Happy New Year!

We welcome you back this year and hope that you had a lovely Christmas break.

 

Below is the attached home learning for Year 6. Please try to complete your daily maths and English work each day. Try not to rush ahead but only complete work for the day.

 

You do not need to print tasks if you're unable to - you can view the tasks online and complete your work on paper instead.

 

Please submit the tasks you have completed to your portfolio on Class Dojo.

If you're unsure of how to do this, follow the links below to find out how.

Monday is a teacher training day, so there are tasks for four days this week.

 

If anyone is unable to access a device and therefore requires the tasks to be printed, please let your class teacher know via a message on class dojo as soon as possible. Equally, if you require writing implements, books/paper please let us know. 

 

 

Suggested timetable:

 

Below you will find a suggested timetable to help you to structure your day. We realise that everybody is working under different circumstances and this is not a compulsory structure by any stretch and we know you will need to make your day work for you. It is merely a structure to help if you feel you need it. 

 

Even though the timetable structure is a guide, we would like all of the children to complete a series of tasks as a minimum:

 

  • Complete daily maths lessons (flashback 4, fluency and reasoning using video provided)
  • Complete daily English lessons
  • Complete a daily revision task (see bottom of page)
  • Daily reading (you could use your Rising Stars account or read a book of your own) and TT rockstars

 

Over the week we would like the children to do some further tasks:

 

  • Complete two RE lessons per week
  • Complete two topic lessons
  • Complete some fitness activities - the link to access 'The Nation's PE Teacher Joe Wicks' on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ 

 

 

Maths

We start every lesson by completing a Flashback 4 so start with one each lesson.

This week, we are learning about decimals. Please watch the video link and then complete the fluency sheet. After completing the fluency sheet, then complete your reasoning activity. You can choose between Mild, Spicy or Extra hot or even complete all three if you fancy a challenge! There is an extra challenge for anyone who wants to give it a go.

Flashback 4 and extra challenge for this week

Please note: a few of the lessons within this unit are recap lessons put in by White Rose to fill the gap in learning the children missed in Year 5. They are part of the scheme's year 6 curriculum for this year (2020-21) so the children can build on their existing knowledge.

Topic

The Silver Sword is about a group of children who travel across Europe during World War 2. The map below follows their journey.

https://www.tripline.net/trip/journey_in_silver_sword_(europe)-5612103742601005AF6D92BFC807E1DC

 

Lesson 1- Watch the following video clip about the outbreak of World War 2.

 

See link below

 

 

This short film offers an overview of the events that led to Britain declaring war on Germany in 1939.

We hear from an eye-witness called Moya, who recalls practicing being evacuated and being issued with a gas mask the year before war was declared.

 

Listen to the audio link from the Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain.

 

See link below

 

These were the words Neville Chamberlain, who was UK Prime Minister at the time, spoke when announcing the war:

  • “I am speaking to you from the cabinet room at 10 Downing Street. This morning the British ambassador in Berlin handed the German government a final note stating that unless we heard from them by 11 o'clock that they were prepared at once to withdraw their troops from Poland, a state of war would exist between us. I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and that consequently this country is at war with Germany."

 

Whilst you are listening to the broadcast, make a list of vocabulary used by the Prime Minister.

Try to write your own speech in the style of the Prime Minister. What would you need to include? What would you want the people to feel following your speech?

 

Lesson 2- Research

Can you find out as much as you can about how World War 2 started. Here are some questions to consider.

  • When and why did World War II start?
  • What were the main countries and people involved?
  • Do you know about any key events that happened?
  • What was life in Britain like during World War II?
  • What else do you already know about World War II?

 

You can present your research in a way of your choice (notes, poster, Powerpoint etc)
