Good Morning Year 6,
PE: Start the day with some physical activity. You can tune in to Joe Wicks at 9am on his YouTube channel for his daily workout or do any physical activity of your choice.
English: We are going to watch a film called ‘Mourning Dove’.
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/22995466
Reading: Read chapter 3 of ‘Bit of a Hero’ then answer the multiple-choice questions. Both have been set as a 2Do. Then have a go at the SPAG activity below, linked to the chapter.
Maths: Today we are working out the area of parallelograms.
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
