Class 12

WELCOME TO CLASS 12

 

"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." 

- Albert Einstein

In Year Six, we...

listen and make positive contributions to class discussions

try our best and persevere even when we find things challenging

take care of one another and work as a team

take responsibility for our learning

ask questions when thinking critically about what we are learning

enjoy reading for pleasure

strive to achieve our personal targets and goals

 

Our classroom is a happy and inviting place where we want our children to feel free to make mistakes in order to help them learn. We strongly believe that a classroom with laughter and smiles is a classroom that learns best and we promote a positive attitude in everything that we do. We want the children to enjoy their final year at Burton Road Primary School and give them memories and experiences that they will treasure forever. We hope that you enjoy seeing all of the fabulous things we have done so far. Thank you for visiting our class page.

Hello Class 12,

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

Home Learning 

 

Welcome back Class 12. 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 Miss Densley 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 me 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! Remember- 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 Miss Densley and I hope to see some of your work sent in 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 

 

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!

Thank you for your photos via Twitter so far!

A message from Miss Densley

 

Hello everyone!

 

Welcome back to what would have been the start of our summer term. I am so sad that I am not able to share this time with you and I am missing you all lots.

 

Just a little reminder that there are lots of things that you can be doing at home to keep yourselves busy. You can access all the daily Maths and Literacy tasks below and I ave marked which weeks they are. There are also lots of other websites that you can log in to such as Accelerated Reader (I'm still tracking the quizzes), TT Rockstars (I've set up battles with Class 11), Classroom Secrets and of course, Purple Mash. I am still setting To Dos on PM and I would love to see the work that you have been completing. 

 

I have also tried to set up a Class 12 blog on PM which can be accessed via 'sharing' at the top of your screen. I have also E-mailed you all on PM which you can access via 'computing' and then '2email'. See if you can find these things and reply or comment.

 

I am also loving seeing your tweets with your photos of what you have been doing. Keep these coming! 

 

I hope that you are all keeping well.

 

Sending health and happiness to you and all your families.

Circle Time

As we are growing up, becoming more independent and preparing for secondary school, we like to have opportunity to share our thoughts and ideas with one another about everything from friendships and family to worries and concerns. In today's session, we discussed giving advice and how we can best support each other by being kind, considerate and thoughtful. We exchanged ideas and built upon this by creating scenarios when we may need to put these ideas into actions. 

Pair and Share in Literacy

Verb Forms Sorting

Modelling how light travels

Literacy lesson on semi-colons

Class 12 worked together this morning to write sentences including semi-colons. They came up with great ideas and vocabulary that are all based around our topic of The Tudors.

Our recommended read for this topic is Treason by Berlie Doherty.

The book is fictional, although there are many true historical facts about King Henry VIII and what life was like as part of his Court. 

We are preparing to write a descriptive piece about Westminster Palace and the man himself - King Henry VIII!

School Council Elections

Young Shakespeare Company present Romeo and Juliet

Presenting our work and findings on Banksy to the governors and the rest of school in our celebration assembly.
Step 3 - Let's get NEON!
Step 2 of our Banksy inspired art - the painting!
The beginning of our Banksy inspired pieces - creating an outline. 

Creating a timeline of art periods proved tricky today!

We tried to order the pieces of art and match them to their art period name that we thought they were from. We saw lots of different styles of art and analysed how art has changed over the years. We compared this art to that of Banksy, who we are studying. 

We now know many different art periods and when they took place. 

To learn, read and write numbers up to 10 million. 

We played a memory matching game to help us practise saying numbers including millions! 

What makes art 'art'?

To begin our topic on Banksy, we thought about what makes art 'art'. We discussed everything that might be important to an artist and what might motivate them to create their art. We then organised the nine different discussion points into a diamond with the most important at the top and the least important at the bottom. We used our listening and conversational skills to debate why we had chosen that place within the diamond and moved those that presented a better argument.
