Year 6 Home Learning – Friday 10th January  

(All learning to be handed in Wednesday 29th January)

Please encourage your child to read for at least 20 minutes at least five times per week. Please record what you have read in your reading record.
Please use Spellodrome regularly at home.
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 3 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
Measure your family’s resting heart rates. Then ask them to hop, skip, jump and run, measuring their heart rates after each activity. Record this in a table and look for patterns in the data. Who has the slowest heart rate? Which exercise caused the biggest increase in heart rate? Create a week’s menu of food that your heart would love. You will need to research foods that are good for your heart first. Songwriters are often inspired by the heart. Search for songs about heartbreak or cheer yourself up by making a playlist of songs to make your heart sing!
Find out about the size and structure of a human heart and compare it to the size, structure and number of hearts in other animals. Draw a scientific diagram of the circulatory system. Label the key parts.
What does the phrase ‘blood is thicker than water’ mean? Write a story using this as a title. Create illustrations to go with your story. Write your own song/rap about the heart. Create a poster to help fundraise for the British Heart Foundation.
