Hi Year 6! 

Hope you are all keeping healthy, safe and aren't missing us too much! We are missing you - Miss Lock's grey hairs are finally going and it's far too quiet! We hope we are back to normal very soon!

 

Each week (on a Friday) I will be adding some work for you to do the following week, which will mainly be Maths and English, but will also include some science and topic work. 

 

Remember, in addition to keeping up with your school work, find some time each day to do something fun with your families! We can learn all sorts of new skills - practice baking tasty treats (you might want to test them on Miss Lock when you come back :) ) , help your parents in the garden, teach your siblings and do some painting, but most of all: keep safe and look after each other.

 

It is also very important that you don't lose your writing skills - you could keep a weekly diary, write letters to family members, neighbours or local care homes, write stories, book reviews or finish off your Alma story!

Don't forget to upload onto seesaw, videos and pictures of what you are up to and any work you are completing or struggling with then we can all see, help each other out and keep in touch! :)

 

Take care! Miss Lock

Week 11 (6th July)

Please find below this week’s work. All work can be completed in the purple exercise books given in your home learning packs/ the CGP books provided. Don't worry if you can't print the sheets- answers can just be recorded in the books! CGP books are now not being used to set work from so if they are not completed they can be used as extension work.

 

For Maths:

This week we will be going over drawing and interpreting Line Graphs for the first 2 days and then Pie Charts for day 3 and day 4. Please find a different activity for each day with answers included.

Day 1:  Starter- Week 6. Day 1- Drawing and Plotting Line Graphs.

Day 2: Starter- Week 7. Varied Fluency and Reasoning and Problem Solving for Line Graphs (Answers included)

Day 3: Starter- Week 1. Read and Interpret Pie Charts Day 3 (answers included)

Day 4: Starter- Week 2. Applying knowledge to test style questions. Answers included.

Day 5: Arithmetic Test and Basic Skills revision. Spend 20 minutes going over the key questions and skills for the arithmetic test (you will need all these in high school!). This week you can also go over the questions that you got wrong on last week’s paper (Paper 8). Then you will need Test 7 and you will get 30 minutes to complete it (be careful when printing as the answers are on the back page). Once you’ve finished then mark your own answers. How well did you do?

 

For English: 

This week we are using A Talk for Writing book all about ‘One Chance’ by Dean Thompson to write our own ‘wishing’ story. I have split the work into amounts that I think is appropriate for each day.

Day 1: Pages 2-9 These first few activities are to make you start to begin brainstorming your ideas!

Day 2: Pages 10-19 In these next activities you will be finding the meaning of some unknown words and finding their antonyms and putting them into sentences.

Day 3: Page 20-24 – It is now time to plan your own wishing story and think about some speech that you can add to it! Look at the ideas in the booklet and try and follow the pattern and top tips!

Day 4: Page 24 – Time to draft your own wishing story! Don’t forget to describe it in detail, use your own interests, ‘magpie’ other great ideas and enjoy it! Don’t forget about your plan (it can change) and all the other tools to help you!

Day 5: Edit and improve your writing from yesterday. Can you do it how we used to do it in class by using coloured pencils to choose your sentences to improve and then using a key? If you finish, then have a go at following the instructions to make a 6-page book out of paper and add your story to it (page 25)!

 

Challenge: Can you write a newspaper article about the following picture?

Make sure you upload to Seesaw for Miss Lock to read and comment on :)

 

For Topic: This term our new topic is Raging Rivers! This week we will be looking at holding back the flood.

Work your way through the PowerPoint, answering the questions and reading the information. Link to the videos: https://vimeo.com/35758160

https://vimeo.com/31305629

 

Then, complete the Debating Damns Activity Sheet using the information that you have just learnt and the Case Study Sheet (you can choose your own star rating here).

Finally, answer the questions at the end!

Extensions (optional):

1.Can you build your own dam? Use a water tray or storage box as your “river” and use a range of construction equipment – for example grave or sand, cardboard, tape, foil, plastic wrap, cups, straws, paperclips, wooden dowels, cotton balls, plastic sheets, clothes pegs, wire, string, fabric, etc.

2.Research the locations of some of the world’s major dams. Can you think of a creative way to present it?

3.Hydroelectric power is one source of renewable energy. Find out about the other ways power can be generated. Which ways are most effective? Which ways are most reliable?

 

For Science: This term we will be looking at Living Things and their Habitats! This week we are going to look at Field Guides!

First, work your way through the PowerPoint, answering the questions and reading the information.

 

Carefully search the area around your house/in your garden looking for different plants and animals. Then, have a go at completing the Local Species Activity Sheet to record some of the species that you discover. You might want to sketch some pictures of ones that you find. Use the plants and animal’s ID sheets to help you identify the species.

 

Then, use the information that you have gathered to complete the Field Guide Activity Sheet (choose your own star rating here) to create your own field guide.

Extensions (optional):

 

  1. Can you create a quiz about the different phyla and classes of animals?
  2. Create a Field Guide to another habitat of your choice, research the information that you need using books or the Internet.
  3. Can you include fungi in your Field Guide? Add the new pages to your booklet.

 

For Music (Mrs Longhurst):

 


Follow the link below to listen to this week’s music.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NJRCCgK_AM

 

This week’s music is the 1812 Overture by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

It is being performed by an orchestra that arrives in sections!

It starts with a string quartet. Which other instruments can you see?

 

The piece was written to remember the Battle of Borodino in the Franco-Russian war.

 

You can hear Russian folk songs squash out the Marseillaise (French national anthem) to represent the French army retreating from the Russian army.

 

Tchaikovsky did not like this piece! Do you?

 

Mrs Longhurst 

 

For RE: Our new topic for this half term is: People of faith. Our final week will be a faith link to Hinduism.

 

This week I would like you to research facts about the life of Gandhi.

Who he was, what he did, where he lived, where he went, who he visited, what he said, who listened to him, why he was and still is regarded so highly by people of all faiths.

 

In what ways is the lifestyle of a person of another faith similar/different to that of a Christian? You can apply your knowledge and create a simple mind map.

 

 

For Computing: As children are online even more than usual, we will be including some online safety games and resources for the children to complete each week. This week we will be looking at how to stay safe online.

First watch the video- Jigsaw Becky’s Story.

https://www.outofyourhands.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/jigsaw-for-8-10-year-olds.mp4

 

Then work through the Staying Safe Online PowerPoint, answering the questions.

Finally, have a go at completing Worksheet Activity 1 on the lesson plan. Have a go at making 2 profiles- one public and one private.

There are further notes on the lesson plan in case you get stuck J

users are catered for? The following sites are useful to look at:

https://www.lrwt.org.uk/rutland-water

https://www.visitleevalley.org.uk/
