Year 6 Home learning

Welcome to the Year 6 Home learning Page!

It’s such a shame we can’t see you right now because we had to close the school for a while. We would really like to stay in touch with you and want you to keep working hard. Each week, on this page, you will find new learning activities for you to complete at home. Try and do as many as you can-we know you can do it! Also, don’t forget to look on the ‘Homework Websites’ page for lots more fun, learning websites.

Keep working hard, we are proud of you!

Remember you can now e-mail us, to show us what you’ve been doing.  Please include your name and class.     year6@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk

As well as your teacher messages, you’ll find a link to some activities to try as part of Mental Health Awareness Week

Maths

 

Hi there year 6. This week, you can challenge your mathematical brains with a tricky problem solving activity that require you to use your knowledge of: prime numbers, factors, multiples and square numbers to calculate the ages of members of a family.

 

Once completed, all the answers are on the final page but don’t be tempted to peek! Also attached is an arithmetic paper.

 

Mrs Shipman has also attached an activity you could try.

 

Good luck and keep enjoying your maths!

English

Reading

We have attached a chilling narrative text called Evil Star. Read the text carefully; however, remember to use a dictionary (use an online one if you need to) to look up some of that trickier vocabulary - just like we do at school with our Word Crunch. Then have a go at the questions. You will find the answers attached below to see how you got on.

 

For grammar, there is a powerpoint to view on articles and determiners. Read this and then have a go at the determiner detectives questions.

 

Writing

 

On the link below, is a 1st person walk-through style film which leads the viewer, along a path to creepy abbey. Using the descriptive techniques that you used during your ‘Graveyard Terror’ narratives, write a 1st person account of the approach to the abbey.  Build tension by focusing on the sounds heard and the effect they have on the narrator.

And don't forget to learn this week's spellings.

Topic

 

In topic we are looking at the Victorians. In particular, the impact of the railways on Victorian Britain. Attached are links to two video clips revealing some of the amazing inventions from Victorian times:

Remember you can now e-mail us, to show us what you’ve been doing.  Please include your name and class.

year5@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk               or

Hello again year 6,

We hope you are still getting on alright and are keeping yourselves busy as another week goes by. Here is this week’s work for you to have a go it!

Writing

For English this week, we’d like you to try this ‘Being Big’ writing challenge. Your task is to use the picture and story starter to inspire you to write your own narrative story – using either the 1st or 3rd person. Before you start, complete the ‘question time’, ‘sentence challenge’ and ‘sick sentences’ slides in order to give you lots of fantastic ideas, impressive vocabulary and interesting sentences to help you with your writing. We look forward to reading your efforts!

Reading

For reading there are two tasks. One is based on ‘Stormbreaker’ by Anthony Horrowitz as we know lots of you are familiar with this series of books. You have to read the extract and then answer the questions using context to work out unfamiliar words.

We’ve also included a reading comprehension with an ‘Ancient Egypt’ theme – about Howard Carter’s discovery of the ancient tomb of Tutankhamun.  Make sure you choose the difficulty level to match your reading group – 1 star = circles, 2 star = triangles and 3 star = squares.

Grammar

As you have not been in school for so long, we thought that you may have been using much more slang than usual! As a result we thought it would be a good idea for you to practise using and identifying ‘Standard English’.

First read this…

https://www.theschoolrun.com/what-is-standard-english

…then have a go at the ‘Recognising Standard English’ worksheet. Once you are feeling confident, try the SATs grammar questions for an extra challenge!

Maths

For Maths the challenge is to calculate the missing angles of triangles. There is a powerpoint presentation to show you how to do this and two worksheets to have a go at.

We have also included another reasoning SATs paper for you to complete – along with the answer sheet.

Topic

To continue our ‘Ancient Egypt’ topic, we have added the ‘Time raider’s activity pack’. This contain lots of fun and interesting activities for you to try – just choose which ones you would like to do!

Good luck, take care and keep learning!

Hi year 6,
Hope you are all doing well. Here's this week's work for you to do. 
There is the 2018 SATs reading paper: reading booklet/answer booklet/mark scheme.
The 2018 arithmetic paper with mark scheme ( keep this as you will need it to mark the other tests when I send them to you).
I've added an Egypt work booklet which has lots of little activities about finding Tutankhamen's tomb. Choose which ones you want to do.

There is an art activity for you to do this week - Texture Treasure Hunt

https://www.thenational.academy/year-6/foundation/texture-treasure-hunt-year-6-wk1-5/#

It’s looking at texture. You need to read the instructions and watch the video to find out what to do. It’s really easy and produces a lovely effect. All you’ll need is some paper and a pencil – simple!

Hope you enjoy all the activities - You must be making so much progress with your arithmetic and reading scores. Keep up the great work!
Take care and stay safe,
Miss Mercer, Mr Richardson, Mr Grochowski

Home Learning w/c 6th April 2020

Hello year 6,

Below is a message from teachers, who are missing you very much, news about our Easter 'competition', links to some fun ideas and some homework if you want to keep your learning going over the Easter period.

 

Easter 'Competition'
Although we're not in school, we'd still like our Easter 'competitions' to go ahead. However, this year they will just be for fun. 

You can create an Easter bonnet, Easter scene or decorate an egg using whatever you have available at home - remember, don't go shopping; stay safe!

You can send us photos of your Easter creations to info@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk

As all photographs will be uploaded to the website, only include yourself in the picture if your parents are happy for you to be shown.  Make sure your name and class are included in the email; your name will not be put on the website. 

Have fun!
 

Hello Year 6...

We hope you are all well and managing to keep your minds and bodies fit and active during your time away from school.  We are missing you all very much so it is brilliant to be able to keep in touch through our school website. We have added some fun Easter activities and interesting websites with great ideas for you to have a go at. Thank you for continuing to complete your work despite not being at school – we are very proud of your hard work and dedication to your learning. All of your teachers hope you have a fantastic Easter and hope to see you all very soon.  

 

P.S. Mr Grochowski says that he was in 6G’s classroom yesterday and it felt so lonely and empty without you. He is missing you all and hopes things get back to normal as soon as possible!

 

Miss Mercer is missing having an audience to sing to. She says it’s not the same singing to an empty classroom. She misses you so much and is looking forward to the day that she can see your cheery faces and hear all about what you’ve been up to!

 

Mr Richardson says that he is missing your energy, ideas, creativity and tik-tok dances! For some reason his son doesn’t find his (obviously hilariously funny) jokes as amusing as you all clearly did so he is spending most of his time laughing at himself – I guess some things never change!

Easter work if you'd like to do some:

Home Learning w/c 30th March 2020

 

Hello Year 6.  Here is your home learning for this week.

Reading:

 

Spellings:

3 lists from Spring and Summer list 1

Maths:

2017 Arithmetic paper

Topic - Egyptians

Using the internet, research the customs and traditions which were used when a Pharaoh died.

1/ You will need to find out about the mummification process which happened beforehand – what was done with the organs?

2/ Research the whole ritual of the funeral e.g.

  • What happened outside the tomb?
  • How was the Pharaoh’s body brought to the site?
  • What happened in the procession with priests?
  • What ceremony was performed on the Pharaoh before he entered the tomb and why?
  • What else went into the tomb with the Pharaoh? Why were these things put with him?
  • Who was there to mourn the Pharaoh’s death?

 

This research will be used in the next Home Learning Challenge so dig deep to find all those facts.
