31.3.20 Home Learning Year 6

Good Morning Year 6, hope you had a lovely evening yesterday and are ready for another day of learning.

Let us kick off this bright morning with some PE, remember to follow Joe Wicks at 9am.


If you would like to try something different, why not get moving and try an energetic session of Just Dance or some mindfulness with Cosmic Kids Yoga – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-BS87NTV5I&vl=en (This link should take you to the Harry Potter activity)

Literacy is for FRIDAY: Children to create an information booklet about the Suffragettes. Suffragists and the right to vote.

Children to write about Suffragettes/Suffragists: The Battle of Equality, giving facts about what they have learnt, people who opposed them and why and opinions of what they have read in class and from their own research.






This task could be presented as a booklet or a PowerPoint, be as creative as possible. Think about writing tools such as a contents page to highlight to the reader which page different facts/information are on and a glossary of key terms and their definitions.

Maths: I was very pleased with all your attempts with yesterday’s work, today is a little bit trickier but all it involves is adding fractions with different denominators.   Lesson 2 – Step 7 – Add and subtract fractions where denominators share a simple common multiple  https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-7/ 

Reading: Monday and Tuesday Reading: Purple Mash – Suffrajitsus

Our  new reading task on Purple Mash is Suffrajitsus. Hopefully you are well underway with the tasks set yesterday. A quick reminder:  Read the first chapter of the online book Suffrajitsus then answer the multiple choice questions about the text, chapter 1 sequencing, Chapter 1 SPaG, Chapter 1 open ended questions and the My Idol task. If you need another day for this task please use it. We will start Chapter 2 tomorrow.

Science for THURSDAY:  Children to compare strategies and identify similarities and differences in the ways animals are adapted to survive throughout the winter. They then sort different animals according to whether they migrate, hibernate, store food or grow a thick coat in order to survive over winter

  1. Begin by introducing the concept of how animals are adapted to survive over winter by working through the Animals over Winter PDF presentation. See notes on the PowerPoint slides for further guidance and information. If you would like PowerPoint version, I can email that across too as it has my teacher notes on it. I have included the answers in the document, so try to hide them from the children until the end.
  2. Introduce some of the strategies that animals in temperate regions might adopt to cope with changing conditions in winter – migration, hibernation, changes in behaviour such as food caching (hording), growing a thick coat, etc. Before moving on to the worksheet activity, ensure understanding of the terms ‘hibernation’ and ‘migration’. If necessary, provide a brief explanation (e.g. migration = to move from one region to another; hibernation = to become inactive over winter). I have tried to include these in the  presentation, any questions feel free to ask.
  3. Complete the Animals over Winter worksheet which is attached below.
  4. Their is an extension task afterwards which involves you creating a poster linked to one of the animals on the worksheet.
