Monday 4th May
Hello Year 6,
Just a reminder that all activities and stories will now just be available on Seesaw so make sure you log in regularly!
We are so proud of the learning you are doing at home and we look forward to seeing lots more from all of you!
See you soon 👋🌈
Y6 Home Learning, Summer Term:
We will be using Seesaw to set work going forwards, so please make sure you get your login and activate your account. Using Seesaw means you can share your learning with us and we can reply to you. We will post learning here on the website next week (Monday 27th April) for the final time. We will also move the daily story to Seesaw as well. Now we have some time to see how you learning from home is going, and having spoken to you about it, this is what we will be setting most of you each week:
Writing: 1 activity per week to last several days with drafting, editing and producing a polished piece. Grammar tasks to support your writing will also be included.
SPaG: A SPaG mat to complete daily, and spellings for the week alongside a new, wider menu of activities.
Reading: We will set at least one RIC task and a comprehension each week, there may be a longer task too. We also want you to keep stamina reading your own books or the online books on Oxford Owl each day.
Maths: There will be mighty maths/flashback sheets each day and a link to the White Rose Maths website which shows a 'teaching' video to help with home learning and then some linked questions. We also want you to keep working on those vital times tables every day.
LCC: There will be a task uploaded each week for you to try, often these will be open ended so you can use your creativity!
Some of you may have different tasks and learning sent through to this list, so we can help you in the best way.
The timetable we will add is a suggestion about how long to spend on each task, but it is really up to you what you do each day and how you can fit your learning in with what is happening at home. For example, you may do more on one day and have one day with less to do. Please just complete as much as you feel able each day, it would be lovely to see some of your learning shared with us on Seesaw so we can comment on it and let you know what has gone well and help you with any difficulties and improvements
Maths for the first two weeks after Easter...
Here is the work that has been set for you on angles for the first two weeks back after Easter.It is the same work that has been sent out in your pack but it has different flashback cards and more worksheets. It also has helpful videos to remind you about how to calculate angles. If you click on the link below and select 'Week 2' all the work and the answer sheets will be on there for you to do.(Don't click W/C 20th as we are just catching up on some of the work that we missed last term). Don't worry about the measuring angles section as you probably don't have a protractor and it will be tricky to measure them on the computer/ipad!
Mrs Wilson, Miss Davis, Miss Sutcliffe and Mrs Sefton, with Mrs Riley, Mrs Boyle and Mrs Price hope that you all stay well and safe while school is closed. We will miss you all very much at school, but will be calling you to keep in touch and putting videos and extra learning ideas on here - so do keep looking back frequently. New items will be added below. You are all very special to us, so please do look after yourselves :)
Across the country, children are drawing rainbows and putting them in their windows to show hope and to give others something to look out for as they get their daily exercise. Let's spread some joy Year 6 - get some rainbows - big or small - up in your windows to remind us all that beautiful things come from stormy times :)
25th March, from Mrs Wilson.
Hi all, it's been lovely hearing from so many of you when we call that you are staying well (and home) and completing some of the things we sent, as well as some of your own topic and art ideas. We are getting more packs ready for you for after the Easter Holidays, but more about that later! If nobody answered this week when we rang (and we haven't tried everyone yet) then hopefully next time we'll be able to catch up. Remember to use the links on the website for extra ideas and if any adult in your house is on twitter, then if they follow the school account (@GrangeFarmLS14) ideas are going on there. Stay safe, we miss you all :)
Hi Year 6,
If you go to the the children’s drop down menu, under the ‘Video Resources’ section you can listen to the first 3 chapters of our new class book, Holes by Louis Sachar. 📖 We will add to this often so keep looking back!
Home learning: if you're healthy, then keep yourself fit!!
Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) is going to do a live workout called PE with Joe on his Youtube Channel, TheBodyCoachTV.
He says of it: ‘It’s a workout specifically designed for kids because when the schools are closed there is no PE. Don’t worry, I’ve got you – I’m going to take this over. ‘I’m going to get your kids moving, feeling energised, positive, optimistic. So tune in Monday morning 9am and every day Monday to Friday. It’s a 30 minute session for little kids right up to secondary school to get involved and have fun. We’re going to be doing loads of basic exercises, you don’t need a lot of room.’
The Grange Farm Year 5 (now year 6)Debating Team joined teams from White Laith, Crossgates and Beechwood (our Trust partner schools) at Chapel FM, to take part in a debate which was broadcast over the radio! Check out our excellent debating skills by following this link . . .
