Dear Year 6,
I hope you are all staying safe and well and being super helpful around the house with all your extra free time!
I'm so pleased we have good weather again so we can all spend some time outside in the fresh air, which is so important for healthy minds and bodies.
Please remember how very important it is to think about staying safe online when using the internet. We talk about this so much in school, but now more than ever, when you are probably using the internet far more than usual, you should remember everything we have discussed in school. Please only use websites you've been recommended to access and alert a grown-up if there is anything you are uncomfortable or worried about.
Please email me if there is anything you need help or support with, or to show me your efforts with all your home learning. I would be really interested to see how you are all getting along!
I would like you to continue with your daily fitness!
There are so many resources out there for you to keep fit and active even without being able to do our daily mile around our new running track in school.
P.E. with Joe seems very popular- try it out:
They do a P.E. lesson every day at 9a.m. to have a healthy start to the day.
Remember, you can also access Super Movers
I have added some more tasks onto our MyMaths pages for you to complete. There are some questions on position and direction as consolidation for classwork we completed a few weeks ago. There is also a mixed Y6 set of questions, based on all the things we have learnt.
I have been logging into MyMaths regularly and I can all but a couple of you have completed all the tasks on there so well, which is fantastic Y6! Please email me if you can't access your account and I can send across your details or try to help out so you can keep up with everyone else in completing the work.
Instead of the writing activities we would be doing in school, I would like you to write your own adventure/ suspense story based on being in isolation or lock-down. Try to be creative and think about possible scenarios that could happen in your own home to excite the reader! I have read some brilliant examples online with a 'Borrowers' style theme or a Toy Story style narrative, where the toys have secret lives you can discover.
Try to draft your writing and improve it like we would in school. A really good way for you to do this would be to use a computer if you have one for editing.
If you are using a computer, I thought we could set a 500 word limit, a bit like the BBC competition.
Please email me your stories once they are complete and we could share some of the most creative ones on our website to read each others! If you prefer to handwrite it, you could email me a photo of your finished piece.
Remember some basics:
Ambitious vocabulary choices
Varied sentence types and structures
An interesting or creative plot
You also have some more SPAG.com questions to complete in your online account.
I am really looking forward to hearing from you!
I hope some of you managed to put rainbows in your windows!
Mrs Burnham :)
