Hi everyone! I hope that you are all OK at home. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are getting on. Even if it just to say hi! Next week is half term so there will be no work set. I hope that the sun is shining and we can all have the opportunity to have some extra fresh air and exercise with people in our household. For those of our Year 6 family who will be celebrating Eid, may I wish you 'Eid Mubarak' and hope that you and your families have a blessed day and a blessed year to come.
**Please just do what work you can and please please don’t worry if you don’t do it all. I’d rather give you lots to keep you busy than not enough. If you wish to do alternative activities, that is also absolutely fine. Just do what is right for your family situation. Also, if you get stuck or are unsure, please just ask me. **
Today’s activities are as follows:
Theme: Climate Change
Read the following three poems attached to the bottom of the class webpage.:
- Ways to Change the World – Start Now by Matt Goodfellow
- Munch, Crunch, Packed Lunch … by Liz Brownlee
- Couch Superstar by Matt Goodfellow
All of the above are taken from the extract of Be The Change by Liz Brownlee, Roger Stevens, and Matt Goodfellow
After reading the three poems, select your favourite one. Write down which is your favourite giving reasons for your choice.
Now watch the rap Refuse, Reuse, Recycle on Earth’s Ekko: Together We Can Make A World of Difference from 11:00 – 12:22 mins here:
After watching the rap, create your own based on climate change. This may be completely written by yourself or you may choose to edit one of the poems you read earlier.
If you do choose to edit one of the poems, you could edit it in these suggested ways:
- adding an extra verse you have written and/or a chorus which could go between each stanza
- redrafting some of the lines using https://www.wordhippo.com/ to help with improving the vocabulary
- removing some of the original lines / changing the order.
Once you have written your rap, have a go at performing it to someone in your house. If possible, you could also record it to send to me!
Computing – Spreadsheets
Go onto Purple Mash. On the 2do, there are Spreadsheet activities for you to do. There is the video to help guide you through it (the top right hand corner next to the red exit arrow). The video tells you how to access the other activities.
Science – The human body
Using the notes that you made yesterday or using some of your own research, draw and label the bones in the human skeleton in your green book. Or if you want to be more creative, you can make a model of it using items from inside your home or natural materials collected from outside. If you choose to be more creative, please take a photograph and send it to me.
And as always, any questions please just ask.
