I hope you have all had a lovely half term? The sunny weather has certainly made the week very enjoyable. Next week, some Year 6's will be returning to school and I can't wait to see your faces again and to welcome some of you back. For those of you not returning to school for now, it is still important that you keep up with your home learning so I will be continuing to set weekly work on this page. Please check each week for the work I'd like you to do.
Please follow the White Rose maths lesson links. Choose Y6 and continue from the last lesson you completed but remember, you can no longer access the worksheets. Instead, have a go at the daily lessons on bbc bitesize for Year 6 or complete your Power Maths home learning book.

Try to use powerful words and similes to describe his thoughts.

This myth explores the concept of pride. Complete the activity sheet about this that has been allocated or find it here.
Wednesday: Read Daedalus and Icarus. again. Imagine how Daedalus felt on the morning he had completed the wings. What words could you use to describe his feelings? Now imagine how Daedalus felt after he saw his son fall into the sea. Does he regret making the wings? Does he blame himself or Icarus? How does he feel? Record your ideas using powerful word choices.
Thursday: Using your notes from Wednesday's task, write a diary entry from the point of view of Daedalus. Write one entry for the morning when the wings are finished, just before Daedalus shows the wings to Icarus, and the other for the evening, after Icarus has fallen from the sky. Focus on using modal verbs and past tense verb forms.
