Home Learning W/c 23rd November 2020 (Due to Bubble Closure)

Hello my hard working Year 6 pupils. I hope you are all continuing to feel well at home. Thank you so much for all your hard work and effort at home last week. Miss Milivojevic, Mrs Riorden, Ms Crolla, Mrs Prestwich and I have been so proud of you all and the amount of home learning has been phenomenal!  What I have been particularly pleased to see is how you have worked on maintaining a high standard of quality and presentation too so that the work you send through to us looks very close indeed to how it would have looked in school. You should be proud of yourselves as home learning doesn’t feel the same as learning at school, but you are not letting this stop you from progressing!

It has been lovely to chat to you all too when we made home phone calls.  I can’t tell you how excited all the staff are to know we will be back together next week on Wednesday. I have lots of fun things planned, but, in the meantime, please keep on top of your home learning as all our lessons will build on this!

Your suggested timetable for Monday and Tuesday is below. You can download it by clicking on the button below the image. Please remember to send all your work to me on Showbie and we can be in touch daily so that I can offer you help where you need it personalised to your needs. If you have any worries too, just send me a message and I’ll call you to chat.  Mrs Prestwich, Mrs Riorden and Ms Crolla are also here to help you so you’ve got lots of help and there’s no need to ever be stuck!

Monday 23rd November

AM Session 1 Maths: L.O. To add and subtract fractions.

Your lesson today is all about adding and subtracting fractions. You have covered this in Y4 and Y5 so you will be building on prior knowledge. I know that fractions can be tricky so I have included a wealth of worksheets for you to choose from covering revision and fluency of the skill. I recommend that you watch the tutorial first and then try at least one of these first before you try the White Rose Maths worksheet.

AM Session 2 English: L.O. To distinguish between fact and opinion.

Please listen to chapter 3 of War Horse before you start your English tutorial today

Click here to listen to chapter 3 of War Horse.

Your English lesson today is to practise distinguishing the difference between fact and opinion. I have prepared a tutorial for you to watch first to guide you with this. Then you have a worksheet to complete and your own extension challenge which will be explained on my tutorial. It’s important that you have listened to Chapter 3 of War Horse as all the work will be within the context of the story and your extension challenge will need this background understanding first, so sit back and relax and enjoy the fantastic story first.

Click here for fact or opinion Burn 2 Learn activity. Click here if you need more practise about fact and opinion.

 

PM Session 1 History: L.O. To use sources of information to learn about the experience of women in WW1.

Your history lesson today is to find out all about the role of women in WW1 and their experiences. Join in my tutorial first where I will guide you through the task. This research is really important as you will use it for writing lessons back at school when we will write letters and diaries in role as a woman who works for the Women’s Land Army. Last year, this was one of my favourites pieces of writing, but the research was absolutely key to the success of the writers, so take time on this task to learn as much as you can now. I have attached a research grid below to help you too. If we were at school, I would print this as A3 to allow you more space as you will find so much out about this subject, so use the grid but don’t limit your research due to space; just use extra paper.

Click here for a research grid to guide your notes about Women’s Land Army.

Here are some great videos for you to watch to get you started but please continue with your own research to add to this.

 

PM Session 2 Art: L.O. To improve drawing curved lines.

I’m so excited to get back to school to finish our art project. The work you have been sending through has been stunning so you are almost ready to go to the main art piece. Before that, I would like you to practise the skill of drawing curved lines. You’ll probably think this is easy but practise will make all the difference to the quality of your lines. Watch the short Youtube tutorial and practise. In addition, if you didn’t try the second poppies tutorial, I’d like you to complete it. I have put the tutorial again for you below so it’s easy for you to access. This will build your confidence at drawing poppies in a variety of different orientations and you can practise your curved lines too for the stems.

Tuesday 24th November 2020

Hello Year 6. It’s your last day of home learning so give it your very best effort today and I can’t wait to see you in the morning back at school!  Please bring ALL your home learning work with you from day 1 up to today’s work as we’ll be building on this back in class so you’ll need to be able to refer to it in class. Enjoy your day.

AM Session 1 Maths: L.O. To continue adding and subtracting fractions.

Today you will build on your maths lesson from yesterday and continue to practise adding and subtracting fractions. Please watch the video tutorial below first to support your understanding. There are some extra worksheets below to build your confidence so remember to try these first before the White Rose Maths worksheets if you are not feeling very confident. Then you can move to the White Rose Maths sheets after that. Remember to challenge yourself by choice so this means that if you are starting to feel more confident on one of the easier sheets, don’t bother finishing the sheet, just progress yourself as quickly as feels comfortable for you. Similarly, if you start with the White Rose Maths sheet and find it tricky, then stop and try one of the other sheets; you can always come back to the White Rose Maths worksheet after that. Please send all your work to me on Showbie.

AM Session 2 English: L.O. To vary sentence starters.

For home learning today, you are going to build on your success of using coordinating conjunctions to start sentences, and now start to experiment with other ways to start sentences so that you have variety and avoid always starting with nouns and pronouns. You actually used some of these sentence starters last week in history when you wrote poems to reflect the conditions of trench warfare. Do you remember that in the tutorial, I gave you a pattern to guide your poetry which was to start with an ly (adverb), ed (past tense verb) and an ing (present progressive verb) word? You’ll be building on this today in your English, so join me now in my tutorial and we’ll practise it together!

 

 

 

 

PM Session 1 RE: L.O. To learn about another inspirational Christian called to serve for justice.

During home learning so far, you have learnt about Martin Luther King and Oscar Romero who both felt called by God to serve and work for justice. This week, I would like you to learn about another inspirational Christian called Dorothy Day. Please join my tutorial to support you with this and then complete the task which will be fully explained on the tutorial.

As you learn about her, start to look for similarities and differences between Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King and Oscar Romero.

Here is a good video to get you started with your research. In this video, you will learn how Dorothy Day made mistakes but how she felt called by God to make a difference and work for justice.

 

PM Session 2 PE: To keep our minds and body fit and healthy.

Your final lesson of the day is PE. Please change into your PE kits and get active!

Bubble Closure Tasks

Dear Year 6,

I am missing you all very much already but please know this time will fly by! You have all worked so hard during Year 6 so far so let’s work hard to keep up that fantastic attitude to learning and hard work and effort you have shown me every single day since you started back in September!

Soon, our Year 6 home learning page will fill up with activities and tasks and a suggested timetable for you to follow. You don’t have to follow this but it may be useful to help you structure your time. You can do the sessions in any order and the session ends once you have completed the task to the best of your ability! You must send me the work you complete each day on Showbie. Even though you are learning at home, you still need to complete the tasks that I set like we would do in class. Myself, Ms Crolla, Mrs Riordan and Mrs Prestwich will then be giving you feedback on your work so make sure you check who is replying to your messages.

See you all very soon!

Mrs Ward x

Home Worship

Here are some songs for you to include in your home for worship while you are isolating. These song really lift my spirits so I hope you enjoy them. 

 

Monday 16th November

Good morning Year 6, here are your 4 lessons to complete today. Please remember to send messages on Showbie with any questions you have and send all your work too. It’s important that you complete all the lessons as we will be building on this when we get back to school soon, so if you miss any work out, you’ll find it tricky when we get back. As well as your daily work, don’t forget your usual home work: Mathletics, Reading Eggspress, spelling and reading for pleasure. Have a good day and I look forward to seeing your work coming through on Showbie soon.

AM Session 1 Maths: L.O. To recap equivalent fractions.

Your first maths lesson for this week is recapping all about equivalent fractions. Please start by watching the first tutorial which is a quick reminder with useful visuals to remind you. Then watch the White Rose tutorial and complete the worksheets to accompany this which are attached below. I have also set you some work on Mathletics for extra practise and there are additional worksheets below if you fancy a greater challenge.

AM Session 2 English: L.O. To use modal verbs.

To support you with this lesson, go to the tutorial section and watch the tutorial I have made for you. You’ll also find the top tips and some modelled examples. Then complete the worksheet below which will help you to practise identifying modal verbs. After you have completed the worksheet, I would like you to write your own sentences using modal verbs. Like in class, use War Horse characters and story line as your stimulus and try to build in worthy words. Please send all your work to me on Showbie and specifically point out any worth words you think you have used which you’d like to see on our wall back at school when we return.

Click here for modal verbs worksheet.

You know how much I like a song or a rap to help me to remember things, so here is another annoying song to help you understand and remember modal verbs. If you would like to send videos of you singing this song, that would be great! I warn you now though, it gets stuck in your head and is very annoying!

If you don’t fancy the annoying song, this simple cartoon below helps you to hear and spot the use of modal verbs in conversation. I’ll leave it up to you to choose.

 

PM Session 1 History: To learn the reasons why WW1 started.

We’ve started the topic of WW1 in class already but we haven’t yet delved deep into why it started. To help you, I have put together a tutorial so go to the Y6 tutorial section and listen to my tutorial which will guide you through the full lesson with top tips for each step. Once you have watched the tutorial, here are the resources you’ll need to complete the tasks. Don’t forget to do the vocabulary task too – all the details are in the top tips on the Y6 tutorial page.

Click here for WW1 reading comprehension.

At the end of your task, watch the Horrible Histories video below and see if it is starting to make sense. Do you understand the relationships between countries and how this impacted on Britain?

 

PM Session 2 Art: To develop the skills of perspective.

In class, we all really enjoyed working on the skill of perspective which is the skill of making objects look 3d on paper.  I have copied the last lessons LO and top tips to remind you of this. Before you started to draw your own poppies, you evaluated other artwork which included poppies and then practised your s bends. If you remember, at the end of the lesson, you had several attempts to draw poppies and you all evaluated your next steps which included things like working on your stems so that they were more consistent in size or using colours and shadows better to improve perspective. Take a minute now to look at the top tips from the last lesson below. You could always go to the Y6 webpage Autumn 2 to remind yourself too as there is a write up with some photos of your work too.

Today is a chance to work on improving your technique of perspective as we will be making a large scale piece of artwork when we return to school so this is a great opportunity for you to practise.  Here is the great tutorial which we used in class so follow it like you did and work on your own goals. I’d really like to see the perspective improve today so you’ll need to experiment with adding some darker tones to make the flowers look more 3d. Think about the angle the light is hitting the flowers and then add some small areas of darker tone to achieve subtle shadows to give a feeling of depth.

Once you’ve completed this, I’d like you to progress to the next tutorial which is below. It’s a little more advanced so I think you’ll enjoy it. Remember, your first attempt is simply that – your first try, so have another go until you are happy! Don’t worry that you might not have the same equipment as this artist uses; just experiment with what you do have and see what effects you can achieve. Enjoy your art at home!

 

 

Tuesday 17th November

Good morning Year 6. Here are your lessons to keep you busy and progressing. Give your very best efforts in all you do and I look forward to seeing top quality work coming through on Showbie. If you need anything at all, you know where I am – send a message on Showbie and one of the Year 6 team will get back to you as quickly as we can.

AM Session 1: To simplify fractions.

This lesson is all about simplifying fractions. This is the perfect chance for you to apply your understanding of common factors as the highest common factor will help you to simplify your fractions. Make sure you have a pen and paper ready to make jotting – don’t try to do it all in your head. First watch the White Rose Maths tutorial and join in with it. Then watch the funny rap which I have put on too. Then have a go at the worksheets.

 

If you think you need something a little easier to get you started, please try these first:

Remember, it’s challenge by choice so here are the White Rose Maths worksheets to go with the tutorial.

Click here for simplifying fractions answers. Click here for WRM simplifying fractions worksheet.

 

AM Session 2: L.O. To explore characters feelings.

Before you start the lesson, I would like you to take time to consider the pressure on working families like Albert’s and the consequences of poverty at the time in which the story is set. Albert’s family are hard working yet poor. They have rent to pay to keep their farm and the father spent money on a horse they didn’t need. He also has a drinking problem which comes at a financial cost as well as the emotional toll this takes on his family. War has started and things are only going to get worse. Take time to think about how this would impact on the family and their relationships.

Once you have considered the above, you are ready to listen to chapter 2 of War Horse using the link below. As you listen, make a list of worthy words to share with me on Showbie. Make sure you know the full meaning of any unfamiliar words by using a dictionary. As you listen you should also start to consider how each character would be feeling at each stage of the chapter. You will be looking at the following characters in more detail: Albert, Joey and Father. Ask yourself how do they feel at this point and why? How do they now feel and why? How do they feel about each other and why?

Click here to listen to chapter 2 of War Horse.

Now that you have listened to chapter 2 follow my tutorial and I will guide you through the task to complete with top tips and examples. Go to the tutorial section now and let’s get busy!

 

PM Session 1: To use sources to deduce information from the past.

Last week in school, we had a great history lesson where you started to look at different images to deduce information about the past. Some of the images were real photographs taken at the time, some were modern photos of things from the past, some were paintings of the past. I’ve put photos of the lesson below which included physically active learning to remind you of it.

We looked at a good example and a bad example which I have included for you below to remind you of the standard of answers we are aiming for. Then you had a go at commenting in detail on what the source of information told you. You commented on what you could see and what it made you think/wonder. For today’s history lesson, I would like you to repeat the task as most of you only managed to look at two sources at most. There are plenty to choose from so grab at least 3 more which really interest you and get busy. Make sure you give your very best efforts and write to a very high standard like you would in school! All the images have come from a Twinkl resource.

Click here for what a good one looks like!

 

PM Session 2: L.O. To keep my mind and body fit and healthy.

Now put your PE kits on and get busy with Joe Wicks. Once you have finished the workout, design your own exercise routine to add to it. It doesn’t have to be long but think back to what you learnt in science with Ms Crolla back in Autumn 1 when you learnt all about the different muscles. See if you can design some exercises to work different muscles. Send your ideas to me on Showbie. You could make your own exercise video like Joe Wicks to demonstrate it!

Wednesday 18th November

Good morning Year 6. You have 4 lessons to complete today to keep you learning. Please do your very best and take breaks as you need to. Don’t forget to stay on top of your homework too. You have plenty set online, but send a message to me if you need anymore.

AM Session 1 Maths: L.O. To convert improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa.

I know that you have completed work on these before in Y5 and Y4 so hopefully you’ll make connections quickly and come back up to speed with these types of fractions. I remember Mrs Harrison (Miss Clilverd) aways used to tell you that improper fractions are big heads! I like this as it helps me to remember that the numerator (number on the top) is larger than the denominator (the number on the bottom of the fraction). I have attached a funny little reminder of this for you to watch now.

Once you have watched this, try these White Rose Maths tutorial followed by the worksheets.

You could try this worksheet for fluency first if you’re not feeling confident. If not, just jump into the White Rose Maths worksheets instead.

AM Session 2 English: To plan and write a diary.

Today’s English lesson relies on you having completed the last few days so I hope you’ve completed those to a really good standard. If you have, you’ll be ready to write in role as Albert. Imagine how Albert would feel after his precious Joey had been sold and sent to war! How would you feel? You need to plan your ideas first using the planning sheet provided and then write your diary to reflect how Albert is feeling. Make sure you organise your ideas well – no stinky fish and you know what I mean by that. Make sure each paragraph has its own clear focus and you include plenty of detail. It needs to be full of thought, feelings and emotions with reasons why. Keep an eye on how you start your sentences too; remember not to start with too many nouns/pronouns and add plenty of variety into them. This is a good time to apply what you learnt about subordinating conjunctions last week. I can’t wait to read these!

Watch my tutorial before you start for more guidance and I’ll model some of the things I’ve mentioned above to help you. I have also attached photos of all my flipcharts and ideas to support you as you write, but don’t look at these until you have watched the tutorial. Then you can look at the photos of the flipcharts or even print them out.

Click here to see photos of Mrs Ward’s flip charts from the tutorial – no peeping until you’ve watched the tutorial!

 

PM Session 1 Music: L.O. To learn about significant people.

For music this week I would like you to research Dame Vera Lynn.  Here is a picture of her. Do you recognise her?  I have also included a link to listen to her singing too. Find out as much as you can about her and present it as a fact file in a style of your choice. I would like to see plenty of detail about her life and what she achieved, and her impact on others. Also, go to the tutorial section and I will go through the task with you.

Click here to listen to Vera Lynn singing.

Now listen to the lyrics of We’ll Meet Again and comment on the meaning of these connected to war.

Click here for photos of Mrs Ward’s flip chart from the tutorial.

 

PM Session 2 Science: L.O. To describe how electricity makes things work in our homes.

To support this lesson, please go to the video tutorial page of the website to find the video which Ms Crolla has uploaded to you.

Last week in school, we used our brand-new electrical equipment to investigate what we need to make a working circuit. We experimented using batteries (cells), wires, switches, bulbs and buzzers. This week I want you to look around your home and find an item that uses a simple electrical circuit to investigate. I am sure that you all have something suitable in your home.

The rules are:

  1. It must be battery-operated (not plug in or USB charged).
  2. Make sure you have permission before you take batteries out of any appliances you find.
  3. Put everything back when you have finished.

Look at the worksheet for the task that Ms Crolla has set. Please complete the task and then upload your work onto Showbie. I am looking forward to seeing what item you choose and reading your scientific explanations.

Here’s a video reminding you about how to draw circuit diagrams and top tips from Ms Crolla to guide you.

Click here for website link. Click here for science top tips from Ms Crolla.

Thursday 19th November

Good morning Year 6, here is your menu of lessons for home learning today. Please send all your work to me on Showbie and complete to your very best standard like you would in class.

AM Session 1 Maths: L.O. To place fractions on a number line.

Please complete the tutorial below and then try the worksheets to support your fluency, varied fluency and problem solving/reasoning. Complete the worksheets in the order they appear below. There are 3 layers of differentiation in the first worksheet so it will get progressively harder. Do what you can and use the answer sheets to guide you if you get stuck. The answers are really useful as you can look at it and then work backwards to see how you get to that answer so use the answer sheets wisely.

AM Session 2 English: To use subordinating conjunctions with more confidence.

We started revisiting how and why to use subordinating conjunctions in the last week that we were in school and I’m giving you more time today to practise using these. Here are your top tips from the last time we tried this as a reminder, and there is an example too. You used pictures from War Horse Chapter 1 as the context to write. To further help you today, I have recorded a tutorial for you so go to the Y6 tutorial page and watch as I model how to do this task. I hope this helps. Please use War Horse again as your context to write. I’m happy for you to continue to choose chapter 1 or chapter 2 as your focus – it’s up to you! You must write at least one sentence per subordinating conjunction on the ISAWAWABUB poster which I have attached for you below to guide you. At the end of your written task, take a break and then come back to edit and improve checking for your commas after the subordinating clause/phrase and any other basics from our class BEE zone.

Click here for ISAWAWABUB poster.

Click here for photos of Mrs Ward’s flipcharts from the tutorial – only look after you have watched the tutorial!

 

PM Session 1 History: L.O. To show understanding of the conditions in the trenches.

In this lesson, you will be using poetry to show understanding of the conditions that the soldiers suffered from in the trenches. Last week you started to research trench warfare and I would like you to reread your work and bring this information back to the forefront of your mind to use today. You may want to complete more research to help you with this too.

To see full details of this lesson, please watch the tutorial I have prepared for you on the Y6 tutorial page. You will get a full breakdown of how to complete the lesson and I will model how to start your poem, the pattern to follow and the sort of content to include.

I have also included a further resource for you to use and gain a deeper understanding of trench warfare conditions. The more you know, the better your poem is going to be. Watch my tutorial first, then get creative!

 

Click here for Mrs Ward’s flip charts from the tutorial but only once you’ve watched the tutorial!

 

PM Session 2 French: L.O. To be able to say, translate and spell the days of the week and the months of the year.

Your French lesson today is all about learning how to say the days of the week and the months of the year. You have 2 tutorials below to support really good pronunciation of the words. Then you have some worksheets to apply what you have learnt. This lesson is best repeated several times for practise so that you can say all the days and months in order and with confidence. I have included lots of resources including games, posters and word searches to help you practise today.

AM Session 2 English: L.O. To plan and write a letter.

Your English task today is to plan and write a top quality persuasive letter. I have prepared a tutorial to support you with this so check out the Y6 tutorial page and watch my lesson to give you all the top tips needed to complete this task. You will write in role as Albert whose beloved horse, Joey, has been taken to war. Your task is to persuade Captain Nichols to return Joey to you rather than take him to war. The main purpose of this task is to persuade so think carefully how you can achieve this. Of course, organisation, cohesion and well explained reasons (PEEing) will be crucial to your success with this task and you’ve practised all these skills in class already so you are fully equipped to do this task well!

Go now and watch the tutorial and then use the planning sheets to support you.

PM Session 1 RE: L.O. To learn about another inspirational Christian called to serve for justice.

Last week, you learnt all about Martin Luther King and how he fought peacefully for justice. This week, I would like you to learn about another inspirational Christian called Oscar Romero. I have prepared a tutorial to support you with this so watch the tutorial now for full guidance.

As you learn about him, start to look for similarities and differences between the two Christians. Next week you will learn about a female inspirational Christian and then, when we return to school, I have a fun physically active session outdoors linked to all three Christians, so put in plenty of effort today so that you are fully prepared for learning back at school.

PM Session 2: Reading

I have set you a reading task on Reading Eggspress. Please log in and complete the assignment set. In addition, please listen to chapter 1 on War Horse using the link below. We have started reading this together in school but it would be good to listen to the full chapter in one go from the start to the end. I will be setting you questions on it tomorrow.

AM Session 1: Maths

Maths for today is all about prime numbers. You will be using your knowledge of factors which we practised in class to work out if numbers are prime numbers or not. You will also need to use your knowledge and recall skills of times tables. If you find these are a bit slow, then take action and practise these too so that they fly off your tongue without even thinking about it!

Watch the tutorial first and then complete the worksheets. There are additional worksheets for you to access too if you find you need more practise or further challenge. The answers are there for you so mark your work and then send it to me on Showbie. Please make sure you give your best efforts like you would in class.

PM Session 1: RE

Watch the cartoon below and follow the top tips to complete a super piece of work about this inspirational Christian.

 

By the end of the lesson, you should have make a list of subject specific words and RAG rated your understanding of these word (like we do in class lots). Written a glossary of the words; you have completed 2 glossaries in Year 6 so far so you are experts at this! Make sure you write in full sentences for your glossary, use subheadings for each word and order them alphabetically. You should also have completed the worksheet with facts about Martin Luther King and written a good paragraph about what you can learn from him. Make sure you make your point, explain and give examples like we do in class so that your answers are detailed. There is a video tutorial by me on the password protected area explaining all this, so I hope this helps you. Don’t forget to send all this lovely work to me on Showbie today.

PM Session 2: PE

It’s important you have exercise and keep your body and mind healthy so it’s time to get your PE kit on and do some exercises. I have put a suggested workout below for you, but feel free to do something of your own choice instead. However, remember you isolating so you can’t do out of your own house/garden. Ignore the date on the video – it doesn’t matter, just get active. Send photos to me on Showbie and see if you can get other people in your house involved too.
