Home learning

Please complete pages 17 & 18 of your maths book and page 55  of your SPaG book.

I would also like you to think of a problem in the world that needs solving. For example, being too lazy to exercise or always losing your pencil case! You need to think about why the problem needs solving and what problems the world/person will suffer from, if this problem is not solved.

Next, think of an invention to cure it/solve the problem. Use your imagination.

For example the problem of being too lazy to exercise: you could invent a machine that you strap yourself into and it exercises for you.

Draw a picture of your new invention and create a poster to advertise it!

Remember to use persuasive words and phrases and emphasise how it would make people’s lives better and easier.

Remember to make it colourful and interesting too – and make me want to buy it!

Your main task is to choose an invention you think is REALLY important and write a paragraph to persuade me that it is the most important invention of all time! We will be discussing these in class next week so please bring them in by Wednesday 18th November.

Remember to use persuasive devices!

Persuasive texts often include:

repeated words

alliterative words

Please complete the work below:

Pages 76 and 77 of your SPaG books and page 35 of your maths book.

Have a go at the test on Spelling Frame (the shul sound)

I have also sent home a fact file template about Joseph Merrick (reffered to as John Merrick in Wonder). Research Mr Merrick to complete the fact file, including why he’s referred to in Wonder (check p. 193) and what his quote, “Sometimes I think my head is so big because it is so full of dreams”, has got to do with August.

For your first home learning task in Year 6, I would like you to research Treacher-Collins syndrome, which is the condition suffered by the main narrator of Wonder.

You need to collect at least five facts: how the condition affects people; how common it is; symptoms etc…

Please present the work neatly and clearly!
