Hi Year 6!
I hope you are all well and ready to get on with some more of your home learning J
First of all, I’ve set you some Kahoots which you can play at home by entering the game pin. I’ll be able to see your scores and I can let you know how you do on the leader board.
For those of you that have logged on to PurpleMash, you’ll see I’ve set some new 2dos. If you prefer to do them on paper that’s fine; you can always email a picture of your work or post on Facebook to show me if you like!
Online videos etc:
We watched a production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth earlier this year and you can find a short animated version here. Use it to write your own play script or story of Macbeth.
You could also have a go at writing your own poem based on the witches’ famous spell which I have attached for you.
You can hear the rest of The Graveyard Book read by the author Neil Gaiman. He reads a chapter at a time which you can find on YouTube, the first chapter is here:
A Monster Calls is another award winning book which I wanted to share with you. BBC iPlayer has the movie online at the moment which is meant to be really good.IT’s free but only there for 2 weeks!
Missing you all,
There are lots of horrible histories episodes on BBC iPlayer (and also Netflix) if you want something different to watch.
Numbers countdown game that we’ve played in class
I’ve attached a document explaining how to find different sorts of averages (mean, mode, median and range) with a couple of activities for you to try.
I’ve also attached a measurement problem booklet (ignore that it says SATS). Most of the work we have covered anyway but for the new parts there are explanations at the start.
I’ve added some sheets for you to have a look at.
In algebra, if it says 2T, this just means 2 times T or 2 lots of T. So if T = 5 then 2T = 10.
You can choose your own numbers to put in the middle of the % web. Use a calculator to check.
E.g. 65% of 300 = 0.65 x 300 73% of 2987 = 0.73 x 2987
Can you write your zoo debate? Try to write three paragraphs about why zoos are good (educating people, breeding endangered animals, keeping animals safe) and three about why they are bad (not good enough standards of care, taking their freedom/rights away and keeping them out of the wild, possible dangers etc.) Have a final conclusion paragraph to tell me your own opinion. You could type this on purple mash so I can see it, or send me an email of your work typed/a photo of it written in your green book.
I’ve attached Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes which are funny poems. Could you try to learn one with actions and perform it for your family or with a sibling? Could you choose a story and write your own version?
I’ve also attached a pdf of Wonder which is a really good book. It’s too long to print but if you fancy something different to read you can read it online.
We were going to look at work by the artist LS Lowry who was from Manchester.
I’ve attached a PowerPoint that has some examples of his most famous work which you could have a go at copying. It also has some photos of other outdoor buildings/landscapes which you could try to do in his style. He uses a lot of outdoors from the Manchester area so you could always just try and draw whatever you can see from your window!
Also, this playlist on YouTube has different book illustrators showing you how to draw their characters.
