This week's Yr 6 Home Learning

As we come close to the end of our science unit this term, we will begin to look at different ways to show off everything we have learnt about the Circulatory System.

 

Work through this video and complete the short tasks to give you a reminder of everything we have learnt about our bodies this term:

Welcome back to Spring term! To kick start our history unit this term, have a go at a World War II crossword below:

Friday 7th January

 

Welcome back! As part of our core text this term – ‘Letters of the Lighthouse’ – we will be exploring the life of Olive and Cliff as evacuees during the World War. To help deepen our understanding of life as an evacuee during these times, explore the websites below to give you more information before having a go at designing your own ‘suitcase of an Evacuee’ – have a look at the picture below to give you some ideas.

Relative clauses | English - Grammar

Watch this video if you need help with relative clauses: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYwiB5XD32M 

Remember, an embedded clause goes in the middle of a main clause, just after the noun

 

Activity 1

Write the sentence out with commas around the embedded clause. 

1) The man who hadn’t eaten for hours went to get some lunch. 

2) The tree that had lost its leaves waved in the wind. 

3) The river which ran for miles thrashed against the bank. 

 

Activity 2

Identify the relative pronoun in each sentence: 

1) The tickets, which I’ve already paid for, are still valid. 

2) Lucy, whose car had broken down, didn’t go. 

3) Maximus fell to the floor where he stayed for a couple of hours.

 

Activity 3

Add an embedded clause to each of the following sentences: 

1) Derek went up to bed. 

2) Mrs Jones marched up to her office. 

3) Mr Stevens sat and drank his Dr Pepper.

 

Activity 4

Answer the following questions:

1.  Dave, who was the chair of governors, walked around the school building. Why does this relative clause use the pronoun who and not whose? 

2. My sister, who eats meat, is a vegetarian. 

What is wrong with the relative clause in this sentence? 

 
For the past few weeks in maths, we have been focusing on adding and subtracting fractions. These skills are important to learn and remember as they will help us when we move onto more problem-solving tasks later on in the term!
Have a look at the videos below to remind you how to complete both concepts, then have a go at the questions below:
Remember the steps for each of the calculations:
Step 1: Add the wholes
Step 2: Add the fractions
Step 3: Put it back together
 
1.  1 2/5 + 2 3/10 = 
2.  4 1/4 + 1 11/20 = 
3.  3 5/9 + 1 3/4 =
