We hope you are all continuing to be well and staying safe.
If you want to continue with regular reading and learning using BBC Bitesize lessons (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zncsscw/year-6-and-p7-lessons/1) or previous lessons you didn’t get to yet on Oak Academy or White Rose, please remember that we can be contacted with any queries. If you are having trouble with online activities and require any Learning Packs then please get in touch with us, either by calling school and requesting a learning pack or emailing us via the school website. If you are unsure of our email address, this can be found through the school website under the heading ‘pupils’, and just scroll down to staff contact.
It would be great to see some examples of your child’s learning or to hear of things your child has learned or enjoyed learning about via email so that we can give them a ‘shout out’ on the school blog part of the school website.
Home Learning wb 22nd June 2020
NB. We are focussing on Week 8 on the Oak Academy site (wb 15th June).
This week’s English lessons focus on reading and story writing.
As before each of the five English lessons begins and ends with a quiz. These are not essential to the lesson but will help you to see how much progress you are making and show you which areas you need to practice.
An online teacher will guide you through your main activity in a videoed lesson. This can be paused whilst you do your work. The teacher will tell you exactly what to do.
Lesson 1 Reading Focus – answering comparison questions.
Lesson 2 Reading Focus – prediction questions.
Lesson 3 Identify the key features of a story.
Lesson 4 Planning a story.
Lesson 5 Writing a story.
The lessons include daily spelling practice and a test on Fridays. Remember that you can improve your accuracy using Spelling Shed!
Don’t forget to keep reading whilst you are at home. Read to yourself, to an adult, and share stories with brothers and sisters! Listen to stories on BBC teach or look at the links on the school website; they are all part of daily reading and we believe they should be aiming for 30 minutes or more in total every day.
This week’s maths lessons are focussing on linear sequences, measurement (length, mass, volume, time) and area which the children have studied parts of in year 6.
Lesson 1 Calculate area.
Lesson 2 Calculate volume of cubes and cuboids.
Lesson 3 To calculate between standard units of mass.
Lesson 4 To solve problems involving calculation of measure.
Lesson 5 To convert between units of time.
Keep on using TT Rockstars to ensure you increase the speed in which you can multiply and divide. This will help you when it comes to solving problems in all areas of Maths.
