Good morning Year 6.

We will continue with our home learning aviation topic. We still have four weeks to go before the end of term so a huge well done to those of you who are completing your home learning regularly.

English 

Today, I'd like you to research who the Wright brothers were. Create a fact file or a biography with key details from your research. I will be your audience so think about that when you write your sentences and make sure your vocabulary is carefully chosen. Here is a clip to get you started but this should not be your only source of research. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt3pry6cWJM 

Below are some success criteria for a non-chronological report and a biography to guide your writing.

Science

Today, we will test the planes that we made yesterday. 

We know that to make our tests fair, we need to control the variables: the same size piece of paper for each plane so the weight is the same, throw each plane from the same starting position, same person to throw each time. 

We also know that to make the results more reliable, we should repeat each test several times, controlling the variables to keep the test as fair as possible.

Some superb work completed yesterday. Well done to you, if you managed to send some on Showbie. 

Here are today's home learning tasks, as we continue with our work on our topic, Theme Parks.

English -

1)Choose the name of your park, its audience and main attraction. 

2)Today we will start writing our leaflet to design our Theme Park. Look closely at the features of the introductions I have given you. Colour code each feature and highlight them in the different examples. We have done something similar in class before. 

3)Write your own opening for your own park, using the good examples to help you.

Maths - Today we will look at solving problems linked to Theme Parks. 

Technology - we will continue to make our roller coaster models that we started yesterday. See Ellie's and Zak's photos to inspire you.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7XYzPfutBs 

Tuesday 16th June 2020

Hi Year 6.

More work on our new topic of Theme Parks today. Here are your home learning tasks.

If you have time, you can also complete some Time Table practise on TT Rockstars.

English -  

Theme Parks attract new customers using leaflets.

They try to persuade people to visit by showing what is available and making the park look very attractive and exciting.

Look at the leaflets below to find out which features you can see. Include examples of what you find like I have shown you in the example. Do not just tick the box.

This will help us to identify what a good persuasive leaflet needs for when you write your own.

Maths - 

Today, we are going to design our own theme park, thinking about the area of each attraction we add, and then calculating the overall cost to build our park. 
Each square on your plan represents 50m2 so if you want to add a children’s ride at 100m2, you would need to colour two squares on your map yellow. You will probably want more than one children’s ride, and lots of other types of rides, attractions and amenities which you can see on the sheet below, so space them out.

Once you have added all of the rides, attractions and amenities, add up the total cost and let me know how much it has cost to build you park. 

Technology - 

Today, we are going to make a model of a roller coaster. Roller coasters have a definite 3D structure which can be difficult to make from flat card. Watch this video to see how you can use tabs to create 3D curves from flat 2D card.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7XYzPfutBs

You don't have to copy the shape in the video, you can design your own perhaps based on your own experiences of roller coasters or look at this video to give you ideas for shapes. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNAbQYU0wpg 


Here is the printable sheet, but if you don’t have a printer, you could still make it by drawing the simple shapes onto cardboard - a cereal box would work brilliantly. You’ll also need scissors (check with your adult first) and glue or Sellotape.

I’d love to see your models, so remember to send me some pictures on Showbie. 

Monday 15th June 2020


Good morning everyone. We are starting a new topic and this week is Theme Parks!

Some of your peers have returned to school this morning but you will all be completing the same tasks whether you are at home, or at school. Here are your learning tasks for today. Please continue to upload your work on Showbie, when you can.

Well-being/ Citizenship - 
Thinking about how rules have changed in different places that we visit: school, shopping centres, bus stations etc. Remember to click on the slide, to make it bigger.

 

English -

Theme Parks attract visitors with leaflets/websites to make them sound exciting places to visit. Research these theme parks to see what rides, facilities and attractions there are. You can choose how to present your work such as a poster, labelled drawings, Powerpoint or PicCollage (which is free to download on tablets/ipads)This will help you with your design task.

https://disneyland.disney.go.com/attractions/ https://www.thorpepark.com/explore/theme-park/rides/ https://www.blackpoolpleasurebeach.com/park-map/

 

Maths -

Design your own theme park map using area. Think about how many family rides, adult rides, children's rides and facilities such as toilets, cafes, shops etc; there will also need to be pathways in between.

They will all need to fit on your grid which is 29 squares wide x 15 squares down, if you don't have a printer. Colour code each part to match the sheet. E.g yellow for children's rides. 

Calculate the total spend for your park using the price list. I'd love to be able to show your work, so remember to send me photographs on Showbie. 

Friday 12th June 2020

Good Morning Everyone. Here are today's tasks.

Maths

Some questions are tricky but try your best. Miss out any you are stuck on and come back to them later. 

English

Computing
Computers use a code system. Can you use the clues provided to be a genius code breaker?

Tuesday 31st March 2020

English
In writing, we can compare things to help our reader get a better understanding of what we mean. Today we will look at similes and metaphors which make comparisons.

You can use them in your work but they have to make sense. For example, you can't say that the cheetah sprinted as fast as a snail as it wouldn't make sense as snails move slowly.
1. Watch this video about similes and metaphors.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoSBVNUO2LU


2. Complete the task below about metaphors and similes.


3. Listen to this. How many examples of similes can you find? Record them in your book. ]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GLSsX7Rg2s 


4. Add one simile and one metaphor to your story about Mum's perspective from The Present. Remember to add arrows to show where you'd like them to go. 

Art

The picture below is one of Da Vinci's most famous pieces of art - The Mona Lisa. You saw this when you did your virtual tour of the Louvre Gallery in Paris. 

Over the years, many people have tried to decide why she is smiling or even if she is smiling at all - her mouth has generated many questions...

Answer these in your red home book - there is no right or wrong answer; I am more interested in your ideas.
1. Who is the young lady and how does Da Vinci know her?
2. Do you think she is wealthy or poor? What makes you think that?
3. What is she thinking?
4. Why is she smiling?
5. Think of a joke he might have told her to make her smile?

Now create a collage of mouths of different shapes and sizes: sad, smiling, laughing, lots of teeth/ no teeth/ human or animal - you decide!
You can draw them, collect pictures from the internet or magazines. You can arrange them however you want. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Well-being
Choose one of these cards with the message that want to remember about yourself. This is called your Mantra. Practise saying it to yourself throughout the day.

Have a fabulous every day everyone

Monday 30th March 2020

Aviation

We started our new topic today. Here are some great examples of how we applied our learning of plotting coordinates in the four quadrants: can you see what flight objects we formed?

Wow Year 6. You have enjoyed our work on Theme Parks this week. Check out Josh's and Ellie's fabulous leaflets and Simran's great poster. There has been some superb problem solving and great park designs from Jayden and Faye with a million budget.

How fabulous are these examples of 'learning at home'? 

 

Year 6 made their own 'blood' where we learned about red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. 

Impressive!

What a detailed diagram you have created! Some year sixes learned that although our hearts all do the same job, they don't look exactly the same on the inside.
