Afternoon Message – Tuesday 31st March 2020
Good afternoon year 6! I hope you have enjoyed learning today and found it challenging.. I hope you’re all trying your best. Thankfully, the sun has been shining today, so I had a chance to play some football with my son in the garden. This coupled with the morning’s P.E lesson with Joe Wicks are helping me keep as fit as possible. I hope you’ve been maintaining your daily exercise routines. By now you should have completed your plans for the non-chronological report tomorrow, which means we will get another chance to see some of the fantastic pieces of work this year group has and continuous to produce.
I’m sure you all learnt something new in the R.E task. Please do remember to share what you’ve learnt with us!
As always, you can contact Mr. Berry with any questions or just to say hi, using the contact form on the Year 6 main page.
Well done to you for completing your lessons and we hope you have a good evening.
Mr Ade-Davis (Sonara Class Teacher)
Morning Message - Tuesday 31st March 2020
Good morning Year 6, Ade-Davis here again! Hope you and all those dear to you are doing well and staying safe. It has been a pleasure to read over some of the work that has been sent in. Some of them were really moving and I would like to thank Ashton (Gold) and Amira (Sonara) for the PSHE pieces. You can all have a look at these excellent pieces by clicking on the ‘Celebrating our Learning’ tab. You can find this on our Home learning home page.
An Extra thanks goes out to Amira for identifying some of the features for the written piece. As promised, you can access these right here:
1. Eye-catching, large title
2. Introductory paragraph
3. Text split up into paragraphs
4. Paragraphs revolving around different aspects of the subject
5. Subheadings for each paragraph
6. Usually written in present tense
7. Pictures of the subject

It’s coming close to the start of a special week in the Christian calendar. Palm Sunday, which commemorates the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem (Matthew 21:1–9), when palm branches were placed in his path, before his arrest on Holy Thursday and his crucifixion on Good Friday. It thus marks the beginning of Holy Week, the final week of Lent. It is fitting therefore, that you will be looking into the events of Good Friday today.
Remember, if you need anything at all, please email using the contact form on the main Year 6 page and we will try to get back to you as quick as we can!
Speak to you later in the day.
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 questions properly as your teachers can see the answers and respond to you.
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 2 (Ratio and proportion problems). 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).
Begin to research features of non-chronological reports. Some success criteria’s have been saved in the folder. Also have a look at other non-chronological reports on this website https://www.literacywagoll.com/non-chronological-report.html. You are then expected to plan your non-chronological report. Don’t forget to think about your sub-headings. Remember, don’t just copy and paste the information of websites this needs to be your own work!
Practise your weekly spellings. Copy them into your home learning book and write their definitions.
Complete the SPaG activity in the folder. 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.
As mentioned earlier, you will be looking into the story of Easter, particularly around the 15 stations. Access the R.E. pdf for full instructions of the session.
