W/C 8th June 2020

Dear Year 6,


Our science topic for this half term is 'Darwin's Delights'. To introduce the topic this week, you will be researching Charles Darwin and creating a mind map with the information.


Thank you to those of you who responded to our emails last week, and sent your yearbook entries. We hope you have been practicing, singing and dancing to, your Leavers' Song too - Justin Timberlake's 'Can't Stop the Feeling!' 


The following two YouTube links will help you and give you some ideas for dance moves!


We have split the song in to 4 equal parts: part 1 (lines 1-14), part 2 lines (15-33), part 3 lines (34-55) and part 4 (lines 56-70). Each of you will sing 1 part out of the 4 parts - see attached list for further explanation. Each part is approximately one minute long and we will provide more information next week about how to record your part of the song. 


Stay safe & keep dancing!

Day 5 - Friday Family Maths Challenges

Each day has a series of questions which lead you through the learning. Show your work in your pink home learning journals or in your yellow maths jotter books. There are answers, with explanations, for each day's work so you can mark your work when you have completed it.

Here is a link to the website where you can access the videos prior to each lesson: (summer term week 6)

Friday's family maths challenges consist of 10 challenges:

* Challenges 1-6 age related for Year 6.

* Challenges 7-10 above age related for Year 6.

Good luck!


Please continue with your English Mastery resources - week 6. This week you will read a text called 'Monstrous Devices' , answer some comprehension questions and write an advert. You will also complete some grammar work and practise your spelling.





Whole Class Guided Reading

Last week we started to read 'Cogheart' by Peter Bunzl in class. There is the link to read the prologue and Chapter 1 on last week's home learning page. This week we would like you to complete some activities based on what you should have read. Please complete the word analysis, fact retrieval and inference questions in your home learning books.

You can self-mark these as the answers are also below. Don't cheat! wink


No new tasks have been assigned this week. Please ensure that you are up-to-date with all your spelling tasks and continue on your own spelling pathway.

Religion - The Sacrament of Confirmation

At Pentecost, Jesus sent the gift of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles. We can receive the gift of the Holy Spirit at the sacrament of Confirmation.Watch the link below and read the information then see if you can answer the questions.

Science - Charles Darwin


Using the information from the Word document and PowerPoint presentation below, create a mind map with all the information you can find out about the scientist Charles Darwin: you can decorate your mind map with suitable images too.
