Home Learning

Friday 5th March 2021

Good morning Year 6! Well done – you’ve made it to the final day of home-learning! yes I am so proud of all of you, for how hard you have continued to work during this time away from school! You all deserve a huge pat on the back. heart

 

I am so excited to see you all back in school on Monday and can’t wait to get our classroom back up and running again!

 

I hope you all have a brilliant weekend! smiley

 

Check below for today’s tasks and I will see you on our Meet at 9am!

Miss Wilding laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

We are going to have a refresh of square and cube numbers.

 

Square Number:

We show this by putting a small 2 above the number like this: 32.

This means we multiply the number by itself.

e.g. 32 = 3 x 3 = 9

 

Cube Number:

We show this by putting a small 3 above the number like this: 33.

This means we multiply the number by itself and then by itself again.

e.g. 33 = 3 x 3 x 3

 

3 x 3 = 9

9 x 3 = 27

 

Have a go at these questions below:

  1. 62
  2. 53
  3. 42 + 92
  4. 72 + 23
  5. 43 + 13

 

Main Task –

Complete the arithmetic paper attached below.

Guided Reading:   

Today I would like you to imagine that you are Edmund. Think about what you would be thinking to yourself after leaving the Beaver’s home and on the way to find the Queen’s palace.

 

Write a short thought-bubble showing what Edmund would be thinking. Remember to write in first person and present tense.

 

Chapter Eight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPvRIk7vlqY

English:

Today you are going to complete your Reading Comprehension task. I would like you to read the text below. This week I have chosen a poem for you. It is important to remember that poems can often be quiet metaphorical, as is the case for this poem, so read carefully and also think between the lines too! 

 

Make sure to read the text carefully and use it while answering the questions. Read the questions carefully too and look for key words which tell you how to answer the question. Make sure to reread your answer and check you have actually answered the question that has been asked.

 

Once you have completed it I would like you to mark it. If you have made any mistakes please go back to the text and find where the support evidence to the answer was, to help you understand how it should have been answered.

Afternoon:

This afternoon we will be doing PE and Music.

 

 PE

This term in PE we are going to be focusing on invasion games – this means we are going to be focusing on skills from netball and basketball.

Today we are going to continue looking at the key skills of basketball. Last week we looked at dribbling skills – how we can travel most efficiently with the ball and protect it from the opposition.

 

Watch me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRrNi7uHmaY

Watch this video above and have a go at these basketball drills. These are key moves you might use in a game of basketball.  

 

If you do not have a ball to use, I would still like you to watch the video, so you can understand the different moves we will be using when we come back to school.

Then to get your body moving this afternoon, either go outside if you can either on a walk or doing some laps of your garden or have a go at this quick work out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrmYjcQzSsQ

 

Music

Today we are going to continue our new Music topic, looking at and comparing different genres of music through different eras.

Today we are going to look at LC2: To conduct further research to compare and contrast music from different eras

 

Last week we introduced ourselves to some big music artists between 1940s and 1990s. Today I would like you to carry out some of your own research finding other bands from those decades and finding out if all the music from the same decade is similar or whether there are any differences. I would also like you to think about the differences between eras again too. Are there any key differences between specific decades? 

 

As always, when carrying out your own research you need to be careful. When Googling any facts today make sure to add 'for kids' and when YouTubing any songs I would like you to add 'radio edit' after it today. 

 

 

Thursday 4th March 2021

Good morning Year 6 I hope you are all doing okay on our penultimate day of home-learning! yes

 

Don't forget as today is Thursday, you need to find some time to carry out your spelling test today.

 

Take a look at today's tasks below and I will see you at 9am on Google Meets. 

 

Have a great day, 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task

Today we are going to be tackling some multi-step word problems. This means there will be more than one step to do within the questions. They are all addition and subtraction.

 

Example:

Sally is training to run a marathon. One Monday she runs 13 miles, on Wednesday she runs 23 miles and on Friday and Saturday she runs 15 miles.

How far has she run all together?

 

Here the words ‘all together’ show me I need to add.

I need to add up all the miles and find the total.

13 + 23 + 15 + 15 =

(I am adding 15 twice because she runs 15miles on Friday and Saturday).

You can do this by adding each one separately or putting them all in one big column, whichever way is best for you.

13 + 23 + 15 + 15 = 66 miles

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/456840256

 

Complete the questions below.

 

Guided Reading:

Today I would like you to read Chapter Eight again. Then you are going to create a missing poster for Edmund. Think about how we would set out a missing poster: a clear title, picture, name and age, information on the person what they look like and were wearing, where they were last seen and where it is believed they might be. 

 

Chapter Eight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPvRIk7vlqY

English:

Today we are going to move on to looking at Part Two of the poem. Like last week I have create a PowerPoint for you sharing the original version and a modern version. I have also included the key vocabulary and summarised each stanza for you too.

Make sure to read through all the slides in the PowerPoint really carefully and then complete the questions on the last slide.

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to do French and RE.

 

French

In French today we are continuing to look at directions.

 

  1. Start by using the link to play the pelmanism game on French games to revise directions, by matching the correct words and pictures: https://www.french-games.net/frenchgames/pelmanism?topic=Go%20-%20which%20way?&level=primary
  2. Then play the four in a row game on French games to revise directions: https://www.french-games.net/frenchgames/four-in-a-row?topic=Go%20-%20which%20way?&level=primary
  3. Using the worksheet below, match up the correct picture and direction phrase.
  4. Then finally, using the PowerPoint below, give directions in French from the arrow at the bottom to the places mentioned on each of the 3 slides. This can be done as a spoken or written activity.  

 

RE

Today we are going to look at our LC2: To look at texts from the Bible to investigate Jesus’ values.  

 

For today’s RE I would like you to work your way carefully through the slides in the PowerPoint below. Your task is outlined within.

 

 

 

Wednesday 3rd March 2021

 

Good morning Year 6 I hope you are all having a great week so far!

 

**Don’t forget that today there is no morning Meet, as I will be having Parent’s Evening appointments with your adults.

Please remind your parents that their 5 minute appointments are today and we will be doing them via the same Year 6 Google Meet link that we use to do our live lessons.

 

As we are not meeting face-to-face today, it is really important that you read through all the information on the class page and within the PowerPoints today extra carefully.

 

I hope you all have a great day and I will see you tomorrow,

Miss Wilding laugh

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to be looking at how we can use the inverse of an operation to check I have got my calculation correct.

The inverse is like doing the opposite. If I had an addition and was doing the inverse I would subtract. If I had a subtraction and I was doing the inverse I would add.

 

Example:

234 + 67 = 301

 

To check this I can do the inverse. This will mean taking my answer and subtracting one of the numbers in the question. If I have done it right my answer should be the other number in the question.

 

301 – 67 = 234

301 – 234 = 67

I know that I have done my addition right.

 

Example:

897 – 156 = 741

 

To check this I can do the inverse. For subtraction questions I will take my answer and add the smallest number in the question to it. If I have done it right my answer should be the biggest number in the question.

 

741 + 156 = 897

 

Watch this video which explains more: https://vimeo.com/456840063  

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

Today you will be answering questions based on Chapter Eight. Remember to read through the text as you do this and use evidence from the text to support your answers. Please write your answers using full sentences.

 

Chapter Eight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPvRIk7vlqY

English:

Today in English you are going to complete your setting description. You need to make sure your piece of writing covers all the key areas I have pointed out in the PowerPoint and that you are happy with your descriptions.

Use the checklist document below to ensure you have covered everything within your writing. 

Once you have finished make sure you go through and make any edits and improvements to your writing and check you have tried to included everything on the checklists. 

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing Science.

Today we are going to be focusing on LC3: To understand the impact exercise has on the body.

 

Work your way carefully through the PowerPoint below reading all the slides and information carefully. Your task is outlined within too.

 

Tuesday 2nd March 2021

Good morning Year 6 I hope you all had a great start to your week yesterday - make sure to take a good look below at your tasks for today! 

 

Have a great day and see you at 9am - 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

**Don't forget, as I will be having a Parent's Evening appointment with your parents tomorrow, there will be no morning Meet tomorrow morning - you will need to come on to the class page and read through your tasks carefully.

 

Parents please be aware that once you have asked to join the call for your appointment, I will have to accept you in, this may not happen straight away as I may still be in my previous appointment, but as soon as I am available I will begin our call. I endeavour to stick to the 5 minute time frame for each appointment as best as possible; therefore, if there is anything you know you wish to talk to me about in greater detail I am happy to discuss anything face to face once the children return to school next week, or with a follow up phone call. If for any reason there is any technical/internet difficulties I will resort to telephone appointments.

Many thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation with this new way of Parent's Evening. 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to be looking at subtracting numbers. Just like addition when we are asked to subtract larger numbers we need to use a formal column method rather than trying to work it out in our head. Just like addition too, you need to make sure you are lining everything up carefully.

 

Example:

8976 – 543 =

 

 

8

9

7

6

-

0

5

4

3

 

8

4

3

3

 

8976 – 543 = 8433

 

Example:

In the example above the values in my first number were big enough that I could take each value on the bottom number straight away.

Here though I am going to have to borrow as my values on the top aren’t all big enough to take straight away from.

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/456839795  

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

 

Today, I would like you to define the words in the document below. You can use a dictionary, the internet or an Alexa/Siri to help you. I also want you to find out what type of word it is too (noun, verb …).

 

Once you have defined all of these words, I would like you to then read chapter seven again and think about each of these words when you come across them and how your understanding of these words develops when you read them in the sentences.

 

If there are any other words you come across that you are unsure of make sure to look them up too.

 

Chapter Eight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPvRIk7vlqY

English:

Today in English, you are going to begin writing your setting description of Part One. Make sure to get your plans out from last week and use them when writing today. You are going to be writing this today and tomorrow, this will give you plenty of time to write a really descriptive and detail piece of writing and really think about your punctuation, openers and sentence structures too. I do not expect anyone to finish their piece of writing today.

 

I have create a PowerPoint for you with lots of different ideas for you to magpie. As well as different examples of the style and level of writing I expect to see from you all. Make sure to read through this carefully before you being writing your own piece.

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing DT. Our first few DT lessons this term are going to be focused on our Science topic.

 

Work through the slides in the PowerPoint below carefully, your task is outlined within.

 

 

Monday 1st March 2021

Good morning Year 6 - I hope you have all had a lovely weekend! This is our final week of home-learning! I am so excited to see you all back in school next week, remember if there is anything you want to speak to me about or ask before returning next week you can always message me on Purple Mash! 

 

Make sure to take a look below and read through all of today's tasks carefully! 

 

Have a great day and I will see you all at 9am, 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

This week, we are going to be reviewing our knowledge and understanding of formal addition and subtraction.  

 

Today we are going to be looking at addition. When we are adding large numbers together it is important that we use a formal method rather than doing it mentally to ensure we don’t make any mistakes. We will be using a column. As you know, it is really important that we line all of our numbers up accurate and can use place holding zeros in our columns. We also need to make sure we add on any numbers we have carried.

 

Example:

45, 674 + 3,789 =

Here my two numbers have different amount of digits in, so I need to be super accurate with my lining up of the columns.

 

 

4

5

6

7

4

 

+

0

3

7

8

9

(you can see I have used a place holding zero to show I don’t have any ten thousands in this number)

 

4

9

4

6

3

 

 

 

1

1

1

 

 

 

45, 674 + 3,789 =  49463

(Remember to add on and cross out your carried numbers)

 

Work through the examples within the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/456839553

 

Complete the questions below.

 

Guided Reading:

Today, I would like you to read Chapter Eight (this is attached below). You can read this on your own, with an adult if you have one who is free at home, or listen using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPvRIk7vlqY

English:

Today we are going to focus our English on SPaG. We are going to be looking at verbs today and their functions.

Read through all the slides in the PowerPoint carefully and complete the different tasks within.

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing History.

Today we are going to be focusing on LC2: To explain how and where the Vikings settled in England.

 

Work through the slides in the PowerPoint below. Read all the information carefully. Your task for today is outlined within. You will also see the sheet needed below too.

 

Friday 26th February 2021

Happy Friday Year 6 and well done for working hard through your penultimate week of home learning! 

 

Today your new spellings have gone up on SpellingShed, so don't forget to head over there and find sometime to practise throughout the week. 

 

I hope you have a great day and have a lovely weekend too! 

 

See you all at 9am -

Miss Wilding  laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

We are going to have a refresh of multiplying numbers that are multiples of 10. 

 

e.g. 30 x 5 = 

When we are multiplying with multiples of 10, I do not need to do a column method do I? I know I can use my timestable knowledge to help me here. 

I know what 3 x 5 is.   3 x 5 = 15

Therefore 30 (which is 10x bigger than 3) x 5 = 150 (which is 10x bigger than 15).

 

40 x 60 = 

4 x 6 = 24 

40 (10x bigger) x 60 (10x bigger) = 2400 (100x bigger because I have made both sides of the question 10x bigger)

 

Have a go at these few questions below: 

 

1. 20 x 6 =

2. 60 x 70 = 

3. 50 x 90 = 

4. 30 x 140 = 

5. 60 x 360 = 

 

Main Task –

Complete the arithmetic paper attached below.

Guided Reading:   

Today I want you to focus on this quote from Chapter Seven:

“They say Aslan is on the move – perhaps has landed already.”

 

Have a think about what you think this could mean and who or what Aslan might be. Then write a prediction based on your ideas.

 

Chapter Seven: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPvRIk7vlqY  

 

 

English:

Today you are going to complete your Reading Comprehension task. I would like you to read the text below. This week I have chosen a non-fiction text based on space.

 

Make sure to read the text carefully and use it while answering the questions. Read the questions carefully too and look for key words which tell you how to answer the question. Make sure to reread your answer and check you have actually answered the question that has been asked.

 

Once you have completed it I would like you to mark it. If you have made any mistakes please go back to the text and find where the support evidence to the answer was, to help you understand how it should have been answered.

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we will be doing PE and Music.

 

 PE

This term in PE we are going to be focusing on invasion games – this means we are going to be focusing on skills from netball and basketball.

Today we are going to focus on basketball. In basketball, you are allowed to travel with the ball, we do this by dribbling. Today we are going to focus on developing our dribbling skills.

 

Watch me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMQp0bwjokw

Watch this video above and practise the key dribbling moves – you want to focus on the moves at the start of the video, but you can also have a go at some of tricky moves at the end too if you want.

When dribbling it is really important that you are protecting the ball and stopping the opposition from stealing it from you, make sure to practise keeping the ball behind you when dribbling today too.

 

If you do not have a ball to use, I would still like you to watch the video, so you can understand the different moves we will be using when you come back to school.

Then to get your body moving this afternoon, either go outside if you can either on a walk or doing some laps of your garden or have a go at this quick work out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrmYjcQzSsQ

 

 

Music

Today we are going to begin our new Music topic, looking at and comparing different genres of music through different eras.

Today we are going to start by looking at LC1: To compare and contrast a range of songs by different artists from different eras.

 

Below I have picked out some of the most well-known artists and their songs from different eras.

I want you to listen to them and for each one note down what you like about the track (and style of music) and what you don’t like. Then I want you to compare them. For example what is the same/different between the song from the 1960s and the 1980s. Think about the style of the song, the beat, the tempo, the type of instruments being used, the style of singing, the lyrics and topics being sang about.

 

1940s – Glen Miller : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPXwkWVEIIw

1950s – The Drifters : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFoBreVWa7M

1960s – The Beatles : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1HDt1tknTc

1970s – Queen : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0NBMXdzMec

1980s – Bon Jovi : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXsmGSnq3lE

1990s – Oasis : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYffFEIAzdE

 

You can present your work for this Music tasks in anyway you wish. 

 

Don't forget it is Friday afternoon and that means Golden Time too! Make sure to find some time this afternoon to do something fun that you enjoy too - you deserve it after working hard all week! smiley

 

 

 

Thursday 25th February 2021

Good morning everyone - I hope you are all having a great week so far.

Don't forget today is Thursday and you should find some time to carry out your spelling test at some point today. See the document below for this week's spellings. 

 

Please see below for todays tasks and I will see you all at 9am. 

 

Have a great day, 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task

Today we are going to be looking at questions with negative numbers. Remember when working with negative numbers, it is important we can picture these on a number line and count through 0.

 

Most often with negative numbers, you are asked to count on or backwards from a certain number, or read and understand questions on temperature.

 

 

Example:

 

Spain

England

Norway

Australia

10°C

-2°C

-13°C

34°C 

 

Work out the difference in temperature in England Australia.

 

England is -2°C, Australia is 34°C

I need to work out the difference between -2°C and 34°C

 

First work out from your negative number to 0 how many degrees there are.

 

 

-2°C                     0°C

               2°C

 

Then work out from 0 to your whole number.

 

0°C                     34°C

               34°C

 

Finally combine the two differences:   2 + 34 = 36

 

The difference between the temperature in England and Australia is 36°C.

 

*Don’t forget when working with negative temperatures, the colder it is the bigger your number will look.

e.g. -45 is colder than  -2

 

Example:

You might simply be asked to do a calculation.

 

-7 + 13 =

 

Here you can count on from -7 using a number line and doing 13 jumps.

 

-7, -6, -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

 

Here I can see I have added on 13 and my answer is 6.

Don’t forget when counting on we have to count 0.

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/454667567

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

Today I would like you to read Chapter Seven again. Within Chapter Seven, there is a lot of detail and description given to describe the beaver’s house, including where it is and what it looks like both inside and out.

Today I would like you to create an advertisement poster or brochure for an estate agents who is going to be selling the beaver’s house.

You will want to think about including information on the house itself, what it looks like (including key features), the location of the home, think about the type of people or animals this home would appeal too.

Remember when selling something you need to be persuasive and use language that will make people want to buy the beaver’s home.

 

Chapter Seven: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPvRIk7vlqY

English:

Today in English we are going to continue focusing on Part One of the poem. We are now going to turn our attention to the setting and scene of this part. There is a lot of information, description and detail we are given. 

 

Work you way through the slides in the PowerPoint below, reading all the information carefully. You task to complete for English today is outlined within. 

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to do French and RE.

 

French

In French today you are going to continue look at directions.

 

  • First of all Mrs Hughes would like you to watch the following video to refresh your memory on the directions you have looked at so far. Make sure to listen and repeat the phrases: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWyzOK0tGYw&feature=youtu.be

Good morning Year 6 - please see below for today's tasks. 

Don't forget today is the last day to get on to SpellingShed and practise your spellings before your test tomorrow. 

 

Have a  great day and see you at 9am - 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to be comparing and ordering numbers. Remember when comparing numbers we say which one is bigger or smaller, or if they are equal.

When ordering numbers it is important that we know if we are ordering from smallest to biggest, or biggest to smallest. Always read the question carefully.

 

Example:

Sometimes we can easily identify which number is bigger or smaller.

 

79      and     2609

 

Here I can quickly see that 79 is smaller than 2609.

Or, 79 < 2609

 

But sometimes it’s not that easy.

 

 

167983    and    167839

 

When we have two numbers like this remember we all ways put them on top of each other and work through each column until we find a difference.

 

167983

167839

(Remember if they didn’t have the same number of digits in you must make sure the correct columns are lined up).

 

  • I can see in the Hundred Thousands column they both have 1.
  • I can see in the Ten Thousands column they both have 6.
  • I can see in the Thousands column they both have 7.
  • I can see in the Hundreds column my first number has 9 hundreds and my second number has 8 hundreds. Therefore my first number is bigger.

 

167983 > 167839

 

Example:

Order these numbers biggest to smallest:

 

2309, 2093, 2390, 2903

 

Just like before I will put them all one on top of the other and work through each column. I am going biggest to smallest so I am looking for my biggest number first.

 

2309

2093

2390

2903

 

  • Here all my numbers have 2 in the Thousands column, so I have to look at my next column
  • In the Hundreds column I can see one of my numbers have 9 hundred, this is the biggest number. I can now cross this off and add it to my answer list.
  • Still looking in the Hundreds column I can see that two of the numbers have 3 hundreds. So if I then look in their Tens column, I can see one have 9 Tens, the other has 0. So the one with 9 tens is bigger. I can cross this off and add it to my answer list.
  • Then I now know the number with 3 Hundreds and 0 Tens is the next biggest.
  • And that leaves me with 2093 as my smallest number.

 

2903, 2390, 2309, 2093

 

Watch this video which explains more: https://vimeo.com/453593456

 

Complete the questions below – starting from Q3 today.

 

Guided Reading:

Today you will be answering questions based on Chapter Seven. Remember to read through the text as you do this and use evidence from the text to support your answers. Please write your answers using full sentences.

 

Chapter Seven: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPvRIk7vlqY

English:

Today in English we are going to continue looking at Part One of The Lady of Shalott. Today we are going to focus specifically on the lady who is trapped within the towers on the island of Shalott and think about what we know about her so far.

Tuesday 23rd February 2021

Good morning Year 6 and well done for a super first day back yesterday! 

 

Take a look below for today's tasks and I will see you in our Meet at 9am. 

 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to be rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000.

Remember when rounding we underline the column we are rounding to and then look to the column on the right to tell us whether we round up or stay the same.

 

Example:

Round 679 to the nearest 10

 

  1. First I underline my tens column

679

I know that my 7 is either going to round up or stay the same.  

 

  1. Next I look to the column to the right. It is a 9, this tells me I need to round up.

Remember 0-4 we stay the same, 5-9 round up.

 

  1. Now I can see 679 rounded to the nearest 10 is 680

Remember all the numbers in front of my underlined column stay the same and all the numbers after change to zeros.

 

Example:

Round 123567 to the nearest 1000.

 

  1. 123567
  2. The 5 on the right tells me to round up
  3. 124000 (the numbers in front stay the same, the numbers after change to zeros).

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/454666928

 

Complete the questions below.

 

Guided Reading:

 

Today, I would like you to define the words in the document below. You can use a dictionary, the internet or an Alexa/Siri to help you. I also want you to find out what type of word it is too (noun, verb …).

 

Once you have defined all of these words, I would like you to then read chapter seven again and think about each of these words when you come across them and how your understanding of these words develops when you read them in the sentences.

 

If there are any other words you come across that you are unsure of make sure to look them up too.

 

Chapter Seven: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPvRIk7vlqY

English:

Today in English, we are going to start looking at our new text for this term. It is a narrative poem by Alfred Tennyson called ‘The Lady of Shalott’.

Please work your way carefully through the PowerPoint below reading all the information and tasks outlined within carefully.

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing Art. This is going to be our final art lesson on the Pop Art inspired pieces we have been working on. For the rest of this Spring term, our focus is going to move on to DT from next week.

 

  1. The first thing you need to do today is get both your black & white and coloured pictures.
  2. Then turn them over so you are looking at the blank backs of the pictures. Make sure your picture is facing the right way round and isn't upside down on the other side. 
  3. Then on the back of both pages you need to draw a grid. This should be 4 across, by 6 down.

It should look like this on the back of your pictures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The boxes on your piece of paper will look wider and deeper than on my example above. You need each section of the grid to be the same measurements on both pieces of paper. You are going to have to use a ruler to get this as accurate as you can on both pieces of paper.

 

  1. Next on both pieces of paper you are going to write the numbers 1-24 in each grid like this.

  1. The you need to cut along the lines of your grid so you are left with two piles of rectangles. Put these in order 1-24 for your black & white pieces and then your coloured pieces.
  2. Now you are going to create you final piece, if you have a big piece of paper you could glue them down, or you can just lay them out on a table and take a picture.

You are going to take the 1 from your black and white pile and then put next to it the 1 from the coloured pile.

Then take the 2 from the black and white pile and put in next to the 1 from the coloured pile.

Then take the 2 from the coloured pile and put it next to the 2 from the black and white pile.

Keep going until it looks like this:

1 b&w

1 c

2 b&w

2 c

3 b&w

3 c

4 b&w

Monday 22nd February 2021

Good morning Year 6 and welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely half term and enjoyed a nice break and are feeling refreshed and ready to dive into our new term! I am hoping that we will not need to continue this way of learning for much longer and that we will all get to be back together again very soon, but until then keep working hard at home and working through the tasks I am setting for you each day. 

 

Make sure to take a good look at today's tasks below and I will see you all on our Google Meet at 9am! 

 

Have a great day,

Miss Wilding laugh

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

In Maths this term, we are going to review and consolidate our knowledge on all the topics we have looked at so far in Year 6. This week we are going to begin by reviewing our knowledge and understanding of Place Value.

 

Today we are going to be looking at being able to read and write numbers up to 10 million. To help us do this it is really important that we are confident with our place value columns. Some of us may be confident to picture these in your head, or some of you may prefer to draw these out each time. 

 

Have a go now at drawing out your own place value grid and label each of the place value columns from ones to millions.

 

Millions

Hundred Thousands

Ten Thousands

Thousands

Hundreds

Tens

Ones

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Example:

I can use my place value grid like this to help me read out numbers: 1,763,125

I always start filling in the column from the ones first and moving left until I have run out of digits.

 

Millions

Hundred Thousands

Ten Thousands

Thousands

Hundreds

Tens

Ones

1

7

6

3

1

2

5

 

Now I can see I have: one million, seven hundred and sixty-three thousand, one hundred and twenty-five.

When asked to write out from digits to words, make sure you always write the numbers as words too not just figures.

e.g. I wouldn’t write 2 hundred, I would write two hundred.

 

Or, I can use a column to go from words to figures. 

Three million, seven hundred and six thousand, nine hundred and forty-two

Millions

Hundred Thousands

Ten Thousands

Thousands

Hundreds

Tens

Ones

3

7

0

6

9

4

2

 

I can see that in figures it would be: 3,706,942

I can also see in this example I have no ten thousands. 

 

Example:

Place value grids can also help me know the value of a certain column.

How many ten thousands in 2,467,906

 

Millions

Hundred Thousands

Ten Thousands

Thousands

Hundreds

Tens

Ones

2

4

6

7

9

0

6

By putting the number in the place value grid, I can see I have 6 ten thousands.

 

Work through the examples within the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/452565177

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

Today, I would like you to read Chapter Seven (this is attached below). You can read this on your own, with an adult if you have one who is free at home, or listen using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPvRIk7vlqY

English:

Today we are going to focus our English on SPaG. We are going to be looking at identifying adjectives and noun phrases. Work your way carefully through the PowerPoint below, your tasks are outlined within. 

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing our first History topic of the year. For this half term, our topic is going to be Vikings. We are going to be focusing on the question: What made the Vikings so good at settling and invading?

 

Last year we looked at Anglo-Saxons, the Vikings and the Anglo-Saxons were invading Britain around the same period of time and so you may see some similarities between the two; however, they didn’t always get along so peacefully.

 

Today we are going to be looking at who the Vikings were and where they came from. 

It is important that you read through all the slides and information in the PowerPoint carefully. Today’s task is outlined in the PowerPoint and the worksheet mentioned is below too. 

 

 

Friday 12th February 2021

Good morning Year 6 and happy Friday! laugh

Well done to all of you for working so well over this very strange term, I have been so proud and impressed by the level of hard work I have seen from you! I want you to all make sure you have a well deserved rest over the next week and make sure you find plenty of time to do lots of things that you enjoy! 

 

Don't forget, as it is Friday you new spellings have gone up (I have added them below for you to look at too) and you will have an extra week to practise these spelling over the half term.

 

Take a look at today's task below and I will see you all at 9am. 

Have a great day and a great half term, 

Miss Wilding laugh

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

We are going to have a refresh of long division. Remember we would use long division instead of our bus stop method when dividing by 2 digit numbers.

 

e.g. 559 ÷ 13 =

 

Our first step is to right down the start of our 13 timestable.

 

13, 26, 39, 52, 65, 78, 91, 104 (I will stop here but I might need to come back and add more in later on).

 

Take a look at the images below which show each of the following steps:

  1. I will set out my question.
  2. Next how many 13 in 5? 0
  3. Next how many 13 in 55? 4
  4. I then write down underneath what 4 x 13 is to work out my remainder
  5. Next bring down the number 9.
  6. Now ask how many 13 in 39.
I can see that 13 goes into 39, 3 times.

I can now see 559 ÷ 39 = 43  

 

Now have a go at these questions:

  1. 728 ÷ 13
  2. 504 ÷ 14
  3. 1125 ÷ 15

 

Main Task –

Complete the arithmetic paper attached below.

Guided Reading:   

Today I want you to read to read chapter six once more. I want you to write down your ideas and predictions on where you think the robin is leading the children. Do you think it is a trap?

 

Chapter Six: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxAqIzQBuaA

English:

Today you are going to complete your non-chronological report.

That means you need to complete the following sections in your report:

  • Paragraph on diet
  • Did you know? / Key facts section
  • Conclusion
  • You may also want to add any pictures or diagrams to complete your report today too

 

Watch the video below to give you some ideas on how to write up your conclusion paragraph. Remember it should wrap up your report and give information on the future of your animal:

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-analyse-and-write-a-conclusion-64wp8c?activity=video&step=1

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we will be doing PE and ICT.

 

Last week you did a great job at creating your own expressive dance routines. Today we are going to continue with our gymnsatic routines though from the week before. You did a great job at following my gymnastic routine and then also creating your own too!  

For PE today, you are going to be creating another of your own gymnastics routine, but making it different to the last one. 

 

First of all I want you to take a look at the routine below this includes the last routine we looked at and some new moves you could try from the yellow section too. Have a go at following it, try doing it several times and vary which options you choose, trying to add in a few of the new moves this time too.

 

Once you have had a go at the routine below, I want you to create your own routine. This week though I would like you to put it to music and try fit it to the beat of the song. I want your routine to include at least one of each: a travel, a roll, a balance and a jump.

 

Use the routine below to help you with some ideas.

 

** When carrying out your routines today, I want you to think very carefully about the moves you do, where you do them and if you should do certain moves without being supervised by an adult.

Today we are going to look at our next task.

 

At the side click Level 6, then more complex variable.  Today you are going to work through the sixth lesson 'Debugging'. Make sure to watch the explanation video first and then have a go yourself. 

 

 

Friday afternoons in school would mean it is Golden Time, it is important that you make some time to reward yourself for  all the hard work you have put in this week. This week we have lots of big events coming up: Chinese New Year, Valentines Day and Pancake Day. See if you can link your Golden Time activities to these events in anyway. I have uploaded some activity sheets you may like to use. 

 

Thursday 11th February 2021

Good morning Year 6!

 

Today is spelling test day, please find time today to carry out your test. You will see this week's words below. Your new spellings will be going up on SpellingShed tomorrow. 

 

Take a look below for today's tasks. 

 

Have a great day and I will see you at 9am,

Miss Wilding laugh

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task

Today we are going to continue looking at pie charts; however, instead of using our fractions knowledge today we are going to use our percentage knowledge.

 

Remember:

100% = 1 whole

To find 10% we divide by 10

To find 1% we divide by 100.

We can apply this knowledge to work out all other percentages.

 

Example:

This pie chart shows the results of 60 children who were asked their favourite chocolate bars.

Here I can see that 40% of the children chose Twix. 30% chose Aero. 20% chose Mars. 10% chose Bounty.

 

How many children chose Twix?

Well I need to work out 40% of 60.

 

I will start by finding 10%

60 ÷ 10 = 6

 

I now know that 6 children = 10%. To find 40% I need to multiply my answer by 4.

 

6 x 4 = 24.

 

24 chose Twix.

 

Work carefully through the questions in the worksheet below.

Guided Reading:

Today I would like you to read Chapter Six again and pay particular attention to the part where the children arrive at Mr Tumnus’ house. What are they met with? I want you to write a short setting description of how the children find Mr Tumnus’ house. Make sure to use key ideas from the chapter to help you with your descriptions and ideas.

 

If you need help getting started use my opener below and then carry on with your ideas:

On arriving at Mr Tumnus’ house the children were shock with what they saw: it was not the lovely, inviting cave house that Lucy had described.

 

Chapter Six: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxAqIzQBuaA

English:

Today you are going to begin writing up your non-chronological reports.

I would like you to really think about how you are going to write them up and set them out, therefore I do not expect your reports to be finished today.

 

I would like you to complete your:

  • Introduction
  • Paragraph on appearance
  • Paragraph on habitat

 

Please watch the video before starting, to give you some ideas on how to write your introduction: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-write-the-opening-of-a-non-chronological-report-68u3ce

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to do French and RE.

 

French

In French today you are going to be looking at the celebration of Mardi Gras. 

 

Today Mrs Hughes would like you to work through the PowerPoint below and watch the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBBB73HyWFw&feature=youtu.be 

 

Then you are going to design either your own poster or Mardi Gras mask to advertise the next Nice Carnival - 'Roi des Animaux'. 

RE

Our RE focus question this term is -What matters most to Christians and Humanists?

Today we are going to continue looking at our LC6: To debate a moral issue.

 

Remember morals are standards of behaviour and the idea of doing right and wrong.

Rewatch this video here to help you understand how Humanists approach morals and doing right and wrong: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tpL1K8ZqrU

 

Remember when we debate something, we are often either on the for side or on the against side.

 

Today you are going to continue debating on your moral issue from last week. You are going to think of all the reasons on the against side and then write up your ideas in to a paragraph. 

 

You will have chosen either one of the moral issue below, or chosen one of your own:

  • Taking the dog out for a walk even though it is raining.
  • Taking money out my brother’s piggy bank.
  • Lying to my parents and pretending I didn’t break the vase.

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 10th February 2021

Good morning Year 6, I hope you have all been having a great week so far. 

 

Remember tomorrow is spelling test day, so make sure you go on to SpellingShed today for some final practise before tomorrow. 

 

Check out today's tasks below and see you at 9am, 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to move on to reading and interpreting information from pie charts.

When reading pie charts we need to know that the full circle is representing our whole.

When reading pie charts we need to work with our fraction or percentage knowledge. Today we are going to be using fractions.

 

For example:

This pie chart shows the eye colour of 28 pupils in a class.

We have to think about the size of each section in fractions.

Here I can see that ½ off my class have blue eyes.

¼ have green eyes and ¼ have brown eyes.

I know ½ of 28 = 14. So 14 children in this class have blue eyes.

I know ¼ of 28 = 7. So 7 children in this class have brown eyes and 7 children have green eyes.

 

When working through you question today think carefully about the fraction size of each section in the pie chart and what the whole number is.

 

Work carefully through the questions in the worksheet below.

Guided Reading:

Today you will be answering questions based on Chapter Six. Remember to read through the text as you do this and use evidence from the text to support your answers. Please write your answers using full sentences.

 

Chapter Six: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxAqIzQBuaA

English:

Today in English you are going to plan out your own non-chronological report.

 

Watch me: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-gather-information-for-a-non-chronological-report-c8w34c?activity=video&step=1

As always when watching today’s video, I really want you to engage with the teacher in the video and think carefully about what she is discussing and asking.

 

When planning out your own non-chronological reports, you do not need to do them on pandas (although as you have found out a lot of information from today’s video this would be helpful for your plan) but, I would like you to do them on an animal.

 

When planning out your non-chronological report today, you need to think about gathering information for:

  • Your introduction
  • Your main body – this will include information on where the animals live (habitat), what the animals eat (diet), what the animals may look like and if they have any special adapted features (appearance)
  • Did you know? / Fun facts sections
  • Conclusion – this section should wrap up your report and consider the future of your animal

Think about the key features we identified for a non-chronological report in yesterday's lesson and think about this when planning today.

Try to start thinking about key topic words for your animal too e.g. carnivorous, herbivore, hibernate, native, adaptions, characteristics, endangered, extinction

 

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to be doing Science.

 

Today we are going to be looking at LC5: To describe the ways in which water and nutrients are transported around the body. 

 

Please read all the information in the PowerPoint carefully and watch the two video links too. You task is outlined on the last slide. 

 

 

 

Tuesday 9th February 2021

Good morning Year 6 - I hope you all had a great start to your day yesterday!

I saw some great Venn diagrams in the afternoon and hoped you enjoyed finding out about those 3 different locations. 

 

Makes sure to check out today's tasks below and read through them carefully. 

Have a great day and see you at 9am,

Miss Wilding laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to continue looking at line graphs and think how we can use them to solve problems.

 

Remember when using line graphs it is really important we first take our time to understand what the line graph is showing and telling us. Make sure when completing your work today, you take time to carefully look at each line graph before beginning on the questions. It is also really important that we are very careful and precise when working with reading line graphs. Today try zooming in on the line graphs to make sure you can see all the information precisely.

 

Work carefully through the questions in the worksheet below.

 

Guided Reading:

Today, I would like you to define the words in the document below. You can use a dictionary, the internet or an Alexa/Siri to help you. I also want you to find out what type of word it is too (noun, verb …).

 

Once you have defined all of these words, I would like you to then read chapter six again and think about each of these words when you come across them and how your understanding of these words develops when you read them in the sentences.

 

If there are any other words you come across that you are unsure of make sure to look them up too.

 

Chapter Six: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxAqIzQBuaA

English:

This week in English, we are going to be working towards creating our own non-chronological reports. This is a factual piece of writing that is not written in date or time order.

 

For today’s lesson we are going to review the key features of a non-chronological report.

Watch the video: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-analyse-the-features-of-a-non-chronological-report-6cv3ar?activity=video&step=1

As always, I want you to engage with the video, really thinking about what the teacher is telling you and also asking you.

 

Please think carefully about all of the different features discussed today, as you will need to include these in your own reports later in the week. It might be a good idea to make a note of some of these and any key words, such as the conjunctions, you would like to use in your own pieces.

 

Have a look at the report below and see if you can identify the different key features of a non-chronological report.

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing Art.

 

Last week in art, you drew out two identical pictures. Today, you are going to spend your art session colouring these two images in. You need to read the instructions below carefully on how you need to colour in each picture. 

 

For one of your pictures, I would like you to only use a pencil or black pencil crayon to shade/colour it in. It needs to be shaded in carefully and not just be left as an outline, try to get some depth into the picture, thinking about shadow.

 

Your second image needs to be coloured in using colour. You can either do this as just one monochrome colour and think about the shading of it. Or, you can colour it in multicoloured.

 

** Try to use pencil crayons rather than felt tips today, as this will work better for getting different gradients of shading in to your pictures.  

 

This is your task for today, so take your time with it. Try to replicate the colouring style on both so if you have a darker patch on one try mimic it on your other picture. 

You should be finished today with one black and white copy of your picture and one coloured version of your picture. Take a look at the examples below on what you should end up with today - you can see that the black and white ones aren't just all the same shade throughout, try to get this shading effect in to your picture. 

 

I would like you to keep these pictures somewhere safe, as we will be finishing off this art project off after the half term. 

 

 

 

 

Monday 8th February 2021

 

Good morning Year 6 and happy Monday! smiley I hope you have all had a lovely weekend! 

We are into our final week of this term now and one step closer to being back together too!

I hope you all have a brilliant day! 

 

See you at 9am,

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task -

Today we are going to move on to looking at statistics in Maths this week. This is all about being able to read and interpret information from different types of graphs, charts and tables.

 

Today we are going to be looking at line graphs. Remember when understanding line graphs we need to know what both the axis are showing us.

Here I can see the bottom axis (X axis) is showing me the time and the Y axis is telling me the temperature. Where each small x is, that is the temperature recorded for that time. 

 

When reading line graphs you need to be really precise and careful.

Quite often we are asked to find the difference between two readings. To work out the difference we have to take the smaller reading away from the larger one. 

 

Example

What is the difference in temperature between 1pm and 3pm?

First of all, I need to work out the temperature for those times. 

1pm = 4˚C

3pm = 8˚C

The difference is 8-4 = 4˚C differences. 

 

Work carefully through the questions in the worksheet below.

Guided Reading:

Today, I would like you to read Chapter Six (this is attached below). You can read this on your own, with an adult if you have one who is free at home, or listen using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxAqIzQBuaA

English:

Today we are going to focus our English on SPaG. We are going to be looking at pronouns today. 

Work through the slides on the PowerPoint below and complete the tasks within.

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing Geography.

Today we are going to be comparing the similarities and differences of different locations around the world. 

 

It is important that you read through all the slides and information in the PowerPoint carefully. Today’s task is outlined in the PowerPoint and you will also need to used the pdf documents below too today. 

 

 

 

Friday 5th February 2021

Good morning Year 6 and happy Friday! Well done on another super week of home learning, the work I have seen from you this week has been brilliant! 

 

Don't forget your new spellings have gone up on SpellingShed today, and I have also added them in a document below for you too! 

 

Don't forget if you want to show your Science presentation this morning make sure to bring it along to our Meet.

 

Have a great day and I will see you at 9am. 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

We are going to have a refresh of long multiplication. Remember this is when we are multiplying by a two digit number and need to use our place holding zero. 

 

Example:

    123 

x    45

_______ (x 5)

______0 (x 40, but we x4 because I put in my place holding zero).

_______

 

First I multiply all the numbers (123) by 5, my answer goes on the top row. 

Then I multiply all the numbers (123) by 4, my answer goes on the second row, next to my place holding zero.

Finally I add the numbers together to get my answer. 

 

Have a look at the pictures below that show each stage of my working out. 

 

Now have a go at these questions below:

1. 56 x 32 =

2. 87 x 65 =

3. 132 x 85 =

4. 109 x 76 =

5. 2465 x 32 = 

 

Main Task –

Complete the arithmetic paper attached below. Please note that today we have gone on to the extension arithmetic papers this week. The set out of some questions is different, but as always try your best and think about what you know carefully. Show all your workings and take your time. smiley

Guided Reading:   

Today I want you to read from the paragraph starting, “Sharps the word …”, to the end of Chapter 5. Have a think about what you think might happen next in the story. I want you to write down your ideas and predictions for today’s task.

 

Chapter Five: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWkFH-4-hlw

English:

Today you are going to complete your Reading Comprehension task. I would like you to read the text below. This week I have chosen a non-fiction text based on different inventions.  

 

Make sure to read the text carefully and use it while answering the questions. Read the questions carefully too and look for key words which tell you how to answer the question. Make sure to reread your answer and check you have actually answered the question that has been asked.

 

Once you have completed it I would like you to mark it. If you have made any mistakes please go back to the text and find where the support evidence to the answer was, to help you understand how it should have been answered.

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we will be doing PE and ICT.

 

For PE this week, we are going to link it to Children's Mental Health Week and expressing ourselves. Today I would like you to create your own interpretive dance routine to express emotions. This means you are going to show how you feel through dance. This could be how you are currently feeling or, you could create a small dance to show different types of emotions.

Miss Wilding laugh​​​​​​

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task

The measurements we have looked at in Maths so far this week have all been metric measurements, these are more modern types of ways to measure: cm, m, g, kg, ml etc.

However, sometimes we still opt to use older measurements and these are called imperial measurements. These are measurements like: inches, feet, miles, ounces, pounds etc.

 

Today we are going to be converting between metric and imperial measurements.

For example if someone said I walk 5miles today, some people may want to know how far that was in km.

 

Today we are going to focus on converting miles to km and vice versa.

For today we need to know that 5miles is approximately 8km.

 

Using this knowledge I can out different conversions too.

 

Example:

 

10miles is approximately 16km (because I have doubled)

2.5miles is approximately 4km (because I have halved)

20miles is approximately 32km (because I have multiplied by 4) 

 

If I know the speed limit is 30miles an hour. How far is that in km?

Well I know 10miles is approximately 16km. So to work out 30miles I would have multiply by 3.

 

10 x 3 = 30

16 x 3 =

 

Therefore 30mph is approximately 46kmph

 

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/505789895

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

Today I would like you to read Chapter Five again. The today we are going to think about the conversation Peter and Susan have with the professor. I would like you to create a comic book strip for the part of the story. Thinking about why the two children go to the professor in the first place and how they take his response.

 

Chapter Five: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWkFH-4-hlw

English:

Today you are going to be writing up your newspaper articles for the Barleycorn Express reporting on the arrival of Greenling in your town. Remember to use your plans and ideas from yesterday to help you in your writing today.

 

Your article should:

  • Be written in the past tense
  • Have a catchy headline
  • Cover who, what, where and when in the introduction
  • Give more detail on why and how in the main body
  • Include a direct speech quote
  • Include an indirect speech quote
  • A good concluding paragraph to your report
  • You can also add in an image and caption

 

You may use my template or just create your own layout. I can’t wait to see how these turn out.

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to do French and RE.

 

French

In French today you are going to start looking at how to give directions. This links to your work from last week, as you will be able to give directions around your own ideal town.

 

First of all, Mrs Hughes would like you to watch the following video to introduce yourselves to the different words and phrases you will need to give directions. Make sure to watch, listen and repeat several times to really pick up on the words:

https://youtu.be/OWyzOK0tGYw

 

Then watch the following video from BBC Teach. How many direction phrases and names of buildings can you hear? Can you write down which way they go and which buildings they find on their way to the café?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/french-ks2-following-directions/z6r3cqt

 

 

** I have also left the games from last week for your to have a go at again too should you wish to.

https://www.french-games.net/frenchgames/spelling-game?topic=Place%20-%20places%20in%20town&level=primary

RE

Our RE focus question this term is -What matters most to Christians and Humanists?

Today we are going to look at our LC6: To debate a moral issue.

 

Morals are standards of behaviour and the idea of doing right and wrong.

Watch this video here to help us understand how Humanists approach morals and doing right and wrong: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tpL1K8ZqrU

 

When we debate something, we are often either on the for side or on the against side, and will argue our opinions. 

 

Today you are going to begin debating on a moral issue.

 

You can either choose your own moral issue, or choose one from the list below:

  • Taking the dog out for a walk even though it is raining.
  • Taking money out my brother’s piggy bank.
  • Lying to my parents and pretending I didn’t break the vase.

 

 

Then today, I want do to think of all the reasons on the for side and then write out a paragraph to explain your ideas.

We are going to do the against side next week, so please only do the for side today. 

 

 

Wednesday 3rd February 2021

Good morning Year 6 please see below for today's tasks and I will see you all at 9am. 

 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to be applying our knowledge of measure and converting measurements to problems. That means today we are going to have to really think carefully about what our questions are asking us to do and what we know that will help us get the answers.

 

Example:

Sally and John are running laps around the park. 1 lap is 300m.

 

Sally runs 4 laps. How far does she run in m and km.

 

So first of all I need to work out what I am being asked. I know 1 lap is 300m and say runs 4, therefore I have to do 300 x 4.

 

300 x 4 = 1200

Remember this was 300m so my answer is still in m at the moment too. 1200m.

 

The question also asks me how far it is in km. I know that there are 1000m in 1km. So I have to do 1200 ÷ 1000 to get my answer in km.

 

1200 ÷ 1000 = 1.2

 

Sally runs 1200m or 1.2km

 

Example:

Simon has 2L of orange juice. He drinks 400ml and then shares the rest equally between 8 glasses.

How much juice is there in each glass.

So first here I need to work out how much juice is left after Simon has had his drink. I need to do 2L – 400ml, but I can’t at the minute because they are in different units. So first, I need to know how many ml in 2L.

 

There are 1000ml in 1L. So I have to do 2 x 1000.

 

2 x 1000 = 2000

 

Now I can work out how much is left.

 

2000 – 400 = 1600

 

There is 1600ml left and I share it between 8. Remember share in maths means divide.

 

1600 ÷ 8 = 200ml

 

There is 200ml in each glass.

 

Watch this video which explains more and work through the example questions within the video to help you too: https://vimeo.com/504806436

 

Complete the questions below.

 

Guided Reading:

Today you will be answering questions based on Chapter Five. Remember to read through the text as you do this and use evidence from the text to support your answers. Please write your answers using full sentences.

 

Chapter Five: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWkFH-4-hlw

English:

Today in English you are going to plan out your ideas for a newspaper article. The article is going to be published in the Barleycorn Express on the day after Greenling arrived.

 

Have a think about what the newspaper article would be reporting.

  • You will have to think of a catchy headline.
  • Think about your introduction and the 5Ws and H (who, what, where, when, why and how).
  • Your main body of the article should include more details of the event, as well as include quotes. You will have to think about using direct and indirect speech. Who might you ask? What might they say?
  • How will you conclude you article. Could you talk about the current situation or what the next plans are on the situation?

 

Remember today you are just planning out your ideas. Take a look at the PowerPoint below to remind yourself of the key features a newspaper needs. Remember you are writing an article about the arrival of Greenling in Barleycorn Town.

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to be carrying out another of our Children's Mental Health Week activities. On Monday, we expressed ourselves through music and today, we are going to think about how we can express ourselves through writing. Often people use poetry as a way of writing about and expressing their emotions.

 

Take a look at this video here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks1-ks2-understanding-poetry/zf8m382

 

Today you are going to create your own poems to express different emotions you may feel. 

 

I want you to start of by thinking about all the different emotions you may have felt over the past year. Try to write down at least 10 different emotions.

Then I want you to write down how you know you feel that way - How does your body react? How do you start to act? How would you describe how it feels to be happy, or angry or confused?

Then write down what specific things you tend to do when you feel those emotions. What sorts of activities might you do when you are feeling that particular way? How might you act when you feel that way?

 

You are now going to use all of these ideas to create your poem. 

 

Each line of your poem will start, 'When I feel ... '

 

I want you to add in an emotion and then write down the ideas of how you might feel inside, how you might act or what you might do. 

 

e.g.

When I feel nervous, I get all wobbly inside. "Are there butterflies in my stomach?" I will ask myself. My palms will start to sweat and my knees might start to shake. "I'm not nervous, I'm fine," I snap to my friends, pretending to them that everything is okay, even though the colours already drained from my face. I will quickly find something to distract myself, to take my mind of it. But, is it really going to be that bad? I dread to think. 

 

Try to include at least 6 different emotions in your poem and expand your ideas for each one like I have above. Try to use descriptive language and even figurative too! 

 

I can't wait to see what you write. 

 

For example 

 

 

Tuesday 2nd February 2021

Good morning Year 6 - I hope you all had a great start to your week yesterday!
 

It was great to see so many of you had taken the time the watch the Children's Mental Health Week assembly. If you missed it, you can find it here: https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/news/watch-our-children-s-mental-health-week-assembly-with-bafta-kids-and-oak-national-academy/ 

I also loved seeing and hearing the great music pieces you composed yesterday based on different emotion - you've done a brilliant job!
 

Make sure to check out today's task below and I will see you at 9am today,

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to carry on looking at measurements and we are going to convert between them today. This means being able to say how many mm in 5cm. Or how many kg, 150g is.

 

You will need to know and remember the following facts:

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/504805400

 

Complete the questions below. Use the information above and from the video to help you with your workings out.

Guided Reading:

 

Today, I would like you to define the words in the document below. You can use a dictionary, the internet or an Alexa/Siri to help you. I also want you to find out what type of word it is too (noun, verb …).

 

Once you have defined all of these words, I would like you to then read chapter five again and think about each of these words when you come across them and how your understanding of these words develops when you read them in the sentences.

 

If there are any other words you come across that you are unsure of make sure to look them up too.

 

Chapter Five: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWkFH-4-hlw

English:

Today in English we are going to continue looking at Greenling. Today I want you to start thinking about the themes the author Levi Pinfold uses in the story.

 

Watch me: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-analyse-themes-6cr3ar?activity=video&step=1

 

As always, today I want you to really listen to and engage with the teacher in the video. Today I want you also to develop your own concept map of the themes in Greenling as you work your way through the video. Use all the ideas and discussion to help you build up your map.

 

Once you have created your concept map, I want you to use it to help you answer the following question for today (please make sure you take your time with developing a fully formed and considered answer):

 

What are the main themes of Levi Pinfold’s ‘Greenling’ are and do you think they are important?

 

 

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing Art.

 

Today in art we are going to be moving away from our self-portraits and Picasso, and begin looking at Pop Art. 

 

Today I would like you to choose your favourite cartoon character and then on an A4 size piece of paper draw it out. You are just going to do the outline (no shading or colouring). It would be best if you did you drawing fairly big, filling the whole page (see images below for examples). 

Once you have done that, you are going to do the exact same thing again. You need to create two exact replicas of the same image (just the outlines, no shading or colouring).

 

This is your task for today, so take your time with it trying to get them the same on each piece of paper as possible. Once you have done this make sure you keep them both somewhere safe until next week’s lesson as you will need to use them then for the next stage of this piece of work.

 

 

Monday 1st February 2021

**Please see below for a change to our Meet time today!
 

Good morning Year 6 and happy February! I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.

 

This week is a very important week as it is ‘Children’s Mental Health Week’, which we will be taking part in at various points throughout our week. The week is being kick started with a virtual assembly, which is taking place at 9am this morning. This is a national assembly and not just exclusive to our school - if you would like to take part follow this link: https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/news/watch-our-children-s-mental-health-week-assembly-with-bafta-kids-and-oak-national-academy/ 

 

As the assembly is taking place at 9am, to ensure those of you who wish to take part can, we are going to push back our Meet today to 10:30am. I hope this works okay for everyone. We will resume our normal Meet time of 9am tomorrow. 

 

You will also see that instead of some of our usual afternoon activities this week, we will be carrying out special tasks instead, starting with this afternoon – make sure to take a good look at the task below for our first Children’s Mental Health Week activity.

 

I hope you all have a great week and I will see you at 10:30am.

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to move on from fractions (we will review these once we are all back together again) and move on to measure.

 

Today we are going to familiarise ourselves with units of measure we already know and when we would and could use them and when we wouldn’t and couldn’t use them.

 

Before watching the video, have a think about the units of measure you already know and when you think you might use them.

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/504804646

 

Complete the questions below. Any questions where you may get a varying answer we will discuss in our morning meet tomorrow.

 

Guided Reading:

Today, I would like you to read Chapter Five (this is attached below). You can read this on your own, with an adult if you have one who is free at home, or listen using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWkFH-4-hlw

English:

Today we are going to focus our English on SPaG. We are going to be looking at common and proper nouns today.

Work through the slides on the PowerPoint below and complete the tasks within.

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be carrying out our first Children’s Mental Health week activity. The main theme of the week is all about expressing yourself and how we can do this in different ways.

 

Today, we are going to look at how we can express ourselves and our emotions through music.

 

Watch this video clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sELz0aCx9Lw

 

When listening to the different pieces in the clip, did you feel different emotions? Why do you think this is?

 

Have a think about how different sounds make you feel.

What sounds might make you feel:

  • Happy
  • Sad
  • Annoyed
  • Excited
  • Frightened
  • Playful

 

Have a go this afternoon at composing your own piece or pieces of music to express different emotions. This could be a separate piece for each different emotion or one long piece that explores multiple different emotions within it. Have a think about all the different emotions and how you could represent them in music. Maybe try using some more difficult emotions like shy, quizzical, curious or embarrassed too.

 

It would be great if you could show me the pieces you create by sending me a video or mp3 of your finished pieces. 

 

 

Friday 22nd January 2021

Have a great day and I will see you at 9am! 

 

Miss Wilding smiley

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

We are going to have a refresh of converting decimals in to a percentage. When we do this it is always useful to think of what our decimal is as a fraction first.

 

I know that the place value columns of my decimal numbers are either tenths, hundredths or thousandths and so I can easily convert them in to fractions.

 

e.g. 0.3 here I have 3 in my tenths columns, so I have 3/10

      0.02 here I have 2 in my hundredths column, so I have 2/100

      0.46 here I have 4 in my tenths column and 6 in my hundredths column, so I have 46/100

 

Once I know what my decimal is as a fraction, I can change it to a percentage. I know percent means out of 100, so I simply need to change my fractions in to hundredths if it isn’t already and I have my answer.

 

e.g. 0.3 = 3/10

      3/10 = 30/100  (I have multiplied my bottom by 10 to make it in to hundredths so I have done the same to the top)

     30/100 = 30% (I know percent means out of 100, so 30/100 = 30%)

 

0.02 = 2/100 = 2%

0/46 = 46/100 = 46%

 

Try changing these decimals into fractions:

 

  1. 0.67
  2. 0.4
  3. 0.78
  4. 0.09
  5. 0.73

 

Main Task –

Complete the arithmetic paper attached below.

Guided Reading:   

Today I want you to think about how Lucy would have felt when she first saw Edmund in Narnia. Write a thought bubble as Lucy today, showing what she would be thinking! Remember like yesterday, this will be in first person and present tense.

 

Chapter Four: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLq59nT56bU

English:

Today you are going to complete your Reading Comprehension task. I would like you to read the text below. This week I have chosen a fiction text by Arthur Conan Doyle – do you recognise this name from this term at all?

 

Make sure to read the text carefully and use it while answering the questions. Read the questions carefully too and look for key words which tell you how to answer the question. Make sure to reread your answer and check you have actually answered the question that has been asked.

 

Once you have completed it I would like you to mark it. If you have made any mistakes please go back to the text and find where the support evidence to the answer was, to help you understand how it should have been answered.

 

**All of the text, questions and answers are in one document today! 

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we will be doing PE and ICT.

 

Last week you came up with some great ideas for your own circuits in PE – well done!

For PE today, you are going to be creating your own gymnastics routine.

 

First of all I want you to take a look at the routine below. Have a go at following it, try doing it several times and vary which options you choose.

 

Once you have had a go at the routine below, I want you to create your own routine. I want your routine to include at least one of each: a travel, a roll, a balance and a jump.

 

Use the routine below to help you with some ideas.

 

** When carrying out your routines today, I want you to think very carefully about the moves you do, where you do them and if you should do certain moves without being supervised by an adult.

At the side click Level 6, then more complex variable.  Today you are going to work through the third lesson ‘toy shop till’. Make sure to watch the explanation video first and then have a go yourself. 

 

 

Friday afternoons in school would mean it is Golden Time, it is important that you make some time to reward yourself for  all the hard work you have put in this week. However, I would like you to try and do this without the use of ‘screen time’, think about activities you could do such as colouring, reading, board games or getting creative! Let me know what you decide to do and if you have any ideas you could share with the rest of us.

 

 

Thursday 28th January 2021

Good morning Year 6 - I hope you are all doing well. 

 

Remember today is Thursday, so you need to find some time today to carry out your spelling test. I have attached this week's words below for you to use. Your new spellings will go up on SpellingShed tomorrow. 

 

Have a great day and I will see you at 9am,

Miss Wilding laugh

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task

Today we are going to be looking at comparing and ordering fractions. Remember comparing and ordering is looking at which one is more than (bigger) or less than (smaller) the other fraction or fractions.

 

Example

 

5/8 > 2/8

 

5/8 more than 2/8

 

When comparing fractions, they must have the same denominator. If they don’t, we must find a common denominator first.

 

5/8     and    11/16

 

At the minute I have different denominators so I must find a common denominator. I can change 8 in 16. Remember whatever I do to the bottom, I must do to the top.

 

5/8 = 10/16

 

10/16 < 11/16

 

10/16 less than 11/16

 

5/8 < 11/16

 

**Remember the open side of your signs (< and >) will always face the bigger fractions.

 

Ordering:

 

When ordering fractions, your denominators must be the same too. If they are not you must convert them in to having a common denominator first too.

 

Example

 

3/4,   11/12,  2/6

 

Here I can use 12 as my common denominator.

 

3/4 = 9/12

2/6 = 4/12

 

If I was asked to order them biggest to smallest I know the order now would be:

 

11/12,  3/4,   2/6

 

Remember to order the original fractions in your answer, not the converted ones.

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/470094736

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

Today I would like you to read Chapter Four again. I want you to imagine that you are Edmund. Write a thought bubble of what Edmund was thinking and feeling when he first got in to the sledge and then how this changed when he was given the hot drink and Turkish Delight.

 

Remember a thought bubble is what that person is thinking to themselves right there and then, so your writing will be in first person and present tense today.

 

Chapter Four: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLq59nT56bU

English:

Today we are going to carry on looking at ‘Greenling’. Yesterday, I saw some great ideas on how you think the old man and woman would have reacted when they first met Greenling.

 

Today we are going to think about how their reactions of Greenling might change and how other people in the town might respond to Greenling as well.

 

Watch me: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-analyse-a-text-71j3ce?activity=video&step=1

 

Work your way through the video today and when the teacher is asking you to pause and think and develop your own ideas and questions I really want you to engage with this and do this.

 

Once you have watched the video, I want you to think about the final task in the video think about how you would respond to the following questions:

 

  • How does Greenling change the town of Berleycorn?
  • Why and how do the opinion of the townspeople change?

 

I want you to think carefully about your answers, writing an expanded answer with fully developed ideas. Remember to use evidence from the text and images to help you write your answer.

 

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to do French and RE.

 

French

In French today you are going to design your own town. But first, I want you to have a go at these games below, to practise the places you might find in a town first.

 

https://www.french-games.net/frenchgames/four-in-a-row?topic=Place%20-%20places%20in%20town&level=primary

 

https://www.french-games.net/frenchgames/sow-grow?topic=Place%20-%20places%20in%20town&level=primary

 

https://www.french-games.net/frenchgames/spelling-game?topic=Place%20-%20places%20in%20town&level=primary

 

Once you have had a go at the games and practised the key words you will need today, you are going to create a plan of your own town which you are going to label (in French).

 

You will need to give your town plan a title, this could be either ‘My Town / Ma Ville’ or ‘My Ideal Town/ Ma Ville Idéale’.

 

Have a look at the examples in the documents below and also take a look at the key words in the documents below to help you with your labelling too.

 

RE

Our RE focus question this term is -What matters most to Christians and Humanists?

Today we are going to look at our LC5: To write advice to help someone who is thinking about making a bad choice.

 

Today you are going to be thinking about our past few lessons, looking at making good and bad choices, thinking about the outcomes of these decisions, thinking about fairness, justice, freedom and forgiveness.

 

Today you are going to write to someone, offering them advice as you know they are thinking about making a bad choice.

I want you to think about what you would say to them. I want you to cover feelings (of them and others involved), I want you to think of the outcomes and consequences (for them and others involved). I want you to think about how one choice may affect the future (of them and others involved). Think about how you may incorporate the ideas of fairness, justice, freedom and forgiveness within you advice. Remember you are offering someone advice, but not telling them what to do. You do what them to think though, so you may wish to included rhetorical questions.

 

e.g. Have you considered … ? Have you thought about … ? Is it worth … ?

 

 

Wednesday 27th January 2021

Good morning Year 6! Well done on another super day yesterday. It was great to see so many of your finished Picasso pieces, they all look fantastic. 

 

I am so pleased that you have enjoyed beginning the work on Greenling in English too. I have seen lots of great ideas and questions being asked about what might happen next and what the moral to this story is going to be. 

 

Remember today is Wednesday, which means you have one more day to practise your spellings before you test tomorrow! Don't forget to tell me how you are getting on with your reading too and what books you have read recently. 

 

Have a great day and see you at 9am.

Miss Wilding laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to use our knowledge of finding fractions of amounts from yesterday, to find the whole if we know a fraction of it.

 

Example

 

What is the whole if 2/5 is 30?

 

 

 

 

 

                       2/5  =  30

 

I am going to use the bar model above to help me today. My whole bar represent my whole, this is what I am trying to work out today.

 

I know that 2/5 equal 30.

Therefore I know 1/5 must be 15 (30 ÷ 2, because I have 2/5)

 

15

15

15

15

15

 

I know that in one whole there are five 1/5. So I know I have 5 lots of 15. So my whole must be 15 x 5.

 

15 x 5 = 75

 

Example 2

 

What is the whole if 3/5 is 30?

 

 

 

 

 

                                  3/5 = 30

 

I know 3/5 = 30

There for 1/5 = 10 (30 ÷ 3, because I have 3/5)

 

10

10

10

10

10

 

I know that in one whole there are five 1/5. So I know I have 5 lots of 10. So my whole must be 10 x 5.

 

10 x 50= 50

 

Watch this video which explains more: https://vimeo.com/480708847

 

Complete the questions below.

 

Guided Reading:

Today you will be answering questions based on Chapter Four. Remember to read through the text as you do this and use evidence from the text to support your answers. Please write your answers using full sentences.

 

Chapter Four: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLq59nT56bU

English:

Today in English, we are going to carry on looking at the book ‘Greenling’ by Levi Pinfold. We are going to be focusing on different characters in the story and how they react, thinking about what they say and do, to Greenling in the story.

 

Watch me: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-analyse-character-6mw38d?activity=video&step=1

 

Work your way through the video today and when the teacher is asking you to pause and think and develop your own ideas and questions I really want you to engage with this and do this.

 

Once you have watched the video, I want you to have a think about the reactions of the old man and the old lady when they first meet Greenling. What do you think they would say, feel and do?

 

Write a short paragraph of the old man’s reaction and then of the old woman’s reaction.

I want you to write in past tense and first person. I want you to use ‘show don’t tell’ ideas and think about how you could change up your clause structures too.

Finally, I want you to compare the two reactions.  How are they the same and how are they different?

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to be doing Science.

 

Today, you are going to be looking back over the last two lessons we have done, focusing on the circulatory and respiratory system. Today you are going to create a presentation, to share your knowledge and understanding of the two systems and how they work together.

 

In your presentation, I want to see specific scientific vocabulary being used. I want to see diagrams and explanations too.

 

You can present this in anyway, using PowerPoint, creating a poster, perhaps even creating a model? It is up to you, but it must be accurate and informative.

 

You will be sharing and presenting them next week.

 

 

Tuesday 26th January 2021

Good morning Year 6, I hope you all had a good start to your week yesterday! 

 

Take a look below at the settlement Mrs Devney created in Geography yesterday. Can you work out what type of settlement it is and its key functions?

 

Have a great day and I will see you at 9am. 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to be looking at finding fractions of amounts.

 

Remember to do this we divide by the bottoms and times by the top.

 

Example:

 

2/5 of 125

 

Step one – divide by the bottom

 

125 ÷ 5 = 25

 

Step two – times by the top

 

25 x 2 = 50

 

2/5 of 125 = 50

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/480708541

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

 

Today, I would like you to define the words in the document below. You can use a dictionary, the internet or an Alexa/Siri to help you. I also want you to find out what type of word it is too (noun, verb …).

 

Once you have defined all of these words, I would like you to then read chapter four again and think about each of these words when you come across them and how your understanding of these words develops when you read them in the sentences.

 

If there are any other words you come across that you are unsure of make sure to look them up too.

 

Chapter Four: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLq59nT56bU

English:

Today in English, we are going to be moving on to looking at a new video to help us with our ideas and our writing. This week we are going to be thinking about a book called ‘Greenling’ by Levi Pinfold.

 

In today’s lesson you are going to focus on why it is important to be inquisitive when reading and asking your own questions about what is happening. As well as, developing your own opinions and predictions.

 

Watch me: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-engage-with-a-text-cnk3ed?activity=video&step=1

 

Work your way through the video today and when the teacher is asking you to pause and think and develop your own ideas and questions I really want you to engage with this and do this. Answering her questions and coming up with your own ideas. 

 

Then I want you to complete the task within the video too. Noting down what you like and dislike so far about the book. What might be puzzling you? This is where you might write down some questions you may have thought of, of things you want to know or find out about. And then finally, what does it remind you of?

 

Then finally I want to know your answer to the following question: What do you think will happen to Greenling? Do you think the old couple will look after him?

 

Let me know what you think about this book so far on Purple Mash, what are your first impressions? Are you intrigued? Do you think you will like this book and basing our English work on it this week?

 

 

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing Art.

 

Today, you are going to carry on with your Picasso pieces from last week. You should have your outline of your portrait complete, so now you can begin to colour.

 

Have a think about how Picasso added colour to his pieces. Are you going to go bold and bright or monochromatic (sticking with just one colour and using various shades)?

 

I can’t wait to see how they turn out.

 

 

Monday 25th January 2021

Good morning Year 6, I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and have managed to get outside and enjoy all the snow we have had! 

 

I hope you all have a great week! 

 

See you all at 9am, 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to review our knowledge of the four operations with fractions and you will also have to think about BIDMAS again today too.

 

Adding and Subtracting

Remember before we can add or subtract fractions we must make sure we have a common denominator. Whatever we have done to change our denominator, we must make sure we do the same to our numerator too.

 

Multiplying

Here we just times our numerators and then we multiply our denominators.

 

Dividing

Keep, Change, Flip

 

Remember, when dealing with mixed numbers, it is easier to change them in to improper fractions first before carrying out any calculations.

When dealing with integers (whole numbers) we change them in to a fraction by putting them over 1 first.

Where we can we simplify our answers and change any improper fractions back to mixed numbers.

 

Watch the video here to explain more and reviews the four operations with fractions and BIDMAS: https://vimeo.com/480708159

 

Complete the questions below.

 

Guided Reading:

 

Today, I would like you to read Chapter Four (this is attached below). You can read this on your own, with an adult if you have one who is free at home, or listen using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLq59nT56bU

English:

 

Today we are going to focus our English on SPaG. We are going to look at identifying different clauses and using clause to vary our sentence structures. 

Work through the slides on the PowerPoint below and complete the tasks within.

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to be doing Geography.

Today we are going to be looking at different settlements around the world and thinking how land is used in different ways.

It is important that you read through all the slides and information in the PowerPoint carefully. Today’s task is outlined in the PowerPoint.

 

 

Friday 22nd January 2021

 

Good morning Year 6, I hope you have all had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend! You have all worked so hard again this week, I am so impressed with the work I have seen and the level of effort you continue to show in our Meets! yes 

 

Today is of course Friday, so your new spellings are up on SpellingShed. As I pointed out yesterday, it would great to see a few more of you getting on and practising this week! Please see the document below for this week's spellings. 

 

I hope you all have a fantastic Friday and will see you at 9am - 

Miss Wilding laugh

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

We are going to have a refresh of finding fractions of amounts this morning.

 

e.g. 2/5 of 160

 

All we need to remember for these questions, is to ‘divide by the bottom, times by the top’.

 

So I would do 160 ÷ 5 (divide by the bottom) = 32

Then 32 x 2 (times by the top) = 64

 

Click this link if you need more help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WV0WRkm_XQY

 

Have a go at these Qs:

 

  1. 3/5 of 235
  2. 4/6 of 132
  3. 5/7 of 112
  4. 8/9 of 162
  5. 6/8 of 272

 

Main Task –

Complete the arithmetic paper attached below.

Guided Reading:   

Today I want you to think about what we have learnt about the Queen in Chapter 3. You are going to create a character profile over her. Make sure to include both her appearance and personality. You can present this however you wish, but try included both text and images in your work today.

 

Chapter Three: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WExLGiwxuE

English:

Today you are going to complete your Reading Comprehension task. I would like you to read the text below. This week I have chosen a non-fiction text based on the NHS for us to look at.

 

Make sure to read the text carefully and use it while answering the questions. Read the questions carefully too and look for key words which tell you how to answer the question. Make sure to reread your answer and check you have actually answered the question that has been asked. Also think about the techniques the teacher used in yesterday’s videos too.

 

Once you have completed it I would like you to mark it. If you have made any mistakes please go back to the text and find where the support evidence to the answer was, to help you understand how it should have been answered.

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we will be doing PE and ICT.

 

For PE today I would like you to create your own work out circuits. I want you to include at least 5 different exercise moves that will get your hearts pumping. Think about how many times you will do each move and how many times you will repeat your whole circuit.

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task

We are going to continue looking at dividing fractions by integers (whole numbers today).

Remember when we divide fractions, we think ‘keep, change, flip’

 

e.g. 5/6 ÷ 4 =

 

First, we always change our integer (whole number) in to a fraction: 

5/6 ÷ 4/1 =

Then we ‘keep, change, flip’:

5/6 x 1/4 = 5/24

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMZJKGyu-Kk

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

Today I would like you to read the part of Chapter Three, where Edmund goes into the wardrobe and finds Narnia. I want you to write a speech bubble of what Edmund would be thinking as he realised he was no longer in the wardrobe, but in fact in a wood just like Lucy had described.

 

Remember it will be first person and present tense.

 

Chapter Three: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WExLGiwxuE

English:

Today you are going to be using yesterday’s plans to write your letters.

Remember, you are writing a persuasive letter as the boy (so write in 1st person) to your father. You are writing to persuade him to let you leave the ‘Freak-Show’ and follow your dreams of becoming a carpenter.

 

Remember when writing to persuade, you really want to get your point across and make the reader see things from your point of view and feel how you do. Use lots of emotive language. You also want to direct statement and questions directly to the reader as well.

 

I can’t wait to read your letters later on.

 

 

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to do French and RE.

 

French

In French today you are going to continue looking at buildings in the town.  

 

Listen to this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zRAjXA8uJg  

Can you identify the buildings the girl is singing about?

 

Try mapping out the girl’s journey to school.

 

Use the worksheet below to help you with the spellings of the words.

Mrs Hughes says did any of you spot the mistake in the worksheet last week? It should be le café not la café – watch out for this in your task today. 

 

RE

Our RE focus question this term is -What matters most to Christians and Humanists?

Today we are going to look at our LC3: To build our understanding of the concepts of fairness, justice, forgiveness and free choice

 

Work through the slides in the PowerPoint below, you task is outlined within.

 

 

Wednesday 20th January 2021

Good morning Year 6 - I hope you all had a great day yesterday.

 

I saw some super pieces of art work from some of you yesterday, which was great! I can't wait to see how they develop over the next few lessons and see our finished pieces! smiley

 

Well done to those of you too, who have seen Mrs Devney in the afternoon this week, she has been very impressed with how hard you've been working from home. 

 

See below for today's tasks and I will see you all at 9am! 

 

Have a great day -

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today in Maths we are going to be looking at dividing fractions by integers (whole numbers).

 

e.g. 2/5 ÷ 3 =

 

Remember our first step when working with fractions and whole numbers is to change our whole numbers to fractions (we do this by putting them over one).

 

2/5 ÷ 3/1 =

 

Then remember ‘keep, change, flip’ : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLpaYFwthGY

 

So to do 2/5 ÷ 3/1 =

I would ‘keep, change, flip’.

 

I would first keep 2/5 the same.

Then I would change my divide ÷ into a multiply x

Finally I flip 3/1 to 1/3.

 

So I end up doing 2/5 x 1/3 = 2/15

 

Watch this video which explains more (it doesn’t use ‘keep, change, flip’, but it does show visually what is happening well using diagrams): https://vimeo.com/476254074

 

Complete the questions below.

 

 

Guided Reading:

Today you will be answering questions based on Chapter Three. Remember to read through the text as you do this and use evidence from the text to support your answers. Please write your answers using full sentences.

 

Chapter Three: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WExLGiwxuE

English:

Today in English we are going to continue looking at the video ‘Little Freak’.

I am sure you will agree with me that from the video, we are on the young boy’s side. We feel very sorry for him and can’t believe his father is okay to treat him like that, especially when the young boy expresses to his father how unhappy he is.

 

Today you are going to plan out a persuasive letter to write to the father from the boy. Therefore, you are writing in 1st person, as the young boy. You are going to be writing to persuade him to let you out of the ‘Freak-Show’ and to follow your dream of working with wood.

 

Think about what you found out in the video yesterday that you may want to include in your letter. What might the boy say to persuade his father to let him leave the show and pursue his dreams?

 

Remember today you are just coming up with a plan (you can bullet point your ideas), you are not writing out the whole letter; however, your plan does need to be well thought out and detailed to help with tomorrow’s writing. Use the document below to help you set out your plan and structure your ideas for your writing tomorrow.

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to be doing Science.

 

Today we are going to look at the respiratory system – thinking about how does the oxygen we breathe in gets from the air, then our lungs and into our blood.

 

Work through the slides in the PowerPoint, your task is outlined within.

 

 

Tuesday 19th January 2021

 

Good morning Year 6, I hope you all had a great start to your week yesterday and hope that those of you who had your group with Mrs Devney in the afternoon enjoyed getting to review some areas from the past couple of weeks, as well as seeing Mrs Devney of course. Make sure you check out the timetable below and double check you can make your day - if they are any issues just let me know and I will sort it out. 

 

Can I ask as well that you only log on to our live Meets a few minutes before our sessions are due to start and that you keep your microphones off while waiting. Please can I also put out a gentle reminder to you as well Year 6, that while on our live Meets in the morning, I have the same expectations as if we were in school; therefore, I do not wish to see anyone sitting on their phones during our sessions in the morning. 

 

Have a great day and see you all at 9am,

Miss Wilding laugh

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to be multiplying fractions by integers (whole numbers).

 

Remember when we do this we first have to change our whole number in to a fraction first. This is easy, we can just put it over 1.

 

e.g. 3 = 3/1

 

So if I have 2/3 x 3 =

 

I would do:    2/3 x 3/1 =

I then just times my numerators and denominators: 2/3 x 3/1 = 6/3

I can simplify 6/3 to 2.

 

If I have a mixed number times a whole number, I need to remember to changed my mixed number in to an improper fraction first and my whole number in to a fraction too.

 

So if I have 1 2/5 x 4 =

I would do 7/5 x 4/1 =

I then just times my numerators and denominators: do 7/5 x 4/1 = 28/5

I can simplify 28/5 to 5 3/5.

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/475426110 

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

 

I hoped you enjoyed seeing the story unfold a little more in Chapter 3 yesterday.

 

Today, I would like you to define the words in the document below. You can use a dictionary, the internet or an Alexa/Siri to help you. I also want you to find out what type of word it is too (noun, verb …).

 

Once you have defined all of these words, I would like you to then read chapter three again and think about each of these words when you come across them and how your understanding of these words develops when you read them in the sentences.

 

If there are any other words you come across that you are unsure of make sure to look them up too.

 

Chapter Three: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WExLGiwxuE

In English this week, we are going to be using the following video to help up with our tasks: https://vimeo.com/73825736 

 

Today I want you to watch the video carefully, you might want to watch it through a few times and then answer the questions in the document below. 

When answering the questions, I want you to write your answers in full, well-developed and detailed sentences. Really think about how the video has influenced your thoughts and feeling and try to get this across in your answers today. 

 

I can't wait to hear what you think about the video. 

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing Art.

Today you are going to have a go at creating your own Picasso inspired self-portraits. Remember a self-portrait is an image of you, done by you.

 

When drawing your image today, I want you to think about the artwork of Picasso’s you saw last week and try to replicate his style in your work today.

You are going to draw half of your portrait from the front and the other half from your side profile.

 

Remember Picasso’s artwork was very bright and colourful and he also played around with the position of key facial features too.

 

Take a look at the images below for inspiration.

 

Today I would expect you to complete the outline of your drawing - I want you to really take your time with it! We will be adding colour and finishing them off next week! 

 

 

Monday 18th January 2021

Good morning Year 6 - I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are ready for another week! 

 

Mrs Devney will be running some afternoon groups this week at 1:30pm each day, check out the timetable below to see what day you are on. 

 

Don't forget this week's spellings are up on SpellingShed and you should be finding a few moments in your week to practise them before your test on Thursday. I hope you are all managing to make some time for reading in your week too - don't forget to let me know about the books you have been reading!
 

Make sure to read through today's tasks set out below carefully and I will see you at 9am!

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today in Maths we are going to be looking at multiplying fractions by fractions.

Remember this is one of the easiest operations to do with fractions, as all you need to do is multiply the numerators and then multiply the denominators.

 

e.g. 2/3 x 3/5 = 6/15

 

If you can try to put your answer in to their simplest forms.

 

e.g.  2/6 x 6/8 = 12/48 = 1/4 

 

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/476253821

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

 

Today, I would like you to read Chapter Three (this is attached below). You can read this on your own, with an adult if you have one who is free at home, or listen using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WExLGiwxuE

English:

Today we are going to focus our English on SPaG. We are going to look at identifying phrases within sentences.

Work through the slides in the PowerPoint below and complete the tasks within.

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing Geography.

Today you are going to be looking at and locating different biomes and climate zones around the world. It is important that you read through all the slides and information in the PowerPoint carefully. Today’s task is outlined in the PowerPoint.

 

 

Friday 15th January 2021

Good morning everyone – I hope you have all had a fantastic week and are ready for a well-deserved rest this weekend! Don’t forget to let me know what you are getting up to. Let's keep our fingers crossed that this rainy weather clears up so we can get outside. 

 

Remember your new spellings have gone on to SpellingShed today and I have added them in a document below for you to use too.

 

See you all at 9am.

 

Have a great weekend,

Miss Wilding laugh

 

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

We are going to have a refresh of multiplying and dividing by 10, 100, 1000. Remember for these types of questions we do not need to use a formal written method. We simply either move our digits to the left (multiply) or right (dividing). The number of 0s tells us how many places we move our numbers.

 

10 = we move one place

100 = we move two places

1000 = we move three places

 

Remember when multiplying our number will get bigger. When dividing our number will get smaller. This is the sort of detail you should be checking at the end of your arithmetic paper.

 

E.g.

 

125 x 10 = 1250

125 ÷ 10 = 12.5

 

45 x 100 = 4500

45 ÷ 100 = 0.45

 

6.7 x 1000 = 6700

6.7 ÷ 1000 = 0.0067

 

Click this link if you need more help: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7r492p

 

Have a go at these Qs:

 

  1. 467 x 100 =
  2. 569 ÷ 10 =
  3. 8.9 x 10 =
  4. 16704 ÷ 1000 =
  5. 0.07 x 1000 =

 

Main Task –

Complete the arithmetic paper attached below.

Guided Reading:

 

Today I want you to think about Mr Tumnus and what we have found out about him so far and his character/personality. I want you to create a character profile of Mr Tumnus.

Include information on his appearance, his job, his home, his personality. Use the text to gather this information and use evidence where appropriate too.

 

You can present this however you like, but I would like a combination of writing and images too.  

 

Chapter Two: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0vUihS2KEQ

English:

Today you are going to complete your Reading Comprehension task. I would like you to read the text below.

 

Make sure to read the text carefully and use it while answering the questions. Read the questions carefully too and look for key words which tell you how to answer the question. Make sure to reread your answer and check you have actually answered the question that has been asked. Also think about the techniques the teacher used in yesterday’s videos too.

 

Once you have completed it I would like you to mark it. If you have made any mistakes please go back to the text and find where the support evidence to the answer was, to help you understand how it should have been answered.

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we will be doing PE and ICT.

 

For PE today I would like you to get your bodies moving and hearts pumping by following this routine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSi2ix1i180&list=PLyCLoPd4VxBuS4UeyHMccVAjpWaNbGomt

Pay attention to the different moves you are doing and how they link together as next week you will be creating your own workout circuit.

Today we are going to start looking at our first of the Year 6 lessons.

 

At the side click Level 6, then more complex variable.  Today you are going to work through the first lesson ‘shape shifting’. Make sure to watch the explanation video first and then have a go yourself. 

 

 

Friday afternoons in school would mean it is Golden Time, it is important that you make some time to reward yourself for  all the hard work you have put in this week. However, I would like you to try and do this without the use of ‘screen time’, think about activities you could do such as colouring, reading, board games or getting creative! Let me know what you decide to do and if you have any ideas you could share with the rest of us.

 

 

Thursday 14th January 2021

Good morning Year 6 - I hope you are all ready for another day of home learning! Today is Thursday so remember to carry out your spelling test at some point today. I have uploaded this week's words for you below to test yourselves with. Remember your new words will go up tomorrow.

 

Have a great day, I will see you all at 9am.

Miss Wilding laugh

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to look at subtracting mixed numbers.

 

When subtracting we can convert our mixed numbers in to improper fractions like we did yesterday. Then we need to check we have common denominators and finally we subtract them.

 

e.g. 3 2/5 – 1 1/2 =

 

17/5 – 3/2 =

My common denominator is 10 here. I need to think what do I do to 5 to get 10, then do the same to my numerator. Then think what do I do to 2 to get 10, then do the same to my numerator.

 

34/10 – 15/10 = 19/10

 

If you are confident, you can convert your answer back in to a mixed number.

 

19/10 = 1 9/10

 

Watch the video here which explains more: https://vimeo.com/471345369

 

Now complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

Today I would like you to think about the tea Mr Tumnus gave Lucy.

 

I would like you to create a poster today which would advertise: ‘Tea with Mr Tumnus’.

Think about the food that is offered, the entertainment and also the host.  

 

You could even try out some of these things for yourself and set up your own 'Tea with Mr Tumnus' - please make sure to check with your parents first though! 

 

Chapter Two: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0vUihS2KEQ

English:

Today in English you are going to complete your setting writing from yesterday if you have not already done so.

 

Then I would like you to watch this video: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-develop-a-rich-understanding-of-words-associated-with-cities-71k36c?activity=video&step=1

Think about how the teacher uses synonyms to up-level her sentences.

 

I want you to now go through your writing and see where you can up-level it. Could you do this by using more ambitious synonym choices? Adding in additional prepositional phrases? Varying your sentence structures and openers? Can you take any ideas from the videos you have watched this week? Finally, check through your spellings and punctuation choices.

 

When watching the film-clip, I can really see and feel the build-up of the atmosphere and tension within the scene and the setting too. Do we get that from your writing?

 

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to do French and RE.

 

French

In French this term you would have been looking at buildings in the town with Mrs Hughes.

 

Take a look at the following videos. Listen to the teacher and repeat the words back to her:

 

Listen up to 3 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBj8hF40dlY

Listen up to 3 minutes 30 seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVjLNBREqOo&t=233s

 

Once you have watched through the videos and had a go at practising and repeating the words back in French, have a go at the worksheet below matching the French and English words up.

 

 

RE

Our RE focus question this term is -What matters most to Christians and Humanists?

Today we are going to look at our LC2: To find out what a Humanist is.

 

Click on this link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/znk647h/articles/zmqpkmn

 

Watch the video clip and read through the information on what a Humanist is.

I would then like you to write up what you have found out today about Humanists. Can you compare them to any other religions you know about?

 

 

Wednesday 13th January 2021

Good morning everyone, well done on another super day of home learning yesterday. I really loved seeing all the great pieces of Art work you did yesterday afternoon on Picasso and all the interesting facts you found out! Imagine having 23 words in your name, I wonder if he ever forgot one?

 

Please see below for today's work and I will see you all at 9am. 

 

Miss Wilding laugh

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

 

Today we are going to be looking at mixed numbers, remember a mixed number is part whole, part fraction (1 ½ ).

 

When adding mixed numbers, we need to know how to convert a mixed number in to an improper fraction (top heavy fraction).

 

e.g. 1 1/2 = 3/2

 

We do this by multiplying the denominator by our whole number and then adding on the numerator.

 

e.g. 2 2/5  = 12/5

 

When we want to add mixed numbers we convert both mixed numbers in to improper fractions first.

 

You will then need to make sure they have the same denominator, if not find a common denominator.

 

The finally add them together.

 

e.g. 2 1/4 + 1 2/3 =

 

9/4 + 5/3 =

27/12 + 20/12 = 47/12

 

If you are confident, you can convert your answer back in to a mixed number.

 

47/12 = 3 11/12

 

Watch the video here which explains more: https://vimeo.com/471345176

 

Now complete the questions below.

 

Guided Reading:

Today you will be answering questions based on Chapter Two. Remember to read through the text as you do this and use evidence from the text to support your answers. Please write your answers using full sentences.

 

Chapter Two: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0vUihS2KEQ

English:

Today in English we are going to carry on thinking about describing  the setting of Victorian London.

Yesterday, you focused on the nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs you could use. Today I want you to think about how we could develop your writing even further by including prepositional phrases.

 

Watch and work through this video here, make sure to add some prepositional phrases to yesterday’s mind-map: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-generate-descriptive-vocabulary-cmv62c

Once you have watched the video and added some prepositional phrases to your mind-map, you are going to being your piece of writing.

 

You are going to base your piece of writing on the film-clip within the video. You can also use ideas you have gathered about Victorian London from the images and discussions in yesterday’s video too. I want your writing to really focus on the setting, make sure to use the vocabulary you have come up with on your mind-map, including the prepositional phrases you added in today.

 

If you are stuck on how to get started use my opener here:

Deep within the streets of London, a thick layer of smog blanketed the cobbled streets.

 

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to be doing Science and starting our new topic for the term focused around the question ‘What would a journey through your body look like?’

 

Today we are going to look at the circulatory system – thinking about what it is and identifying and naming parts of the body with in it.

 

Work through the slides in the PowerPoint, your task is outlined within.

 

 

Tuesday 12th January 2021

 

Good morning Year 6 - I hope you all had a great start to your week yesterday!

 

Please take a look below for today's tasks and I will see you at 9am. 

 

Have a great day, 

Miss Wilding laugh

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to continue looking at adding and subtracting fractions. Yesterday we looked at finding common denominators, as remember our denominators must be the same when adding and subtracting.

 

Sometimes you only need to change one fraction, but sometime you will need to change both.

 

Example

 

1/3 + 1/4 =

Here I cannot change my 3 in to the 4 or vice versa. We have to find a common multiple of 3 and 4. Remember, whatever you do to the bottom you must do to the top too.

 

4/12 + 3/12 = 7/12

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/471344877

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

I hoped you enjoyed getting to find out a bit more about Lucy and Mr Tumnus yesterday.

 

Today, I would like you to define the words in the document below. You can use a dictionary, the internet or an Alexa/Siri to help you. I also want you to find out what type of word it is too (noun, verb …).

 

Once you have defined all of these words, I would like you to then read chapter two again and think about each of these words when you come across them and how your understanding of these words develops when you read them in the sentences.

 

If there are any other words you come across that you are unsure of make sure to look them up too.

 

Chapter Two: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0vUihS2KEQ

English:

Today in English we are going to be expanding on the work we did yesterday on word classes to help us create a plan for a piece of writing we are going to do this week.

 

I want you to watch this video here: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-build-knowledge-of-the-historical-context-of-the-narrative-crt68r

Whilst watching it, I really want you to engage with the discussions and questions from the teacher and really think about what she is asking you.

 

Use the film clip within the video, as well as the images and the extra information shown and discussed to create a mind-map split in to the following heading: Nouns, Adjectives, Verbs and Adverbs. Add as many words and phrases to each section as you can to create a really detail vocabulary map that could be used when writing about Victorian London.

 

Make sure to ‘magpie’ lots of the teachers ideas and you can also use this online thesaurus too: https://kidthesaurus.com/

 

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to be doing some art. This term we were going to be looking at Pablo Picasso, some of you may have heard of him before.

 

For today’s task, I want you to create a fact file about Pablo Picasso. Find out key information about him and his life, when he became an artist, what kind of art he made, what are his most famous pieces, where can you find his pieces now?

 

You can present this however you wish. As it is art, it would be great to see you getting creative with how you set today’s work out. Use lots of fun shapes and colours for your information boxes and support your writing with illustrations.

 

You may find these links useful:

Monday 11th January 2021

 

Good morning Year 6, I hope you have all had a lovely weekend! I know at the moment there is a limited number of things we can do, but it is really important that we don't fall in to the trap of using all our free time on our screens! This weekend I went for a nice long walk around Clifton Country Park, it was very misty - take a look at the pictures I took below. What have you got up to this weekend?

 

Don't forget as well as the work outlined on our class page each day, I would like you to find some time in the week to practise your spellings on SpellingShed and do some reading too! 

 

Check out today's tasks below and here's to another great week!

 

See you all at 9am on Meets, 

Miss Wilding 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

This week we are going to move on to looking at adding and subtracting fractions.

The key thing to remember when adding and subtracting fractions is that your denominator (bottom) number must be the same before you can add or take away.

 

Example

2/5 + 1/5 = 3/5

Here as my denominator is 5 for both I can simply add my numerators together.

 

7/8 – 3/8 = 5/8

Here as my denominator is 8 for both I can simply subtract my numerators.

 

What if they’re not the same though? Remember we have to find a common denominator. This means a number that is a common multiple (a number in both their timestables).

 

1/4 + 2/8 =

 

Here I can change my 4 in to 8 by multiplying by 2. Remember whatever I do to the bottom I must do to the top too.

8/9 – 1/3 =

 

Here I can change my 3 in to 9 by multiplying by 3. Remember whatever I do to the bottom I must do to the top too.

Watch the video here to explain more: https://vimeo.com/470094960

 

Complete the questions below.

Guided Reading:

 

Today, I would like you to read Chapter Two (this is attached below). You can read this on your own, with an adult if you have one who is free at home, or listen using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0vUihS2KEQ

English:

 

Today we are going to focus our English on SPaG. We are going to look at different word classes and whether the same word can have more than one word class.

 

Work through the slides on the PowerPoint below and complete the tasks within.

Afternoon:

This afternoon we are going to do our first Geography lesson of the term. Today I want you to use your skills to identify positions of significance. You may have heard of some of these terms before and some you may not have done. It is important that you read through all the slides and information in the PowerPoint carefully. Today’s task is outlined in the PowerPoint.

Friday 8th January 2021

 

Good morning Year 6 and happy Friday! Well done on making it through a very strange first week of term and through your first week of home learning. I have been so impressed with how hard you have all worked this week and have loved getting to see you all in the morning during our Meets and seeing your work throughout the day via Purple Mash. If you have not yet had chance to send me anything, I would love to hear from you today and see how you have been getting on.

 

Your new spellings are now on SpellingShed and I have also added a document below of your spellings for this week, please could you let me know if you are having any trouble accessing your spellings via SpellingShed. Remember that it is important to find 15minutes or so a few times a week to jump on to SpellingShed and practise your spellings for that week, as well as reading at home too. As you know I love reading and would like to know what books you are getting stuck in to at home! 

 

Please see below for today's work and I will see you all at 9am. 

 

Have a lovely weekend - 

Miss Wilding laugh

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

We are going to have a refresh of finding percentages of amounts.

Remember all you need to know is how to find 10% (divide by 10) and 1% (divide by 100).

 

e.g. 10% of 50 = 50 ÷ 10 = 5

        1% of 50 = 50 ÷ 100 = 0.5

 

Once you know 10% you can find 5% (half of 10%), 20% (double 10%), 60% (6 lots of 10%) etc.

 

Have a go at the following questions:

 

10% of 120

20% of 340

35% of 860

51% of 1800

7% of 90

 

Main Task –

Complete the arithmetic paper attached below.

Guided Reading:

Today I would like you to go back to the part of the chapter where Lucy first enters the wardrobe. Write a short passage on Lucy's experience of what she finds when she enters the wardrobe.

I want you to use descriptive, figurative and emotive language, as well as show don’t tell devices. Think about your openers too, can you use fronted adverbials or 'ED-ING-LY' words. 

 

Chapter One: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiaqqr8gqvw

English:

 

Today you are going to complete your Reading Comprehension task. I would like you to read the text below. It is a diary of an evacuee during World War 2. Just like the children in 'The lion, the witch and the wardrobe', Eliza has been sent away from London because of the air-raids to keep her safe.

 

Make sure to read the text carefully and use it while answering the questions. Read the questions carefully too and look for key words which tell you how to answer the question. Make sure to reread your answers and check you have actually answered the question that has been asked. Also think about the techniques the teacher used in yesterday’s videos too.

 

Once you have completed it I would like you to mark it. If you have made any mistakes please go back to the text and find where the evidence to the answer was in the text to help you understand how it should have been answered.

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we will be doing PE and ICT.

 

For PE today I would like you to give this yoga routine a go, see if you can work your way through this routine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Td6zFtZPkJ4

This would be a great time to do some mindfulness too, at the end of the routine take a few minutes to think about all the great things and achievements you have done this week!

 

For ICT click the link: https://coding.discoveryeducation.co.uk/block/learn?locale=en-gb#refresher-level-15-5e5d0d09570d8d36569de096

Password: abc123

 

We are going to be looking at coding over the next couple of weeks. We have not looked at this since Year 5 and so today I would like you to refresh what we looked at last year by clicking on the Level 5 refresher activities. Make sure to watch the videos first and then have a go at building your own code.

 

Friday afternoons in school would mean it is Golden Time, it is important that you make some time to reward yourself for  all the hard work you have put in this week. However, I would like you to try and do this without the use of ‘screen time’, think about activities you could do such as colouring, reading, board games or getting creative! Let me know what you decide to do and if you have any ideas you could share with the rest of us.

 

Thursday 7th January 2021

 

Good morning Year 6, well done on another great day of home learning yesterday, it was great to see so many of you on our Google Classroom Meet, don't forget we will be having one every morning at 9am to kick start our day. I would like you to make sure you have something to write with for our future Meets as like yesterday as I go through the work I may ask you to help me do some of the working out or give examples. If you are unable to join or have any issues getting on please let me know via Purple Mash.

 

Please remember that today is Thursday and you need to find a few minutes to do your spelling test today. Please find your group on the document below, it is Week 7. Your new spellings will go up on SpellingShed tomorrow. 

 

Please see below for today's tasks and I will see you all at 9am,

Miss Wilding

 

Today’s task -

 

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task –

Today we are going to move on to looking at working out the mean (average).

 

Remember when working out the mean, you need to add up all the values you have and then divide by the total number of values.

 

 For example:

Over the holidays Sally read 12 pages on Monday, 8 pages on Tuesday, 16 pages on Thursday and 24 pages on Saturday.

What was the mean number of pages she read each day?  

 

I would add up the total number of pages:

12 + 8 + 16 + 24 = 60

 

Then I divide by the total number of days (4)

60 ÷ 4 = 15

 

The mean number of pages read each day was 15.

 

Have a go at the questions below.

Guided Reading:

Today you will be answering questions based on Chapter One. Remember to read through the text as you do this and use evidence from the text to support your answers.

 

Chapter One: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiaqqr8gqvw .

English:

 

Today you are going to use the links of the two videos below and work through them and the activities within them. These videos will help to give you a better understanding of the period in time when ‘The lion, the witch and the wardrobe’ was set and what was happening in London, which led to the children in the story being evacuated. I also want you to think carefully about the techniques the teacher is using in the second video when thinking about how to answer the reading comprehension questions. This will help you out with your task for tomorrow.

 

Video One: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-activate-prior-knowledge-and-consider-the-historical-context-6cw38c?activity=video&step=1

 

Video Two: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-read-a-recount-and-answer-retrieval-and-inference-based-questions-6rvpct?activity=video&step=1

 

I will be really interested to hear what you think about this and what new information you may have found out about today!

Afternoon:

 

This afternoon we are going to do French and RE.

 

French

You are going to be looking at parts of the body today and using the correct gender 'le' or 'la'.

Please watch the video on the following link to help you out and then have a go at completing the work sheet attached below (if you can not print off the sheet, you can draw your own person out and label that instead): https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/french-ks2-masculine-and-feminine-body-parts/zn84d6f

 

RE

Our RE focus question this term is -What matters most to Christians and Humanists?

Today we are going to compare the outcomes of good and bad choices.

 

I want you to think of three different situations where you could make a good choice or a bad choice.

For example going to bed on time or not – what would the outcomes be of the two different choices? The good and bad of going to bed on time and the good and bad of not going to bed on time? 

 

We have different rules and laws around us to help us and influence us to make the right choices.

I want you to create a ‘Code for Living’ rules that you would come up with to help people make good choices, to lead to good outcomes and that you think people should follow to create a happy world.

 

Wednesday 6th January 2021

 

Good morning Year 6, well done to all of you for yesterday. I know it must have been very strange finding out so late that you would not be returning to school, but once again, I just wanted to say how proud I am of you for all getting on with your learning at home so well. Thank you to those of you who sent me over some of your work, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your time over the holidays and what you got up to.

 

We will be starting our live lessons today. Currently, we will only be having one live meeting via Google Classroom starting at 9am until 9:30am, as before please make sure you are ready and online a few minutes early so we can begin straight away at 9 o'clock. As I will still be going in to school at this moment in time, I will be unable to do another live meeting in the afternoon, I will however be on Purple Mash if you have any questions or queries and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I have attached a reminder document below with the steps to take to access Google Classroom, including if you are using a tablet. Mrs Devney also message you all via Purple Mash yesterday with your usernames and passwords for this. I have also added below a suggested daily timetable below too, to help you structure your time while home learning! 

 

I hope to see you all at 9am this morning and please see below for today's tasks! 

 

Have a great day, 

Miss Wilding laugh

Maths:

Starter

To start with today, I would like you to spend 10/15 minutes on TimeTableRockStars. I will be checking to see who has been online.

 

Main Task

Today you are going to continue looking at BIDMAS questions. Remember BIDMAS stands for: Brackets, Indices, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction

 

When you have a question with more than one operation in it, you will need to remember to use BIDMAS and think about which order to tackle each part of your questions.

 

The I in BIDMAS stands for Indices, this is just another way of talking about squared or cubed numbers.

 

Example -

32 x (9 – 7) =

 

Let’s look at this question. I can see I have more than one operation so I need to recall my knowledge of BIDMAS.

Start with the B (brackets) do I have any? Yes, so we do that bit first.

 

32 x (2) =

 

Next is I (indices) do I have any? Yes, so we do that next? <
