Home Learning Tasks

 

Welcome to the Home Learning Area for Year 6. Below is a list of activities for your children to complete throughout the week, at their own leisure. 

The Home Learning Area will be updated for the start of every Monday and feedback will be provided on the tasks completed by the children (remember to check pupil Hwbmail).

Feel free to send any pictures or videos of the work and I will display them below.

Thank you very much for your co-operation during this time.

Mr Williams.  

Keeping in Touch

 

Happy Easter Year 6! I hope you're all ok and enjoying your Easter eggs. I thought it would be nice to keep our class connected and to see what we have all been up to during Easter. If you would like to send me either a picture or small video of yourself keeping busy, I will then put all of these moments into a video montage to share with you at the end of the week. As you can see, I've been busy with my Easter gifts - Lego star Wars and chocolate - my perfect day! smiley

MyMaths

 

Remember - You can retry the questions as many times as you want to try and improve your score. This is important as it will tell me if you have understood the task.

 

Your tasks for this week are 'Imperial Measures' and 'Units of Length'. They will be available from Monday 13th April until Sunday 19th April. 

 

Make sure you select the 'Lesson' first, this will help you understand the topic, before completing the 'Online Homework' task.

Don't forget there is also a selection of Maths websites on the Year 6 class page - click here to view.

 

Why not try your problem solving skills with the puzzles below.

Remember the Order of Operations

 

 

Puzzle 1                                 Puzzle 2                                      Puzzle 3

 

Literacy: Recount

 

I will leave this task open for another week to give you more time to complete.

 

Recount is our text type for this term (if you can remember!). Write a recount about anything that has happened to you, either recently or something from further in the past, e.g. a favourite holiday, a special celebration, a memorable event.

 

There is a PowerPoint at the bottom of this page that may help you plan and organise your recount.

 

Remember to use the Drafting and Editing process that we use in school, it will be easier for you if you are typing on the computer .

 

 

Giglets

 

Click here for your Giglets task.

 

I have given each of you one book from the list below. Once you have read your books carefully, complete the Higher Order Thinking Skills task and also the Reading Test Questions.

 

Book 1: The Heathfield Hare

Book 2: British Goblins, Welsh Folklore, Fairytales and Legends

 

If you would like me to hear you reading, you could record a short video of yourself reading and share it with me on Hwb. I can then post it on the class page for others to see.

 

 

Topic Work: Matrix Questions

I will leave this task open for another week to give you more time to complete.

 

Q. How do plants produce oxygen and how does this affect the environment?

Q. What might the world look like without plants?

 

These are two of the questions that we asked at the start of the topic. Write a few paragraphs to answer each question. Remember to explain clearly using the correct scientific language.

Here are a few websites to help you get started on your research, there is also a video at the bottom of the page. Don't forget to make use of the Encyclopaedia Britannica on Hwb.
