Brave Young Minds, how did you get on with the last 2 videos? I believe it will enable you to consolidate your learning about angles. Most of you are developing your skills in using the protractor to measure and draw angle.

Please keep using this blog to help you catch up on learning.

Today we will look at FACTORS. Please watch video and pay close attention as this will help you when we start working with fractions.

Over the weekend I will publish some of the work you have been doing in class.

Monday 14th September 2020. The adults of St Joan of Arc class welcome you and your parents to our class blog. We are ‘The Brave Young Minds’ and we hope we will work hand-in-hand for the benefit of our children.

I shall be using this blog to publish some homework videos, research and publication of some of the work we will be doing in class. We do hope you will find the time to view some of the activities we post here! From today, 14th Sept your child will be encouraged to go on the MyMaths web page to complete quizzes set for the week. PE is on Tuesday and Friday every week and I encourage children to put on the correct kit for each lesson (navy-blue/black jogging bottoms, a white polo T-Shirt and a pair of trainers/plimsolls). We wish you a fun-filled and enjoyable time in year 6.

Kids, watch the video below on decimals. Please ignore the phrases, ‘Carry over’ and ‘Borrow’. Remember it’s ‘EXCHANGE’.

Monday 20th July

Good morning Brainstorms. This is officially your last set of tasks. 2020 has been a year to remember. I have missed the business of what the ‘End of Year’ should have been like; with end of KS2 performance, party and Leavers’ service where most of you would have been shedding tears, saying goodbye to your friends and school. Never mind! We pray that things will get better and school will reopen in September. The school wishes you all the best for the future.

Here are your final tasks!

 

English: Using the books Percy Jackson and the Lightning ThiefA Pocketful of Stars and The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, you will reflect on how the books are read by the celebrity readers.

Friday 17th July

Good morning Brainstorms. Here we are, a couple more days to the end of your primary education at St John’s; Monday will officially be your last day but your last day at school is today, so I will be uploading your last set of tasks. I can’t believe it! How we will never forget 2020 in a hurry. Hope your night was peaceful!

Today’s Task….

English: SPAG REVISION. In this lesson, you will be reminded of key elements in grammar. You will always need them, so continue using them in your writing.

Maths: Averages

You hear the word average used a lot in everyday life. You may be ‘average height’ or know the ‘average amount of sweets in a packet is 20.’

In Maths, one type of average is called the mean.

To find the mean, you add up all the numbers and divide by the amount of numbers.
