Year 6 learning from home

Welcome to Y6's 'home learning' page. We will be updating this daily and setting tasks to support you to learn while we are not at school. Please try your best to complete these tasks. If you are unsure of anything, we will aim to go through this when we return to school in the future, but do ask an adult at home to support you with your learning.

 

When checking out your learning for the day, please scroll through and look for the appropriate date.

PE with. JOE - Friday 3rd April 2020

PE in fancy dress today! Did you join in live? If not here is the video to catch up.

Friday 3rd April 2020

 

Hi everyone.

It’s Friday! We’ve made it through to the end of the second week learning from home. Miss O’Rourke and I are still missing you very much. Hope you are enjoying some of the work that has been set for you so far.

 

Answers to yesterdays maths problems are

Question 1 – 75 voted for the seaside.

Question 2 – 2a – the difference between the cheapest and most expensive box of chocolates is £3.85.  2b – He could also buy 5 bags of sweets.

Questions 3 – Each comic costs £1.40 and the magazine costs £1.10

 

Today I would like you to do the following:

 

Maths – On Active Learn I have set you 2 different activities to practise your mental addition and subtraction skills.

 

English – Read screen 8 of ‘blood’ the ebook assigned to you on Active Learn. Today, we want you to create your own fictional recount of an explorer’s encounter with one of the blood-sucking creatures described on Screen 8 of the eBook. As it is a recount remember it needs to be written in past tense with the events written in chronological order. Can you include examples of perfect past, progressive past and simple past tense in your writing? We will look forward to reading these when we are back in school.

 

Spellings – I would like you to practise you ‘ough’ spellings. These are tricky because of the many different ways ‘ough’ can sound. Complete the activity on Active Learn.

 

Wider Curriculum – This week the project has been all about our local area of the Jewellery Quarter.  This area is most famous for its production of Jewellery. If you could design any piece of Jewellery what would it be? How big or small will it be? What materials would it be made of? Would it include any precious stones? Is there a significant meaning behind your design? Draw and label your design and include a brief explanation about it.

           

Keep up the hard work and make sure you are taking care of yourselves.

Missing you loads,

Miss Ledbury and Miss O’Rourke xxx

P.E with Joe | Thursday 2nd April 2020

Day 9 of the daily work outs, have you done them all? Try this workout for today's PE session.

Thursday 2nd April 2020

 

Hi lovelies,

We are over half way through week 2 of learning at home. We are still really missing you all. Hope you are working hard and helping out your adults at home. Remember you are allowed out once a day as a family for some fresh air, encourage your family to go out for a walk around your local area, remembering to keep 2 meters away from other people. While out on your walk use your senses, what can you see? What can you hear? What can you smell?

 

Today I would like you to do the following:

 

Maths – TTRockstars – The tournament ends tonight at 9pm and we need to work really hard if we want to win! I can see some of you are playing really well but we need everyone to be logging in and doing their bit. Remember it is a team effort! 6L are currently in the lead with Chloe in first place, well done! 6F you are falling behind, Blessing and Hlya are in first and second place – well done to both of you, everyone else please help them out!

You will see on Active Learn, you have been allocated another activity for matching simplified fractions.

Please try the following maths problems in your home learning book. Remember to use bar model to help you visualise the problem.

Question 1.

Question 2.

Question 3.

 

English – Read Screen 4 from the ebook ‘blood’ on Active Learn all about staying healthy. Use this information, your knowledge from our science lessons as well as our handwashing video to write a set of instructional leaflet for staying healthy and what we can do to avoid getting sick. Remember you can add pictures and diagrams. Think about the purpose of this piece of writing, who would it be for? What features do we need to include? Title, an introduction, numbered steps, a helpful hint. Remember to include imperative verbs as well as a range of punctuation.

 

Spelling – I can see a few of you have done the silent letters activity and I have now added a dictionary skills activity. Make sure you complete each section. I can see some of you are logging in but you are not completing the tasks.  

 

Wider Curriculum – On Monday you were asked to research local landmarks from around the Jewellery Quarter. Now using this information, we want you to plan a day out for a tourist new to the area, to visit as many of these local landmarks as possible. How would you advise them get to each one? Would they have to use the bus, tram, train or walk? Create a map to show the journey they should go on. Your map needs to be accurate as possible showing the correct geographical location from one landmark to the other. You could use school as a starting place.

                                                                                                                                                                                       

We really cannot wait to see you all again. Stay safe and keep up the good work.

02.04.20 Teatime talk:

If someone is being bullied should you do something about it? If you don't, should you feel guilty? 

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.

P.E with Joe | Wenesday 1st April 2020

Here is today's workout. Hope you enjoy it!

Wednesday 1st April 2020

 

Hi Year 6.

Hope you are all keeping well. Hopefully you have not been too mischievous with your April fool jokes this morning! Remember it is just a bit of fun and should not cause harm or damage to anyone or anything.

Where did April fools day come from? April Fools' Day may have come from a few different events in history.
One theory suggests that the day comes from the change in the calendar in Europe from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. This moved the New Year from Spring (around April 1st) to January 1st. When people forgot and still celebrated the New Year in April, other people made fun of them.
People liked to play practical jokes all the way back to Ancient Roman times, especially during the Spring festivals. The celebration of All Fools' Day started in the Middle Ages. It was generally celebrated on March 25th throughout much of Europe up until the 1800s.

 

Here are todays tasks (also check out the new David Walliams story! The link is in the star above and the latest issue of First News has also been added just follow the link in the star above):

Maths – TTRockstars – Both classes are still in the lead! Well done and keep it up! Well done to Blessing and Chloe, who are the current top scorers in each class.

Please complete the two activities in your home learning books.

 

 

English – I would like you to read screen 3 from the e-book ‘blood’ on Active Learn. Make sure that you click on the links to do the quiz and watch the video. Once you have watched it use the information and the picture below to help you write a paragraph describing how the circulatory system works.

 

      

                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Spanish – Have you seen the link below the year group home learning pages? Open up the page and then the document. Go to stage 1 and recap on our greetings pressing on the V. You could even move on and learn your numbers. I look forward to you showing me what you have learnt when we return to school.

 

Keep up the hard work.

Tuesday 31st  March 2020

Hi Kids!

Hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. How many of you did the Joe Wicks work out this morning? It has now become part of my daily routine. If you haven’t already done so, check him out at 9am every morning for a full-on workout. Miss O’Rourke and I are missing you very much, it really is strange not seeing you all.

Here are todays task.

 

Maths – The TTRockstars battles are on. This is the semi final to fine the best of the best. Currently, 6L are up against 5N while 6F are taking on 4M. Well done to Wenxi and Hlya who are on top for both classes. Keep it up if we want to win! On Active Learn you will see that I had added a fraction activity for you where you will work on dividing fractions as well as a place value activity, using the inequalities signs to compare numbers up to 1,000,000.

 

Spellings – Yesterday I assigned you silent letters on Active Learn. Make sure you complete this.

 

English – Also on active learn, I have assigned you the book ‘blood’. We will be doing a series of activities linked to this text. Today, I would like you to read the first 2 screens and watch the video. Then using all of that information, in your book, create a fact file recording at least 6 new facts that you have learnt.

 

Keep up the hard work and make sure you all stay safe.

Hi everyone!

Hope you are all safe and well and have had a great weekend! Miss Ledbury and I are still missing you loads and are hoping that you are still being a hero!

 

Maths - new battles have started on ttrockstars, it is time to get playing! We will keep you updated through the week on the highest scorers and those of you who have the quickest speed at answer questions! Well done to 6F for not only winning their battle, but also achieving the highest score!

We have also set some new activities on active learn for you all to complete and as well as completing this, we would like you to complete some of the work from your packs - complete another reasoning task.

 

English - We would like you to read your book for at least 10 minutes. There is also a reading task attached below called 'classroom' - remember to write your answers in full sentences. In addition to this, we would also like you to to continue working on your spellings using spelling frame. Remember to also complete your 'tea time' chat.

 

Spelling - When you log into Active Learn, you will see that you now have a task assigned to you, which will test your skills and understanding of silent letters. Have fun playing the online activity. 

 

PHSEe - I am looking forward to reading everyone's letters when we return to school! Today for PHSEe I would like you to watch another one of kids presidents videos (the video is below) and think of all the different ways you can change the world and make it a better place for everyone, including yourself! Make a list of all the things you could do and share it with your family. 

 

PE - try 'PE with Joe Wicks'... can you complete his work out every day this week? Remember exercise is good for the body and mind!

 

Wider curriculum - Your learning project for this week is titled, ' The area you live in' throughout this week we would like you to carry out research about our local area, in particular the Jewellery Quarter. What key facts can you find out? Why is it famous? Why is the word 'quarter' in its name? What factories are there in the Jewellery Quarter? Are there any famous landmarks here? Think about how you could present this.  

When using the internet to research please remember to be safe online!

 

Keep well and stay safe!
