Year 6

September 2020

Welcome to the Y6 class page. 

It is great to have you all back in school although it feels quite different to what we are used to.  Due to COVID-19, we know and understand that people may need to self-isolate and/or bubbles may have to close.  Fortunately, this should not impact on learning as we will keep you updated with what we are learning in school and provide you with work to do at home if you need to isolate but are not unwell.  Work will be set on Google Classroom so it is important to log in and become familiar with the site.

Please see the summary of our learning challenges, which will be updated every week.

Get Going in Year 6

If you are at home self isolating and you are well enough to do some learning we would like you to go onto Google Classroom to see what work your teacher has set for you.  If you can't, or it doesn't work for you, below this section is what your class are learning this week so see if you can match what you are doing to on here.  if you are REALLY stuck and your can't do either of those things, here is your 'Get Going' sheet with ideas of things that are always good to work on.

What are we learning in Year 6 this week? W/B 30.11.20

Since our Year 6 Bubble has recently collapsed, we will be continuing our learning online. We will be focusing primarily on Core subjects and meeting daily to consolidate the previous day's learning, as well as to have an opportunity to ask any questions. Meeting online will also give students a chance to have a glimpse at what is ahead in each unit of study.

Maths-We will be revising and learning different strategies for division. We will practise short division, long division, work with remainders, and practise multi-step equations and word problems, as well as reasoning skills.

English-We will continue to focus on David Almond's 'Skellig', but begin to zoom in on different aspects such as implications of the subtext, symbolism, and archetypes. We will continue to read the book together as a class and use our Inference, Retrieval and Vocabulary skills when gathering ideas and discussing themes.

SPaG-Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar work will continue, with a mini assessement at the end of the week.

All students now have the option to submit work using Kami, Teachermade, or Google Docs. During our online lessons this week, we will review the process of submission.

New work in all these areas is posted daily.

Although rare, there is a risk that with increased online activity, feelings of stress and isolation may be exploited. An understanding of digital safety will help parents and carers safeguard loved ones from a range of harms, whether that’s child sexual exploitation, fraud, or extremist influences seeking to radicalise vulnerable people.'

During the lockdown, we have been fortunate to have an online community to stay connected with friends and family. It's easy to forget that we must consider our safety online in all areas.

Mental Health

Looking after your mental health is really important. In year 6, we have recently been trying lots of ways to rest and relax. Here are a few ideas for doing this at home:

-meditate using videos in youtube such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBnPlqQFPKs

-try some mindfulness colouring (some examples are included in your exercise books)

-use your exercise book to start a journal. Writing down your thoughts and feelings can really help you to feel more positive

-do a wordsearch or crossword to help distract yourself
