As of this week, Topic work for home learning will include a combination of lessons from the Oak Academy as well as the resources we use in class with the Year 6 children who are returning from the 8th June. We will ensure that there are at least five topic lessons uploaded per week - if there is more you may pick and choose the content you would like to cover.
PSHE - Racism
You may be aware of the recent events that occurred in America, involving a black man called George Floyd who died after a white police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes. George Floyd's killing, which was captured on video, has cause outrage and sparked a wave of protests in cities across the world.
In class, we will be going through the powerpoint uploaded below, stopping for discussions and questions throughout the lesson. As you play through the slideshow at home, think carefully about the questions that are presented. How do they make you feel? Have you learnt about this before? How can we educate future generations to be anti-racist? You may have questions of your own - see if you can speak to the adults at home and discuss this further.
Science - Represent the particles in solids, liquids and gases
In this lesson, we will learn about particles! We are going to learn how the particles in each state of matter behave and how this leads to the properties of solids, liquids and gases. For this lesson, you will need a piece of paper and a pencil.
The Circle Challenge
How many circular objects can you think of? You will use your imagination and creativity to beat this challenge!
