8th June

Dear Year 6 children and parents

We hope you and your families continue to keep safe and well. It was great to see many of you back in school last week. 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:

Writing

Earlier this year we spent a lot of time looking at biographies and autobiographies and you all wrote a great biography of Robert Pardew (aka ‘The Highwayman’) and a fantastic autobiographical extract of Neil Armstrong’s moon landing. It is at this time of year that we revisit this genre of writing and this week the suggested writing activity is to write a short biography of Pip Davenport. Pip Davenport is a made up character who was the inventor of fairground rides. Please see the attached document for all the information about this task as well as a planning sheet you could use if you wanted to.

 

On the theme of civil rights:

Maths

For Maths, there is an addition and palindromes activity to try. There are also three different problem solving activities to have a go at: Josh’s Book, Longstone Lighthouse and Restaurant Redecoration. Good luck!

 

Geography

In Geography we are going to start looking at coasts, including coastal features and coastal erosion. For this week’s activity, look through the attached PowerPoint on waves and have a go at the quiz questions. Once you have done this, you could create a poster or factfile on waves and have a go at the waves wordsearch which is also attached.

 

Until next time, take care and stay safe.
