Year 6 1.6.2020

Good morning Year 6 and Happy 1st of June. I hope you had a lovely half term and are ready for the the final stretch of the school year.

Let start our first week back with another assembly.  This week the assembly is led by former England captain Stuart Pearce, who is talking about the highs and low of his international football career. You will also get a special message from WWE World Champion, Drew McIntyre and Childline. https://youtu.be/7lwl5DBqk1c

PE: Over the course of this week, I want you to set yourself some challenges, for example how quickly can you complete an obstacle course of your choosing?, Work on your passing/shooting in football, work on your catching and throwing, how fast can you run?, time yourself, then see if you can beat that time during the week. It is entirely up to you, although I would like to see any videos or pictures. Remember keeping active does keep us minds healthy and refreshed especially during a time when we have been at home for so long.

Literacy: Letter of Complaint: Reading focus. https://www.thenational.academy/year-6/english/letter-of-complaint-reading-focus-year-6-wk6-1

During this session, you are going to answer fact retrieval questions.

Maths: This week I thought we would go over an area which we covered way back in September, Multiplying by 10,100 and 1000. Below is a short clip to help you refresh your memory. https://vimeo.com/418156588

I have attached a worksheet and the answers too, so you can check on your progress.

History: Over the course of this half-term, we are going to try and learn as much as we can about firstly what caused World War I to break out before leading on to why World War II started and the important leaders who contributed to these times.

Lesson 1: What caused the First World War to break out? https://www.thenational.academy/year-6/foundation/what-caused-the-first-world-war-to-break-out-year-6-wk1-1

In today’s lesson, you will be learning about the events leading up to the First World War. This will involve understanding the unification of Germany in the nineteenth century, and taking a look at the MAIN factors which set the conditions for the great war.

Reading: This week I have chosen a story with a war theme called Buster’s Blitz. https://www.purplemash.com/#tab/pm-home/serialmash/serialmash_saphires/busters_blitz_live_new

Today, I would like you to:

  1. Read Chapter 1
  2. Answer the online multiple choice questions
  3. Task set on Purple Mash: Create a page aimed at pet owners from a government advice leaflet. Write persuasively to make pet owners think that having their animals put down is a good idea.

Quote of the day: ” Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts. ” – Albert Einstein

Have a wonderful day everyone and remember to keep checking the website and our social media areas for updates and a selection of your work.
