Languages work

We have seen some great work produced about different languages. Xav has been learning more German, Jake knows his numbers in French, Mark has been learning words in a range of languages and Tayah has learnt some Spanish!

Pig-Heart Boy – Chapters 11-18

Above is the newspaper referred to in Chapter 16 when it is made public about Cameron’s heart transplant.

Enjoy, year 6. Remember to let me know if you are following along with the book podcasts.

I have something special coming your way linked to this topic… keep an eye out 🙂

English: We’re going to plan a balanced argument for whether heart transplants are a good or bad idea. Complete some research into this statement and create a grid with at least two points for and two points against heart transplants in the following format and use bulleted lists to note down your ideas:

Science:

Do you know what affects the heart rate and our breathing rate? We are going to investigate this question!

What is your pulse? Watch the following video about the pulse: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/science-ks2-how-our-circulatory-system-keeps-us-alive/zhf76v4

With a sibling or adult at home, have a go at taking your own pulse at resting heart rate (when you are sitting down) for 10 seconds then multiply that number by 6 to get your heart beat per minute. For example, if I measured mine for 10 seconds and it was 9, then I would do 9×6 to get 54 and that would be my heart beat per minute (54 bpm). Use the following table to record your results and upload to seesaw.

Conclusion: What did you find? Were you surprised? Was it a fair test? How could we make our results more reliable? We will look at this in a bit more detail next week…

Extra learning:

Have a go at some of these challenges as an extra task today:

Monday’s learning – 27/04/2020

English: Thinking about all the new topical vocabulary you have learnt so far, have a go at writing a heart shape poem, making the heart sound strong and powerful (personification!).

Here is an example to start you off. Once you have written your poem, write it out in the shape of a heart, then rub out the outline to leave a shape poem:

We hope you had a restful weekend, year 6.

This is what your learning will look like for this week:

We have uploaded the Home Learning pack for week 2 for those of you who would prefer working through a document for the week (see previous posts regarding content of these packs).

Alongside this, please remember:

– keep reading daily – using your own book, audible or any reading material you come across including the chapters uploaded of Pig-Heart Boy

– Continue to practise spellings on Spelling Shed – weekly tasks are being set. Can you jump to the top of the leaderboard??

– keep on top of your times tables by using TTR or Hit the Button

Keep safe, Miss Cope, Miss Caldwell and Mrs Dockerill

We are PROUD!

Year 6,

We cannot begin to say how PROUD we are of you all this week – you have come back to the blogs with a BANG! What an amazing attitude to learning we have witnessed – we are smiling from ear to ear!

We wish you a restful weekend. Stay safe and if you can, keep up with listening to the class book Pig-Heart Boy and post on Seesaw that you are doing so.

Parents – thank you for all your help and continued support for your amazing children this week.

In the voice of Claudia and Tess on Strictly Come Dancing: ‘Keeeeeeep reading!’
