Good Morning Year 6,
We hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are ready for another week of 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 we are going to watch the animation ‘The Present’ and answer some questions about the clip.
We would like you to answer the comprehension questions as you watch the clip for the first time. It is important that you stop the film at the time the question asks you to as some of the questions may ask you to make predictions – you won’t be able to do this is if you have already watched the whole clip!
Take time to read through the instructions and questions now so you know what to do when watching the clip. You can print the questions out if you are able to or you can have the questions and film up on your screen at the same time and write your answers on a sheet of paper.
Watch the film here: https://vimeo.com/152985022
Reading: This week we are going to be reading ‘Nightfall on the Somme’. Today read Chapter 1 and answer the multiple-choice questions. Both have been set as a 2Do. Then see if you can put these events in the correct order:
Maths: We are continuing with our work on equations and today we are looking at solving 2 step equations. As always, watch the clip carefully then answer the questions in the activity section. Once you have completed the task you can check your answers, but no peeking beforehand!
This week we are going to be setting some activities set around the theme of ‘The Jungle’
Each afternoon, pick one of these activities to complete. Some of the activities may take longer than 1 afternoon:
1. Research a weird and wonderful animal that lives in the rainforest. Create a face file on this animal (could be a poster or a leaflet). Include information such as: what it looks like, its life cycle, what it eats, how it catches its prey, where it lives (trees, forest floor) and some interesting facts about it.
2. This jungle painting below was created by Henri Rousseau and is called ‘Surprised’. In this picture a tiger crouches low in thick jungle foliage, its back arched and teeth bared. It is not entirely clear what is happening: is the tiger cowering from the flash of lightning, or is it stalking prey.
Watch this clip from the national gallery and see if you can create your own collage based on this picture following the steps shown.
3. Write your own descriptive jungle setting using this word mat to help you with your vocabulary:
4. Design and make a jungle style cushion. Use felt or different fabrics to create your cushion. You will need to stuff your cushion when finished with some soft padding to complete it.
5. Create some jungle animal masks to wear.
6. Create your own jungle landscape in a shoebox.
Remember to send us photos of your work!
Have a lovely day.
Mr Wanless and Miss Wood
