Home Learning Summer Term Wk1 27.4.2020

Good day Year 6. The Year 6 team hope that you are all well and keeping yourself safe. Please do remember that if you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us through the email. In addition to that, we would also love to find out how all of you are doing and what you are getting up to. Please send any photographs or work that you would like to share. Below, you will find some various tasks set for the week. If you could record the work in the exercise books that were provided, then that would be great. If you have run out of pages, please contact the school and they will provide another one. Keep safe, keep smiling. The Year 6 Team 🙂

Maths

For this week, Maths will be based on the area of statistics (data handling). As keen Mathematicians, we would like to introduce you to the topic of line graphs. Read through the information and answer the questions (you can view this as a PowerPoint or pdf) in your book. You will find the answers at the end of the slides/pages.

English

For English this week, we would like you to recap on Newspaper Reports. Familiarise yourself with the genre. Can you remember the features of a newspaper report? What makes a headline effective? What is the difference between direct and reported speech? You will also be planning on writing a newspaper article on a rather peculiar event in which a car finds an unusual parking space in a bedroom wall! (Some of you will already have seen this clip). Work through the slides (also available as a pdf) and record your answers and notes in your book. Answers are also provided for the relevant questions.

Reading

It’s great to see that a number of you are logging onto the Fiction Express website and reading a variety of the books available/on offer. Please continue to do so and if possible, do a book review and email it to us. If you have misplaced or forgotten your passwords, then contact us and we shall provide them to you. Below, you will find a range of different (very short) text and their content domain. Read the text and answer the questions. The answers are also provided.

Creative Curriculum

The topic for the summer term is called Rule Britannia. In this topic we will be looking at why and how the Vikings settled in the United Kingdom, where they came from and their contribution to the British way of life. To start of the topic, we would like you to create a title page with the heading Rule Britannia – make it as colourful as possible. Then we would like you to do some research on the Vikings and you can present this information in any form: a video, Power Point, iMovie, poster, etc. Be as CREATIVE as possible. If possible, send these in as we would love to see them 🙂
