Letter from Year 6 Staff w/c 25th May & 1st June
Date: 23rd May 2020 @ 4:14pm
We hope you are all continuing to be well and staying safe. We hope you manage to make the most of the good weather and enjoy the outdoors lots this week by going for walks or cycling in our beautiful countryside. 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 unsure of our email address, this can be found through the school website under the heading ‘pupils’, and just scroll down to staff contact.
Hopefully you have been able to use some of the lessons on the Oak National Academy website. If your child wants to share any learning they have been doing or has any questions, then please email them to us as we would love to see what they have been doing or help you with any queries.
Home Learning wb 1st June 2020
NB. We are focussing on Week 5 on the Oak Academy site (wb 18th May).
This week’s English lessons are all about Diary 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.
Lessons 1 & 2 Reading Focus – we will be focussing on language.
Lesson 3 Identifying features of diary writing.
Lesson 4 Informal language.
Lesson 5 Writing your own diary entry.
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 shape, position and directions which the children have studied parts of in year 6 as well as in previous years.
Lesson 1 Revise the names of the parts of 2-D and 3-D shapes, name 3-D and identify 2-D faces of 3-D shapes.
Lesson 2 Recognise and build 3-D nets, you will then use this information to solve problems.
Lesson 3 Use our knowledge of 3-D shapes and visualise nets of shapes in order to solve problems.
Lesson 4 identify the properties of a circle, name the parts and find out about the relationships between the parts.
Lesson 5 Identify relationships between circle parts and then solve problems involving circles.
The Whiterose Maths Home Learning lessons ( https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ ) are also good quality. These worksheets should be attached to our school website. They follow a similar format to Oak Academy as it has a video to watch and some questions to do. Follow Week 5 w/c 18th May.
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.
This week’s timetable includes:
History: Learning about anti-semitism in Germany in the 1930s.
Spanish: Saying how you feel in Spanish.
Science: Learning how humans have changed over time and use the theory of evolution to explain these changes.
History: Learning about the Holocaust.
Music: Learning about harmony and learning to sing a song.
PE: https://www.sportingage.co.uk/ - a great set of physical challenges that will provide you with a sporting ‘age’ assessment if you sign up with your details.
Or PE with Joe Wicks on You tube.
Remember to keep active the best you can. There are also a number of PE challenges on the school website for you to have a go at in the pupils section. There is also a message from Linda Stacey our School Games Organiser, which links to her twitter page. You will find this message in the curriculum area on the school website under PE.
