Year 6

Friday 24th April – Day 15

READING

Task 1: Look back at yesterday’s learning and reflect on how you did using the mark scheme that has been uploaded to showbie. If you got an answer wrong, can you reflect on why this might have happened?

Task 2: You have been assigned an information text, ‘Endangered’. Some of you will be familiar to this text. Please answer questions 1 to 14 on the PDF. Remember to think back to your reading strategies for unknown words and looking for answers in the text.

Here are some helpful strategies:

  • Reading around the word,
  • Replacing the word with another word,
  • Looking for context clues such as helpingwords or examples given,
  • Thinking about your own experience.

MATHS

Task 1: Look back at yesterday’s learning on problem solving and reflect on how you did, using the mark scheme that has been uploaded to showbie. If you made any mistakes, can you work out where your error might have been?

Task 2: You have been assigned an investigation. Using the digits provided and all 4 operations, you need to make 100! What problem solving strategy will you use? Will trial and improvement help or will you work systematically? You should use BODMAS to remember the order of operations and you should use the maths worksheet to help you. It gives you an example of using trial and improvement start off. Use paper to make as many jottings as you would like, but please record your answers directly onto the maths worksheet on showbie.

Further examples of problem solving strategies:

  • Make an organised table
  • Look for a pattern
  • Draw a picture or diagram
  • Reason logically Aim: To use problem solving strategies to solve an investigation.

ART

Following on from our learning of gothic architecture, you have been asked to sketch a building that interests you.

This building could be in this country (e.g. The Shard) or another country (e.g. The Eiffel Tower). You may want to google different pictures of the building so you can see what it looks like from every angle.

Think about the scale you use, and the different shading techniques you can use. Leave a comment in showbie describing what your creation looks like or if you’re able to, please upload a picture of it!

Thursday 23rd April – Day 14

GPS

Task 1: Look back at yesterday’s learning and reflect on how you did using the mark scheme that has been uploaded to Showbie. If you got an answer wrong, can you reflect on why this might have happened? For example, could you have used a different reading strategy? Was there a clue in the text you might have missed?

Task 2: You have 6 short Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling tasks to complete. Use the annotating tools on showbie to answer directly on the sheet.

MATHS

Task 1: Look back at yesterday’s learning on addition and reflect on how you did, using the mark scheme that has been uploaded to Showbie. If you made any mistakes, can you work out where your error might have been? Did you use the advice given yesterday?

Task 2: You have been assigned some problems that focus on place value, fractions and percentages. Make sure you read the questions carefully. As always, you can use paper for any working out or jottings before using the annotating tools on showbie to complete your learning.

Here are some examples of problem solving strategies:

  • Make an organised table
  • Look for a pattern
  • Draw a picture or diagram
  • Reason logically
  • Trial and improvement (make a guess and test it with examples).

First read each problem and ask yourself the following:

  • What do I think? What do I need to find out?
  • What do I know? What do I notice?
  • What maths have I got to help me (in my toolkit)?

FRENCH

Can you match the correct french word to the animal? Use the annotating tools on showbie to answer directly on the sheet. This should be words you have learnt already, however if you are finding it difficult, then perhaps use google translate to help! Once you have finished, practice saying each word in French. Maybe you could even get a member of your family to test you on them?

Wednesday 22nd April – Day 13

READING

You have been assigned two extracts from the novel ‘Moonfleet’. Please answer questions 24 to 35 on the PDF. Remember to think back to your reading strategies for unknown words and looking for answers in the text.

  • Here are some helpful strategies:
  • Reading around the word,
  • Replacing the word with another word,
  • Looking for context clues such as helping words or examples given,
  • Thinking about your own experience.

MATHS

Task 1: Look back at yesterday’s learning and reflect on how you did, using the mark scheme that has been uploaded to showbie. If you made any mistakes, can you work out where your error might have been?

Task 2: You have been assigned some problems that focus on addition. Please be mindful of your place value and do not forget to regroup! You might want to use the inverse (subtraction) to check your answers are correct. Also, there are some word problems. Remember to consider what the question is asking you to find out and what you already know. It may be useful to use a bar model here.

Aim: To use a written method to solve addition calculations and problems.

PE

We have sent you a link for a PE exercise that we think you will find fun! Watch the following video by the PE Shed on Youtube.

The activity is called ‘The Sweatbox’. It can be done indoors or outdoors. Only go as far as you can and record your own personal level.

Tuesday 21st April – Day 12

ENGLISH

Task 1: Look back at yesterday’s learning and reflect on how you did using the mark scheme that has been uploaded to showbie. If you got an answer wrong, can you reflect on why this might have happened? For example, could you have used a different reading strategy? Was there a clue in the text you might have missed?

Task 2: Read the story starter and then continue writing the story. Alternatively, you might want to write a persuasive poster or letter to try and persuade the humans to leave the animals alone. The questions on pobble are there to help you plan and write your chosen text – you do not have to answer them. Please record your writing – whether that be a story, persuasive poster or letter on showbie, in the comment box. You could write it paper if you wish- please post a picture to showbie if you can.

Success Criteria:

  1. A range of sentence structures – embedded clauses, fronted adverbials and subordinate clauses.
  2. Descriptive language e.g. expanded noun phrases, similes, personification.
  3. Use devices to show cohesion in and across your paragraphs e.g. reference/word chains, adverbials of time, conjunctions.

MATHS

Task 1: Look back at yesterday’s learning on rounding and reflect on how you did, using the mark scheme that has been uploaded to showbie. If you made any mistakes, can you work out where your error might have been? Did you use the advice given yesterday?

Task 2: You have been assigned some problems that involve missing numbers and require knowledge of the four operations. You can use paper for any working out or jottings before using the annotating tools on showbie to complete your learning.

Here are some examples of problem solving strategies:

  • Make an organised table
  • Look for a pattern
  • Draw a picture or diagram
  • Reason logically
  • Trial and improvement (make a guess and test it with examples).

First read each problem and ask yourself the following:

  • What do I think?
  • What do I need to find out?
  • What do I know? * What do I notice?
  • What maths have I got to help me (in my toolkit)?

Aim: To use problem solving strategies to solve mathematical problems.

CREATIVE CURRICULUM

Science focus: Using the information given, create a timeline of Light – an example is provided on the PDF below. You can choose how you would like to do this – you might want to be creative and record in your book or you might have an app/website that you would like to use.

Please be sure that you save a picture or a screenshot of it and upload it to Showbie – I would love to see them! If not, record a voice note or write a sentence about what you did.

Monday 20th April – Day 11

ENGLISH

Task 1: Look back at the learning from before the holidays and reflect on how you did using the mark scheme that has been uploaded to Showbie. If you got an answer wrong, can you reflect on why this might have happened? For example, could you have used a different reading strategy? Was there a clue in the text you might have missed?

Task 2: You have been assigned a poem called The Charge of the Light Brigade. Please answer questions 15 to 23 on the PDF. Remember to think back to your reading strategies for unknown words and looking for answers in the text.

Here are some helpful strategies:

  • Reading around the word,
  • Replacing the word with another word,
  • Looking for context clues such as helping words or examples given,
  • Thinking about your own experience.

MATHS

Task 1: Look back at the learning from before the holidays and reflect on how you did using the mark scheme that has been uploaded to showbie. If you made any mistakes, can you work out where your error might have been?

Task 2: You have been assigned work on rounding. You will need to use the rule – 5 or more, let it soar; 4 or less, let it rest. Therefore, if you were asked to round 456 to the nearest 10, your answer would be 460, because the 6 ones tells me 456 is closer to 460, than it is to 450.

Top Tip: Use a number line to support you with your learning and identify the previous multiple (450) and the next multiple (460). You will then be asked to round to get an estimated/approximate answer. E.g. 29 x 11 could be estimated as 30 x 10 = 300. Use the annotating tools in Showbie to complete the learning directly on the sheet.

CREATIVE CURRICULUM

History focus: Imagine you are one of the first settlers on a new planet. Write a list of laws you think would help new people live together. You can use some of the laws that we use today to help you generate some ideas and you will then need to think of punishments that you believe to be suitable (e.g. it is against the law to drive whilst intoxicated and you could face up to 6 months imprisonment, an unlimited fine and a driving ban for at least a year).

Think about:

  • Education
  • Marriages
  • Employments
  • Homes
  • Families
  • Health

Please add the laws and their punishments to the table below.
