Good morning, everyone.

Let’s start the day with a little workout with Joe Wicks. Please use YouTube to access his daily workout for children live at 9am every weekday morning for 30 minutes. His page can be found at the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

Reading:

Please re-read the Waste Warriors text in your CGP book and answer the questions on pages 12 and 13.

 

If you are reading the Paralympics text, please answer questions on pages 12 and 13 about that text.

 

Spelling:

Congratulations to the nine children for achieving Royal Bee status last week! There were six children who were very close - keep it up!

 

This week, we are focusing on homophones. Remember that these are words which sound similar but have different spellings and meanings.

Look at the following homophones –

 

aloud/allowed

serial/cereal

led/lead

passed/past

through/threw

affect/effect

 

Can you explain what each of the homophones mean? Use an online or paper dictionary to help you.

 

*The most difficult ones are ‘affect/effect’. Affect is a verb – you could use it in a sentence, like If I don’t practise football regularly, it will affect my skills.

 

Effect is a noun – you can use it in a sentence, like The effect of going outside in the rain is getting wet!

Draw some pictures to help you to understand the meanings of these words.

 

Remember to log onto Spelling Shed for the new assignment. There are a series of homophones to practise – some new and some to revise!

 

Maths:

This week, remember to keep going onto Times Table Rockstars to keep improving your speed.

Today, let’s look at negative numbers. Here is a quick recap on negative numbers to help you:

You may want to use the guide below to help you with adding and subtracting negative numbers.

Now have a go at page 4 in your CGP book. Use the number line in the book, or draw your own in your home learning book to help you.

Log on, click the Year 6 tab, GPS and look for
Year 6 Formal and Informal Vocabulary and Styles.

Once you have done that, you could practise writing a very formal letter to your parent, asking them for a healthy snack!

 

Remember to keep practising your homophones on Spelling Shed!

We are going to focus on Roman numerals today. Here is a PowerPoint presentation that will help you, especially with the larger numbers. You can have a go at writing the Roman numerals in your home learning book. Once you have done that, you can do the Roman numeral activity in your CGP book on page 5.

 

Wednesday 1st April

Good morning, everyone.
Let’s start the day with a little workout with Joe Wicks. Please use YouTube to access his daily workout for children live at 9am every weekday morning for 30 minutes. His page can be found at the link below:

Reading:

Today we have a treat for you! David Walliams is reading stories from his World’s Worst Children books. Follow the link below to listen to one of his stories.

Afterwards, draw a picture of the main character and write a description underneath.



Spelling:

Let’s look again at homophones. Look at the following list again –
aloud/allowed
serial/cereal
led/lead
passed/past
through/threw
affect/effect
Write some sentences using the words to show that you understand them.
Remember to keep practising your homophones on Spelling Shed! Some children have achieved Royal Bee status already!


Maths:

Today, let’s look at rounding. You know the rule, don’t you? If the digit is four or less, you round down, and if the number is five or more, you round up. Remember to use the place value hats for this activity. If you need to round to the nearest ten, look at how many ones there are. If you need to round to the nearest hundred, look at how many tens there are. Always look at the column to the right to help you.
This video might be a good introduction for you:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zh8dmp3/articles/zpx2qty

 

Also remember that when you round a number, do not forget the digits that come before it. For example, 4,556,892 rounded to the nearest hundred is 4,556,900. I looked at the hundreds column and I knew I should round down to 800 or up to 900. Then I looked at the tens column. As the digit was 9, I knew I needed to round up to 900. All of the other digits larger than hundreds are still needed.

 

Now have a go at the rounding activity in your CGP book. It is on page 7.

Thursday 2nd April

 

Good morning, everyone. Did you hear that the money that Joe Wicks is making each day is being given to the NHS? He has raised over £80,000 so far so keep going!


Let’s start the day with a little workout with Joe Wicks. Please use YouTube to access his daily workout for children live at 9am every weekday morning for 30 minutes. His page can be found at the link below:

Reading:


Today we would like to read text 3 – Kidnapped on pages 16 and 17 in your text books. Afterwards, find and underline any examples where the author describes David’s feelings in a more visual way.

 

Some of you are reading a text called Conker on pages 16 and 17. Afterwards, have a go at writing the next part of the story in your home learning books.


Spelling and grammar:


Let’s look again at formal and informal writing. Here is a short passage, written very informally! Can you rewrite the passage in a more formal tone?



Guess what?! I had the shock of my life today! You know, Philip Schofield, the guy on the TV? He only came to my house last night with a massive cheque. He said I’d won a competition and I got 20 grand! I couldn’t believe it. The next morning, we all piled in the car and went to get a brand new car! Awesome!

Once you have done that, let’s do some grammar revision. Log onto Kids Classroom Secrets, click the Year 6 tab, GPS and find Year 6 Spring Revision Set 1, which is on page 3.


Remember to keep practising your homophones on Spelling Shed!



Maths:


You have now done all of the activities from section 1. Have another look to make sure you are happy with these areas. When you are ready, have a go at the mixed practice questions on pages 8-9. They cover ordering numbers, negative numbers, Roman numerals, decimals and rounding. Good luck!

 

Check your answers with the answers in the back of the book. How did you get on?
