Year 6 Home Learning 21.04.20

Hello Year 6,

Thank you for the emails we received yesterday. It was lovely to catch up and hear what you have been up too. If you didn’t email us, it’s not too late! Send us a message about what you have been doing over Easter and we will reply to you.

Morning Workout:
Are you ready for your Joe Wicks workout? It starts at 9am on his YouTube channel. Here is a link to yesterday’s workout in case you missed it:

English:
We are going to do another film unit of work, just like we did when studying ‘Alma’ in class last term.

This film is called ‘Broken’ and is based on the game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Before watching the clip, have a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors with a family member. Make sure you are familiar with the rules and know which action beats another.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if Rock, Paper and Scissors met each other? Well, when Rock happens to meet the magical Paper, it’s love at first sight. But when the wrath of Scissors threatens the well-being of Paper, Rock must stop at nothing to save what he loves most, no matter the cost.

Watch the film here: https://vimeo.com/91642206


As soon as rock spots Paper, he falls in love with her. We would like you to write a description of Paper from the point of view of Rock. Make sure you use a range of descriptive techniques to describe both Paper’s appearance and personality.

 

SPAG:

Watch the video clips reminding you what verbs and model verbs are then have a go at the online activities.

 

Maths:
We are continuing with the White Rose Maths home learning lessons. This week we are going to complete the lessons in Summer Term Week 1 which are all about angles.

Complete Lesson 2 – Angles in a Triangle. Watch the clip then answer the questions set in the activity section. The answers are there for you to mark your work when complete but no peeking beforehand.

Don’t forget to log in to Times Table Rock Stars to practise your times tables. If you need your log in details then email your class teacher and we will send them back to you.

These tasks have been set for the week.  You do not need to do all of them – pick the ones that you will enjoy doing:

Task 1: Complete this dot to dot activity below to reveal an animal. Colour it in when complete. Research how this animal has evolved and adapted to suit its environment.

Task 2: Research an animal of your choice and find out these facts about them:

What habitat does it live in?
How has it adapted to suit its habitat?
