Hello Year 6,
Well done to all those children who submitted their fantastic learning on Purple Mash last week - we are very proud of all the hard work that you are doing! It was a glorious week of sunshine, wasn't it? I hope that you managed to get outside in the fresh air to enjoy it!
Here is your home learning for Week 14 - can you believe it's been that many weeks?!
For maths this week, we would like you to continue with your work on probability. You've done a great job with the probability tasks over the last couple of weeks so hopefully you will enjoy these too! If you need a reminder, have a look at this BBC Bitesize website:
I've also put up an activity on Roman Numerals. A lot of you won't have done this topic since Year 5, so refresh your memory with this video:
English - Reading and Writing
We hope that you are enjoying Nightfall on the Somme. This week, we'd like you to read chapter 5 and then answer the comprehension questions. There is also a character profile for you to complete about Neville. You could then turn your ideas into PEE (point / evidence / explanation) paragraphs about Neville!
English - Spelling and Grammar
There are three spelling quizzes for you to do this week along with a grammar activity for which you need to find alternatives for the word 'said'. Use a thesaurus or the internet to help you. There will be a Purple Mash reward for the person who finds the most!
I know that you loved studying Space when you were in Year 5, so I have set two actvities on this science topic. Use the internet to help you answer the quiz questions and write a fact file about a planet. These BBC Bitesize videos and articles are a good place to start:
There is a coding activity for you to complete this week as well as some typing practice: See how quickly you can type out the paragraph! I bet a lot of you have become a lot faster at typing during lockdown!
We hope that you have a great week and enjoy the learning! Don't forget to comment on this blog post or email us to let us know how you're doing and what you've been up to - you can send us your work too! firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
We are really looking forward to seeing some of you return to school next week!! :)
