Year 6

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.

 

 

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 to 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!

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.

 

Although the dates don't match up, for this week we would like you to attempt Summer Term Week 3 (W/C 4th May) when you click on the above link, which is all about fractions. Please complete one activity per day from Monday-Friday, including the Friday challenge. You will not need to subscribe in order to access the work for this week.

It's National 'Thank a Teacher' day on Wednesday 20th May wink!! You can find out more here:

Week commencing 11th May 2020

 

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.

We thought we'd try out something a little bit different for English this week, using a Hamilton Trust weekly learning pack. There is a lesson for each day and 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, 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.

SPAG

There are also two more SPAG mats for you to have a go at.

Writing and other VE Day activities

1) The link below takes you to a wartime recipe booklet. Can you find a different wartime recipe online? Write out the instructions for your chosen recipe and have a go at making it. It should be a simple recipe which only uses ingredients you already have in the house.

 

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-h-4750-wartime-recipe-booklet

 

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!

Week commencing Monday 20th April 2020

We hope you are all well, Year 6. We will be posting work up on this page each week until we are back in school together again. Work through what you can. Don't worry if you don't have a printer - you can look at the work on the screen and write your answers on paper. As far as possible, we will put up answer sheets too, so you or your parents / carers can mark your work once complete. Work through this at your own pace and leave time for breaks and plenty of fresh air in the garden or on a daily walk!

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.
