Good Morning Year 6!
Once again we are halfway through the week.
At times the day/week seems to drag but then, before we know it, another week has flown by!
I have received some lovely photos of you doing various activities - take a look at Seth's science; rainbow colour. (see the photo slideshow)
How fabulous to see Adam in his Scouts uniform (and Mark and his Dad) at:
So let's start the morning with some morning maths and consolidate prior learning from Y5 and Y6.
WHITE ROSE MATHS - Angles
I had contacted the King Richard III centre in Leicester for us to visit as an end of term and end of project visit for Crime and Punishment, but obviously had to cancel when schools and public venues closed. They have recently sent me some links and some ideas for you to carry out and summarise your learning and conclude the topic.
What do we remember about King Richard III?
If you have forgotten some of the facts do not worry as you can watch the clip below to refresh your memory.
Then I would like you to complete the worksheet and after gathering lots of facts, I would like you to write a balanced argument about Richard III - was he a decent and honourable person, or not? There are many different versions of events in history - some of these are discussed in the clip so you can pinch some ideas from there. You can do your own research as well.
You can write your balanced argument on paper, on a PowerPoint, or however you wish to record it: a poster or 2 separate ones, a leaflet divided in 2 - for and against/pros and cons about Richard III - however you wish to present your argument/s.
We are going to start this work today and continue it on Thursday (and Friday too if you wish) - so you have plenty of time to plan ideas, gather information, research further independently, edit and improve before you write your final balanced argument.
Think about persuasive language and the features of a balanced argument - you could search for examples online.
