Re watch this video. Remind yourself of the storyline and the different characters. Now write a story in the first person and past tense to tell the story from your chosen character's point of view. Remember to add a range of punctuation and write in paragraphs.
Here is my example below. See if you can work out which character I am.
RE with Mrs. C!
Happy Wednesday year 6! I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas resting and spending time with your families.
It's Wednesday which means it's RE - today is 6th January (Epiphany). Do you know what this is? Research it! You should be experts after performing in our nativity. Below is a short animation to remind you.
I would like you to be creative today for RE. The Magi/Wise Men followed the star which led them to Jesus. Imagine if they hadn't followed that star! Today is all about stars. Be creative - make craft stars/fold origami stars/make star bunting/bake star cookies/draw stars/build a star from Lego.
These are a few ideas - if you have better ideas go with those. Remember to take pictures and email them to Mrs. Whitaker, then she'll share them with me. I can't wait to see your creations!
PE with Mrs. C!
Right year 6 time to move! We'll be working on keeping you fit and active this half term, using boxing based fitness moves. Boxers need to be incredibly fit and one of the ways they maintain their fitness is by skipping/jump rope. Watch the videos below to be inspired by Anthony Joshua and Floyd Mayweather.
I know you can all skip - remember the skipping festival in year 4? Dig out those skips and remind yourself how to do it - all those different types of skipping moves too.
Next step is to build up your stamina - can you skip continuously for 1 minute/2 minutes/3 minutes? Try to practice at least 10-15 minutes each day for the next week. I'm joining in too! (Hopefully videos to follow)
If you don't have a skipping rope or can't borrow one, please email Mrs. Whitaker, who will let me know and I can drop one off at your home.
Boxing based next week - watch this space!
Science - Week 1
Hi Class 6, Happy New year!
I hope that you have all had a lovely Christmas and that you are ready to switch on your scientific brains! To help us think scientifically again, we are going to recap on electricity which we looked at last half term. For your first piece of Science I would like you to plan an investigation to answer a question but I am not going to give you a question! The only thing I am going to give you is a list of the equipment that would be available for you to use to answer your question.
Here is the equipment:
You have: only 1 cell but as many wires, bulbs and bulb holders as you need.
Using just these pieces of equipment you need to come up with a question that you can investigate. Remember the questions that we investigated before Christmas. (How does the number of cells in a circuit affect the brightness of the bulb? What happens to a motor if more cells are added to the circuit? How do you make a buzzer sound louder? What happens if you add more bulbs into your circuit?).
Once you have a question, you need to think about planning your investigation and making a prediction. How will your test be fair? what will you change and what will you keep the same?
Use the template below to help you plan your investigation and remember to include a circuit diagram so that we can carry out your plan when we return to school. Remember electrical safety and don't try to carry out any electrical investigations at home! I look forward to seeing your work.
Thursday 7th January
For the first time, I have tried to make some short videos to help introduce some new learning for you at home. I hope they are ok and make things a little easier for you. Please contact me at any time, using the class email address, to ask any questions you might have or to share any work you have done. If I don't look at it straight away, I will by the end of the week! I am also aiming to ring you all soon to see how you are getting on.
Hope they're ok
Mrs W :)
Hi class 6!
Since you all were so fantastic at the Makaton we did last term, I thought I would put up a video of a lovely song for you to try at home.
