Topic challenges

 

Below is a grid with 5 challenges on - one for each day this week. You may select which challenge you complete on which day as long as by the end of the week, you have completed them all. Please remember to send me photos of your wonderful work to year6@maltese.essex.sch.uk as (with your permission) I would love to upload it on our class page :)

 

Challenge 1: Science

 

Our new science topic is 'Light and Sight' which is one of my favourites and I hope you enjoy it too :) 

To begin with I would like you to think about where light comes from - light sources. Below, I have attached a sheet which has a range of images on. I would like you to make a table in your books and sort the images into the following groups: light source/not light source. 

Remember: A light source is anything that makes light, whether natural and artificial. Natural light sources include the Sun and stars. Artificial light sources include lamps and televisions.  Many objects simply reflect light from a light source.

Challenge: now sort the objects into manmade or natural light sources.

 

Challenge 2: Topic

 

Our main topic this term is Mission Possible - all about spies and detectives. If you scroll down on our class page, there is an overview of what we will be learning :)

This week, I would like you to start a leaflet/informative PowerPoint presentation which you will add to as the weeks go by.

Begin by researching the following two questions: What is a spy? What does a spy do?

You should use the internet to find the information and then write it up into your own words to make it more unique. 

You can do this on paper/in a book/on the computer or in whichever way you wish as long as it grabs the reader's attention! 

We will be adding to these as the weeks go on so use the time wisely to make it as detailed as possible rather than moving on to other areas.

 

Challenge 3: RE 

 

This half term you will be exploring Humanism. Mrs Stotter has provided your work for this lesson and I have attached it below. Open the PowerPoint and read through the green, amber and red challenges on the first slide and then complete one. 

 

 

Challenge 4: Art

 

As our new topic is all about spies and detectives, I thought it would be fun to link our artwork to this. Fingerprints are often found at crime scenes and are useful in helping solve a case as they are unique for each individual - no two finger prints are the same. For art this week, I would like you to create a piece of art which relates to fingerprints. I have left this task open ended as I am interested to see all of your brilliant ideas, however I have uploaded some example images below to give you some inspiration! There is no right or wrong answer in art so be creative! 

 

FUN FACT QUESTION: WHICH ANIMAL HAS FINGERPRINTS WHICH ARE MOST SIMILAR TO HUMANS? 

Challenge 5: PE

 

CSSP (Chelmsford School Sports Partnership)  who we work closely with have sent a range of brilliant activities that can be completed from the comfort of your home. Each week I will upload a different activity for you to complete - why not get your parents/siblings involved!
