School is closed for the Easter break, so learning is paused on our class pages. Care is only for specific families to support the response to COVID-19.

Class 6

‘Together we learn, believe and achieve’

Welcome to Class 6

Home learning

            This is where you will be able to find your learning activities for each day. Our timetable will be as close to our one at school as possible (so you will be doing the same subjects on the same days you would at school). Most of the instructions will be on this page but sometimes there might be documents to look at as well. These will be uploaded here for you too. You will do the work in the exercise books that you have taken home - remember to maintain the standards you would in your books in school. 

             Each day there will be a new set of lessons for you - these will be at the top of the list but we will also leave the previous days on in case you need to go back for anything. The new work will go up by 8pm the night before but you don't need to look at it until the morning. 

             If you have any questions or you want to speak to me about anything to do with your learning then please do email me. I will check my emails every day (although the time might not be the same each day). 

Good Morning Class 6

Easter Holidays!

 

Over the Easter Holidays you will not have learning set each day but I do have one task I would like you to do (similar to holiday homework you would have got if you were at school). I have also uploaded the precepts and remaining Lent challenges to keep you going (I have put these at the bottom of this post at there are quite a few of them). I won’t check my emails so much over the holidays but feel free to send me a message if you want to and I will reply when I can.  

 

The answers for yesterday’s Maths:

Mind Workout

  1. Figure 2 – number of dots on edges and vertices (n): 4

      63.2cm²

 

Easter work:

Over Easter you will not have work set each day. What I would like you to do is plan an activity that could keep you busy over a number of days at home (think similar to the Lego Challenge or Taskmaster challenges). Think about an activity that can be done without too much specialist equipment being needed (so as many people can do it as possible) and something that is fun and encourages creativity.

 

If you are stuck for ideas, just have a look online – so many people are doing things each day, for example:

Lydia Monks – an illustrator -  is teaching people how to draw different animals

Alex Horne – a comedian – is setting family friendly taskmaster challenges every day (or two

Frank Cottrell Boyce – the author of Cosmic – is reading a chapter of Broccoli Boy after the end of normal school hours every day.

R J Palacio – author of Wonder – is reading a chapter of Wonder every day.

 

I would like you to create a poster or document explaining your activity and email it to me. I will then collate all of your ideas together and post it on the website so you all have lots of ideas to keep you busy!

 

In addition

You also have Music work set from Mrs Robinson – please look in the Music section of the resources page on the website for more information.

 

If you have not yet sent me a book review to add to our list for the website then please write this and email it to me. This is not a 3 word review, this is more in depth, similar to my review of Fire Boy in this week’s newsletter.

Today’s work:

Daily Mile (we usually spend 10 minutes on this at school)

Every Monday-Friday Joe Wicks – The Body Coach – is putting a 30 minute PE lesson on his Youtube channel. See if you can do at least some of this each day (on PE days I will ask you to do the whole routine).

 https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1

 

Spag (we usually spend about 15/20mins on this at school)

CGP Spelling book

Double consonant p6-7

(Don’t forget you have the answer book so you can mark this yourself when you are done).

 

Maths (we usually spend 1 hour on this at school)

Your final lesson on Area and Perimeter!

L.I. I can create formulae for the area of shapes.

Work on the Mind Workout on p99 of the Textbook. Use the corners of the squares of your book as dots to draw your shapes.

Need help? Copy out the table provided and fill this in with your own information.

 

You have 2 options for your work today:

Mild: Mind workout Wb6b p79

Spicy: Wb6b Review 10 p80-82

 

It would be good to also find 10 minutes for Times Tables Rockstars at some point today.

 

Guided Reading (we usually spend 15/20mins on this at school)

Read your own choice of book.

 

I would also like you to email me and tell me:

What book you are currently reading (title and author)

What rating you would give it out of 5

3 words to describe it.

 

My example:

I am reading Fire Boy by J M Joseph

4.5/5

Superhero, funny, mystery

 

English (we usually spend 1 hour on this at school)

This is a 2 day piece of work.

L.I. I can write a narrative, developing character in the same way as R.J. Palacio

The start of my Halloween story:

The party had been kind of boring – everyone was with their girlfriends and she still hadn’t arrived.

“Don’t worry mate, she’ll be here and it’s not like she’s going to say no to hanging out with you” Henry said, sensing my growing nerves.

I nodded, not trusting my voice to not give me away. We got on to talking about Forza – the latest game I was playing on my X-box and I didn’t even notice when she came down the stairs with Savanna. It wasn’t until Henry nudged me then headed over to Savanna that I realised that Summer had arrived.

Who have I written as?

How do you know?

How is my character feeling?

How do you know?

Finish writing your story of Savanna’s Halloween party.

 

RE (we would usually spend 1h30 on this at school)

L.I. To consider ways to worship during self-isolation

Because of the Coronavirus lockdown, Christians are unable to attend church in the UK currently.

Look at https://www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-churches and find out how Christians are being encouraged to continue worshiping from home.

What do you think of this?

Are there any practices you might want to adopt?

Is there anything else you or family members are doing as well/instead?

It is incredibly unlikely that Churches will not be able to hold services over the Easter Weekend.

 

As such, I would like you to plan a series of activities that Christians could do on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, at home. Think about your learning on each of these days and the events in the Bible.

How could your activities reflect the feelings associated with the events of each day?

Challenge: Could you think of different activities for adults, children your age and younger children?

Perhaps you could think of different activities for people with different levels of faith?

 

Why not share some of your ideas with friends and family? Perhaps your family might like to do some of these things or you could share them with friends. It might be that you have some similar ideas and so could arrange to do them at the same time, on the same day, in your own houses.

Good Morning Class 6 - Ready for week 2?

Maths (we usually spend 1 hour on this at school)

Area and Perimeter Lesson 6 p94

L.I. I can find the area of parallelograms using formulae.

You will need to draw out a parallelogram and cut it out so that you can then cut out the triangles as the In Focus task asks you to.

If you know the formula for area of a triangle, and that a parallelogram is made up to 2 equal triangles, what might the formula for area of a parallelogram be?

Read through the Let’s Learn and then complete the Guided Practice and the workbook p77-78

If you finish: Draw your own triangles and use the methods from the book to show how you might find the area.

It would be good to also find 10 minutes for Times Tables Rockstars at some point today.

How does Summer feel while she is at the party?

What might make her feel awkward?

How has the author shown us that Summer is feeling awkward?

 

Map out the events of the party.

Think about what happens and what each of these three characters would think about what happened: Julian, Savanna, Summer.

 

You are going to write a short story of the Halloween party from the point of view of either Savanna, Julian or Summer.

 

Think about how you might establish your character’s voice through what they say and how they are feeling (try to use show not tell for this).

 

Challenge: What information would your character know and what would they not know (e.g. why other characters are feeling the way that they are). How can you show what is known and unknown?

 

Success critera

I think about the things my character might say and use this tone in my writing.

Music (We usually spend 45mins on this at school)

To create our own family hakas

Why are Hakas traditionally performed?

Why are they performed now?

Watch www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eGCsEQ15L4 which shows the New Zealand team and the Tonga rugby team both performing hakas at the same time.

What are both teams trying to do?

What is the same about their hakas?

What is different?

Now that you have learnt the haka that is performed by Maori people, I would like you to create your own family haka.

Remember the key components of the Haka:

- chanting

- a steady beat

- actions to accompany your words

Create your own haka for your family - to keep away people who aren’t following the rules to stay at home!

Challenge: Can you teach your haka to someone else in your household?

Area and Perimeter: Lesson 5 p90 Tb6b

L.I. I can calculate the area of triangles using formula

Work through the Let’s Learn and the guided practice.

Need help? If you are finding the Let’s Learn a bit confusing then you might find it easier just to move to the workbook pages and see if you can use the examples from p90 to answer p91. You could then go back and do the guided practice questions once you are feeling more confident.

 

It would be good to also find 10 minutes for Times Tables Rockstars at some point today.

PSHE (we usually spend 30mins on this at school)

L.I. To understand that news is targeted to appeal to a specific audience.

When I use social media, I have adverts and links to articles that may interest me pop up.

How do they know what might appeal to me?

Google and other companies will collect information about what I look at online and will use this to send me information they think will be of interest.

What are the benefits of this?

What could be the drawbacks?

What might the impact be if I only ever see news articles about the topics which I am particularly interested in?

 

Companies can use this to influence our thinking as well. For example, if they know we are interested in reading about football, they could also include information about a political party and their views on football. If we keep being provided with the information about the political party alongside the information we wanted, this could start to influence our thinking and change our opinion.

Why do organisations do this?

How do you feel about this?

 

Think about how we can make our internet use safer.

How can we reduce the number of personalised ads we receive?

How can we ensure we are confident that the information we view is correct?

Need help? Think about the options often included within our settings that let us restrict the information (ads) that companies are allowed to send us as well as the information that our computers and accounts send to them.

 

Write a guide to personalised ads and how internet companies use information about you.

 

Guided Reading (we usually spend 15/20mins on this at school)

L.I. To design my Centre of Aboriginal Culture.

http://gallery.records.nsw.gov.au/index.php/galleries/sydney-opera-house/sydney-opera-house-drawings

Have a read of the information in the above webpage. Jorn Utzon had to submit sketched designs of his building to enter the competition to design a new National Opera House for Australia.

Look at the sketches on the website and notice where notes have been added and how many sketches there are showing all different aspects of the building.

 

I am going to be asking you to design a new “Centre of Aboriginal Culture”.

What will you need to consider when sketching out your building?

Success Criteria for your building design:

  • My design considers practicalities such as how people get into the building and how they are able to access different parts of the building.
  • My design celebrates Aboriginal culture (think about drawing on your learning from Term 3 – Dot Painting but also the history of Colonisation and how you might mark that).

Sketch out their design for the building. You will need to produce 3 sketches of the building – face on, side on and bird’s eye view. If you would like to, colour your sketches using colouring pencils.

Challenge: Produce a floor plan for the interior of the building.

 

If you want to, you could build a model of your building just like Jorn Utzon did when entering his design.

RE (we would usually spend 1 and a half hours on this at school)

How might belief in the resurrection help people to face problems in the world today?

What do you think the central messages within the resurrection might be?

How might a Christian explain the purpose of the resurrection?

Draw a table in your book with 3 columns.

In the first column, make a list of problems that we might face in our lives – personal problems rather than those on a global scale.

How might belief in the resurrection help when faced with these problems? Record your ideas in the second column.

Is there anything that might challenge your faith at that point? Record your ideas in the third column.

Jesus rising again and offering eternal life may help people to not put too much focus on physical belongings, provide comfort when ill or grieving, or may make people feel less lonely.

 

Write a poem showing how faith in the resurrection might support someone in their personal life.

Need help? In your poem, focus on 3 stanzas, 1 showing how the resurrection might help you focus less on personal belongings, 1 showing how it might provide comfort when ill or grieving and 1 showing how it might help people feel less lonely.

 

This term we have been thinking about the following key question

What difference does the resurrection make to Christians?

Write the question out into your book and then underneath write your own personal answer to this. In your response you should aim to answer the question with reference to the Bible, our work from this term and your own personal views.

Need help? Bible passages that might be worth having a read of: Luke 24: 1-49, John 3:16, 11:25-26, 14: 2-3

Over the next 2 days I would like you to finish reading “Part 2 – Via” up to p117 of Wonder

 

English (we usually spend 1 hour on this at school)

This is a 2 day piece of work.

L.I. I can make inferences about Via based on what she says and does.

Think about what life is currently like for Via.

What is happening to her?

What is happening around her?

How might she be feeling about the changes taking place?

Mind map the difficulties that Via is facing at the moment.

Need help? Think about her relationships with August and Miranda and how these are changing.

What advice might you give to Via?

What support might she need?

Your task: Write a letter to Via about the difficulties she is facing at the moment and advice on what she might do about it.

Mild: Focus on her difficulties with Miranda and what she might do about these.

Spicy: Include a range of the difficulties Miranda is facing and what she might do about these.

Hot: Also in your letter make suggestions as to why Via might find each thing hard and how she might be feeling about it (and why).

Success Criteria for your writing

- I can structure my letter correctly with an address, greeting and an introductory paragraph.

- I can provide context on the problem Via is facing, explain why this is a problem for her and make suggestions as to what she might do about it.

- I maintain my viewpoint, writing in the 2nd person.

 

DT (we would usually spend 1 and a half hours on this at school)

L.I. To explore how we can make our structures strong.

Remember that Jorn Utzon became the architect for the Sydney Opera House because he won a competition to design the building?  I am going to be asking you to prepare entries for an architecture competition of our own.  Before we start designing our building we will need to do some training as architects.

As you are now at home, it might be tricky for some of you to make a model of your building design. It would be great if you could but if not, this lesson might also come in handy for completing your architecture homework you were given at the start of this term.

What materials might we use to make a replica model of a building?

How can we strengthen these materials (particularly paper and card)?

Using paper only, I would like you to create a structure to hold a tin can of food (ask your parent before you go raiding the kitchen cupboards!)

Need help? Think about using tubes of paper or adding diagonals into squares and rectangles for further support.

Try out different ideas and problem solve – this is the time to experiment and see what works best for building a sturdy model.

 

I would like you to write a reflection of what you have done and found out. In your reflection you should include:

- What I did.

- What went well.

- What could be improved.

- What this has taught be about strengthening models.
