Hello lovely children of Year 6!
We hope you are all well and are ready for another week of exciting learning! We have got some brilliant tasks coming your way this week so keep your eye on the Year 6 page.
You are being superstars at the moment – we are all so very proud of you! Keep smiling, working hard and enjoying the sunshine.
Please do continue to send us pictures of your lovely work and the odd picture of your wonderful animals helping you to complete your tasks :)
Lastly, thank you to everyone who has entered Jae Malone’s competition to win a signed set of her books. Do not fear if you haven’t got round to it yet – you have until the 4th May to enter! See the information in the next section if you are interested.
Have a WONDERFUL day!
Mrs Silvester, Miss Pettitt and Mrs Chapman
Don’t forget you can email us on email@example.com. We would love to hear from you if you have a question, need a password, need some help, want to show us your work or even just say hello! Please get your grown up’s permission before you email us. We look forward to hearing from you. We may not reply the same day!
Presentation – Please remember to do your very best work. Handwriting and presentation are as important at home as they are in school. You can complete your work in a book or if you need lined or squared paper you can get it here.
Note for parents: Hopefully your children will enjoy working through these activities and can do independently. We completely understand it may be difficult to complete all these tasks due to other family commitments or you are working from home, so please do not worry; complete what you can with your child.
Ongoing Daily Activities
As well as the learning tasks we upload each day, there are a few ‘extras’ that you could have a go at, if you get time.
TTRockstars – Play 5 garage games + 5 studio games. Mrs Chapman will be online at 11am today in the Year 6 Arena area provided the website is running properly. Her TT Rockstar name is Zander Madden and will play games in the Wembley Stadium area.
Reading – Read for at least 20 minutes every day.
Weekly spellings – Practise these everyday in your spelling booklets – you can find this week’s set here: Week 2 – Main Spelling List Week 2 – Less Tricky Spelling List
Daily physical activity which you enjoy. Challenge yourself! Remember Joe Wicks is still there to keep us moving.
Competition Reminder – closing date 4th May
Jae Malone, the author of ‘Silver Linings’ unfortunately could not visit us last month because of the Covid situation. However, she is incredibly keen to make sure we keep our imaginations fired and let our love of writing stories grow. Therefore, she has sent some fun ideas on how to create short stories. With these writing prompts you may be able to come up with a brand new story idea that no one else has ever thought of. You don’t have to write stories down, you may picture them in your mind or be a storyteller to members of your family.
As well as these fun story creating ideas, she has set us an exciting challenge. If you would like to win a signed set of Jae Malone’s trilogy, then why not enter her creative writing competition?
All you have to do is send your completed Indiana story from last term. If you have already sent us uploaded photos of your completed story or sent it as a Word document, then all you have to do is ask us to submit it to Jae’s competition. If you didn’t send us your completed story, you have until 4th May to complete your story and send it to us. Remember to use the firstname.lastname@example.org address for your entries.
We have loved seeing photographs of the brilliant Maths work you have been doing at home – keep it up!
