Half Term Project

Hello Everyone - instead of giving you activities to do each day, I have decided to give you a fun, creative project to do.

Encounters 2019: School of Rock | What's On | Bristol 24/7

This time, it's music based. I want you to have a go at creating your own song! Think about the lyrics (words), think about the style of music. If you (or someone in your house) play an instrument, have a go at using that to help you. There are loads of free music composing apps, e.g. Music Maker JAM, which allow you to be creative and make your own music. You could try to record your fabulous song, try a virtual gig with your friends on Zoom/Skype or whatever you use. You could then create some promotional posters/artwork for your first UK tour (assuming that hopefully, one day soon we can do fun stuff like that again). You could write a news report, reviewing this amazing new band that you've seen (add in photos and quotes from you fans). If being in a band isn't quite your thing - change into something that appeals to you e.g. writing a story for a musical, designing your own music venue/music festival, theme tune for a TV programme or a film. How brilliant would that be? Make some noise!

Good Morning year 6!

Today is World Bee Day. Here are some ideas and activities to look at later.

Try to get outside at some point today and see how many bees you can count or observe. Remember to take care though! Bees can sting so don't touch- just observe. 

Start the day with a fitness session of your choice- Go Noodle or Joe Wicks? 

Maths- Warm up with TTRockstars then go to BBC Bitesize decimals 

English- Do some research about bees start with this DK site. When you have collected enough information write an information text/non-chronological report about this amazing insect. Or you could design an information leaflet with facts all about bees. Or write a bee inspired poem? 

Design a bee protection/conservation poster or do some bee inspired art work- sketches/model/painting depending on what you can find. Try doing an outdoor bee count/observations or some photography. We would love to see some of it on the school art twitter feed.

Lots of suggestions here- so bee inspired!

Mrs Peatfield

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Science - This lesson from Oak National Academy is all about Darwin's theory of evolution and natural selection. It's good fun; there are some quizzes and a video clip to learn about the subject.

This is a picture of the great man himself:

A.N. Wilson: It's time Charles Darwin was exposed for the fraud he ...

Have a great day,

Mr Bendon

 

Tuesday 28th April 2020

Morning everyone. 

Let's go for a Joe Wicks workout to start with.

Maths - Lesson 2 from White Rose maths which follows on from yesterday's session. Today it's all about angles in regular polygons.

English - Lesson 2 from Oak National Academy. Again, this follows on from yesterday's lesson on newspaper articles.

Computing - As you are presumably spending quite a lot of time online at the moment, it's worth doing a session on e-safety. This link takes you to the thinkuknow website which is suitable for pupils in Key Stage 2. Have a look at it, listen to some of the little clips and try any activities which interest you. This should be a reminder about things we've discussed in school, rather than entirely new content.

Have a good day. Try to get outside for some fresh air if you can.

Good Morning lovely Year Sixes :)

It's hard to believe it is Monday morning again - time to wake up and do some exercise. How about this one today from Olympic heptathlete, Katarina Johnson-Thompson.

Today's back pages: KJT rules the world and Arsenal set goal ...

Maths - Use the link to the White Rose Maths for this week. Today it's all about angles in quadrilaterals. Watch the video to help you and remember to pause it at the right time to give you a chance to work out the answers.

English - I've found some good resources from Oak National Academy which is an organisation set up to help children continue learning while we are not at school. Just before we went into lockdown, we were working on news reports but we didn't get time to finish it properly. Fortunately, the first set of lessons from Oak National Academy is all about newspaper reports. I'd like you to work on these this week - here is the link to lesson 1.

Art - Time to work on your special art project about evolution and inheritance from Mrs Barrett. Have a look on her art page if you need a reminder.

 

Have a good day. More information tomorrow.

Mr Bendon

 

Friday 24th April 2020

Hello year 6! I hope your St Georges Day went well yesterday and you and your audience enjoyed all your efforts!

It's Friday! I can see that Mrs Barrett has been busy setting you some art ideas, (see below today's work) so, if you can't wait to get started on them, then go ahead!

Maths- finish off any remaining work on angles on the White Rose site- the link can be found on Monday's suggestions and there should be an investigation to try! There is always CGP book work to do and some TTRockstars to keep those times tables ticking over!

English- complete any work started on your dragon writing or about St George and the dragon. Again, you have your CGP books to do and Spelling Frame units to work on.

Friday is year 6 PE afternoon so try to do some fitness activities in the afternoon. You know where you can access suitable websites now, or you can do your own routine to some of your favourite music. You could set up a fitness circuit your garden, bedroom or wherever you've got a bit of space. If you have any equipment at home- skipping rope, ball, trampoline- you could use those?

Well done for all your effort and hard work this week- I hope you have enjoyed your learning!

Have a great weekend!

Mrs Peatfield

Tuesday 21st April 2020

Good morning year 6!  Thank you for logging in today. Well done for all your efforts with your home learning.

Start the day with Joe Wicks if you're feeling energetic!

Maths- continue with the angles work from yesterday- lessons 1/2 or move on to lessons 3/4 if you're ready. Use the link from yesterday.

Complete the calculator crunch activity from yesterday or have a go at the next one.

OR

CGP books

English- How did you get on with your St Georges Day ideas? Maybe continue to work on them and be ready to perform your own version on Thursday to a live audience at home or via the internet to a relative? Write a description of your very own dragon and do a picture/some art work based on your ideas. Look here for ideas. Spend some time reading or listening to an audio book- try previous links to David Walliams live readings.

OR

Why not try the new BBC daily sessions instead the link is here

PSHE- Have a mindfulness afternoon. Here are some suggestions...Do something to chill out- maybe some colouring, reading or craft/art idea? Put some music on and make up a dance to perform to someone. Phone a friend or relative for a chat? Offer to help to do something at home. Think up 5 random acts of kindness and try to do one a day this week. 

If the weather is good try to get outside for some fresh air. Make a list of things you can see, hear, touch, smell and taste.

Have a good day everyone! We are thinking about you all!

Mrs Peatfield

Monday 20th April 2020

Good Morning year 6! Welcome back to your daily homework suggestions. Please remember they are only suggestions... If you have some super ideas of your own, or you want to carry on, or follow up on anything we have previously posted, then please do!

You all have your CGP revision books and 10 minute tests books so you can use these at any time or if you want a break from the screen. 'TT Rockstars' and 'Spelling Frame' are always useful- and of course- keep your reading going! You have your reading journals to update and do reviews when you have finished a book.

Art-Today is your official art timetabled day so check out Mrs Barrett's ideas on the school art section of the website.

Thursday is St. Georges Day- so, you could design your own dragon! See if you can find the story and read it for yourself. Maybe re-tell/write it in your own words. Make some props, get dressed up and act out the story for someone at home? Or you could make sock puppets or shadow puppets and stage your own show?

Maths-- have a go at the next calculator crunch activity. The link is here

White Rose Maths lessons for this week are about Angles. The link is here 

There is one for every day this week. Also see if you can find a protractor and draw some different triangles accurately. Make a design from triangles and colour it in.

Don't forget to get some fresh air and exercise- What about a BIG bedroom tidy? Or, offer to do some chores/ make a cuppa for someone at home?

Have a good day!

Mrs Peatfield :)

Easter Project Celebrate Spring with Style: A Hotelier's Guide to Easter ...

We have a lovely idea for you to develop - and it's a complete break from normal lessons!

Have you ever seen the TV programme The Repair Shop? If you have, you will know how interesting it is. If you haven't seen it, click on the link below and choose one of the episodes to watch. If you want to watch one anyway, go ahead - you can say that watching TV is part of your homework! In the programme, you will see talented people fixing and restoring precious objects brought in by members of the public. In each case, there is a wonderful story to go with the object. What we would like you to do is talk to your parents to see if there is something in your house which needs repairing. If there is, work with them to see if you can restore it to how it should work. This might need a bit of research but one of the joys of the internet is that there is always someone out there to give you advice on how to mend things. If there isn't anything to fix, you could try building something from scratch. It could be from material/textiles, it could be from wood or some other material you have around the house. Check with your parents first and always be really careful - do it with adult supervision if you are using tools. It is completely up to you how you record this; it could be a written report, a news item, you could film it and put it together to make your own episode of The Repair Shop. If you are not allowed to fix something, find the most interesting object you can in your house and pretend it is something you've designed and built. If you take this option, we will expect you to do drawings, diagrams and photos to make it more interesting. Work out a fantastic story to go with it and try a bit of drama to act out the characters. Most of all enjoy it - it's supposed to be fun and give you the opportunity to learn a new practical skill if you can. The link to the programme is the photo below. Have a great time, keep safe, eat lots of chocolate and remember to do some exercise to burn it off.

Mr Bendon, Mrs Peatfield, Mrs Hardy and Miss Bentley.

The Repair Shop - Wikipedia

 

Friday 3rd April

Good morning Year 6, hope you're all well this morning.

Maths today - try these activities from White Rose Maths. Have a go at lessons 4 & 5, they link together well and are all about angles.

English - use your CGP books that you took home with you. Choose the next reading comprehension plus one activity from your spelling/grammar/punctuation books. Go for something which will help you - don't choose something you are already brilliant at.

PE - Try Sam Murray's workout. She is a former Olympic pentathlete so is super fit. If you have the time and energy, look back at some of the other exercise routines we've done this week and do one that you enjoyed.

Keep safe and well. We'll be changing things next week. Instead of daily subjects to do - I'll give you a longer term project to keep your mind active over the Easter period.

Mr Bendon

 

Thursday 2nd April

Morning mi-dears. To start the day I've found an exercise routine by Max Whitlock, one of Team GB's Olympic gymnasts. It's a good way to start the day and doesn't need any fancy equipment.

Next I'd like you to go back to the story we started the other day on Pobble 365. You started writing the story about a girl who was on board a fish in the middle of the sea - the fish looked a bit like a submarine! Read through your story, make and changes/improvements/purple pen that you feel it needs. Then carry on with the story until you reach the end. See if you can find someone to share the story with; could be a brother, sister, your parents, or even a friend on Skype etc. In school today we're going to make our stories into little books by folding a sheet of paper. You could try this at home - just like the ones I've made with you in class.

Give yourself a bit of a break - you could ask if anyone in the house needs any help with anything. Then when you're ready, try this maths problem from NRICH.

Later on you could try some French. I've found a fun film clip about two children who want to choose a new pet - their magic French dog, Farley, tries to help them. Watch the film clip, listen carefully to the words and try get the pronunciation as accurate as you can.

 

I hope you are all OK. Keep safe,

 

Mr Bendon

 

Wednesday 1st April

Good morning everyone - read all the instructions before you begin today.

Task one - run up and down the stairs in your house 20 times - this will get blood flowing to your brain to help you think.

Task two - clean all of your mum and dad's shoes and your mucky trainers. They will think you're really helpful!

Task three - try this White Rose Maths activity. Watch the little video first, then try the work on scale factors which follows on from Monday's lesson.

Task four - tidy your room. A little brain break will do you good.

Task five - watch this video clip on the BBC website. Try writing a simple sentence of your own. Then gradually make it more interesting by adding new words, changing the sentence structure or order of the words, whilst making sure it still makes sense. 

Task six - a little bit of exercise!

Task seven - science. Read this article about evolution and watch the film clip. Now draw your own amazing creature which is perfectly suited to a particular habitat. Write down as much information as you can about its life, e.g. what it eats, how it avoids being eaten, how it regulates its own body temperature etc.

Task eight - look at the date. Got you :) Now look at the list again. I'd really like you to do task 3, 5, 6 & 7. Of course if you still want to do them all, you go for it!

 

Remember - keep safe, look after the people around you and be helpful where you can.

 

Mr Bendon

 

Tuesday 31st March

Good morning Year 6. Today you can start with this maths puzzle from NRICH.

Once you have solved that puzzle, look back at the stories you started yesterday. Read it through to remind yourself of what was happening in your story, carry on the story paying particular attention to the use of dialogue between characters. Remember to set out the direct speech correctly and use informal language where appropriate. We will aim to finish the stories later on this week.

Computing - most of the time you will find adults complaining that you spend too much time looking at a screen (true?). However, at the moment, computers are proving to be really useful. Write a top 10 list of the greatest reasons why you need to use a computer/tablet/smartphone to help you at the moment!

Keep safe and carry on.

 

Monday 30th March

 

Year 5, your activities will now be uploaded to the Year 5 homework page.

 

Good morning everyone, I hope we find you all well and happy on this chilly Monday morning.

A different exercise routine today - this time it's Olympic snowboarder Aimee Fuller's stretching and mobility workout.

Maths next - it's always a good day when you've some maths to learn :) Try this on scale factors. Remember that scale factors are linked to ratio; if you're drawing something to a scale factor of 10 - it is 10 times bigger on all dimensions.

English - I've found an interesting page for you on Pobble 365. Use the story starter to begin writing your own story. Think about the language you use to create drama and excitement. We'll be working on this over the next couple of lessons, so really use your imagination to develop an interesting idea.

Art - have a look at Mrs Barrett's art blog for some more fabulous creative ideas. 

Remember - keep safe and be the wonderful, thoughtful people that we know you all are.

Morning everyone! We hope you are all well and enjoying completing the tasks set and getting out in the garden for some sunshine! 

Suggested tasks for today:

Reading - Relax and enjoy a book.

Science/Topic Here are some ideas for some simple science experiments to do at home if you have an adult with you to help a bit. You do not need to do them all! Click here.

(Please see Twinkle message above to access this resource)

If not then try these ideas...

 - Paper aeroplane designs: using folded paper or rockets like year 6 designed in science week. There are lots of ideas online or design and test some of your own ideas.

 - Or: an outdoor bug 'hunt' in the garden-  remember to just name, observe and count- we need to look after these important mini beasts!

 

Good luck and remember you do not have to do it all or in this order!

Take care.

The year 5 and 6 team staff.
