Good Morning Year 6,

 

PE: Tune in to Joe Wicks at 9am on his YouTube channel for his daily workout or make up your own exercise video and get your family to join in with your moves!

 

English: We are going to do some writing based on the clip ‘Francis’.

Watch the film here: https://www.literacyshed.com/francis.html

We want you to write a newspaper article explaining the strange disappearance of Francis from the camp site during the night. When writing, try to:

1. Have a catchy headline
2. Have a subheading to give extra detail
3. You opening paragraph should state the facts: who, what, when and where
4. The rest of your article should give extra details including
– Facts found in her diary
– When and where the boat was found and the condition it was in
– A quote from an eye witness
– A quote from her parents
– A quote from the police detectives
– A quote from the camp site owner
5. A closing paragraph stating what you should do if you have any information
6. A picture of Francis or her boat with a caption

You could type up your newspaper report in word – if you do you could use different font for the headline and you could use columns for the article.

We are going to give you 2 days to complete this like we would in school. Don’t forget to proof read your work.

Make sure your handwriting is neat and that you take care with your spellings and check your punctation.

 

Reading: Read chapter 4 and 5 of ‘Where Sea Eagles Fly’ then answer the multiple-choice questions. Both have been set as a 2Do. Then have a go at sequencing question below, linked to the chapter.

Positive Minds: Week 5 Goal Setting

 

World War II Project:

Over the next few weeks, we are going to learn about World War II. Each week we will set a variety of activities for you to pick from. Some of these activities may take you longer than an afternoon so you don’t have to do them all.

1. Research and draw the flags of some of the countries involved in World War II. Are the same flags used for these countries today?

2. Research the planes that were used during World War II.

You could have a go at drawing them:
1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNIz_wrwBcw
2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-MFsvjGpASQ

Or you could have a go at making a 3D model:
Spitfire model   Spitfire model 2

3. Research some rationing recipes and have a go making something delicious to eat.

4. Research the leaders of the different countries involved in the war. Create a fact file on them or draw their portraits.

5. Research and write a report about the ‘Battle of Britain’

 

Remember to send us photos of your work!

Have a lovely day.
