Good Morning Year 6!

It's Monday again, so here are your home learning activities for this week. Don't forget to send you writing to the homework email address and check your My Maths for new activities. If you have no new activities, this will be because you still have previously set activities to complete. The weather is set to be great for most of this week so try to get out in the fresh air for some exercise! 

Have a great week!

Good Morning Year 6!

Please find this week's Home Learning Activities below. Please make sure you continue to email your writing to us every week. This week, your writing task is another Talk4Writing unit but we are also giving you another week to submit your creative writing challenge  Lock down Lessons - remember, the best entries will be forwarded to  The Curriculum Continuity Project in Slough to be considered for  publishing an e-book.  Please also check your My Maths for new tasks set by your teacher. If there are no new tasks set for you, this will be because you still have old tasks to complete. 

Have a good week!

If you are stuck for something to do over the half term break, have a go at some of the activities below.

 

Half Term Activities

Our history topic for Summer term is Anglo Saxons. Have a go at designing and making your own Anglo Saxon shield. Here are some examples. Each colour has a special significance. Research what the colours represent in order to help you with your design.

 

The Anglo-Saxons liked to tell each other riddles. Can you work out the answer to this one?

 

I appear on the ground like a blanket and melt in the midday sun. What am I?

 

Can you come up with your own riddles?

 

Do you enjoy writing poetry? Why not enter the Foyle Young Poets of the Year competition? For details follow the link below:

Have an enjoyable and safe half term. We hope all of you who celebrated Eid yesterday had a lovely day. 

 

Good Morning Year 6.

Well done to all of you who have been sending in your persuasive letters. Keep up the good work so that you are prepared for secondary school in September.

April 3rd would have been the last day of the Spring term so we are going to give you a break from home learning packs (they will be back on Monday, 20th April). However, we have put together some ideas of activities that you might enjoy doing in the holiday. They are not homework and we will not mark them, but if you do choose to have a go at them, then we would love you to email us some photos at homework_y6@ryvers.slough.sch.uk 

Have a super Easter and enjoy the better weather that is on its way.

Spring Term in Year 6!

 

Welcome back! We hope you have had a wonderful summer, and are excited about the year ahead! Here is what we will be learning about this term:

 

English:

This term we are covering a range of skills within our English lessons. We will be making links between English and various other areas of the curriculum; such as Topic and PSHE. We will be working on the following units:

  • Poetry
  • Balanced Arguments
  • Time-shift Stories
  • Persuasion
  • SPAG Revision
  • Goodnight Mr Tom and writing linked to World War 2 topic. 

 

 

Maths:

We will be covering a range of areas with the children within our maths lessons this term:

  • Number
  • Calculation
  • Shape and Space
  • Using and Applying
  • Mental Strategies
  • Problem Solving
  • Measurements
  • Data Handling
  • Algebra
  • Statistics

 

The children will complete an Arithmetic test on a weekly basis to consolidate their learning. They will continue to take Cracking Times Tables tests and it is crucial that they have rapid recall of facts to at least 12 x 12 and also of the related division facts e.g. 144 divided by 12

 

Topic: World War Two

We will be learning about the  causes of World War Two, food and rationing, experiences of evacuees,women's roles and propaganda.

 

Science: ' Living Things and Their Habitats

 We will look at  classifying and grouping animals based on their characteristics, learning about helpful and harmful micro-organisms and  planning, implementing and drawing conclusions from investigations about micro-organisms. 

 

Art & DT:

Our focus this term is DT. We will link  this to our work on World War 2. applying pur knowledge of rationing and food available during this period by planning and making savoury dishes from this time.  We will also be researching different types of shelters used and using our knowledge of materials and joining and strengthening techniques, design and build our own shelters.  

 

 

RE

In RE this term the children will be learning about The Holy Trinity in Christianity, how churches help us to understand Christian beliefs and in the secind half of the term, the children will be extending their knowledge of Easter. 

 

Homework 

Each week your child will be given a list of spellings to learn which they will be tested on the following week. They will also receive a piece of English or Topic homework. In addition to this, Maths homework will be set. This may be on paper or on My Maths, our new computer-based maths programme. 

 

Thank you for your continued support.

 

Year 6 Teachers

 

 

 

Important Reminders...

*Homework will be set on a Thursday and is due to be returned Tuesday. 

 

*Children should also bring in their reading books and home-school communication books in with them daily. These will be signed by adults during guided and independent reading activities. 

 

*Our PE lessons take place on a Monday afternoon, alongside computing.

This includes earrings (if your child struggles to remove them, please take them out on PE days if possible.)

 

*As a school, we are trying to ensure that uniform is of the highest standard. As a result, we will be issuing letters should your child be wearing incorrect uniform. If you have any queries, please see your child's class teacher.
