Afternoon Message - Monday 20th April 2020
Good afternoon Year 6! I hope you have all enjoyed your first day of the Summer Term!
I am sure you have planned your diary in detail, ready to begin writing it tomorrow. Ms Iqbal has been checking your music home learning on Yumu and has passed on the information to the rest of the Year 6 teachers. We are particularly impressed with the following children and would like to give them a shout-out:
Wania (Gold) has achieved 450 points and has completed 100% of the plastic topic!
Riya (Ouro) has achieved 710 points and has completed 100% of the plastic topic!
Well done to both of these girls for working hard on Yumu over the past few weeks. We will be having a music session on Wednesday, so hopefully lots of you will be increasing the amount of points you have achieved.
Have a restful, relaxing evening and remember to be in bed nice and early tonight, ready to wake up tomorrow for another day of learning!
Morning Message - Monday 20th April 2020
Good morning Year 6! I really hope you have had a wonderful, relaxing two weeks over the Easter holiday. I know lots of you have been completing our daily challenges and I have seen some fantastic work which children have sent to me. Particular shout-outs have to go to Aiste, who created some beautiful pebble art, and Zainab, who produced an incredible short film about recycling. You can view this amazing work on our 'Celebrating Learning' page.
Today, we are back to our structured home learning which you are familiar with. Your writing task this week is to write a diary entry based on a day in your life across the Easter holiday. I look forward to reading them towards the end of the week!
Have a great day! Remember, you can message me whenever you need to using the contact form on the main page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Complete the first section ('The Holiday') of the reading comprehension test and mark it.
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 One (Vertically Opposite Angles). 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).
This week we would like you to write a diary entry about one of your days of the Easter holiday. Try to think of a day which has been eventful over the past two weeks. Maybe you video called a family member or friend. Perhaps you did a fun art project with your parents. Maybe you went for a bike ride with your big brother. Plan out you diary entry for the day of your choosing. Use the attached planning template and success criteria to help you, if you need them! You can use your own planning structure if you would prefer.
Practise your weekly spellings. Copy them into your home learning book and write their definitions.
Complete the SPaG activity 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.
We will now be looking at our newest (and final!) science topic for Year 6. This topic is 'Evolution and Inheritance'. We would like you to draw out a KWL grid in your home learning book and fill in the first two columns (the K and W). The K stands for 'Know'and it is where you need to list everything you already know about Evolution and Inheritance. The W stands for 'Want' and it is where you should list all of the things you want to find out about Evolution and Inheritance. The L stands for 'Learnt' and this column should not be filled in today. Instead, you should fill this in as you go through your science lessons this half term. Every time you learn something new, you can add it to your L column.
See the document below for an example of how to lay out your KWL grid.
