Monday 1st February
Bonjour! Mrs. Leverton here today with your tasks and there’s two shorter tasks again today as last Monday. I would like you to have a go at both.
TASK 1 – French
As a warm up, we’re going to start with rehearsing our numbers from 1-20 with Mr. Rist. Get ready to calculate in French during the lesson! Join in with the video below.
Now we are going to learn the months of the year. This means next week, we can move on to look at birthdays with a little bit more number revision. Please work through the powerpoint below – there are sound buttons to click which pronounce the words for you. Join in and practice your pronunciation.
Now have a go at the worksheet – there is no need to print it off but have a go at the two main activities. I’ve also added a wordsearch if you want to try this as an extra activity.
It’s PE time! Once again Amy Burton has a fun Dazzle Dance work out for us! Exercise is really important for our bodies and it also makes you feel pretty happy too! So, enjoy, join in and I hope this puts a smile on your face!
As a bonus, we also have PE with Mr. Rist! Mr. Rist wants to make sure we all get outdoors for a bit each day – as he tells us, it’s so important for our physical and mental health. He’s set us a challenge of a few daily drills t0 keep us active and outdoors. Plus, they’re something we can get better and better at the more we practice. Watch the video then go outdoors and have fun!
Let us know how you got on with today’s tasks and share any work you hav produced using the google form below.
Tuesday 2nd February
Hello Year 6 scientists! We will be looking at other major organ in more detail today - the lungs. However before we start, I'l like to respond to some of the comments from the Blood Vessels activity you completed last week. Some of you asked for some videos and more information about blood vessels so here it is:-
Veins contain valves that ensure blood flows in only one direction. (Arteries don't require valves because pressure from the heart is so strong that blood is only able to flow in one direction.) Once the blood flows though, the valve ensures it doesn't flow backwards as shown in this diagram:-
For those who wanted to learn more about what blood consists of, click on the following link:-
Now, on to our learning about the lungs. Remember, our bodies need oxygen to turn food into energy. So how does this oxygen get into our bodies and bloodstream? Let's find out!
Work through the following website to find out more about the lungs.
Read through the Powerpoint below and use your knowledge to answer the questions on this quiz below.
Now you are lung experts, can you use your knowledge to fill out the following sheet? Remember, you do not need to print it off as each box is labelled. Good luck!
If you are intrigued about the lungs and what to find out more, why don't you complete today's Science challenge? Simply watch the video below and use your knowledge to fill in the blanks.
Alveoli are surrounded by a network of blood vessels called ______________. When we breathe in, there is more oxgygen in the _____________ then in the ___________ . Diffusion then happens as gases always move from an area of ________ concentration to an area of low concentration. Oxygen molecules then dissolve along the thin membrane of the alveolus into the ___________ vessels. This oxygenated blood then returns to the ____________. Carbon dioxide (a waste product) then moves from the blood into the _____________.
Greetings! Mrs Leverton here with your learning this afternoon. Continuing with our usual routine you will have two tasks today – Music supplied by The Sheffield Music Hub, and an art task. I would love you to have a go at both tasks. I know the children in the school bubble have been enjoying the music – please let us know using the google form at the end of today’s post how you’re finding it at home.
TASK 1 – MUSIC
For this week's singing session, Sheffield Music Hub have set us a challenge!
There are 2 options which are both explained by Caroline in the video below.
Option 1: This requires you to work with others. Create a structure using the template provided (see the link below). Decide which part to bring in first/second/third THEN record your performance using your new structure, split into part.
Option 2: This can be done on your own. Create a structure using the template (see the link below). Decide which part to bring in first/second/third THEN record yourself singing each part, one after the other (e.g. Bow Wow Wow, then Hot Cross Buns, then body percussion)
The video starts with a fun warm up. Warming up helps us get ready to sing. It stretches our muscles and focuses our mind. For the parents watching, if you’re a similar age to me, you might appreciate a dance along to one of the songs used in the warm up! Focus on copying the warm up exactly and only making the sounds on the video!
Here is a video from our music teacher, Heather Burge, demonstrating the challenge.
TASK 2 – ART
I thought we would continue with the theme of a style of art that Miss Stephens started last week and take a look at cubism. Cubism is a style of art which aims to show all of the possible viewpoints of a person or an object all at once. It is called Cubism because the items represented in the artworks look like they are made out of cubes and other geometrical shapes. Cubism was first started by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.
Watch the video below to find out more about Pablo Picasso and cubism.
Have a look at the slides below and think about the words used and what they reflect and try to identify the different viewpoints of the face that are shown.
Now it’s your turn! Have a go at creating your own self portrait in a cubism style! There are a couple of models to follow underneath if you need a starting point. Remember to try to use colour to reflect the mood like Picasso did.
Here are the examples that we created at home when we had a go!
Alternatively, you could have a go at creating a collage effect cubism portrait as Picasso described in the first video. This can be using anything you have lying around at home – a great way to recycle! You could use old magazines, newspapers, wrapping paper, bits of coloured paper, tin foil – be creative! There’s a short video below about how you could create this. Once again, I’ve attached our efforts from home!
I hope you enjoy this year 6. Please let us know how you got on with these activities and upload any work you would like to share using the google form below.
Thursday 4th February
Miss Stephens here! I bet you can all guess what we will be learning about today!
Today's lesson will be split into 2 tasks.
TASK 1- MAP
How well do you know the parts of Canada?
It's split up into 10 provinces and 3 territories!
Can you label all provinces and territories? Plus the capital cities?
Attached is a map template for you to use at home. If you do not have a printer you can always have a go at drawing it! Or for those of you being whizzy IT people can save the map as an image and draw over it!
Below is a link to an online atlas to use at home! Use + and - to zoom in and out.
TASK 2 - FAMOUS LANDMARKS
For this task, I would like you to make notes about famous landmarks. These notes will be helpful for tomorrow's task so remember to send them in!
You can set up these notes however you like!
You can use bullet points, full sentences, have it in a spider chart or table! Whatever works! You can even draw them if you like!
Below is a video about some landmarks. Feel free to research others!!
I can't wait to see your maps and notes!
J'ai hâte de voir vos cartes et notes!
( Since Canada has 2 official languages)
Friday 5th February
Oh Canada! Part 2
Today, we will be learning and researching more facts about the country Canada! We will add to our knowledge from yesterday to make a country fact file!
I'm interested to see if any of you can find a fact that I don't know!! That's the ultimate test! If you do you can have 10 class wide rewards!!
Below is a website where you can find more information about Canada.
As well, there is a powerpoint to help you too.
I've attached a template to help you create a fact file. If you would like to include more or create your own fact file that is absolutely fine!
Canada Quiz - Thank you those 6 children who have done the quiz today!! I'm glad to hear that you are finding it fun to learn about other countries! I've replied to your comments! Most of you have gotten the answers all correct!
(I forgot to put the name box on the quiz so I unfortunately don't have your names)
