Afternoon message - Tuesday 28th April 2020
Good morning Year 6!
I hope you had a good first day back of home learning yesterday! Remember the changes that have been made to the reading activities this week! How are your persuasive letters coming along? Yesterday you should have planned them and hopefully completed some research to back up your points. Did you enjoy the message to our children video? Spot any familiar faces?
Make sure you are using all the wonderful resources available to you like Bug Club. As teachers, we are able to see who is and isn’t logging on and can give feedback to your comprehension responses.
I’ve been trying my best to get back into running, after I was nominated for the 5km challenge. After I completed it I donated £5 to the wonderful NHS. I even managed to run 10km on Wednesday!!! Watch this space I could be the new Mo Farah :)
Please remember to take a look at the curriculum pages too. I’ve uploaded some computing tasks and also some French activities.
The links are below
Have a great day everyone and I'll check in with you again at 3pm.
Read for at least 20 minutes. This could be your school reading book, a home book, Bug Club or another text you enjoy. Identify any new and unknown vocabulary and find the definitions.
Complete the daily Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) PE lesson.
Visit his YouTube channel here:
Visit the White Rose Maths website here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/
Please complete Lesson Two (Angles in Regular Polygons). You can watch the video first to help you, then complete the worksheet and mark it. If you are finding it difficult, re-watch the video or look for other online tutorials (Khan Academy and Mathantics are good places to start).
Yesterday, you should have chosen the topic for your persuasive letter, researched, generated arguments to support your topic and planned out your paragraphs. This may need a little bit of finishing off at the start of today's session.
Today, you are going to begin writing. Please have another look at the PowerPoint and checklist below, as they will remind you of everything you need to include. There are also some example texts so you can see what a good one looks like, although I'm sure you can create one which is much better! You do not have to finish the entire piece today, but try to get at least half way through.
Practise your weekly spellings. Copy them into your home learning book and write their definitions.
Complete the SPaG activity below. There is a Powerpoint which you can work through to show you how to answer the questions. You can then work on the varied fluency questions. Select either 'Developing', 'Expected' or 'Greater Depth' depending on how confident you are with the topic. You can then mark your work and move onto the application and reasoning sheet.
This week in science, you are going to begin investigating 'inheritance'. Read through the PowerPoint below. You then need to write the definitions for the vocabulary on the 'Key Vocabulary' sheet; you can use the PowerPoint to help you. Afterwards, complete the investigation where you need to compare your appearance with your parents' appearance. Try to identify what you have inherited from them. If you don't have pictures of you/your parents to use, you could just draw a picture.
