YEAR 6: WEEK 1 (23rd March)

Dear Year 6,

Firstly, I hope you are staying safe and well. 

Below is a list of activities and work for you to complete at home. It might seem simpler than usual, but that way you should be able to complete it independently.

 

English:

Here is a link to the book 'Wonder'  https://www.bookscool.com/en/Wonder-650529/1

 

You could write a newspaper report where you could pretend to interview August to find out about his condition, and his life at school - which you of course have already read lots about.

 

Same format as we do in class please:

Day 1 - Plan

Day 2 - Draft

Day 3- Edit

Day 4 - Publish

 

Alternatively, if you would prefer to do something away from what we have learnt in class, then this video (https://www.literacyshed.com/onceinalifetime.html) is a great story starter!

 

In your story,  you could think about:

  • Where are the turtles taking the man?
  • How did the man get there in the first place?
  • What happens after the clip stops?
  • Where are they?
  • Why are the turtles flying?

Your story could also be illustrated (similar to the turtles we made at the start of Year 6).

Same format as above please.

 

Maths:

There are some fantastic resources available online and the following links provide video tutorials and then work for you guys to complete. You should recognize the style of worksheets as we use them in class all the time!

There are 5 different lessons which should last you for the first week of home learning.

 

In addition, if you would like to do more Maths work, then Maths Antics have some great Youtube clips (the American man we have watched in class) on most subjects in the KS2 curriculum. www.mathsaids.com also have some great worksheets to go with the videos.

 

Other learning:

 

'The Body Coach' Joe Wicks is live streaming PE lessons every morning at 9am on his youtube channel which might be fun for you to keep moving about whilst off school.

 

Most of you of course still have your SATs packs and study guides which I prepared for you before the government made the decision to cancel SATs. These resources are still very useful and provide extra work if required.

 

Again, stay safe and well, and please be good!

 

Best Wishes,

 

Miss Jeffery
