Welcome back to Term 6!

We hope that you have all enjoyed the wonderful sunshine and that you have had a good half term week.  Work will continue as before online with English, maths and one other subject set daily.  Remember to still find time to enjoy the good weather and all that this time of year has to offer in the way of playing outside and keeping fit and healthy.  Have fun!  Scroll down to see the work set for today.

Remember, if you have any questions, want to show us your work, or even just say hello, then e-mail us on Year6@horncastleprimary.co.uk.

If you send in some photos of what you have been up to this week, they may end up in the Newsletter! 

We appreciate that home learning is very different from school and can cause lots of mixed feelings. If you are feeling worried, or you want to try some games and activities to make you feel more settled or boost your mood, you can have a look at the Calm Zone created by the NSPCC (Childline).

Have a go at the ‘Jungle Dash’ Activity Sheet but please note that Miss Watts has found some errors on the Answer Sheet and has offered some comments on this – click on them to find out what they say! 

 

Some of you will have activities called ‘Rapid Rounders’ and a ‘Think It’ about punctuation which ends a sentence (full stops, capital letters and exclamation marks).

 

If you have technical difficulties accessing Education City, the activities are also available below for you to download. Please note that you do not have to complete both activities; just complete the one which is most appropriate for your learning.

Wednesday:  Place Value

Today, we are going to continue thinking about place value. Attached are some question cards – some are harder than others! See how many you can do in half an hour; move onto another if you’re finding one really tricky. You could either answer them simply off your screen or print them out and ask someone to hide them round your house to make a trail! There is a separate sheet you may use to write your answers on if you wish, followed by the answer sheet. Good luck!

Wednesday - Design and Technology

Today we have a really exciting activity for you to try. You will need to have a look around the house to find any junk modelling materials. After the amazing SpaceX rocket launch this weekend see if you can make your own rocket that would rival the one designed by SpaceX founder Elon Musk! Send in the photos to the Year 6 email so we can see your amazing efforts!

Monday and Tuesday: J. K. Rowling competition!

 

J. K. Rowling has launched an exciting competition for all children from 7 – 12.

Every day she is uploading a few chapters of her new story ‘The Ickabog’ and every day she is inviting children to draw certain things from those chapters. If you enter your pictures into the competition, they may be chosen to be included in the book when it is published in November. Further information can be found here: https://www.theickabog.com/home/

 

If you want to enter the competition, make sure you read the rules carefully so your entry fulfils all the requirements. https://www.theickabog.com/competition/

 

For today and tomorrow, we would like you to read the first two chapters of the story and choose something to illustrate from the list. Remember to use clues from the text to help you draw a picture that fits the story. We are giving you two days to complete this work – perhaps on Monday you could read the chapters, and on Tuesday you could complete your illustrations.

 

If you are a J.K. Rowling fan and have already read chapters 1 and 2, choose a new chapter to illustrate. Don’t forget to keep checking this website every day for new chapters and things to illustrate! You could be a winner!

 

Link to Story Chapters: https://www.theickabog.com/read-the-story/

Link to illustation themes: https://theickabogcompetition.com/illustration-themes For Chapters 1 and 2, you need to use the themes suggested under ‘Instalment 1’.

Today, we’re going to recap long multiplication. On Education City, watch the Learn Screen that has been set for you. Some of you have got one called Multiplayer Multiplier (long multiplication) and some of you have got Ancient Methods (short multiplication). Watch it as many times as you like.

 

Then, have a go at the treasure hunt below. If you can’t print off the clues, you could write the calculations on pieces of paper instead! There are two versions: one for long multiplication and one for short. Complete the one that matches your Learn Screen. Follow the instructions and see if you can solve them all – the answers are included, too!

 

Other activity: Family Quiz

Today is an activity for you to enjoy with all the family. If possible, try to include grandparents via phone or video call. You have to make a family quiz!

Year 5-6 words

Year 3-4 words

Year 2 common exception words

Choose the spellings that are at the appropriate level of challenge for you to work on.

 

To practise them, play the game ‘Roll and Spell’. You will need to roll a die and follow the instructions of how to practise your spelling e.g. if you roll a 1, you write it with the opposite hand to the one you usually use. The instructions for the game are below. If you don’t have a die at home, here’s an online one: https://www.online-stopwatch.com/chance-games/roll-a-dice/ Click on the die to roll it.

 

Other activity: Leaf art

Today we have a really lovely activity for you to attempt. It is called leaf art. The beauty of this is that you can get the materials you need from your garden or from your daily walk. You need to collect some leaves and twigs to make your own picture. There is a link to a YouTube video to give you some ideas, but you should try to be as creative as you can! Send in your finished masterpieces to the Year 6 e-mail. It would be lovely to publish them in the weekly newsletter!

We hope you have enjoyed the week. This will be our last update until Monday, so you can enjoy the long weekend! We have loved all the news and pictures that you have been sending to us. Keep it up!

 

Today we have a riddle from The Hobbit. An amazing book that you should definitely read!

 

This thing all things devours:

Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;

Gnaws iron, bites steel;

Grinds hard stones to meal;

Slays king, ruins town,

And beats high mountain down.

 

Have a think what it is. The answer is at the end of today's work.

Today's lessons:

English: Write and perform.

Listen to John Hegley’s poem, ‘Peter the Parrot’ by watching the video. You might recognise the tune!

 

https://clpe.org.uk/poetryline/poems/peter-parrot

 

Today we would like you to choose a familiar tune and write your own poem to go with the tune. If you don’t know what to write about, perhaps choose an animal like John Hegley did.

 

If you want to send in your poems, either in writing, or even videos of you performing them, we would love to see them!

Maths: Fraction and percentage equivalents 

Go through the Twinkl PowerPoint which explains more about converting fractions to percentages. Then you can play the matching pairs game below, either by yourself or with someone else (you could print them out or write them on pieces of paper instead). Use the second sheet to record your results, or write them in your book. The answers are included on the second page for you to check!

Other activity: Music

English: Learn and Perform a Poem

‘Mr Hobson-Jobson Says’ by Michael Rosen

https://clpe.org.uk/poetryline/poems/mr-hobson-jobson-says

 

Read the poem above – it’s full of silly words and sounds. To bring this poem to life, we would like you to perform it to someone in your family – maybe a brother or sister, mum, dad, granny, grandad (maybe over a video call!)… they will love it!

 

If you fancy a challenge, why not try and learn it off by heart before you perform it! If you think that’s too hard, maybe try and learn just one or two lines of it. Challenge yourself!

 

When you perform it, think about using your voice to make it funnier. You could make the words sound really silly by using silly voices or making your voice change volume. You could also try adding some actions. If you would like some more performance tips, why not get some from the man himself, Michael Rosen, by watching the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvV23xoZRkI

 

If you do perform it, why not get someone in your family to take a video of you and send it to us at Year6@horncastleprimary.co.uk. We would love to see them – try and make us laugh!

Other activity: Draw a self-portrait

Today we have a nice activity for you to try if you manage to find a bit of peace and quiet. We would like you to try a self-portrait. We have attached a video to give you some useful tips on how to get started. This gives basic information for where the facial features should be drawn. We would love to see your attempts, so please e-mail them to the Year 6 email address!!

Other activity: Make a sundial

Today we have a really exciting activity for you to try. You can follow in the footsteps of the great Korean inventor Jang Yeong-Sil who was one of the first people to make… the sundial!

 

Follow the video and decide how you are going to make your own sundial. You must remember to make a note every hour where the shadow falls. How cool to be able to tell the time without using a watch! Go for it Year 6! Don’t forget to email us your creations!

English: Reading and comparing two stories

This is a continuation of yesterday’s work, so if still you need the text document, you can download it from the section explaining Wednesday’s work.

Other activity: Geography - Maps

This is a nice activity for all those budding cartographers out there! Today the Year 6 team would like you to make a map of your local neighbourhood. Try to make it to scale and include all the details you would expect on a neighbourhood map. When you go for your daily exercise you could take a pencil with you to note down any extra details. This could be post boxes, phone boxes or even bus stops. If you have a library or church nearby you could make a map key to show these different places. Perhaps you could take a different route every day on your daily walk to build up a detailed map of the local area. Send in photos of your maps so we can all share your great work on the school newsletter!

Good morning, Year 6!

We hope you have all got out of the right side of bed this morning and are ready for a fabulous day! 

 

I can feel a joke coming on...

 

Why did the student eat his homework?

 

Because the teacher told him it was a piece of cake!

Today's lessons:

 

Maths: Estimation

Today’s learning is all about how to estimate. Work through the PowerPoint (in slideshow mode). Then, play the game using the Estimation Cards in the pdf below. Choose your level of challenge: one star, two stars or three stars! If you can’t print them off, you could write the calculations on pieces of paper. The answers are on the same document so no peeking! You could estimate first, then calculate the real answer, or work out the answer and then check it by estimating!

There is an alternative activity if you feel this is more appropriate to your learning, called Estimation Station (attached below). This activity also has the different ‘star’ options and involves a bit of cutting and sticking (or just writing the answers in your exercise books).

English: Reading and comparing two stories

Today and Thursday you will be working on reading and comparing two stories. We have decided to give you two days to complete this activity because it requires quite a bit of concentration!

 

Today we would just like you to focus on reading the two stories and making sure you understand them. One story is called, ‘Why the Dog and Cat Became Enemies’ and the other story is called, ‘Willow the Dog and Mitten the Kitten.’

 

Read the two texts and use a dictionary to look up any words that you’re not sure of.

 

Leave the comparison table to be completed tomorrow.

Other activity: Geography

Today we are going to be looking at geography of the world. There are three videos for you to watch followed by some activities. You do not need to complete the Twinkl activity as that involves printing out a worksheet. Just complete the online activities that can be done on the computer screen.

Today’s lessons:

 

Maths: Finding fractions of amounts

Click on the pdf below: the first section revises previous learning on how to find fractions of numbers. Then, you need to answer the questions on the Practice Sheet Hot. The answers are on the next page so only use them to check once you’ve had a go! If you are unsure, you could try the activity called A Bit Stuck? Fraction Frenzy (as well as or instead of the Hot questions).

English: Expanded Noun Phrases

The Year 6 objective that we are working on today is ‘To use expanded noun phrases to convey complicated information concisely’… so what does that mean? It means that you need to learn how to describe nouns using carefully chosen descriptions which are not too long or clumsy.

Use the PowerPoint slides to revise ‘Phrases’. Then complete the sheet ‘Under the Sea Expanded Noun Phrases’. You will need to add adjectives or a prepositional phrase to the underlined noun to create expanded noun phrases.

To help you build your expanded noun phrases, use the Help Mat below which contains some examples. Please share some of your favourite sentences with us on the Year 6 e-mail account – we’d love to read them!

Other activity: Time capsule

Today’s activity is one that Mr Walker did when he was about your age. It is to make a time capsule! This is a great time to make a capsule as we are living in a period of history that will always be remembered. You could make your capsule in a shoebox to give to yourself when you are a grown-up. Another way to store it could be to bury it in your garden so it can be discovered hundreds of years into the future! A good time capsule usually has a letter from the person making it. You could put your first name and your favourite foods and hobbies. It might include what your daily routine is now that we are all in lockdown. You also need to think about what items you might put inside. A daily newspaper perhaps, or one of your toys. Have fun and send us the photos of your finished decorated capsule and contents!!

 

Have a great day! laugh
