Year Six

Dear parents and pupils of 6H,

 

I hope this message finds you well. I am so sorry that circumstances have dictated us being apart so early in our year together. I have really enjoyed getting to know you all over the past two weeks and we were happily getting into the swing school life once more.

 

I am very proud of how you have adapted to the new routines in school and how you have been respecting each other.

 

In this time of change I need you to once more show your maturity. Be kind and helpful at home, complete the school work I have set below and don't worry; we will all be back together soon.

 

Message me on Purple Mash if you need me.

 

The worksheets labelled with the day of the week are for the pupils with no internet. Feel free to use them if you need an extra challenge!

Check out all the Y6 resources below from lock down if you get bored!

 

Take care, Mr Hogden wink

Please be assured that we do not expect you to be working all day with your child at home! Please use the resources that we post here to help you do what is best for your family. We both have children and are finding it challenging too!

We will keep you updated about our possible return to school on the 1st June... our unions are meeting with the government on Friday, so we may have a clearer picture after that.

Please check Purple Mash for emails from us. We would love to hear back from you! smiley

We have also added links in mathematics and writing to fantastic daily online lessons. Try them out!

In geography we have put a new topic homework sheet full of ideas to help you learn.

Welcome to the Year 6 home learning page. Below you will find recommended work for you to complete. All work will either be revision or an investigation to consolidate knowledge and prior learning. 

Please complete these tasks and try to have fun!

As you may have seen in the news, the Government has announced that SATs (and other exams) have been cancelled this year. At the time of writing, we don't know what assessment we will need to make at the end of Year 6; as a result, we are asking the children to continue with the work in their CGP books, etc.

Year 7 Transitions

 

We are receiving emails from secondary schools about transition. To help the teachers, we always ask the children to fill in the word document attached. This will help us to add more information about friends, especially if they attend different schools), clubs, etc. Please send the form to the school email address: admin@pennycross.plymouth.sch.uk

History

 

Please explore the resources celebrating the 75th anniversary of VE day.

Can you think of any other ways to investigate VE day? Twinkl is full of useful resources.

VE Day 75th Anniversary (8th May) activities from The Royal British Legion.

It is worth looking at this website (https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/remembrance/teaching-remembrance), particularly as one document is too large for me to upload.

 

Mr Pike

Geography

 

Our current topic in geography is an investigation into OS maps.

 

Please choose tasks from the termly homework sheet.

Our next topic in Y6 geography is rivers. Have fun investigating rivers of the world and their characteristics. We would like you to pay special attention to the wonderful rivers that surround our great city. Have fun!

RE

 

With the Christian celebration of Easter fast approaching, please explore...

 

How can artwork express the message behind the salvation story?

Why do churches use stained glass windows to remember Christ’s death and resurrection?

Can you create some stained glass window art? 

What happens in a church service at Easter?

 

To investigate a range of religious art linked to the first Easter.

Who were the artists? What was their message? Does the artwork tell the same story as scripture?

How might artwork need to be changed to link better to scripture?

Create artwork and write a commentary to share your knowledge.

PE

 

Try to keep as active as possible!

 

At school we love Go Noodle! Sign up and have a go at home!

 

Why not set up your own circuit training regime in your house? Get the family involved!

 

Have you been starting the day with Joe Wicks? I especially like fancy dress Fridays!

If you like football and colouring, this is right up your street! If not, give it a go anyway!

Music

 

To teach music we use a fantastic website called Charanga.

Please use the login details that we have sent home to access the lessons.

 

We are looking forward to hearing videos and recordings. Which family can sing the best?!

French

 

Please use BBC Bitesize to keep your French fluent!

Computing

Also press the green share button and open our class blog. Add a book review and comment on a friends post. We will try to regularly approve your posts.

Science

 

The term 4 topic in Y6 is Evolution and Inheritance.

Investigate this topic further and create a presentation, poster or leaflet. This could be about the evolution of one living thing in particular (eg. Finches) or about the topic as a whole.

Why not look at your family and investigate inheritance?

Why not also create a family tree to explain this?

This is the Science topic for Summer Term 5 - living things and their habitats. The resources are from Twinkl and are some of the things we would use in class. Have a go at what you can (some resources are repeated- one star is easier; three stars more challenging) and use the weblinks documents to find clips, etc, to help your learning.

Enjoy!
