Good Morning Year 6,
We hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are ready for another week of home learning! Here are today’s tasks:
PE: As usual we would like you to be doing some physical activities. Tune in to Joe Wicks at 9am on his YouTube channel for his daily workout, go for a walk with your family or play some games out in the garden.
English: Today and tomorrow we would like you to write a short story based on a on a picture created by Harris Burdick. Below are 3 pictures for you to pick from. Look carefully at each one and use the title and the opening line to help inspire you to create your own short story.
When we read your story, we will be looking for:
1. Neat, joined handwriting
2. Exciting vocabulary
3. A range of punctuation correctly used
4. Different sentence lengths
5. An exciting story plot – the ending you may wish to leave as a cliff-hanger.
Pick the picture you want to base your story on from these below:
Reading: This week we are going to be reading ‘The Magic Pen’. Today read Chapter 1 and answer the multiple-choice questions. Both have been set as a 2Do. Then answer these open-ended questions:
Maths: We will be revisiting angles this week in our maths lessons. Today we are learning about vertically opposite angles. As usual, watch the clip then answer the questions. Once you have completed the task you can check your answers, but no peeking beforehand!
World War II Project:
We are continuing to learn about World War II. We have 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 why the ‘Make do and mend’ campaign was so important. Try and upcycle a piece of your clothing to make it into something new and exciting to wear.
2. Research some of the propaganda posters that were used during the war. Why were they so important? Create a replica of your favourite poster – this can be done in paint, crayon, collage or as a digital piece of art.
3. Research some of Winston Churchills’ famous war time speeches. How do they help to unite and build the morale of the British people?
4. Create your own board game. If you like, this could be based on WW2 – the events that happened during the war may cause players to move forward or back spaces. Play the game you created with a member of your family.
Remember to send us photos of your work!
Have a lovely day.
Mr Wanless and Miss Wood
