Hi Year 6

 

Mrs Fowler, Mrs Howell and myself are all missing you and hearing all your exciting news. We hope you are making the most of this extra time off, spending time with your families and doing activities that you enjoy (reading for pleasure, drawing, baking, playing on your game consoles, playing board games).

 

Please remember we would love to hear from as many of you as possible and see some of the great things you have been doing so email (via the school office email)  photos of your diary covers, cakes or biscuits even dinner you might have helped make or just you and family having fun playing together.

 

I will post photos of things I have been doing and if Mrs Howell and Mrs Fowler send me photos of them I will post those too. Come on we need to hear from as many of you as possible so get emailing - (good practise for your computing skills too!)

Easter Challenge Work

Week 10 - Weekly overview

Week 12 - Weekly Overview

Week 13 - Weekly Overview

Week 14

 

This is our last week so we need to be finishing off. Over this week I would like you to complete any pages in your CGP SATs English book including the 'Practise Test' starting on page 70. In addition to this, you need to work through your CGP SATs Maths book and complete anything that has not been set: Fractions, volume,  co-ordinates and the 'Practice Test' at the back.

 

You could also try some more of the art projects from earlier in the term, and then think of any questions you might have about starting at your new school. If you want to email these in maybe we can see if other class members are wondering the same and then maybe I might have some of the answers.

Learning at home………

 

Here are some suggestions of activities that we feel would be beneficial for the pupils to undertake:

 

Read! Read! Read! Please ensure that children are both read to heard read frequently. This can be reading anything ie, magazines, comics, newsround, recipes. The more children read (or are read to) the more words they know and the easier they learn. Whilst children reading independently can be beneficial, it is really important that an adult listens to thm read to check errors – this even applies in years 5 and 6. Please take the time to discuss the story/book, explain unknown words and then try and use them later in the week.

 

Practise number bonds (numbers that you add together to make 10, 20, 100, 1000 and any numbers in between!) Cbeebies/Numberblocks episodes are great for this. If you search number bonds online, there will be lots of activities online for this.

 

Counting – Please take every opportunity to count. Not just in ones (twos, fives, tens – any number)! You can do this in fun ways e.g through movement, cooking, tidying away.

 

Times tables – Please ensure children in Year 2 – 6 are practising these frequently. Knowing times tables has a huge impact on what they can do in Maths. Children who know them are generally better mathematicians. There are a range of games online.

 

Playboard games and card games – talk to them about strategy and logic. Any games that promote discussion, counting or other skills.

 

Cooking or any food preparation, particularly measuring and weighing. This is also a good opportunity to promote new words.

 

Drawing and writing – Take the opportunity for children to draw and/or write notes for others. They could write a story or a book for a younger sibling or relation. They could help you with a shopping list and/or write their own recipe.  They could do some research on the internet and make a non-fiction book or presentation on something they are interested in.

 

Reinforce common sequences e.g days of the week, months of the year. Can they tell you which moth/day comes before/after? Do they know when their birthday is? Can you teach them this?

 

Practical skills – tying shoe laces, buttons, cutting, threading, using a knife and fork. All of these things will help with their handwriting skills.

 

If you have a garden, encourage them to be active. Can they help get the garden ready for spring? Can you plant anything?

 

Keep them active with challenges – e.g how many star jumps in a minute, how long can they balance on one foot for, can they plank? Go Noodle is a good source for videos for children to keep active. Cosmic Yoga videos are available on YouTube.

 

Anything that adds to their wider general knowledge: countries of the world, flags, capital cities, rivers, languages, historical events, knowledge of the local area.

 

Can they make a family tree? How was life different for ancestors?

 

If you are watching films – pause them and discuss them. Why are characters doing certain things? Would you do the same?

You could use these web pages to keep the children busy should the school close or if you self isolate.
