)
