Tuesday 16th June 2020
Good morning Year 6! Today is the last day of home learning for this week for lots of you. I am really looking forward to having lots of you back in school and seeing your smiley faces! However, school might look a bit different when/if you are back in over the next few weeks and there are new rules and routines we will all have to learn…but we will get used to new school life! Don’t worry if you are feeling a little apprehensive or unsure about what to expect if you are back tomorrow. It is very normal to feel like that and lots of teachers are feeling the same too – it is new for all of us. No one really knows what to expect, but we will work it out together. All will become clearer for us all over the next few weeks.
If you are back in school tomorrow…
If you are not coming back to school tomorrow, please continue to access your home learning (which will be the same/very similar as what is set in school) via the website.
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Maths: using substitution to find the possible values of two variables
Continue to spend about 10 minutes working on your times tables on TTRS or hit the button in order to keep them fluent and up to the speeds and accuracy we have worked so hard to achieve.
After that, use the link below to find today’s algebra lesson on using substitution to find the possible values of two unknowns. This work is quite tricky for primary school level and you will do lots more of this at secondary school. Read all of the information and watch the videos to make sure you fully understand before you begin the worksheets. The questions in today’s lesson have more than one possible answer, so make sure you don’t move on after you have found just one solution! Answers are provided for you to self-mark once you have finished.
English: assonance, onomatopoeia and alliteration in poetry
Follow the link below for today’s English lesson on the use of assonance, onomatopoeia and alliteration in poetry. Work through the information about the poetic devices and then complete the three activities. I’d love to see a video of you performing one of the poems if you are brave enough!
Well-being: Pokémon yoga
To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, have a go at the Pokémon yoga session I have linked below.
Science: marble run
Your additional lesson today is science. Watch the video linked below about how to use the forces of gravity and friction to create a marble run.
Have a go yourself using things you might have at home: cardboard boxes, rulers, kitchen utensils… Time how long it takes for your marble (or a rolled up bit of foil if you don’t have a marble/small ball) to go from the start to finish on the base of your run without any obstacles. Then, try and slow down your marble as much as possible like in the video. Can you beat the lady in the video and make a run slower than 17.9 seconds? I would LOVE to see some videos of your marble runs and you explaining how you have created them! Please ask a parent to video you or take a photo and send them in to me. Enjoy!
Stay safe and stay at home as much as you can. So excited to see you tomorrow if you are in!
