Year 6 Home Learning Wednesday 24th February

Hi,

I hope you are all excited with the news of us returning to school on March 8th. Let’s hope that there are no other lockdowns and we can complete the year.

Just in case any parents missed this from previous posts, you can send your child’s work through to me at class6@shawburystmarys.co.uk. It’s great if you don’t let it build up as I try to respond promptly and the children can then react to any feedback they receive.

Tomorrow, we have another Zoom session. Can I just remind you to read Parent and Pupil Zoom Acceptable Use Policy for school.

Mr Chiverton is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting Thursday Feb 25th @ 10:30

Literacy

Today you will be exploring the difference between vocabulary typical of informal speech and vocabulary appropriate for formal speech and writing. Think about the use of language in The Spider and the Fly. Due to the age of the poem, the vocabulary is very formal by today’s standards but there is still a contrast between dialogue and narrative. Look at the Poetry slides, revising punctuation of direct speech. We don’t speak like this today! Can you rephrase some of the conversation in modern day language, keeping the meaning but updating the vocabulary?

Activity

Try to rewrite the Spider and Fly’s dialogue as modern speech, e.g. “Oh no, no,” said the Fly, “to ask me is in vain; for who goes up your winding stair can ne’er come down again.” becomes “Oh no,” said the Fly, “there’s no point asking me that. People who go up your stairs are never seen again.”

Try to generate new ideas in modern punctuated dialogue, the Spider persuading/flattering and the Fly resisting.

Focused Reading

I hope you are enjoying Selkie Summer.

To access the eBook Library you will need to follow these instructions.

  1. Go to www.oxfordowl.co.uk
  2. Click on the ‘Log in’ link (top right) to open the login form.
  3. Make sure the ‘Students’ tab is highlighted. Type in the class name shawburyy6 and password  Shawbury2021Y6 and click ‘Log in’ (Be careful with upper and lower case. There are no spaces)
  4. Once logged in, click on Oxford Owl eBook Library.
  5. In the search box type in Selkie Summer. Be careful, as spell checker will try and autocorrect.

Read chapter 3 and then answer the questions.

  1. What is a hooly?
  2. What is cabin fever?
  3. The islanders talk about Selkies. What mythical creature does a Selkie remind you of?
  4. Ext: The mood of Jess changes throughout the chapter. On page 28 find and copy a phrase which shows this?

Geography

This term we will be having a look at mapping our local area and carry out a local study.

If you can, type ‘Google Maps’ in the search engine and then type the name of the school in the search box on the Google Maps page. Explore around the school area, zoom in and out (using the buttons on screen) What have you discovered from the maps? What is nearby? What do you want to discover or explore further? What have you noticed that you didn’t know before? (Looking at maps of our local area can be surprising and fascinating because we see things from a different perspective. Streets and fields and houses we think are well known to us look different in an aerial view on a map). Can you find the school? And your house? Or the road you live on?

Click on the box that says ‘Earth’. What do you notice? (This is called ‘satellite view’. It is a photograph taken from space). Can you still see the school and the roads and other features? In this view, you can zoom in and drop the little orange person into the map to activate ‘Streetview’. Try doing that and looking around. You can move along roads by clicking on the large, wide, grey arrow that appears at the bottom of the screen. Now zoom right out so you can see exactly where the school is in the country and the world. What interesting things do you notice? What features interest you in the area around the school?

What are the main differences and similarities between satellite and map view on Google Maps?

Divide a piece of paper in two and write ‘similarities’ and ‘differences’ on each half. Write your own observations on the paper as you explore Google Maps.

Look at the presentation on how to create a map

If you can, type ‘OS Mapzone’ into the search engine to find the weblink and click ‘map skills’ on the left in the orange box to explore the options under ‘map skills’ heading. Explore this site, which gives a lot of information about map skills, as well as puzzles and videos.

These websites may help.

https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/mapzone/ – Ordnance Survey Mapzone for children;

http://digimapforschools.edina.ac.uk/whoIsUsing – Digimaps for Schools, with facility to print OS maps in A4 or A3;

Read The Spider and the Fly again, and join in with your stanza from last session. If you can, look at the video. Remember that the poem was written in 1829, but that Tony DiTerlizzi was inspired by 1920s silent films with the Spider as a villain and Fly as heroine and using the conventions of silent films.

Often a hero/heroine saved the day, but not in this poem! Look at Poetry Devices.

Activity

Reread The Spider and the Fly, annotating thefeatures and picking out unfamiliar/older vocabulary. Can you work out the meaning from the context?

  4. Ext: In Jess’s diary there is a suggestion as to what might be a key plot line in the story. What is it?

Science

This term we are looking at Living Things and Their Habitats.

To start us off on this subject I would like you to consider the topic, look at the Big Question and generate two areas that you would like to explore.

I would now like you to have a look at the Lesson Presentation Classifying Conundrums before completing the activity sheets.

I heard some work from Mary Howitt and thought it would be good to have a look at some of her work along with some other linked poetry.

I’d like you to look at The Spider and the Fly,  written by Mary Howitt (1829) and this version illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi (2002) who has put a new spin on the narrative.

Enjoy the illustrations and check that you understand what is happening.

What type of poem is this?

  • A narrative poem – it tells a story.
  • A cautionary tale – it teaches a lesson.
  • A classic poem – it was written almost 200 years ago.
  • A conversation poem.

Can you tell that it is an older poem from the language used?

Today, we will be becoming more familiar with the poem by learning a section of it.

I would like you to learn a stanza from the poem (a stanza is a group of lines arranged together in a recurring pattern). There are 7 stanzas in the poem. I’d like you to learn the following stanzas:

  • If your surname starts with A-C learn stanza 1
  • If your surname starts with D-G learn stanza 2
  • If your surname starts with H-K learn stanza 3
  • If your surname starts with M-N learn stanza 4
  • If your surname starts with O-S learn stanza 5
  • If your surname starts with T-W learn stanza 6

I’ll look after the 7th stanza.

Read your stanza aloud thinking about how to perform it (arrangement of voices, actions etc.) Try to learn your section so that you can concentrate on your performance.

I’d like us to perform it in our Zoom meeting tomorrow.

Focused Reading

A little bit different for focused reading, we will actually be able to read a book.

To access the eBook Library you will need to follow these instructions.

  1. Go to www.oxfordowl.co.uk
  2. Click on the ‘Log in’ link (top right) to open the login form.
  3. Make sure the ‘Students’ tab is highlighted. Type in the class name shawburyy6 and password  Shawbury2021Y6 and click ‘Log in’ (Be careful with upper and lower case. There are no spaces)
  4. Once logged in, click on Oxford Owl eBook Library.
  5. In the search box type in Selkie Summer. Be careful, as spell checker will try and autocorrect.

Read chapter 1 and then answer the questions.

  1. Why does the author describe Lily’s dad as having ‘dancing eyes’? What grammatical term is this description?
  2. Why wasn’t Lily so happy to be on this dig?
  3. How does the author make it clear how remote the island is?
  4. Ext: Why do you think people found the local saying, “If you can’t see the next island, it’s raining. If you can see it, it’s about to rain’ funny?

PSHE

Good to be Me

Read through the story.

Good to be Me  Story

At the end of the story how do you think Mouse felt about her little legs, her small feet, and so on? She probably still didn’t like them but learnt that it didn’t matter. She felt good to be her with both the good and the not so good.

I’d like you to make a fact file of yourself. Include a whole range of things about yourself – good and not so good.

You could use Mouse’s fact File as an example.

Have a good day.

Good morning Class 6,

Another FRIDAY and a holiday!

I would like to say a huge well done and thank you to all the home learners and their parents/carers who are doing the most amazing job. Thank you for sending through examples of the wonderful work you have been completing at home – I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing what you have been getting up to. I hope you can all find a way to enjoy the half-term holiday.

Today will be a little different because, as you will all know, our day is structured slightly differently in school on a Friday.

This afternoon we will be a having a social session on Zoom. This is more of a chance for the class to catch up with each other.

Hi,

I hope you have been enjoying our work on Carrie’s War. As it comes to an end it is worth considering how much has changed in the last 75 years. So much of what we take for granted wasn’t around 10, 20 or 75 years ago. Why not have a chat with an adult to see what was different in their childhood to what you have today.

The next 3 chapters can be listened to after the story write. There is 45 minutes of the story left.

Using the plan from yesterday, I’d like you to write up your version of the story as if they were Carrie telling it to her children on the train on the way to Wales.

Focus on developing the ideas from yesterday to include the key points covered.

  • Strong character descriptions
  • Fronted adverbials
  • Powerful adjectives
  • Similes
  • Well thought out paragraphs
  • Expanded noun phrases

Don’t forget to paragraph carefully and plan your sentences in your head/on whiteboard before you write them down. You will need to concentrate on accurate punctuation.

Ensure you read over your work to check for areas that can edited/improved.

If you decide to use a computer to type up your story, could you save it and email it to me rather than taking a photo of it? Thanks

Focused reading

You may not have listened to episode 8 for your literacy work. However, you will need to listen to it to be able to answer these questions.

  1. Why do Carrie and Albert go into Mrs Gotobed’s room?
  2. What information does Mr Johnny communicate to Carrie and Albert?
  3. List three things Carrie worries about in this episode.
  4. Ext: What happens at the end of the episode that changes things for Carrie and Nick? How do they feel about this?

Feel free to listen to the last two episodes.

7: An American soldier / Frederick visits / Mrs Gotobed dies

Carrie and Nick go to find Auntie Lou in the chapel and tell her that Major Harper is in the pub. Auntie Lou is flustered but rushes to meet him.

Carrie and Nick lie about where she is to Mr Evans. Mr Evan’s son Fred- erick visits, on leave from the army. He helps with the harvest but is mean to Mr Johnny. He tells Mrs Gotobed that he doesn’t want to inherit the shop from his father. Shortly after, Mrs Gotobed dies and Carrie passes on her message to Mr Evans. He gets very angry…

Before:

What does the phrase ‘on leave’ mean? Think about the historical setting of the story (World War Two). This chapter includes two characters who are directly involved in the War. Can you recall from the last episode who one of them is? (Major Harper, the American soldier). Listen out for who the other one is and how this person is connected to the other characters.

During:

As the episode plays I’d like you to:

  • listen out for the new character who is introduced. Who is he? What do we learn about him?
  • listen for any words or phrases that show the characters’ emotions.

Activity

I’d like you refer back to the character mapping sheet used over the last week and think back to some of the language used to describe Mr Evans and some of the other characters in the story.

The story ultimately ends as it started with Carrie returning to Druid’s Bottom with her children.

I’d like you to plan your own version of the story up to this point but as if it was Carrie telling her children what happened. Remember, this will need to be in the first person.

You will need to consider using imaginative language to describe what Carrie saw and can remember from her own childhood.

Consider what devices can be used to show a higher level of writing.

  • Strong character and setting descriptions
  • Fronted adverbials
  • Powerful adjectives
  • Similes
  • Well thought out paragraphs
  • Expanded noun phrases

This is the panning stage before a story write tomorrow.

Focused reading

  1. How do Carrie and Nick help Auntie Lou when Major Harper visits her?
  2. Why does Carrie lie to Mr Evans about Auntie Lou going up the mountain?
  3. How does Frederick treat Mr Johnny?
  4. Ext: Mrs Gotobed speaks to Frederick and says that he is ‘still the bully boy’. What does the word ‘still’ here tell us about Frederick?

History

Hopefully, you can watch https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m0008k6r/horrible-histories-series-8-9-heroic-home-front

For those who could not join up to fight abroad, the Home Guard offered an opportunity for people to feel like they were contributing to the war effort. Why do you think people wanted to feel involved? Look at the Home guard slides, outlining the role civilians played in the war effort.

Spend some time researching either the role of civilian men or civilian women in the Second World War.  Consider What was conscription? Who was conscripted? Why were there men/women left behind in Britain? How did these people get involved in the war? What were their duties? How important were they to the war effort?

I will be looking for ‘interesting facts clearly presented’.

I’m happy for you to present this using a computer; if you have the opportunity.

Some websites you might want to look at, if possible.

6: Carrie’s birthday / Lipstick / A cold, hard laugh / A visitor for Auntie Lou

It is Carrie’s birthday. They have a party for her at Druid’s Bottom and Albert Sandwich kisses her. Mr Evans is cross when they are late back, but he then turns on Auntie Lou, who is all dressed up and wearing lipstick. Carrie finds out from Hepzibah why there is such tension between Mr Evans, Auntie Lou and Mrs Gotobed. An American soldier comes looking for Auntie Lou to take her out. Carrie tells him to go away but Nick disagrees and they run to tell Auntie Lou he is there.

Before:

I’d like you to think about how Carrie might be feeling to celebrate her birthday in Wales. How do you think she might celebrate? What things might make it hard to have a proper party during wartime?

During:

As the episode plays I’d like you to:

  • listen for the things Carrie finds out in this episode. What does she learn about the relationship between Mr Evans, Mrs Gotobed and Auntie Lou?
  • listen for any clues about the relationship between the children and Auntie Lou. What evidence is there that they care about each other?

Character mapping

Add to the character mapping – Resource Sheet 1 from last week – to help keep track of the relationships between the characters. Add notes about the relationship between Mrs Gotobed and Mr Evans and add Major Harper to the map.

I hope you are enjoying Carrie’s War, by Nina Baldwin.

Carrie and Nick return with the goose and Mr Evans asks about their visit. Carrie later overhears Mr Evans talking about her spying on what goes on at Druid’s Bottom. Carrie and Nick start to make regular visits to Druid’s Bottom. Carrie finally meets Mrs Gotobed and is given a message for Mr Evans (her brother), but must only pass it on when Mrs Gotobed dies.

Before:

I’d like you to predict what will happen when Carrie and Nick get back with the goose after their visit to Druid’s Bottom. How do they think Mr Evans will react? Think about what we know of his character already.

During:

As the episode plays:

  • listen for how Carrie conceals how much she likes visiting Druid’s Bottom. Why does she do this?
  • listen for the differences between the way Carrie and Nick react to things. How can we tell that Carrie is more mature?
  • listen for the ways Carrie and Nick help out at Druid’s Bottom.

Activity

I’d like you to write a brief summary of the months covered by this episode, from December to April. Listen again to the episode and identify which months are skimmed over and which have more detail.

Carrie doesn’t always say what she is thinking. I’d like you to write down a list of thoughts or questions that Carrie might have about the things she has heard and seen. For example, she might wonder what Mr Evans means when she overhears him talking about her ‘spying’. Write in the first person as Carrie.

Focused reading

  1. Why does Carrie pretend not to have enjoyed visiting the house at
  2. Druid’s Bottom as much as she actually did?
  3. Why is Nick upset when she does this?
  4. EXT: What does Carrie overhear? How does she react to this?
