Den Day

Year 6 had a wonderful day on Friday raising money for The Lunchbowl Network. Everyone came to school in their pyjamas and  had a great time making Dens to share with their friends.  There was another lovely breakfast and the whole day was a great end to SATs week.

Well done to all of the children in Year 6 for their hard work this week.

Year 6 revision links

Here are the links for the websites that I gave out before the Easter holidays. You can all have a refresher of the maths and grammar that we have been doing in class before next week, so that we are all ready to hit the ground running.

Maths:

https://corbettmaths.com/

Choose 5 a day primary and complete the activities in January or February that we have not done in class. There are answers too, so you can check how you are doing. If you have forgotten any of the things that come up don’t forget there are videos to remind and help you.

Grammar:

https://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/en/grammar-practice

This website is great for revision of word classes and tense which is what we have been working really hard at in class. Read through the examples and then scroll to the bottom for games and activities where you have to fill in missing words etc.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise/game/en29punc-game-sentence-shooter

This game requires you to put the correct punctuation into each sentence. You should play the easy version and then move onto hard.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/english-games/7-11-years/punctuation

More sentence and punctuation games for you to play

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/english/spelling_grammar/

Grammar revision games for you to have a go at. Try the punctuation and sentences ones as punctuation doesn’t feature in the website above.

Spelling:

http://spellingframe.co.uk/

This website helps you to learn how to spell all of the Key Stage 2 spelling patterns. There are activities and tests to complete. If you scroll down to the bottom you can also work on the word lists for Year 5 and 6. These are the words you must be able to spell by the end of this year. We will be doing lots of work on this after the holidays, so you can get a head start. Please also work on the silent letters, prefixes and suffixes and endings e.g. cious, tious, cian etc

 

Remember to post a comment to let me know how you get on and if there is anything that you need more help with.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

 

 

 

 

Year 6 Book Club

Hello Year 6

Don’t forget that if you are part of Year 6 book club you need to read to chapter 20 before our next meet.

I hope you are enjoying your books. I am up to chapter 14 and am feeling very worried for the family as the book progresses. Welcome To Nowehere is a real page turner and quite an emotional read. Can’t wait to catch up with you all about your reading and thoughts about events and characters so far.

Homework 23.3.18

Last week we were learning about lines of latitude and climate zones. Yesterday afternoon we were researching different biomes (tundra, rainforest, desert) and we made posters with information.

For homework this week I would like you research a biome of your choice and create a poster with the following information:

What is it?

Where is it?

What is the climate like?

What animals and plants live there?

Interesting facts…

You can add pictures and make a poster or a leaflet. You can draw and write or use the computer. If you made one in class already, you could choose another one to find out about. The national geographic website has lots of information and videos.

Once your poster is done you could take a picture of it and add it to the reply box so we can all see it. Bring them into school too and we can put them on display.

Box Hill

 

Year 5 and 6 had such a wonderful time at Box Hill on Wednesday. We spent the morning learning essential geography skills needed when on an expedition. We enjoyed finding out about what kit to take, how to use a compass and how to read a map, including grid references, map symbols and contour lines. After lunch we used these skills to follow a trail and find our way around Box Hill. It was hard work, but a very enjoyable and active day out in the fresh air. We even had sunshine.

What did you enjoy about Box Hill Year 6?

What was the thing you will remember? Which things did you learn and how might you us these  skills in the future?

 

If you were Prime Minister…

Following on from international day and this week’s homework, I have a question for you. If you were Prime Minister, and your goal was to celebrate diversity in the UK, what special activities and celebrations would you provide for your people? It may be a carnival or a concert maybe. How would you ensure that this diversity is inclusive so that people/groups of people are not left out? How would everyone learn about different cultures and backgrounds? 

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
