Afternoon Message - Friday 3rd April 2020
Good afternoon Year 6! I hope you have had a really enjoyable Friday and have completed your learning to a high standard. Thank you to Zainab and Bentley who have both sent in examples of their work. You can find this all under the 'Celebrate Our Learning' page within the home learning section of the Year 6 page. I would love to see some of your Zentangle patterns and share these too!
As next week would be the start of the Easter holidays, the home learning you will find on the website over the next two weeks will be a little different. You will still find daily activities to complete, although there will be less than we have been uploading over the past two weeks. We have tried to prepare activities which are open ended and give you opportunities to be creative and use your imagination. Of course, you can still access your Bug Club, TT Rock Stars, Purple Mash, MyMaths etc. and complete any other additional home learning, if you have spare time.
There will be no daily messages throughout the Easter holiday period. I will still be available via the contact me form on the Year 6 page and you can email me at email@example.com however I may not be able to answer immediately. After the Easter holiday we will return to this normal format.
I hope you all have a lovely few weeks and I look forward to speaking to you all again after the Easter break!
Morning Message - Friday 3rd April 2020
Happy Friday everybody! I hope you have had a really enjoyable week. The weather is set to improve over the next few days so hopefully you can enjoy the sun!
Today, you get the opportunity to begin your Zentangle challenge during the art session. Zentangles are great fun and once you start, you won't want to stop! It would be great to see some pieces of artwork emailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can upload them onto the website.
As we are ending our second week of home learning, I just wanted to say a huge well done to all of you that have made an effort to work at home and complete your home learning activities. I also wanted to say a huge thank you to all the parents, carers and other family members that have supported our wonderful students through this challenging time. Keep up the hard work!
Read for at least 20 minutes. This could be your school reading book, a home book, Bug Club or another text you enjoy. Identify any new and unknown vocabulary and find the definitions. Make sure you’re answering the bug club quizzes properly, as your teachers can see the answers and respond to you.
Complete 'Charge of the Light Brigade' comprehension. Remember to underline the question words and to use evidence from the text. Make sure you use your skimming and scanning techniques to help you answer the questions quickly and accurately.
Complete the daily Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) PE lesson.
Visit his YouTube channel here:
Visit the White Rose Maths website here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/
Please complete Lesson 5. You can watch the video first to help you, then complete the worksheet and mark it. If you are finding it difficult, re-watch the video or look for other online tutorials (Khan Academy and Mathantics are good places to start).
You should have finished your non-chronological report by now. Your task for today is to edit and improve your writing. Make sure you check the success criteria (saved in Tuesday's folder) and ensure you have included everything. Read through your work carefully to fix any errors - it may be helpful to read it out loud or ask someone else in your house to read it to you.
Practise your weekly spellings. Copy them into your home learning book and write their definitions. Complete the SPaG activity in the folder below. There is a Powerpoint which you can work through to show you how to answer the questions. You can then work on the varied fluency questions. Select either 'Developing', 'Expected' or 'Greater Depth' depending on how confident you are with the topic. You can then mark your work and move onto the application and reasoning sheet.
Begin working through the Zentangle challenge below. Work through the first few challenges. You can continue working on this across the Easter break!
