w/c 21.09.20

Are you working from home this week? Here are some ideas which are similar to those we are working on in school that you might want to spend some time on.

Spelling: We are currently working on strengthening our visual memories and any of these games will help (and they’re lots of fun too!).

Maths: Follow the links

English: Read for 15 minutes each day and record any words you needed to clarify with a definition.  We will be writing a narrative based on ‘The Discontented Fish’. I’d like you to change the main character to a pupil starting in Y7 who goes from being a big ‘fish’ in Y6 to a little ‘fish’ in the new secondary school. Think carefully about sentence structure and punctuation, please!

PE: Choose a PE with Joe to complete.

Topic: This week we will be recapping our geography skills by locating Greece and all of the other countries you have studied over the years. Think back over all of the topics you have studied at school. Which places can you locate? I’d be highly impressed if you could locate all of the continents as well as Egypt, Brazil, Germany, Baghdad, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Italy!

Science: Please follow the instructions on the video.

Science: Please follow the instructions on the video.

RE: Think about how the world was created. What do you believe happened? This link will help you to remember the story of creation from the Bible. Write a paragraph to explain what you think happened.

Working from home?

Hello Year 6 😊 As a couple of you are at home at the moment, I thought I’d pop some ideas and links on here for you to work on if you’re able to! I will update each week so that you have similar activities to what we’re working on in school. From Monday, there will also be resources on Teams for you but don’t worry about that too much right now as there’s plenty here for you to get your teeth into!

Spelling: We are currently working on strengthening our visual memories and any of these games will help (and they’re lots of fun too!).

Maths: This week, we are focusing on sharpening our mental recall and becoming super-speedy again with times tables facts. Hit the button is always a favourite or we still have access to some games on Sumdog. You can also go on Education City (choose any activities you fancy this week). Friday is CLIC/SAFE/Learn Its day so complete them online using the same login details as last year.

English: Please read your reading book for at least 15 minutes each day and remember to clarify any words you’re not sure of. You can also access Read Theory using last year’s login details.

Topic: Please follow the instructions on the video.

Science: Please follow the instructions on the video.

RE: Last week, we started thinking about how awesome our world is. We looked at the natural world and will eventually be investigating different people’s beliefs about creation and our responsibilities as humans to protect our world. This week, write ten big questions that you would ask someone who has all of the answers. They might be questions that no-one currently has (or will ever have) the answer to. For example, Why don’t stars talk? Why is the sky blue? Why do humans make the same mistakes? Do spiders feel love? What will my future be?

Try to watch Newsround every day.

Post us a message on the blog.

I’m hoping that’s plenty to be getting on with for this week but if you want more, post me a message and let me know! If you need any login details re-sending, let me know too! See you soon 😊

Last day, lovely Year 6s! Hopefully, you watched the end of term service last night but if not, you can watch it here. You were all absolute superstars!! 💖

Here are your tasks for today. All of them are explained in further detail in today’s Notebook. 

  • You guessed it….post a message on here to tell us what your favourite part of this week has been.
  • Make a plan for the summer holidays.
  • Say goodbye to your Priory teachers @11am.
  • Class novel meeting at 1pm: We know that Charice has been defeated but how will our friends in the tower fare?
  • Online Good News straight after class novel.

My goodbye to you is here.

You have all earned yourself a well-deserved break. I am so proud of you for a million different reasons. Please check back in regularly to let me know how you are all getting on – over the summer but long into the future as well.
