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.
To keep our class connected and to see what we all have been doing during these unprecedented times, I would like you to send me either a picture or small video of something you have been up to. This could include a walk, exercise routines, painting, etc - anything you have been up to and want to share. I will then put all of these moments into a video montage to share with you at the end of each week.
These are the photos and videos I have received this week. Also, if you haven't seen the LPS Staff video then click here!
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 'Order of Operations' and 'Addition and Subtraction Problems'. They will be available from Monday 20th April until Sunday 26th April.
Make sure you select the 'Lesson' first, this will help you understand the topic, before completing the 'Online Homework' task.

Our text type for this term will be Persuasion. There are two tasks for you to complete - you will find them in the PowerPoint below. Read the slides carefully as they will give you tips for completing the tasks. There is also a "Persuasive Phrases" sheet to help you complete the tasks.
Remember to read over your tasks (Draft and Edit) before you share them with me.
Our new topic 'Scream Machine', is based around a Theme Park. We are going to explore the science behind roller coasters (forces) and also create posters and leaflets to advertise (persuasion) a theme park.
Task 1: I would like you to use the Question matrix below to e-mail me a few questions that you would like to research during this topic. Your questions will inform my planning and what your work will focus on during this term. I have also given you a few 'key words' that may help you with your questions.
air-resistance buoyancy centripetal force engineer
exert force gravity pulley
mechanism motor oscillate pendulum
Task 2: Write definitions for each of the 'key words'.

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: Gelert's Grave
Book 2: The Legend of Cantre'r Gwaelod
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.
Click here for your spelling words.
Your spelling words are available for you to learn - a family member could test you on Friday.
You could also complete the activities from Friday's Spelling lesson - sentences, definitions and 'words within words'. Don't forget to share your work with me.
