Year 6 Online Learning

Thank you to those of you who have begun working on Google Classroom. Below you can find both a timetabled overview of the week’s learning and a further daily breakdown of the activities with resources linked where possible. In some cases, such as English and maths, we are unable to publish some of the resources publicly on our online learning webpage so will put those resources on SeeSaw. We shall be populating SeeSaw each morning with the day’s learning tasks to avoid an overload of information and to make it easier to locate the activities. We have included a recommended schedule of learning. This is not compulsory but you may find it useful to help structure your day. It also includes advisory timings for each activity.

If you have any questions about the online learning that has been set such as accessing paper copies, support with the content and understanding or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher through our email addresses posted below.

I am talking to my friend.

English

Today you will have a go at creating your own travel video about London. Choose one of the videos from yesterday as an inspiration for writing your own. Before you draft your script and record your video, think about the following things:

  • What key information will you include?
  • Which landmarks will you ‘visit’?
  • How will you tailor the video so it is suitable for your target audience? (How will you make sure the person watching the video is informed but also entertained?)

It would be a good idea to draft a ‘script’ before you try to record your video. Use your London facts from last week to help you with the content then add in language that will engage the reader. Hint: using each of the four sentence types might be a good idea!

Once you have drafted your script, feel free to send it to us so we can check it over before you create your video. You might like to use Adobe Spark for this. If you do not have a device that you can record on, feel free to create a PowerPoint instead.

Spelling

Complete the sheet all about the root ‘auto’. There is a completed example of the sheet that you should use to help you.

Times Tables

Now that you have carried out lots of research about London’s landmarks and watched the travel videos, we want you to imagine that you are going to visit London for real  - sadly, we won’t be able to do this for real this year. Imagine you took a train to London Waterloo to visit some landmarks. Write a diary entry describing what you saw and did there. Try to include some of the figurative language we practised last week as well as some of the features we have looked at this week (four sentence types, modal verbs).

Ask someone at home to test you on this week’s spellings. Alternatively, phone a friend who has the same spellings and get them to test you!

This art session will continue on from last week's. Continue creating a 3D model of a London Landmark using ‘junk’. You might want to collect your rubbish or other things that you can think of to help with this. We cannot wait to see what you create!
