I hope you are all well and working hard as well as spending quality time with your families. Some Year 6's have been back in school this week and we have been trying to make sense of the new ways of working and playing- it is all very strange but they have been superstars at washing their hands and staying 2 metres apart. Mrs Glistrides even made an appearance and delivered a virtual PHSE lesson! Here is the work for this week:
As well as the White Rose and bbc bitesize maths lesson links, I have included a Maths project for you to have a go at that will keep you busy over the next few weeks! Find the resources in our Maths folder on the class page and have fun planning your own theme park with a budget of 5 million pounds! Keep checking for further resources appearing in this folder. The Year 6's in school have made a start on this project too and they are really enjoying it so far. I'd love to see your work, so please upload anything you do to Purple Mash or blog about it.
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.
As well as SAT's buster books and Bug Club, have a go at this comprehension about Greece, which links with our topic this term.
I hope you are enjoying the Greek myths as much as the Year 6's are in school. If you haven't finished last week's work, then pick up where you left off with that. If you're up to date, here are the next lessons:
Monday: Read 'King Midas', page 32 of the ebook. Then reread page 37: while Midas is lying in bed, unable to sleep, he thinks about what he might say when satyr returns. He wants to explain how sad, lonely, hungry and sorry he is. What could Kind Midas say to satyr to persuade him to take the gift back? Write a speech for King Midas to say when satyr reappears.
Tuesday: Read Perseus ( page 39) Using the activity allocated to you on Active Learn called 'Perseus the Hero', think about how far he shows bravery in each incident. How much is luck and how much is intelligence. Do you think Perseus is a hero? Complete this worksheet to map his bravery at significant points in the story. You can also find 'Perseus the Hero' worksheet here.
Wednesday: Grammar lesson. Read pages 41-43 of the ebook. Look at how the sentences are linked- this is called cohesion. It helps to make the writing flow. Pick out the fronted adverbials in this section and make a note of them. Complete the grammar worksheet here.This has also been allocated to you on Active Learn. Now try writing about something surprising that happened on a journey to school- link your sentences together using adverbials, pronouns and nouns.
Thursday: Read 'Theseus and the Minotaur'. Was Theseus brave in his battle with the Minotaur? Use the 'Thought Tracks' activity that I have allocated to you on Active Learn to consider Theseus's thoughts at each point in the story. Then complete this worksheet about it. Make notes about whether you feel he was being heroic or cowardly at each point in the story. Now complete the 2do on Purple Mash by retelling the story.
Friday: Complete the 2do tasks on Purple Mash about Theseus and the Minotaur. Write your opinion about the story and then write a newspaper article that recounts Theseus defeating the Minotaur. Remember to write this using a journalistic style, use quotes, powerful vocabulary and include all the key details.
You also have your weekly spelling task set as a 2do on Purple Mash. For additional supporting resources to help you learn these spellings please look in the spellings section of our class page. Any work that you do, please save to your Purple Mash work folder so that I can see it, or post a blog about what you have been up to.
ScienceDid you have a go at making and launching a rocket? I'd love to see any evidence of this if you have! This week, we will be thinking about gravity as a force. Look in our Science folder for a simple investigation you can carry out to investigate the speed at which different objects fall to the ground.
Now that you have learnt about the physical geography of Greece, this week i'd like you to find out about Greek culture. Have a look at the slides about this here, then complete this fact sheet about food, religion, clothes, leisure, dance and music in Greece. Alternatively, you may wish to research more facts about these topics and create a powerpoint presentation or an information poster about your findings.
Find supporting resources for this in Ancient Greece topic section of the class page.
Physical Activity: This week's sport focus is cricket. 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!
RE/Art: This week and for the next couple of weeks, I would like you to have a look at a national RE and art competition. You have chance to evaluate work submitted by other children and then choose and carry out your own design using the theme of ‘God’s good earth?’ ‘Holy Words!’ or ‘Where is God?’ Check out the RE page for more information.
I would love to see pictures of them on purple mash and if you would like to you could also post your entry as part of the competition.
Outdoor Learning: Check out the Outdoor learning section of our class page for resources and details of the #30 Days Wild from the Wildlife Trust- a project that runs every day throughout the month of June. Can you do something 'wild' that links to nature every day during June? I'd love to hear about any that you manage to do- why not post a blog about what you have done?
