Year 6

Friday 3rd April

 

Maths

LI: I can use line graphs to solve problems

Now that you can read, interpret and draw lines graphs, you can begin to use them to solve problems.

 

Things to really think about when answering the questions today:

  • Read the scales carefully to make sure you are accurate
  • If there are two different lines for different data sets, make sure that you are using the right one!
  • Remember the order of the x and y axis – x goes along the corridor, y goes up the stairs
  • Frequency means how often
  • Data means the numbers in the table that you will plot onto the graphs

 

For the challenges today, I advise that you do two: either green and red or red and purple as there are  not many questions on each.

Literacy

 

LI: I can write a satisfying ending to a story

 

It’s Friday so time to write the resolution and ending for your story.

Once this is done – you have written an adventure story, well done! Now you have all the parts written, it would be great for you to write them up as one cohesive story. You could do this on a computer, in your books or on your own paper at home. Decorate the border of your story to make it appeal to your audience. If you don’t have time today, this could be something that you want to do over the Easter holidays. I can’t wait to see your final stories and presentation sent over on Class Dojo!

 

Topic

 

LI: I can answer a range of questions from a long text

Last Friday, we completed a comprehension based on Our Teachers are Superheros. You looked at chapters 1-3.

Today, we will read chapters 4 – 6 and then answer questions. I would like you all to answer the three star questions so you will need to scroll down the page a bit. The answers are on the following page. If you want to send me the answers to questions 7-9 (as there are many answers) feel free, or you could get a family member to mark them for you.

Need more work?

As our topic is inventions, here are a range of possible activities that you could complete. If you do, let me see your efforts of Class Dojo!

Thursday 2nd April

 

Maths

LI: I can draw a line graph

Look at the challenge below. They are colour coded as normal and you can choose one to do today.

 

Drawing a graph is all about accuracy so be sure to use a ruler (or a straight-edged item) and plot on the marks with accuracy. Once they are all plotted, a line will need to be drawn. Make sure your:

  • axes have a label
  • scales go up in equal amounts
  • graph has a title.

Literacy

 

LI: I can bring a story to a crescendo

 

Today, we are ready to write our story complication. See the document below to find all the details – remember that it needs to flow well from your build up.

Topic

 

LI: I can consider the impact of Jesus’ sacrifice on Christians today

 

This week in RE we have considered Jesus as the messiah and the sacrifices he made. We have then researched Christians who also sacrificed themselves for others.

 

What difference does Jesus’ sacrifice make to Christian belief?

Picture 1

Look at Resource 6 to see how some young Christians feel.

Then. using at least one sentence stem from each of the boxes, write an answer in your book to the question:

What difference does Jesus’ sacrifice make to Christians?

Wednesday 1st April

 

Maths

 

Our new maths topic is statistics.

 

Here is what we will cover over the next few weeks.

Picture 1

LI: I can read and interpret line graphs

 

Line graphs are used to show continuous data.

The key to interpreting them is to read the scales really carefully.

Look at these two graphs and have a think about what is the same and what is different.

Picture 1

They both show the temperature from 9am to 10:30am.

They both show the same temperatures at the same times.

They both have the same scale BUT the first graph has more written in more intervals

 

Line graphs can also show two sets of data at the same time like the graph below.

Think about the following:

  1. At what times of day was the same amount of water consumed on Monday and Tuesday?
  2. Was more water consumed at 2pm on Monday or Tuesday. By how much?
Picture 1

Answers:

  1. Around 9:40am, 1pm, around 3:20 pm and 6pm
  2. More water was consumed on Monday. It was 250ml more.

 

 

Here are your tasks. Remember to have a go at either green and red OR red and purple.

Challenge

 

If you have finished and want an extra challenge, here is the data for the 2012 Olympic medal winners. (Remember – this is only to do once you have finished your tasks!)

 

How old were you when this Olympics was held?

 

This data does not suit a line graph as it is discrete (not continuous). You may wish to look up what this means!

 

This data would be more suited to a bar chart. I would like you to use this data to draw a bar chart in your books. All the data needs to be represented and it needs to be extremely clear. This is a hard challenge so good luck and please do share your results on Class Dojo!

Literacy

 

LI: I can increase tension in a narrative including descriptive dialogue

 

Yesterday you wrote the introduction to the story. Today is your build-up – see the document below. Remember that literacy should take around 45 minutes. That is the amount of detail that you are expected to put into the work – a rushed story will not be a great read!

Topic

LI: I can devise a two-player game

 

Today is PE day!

I would like to set you a challenge to create two-player game using household items. You have to be able to play this game inside your house or garden. Get imaginative with the equipment that you use!

I would suggest trying out the game with someone in your house and adapting the rules to make it more fun or more/less challenging.

After this, you need to record the following in your book

  • Game title
  • Equipment
  • Rules
  • Any necessary diagrams

Send them across in Class Dojo – I will definitely be interested to see if any of your games can amuse me during the Easter holidays and I could share any excellent examples for your friends to have a go as well J

Tuesday 31st March

 

Maths

 

LI: I can assess my understanding of angles

Today would be assessment day in class on our understanding of angles. I therefore have two assessments for you to complete. You could either print these off and put them at the back of your books, or record them in your workbooks if you don’t have access to a printer.

 

The first test is our hot task and the answers are included after. Please send you scores out of 20 to me on Class Dojo.

The next test is to really get your understanding of calculating angles. You will not need a protractor. You need to complete up to Q18, past that, some of the questions are based on learning that we have not covered yet. The answers are at the end of the document.

Literacy

 

LI: I can write a sensory description to introduce a story

 

Well done for your hot writes yesterday. Over the next literacy lessons, we will focus on revisiting texts that we have studied in Year 6.

 

First up à descriptions

 

Remember in September, we used Bombs and Blackberries to write some wonderful descriptive texts. This week, we will write a descriptive story using last year’s Natural Disasters topic. All the rest of the information is in the document below.

Topic

 

LI: I can research an example of sacrifice

 

Jesus is often called the ‘Lamb of the Cross’. Why is this?

Picture 1

A lamb is often used for sacrificing – to show devotion to God. Jesus could be compared to the lamb as he sacrificed himself for others.

Sacrifice doesn’t just have to mean death.

 

What other things could you sacrifice?

Picture 1

Time to help others, food to a food bank or toys to charity are all forms of sacrifice.

Is there something that you would not be willing to sacrifice?

 

There are many Christians who have sacrificed themselves for others: Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Corrie Ten Boom, Gladys Aylward and Desmond Tutu.

Choose one of these influential figures and research to find the following;

  • A few facts about who they were
  • What message they sought to spread?
  • Why it was difficult for them to carry out their work?
  • What did they sacrifice?
  • Why could we admire this person?

 

I look forward to seeing the results of your research!

Monday 30th March

 

Maths

 

LI: Identify nets of 3D shapes

Begin with this game. For each set of clues, write down the 3D shape in your book. Maybe you could challenge yourself against others in your house and see who gets the most correct? The answers are on the final slide.

If we know the properties of key 3D shapes, we can identify them from their nets. Remember that a net is a set of 2D shapes which can be folded to make a 3D shape.

 

I would now like you to have a go at making a net from scratch. You just need a piece of paper (the thicker the better), anything will do - the cover of a magazine would be a perfect thickness. Using a ruler and measuring accurately, create the cuboid net below and the fold it into a 3D shape. Can’t wait to see if you have completed this challenge on Dojo!

Picture 1

Below are your tasks. It’s quite tricky to find questions for this subject without you needing too many resources so each of the tasks are shorter. I therefore suggest that you do green, red and purple (I would mark each challenge after you have completed it). Then there’s a fun challenge for you to have a go at too.

Literacy

 

LI: I can hot write an explanation text

 

Last week, you created your own Rube Goldburgh machines and practiced writing explanation texts.

Today is the time to combine the two by hot writing an explanation text about your on machine.

 

You will need to include:

  • Title
  • Introduction
  • Bullet point list
  • Explanation
  • Conclusion
  •  

Below, I have included the model text, assessment grids and spelling mats to support you. Make this an excellent piece of writing – maybe you would want the calm music like we would in class to get you into the zone?

Topic

 

LI: I can connect the prophecy of Isiah to Jesus’ life

What is a prophecy?

Picture 1

A prophecy is a message that a prophet claims has been communicated to them by a god.

 

Star Wars, The Lego Movie and Lion King all contain prophecies.

 

Before Jesus was born, the Jewish people were oppressed by a number of foreign rulers. At this time, the Romans were ruling tyrannically. The Jewish people were waiting for the prophecy of a Messiah to release them from Roman Rule.

 

Isiah was one person who predicted the Messiah. Read the text below (turn to resource 5). Like a lot of Bible stories, it is tricky to understand but remember that you don’t need to know the meaning of every line, instead, re-read carefully to get a general understanding.

In your books, draw the outline of a man. Inside the man, write all the things that Isiah predicted that the messiah would do.

 

Now, highlight any of the things that we know that Jesus did actually do.

 

Finally, answer the question – Does Isiah’s prophecy convince you that Jesus was the messiah?
