8/6/20 to 12/6/20 - Week 2

Friday 12.6.20

6S Please remember to check your email for your zoom link!

6T - our Zooms are at 1.45pm (Hedgehogs) and 2.15pm (Badgers) 

 

Feedback from tasks completed this week:

The Dickens comprehension was done REALLY well.

Good job everyone! There was lots more quoting and your responses were very mature and impressive. 

Just look at this bit again though:

I was dreadfully frightened, and so giddy that I clung to him with both hands, and said, “If you would kindly please to let me keep upright, sir, perhaps I shouldn’t be sick, and perhaps I could attend more.” 

The question asked for a synonym for the word ‘attend’. It means ‘listen’ or ‘pay attention’. Do you see? A few people suggested other meanings. 

Your report comments were SUPER!!!! Well done. We smiled a lot reading about the carol service, panto and your other memories๐Ÿ˜€

 

Lesson 1: Reading

This morning is the final of BBC 500 Words. 

I want you to all tune in to the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show to find out the winner! (or listen to it on catch up)

Once they announce the winning stories, then you need to read them! 

We will discuss what you thought of them next week.

Here’s a link to the final 25 in the 10-13 age category. I obviously did a shortlist which you have already voted on, but also have a read through some other stories (pick ones where you like the title!) and see what you think! 

And you MUST read Remi’s story! (his is in the 5-9 age category)

Lesson 2: Maths

Today we are just doing My Maths. 

You all have several tasks set. 

Please spend about an hour getting through as many of them as you can. 

If you have lots then DO NOT feel you have to do them all! 

After today we will clear off all tasks that have not been completed so that we can set new tasks next week. 

 

Afternoon:

We are not doing a Quiz of the Week this week, because we will be back in school next week and we are going to do it all together. 

Instead, we are doing some DT and/or Art (you can choose which).

 

DT: Extreme Designs

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zk4y382

This is a Year 7 lesson but we think that you will like it! 

There is some information to read, a couple of videos to watch and then, if you wish, an activity. 

 

Art: Still Life

This is a Y7 lesson with Mr Di Salvo, who is a super art teacher! 

Don’t do the quiz at the beginning as it refers to the previous lesson, which you have not done. There is a quiz at the end though, which you should do. 

You’ll need paper and a pencil for this lesson.

Thursday 11.6.20

 

Lesson 1: Maths

Warm up:

It’s a blast from the past!!!!! 

You are going to rewind your brains a whole year and do some non-verbal reasoning! 

We teachers love NVR and it is superb brain-training. 

You will also, almost certainly, do some sort of cognitive ability testing when you start secondary school and NVR will appear.

So it’s good to have a bit of a practice. 

The task is below and the answers are too. 

Spend a fair bit of time on this (the main task won’t take long). 

Main task:

Follow this link, click on Summer Term Week 7 (8 June), watch the video for Lesson 4 (Solve one-step equations) and then do the activity attached below (in your book or on paper). The answers are on a separate document - please  mark yourself and check you understand any errors:

Lesson 2: RE

Please watch this video about the 5Ks of Sikhism.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zcn34wx

Then complete the document attached below. 

 

Afternoon:

 

Powerful Knowledge - Reformers

Today we are going to look at historical and modern figures who looked around at what they saw in the world, did not like it, and tried to engineer change.

There are many, MANY such figures in history. 

Please do not think that because one of them is not mentioned here that they are not important.

We have just picked a few, who made changes in different areas. 

Read the slides and then do the quiz. 

You don’t need to formally record your responses but as always, store this information in your brain

Wednesday 10.6.20

Please note: today Mrs Storey is in school so PLEASE do not think she is ignoring you if you send a message or work and she doesn’t reply quickly! She will respond after 3.30pm.

 

Lesson 1: Maths

Warm up:

See the sheet below of mixed arithmetic questions. 

The answers are at the end - please self-mark. 

Main task:

Follow this link, click on Summer Term Week 7 (8 June), watch the video for Lesson 3 (Substitution) and then do the activity attached below (in your book or on paper). 

The answers are on a separate document - please mark yourself and check you understand any errors:

Lesson 2: Writing

Today you will be doing something very personal and hopefully, creative! 

At this time of year, Mrs Storey and Mrs Thompson get to do a wonderful job - write your reports!

The best part of report-writing is the personal comment at the end. 

Now, Mrs Storey and Mrs Thompson are getting a bit old and forgetful and we may not remember every single brilliant, funny and clever thing that you have done all year, and so we need reminding. 

Therefore, today you are going to write your OWN report comments*. 

An example is attached. 

This is not long writing - the example is about 250 words - but you need to make every word count as it is about YOU! 

This good practice for writing a CV, which you will definitely have to do at some point in the future.  

Please type this if you can, and share it with your teacher. If you can’t, hand-write it. 

 

*NB (you should definitely know what this means now…..๐Ÿ˜‚) 

We will, of course, be writing the actual report comments ourselves! 

But it is good for us to see what your memories are, and what you are proud of. 

 

Afternoon:

Powerful Knowledge: Science

Today we are recapping one physics and one biology topic.

There are 2 links in the slides for you to click on for more information!

Please see the attached slides and quiz. 

You don't need to send us your responses but as always, you do need to put this knowledge in your brain and make sure it stays there. 

Tuesday 9.6.20

 

Please note: again, Mrs Thompson is in school again today so PLEASE do not think she is ignoring you if you send a message or work and she doesn’t reply quickly! She will respond after 3.30pm. 

 

Lesson 1: Maths

Warm up:

See the sheet below of mixed problems. 

We will give you the answers tomorrow so keep your responses handy! 

You don’t need to send us your answers. 

Main task:

Follow this link, click on Summer Term Week 6 (8 June), watch the video for Lesson 2 (Forming Expressions) and then do the activity attached below (in your book or on paper).

Lesson 2: Reading

Continuing on our Powerful Knowledge theme, today we are reading the first chapter of another classic text, which Mrs Thompson believes is this author’s best work (it is certainly her favourite): Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. 

 

This is not an easy text to read and we know that, so the questions are not too hard.

The gist (if you don’t know what that means, look it up!) of this chapter is that our hero, a young orphan named Pip, is wandering around a graveyard when a man approaches him. The man has chains on his ankles and has clearly escaped from prison. He asks Pip to return the next morning and bring food and a file (so that he can break the chains). 

 

The chapter 1 text and comprehension questions are below.

On the text there is a link to an audio version if you would prefer to listen to it. 

You can type or hand-write your work. 

The answers are at the end.

You don’t need to share your responses with us but please do check them against the answers. 

 

Afternoon:

Powerful Knowledge - World Religions

Please see the attached slides and quiz. 

You don't need to send us your responses but you do need to put this knowledge in your brain and make sure it stays there!

Important note from Mrs Thompson: I am in school today and tomorrow with the Y6 key worker children, so please don’t worry if I don’t respond to any communications immediately! I promise I will reply to you as soon as I can.
