Y6 VIRTUAL SCHOOL PAGE

 

As the school will be closed due to the ongoing measures to combat the Coronavirus, Mr Parkin will post daily updates to THIS web page. Each day, there will maths and grammar work posted here for the children to complete in the yellow book they have already brought home. There will be no need to print anything off, unless you so desire to, as all work can be viewed on the website and completed in the book.  The maths and grammar work will consist of revision questions based on all of the work we have covered this year and in preparation for the End of Year Expectations.  Every day we will revise a new topic. There will be an information sheet to explain the concept and what to do (a CHEAT sheet) and then some questions related to the topic. We will then post the answers online for the children to self-assess their own learning. Normal classroom practice would be that any incorrect answers are re-done so that the children can figure out where they went wrong.   

Work will be online by 9:00 (normal start of school) each day. The answers will be posted at this time for the previous day's learning.   In addition to this, children should continue to read on a daily basis (Recommended reading lists can be found on the class page) and should also be learning and rehearsing their spellings. These include the 25 words for this term, the 75 words already covered this year, and any spelling patterns and rules already taught and covered from their weekly spellings which can be located in their little yellow books. A full list of the 100 Year 5/6 words are already on the Y6 class page. 

 No work will be posted during the scheduled Easter break (3rd April - 19th April). All previous content will be available to use for revision during this time. 

 If parents are still at a loss for what their children can do, there are an abundance of maths, grammar and reading materials on educational websites we use in school to resource learning. Accounts can be set up and work viewed / downloaded from Twinkl (see main page on how to access) and www.classroomsecrets.co.uk . They will have resources for all learning across year 6 and these will match up with our daily revision. 

 

Look after each other and make your learning as fun as possible.

EASTER HOLIDAY RESOURCES

Missing your weekly arithmetic tests? Yearning for a reading paper? Desperate to see if you know all of your grammar?

Here are a selection of mini-assessments you can do should you wish. The papers and answers will be published for you to complete and mark yourself. 

Remember, set yourself the correct time limits - Reading 60 mins, arithmetic 30 mins and grammar 45 mins. 

Finally, there will be no maths or grammar during this period. I would strongly suggest you look at the White Rose Hub materials (see link at the bottom of this page). They are producing daily maths lessons so there will be at least two weeks of work you may not have completed. Additionally, Twinkl and Classroom secrets both offer resources for year  6 for reading, maths and grammar.

Ready for a little fun? because Mr P is on the run. But where is he?

Every day at 9:30am, Mr P will post a picture showing you the outline of the country in which he is hiding. All you have to do is work out where he is.

  • name of the country 
  • flag
  • capital city
  • currency
  • language 
  • continent 
  • one other interesting fact

Want to make it competitive? 

The first  FIVE people to email  Mr Parkin the correct information each day will get  10 points! And you know what points make...well...not a lot really in this game but it'll be a little bit of fun to while away those hours. So let's see who can finish top of the leader board each week and enter Mr P's 'Hall of Fame'.

ONGOING LEARNING

Task 2 - Produce an explanation of how and why volcanoes erupt. 

Task 3 - Create a guide to teach everybody in the world everything they would need to know about the topic of volcanoes. 

 

ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR PROJECT, PLEASE EMAIL A PICTURE TO MR PARKIN WITH A FEW FUN FACTS ABOUT YOUR VOLCANO. HE WOULD LOVE TO SEE THEM. 

 

PE 

Tune into Joe Wicks on YouTube every morning at 9:00am for a full thirty-minute workout.  If this is not accessible, make sure you do thirty minutes of physical activity every day. We must stay active and healthy during these challenging times. 

 

PSHE

BBC Newsround is always a great source of age appropriate news and children should watch regularly. You might like to discuss and reflect on what you have watched.

 

Religious Education

As we are approaching Easter, the children should read the Easter Story and reflect upon the real reason as to why Christians celebrate Easter. They could even produce their own comic strip on the Easter Story.
