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 continue with the diary entry you started yesterday:
Continue to write a diary entry from the boy’s point of view about receiving the puppy as a present. Explain how he felt when he first saw the puppy. Explain why he feels like this. What made him change his mind about the puppy and how does he feel about owning the it now? Add extra details to what you saw on screen:
- Why did his mum give him the present?
- What does he call the puppy?
- What does the puppy like to do/play?
- Where does the puppy sleep?
- Does the boy think the puppy likes him? What evidence does he have?
Remember to edit and check your work carefully – especially for missing punctuation and spelling mistakes.
Reading: Read chapters 4 and 5 of ‘Nightfall on the Somme’ then answer the multiple-choice questions. Both have been set as a 2Do.
Maths: Today we are learning about miles and kilometres
Watch the clip and then answer the questions below. When you have finished you can use the answers to mark your work – but no peeking at the answers until you are finished!
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 email us your finished work.
Have a good day.
Mr Wanless and Miss Wood
