English

Today you need to write a paragraph in a formal style to summarise why the highwayman can be considered a bad person.

Look at this example where a paragraph is written about Hades, the god of the dead and king of the underworld in Greek mythology. He is also a character in the Disney film ‘Hercules’ which some of you may have watched.  

Think carefully about how to introduce an idea and support it with evidence. These sentence starters will help you to vary your writing. Can you see which ones Miss Underwood used in her example?

You can also look at this as a reminder of the features you should always be aiming to include in any piece of writing.

Maths

We are going to continue our work on angles using the White Rose resources. Click here to visit the Year 6 area of their website. Today you need to complete Summer Term Week 1 Lesson 4 (Angles in a triangle - missing angles).

Watch the video and then answer the questions by clicking on the ‘Get the Activity’ tab to download the worksheet. Don’t worry if you can’t print it, just write the answers in your home learning book. 

You can check your answers on the same page where the video is saved under ‘Get the Answers’.

Topic (Computing)

Look at the BBC Bitesize activity ‘What are viruses and malware?’.

Another way to protect yourself online is to check websites are secure.

Work through this presentation.

There is also a word search for you to complete. Why not try and create your own if you are not able to access the Internet for very long today?
