Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Hello Year 6!

 

We're finally all going to be back together again - hooray! We've missed you so much over the past couple of months and can't wait to have you back in the classroom.

For the next four weeks, we are going to be doing lots of exciting things such as making pop-up books, learning how to make games and animations using computer programs and also getting outside as much as possible.

Remember, we will be having PE every day for half an hour from now on, so you might want to bring in some trainers to keep in your locker. Other than that, everything else is going to be pretty much back to normal.

Easter "Homework"

 

1.) Easter reading challenge

Can you beat me and Miss Littleford? Try to read as much as you can over the Easter holidays, recording the number of pages you read each day on the chart in the back of your reading journal. At the end of the holidays, add up your total and we'll see who's read the most in the class. Don't forget to add entries in your reading journal for any books that you finish reading.

 

If you weren't in school for the last week, I have uploaded the chart to track the number of pages you read below. There's also a list of books that link to our new topic "Edwardians" in case you're stuck for reading ideas.

 

Remember, books that you read on GetEpic and Reading Eggs count too.

 

Mrs Bain's total number of pages read: 34

Miss Littleford's total number of pages read: 442

2.) Art activities

If you're looking for things to do during the holidays, I've uploaded some ideas for art projects that will keep you busy. This is completely optional but if you do decide to create some art, I'd love to see it when we return to school smiley

3.) Mary Poppins

Everyone should have received a copy of the monologues to learn for your audition but in case you lose your copy, I have linked a copy below. There's also a link to the application form that Miss Littleford made.

Photos from last week
We did some teambuilding last week. The children were given the challenge of using one piece of flipchart paper and cutting it so that the whole class could fit inside. It was great fun!

Homework
Please find links to this week's homework below. I will be returning to printing off the homework and giving the children a physical copy each day, but the links are below in case it gets lost between home and school! Please note that Friday's homework is on Reading Eggs so that I can take the homework books over the weekend and mark their spellings and times table tests.

Useful Websites

The following websites are still really useful for home-learning. All of the login information that you will need is on the information sheet that was sent in your green box.

Spellings
Please find the spellings for this term below. Your child should know which spelling group they're in, but let me know if there are any problems.
