Home Learning for week beginning 04.05.20

Friday 8th May 2020

Hey lovelies.

 

Today is such a special day. It is the 75th anniversary of VE Day. VE Day stands for Victory in Europe Day – it was considered the formal ending of the Second World War following the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany. Fighting did continue in the Far East and South East Asia as Japan continued with the war – all fighting didn’t conclude until August 1945.

 

All week for English and History I have been asking you to watch video about WW2, why it started, where it affected and a bit about the propaganda used. The History Association have created a PowerPoint which has pictures and further explanations about WW2. Please have a look.  

Had we not been in lockdown, today would have been a bank holiday as the government moved the May bank holiday from Monday to the Friday so we could celebrate it.

 

There are many activities you can still do at home to join in the celebrations.

You could make flags and bunting to hang around your house. What message would you put on your flag or bunting for this year?

During the war people wrote letters to each other – they often spoke about the fun they would have when the war was over. Write a letter to a friend or relative about what you are looking forward to doing when the current restrictions lift.

Organise a house tea party for VE Day with just the people you live with. What games and activities should you play? (Jam sandwiches were popular during the war – perhaps you can make some of those?

 

At 11am a national moment of remembrance and a two-minute silence will be held

At 3pm - as Churchill's speech is broadcast, people will be invited to stand up and raise a glass in a national toast, saying: "To those who gave so much, we thank you"

 

What ever you choose to do today to celebrate, please do take a moment to be thankful of what we do have. We are currently in a difficult time and I know being cooped up at home for many weeks cannot be easy, but we all need to keep safe and follow the rules so that one day we can all be reunited.

 

Missing you all very much.

Miss Ledbury, Miss O’Rourke and Ms Ford xxx

 

We'll meet again celebrity medley for 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day

To mark the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day on 8th May 2020, there will be a national sing-a-long of the wartime classic 'We'll meet again' by Dame Vera Lynn.

If you do the National Academy maths work below, you can find the follow up activities in your maths book to practise further.

Hey year 6!

 

Hope you are all continuing to work hard. Remember a little bit each day keeps your mind active. Just like physical activities keep our body healthy, this work will help to keep your mind healthy.

Now you have completed your information leaflet I would like you to edit and publish it now. Remember to revise over what you have written making any changes. Look out for punctuation errors. Can you edit and re-write a section making it even better? I can not wait to see the finished results when we are all back in school.

 

Maths

Find the value of missing angles

In this unit, you will be studying angles. You will deepen your understanding of angles by applying your understanding to find and calculate missing angles within diagrams and 2-D shapes. You will also consolidate your understanding of properties of shapes, comparing and classifying 2-D shapes. In today’s lesson, you will use algebra and bar models to represent problems and calculate missing angles.

Saying your birthday in Spanish

In this lesson, we will recap our numbers and alphabet, as well as saying our name and age in Spanish. We will then expand our number knowledge to learn the numbers up to 31 and the months of the year in Spanish, so that we can say the date of our birthday in Spanish! For this lesson you will need some paper and a pen or pencil.

 

Remember to try and get outside for some exercise or do Joe’s workout if you cannot get out.

Hi lovelies, 

Hope you have all had a relaxing weekend and you have managed to get out for a daily walk or in your garden for some fresh air. It is really important to try and get out of the house and away from a ‘screen’ each day.

 

TT Rockstars

The battles from last week are over and well done to the Year 6 boys! It was very close only 700 points in it! This week the battles are Year 6 boys Vs Year 2 boys and Year 6 girls Vs Year 2 girls. Remember it is a team effort and if as an individual you score over 10,000, it will not be counted! Everyone needs to join and have a go. Please don’t let the youngest children on TT Rockstars beat us!

Mr Miles is keeping track of it all and posting on the link below.
