Battle 6HB .vs. 6B All day
 
Extra Task
Creating ambition and goals.
You have a wide range of knowledge and skills which one day you will want to use in a fulfilling job- something you will enjoy. You don’t have to decide now- but a little research helps to keep you motivated to learn and be the best version of yourself. I know many of you have ideas about what you would like to be, from police officers to vets, newspaper editors to electricians- every job is important and worthwhile. 
 
1) I would like you to think about what you would like to do as a job when you are older. If you aren’t sure- choose a job you might like to do or would like to know more about. Here is a comprehensive list for ideas:
2) List the skills you think you would need to be good at that job.
3) Research the skills you would need for the job.
4) Write down how you could develop/ learn them.
5) How much would you earn?
6) What qualifications would you need to achieve? 
7) What are the advantages of that job?
 
There are a range of informative sites which can help you with this task. 
 
Have a great day!

Good morning 🙂,
Yesterday a few of you sent me your first draft. It would be great to see more.
PE
Over the next four days, I would like you to choose at least one indoor activity from the Disney themed exercises. I am going to try the Jungle Jig and Helping Heihei later. Helping Heihei looks particularly fun and great for developing communication, direction and problem solving skills!
Topic
Please see attachment/ photos at the bottom of this email. Today you are familiarising yourself with how to use the Stop Motion Animation app. I have attached step by step guidance.
Today I would like you to try and make a sequence of simple frames. Experiment with the size of movements, number of frames and ideas/ backdrop.
Tomorrow you will be planning a short story with a little plot.
Maths
Please log into LBQ to complete the activity converting between different units of volume/ capacity. It would be useful to explore different volumes in the kitchen if you look at a measuring jug.
How many millilitres of water does a mug hold?
What would this be in litres?
How many litres of water does a bowl hold?
Code: kdb (Just Task 2)
English
Today I would like you to re-read your writing from yesterday and edit it:
Have you used ambitious vocabulary?
Did you use ‘show not tell’ to emphasise the characters feelings?
Are both paragraphs fully punctuated?
Have you emphasised the change in tone and exaggerated the mood once Mr Blue appears?
Did you use conjunctions to emphasise the change?
Are your sentences varied in structure- parenthesis, main & subordinate?
Have you used any rhetorical questions of advanced punctuation such as semi colons to separate clauses?
Please send me a copy of your writing as soon as you are confident it is the best it can be.
REMEMBER the best writing will be chosen and you could win a prize and certificate!
Reading
Please log into read theory for 30 minutes.
Have a wonderful day! Please remember to send me your work, videos and photos of anything interesting you have been doing.

Good morning, 
 
I hope you had a fantastic weekend! 
Today (& this week) I have a range of exciting activities planned. 
 
PE
Let’s start the week with mindful stretching and exercise: Cosmic Yoga

 

 
English
Please see today’s writing video. You are tasked with writing based on ‘Mr Blue Sky’. Use today’s weather to inspire your first paragraph.
This has been attached to this email and uploaded to our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/dgk9VTHkdVo 

 

The music video you need to watch when asked during the session. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8dsvclf3Tk
 
Maths 
See attachment for conversion activity. See final page for the answer.
 
Spelling Shed
Complete today’s assignment! 
 
Computing/ Technology
This week you are going to be working on a stop motion animation project. 
It really is lots of fun and quite simple if you follow the steps each day. 
 
Today I would like you to research and prepare for the activities this week. 
 
What is stop motion animation?
How does it work?
Which famous animations use this technology?
What do you think you would like to make using Stop Motion Animation technology? 
Watch my example (2nd time trying) https://youtu.be/XZZ55NpDx60 How could I make it better? What worked well?
 

 

 
This week you will need to use a phone/ tablet with a camera, therefore you may need to ask to borrow one from a trusted adult at home. 
 
Today all you need to do in preparation is download the free ‘Stop Motion Animation’ app (see icon above) from Apple or Android. 
Tomorrow I will be sharing a guide on how to get started. 
You can use toys, food or even drawings to create your own short animation!
Another idea: some people use paper & drawings to create stop motion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo6-6ENTl7o

 

 
Have a great day! 
 
Mrs Hayton-Brooke 😄
