English Work for Thursday 9th July
We are going back to Percy Jackson today. If you have read to the end of chapter 19 you will know where the master bolt is and what Percy has to do next. Over the next 2 days I would like you to write your own ending to the story. What happens next? Does Percy get the bolt back to Zeus in time? Does he stop the war? Who is the god who tricked him? Who is the one who betrayed Percy? Does he rescue his mum?
We will then read to the end of the story next week to find out what really happened.
English work for Wednesday 8th July
Today we are going to write our neat copy of our autobiographical account. Firstly spend some time proof reading and editing your work to make sure there are no mistakes and it is the very best you can do. Then you write out your final copy in neat. It can be written in you own neatest handwriting or word processed on the computer. If you are going to Blythe, it is extremely important that you send me a copy of your final piece of work so I can stick it into your new book for next year. If you are going to a different high school, you can still send it in and I will pass it on to your new school too.
On Thursday we will be returning to Percy Jackson at Chapter 20. Please make sure you have read to the start of chapter 20 before Thursday morning!
English work for Tuesday 7th July
Today we are going to write out our autobiographical piece of writing for Blythe Bridge (or you new high school) as a first draft. Your piece of writing should be at least a page long but no longer than two pages. Try to show off all of your writing skills, adding plenty of detail to describe the event. Think about how you were feeling during the event too.
Some writing features you could use include:
- figurative language
- powerful verbs, adverbs and adjectives.
- a range of multi-clause sentences
- Alan Peat sentence types (the more the more, outside (inside), etc)
- a range of punctuation marks including semi-colons
- a range of sentence openers
Also, make sure you get all of the bare necessities right.
The writing should take you about 40-45 minutes. if you finish early you could make a start on proof reading and editing for improvement.
English work for Monday 6th July
The next three days we are going to do a piece of work which Blythe Bridge have asked you to do which will be the first piece of work in your new English book for next year (so it needs to be your very best work). If you are not going to Blythe, I would still like you to have a go at it and we can send it on to your new high school too.
It is going to be an autobiographical piece about an exciting or particularly memorable moment or event in your life. Read the extract called the Great Mouse Plot (linked below) to give you an idea of the type of piece needed.
Today I would like you to plan out your piece. Think of a memorable event that you could write at length about. It could be an event in school or out of school, a holiday or a family trip, a celebration or party, a funny or amusing event, a time when you were scared or worried, a recent event or something that happened a long time ago, anything that you can remember well. It just has to be one event though, not your whole life.
Plan out what you are going to write tomorrow. I have attached a story mountain below for you to use if you would like. Also think about the ambitious vocabulary choices you might make.
Tomorrow we are going to write our piece as a first draft, then on Wednesday we are going to edit and write it out in neat.
Maths work for Friday 3rd July
Log onto the White rose Maths Year 6 page and have a go at the Friday Maths Challenge.
Faith at Home: PATIENCE
Patience is one of those qualities that we all need to develop especially when times are tough, when people and governments are frustrating. Patience to wait for the right time, patience with each other and the patience to wait on God when things seem to be taking so long to sort themselves out. The Bible is filled with stories of people like Mary, David, Moses and Noah who had to wait for the right time, for God’s time.
‘…clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience’ (Colossians 3:1)
Use this resource to watch the videos and talk about the pictures with your family. There are also short worship activities to do at home.
