Good morning Year 6, I hope you had a good weekend.
Like me, some of you will have mixed feelings in the week that should have been our SATs week. Some of you will be very happy that you are not arriving at school this morning to do your SPaG test, some of you will be sad that you don’t get to show all of the learning that you have done and some of you will have mixed feelings and won’t have decided how you feel about it yet. All of the above are completely fine! To help this week, I am going to put a non-SATs activity on the end of each blog. Something that we may have done in school in the afternoons and some things that might celebrate the fact that we are not spending this week revising and forgetting how to spell our own names. If any of you want to talk about how you are feeling or ask any questions, just send me an e-mail and we can have a virtual, electronic chat.
Last Tuesday, you were asked to look at the positive impact that the lockdown has had on nature and other environmental areas. Today, I would like you to write to the Government or someone else who holds power, and explain to them what changes we need to keep to ensure these positive impacts stay i.e. should we be allowing animals more freedom, do we need to spend more time with our families, should we be forced to use our cars less in order to keep levels of pollution down? What you write and who you write to is up to you but make it persuasive.
This week, we are going to complete some maths puzzles, games and investigations. I hope you enjoy them.
Today, you have jumped ahead to the year 2050 and you have been asked to design the first ever theme park that will be built on the moon!!
Use the booklet below and follow each task to design your theme park.
If you need some inspiration, why not look at the websites of existing theme parks.
In the comments box, tell me about the theme of your theme park.
Today I would like you to make a collage that represents nature – it could even be formed from nature. You could complete bark rubbings, collect leaves from your garden or use spare boxes to create texture.
Your picture could be an outdoor scene, a plant, a forest etc.
Here are some examples:
Complete a relaxing activity such as meditation or yoga to calm you at the start of this week.
Here are some videos to help you:
