Year 6 2.6.20

Good Morning Year 6, let’s get Tuesday going 🙂

Literacy: Letter of Complaint: Reading focus

In this lesson, we will make inferences and support them using evidence from the text.

PSHE: Your country needs you – In today’s lesson, the Prime Minister has contracted COVID-19 through shaking hands during his official work. We must step up as his Deputy Prime Minister to lead the country by way of a formal public letter of guidance. The lesson works towards creating leaders – where we must think about how to provide the most relevant information in order that it influences people to act responsibly, collectively, and effectively. This guidance as a leader will help reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, thereby saving lives!

Maths: Today we are going to be multiplying decimals by integers.  Take a look at the clip to support your learning.


Science: What is the Theory of Evolution?

In today’s lesson we look at Darwin’s observations from his trip on the HMS Beagle. We will then put all his observations together to see how Darwin came up with his theory. His theory is called evolution. We will apply this new knowledge to two other examples of evolution, mice and giraffes.
