For the first week, I have decided to recap work you have been doing on ratio. Ratio is brand new in Year 6, and takes a bit of getting used to, so it worth going over it one more time. There might be some parts you find a bit easy because you've just done it, but that will help you to get settled into this new way of doing your work at home.
Each day, watch the video explanation, and then complete the worksheet in your book. If you can print off the sheet, that is great, but if not just draw out the questions. A bit of art practice!
I will put up the answers for you as soon as they have been published.
Remember, you can ask for help on the contact form or using the class blog!

I thought it would be nice to do some work on Harry Potter, as I know many of you are fans! This week, we will focus our work on the character of Hagrid, and a key part of the first Harry Potter book, where Harry meets Hagrid for the first time. Each day there will be a task to complete in your book, and we will have a discussion thread about Hagrid on the class blog on Thursday.
For your writing task on Friday, you have three choices:
- write this in your work book
- post it on the class blog thread that I will make
- email it to me for feedback. Any writing that is emailed to me will get feedback in response. I would LOVE to read some of your writing! You can email me by using the contact form, or sending it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
