Dear Year 6 children and parents
We hope you and your families continue to keep safe and well. All the staff at CWPS look forward to welcoming many of you back on Monday 1st June, but for those of you who are not coming in, here are some more learning activity suggestions. Do continue to keep in touch on the Year 6 email address:
The home learning activities we are suggesting for this week include some English and Maths tasks and also some History and Science activities.
Please see the attached documents which give you a chance to practise your reading comprehension skills. There is a short story called ‘The Lie’ to read first and then a set of questions to try and answer.
If your child likes stories but is not so keen on reading longer books, why not have a look at this link with them which takes you to a set of free audio books.
If you haven’t done so already, do have a look at some of Mr Shammas’ YouTube lessons (MrShammasTeaches) where you’ll find everything from werewolves and adventure stories to poetry.
For Maths, there are a four sets of ‘Speedy Maths’ questions for you to try. We have also attached the answers separately so that work can be marked once completed.
This weekend marked the historic SpaceX rocket launch in the USA. For your History work this week, you could create a factfile or poster or even write a newspaper-style article including lots of fascinating facts about this event. Some ideas for things you could include are:
- Who was behind the launch
- Reasons why the launch is so historic
- Who was in the rocket and facts about them
- Any other fascinating facts you can find
Please present this work in any way you wish and, as always, do email it to us to have a look at if you want to.
Why not have a try at the attached Science questions and activities. One is thinking about whether things are natural or manmade and the other recaps the work we did earlier on in the year about exercise.
Until next time, take care and stay safe.
Mrs Tomlins and Mr Shammas
