Half Term Challenge from Mrs Briggs

HALF TERM CHALLENGE FROM MRS BRIGGS:
Calling all KS2 and KS3 students. MFL are running a half term creative competition to make a replica of a landmark from a French, German or Spanish speaking country in any form you like! It doesn’t have to be the whole thing! A gargoyle from Notre Dame in Paris or a tile inspired by the bench in Park Guell in Barcelona would be just as good.  See the 3 powerpoint slides below for more details including where to upload your entry.

Year 6 Home Learning w/b 18th May 2020

Hello Year 6!

Let’s start the week with a few photos.  It has been fantastic to have so many emails and to hear how you have all been getting on.  Please keep them coming this week!

Samuel GRATITUDE SCAVENGER HUNT

This week we will continue with a compulsory maths or English lesson each day alongside an activity from the wider curriculum.  There will also be an optional maths or English lesson each day. We will continue to use The Oak National Academy resources as we have received positive feedback from parents & pupils.

Please do not worry if the work is not completed – we do not want to overburden children or their families. We just wanted to ensure that home learning was available to those who wanted it. If parents have more creative learning activities, please do these instead! It is important that we all continue to enjoy learning! Also remember that breaks and rests are important as are real life skills.

Year 6 pupils could also continue to use their CGP revision books to revisit any areas of learning and also continue with their independent reading (recording their reading in their journals).

Pupils should also have access to Bug Club, Times Table Rock Stars & Purple Mash. They can access these online sites to continue their learning. Any work completed and handed in on Purple Mash will be seen by the class teacher and feedback will be provided.

PE Activities – Keeping fit & healthy

It is also very important to keep active so please continue with your PE activities.  Take a look at the Primary PE blog for lots of physical challenges from Mr Wood. Joe Wicks ‘The Body Coach’ is also continuing to lead a fitness session every day from 9am.

Year 6 Home Learning w/b 11/5/20

Good morning Year 6!

We hope you have had a lovely weekend and maybe took part in some 75th anniversary of VE day celebrations last Friday.  Maybe you had a social distancing street party with your neighbours or celebrated in your house with your family.  It would be lovely to hear about your celebrations in your weekly email, if you haven’t let us know already.

Thank you so much to all of the children and parents who have been emailing us with weekly learning updates.  It is so lovely to hear about what you have been doing and see photos of your amazing work!

If you haven’t managed to do this yet, we really ask that you get in touch.  In these very strange times, it is important that we keep in touch with each other and that we (as teachers) can see your amazing learning.  Here are some pictures of work that has been completed by some of you so far:

This week would have been SATs week so here is a message from us to you…

 

As SATs week arrives, its not quite the same,

The tests that were printed this year never came.

The displays are still up; walls full of maths ‘rules’,

But Year 6 very different at present, in schools.

 

For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,

For others a sigh of pure disbelief,

That you worked really hard in advance of this week,

Expected and Greater Depth marks you did seek.

 

Algebra, fractions, the times table drills,

Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,

Past Present, progressive, SPAG that has us in tears!

You’ve practised and mastered them over the years.

 

Fear not though, the SATs, yes, won’t happen this term,

But remember tests don’t measure everything you learn.

Primary subjects are varied; you’ve always tried your best,

And many of the skills that you’ve gained can’t be defined by a test.

 

So here at CCS you’ve made us so proud,

We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud…

‘Year 6 you amaze us, you’ve come incredibly far…

And we don’t need a test to see how amazing you are!’

 

love from Mrs Murphy and Mrs McNair

This week’s learning is going to be similar to last week as there will be a compulsory English or maths activity each day and then an additional English or maths activity for you to complete as well if you want an extra challenge.  The other activities this week are all going to have a science theme.

Please do not worry if the work is not completed – we do not want to overburden children or their families. We just wanted to ensure that home learning was available to those who wanted it. If parents have more creative learning activities, please do these instead! It is important that we all continue to enjoy learning! Also remember that breaks and rests are important as are real life skills.

Science

You are now going to use all of your science learning from this week to create a quiz for someone else your age.  A 2Do has been set on Purple Mash for you to use the program 2Quiz.  You have all used this program before as you made a quiz for your buddie at the beginning of the year.  Create a quiz to include questions on Charles Darwin, the theory of evolution, fossils and different animal kingdoms.  Use different question types to make your quiz interesting and challenging.  When you have finished don’t forget to hand it in so we can mark your work.

Why not test your quiz on other members of your family.  Do they know as much as you do on the subject?

We would like to start this week by sending you a message:

We hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready to start a new week of home learning.  We have mixed things up a little this week to give you a change from the work that we have set so far.  As they say, ‘a change is as good as a rest’!

It has been fantastic to have so many emails and to hear how you have all been getting on.  Please keep them coming this week!  From next week we would like to start putting photos of you on the blog.  So when you email, include a photo of yourself either doing some work or enjoying a free time activity.  We will put up as many as we can!

**REMINDER** When you have completed any work on Purple Mash please remember to click the ‘hand in your work’ button so we know when to mark your work and give you feedback.  If you have completed all work set on Purple Mash, look out for a special email to celebrate your achievement!

This week there will be a compulsory maths or English lesson each day alongside an activity from the wider curriculum.  There will also be an optional maths or English lesson each day. We have decided as a primary phase to start using the fantastic lessons produced by The Oak National Academy.  It would be good to have your feedback on these lessons so please add a comment to this page to let us know what you think!

By special request, I have also set up another Times Table Rock Stars battle!  Starts Monday 4th May at 9am and finishes Friday 8th May at 3pm.  Who will be the winners this week?

Please do not worry if the work is not completed – we do not want to overburden children or their families. We just wanted to ensure that home learning was available to those who wanted it. If parents have more creative learning activities, please do these instead! It is important that we all continue to enjoy learning!

What have Year 6 been doing?

As we look ahead to a new week, we thought you would all enjoy seeing some photographs of your friends and the different learning they have been doing at home.

Thank you for the photographs and messages we have received, it has been lovely to hear from you. Here are just a few of the photographs we have been sent. Can you spot your friends, your work or yourself?

 

 

 

 

 

Email your teacher with photos of you doing your work and other activities next week and maybe you will appear on the blog!

Thursday Maths Challenge

UPDATE 01.05.20

Well done to all who attempted the maths challenge!  The key was to think about the vowels that are included in the names of the fruits.  For example, banana only has the vowel a.  Orange has the vowels o, a and e.  Any fruits containing the vowel a are placed in the blue hoop; any containing the vowel o are placed in the yellow hoop and any containing the vowel e are placed in the red hoop.

Therefore the solution is:  the kiwi should be placed at E and the mango should be placed at C.

Huge congratulations to Aidan and Giancarlo who both solved the challenge correctly!  

 

Hello everyone!

As it is raining today, I thought I would keep you all busy by setting you a maths challenge!

Add your responses to the comments for this post.  Answer will be revealed tomorrow!

I have placed the banana, lemon, orange and apple, but where do my kiwi and mango go? 

Think carefully!
