As I am unable to do Magic Club this half term, I will be recording some card tricks which will be posted on the Middlestown Primary Academy Facebook page. This week, I have started with quite a simple trick as my helper wasn’t very helpful – hopefully she’ll get better with a little bit more training. The tricks have been put on in instalments and I’ve included a few bloopers…and there were quite a few! Hope you enjoy the tricks and my very special assistant. Miss Rooke

Revision
Remember to find 95% of an amount, find 5% and subtract this away from the amount

e.g. 95% of 120 =

Find 10%    120/10 = 12

Find 5%      5% is half of 10% we know that 10% of 120 is 12 so

5% = 12/2 =6

To find 95% subtract 5% from 120

120 – 6 = 114

95% of 120 =114

Task: To create a collage of the things you are looking forward to high school.

What is a collage?

It is a technique of composing a work of art by sticking various materials not normally associated with one another e.g. newspaper/magazine clippings, parts of photographs, theatre tickets, plastic, sand, soil (anything from the garden) – any material that you have got spare. If you haven’t got any glue, you can arrange your collage on the floor/table and take a picture of it.

Examples of collages:

Watch this video to see how a collage has been created:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hG-mgQPess

First, research:

Visit the website of the secondary school that you are going to in September and make a list of all the things that you are looking forward to.

E.g. Things I am looking forward to:

Meeting new people, joining the hockey team, experiments in science…

Next, collect materials:

Once you have made a list of the things that you are looking forward to, start collecting materials that you think that you can use in your collage.

E.g. string, newspaper, bottle tops, buttons, old wrapping paper, ribbon

Warm up: Finding the mean

The mean is the total of the numbers divided by how many numbers there are.

To find the mean, add all the numbers together then divide by the number of numbers.

E.g. Find the mean of 56, 32, 12 and 17

First add all the numbers together: 56 + 32 +12 +17 = 117

Then divide 117 by 4 (because you added four numbers together) = 29.25

Activity 3: Year 6 Spellings and Definitions Matching Activity 3

Ideas to help you learn your spellings:

1) Draw around the word to show the shape

Draw around the words (see example below) making a clear distinction in size where there are ascenders and descenders. Look carefully at the shape of the word and the letters in each box. Now try to write the word making sure that you get the same shape.

2) Words without vowels

This strategy is useful where the vowel choices are the challenge in the words (see example below). Write the words without the vowels and you have to choose the correct vowels to put in the space.

3) Pyramid words

This method of learning words forces you to think of each letter separately (see example below). You can then reverse the process so that you end up with a diamond.

 

 

 

 

 

Then choose 6 words and write six separate sentences using the word in the correct context.

Or…

Challenge: Write a paragraph or two (that makes sense) incorporating the six words that you have chosen.

Using the information that you found out last week, create an information leaflet on Crime and Punishment in Roman Times. How you choose to create it is up to you.

You could use:
Purple Mash, Publisher or produce a handwritten/drawn one.

Remember the features of a leaflet: information texts

Here are some possible facts that you could use in your leaflet. You do not have to use them all as you should have you’re own facts from last weeks research

Transition

Being in Year 6 is a little different from being in any other years in primary school as your next adventure is to secondary school. Normally, we would be doing transition activities to get you prepared for high school. Over the next few weeks, you are  going to be receiving information from the secondary schools that you are going to, to try and help the transition from primary to secondary a little easier.

I am also going to be helping you with this process. The first thing I would like you to do, is to think of any questions that you may have about going to high school. Usually, a teacher from a high school would come in and speak to you about this and then you would be able to ask them questions. Obviously, at the moment, this something that we can’t do, so instead I would like you to watch some video clips and then think of any questions you may have about starting your chosen secondary school. No question is a silly question if you’re worried about something.

Any questions you have can then be e-mailed to me and we will then get to work at getting the questions answered.

SUMMER TERM: WEEK 1 [20.4.2020]

Hello and welcome back.

I hope you have all had a great Easter break despite this weird situation we find ourselves in.

Maths

To get you back into the swing of school work again, I would like you to have a go at an arithmetic test. The layout is slightly different to the ones that we have done in class but it contains the same type of questions. I’m going to include 2 arithmetic tests: a normal one and an extension one. If you struggle with any of the questions and want me to remind/help you understand how to work the calculations out, e-mail me at:

middlestown6@gmail.com

Task 1:

This week, I would like you to have a look at noun phrase. Below are links to help you understand what a noun phrase is and how, by adding noun phrases into your writing, you can create more descriptive sentences.

A noun is a person, place, name, object, animal or a feeling.

E.g. Miss Rooke, London, Monday, desk, dog or happiness.

Nouns can be expanded when writing a sentence by adding a determiner, adjective or a prepositional phrase.

Example of noun phrases using determiners:

the dog, one apple, a dream, an igloo

Example of a noun phrase using a determiner and adjective:

the curious cat, two delicious cakes, an unusual creature

Example of an noun phrase using a determiner, adjective and prepositional phrase:

The dilapidated cabin by the lake

A prepositional phrase tells you where the noun is.

Below are links and resources to help understand what a noun phrase is:
