Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 

2019/20

 

(The children’s last year with us at James Brindley!)

Mrs Haslam and Mrs Devney  welcome you

to our class page...

Home Learning

As you know, from Friday 20th March school will be closed for a while and because of that we will be asking you to continue your learning at home. We understand that this must seem strange, but we have created a timetable to help you structure your day and help you to carry on making progress while you're at home.  It's really easy - just grab the work books that we sent home and make yourselves comfortable. Each day, we will upload a different Maths and English activity for you to complete.  There is also a ‘Pick and Mix’ document of activities based on our current topics for you to choose from in the afternoon sessions. Some of these tasks may take one afternoon, others may take longer.  We hope that you find them fun and enjoyable and we also hope to see you all again soon.

 

Mrs Haslam

Daily Activities

 

I will update this section of the page with daily Maths and English activities that you can complete at home in your work books.

 

 

Friday 22nd May

Good morning year 6,

                                I am going to start by giving you all a ‘virtual’ pat on the back.  You have made it to the end of another half term!  I know at times home learning will have been difficult and there may have been times when it has been hard to get motivated however everything you have achieved over the past 9 weeks has been nothing short of incredible.  This situation has been new and different for us all but I couldn’t be prouder of your dedication to your home learning and the resilience you have shown.  And because you have all worked so hard, I’m going to give you a well-earned break over the half term holiday.  I will not be posting any work next week so you can spend the week relaxing and having fun with your families.  If any of you do however find yourself looking for something to do, I have set some ‘todos’ on Purple Mash so feel free to check them out and have a go at them if you choose to. 

Have a fabulous break year 6.

Take care and stay safe.

Mrs Haslam

Thursday 21st May

Maths

Challenge 1 – 15 minutes on Timestable Rockstars

Challenge 2 – Well done for completing your games (if you’ve got any little bits to finish today, please continue with these).  Today I want you to put the finishing touches to your games.  Write a set of instructions for your game to explain how it works.  Once you have done this, have some fun with your game and ask the people in your house if they’d have a game with you!   Enjoy!

 

English

Challenge 1 It’s spelling test day!  It has been great to see so many of you regularly using Spelling Shed – a special well done to Joe, Maheen and Gabby who have all played over 30 games this week (Gabby played 55 - wow!) Ask someone in your house to give you a spelling test.  Spelling shed will be updated today and here are your new spellings for this week: available, average, awkward, bargain, cruise, category, cemetery, committee, communicate, community

 

Challenge 2 – Write 5 sentences which include this week’s spellings.  Please make sure that you think carefully about your sentences and make sure they are to ‘year 6 expectation.’  Also, if you are unsure what one of the words means, look it up in the dictionary.

Here is an example: 

On average, I get roughly 7 hours sleep every night however this is not the case for everyone as some people get significantly less then this. 

Challenge 3 – Today I want you to act out your advert.  You should have completed your Maths game so it can be included in your advert.  If you are able to video your advert and send it to me on Purple Mash that would be fantastic.  I’d really love to see your finished products (and don’t worry if you haven’t managed to complete everything this week as next week it is half term so you could always continue and get it finished over half term and send it me then!)

Wednesday 20th May

Maths

Challenge 1 – Daily 10 –https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10

Purple tab choose Level 6  

Blue tab choose fractions

Green tab choose ?/3

You may choose whether you want to challenge yourself and choose a time limit or choose ‘manual’ to work through them at your own pace.

 

Challenge 2 – As I said yesterday, today you are going to continue with making your games.  I hope you made a great start with them yesterday and you are enjoying making them.  If you managed to complete your game yesterday, think about how you could add an extra challenge to your game to make different levels of difficulty.  Please do send me pictures of your completed games on Purple Mash.  I’d love to see what you’ve all come up with!

 

 

English

Challenge 1 - 10 minutes practising spellings on spelling shed

Challenge 2 – Today I want you to write a script for your advertisement for your game.  Remember to think about all the features of advertisements we looked at yesterday.  Also, it is likely you will need to include stage directions and so remember you will need to write these in brackets.

e.g

Sarah:  This is the best game ever (playing the game with a big smile on her face)

James:  I can’t believe how it has improved my times table knowledge (counting times table on his fingers)

Tomorrow, I want you to act these out so consider carefully who is available in your house to be part of your advert or it may be that you are the only person in your advert. 

Tuesday 19th May

Maths

Challenge 1 – 15 minutes on Timestables Rockstars

Challenge 2 – I hope you all enjoyed planning your games yesterday.  Today you are going to start making them.  This is going to be your task for today and tomorrow.  Remember, this is a Maths game so make sure it promotes an area of Maths.  Make your games as imaginative as you’d like and have fun with making them. 

 

English

Challenge 1 –10 minutes practising spellings on spelling shed

Challenge 2-  I hope you enjoyed watching and analysing the adverts yesterday.  Today I want you to think about your Maths game.  How could you persuade people to buy your game using an advert?

Today I want you to plan an advertisement.  Think carefully about persuasive features of an advert such as:

  • Slogans
  • Rhetorical questions
  • Imperative verbs
  • Superlatives
  • Appealing language/adjectives
  • Twisting the truth

If you need to, watch this video which explains each of these features.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8thrJwnKft0

 

You can plan your advertisement in any way you like such as: story mapping, brief explanation of each part, spider diagram.  Do it in whatever way you will find it easiest to follow.

Monday 18th May

Good morning year 6 and welcome to another week of home learning.  I'm hoping that, by now, your home learning timetable is fully established and you're getting the most out of the daily tasks and activities that I am setting.  As we approach half term, I have decided that this week we are going to have a bit of fun with our Maths and English tasks (although hopefully you have found the other tasks we have been doing fun!)  Have a look at today's work below to tell you more about what you are going to be doing this week. I hope you have great fun and enjoy completing this weeks tasks! 

Please do send me your work on Purple Mash, I'd really love to see the outcomes from this weeks work!

Take care and stay safe

Mrs Haslam

You may choose whether you want to challenge yourself and choose a time limit or choose ‘manual’ to work through them at your own pace.

 

Challenge 2 – We’re going to have a bit of fun with Maths and English this week as you have all been working so hard over these recent weeks!  This week I want you to create a Maths game!  The aim of the game is to help others improve their Maths skills.  You could pick a particular area of Maths such as timetables, fractions, mental maths, arithmetic, shape etc or your game could include a mixture of different areas of Maths. 

Today I want you to write a project brief of how your game will work.  You need to consider the following questions:

What is the name of your game?

What area of Maths will it help children with?

What age range is your game for?

What will your game look like?

What do you have to do to play your?

How will the winner be decided in your game?

Also consider how you will make your game (think carefully about the resources that you have available in your house).  Or if you’d prefer you could make the game on your computer using Powerpoint or Scratch or any other computer program which you think your game will work well on.    Be creative and good luck

 

English

Challenge 1 - 10 minutes practising spellings on spelling shed

Challenge 2 – Your English work this week is going to link to your work in Maths. This week you are going to create an advertisement for your Maths game.  Today I want you to watch the following advertisements for a range of different games (I do apologise as some of these adverts are quite old).  Watch each of them carefully to help you identify features of an advertisement – remember the main aim of an advert is to persuade you to buy the product.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj2nepYnPGA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dJr2SdyLGk&list=PLuKKJ5FR6_i8v-c-c6EA5OgatbDJutzy5

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rM2upYM6WPw&list=PLNXV9Mb7egjG4zCQYIAHBaqEGlB7Qv7Xr&index=6

 

For each advert I want you to answer these questions:

  1. What features are used to persuade the audience to buy the game?
  2. Would this advert persuade you to buy this game?
  3. Is there anything you would do to make this advert more appealing to the audience?

After you have answered these questions for each advert I want you to say which advert you think is the most persuasive and why.

 

 

Friday 15th May

Good morning year 6, 

                                I hope you've all had a lovely week.  I can't believe Friday is upon us again.  Thank you to all of those children who have contacted me on Purple Mash.  I really love reading your work and seeing your pictures as it gives me a little snap shot into all the hard work you have been putting into your home learning and also a little glimpse into what you have all been getting up to. 

I miss you all lots and I am so incredibly proud of all of you.  Keep going year 6!

Take care and stay safe

Tuesday 12th May

Good morning year 6,

                        I hope your week has started well.  I have set a '2do' for you to complete alongside your Mayan topic work.  This is an optional activity and will be available to complete up until 22/05.  So if you get chance, check it out!

Have a great day!

Challenge 2- Today you are going to write your version of ‘The Magic Box’ by Kit Wright.  When writing your poem, be creative and use your imagination to really bring the things you are putting into the box to life.  Think carefully about your word choices and really describe the items you are putting in and remember don’t go for the most obvious things.  I have attached a document below to help with your ideas.

Please also follow the structure that Kit Wright uses in his poem e.g. ‘I will put in the box’ followed by 3 things you will put in the box. 

This is going to be your first draft today so if it isn’t presented 100% correctly today, don’t worry as we are going to be redrafting tomorrow.

 

Monday 11th May

Good Morning year 6,

                                      I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend.  We were very fortunate with the weather on Friday and Saturday and so I hope you all spent some lovely family time together safely outdoors  (and I also hope you all had your sun cream on!)

Challenge 2 – This week in English we are going to be looking at the poem ‘The Magic Box’ by Kit Wright.  I have attached a copy of this poem below and here is a link to Kit Wright reading his poem https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zkpmhyc please make sure that you read the poem as well as watching it being read in this clip. 

Task 1

I want you to then answer these two questions;

  1. What did you like/dislike about this poem?
  2. What poetic features does the author use? 

Task 2

Tomorrow you are going to write your own version of the magic box.  Today I want you to have a think of what you would put into your magic box. You need 12 things to put in your box.  Be as imaginative as you can and remember they don’t have to necessarily be objects they can be smells, tastes, dreams, thoughts etc.

Also think about what your box will look like and what you will do with your box (like Kit does in the last two verses of his poem)

 

 

 

Thursday 7th May

Good morning year 6,

                                  I hope you are having a lovely week.  Today marks the end of your working week as tomorrow is a bank holiday, therefore I will not be posting English and Maths work tomorrow.  In case you didn't know, tomorrow is a special bank holiday as we commemorate 75 years since VE day (victory in Europe Day).  As an optional activity over the bank holiday weekend, you may wish to research this event and create a short project, Powerpoint, poster, piece of artwork or do some baking - the possibilities are endless to help mark this significant event in British History.   If you do anything fun or exciting to mark this event, please email me and tell me about it on Purple Mash.  I'd love to hear about your weekends.  Speaking of Purple Mash, I have set a VE Day '2do'.  Again, this is optional if you do wish to have a go over the weekend.

 

Have a wonderful long weekend!

Good morning year 6,

                                  I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and you’re all ready and raring for your next week of home learning.  I know at times it may seem difficult to keep motivated but stick with it – you are doing so well.  Remember, during your home learning, it is okay to take a break. So if you need to, go outside or find a quiet place to relax and give your brain a well-earned rest.  Also, make sure that you are always allocating part of your day to doing activities that you enjoy doing. These activities could be: reading, baking, drawing, gaming or playing football - anything that makes you happy. 

          Remember to check out the emailing feature that is available on Purple Mash if you haven’t already done so and please do email me with any problems you may have, any work you’d like to share with me or even if you just want to say hello!  This week I have set you a few ‘to do’ tasks on Purple Mash.  These are optional tasks but have a look and have a go if you get the opportunity to.

Think creatively, how could he have got up there?  Why is he still there?  Is there any possibility he can leave?  Try and think of at least 5 ideas.  Once you have 5 ideas, pick one of them which you are going to write about in more detail tomorrow. Tomorrow you are going to write an explanation of how ‘the man on the moon’ came to live there.  Write a plan to help you with your writing tomorrow.

Good Morning Year 6,

                                        I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and you’re making the most of the beautiful weather we are having at the minute.  If we were currently in school, we would have started a new History topic about the Ancient Mayans.  I have posted a new pick and mix based on this new topic (see above for the attachment).  This is a very interesting period of History and one that I always enjoy teaching.  Now I know that many of you will have very little knowledge of the Mayans (and possibly some of you may not have even heard of them before) therefore it is going to be essential for you to carry out some research before you will be able to complete most of the activities.  At the bottom of the pick and mix grid, I have listed a number of websites which you will find useful to help with your research.  I have also attached a link above to an e-book about the Mayans which you may find useful.  Good luck and I hope you enjoy learning about the Mayans. 

           We also have a new feature to add to your home learning.   Purple Mash!  This is a great website which we are going to be using which contains a variety of activities and also includes a great feature which will allow you to email me.  You can find this under '2email'.  By using this feature, you can send me messages and attach images of your work. I will be able to directly respond to you on there too and send you feedback on the work you are doing. 

  • Use this link: https://www.purplemash.com/sch/james-m28  to log in by using your unique username and password which have been emailed to your parents.
  • Once you have logged on, you will be taken to the home page - here you will be able to see some of the different pages the site has to offer.
  • On the home page, there is  a search bar.  In the search bar, type in '2email' and click on the '2email' picture until you are taken to your own personal email inbox. 
  • You will see any messages you have received here in your inbox. 
  • If you wish to send a message, click on the small envelope with the green plus inside. 
  • You will need to search for the person you wish to send your message to. e.g. Mrs Haslam 
  • You can give your message a subject (so I know what it is about) and then type in your message. 
  • Before sending you can also choose to attach a file (this might be a piece of work you have done) or draw a picture. 

 

Happy Purple Mashing!  I look forward to hearing from you all.

 

          Can I just take this opportunity to also congratulate each and every one of you for all your hard work and dedication to your home learning.  I know at times it must be difficult but keep at it and keep smiling.  You are all wonderful and I’m so proud of you all. 

 

Have a fabulous week!

 

Mrs Haslam

Challenge 2- Today you are going to write the beginning to your story.  You may hand write your story or if you’d prefer to type it on a computer that is fine.

In this part of your story it is important that you set the scene and introduce your characters.  I have attached a model of the beginning of my story based on my modelled plan from yesterday.  I want you to include speech in your story so please think carefully about how to punctuate this.

Remember:

  • New speaker, new line
  • A capital letter when opening speech marks, “Hello,”
  • Punctuation before you close the speech marks.  This could be a . , ! or ?  “Hello!
  • When speech is split with narrative you do not need to use a capital letter when starting the continued speech. (e.g. “I love ice cream,” Sarah explained, “especially chocolate flavoured.”)
  • You should never have closed then opened speech marks straight after each other “Hello.””Hi” x

 

Monday 20th April

Good morning year 6. 

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter break with your families and you haven't eaten too much chocolate!  I know some of you have been busy practising your toilet roll football skills and it was lovely to see the video you put together.  If you completed a project over the Easter break, well done! I hope that I will get chance to see these at some point in the future and remember, if you have not managed to complete it yet, you still can.

Our summer term officially starts today and so I will be starting to post daily Maths and English challenges again.  Remember to also check your pick and mix for any activities you have not yet completed.  

Remember, stay home and stay safe.

I have attached a modelled plan which you can use to help you plan your story or you can use other planning methods which we have previously used such as a story map – it is completely up to you.  Please make sure in your plan the plot of your story is clear and you have a clear beginning, middle and end.

In case you are struggling to come up with an idea for your story, I have included some picture stimulus which you may find helpful and may spark an idea for your story.

Remember, this is your story it can be about whatever you like!
