Posted on Sunday 12 July 2020 by Miss Wilson

Happy Monday, Y6!
Here we are – the last week of your primary school life! It’s been a blast.
Living and Learning
As we come to the end of the year, it’s time to look back at the year but also ahead to September.
First, I’d like you to watch this video. (This has been rented by the school. If you’re having trouble accessing the video, send me an email and I’ll try to get it sorted if I can.)
Your task today is to complete this sheet and then take a photo of what you’ve written and send it to me in an email.
Reading – LO: Love of Reading
 
Today’s reading task involves simply reading FirstNews! It is a special edition of FirstNews based on ‘Fake News’.
Your task is to read some (or all if you wish) of the newspaper at your leisure!
Send me an email to show me one thing you’ve learnt about fake news!
Science –  LO: spectacular space
Today’s task is to read this BBC Bitesize web post and then complete activities one and two!
We would love to see your science experiments – send in an email!

Happy Friday, Y6!

Maths – LO: solving problems
 
Just like yesterday, click here to join me for today’s task.

Reading – LO: RIC or conveying character

Your task today is either a RIC from FirstNews, or you can choose to convey character from the short film ‘Catch it’ that we watched yesterday.

Click here for your RIC.

If you decide to convey character, you need to use the speech that you created for the different scenes yesterday and act them out! Feel free to change your speech slightly if you wish and remember we are conveying character – this means lots of expression in your voice, obvious body language between the characters and most of all, enjoy yourself!

You could choose members of your household to act out the scenes with you or you could do it yourself!

I’d love to see your attempts so please send them over if you get the chance.

Drama – LO: theatre genres
 
Click here to start today’s task all about different performance styles in plays.
Once you’ve read the website and watched the videos, complete the following sentence stems in your home learning book.
1. Genre means…
2. My favourite type of theatre was… because…
3. My least favourite was… because…
4. Three things I have learnt today are…
Next, complete activities one and two.
An example for activity one could be to change the genre of Little Red Riding Hood to be a comedy. Some of the lines might change in order to make the audience “howl” with laughter eg more terrible wolf puns. The costumes might change to be funnier, like a wolf with an exaggeratedly large head and bug eyes.
Have a look at the example below for activity two.
As always, email me with your efforts!

Happy Thursday, Y6!

Time is absolutely flying! It must be all this fun we’re having in school (and out!).

Maths – LO: solving problems
 
Click here to join me for today’s problems.
Remember to read the question carefully, understand what it’s actually asking you, choose the right operation to use, solve the problem step by step, and check your answer makes sense.
Challenge
Write your own versions of the problems. You could change what happens or change the numbers involved. Create your own mark scheme.

Reading – LO: creating dialogue

Your task today is to watch this video.

Once you’ve watched the video, I’d like you to click here to access the task for today.

Your job is to create some dialogue for the different scenes within the short film. You need to use your retrieval and inference skills to help you come up with some appropriate dialogue.
