Yr 6 Daily Tasks Week beginning 9 November


In Maths we are answering word problems based on all of our previous learning on fractions.
Read the questions carefully and make sure you look out for language that can indicate what operation you should be doing!

Today, we will be continuing to identify the features of our explanation/persuasive letter.

If you are able to, try out some of these features yourself. 

Remember, we are writing from the perspective of the German government, trying to convince the Danish citizens that you are there to help.

We are continuing to subtract fractions! This time, mixed numbers from mixed numbers.

Have a good day.

In English we will be analysing the exemplar below. We will then discuss the features.

The features to analyse are:
Emotive (friendly) language
Hidden threat
"Us and them" language
Causal conjunctions
Opinions disguised as facts

In Maths, we will be continuing to subtract fractions, this time from mixed numbers.


We hope that you are well and look forward to seeing you soon.

In class, we are researching the Treaty of Versailles and British and French colonisation. These things were used by Germany to justify their actions during WWII.

By the end of next week, you will be tasked with writing an explanation text, just like the leaflets that were dropped from the bomber planes in the first chapter of Hitler's Canary. You will need to make it seem like Britain and France are the "bad guys" and Germany are the "good guys".

In Maths we are continuing to learn about fractions, this week, subtracting fractions.

Our Enquiry lesson is on propaganda. Have a look at the lesson and design your own propaganda poster from either the British or German perspective.

If you have any questions, please email your teacher.
