Friday 22nd May

Good morning Y6. I hope you are all well and looking forward to the half term break. Everyone in school is really looking forward to seeing some of you soon! Don't forget to continue with your daily exercise and your half an hour of reading.

English

Today, I would like you to reflect on the lockdown period and the time you have been having at home in order to complete a piece of writing that reflects your feelings. I would like you to:-

  1. Write about some of the things you have perhaps enjoyed about lockdown.
  2. Write about who you have spent the lockdown period with.
  3. Write about the tough aspects of lockdown.
  4. Write about how your learning has been different.
  5. Write about what you are looking forward to most when all of lockdown is over.

I want you to think of this piece of writing as becoming a part of your history and ensuring that it is a very accurate record of how life has been for you. Imagine completing your writing, putting it in a time capsule and opening it 25 years later.

Geography

The coastline is constantly changing due to erosion – the wearing away of rocks. There are four types of erosion but the most important is hydraulic erosion. This is caused by the sheer power of the waves as they smash against the cliffs of the coastline. These changes normally happen over thousands  of years but sometimes, when the rock is soft, we can see coastal erosion in action. Watch the videos below and make your own notes.

Good morning year 6! Well done on all the Flotsam writing last week, lots of you really captured the reader and I enjoyed reading your work. Today I would like you to…

Map of the Island

Having read to the end of Chapter 5 of Kensuke's Kingdom, you should now have a good idea of what the island is like. Create your own map of the island which should show the key places mentioned in the story e.g. where would the line that divides the island be, the orang utan area etc. Please illustrate with relevant images e.g spear fishing. Include some annotations of the different areas of the island. Be as creative as you wish and upload your finished map to seesaw.

Art - exploring Hokusai

    • Why do you think Kensuke is on the island?
    • Do you think Kensuke is keeping Michael prisoner on the island? Explain your answer as fully as you can, using evidence from the text to support your opinion.

 

Topic

Waves and Tides

Complete the sentences using the words in the box. Each word is only used once.

 

Extension: Tsunami is the name given to a series of waves of massive and destructive proportions. They are sometimes known as tidal waves but this is misleading as they are nothing to do with the tides! In December 2004 a tsunami in the Indian Ocean caused millions of pounds of damage to coastal regions and many deaths, including tourists. It is believed that there was a huge global tsunami (nearly a mile high) as a result of the huge asteroid that hit the earth over 65 million years ago and this contributed to the extinction of the dinosaurs.

TASK

Create a fact file for children aged 10 – 11 about tsunami. Include text and images to explain how they are formed and what damage they can cause. Where is the world do they occur and why in these regions and not others. You may also want to find out more about how scientists are trying to predict tsunami so that people who live near the coast have time to evacuate to higher ground.

  • Ten A Day and Problems of the Day

English

Yesterday, Mrs Bennett asked you to have another look at the story of Flotsam and you were given some guidance on writing your story plan and some information about the story. It's important to remember that although this is a picture book, it's quite a sophisticated story. The link to the story is...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MTKWnxzqvM

Today, I want you to use your plan and the information you have to tell the story from the perspective of the boy. When you write in the first person, you put yourself inside the writing by describing how you felt and what you were doing. Use 'I.' Remember to use the first person consistently, throughout the whole story. You should also remember to:-

Show excellent knowledge and understanding of punctuation.

Write in paragraphs.

Use the previous work on Flotsam (description of image, word collection and plan from yesterday) to support your writing.

Be creative with your use of language and construct a range of different types of sentences (e.g. longer for description, short for impact).

Hook the reader, can you use a rhetorical question?

Please can you make sure that you either write in pen (blue or black) or word process your work. Please don't use pencil as this is more difficult to read.

We look forward to reading some very polished writing!

 

 

Good morning. Here is your home learning for 6th May

Maths

Literacy

Review Flotsam by watching the video of the story again, I suggest you put the sound on mute so you can really concentrate on the images of the story.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MTKWnxzqvM

In preparation for writing the story from the perspective of the boy, please spend time today to plot the story outline onto a story mountain and start to add words and phrases. You will know from when we have done a big piece of writing like this in class that the time you spend planning is really important so don't be tempted to miss it out or rush it.

 

  • Opening – introduce the setting (seaside) and the main character – you the boy. Think about what you need to say about yourself. Is it more important to tell the reader your name, age and what you look like or to give information which tells us about your character? E.g. What do you love spending days at the seaside doing?
  • Build up – show/tell more about the main character (you, the boy) and what is happening E.g. you are searching the shoreline for creatures to examine under your magnifying glass or microscope.
  • Climax – what happens when the wave knocks you over? What do you find? Describe the camera – does it look modern?. What do you do with the camera? How do you get to see the photos?*
  • Resolution – What can you see in the photos? Describe some of the amazing sea creatures but also the photos of other children. What do you see when you look with the magnifying glass and microscope? Why do the photos go from colour to black and white as you increase the magnification?** What do you think is happening as you increase the magnification?
  • Ending – what do you decide to do with the camera? Before you throw it back into the sea, what do you do?

 

*This is an old camera – pre digital-  that has a film inside which has to be developed at a specialist shop so that the images can be viewed.

** The x25, x50 etc next to the photos indicate how many times the image has been magnified, so the final image x75 is the highest magnification

Topic

Review the slides and then watch the two videos on You Tube. Can you make your own video to show how tides are produced? Be as creative as you like but make sure that your explanation is clear to the viewer.

 

If you prefer (or don’t have the technology needed to make a video) you can produce a written piece of work. It may be hand written or word processed and it could include diagrams.

2. Art - Creating Fish collages.

3. Music - Continuing with the series we started last week on BBC bitesize.

4. Ensure you exercise.

5. Post a photo of you in your ‘home school’ on Seesaw.

English

Last week, you wrote a description for one of the images in Flotsam. I wanted to share the excellent piece Tallulah wrote.

 

"The soft waves crept onto the golden sand, the white horses nearly reaching my toes. Seagulls chirping and children laughing. I sank my fingers into the hot yellow sand and all my troubles were soothed away. The beaming sun shone overhead in the sapphire blue sky. Shade was hard to find as it was the hottest day of the year. The cool zephyr shook the sails in the boat at the dock.

 

Across the sand there was a row of markets and shops selling ice cream, postcards and buckets and spades. It wasn't a busy day but the chatter from nearby cafes, the delighted screams of children paddling in the water and music playing faintly on the breeze made it seem like I was surrounded by a happy bustle.

 

Sandcastles popping up in the sand like weeds, dads dozing under sun hats, their noses turning red; and mums chasing wet children with brightly coloured beach towels. Soon it would be time to go home, happy, tired and hungry for tea.

 

I'm sure you'll agree that this writing is wonderful!

 

This week, I would like you to watch the video of Flotsam at... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MTKWnxzqvM

Watch it through the first time without pausing but make sure you are observing the images carefully and following the story. Play the clip a second time and pause on each of the images. Use the template attached below to record vocabulary to describe what you see. This vocabulary can then support you next week when you tell the story of Flotsam from the boy's perspective. It would be great to have a thesaurus to hand. If you don't have one, there are lots free on line. Please upload to Seesaw.

 

Art

Today I would like you to create a fish collage from materials you have in your homes. This could be from old magazines, newspapers, wrapping paper, coloured card, leaves from the garden, nuts and bolts etc It can basically be from anything but I don't want you to buy things! I have put some ideas on the attached PDF below to inspire some lovely work.

The first thing you will need to do is decide on your type of fish and make a line drawing for you to add your collage materials to. If you were using something like nuts, bolts and other metal objects, you wouldn't need to glue these. You could just arrange in your fish shape and photograph. This activity is likely to take some time. Please don't rush this work, I am looking for quality. Please make upload your finished work to Seesaw.

I am also looking forward to talking to you on the telephone and answering any questions you may have when I make my calls between 10am and 11am.
