Class Blog for Year 6

 

The Team: 

 6B - Miss Bishop and Mrs Wilton 
6W - Mrs Callister and Mrs Harris 

Learning in Year Six: 
We absolutely understand that Year Six can seem a little daunting. However, we can promise you we have lots of fun learning activities for your children to get involved in! We are looking forward to starting our first topic of 'Evolution and Inheritance' and are ready to get stuck into our math and English topics! 

PE Kit:
Please send your child in to school in their PE kit every Wednesday and Friday. If it is cold, please feel free to send your child in with additional clothing i.e. hoodies or tracksuit bottoms. 

Home Learning: 
Your child will have two pieces of home learning set each week - 
  • English skills 
  • Maths skills
These pieces of work shouldn't take too long to complete and will help your child consolidate their week's learning at school. Homework will be set on a Friday and will be expected to be brought back in by the following Wednesday. 

Please remember, your child will have a Times Table Rock Stars login that they can access from home, as well as a reading book from our library. Both times tables and reading are brilliant building blocks for learning and SATs, so please encourage your child to access these at home. 

Finally, your child will come home with an optional learning grid full of fun activities based on our current topic. If they wish to do any of these activities, we would love to see the outcome! 

We look forward to letting you know more about Year Six soon and sharing both pictures and learning with you.

RNLI

Introducing the RNLI's newest recruits!

 


Science week fun. 

 



As it has been British Science Week, this week, our amazing Year 6's were kindly invited to join an interactive science session at Wadebridge comprehensive. The sessions were led by their wonderful Year 9 pupils who are all currently taking triple science. They did a fantastic job in inspiring our Year 6's to get involved with science and, through carefully designed activities, they really brought out the inner scientists in each of our pupils.

Our Year 6's had a super time and there were definitely smiles all round. 

As the theme this year was 'Growth', the children looked at the best growing condition for plants, how to build structures (out of spaghetti!) that could with-stand high winds and even completed some code breaking challenges.

Our thanks go out to all involved and we will definitely be back!


 


Home Learning 


Please find below work set for Friday 18th February due to the closure of WPA because of the Red weather warning. 

Attached is: maths, English and spelling work.

Maths: In maths this week, we have been learning all about line graphs and pie charts, and using data to answer questions. The attached worksheet focuses on all these areas and is an end of unit summary. If you are unable to print this sheet, please ask your child to draw out the charts, and write the answers to the questions. 

English: Most of you were very close to finishing your plastic pollution letters for the Prime Minister today but, don't worry if you did not quite get there as we will give you time to finish these off when you return on Tuesday. As this was the end of this particular unit, we have set a short punctuation and grammar activity for today's English lesson. It focuses on those all important sentence structures and will be very useful for your next piece of writing when you return. The lesson is provided by Oak Learning Academy and can be accessed by clicking on the following link.

We have also included a link to another Oak Learning clip which begins looking into the features of a diary. Although the topic they are writing about is different to ours, it’s a great clip to help you begin building ideas of the features you will need to include in your diaries about Anne Frank and Nancy Wake, when you return to school.

Spelling word search - we have attached this week's spelling worksheet for you to complete too. Please be aware though that the answers are attached - so no cheating please!!

In addition to the above, remember to please keep up with reading, Times Table Rockstars and Nessy (if applicable) over half term. But above all, please remain safe, and have a good, restful half term.

The Year 6 Team.
