Hello year 6,
Hope you have all had a lovely half term and enjoyed the outdoors as much as you can. The weather has been so beautiful for us all recently.
I am going to continue to put different tasks on seesaw. You are doing such brilliant work on this which is making me feel very proud of you all.
I have put a new choice board on seesaw for you this week. Try to do as many activities as you can.
I will not be setting tasks on education city from now on, the learning I would like you to do is on seesaw. However, if you would like to still go on education city and choose your own learning you can do this.
As I am getting lots of videos and photos through seesaw now, I can pass these on to Mr Parish for his weekly youtube assembly. However, if parents still want to email me about all the amazing things you have been doing then that is also great. I am also available via email for any questions you have about the home learning.
I have also put below some more suggestions of some home learning for you to do below.
We are going to continue to read on Holes on our youtube channel. Don't forget to tune in and listen, it's all getting very exciting now.
This task is on Seesaw this week. You will watch a video clip with some high diving giraffes. I would like you to record or write sports commentary for this.
There is a reading comprehension on seesaw this week for you to try.
Please make sure you are still reading for at least 15 minutes a day. If you do complete your book, you can do the quiz for any books which are on accelerated reader on ukhosted53.renlearn.co.uk/6711646 This is the Acclerated Reader website which allows children to complete their reading quizzes. Certificates for each level will be given out on our return to school, so keep quizzing!
If you need to check to see if the book is on the accelerated reader, this website will check for you https://www.arbookfind.co.uk/UserType.aspx?RedirectURL=%2fdefault.aspx
However, any type of reading is fantastic, especially if you are enjoying the book so don't worry if it is not on accelerated reader.
The Maths challenge for this week is on Seesaw using white rose. This week you will be reviewing your knowledge of fractions, decimals and percentages.
If you would like an extra challenge though go on to http://www.iseemaths.com/lessons56/
On this website there are daily challenges to test your problem solving skills. Again if you would like to send any of your work over to me to take a look at, please do.
Another option is to go on to https://corbettmathsprimary.com/5-a-day/ this will give you 5 questions a day and you can choose the level of diffculty.
If you fancy revising any topics we have already covered try https://uk.ixl.com/math/year-6
Also don't forget to keep playing on times tables rockstars, Mr Parish will be announcing the class leaderboards each week in his youtube assembly. Let's make sure we are at the top of the leaderboard Year 6!
We have a subscription to Oxford Owl. On this website you can read books as well as practising spellings. This is the Read Write Inc. spellings which we have been doing in class. The website to access this is https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/. I have sent logins for this on a text message to parents. There is also a parent user guide to this which I have attached to this page.
Spelling rule this week is number 50 homophones on spelling frame.
We are starting our brand new science topic this week, Light. This week you will be looking at the colour of light. This lesson is on seesaw.
Our new topic in history over the next term is looking at history in our local area. We will be looking at the Battle of Nantwich and the part this played in the English civil war. The monarch at the time was Charles I, but I am sure some of you have never heard of him. So, this week's task is to look at Charles and who he was. You will then look at the civil war and the two sides who fought against each other. This activity is on seesaw.
In geography, we are also looking at our local area as part of our topic. This week I want you to looko at different types of maps, before making a sketch map of your local area. This activity is on seesaw.
I know lots of you have been joining Joe Wicks for his daily PE class which is fantastic.
Another great opportunity to also get creative is a competition being run by Halbro Sportswear. They are encouraging children to design a new PE kit for their school. The winning entries will then be made for our school based on the winning design. All you have to do is follow the link below, download the template, then get designing.
Also, keep an eye out on the Crewe and Nantwich School Sport Partnership Twitter page for the ‘Virtual Challenge’. These are sporting events that you can take part in at home. When a new event is released, Mr Goacher will also upload a video explaining it onto our YouTube channel. Mr Goacher and I look forward to seeing your entries.
Madame Potts has said Bonjour to us this week. Attached is a document with suggested wesbites for you to use for French. I have also added some French documents to this page for you to have a look at, these include songs and some reading exercises.
Each week, I will post a video challenge for you to complete. I will then add all your videos togethet to make a video montage video, this will hopefully create some lovely lasting memories for you as well.
As you will be starting high school soon I will now be posting a transition activity each week on seesaw. This week's task is to think about what you would like your new form tutor to know about you.
I will update these tasks weekly. If you need any help with any of the above please also email me.
Miss Davenport, Mrs Mascarehas and Mrs Heath
