Year 6 Home Learning 15.7.20

Good Morning Year 6,

Assembly:  The science behind why – This week we’re joined by scientist, doctor and broadcaster Professor Robert Winston, who was challenged by students from the Frank Wise School to answer all of the questions they had about science. With questions ranging from thunderstorms to vaccines there’s almost nothing he couldn’t explain. https://classroom.thenational.academy/assemblies/the-science-behind-why#

Maths: Today’s lesson is all about interpreting Pie Charts. https://vimeo.com/436508805

Reading: Chapter 3 of The Nightmare Machine  https://www.purplemash.com/#tab/pm-home/serialmash/serialmash_saphires/nightmare_machine_pupil

  • Read Chapter 3
  • Answer online multiple choice questions
  • Task: Write about a time when you used your mind to overcome a challenging situation.

Art: Today’s ‘How to draw’ art task is:  How to draw a shark folding surprise puppet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wy2-3BxdtYY

Short task:  I know this is not the way we should be ending our year together but I would like to collect some thoughts and reflections from you, so I have a question.  What are you going to miss most about Parkside and why?

Quote of the day: Sometimes we’re tested…… Not to show our weaknesses…… But to discover our strengths. 

Have a great Wednesday,

Mr Wanless and Miss Wood
