Hi Year 6, I hope you are safe and well. Well done to the children that completed the work on this blog. However, I was a little disappointed that a few of you did not complete any work. All blogs must be completed. They are there to help you with you learning.

The following children who work with me please complete the work I set for you. There will be a variety of my blogs during the week. Please try to complete the work. All work MUST completed in your homework books and upload to the link below. Please could you comment on this blog to say you have done the work. All work **MUST** be completed and I will be checking.

The following children are to complete the appropriate work depending on which group you are in.

**English Group **

Scarlett Hafsa Hannah Reyan M Sabrin Saifullah Sarina Samantha Hasnain Paris Aaron Rifath

**Maths group**

Sabrin Sarina Saskia Riqbah Hafsa Scarlett Ryan Hannah Paris Hasnain Adela Keira

**English**: I would like you to create a poster of the monster from A Monster Calls and describing it using figurative language.

What is Figurative language? **Figurative language is a form of the English language, which writers use to express an idea or a thought, dramatically and drastically.** **It helps to make your writing powerful and interesting to keep the reader engaged.**

For example… describing the monster…. his trunk transformed into a body…. How can I make this better… The magnificent, umber-brown trunk transformed into a muscular body with muscles protruding from every angle, twisting and curling around his body like a snake. Here I have used powerful words and used a simile to describe the monster.

Here is a poster to help you.

Here is an example of a poster I would like you to create describing your monster. You can write sentences/phrases on your poster answering the questions on the poster. I want to see all those features when describing your monster…How he looks, walks, speaks, feels etc. Write one sentence. You can then use these sentences when writing about your monster.

**Maths**: In Maths we have been learning about adding fractions. If you watch my video where I have explained about comparing fractions. The same applies when you are adding fractions with different denominators. The denominators have to be the same and then you can add. If the denominators are the same then you don’t have to change them, you simply just add them.

Have a go at these.

**Challenge:** Here we are adding 3 fractions. The same rule applies. Change the denominators so they are equal.

Ms Janjua like you said on the zoom call if i want extra work i can ask you some so could i have some fraction questions for example ; 1/2 x 4

Hafsa I have checked your work and you have not done anything i asked for. Please read my blog and try again. I did not ask you to tell me what the story was about. I would like you to write phrases describing the monster using figurative language.

Well done Samantha for completing your English work. Can you use a metaphor to describe your monster?

I have finished my poster and I am going to send it in now.

Miss if I do maths and English in this group do I still have to do Mrs Cochrane work on math and English I am not sure

Yes you still have to do that work too. Do that first then complete this. You have a week to do this work. This is extra work to support you Hannah. I have checked your work. Your maths is good but you have not shown your working out. In English you have used repetitive simple words to explain the monster. You have used no figurative language. Look at my examples on the page. Please have another ago and read carefully what you are suppose to do. Well done for completing the work but I know you can do better.

I have done my English work and I am going to send it

I have done my maths I will send it now

I have sent my work

Well done Sabrin, you have answered the maths questions correctly. A good try with the English but you have not used figurative language. Look at my examples on the page. Read my page again and have another go. You have used on simile but can you make it better.

I have done maths

Well done Riqbah… You found number 7 difficult. 2/10 + 2/4 =

What is the lowest common denominator in both of these tables.

Let’s look at the denominator 10 and go through the tables… 10, 20. m going to stop there as I know 20 is in the 4 times table… 4, 8,12,16,20

Next step change 2/10 to the denominator 20… 1 x 2 = 20 2 x 2 = 4 which equals 4/20 Now do the same to 2/4…. 4 x 5 = 20 5 x 2 = 10

which equals 10/20 Now add them together 4/20 + 10/20 which equals 14/20…. can you simplify it. Now try the others.

Thank you Mrs Janjua I now understand what to do for those two questions.

You are well come. Have another go at the maths and send it back to me.

Mrs Janjua I have got the email.

I have finished my English work and sent it.

You have worked hard and written some great phrases. Which was your favourite?

Well done Scarlett. Your handwriting is a little difficult to read but I managed it. I like the phrase you wrote.. The ground moaned with each stride. Well done… Which technique is this?

I have completed my work and sent it

You have worked hard today. Which was your favourite phrase/ sentence?

Well done Ebraheem. I was really impressed with your work. it as hard to read your writing. You said ‘his feet and legs ??? of the ground…. can you improve this by using a simile?

I finished and i will send it in soon

Saskia, well done for completing you work. You have found the common denominator for one fraction but not found the common denominator of the other one. You are suppose to find both the denominators and then add them. Look at the reply I wrote for Riqbah. You are finding the denominators correctly.

I have done a task from the maths questions and I will upload it to the share point.
