Year 6 Home Learning 29.06.2020

Good Morning Year 6,

We hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are ready for another week of home learning! Here are today’s tasks:

 

PE: As usual we would like you to be doing some physical activities. Tune in to Joe Wicks at 9am on his YouTube channel for his daily workout, go for a walk with your family or play some games out in the garden.

 

English: This week our writing is based around a clip called Francis.

Watch it here: https://www.literacyshed.com/francis.html

We want you to draw, paint or create a collage of the ‘thing’ that was knocking on the bottom of the boat. Be as creative as you like! Make sure you draw and label lots of distinguishing features as we will be doing some descriptive work on this piece of art tomorrow.

 

Reading: This week we are going to be reading ‘Where Sea Eagles Fly’. Today read Chapter 1 and answer the multiple-choice questions. Both have been set as a 2Do. Then answer these open ended questions:

Maths: We are going to be doing work on Ratio and Proportion this week. Today we are learning about the ratio symbol. As usual, watch the clip then answer the questions. Once you have completed the task you can check your answers, but no peeking beforehand!

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 draw the flags of some of the countries involved in World War II. Are the same flags used for these countries today?

2. Research the planes that were used during World War II.

You could have a go at drawing them:

Or you could have a go at making a 3D model:

3. Research some rationing recipes and have a go making something delicious to eat.

4. Research the leaders of the different countries involved in the war. Create a fact file on them or draw their portraits.

5. Research and write a report about the ‘Battle of Britain’

 

Remember to send us photos of your work!

 

Have a lovely day.
