Y6 Letter re 1 June start

What have you been up to? Send us your pictures so we can all share. Have a look at Hayden and her family that Elise created! Charlotte has a little furry friend helping her do her school work, she's also been busy making loomband bracelets and creatures

 

Week commencing  1st June  2020:   https://action.wildlifetrusts.org/page/57739/petition/1 Wild activities, lots to do when you are out and about on a walk or at home in the garden.

 

 

Home learning in case of school closure

 

Please check here each Monday for a list of activities Year 6 will be expected to complete during the week.

 

Hello Super Six!  Welcome to your home learning laugh Remember what Dr Suess said "The more that you read, the more things you will  know, the more that you learn, the more places you'll go". 

 

Welcome back to our Summer 2 term.  What lovely weather we have had over the half term, I do hope you were able to enjoy it somehow. Benji is really enjoying his walks and extra time in the garden, he has finally has a haircut so he is feeling much cooler now! On his walks I have seen so many rainbows in windows and drawn on driveways, have you done one?  We know from our R.E. lessons that the rainbow is a symbol of hope. On a run the other day I even saw some deer in a field in Tickhill just standing there giving me a very strange look! In Whitby we would have done a lot of sketching around the abbey and we would have looked at the artist David Hockney this half term, look at the youtube links I have given to discover more about this artist and try to emulate his style.  We also continue thinking about fossils and animals over time, we would have gone fossil hunting in Whitby but first we would have spent some time learning about them and we can still do that bit.

Each day there will be core learning tasks set for you to do (English, maths, SPaG and reading),  we need to keep your skills going ready for secondary school.  There will also be one foundation subject activity each day, as well as our morning P.E. with Joe Wicks.

My wish for you now...that you have laughter to kiss your lips, beauty for your eyes to see, sunsets to warm your heart and rainbows to give you hope.  Smiles when sadness intrudes, hugs when spirits sag and comfort on difficult days.  Faith so you can believe and confidence when you are in doubt.  Patience and courage to accept yourself and to always have love.

 

Week commencing  1st June  2020 This week we are looking at writing a diary entry in English (remember when we did those in our WW2 topic?) and in maths we are continuing our topic on shape and co-ordinates.

 

Don't forget to check work for teacher comments

DON'T FORGET - Please submit your piece!!

We haven't been able to do our SATs this year - or can we?  What if we changed the acronym to Share A Talent (SAT)?

Over the next two weeks, think about your talents, practice and create a short video, if it is small enough to email send it that way, or you could create a Youtube and send the link. I will need to collect them all at some point so I can do something with them.  If you can dance then SATs it! (Share your Talent), if you do martial arts, stick your uniform on and show us your talent, all you footballers get your kit on and show us some skills, piano playing, baking, painting or drawing, singing, you might just want to show us your awards for a talent - you have so many talents between you. smiley

  Enjoy.  HAVE A LOVELY WEEKENDlaugh

 

Where is Mrs Lowe?  I know many of you were disappointed that we were unable to complete our class text and enjoy listening to it being read.  I hope to be able to record myself reading to you (as we do most days) so we can complete the book, keep checking our class page.  You will also need to try and guess where I am reading from  See below

 

Other ideas - Boredom is a state of mind only 

  • Design and make some paper aeroplanes - remember our WW2 cars?  Use your DT knowledge, evaluate and improve.  How far will yours fly?  In a straight line?  Can yours do tricks in the air?
  • Paint pebbles from the garden
  • Got any old socks?  Make puppets and

record a show on your phone

  • Have a dance-a-thon with a friend on line
  • Make music - be inventive, recycle and make instruments, create a beat, write a song - use your previous knowledge of what we have done in music, keep the tempo and consider the dynamics
  • Got a garden? Go in it - what can you see?  Learn how to dig up the weeds.
  • Recycle - do some junk modelling
  • Tidy your room!
  • Ask for a helpful job
  • Bake
  • Make a TV show - use lego or anything you think of, record it on your phone
  • Have a think what you could do.

 

This week's art - Frottage

Following the tutorial on National Academy (building on our previous class work) here are some of your optical illusions

75th Anniversary VE Day 8th May 2020

Tickhill businesses have set up the "Rainbow Challenge".  Create a picture of a rainbow supporting our NHS and deliver to one of the shops to display, they want to cover as many windows as possibleheartyes  Let's join in.  You may be able to drop it off when you are doing daily exercise or ask an adult who has to go to the shops.  Or send it to me by our class email and I will deliver it.

Some of our creations for the Queen's birthday cake - hope the ones you made were delicious! Fin even used a WW2 recipe!

Children of key workers learning and having fun

Don't forget to have a look at our new worship page, it can be found under the children tab - enjoy

 

Why don't you enter our Easter competition?


Design your very own Easter basket, send your completed entry to our class email.  These will all be sent to our school council page and our wonderful school council will judge and announce the winners.  Entries need to be submitted by Monday 13th April.

 

Let's get creative and have some fun!

Where's Mrs Lowe?

Happy Easter everyone

Happy Easter everyone 1

I just wanted to make you aware that Twinkle, an online educational publishing house, producing teaching and educational material have offered free access to all their resources for one month, it is totally free of charge for one month and I think it is a good resource to use for revision purposes when the children are not in school and during usual term-time. 

 

Setting this up is really easy to do - go to ww.twinkle.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS

 

I recommend the year 6 maths work for revision purposes, the year 6 and UKS2 reading comprehensions especially the 3 mark ones and the SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) ones for year 6.

 

The answers are given so work can be checked and the children can use this checking as their learning curve.

 

I hope you will find this useful if you decide to use it, as a free resource it is a good one to have (normally costs us!)

 

Have fun!smiley

Forest school fun - we learned some first aid, how to make a hammock and toasted marshmallows (and then we raced Mr Dickinson!)

Sport Relief activities

Welcome back to our Spring 2 term.  As I sit here writing this I can see some blue sky and the snowdrops and daffodils peeping through the ground, Spring is definitely here and we have a wonderfully busy half term ahead of us. I trust everyone had a lovely break and enjoyed some R & R.  Mrs Allen and I look forward to hearing about, and sharing with the children, all the holiday adventures.  

 

This term we begin our new topic "What did the Greeks do for me?".  An interesting question to ask.  It is a history based topic and we will be learning about the impact ancient Greece has had on modern Britain including the notion of democracy, we will investigate how knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources as we describe the ideas, beliefs and attitudes of all groups of people in ancient Greece and how artefacts and ruins tell us about their culture, military and religious beliefs.  I'm looking forward to our launch activity on Monday 2nd March.

 

Our class reader is "Who Let The Gods Out?" by Maz Evans.  This book will give us opportunities to also study Greek myths and legends and we will be writing some of our own, as well as creating a non-chronological report on a mythical creature.

For LGBTQ month, we shall read the book "Worm Loves Worm" by J.J. Austrian.  This will give us a lovely opportunity to discuss stereotypes and build on our school value of acceptance.

 

In R.E. we will be digging deeper into connections between biblical texts and what Christians believe about Salvation as we approach Easter as well as how Christians put their belief into practice.

 

P.E. will be on Monday and Thursday.  However, please ensure P.E. kit is always in school as we never know when another opportunity will arise or a date will change.

 

Homework will be given on a Friday and should be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.  Please don't struggle, or let the children struggle, with homework.  Mrs Allen and I are here to help.  Homework is a way of us checking that knowledge is embedded, so if it's not quite there we need to know so we can help further.

 

Our weekly Aspire club to help us in preparation for our SATS will begin on Tuesday 25th February 3.30 - 4.30 and will continue each Tuesday.

 

I'm looking forward to our new half term, should you have any questions or queries please do contact me.  Feel free to look around our classroom and enjoy the celebratory displays of all our hard work.

Dates for your diary:

 

 

 

Our Ancient Greek day

Welcome to our three new class members

A visit from our local historical society to help us with our local history study about Tickhill in WW2

Our stick insects have grown to quite a size now!

Our Remembrance Service

Inspector Blake and PC Paul came to share with us all about cyberbullying

Children in Need fun with our buddies

W/C 7th October we hope to go on a wellie walk to inspire us as we create poetry for Remembrance day.  We will walk around the duck pond and to the church yard war memorial, we will focus on the wonder of life around us in nature and the contrast of war.  Wellies would be great, but any change of footwear (trainers or walking boots) would be just as great, it's only to avoid  treading mud all over school when we get back!

Evacuation to Perlethorpe

Helping our Reception buddies to settle in to the St Mary's way

On our transition days we had lots of fun - we buried a time capsule, began to look at our topic of the Battle of Britain, did some art and played some silly games with water.
