Today, the year 6 class within school will be spending their maths lesson in the ICT room playing Prodigy and Times Table Rockstars.
If you are at home, my expectation is for you to also spend your time playing these two maths games.
You should play for roughly an hour - more if you want to.
There will be no work to send me as I will be able to see online who and who has not been playing the game and engaging with the work.
Create a storyboard which has 8 sections. Your storyboard will be based upon an adventure that an explorer would have if they're dropped off in the jungle.
An example we used in class was the following:
Box 1: - Dropped off in the jungle by an plane
Box 2: - You enter the jungle and begin to explore
Box 3: - Enter stream and have to pass alligators be careful!
Box 4: - Stream's current becomes strong and carries adventurer into the ocean.
Box 5: - Wade onto the beach from the ocean and see fire in the distance
Box 6: - Climb tree to identify location of fire
Box 7: - Venture through jungle to find fire
Box 8: - Find fire and find the doctor who was lost in the jungle
I expect your storyboard to have lots of writing, pictures and to be coloured (*if you have colours at home). Try to use fronted adverbials followed by a comma, use great description language and great verbs.
