Hello Year 6!

 

We're entering another week of home learning and it has been great seeing all the work you have been doing so far. Keep the emails and the Facebook posts coming!

 

On Friday 8th May, it is the 75th anniversary of VE Day (Victory in Europe Day) and this links very nicely to our previous journey into battle, so your writing challenge this week is linked to this. This will enable you to use some of the things you learned about WW2 in addition to some extra research.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-ks2-ve-day/z7xtmfr

Watch the videos and read the fact files to learn all about VE day and the events leading up to and beyond it. Most of the events you will know a lot about but they will give you a quick re-cap.

 

Your writing challenge:

 

The King’s Speech

Listen to the speech of George VI, during which, he tells the nation that the war is over. (https://www.bbc.com/historyofthebbc/anniversaries/may/ve-day-broadcasts). How do you think this will compare to our Queen’s speech this Friday? Imagine that YOU are the monarch, supporting your countrymen and women right now or announcing the end of lockdown.  What would YOU say? Can you write or video your own speech to the nation?

 

For your maths challenge:

 

Please log onto https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom 

Under the heading of year 6, please complete 'find unknown angles in triangles'.

 

These tasks are in addition to the learning log linked to our topic of Ancient Greece. 

 

Additionally, if you would like to complete some STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) challenges linked to Lego - you will find a number of different challenges attached below that you can complete in your own time. When you complete one, could you write some instructions on how you built it? Don't forget your imperative verbs (bossy verbs) and remember to give detailed instructions. Imagine an alien were to read them to build the same structure - what would they need to know?

 

Have a good week and hopefully we will see you all again very soon!

 

Miss Barrott & Mrs Christopher.

Hi everyone,

We hope you have enjoyed the lovely weather this week. It was so lovely to hear from so many of you, and it is great to see the work you are both emailing and posting on Facebook. Please keep sending us pictures and clips of your fantastic activities. It cheers us up to see you all having so much fun.

 

This week your writing challenge is to write the ending of the Nowhere Emporium. We have been so tempted to read the end without you, but we won’t as long as you send in your creations. It will be great to compare them with the written ending of the story when we get back to school.

 

If you can access the internet, please log onto https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom

There you can complete the following tasks, under the heading of Year 6:

Maths

Fractions problem solving

Foundation subjects

Was the treaty of Versailles fair?

Spanish

Learning Log Homework

Summer Term

We are going on a journey to ANCIENT GREECE

As we aren’t currently in school, we would like you to start our very exciting journey at home with your families, so you can then share this with us in school when we are back.

In order to research, you may want to ask your family members questions (remember you can do this virtually too). You may want to research on the internet, look at photographs, read books or do a bit of everything. Once you have gathered your research, you can then choose to present this however you like:

DESIGN AND MAKE

Design a shield that could have been used by a Spartan.

Create a replica of the Parthenon in Athens.

See below a template of a traditional Greek pot. Decorate it, keeping in mind the style at the time. (They would often decorate these in images of soldiers, gods or daily life.)

RESEARCH

Use whatever sources you have available to research a famous Greek God. Create an information leaflet/poster to share your findings with the class.

Create your own Greek God. What makes them unique and special?

 

Bake

Although the Ancient Greeks probably wouldn’t have eaten these, try making some traditional Greek dishes such as moussaka, souvlaki, baklava, tzatziki or pita bread.

GEOGRAPHY

Create a PowerPoint all about the geography of Ancient Greece.

This website may help you gather facts: https://www.historyforkids.net/geography-of-ancient-greece.html

Think about where it is in the world. Can you locate it on a map? On a globe?

Tell us about the regions, how they spoke, the people living there etc.

SCIENCE

In ancient Greece, boys did athletic activities like running, wrestling and throwing spears to keep fit, enter athletic competitions and prepare for life as a soldier. Why do you think it was important for boys to be fit and healthy? How have you been keeping fit and healthy at home? Can you create a survey that would help us find out what type of exercise is most common amongst your friends and family?

OUTDOORS

The ancient Olympic Games included running, long jump, shot put, javelin and boxing.

Choose a sport (of your choice) to try and see if you can improve yourself whilst we continue to be at home. Keep a log of how you do and how much you have improved. Taking photos or videos is a great way to watch your performance, evaluate it and then improve.

CREATIVE WRITING

 

Watch this video: https://vimeo.com/70975460

Describe the backstory for the running character (called Olympia). Where does she come from? How did she come to be involved in the events in the animation?

Create your own Greek God and describe them, using a thesaurus to improve your words choices. You may wish to extend your description into a full story.

Computing

Use Minecraft to build a model of the Trojan horse or a temple like the Parthenon, or use whatever material you like such as lego, junk modelling, papier-maché to make a Spartan shield or helmet; a statue of a god or mythical creature; a temple; Jason’s ship the Argo.

MUSIC AND PERFORMANCE ARTS

Greeks are known to be the inventors of drama. ‘Drama’ the word means ‘to do’ or ‘to act’ in the Greek language. Therefore, have a go at creating your own script inclusive of stage and scene directions and dialogue. Try to record this if you can.

 

 

 

It would be GOOD if you could complete 2 out of the 9 activities.

It would be GREAT if you could use ICT in your work.

It would be AMAZING if you could complete a range of activities (research, build, draw, design, write…)

These are just some ideas – we’re happy for you to think of your own activities.

We can’t wait to see the creative ways that you will show us your FANTASTIC learning!

Good luck.

 Mrs Christopher and Miss Barrott

Hello Year 6. I hope you are all well and are managing to structure your day during the lockdown. At school, we have been taking part in the live PE lessons from Joe Wicks. They have been really fun so you may want to take part in these at home. I have some additional tasks for you to complete at home this week to keep you entertained. Firstly, I have allocated you all tasks to complete on Mathletics. Please log on and complete in order to gain a certificate. In addition to this in order to continue with our English topic of persuasion, this week I would like you to write and then produce an advertisement for a robot vacuum cleaner. I have attached a  video of my robot vacuum cleaner, which many of you know is one of my favourite gadgets. Remember to name it, include the features and most importantly persuade your audience to buy it. Please post all advertisements on the school Facebook page so I can see your wonderful creations. Finally, why not join me in learning Spanish? I really enjoy using Duolingo.

 

Take care.

 

I hope to see you soon.

In English we have been planning a non-chronological report on The Blitz . In Science we have conducted an experiment to find out which material is the best insulator. And finally in P.E we have been learning all about how to play netball and hockey.
