Year 6 Home

Week beginning 13/07/20

Who could have imagined that the end of the school year would arrive so quickly?! Certainly, not me! I hope that you have all had a good week and that your home-learning has gone well.

 

I know that I speak on behalf of the entire staff of Hob Green Primary when I say that we are all very sad that we won’t be able to say goodbye to you all in person due to the circumstances that we all find ourselves in this year. I would like you all to know that it has been a great privilege to teach you and that you have been a credit to our school. We will miss you very much and we wish you all the luck in the world as you move up to secondary school.  

Your final week of home-learning activities can be found below, as well as on the English and mathematics pages. 

 

Take care,

Mr Parker   

 

Humanities

This week in class, we are going to be learning about time zones. Use the Powerpoint presentation to learn about this geographical concept and then complete the questions on the worksheet provided. You can choose the level of challenge depending on how confident you are feeling. The sheets get more challenging as you scroll down. 

Art

Click here to see a really fun lesson on how to draw an elephant in five easy steps! It’s a great insight into how cartoonists work and I think you’ll enjoy it. All you need is a felt-tip or marker pen and a piece of paper.

 

Music

Click here for another excellent activity from BBC Ten Pieces at Home. First, join Barney Harwood in exploring the music of Beethoven and one of the most famous motifs in musical history. Then, watch as Doctor Who composer, Segun Akinola, explores beginnings and sets a creative challenge based on Beethoven’s famous opening and the start of BBC Proms. (See week 12.)

PSHE

This week, the children in class are going to be encouraged to reflect on their time at Hob Green. We will be discussing all of our happy memories and thinking about the way that everybody has grown - not physically, but ‘as people’ - over the years. I would really like you to write down your reflections and memories of your time at our school and send them in to me so that they can be shared with everyone in school. You could start with, 'My favourite memory of Hob Green is...' or 'I remember when...'.

 

Week beginning 06/07/20

Just two weeks to go until the summer holidays! I hope you have all had a good week and that your home-learning has gone well. Thank you for sending in your photographs this week for the special leavers' gift we are making for you all. It's looking great!

 

Don't forget to send me your work using the submit work page. It can be work that you have completed in any subject - I am keen to see how you have been getting on.

Please see the links below for this week’s work. Your daily English and mathematics lessons await you too! 

Good luck and stay safe.

This week in class, we are going to be learning about the hemispheres and the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Use the Powerpoint presentation to learn more about these geographical concepts. Your task is to explore two locations, one in the northern hemisphere; the other in the southern hemisphere. Use this information pack to help you complete the following tasks:

 

-Read the information pack in full. It may be a good idea to make notes on what you are reading.

-What are the similarities and differences between these locations? Think about both human and physical geography when you make your comparisons. Jot down your ideas on a piece of paper. 

 

Want a challenge?!

Answer the following question: What difference does being in the northern or southern hemisphere make to Canada and Australia?

Science

Click here for the Oak National Academy lesson, 'Explain how to identify whether a chemical reaction has taken place'. In this lesson, you will learn about the difference between physical changes and chemical reactions. You will learn about the particles in both of these types of change and the signs to look out for in a chemical reaction. You will need a pencil, a ruler and a piece of paper for this lesson. If you have baking soda and vinegar, then you will need that for an investigation too, but don't worry, you can still take part without these things.

Art

Click here to see a Powerpoint presentation about the artist, Ted Harrison. Learn about his paintings and then follow the instructions to create a piece of artwork of your own in his style. If you don't have oil pastels at home, then just use crayons, pencils crayons, felt tips or water-colour paint. It's a fun project that the children in class have really enjoyed.  

PSHE

Click here to see a Powerpoint presentation entitled, 'Dear Deirdre'. We used it in class this week. It is all about some of the worries children may have when they start secondary school. It is full of good advice to make you feel better about some of the concerns you may have.  Remember, if you have any questions for me about secondary school, please do contact me in the usual way.   

Week beginning 29/06/20

Amazingly, there are only three more weeks remaining before the end of the Summer Term! You have all done such an incredible job with your home-learning and it's really important that you keep it up for the next three weeks in order to enable yourselves to be as prepared as possible for September, when you start secondary school.  

 

As ever, please do send me your work using the submit work page - I'd especially love to see your 'super  sentence stacker' writing that you have been doing!

Please see the links below for this week’s work. Your daily English and mathematics lessons await you here too! 

Good luck and stay safe.

Humanities

This week in class, we are going to be learning about climate zones. Ernest Shackleton's ship, The Endurance, set sail from Plymouth with the aim of reaching Antarctica. Using a world map and this online Atlas, see if you can work out the route you think the ship may have taken. Describe the journey in as much detail as you can, referring to the names of the seas or oceans crossed and countries and continents passed along the way. Next, Use the climate zones Powerpoint presentation  to learn about the different climate zones in the world. Now, revisit your map and plot the journey again, working out which climate zones The Endurance would have passed through on the journey. 

Science

Click here for an Oak National Academy lesson that builds on the recent work we have done on states of matter. In this lesson, you will learn what happens to particles during dissolving. 

Music 

Click here to find a link to another fantastic activity from the BBC's 'Ten Pieces at Home' project. This week (see week 10), you are encouraged to write and present a news bulletin about the life and work of composer Joseph Bologne! This sounds like great fun!

PSHE

Click here for a link to a booklet about life at secondary school. If you have not yet begun using it, I recommend that you start from the beginning and do a couple of pages each day this week in order to catch up. If you have been using it, then this week, I would like you to complete pages 12-15 please. Do contact me in the usual way if you have any questions about the activities in this booklet. 

Week beginning 22/06/20

Another week has passed already and I hope it has been a good one for you all. Do keep sending me your work via the submit work page and as ever, if you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact me in the usual way.

 

You may have seen on the news that there has been much talk about the importance of children not falling behind with their learning as a result of Coronavirus. I am very proud of all the hard work you are doing. Keep it up!

This week in class, we are going to be learning about Ernest Shackleton's crew onboard his ship, Endurance. Shackleton advertised for crew members and received around 5000 applications - he only needed 26 men! We are going to be thinking about the type of people he would have been looking for and the qualities they would have needed in order to be successful crew members. Think about the different 'skill-sets' he would have needed in his team. For example, he would have needed a doctor in case anyone became ill or was injured. He would have needed a cook to feed his men. Can you think of any other important roles? Life in the frozen conditions of Antarctica is extremely tough and even more so a hundred years ago, when technology was less advanced. These people needed Hob Green-style GRIT ('go for it attitude'; resilience; independence; tenacity) as well as other important qualities. Did you know that Shackleton looked for men who could sing well whilst recruiting? He believed that singing was important for lifting the crew's spirits during challenging times. 

Task: Pretending to be Ernest Shackleton, write a job advert to attract the attention of people with the skills you think were needed. Click here for an example of a job advert (not related to Shackleton) to help you structure your writing.       

Science

In class this week, we are going to revisit our recent learning around adaptation because we have learnt that Shackleton took 69 dogs on the expedition, many of them cross-breeds selected for their inherited characteristics. Just as Shackleton needed his men to have certain skills and attributes, he also needed his dogs to have the right characteristics to survive in Antarctica. Click here for a fun task about cross-bred dogs.  I have attached a Powerpoint presentation to help you to recap your knowledge and understanding of evolution and adaptation.  

Food Technology 

Click here to find a link to a delicious and simple recipe for mini pizza quiches! Remember, cooking should only be done with the help of an adult. You may need to ask an adult to buy a couple of the ingredients especially as part of their weekly food shop (if they are happy to do so), but much of it may already be in your cupboards at home. 

PSHE

Click here for a link to a booklet about life at secondary school (if you did not begin using it last week). In class, we are going to be talking a lot about what it will be like to leave Hob Green and begin secondary school.  This week, I would like you to complete pages 8 -11  please. It is very important that you ask if you have any queries about anything you are working on in this booklet. Please contact me in the usual way if you have any questions or need any help. 

Week beginning 15/06/20

I hope you are well and that you have had a good week. I received some fantastic work through the submit work page this week, including some beautiful poetry and posters based on the PSHE work around the Black Lives Matter movement. Well done to you all!

This coming week sees the return of some of you to school. I am really looking forward to teaching you again but for those who are not coming back, rest assured, I will continue to set home-learning work for you on this site.  

Please see the links below for this week’s work. Your daily English and mathematics lessons await you here too!

This week in class we are going to be learning about Ernest Shackleton. Click here to learn more about this famous explorer. If possible, discuss the 'nature versus nurture' debate with an adult or look it up online. Have a think about the Shackleton quote that you will find in the Powerpoint presentation. Do you agree with him?

 

Then, using a world map (easy to find online), search for the following locations:

 

The South Pole

Antarctica

Ireland

United Kingdom

Canada

Norway

Argentina

All of these locations were significant in Shackleton's life.

 

Now use the compass on the worksheet to help you to use directional language to describe the position of these locations in relation to the UK. For example, India is east-south-east (ESE) of the UK.

Science

Click here for a link to the Oak National Academy lesson - 'Represent the particles in pure substances and mixtures', which builds on last week's states of matter learning.

Art

Click here to find a video showing you how to make a Giacometti-style sculpture out of tin-foil. It's great fun! Don't worry about the plaster craft strips (unless you happen to have some); your sculpture will be perfectly good without them.  This link provides more information about Giacometti if you are interested in learning more about this artist. 

PSHE

Click here for a link to a booklet about life at secondary school. In class, we are going to be talking a lot about what it will be like to leave Hob Green and begin secondary school. You can keep up with this at home by working through this  booklet. This week, I would like you to complete pages 1 - 7 please. It is very important that you ask if you have any queries about anything you are working on in this booklet. Please contact me in the usual way if you have any questions or need any help. 

Week beginning 08/06/20

I hope you have had a good first week of the final summer term and that you were able to pick up your home learning routine again after the half-term break. I will continue to set home learning activities here until the end of term to ensure that you are academically prepared to begin secondary school in September. It is important that you try your best to keep up your hard work until the summer break and I will continue to be here to support you in every way possible.    

Thank you for the work that was sent to me last week - I am really impressed with the tenacity you are showing with your learning! Developing independence, as you are at the moment, is going to serve you well at secondary school - your hard work will pay off. Remember, you can use the submit work page to send me anything you would like me to see.

Please see the links below for this week’s work. Your daily English and mathematics lessons await you here too! 

Good luck and do continue to stay safe.

Last week, I asked you to think about how humans survive in extremely cold locations and to research the following:

-

  • Where in the world is it very cold? (The coldest inhabited town is Oymyakon in Russia, but there are other cold places you might like to research.)

  • How do people live there?

  • What are their houses like?

  • What food do they eat?

  • What is their transport like?

This link may be of help if you have not yet completed this research. 

As you know, our humanities lessons this year have been based around second-order concepts that every class has been exploring. For this current geography topic, our second-order concepts are 'interconnectivity', 'change over time' and 'cause and effect'. This week, I would like you to think about change over time. We have learnt that planet Earth has changed over time, which is why we have had ice ages in the past. There is lots of talk in the news about climate change. It is important to understand this issue. I would like you to research the causes for changes in the Earth's temperature over time. Please make a note of your findings. This link may be helpful. 

Science

Click here for a link to the Oak National Academy lesson - 'Represent the particles in solids, liquids and gases'.

This lesson will provide you with some very important revision of this key aspect of physics in readiness for September when you start secondary school. 

Music and Art

Click here to find the latest creative lesson from BBC Ten Pieces combining music listening and appreciation skills with art. This week, you will discover how illustrator James Mayhew uses Stravinsky’s dazzling music to inspire him to draw. You will then create a fantastic illustration of your own! Enjoy!

 

PSHE

Click here for a link to a BBC Bitesize video about racism, which is of course very topical at the moment and indeed, important to understand at all times. Examine the terms prejudice, discrimination and racism. What do you think they mean? Look up their meanings if you are not sure. Watch the clip and then think about the possible reasons for the girls' racist behaviour. What would happen if behaviour like that happened in our school? Why is it important to tell a member of staff? Think about the poet's words 'we should celebrate our difference......even though we're different we can all be treated equal'. What do you think he means by 'celebrate our difference'? Your challenge is to either make an anti-racism poster based on what you have learnt in this lesson OR to have a go at an anti-racism poem of your own! You may wish to try both. I would love to see your posters and read your poems. Please do submit them for me to see!

Week beginning 01/06/20

Hello Year 6! I do hope that you were able to enjoy half-term despite the challenging circumstances in which we still find ourselves. You are all doing a fantastic job with your home-learning and in the way that you are coping with the situation - I feel very proud of you all. 

Thank you to those of you who have submitted work over the last two weeks. I am sorry that I was unable to respond this time, but I will be able to do so again from this point. Remember, you can use the submit work page to send me anything you would like me to see. Also, if you have any difficulties with any of the work that has been set, please contact me in the usual way. I am here to help!

Please see the links below for this week’s work. The English and mathematics lessons are again based around the Oak National Academy website, which continues to provide high-quality resources for our use.  

Good luck and stay safe.

This week, we are going to think about how humans survive in extremely cold locations. 

Please research the following:

-

  • Where in the world is it very cold? (The coldest inhabited town is Oymyakon in Russia, but there are other cold places you might like to research.)

  • How do people live there?

  • What are their houses like?

  • What food do they eat?

  • What is their transport like?

This link may be of help but there will other websites and pages that will be helpful too as you'll discover as you research. Remember, always get the permission of an adult before using the internet and always keep our internet safety rules in mind. 

Your task is to use your research to create a poster showing the various ways in which humans cope with living in extremely cold locations. 

Science

Click here for a link to the Oak National Academy lesson – 'What impact are humans likely to have on life in the future?' This lesson draws together our recent learning on evolution, adaptation and habitats and links nicely to the work we are doing in humanities at the moment too!

Click here for some information on BBC Bitesize about Humanism. Watch the video and read the information. If there is an adult available to discuss this information with, talk to them about it. Think about your recent learning in science about evolution. How does this link to Humanism? Other questions to consider are: Is Humanism a religion? Is it possible to accept the theory of evolution and follow a religion in which a god or many gods are worshipped? If there is not an adult available to discuss this with you, why not jot down your thoughts and sent them to me using the submit work page? I'll get back to you about your ideas.  

Week beginning 25/05/20

Thank you all for the hard work you have done with your home-learning over the last few weeks. I have been very impressed. I shall not be setting any additional work this week as it is now half-term and you deserve a break. 

Of course, if there are any activities that have already been set and which you have not yet attempted, feel free to give them a go if you want to, but the most important thing to do this week is to spend time with your family and relax. I often use holidays to do more reading for pleasure - I know many of you will probably want to do the same. Remember, there are many good reads available on Myon.co.uk.

I am looking forward to seeing you before too long.    

Stay safe and take care.

Mr Parker    

Week beginning 18/05/20

I hope that you are all well and that you enjoyed last week's home-learning. Do keep sending in your work; it's lovely to see and read. Remember, you can use the submit work page to send me anything you would like me to see. 

Please see the links below for this week’s work. The English and mathematics lessons are again based around the excellent Oak National Academy website, which I know many of you are finding useful. 

You will very likely be called on the telephone by Miss Wood this week. I have emailed parents and carers to explain the reason for this. 

Good luck and stay safe.

Humanities

Building on last week's research work for our new humanities topic, ‘Frozen Kingdom – What would happen to our planet if there was another ice age?’, click here to view a web page containing some useful information. Either read it all, or scroll down to where it says, 'Life during the ice age'. Here you will find lots of information about animals that lived during the ice age. Your task is to research some of the animals (choose the ones that interest you the most). Using your recent learning in science, try to work out why these animals were well-adapted for life on planet Earth during this period. You can record your research and ideas however you like! For example, you may wish to make a PowerPoint presentation or create a poster on a piece of A4 paper.   

Science

Click here for a link to the Oak National Academy lesson – 'What impact have humans had on plants and animals?' This lesson looks at how humans have changed over time and uses the theory of evolution to explain these changes. You will then explore the impact that humans have had on some species of plants and animals.

Music

Click on the word 'music' above for a super lesson on harmony singing. The warm-up to the lesson, which lasts for a couple of minutes, is based on a previously taught song that you don't know, but the new learning begins very quickly and is not related to this song, so don't worry. 

Computing

In computing, we are going to continue our work on coding. Hopefully, you were able to work through last week's exercises and take a look at Scratch. If you didn't get chance, it might be worth looking back at last week's home-learning below and clicking on the links under 'computing' before moving on to this week's lesson. Click here to open a PowerPoint presentation with instructions to follow for this week's lesson. Enjoy! 

 

PSHE

Click here to see a video about growth mindset and the importance of giving to others. Once you have watched the video, think about the idea of ‘paying it forward’. Does being kind make other people more likely to be kind too? If you can, talk to an adult in your home about this idea? You could make notes to record the ideas generated from your conversation. After that, list different ways in which we can give to others.

 

 

Week beginning 11/05/20

 

Another week has passed. I hope you and your families are well and that you were able to enjoy the bank holiday weekend as much as possible. I enjoyed speaking to you on the telephone last week and will call again soon.

 

Please see the links below for this week’s work. Remember, you do not have to complete all of it. I strongly recommend that you follow the English and mathematics lessons I have set and then complete as many of the other activities as you and your parents or carers feel is right for you.

 

As ever, please email me for help with any of the work I have set and do remember that you can use the submit work page to send me anything you would like me to see. I do get very excited when I receive work from you!

 

Good luck!

Humanities

This term, our humanities topic is ‘Frozen Kingdom – What would happen to our planet if there was another ice age?’ The focus will mainly be on geography, but it will involve some prehistory too as we first learn about the various Ice Ages that our planet is believed to have gone through. Click here to find a Powerpoint presentation to give you some background knowledge about this fascinating period of history. You may also enjoy to watch this video to help build your knowledge.

 

Your task is to conduct some research about the Ice Age. Remember to check with an adult before going online. Whilst researching, think about the following questions: What is an Ice Age? When did the last Ice Age occur? How do we know about the last Ice Age? (What evidence is there?)

Science

Click here for a link to the Oak National Academy lesson – Which organisms lived during each era of time? This lesson ties in really nicely with this week’s humanities work and will help to build your knowledge of the animal kingdom which will help you when we complete both the adaption and classification units we still have to complete.

Music

Click on the word 'music' above for another fabulous lesson from BBC Ten Pieces. Do let me know if you need any help with this – I do like a bit of music as you know!

Computing

In computing, we are going to focus on coding.

Click here to recap on what is meant by an algorithm.

Click here to learn about debugging.

Click here to visit Scratch. If you haven’t already used Scratch, you’ll love it. It is a fantastic introduction to coding activities and it is free to use. You just need to create an account for yourself. There is a tutorial video on the website. Have a play this week and then next week, we can look at specific tasks building on this week’s learning.

Week beginning 04/05/20

 

I hope that you and your families are well and that you've had a good week. Thank you all (including your parents and carers) for the hard work you are doing with your home-learning. Please do continue to email if there is anything I can help you with. It has been lovely to see your work again this week. I am interested in seeing any of the work that you have completed and feel proud of, regardless of which subject it is. You may have noticed that Mr Fellows has added a 'submit work' page for each year group here on the hub. You might find it easier to upload your work to this page rather than emailing it. I look forward to speaking to you all this week when I call your parents. 

This week's foundation subject work can be found below. I do not want you or your parents to feel overwhelmed by the amount of work being set here. I fully understand that learning at home is different to learning in school. If you can complete an hour of English, an hour of maths and some reading every day, then you are  doing a super job! You may then wish to do a couple of the foundation subject lessons listed below - perhaps on a couple of the afternoons throughout the week. Remember, it's important to relax and to try to have as much fun with your family as is possible during this time.  

Good luck!

Mr Parker 

 

History 

See the link above to the Oak National Academy lesson - How did Hitler Rise to Power? We learnt about this in the Spring Term and this lesson will enable you to consolidate your knowledge and understanding of the important period in history. 

Extra: On Friday of this week, we celebrate VE Day. Please click here for information about this significant event in history. Click here to hear Winston Churchill's famous speech announcing Germany's surrender. This week's writing challenge will be linked to this speech, so listen carefully!

Science

See the link above to the Oak National Academy lesson - What are the different animal kingdoms? Moving away our unit on evolution and adaptation this week, this lesson will help you to begin understanding more about classification in the animal kingdom. 

Music

See the link above for another fabulous lesson from BBC Ten Pieces. The videos are excellent and although simple, there is a huge amount to learn here. I think the group clapping activity could become a lockdown family favourite! You are invite here to draw or make something to reflect what you feel or 'see' when you hear a given piece of music.

Design Technology (cooking)

See the link above for a recipe for cheese and potato pie. This activity must not be attempted without the presence of an adult. An adult will need to supervise your use of kitchen knives and other utensils. If an adult is available to help you, why not cook tea for your household one night his week? Cheese and potato pie was the first meal I cooked as a child - I can still remember the excitement of bringing it home from school for my family to eat!

 

Art

See the link above for a really fun art lesson based around optical illusions. Enjoy! 

Week beginning 27/04/20

 

I hope you've had a safe and enjoyable weekend. I also hope that you've had some time away from school work over the last two days. Thank you to those of you who have sent work to me via email - it's so lovely to see what you have been doing. I am interested in all of your work, so if, for example, you have tried the perspective drawing task I directed you to last week and are feeling proud of what you have achieved, please email me a photo!

This week, we will again use the Oak National Academy lessons as the bedrock of our learning. I have been pleased to receive such positive feedback from you about these lessons so far. Please see the maths and English pages here for more information about this week's core subject learning. 

 

Luckily, the Oak National Academy foundation lessons this week are focusing on precisely the work we would have been doing in school had we still been there at this point! I've listed plenty of foundation lesson ideas below. You may not have time to complete them all and that is fine. I would recommend that you do your maths and English lessons in the morning and then pick and choose from the lessons below if you want to do additional work on any of the afternoons. I have not listed anything specific for PE as I am aware that the majority of you are using the daily Joe Wicks sessions to get some exercise.

 

Good luck!

 

Mr Parker  

 

History

See the link above (Monday's foundation lesson) - Was the Treaty of Versailles fair?

As you will remember, we did a lot of work about the Treaty of Versailles in our humanities lessons in the Spring Term. This lesson will provide an opportunity to revise and consolidate that learning before we move on to our Summer Term humanities topic.  

Science

See the link above (Wednesday's foundation lesson) - How do fossils provide evidence for evolution? 

This lesson will build on the science work I set last week on Education City. If you haven't completed that work yet, don't worry, just take your time and do that first. 

Art

Building on last week's lesson, the link above takes you to another video on perspective drawing to consolidate your understanding. Once you've watched the video, click on this link to learn about a famous painting called The Scream by Edvard Munch. It is an interesting painting and you will notice that it uses perspective. I would like you to have a go at re-creating the picture as a sketch using what you have learnt about perspective drawing. If you have paint at home and want to paint it after you have sketched it, go ahead!

Music

Use the link above to continue the work you may have started last week. If you manage to complete a poem, I'd love to read it!

 

PSHE

Use the link above to watch a video featuring children talking about anger. Use the ideas raised in this clip as a starting point to discuss with an adult at home (if possible) different types of anger. If not, you could jot down your own thoughts and ideas about this. Think about when it is right or reasonable to feel angry in certain situations. Then think about and jot down your own anger triggers. Now have a think about appropriate ways to deal with different types and levels of anger. Think about this week's art lesson on The Scream by Edvard Munch. Are there any links between what you've been asked to think about in this PSHE lesson and the emotions expressed in the painting?

Week beginning 20/04/20

I hope you have been able to enjoy Easter despite the circumstances that we all find ourselves living through at the present time. 

Thank you all for making such a super effort with the home-learning activities you have been set so far.

 

Following the announcement that the lock-down will now continue for at least three more weeks, I will be setting focused activities for you to complete at home each day. On Sunday, the Education Secretary announced the launch of the Oak National Academy, which is an online bank of lessons and resources that you can access during this period. The resources are of high quality and I shall direct you to specific lessons each day. In addition, I may also direct you to other external websites (e.g. Education City) where I will have found or prepared additional activities for you. You may also find PDFs and other documents uploaded to this blog to help you with your home-learning. 

I understand that working from home can be difficult, which is why I am so impressed with how well you have all been coping with this challenge so far. I am not expecting you to study all day long at home; I don't think that is realistic. As such, I will direct you to two or three - usually hour long - targeted activities each day and then suggest additional activities that can be completed as and when throughout each week. 

If you need my help with any of the activities between my fortnightly phone calls, please don't hesitate to email me and I will either respond via email or by calling you. 

Good luck!

Mr Parker
