Summer

Week commencing Monday 6th July 2020

Hello Team 6!

 

We hope you are all well. It was great to see some of you during our Teams meeting on Monday. Same again this week: 4:00pm – 4:30pm.

 

This week we are going to think about your transition to secondary school. You will find lots of transition activities in the English section despite it being more closely linked to PSHE. There is an activity for each day. This is a really exciting time but we’re sure you will have many mixed emotions – this is normal. If you have any worries/concerns, please email your teacher and talk to your parents.

 

Please keep sending us your wonderful work; you can see below how much you have you have all been doing at home – we have been blown away by the quality.

 

Have a great week.

 

Team 6 J

Your AMAZING work!

 

Tyler's super story had me gripped from the start. Have a read and see what you think!

Maths

This week’s focus – Angles

Take a look at the videos and then work through the activities below. Remember to check if your teacher has given you extra guidance or challenge! You will need access to a ruler for this work. Follow the link: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/  week commencing Monday 6th July.

 

We have already looked at angles during our online lessons so if you feel confident with this I have added some alternative activities for you all to have a go at linked to mental arithmetic. If you need any help with this, email your class teacher.

Day five: To be added by Friday :-)

Miss Cronin's maths group:

Hey maths team!

How did you get on with cracking the Sudoku puzzles? I know Tyler in Mr Newell’s class successfully completed one – well done! The challenge this week is to see if you can beat your previous time. Good luck! Let me know how you get on.

Here is the link to show you how to solve them:

This week’s focus: Transition (recounts)

 

You only have three weeks left at primary school… where has time gone?!

 

This week we have planned some lovely activities linked to your transition to secondary school. You will be applying lots of English skills: note taking, writing in the style of an agony aunt, reading and researching information about your new school and writing a recount.

 

The tasks and examples are attached for each day.

Picture 1

Day one: Make notes on what you are most looking forward to about starting your new school. You will also need to consider any worries/concerns you have - remember to share them with your parents or teachers.

Day two: Explore and find out about your new school. Visit their website.

Day three: A trip down memory lane! Complete the two activities. Today requires you to think of some of your most memorable times at primary school - enjoy!

Day four: To write a recount. Think of an event for each (or most) years of primary school. Take a look at the modelled write for ideas to get started.

We are going to continue our work linked to sugar and finish thinking about the following:

How much sugar is too much?

  • How much sugar is too much?
  • What affect does sugar have on our body?
  • What do we use sugar for?
  • What are good sugar substitutes?
  • How will this change your diet moving forward?

Your task this week is to work through the PowerPoint to find out what happens to our bodies if we continuously overindulge in sugary foods. Your main task is to keep a food diary for a day and find out approximately how much sugar you consume.

Your main task this week is to create a set of your own beliefs/rules. We would also like you do create a symbol for your beliefs and give them all a title. There is an example included on the PowerPoint.

Mr Newell's maths group:

 

You guys know the drill by now :).

 

Follow the link for this week's numeracy work: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

 

This week it is all about ratio. We will be doing exactly the same lessons in school so if you have any problems email me. I have had a look at all the days, day 3 is about scale factors which we found a little tricky in class but got there in the end. Remember to make sure you are clear on how much you have to scale your shape by and you'll be fine. The videos are great to help you through. I will upload the problem solving later in the week. Mrs Cronin has uploaded the tasks and answers for you. :)

Miss Clare's maths group:

Hi Team,

 

Although we have looked at ratio before I think this week will be good practise for you and hopefully consolidate your learning and make you feel more confident.

Miss Cronin has also added some alternative activities so you have lots to choose between this week.

Below I have put a link for some online times table games.

Mr Wildman's maths group:
This week I would like you to work through the White Rose activities and then have a go at the extra tasks below. 

English

This week's focus:

Last week you wrote some fantastic storm descriptions. This week, you are going to write an adventure story all about a sea rescue.

Day 1

Today we would like you to complete your reading task. Today you will be answering questions about a story. We will be writing our own short stories this week so look out for words, phrases and ideas to magpie.

The two star task is the one we would expect most of you to complete. Remember looking for useful story openers, words and phrases as you read.

If you find this too tricky there is also a one star option.

If you would like a challenge there is a 3 star option. This is challenging. You will need a dictionary with you to look up tricky vocabulary. There are a lot of questions. You may decide to complete the first ten or spread out the reading over the week.

Day 2

Today you are going to plan your sea rescue adventure story. We are going to imagine we have characters on a boat, out at sea and a storm has started.

We are going to all stick to a similar structure for our stories but you will need to add your own ideas and imagination along the way.

To help plan, you can complete the story plan sheet or create your own plan.

Day 3

Today you are going to write the opening of your story.

Day 4

Today you are going to continue your story.

Day 5

Today you are going to write the ending of your story and edit it. You could also add pictures and share your story with someone at home.

Spellings:

Art

This week you are going to have a go at developing your perspective sketching skills.

We want to know the things you are looking forward to when this is all over. Follow the instructions on the pdf and have a look at the example for some inspiration. You may prefer to print and cut out the pictures.

ICT

This week for ICT we would like you to complete a technology survey. All the instructions are on the PDF. It will be interesting to see how much some of you use mobile phones or tablets.

Still going...

A reminder to get involved in JK Rowling's competition.

 

"EXCITING NEWS - JK Rowling has just tweeted some VERY exciting news! She stumbled across a box in her attic which contained drafts for a stand-alone fairy tale she wrote 10 years ago called The Ickabog. During lockdown, she has done a bit of rewriting and decided to publish it for free online so that, during these strange times, children can read it. She will be publishing a chapter (or 2 or 3) every weekday, starting at 3:00 on 26.5.20 and ending on July 10th. But there's more...She'd like children to illustrate the book for her! The best pictures in each publishing territory will be included in the books she intends to publish in November 2020. She won't personally be judging the competition (that will be down to individual publishers) but your parents or guardians can post your artwork with the hashtag #TheIckabog and JK Rowling can retweet and comment! See the website for more details and terms and conditions. Enjoy and good luck with your wonderful art work. The link is here: https://theickabog.com/ "
