Afternoon Message - Tuesday 24th March 2020

 

Good afternoon Year 6! I hope you have had an enjoyable, productive day. 

 

I really enjoyed reflecting on today's PSHE challenge, which was to list three things we love about each member of our family. I thought about my mum, who always strives to succeed in everything she attempts. She is also extremely loving and cares about our whole family deeply and always does what she thinks is best for us. I would love to hear some of your reflections!

 

Many of you contacted me, asking if you could have a copy of the Floodland book, which is sadly something we cannot do at the moment. However, we have studied the book for weeks now and you should be able to complete this week's writing tasks without having the text in front of you. 

 

We are still working on ways for you to easily share your work with us, but remember that for now, you can email me your work at sberry@gascoigne.co.uk - we are hoping to upload some of the best work onto our website for all to see!

 

Have a great evening and we will speak again tomorrow morning.

Morning Message - Tuesday 24th March 2020

 

Good morning Year 6! I hope you have all had a good sleep and a healthy, nutritious breakfast so that you are ready to have a great day.

 

You may have noticed that the layout of the website has changed slightly since yesterday. Hopefully this will make it a little easier for you to find the activities which you need to complete. There is now a page for each individual day, where you can find all of the information and resources you need for the day's learning. Thank you to everyone who gave feedback yesterday about the website.

 

Today, I am again looking forward to taking part in Joe Wick's daily morning workout. Yesterday, approximately 600,000 people from all over the world tuned in live to take part in the workout - incredible! After that you should be beginning to write your flashback narratives. Remember to make them as descriptive, engaging and interesting as possible. This afternoon's RE activity also looks to be a very interesting one and hopefully some of you can share your work with me today!

 

As always, you can contact me with any questions or just to say hi, using the contact form on the Year 6 main page. As well as this, if you would like to email me a picture/video of your work, I would love to see them! You can email me at sberry@gascoigne.co.uk

 

Have a fantastic day!

Reading

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.

Maths

Visit the White Rose Maths website here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

Please complete Lesson Two (Ratio and Fractions). 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).

 

Writing

Begin writing your flashback narrative, based on the character of Munchkin from Floodland. Use the plan which you created yesterday. Think back to all of the flashback writing you have completed over the previous weeks and use these as a model for this piece of writing. Remember to include all the relevant language and structural features, as well as a range of sentence openers and descriptive, emotive and figurative language. You have three days to work on this first draft. Don't forget to pause regularly whilst writing to re-read and edit your writing.

 

SPaG

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.

RE

Check the worksheet below and complete the activities based on the Holy Week of Easter.
