War Horse Chapter 6 Questions

Happy Monday! I Hope you are all all keeping safe - it was so lovely to see some of you on your daily walks last week. Thank you to those who have completed and handed in your projects - if you haven't yet done so - there's still time this week! x


As a whole school, we would like you to start emailing/uploading to the blog the set work (i will let you know which work i would like emailed/uploaded each week).


Daily Maths: White Rose Maths (Week 5, click link above) and next six questions on the next three pages (if at the end of the booklet, restart from the beginning!) as well as daily TTRS sessions. 

Reading: By the end of the week to have read the next chapter in War Horse and completed the questions above.

Daily SPaG:  Attached SPaG practice paper (one/two pages per day)

Writing: WRITING COMPETITION!! Luke Temple is a children's author (a copy of his best-selling book is attached above) and has organised a writing competition that I know you will be able to enter some fantastic entries for! There are 2 different writing activities (If you complete both, then you will be entered twice, if you complete one, you will be entered the once - you decide! But remember it is a competition, so the standard of writing expectation will be high!!) Details of the competition activities are attached above. You can do as many drafts/edits as you like, but all entries must be emailed to school by the 27th May 2020 (next Wednesday!) Looking forward to seeing what wonderful ideas you come up with!! 

Remember to be keeping a regular diary - include pictures/story boards of your favourite days -  of your time during the Covid-19 lock down and home learning experience - note down personal feelings, thoughts, activities and how you are keeping safe/positive as a family. 

P.E/Dance: Daily P.E with Joe Wickes/Ross or Dance with Oti Mabuse (YouTube) Can you create your own fitness routine or dance routine to teach someone at home?

Creative: Complete last week's creative outdoor display project if you haven't yet done so (check last week's page link for details). Lot's of you wanted to do more PowerPoint work, so for your creative task this week: Think of a career path/job (If you don't know just yet - pick any that you may enjoy!) that you would like when your are older. Research what qualifications you would need (if any!), further education, skills, experience, personal qualities. What the job/career would include (responsibilities/roles etc), and why would you like to do this job/why do you think you would be successful in this career. I would like this done as a PowerPoint presentation if you can or as report/booklet. 

Daily Education City: Either French, Music, ICT, (maybe try a new language or subject you haven't done before?) 


Science: ONGOING ACTIVITY - not compulsory every week. This term, would have been our 'break' from Science. If you would like to, I thought it would be fun/interesting for you to create a booklet fact file/PowerPoint (anything informative!) about any scientists that we have studied or mentioned throughout Year 6 so far (Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Carl Linneaus, Mary Anning, Alfred Wallace, Alexander Fleming, Benjamin Franklin, Alessandro Volta) Choose as many as you want - you may choose to do one/two scientists per week and add to your fact files?! I am looking forward to seeing what you create/find out about these scientists.


Keep Smiling. Keep Safe. Lots of love, Miss T xx
