Home Learning Week Beginning 22nd June

School Day

Hi everyone,

It has certainly been a very busy week in school and out.  It feels like with everything we take off our list of things to do, another 2 jobs are added.  We still have lots of fun things to get sorted before the end of term for you but more of that next week.  We have made lots of progress with our Theme Parks so today you will be looking at your overall profit for the year and finding out if you can make improvements or invest in more rides.  We have nearly completed our Guided Reading books in school so if you are at home, just try to fit in some reading today.  Our discussions on Growing and Changing have been really interesting - lots of giggles but some very mature questions and queries. We hope that you go through the powerpoints and I have also found Ask Lara - we always watch these in year 6 and make us laugh but the messages are really clear so watch if you can.


Maths: Theme Park Maths

  • Once you have completed Tasks 6 and 7 from last week you can now begin to buy new rides and attractions for your Theme Park. Have a look at the new rides which are available to you (you may also add any of the previous options of attractions).
  •  Task 8 will look at the cost of running your theme park per day over the next 6 months of opening.
  • Task 9 will let you know how much you can charge for tickets in your next season of opening. See if you can upgrade a band or 2.
  • Follow through the instructions for Tasks 10 and 11 to see how much money you make in your second season. Add this to your bank account. Can you afford to pay off your £500000 bank loan now and still be in profit?

Thursday 25th June

Good morning everyone, most of today's activities follow on from yesterday.  It has been lovely to catch up your work this week but if you haven't went in any of your work then please send so that we can have a look at.  If this is too difficult to do, just an email would be appreciated.  We have had an update from Miss Vernon on each year's achievements on Mathletics.  It is great that year 6 have used it so much.  Remember to catch up on the activities that we have set this week if you haven't done already.

Have a lovely sunny day again, Mrs Swanwick and Mr Lether smiley wink

Looks like it is going to be a lovely and hot sunny day.  Find somewhere cool to do your home learning or get it done this morning or later today so that you aren't too hot and bothered!  We are looking forward to reading and seeing your new art topic work and of course your invention leaflets and persuasive information.  The Yearbooks are finally finished and ready to be sent to be printed - they should - fingers crossed be ready for the last week if term.

Art – People in motion/action
We would like you to create a sketch, drawing or painting of a person in motion. This could be an athlete, a dancer or it might be from a photograph of yourself. Be creative with your ideas.
The powerpoint titled ‘Drawing people in motion’ should give you some inspiration and a starting point for this. There are many Youtube tutorials to help you sketch people in motion, this is just one of them:
The following weeks:

  •  Next week we will continue looking at figures in motion and have a go at sketching a sequence of movement to create a moving flip book.
  •  The following week we will look at how to create sculptures of people in motion.

How to draw motion in your figure

Learn how to add motion when drawing people by using gesture drawing. step by step

Tuesday 23rd June



1. Read Chapter 18-20 of Holes by Louis Sachar or listen to it on Youtube

Task 1: Use the persuasive devices resource sheet 1 to identify which you think I have used in my description.

Task 2: Be the editor and see if you can now improve it with some of the ** and *** devices.

Task 3: Write out your edited description and share it with us.


Topic - The end of the Mayan Civilisation

Follow through the powerpoint and consider the 3 reasons why the Mayan Civilisation might have come to an end:

  •  Deforestation
  •  Drought
  •  War


Think about the different reasons we have looked at in the powerpoint. We would like you to decide which reason is the most likely compared to the others. You may actually think that there was another reason which you will need to propose and give your reasons


Present your reasons in any of the following ways:

  •  As a final speech for a Mayan Tour Guide at the site of Chichen Itza
  •  As an information poster
  •  As an explanation text for the British Museum
  •  As a film narrative for a National Geographic film about the Mayan civilisation – think about the way that David Attenborough presents

Monday 22nd June



Read Chapter 15-17 of Holes by Louis Sachar or listen to it on you tube

Task 1: Write a short description of the grass flip flop, think about what it is made of, how it is constructed, who would use it and what the benefits are of this type of footwear.

Task 2: Look at the different Footwear descriptions on Resource sheet 1. Can you identify how the manufacturer (who makes it) and the retailer (who sells it) persuades the buyer to buy the item? What is it about the description that sells the product? Why would you buy it? Highlight or list

Task 3: Can you now improve your description of the grass flip flop to make it a more ‘sellable’ item of footwear? What did you change?

Proof reading spelling and punctuation

(No spelling or grammar focus this week but lots of writing.)
