Science
A good measure of fitness is how quickly your heartbeat returns to its resting rate after exercise. Last week we guided you through an investigation in which you explored the effects of exercise on your pulse.
This week we would like you to use your scientific inquiry skills to design your own investigation into how quickly different heart rates return to resting.

Think about:

  • o What will I measure and record?
  • o How many participants will be in my investigation?
  • o What is my resting heart rate?
  • o How long will I need to exercise to raise my heart rate enough?
  • o After exercise, how often will I record my pulse? (every 5? 10? 20? 30 seconds? (What is both realistic to measure and will produce enough data.
  • o Can I record my data using a linegraph afterwards?
  • o How do I keep this experiment fair?

(Use the cheat sheet if you are struggling)


Additional Challenge: If you repeat this investigation with a different level of exercise (e.g. more exercise or high intensity of exercise), how do your results differ? How many variations of this investigation can you complete?

Wednesday 13th May

Good morning everybody, hope that the week is going well so far.  Yesterday I (Mrs Swanwick) spoke to Mrs Houlgate and she was asking how everybody in Year 6 was doing - it was great to tell her how well everyone was getting on and she reminded me of you all being in Reception!  Well, today is almost half way through the week.  We have been busy planning and starting on our report writing - you will see that there is an activity for you to do on this on Friday although you may have started this already.  In addition to this we have both been busy with doing jobs at home and exercising.  Mr Lether has finished his office and Mrs Swanwick has been clearing out the garage - how exciting!  I have also managed to keep running 3 times a week which I never thought I could do and Mr Lether runs to check on the cygnets by the canal.  What exercise have you done this week - maybe a little more as we have more opportunities to do this now with our family.  Just in case you haven't got your work planned yet for today, here is a reminder what is planned.

 

Have a great day, Mrs Swanwick and Mr Lether smiley wink

 

English - reading and performing

1. Read ‘L3 & 4 Excerpt from Jack and the beanstalk by Roald Dahl’
2. Answer questions and reflect on the poem using the tasks in ‘L3&4. Reading and reflecting on a poem’ to help you. Complete task 1 and 2.

 

Unfortunately I can't seem to upload but it is in the zip folder at the beginning of this week - sorry sad

Science

Today's Science is for today and tomorrow.  Last week the focus was on your heart rate and pulse after exercise whereas the focus for this investigation links with the resting pulse.

Tuesday 12th May

Good morning everyone, I am up early this morning as my list of jobs seems to be long this week - working from home requires different organisational skills but different times to work and find space.  It has been great to see some of your photos and how much time you have been spending outside but also in how you have been using your organisational skills to manage your work so independently.  A great skill to have worked on and one that will certainly help for Year 7.

Today is a continuation of quite a bit of yesterday's work but all is detailed below

 

English - Writing

1. Read ‘L2 Top tips for poetry reading’
2. Look at ‘L2 Reading and performing poetry using the subjunctive’ Read the poem, ‘If I were a king.’

  •  Highlight examples of subjunctive
  • Answer questions about the poem

3. Now have a go at writing your own additional verses. Read, ‘L2. Task 3 - writing additional verses and the optional tasks’ to help.

 

Spelling

Can you think of any other words which end in –ant, -ance or –ancy?
What do you notice about
a) the spellings
b) the meaning
of the words when the suffix chances from –ant to –ance to –ancy ?

 

Maths

Today is a Mathletics and/or TTRockstars. day - check in what you have assigned for mathletics

if you would like some more of a challenge then have a look at the  ‘Optional Maths Challenge’ for this week.

Topic - The Mayans

Continue with your Mayan God work from yesterday.  We have already a few examples sent in with great drawings and fact files.  Please continue with your weaving if you have started it - it has great to see your efforts too.

 

Have a good day smiley

Monday 11th May

Good morning Year 6.  We hope that you all had a great weekend - the weather was lovely and sunny for 2 days and we hope that you managed to watch some of the VE Day celebrations on tv or maybe you had your own celebrations where you live - distance afternoon tea. If you have any photographs from your own VE celebrations then please send them in. 

This week we have some interesting activities for you to do - some continuation from our work last week: Science and maths with some new topic work on the Mayans and after some fantastic writing on Just So Stories we are giving you a writing rest and have some performance poetry for you to do. 

Please keep doing your online learning when you can - we know that it might be difficult to access laptops, ipads etc. so we have given you a list of non-internet activities for you again this week.  Our message is the same:

  • keep doing what you can,
  • send in an email to let us know how you are if you didn't do this last week,
  • remember to keep up your own exercise, relaxation time, do your own hobbies when you can and
  • keep washing your hands! 

 

English

The focus today is on the subjunctive form which we have touched on in school, 'If...were...'. There are some activities for this and a powerpoint.  This then leads on to some poetry tomorrow.

1. Go through powerpoint: ‘L1 Subjunctive Powerpoint with audio’ Have a go at the activities in the powerpoint as you go along.
2. Read through and complete the tasks in: ‘L1.Tasks 1 and 2 The subjunctive form’
3. Read through and complete the tasks in: ‘L1. Task 3 and 4 Subjunctive form and job application’

 

Maths

1. Video: Year 6, Summer Term Week 1, Lesson 4 – Angles in a Triangle missing angles: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/


2. Activity worksheet: ‘L1. Missing Angles in a Triangle.’


Please note that we have not been following the exact order of activities and days on the White Rose website. Today’s work will be found under Summer Term - Week 1 Lesson 4 on WR website

 

Topic - The Mayans

Topic (Click for link to YouTube video from last week )
1) Read through the powerpoint, ‘Mayan Gods’ . Take notes as you go through. Have a quick think about the questions on slide 21 of the Powerpoint. You could discuss these questions with your parents or siblings rather than write responses down.


2) Your main task is to design your own god.
You can create a model, draw, paint or produce your god in any way you wish. Think about the following.
o What this god be responsible for?
o What attributes would they have? (e.g. something they carry)
o What your god looks like?
o What is their name?
o What does their name mean?
o What sacrifices have to be made to this god?


3) Can you now create a fact file for your Mayan God? You will need to consider the questions above for your fact file.

 

You may have started doing some Mayan weaving - we had some lovely examples last week.  If you want to carry on with this or even begin then have a go.
