Y6

Thank you to the children who could join our Teams lessons over the last few days, it is really nice to have some contact with you and know you are engaging in home learning. I have attached some of the RE work that I was sent, showing your thoughts about a variety of books and their uses. 
Thank you again and keep up the good work. 
Love Mrs Cheap x

R.E. Work - Books

Hi Class 6,

Please find the home learning for Friday below. I will be doing a live lesson at 9am on Monday again. Please try to have the English text for Monday "Be Well" in front of you. I will upload this to the website over the weekend. I will try to share it during the live lesson. However, in case I have technical problems again, it would be great if you could have the text in front of you,

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Love Mrs Hawkins x

See you then, love Mrs Cheap x

Excellent Example of Home Learning

I have posted Katie' Presentation to persuade her audience to visit Go Ape in the Lake District. I'm sure you'll agree that Katie has included all the features of an interesting presentation to persuade. In addition to this, her use of expression; clever IT skills and great acting skills really engage her audience; it definitely makes me want to visit!

Two more great presentations about interesting places to visit in The Lake District, which both include interesting facts; detailed descriptions of activities and quotes to engage the audience and persuade them to visit. Well done Archie and Olivia!

Hi Year 6, 

Today (Wednesday) our Teams lesson will be at 11.15am. 

Have a look on the class page, but you will need some paper in case you want to take a few notes which will help you with the task and also, be thinking about your favourite book, as I hope some of you will share your choices.

Look forward to seeing you. 

Love Mrs Cheap x,

Hi Year 6,

I would like to say a big thank you to the children who attended the live lessons; I was very impressed with your verbal contributions. Thank you to those who have already sent me your Topic work. I have provided feedback to most of you but I am struggling to open some of your Power Points. Therefore, if you do not receive a reply, please be patient- I will keep trying!

Hi Year 6, it was lovely to see some of you on the live lesson on Monday. I was very impressed with your good behaviour and verbal contributions. I hope to see you all on Tuesday's live lesson at 10am. Please try to look at the Class Page before the live lesson so you have the resources you need,

Hi Class 6, 

 

I hope you are all safe and well and have settled into home learning. 

 

Starting this week, Mrs Cheap and I are going to be asking you to send us in two pieces of work each week (we will make it clear on the Home Learning Sheet which pieces we would like you to email to us). If the Home Learning Sheet has AH in the title, please email the work to me. If the Home Learning Sheet has JC in the title, please email the work to Mrs Cheap. This week, I will be asking you to send me your Topic workwhich will be set for Tuesday.

 

In addition to this, we will be continuing with the Live Teams Lessons (see timetable attached below). My first Live Lesson is on Monday at 9.00am. As it is my first Teams lesson of this Lockdown, and I was not in school at the end of last week to prepare, I am going to keep the first Live Lesson quite informal. I will use the lesson to discuss home learning in general; discuss the home learning for Monday and Tuesday and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about home learning or discuss any difficulties you may be experiencing. Please make a note of any questions or problems you have and try to look at the Home Learning Sheet before the Live Lesson.

 

Mrs Cheap and I are missing you all; it will be lovely to have a chance to see you and speak to you on Monday morning,

 

Love Mrs Hawkins x

Good Morning Year 6, 

Today I will do a brief TEAMS meeting at 10.30am,  just to say hello and see how you are getting on with home learning. We may also look at the art I have planned for today so be thinking about a landscape that you like, it could be very near to your home of further away, it may even be in a different country. 

Look out for the TEAMS invite and hope to see you later. 

Love Mrs Cheap

Friday 8th January (AH)

Hi Class 6,

We hope you are all well and have settled into home learning. Some children sent us work today, it is great to see you are working hard. However, please only send us work when we ask for it. We are in school all day teaching some children and spend the evening preparing work for home learning. Therefore, although it is lovely to see your work, it is impossible for us to comment on all the work you complete. Next week, we will start asking you to send us work and will specify which pieces we need to see,

Home Learning 7th January (AH)

Hi Class 6,

 

We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and we would like to wish you and your families a Happy New Year.

 

As I’m sure you are aware, school will no longer be open to all pupils on Wednesday as planned. We are extremely disappointed not to be able to teach you face to face; we were really looking forward to seeing you again after Christmas. However, we are relieved that the majority of you will be able to stay safe at home, while we supervise the children who need to come in to school in a safe, socially distanced way. 

 

In addition to this, as GCSEs have been cancelled, it is possible that SATs will also be cancelled. Some of you may be relieved about this but we would be very disappointed. You have all made excellent progress in Autumn term in all areas and we are delighted with the standard of work you are producing. We are in no doubt that you would achieve fantastic SAT scores. 

 

On the other hand, Year 6 learning is not all about SATs, it is about providing a solid foundation for your learning at high school and in life. A good education dramatically improves your life choices and we are committed to ensuring that your education doesn’t suffer due to lockdown. Therefore, the home learning you complete over the next few weeks is extremely important. All your Year 6 work from now on (at home and at school) will be used as evidence to assess you, so we can inform your high school what level you are working at. Because of this, we will be asking you to send some of the work you complete to us; we will keep a register of the work received and contact parents if we do not receive this work. We will let you know on the class page which work we want you to send us.

 

We know that home learning is not ideal and lockdown is difficult for you all. Although we want you to work hard in the school day, it is very important to take regular breaks, exercise and have fun. Make sure that you get out with your families in the fresh air and spend time each day doing something you love. Also, if you are feeling a bit down, please speak to someone: a friend, an adult or us. We have provided our emails so you can send us work (see below) but also feel free to contact us if you have any worries. Please show your parents this letter, so they are aware of our expectations and know how to contact us.

 

We will miss you but hopefully we won’t be away from school for too long and we can all be together again soon. 

 

Take care, stay safe, 

 

Love Mrs Hawkins and Mrs Cheap x

Parent Topic Sheet

Welcome everyone to Year 6, 

We have now had a good few weeks back in school, settled into new routines and adapted to our bubble extremely well. Thank you to the children for being sensible and adhering to the differences we have had to make. 

Well done to the children who have completed their World War II research homework, it has really helped with our topic learning in class which we are all enjoying.

As you already know, P.E. is on Wednesday and Friday and children need to come in their kit. Planners need to be signed every night to show us that the children have read at home. 

In school we are changing the way we teach spelling, there will be a range of daily spelling activities through the week and homework set on Friday on the class page, due in the following Monday. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask us.

Thank you for your support, 

Mrs Cheap and Mrs Hawkins
