Hope you've had a fun day of learning!  I would like  for you now to try and upload your work using the seesaw app.  Your parents should have received a 12 digit code via email today. Your  teachers will then be able to see the amazing learning that you have completed today. If your parents haven't received this code, then they need to contact the school office, office@gascoigne.co.uk.

 

I have looked at all of your Yumu activities and selected the Music Champion for this week... the Champion will receive a gold certificate via email. The Reading Champion will also be announced tomorrow.

 

Hope you have a good evening.

Morning Message - Thursday 30th April 2020

 

Good Morning, everyone. I hope that you and your families are safe and well. What have been doing with your spare time? I have exercised most days since I last saw you and have taken up a new hobby-baking!

 

You are editing and improving your writing today. Ensure that you use online dictionaries and thesauruses to enable you to check your spellings and up level your vocabulary. See the writing section below for further information. I have noticed that children are not using the correct sentence punctuation in messages that you are sending to your teachers, so please ensure that you really focus on this. Just a reminder that, all writing MUST be punctuated correctly!

 

 For Spag, you are using devices to build cohesion. Think back to lessons that we completed at school on building cohesion. You can also link this to the appropriate section in your CGP books.

 

In the RE lesson today, you will be learning about Religious groups in Barking and Dagenham, in 2018 then you will choose a religious leader from your community ( this could be the person that leads worship in your religion or from another religion) and prepare some questions to ask them. Tip: Refer to the job descriptions of an Imam and a priest to guide your questions. Think about all of the  duties that your chosen leader needs to carry out to fulfil their role, this will help you to focus your questions. Don't forget to include your ?

 

Today while you are completing your home learning, I will be going through your Music folders to see who has managed to complete the Music activities on Yumu and earned the most coins in Y6, so far.  They are fun and easy to complete and are enabling you to Listen to and find out about some artists from the Inspirational Women’s Timeline. 

 

I'll let you know what I find out later!
