I hope you all had a great time celebrating VE day on Friday? I have enjoyed looking at some of the blogs you have posted of your decorations and the different ways that you celebrated.
The paper chain is almost complete! I have 16 so just 4 more to be handed in. I have sent you an email on Purple Mash if you are one of those 4 people, so check your inbox.
Here are the tasks for next week:
Please follow the White Rose maths lesson links. Choose Y6 and continue from the last lesson you completed. There will be 5 Maths lessons uploaded each week. There are questions included in the videos but from this week you will not be able to access the sheets. Instead, we recommend using the questions included in the Power Maths Summer Home Edition. Your parents have been sent a link to the ebook and some of you have ordered a print copy which will be delivered shortly. The lessons in this book match the content in the White Rose Home Learning (which also matches the BBC bitesize lesson scheduled for your year group). Some of them recap learning we have covered already in Textbook A or B, others are new lessons.
Power Maths has 3 sections to each lesson. Please look at a single page at a time. Discover has a challenge for you to think about and discuss with an adult. Share then shows you strategies to solve this. Try getting pencil and paper or counters to work through what it shows you. The next two pages are practice pages for you to complete.
Take a look in the Maths section to find extra Maths activities and some puzzles for you to try.
Check Purple Mash for any Maths 2dos that I have set for you too.
You can carry on working through your SAT's buster books. Check Bug Club on Active Learn for a range of e-books that have been allocated to you. Also, check out BBC bitesize for a reading lesson with 3 activities. For any Strictly fans out there, there are videos of Dianne Buswell reading extracts from a book called Tell Me No Lies by Malorie Blackman.
Look out for the next text in the 'Risks and Spills' e-magazine that I have allocated to you on Active Learn. Each day, there are short activities/questions that link to this text and you can find them here.
Thank you for the autobiographies that you have written. I have enjoyed reading them and giving you feedback. It is great to see your writing skills are still there! For those of you who haven't managed to complete your autobiography, please carry on and send it to me via email so that I can mark it. I'd love to put them in a big book for people to read, along with your memoirs.
If are ready for the next task, then we are moving away from autobiography and onto biography. This is where you write about somebody else's life instead of your own. Check Purple Mash for several 2do's about the life of Anne Frank. Research this fascinating and talented girl and use the 2do templates on Purple Mash to write about her life. Alternatively, you may prefer to create a Powerpoint or a factfile on paper about her life. If you do, make sure you 'hand it in' to me by uploading your work to your folder on Purple Mash then send me a quick email to let me know you have done this.
Please see in our English section links to some useful websites about Anne Frank to help with your research about her.
I have set you the next spelling quiz, week 4 on Purple Mash too along with some grammar revision tasks.
How did you get on with the task from last week? Did anyone make a paper spinner? I'd love to see any and hear about how you investigated what made the 'ultimate paper spinner' and why. If you didn't get round to doing this, you still have the instruction sheet allocated to you on Active Learn and you can look back on last week's update here.
This week i'd like you to investigate the opposite effect of air resistance: in the previous investigation, air resistance caused the moving spinner to slow down and fall to the ground more slowly. In this lesson, you will learn how to use the push from air (wind) to make something move. There are two forces acting on the sailboat: air resistance acting on the sail of the boat and wind pushing the boat forward. If the air resistance is greater than the push forward from the wind, the boat will not move forward. If the push from the wind is greater than the air resistance acting on the sails, the boat will move forward. I have allocated you a task on Active Learn that allows you to investigate what makes the best sail on a boat. Get creative and make a sail boat with different sails- why not try them out? A copy of the investigation planning sheet can also be found in our Science resources section.
We are back to learning about the Olympics this week. Check out this link to find out about the history of the Olympics. Then complete the 2do on Purple Mash about it. You may wish to go further and do more research about when the Olympic Games started and why.
Physical Activity: This week's sport focus is netball. Click here to find the activities for each day this week, including a daily challenge. Why not post a blog about this? We'd love to hear how you're staying active!
Look at some of the ideas in our outdoor learning section and get outdoors! This week, I have uploaded a resource pack all about butterflies, with an activity for you to make your own secret butterfly garden.
