Class 6

Monday 13th July 2020

 

Hello Class 6,

 

It is your final week of the school year this week and that means your final week of home learning. This week I’d like you to continue with your spellings, reading and TT Rockstars as normal. But literacy and numeracy this week is a booklet of tasks. This will be posted today for you to work through. Try your best to give each task a go and I hope you enjoy them. As for topic, there are some creative, making tasks to complete if you wish, again it would be wonderful to see your creations so don’t forget to send me photographs via Purple Mash email!

 

 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 for the home learning and your hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed, it has been lovely seeing your photos and work you have sent in, you have done Burton Road Primary proud! I know it may have been difficult at times and testing for grown ups too, but you’ve smashed it, well done! I hope your motivation continues for the new school year.

 

This week you will receive your school reports and find out your new class and teacher…how exciting for you! Things may be a little different in September, when you return, with regards to routines etc, but worry not- we’re all in this together and we will support you and each other as best as we can. Our aim is for you to be safe and happy!

 

It has been an absolute pleasure to see what you’ve been up to and work alongside you for your final weeks of this year and I look forward to seeing you all safe and smiling in September for another fun, learning, action-packed year! Have a great Summer everyone! Stay safe and look after you and yours!

Hello class 6!

 

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’re all ‘pros’ and know how it all works by now!

 

Everything remains just about the same - spellings, numeracy, literacy and topic.  There is a slight change this week with your literacy as I have set little SPAG tasks rather than bigger literacy tasks. There are three differentiated sheets on the PDF. Do all three if you wish, or the one that is the level most suited to you. You can tell the difference by looking at the star at the bottom of each sheet. I hope you enjoy the SPAG tasks as I know some of you were getting a little bored of the literacy now. 

 

Please continue your weekly reading as I know most of you have been doing and logging into accelerated reader too to complete a quiz and also don’t forget there is a TT rockstars battle for the week.

Please 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!

Week 1   1st June 2020

Hello Class 6. I hope you’ve enjoyed a beautiful, sunny past week, and hope you and your families are safe and well.

 

Home learning will continue as normal and updates will be on our web page, as you have used previously. As other teachers are busy teaching in school, I have been given the job of making sure you’re still learning and keeping those minds busy. 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. I want you to understand that there is no right or wrong order in which you choose to do the work. Remember attempting work and trying your best is always appreciated no matter how much you do.

 

Work shall be posted weekly, keep an eye out on our web page and on Purple Mash.

 

I shall set a weekly spelling quiz for you to have a go at. I shall post a spelling list of 10 spellings on our web page for you to practise first and you may choose when you’re ready to take the spelling quiz on Purple Mash. Try and keep up with your spellings as best as you can. Also talk about the meaning of each word! This is important so you know what they mean!

Daily literacy and numeracy powerpoint will be posted weekly and this includes the learning tasks and any additional supporting resources too. Please try your best at having a go at these. 

 

Our new topic is The Vikings! It is such a wonderful topic and I hope you enjoy learning about it as much as I adore teaching it! There will be a lesson each week to read and understand on a powerpoint. There shall be a task after each powerpoint for you to complete. It would be great if you could use your creativity and present your task as you’d like. Some tasks I have added additional resources that may assist you in the task. In addition to the task after the powerpoint there is a menu of tasks relating to the Vikings topic. By all means have a go and choose any of the tasks you wish to do if they interest you. You’re not expected to complete ALL of the tasks, but it would be lovely if you could choose some to show off your creative skills!

Literacy week 1 

Day 1 – Listening to The Sword in the Stone and then reading a version in print. Answering questions on the text. Summarising characters and their relationships.    

 

Day 2 – Watching an adaptation of the same story. Writing a paragraph from given stimuli. Summarising and re-telling the story.

 

Day 3 – Listening to and reading ‘A Good Play’, a poem by RL Stevenson. Listening to some teaching on past and present tense and then completing given exercises.      

 

Day 4 – Listening to and reading ‘The Swing’ by RL Stevenson. Listening to teaching on the progressive form, then writing sentences using this. Writing creatively.

 

Day 5 – Reading Where Go the Boats by RL Stevenson. Learning about the perfect form from the teaching, and practising it. Choosing a favourite poem and memorising it.  

 

Please note the literacy work will say 'week 8 day 1 etc' this is the correct work for week 1.

Numeracy week 1   1.6.20

 

Day 1 – Read through the powerpoint on multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. If children can access this, they will hear the voice-over on the place value grid.  They use a place value grid as their model when multiplying and dividing.   

 

Day 2 – Children can work through the Learning Reminders to rehearse how a ‘function machine’ changes the input into an output. Drawing on the teaching from yesterday, they understand division as the inverse of multiplication.

 

Day 3 – Read through the powerpoint on telling the time on both analogue and digital clocks. If children can access the PowerPoint, they hear key points explained.  They practise recording analogue and digital times, first to five-minute intervals and then to one minute.

 

Day 4 – Children rehearse number bonds to 60 (25 + 35, 20 + 40, etc.), then focus on telling the time on both analogue and digital clocks to the next hour.  They practise this skill, then extend it using a problem-solving investigation.  

 

Day 5 – Children use their understanding of units of time (hours, minutes and seconds) to time events, then record the results in a bar chart. They also interpret bar charts of the same type.

 

Please note that the learning resources may say 'week 4 day 1, 2 etc' but they're the correct resources for week 1.

Topic Week 1 

 

Please read through part 1 and part 2 of week 1's powerpoints. There is a task at the end of part 2's powerpoint. See if you can complete the timeline.

Happy St Georges Day Class 6!

Week 2

This week I know a lot of you have been baking/making lots of scrumptious treats while you have been off school! So I have tried to theme this week's writing tasks around that!

Monday: Can you write some instructions for something that you have made? Or if you prefer, you can watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqMqTB7RSjo  of how to make a chocolate cake and see if you can come up with your own instructions for how to make it!

Tuesday: Can you write some instructions for how to make a sandwich? You can make it as scrumptions or as gruesome as you want! Fancy a worm sandwich? That's fine! Just create some clear instructions that I could follow to make one!

Wednesday: Can you create some instructions on how to cross the road safely? 

Thursday: Can you create some instructions on how to make your very own magical, special potion! You can use any ingredients you want! Make it fun!

Friday: This is super important at the moment! Can you create some instructions that will tell us how to safely wash our hands? 

Maths: This week's focus is on MONEY MONEY MONEY! 

Monday: Can you complete the first worksheet, adding together two amounts of money and then using <> or = signs to compare them? Remember, the hungry crocodile always eats the biggest number! You don't have to do all the sheets, they get harder as they go along so you can choose which one you do! Remember to use column addition to add up your numbers and then compare which is bigger!

Tuesday: How much money is in the jar? Add up the coins and write the total in the jars! 

Wednesday & Thursday: Can you draw (or cut out if you prefer) the coins in the jars to make the different amounts of money? Be careful to only draw real coins- for example, you couldn't draw 3p because there isn't a 3p coin! 

Friday: Check your change! Can you check you have the correct change from £1? You might find it easier to do a written column subtraction from 100p and take away the amount you have spent!

 

Curriculum: Have you been completing the Joe Wickes workouts?? Please send in pictures if you have been doing them! 

Art: We just started to look at our new artist Henri Rousseau before we broke up. Can you have a go at your own version of the famous Tiger in a Tropical Storm picture at home!
