Week 4

This week, we thought you might like to do your learning ‘alongside’ the children in school. So we thought we’d share with you some of the things they’ll be doing and you can have a go too. We might even email some of our school learning for you to have a look at. Perhaps you could email us some of your learning too? All the resources you need can be found on the class page under the tab ‘Summer term 2’ http://www.whistonjunior-infant.co.uk/classes/year_6/home_learning/summer_term_2.html

Mega Maths: Mrs Denwood has uploaded some more challenges onto Prodigy Maths so the children in school will be competing to solve these. We will also be completing some of the quizzes on https://diagnosticquestions.com/

Maths: This week, the children will be having a go at solving the Cinema mystery. I wonder if you’ll find the same culprit as they do?

Reading: This week the children will be studying the poem ‘The Tyger’ by William Blake. Have a go at reading the poem and completing the comprehension questions.

Writing: In writing, the children in school have started writing their own version of the poem ‘The Magic Box’. They are absolutely brilliant! Could you have a go at creating your own version of the poem? You could even record yourself reading it out loud and email it to us. We might even record some of our poetry and send it to you.

PSHE: We will be continuing some of our transition work, so remember to keep working through your transition booklets.

Science: This week we will be learning about air resistance…by making paper aeroplanes J We will be exploring this website to help us create a range of different designs. https://www.foldnfly.com/#/1-0-1-1-1-1-1-1-2 How far will your aeroplane fly? Send us your results and we’ll compare them to ours. Next week, we might even create some graphs showing all our results.

PE: In PE we will be choosing a range of 60 second challenges to complete and hosting our own mini competition. Why don’t you join in and send us your results? https://www.youthsporttrust.org/60-second-physical-activity-challenges

We will be completing the following:

  • The Burpees challenge
  • Catch and clap
  • Speed bounce challenge
  • Tap up tennis challenge
  • The plank challenge

Finally, please don’t forget to send us some of your favourite memories of Whiston. These could be linked to the following:

 

My first day at school…

My favourite teacher…

My funniest memory of Whiston…

My favourite school trip…

 

You could record these or simply write them down and email them to us J

Maths

When you are choosing a lesson to complete from the Maths websites on the timetable, we would recommend that you focus on number and place value. This will help you hugely when you begin your secondary school journey. Try to make sure that you are confident with the following learning objectives:

  • Read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10,000,000 and determine the value of each digit.
  • Use negative numbers in context, and calculate intervals across zero.
  • Multiply multi-digit number up to 4 digits by a 2-digit number using the formal written method of long multiplication.
  • Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a 2-digit number using the formal written method of short division, interpreting remainders according to the context.
  • Perform mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers
  • Solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

To support you with this, below you will find revision PowerPoints for each objective. You will also find a range of problem solving activities and murder mysteries. Finally, we have also uploaded some Arithmetic tests which you might like to complete. These will keep your maths fluency up at the wonderful level you’d all worked so hard to reach. We’ll upload the answers too, so no peeking!
