Year 6 Homework and Spellings for Autumn 2

On Friday Year 6 enjoyed their DT curriculum day.  During the day children were able to design playground equipment, design their dream home, make a WW1 Trench and sew their own poppy cushions.

Year 6 Spelling List

Please log on to Spelling Shed to play the games. Please also choose two of the spelling activities to help with these words.  We will test each Monday.

MACBETH!...

We hope that you enjoy this version of the Scottish play... The children have worked hard to speak in Shakespearian English, and must be applauded for learning their lines and shooting their scenes all in one day! We are sorry that we cannot remove the writing from the screen during the video, but the fabulous acting more than makes up for it. 

(A massive thank you to Mr Godfrey for helping to edit this together...!) 

Please enjoy, 

Our class, Miss White and Mrs Stacey

(This play contains scenes which could be upsetting for very young children). 

SUMMER HOLIDAY IDEAS

SUMMER TERM: SECOND HALF

Hello! We hope that you have enjoyed a sunny half term. All year 6 children can collect a learning pack this half term. If your child is returning to school, they can collect this on their first day. For those children who are continuing their learning at home, you may collect a pack from the school foyer. Please contact Year6@greatbentley.essex.sch.uk if you have any questions about this. All of the learning will be on the website too. There will be extra resources suh as powerpoints on the website, so it is important to check in each week. If you need more work please email. Thank you!

Home learning week beginning 8th June 2020.

HOME LEARNING UPDATE:

Monday 12th July 2020

Check this space weekly for updates on weekly plans for home learning in these unprecedented times. Plans will go onto the website each Monday for 9am. These plans will include lesson activities and a timetable you can follow for learning. We stress that you may choose to work to your own times, you may even choose to explore different ways of learning and (most importantly) ensure that your children's well being takes priority. 

 

If you have any questions about the learning or would like us to email you with some more tasks. Please contact the school office as the class emails are no longer in frequent use due to wider school opening. 

On a separate note we are so proud of our Year 6 children <3 continue to look after each other :)

HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF THE WORK YEAR 6 HAVE BEEN DOING AT HOME. WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO SEND US MORE!

Lewis F has produced a well presented report on Florence Nightingale "The Lady of the Lamp," with effective layout devices. An excellent way to combine writing, history and science!

Ethan has produced some superb writing, which highlights effective use of vocabulary and punctuation in The Mirror. He has also designed and created packaging for his DT product: we think you'll agree that the name and tagline are incredibly creative!

Enjoy the Wonderful World of Randomness- a creative poem by Lewis F, filled with witty rhyme and fantastical imagery! 

Lewis C took on the 100 world challenge- he has built up a suspenseful story with a shocking (but gripping) ending! 

Ruby created a brilliant PowerPoint on jobs in the Victorian era. It is very informative and filled with fascinating facts and the story of Thomas Barnardo, founder and director of homes for poor children (and modern day Barnardo's children charity). 

Some beautifully presented work from Daisy for DT and Science. We love the use of colour and pictures. 

An informative letter from Maisy, who outlines her idea for a new snack bar (the "Flapana") in great detail. Well done! 

Lucas has worked really hard on his descriptive sentences, using a range of vocabulary. We love the design for his snack bar in DT too - "The Meteor Bar!" The slogan is fantastic. 

This is an excellent piece of writing by Isla. The vocabulary has been chosen for its effect and I think you will agree, it is a very emotive piece. 

A lovely recipe for a peanut butter and banana wrap, with a very creative bunny salad decoration! Perfect for Easter.

Some wonderful writing examples, including work on a 'Vampire' rollercoaster and the poem 'Mountain.'

A fantastic recipe for what looks like a mouth-watering white chocolate cheesecake!

Lewis made some delicious cheese scones!

This is a great first entry into our limerick competition. 

Around the World! Facts from individual countries neatly presented with some super drawings of the country flags.

An amazing sketch of an apple - we were very impressed with the shading and attention to detail!

A lot of hard work and effort went into this thoughtful poster which shows appreciation and gratitude for all our key workers. 

A story that builds the suspense and uses a range of interesting vocabulary!

A lovely drawing of still life (a cactus) and a fantastic piece of writing on a rollercoaster theme park: Wonderland! Being greeted with a tea party sounds like a marvellous idea...

The amazing results of a home economics lesson!

The beginning part of an incredible Wolf story (we are loving the vocabulary!)

A fantastic piece of non fiction writing!

Showcasing a fantastic example of proportion and shading!

A superb historical timeline with interesting facts!

 

Our class topic is EXPLORATION.

In the first half term we will be exploring ancient Greece, countries in Europe and beginning to look at North America. In the second half term, we will be exploring South America (looking at the life of the Incans) and parts of Asia. We will finish by exploring important discoveries, such as the functions of the heart and the circulatory system. 

PE DAYS: Our PE days this term are Monday (indoors) and Tuesday (outdoors). Please ensure that you have your PE kit on those days!

 Homework: This will be handed out each week on a Thursday, and must be returned the following Tuesday. 

Please see below for our learning this term. 

If you have any questions about your child's learning, please contact either Miss White or Mrs Stacey.

CLASS NEWS!

Next week is Safer Internet Week... our Year 6s will be proudly taking on the role of "virtual assistants" and running workshops across the whole school on e-safety. Alexa and Siri have nothing on our Year 6s, leading the way for future generations to use the internet responsibly :) 

 

We are looking forward to our class trip to Hairspray at the Colne School. We will have the songs in our heads all half term I am sure...

Maths...

In maths this term, we have been revising measurement and fractions, as well as revising angles on a straight line, around and point and in a triangle. 

We have also looked at analysing statistics, such as line graphs and pie charts. Please look at the video below for tips on how to approach pie charts: 

Design and Technology

We have been making bridges, based on the design of Trajan. We built bridges out of lego, cardboard and straws. We then edited our designs.
