Y6 Learning This Week

Week commencing 10/5/21

If you are isolating at home this week, here are some activities you can have a go at.  These will cover the same objectives as those children who are still at school.
1.    English 
2.    Maths 
3.    Spellings
4.    Topic 
5.  Books
6.    Continuous Provision

Remember that reading at least three times a week is still part of your work to do at home. You also have your CGP books to work through. The spelling and measures book are for you to use when you have some spare moments. You can choose the pages you do from those two books.

1.    English

Lesson 1 – Reading
For this lesson, you’ll be looking at an extract from Peter Pan. You need to work through the slides and have a go at answering the questions. Make sure, for the three mark answers, you answer the questions fully to ensure you get all the available marks: Answer the question, use evidence and then explain why this is evidence. 

Lesson 2 
Today’s lesson is about identifying features of an informative letter after exploring many examples from our “Posts from the Past” pack. You will then stick a letter onto a double page to annotate with features and answer questions about.

Lesson 3 
Today’s lesson involves exploring more letters from the past before also reading an advertisement from the past. Then you need to watch a Youtube clip called “Mary Poppins Nanny Advertisement” to inspire you to write your own advert for a nanny. Think about what a nanny needs to be able to do and ad it to your sheet.

Lesson 4 & 5
For today’s lesson, you will use your knowledge from yesterday’s lesson to plan a letter, before writing it up in best. The letter is to the staff at Dorset History Centre, who sent us the pack of letters, to thank them and teach them what we have learnt. When you return back to school, you can write it up on special paper, add their address and affix a stamp to send it in the post!


2.    Maths

Lesson 1: Ratio 1
This is the first lesson of a new topic so pay attention! Ratio is an important part of maths and is similar to comparison. You will need to learn the language that we will be using in this lesson as it is all new and will be utilised over the course of the next few lessons.

Lesson 2 : Ratio 2
How is ratio and fractions linked? For example if 5 out of ten children are girls, how could we write that and use it to compare to a fraction? Look back over the language from last lesson just to refresh your memory if you need to!

Lesson 3 : Ratio 3
This lesson introduces the ratio symbol! It is definitely a symbol that you have used before but mainly in English and we know it as a colon (:)! Don’t be mistaken though, you are not going to use this to introduce a list, you are going to use it in comparison and maths so don’t get mixed up!

Lesson 4: Ratio 4
There is no worksheet for today’s lesson, hurrah! However, you will need to do some calculations while you watch the video so make sure that you have a piece of paper at hand so you can complete the tasks. Pause the video at the appropriate points and have a go at actually calculating ratio!

Lesson 5: Ratio 5
Now, this is your chance to put what you have learnt about ratio into action! Use the video as a refresher of this week’s work and make sure that you really understand what it is that you have to do to calculate ratio!

3.    Spellings

Here are your words for this week:
scheme, chorus, chemist, echo, character, chef, chalet, machine, brochure, league, tongue, antique, unique, multiplication, division

Lesson 1: Write each word twice with your right hand and then twice with your left hand.
Lesson 2: Practise the words you have made using any method you like (Look, Cover, Write, Check, colouring the words, making the words out of Lego, word patterns). 
Lesson 3: Write each of the words 3 times, using a different colour for the vowels (a, e, i, o, u) and the consonants. 
Lesson 4: Ask someone to test on any of the words from this unit.
Lesson 5: Practise 15 words from the Year 5 and 6 word list in your diary. Make sure you choose ones that rea the trickier words to spell and not the ones you already know how to spell.

4.   Topic

Topic lesson 1
In this lesson research Anthony Browne and find out about him as a person and why he wanted to write and illustrate. Think about where he studied Art, the first work he did, being Children's Laureate and what books he has written.

5. Books

Topic lesson 2
Write a non-chronological report about Anthony Browne for an older child. Think about the language you will use (it can be higher level than last week) and sentence structure. Also, remember that a Year 9 child might not want to know the details about all the books; they only need to know about a couple and why they might have won awards or why people think they are important.  Still think about your presentation!
