Spring 2 Week 1 Year 6 Home Learning

Maths Activities: 

Tuesday 23rd February and Wednesday 24th February 2021:

 

Over the next two days, you will be learning about ‘Volume’. This is a way of measuring the amount of space a 3D shape takes up- or to say this in a ‘less formal’ way, it’s the amount of ‘stuff’ within a 3D shape!

Because it is very likely that you missed out on this learning in Year 5 because of the first Lockdown, it is essential that you watch the video below, which provides a brief re-cap of ‘Volume’:

https://vimeo.com/508507370

The video you have just watched will help you complete the ‘Basic’ and ‘Better’ activities.

 

If you normally start on ‘Better’ activities or above, you must watch the video below now because it will help you to calculate the volume of cuboids:

https://vimeo.com/508930452

 

Finally, the video below is narrated by us and will talk you through various examples of how to calculate the volume of cuboids, mathematically.

Please see below for your activities and the answers that go with those activities.  

Remember, because 'Volume' may be a new concept to you, perhaps start a little lower than you normally would.  It's a 2 day lesson so take it slow and watch the videos carefully. :)

Thursday 25th and Friday 26th February 2021

 

Over the next two days, you will be learning about 'Scale Factor'.  Scale Factor is a way of enlarging or decreasing the size of shapes.  We can also use scale factor to see by how much a shape has increased or decreased in size.

 

Below you will find a link to a pre-recorded teaching video, which is all about scale factor...watch this video first, as it will give you the basics of 'Scale Factor'

We haven’t done a pre-recorded ‘walk-through for BYM’ because if you’re working confidently at this level, it should be relatively straight forward! If you need any help, please email. :)

 

Please see below for your activities and the answers that go with those activities.  

Remember, because 'Scale Factor' is most definetley a new concept to you, perhaps start a little lower than you normally would.  It's a 2 day lesson so take it slow and watch the videos carefully. :)

Thursday 25th and Friday 26th February 2021

 

 Over the next two days, your task is to plan and write a letter from Macduff to Macbeth.  YOU are writing in role as Macduff, the 'Thane of Fife'.  

We want this to be quite a threatening letter and we want you to tell him that you know about all of his wrong doings and that you are 'coming for him'. 

 

To get a flavour for how you might write this letter, have a look at the WAGOLL (What good one looks like) below:

Name
 Friday WAGOLL.docxDownload
Showing 1-1 of 1

After reading the WAGOLL, your task is to plan out some brief ideas for what you might say to Macbeth.  The topics that you should try to cover in your letter, might include:

  • You know he Killed Duncan
  • you know that he framed Malcolm and Donalbain for the murder of their father
  • you know that he Killed Banquo and tried to kill Fleance, Banquo's son.
  • you know that he consorted with witches
  • you know that he had the Macduff household- your household killed 

 

Listen to and watch the recording below, which will talk you through the planning sheet.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/15jspitfXingWUbBeisWbQEYlREYRLyoL/view?usp=sharing

 

 After that, if you want to use the planning sheet, then there is a blank one below:

 Macduff writes to Macbeth planning sheet.docxDownload
Showing 1-1 of 1

After you have spent some time thinking about your planning, you are now ready to write up your letter. Like we've already mentioned, take one topic at a time:

 

  • Tell Macbeth why you are writing to him
  • Tell him that you know he killed Duncan
  • Tell him that you know that he framed Malcolm and Donalbain for the murder of their father
  • Tell him that you know that he Killed Banquo and tried to kill Fleance, Banquo's son.
  • Tell him that you know that he consorted with witches
  • Tell him that you know that he had the Macduff household- your household killed 
  • Tell him that you're coming for him and you will end him!  

 

Look back at the WAGOLL if you need a reminder for how the letter should read!

Monday 1st March and Tuesday 2nd March: Dictation and spelling

 

Your task today and tomorrow afternoon is to complete 2/3 dictations exercises. To do this, you will need help from an adult or an older sibling.  Dictation means that something is read to you and you have to write down what is read, as perfectly as possible:

 

-Handwriting MUST be super neat

-Spellings should be correct

-Punctuation should also be correct

 

Choose your own dictation exercises from the PowerPoint below:

Once you have chosen which exercises you would like to do, ask an adult or an older sibling to read them to you.

 After you have finished the exercise, give your handwriting a mark out of 10, also mark the punctuation.  If you missed some punctuation marks, learn where they should have been and finally, if you spelt anything incorrectly, PRACTISE AND LEARN THE SPELLINGS! 

TASKS SET BY MR RICHARDSON! :)

*Complete Wednesday- Friday
