Letter from Year 6 Staff w/c 6th July
Date: 3rd Jul 2020 @ 1:46pm
We hope you are all continuing to be well and staying safe.
We would like to ask you to write down some of your favourite memories from your time at Moldgreen and email them to us via the school website. This can be anything at all that you have enjoyed and it has stuck in your mind, such as School Concerts, trips, residentials, receiving awards, members of staff etc… The choice is yours. We would like to incorporate these into our Virtual Leavers Assembly (More details about this next week).
We would also like you to take part in our Virtual Sports Day on Tuesday 7th July. Details can be found on the attached PDF.
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 6th July 2020
NB. We are focussing on Week 10 on the Oak Academy site (wb 29th June).
This week’s English lessons focus on reading and poetry.
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 – During this lesson, we are going to be looking at reading comprehension questions, focusing on poetry.
Lesson 2 Reading Focus – In this session, we will continue to look at reading comprehension questions.
Lesson 3 During this lesson, we will be identifying the features of a poem.
Lesson 4 In this lesson, we are going to be looking at planning a poem using rhyme and archaic language.
Lesson 5 During this session, we will be writing a poem.
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 graphs and data handling.
Lesson 1 In today's lesson, we will learn to construct line graphs using discrete and cumulative data.
Lesson 2 In today's lesson, we will learn to interpret pie charts.
Lesson 3 In today's lesson, we will use fractions to express proportions.
Lesson 4 In today's lesson, we will use ratio to express relationships.
Lesson 5 In today's lesson, we will solve problems involving scale factor.
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:
Geography: In this lesson we will be exploring a new type of graph called a population pyramid. These special graphs help us to see what the breakdown of a population is in terms of gender and age.
Spanish: In this lesson, we will recap all of our previous learning and then move onto talking about our family and pets in Spanish.
Science: In this lesson, we will look at three different methods for separating mixtures: sieving, filtration and evaporation. We will learn when to use each one and plan our own experiment. You will need a pencil and a piece of paper for this lesson.
PSHE: In today's lesson, we will be building on the wonderful work that has taken place on Black Lives Matter by using the ultimate tragedy of George Floyd’s death to drive change nationally. As Deputy PM, you will lead this via contributing to a ‘Fund it’ page, create a billboard and a slogan to raise awareness of the issue of bias.
PE: We would like to invite you to take part in our Virtual Sports Day on Tuesday 7th July.
Please see the attached PDF for details. All activities can easily be completed at home. Almost 400 Schools in West Yorkshire have signed up for this and it promises to be a great day. Please email us some photos of what you have been doing.
