PRIMARY 6 MATHS

Hello everyone, today we are continuing to look at our volume and capacity topic.  Have a look at the video linked below.

After watching the videos you could give some of the Volume games on Topmarks a go. These will help to develop your understanding.

Can you find 3 items around the house and list the volume/capacity of the items ?

1.

2.

3.

If you manage this you could try the mild OR hot pages that are attached. This will look at a variety of measurements we have covered. Some of this sheet requires you to match up items, you could use your jotter to do this or if you are doing it in a word document just put the measurements next to each other.  Any issues then please let me know!

 

The Inspired By Story!

story writing checklist

Instructions

You are so lucky!

 

I am so excited for this task as I know just how good a group of Primary 6 writers that we are blessed with.

I’m taking the shackles off. I’m only going to give you one instruction.

 

  1. Write from something that you know!

What I mean by this is think of the stories that you have grown up with. We are lucky to be surrounded by quality literature in Bishopton Primary School. Take elements of a story that you love and see if you can create a new tale.

It could be the missing pages from the Diary of a Wimpy Kids, or forgotten tales from Hogswarts, or even Olaf vs Summer (aka Not So Frozen!).

 

Now this can be typed or handwritten. We only ask that you remember all of those previous writing lessons.

Can I see paragraphs, hyperbole, metaphors, alliteration, personification, correct punctuation… don’t waste an opportunity to add exuberant, vibrant vocabulary.

 

Really enjoy the process of creating something.

 

A very jealous,

 

Mr M

 

p.s your teachers are on hand to support your creations so run those ideas past us and ask if you need reminding of anything.

Maths – Volume

Volume – is a measurement of how much space is taken up by a 3 dimensional (3D) shape.

The units used in measuring liquid volumes are millilitres and litres.

 

Have a look at the website below to support your understanding of Volume.

Please complete the textbook pages which are linked below.

 

I would also like you to log into SumDog and play for at least 20minutes. I will be playing along with you if I can!

Friction Investigation

Due tomorrow at 11:59 PM

Hello curious minds,

 

Ever wondered why the tyre on your bike slows down if you are not pedalling. Or why it is harder to slow down when running in new trainers?

Well today you get to indulge your curiosity. I would like you to watch this video on what friction is and then with your parents permission you may want to try one of the experiments yourself.

After that I would like you to complete the attached worksheet and then hand it in to this assignment.

 

Happy experimenting,

Personal Project – P6A

Instructions

Good Morning, for the rest of the week once all your other tasks are complete, I would like you to complete a personal project. This is completely your choice but it must be something that makes you Happy. We are all trying to keep our spirits up and I thought sharing what makes us all happy would help. Please follow the outline below.

Tuesday: Choose the topic of your personal project. Remember it must be something that makes you happy when you think about it. Once you have chosen this then you can put together a mood board.

Open up a word document and fill it with pictures that link to your chosen topic. These will come in handy later so make sure to fill the page.

Add a brief three/ four sentence paragraph explaining what your topic is and why you choose it. Maybe say why it makes you happy.

Hand this in on the assignment page by uploading the document there.

 

Wednesday: Compose a poem about your chosen subject.

Make sure to choose your words carefully. I’m looking for up levelled vocabulary.

Thesaurus may be required.

Try to express with your words the feeling of joy that inspired you to choose this subject.

These poems are to by uploaded to the FILES tab inside the poetry folder there. Try dragging your poem pic/ document from your desktop to the folder.

 

Thursday: Gather information for a presentation. I would like you to use your class notebook to store the information. Remember that you already have a whole bunch of photos from Tuesdays task.

 

Friday: Time to put together a PowerPoint presentation on your chosen subject.

Think about transitions, colour theory and not overloading slides. 4 to 5 key points on any given slide. 2 to 4 pictures. The poem and the mood board should help you in this editing process. This should be uploaded to the assignment page when completed.

 

This should hopefully help you to navigate with my help around the Teams Classroom.

 

All questions welcome. Use the Teams post board, chat and email to enquire about anything.

Good Luck!

Miss Altman

 

Indefinite Articles – Grammar

Indefinite article

 

Good  day to you Grammarians,

 

Instructions

What is an article?

an article is an adjective. Like adjectives, articles help nouns.

English has two articles: the and a/an.

 

Whats the difference?

The is used to refer to specific or particular nouns. This is the DEFINITE article

 

a/an is used to modify non-specific or non-particular nouns. This is the INDEFINITE article.

 

For example, if I say, “Let’s read the book,” I mean a specific book. If I say, “Let’s read a book,” I mean any book rather than a specific book.

 

Today we are looking at indefinite articles, please complete the worksheet using the correct grammar (a or an). The worksheet will help you.

 

Remember that you can type your answers on the sheet and then upload this as your evidence.
