T5 Week 4
Please open the document 'Year 6 Maths Home Learning' below for information on Maths activities this week. The 'White Rose Home Learning' activities are also saved below as PDFs.
Non-fiction: Explanation Texts
- What is formal language? Watch the videos, try the quizzes and then write/type/ record a range of sentences using formal and informal language. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvgg4qt/articles/zp42rwx
- Design your own marvellous machine, just like the Teacher-Pleaser. You may want to do something like a Bedroom-Tidier, a Homework-Completer or a Sibling-Annoyer! Create a poster of your machine and label its different features, thinking carefully about how each part works.
- Write an explanation text to show how your marvellous machine works. This should include the features you have learnt about – technical/formal language and causal conjunctions – and match the style of the Teacher-Pleaser example. You can present this however you wish. Be sure to send a photo/copy to your teacher once you have finished.
