Have a great half term!

Wednesday 20th May

English

Today I want you to have a go at building some sentences. Remember, this is not about CHANGING words, this is about ADDING MORE DETAIL.

Start with a sentence that describes the picture from Monday, with…

What: I found myself at the bottom of some stairs.

Now let’s start to add more detail.

When: Last week, I found myself at the bottom of some stairs

Where: Last week, on my mountain hike, I found myself at the bottom of some stairs.

How: Last week, on my mountain hike, I surprisingly found myself at the bottom of some stairs.

Why: Last week, on my mountain hike, I surprisingly found myself at the bottom of some stairs because I had taken a different route to normal.

 

Have a go at this using a different sentence! Can you try this with a few. Maybe you could build your sentence with some of the features we’ve used in class as well.

 

Maths

Check out today’s YouTube video for work. We’re revising long division today!

 

History

Have a go at the reading comprehension about the Mayan’s today. Read the text and then skip to the CHALLENGE section (miss out the question boxes). Try ans answer the questions in section A, B and C - if you came to the hall with me on a Monday and a Tuesday morning for reading you can also try section D. 

 

Life skills

It’s life skills day again – what can you learn today? Will you make the tea for everyone in the house? Will you help out with the washing? Is there anything you could learn that might help you when you go to high school? Can’t wait to see what you learn!

Long division revision

Tuesday 19th May

English

You task for today is to extend your vocabulary, so what I want you to do is look at the vocabulary that you added on yesterday and see if you can use an online thesaurus to uplevel some of the words you chose. There’s some nice phrases and ideas on this website too https://www.words-to-use.com/words/winter/

Also see if you can use SHAMPOO to help add in some different sentence ideas: simile, hyperbole (over exaggeration), alliteration, metaphor, personification, onomatopoeia and oxymoron (opposites). Try to add AT LEAST two of these into your ideas.

 

Maths

Today I’ve set you an escape room challenge. Work through the powerpoint solving the clues, to reveal a passcode to ESCAPE THE FOREST!

 

PSHE

Today we’re going to look at how we vie ourselves, how others view us and how we can turn negative thoughts into positive thoughts. Have a go at the ‘how do people see me’ activity first. Then try out the ‘making negative thoughts into positive thoughts’ sheet. See how many times today you can turn a negative thought into a positive one.

If you’re finding this one tricky, maybe ask an adult if they can help you turn the negative thought into a positive one – ONLY WHEN THEY HAVE TIME!

 

PE

Get your daily movement in today! Where will you go and how will you move? Will you walk, bike, skateboard, dance, skip, play football? I want to see pictures of you keeping active and keeping moving.

Monday 11th May 2020

Good morning Year 6! Hope you had a lovely weekend in the sun – I can’t believe how much the weather has changed in just a day.

 

Today should have been SAT’s day – some of you will sad to miss them and some of you will be over the moon! Still, we are so proud of how hard you worked towards them since September.

 

A poem for Y6 – CLASS OF 2020

Today is the day SAT’s would have started,

The classroom set up and the tables parted.

The rules on the board, the display wall covered,

The workbooks away, out of sight in the cupboard.

Instead you are home and doing your bit,

Protecting your families from getting sick.

It’s important right now, we’re in lockdown you see,

Being a part of world history.

You’ve worked so hard, you should be proud,

You’ve practiced your SPAG and times tables out loud.

You’ve practiced algebra to the Nth degree,

And now the tests will no longer be.

Some may be sad they can’t take the tests,

“Hip hip hooray”, I’ve no doubt said the rest.

I don’t need SAT’s results to tell me,

How hard you’ve worked – it’s easy to see!

Year 6, let me shout it out loud,

You’ve made your teachers very proud!

So please continue to learn, fill that brain up full,

And please remember - we think you are wonderful!

VE day!

As you will have all heard, tomorrow is the celebration of the 75th anniversary of VE day. I have been learning all about my grandad Samuel Siddall who served in the army. Below is a photo of him and some other documents we have found including a letter from one of his friends that was sent from India! 

 

I would like you to do a project about VE day. This could be a powerpoint all about VE day, it could be research about a family member who served in the army, it could be drawing of people celebrating the war was over - whatever you want! It doesn't have to be completed today so if you want to speak to a family member or need certain materials - that's ok!

 

Have a good day and make the most of this sunshine!

Use all the knowledge you’ve learnt this week to calculate the missing angles!

 

English

Take a look back at your grumpy household item! What was it grumpy about? Today we want you to plan out a letter you might write out.

How would you start your informal letter? Look at how the crayons started theirs!

Firstly, your first paragraph should be about your first complaint – bullet point what you want to say in this paragraph

In your second paragraph, bullet point what your second complaint would be

For your final paragraph, bullet point how you would like them to change their behaviour

 

Now we’d like you to go back and add in some vocabulary you might use. Could you think about what language your object would use? These letters are quite informal but remember there’s a difference between informal and slang!

 

Email or tweet us your plans so we can see what your object is unhappy about

 

Music

Use your Yumu log in to log back on and carry on from where you were up to last week. I’ve been checking to see who’s been logging on!

Write the next day of your diary of your new life as a crayon! What have they been up to with their first day of freedom. We can't wait to read them!

 

PSHE

Sometimes we have feelings that make us uncomfortable, that might be worry, sadness, anger, upset, fear. These feelings are all normal and over the next few weeks we’ll be looking at how we can react to these emotions positively, but today we’re going to look at what emotions we feel, how they make us feel when we have them and where we feel those emotions in our body.

Task 1: Play the boardgame if you have a dice, if not maybe you can find an online one. The instructions are on the sheet! You can play this on your own if you’ve no one to play with

Task 2: Now look at the second worksheet – think about each emotion and when you feel that emotion, where do you feel it in your body? Do you get sweaty hands, butterflies in your tummy, do you cry, do you pick your nails, does it make you shaky? Use the sheet to fill in each emotion.

Task 3: Finally, have a go at the helping hand worksheet. Think about when you’ve had a certain emotion and how it made you feel.

Challenge: this week write down any emotions you feel, how did you know you were feeling this emotion? What was happing in your body? What made you feel this emotion? How did you make yourself feel better if it was an uncomfortable emotion?

 

A great way to help us with our mental health and well-being is yoga! Have a go and this one today and see how you feel before, compared to after. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEPxPkQY6V8

Exploring angles in shapes

Today we're going to use angles in a triangle to help us work out the angles in different shapes

Morning Year 6!

Hope you’re all ok. So lovely to see some of you on twitter and everything that you’ve been doing.

 

English

Today we are going to imagine we are one crayon (any colour) and we are writing a diary of what has happened since we quit our job as a crayon. Pick one crayon and model writing a diary in the form of a story board. Where have you been? How do you feel? Do you miss the other crayons/Duncan? Or are you happy to be away?

 

Head over to Youtube to read my diary entry. Try to identify some of the features I have used and use them in your own writing.

 

Maths

Angles in a triangle (27/4/20)

Looking over some of the tricker questions from Friday and giving you some tips on some harder ones too

 

Friday 24rd April 2020

English

The crayons in our story came to life and were unhappy with how they were being used. Today we want you to explore your house for an unhappy everyday object. Find it, and put it in front of you on the table.

Draw your object, turning it into a character and answer these questions:

-Why is you object unhappy? List three main points

-Who or what are they unhappy with?

-Who are they telling they are unhappy?

-What would make them happy again?

-Anything else you’d like us to know about your unhappy object

 

Get creative with this one! I’m already excited to see what you come up with!

 

I have decided mine would be the washing machine!

  • No days off living in the Clayton house!
  • Never thanked after washing all the clothes
  • Always having to clean up after two little boys whose clothes are always muddy/full of food!

He wants a holiday!

 

Maths

Today we are going to learn how to find the angles in a triangle. Have a look at the powerpoint below to start with. Two things to remember – if the triangle has 2 little lines on them, it means that those sides and angles are equal. On exercise 2 task 2 remember that angles around a point add up to 360’ and angles on a straight line add up to 180’.

 

The answers are at the end of the powerpoint so no peeking until you’ve had a go! Also, I’ve deleted a couple of questions off the sheet so don’t let that confuse you!

 

High school

We will be doing more on your transition to high school over the next few months but there are some good videos and starting points in the lesson below.

Thursday 23rd April

Good morning! Hope you’re all doing okay today. Keep up the hard work at home and keep sharing 😊

 

English

Today we want you to look back at the conversations you wrote yesterday and edit them. Look for:

-Spelling mistakes

-Missing capital letters

-Inverted commas around speech

-Punctuation inside your speech (?!, and only if end of the sentence .)

-Comma before speech if who said it is first

-New speaker, new line

-Capitals at start of speech

-Verb instead of said

-Have you added detail in between speech, can you add some more?

-Does it make sense?

 

Maths

Look through the opposite angles powerpoint and then have a go at the worksheets. They get harder and harder as they go along – how far can you get!?

 

Reading

Go grab the latest book you’re really enjoying and read for 15 minutes. If you’ve not got one at home why don’t you try this Sherlock Holmes book from Oxford Reading Tree https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/digital_books/2101.html You might just need to set up a log in with an adult to access it. Or you can even pick a book of your choice from the free eBook library https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/?view=image&query=&type=book&age_group=Age+9-11&level=&level_select=&book_type=&series=#

Morning Year 6! Hope you’re all ok and enjoying some of this sunshine (and wind!)

 

English

Please see the link below for an example of how to write a conversation between two crayons. I apologise for not writing it ‘live’ but due to my left handed issues/how I hold a pen, you couldn’t see what I was writing! The main features you should be including is correct speech punctuation, informal writing, correct punctuation and try not use as many alternatives to said. If I see some split speech in there, I’ll be SO impressed!

 

Maths

Today you will be learning how to find angles around a point. Please look at the links below for today’s work, a YouTube video with Miss Kay and an extra challenge!

Here is an online alternative to the first worksheet:

https://www.interactive-maths.com/angles-around-a-point-ggb.html

 

 

SPAG

Here is a vocabulary task for you to try. You have to match the correct word to the sentence. Don’t worry about the timer!

https://quizlet.com/28540606/match

 

Art

The art we will be doing today is linked to our new class book ‘The Day The Crayons Quit’. There are two options – if you have wax crayons in your house, try task one. If not, have a go at task 2.

Task 1

You can set this piece of art out however you like – you don’t have to copy mine!

 

The is a video on the school YouTube channel about how to melt the wax.

 

You will need:

Wax crayons

Paper

Newspaper or something to protect the table (I didn’t do this so I have to clean up waz after this!)

A hairdryer

Glue

 

Step 1.

Hold the crayon in the position you want it on your piece of paper.

 

Step 2

Hold the hairdryer over the wax crayon until it starts to melt and drips down the page. Please make sure you don’t burn your hands and ask an adult to help!

 

Step 3

Continue to melt the wax from your chosen crayons and build up your picture. You can use the crayon box if you want to. I placed my crayons on the page rather than glued them as I struggled to get them to stick!

 

Step 4

Please share your artwork with us via twitter, email etc.

 

 

Task 2  

Draw a pack of crayons with some of them either sticking out or out of the pack. Have another look at the book and decide what would be an appropriate thing for them to say. Then write that into a speech bubble and stick it on top of your drawing.

 

Angles around a point

Moving on to working out angles around a point today. Use the link on the website or the first worksheet to practice this skill and the there's a second work...

Tuesday 21st April

Maths

Check out the PDF below for today’s Maths work – this will talk you through how to calculate angles on a straight line. Then complete the worksheet! There’s some on the bottom to really challenge you – let’s see if you can give them a go. The answers are on the next page when you’re done.

 

English

If you’ve not already been and watched it, then make sure to check out our story for this half term at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hrd-Wdxbg-Q&t=25s

Look back at the conversation WAGOLL we used earlier this year today. Can you find the key features like we normally do? Look for what makes the speech successful, adverbs, verbs instead of said, apostrophes for omission (where an apostrophe has replaced a missing letter), relative clauses and subordinating conjunctions.

 

PE

Make sure to complete todays Joe Wicks workout

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

We hope you’ve been keeping up with these daily and making sure you get out once a day. I’ve been a little poorly over the last few weeks but now I’m feeling better I’m making sure I get out for a walk once a day and also doing a daily workout at home!

If you fancy a change, or something a little bit more relaxing today, then check out this HARRY POTTER themed yoga https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-BS87NTV5I I may even have a go myself: I was very excited when I saw it.

 

PSHE

Right now it’s more important than ever to make sure we are looking after our mental health just as much as our physical health. But what is mental health?

Take a look at the Powerpoint attached below to find out what mental health is, and what mental health problems some people might face.

Remember when I asked you to make your ‘Happy Me’ list? (If you don’t then go and do this now: create a list of 10 things that make you really happy and you love doing)

 

I want you to pick one thing off that list and go and do it right now!! Doing things that we love and switching off is a really great way to look after our mental health, especially at the moment. If you’re feeling a little sad or bored, use your happy me list to pick up your mood! I've also attached the activities mentioned on the Powerpoint if you want to have a go at those.

Science

Today we want you to start to learn about what classification is. Take a look at the information on this page, watch the video and complete the activity at the bottom of the page. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zn22pv4/articles/z3nbcwx

 

Find the definition of these words: Species, related, classification, similar, features, vertebrate, invertebrate

 

What is classification? Can you write a definition using the information you’ve read

Over Easter you researched an animal, which group do you think your animal would be classified into? Could you do some research to check.

 

SPAG

See how many of the word classes you can remember in one minute!

Using the picture below, write some sentences that use prepositions or prepositional phrases and underline them.

 

 

If you have any questions, don’t forget you can email myself and Mrs Clayton for help.

Angle revision

Today we look at revising how to measure angles and I set you a few challenges!

Monday 6th April

 

Good morning :)

 

Today should have been the start of our Easter holidays! So I thought I'd set you some projects to work on over the next few weeks.

 

Your challenges:

- Our next Science topic is 'Living things and their habitats' we would like you to pick an animal and do some detailed research on that animal's characteristics. Using the description you've found I'd like you to create a detailed model of that animal however you wish to do so! You may even take this a step further and create a diorama (google that for some ideas)

- Decorate an egg (if you can find any in the shops)

-Make hot cross buns

-Make some chocolate crispy cakes (with some mini eggs of course)

-Weave an Easter basket

-Create a palm cross

-Create an Easter themed card based on the RE work Mrs Clayton set you a few weeks ago - could you maybe send it to someone you know who is self isolating/vulnerable/local care home

 

Obviously don't forget that if you want to carry on working you've still got your SATs revision booklets and there's also another link to below that has a work timetable with daily ideas for the upcoming week: https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/classroom-secrets-home-learning-timetable/?selectedyear=year6&selectedday=monday#timetable

 

Hope everyone is okay,

 

Miss Kay :)

 

Friday 3rd March 2020

 

Morning Year 6! We are at the end of week 2. Hope you are all ok. As promised from yesterday, here are the answers to yesterday’s maths.

Answers

  1. 34cm
  2. 48m
  3. 11cm or 110mm
  4. 500m
  5. 56cm
  6. 314mm
  7. 44m
  8. 88cm

I also did my worry sheet which I imagine has some similarities to yours!

  1. Not knowing when this will end
  2. I worry my children aren’t doing enough each day
  3. I worry about how much toilet roll we get through haha!

I felt better once I’d thought about them and wrote them down. Then I went to the shop and found toilet roll so that’s one problem solved!

 

Maths: I have attached a sheet about finding the area of compound shapes. There are 3 levels so choose the one you feel is best for you. If it’s too easy, go to the next one!

 

English: In the Easter booklet, there is an Easter poem and questions for you to complete. There are also some multi-clause sentences to have a go at if you want to stretch yourself.

 

PE: If you head over to Joe Wicks YouTube page, there are workouts there waiting for you (unless you have done it live at 9am already!)

 

Easter scavenger hunt: I have also attached an Easter scavenger hunt for you. You will need a partner so ask a sibling or an adult to play with you. One of you needs to hide the clues for the other to find. They are only short so you could quickly write them on a piece of paper and then hide them.

 

Have a good day!

 

Mrs Clayton

Thursday 2nd April 2020

Morning Year 6!

English – Please complete page 3 from the Easter booklet that I put up yesterday. There is an extract from a story and then some questions for you to answer.

 

Maths – Today I want you to find the perimeter of compound shapes. We did this just before we finished so remember that you have to use the clues given to you in order to work out the missing measurements. I will post the answers on here tomorrow so make sure you keep your work safe.

 

PSHCE – Some of you may have a few more worries than normal. I know I do! Attached is a sheet to help you write your worries down. I’m going to complete it too today and I’ll share mine with you tomorrow. If you want to share yours with an adult or a sibling in your house, that’s great. Or with a friend (not face to face obviously!)

 

Staying home is hard but necessary at the moment. Let me know what you have been doing to keep yourselves busy (apart from completing all your school work if course!) Maybe it will inspire someone to try something different today.

 

Have a good day and I’ll speak to you tomorrow!

 

Mrs Clayton

Today we would normally be doing PE, so check out Joe Wick's live workout from this morning and give it a go if you haven't done so already!

 

PSHE: Make a list of 10 activities that you really really enjoy doing and call it your 'Happy List' e.g. reading, colouring, listening to music, playing board games, doing a jigsaw etc. If you start to feel a bit sad at home because you can't get outside, then go to your 'Happy List' and pick an activity to do. Get whoever is at home involved and get them to write their own happy list!

Monday 23rd March

 

Maths - I have attached below the Fluent in Five document for this week. Each morning, get the questions up on a screen and your notepad. Set a 5 minute timer like we would in class and answer all your questions. Scroll down after your time is up and mark them. Do this at the beginning of each day like we would in class.

 

Also answer 10 questions from one of your problem solving and reasoning booklets.

 

English - Look at the WAGOLL for the Balanced argument in your packs (I've attached it below too). Can you find all the features of a balanced argument and spot any sentences types that have been used?

 

Science/DT - Make yourself a shadow puppet theatre like we did in school - base it on your favourite book. We'll be using this later in the week for an experiment! Take a picture and tag school on Twitter: Miss Kay will be checking to see what you all managed to create.

Last day!

Last day! 1

Macbeth speech

This half term we have been reading Macbeth. We created a spooky setting description and this week have been building up to writing a section of the story from Lady Macbeth's point of view. Here you can see some of the speech we created for our stories in groups, which Miss Kay was blown away with, as the children all independently selected language from the story to use in their speech!

Science Day

Science Day 1
Science Day 2
Science Day 3
Science Day 4

For Science day we looked at sustainable food sources and why many people are switching to a vegan/vegetarian diet due to the impact that animal farming is having on global warming and climate change. 

 

Once we had explored this, we became farmers, and researched plants which we could grow in England at this time of year to meet the growing demands of a plant based diet. 

 

We then voted for the most popular fruit/vegetable to grow on our farm (it was the cucumber) and turned this into a bar chart.

 

Finally, we decided to research the pros and cons of the vegan/vegetarian diet to write a balanced argument in our English in a few weeks.

We had such a fun English lesson today planning our next piece of writing. Looking at the pictures above to help us, we added text to say what we thought the characters would be speaking about. After this, we acted it out in order to help us with our writing next week. There were lots of laughs!!

National Poetry Day

Still image for this video
Today is National Poetry Day, which is why we have been looking at performance poetry in English. The theme for this year is change, so we discussed Autumn and change and the Christian festival of Harvest. As our Harvest service is coming up, we practised a poem to perform for the school and parents, adding in actions, expression and sound FXs in order to make our poem a performance. You can see us practising here, but if you want to see the full performance, you’ll have to come to the Harvest service on Monday!

Here are some of our French classroom commands posters, which we created today to stick up in class and use.
