Whilst we are off school, Miss Killick and I have decided to keep your learning relevant by creating learning activities linked to Global Issues – there are 17 in total. We will post one a week for you to have a go at. Please open the document and try the three activities; you can do them with your whole family. Thanks, Miss W and Miss K
We hope you are all ok and having a lovely time with your families, whilst doing some work, alongside the adjustment to staying home.
Please use the link below to access Year 6 Maths and English activities. The site is the scheme we follow in school; it has useful videos and daily lessons.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in contact with us. We look forward to sharing all your work when we get back to school and on Seesaw in the meantime. If you do not have your Seesaw login details, we can provide these; it is important for us all to stay in touch to share our work and to stay connected.
Take care, Miss W and Miss K
I hope you are all having a lovely time in your gardens, enjoying the sunshine. It would be lovely to have our Year 6 children all sharing their work on Seesaw. Please can you start uploading things if you haven’t already.
If you need your login details, please send me an email: email@example.com and I will forward them to you straight away. Feel free to contact me for Timetable Rock Star details too.
Stay safe everyone,
Hello Year 6,
We hope that you are all well and enjoying the beautiful weather that we are having!
By now I am sure that you are breaking your days up by having a look at some of the tasks we set you last week (reattached at the bottom if you need another copy). It has been wonderful to see some of you creating tasks of your own too – you’re very inventive! Feel free to magpie each others’ ideas and ask if you need any help…we are here to support you.
Please make sure you are uploading messages or pictures if you can on to Seesaw – we would love to see what you are all getting up to!
Keep safe and keep smiling,
Miss Killick and Miss Walters
If you are looking for extra activities to complete alongside your other tasks, why not try these:
- 10 Day Drawing Challenge: draw something using only your favourite colour (shading is the key) and describe it using a synopsis. Let your imagination go wild.
- High Five: draw around your hand, add pictures and words of things you like, to each finger of the hand. Challenge yourself to turn any negative thoughts into positive ones.
- Get outside: find something in your garden that you haven’t seen before (it could be an insect or a plant, etc.). Find out what it is, then create a fact book. How many new things can you discover in a week.
- Poetry: go on a metaphor and simile walk; this could be a walk around your garden or house. Turn these ideas into a poetry masterpiece.
Year 6 – Home Learning
Task 1: Read daily for at least 20 minutes. Ask someone at home to check that you have understood what has happened by asking you questions. You could also ask them questions about your book too!
Task 2: Practise TT Rockstars daily for at least 20 minutes (write your login down so that it is safe).
Task 3: Write a short diary entry so that you can update the class about what you have been up to!
Task 4: Each day, complete one ’10-minute test’ per CGP book (maths, reading and SpAG).
Task 5: Complete an A4 profile for somebody you feel is a ‘modern day hero’ e.g. Greta Thunberg.
Task 6: Write a short story that includes a villain. You can base this on a character from a book or a film if it helps!
Task 7: Create yourself calculations using the digits 0-9: column addition (4 digit), column subtraction (4 digit), long multiplication (4 digit by 2 digit) and long division (4 digit by 2 digit).
Task 8: Complete an Electricity Fact File. What do you know? Include definitions, labelled diagrams and explanations as to how you think electricity works!
Task 9: Write a letter to Year 5 explaining what they should expect from Year 6 next year! Try to include the features from our Year 6 Writing Checklist.
Task 10: Draw and label a map of your local area. Use symbols and a key. Can you create questions to go with your map?
Practise the statutory spelling words daily – see if somebody in your family can test you on them!
Each day, when you are completing your tasks, try to get up and move around every half an hour! This could be a simple walk to stretch your legs or include exercises too: star jumps, knee tucks, press ups, sit ups, tummy crunches, burpees or even the plank! Feel free to add in your own and draw diagrams of what you have been up to!
- Cooking! Can you make something delicious? Take a photograph or draw a picture!
- Playing games! Can you play a board game? Or even a game of hide and seek! Who was the winner?
- Write a song! It could be a song that will help you/the class to revise?
- Artwork! Can you complete a still life sketch of an object in your house? Try to pick something inspirational!
Your children will be familiar with the work they carry out in school related to current affairs and news around the world from our Picture News lessons. This learning pack is around the theme of ‘Space Tourism’ with a whole host of activities you can carry out at home.
