WELCOME TO YEAR 6

Home Learning Week Beginning 13th July

 

Good morning year six, 

   Believe it or not, we are here at the final week of home learning!  Thank you for all your hard work at home!  Below you will find the usual two sections of work, one in school (focused on transition) and another at home.  

   Kind regards, the Year Six team.

Section 1: In-school Learning

 

We are continuing to work on Transition this week.  You will find powerpoints for the remaining sessions of the programme we are following and you can continue to use the workbook from last week. 

Section 2: Home Learning

 

Below you will find the work to be completed at home.  No BBC Bitesize this week, instead we have a simple Literacy task (to be completed over two days) and two classic Maths activities (including your final ever arithmetic!).

Home Learning Week Beginning 6th July

 

Good morning Year Six, 

   The work for this week can all be found below, once again split into two clear sections (in school and home learning). 

   Kind regards, the Year Six Team

Section 1: In School Learning

 

So we are now beginning to focus on transition.  Below you will find the first two sessions of the transition programme we will be using.  Please do not worry if the PowerPoint mentions particular books, it is not necessary to have read them before completing the work and the children in school will not have read them either.  Alongside the PowerPoints for Sessions 1 and 2, there is a booklet of activities to follow and an extra 'awards' sheet we would like you fill in.  

Section 2: Home Learning

 

Please find below the work for the two days of home learning.  There is a video to watch for the Literacy, there is a link in the document and the video will be on the blog.  The Maths learning can be found at the websites below: 

 

Maths Lesson 1: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6tcf82

Maths Lesson 2: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zqsjcmn

 

The sheets for the Maths are below, please complete one sheet of the document one day and then another sheet from the document the second day.  There is no reading comprehension to complete this week, instead please make sure you continue to read your own books and complete the SPAG mystery instead.

Leavers Video Assembly Update

 

 Good afternoon Year Six, 

   As discussed in the Zoom meeting this afternoon, we are making some small changes to the leavers assembly.  Instead of singing the songs, we will instead be creating a video involving miming along to the songs.  Each song has been split into small sections, with each pod having a section they will need to record.  Those of you in school will be filming your sections in school.  Those of you at home, please record your video and send to your teacher, ready to be edited into the overall video.  

   The second task will be for all children to share their favourite memory from their time at Pinhoe.  Again, this will be completed in school for those attending school.  Those remaining at home, please video your memory and send to your teacher.  

   I have put the song lyrics below, this time updated and clearly showing (through some snazzy colour coding) which parts will be filmed by which group of children!

   Kind regards, the Year Six Team

Home Learning Week Beginning 29th June

 

Good morning Year Six, 

   Below is the home learning for this week.  Once again, it has been split into two sections.  The first section is the work to be completed in school, please only complete at home if you are not currently attending school.  If you have not completely finished the Theme Park learning, please feel free to continue with that work as well.  The second section will be the home learning to be completed whilst you are not at school.  It was lovely to see so many of you on the Zoom quiz last week, we will be holding a similar event via Zoom soon, please stay tuned to more information about that!

   Kind regards, the Year Six Team

Reading Resources

Section 1: In-school Learning

 

In school this week, we shall be looking closely at the famous 'I Have A Dream' speech by Martin Luther King.  For starters, please watch the speech below and then complete the Lesson 1 sheet, a deep dive into the meaning and understanding of the speech.  Following that, our main task this week, will be to create our own 'I Have A Dream' speech.  In the Lesson 2 sheet, you will find a short prompt to help you decide on what you want to write a speech about.  This could be absolutely anything.  It could be a global issue, a local issue or even just something about school.  Once you have decided, draft a speech explaining what you dream about and what changes you are hoping for.  We would love to have these speeches actually read out, so when ready, record yourself delivering your 'I Have a Dream' speech.

Home Learning Week Beginning 22nd June

 

Good morning Year Six,

Friday 19th June Home Learning

 

Good morning Year Six,

Good morning Year Six, 

   We hope you have had a lovely weekend and are ready for another excellent week of home learning.  You will notice a few little changes with this weeks learning...Firstly, below you will find the usual links to the Literacy, Maths and Reading for today.  The Literacy, however, has an additional resource for this week.  It is a short video that can be found at the following address: https://www.literacyshed.com/diving-giraffes.html#.  Not only do we have that video to watch, but if you visit the video resource centre on this very website (https://pinhoe.primarysite.media/), you will find a special message from Mrs Ibbeson to support the learning for today.  Maths can be found at the following website as per usual: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmw83j6 and there are extra sheets below.  Thankfully BBC Bitesize provide explanations so you don't need to watch a video of Mr Ware!  It is a particularly challenging area of Maths today so please, please feel free to contact your teachers for any additional support.  

   As it is a Monday, there is also the weekly menu of activities as well as the Tracker for this week.  However, there is also a difference with the Tracker this week.  There is no specific activity to complete this week, instead, all Year Six children are invited to a Year Six Zoom Quiz on Ancient Greece on Thursday 18th June at 1pm.  There will be more details to follow...

January 2020

So far this term, Year 6 have been busy exploring the

CIRCULATORY SYSTEM

They have been fascinated by the inner works of the human heart and how the blood is transported around the body.  Their curiosity has been driven even further by some brilliant experiments.  We began by creating blood using a range of different materials in order to understand what is actually in our blood.  We also dissected pig heart's, looking carefully at the different chambers and the features of the heart.  It was disgusting yet fasinating!!

WW2 Memory Cafe

To end our Autumn Term topic, on Friday 17th January, the children took part in a Memory Cafe. We invited people from the local area to share their knowledge, expertise and personal experiences of the war with the children. In return, Year 6 shared some of the songs and dances from the WW2 era that they have been practising. 

The children enjoyed looking at the artifacts and asked some brilliant questions about their local area during the war. 

We even enjoyed tea and cake with our special guests!

Year 6 India topic! Spring term. 

To launch our new topic this term, we spent the afternoon exploring the Indian culture. We learnt lots of key information that we are going to build on over the term. Did you know the national animal of India is the tiger and the national flower is the lotus? 

We spent the afternoon looking at different Mendhi patterns (a decorative design created on a person's body using a paste made from the henna plant). We used to designs to inspire our own and then used henna to bring them to life. 

We also followed instructions on how to put on a Sari ( a traditional women's garment). It was harder than it looks!

We are really looking forward to all the Art, DT, History and Geography we will be learning around this topic. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Year 6  WW2 'Dig for Victory!'

As part of our World War 2 topic, Year 6 have been learning about the impact the war had on people's lives. We have looked at the important role rationing had in ensuring that food and clothes were distributed fairly. 

We have also been learning about the 'Dig For Victory' campaign that encouraged people to use land wisely by growing as many vegetables as they could. As part of this, we planted our own vegetables in our garden area - we are looking forward to seeing how well our lettuce, red kale and pak choi grow so we can turn them into a delicious WW2 recipe! Watch this space!

 

Year 6  have had a GREAT start to our learning this week! We  launched our  World War Two topic with an ‘Evacuation Day.’ We listened to 'Neville Chamberlain’s Declaration of War Speech' and spent the morning getting ready to be evacuated. We made name placards, jam sandwiches for the long train journey and packed our suitcases with items recommended by the government. We even got to try on a gas mask, bought in by Alisa Adlem, to help us understand how it must have felt having to wear them in school!

During our long train journey, we learnt how to play Beetle Drive, a popular WW2 game for children.

We wrote letters and postcards home to our families telling them all about our evacuation experiences.

Year 6 are really excited about their upcoming WW2 learning this term

Year 6 had the most amazing time at Butlins for our residential. We took part in some brilliant activities where we learnt new skills and had so much fun! What a brilliant way to end our Year at Pinhoe

Year 6, it's time to revise!
