YEAR 6

The year 6 team continue to send you our thoughts and best wishes and we hope you and your families are keeping well. The reason there is no ‘week 8’ learning is due to half term. This might be a week where you want to spend focusing on your own interests or of course, we have provided you with lots of other websites to use which you can find on the Roxeth website.

WEEK 7 Topic

This week should have been venture week whereby some us travelled to France or some of us stayed at school to carry out activities. It is sad that we are unable to make these memories together, however you will have ample opportunity for venture weeks at your new secondary schools.

 

Monday

  • Create a persuasive text in order to encourage tourists to visit France. There is a writing frame on purple mash which you can use or you can use your own material. When I visited France as a child with my school, I created an A4 file project that included coins, pictures and information of famous landmarks, drawings, French phrases, French artists and many more. 

Tuesday

  • Making French crepes (pancakes)

If, like me, you or your parents/guardians have searched for flour and no luck, then this is the recipe for you (I’m going to try and make these along with you so watch this space)!

Ingredients

4 large eggs

2 bananas

Method

  1. Combine the eggs and bananas until really smooth

  2. Heat a pan over a medium heat and lightly place in some oil

  3. Pour 1/3 of the batter into the pan in a circular motion and swirl to evenly coat the pan

  4. Place the pan back on the heat and cook until the centre of the crepe is almost dry and the edges are lightly browned.

  5. Now for the fun part- flip the crepe and cook for an additional 15 seconds.

  6. Slide the crepe from the pan on to a plate and serve with your desired toppings. Experiment with different flavour toppings, you might be surprised

 Wednesday

  • Reading comprehension – D Day.

This incorporates our WW2 learning and France. Complete pages 10-14. Remember you do not need to print the learning- complete the answers in the exercise provided or your own writing material. You could also include this learning into your persuasive text.

Thursday

  • Using empty egg boxes, be as creative as you can in order to design a creation. You may think that this sounds like a task for younger children, but it is all about tapping into your imagination and being creative. You could design your own animals (thinking of different adaptations from science), mini furniture, a city, the Eiffel tower etc. There are no limitations. Use every day items from your home e.g. cotton buds, old tea bags.

 

 Friday

  • This will be an on-going task. Step 1) You will need an old potato and two tooth picks. Place a toothpick into either side of the potato. On the old potato it will look as though it has ‘eyes’, which is where the roots will come out of, these need to be facing the water. Balance the potato over the top of the glass (a glass is best as it will magnify the roots for you to see clearly). Take a close look at the roots- what do you notice?Look at my example below that I carried out at home:

Step 2) Once your potato’s roots have grown, you can plant the potato. Put the potato into a pot with a couple of inches of soil covering the potato. Once it flowers, continue to add a few inches of soil and continue this process until the soil reaches the top of your plant pot.

WEEK 9 Maths (after half term)

You must be using Times Table Rockstars daily.

Keep working through your CGP Maths books in order of pages that are not yet completed.

WEEK 9 Topic (after half term)

Monday

  • Purple mash – complete the two activities

  1. ‘labelling the continents in the world’

  2.  ‘labelling the oceans in the world.’

Continents have not, however, always looked as they do now. Research the continental drift theory set forth by Alfred Wegener in 1912.

Question- how are similar animals, plant fossils and rock formations on different continents evidence that continents have shifted position?

You may present this information as a poster, leaflet, newspaper article, a model or any other creative way.

Tuesday

  • Study the physical and human features of France for example - climate, weather, fauna (animals), population, settlement types (villages, towns, cities), mountains etc. What are the similarities and differences between the North and South of France?

Now you will need to research the Sumatra rainforest in Indonesia and compare the similarities and differences with the physical and human features in France.

Wednesday

Find 10 other ways our environment has changed (both pros and cons) since we have gone into lock down.

Thursday

Complete the sea levels worksheet- page 2. It asks you to use an atlas but if you do not have one, you can use google maps to support your learning. You will also need to answer the questions on the global warming fact and discussion cards.

Friday

  • Create a French famous landmark using recyclable items that you can find in your home e.g. straws, foil, cans, plastic bottles, toothpicks (although you may not want to use used ones!), packaging etc If you are using paint, try painting with an old toothbrush or cotton bud. Please send photos of your model to the school email.
