Please log on to Google Classroom to see the work for today. Remember that you will need to go into designated groups to find the work (Mrs May or Mr Sallis). You will find your English and Maths work under your respective teachers and any other subject work under the Y6 classroom folder.
Mr Sallis and I will be setting daily maths and English tasks and I will set you an additional task based on another area of the curriculum.
Today your subjects will be English, Maths and Geography. Continue to read daily and use additional resources to practise skills of other key areas.
Remember that you can use the stream to ask questions.
Those of you who were absent last week need to accept invites to new groups.
Today, all Y6 children have been given their PE kits to take home, along with additional work booklets and things to use at home during closure. The homework CGP books and test papers should not be used unless instructed to do so. However, those children who have been working with additional 10 minute test books in the morning are welcome to use these at their leisure. Those children who are currently not in school will be able to collect their things from the school playground at 1:30pm tomorrow. More information on home learning to follow.
Here is a summary of the topics that year six are studying this week.
English – This week, we have been focusing on SATs practice papers (reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling).
Maths – Mrs May’s group are continuing our topic of measurement and converting different units of measure while Mr Sallis’s group are continuing with their work on ratio. Children are encouraged to practise reasoning style questions in these areas.
Religious education – Our current topic is Eucharist. See our RE home learning page for the current topic’s key words and homework task. We have been designing stain glass windows with the theme of Unity.
History – El Salvador: Rio Acelhuate. How it changes from season to season.
Science – Our current topic is Light and how we see. This week we have been looking at reflection and refraction.
DT- We have started a new topic of Felt Phone covers. This week children have been designing their own front and back covers.
Before returning to school tomorrow, I wanted to say thank you very much to all Y6 children and parents for your kind gifts and Christmas wishes at the end of term. I hope you all had an enjoyable festive period.
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales
have designated 2020 as ‘The God Who Speaks’: A Year of the Word to
celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope
Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th
anniversary of death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin. Cardinal Vincent Nichols has launched the Year of the Word
across the diocese and further information can be found here: https://rcdow.org.uk/faith/2020-year-of-the-word-the-god-who-speaks/
As part of their RE home learning over the Christmas
holiday, all children across the school are invited to think about the bible
and the stories that are important to them.
Maybe they have stories from the bible that they love to read and talk
about. Share stories from the bible with
your child and talk about what the stories mean to them. When your child is ready, think about what
story they would like to create a poster for to advertise the story to their
friends at school. Your child’s poster
should include a clear title of the story or book from the bible and a
beautiful image from the story. Feel
free to let your child add a description of the story and what it means to them. We are looking forward to making a wonderful
display of the posters and this will be a lovely way for us to start
celebrating The Year of the Word in school.
Please return posters to your class by Wednesday 15th
2020 will be a year of celebrating, living
and sharing God’s word, through a range of events, activities and
resources, available across the Diocese of Westminster. A lovely activity that is particularly
pertinent to the time of year can be found here: https://rcdow.org.uk/faith/the-nativity-at-night
We look forward to seeing the posters that the children create to celebrate God’s Word.
