Term 6 Week 6 6th July 2020
I have set some tasks on Mathletics on angles to coincide with the White Rose Maths lessons this week.
I have created a Mathletics Blog to celebrate the whole school's successes on Mathletics. I will announce the top 10 participators in the whole school and the child, who has achieved the most points, in each year group. Well done to the Year 6s who have made it into the top 10!
We have 4 White Rose lessons this week. A Friday Family Challenge will be uploaded on Friday. The challenge gets increasingly difficult, all the way up to KS3 and 4 maths. Below is the link to the lessons and teaching slides:
I have attached the worksheets for these lessons at the bottom of this post.
We are working our way through the Talk4Writing booklet entitled Monsters:
In school we will be aiming to complete one activity from it per day. Some activities will take longer than others (check out the Year 6 Blog to see how much we managed to complete at school last week).
I have uploaded the final two chapters of Goodnight Mister Tom. I have really enjoyed reading this book and I hope you have too.
You will see the challenge activities for chapter 23 sections C and D are your personal responses to the book.
I would like you to either fill those sections and return them to Miss Rice via email, email@example.com, or create your own, this is so that I can create a display of your work that children will be able to see when they return to school in the Autumn. You can be as creative as you like, you could even think of your own activities to be put on display. These can be done over the next couple fo weeks, no rush.
Spellings this week are adjectives ending in -ent into nouns ending in -ence/-ency.
Science - Inheritance and Evolution
I will update the Science activities once I have taught them at school and know how much we have got through.
Lesson 5 - Human Evolution. I have attached the power point and worksheets that we worked through, we focused on using scientific vocabulary when describing differences and similarities.
Lesson 6 - Adaption, Evolution and Human Intervention. The Power Point is attached below. We completed the 'Advantages and Disadvantages of Adaptation' worksheets individually but worked together to sort the living things into the categories of cross-breeding, selective breeding, parent(s) or offspring.
Our Virtual Sports Day
Check out our Home Learning --> Overview --> Virtual Sports Day to find out how to take part at home in our Virtual Sports Day.
For those of you who are done we are going to do something different for the last few weeks of school. Children’s Art Week will be running for 3 weeks and we would like you to take part. Each week there will be a different theme for you to think about. This week’s theme is Connecting Across Generations. You could have a look at the website and some suggested activities but we know how creative you are and that you can think up your own ideas! We will be awarding house points for every child who takes part and the bigger the effort the bigger the reward! It would be great if you could explain a bit about what you have created so we understand where you got your inspiration from.
Remember that I would love to see your work, send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
