How are you all? It's been a strange week this week with the announcement that schools may be going back on 1st June. It's great news for Year 6 isn't it? We're working hard to put things in place to make this work, so fingers crossed. Thank you for all your hard work this week, I have enjoyed reading some of your Anne Frank biographies and Olympic research too. Some of you have also been busy working on Science investigations too
In the meantime,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 daily book club with 3 activities. For any Percy Jackson fans out there, there are videos of Stephen Fry reading extracts from the Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief with some linked activities.
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 your completed work about Anne Frank. I think you'll agree that her diary and her life is really interesting to learn about. Keep the work coming in for this please. I have also been enjoying reading your book recommendations, thank you to those who have handed them in. Keep sending them into me on Purple Mash please. I have saved them in the English section of our class page so that you can read them and use it to find some good books to read yourself.
This week the writing task links with our topic work about the Olympics. We are sticking with biography writing and i'd like you to choose a famous Olympic athlete- past or present- to research and write about their life and achievements. I have set you some 2do tasks on Purple Mash about this to get you started. Alternatively, you could hand write your research or type it on Word or produce a PowerPoint- just make sure the focus is on writing good quality sentences that are in your own words, not copied and pasted from the internet- I can tell! Be sure to upload your work to your folder on Purple Mash and send me an email to tell me so that I can take a look.
Continuing with the boat theme, this week you will be investigating forces in water. This is called water resistance. Consider the following questions:Have you ever tried to run in water? What did it feel like? Was it easier or more difficult to run in water than on land? Why? Water resistance is a force just like air resistance and gravity. It causes friction between the moving object and the water to slow the object down. I have allocated you the task for investigating boat hulls on Active Learn. Your aim is to find out which is the best shaped hull for reducing the effects of water resistance, i.e. which shape of hull will move through the water best. You can also find the resources sheets for this task here. You will need to have completed last week's task and have made a boat first. See last week's Science update here.
See the writing task above but also continue with your research about the history of the Olympics. Use 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 orienteering. 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!
PHSE: These are very tricky times and it is important that we are kind to ourselves. Take a look at the 'kindness challenge' and have a go at completing this week. You can keep this work for yourself or if you are happy sharing with others, post a blog or upload in your work folder on Purple Mash. Only I can see this work if you'd rather not make it public.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
