History: 

This week, as part of our topic on the Romans, we would like you to research a Roman god/goddess. You have written the name of the one you are researching in the front of your home school diary. Look at what the God represents, who their family are, what they look like and any other information. You will be sharing this with the rest of the class on Tuesday.

To be completed on the sheet of paper sent home. Please note this needs to be neatly presented because it will be added to your topic work in your book. Some will be added to the display board in class.

Times Tables

Reading

Reading regularly is essential to help improve all aspects of your learning as well as being an excellent way to relax! You are expected to read at least 4 times/week but aim to read everyday if possible! House points are awarded for reading and recording what you have read. 

We will be collecting Home School Books in on Monday. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book.

Year 6 

Due in Tuesday 21st January 2020

This term we are going to be learning about the Mayans in History, and South America in Geography. To support you in this we would like you to create a project on either one of these topics. This will form your English homework for the next couple of weeks.

 

Mayans

You might like to research about who the Mayans were, where they lived, what they ate and drank, what beliefs they had, what they wore, what laws and punishments they had, their education, writing and number system and what they did for jobs.

 

South America

You might like to research a particular country within South America, the climate different countries have, mountain ranges, the human geography of South America (e.g. population and life expectancy of people) and industry and trade. 

 

Project tips and expectations

  • A good project consists of pictures, subtitles and detailed information and a contents page. You might also want to include a glossary of words to help the reader. 
  • Think about where you can find your information. You could get some books from the library or check the internet.
  • You are free to present your project as you wish; you can type it, handwrite it or have a mixture of both. 
  • We want to see that you have made an effort to research different things and have taken care and thought carefully about presenting it beautifully.
  • Anything you write must be in your own words and you should make sure that you understand what you are writing about. We will be checking this.

 

 

Reading

Keep up with your great reading and make sure you are recording all of it in your Home School Book. Please make sure you are writing a comment and getting an adult to sign your book at the weekend.

Spellings

We will be continuing with our spelling lessons, keep learning the rules we teach in class and be ready for the next test date.
