Year 6

12th June

Hi Y6,

I hope that you're all keeping safe and following safety guidelines.  We're now in the second half of the summer term and the work we are planning for you has a consistent structure.  We are still linking the tasks in with the BBC daily lessons wherever we can so follow the link to these on the 'Online links' section.

This term we are also starting BLOGGING as a safe way to keep in touch with eachother.  Log on to Purple Mash, select the green "Sharing" and then "Shared Blogs" on the top of the menu bar and choose your class blog.  We would like everybody to blog at least once a week so we can see what you've been up to and check you are all OK.  Full instructions for how to blog are here.

Take Care and stay safe,

Miss Fletcher

Let's Talk About Racea helpful video for children to watch, which discusses what racism is. The story 'Let’s Talk about Race' is also read aloud.

The killing of a black man by a white police officer in America has sparked worldwide protests about racism. 

At BSM we say "NO!" to racism. We provide a calm, caring and stimulating environment, where children learn through a wide variety of experiences.  Our children are taught to value and respect the diversity of religions, cultures and customs and to value one another... We are one big family where EVERYONE IS SPECIAL.

Leeds Prevent: Online Safety Information for Parents

'With many of our children currently off school and staying home due to COVID 19 the potential for online exploitation will be at its highest.
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.'

Before heading into Year 7, we may have thoughts and worries about the road ahead. We will be tackling different issues and you will have opportunities to examine your ideas, hesitations and fears, as well as reflect upon your successes, accomplishments and fantastic qualities as you forge ahead into High School.

Important Leavers Information

We have some special tasks to do as we near the end of the school year! Even though we are apart, we will still make it special for everyone. The deadline for all three tasks is July 3rd, and your work can be sent to superheroes@burleystmatthias.co.uk

Please note: All pictures and videos will be displayed on our website, and will be accessible for public viewing.

                                  Task One-Autograph Book Messages                                     

We will be compiling autograph books for each other, and we need everyone's help. Because we are not all together, our strategy will be a bit different than in previous years. Your job, over the next two weeks, will be to type a heartfelt message for every member of class and email to the Superhero School. This way, everyone will get a message in their books from each member of class. It doesn't need to be long; think of what you would write if you were signing someone's autograph book. You can type all the messages in one document (just make sure to specify who the messages are for). You will also have to remember every member of your class, so when you have created 29 messages, you know you have finished (TIP: If you're having trouble remembering every single person, just think of the members of each table group).

                                      Task Two-Video Collaboration

Instead of a Leavers' Performance, we will be doing a video collab! Your task is record a short video of yourself (no longer than two minutes) doing one (or more) of the following:

  • talking about your favourite memory of primary school
  • an achievement that you're proud of
  • a funny video/ joke (could be linked to the Pandemic e.g. how many toilet rolls can you balance on your head?) and the outtakes could be included for extra laughs
  • a lovely message for a Y6 pupil/ member of staff who has helped you in primary school
  • a dance/ song/ an appropriate tiktok video

We will be putting these short videos together to make a Year 6 Compilation.

Leaving Primary School is a huge milestone, and what better way to show your growth and progress than to showcase your baby picture? Your task is to send a picture of yourself as a baby, as well as a picture of yourself now (you can take a selfie). You can take a close up picture of your picture (just make sure it is clear) and send as an attachment in your email to superheroes@burleystmatthas.co.uk

Please ensure you have specified your name in the subject line of your email to superheroes@burleystmatthias.co.uk

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
