Good morning Year 6! Here is the work and activities for this week. The instructions for each day are below, followed by all of the attachments you will need. Each day you have been given a maths, English and 'other subjects' lesson - try your hardest, but if you need a little bit of help you could always ask an adult or email the Year 6 account - email@example.com
Before you watch the video, think about when we use inverted commas (“”). How do we use them correctly? Why do we use them and what do they show?

Think back to what you already know about the Amazon. Have a look at the PowerPoint below to remind you of what we have learned so far. Create your own PowerPoint to explain this information. If you haven’t got PowerPoint, how about a poster instead?!
Look at the PowerPoint attached and think about the differences between reported and direct speech. Then, complete the worksheet, putting in the missing inverted commas.

Continue with your PowerPoint from yesterday! Can you add pictures? Have you made it exciting to look at? Try and upload it to Microsoft Teams so we can see it!
When people use speech in their writing, often they use the word ‘said’. Using a thesaurus (or an online one!), find better words for ‘said’. Brainstorm these using a mind-map.

Today, have a go at some art! We would like you to create a silhouette picture of the rainforest. Use water colour/crayons/paint/pens for the background in blues and greens. Then, using black paper/card (or on white paper coloured in black), cut out the silhouettes of trees and/or animals – look at the examples on the PowerPoint below for inspiration!
Complete the worksheet attached where you need to spot the mistakes that the children have made when using speech in their sentences.

Today, Year 6 are celebrating Roald Dahl day! We have chosen to look at the BFG. One of the activities that we are doing in school involves making a dream jar. If you have a jar at home (and the other resources), you could make a real one of these by looking at this website:
Or use the paper template attached! Begin by writing your hopes and dreams on the lines, then illustrate to make it look magical! You could use glitter or tissue paper to decorate!
