Year 6 news
Ted has got a new cat- he is a rescue cat called Jack. He has emailed in a photograph so you can all see him. If you have any news feel free to email either Miss P or Mrs D and we will add it to the page.
A 'Pobble' start to get you thinking this morning.
‘As you can see, Your Majesty, our first proposal is a special Ickabog Defence Brigade. These men will patrol the edge of the Marshlands, to ensure that the Ickabog can’t leave the marsh. We estimate the cost of such a brigade, including uniforms, weapons, horses, wages, training, board, lodging, sick pay, danger money, birthday presents, and medals to be around ten thousand gold ducats.’
The Ickabog Defence Brigade will be funded with a rise in taxes. Each person in Cornucopia will pay 2 gold ducats to fund this new army.
Today, we'd like you to design a poster to be placed all around the country explaining that there will be an increase in taxes. Make sure your poster includes:
a title - about the tax rise
an introduction - about the Ickabog Defense Brigade
information into sections (give each section a sub-heading)
use facts from the text - about what the tax will pay for
include pictures with captions - a member of the Defence Brigade and an Ickabog
Have a go at these problems!
Today's lesson is all about translation.
How are you getting on with your song? Keep going - it will be worth it!
Today's task is to design your own planet. You can use this template if you like or design one of you own! Stick it into your Leavers book when it's finished. Mrs Walker has sent in a recording for you.
