Year 6 Online Learning 16.11.20

Hello Year 6 and welcome to our first week of online learning!

We will be setting work for you daily on our class page.  Once you have completed today’s tasks, send them by email to your class teacher so we can give you feedback.  We are looking forward to seeing your work!

 

English:

Unfortunately we will have to wait until we are back in school to finish our report on Planet Pandora.  Instead, for home learning, we are going to complete a unit of work based on a film.

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.

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.  Also, think back to the work that we have been doing in class to add extra information to a sentence:

  1. Use coordinating conjunctions (FANBOYS)
  2. Use subordinating conjunctions (because, although, since, whether until)
  3. Use prepositions
  4. Use relative clauses

 

Spellings:

Write some sentences using your spelling words below:

ferocious

malicious

conscious

mischievous

precious

ambitious

suspicious

vicious

nutritious

delicious

 

Maths:

This week we will be learning about multiplication and division.

Today, we are going to revise how to multiply 4 digit numbers by a 1 digit number.  Watch this video: https://vimeo.com/458470803

Then answer these questions:

multiplying 4 digits by 1 digit

Take a photograph of your completed work to send it back to us or you could type in the answers on this PowerPoint: ppt multiplying 4 digit by 1 digit numbers

 

PE:

In PE we have been playing different games which encourage us to improve our defending skills.  These include the ‘Gladiator’ game (defending gates) and the game where you had to defend cones (worth 1 point) and a ball (worth 3 points) from the other team.

We would like you to create a new game that would help develop ‘defending skills’.  Write a clear set of instructions to explain how the game should be played and think about ways it could be adapted to make it easier or harder.  You could create a diagram to help support the instructions, or you could make a video showing how to play it.  We could then have a go at playing some of these when we are back in school!

 

Have a good day!
