Year 6 Class Page
Week Beginning 18.5.20
This week is Mental Health Awareness week.
Please follow this link to watch a short video about our Mental Health. Then create a poster / leaflet / powerpoint encouraging children to look after their Mental Health and giving suggestions of what they can do.
The theme this year is 'Kindness' - I challenge you to a week of kindness - do something kind each day to someone different each day!
For English, I'd like you to write me a story about feelings and email me them! I'd love to see them and I promise I'll send them back marked for you to see!
In Maths, please could you continue to do the BBC Bitesize lessons daily wherever possible. I would also really like to see you show off some of your core maths skills so try to do 10 long division questions and send them me if you want!
I would like you to also pick your favourite History topic and create me a PowerPoint on facts that you can remember or research further.
In science, I'd like you to pick an experiment and send me a picture of you doing it, here are some ideas: http://www.sciencefun.org/kidszone/experiments/
Keep smiling and stay safe! Miss you all!
Letter for children for the start of SATs Week (11th - 15th May):
During the School Closure, we will provide ideas for work and things to do at home here. As always, please visit our Learning Zone for a variety of suggested activities and electronic resources.
Please read the letter as it will explain a number of things I would like from you and your child, if possible. Please also let your child read the letter to them.
We have attached some more learning activities for the children to do over the first few weeks after Easter. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Spellings will be set on a Monday and will be expected to be returned to school the same Friday.
In addition to this spelling homework, it is important that children are practising their times tables as this really will enhance their learning in all areas of Maths. Please see information about Times Tables Rock Stars to help.
Children are also encouraged to be revising grammatical terms and their use in writing as well as revising spelling patterns and rules. This is compulsory and will help your child progress in their learning.
We will listen to children read in class as part of a group through guided reading sessions. Please listen to your child read at home as much as possible, even if it just 10 minutes before bed. Please encourage your child to read widely at home as it will have a positive impact not only on their reading and comprehension skills but also their writing.
This term PE will mainly take place on a Tuesday and Wednesday but it may change so please can you ensure that children have their full PE kit in school at all times. It is important that children stay hydrated throughout the school day to help aid concentration so please make sure the children have a water bottle they can fill up throughout the day.
We are all very eager and keen to be going to Robinwood on the 11th September. Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions. This is a great way to start the school year in Year 6 and to help us get to know the children (and them to know us!) as we start our journey through Year 6 together.
The following website will give you information regarding your child’s SATs assessments at the end of the year. It is very useful to look at so you can support your child through preparation for these. Here are some useful websites we are expecting the children to be visiting daily:
If you have any questions/queries please do not hesitate to contact us, we look forward to getting to know the children and supporting them through this important year.
