Great Britons - Banksy
Whilst you are not in school have a look online at some of the art the Banksy has produced around the country. What do you think of his work, why do you think he does it randomly and anonymously? What message is he giving in the images? Do you like them? Choose your favourite image and write about it, tell me why you like it, what is it saying to you, do you think he is a good artist and why and anything else you would like to tell me about the image.
Just a quick reminder -
Next week is Whit Week so there will not be any home learning activities for that week.
Monday June 1st is an inset day for teachers to prepare school.
Finally, for those children going to TQEA in September, a transition booklet should be coming through the post in the next few days with important and exciting information about High School. Please look out for it.
w/c Monday 11th May 2020
Hello Year 6! I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.
You might not believe this, but this week would have been Sat's week!!! Mrs Fraser and I both know you would all have given it your best and achieved some fabulous results. I hope that instead you are treasuring some precious time with your families
Below is your work for this week. I have included the answers for the Maths for last week AND this week at the request of some parents and the same with the SPAG quizzes. The reading answers are already included with the questions and text extracts.
Please remember you can email me any time on email@example.com.
ANSWERS FOR W/C 4TH MAY
Good morning Year 6!
It was lovely to talk to so many of you last week and to see so many lovely photos. You certainly have been busy.
The work this week is slightly different - the reading activities are longer so you can do each one over 2 days. Friday is a bank holiday remember, so we have only set 4 days work this week
Don't forget you can also visit BBC Bitesize for lots of interesting and useful ideas for learning at home.
The sun will be shining again this week so get outside for your daily exercise when you can and keep those photos coming!
See you all soon
I hope you are all well and staying safe. I am in school providing childcare tomorrow but am planning to give you all a quick call over the next few days to see how you're getting on. If Mum or Dad get an unknown number on their phone, it might just be me!
Please email me anytime if you need anything or just send me an update/photo of what you have been doing.
Talk to you all soon,
Week commencing 27th April 2020
If you are getting a bit fed up with the daily work try looking at BBC Bitesize on iplayer (or online)as they have work for Year 6 specifically including some super 'stuff' on computer coding, with games and activities which might be a bit different.
Art - Draw a picture of your favourite place or person, maybe it is your bedroom, a holiday you have been on or the local park.
History - Find out as much as you can about VE day. What was it, when did it happen and why was it so important?
Don't forget you can send any of your work to us via email and we can post it on the website if you give us permission.
Welcome to Year 6
If you need to email me, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs Ward x
Welcome back. We hope you didn't eat too many Easter eggs but if you did we hope you enjoyed them.
Attached is the work for this week - 20/4/20:
Writing - If you would like to write a short story of your choice in no more than 500 words. Ensure you include as many of the language and grammar features you have learnt so far. It can be scary or adventure, what ever you like.
Art - Great Britain, Great Britons - this is our next mini mission and we would like you to find a British artist that you like and reproduce your favourite one of their pieces of art. You can also write a biography of your chosen artist.
Hopefully it won't be too long before we are back at school together. In the meantime, keep working and keep safe.
I hope you are all staying at home and staying safe. You should have completed your 10 in 10 booklets today but don't worry if not as the next two weeks are officially our Easter holiday weeks and we will not be uploading any more work for you until Monday 20th April. Enjoy the precious time you have with your families and rest - it's been a very strange few weeks. Check out the website again after the holiday
To start our first term in Year 6 our children have been studying two significant authors - William Shakespeare and Mary Shelley
The books we have chosen are Macbeth and Frankenstein. The children have really enjoyed reading Macbeth and comparing it with the Tempest that they studied in Year 5. We are also investigating the theme of Frankenstein and linking it to our science - Living things including human beings.
