Spellings will be handed out each Monday, to be tested the following Monday.

Year 6 only – Arithmetic

Complete the questions (making sure you use your squares in your book to show the workings) We will mark this together as a class on Thursday so we can spend time going over any misconceptions or new strategies.

Over the next 2 weeks you must complete an activity/series of activities that total at least 15 points. How you choose to do so is up to you! For example, you may just complete the fifteen-point activity or may choose to do one ten and a five-point activity; you could also choose to do three five-point activities – it is completely your choice! Have a look at the activity menu below:

 15 points 10 points 5 points –       Design and make (evaluate optional) a bridge with a gap of at least 30cm. It must hold at least a can of baked beans. Choose from these bridges: suspension, clapper, arch, cantilever, truss or combined bascule bridge. –       Research the design of trains,  in relation to the forces that act upon them. How have they changed over a time? –       Find famous bridges in the UK and place on a map of Britain. –       Find the distance of a railway line between two cities using a scale of a map. Show your workings for how you have used the scale and calculated the distances. –       Create a fact file of at least three famous bridges. –       Find the distance of a railway line between two cities. Find this distance in miles, km, m and cm. –       Research at least three types of forces (Eg. Air resistance, pushes and pulls, water resistance, friction, gravity, magnetism). Explain how they work using diagrams.

* When you evaluate, think what you would do differently next time and what you think went really well!.
