Week beginning 29th June 2020
Dear Year 6
Thank you so much pupils who managed to share their learning with us last week, it was fantastic to see what you have been up to! Remember you can email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to share your home learning with us and we can celebrate your success.
In Maths, complete Week 7 on quadrilaterals. Consider carefully how they are defined and use a mirror to help with symmetry if you get stuck! Here is a link to revision and interactive games online to support your learning about quadrilaterals: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zshb97h/revision/5
Remember to revise using Mangahigh: https://www.mangahigh.com/en-gb/. Passwords and usernames are based on your names in block capitals plus the digit 1. Children with the same names will need to add the first letter of your surname to the end of both password and username. Passwords and Logins should be able to be edited and changed once you have logged on. E.g. FRED1 FREDG1
For English, complete Week 7 Reading, Grammar, Spelling and Writing based upon an extract from ‘Monstrous devices’ by Damien Love you read last week. Included in the pack are instructions to help you. Work can be completed on paper or in an exercise book. If you fancy a challenge, why not look at this lesson and summarise a character from ‘Monstrous devices’? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zfkrn9q
Reading for pleasure should continue to happen daily and we would love to hear about the books you have read. Lots of books are free to read online: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/library-page?view=image&query=&type=book&age_group=&level=&level_select=oxford+level+20&book_type=&series=#
This week in ‘Being Human’ you are looking at different organs in your body and return to think about your inherited genes (we visited this learning before in ‘Out of Africa’). We would love to receive photos of the experiment finding your lung capacity!
We hope you managed to tune into ‘Operation Ouch’ - https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000jybp/operation-ouch-do-try-this-at-home-1-bones?xtor=CS8-1000-[Discovery_Cards]-[Multi_Site]-[SL08]-[PS_IPLAYER~N~~P_DoTryThisAtHome].
Every Friday, we want to ensure you use your afternoons to maintain a healthy lifestyle. We recommend Joe Wicks workout videos (found on YouTube) or choose an activity from bitesize https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/zj6pyrd. This is a great link to ‘being human’ as you consider how your muscles work and are stretching!
Wishing you all well,
Mrs Ravenor, Mrs Elias, Mr McMahon, Miss Alefounder, Mrs Dredge, Mrs Alaka-Baruwa and Mrs Petre.
