Perins Transition Information

Parents of Year 6 children attending Perins Secondary School in September…

Update from Perins

Perins sent out an email communication last week to all their new Yr6 parents but it would appear that the email may have landed in ‘junk boxes’ or blocked by email providers. Please see important transition updates by following the link to their website https://www.perins.net/transition/ 

This website will be updated regularly with information for both parents/carers and students as the term progresses.

Induction Day

This has now been provisionally moved to Thursday 2nd July. 

Many thanks,

Year 6 Team 

Year 6 – Friday, 1st May, 2020

Good Morning Year 6 and Happy Friday!

Well done learners! You have had a great week so far and we have seen so many wonderful examples of your creativity and resilience. The work you are sending in is simply brilliant to see and the news we receive of all the other exploits you are getting up to is just proof that you really are the best Year 6 group in the world.

Only one more day of school tasks before you can enjoy your weekends. We hope you all have a successful day of learning today and a lovely weekend with your families.

 

Friday's worship

Enjoy today’s worship with Boris here.

Maths

Today’s maths will be taken from our CGP Number, Ratio and Algebra book. We will be completing page 26 – Multiplying and Dividing by fractions- and page 27 – Estimating and Checking. If you haven’t got your book handy, you can download them here NRA pg 26 Multiplying and Dividing by Fractions        NRA pg 27 Estimating and Checking

It is important to check your answers and mark your work before you close your books in order to maximise your learning.

We are going to practise the skill of reported speech in our CGP books today. However, if you need this time to finish your Bibo writing on the final chapter in this life then you do not need to also do these pages. Spend your time creating a wonderful piece of writing on Bibo’s final chapter in his life.

For those who have finished their Bibo writing (please send a photo to the Year 6 email account if you can – we would love to read them) then you will complete pages 18 and 19 in your CGP Punctuation book. If you don’t have your book, you can download the pages here: Punctuation pages 18-19 Inverted commas 

(For those children with their books who have already completed this page, please do pages 20 and 21 instead.)

Remember, you need to check the answers and mark your work. Punctuation page 18 answers    Punctuation page 19 answers

You need to ask an adult to test you on your spelling list today. Make sure you have revised these words with the ‘eau’ pattern before being tested. Good luck! If you want to earn  bonus recognition points, create interesting sentences using this week’s spelling words. e.g. With eyes wide open, Margaret stared longingly at the delicious-looking cherry gateau which sat in the baker’s window; she knew she shouldn’t buy it but it took real determination to walk away.

P.E.

This lesson follows on from last week’s home Olympics activity. If you didn’t get around to it last week, don’t worry you can start today! This half term in PE we are going to be completing our own Home Olympics! We have a range of activities for you to have a go at. There are 5 activities which require different skills. See if you can complete each one. For each activity you need to count how many repetitions you are able to do in a certain time or time yourself and see how long you can keep going. A stop watch or a timer on a phone would be useful for these activities. Remember to fill in the next section of your record card (Week 2). There is a link to the record card below if you are only just starting today and a reminder of the activities also linked below. I wonder how many repetitions you will be able to do. Have you improved from last week?

 

Here are the resources you will need to look at to help you with the challenges – no need to print them. Year 6 PE Lesson 2  PE Record card

Thank you to all you sporting stars who sent in photographs showing us the fun you had in last week’s PE lesson. They were great!

We hope you have woken up refreshed and full of energy for a new day ahead. Let’s make the most of this new day and give it everything we’ve got.

We are continuing with our focus on the story of Bibo, the robot with a 10,000 year warranty (this means it is guaranteed to work for 10,000 years). Yesterday, we focused on a happy part of his life when he had purpose and took great joy from his job of serving ice-cream to the children. Today, we need to contrast that positive writing with one of sadness and loneliness. A long, long time after he was manufactured, we see Bibo with no purpose as there is no-one in the town anymore and no children to make happy.

Follow the PowerPoint to find out what we are looking for in today’s writing.

Art

Today, we will continue our art lesson which we started last Monday. Do you remember the work of Eric Joyner? He was the artist who created wonderful paintings with two of his favourite subjects: robots and doughnuts.

In this lesson, you need to decide on the setting of your picture. Where will your robot be? In a town? In the countryside? At a park? On the beach? You will also need to think how you will incorporate doughnuts into your picture. Will the robots be eating doughnuts, selling doughnuts, climbing doughnuts, throwing doughnuts or even driving doughnuts? Let you imagination run wild.

Follow the PowerPoint below to get some ideas before you make a start on your sketch. Remember, you chose your type of robots and practised drawing them last week. You will need these for today’s lesson.  

Next week, we will be adding colour to complete our picture.
