Hi everyone! I hope that you are all safe and well and had a good weekend. I will try and vary the activities that I give you each day so that it doesn't become too repetitive.
**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 become stuck or are unsure, please just ask me. **
Today’s activities are as follows:
Writing – Theme: Robots
Return to the story of The Wizard of Oz from last week. Learn about why the Tin Man wanted a heart by reading Chapter 5 of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum (attached below).
Compare the Tin Man’s plight with that of Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story. The Tin Man desperately wants a heart. What does Buzz Lightyear want? (to be human and not a toy).
Think about your own robot. What might your robot wish for? E.g. a heart, a brain, new hands to do a particular job, or simply to become human.
Write a character description of your robot as it might appear in a story. Remember in addition to all the physical features you may have included in your fact file or PowerPoint earlier this week, this time you will also need to include some of your character’s thoughts and feelings, just like L. Frank Baum did with the Tin Man.
Remember to read through your writing to check it makes sense and to check for spelling and punctuation.
Picture News Task - Design your dream home!
See the image and question below as a focus. Include its location, what type of home it will be e.g. a tree house, boat, bungalow, caravan, castle and what its exterior and interior will look like. Create your design using labelled diagrams and short descriptions. Challenge – can you create a bird’s eye view drawing (floor plan) of the interior design? Use your mathematical skills and knowledge to create your drawing to scale!
RE – Eid Enrichment – Activity for today and tomorrow
In Y6, we are going to link our Eid activity to a theme based on the Angel Jibril (Gabriel). The holy Quran was revealed to the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) during the month of Ramadhan. Jibril a.s was the chosen angel to present the divine revelations to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Angel Gabriel was also the light & spirit, who came to Jesus with the words of God. The angels are always amidst us, they provide us with Allah’s protection and love.
So, I would like you to use this idea, to help to transfer some of your wishes onto the wings of angels. They could be your aspirations for the future, you hopes or your prayers, for a brighter future. Your messages could even be to one another or to any of the teachers in school.
‘Let your dreams be your wings’.
Using the pictures above as a guide and inspiration, on white paper, draw and cut our the different shapes to form a pair of wings. On the back of the biggest one, write your aspirations for the future, you hopes or your prayers, for a brighter future. You can then hang them in your house or pass them onto a friend or send them into school.
And as always, any questions please just ask.
