Weekly Work (week beginning 23.3.20)
The Learning Continues – Y6
Each week you will find a range of tasks you should try to do (1-4) plus an additional project (5) which you can choose whether or not to do:
1. Reading – this should be for a minimum of half an hour daily for Year 6. Please record in your reading log or on the record given in your pack. Remember to fill out a book review for every book read (see pack and reading section of Year 6 web page). If you complete the books sent home, make use of appropriate reading materials at home or online. All you need to do is register for free and you can search for books which match the colour-banded level you are reading in school: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/
2. Times tables – daily practise up to 12 X 12. Remember to practise out of order and corresponding division facts too, such as: 3 X 4 = 12 so 12 ÷ by 4 = 3.
3. Spelling – you will find the year 3/4 and year 5/6 spelling lists in your pack and online. These can be practised 10 spellings at a time using any of the following methods:
- Look, say, cover, write, check.
- Ask an adult to put them into sentences for you to record.
- Practise spelling them out verbally.
- Repetition: handwriting them three times each – using different colours can be helpful.
4. SATs papers – in your pack and online is a full set of practise tests which you can take as a revision tool. It would benefit you to do these as independently as possible – no more than one a day.
- Reading – 1 hour
- Punctuation and Grammar – 45 minutes
- Arithmetic – 30 minutes
- Reasoning 1 & 2 – 40 minutes each
Mrs Gondova’s Group - Maths – in your pack you will find 12 lessons on ‘Fractions’ – you will find the lesson notes as well as a worksheet to complete in each session. Aim for one lesson a day.
5. Finally, if you complete all of those activities and wish to do some additional learning, you may undertake a project on the theme ‘Healthy Me.’ Use the internet to explore what makes a healthy lifestyle – make notes on both food choices and exercise. You may wish to consider the effect of drugs and alcohol on the body, including smoking. Then use your notes to create a powerpoint/leaflet/poster/animation etc informing the public of how to live a healthy lifestyle. It would be lovely to share these – please feel free to email me anything you create.
