Y6 Weekly Homework Timetable 2019
Homework will be set every Friday and will be due in for the following Tuesday. Homework will include a weekly spelling list to learn (spelling test will be on a Wednesday) and either a Maths or English task.
Weekly Spellings (W/C 9.9.19)
Rule: silent letters
doubt, island, solemn, thistle, knight, fascinate, autumn, whistle, debt, isle
To ensure the children have understood the spelling and its meaning it would be really helpful if the children write out the definition for each word as part of their spelling practice. This will enable them to use these spellings successfully in their writing.
Spelling Challenge: Can you list some other words which follow the same rule?
Autumn A Creative Homework
This half term will be Y6's turn to produce a creative homework project.
'AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH'
During this half term Y6 will be learning all about mountains. The children will be able to define what a mountain is and explain how mountains are formed. Along with exploring some of the world's most famous mountains and mountain ranges. We will also be researching historic expeditions and the experiences of the people who participated. As part of their homework the children can choose from one of the following tasks to complete:
Make your very own mountain in whichever form you wish; it may be a papier-mâché model, a mountain cake or biscuits or even something you have created using fabric.
Decide what you would include in your survival bag for a trek up the Himalayan
Mountain Range. You may only take 10 items for you to carry personally. What
will you need? You will need to create an advertisement or poster to explain your choices and why you feel they will help you to survive.
Compare and Contrast
Choose two different mountain ranges to research and compare. Your findings can be presented in any way you wish; use a model, a painting, an information booklet or even a PowerPoint presentation.
