Week Beginning: 27-4-2020

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.  

 

Class Connectivity

 

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!

20th - 24th April

MyMaths

 

I have set you four tasks this week and they are quite challenging. Complete them in the order below and go as far as you can. If you do not have time to complete them all, or you find them too challenging, then only complete what you can. They will be available from Monday 27th April until Sunday 3rd May. 

 

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

 

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.

 

  1. Introduction to Algebra
  2. Algebraic Thinking
  3. Equations - 1 step
  4. Rules and Formulae

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

Literacy: Persuasive Poster

 

I would like you to create a persuasive poster, advertising your own theme park. For a good persuasive poster:

  • Make it colourful
  • Use exaggeration and superlatives- e.g. 'the BEST place in the world'
  • Use celebrity endorsements 
  • Use join the gang sentences - e.g. everyone's going there
  • Bossy and netting sentences - imperative verbs and use of the word 'You'

 

Have a look at the example below for ideas.

Swansea Advert Example

Topic: Matrix Questions

 

Here are a selection of Matrix questions from last week. Choose one or two from the list below to investigate and answer. Click here to see the questions that were suggested last week. You could research and answer one of those questions if you wish. Remember to include plenty of detailed information and examples to support your work and also include references for your research.   

 

You can choose how to present your work - PowerPoint, Playlist, Word, etc. Don't forget to share your completed work with me.
