Home Learning for week beginning 01/06/20

Friday 5th June 2020

 

Hi everyone.

Hope you are all week. Perhaps it is just me but I feel these weeks are going really quick. I still do not think I am used to not seeing you all every day at school. It really isn't the same without you all.

 

Maths

Today I would like you to work through the family challenge problems, these start off easier and get tricky as you work through. You could do them on your own, or you could work together as a family or you could make it competitive and challenge your family - who can get the most right? 

Here are the questions

Here are the answers for once you have worked through them.

 

English

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/z3nfw6f

Use the above link to remind yourselves all about expanded noun phrases. Once you have gone through it, do the quiz. Can you get them all correct?

 

Music

https://www.thenational.academy/year-6/foundation/exploring-emotions-in-music-year-6-wk6-5

Exploring emotions in music

In today's lesson we are discussing different colours in music and how different pieces of music can make us feel different emotions.

Teatime Talk - 05.06.20

 

Every day I will be posting a 'teatime talk' question for you all to discuss at home with your family. These questions are thunks.

 

There are NO right or wrong answers to these questions – simply YOUR answers.


You do, however, need to think about your answers and be able to justify them – in other words, don’t say the first thing that comes into your head, AND, be prepared to fully explain your answers when you give them.

Listen to the answers given by others and treat them seriously – even if they sound odd, they may all be valid if they can be justified.

 

If you want to read more about this further, use the following newsround link for information

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52813673

 

 

That's it for today. Take care and keep sending me those pictures to j.ledbury@brookfields.bham.sch.uk

 

Missing you all loads,

Miss Ledbury, Miss O'Rourke and Ms Ford xxx

Tuesday 2nd June 2020

 

Hi year 6

Hope you are all keeping well. Remember we are not completely out of lockdown at the moment. The restrictions have eased and we can meet up with other people but we must keep 2 meters apart and make sure we are continuing to wash our hands thoroughly. When we do come back to school, we will have to make sure that we stick to these rules to ensure the safety for all.

It was lovely to receive more photos yesterday; I am still waiting for more, especially some form the boys though! Remember to ask an adults permission and send them to me at j.ledbury@brookfields.bham.sch.uk. These are for your leavers video, a lasting memory of your time at Brookfields, including this unique period in lockdown.

I know some of you are wondering about Kingswood, we are currently contacting them sorting out the cancellation and working on getting your money back to you. As soon as we can, we will be in touch with you about it.

 

Todays tasks

Reading

On active learn, I have used Bug Club to allocate you some reading.

Book 1

Jess and Layla's Astronomical Assignment

by Lucy Courtenay, illustrated by Ben Whitehouse

Jess and Layla’s science teacher has given them an unusual assignment: what would astronomers from the past discuss if they could meet today? That night, the girls are at Layla’s house when a spectacular meteor shower rains down. Is it possible that Layla’s wish upon a meteor might come true, bringing the girls closer to those ancient astronomers than they had ever imagined?

Book 2

Reptiles

by Simon Holland

This book takes a close look at the amazing world of reptiles, from the enormous saltwater crocodile to the freaky frilled lizard.

 

SPAG

Again on active learn, there is a SPAG activity on the origin of words.

 

Spanish

https://www.thenational.academy/year-6/foundation/saying-where-you-live-in-spanish-year-6-wk6-2

Saying where you live in Spanish

In this lesson, we will recap our previous learning in Spanish and then learn how to answer the question ¿Dónde vives? and saying where we live in Spanish. For this lesson you will need a pen and pencil and some paper, as well as another person or a cuddly toy to have a conversation with!

 

That’s it for today! Take care, stay safe.

Monday 1st June 2020

Hey everyone!

Hope you are well and keeping safe. 

You may have seen that some schools are beginning to have more pupils back and we will once it is safe. Keep your eyes on the news page for more information. In the meantime we are still working from home and trying to complete as much work as possible as this is for your future. I know it is not ideal and yes we want you back in the classroom but we have to make the most out of this situation. 

I have only received 5 photos for our leavers video. Please can you take a few during this time and email them to me. Make sure you have an adults permission. My email is j.ledbury@brookfields.bham.sch.uk

 

Reading and English

You can download the book in many different languages. Here is the English version.

https://www.hopewhereareyou.com/download-the-book

This is the website where you can download the book from in other languages.

The book tells the story of different children around the world during this pandemic. I would like you to write your chapter. What has your experience been like? Include the highs and the lows. What have you learnt? What have you missed the most? What one thing from lockdown would you like to continue afterwards? What would you like not to experience again? 

Feel free to email me some of your work, I would love to see it once you have finished. 

 

Maths

Check out active learn, I have set you some activities on abacus to complete. 

 

Keep up the hard work and take care.
