Forres Primary School

Over the summer we will be updating to a new website with updated content. Please be patient during this time as much of our content will be moved and changed
Coronavirus Home Learning

Year 6

Week beginning 15.03.2021

The work detailed here is for children to access at home if they are not attending school due to self-isolating. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Miss Sharman. 

 

Reading

Using your MyOn log in or texts that you have access to at home, spend at least 20 minutes a day reading. If you come across any vocabulary that you do not understand, make a note of this and use a dictionary to identify the meaning of this. Can you then use this vocabulary in a sentence of your own? 

 

Maths

This week in Maths we are exploring angles as well as beginning to look at coordinates. 

Here are some links to the Oak National Academy that will go through the teaching steps required. You should aim to complete at least 1 or 2 lessons a day.

English

This week in English we are continuing to explore the picture book 'Tuesday' by David Weisner. 

 

Here is a link to the book on youtube.

Day 1- to write with purpose- letter (plan)

 

Retell the story to someone at home.

You are going to write a letter as a character in the story to another family member. You may chose to write as a frog from the text or as a human. 

Today you will think about the structure of your writing. 

  • Who are you?
  • Who are you writing to?
  • What is the purpose of your letter?
  • What will you need to include?

Plan your letter and be ready to write this on Tuesday.

 

Day 2- to write with purpose- letter

Reread your plan from yesterday and remind yourself of the task. 

Here is an example paragraph. 

 

Dear Aunty Lily 

 

Ribbit! How are you? How is life in the swamp? I bet it has all changed since I was a young tadpole? How is Uncle Greeny? Still croaking to all hours and disturbing the neighbours.

 

The most amazing thing happened last Tuesday. Did you read about it on the frognet? There’s so much fake news about, you need to be careful what you read these days. Anyway, ribbit, this is true. Not like that President Donald Toad - you can't believe a word that frog says! 

Back to the story ( I am terrible - I always get diverted)

 

Now write your letter. 

 

Day 3- to understand text (characters)

Today we are going to think about the characters (mainly the animals) in the text. We are going to consider what they would be thinking/saying during this text. 

Write speech bubbles/ thought bubbles that detail their point of view.

 

 Frog- “Look at those frogs – how are they able to do that? I want to escape this slimy, smelly swamp” 

 

Day 4- to write with purpose- narrative (planning phase)

Today we are going to think about the final page of the book. This is where we see what happens on the following Tuesday. The pigs begin their adventure. 

What do you think happens?

 

Today you are going to produce a wordless comic strip that tells the events of the following week. Similarly to the book, you will need to ensure your images contain enough detail to tell the story even in the absence of text.

 

Day 5- to write with purpose- narrative.

To conclude our learning and use of Tuesday, we are going to write our own version. This will be based on the comic strip we produced yesterday. You are going to write the next adventure (the Pigs). 

Consider all of the features that you will need to include to be successful here. 

 

 

Other curriculum sessions

This week we will be resuming a normal routine with our afternoon sessions and covering a broad and balanced curriculum. 

 

PSHE

Today we are going to be thinking about Human Rights. We are going to begin by looking at the human rights we all have before focusing in on the rights of a child over the next couple of weeks.

P.E.

In P.E we are thinking about attacking and defending. We will be exploring the movements of an attacker and a defender before moving on to set up some interception drills. You could explore this at home by watching attackers and defenders in your favourite sport or you could practise intercepting at home with the use of family members. 

 

Music

In Music we are thinking about the tempo of songs and mimicing this. 

Listen to Carole King- You've got a friend.

  • What do you think about this song?
  • What do you like?
  • What do you dislike? 
  • What message do the lyrics give?
  • How does this song make you feel?

Now have a go at clapping, tapping or stomping the beat to this song. 

 

Science

Today we are going to begin thinking about our new topic of 'Electricity'. Imagine there is a powercut at home. Detail how this would impact your daily routine. This will help us to consider the importance of Electricity in our day to day lives. 

 

For example- wake up late as the alarm on my phone did not go off (due to my phone not being able to charge).
