You will need 7 objects or counters and an opponent to play against. Place the seven objects or counters in a pile and take turns to take away either one or two of them. The person who takes the last object or counter wins. Swap who goes first, and keep playing until you work out a winning strategy.

Good morning, Class 6!

 

I hope that you are all well. I am very impressed with the work that you sent me yesterday – it was lovely to see what you have been doing! 

 

I hope that you are looking forward to completing some more exciting home learning tasks today!

 

Wake Up, Shake Up - Supermovers

 

Follow this link to the BBC Supermovers website where you can revise your knowledge of negative numbers whilst keeping fit: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-maths-negative-numbers/z6chd6f

 

Maths

 

Revise your coordinates knowledge by playing ‘Desert Island Treasure Hunt’ using the attached resource. If you do not have a printer, try drawing your own treasure map with a coordinate grid!

 

English

 

Follow this link to a book explaining COVID-19 and social distancing for children: https://www.flipsnack.com/CSKidsBooks/what-s-going-on.html

 

You will notice that the second and fourth line of each verse rhyme and that it reads like a piece of poetry. 

 

Have a go at writing your own poem about your thoughts, feelings and experiences over the past two weeks. Add some colourful illustrations, just like the book.

 

I look forward to reading your poetry.

 

Creative Afternoon

Maya Temples

 

 

Maya temples were often pyramid shaped but you will also be able to spot other shapes used in their construction.

 

Your task this afternoon is to design and make your own model of a Maya temple.

  • How do you think you could do this?
  • What materials could you use?
  • How can you make sure that your structure is sturdy?

 

Once you have the basic structure of your temple, you can add the details. Interestingly, Maya temples had a flat top. All Maya pyramids would have had steps leading to the top chamber. Think about how you could create these steps. 

 

You could use cardboard boxes, lego, building blocks or anything at all that you have access to at home! 

 

If you have already had a go at creating a 3D Maya temple, can you challenge yourself to make one using different materials this time?

 

I look forward to seeing what you produce!

Creative Afternoon

The first people to savour the taste of chocolate were the Maya. They called it the drink of kings.

 

Research chocolate and its significance to the Maya people. Create a poster, short film, information leaflet or fact file to share what you find.

 

Some questions you may like to consider:

  • Where does chocolate come from?
  • When did the Maya first discover it?
  • What was the Maya name for it?
  • Why was it so important to them?

 

Rewarding Reading

Enjoy a book! You could use the MyON website, Read Theory or choose a book that you have at home. Sit down, relax and enjoy some DEAR time!
