6th Class Blog
Tomorrow I will upload a Kahoot quiz on facts about Greece that you would have learned over the course of this week, it's not a test, just for fun.
You will be able to access the quiz and game PIN on the blog at 11:25am, I will begin the quiz at 11:30am for anybody that would like to play along. I know this time will not suit everybody so afterwards I will upload a link to the quiz if you would like to play yourselves at home.
Hope to have you there in the morning,
Today we are finishing off Pg. 106 Q3 in our Busy at Maths. Take your time with them, they may look a little more challenging but you know how to do them!
I also have some practice questions below, you can choose between revising what we've learned this week or the challenge page which involves creating an equation from a written problem. Pick the one that best suits you.
Keep up the great work,
Today we are looking at Pg. 106 Q1 and Q2. I hope yesterday's work went well. In Q1 today we are looking at when there is a minus in our equation and then in Q2 we have a mixture of equations to solve. Remember do the parts without a variable first, then isolate the variable on one side of the equation and solve.
I'm delighted with all the great work being sent on to the class email. Don't forget to share your Google Docs too.
Keep up the great work,
For anyone finding the Racing Ahead reading very challenging or anyone just wanting to check out some new books I've created a class login for the Oxford Owl free eBook library.
You can access it by clicking on the link below
At the top of that page click on My Class Login - it's a pink button with an owl on it.

There are some lovely online books in the e-library. You might like to use the lower levels to do some shared reading with a younger sibling.
Answers to Week 27 of MYM below. They were quite challenging this week!
Sorry folks I had the wrong pages down for your questions this week. The activities for The Dark Triangle are on Pgs. 210 and 211. Apologies!
Today we are continuing with Pg. 105 in our Busy at maths. Again we are looking at solving equations.
In Q4. we have to read a written problem, form our equation and then solve it. Although you might know the answer to the equation by simply reading the problem, the focus of this question is on forming the equation not just solving for the variable so make sure you write the equation too. They are a little challenging so in the final video below I have worked through an example of each one. My advice would be to watch the video clip one example at a time pausing to solve the equation in the book after each one. Equations play a big part of the maths course in secondary school so it's important to take your time with these to ensure you fully understand them.
If you would like to practice or more of a challenge Khan Academy have some below, they also have videos explaining how to find the solution if you're stuck.

Keep up the good work!
As I mentioned in the blog for this week we are continuing the unit on equations and variables. We will look at half a page each day as I want to make sure you all fully understand each part before we move on. This morning we are taking Pg. 105 Questions 1 and 2. Have your book open to help you as we move along.
Here's an online game to practice what we learned last week :
Try your best!
I can’t believe it’s the last week of April already. Hope you’re all keeping safe and well. Keep up the great work again this week!
Research Greek recipes and cook some Greek food
Create a tourist brochure to attract visitors to Greece
Plan a holiday in Greece- Where would you go? What would you do?

As I’ve said before don’t feel like you must complete all of these activities, do what you can, remember you all work in different ways. It’s fantastic to see all the great work on the class email. Remember if you want to photograph anything and send it on please do! Or you can share your work on Google docs.
If you have any questions you can email me on email@example.com
Have a good week,
Thanks to anybody who has completed work on Google Docs and Google Slides, I'm really enjoying reading through your work. Be sure to check back for feedback at the bottom.
We have been using the sixth class Google Docs since the start of the year and there are well over 500 different documents on it. At times it can be easy to miss a document so if you would like to share work that you have completed and receive some feedback from me please complete the following steps:
1) Click on the Share button in the top right corner of your document (see the picture blow)
2) A box will pop up to give your document a title
3) After that another box will pop up asking for the email you wish to share with- choose firstname.lastname@example.org
This will email me to tell me that you have requested I view your work and means I won't miss out on seeing anything. You can also do this from your own personal Google Docs too. I know some of you have been doing this already and it works well.
Thanks in advance this will really help me out instead of searching through Google Docs looking for your work.
