Ariel (Year 6)
Mrs Hills, Mrs Redshaw, Mrs Bullivant and Mrs Bennett
Hello! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break and we wish you all a Happy New Year! Unfortunately, we find ourselves in a similar position to last year where we can no longer be learning together in the classroom. However, do not worry, we are going to continue our learning remotely to help us grow and prepare for secondary school. This week, your work is going to be here, on the website. This weeks learning is revision of previously taught skills and we have an interesting one off project for our topic learning.
From next week, your learning will be updated and provided daily on Microsoft Teams and One Note, luckily we have been using this in lessons so you are all familiar and are all practically experts! Each morning, you will get a message explaining where your work is and a general summery of what it is about.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday you will get daily Literacy, Maths and Topic work. Wednesday will be a little bit different with a project which you will receive which you are to work on independently. This is because on a Wednesday you will be receiving a video call with some of your friends and staff in year 6. This is so we can all keep in touch with each other and share any worries or excitement we are feeling. You will be told what time your call is.
We cannot wait to be back in the classroom and we all look forward to our chat on Wednesday. Until then keep safe, keep smiling and work hard :).
Week Beginning Wed 6th January, 2021
We need to keep on top of our amazing reading skills! Make sure you complete Reading Plus 3 times a week and do one comprehension a day from below!
Alongside being amazing readers, we must also keep going with our spelling so we can include some high level vocabulary in our writing. Work your way through the spelling activities below for the rest of this week 🙂
Write a poem about the rainforest. Make sure you use lots of imagery and figurative language.
For maths, we would like you to revise fractions- we know how much you love them ;). We need to make sure we keep practicing so we are all prepared for secondary school. Watch the videos on the following link if you need a reminder: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zhdwxnb
As a good contrast to our topic for next week, we are going to focus on the Rainforest for this week.
Using the internet, label where the rainforests are on the world map. You also need to name the continents and lines.
Read the information provided and label the different layers of the rainforest. Make sure you annotate with the different animals and plant life.
Using the information you have learnt from the past couple of days and the internet, create a fact file for an animal which lives in the rainforest.
