HJ Y6 5/10/20 - 13/10/20
We kindly ask that children do not bring in any of their work from home back into class, in order to minimise home/school contact.
If you are still self-isolating and will not be returning to school this week, please use the attached link to access further home learning tasks and the math's activities for Wednesday through to Friday.
Good morning class, your work for Tuesday the 13th October is outlined below:
Think of someone you admire, someone who inspires you who you would love to write about... they could be anyone; from a favourite celebrity, to a family member to even Mrs Calpin! Someone who you consider to be a God in your eyes... Thought of someone? It could be even the God you studied yesterday if you're struggling! We are going to turn them into a 'real life' God, with superpowers and everything! Be as creative as possible!
Now have a look at my WAGOLL example on 'Bielsa...the God of Yorkshire' and magpie some sentence starters and WOW words you may want to also use. Secondly, now you have decided on your 'God' and looked at my example... use the blank English planning sheet attached, 'Planning sheet chosen God', to note down:
-Description: How would you describe your God? What is their personality/ looks like? Can you use ambitious adjectives and varied sentence starters to make it engaging!
-What symbols are associated with them?! Can you add a simile for an extra challenge!
-What is their superpower- Use figurative language to 'paint the picture'
-Finally, how did they become a God? What was their childhood like and early career? Use time connectives and adverbials to upgrade!
*This task is very important because it will prepare you for your return to school, where we will be creating a mini SAGA on your chosen God. So please make sure you help yourselves and gather as much information as possible*
Additional to that, please complete:
1) Maths -Watch the video from White Rose on Roman Numerals https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/10672-2/

Good Morning class, your work for Thursday the 8th October is outlined below:
Today we are conducting a Science experiment to see what affect sugar (acting as catalyst) has on the chemical process of fermentation.... or simply put... a 'Yeast Race'!
The method and key ingredients you will need are listed in the document attached - 'Yeast Race Instructions' - please remember that both cups and their contents need to be the same; the only variable we are changing is that one cup will have a sugar solution in, to ensure the test is 'fair'.
Once you have collected your equipment, measured your ingredients and set up your race, make sure to measure both cup's starting heights at 0 minutes, then again every 3 minutes up to 21 minutes! Whilst you are waiting for your mixtures to rise, you can be filling in the Science worksheet attached, 'Yeast Race Worksheet' !
Finally, once you have calculated each height up to 21 minutes, and decided on your winner... complete the challenge - is yeast alive? So, having watched the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2HDJP10qSQ and looked through the PowerPoint (Mrs Nerg Living Things) ... what do we think... is yeast alive? Try and use as much scientific vocabulary as possible in your explanation!
