WEEK 7

'LOCKDOWN' WEEK 7

Hope you are all well. Looks like the end of lockdown might just be appearing on the horizon, so hang on in there and hopefully, we'll see each other soon.

Last week, I gave you 3 embedded learning questions, the answers are on the Week 6 page below.

Go and check what you got right....don't forget to come back !! 

The Oak National Academy lessons for <<Evolution>> continue below. I've also added a list of the Top 3 Weekly Users of Mathletics and Reading Eggspress...it's linked in below. So you can see who is keeping their learning ticking over the best! Can you reach the top 3 this week? 

Now, we have a mystery to solve......

Not the mystery of the Loch Ness Monster, or the Abominable Snowman. Not even the mystery of the missing Year 6 Lockdown Work !!!  surprise

I'm fairly sure that none of these exist!! Or, at best, are very rarely seen.

 

No, this week, you need to use your grammar and word skills to solve the mystery of the Death in the Orchestra.

First, you get the background story, the list of suspects and clue 1 to solve in the form of a tarsia jigsaw puzzle! (You'll need to print it out!)

Later in the week, I'll post more puzzle clues to help you solve the mystery!!

Today, Clues 2 and 3 are released....don't get misled by the word 'juice' in clue 2. 

Here are Clues 4 and 5 to allow you to solve the murder mystery.

And so the Murderer was..... TREVOR TENOR

And so the Murderer was..... TREVOR TENOR 1
Thank you Kye for supplying this picture of your conclusion.

Finally, I found about a book on the theme of Hope in these difficult times. As it says on the LITERACY TRUST website, it is 'completely free for all children and families, the extraordinary collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures has contributions from more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon and Jacqueline Wilson.'

You can read it by the clicking on the link below. I'm about halfway through, but you can just dip in and out if you want to. So far I have particularly liked:

Say Something Nice - page 36; A Dog in Time - page 56; Sunflower - page 107

Have a look and see what appeals to you. Then let me know what you think (by email !!).

Hope this keeps you busy and entertained. Please try to send some work in. smiley

Stay safe, don't drive your parents mad and look after yourselves.
