In your Learning Logs this week, please can you show me what you know about the following objectives.
English. Writing action narratives that makes your reader’s heart thump. You could write another WW1 narrative, or a narrative set somewhere else that makes me feel nervous. You could write a different piece of writing inspired by the trenches of WW1. For Grammar, we have been focusing on tenses, word classes and sentence structures, so you could also show me what you know about these terms: particularly – can you think of a way to help the whole class remember the perfect tense and the progressive tense?
Maths (Mrs McCarthy-Stott’s group). Algebra. Can you create something that will help someone else learn how to use letters to represent numbers?
Maths (Miss Mottram’s group) .Fractions, decimals and percentages. Can you create something for our classroom that shows what you know?
Topic. The Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the throne. As you have just started this topic, you might want to do some initial research into anything you are personally interested in. What can you find out?
Don’t forget reading, times tables and keep going over those spellings. Also, use those revision books to fill in any gaps that you discovered over the holidays!
Please can Learning Logs be returned on Friday 27th April.
You will all go home today with a booklet of activities in Arithmetic, Reasoning and Grammar to complete over the Easter holidays. There are enough for 10 days and should take you about 10 minutes a day.
I’ve also sent home the answers so you can mark them with an adult in your house.
If there is anything you are not sure of, make a note and I will try my best to ensure we go over it. Don’t forget you also have your revision guides if there is anything you are unsure of.
There are no reading activities, but the best way to prepare for the Reading Test is to read as much as possible and talk about what you are reading with somebody.
In your Learning Logs for Tuesday 13th March, please show me what you know about the following objectives:
English. Integrating dialogue. You could create something to help Year 6 remember the rules of writing using dialogue. You could turn a comic strip or a text conversation into a piece of dialogue. You could create a piece of writing that encompasses dialogue. Remember to vary your use!
Maths. Angle facts. You could create a poster we could keep in the classroom advertising the facts Year 6 need to know. You could create a lift the flap guess the angle game. You could create a piece of angle inspired art (but make sure you can find the missing angles too!)
Geography. The eight points of the compass. Could you create a compass? Could you describe where places are in relation to somewhere else using the vocabulary of the eight points of a compass? It could be somewhere small (such as things around your bedroom) or large (such as the world map!).
Remember these are just ideas!
Don’t forget Times Tables Rockstars, spellings and to read, read read!
For next week, Tuesday 6th March, in your Learning Logs, can you show me what you know about the following objectives:
English. Newspaper writing / bias. Can you find a real life example of bias in the news? Sports news might be a place to look! How can you tell the writer is biased? Is it obvious or hidden?
Maths. 2D shape vocabulary. Could you create a game that tests another pupil’s vocabulary knowledge? Could you present different shapes in a sorting diagram?
Geography. The map of Europe. Could you plot where you have been in Europe on a map? Could you find out more about one particular place in Europe?
History. What caused World War One? Could you present what you know in a creative way?
Remember these are just ideas!
Remember to do lots of reading. Anything you find that might be useful to your own writing, remember to note down so you can use it. Please ask an adult to comment on your reading in your Reading Record.
As part of our Geography this half term the children have been learning about continents and oceans. For their homework, I asked them to find out about a destination they have visited. Here are just some of the fabulous pieces of homework I have received.
In your Learning Logs this week, for Tuesday 30th January, please can you show me what you know about the following objectives:
English / Topic. How do you represent a disaster? In English and in Art, we have been looking at how to respond to the Titanic tragedy. You could continue our work in poetry or art to show emotions by creating your own poem, or artwork, inspired by an emotion or event of your choice. Or, you could think of your own way to represent the Titanic disaster.
Maths. / Topic In Maths we have continued to explore area and perimeter, particularly looking at how to find the area of triangles and parallelograms. We have also started to apply our understanding of area and perimeter to ship design. You could explore the real life application of area in design: perhaps to your own ship design or another design of your choice. Can you show you know how to use the formulae for area of rectangles, triangles and parallelograms?
