Team,

We are always trying to get you to be as creative in your writing as possible. This week’s homework is really going to challenge your creative writing ability.

Task:


GO EXPLORE - SHORT STORY COMPETITION

 

The rules are simple:

  • Write a short story of up to 500 words around the theme, ’Explore’
  • Have fun… if you enjoy writing it, we will enjoy reading it!

 

Be creative, be original, make us laugh, make us cry, excite us and let your imagination run wild.

 

We suggest you use the three weeks (to complete this) wisely and don’t leave it all until the last week:

 

Week 1: Plan your story

Week 2: Write your story

Week 3: Edit and improve your story.

 

A panel of expert judges will be awarding prizes for the most creative and well edited stories.

Get inspired and we look forward to reading your completed work.

Year 6 Class Homework due in by 30.11.18

Team,

We want you guys to prepare for our literacy topic. We are going to study biographies and then autobiographies.

We want you to find out all about you. We can then turn the facts into an autobiography. Things you can find out are:

-What date and time you were born

-Where you were born

-Have you lived anywhere else

- How tall you are

-What special skills do you have

-Any other interesting facts information about you or your family.

Record your findings in your homework book or on a piece of paper. We are looking forward to finding out all about you!

Class homework

This week we visited Beth Shalom Holocaust Centre.

It was an eye-opening experience which we can all take a lot from.

As we walked around the different stages and rooms of Leo’s life, we saw how Leo’s life started to change.

Because Leo was Jewish, this is how he was treated during the late 1930’s and the start of the war:

  • Mrs Hindenberg told Fritz not to play with Leo because he was Jewish.

  • Leo was forced to sit at the back of the class on his own and the teacher humiliated him in front of his class.

  • Leo’s family shop was destroyed during the Kristallnacht; they were forced to go into hiding.

  • Leo was sent to England on the Kindertransport where he would be safe. He had to leave his family.

In your own words, we would like you write a reflection about what you have learnt from Leo’s experience. What can we take from Leo’s experience? How should we treat others? What would you do today if somebody was being unkind to you or somebody you know just because of your religion?

Class Homework Due in 15.11.18

Science Homework:

Research the life and work of a famous scientist linked to electricity.

Present a timeline of key points in the life of this famous scientist on a poster suitable for display in the classroom. Challenge! Explain in your own words why this person’s work is important and how their work helps us today!

Scientists you could choose …

Michael Faraday, Nicola Tesla, Alessandro Guiseppe Antonio Anastasio Volta, Thomas Edison, James Swan and James Watt.

Spellings - over half term you will need to practise the spellings you have identified in your books. On top of this, have a look over the baseline spellings that we have worked on this half term and practise any you are unsure of.

 

Reminder of your half term homework:

 

On the 11th November it is the centenary of the end of WW1. We want to mark this important event by setting you a mini project to be completed over the next three weeks.

Task:

Create a poppy (this could be in a range of media) and a poster to go alongside this to explain one of the following:

  • Facts about WW1

  • Why Remembrance Day is important

  • Facts about our armed services today

  • The history/ significance of the poppy

On the Thursday (8.11.18) we will have a showcase of all of your work in the hall.

Get inspired and we look forward to seeing your completed work.

Year 6 Homework due in 12.10.18

Team,

Over the term, we have been developing our understanding of the character curriculum and we thought it would be great to tie this in with ‘Black History Month’. Your homework this week is linked to these areas.

We want you to think about the character curriculum traits and how a famous person from black history demonstrated one of them.

Task:

Research and design a very small fact file about a famous person from black history (think about any of the people in the assemblies this week).

Write a small paragraph that shows how they demonstrated one of the character curriculum traits (courage, respect, teamwork, inclusion, resilience, motivation, tolerance, empathy or altruism).

Ensure it is in your homework book.

Your famous person from black history can be from the modern day or in the past, so be as selective as you want. You have 1 week to complete this homework, in your homework book.

Get inspired and we look forward to seeing your completed work.

A reminder about the homework due in next Thursday (4.10.18)

Make sure you have spent at least an hour on it (you have had two weeks)

See details below.

Year 6 Homework due in 04.10.18

Team,

Over the last week, we have been studying narratives (a fancy word for stories) in literacy. Your homework this week is linked to this topic.

It has been decided that for the year group homework, it would be great to get creative and design your very own scene from World War 2. We’ve also seen how great your narratives have been so we want you to write a narrative to go with it.

Task:

Sketch, make or paint a scene from World War 2 (think about all we have studied so far.)

Write a small narrative to go with it including some of the amazing language features we have been working on in school.

Ensure you put your name on it; we may put some on display.

Your scene can be based on anything to do with World War 2, so be as creative as you want. You have 2 weeks to complete this. We suggest you do your scene one week and the writing the next. It doesn’t have to be in your homework booklet, teachers can sign your booklet to say we have seen it.

Get creative and we look forward to seeing your completed work.

Week two class homework - Week beginning 10th September 2018.

 

Team,

 

Over the last two weeks we have been studying poetry in literacy. Your homework for this week is linked to this topic.

 

Youngwriters (an online writing forum) have announced that they are running a poetry competition this year and we would love for lots of you to enter. We’ve seen how talented your poetry skills are so we believe we have a good chance of some of you winning prizes for both yourself and the school!

Take a look at the rules for the competition:

Rules

  • Only one entry per pupil, there is no limit to the number of entries per school
  • Poems can be on the entry form or A4 sheet of paper
  • Poems must be your pupils' own work
  • Ensure that all pupils include their name, school and age on their entries

Closing Date: Friday 19th of October 2018

 

Your poem can be based on any theme of your choice so be creative. Write your poem on an A4 sheet of paper, and remember to include your name, school and age. We will send them off next Friday. Feel free to decorate your poem, although this is not an expectation.

 

Happy writing!!

Team 6 J

 

It is due in next Thursday (20th September).

 

A little bit of advice from team 6: you should spend approximately 30-40 minutes on your weekly homework task, no more. With maths homework, spellings and daily reading, you need to ensure you manage your time efficiently and continue to enjoy all the other wonderful things you do at home with your family and friends – it’s all about balance.

Please shout up if you ever need any clarity regarding homework set.

Happy decorating!

Team 6 J
