Summer Term 2 Week 6: Home Learning

Monday 6th July 2020

Maths (approx. 1hr 30mins)

  • Today you have been given a choice of three different levels of activities.  The Year 2 document focuses on using the four operations with length; the Year 4 document focuses on estimating money and the Year 6 work is based around finding the area of parallelograms.  Decide where your starting point should be or if you struggle to choose, let us know and we can help. :)
  • Use the links below to help with each level:

English (approx. 1hr 30mins)

  • Read up to chapter 20 of ‘Holes’
  • During the story, the warden has used her ‘special nail polish’ on Mr Sir, which caused him quite a bit of discomfort!
  • Your first task is to think about the way the warden punished Mr Sir and think about what creative tools you might use to ‘punish’ members of your ‘Holiday Camp’ if you were a warden.
  • The punishments are not supposed to be nice, of course, but they are not supposed to be fatal!
  • Today, you need to come up with the idea for your ‘tool’, design it and make notes about its features using the template and example to help you.
  • It doesn’t have to be a tool in the traditional sense; feel free to be as creative as you like!
  • Tomorrow, you will be writing a catalogue page for the ‘AAAAH-gos’ catalogue - a catalogue that wardens use to choose products for ‘inmate lessons’.
    • Remember, the tools are not supposed to be fatal - we don’t want to attract too much attention from the authorities!

Afternoon session

  • Online learning (45mins) - Nessy, Read Theory, Reading Eggs, TTRockstars…
  • PSHCE: This lesson is all about ‘Dare to take risks’. Look through the PowerPoint and then have a go at the activity

Maths (approx. 1hr 30mins)

  • Today you have been given a choice of three different levels of activities.  The Year 2 document focuses on comparing mass; the Year 4 document focuses on solving problems with money and the Year 6 work is based around finding the volume of cuboids.  Decide where your starting point should be or if you struggle to choose, let us know and we can help. :)

Summer Term 2 Week 7: Home Learning

 

Well- here we are.  Your final week of Year 6.  It’s such a shame that your last week at Dalton School is ending this way, as it is definitely NOT what we would have planned or wished for you.  However, Mr Richardson is in the process of figuring out a way to invite each class back in, most likely in September (when classes of 30 can meet again).  At least this way, we’ll be able to have a catch up and a better ‘good-bye’ than this!  

 

The final week of your ‘Home Learning’ will run a little bit differently to what it has done before.  This week, we will not set your week out in days.  Instead, we will provide you with some options for work that you can pick and choose from and dip in and out of to your liking! 

 

Below is a list of suggestions and activities that you might want to do this week:

  • Maths work
  • Complete reading ‘Holes’
  • A project related to ‘Holes’
  • Design your own theme park project
  • Online learning activities
  • Write an email to someone at school and we can pass it on for you!
  • Write down your favourite memories of Dalton School and send them to us.

 

Below are the resources required for some of the activities. :)

Maths Resources

‘Holes’:

Please click on the link below and finish the book, if you can.  It’s a fabulous book and very clever.  We also highly recommend watching the film at some point because it’s great! :)

'Holes' by Louis Sachar 

‘Holes’ projects:

1.  Create a guidebook for new "campers" at Camp Green Lake.  Your book should include rules of the camp and advice from experienced campers.

 

2.  Create an original book cover for Holes.  Include artwork for the front and back, a summary for the inside front flap, and information about the author on the inside back flap.  Make sure your book cover is original, different from the actual cover, which can be seen online.

 

3.  Research another famous outlaw from history.  Present your findings in a written report or on a poster board.  Be sure to include biographical information, crimes committed, and what you find most interesting about the outlaw. 

          Jesse James

          John Wesley Hardin

          Sam Bass

          Billy the Kid

 

4.  Choose any one of the characters in Holes.  Write ten journal entries that he or she might have written about experiences that took place during the book.

 

5.  Write an epilogue that takes place 20 years after the end of the existing story.  Explain briefly what each character is doing at this point in time - inmates and staff of Camp Green Lake.  Be creative about how you reveal this information.

 

6.  Create a board game based on information from the novel.

 

7. Research the author, Louis Sachar.  Include biographical information, other books he's written, and comments he's made about Holes.  Would you read another book by Sachar?  Why or why not?

 

8.  Choose an important or dramatic scene from the novel.  Act it out at home! You will need to write a script.  You could film this and email it to us. :)

 

9.  Create a poster-size graphic organiser that displays important information from the novel - plot, characters, setting, and themes.

 

10.  Create a mural/map showing Green Lake in Katherine Barlow's time and in Stanley Yelnats's time.  Be sure to mark important locations that connect the two.

 

Theme Park Project:

 

Have a look at the document below- it goes through everything you need to know! Get creative and get spending!  If you need any squared paper, we will leave some in the school office for you. :)

After you have completed the Theme Park Project, you might want to design an advert for it!  Have a look at the help sheet below, which will support and guide you in doing this.
