It's the first day of the holidays, even though we have been away for a week (or more for some) now. The teachers are not setting work in the holidays. However, please do catch up with anything you have missed and finish reading Cosmic.
We have put up lots of fun resources on the resources page to stop you getting bored (and some could be educational - others are just for interest). Quite a few are things to do and create. https://www.chevening.kent.sch.uk/resources-for-fun-or-interest-1/
My only Easter homework would be to do the usual maths and reading; and then to tackle at least one of the competitions. (I will put up a competition page sometime today. https://www.chevening.kent.sch.uk/competitions/ )
It would be good to read the Easter play (or even act it out at home) - some photos would be good if your parents agree. http://thegracebookcalendar.weebly.com/uploads/2/2/8/4/22843980/the_mystery_of_easter_saturday_-_ebook_bible_study4.pdf (The book has hyperlinks to study notes too.)
Mrs Robinson has also posted a music challenge for everyone to get involved with. (https://www.chevening.kent.sch.uk/music-1/ )
I will try to add more to the slideshow gallery of work. You could also send some photos to the class page of how you are getting on if your parents agree. (https://www.chevening.kent.sch.uk/answers-and-feedback/)
The teachers won't be on their emails as much over Easter but if there is a problem, you can still send an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Have a great Easter with your family.
Don't forget the Lent challenge - Mrs Edwards has put them on the bottom of the Y6 page. (https://www.chevening.kent.sch.uk/class-6-2/ )
Daily Mile and Indoor Alternative:
Please look at the bottom to the science activity BEFORE you do this.
Read the picture book about Katherine Johnson who was employed as a 'calculator' for NASA. Click on the link below.
Approximately 10 mins.
Click on the link below to read the book:
First make sure you have marked and corrected your work from earlier in the week. If you don't understand why something is wrong, you can ask. Remember we find the answers here... https://www.chevening.kent.sch.uk/answers-and-feedback/
MNP Textbook 5A - starting at p259 Lesson 11,
followed by Workbook, Worksheet 11, p145
Identify the important information. What do we know? What amount are we starting with? What amount are we adding? Ask them if there are different questions we could ask given the information we have. Can we determine how much juice there is all together? Is this possible with the information we have? Represent the information using bar models.
What is difficult about this problem? Is it like other problems we have seen? How can we add sixths and halves? Which fraction should we change? Once pupils see that it is 8⁄6 or 1 2⁄6, ask them if they have the final solution. Is it possible to change this fraction so that it is written in its simplest form? Ask them what they need to do to simplify the fraction. Is there a common divisor? Allow pupils time to work on this, then use Let's Learn to show them the formal way of recording the solution.
After having read the book about Katherine Johnson (see above), write a report about her and the issues she faced. Please make sure you include...
1) What she did and how challenging the task was
2) The discrimination she faced (2 types)
3) Which of our Christian values she and her dad displayed (and how)
There is a film about the black women in NASA called 'Hidden Figures'. You can ask your parents whether you are allowed to watch it with them as it is a PG film.
(Approximately 60 mins in your yellow book.)
Have a go at one of the types of exercises designed for astronauts for about 15 minutes (or your daily mile / Joe Wicks exercise) and see how your heart rate changes over time. First measure your resting heart rate before exercise. Then measure your heart rate at every 5 minutes until you stop. Then keep measuring your heart rate at 5 minute intervals even after you have stopped, until it returns closely back to the starting, resting rate. Record all the measurements in a table and then try to plot them on a graph. You can measure your heart rate by counting how many beats it makes in 1 minute. (You can use your pulse in your wrist or other part of your body to find out, or beats on your chest.)
(About 1 hour in your maths book please.)
Have a go at the interactive internet program for learning french called... DuoLingo.
You just need to do the introductory test using the login details I have sent you.
