A mystery to learning

Hi Year 6,

I hope you are enjoying the learning in Year 6. Yes its hard but it is there to challenge you and prepare you for secondary school.

We have started the term looking at different mysteries in Literacy, large numbers in Maths, The Black Death in Topic and classifying in Science.

1 Your first mission is to tell me what are the features of a mystery story and the purpose. I want you to have a look at this picture below and write me an opening remembering what you have learned?

house%201

2 In Maths we have been looking at 8 and 9 digit numbers. Can you order these numbers starting from the smallest to the largest? Then I would like you to choose 2 numbers and see if you multiply them?

1,924,681,101   999,856,632   936,714,543   937,918,642   965,710,106   932,547,909   918,675,432

3 In Topic we have been looking at The Black Death so lets see how much we can remember

a What was the Black Death?

b Where do historians think that the Black Death started?

c What did people do when the disease started to kill people?

d What is the Black Death called today?

4 In Science we have been classifying plants and animals.

a Can you name 2 vertebrates that live on land and water?

b Is an Arachnid a vertebrate or invertebrate?

c Annelids have bodies that are divided into segments. What are they?

And finally in Year 6 White our learning journey is based around the game called Cluedo. Each week I will give you clues and see if you can solve the mystery. There will be a small prize each week for the first person that tells me. This includes you 6 Red.

So clue one, These are colourful and have lots of words in them. They open the imagination and you can gain so much knowledge from them. They are hard and soft. Where in the classroom would you find them?

There is a lot of work here for you but we are challenging you year 6. I will be checking and i want you all to have a go.

Have fun

    The Black Death was caused by a bacteria called yersinia pestis and this was carried by fleas.The fleas give it to the rats and the rats pass it on to us.

    Historians thought that the plague came from the cats and dogs so the Mayor of London ordered for the cats and dogs to be destroyed.Actually it was caused by the rats so now there weren’t ant predators to eat the rats, the plague spreaded.

    In those days, people were wearing protective clothing to stop getting the plague.When people had the plague, people left them inside and painted a red cross on their door.

    The Black Death is known as the bubonic plague.

    The purpose of a mystery story is to create tension

    It was a windy blood curdling night when a young girl began to wonder to a forest she had never seen before. She came across a old , mysterious house. It looked cadaverous. She was not in control of her feet, the controlled her body. As she
    looked up , in her head she could see the words DEATH written all over it . Her feet tiptoed to the nerve racking house and gave the door a little knock.KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK!. Suddenly a light flickered on then off. She began to regret her walk through the forest. After that someone or something opened the door….

    Topic: The Black Death
    The Black Death was a cauntaigious disease the was easily spread around the whole of London. The Black Death first started in Central Asia in 1338 . It then made its way onto China and India in 1346.

    When people began to die from the plague, people recomended to kill all cats and dogs however that made the sisuttion worse because rats are cats pray and the number of rats increased. So that means more people caught the Black Death .
    Today the Black Death is called the plague.
