Wednesday 25th November

Good morning Year 6,


As well as completing the activities attached below, please make sure that you spend 30 minutes using Reading Plus and that you spend 20 minutes using TT Rockstars to rehearse your times tables knowledge. Remember, send me the work that you are complete to the 'keep in touch' email address. 


Today, you need to carry on working on your information text about 'The Maya'. Today, you will be writing your second main paragraph. Use the information that you have researched for the second one of your headings and complete a well-written paragraph. You will need to include:

- a heading (question or statement - opposite to yesterday)

- a range of punctuation (including colons and semi-colons)

-a bullet-pointed list (including extension with brackets and dashes)

-a range of sentence starters.


We will continue to write your information text over the rest of this week and on Friday you will evaluate and edit your work. 


Today, you will need to use your research from yesterday to create a presentational piece of work to explain:

-Why maize was important to the Maya?

-Why chocolate was important to the Maya?

-Which one do you think was the most important and why?


Make sure you use the power point from yesterday to give you ideas on how to display your work. I look forward to seeing your work.
