31.03.20 - Week 2 Continued...
Well it's safe to say that the Year 6 children have made a strong start on TTRockstars battle with a score of 4000+, while the teachers are on 200 :(. I haven't given up yet though! I think us teachers can make a come back!!
Oh and a special well done to Jasmine, Keiren, Ethan, Demi-Leigh and Anderson who have completed their Reading Eggpress tasks already :)...I'm going to set you another one as a treat :)
30.03.20 - Week 2
Hello Year 6!! It's hard to believe that we're into the second week already. I hope that you are all staying indoors and keeping yourselves safe and occupied. There is so much to tell you all.
Firstly, Reading Eggs. I have set you all two tasks on Reading Eggspress. They are both lessons - one is a spelling lesson and the other is a reading lesson. Wel done to all those children who logged in and completed their own tasks last week. A special mention to Jasmine who did the most on Reading Eggs out of the WHOLE school :).Also, special mentions to Anderson, Kieren and Ethan who also completed a lot of tasks.
Secondly, TimesTable Rockstars. Last night I created a challenge. It is the teachers vs Year 6. I regret it already because Year 6 are already over 600 points ahead (thanks to Jamsine, Ethan, Anderson and Demi-Leigh) but I'm confident that the teachers can still win!! Practice makes perfect with your times tables so the more you do, the better you'll get.
I have marked all of your SATs SPAG tests. WOW! I was so impressed with the improvements EVERYBODY made. Every child's score improved and some by incredible amounts so a big well done to you all. I was marking them with a huge smile on my face; you have all done such wonderful things this year, you should be very proud of yourselves.
Mrs Pearson sent me a message to tell me how delighted she was with your SATs reading scores. Again, she was blown away with the progress you have all made and how much you had all managed to improve your scores. She also said that she would like you all to keep reading as much as possible and perhaps have a go at writing a story about anything that you want.
I hope that you are all enjoying the books that you took home. Last night I finished 'Running on the Roof of the World'. I gave it 3 stars out of 5. I really enjoyed it and had been warned by Charlie about a huge shock! Well, he wasn't wrong! If you have read and finished the book, I thought a nice activity to do would be to do some research about Tibet. That is where the main characters are from so finding out about Tibet and its history would be a great use of your time and would help you understand the book more. If you wanted to create an information leaflet I would love to have a read of those when we come back. :) I'm going to start on Holes tonight; I can't wait!!
We have an email (Melburyscience@gmail.com) that I use for the whole school science homework. If anybody would like to show me anything that they have done, they could email pictures or their work to there and I can check it out. It would be lovely to put up some pictures of children's work here so that you can all see what each other have been up to.
Remember to check out the school Twitter page for nice activities to do. Below are a few other websites that I think would be useful.
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ - has a lesson for each day. In Year 6 we would usually use this website for lesson ideas anyway (that's where we get the Problem of the Day and Barvember from).
https://www.theconfidentteacher.com/home-school/ - This website has some lovely activities. Last week they had an art week, while this week is a history week.
I love to look at Google Earth and explore random places. Maybe you could look at an atlas or indeed Google Earth then choose one place from each continent that you would like to visit when you're older. Maybe even write a paragraph about each place explaining why you'd like to visit. I would love to read your thoughts and ideas on that. You could even go a step further and try and see how long it would take you to travel there and how much it would cost.
Anyway, as I said, I hope that you are all safe and well and looking after your families. If you have any spare time after doing your school work, perhaps you could help your parents tidy up or even clean your bedroom!!!! Please remember that all of the adults in Year 6 miss every single one of you and you are always in our thoughts! Hopefully we will see you soon! Take care.
25.03.2019 - Week 1 Continued...
A few children asked about ratio. We haven't got round to teaching that yet so if you would like to learn how to do it, Mrs Sullivan has found some great lessons. Click on the link below to give it a try.
You can print the sheets off and complete them but if you don't have a printer at home, you can just follow along on the screen and have a go at the questions on a sheet of paper. Enjoy!
Also, anytime I come across a nice activity on Twitter, I will post it on the school Twitter page. You don't need to join Twitter, just click the link below to get involved.
23.03.20 - Week 1
Happy Monday everybody! I hope that you had a nice weekend and are keeping both yourselves and your family safe.
Thank you for the challenge on TimesTable Rockstars Matthew...it was a draw! I think that we can both get better scores than that! Both Mrs Morris and I have sent the whole class a challenge, let's see who can beat us!
Well done to the children who have been on Reading Eggs, which is a lot of you. A special mention to Gabby, Matthew and Anya who did the most activities.
I have been reading more of Running on the Roof of the World. If you have your copy at home with you, keep going, it gets REALLY GOOD! I can't start Holes until I've finish this book first so if you've already started, I hope that you are enjoying it - I can't wait to chat about it with you. Remember that if you're stuck for something to do, grab a book! :) Mrs Morris says a big thank you for the book recommendation Gabby, she's loving it (Fing by David Walliams)
I hope that you all have a lovely week, enjoy the time with your families and make the most of the home learning packs that we sent home.
All of the adults in Year 6 are missing you all and we hope to see you soon!!
Welcome to Year 6's Website
This year, Mr Thompson will be Class 6's teacher.
We are very fortunate to have a number of additional adults helping us this year. Mrs Sullivan and Mrs Pearson will be helping in both Literacy and Maths lessons. We will also have Mrs Pearson helping to support the children's learning three afternoons a week.
Please keep checking back to see what we have been up to in Class 6 and to see the photographs of our learning.
Every child will receive two pieces of homework each week (one literacy and one maths). Homework is handed out on a Friday and due back on the following Monday.
Our P.E. days this half term are on a Monday afternoon and a Friday afternoon. Please ensure that your child has appropriate kit on these days. Outdoor trainers and warm clothing is useful as we will be outside as much as possible, weather permitting.
