Week beginning 22nd June 2020
Dear Year 6
We hope you and your families are all keeping well and safe. We will be uploading fun home learning until the end of term for you online.
We have launched a phase email (firstname.lastname@example.org) so you can share your home learning with us. We would love to see what you have been up to and celebrate your success.
In Maths, complete Week 6 about triangles and you can apply your previous learning to finding missing angles. Here is a link to revision and interactive games online to support your learning: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvmxsbk/articles/zggsfrd
In addition to this, all Y6 pupils have been given access to Mangahigh, an online maths portal: https://www.mangahigh.com/en-gb/. Passwords and usernames are based on your names in block capitals plus the digit 1. Children with the same names will need to add the first letter of your surname to the end of both password and username. Passwords and Logins should be able to be edited and changed once you have logged on. E.g. FRED1 FREDG1
Well done Morgan, Phillip, Natalia, Ilinna, Maksim, Jodie and Sana - you have all been playing!
For English, complete Week 6 Reading, Grammar, Spelling and Writing based upon an extract from ‘Monstrous devices’ by Damien Love. Included in the pack are instructions to help you. Work can be completed on paper or in an exercise book. If you fancy a challenge to write your own adventure mystery there are some great lessons here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zv8dqp3.
Reading for pleasure should continue to happen daily and we would love to hear about the books you have read when we are back in school. Lots of books are free to read online: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/library-page?view=image&query=&type=book&age_group=&level=&level_select=oxford+level+20&book_type=&series=#
As this is a new term, we have a new IPC topic called ‘Being Human’. To prepare you we highly recommend watching: ‘Operation Ouch’ - https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000jybp/operation-ouch-do-try-this-at-home-1-bones?xtor=CS8-1000-[Discovery_Cards]-[Multi_Site]-[SL08]-[PS_IPLAYER~N~~P_DoTryThisAtHome]. A very funny series to help support your understanding of how the human body works! You have four lessons to complete every week.
Every Friday, we want to ensure you use your afternoons to maintain a healthy lifestyle. We recommend Joe Wicks workout videos (found on YouTube) or choose an activity from bitesize https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/zj6pyrd. This is a great link to ‘being human’ as you consider how your muscles work and are stretching!
Remember, home learning will help keep your mind active and ensure you are keeping up with your education so you are ready for secondary school. Here is a link to help start to get your ready for next year https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zj2grj6
Did any of you manage to watch the assembly on Oak Academy on Thursday 18th June, that was led by the Duchess of Cambridge and addressed mental well-being? (If not, it is available to access through the Oak Academy website - https://classroom.thenational.academy/assemblies/kindness/).
Wishing you all well,
Mrs Ravenor, Mrs Elias, Mr McMahon, Miss Alefounder, Mrs Dredge, Mrs Alaka-Baruwa and Mrs Petre.
