Weekly Learning Challenges
Feel free to send anything you have done to email@example.com
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:
Have a go at these Maths challenges this week.
Have a go at the work for Summer Term Week 9 which looks at area and volume (including area of triangles and quadrilaterals).
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!
We are continuing to look at Shakepeare's Macbeth. What do you think of the play so far?
It's really starting to get gruesome now!
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 8: Who is responsible for Duncan’s Death? (Episode 3: Daggers For Duncan)
Look at the quote for each character. What does it tell us about their involvement in
Duncan’s death? Can you identify: Why they are guilty of causing Duncan’s death? What
were their motives in killing Duncan? What defense do they have against these accusations?
Once you have considered all of the suspects, write a conclusion explaining who you think is
the most responsible for the death of King Duncan. Make sure that you justify your choice
and explain why you think this in as much detail as possible.
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 are continuing to use the Be Awesome Go Big resources. Have a go at the next few sessions:
We have been looking at some common worries that children have about moving to senior school. This week we have talked about meeting new people and making new friends. The answer is SMILE, if you look friendly people will want to be your friend. Be yourself and be the person that starts those first conversations.
Remember , everyone is nervous...it is a new experience for you all.
