HOME LEARNING DURING SCHOOL CLOSURE

23.03.2020

Good morning my wonderful Year 6 pupils - I'm missing you already! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend with your families and are keeping happy and safe.

 

Live on YouTube at 9.00am every weekday morning, starting today,

#PEwithJOE. Joe 'The Body Coach'will be broadcasting a 30 minute live indoor PE lesson on his YouTube channel, aimed at keeping the nation's children active during the school closure.

This would be a great way to begin each day ready for worksmiley

 

Over the next few weeks I will be giving you suggestions for weekly Maths and English work for you to complete at home, either online (on Purple Mash) or in the green workbook you have all been given. In addition, if you go online to the Twinkl website ( details of how are outlined below) you will find an abundance of other excellent activities to keep you all busy and interested in all subjects across the curriculum. 

* Every week please try to complete one unit of work from the CPG Fiction Reading workbook you were given. Each unit covers every area of reading comprehension and will really help you to develop your reading skills, ready for secondary school. Remember your PEE answers (make a point, find some evidence and explain how the evidence backs up your point) when answering 2 or 3 point questions (especially in the inference sections).

* I also suggest that you all try to complete a couple of pages each week from your Grammar CPG workbook too.

* It is important not to get rusty with you maths calculations so please try to complete one of the arithmetic assessment sheets I gave you each week too please.

Home Learning Pack

Below is a home learning pack which contains:

*  A series of Year 6 maths work. Each set of work has three levels of work: developing, expected and greater depth just like the ones we have been using in class (although each level starts at number 1 each time, unlike the ones we have previously used in class, so make sure you look at the stars to check which level you are using). There are Varied Fluency questions and then Problem Solving and Reasoning ones too - just like we use in class. Remember to do the Varied Fluency ones first until you feel more confident as they generally tend to be easier.

* The pack also contains some Grammar work too plus some practical ideas for learning.

Things to do from the Twinkl Website

 

I recommend that you log onto the Twinkl website (details of how to do this are outlined below) and download and save the:

Year 6 School Closure Home Learning Resource Pack

Try to complete one thing, of your choice, from this pack each week please. There are such a lot of activities on there to choose from. You can either print them off to complete or do them in your green workbooks. 

This Week's Maths Work:

Log onto the Twinkl website (instructions how to do this and your password is outlined below) and:

Search for and download:

   - 'Diving into Mastery - Volume of a Cuboid Teaching Pack' (which contains a Power Point and Worksheets and answers)

   -  'Volume of Cuboids Worksheets - Year 6' (which contains worksheets  and answers)

Please complete at least one or two of these worksheets, answering them in your green workbooks.

 

I'd also like you to work through some of the pages from the Home Learning activity pack above please (choose at least two or three pages to complete please over the course of the week).

This Week's Writing Activity:

I'd really like you to write a sensational newspaper report about Philippe Petit's jaw-dropping wire walk between the Twin Towers. Write this as if you were actually a reporter there, reporting on the events, as if they have just happened.

 

To help you organise this writing, log onto the Twinkl website again and search for Newspaper Reports Year 6. There are lots of Power Points available there about how to write a great newspaper report and examples of what a good one looks like. Some of the key things for you to remember are:

- Make sure your headline grabs your reader's attention;

- Make sure you begin with a 4W's paragraph (who, what, when and where) and remember it is often best to begin with the time the events took place.

- Next, include a paragraph which states the most important events in a nutshell. (The why and how things happened).

- Include at least two more paragraphs detailing why and how things happened, which include some direct and indirect quotes from eye witnesses;

- Think carefully about who you choose to quote as eye witnesses - make them believable to your reader.

- Try to remember to include some time sequencing adverbials/adverbial phrases too please.

- Remember that the main body of your writing should be in the past tense, until your final reorientation paragraph. Your final paragraph should bring the reader up to date with what is happening currently;

- Remember to include some exciting vocabulary. As you are working at home, feel free to use an online thesaurus to help you expand your vocabulary.

 

To help you with this writing it might also be a good idea to do some web research of your own about Philippe Petit, or watch the clips, trailer or information about him on YouTube.

 

You can do this writing either in your green book or on a laptop/computer using Word or Publisher. If you like, you can email me completed ones to our class email address - I'd love to see them. 

 

I will also be adding some Purple Mash work for you to complete, using your login details, over the next few weeks too. However, I won't be giving you any extra work to do over the two week Easter break. You all really deserve some time off, after all the hard work you've been doing lately. (There are some good ideas in the Home Learning activity pack above though in case you find yourself needing something to do).

 

Keep up the great work children!  Keep positive and adopt a Growth Mindset attitude towards your work. Remember, I believe in you and know you can do it.

# We're Proud of Our Selfiesmiley

Some very proud Year 6 pupils, who have requested a selfie (using our class '# Be Proud of Your Selfie' pegs) as they are so proud of the work they have done. Some are showing their wallpaper designs, they have created, inspired by the Victorian designer William Morris. One is showing how proud she is of her history work. Keep it up children - we're so proud of you too.

04.09.19 Having Fun With STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) Challenges

This afternoon, the children worked in teams to complete a series of STEM challenges. They were given only a piece of string each and two elastic bands to build pyramid towers as a team without touching the red cups. Some groups even managed to complete the challenge without talking!!!!! A really good fun start to their first day in Year 6.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome back to a new school year and your child’s last one at Cumwhinton Primary School. They are a delightful class and we are really going to enjoy teaching them and helping them prepare for their transition to Secondary School. Working closely along-side me this year is Mrs Strong. Also on a Thursday morning, we are very pleased to have Mrs Batey working to support children in class and Mrs Norris every Friday morning.

In Year 6 this half term the children will be having a sport afternoon on Thursdays, with Mrs Norris. This will involve a variety of sporting activities over the afternoon. All pupils will need their school PE Kits every Thursday (i.e. black/navy shorts; white T-shirt; trainers. Tracksuit bottoms and a sweatshirt would be advisable too for the colder months). We have also booked a variety of sporting coaches to come in and work with the children over the course of the year.

School policy is only stud ear-rings please (if children can't take them out for PE lessons they need to be covered with plasters). The only other jewellery allowed is a watch.

Please make sure all clothes are labelled with child's name (especially school sweatshirts & PE Kits).   

If your child is opting to have a packed lunch please provide a balance between sweet and savoury; there should be no sweets in packed lunch boxes. Please remember we are a NUT FREE school. If you would like to provide your child with a snack for playtime, please ensure that this is either fruit or vegetables only.

From next week, the children will all be given ‘Talk Homework’ every Monday. This is a very important piece of homework, which will prepare your child for their ‘Exciting Writing’ completed in class on Fridays.

Children will be given new spellings to learn every Friday and will be given a spelling test on these spellings on the following Friday each week.

Year 6 is a very important, hardworking year for your children, therefore we try to keep weekends as homework free as possible so that the children have plenty of time for fun and relaxation at the end of each week.

We will try to hear your child read two/three times a week, so of course having their reading book with them every day is important. It is such an enormous benefit to your child if you could hear them read their books every night at home. Please use your child’s home/school diary as a communication between home and school and record any comments about your child’s reading in there too.

Every time your child reads at home they will earn table points for their table. In addition to getting points for reading every night at home they will also earn table points for completing homework on time; having a great work attitude; displaying the Cumwhinton values, super effort and manners, etc. These are in addition to the individual House Points they can also earn. The winning table in class, each week, will each receive a small prize. For exceptional effort by the whole class, the children will be rewarded with one of the marbles out of our class marble jar. When the class has earned all the marbles in our class jar we will have a special class topic themed day, full of exciting activities. Hard work and effort is always rewarded in Scafell.

The big question for our history topic this term is, ‘How has the life of a child in Britain changed Victorian times? For which we had a fabulous introduction yesterday at Beamish Museum. Our science big question is, ‘Have we always looked like this?’ This will be a topic all about finding out about evolution and inheritance.

We want your child to have a happy and productive time in Year 6. Communication between home and school is vital so please call in at the school office (8.30am+) or at the end of the school day (3.20pm+) if there is anything you need to pass on that will help us support your child in school.

We are looking forward to a fun filled, hardworking and happy year working with your children.

Thank you for your continued support.

 

Miss Astell                                              Mrs. Strong                 Mrs. Batey             Mrs Norris

Deputy Head Teacher

(Year 6 Scafell Class Teacher)            (Senior TA)                 (TA)                              (Higher Level TA)
