Year 6

Week beginning 13th July 2020

It's our final week of home learning! A huge well done for all the hard work you have put in over the last few months and for coping with a year which did not end as any of us had hoped or planned for. We hope you enjoyed watching the videos we emailed to your parents and carers and wish you all a fabulous summer and all the best for secondary school. Do come and visit us when we are allowed to meet in person again!

 

English

 

Reading

Three reading comprehension activities are below.  Each text is differentiated and about a totally different topic. Work at the level that suits you (one, two or three stars).

SPAG

How many SPAG rules can you remember from the year? Have a go at this assessment to test your knowledge and use the mark scheme to check your answers.

Writing

We've found a selection of writing activities for you this week for you to pick and choose from. Enjoy!

 

1) Riddles

Can you solve these riddles (answers at the bottom of this week's work!)?

 

  1. What has to be broken before you can use it?

 

    2. What five-letter word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it?

 

    3.  What travels around the world but stays in one spot?

 

    4.   What is full of holes but still holds water?

 

This activity sheet has some more riddles on. Have a go at writing some riddles of your own and test them out on someone at home!

2) Letter to your future self

This is a great activity to do and look back on in a year or so.

3) Leavers' Year Book

You might want to fill in some of the pages in this booklet as you think back and reflect on your memories of Peterbrook.

Maths

 

We have set a few maths investigations for your final week of home learning - enjoy!

Transition to secondary school

 

Riddle answers!

Week beginning 6th July 2020

 

English

 

Reading

Three reading comprehension activities are below.  Each text is differentiated and about a totally different topic. Work at the level that suits you (one, two or three stars).

SPAG

This week's work is based on clauses and phrases.

 

Reminder:

A clause is a group of words that contain a subject and a verb. A main clause can act as a sentence on its own. A subordinate clause cannot act as a sentence on its own but still contains a subject and a verb.

 

A phrase is a group of words that form part of a sentence.

Writing

We hope you have fun with the writing task below. You don't have to stick to the cat idea. If you'd like to choose another animal, that's absolutely fine!

Maths

 

All maths work for this week is saved below. The topics is statistics and there is a powerpoint for each day along with worksheets to test children's fluency as well as their reasoning/problem solving. The answers are also at the bottom of the worksheets so you can check progress.

 

There is no need to complete both worksheets but please feel free to do so if you're feeling particularly enthusiastic! The powerpoint should aid your understanding and the worksheets are then differentiated. Generally, children who are working towards the expected standard should complete sheets with the letter 'D' below each question, those working at the expected standard should complete the 'E' questions and those working above expected standard should complete the work with 'GD'. However, the children's understanding can vary from topic to topic so it is not a problem to move up or down a level and complete a different worksheet - it will all help their overall understanding.

 

The following links should help your child with this some of this week's topics:

 

Monday – interpreting line graphs

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WkqfJBfXic

 

Tuesday – drawing line graphs

Thursday – circles

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ni53wpVO2I

 

Friday – interpreting pie charts

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ruc9n6ho3l4

 

*Please note that it is absolutely fine to use a worksheet which is a level below the one at which your child would usually work in school. We know that a lack of feedback for the children is difficult but thank you for working with us during this challenging time. We provide Youtube links, powerpoint and answers in an attempt to help with the home learning process.*

Transition to secondary school

 

We hope you found the transition resources useful last week; here are this week's resources for you to work through:

We love the inspiration we've been getting from the pictures and prompt questions on the 'Once upon a Picture' website. This week, select a picture from the non-fiction link below and try one of the non-fiction writing tasks suggested. There are some fascinating pictures which we hope will give you the inspiration you need.

Transition to secondary school

 

Our PSHE focus over the next few weeks will be on your transition to secondary school. We hope that you have all now been contacted by your secondary school in some way. Some of you may know the form you will be in next year, others may have been sent work and transition activities to work through - it will all vary depending on which secondary school you are going to. We will put up some generic transition documents over the next few weeks to help you as you think ahead. We don't want to duplicate what your secondary schools are doing but do want to make sure you've had the opportunity to think about all the exciting changes that await you!

 

If you are going to Light Hall next year, the school has asked us to pass on this website link which will take you to its dedicated section on Y6/7 transition.

 

https://www.lighthall.co.uk/transition-year-6-into-year-7/

This looks like a great link with some good interactive resources and videos to work through:

 

Week beginning 22nd June 2020

 

Firstly....!

Please ask your parents to check their email for a message from the Year 6 teachers about something exciting that we are planning on putting together for you (the email was sent on 19.6.20). We are hoping you will all want to participate!

 

English

 

Reading

As always, work through as much as you can on the reading activities below this week. The first two are short texts, the third task is differentiated - work at the level that suits you (one, two or three stars).

SPAG

We have included two SPAG mats and a crossword and wordsearch based on some of your key Year 6 spellings.

Writing

We would like you to write a persuasive letter this week. You may choose the topic to write about. Maybe you were struck by the reading comprehension on plastic pollution the week before last and would like to write a persuasive letter to encourage others to use less plastic; maybe you feel moved to write a persuasive letter to the government about current lockdown rules; maybe you would like to write a letter to persuade others to follow lockdown rules more carefully - it is up to you! Below are some examples of persuasive letters as well as a PowerPoint and key word sheets which might help you with the writing process.

Maths

 

All maths work for this week is saved below. The topics are area and perimeter and angles and there is a powerpoint for each day as well as worksheets to test children's fluency as well as their reasoning/problem solving. The answers are also at the bottom of the worksheets so you can check your progress.

 

There is no need to complete both worksheets but please feel free to do so if you're feeling particularly enthusiastic! The powerpoint should aid your understanding and the worksheets are then differentiated.

However, the children's understanding can vary from topic to topic so it is not a problem to move up or down a level and complete a different worksheet - it will all help their overall understanding.

 

The following links should help your child with this some of this week's topics but they do not cover all of the angles work. There is no need for a protractor to be used for this work.

 

Volume of cubes and cuboids:

We provide Youtube links, powerpoint and answers in an attempt to help with the home learning process.*

PSHE

  1. Finish off the PowerPoint and sheets posted last week on wellbeing – just scroll down to the bottom of our posted work for week commencing 15.6.20 to find these again. We hope you are finding these resources useful.
     
  2. If you finish the above, look at the link below. This will take you to a selection of pictures based around topics that all link to PSHE – for example: belonging, feeling different, managing expectations etc. Pick one or a few of the pictures that stand out to you and consider the questions below each picture. You could either write / type out your answers or discuss them with an adult at home if they have the time to do this with you.

 

https://www.onceuponapicture.co.uk/the-collections/the-pshe-collection/

 

We will be posting some activities next week and the following weeks which will help you to think about the transition from primary to secondary school. Your secondary school may even have contacted you with helpful information for the move and if they haven't yet, we are sure they will do soon.

Week beginning 15th June 2020

 

English

 

Reading

As always, work through as much as you can on the reading activities below this week. You may only get through the first activity; you may work through all three! We all work at different rates and have different levels of help available to us so complete what is right for you.

SPAG

You might enjoy this 'Special Agent Training' SPAG game online - give it a go!

In addition, here are two differentiated SPAG mats:

Writing

Here is a story starter sheet. Can you continue to write a gripping and engaging story? Ignore the 30 minute time constraint given - you can spend as long as you have available on it.

Maths

 

All maths work for this week is saved below. The topic is area and perimeter and there is a powerpoint for each day as well as worksheets to test children's fluency as well as their reasoning/problem solving. The answers are also at the bottom of the worksheets so you can check your progress.

Area of a parallelogram:

*Please note that we appreciate that area and perimeter are not easy topics. It is absolutely fine to use a worksheet which is a level below the one at which your child would usually work in school. We know that a lack of feedback for the children is difficult but thank you for working with us during this challenging time. We provide Youtube links, powerpoint and answers in an attempt to help with the home learning process.*

PSHE

 

Look at the 'Health and Wellbeing' PowerPoint. This has a whole range of information and will need to be looked at across a few sessions rather than all at once. We have also put activity sheets that accompany the PowerPoint below. You can work through these over the next two weeks and do share your work with an adult if you are able to as it is great to talk about your thoughts and feelings. You may even be able to look at the PowerPoint together.

Week beginning 8th June 2020

 

English

 

Reading

There are two differentiated comprehensions to have a go at again this week - Plastic Pollution and The Tyger. Remember, one star is the most straightforward version moving to three stars for the more challenging version -  select the level which is right for you. We've put the 'Reading assessment booklet' up again too in case you're looking for more work to do and didn't get a chance to do this one last week. As always, work at your own pace and don't worry if you don't get through it all.

SPAG

We didn't manage to complete the whole of last week's SPAG booklet at school last week so you might not have at home either. If this is the case, have a go at finishing it off this week. We've put it below again. There are also three different activity sheets which require you to use your grammar knowledge and rich vocabulary to 'up-level' (improve) sentences. These are differentiated just like the comprehension activities.

Writing

There were some fabulous pictures and inspiration within the writing work we set you last week so we have decided to revisit this task again this week. You should still have plenty of pictures and tasks to choose from.

 

Visit this link again: 

https://www.onceuponapicture.co.uk/the-collections/the-prediction-collection/ 

 

Select one or two pictures from those given and answer the questions below each picture, trying hard to build up and extend your writing as you move through the questions. 

Maths

 

All maths work for this week is saved below. It is the final week of work on algebra and there is a powerpoint for each day as well as worksheets to test children's fluency as well as their reasoning/problem solving. The answers are also at the bottom of the worksheets so you can check your progress.

 

There is no need to complete both worksheets but please feel free to do so if you're feeling particularly enthusiastic! The powerpoint should aid your understanding and the worksheets are then differentiated. Generally, children who are working towards the expected standard should complete sheets with the letter 'D' below each question, those working at the expected standard should complete the 'E' questions and those working above expected standard should complete the work with 'GD'. However, the children's understanding can vary form topic to topic so it is not a problem to move up or down a level and complete a different worksheet - it will all help their overall understanding of the tricky concept of algebra!

 

*Please note that we appreciate that algebra is a tricky concept. It is absolutely fine to use a worksheet which is a level below the one at which your child would usually work in school. We know that a lack of feedback for the children is difficult but thank you for working with us during this challenging time. We provide the powerpoint and answers in an attempt to help with the home learning process.*

PSHE

 

We hope you enjoyed the PSHE work last week and have added some activity sheets below for this week.

Week beginning 1st June 2020

 

For children who are returning to school this week, it will look a different place to usual due to social distancing rules. A video showing parents and children what school will look like will be posted on the homepage of the school website and on Twitter over the course of the weekend - please take a look at this prior to Monday.

 

We are also hoping to be able to complete some secondary school transition work and will therefore post anything on here in future weeks. We have already been liaising with secondary schools and have provided them with general information about the children (which happens every year) and we know there are some ideas in place from schools about how transition may take place this year.

 

 

English

 

Reading

There are two comprehensions to have a go at which are each differentiated three ways - Alice in Wonderland and Michael Morpurgo. Remember, one star is the most straightforward version moving to three stars for the more challenging version -  select the level which is right for you. If you get through these, have a go at the 'Reading assessment booklet'. There are three texts contained within this so you can always finish this off next week if you run out of time. 

SPAG

This Year 6 booklet is a good revision document and has associated questions alongside teaching points and reminders. You can check your progress against the answer booklet.

Writing

We will focus on prediction within our writing tasks this week.

 

Visit this link: 

https://www.onceuponapicture.co.uk/the-collections/the-prediction-collection/ 

 

Select one or two pictures from those given and answer the questions below each picture, trying hard to build up and extend your writing as you move through the questions. 

 

Maths

 

All maths work for this week is saved below. It is all about algebra (sorry!!) and there is a powerpoint for each day as well as worksheets to test children's fluency as well as their reasoning/problem solving.

 

There is no need to complete both worksheets but please feel free to do so if you're feeling particularly enthusiastic! The powerpoint should aid your understanding and the worksheets are then differentiated. Generally, children who are working towards the expected standard should complete sheets with the letter 'D' below each question, those working at the expected standard should complete the 'E' questions and those working above expected standard should complete the work with 'GD'. However, the children's understanding can vary form topic to topic so it is not a problem to move up or down a level and complete a different worksheet - it will all help their overall understanding of the tricky concept of algebra!

PSHE

Below are some activities to help you consider both possible worries and positives that you may have experienced during this very different time. Those of us in school will be discussing some of these areas this week so it would be great if you could take a look at them at home too. If somebody at home is able to look at the sheets with you either before, during or after you have completed them, that would be fantastic as you will be able to chat about any worries or positive that may have come up. You will all feel differently about the situation and that is fine - you do not have to fill the sheets up completely!

 

We have also included some ideas for some short mindfulness brain breaks which might help you to relax and switch off for a few minutes if this is helpful for you.

 

Exercise!

We know so many of you have been keeping fit by cycling, walking, running, playing football in the garden etc. and we obviously would encourage you to keep this up as much as possible. Exercise is so good for our mental health and all of us adults in the Year 6 team have found we've felt so much better after exercise over the last few months.

Week beginning 25th May 2020

 

Please note that as this week is the half term holiday, we are not expecting any home learning to be carried out. Have a great week and fingers crossed for some more good weather! Keep going Year 6 - we're really proud of you in what would have been the half term you completed your SATs and understand how difficult this situation has been for you all. Keep safe and let us know how you're getting on.

Week beginning 18th May 2020

English

We'll use a Hamilton Trust weekly learning pack again this week. This week's lessons are based around a story called 'Eric' by Shaun Tan. Like last week, all the resources are here for you and there is a lesson for each day with accompanying PowerPoints where needed (it tells you on the daily plan when you need to look at these). We have also included the teaching notes again, just to give you a clearer outline of how the work develops over the week - only look at this document if it helps!

 

There is quite a lot of content included each day so again, do what is right for you. You will find a mixture of reading, writing and SPAG activities to try out, so aim to do a combination of all three of these elements over the week. There is some good revision on noun phrases, pronouns and determiners included.

Maths

 

We would like you to continue using the White Rose resources for all maths lessons this week.

Spread some cheer - an extra opportunity!

 

We have received the letter below from Arden Lodge Care home in Acocks Green, asking us to write to their residents as they are unable to see their friends or relatives during the lockdown. A letter from you would bring a smile and cheer to someone's day. One resident, Ray, sent us a painting of a rainbow and another sent us an Easter card.

 

If you would like to take part please write a letter, draw a picture or make a card and send it in to school by royal mail or come along to school and post your item in our postbox (we'll use our Christmas one) by the wooden entrance gates - remember to keep 2m apart if you meet anyone else using our school postbox by Wednesday 20th May.

 

To keep everyone safe please DO NOT write your home address on anything. Please use the school address and sign the letter with your first name only.

 

We will collect all the letters, pictures and cards you send to us and send them all together to Arnold Lodge.

Writing and other VE Day activities

2) Have a look at this link which takes you to a PowerPoint with some information on VE Day as well as other VE Day activities. You may well have found out a lot more about the day yourself from watching the news this week. We didn't get on to researching the events around VE Day and the end of WW2 in school before we left. Can you find out how WW2 ended in Europe and then around the world? Choose how to present your findings. This could be a poster, a PowerPoint, a video report, a chronological report - it's entirely up to you! Can you present your findings to somebody at home? It would be fantastic to see your reports when we're all back together so keep them safe!

  • Have a go at the following comprehensions via this link: Earthquakes and Rosa Parks. These are differentiated so just pick one version of the text and questions. The 1 star version is the most straightforward; the 3 star version is the most challenging.

You can brush up on your SPAG skills via kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk. You were given logon details within the packs we sent home. Go to Year 6 / GPS then within this, you will find plenty of tasks linked to all areas of grammar.

 

Writing

Once Upon a Picture is a free website with lots of inspiration for writing. Have a look at ‘Angry Ants’ via this link this week. Try answering the questions below the picture and have a go at the writing task (‘short narrative’, ‘slow writing’ or both!).

An additional activity for this week – time capsule

You could create your own time capsule (or if you would prefer, a poster / booklet / scrapbook etc) to record this period of time, which will be looked back on as a major event in our history. Below are some resources and sheets you can fill in to help you remember this time. You could also look for newspaper articles to add to this and you could take photographs of your day to day activities. You might want to write a poem or possibly draw a picture which sums up your feelings or shows activities that you have done whilst you haven’t been at school. You decide how you would like to record and store these memories – we want you to be able to look back at this in years to come and remember this very different time in your life.

IMPORTANT UPDATE - 20TH MARCH 2020

Year 6 home learning – March 2020

 

Resource folders

All Year 6 pupils have been given a white folder containing a variety of English and Maths tasks. We would like all pupils to complete these over the next few weeks and bring them back into school when we re-open.

 

Classroom Secrets

We have set each child up with their own username and password to log on to:

kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk

 

Log on to the home screen once in the kids section and click on Year 6. Here you will find a variety of online tasks to work through relating to maths and English. Each child should work through these at their own pace. Classroom Secrets is intending to add more resources to this section if required.

 

Additional support and resources

The site www.amazingeducationalresources.com has a large variety and list of websites available to parents, many of which support the wider curriculum.

 

Twinkl is offering parents and carers access to all its resources with a One Month Ultimate Membership, totally free of charge, so your child/children can still have access to a range of worksheets and educational activities during this period.
