Class Blog for Year 6

Friday, 27th March, 2020 

It's nearly the holidays!

           


Bonjour Year 6,


I hope you enjoyed your French lesson yesterday.


Here are my suggestions for today.


Twinkl


Check out the ‘Home Learning Hub’ for age 9 – 11. Why not keep an exercise log like the ‘Joe Wicks’ one that I have downloaded below? You could watch Joe Wicks live at 9am. Alternatively, join in with Mr Jones’ workout on the Head’s blog.


There is also a recipe for making ‘Easter Egg Nests Buns’. It would be great if you could do some cooking over the Easter holidays. It would give you the opportunity to try out the conversion and ratio work we were learning about in maths. Perhaps some of you could try out cutting an onion into eight equal parts. Some of you struggled with that concept during our work on ratio. Make sure you work with an adult.


Other Activities


Try to keep working in your maths, SPAG and reading comprehension books. I have downloaded below some statutory spelling word challenges that you could have a go at over the Easter holidays.


Please also watch the assembly on the ‘Head’s Blog’. I hope it is not too long before we can all see each other again. Until then, please enjoy the holidays, relax and have fun with your families. Happy Easter!

It's time to develop your French.

           


Good morning Year 6,


It’s another beautiful day and the Easter holidays are just around the corner. You deserve your two week Easter holiday because you have worked so hard this term. After tomorrow, there will be no new blogs until Tuesday, 14th April, 2020. In the meantime, here are my suggestions for today.


Twinkl


Check out the ‘Home Learning Hub’ for age 9 – 11. There is a daily timetable including a weekly French session. It might be worth taking a look because the resources are excellent and we were going to learn French in the summer term. It will help you prepare for learning languages at secondary school.


Mathletics


Please go to ‘N – Patterns and Algebra’ and work your way through the activities. This is what we should have been working on in class this week.

English

           


Hi Year 6,


Here are some suggestions for English.


I hope that you will continue to read every day and apply your ‘VIPERS & CO’ skills. Please not that ‘Audible’ has announced that it has made its entire collection of books free for as long as children are not at school. It may be worth taking a look. Please continue to do some work from your reading comprehension and SPAG books. You have all made so much progress that it would be a shame for that not to continue. Now is also the opportunity for you to do some creative writing of your own. Write about what you enjoy the most; use those amazing imaginations that I know you have.
