Class 11

Monday 13th July 2020

 

Hello Class 11,

 

It is your final week of the school year this week and that means your final week year 6 too! It has been lovely to see many of your faces in school, but for those of you who haven’t been in school we have missed you dearly! Hopefully on Friday we can all be together for a final day and say our goodbyes.

 

I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of myself and your teachers for your continued support throughout this strange time these past few months. I want you to know that you’ve all done superbly with your efforts whether you’ve come into school or completed the home learning tasks your hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed, you have done Burton Road Primary proud!

 

I look forward to seeing you in school on Friday- if you are attending. For those of you who aren’t I would like to send a squishy, virtual hug and heartfelt goodbye and I wish you all the best for your next adventures at high school! You’ll smash it!

 

Have a great Summer everyone! Stay safe and look after you and yours!

Love from Mrs Hatton x 

 

Whilst you are at home, you may be on-line more than usual. Check out this presentation to make sure you stay safe and savvy!

Hello Class11!

 

I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend and that you all remained to stay safe! I am not going to write as much for your homelearning introduction this week as I feel that you know how it works now as you're all pros! 

 

Everything remains the same - numeracy, literacy and topic. Please continue your weekly reading as I know some of you have been doing and logging into accelerated reader too and also don’t forget there is a TT rockstars battle for the week.

 

Remember to share anything whether it is work related or not - if you wish of course- you know how I enjoy seeing what you’ve been up to!

 

If there is anything you require or need support with you know how to get in touch with me via purple mash email, please don’t hesitate!

 

A massive thank you to you all for your continued support, you’re all doing a smashing job!

 

Have a wonderful week everyone!

School Reopening 1.6.20

 

Hi Class 11- my completely fabulous class!

 

I hope this post finds you and your family safe, healthy and happy!

It's reaching the end of the half term holiday, but I feel so strange, as I know I will be seeing some of you on Monday - but not all of you. (crying face emoji! - I haven't got one on here!) Whether you are returning or staying at home, our main goal is that you have access to your learning and that you have our support to help you feel happy and secure.

 

School and class 11 may look different for those of you that do return, and that might feel strange but all the teachers and staff will do everything that we can to help you feel happy and secure, whilst keeping you safe. There will be new routines, but like anything, it will only be 'new' for a short time and we will make sure you understand any changes.

 

For those of you who don't return to school, I just want you to know that class 11 is still strong in spirit! I'm always here on email, or if you have any questions, or just want to say hi, ring me at school. It's still a strange time for us all but I'm still here to help you all. Our home learning will continue and I've updated all of  the 'ToDo's' here on Purple Mash. Check out our class 11 page on the school website to keep up-to-date. We have some exciting new topics and activities lined up for this new term! Just keep active, keep reading and do what you can - do not worry about your work.

 

I'm so sorry that this isn't the summer term we have planned for our fabulous year 6, but we make the best of these strange times! So take care of yourselves and your families and I will see you all soon!

 

Love Mrs Conway - your proud teacher! blushheartyes

Home Learning 

Welcome back Class 11. I hope you have enjoyed a lovely week in the glorious sunshine and hope you and you’re families are safe and well!  It has been such a long time since I have seen you all and I have missed every one of you. I am sorry I haven’t seen you due to the unfortunate events that have unveiled these past few months, but I trust you’re all as amazing in Year 6 as you were in Year 5!

 

I have continued on with the home learning for Mrs Conway as she is very busy teaching in school. I have promised to keep up as best as I can with your home learning on your website and Purple Mash. It may be a little different to what you have been used to, but not too much! I will make it easy enough for you to follow. There is still TT Rockstars and Accelerated quizzes to be completed after you have read a book too. If you do need a new reading book please do not hesitate to contact us by email via purple mash.

 

Topic

Our new topic in Year 6 is World War Two. There is so much to learn about this topic and it is a captivating part of our British history, as I’m sure you’ll find out over the next few weeks.

There is an expectation for you to do some work for our topic but I have made it as creative and as fun as I can to allow you to enjoy this topic from home with your family. There will be a powerpoint presentation each week relating to our WW2 topic that I would like you to look through. At the beginning of each powerpoint there is a short introduction about what the powerpoint is about and what you will learn. At the end of the powerpoint there is a task. I would like you to have a go at the task if you can please. If you need support or guidance on any of the tasks please feel free to email via purple mash. I have tried to add supportive resources that you may wish to use, please note these are not compulsory resources and I welcome your own versions! If you feel that your minds get a little bored I have also added a little extra relating to WW2 (task menu).

In addition to the powerpoints, there is a ‘task menu’ with a range of activities that you can choose to complete. Please don’t worry about having to complete all of the tasks; I have given an ambitious range-which may be of interest to you for you to choose for your enjoyment. Do these as and when you wish. Obviously I encourage all of your projects/tasks to be photographed and shared. I’d love to put some on our ‘photos of work wall of fame’ on our class web page too!

 

I hope you enjoy WW2 topic as much as I do! And…just to reiterate what Mrs Conway has said before- there's no right or wrong - do what you can to keep your brain busy!

 

Literacy & Numeracy

As before, literacy and numeracy will be set for each day. Watch the daily powerpoint and complete the task(s). You should be used to this by now so you’ll know how it works. Each week's home learning links are posted below.

 

I hope you remain to work as hard for me as you have for Mrs Conway and I hope to see some of your work sent to me or put on your Twitter page.

 

Take care and stay safe, Mrs Hatton smiley

Please read the guide for information on how to email your child's work in to me.

Literacy week 1  1.6.20

 

Day 1 – You read transcripts of television judges explaining your decisions.  Highlight and annotate the transcripts and then prepare your own explanations in a similar style.  

 

Day 2 –Using the PowerPoint presentation on adverbials and conjunctions. If you can access this presentation, you’ll get the teaching on how these devices aid cohesion in a text. Read an explanation, identify features and then write to explain the success of a person or team.

 

Day 3 –Read and listen to two amazingly powerful poems by Rachel Rooney. They annotate these, using a set of poetic features and technical terms. Then write a paragraph about one of them.

 

Day 4 – Read ‘Gran, Can you rap?’ Listen to performances. Then annotate the poem, using the poetic features from yesterday. Can you write new verses in the same style. 

 

Day 5 – Read ‘The Sound Collector’. Make notes about sounds they can hear in their houses. Then follow instructions to write a new poem based on the original.   

Numeracy week 1    1.6.20 

 

Day 1 – In the Learning Reminders, children are shown two pie charts which they are asked to interpret and compare. They look at more pie charts and interpret them, in both practice and mastery questions.

 

Day 2 – Using the PowerPoint presentation on constructing pie charts. If children can access this, they hear the process step- by-step. They practise this skill on the practice sheet. If they have a protractor at home, there is a more challenging activity to give further practice.

 

Day 3 – Children work through Learning Reminders to find the mean of a set of numbers. Practise finding the mean score of dice rolls. Encourage them to tackle the investigation. If they’re stuck, they throw rolled socks around!

 

Day 4 – Children find the mean of a group of numbers, this time using a calculator to give a decimal answer.

 

Day 5 Using the PowerPoint presentation on fractals. If accessed, they will see and read detailed notes on fractals being created. Encourage them to search online for fractals in nature. Children are given instructions for a choice of two fractals to create themselves. This should be a fun and creative end to the week!

 

Please note the resources my say 'week 8' this is the correct resource for week 1.

Topic

 

Please follow the powerpoint then complete the task at the end. Be as creative as you like! 

Did you know...

 

6th June 1944 were the D Day Landings?

 

What is that you say? Well I am not telling you...just yet wink

 

How about you do a little research task about it and if you can, send some work in to me, I would love to share! This day is part of our British history and relates wonderfully to your topic of WW2!

Good luck!

Year 6, here is a task menu of activities to choose from, should you wish to. I know there are plenty of tasks to get through for each week’s topic lessons, but these are some extra curricular creative tasks you may feel enthused to complete. You may have to do some research!

Home Learning

 

Hi Class 11! I hope you are all healthy and happy! This week's home learning links are posted below. Scroll down for some helpers for the 'ToDo' tasks set on Purple Mash and the link to BBC Bitesize which is another great resource for all subjects. There's no right or wrong - do what you can to keep your brain ticking over! I'm loving seeing you continue to pass those accelerated reader tests and there's also TT Rockstars fora  quick recap of those tables. We know that you have also continued to work on the learning packs sent out, so keep sharing your hard work on Twitter. I love seeing the different projects, challenges, arts and crafts you are all keeping busy with!

 

Make sure you've scrolled down to take a read of the letter sent to you about SATs - it's a really important message. In this unprecedented times, please do not worry about your learning; when the time is right, we will get back to it! Our priority is that you all feel safe and happy. So take care of yourselves and your families! Love Mrs C xsmiley

 

 

 

Stay positive and proactive - a busy brai

Thoughts for Thursday! 14.5.20

 

Hi class 11! It's really strange to believe that we should have been taking our SATs this week! We're all thinking about much more important things now! But it did remind me of a letter that myself and Miss Densley usually send out to all our year 6 pupils this week. I'd love you to take a read. It's just a reminder that SATs do not show us what makes you all special and unique. You all have different talents and strengths...and as Roald Dahl says in Fantastic Mr Fox...there's something fantastic about that, isn't there? I miss you all and your own special talents! Mrs Conway smiley

 

Your 'No SATs' letter! Take a read! x

Monday Musings For the Week 4.5.20

Happy Star Wars Day! Get it? May the forth (force!) be with you! Please find your daily maths and literacy work for the week posted below. Purple Mash has some new challenges for you involving science, geography, units of measure and let's see how you get on with coding in computing! Don't forget to check out the email function on PM (there's more information if your scroll down). There's still TT Rockstars to challenge your tables, but I'd really like to get you all back on with reading this week. 

 

I know you have the other tasks, but remember, reading at home is the key to success, just as it is when you're at school. You can still take your Accelerated Reader tests online and congratulations to those pupils who have all completed tests during lock down... I know who you are! Wow! Keep it up!

 

Don't worry too much about levels - just keep reading the books you have - remember, those of you who were in class the last week took three books home! To make it fair, I've done my reading homework too, so check out my NF short story (it's only 8 mins!) which I've posted for you in the link below. You'll get to spot my cheeky 'students' at home and there's a quick vocab challenge at the end. Let me know what you think - if you've enjoyed, it, I'll post another story next week. Be kind - it's horrible seeing and hearing yourself on a screen! I feel sorry for you all having to listen to me all day at school! 

 

Please keep sharing your work, tasks or activities on Twitter - it's fine to adapt work or create your own challenges! I love to see what you're up to!Love Mrs C.

A Task To Try- Home Learning
 

Equivalent units of measure are always tricky concepts for children to memorise and visualise...this activity is a great way to make these concepts stick! Fill a variety of glasses/bottles/containers and ask the children to record their estimates. It may help to show them a litre/1000ml to compare. See who has the best estimates! Measure the water back out to check. Could be a little messy but it’s certainly fun! 
 

Estimating in action!
