Week beginning Monday 18th May
For all of the work below you do not need to print out any of the worksheets, thank you Year 6.
This week your work is based on time and then perimeter. We would like you to spend no more than 30 minutes on each activity. Please work in the book provided by school. There is a worksheet for each day attached underneath the Maths worksheets heading. To support your maths, we have also attached ongoing activities that you can use as and when you see fit.
Day 1- Converting units of time
Day 2- Converting units of time
Day 3- Using time tables
Day 5 - Perimeter problems
Times Tables Rock Stars - BATTLE OF THE BANDS!
This week it’s battle of the bands!! Each band (class) in each year group will be battling against each other. You can play in any game type in any area of the site. The band in each year group with the most correct answers will be the winners...will it be 6A or 6C?!
The battles will start at 3:30pm on Friday 15th May and finish at 3:30pm Friday 22nd May.
So play as much as you can over the next week to help your band be Top of the Pops!
We would like you to read 5 times a week for at least ten minutes each time that you read. Don't forget you can still take part in the reading challenges throughout the week- remember to let us know how you are getting on via the year group email.
We would also like you to complete the following activities:
Day 1: This week we are launching our new topic: Crime and Punishment. To begin this we would like you to read the information text to get an overview of things that have happened throughout history. Then answer the questions which follow.
Challenge: Do you have any questions you could write based on the text? If so write them down and see if you can find the answer elsewhere.
Day 2: Create an emotions graph for a character in a book you are reading or you have read recently. Use the same format you would use if you were planning a story in school, using positives and negatives. Plot the story on a graph and label to show what the different plot points are for the different emotions.
Day 3: Our new topic will contain some language that you may not have come across before. Your task today is to look up the meaning of the vocabulary listed on the sheet and write your own definition for each word. Make sure you understand what each word means- you could write it in a sentence to check it makes sense.
Day 4- For today’s reading task we would like you to complete some questions looking at cause and effect and vocabulary use.
Day 5- Can you complete the book challenge? You can either list books you’ve read, books you have on your bookshelf or you could search online for books that fit each category.
Day 1- Spelling
This week we would like you to challenge yourselves to make dictionary entries for your spelling words. Can you write the word, a definition and it’s word class- eg whether it is a verb, noun etc.
Challenge- can you think of words derived from the word, eg change the adjective to an adverb or the find the past tense version of a verb and spell it correctly?
Day 2- Grammar Test. As it would have been SATS week last week, we thought you could have a go at a grammar test this week.
Day 3- Today we would like you to watch this video clip from YouTube which documents the finding of the world’s oldest message in a bottle written by a captain of a German sailing ship, which was thrown from the vessel whilst on a voyage from Cardiff to Indonesia.
After you have watched the clip we would like you to think about what might have happened to the captain and his crew. We would like you to think of a writing style to use that could explore what might have happened, for example: a diary entry that explains what was happening on board the ship when the bottle was thrown over board; a prediction of what you think happened to the captain and his crew ; or a news report that could have been written if the captain had made it to Indonesia safely. Be as creative and imaginative as possible!
Day 4- Each year there are lists published which suggest activities to do before you are a certain age. E.G. 50 things to do before you are 11. This week we would like you to create your own list of “20 things to do during lockdown.” What activities have you been doing to keep busy that you could recommend to others? Are there activities you haven’t done but you think would be fun for others to try? These can be included on your list too.
Day 5- Today we would like you to use your grammar knowledge to create your own quiz for another member of Year 6. Include a mixture of questions about different topics (e.g. spelling, punctuation, grammar terms). It can be presented however you want, but if you send it to us by email we may be able to upload some to the website next week for other people to try!
Topic- Our new topic is CRIME AND PUNISHMENT. For your first task we would like you to think about what you already know about ideas linked to this topic. We would like you to make a list of crimes you know, crime prevention methods you know (e.g. locking doors, passwords….) and punishments. Think about the modern day but also crimes throughout history. Create a list for each or present it in your own way (e.g. a popplet or a Powerpoint)
PSHE- This week, to follow on from last week’s VE day celebrations, we are celebrating ‘British Values’. Had we have been at school, we would have been taking part in a range of activities discussing; similarities and differences, respect and tolerance, individual liberty and the law. We would like you to have a look at the list of activities below and choose at least one to do this week as part of your home learning. Miss Hewitt would love to see some of the work you have been doing, if you would like to send it via email to your teachers, we will pass it on to her.
P.E- This week we would like you to have a go at one of the ‘WOW’ walk to school challenges. This week, they want you to use your imagination while out doing your daily exercise. Have a go at one of the age 7-11 activities attached below. If you can’t get out for exercise, there is an indoor challenge too.
Science- This week we are going to start your new Science topic on Light. To remind yourself of what you have already learned about light, we would like you to demonstrate different light sources and indicate whether they are natural or man made. You should be able to remember these well from your previous learning, so to challenge yourself can you think of an interesting way to present this information- perhaps through a photograph slide show on PowerPoint, a video of you identifying sources around your house or an artistic and creative way of your choice. We would love to see how creative you can be.
Topic – Look at crime and punishment through the ages. This will give us a good starting point for how things have changed or stayed the same throughout history. Have a look at the sheet with three different examples on, then use the key facts to give your own opinion.
We would like to set you a challenge. Each year we rely upon our Year 6 experts to help us prepare the Year 2 children who are moving to Eastern Green Junior School in September. With things being very different this year, we need your help in a different way. We would like you to create a short video for Year 2 to tell them all about things you have enjoyed throughout your time at Eastern Green and important things they should know (usually some of these ideas are shared at the new parents meeting). Think about what your favourite memories have been and what you think they need to know to help them become excited about moving to our school. Please send your videos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Mrs Aston may use some of your ideas on our website for the new pupils to look at. Good luck and have fun! Thankyou to those of you who have already sent your videos to us!
