Monday 23rd March
Hi Class Wollaton! It’s Monday morning (23rd) and this is all very strange isn’t it?! Let’s try to keep our brains in gear and stay positive through these difficult times. We know some of you will find it tricky over the next few weeks so hopefully, we can keep you occupied and positive and up to date with things that are happening. Please visit our class web page every day for new Home Learning tasks and other fun things to do and email us if you have any problems or you need to check in with us or share any of the fantastic things you’ve been up to. Your parents have our email addresses on Parent Mail.
Back to today…it would be great if you could complete the following challenges using the ‘twinkl’ link that your parents have received and logged in to. It won’t work if they haven’t already set up an account then you can access the Year 6 learning using this weblink:
Reading- Click on Tuesday’s (yes I know it’s Monday) reading comprehension skills challenge cards and read the first two texts- ‘Sharks’ and ‘Charity Week at School’. Answer the questions to those texts without looking at the answer sheets on the pages below! Obviously, you can mark them yourselves to see how you did when you’re finished.
SPAG- Click on Monday’s UKS2 Fix The Sentence Activity Mat Pack. Complete activity mats 1 and 2 by writing out the correct sentences.
Maths- Click on Monday’s 'Planit Number and Place Value Challenge Cards'. They might open as a ‘zip’ file. Click on the challenge cards and try to complete as many of the 8 challenges as you can. The other file in the ‘zip’ folder is the answer sheet so you can self-mark after.
Science- Play these electricity games
PE- Try out this Joe Wicks 5 minute exercise video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3LPrhI0v-w
Tuesday 24th March
Morning Wollaton, it’s Tuesday and we hope that you’re all safe, happy and well. Did anyone try out the Joe Wicks live PE lesson at 9am yesterday? Exhausting! If not, try it today- you can catch it later on if you didn’t wake up in time! Miss Clark and I are both in school today, so if we don’t respond to your emails as quickly as normal, that’s because we’re both working-we’ll try hard to get back to you ASAP.
Below are today’s tasks:
20 minute write- write the next paragraph in the story to Sea Wall.
Maths - log on to twinkl (using the link from yesterday) and complete 7 of Tuesday’s ‘Maths Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division Challenge Cards’.
Reading- using your twinkl link, read the following texts from Monday: ‘UK Festivals’ and ‘Haunted House’ and answer the comprehension questions.
Click below to see how children are drawing/ painting rainbows for their windows to help others stay positive. I’ve done mine, have you? Read some of the other positive stories on here to help keep you happy.
Have a lovely day and, most importantly, stay safe. Mrs Baker & Miss Clark xx
