Hi Year 6!
It's Aoife here again! I hope you are well on this Wednesday morning and ready for some more learning!
I logged on to Purple Mash today and it was really fun seeing your posts and comments. Remember to keep posting your work. Salma, Clare and I love to see it.
Here is the last extract from Malala's book that we are going to read together. It describes Malala's last day at school. Read through the whole text and then have a go at answering the questions below.
1. Make a list of any new or unfamiliar words from the text. Use a dictionary to write a definition of at least three words from the text.
2. Why do you think Malala's father didn't want the documentary makers to film at their home?
3. How does Malala feel about 'girls who quit school to cook and clean'? Do you feel the same way as Malala?
4. In the final line, Malala's father said they would 'stand by her in this time of trouble.' What does he mean by this?
Today we are going to use our problem solving skills to practise some algebra.
Remember to use the information you have to help you to find the missing values.
Now have a go at these:
If you feel like a challenge, you could have a go at making your own algebraic puzzle for your friends to solve. Make sure to give them just enough information to solve it but not so much that it is too easy. You could post it on Purple Mash for your friends to try!
Make a gratitude alphabet!!
