Welcome to Year 6
Mrs Rees - Class Teacher
Ms Evans/ Mrs Matei - Learning Support Assistant
Homework due in
Forest School: 16th Sept, 30th Sept, 14th Oct
Homework given out
PE with coach
Reading Raffle drawn
This is Friday this term. Please ensure your child has the full kit of white t-shirt (or House colour t-shirt) and black shorts, with trainers for all PE sessions. We will be outdoors whenever possible Thursdays. Pupils need to be dressed appropriately (with any warm clothing necessary).
Other Topic information:
We will be focusing on our recovery curriculum the first part of this term. This means a higher concentration of reading opportunities, writing for real purposes and revisiting Year 5 Maths topics to ensure we try and fill gaps before racing ahead too quickly. Therefore topic sessions will be taught as cross curricular, via other core subject.
READING: reading for enjoyment, for accuracy, for speed and for full understanding are all important facets of reading. I encourage every child to read at home as often as possible, including a wide range of material. This can be newspapers, magazines, online fact sheets, researching non-fiction information as well as traditional fiction stories. It would help your child immensely if they were encouraged to read at home regularly.

Home Learning for Week Beginning 29th June and 6th July 2020
This week and next week many Year 6 pupils are in school, and so the home learning provided will be less extensive. The Year 6 pupils in school have home learning packs given out to do at home on the two days they are not in school, but if you require further learning to access, I have given you the Oak Academy and the BBC Bitesize websites for Year 6 learning. Also I have found an art and design website that links to lots of art opportunities for children in KS2 and thought this might be a great different avenue for you to explore, for a change. I have not set any 2do tasks on Purple mash but you are welcome to logon and have a look for any activities you would like to do yourself.
Have a good next two weeks and look out for the Year 6 leavers' arrangements coming out later today....

Home Learning Week Beginning Monday 1st June 2020
Good morning, hope you are all rested after your half term break, and ready to start the last six weeks of your time with us at ST. Oswald's. Remember our topic this term is ME, and as such i have created a choice of written tasks linked to an autobiography I would like you all to write over the next few weeks. The document Y6 autobiography homework is not to be completed in one week, but over time, so that you can write your best pieces to keep for later in life. I will add to them in a couple of weeks, so that you have a range of things to write about.
For maths and reading I have posted the OAk Academy and BBC bitesize websites as they will keep your brain stretched ready for secondary school.
I have also set a few 2do tasks on Purple Mash for you to have go at with writing frames to add to your autobiography. although I have not set any computing tasks or other tasks on there this week, you are welcome to look at the weekly activities section on the right hand side of your home page for further activities to engage with.
I look forward to receiving your autobiography tasks and learning more about your early life.
Stay safe and well, Mrs Rees

Home Learning Week Beginning Monday 18th May 2020
Hi Year 6!
This week I have posted most of our learning onto Purple Mash as you seem to really engage with these tasks. As we have our 'normal' half term holiday at the end of this week, I have set work for this week, but have given you longer to complete it. I have also followed our new topic of ME: meaning any reading and writing opportunities are going towards you writing your own autobiography over the next few weeks, to collate into a book/ folder to keep as you move to secondary. I have been in communication with your secondary schools this week and they want to know all about you, so an autobiography is a great way to introduce yourselves to your new schools! Good luck an don't forget our weekly Zoom meetings to chat and say hello!

Home Learning Week Beginning 27th April 2020
This week, we are entering our 6th week of home schooling, so I thought I would mix things up a bit. I have listed below some very good websites that are producing daily lessons.
1: BBC Bitesize has daily lessons that you can access with on screen questions. The reading session from 24th April includes an extract read by the English rugby player Maro Itoje - for some motivation!
There is also a well-being lesson on starting secondary school, which may help you if you are a bit nervous.
2: Oak National Academy has Maths, English and humanities daily lessons to follow. I have found some lessons difficult to upload, but you may have more success.
3: Twinkl (our school resource subscription) has devised daily planning sheets to click on each link and follow. I have found this to be excellent and easy to use. I think this will be very useful for you this week. (see documents below)
|PURPLE MASH||2Do Tasks this week|
Buster's Blitz ch6 - read chapter and comprehension quiz
Buster's Blitz ch7 - read chapter and comprehension quiz
Buster's Blitz ch6 - character comparison
Buster's Blitz ch7 - book review
|Topic||2investigate - databases and a quiz on alien databases from 2investigate.|
Sum1 wk1 - random spellings from previous term
sum1 wk1 - dictation of spellings
I do not expect you to do ALL of these above or to be working solidly from 9am to 4pm! However, if you can access an English task, a Maths task and a topic/ science/ art/ craft or music task each day, you will keep your brain working and yourself occupied. Try and choose activities that have some handwriting - as well as keyboard skills - and try to be creative at some point in the day too (this could be construction, drawing, cooking, gardening etc).
Good luck and I will catch up with you on dojo during the week...
