Week beginning 6th July 2020
Dear Year 6
Thank you so much pupils who managed to share their learning with us last week, it was fantastic to see what you have been up to! Remember you can email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to share your home learning with us and we can celebrate your success.
In Maths, complete Week 8 on ‘Area’. We challenge you to find the area of a room in your house – could you stretch to find the volume too? Here is a link to revision and interactive games online to support your learning about Area and Volume: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjbg87h
Mangahigh is still there for you to use: 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
For English, complete Week 8 Reading, Grammar, Spelling and Writing based upon an extract from ‘Monstrous devices’ by Damien Love you read last week … now you get the opportunity to write the next part of the story. Please email us your endings as would love to read them! 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 why not paint your own cityscape setting: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zxwf7hv
Reading for pleasure should continue to happen daily and we would love to hear about the books you have read. Recently we have read ‘Can you see me’, ‘Wonder’, ‘Brightspark’, ‘Rooftoppers’, ‘The Boy at the back of the class’, ‘The House with Chicken Legs’ and lots of Tom Gates books! We highly recommend these titles and hope you enjoy them too. 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=#
This week in ‘Being Human’ you will be studying diets, how they have changed and leading a healthy lifestyle (a great link to our jigsaw topic we completed in Spring – Healthy Me). A little revision too on life cycles – how much do you remember from the end of Year 5?
Follow this link for excellent learning modules from the University of Manchester - https://www.childrensuniversity.manchester.ac.uk/learning-activities/science/. They have great activities and interactive fun for exercise diet and the human body!
Are you still using Fridays to exercise? Have you designed your own workout yet? You can send it via email and we can try it out in school! We have enjoyed Joe Wicks workout videos (found on YouTube) and bitesize activities: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/zj6pyrd.
Wishing you all well and only one more week until the summer holidays!
Mrs Ravenor, Mrs Elias, Mr McMahon, Miss Alefounder, Mrs Dredge, Mrs Alaka-Baruwa and Mrs Petre.
