## Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 page. Below you can find out about what we have been learning in class as well as links to home learning activities.

During the Autumn term, our topic is "We'll Meet Again", which is all about about World War Two.

We will discover how the war started and construct a timeline of key events. We will learn about British leaders, Chamberlin and Churchill, the Battle of Britain and the Normandy Landings as well as learning about life on the home front including rationing and what it was like to be an evacuee.

__Friday 19th October - Half Term Home Learning!__

__1. __Solve the following problems using the short division method. Remember to write out the multiples of the divisor to help you, e.g. for 453 ÷ 7, I would write out the multiples of 7 (0, 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63, 70, 77, 84).

4536 ÷ 4 = ? | 5567 ÷ 6 = | 6436 ÷ 7 = | 8334 ÷ 8 = |

3456 ÷ 12 = | 6549 ÷ 13 = | 2210 ÷ 15 = | 5522 ÷ 16 = |

3434 ÷ 11 = | 3434 ÷ 12 = | 3434 ÷ 13 = | 3434 ÷ 14 = |

2. *How Did You Do It?*

Look at the following calculations. Take some time to think about the way in which you would solve each calculation. Write down the method that you used to work out each one. Be careful to write each step of your workings!

a) 19 x 24 = b) 198 + 997 =

c) Half of 57.6 = d) 3841 - 665.3 =

e) 5.2 ÷ 4 = f) 101 x 16 x 4 =

__Friday 12th October__

** **1. Use written multiplication method to solve these calculations:

1543 x 23 | 2656 x 34 | 4421 x 33 |

5446 x 56 | 6212 x 62 | 4302 x 45 |

12334 x 34 | 22431 x 42 | 29877 x 47 |

2. Now use powers of 10 to solve these calculations:

4453 x 50 | 3253 x 400 |

22433 x 30 | 44523 x 300 |

**Friday 28th September**

1. Order the following numbers from smallest to largest:

a) 3,506,771 ; 3,510,702 ; 3,051,221 ; 3,351,000 ; 3,500,977

b) 6,202,001 ; 6,022,011 ; 6,210,212 ; 6,203,002 ; 6,215,422

c) 8,677,065 ; 8,678,212 ; 8,705,011 ; 8,099,944 ; 8,755,099

Now create a number that is smaller that the smallest in each sequence.

2. Represent each number in 2, 4, 5, and 10 equal parts.

*e.g. 2,000,000 = 1,000,000 + 1,000,000*

*2,000,000 = 500,000 + 500,000 + 500,000 + 500,000*

*2,000,000 = 400,000 + 400,000 + 400,000 + 400,000 + 400,000*

*2,000,000 = 200,000 + 200,000 + 200,000 + 200,000 + 200,000 +*

*200,000 + 200,000 + 200,000 + 200,000 + 200,000*

a) 5,000,000

b) 8,000,000

c) 10,000,000

d) 4,600,000

**Friday 21st September**

- Represent each of the following numbers in 3 different ways, as we learnt about in class.

a) 243,651 | b) 788,203 | c) 901,044 |

d) 2,421,610 | e) 3,102,453 | f) 8,081,225 |

2. Write the value of the underlined digit.

a) 204,453 | b) 255,201 | c) 1,501,133 |

d) 4,505,221 | e) 5,122,511 | f) 5,005,005 |

**Home Learning - English**** **

**Friday 7th December**

**Discussion Texts**** **

Click on the link below and read the article about animals in zoos. As you can see, it lots of important points have been made but it still doesn't read very well and seems a little clunky! Your task is to rewrite it in order to improve how it sounds. Think about:

- signpost words
- generalisers
- formal tone / third person
- added information/ specific detail
- embedded clauses to describe the nouns
