Hello Year 6,

Welcome back!  I hope you and your families are all safe and well and had a relaxing Easter break.

So, now’s the start of your final term as year 6.  Wow! How did we get here so quickly?  It seems strange that we won’t back at school together tomorrow.  I’ve received some fabulous poems, creative writing and book reviews (thank you) and I can see that you’re working hard on My Maths, Reading Plus, SPaG and Spelling Shed.

As year 6, this is a significant term, which should help you prepare for high school, so it is really important that you continue to plan some learning time into each day.  Remember, you can organise your daily timetable to suit you and your family and you must remember to do some of the fun tasks I gave you too (DearYear6).

Your home learning tasks for week beginning April 20th are below.  If you have any questions or need any login details, please email me through Purple Mash and I will reply as soon as I can.

Have a good week.

Angles

This week we’re continuing with angles.  If you have a protractor at home – great – if not, don’t worry, as many of the questions can be answered without one. Visit https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ summer term, week 1.  You can either print the worksheet (if you have access to a printer), complete it and stick it into your maths book or record your answers directly into your books.   Make sure that you watch the video clips first to help with understanding.

Monday Lesson 1: Vertically opposite angles (protractor only needed for question 1)
Tuesday Lesson 2: Angles in a triangle (protractor only needed for question 1)
Wednesday Lesson 3: Angles in a triangle – special cases (no protractor needed)
Thursday Lesson 4: Angles in a triangle – missing angles (no protractor needed)
