Hi everyone! I hope that you are all Ok at home. Thank you for your responses regarding the school reopening for Y6. Ms Wright has put some more information on the whole school story on Class Dojo and there will be further information released on Friday.  Please keep in touch and let me know how you are getting on. Even if it just to say hi!

 

**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:

  1. Complete Day 33 spelling and one of the grammar activities on Purple Mash 2Do
  2. Complete an arithmetic task on Kids Classroom Secrets
  3. 30 minutes on Read Theory - try and aim to get 80% accuracy on the questions. Take you time and don't rush.

Maths –I have put a worksheet based on multiplying fractions by fractions below. We have covered this in school so it will be a useful revision exercise for you. There is a useful video as another reminder on: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrspscw

Just watch the video. You don’t need to read/access any of the others things on that page.

Please complete the questions if you can. You don’t have to print it off, just record your answers and working out in your green book or do it on the squared paper I gave you and stick them into you green book. I have posted the answers for yesterday’s work for you to self-mark and I will post the answers  for today’s work tomorrow for you.

Writing - Theme: Climate Change

This week focuses on what climate change is, what we can do to combat it and how Greta Thunberg has become so influential in addressing this issue.

When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping

 

Read National Geographic Kids – What is climate change? As you are reading, make notes for the information you find:

 https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/geography/general-geography/what-is-climate-change/

(Note: The explanation continues below the magazine advertisement).

 

Now watch CAFOD: Climate Change Animation for Primary Schools and make further notes:

Imagine you have been asked to create an information page for a magazine based on climate change. Use your notes to create your page, making sure your explanation and facts are clear. You can also use pictures/images to support your explanation.

Remember to proof-read your work as you write, checking for spelling and punctuation.

 

 

Picture News Task-

Select a period in history e.g. Ancient Egypt, Romans, Vikings, Ancient Greeks, Victorian Britain. Find out how their homes were designed and built. How were they the same/different to homes today? Write about it in your Green book. You can draw and label diagrams if you wish to.

PE To make a Tri-Throlf course and targets

 

Watch the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNkzhn8WcoY&feature=youtu.be

 

As in golf, a course with ‘holes’ is created around the house.

 

Task 1 – Draw the Outline of your Tri-Throlf course and create the targets (holes).

You need: at least three targets but can create a longer course if you have room (i.e both inside and outside.)

· Target 1 is into a target on the floor

· Target 2 is onto a flat target on the floor

· Target 3 is into or onto a target at a height

 · Additional targets to be decided by players.

 

Examples of targets

  • Into a target on the floor
  • Onto a target on the floor
  • Onto a Target at a height

Task 2 – How to Play

 1. Each player needs a ball (i.e. socks or scrunched-up paper and tape makes a good ball)

2. A player can throw (underarm, overarm) or roll the ball towards the target.

3. Players send (roll or throw) the ball from a start line (‘tee’) next to each target.

4. The next shot is taken from where their ball (socks or paper) lands until it lands in the hole. Count how many throws and/or rolls it took.

5. Move onto the next target, at the start line.

Scoring Score = the total number of throws to reach all the targets and finish the course. The winner is the player with the lowest score. Remember - The lower the score the better.

 

How to make it Easier:

  • Shorter distances
  • Bigger targets

 

How to make it Harder:

  • Longer distances
  • Smaller targets
  • Add obstacles or barriers – like a crazy gold course!

 

Take some photos and send them into me!

 

 

Any completed work can be emailed (jenny.collier@st-stephens.lancs.sch.uk) or dojo’ed to me.

 

And as always, any questions please just ask.
