English

You know what to do by now, so I won’t waffle too much.

Please read page 4 of the purple book and then complete pages 4 and 5 in the SATS question book.

Then read page 22 of the purple book and then complete p24 of the question book.

Let’s do one of the comprehensions as well today. Find your new Year 6 Reading – Targeted Question Book. Carefully read the text on pages 4 and 5 before answering the questions on page 6 and 7. (Don’t go onto page 8)

Mark your work when you’ve finished.

Maths

Mark yesterday’s work. Read through any corrections carefully so that you understand where you went wrong.

See answer sheet here.

It’s problem solving to do with perimeter today. Remember it’s all about how far Percy pig walks around the outside and nothing to do with the area inside.

It’s Unit 11 Lesson 9 and you know what to do, but please read through the textbook carefully instead of just rushing to the Practise Book.

Darwin’s Delights

We’re going to start our Innovate week now.

Future humans

Close your eyes and imagine you’ve been catapulted far into the future. You’re face to face with a human race that has gone through thousands of years of evolution. Everything is different. The environment has changed. Society has changed. Nothing looks the same. The world as you know it has changed and moved on, so how are you going to survive? What will you need in this new world?

It’s time to meet your future self.

Work through the Steps one at a time. I’ll just give you the first 3 steps today and add some more tomorrow.

Step 1) What do you think the world will be like in thousands of years? Write down your own prediction but also ask people in you house what they think and write down there ideas as well.

Step 2) What factors do you think will have the greatest influence on human evolution? Will it be climate change, population size, food sources, technology, medicine, selective breeding or something else? What do you think and why?

Step 3) Choose the factor that you think will be most influential and sketch out some ideas for how this might affect the human form. Think about how humans might adapt to suit the changing environment.
