Year 6 Residential Meeting Slides
This week, our stars of the week are
Blake from the Peregrines class and Tom F from the Ravens class.
Congratulations to you both and well done for your hard work.
(Set on Friday 23rd October - due in Wednesday 4th November)
Your English homework will be put onto the website every Friday. Use your English homework book to complete this work in and hand this in by Wednesday. You will not need to print any of the homework out, but if you need a paper copy let me know. Sometimes, instead of putting your homework into your book, you may be able to do this electronically. On these occasions please email your homework to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week your homework is about our World War 2 topic.
You will not need to use your homework book this week, complete your work on paper.
In the next chapter of Goodnight Mister Tom, we will be finding out about a shelter which Willie and Tom build to protect against an air raid. There were many different shelters that were used during the war for protection. See what you can find out about these.
You can present your work in a number of different ways.
- Make a booklet explaining the different types of shelters. (Remember the formal reports you have written about the outbreak of war and use some of these skills)
- Write a set of instructions to explain how to build a shelter. (Think about how diagrams could be used to explain your step by step instructions and make sure that these are sequenced for your reader.)
- Make a poster to inform people that they need a shelter and explain why. (Think about the work we have been doing on propaganda posters.)
- Produce an annotated diagram of a shelter, explaining the features of these. (Think about the annotating we have been doing when looking at texts in class and make your annotations detailed and clear.)
- Make a model of a shelter to show how this would have looked.
These are some ideas. You may come up with some others of your own.
Make sure that your work is carefully presented so that this can be displayed in the classroom after half term.
We look forward to seeing your creations.
As well as this homework, remember to read every day and record your reading in your reading record.
Over half term make sure that you write some detailed comments in your reading record book.
Record your opinion about the book, anything interesting that you learn, anything that you notice or some questions you may have about the text.
If you can’t find a good book to read and that you enjoy, please ask and we will see what we can recommend. There are so many amazing books to read.
Your maths homework will vary each week. Sometimes it will be My Maths and sometimes it may be something created/set specifically such as a worksheet or activity (this might be put electronically on the website or you will be given a paper copy if you need one).
Times Tables: Don't forget to practise for your weekly times table test. It is up to you how you practise your times tables - you just need to be prepared for your Friday test. You could play games on Times Table Rockstars, you could play your own times table games / quizzes or get someone to test you.
