15th June

Dear Year 6 children and parents

We hope you and your families continue to keep safe and well. Here are some home learning activities for those of you who are not coming in to school and to supplement the learning of those of you who are, should you wish to try them.

Do continue to keep in touch on the Year 6 email address:

English

Writing

This week, we are challenging you to write a non-chronological report about a fictional hybrid creature - take a look at the information about crenguins to know what to do!

 

 

Spellings

This week's spellings are therefore all potentially useful for this task, and are loosely on the theme of the natural world and evolution.  There are so many more words we could have included so these are just a few ideas!

hibernate / hibernation

exoskeleton

pattern

camouflage

adapt / adaptation

evolve / evolution

reptile

amphibian

mimic

intelligent / intelligence

interdependence

habitat

specialist

hybrid

 

Word jumble

Today's word jumble is also on the same theme.  Last week's was so difficult we can't even remember what it was supposed to be...  This one is all about inheritance, so if you can think of words on that theme, you should be able to work out which one it is!

Maths

For Maths, there are a range of questions about area and perimeter. There are quite a few questions and some are a bit tricky, so just do what you can. We have also attached the answers so you, or someone else, can mark the ones you do or find out the answer if you are not sure.

 

Geography

In Geography we are going to continue looking at coasts, including coastal features and coastal erosion. This week’s activity is to watch a few video clips on BBC Bitesize and then do a short task to do with each one. The video clips are listed below and the task sheet is attached.

How coastal erosion happens                                     https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z7fr87h

Coastal erosion on the east coast of England        https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z8tyr82

How a beach is made                                                     https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zc2pvcw

 

Until next time, take care and stay safe.

 

Mrs Tomlins and Mr Shammas
