Due to the children returning to school on Thursday 4th June, there will no longer be any home learning posted on the website. For those who are unable to join us, please use the useful websites tab above to explore suggested websites - these will help you to continue with your learning at home. I know lots of you will also enjoy the 30 Days Wild activities which have also been added above. As always, please feel free to email me and let me know what you have been up to.
Week beginning 22nd June 2020
What a great week it has been! We managed to complete our orienteering that was rained off last week. The children had to find the sign language symbols and work out the sentence. It was great fun and the children all managed to complete the course. This week is National School Sports week so we have linked our lessons to sport. In maths the children colllected data, using tennis skills, to find the mean, mode and median. The children completed a maths investigation to locate the missing Winbledon umpire and in theme we reasearched and wrote factfiles and biographies of a famous sports person. To end the week, the children took part in a range of sports activities on the field, it was great to see 6A and 6B competing against themselves and each other!
Week beginning 15/06/20
This week, Year 6 have been completing lots of activities all on the theme of Disability Awareness. On Monday, 6A and 6B met Dan, a secondary teacher from the North West. Dan explained his disability to the children and the children were able to ask Dan questions about how his ability has effected his life, from childhood to current day. I was really proud of the thoughtful questions that the children asked, the children were so engaged throughout the conversation. Following this, the children learnt the British Sign Language alphabet and used this to challenge their friends to spell out words. In the afternoon we watched the film Wonder, based on the novel by RJ Palacio, which we used during our English lessons. Sadly our sign language orienteering was rained off at the end of the week, however the children will be doing this next week when the sunshine returns! We have also been busy making clay hearts as part of our Science lesson on the circulatory system.
It has been fantastic to have Year 6 back for a full week of learning this week. The children have been busy learning about the Suffragettes, recapping maths skills, completing artwork, learning about the circulartory system in science and trying to 'escape the classroom' during the Escape Room challenge!
