Home Learning for week beginning 06/07/20

Monday 6th July 2020

 

Hello Year 6!

 

I hope you all had a good weekend. 

 

This week, we will be listening to some poetry and having a go at writing our own poems around contemporary themes. We will have reading and maths every day, as well as some other subjects - and our Teatime Talk too!  

At school, we will work in Bubble Groups. We will make sure we keep ourselves safe by following the Bubble Rules. Remember, if you are still staying at home, you can access the work we do in school here on the website.

 

Today’s Tasks

 

Guided Understanding/Reading

Everyone has been set a book band on Active Learn/Bug Club.  This means that there is a large choice of books for you to read.  This week, you need to read from this collection every day and complete some of the activities.

 

English

Click on the following links to listen to some poems written by children during lockdown.

After listening, think and (if possible) discuss your thoughts with someone from your family:

  • What are the themes of these poems?
  • Which one do you like best?  Why?
  • How do the poems make you feel?

Now write down your ideas for your own poem based on any current themes – these are ‘of the time’ or ‘contemporary’. Remember to make a collection of useful, powerful vocabulary.  Divide your words up into groups – Nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs and phrases. Tomorrow, you will use these ideas to write your own poem.

 

Maths

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

Today, you need to complete lesson 1, which is all about Vertically Opposite Angles. Remember to have to your book and a pencil ready to pause the video and have a go at the questions.

There are more questions and two activity worksheets on BBC Bitesize  – just follow the links.

 

Geography

Today’s lesson focuses on the huge problems we have with plastic in our oceans.  Click on the link to read some of the facts about our sealife.

What can we do to help?

Make a poster to persuade others to help us to solve this crisis.

 

 

That’s it for today! Have a good week. Remember, you still need to keep yourself safe, stay 2m apart and wash your hands regularly.

 

It’s lovely to see some of you, but we’re still missing others.

Teatime Talk - 06.07.20

 

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.

 In today’s lesson, you will be writing the first draft of your poem.

Then read through your ideas and vocabulary collection that you wrote down yesterday. 

Put all these ideas together to write your own poem based either on Lockdown or Black Lives Matter

 

Try to use interesting vocabulary and include some figurative language.

 

Remember to keep reading it through, making changes to improve it

Hey Year 6!

 

We’ve reached the middle of our last week of primary school!

 

In school, we have been thinking about next year - year 7.  There seems to be a mixture of feelings, some excitement and some anxiety too.

 

How are you feeling? What are you looking forward to?  What questions do you have? 

 

Have a think about these questions and write down your thoughts. 

 

 

Today’s Tasks

 

Guided Understanding/Reading

Everyone has been set a book band on Active Learn/Bug Club.  This means that there is a large choice of books for you to read.  This week, you need to read from this collection every day and complete some of the activities.

  • You should have done this for two days now, did you?
  • Make sure you do EVERY DAY!

 

English

Today, you need to begin by reading the first draft of your poem. How can you improve it by editing it?  Read it a few times aloud.  Think about which words are powerful and which words are unnecessary – remember, poetry often has only powerful, descriptive language, not so many smaller ‘explanatory’ words.

 

If you need more inspiration, watch Monday’s videos again.  You can also read this message from Diversity:

The pursuit of equality should not become a ‘trend’.

The fight for justice should not become a ‘trend’

We are DIVERSITY and as a group we are built on one principal: ‘Our similarities make us strong but our differences make us stronger’.

Let’s keep talking openly and honestly. Even if the issues don’t directly affect you, try to be open to listening and perceiving the world through a different lens. Because the only way to right these wrongs are together.

We will continually use our voice and our art to spread love, not hate. Regardless of our age, size, creed or colour. In this moment we are saying out loud that racism on all levels must be highlighted and destroyed.

Martin Luther King had a dream. That dream is yet to be realised...

Thank you to everyone that has shown us love and support over the years. You’ve changed our lives and we are forever grateful.

 

Maths

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

Today, you need to complete lesson 3, which is all about Angles in special quadrilaterals. Remember to have to your book and a pencil ready to pause the video and have a go at the questions.

There are more questions and two activity worksheets on BBC Bitesize  – just follow the links.

 

 

Science

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/explain-how-to-identify-whether-a-chemical-reaction-has-taken-place

In this lesson, we will learn about the difference between physical changes and chemical reactions. We will learn about the particles in both of these types of change and the signs to look out for in a chemical reaction. You will need a pencil, a ruler and a piece of paper for this lesson. If you have baking soda and vinegar then you will need that for an investigation too, but don't worry you can still take part without these things.

 

If you want more science, have a go at making these rockets:

 

All done for today!  Well done for all your hard work! Remember, you still need to keep yourself safe, keep 2m apart and keep washing those hands!

 

It’s lovely to see some of you, but we’re still missing others.

Teatime Talk - 08.07.20

Hello Everyone!

 

How are you? Did you make the rocket yesterday? Hopefully, you are staying active, safe and healthy – and that you are keeping up with your school work. Remember the work you are doing now is very important, will help you to prepare for secondary school. All the activities will remain on the school website, if you wish to review any of them again. Just click on the stars at the top of the page to access previous weeks.

 

Today’s Tasks

 

Guided Understanding/Reading

 

Everyone has been set a book band on Active Learn/Bug Club.  This means that there is a large choice of books for you to read.  This week, you need to read from this collection every day and complete some of the activities.

  • You should have done this for three days now, did you?
  • Make sure you do EVERY DAY!

 

English

In today’s lesson, you will perform your poem.

 

First, read it through and check that it is completely finished.  If there are parts you don’t like, improve them – try different vocabulary, change the punctuation or the order of the words. Make any edits you need to so that it is your best work.

 

Next read your poem aloud a few times, making sure you change your voice to create a powerful effective performance. Think about the speed you read and the volume.  These may change as you stress some parts more than others, depending on the message you wish to communicate to the listener. It’s a good idea to ask someone to listen to you and give you feedback on your reading.

 

Finally, if you can, video your poem so that it is a record of your performance. You can email it to your teacher if you wish to, we would love to hear them.

PSHE

 

 How are you feeling about your situation, whether you’re staying at home or having your last days at primary school?

 

It is an exciting step you are all making, moving on from primary to secondary, but it can feel quite unsettling too. These months of lockdown are an extra burden that you are having to face. It can help to feel less unsettled if you talk about your feelings, perhaps to someone in your family or a good friend.

 

 

To help you focus your mind, complete some of the activities on the Leavers and Transition Booklet.  This will give you a chance to reflect on your time at Primary School and consider the years to come at Secondary.  You can print it or answer in your workbook.

 

Well done all of you, we’re finished for today! Tomorrow will be our last day. Remember to stay safe and wash those hands often!

 

It’s lovely to see some of you, but we’re still missing others.

What does this mean?

How does it relate to everyday life?

Can you think of any examples which demonstrate its meaning?

Hello lovely Year 6!

 

Here we are – the last day of Primary School! It’s a sad day in many ways, especially as we are not able to gather altogether, but it’s also a happy time with holidays beginning and hopefully some sunshine!

You’re leaving with your memories, which will stay with you always.

 

Your next adventure will begin in September, it may be tough at times, but it will be exciting, interesting and fun too.  Remember, just like Auggie, you will have to be brave!

  • Make sure you do EVERY DAY!

 

 

English

For today’s English lesson, finish off your poem if you need to.  You might like to write another one on a different topic.

 

Then continue to work on your Class of 2020 Leavers and Transition Booklet.

 

You might like to complete the pages about your memories of Primary School and the things you achieved. Or you may like to focus on the future and your thoughts on Year 7.

 

Maths

Friday Family Challenge!

 

Remember, these questions get harder as you go through them.  Perhaps you can work together with someone from your family or challenge them to see who can do the most?

 

 

 

 

Music

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-sing-a-major-and-minor-scale-871a39

In the mood for singing?  In this lesson we will sing a major and minor scale.

 

 

That’s where we finish today.

 

And finally, the teachers too are feeling sad at this time, as we have to say goodbye.  Our sadness is mixed with great pride that we feel for each and every one of you.  You have worked so hard this year and achieved huge progress in difficult circumstances.  You have experienced the strangest of times, as school was locked down and SATs were cancelled. Despite this, you have stayed positive and strong.  Your determination has continued - learning through different activities, whether at home or at school - and it is this determination and positive learning attitude that will help you next year.  Good luck to all!

 

We will miss you all, remember to keep in touch and visit us often.

 

 Take care, stay active and healthy – Oh! One more thing! 

KEEP WASHING THOSE HANDS!
