We continue to use White Rose Maths and the teaching videos remain at https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/
We are using the resources for week 10 (W/B 29th June)
The worksheets and answers for Monday to Thursday can be found below.
This week you will be finding the area, perimeter and volume of shapes.
On Friday please continue with your CGP revision book completing a topic of your choice in both the standard and advanced book.
Over the next three weeks, taking us up until the end of term, we would like you to research and present your own project: Project America.
We have been learning about the geography of South America and about some significant people and events in the history of North America.
We would like you to find out about some other aspects of the history of the different parts of America. For example the Mayan or Aztec civilisations or America's role in the 'Space Race'.
You will also find out about the geography of North America. That could include rivers and mountains, lakes and National Parks. You could find out about the different states of the USA.
You can choose how you present you work.
- Fact files
- PowerPoint presentations
- Non-chronological reports

This week our RE learning is based on an excellent resource recommended to us by our education colleagues at Chester Diocese. The Diocese of Canterbury produced this PowerPoint for children and families to use as a home worship resource. Look at the PowerPoint presentation, then tell your family what you have learned.
We are going to focus on the message on slide 5.
Challenge 1: Read the Bible passage from James chapter 2 on the slide. Take some time to reflect on this passage. Answer the three questions on the slide.
Challenge 2: Complete challenge 1. When we treat a person or group better than another, we call this “partiality”. Can you think of an example of partiality that you have seen in the world today, or in recent history? (It might help you if you think about the learning we have doing recently about the Civil Rights Movement.)
Challenge 3: Listen to Mark Yule speaking about this Bible reference and partiality on this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1u7LF3F2wY (Listen to the first 7 minutes 30 seconds).
Imagine you were the receptionist in the story about the man who wanted to donate to the church. What would you have done? Would you have stuck to your principles about using polite language and being respectful, or would you have agreed to “get the big fat pig right now”? Remember, the donation might have been used to do a lot of good for others. Explain your reasoning and give other examples of conflicting demands on our principles and values.
