Hello Year 6,
Thank you for the work we are receiving by email. We love to see what you are achieving at home and are pleased with your efforts.
PE: As usual we would like you to start the day with some physical activity. You could tune into Joe Wicks at 9am on his YouTube channel for his daily workout, or if you want to have a go at something different, you could make up your own exercise routine for your family to follow!
English: Read this text about evacuation and answer the comprehension questions based on it. The answers to the questions are at the very end so you can mark your own work:
Reading: Read chapter 2 of ‘Bit of a Hero’ then answer the multiple-choice questions. Both have been set as a 2Do. Then see if you an have a go at these open-ended questions. Remember to refer back to the text to help you answer them.
Maths: We are working out the area of triangles today. Again, this is revision of work completed in class.
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!
World War II Project:
Over the next few weeks, we are going to learn about World War II. Each week we will 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 and write a report about the causes of World War II.
2. Research what the ‘Blitz’ was. What was done to try and protect London from the Blitz?
3. Create a Blitz picture – see the examples below:
4. Lots of children were evacuated from London to the countryside during the war. They had to leave their families behind and live with new people, which must have been very scary. Research the reasons why they were evacuated. What possessions did they take with them? What things would you take with you today if you were evacuated? Imagine that you were an evacuee and write a letter home to your family explaining what it is like to live in the countryside.
5. Anderson shelters were built in peoples gardens to protect them from bombs. Research what an Anderson shelter looked like and how it protected people. Try and build your own Anderson shelter like the pictures below:
Remember to send us photos of your work!
Have a lovely day.
Mr Wanless and Miss Wood
