Learning Challenges 22nd June - 28th June

Weekly Learning Challenges

Feel free to send anything you have done to abrown@annesley.notts.sch.uk

We are changing the way in which we are doing home learning in Year 6 slightly.

The idea is that the home learning will mirror what we are doing in class as much as possible.

There are a few additional challenges on here as well to have a go at too.

 

It would be great to hear what you have been up to and see what you have been working on.

 

Here are some challenges to have a go at this week:

Maths Challenges

 

Have a go at these Maths challenges this week.

Have a go at the work for Summer Term Week 8 which continues to look at algebraic equations before moving onto converting measurements (including miles and kilometres).

As always, let me know if you are struggling with anything.

Click the link to take you to the videos.

I've added the resources for each lesson below too.

Here's another quick daily activity to flex those Maths muscles with.

Here are 3 reasoning questions per day to test your mathematical understanding with.

The answers are included to help you check how you did too, along with a 'mark scheme' to help with any that you may be unsure of.

Push yourself and give it a go!

Rapid Reasoning Week 2

English: Macbeth

We are continuing to look at Shakepeare's Macbeth. What do you think of the play so far?

 

For each lesson, watch the relevant episode of this wonderful Macbeth BBC series, then have a go at the activity or activities linked to the episode. There are also some supporting materials and presentations for each lesson too.

As tempting as it might be, please do not jump ahead next to episode or episodes as this could really mess with the activities. Do not fear - we will definitely watch the entire play eventually over the coming weeks.

 

Below are some general resources for the unit that could prove helpful.

Lesson 4: Role On The Wall (Episode 2: All Hail, Macbeth! Thane of Cawdor!)

Watch Episode 2: All Hail, Macbeth! Thane of Cawdor!

What do we know about Macbeth so far? What do we know about Lady Macbeth so far?

Write key words and phrases in and around the character outlines. Write descriptions of their physical appearance around the outside and descriptions of their personalities on the inside.

All Hail, Macbeth! Thane of Cawdor!

Lesson 5: Conscience Alley (Episode 3: Daggers For Duncan)

Watch Episode 3: Daggers For Duncan. Pause the episode at 3:20.

Should Macbeth kill Duncan? Decide yes or no and write a persuasive argument to convince Macbeth whether to kill Duncan or not. Think of as many reasons as possible to support your argument and try using a range of persuasive devices.

Daggers for King Duncan

Lesson 6: Argument scene (Episode 3: Daggers For Duncan)

Create an additional scene (after the feast but before the walk on the battlements) where Lady Macbeth is arguing with a reluctant Macbeth, trying to convince him to kill Duncan later that night. Think carefully about the conversation and use this comic strip to help plan out your ideas.

Now present your extra scene using playscript conventions. Make sure you include stage direction too!

Lesson 7: Duncan’s Crime Scene (Episode 3: Daggers For Duncan)

Watch Episode 3: Daggers For Duncan.

Imagine that you are a police officer investigating the scene of the Duncan’s murder. Complete the crime report for Duncan’s death. Pay close attention to the details of his death and report them as factually as possible.

Transition

 

Unfortunately, there is not long left until the end of the year and your time as a Year 6!

Because of this, we will be doing an awful lot of work around transition too prepare you as much as possible for your move to secondary school in September.

We appreciate that it will be more difficult to do this from your homes, especially as there will be many discussions around transition that will be difficult to take part in due to our current situation. We will try to support you as much as possible by providing resources, links and as much information as possible in order to help you as much as we can.

 

This week we will begin looking at ourselves and begin to discuss the best sort of attitude to have moving forwards. We will be using the fantastic Be Awesome Go Big resources. Have a go at the first 2 sessions below:

 

Lesson 1: Being Awesome

Lesson 2: Be Awesome Go Big

A quick recap.

Here are 3 problems that you may face. We discussed these this week in class, can you remember the advice we gave you? Make yourself a positivity journal, to remind you how to cope in unfamiliar situations.

And remember, anything you want to ask about is fine- even if we have already covered it. We want to make your transitions as smooth as possible.

 

    

 

 

Science

We are continuing our work on living things and habitats.

Look at the pictures of different animals. Think about their habitats.Make a table like this  to record notes about their possible food sources and any likely threats.

Draw in the animals if you need to.

ART

 

   

 

Painting with scissors –

 Henri Matisse was famous for his paper cut outs (gouaches découpés)

Create an animal picture in the style of Henri Matisse, you can choose any animal you wish.

You will need an A4 piece of paper, a pair of scissors, glue , brightly coloured paper, perhaps from comics or magazines , newspapers. You can cut and tear your paper .

Like Matisse, cut out your design and place it onto the page.

Review and make any changes you want to, then glue down your design.

Music

 

  

 

This is Dame Vera Lynne whose death was in the news on Thursday.

How did she help the people of Britain during the second World War ?

Can you find out some of the songs she sang?

What music do you listen to that matches different moods you are feeling?

Make a list of your different emotions and next to them write the title of a piece of music you would listen to when you are in different moods.

Recipe for a Responsible Citizen

 

Have a go at writing a poem about how to make a responsible citizen. We can think of this poem as a ‘recipe’. Here is an example of a recipe for a responsible citizen.

 

Take one reliable child.

Add a pinch of initiative.

Stir in some kept promises.

Mix in a cup of thinking about your actions.

Spread on some doing things without being asked.

Sprinkle on a bit of admitting your mistakes.

Now you have a responsible citizen!

Underline all the verbs you can find. Think about the tense and the verbs you might use for your recipe. Have a go at writing your own recipe.

Take .......................................................................................................................................................

DT

We throw away ten billion plastic water bottles each year.  What a lot of waste!  Rather than just putting plastic bottles in the bin, get creative and think of alternative uses for them.

 

Potential use – what’s your idea?

Properties utilised – why will it work?

Design adaptation required – what changes will you need to make?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additional Support and Learning - BBC Bitesize and Oak National School Online Classroom

Here are 2 brilliant websites that contain some additional learning resources that are highly recommended. Each one contains a variety of daily lessons, complete with supporting videos and some questions to have a go at.

Take a look, see if you would find it useful and have a go.
