Year 6

 

Welcome to Year 6!

6A- Mrs O’Brien

6B- Miss Sonam

Enjoy viewing and reading about all the exciting learning that takes place in Year 6.

Update: W.C 01.06.20

Hello Year 6,

We hope you are all safe and well! We have had lovely weather this past week and hope that as part of enjoying your half term break, you are all still adhering to the government guidelines. Everybody has done really well with coping with lockdown: we have all stuck together and kept going through this period for what seems like a long time; however, if we keep following the rules set out, we can hope that this will ease up sooner. After speaking to many of you over the phone, we were so impressed with your positive attitude and mind-set- keep it up!

This week, we have listed various tasks for you to do below. We know that some of you are in touch with your friends, so please encourage each other to keep your minds active and complete the tasks we post, throughout the week. Remember: even a little bit each day is enough to stimulate your brain; it is a muscle that needs to be exercised too!
 

Task 1- RE (Pentecost):

On Sunday 31st May, we celebrated The Feast of Pentecost. During our preparation for Confirmation, we studied the bible by examining the differences in accounts of the coming of the Holy Spirit, we looked at the symbolism behind the forms the Holy Spirit took and we learned how the lives of the disciples changed. Throughout our learning, we looked at how the Holy Spirit supports and shapes our lives. We need to keep that trust in the Holy Spirit to continue to guide us in these troubled times, so as to bring out the best in us.

Go to the RE section of the website to find a great variety of activities for you to interact with.

 

Task 2- Global Citizenship- RRSA:

Another week and a new article focus. This week’s focus is on Article 19 – protection from violence, abuse and neglect. Year 6 have learnt a lot on this topic, especially from our visit from Childline where they held a workshop with us discussing the work that they do for children who may need help. You have also looked at online safety as part of our Computing lessons. You can really connect your knowledge together and make links, which you can apply to your work for this subject. There is a plethora of activities that you do including: designing a safety poster, researching how children were treated in the Victorian era, learning about online safety, researching Childline and creating a cartoon or logo about being protected from harm. Be creative and even do your own research into an area of interest to you.

 

You should go onto the Global Citizens tab and click on RRSA. There is a PowerPoint that Miss Harper has uploaded with activities for you to complete. Remember to upload your work so that we can see and then share on our Year 6 page and the RRSA page too!

 

Task 3- English:

Watch the video clip from the link that has been attached below. Your task is to write two contrasting setting descriptions: one of the city; the other of the countryside. Do this from the boy’s perspective.
You could also write this as a story, describing it through the boy’s journey and how he yearns to leave the city and go back to the country.
However you choose to do it, we can’t wait to read it!

 

Task 4- Maths:

Your topic for this week is ‘FDP’ (Fractions, Decimals and Percentages. Click on the link below and then Summer Term – Week 6 (w/c 1st June).
Watch the videos and complete the activities. There are a few lessons in each tab, so ensure you do as much as you can and pace yourselves. Remember to check your answers and work through any corrections.

 

Task 5- Secondary School Transition

We know that for many of you, you may be thinking ahead a little to how it will be in secondary school and that’s good- preparation is a good thing! We understand how important it is to feel like you’re ready and so this activity is to help with that process.

 

We would like for you to complete ‘Session 1’ in the booklet. Use the PowerPoint we have attached to guide you through the session and help your understanding of the tasks at hand. Both the workbook and PowerPoint have been attached below.

 

That’s all for this week! Remember to continue to stay in touch with us over on our blogs on Purple Mash- we really love hearing from you. Make best use of this time and be productive!

 

We miss you all.

 

Keep working hard, stay active and stay well,

Miss Sonam, Mrs O’Brien, Mrs Khan, Ms McCarthy and Miss Poole.

Update: W.C 25.05.20

Hello Year 6,

We want to begin by saying ‘Eid Mubarak’ to all who celebrated Eid Ul-Fitr on Sunday. We hope you had a happy and joyous Eid and stayed safe!

 

Eid Ul-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan and hopefully we can all take something from holy times such as this and The Ascension, to enrich our lives for the better. Think about the lessons learnt (praying more, giving thanks, helping those in need, being kind etc) and the strength taken from these times where we develop our faith. We should aim for these things to stay with us throughout the rest of the year so that we develop good habits. It is important to be reflective and think about what you can learn from events such as these and begin to implement what you can to your day-to-day life.

 

Half- Term:

This week would have been half term (and still is), so there is no work set from us. You should read, rest and play. Make the most of this time- lots of you have still been working hard and should take time out for yourselves.

 

If you want to do some activities, then try the following:

  1.  Purple Mash- complete and outstanding work and update us on our Class Blogs.
  2. Spag.com- there are lots of tests that you can complete- do them! Refresh your knowledge on the basics of the English language.
  3. Read a book- you should all still be reading! Read a little every single day and enjoy what you read- be transported to another world and lose yourself in an alternate reality, or simply educate yourself further!
  4. Go through our web page- complete any activities you haven’t already and upload your work so that we can see.
  5. Pick up a new skill/hobby- be creative and imaginative: what can you learn? How can you upskill yourself? Tell us or show us!
     

Enjoy your week!

 

Have fun, stay safe and take care,

Miss Sonam, Mrs O’Brien, Mrs Khan, Miss McCarthy and Miss Poole.

The Feast of The Ascension

Today we celebrate the ascension of Jesus to Heaven. Forty days after Easter Jesus went up to Heaven to be with his Father- his time of suffering on Earth was at an end. But he continues to watch over us and knows our suffering – he will continue to guide us.

 

Go to the RE page to take part in activities. 

Update: W.C 19.05.20

Hello Everyone,

We all hope you are still well and keeping to the government guidelines to safeguard your health. One way to keep in touch with Miss Sonam and I is to write comments on our shared blogs in Purple Mash. Log in, then click on the sharing tab – then shared blog tab. We really look forward to hearing from you.

 

Remember to keep a good routine, plan when you all work and exercise. Keep your body and brain active.

 

Thank you so much to all the children who have been sharing their work on our Y6 page, we really love seeing and reading what you are doing. Can you please remember to put your name on the work so everyone knows who has completed it.

So, what can you find out?

You can produce a poster/PPT/Fact File/book- whatever media you like.

 

Task 3- Art:

This area of the USA has its ancestry with Native American Indians who produced beautiful tribal art. This week we are concentrating on pattern.

Extra Challenge: create your own pattern based on this style.

 

Task 4- Global Citizenship (RRSA):

Global Goals Focus this week is Article 28: the right to an education. Activities include drawing your ideal teacher, creating a dream lesson timetable and creating a recipe for a rights respecting school. There is also a link to a free online book, 'The Book of Hopes: Words and Pictures to Comfort, Inspire and Entertain Children in Lockdown'. This is a collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures and has contributions from more than 110 children's writers and illustrations. It is a fantastic free resource, I particularly liked the 'Say Something Nice' poem!

Click on this for the link! 

 

Task 5- #ThankYouNHS:

NHS staff have been at the front of this challenge, risking their lives. So we wanted to show our appreciation by taking part in this competition. All the info can be found in previous blogs.

 

Task 6– Science:

Mrs O’Brien, Miss Sonam, Ms McCarthy, Mrs Khan, Miss Poole.

Update: W.C 11.05.20

Good morning Year 6,

I hope you are all well and are being as productive as possible. It’s really important that at a time where you are at home, you ensure that you have a structure and a routine for your day. If I were you, I would try and copy the timetable for a regular day at school. Mrs O’Brien and I created small to-do lists for ourselves last week and we are motivating each other to be productive! How are you helping others (friends and family) to do the same? Do it this week! In our blog post last week, we spoke about encouraging your friends to upload work- make sure you still do this. Myrah- that biryani recipe was amazing- I followed it! wink

 

When you come back to school, we want to hear about how you made best use of this time- these are some of the things we have been doing:

Miss Sonam- exercising, reading and brushing up on some French.
Mrs O’Brien- gardening, reading and tidying.
Mrs Khan-
gardening, adventurous cooking and upcycling old tables.
Miss McCarthy- cleaning, cooking and walking her dog (Bobbie)
Miss Poole- decorating her flat and walking/running.
 

Task 1- RE Activities:

We are in week 3 of Ramadan- I can’t believe it! I know some of you have been fasting, or have been keeping half-fasts and really well done for your efforts! It’s really hard, even for adults at times. Remember, Ramadan isn’t just about fasting, it’s about other things too and is a time of reflection, like Lent. You should be nice in your actions and words, help your parents and siblings and pray when you’re able to.

  1. Click on this link (https://www.theramadankareem.com/ramadan-questions-answers-english-quiz/) and attempt this quiz. You can do this with your family or on your own. Use this time to grow deeper in your knowledge and have those ‘I wonder…’ moments with your family.
  2. As this month is dedicated to Mary, we want you to complete the activities available on the RE website. Well done to Sadeen, Zaina, Anisha and Pardeep for uploading their activities on Mary. Try something different if you have already completed an activity: a poem, a piece of art or a word collage, are just a few ideas!
     

Task 2- Global Citizenship- RRSA

A new week means a new article focus. This week’s focus is on Article 14 - the right to freedom of thought, belief and religion. This article links really well to RE, especially as this month is special in some faiths Perhaps you could investigate which faiths these are and why; draw religious symbols and show your artistic skills; discuss why having your own thoughts and beliefs are important and why having the ability to express them is important. Are there any individuals who have done this? Was it easy or hard for them? Investigate and showcase your work in whatever way you want- be creative!

You should go onto the Global Citizens tab and click on RRSA. There is a PowerPoint that Miss Harper has uploaded with activities for you to complete. We would love to see the work you complete from this. If you go onto this section of our website, you’ll see that much of your work has already been uploaded as brilliant examples for everyone else- well done!
 

Task 3- English:

Attached is a word document with two English-based activities for you to complete. We are so proud of some of the work you’ve uploaded: Angel’s ‘The Sunflower’ was superb! Take inspiration from one another. We can’t wait to read your versions of ‘Finish the Story…’.
 

Task 4- Maths:

Your topic for this week is ‘Angles’. Click on the link below and then

Summer Term – Week 1 (w/c 20 April) and
Summer Term – Week 2 (w/c 27th April)

Watch the videos and complete the activities. There are a few lessons in each tab, so ensure you do as much as you can and pace yourselves. Remember to check your answers and work through any corrections.

 

Task 5- Science:

If you go onto the Science page on our school website, Mrs Kermalli has uploaded a really cool and fun activity for you to try: Balloon Car Racing! Give it a go and upload your photos so that we can see what you’ve been up to!

 

Task 6- #ThankYouNHS Competition:

We are in Week 2 of our competition to design a ‘thank you’ to the NHS. Well done to those of you who completed the tasks from last week- if you haven’t done so, scroll down to complete that first and then do this week’s task. Send in your work and remember you could be the winner of £50 in Amazon vouchers!

 

Task 7- BBC Bitesize & Other Activities:

  1. The BBC Bitesize online lessons are still available on their website. Have a go at doing these!
  2. Both classes have their work on Purple Mash updated daily with new activities in English, Maths and Theme. Make sure you doing these on the days these are set so that you can pace yourselves.
  3. Duolingo- download the app and brush up on some French, or another language if you fancy.
  4. Reading- the new book I am reading: The Star Outside My Window by Onjali Q. Rauf. I am really enjoying it so far (I’m on Chapter 3)- the setting is a foster home which makes it a really interesting read as I haven’t encountered a setting like this in a while! 
     

Remember: there are lots of things for you to complete. You have all of the activities above and I know a few of you have been going above and beyond- some of you have been cooking up a storm in the kitchen! Keep in touch with us on our blogs on Purple Mash- we love hearing from you! 

 

The Year 6 teachers are so proud of you all; we know you’re working so hard. Hopefully it won’t be long until we are all reunited.

 

Keep working hard, stay active and stay well,

Miss Sonam, Mrs O’Brien, Mrs Khan, Ms McCarthy and Miss Poole.

 

Update: 08.05.20

  On May 8th 1945, Victory in Europe was declared. It meant an end to nearly six years of a war that had cost the lives of millions; had destroyed homes, families, and cities; and had brought huge suffering to the populations of entire countries.

  As we are currently waging our own war on Covid- 19 – we can have a small understanding of the act of selflessness and bravery that must have taken place. The kindness and community spirit, the restriction of activities and the frustration and worry that are caused. But like WW2 – there will be an end. Then we too can celebrate.

Read through the PowerPoint attached to find out more about the end of the war. On the last 2 slides, there are activities for you to try. Please post what you do in our shared folder using the link at the top of the page.

  We need to remember how we feel now – it will make us more determined to never have war again.

Update: W.C 04.05.20

Hello Year 6,

We want to start this week by saying how proud we are of you children. We can tell, through the work you are sharing with us, that you are working really hard and still being the creative bunch we know. All of the Year 6 staff are so proud of you all. Please contact your friends and encourage them to upload work to our shared space so we can see what you are doing. We have particularly loved the recipes, Angelpreet – we will be trying those!

Well done to the following children for uploading work:

6A- Myrah, Blessing and Ibrahim. 

6B- Sadeen, Zaina, Aliya, Anisha, Angel and Pardeep.

This week we want to harness those creative skills and are asking you to concentrate on 3 activities. However, we want as many people as possible to do them, so spread the word!

 

Task 1- RE:

May is the month dedicated to Our Lady. 

We often think of Mary as a mother – a caring, guiding figure, who surrounds us in love and protects us. During these confusing and uncertain times, it is important that we look to Mary for support. We would like you to be creative and produce a piece of work showing our devotion to Mary. Look at the RE webpage for inspiration: a prayer, a poem, or a piece of 3D art are just a few suggestions for what you could do!

 

Task 2- Global Citizenship- RRSA:

These 2 activities are linked. The article focus this week is Article 7- the right to a name and an identity. If you go to Global Citizen and then the RRSA tab, there are lots of lovely activities you can do.

Now, you know we always like a link –we are taking part in the NHS competition that we put up last week. The first activities in this unit are also about finding out about you.

So we would like you to complete the sheets that we’ve attached below and some of the Article 7 activities. Send us your work!

 

Task 3- #ThankYouNHS Competition:

The work the NHS are doing is amazing – they are putting themselves in danger to save us, therefore we want to show our thanks and appreciation. Please take part in this competition. Send us your entries- you might win!!

Other Activities:

There is always plenty to do: Purple Mash, spag,com, Times Table Rockstars and not forgetting BBC Bitesize’s daily lessons. This is what was available on Friday:

 

The Oak National Academy – have created a series of lessons for all primary year groups – it’s free to access so have a look! You could learn some Spanish here too.

We miss you all!

Stay safe, active and positive,

Mrs O'Brien, Miss Sonam, Mrs Khan, Ms McCarthy and Miss Poole.

Update: W.C 27.04.20

Hello Year 6,

We want to begin by saying Ramadan Mubarak  to the children and families who are taking part in this very special and holy time! The month of Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar and is a very similar time to Lent. You will have remembered during our R.E lessons, when discussing what an important and special time Lent is, we likened it to Ramadan. Those who observe these special periods of time do the same things: pray, fast and give alms. During this period, where there have been lots of changes to our everyday lives, we should pray to God for support- not only for ourselves, but for those around us; fast- not only from items of foods, but with our actions to; give alms- remember our charity focus: The Great Shepherd Appeal for Father Hudson’s Care. There are many things you can do aside from abstaining from food. On the RE section of our school website, Miss Caroll and Mrs Gillam have uploaded activities for you to complete- take a look and see what you can do. We would love to see your work- lots of your brilliant work has already been shared on other pages of our website: Global Citizens, RE and English- take a look!

 

Task 1- Ramadan Activities:

Your first task is to complete the activities below. You can pick the activities you’d like to do! I have also attached some ideas and resources to help you.

Can you:

  • create a daily prayer book to encourage yourself to pray- make sure you’re praying for different things and different people.
  • Are there any special recipes that your family likes to cook for iftar (when you break your fast)? Write a set of instructions to teach somebody else.
  • Create a 30-day kindness grid: write down an act of kindness you could do and tick them off as you go along.
  • What is Ramadan? Write an explanation or a poster explaining what this special time is for Muslims.
  • Make a card for your neighbour or for a friend.
  • Write down questions you have about this period and see if you can find the answers- e.g. why do Muslims have to fast? Why are they not allowed any water? What happens if you fall ill? What happens if you miss a fast?
     

Task 2- English:

Attached is the same booklet from last week. Well done to those of you who submitted your ‘A Magical Door’ poem- they were fabulous! Do activities 6-10 this week- we particularly look forward to reading Activity 8: Through the Eyes of the Character. laugh
 

Task 3- Maths:

Your topic for this week: Scale Factors. Click on the link below and then Week 2. Watch the videos and complete the activities. Remember to check your answers and work through any corrections.
 

Task 4 and 5- English (Mixed Activity) and Reading:

Click on the document below and you will see that on the first page there is a mixture of activities based on an image. See what you can do! There is also a comprehension activity for you to do.
 

Task 6- Global Citizenship- RRSA

Just like last week, we have a new article focus- this week’s is Article 12: Respecting Children’s Views. You should go onto the Global Citizens tab and click on RRSA. There is a PowerPoint that Miss Harper has uploaded with activities for you to complete. We are thinking about how your voices are heard. We would love to see the work you complete from this, especially your research on young people who made sure their voices were heard, like Malala Yousafzai and Greta Thunberg. Who else can you find?

 

Task 7- #ThankYouNHS Competition:

Your task is to design a ‘thank you’ to our inspirational NHS staff. Now more than ever, this competition has a truly special meaning. Last week, you shared the rainbows you created, and this week there is a chance to say ‘thank you’ and also enter an exciting competition where you can win £50 in Amazon vouchers. View the PowerPoint that has been attached below, create your entry and submit it using the link above. Good luck- we can’t wait to see your entries.

 

Task 8- BBC Bitesize

The online lessons available on the website are a really good way to keep your mind active with structured activities that you can follow. Well done to Pardeep for sending in his work from the lesson he took part in! The timetable is below for you to view in last week’s message.

 

There are lots of things for you to do and to keep you busy this week! In addition to these activities, you can do some crafts- Sadeen made some beautiful bracelets which you can see in the slideshow above. Remember to also continue reading a book- I am currently reading The Land of Roar by Jenny McLachlan. What are you reading? Keep in touch with us on our blogs on Purple Mash- we love hearing from you! smiley
 

The Year 6 teachers want to say a huge thank you and a big well done to the following children for uploading work onto the school website:

6A- Blessing and Myrah
6B- Sadeen, Zaina, Angel, Pardeep, Aliya and Mariya.

Let’s see some more children showing us what they’ve been getting up to this week!
 

We miss you all!

Keep working hard, stay active and stay well,

Miss Sonam, Mrs O’Brien, Mrs Khan, Ms McCarthy and Miss Poole.

Update: W.C 20.04.20

Hello Year 6,

We all hope you had a lovely Easter break - during this time we reflect on the fact that Jesus rose again, as promised in the bible, he proved to his followers that he would keep his word and that he would always be there to support them. During these difficult times, we must remember the faith God put in us to support each other and remember that he will continue to guide us and that it is important that we think of the courage and suffering of others.

 

With that in mind –

Task 1- Showing Our Support:

Your first task this week is to create a rainbow for the NHS to put in your window- take a picture and upload the picture into our shared work site.

Well done to the children who have already loaded work into the shared area. We love seeing what you are doing and Zaina - a great argument!!

 

Task 2- English:

Attached is a booklet with 10 different activities in it. There are lovely things to do - we particularly look forward to reading the poems about what you see when you open the door! Do activities 1-5 this week and 6-10 next week. 

 

Task 3- Maths:

Your topic for this week is ‘Ratios’. Please complete the 5 lessons in the booklet that has been attached below. laugh

 

Task 4- Global Citizens -RRSA:

Go to the Global Citizens tab on our website and click on RRSA. Miss Harper has put information and activities from Unicef on there. Each week they are focusing on a different article - this week’s is Article 24: Health Care. This links in nicely with Task 1 - so get busy showing your support for the NHS - create extravagant rainbows- take photos and save them to our shared work area!

 

Task 5- Science:

Our Science topic this term is - Animals including Humans

We should cover: 

  • identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood
  • recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function
  • describe the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans.

Your task is to research objective 1. Can you create a labelled diagram and the name blood vessels?

 

Task 6- BBC Bitesize Online Lessons:

From Monday, there will be a series of online lessons - see the timetable.

That is it for this week, but if you want to do more:

  1. Look at RE web page for more activities.
  2. We are still adding activities to Purple Mash and Times Table RockStars.
  3. Our Topic this term is ‘The Wild West’ - looking at the history and geography of Western USA - The Grand Canyon in particular. What can you find out? surprise

We miss you and can't wait to see you all,.
Mrs O'Brien, Miss Sonam, Miss Poole, Ms McCarthy and Mrs Khan

09.04.20- Holy Week and Easter

09.04.20- Holy Week and Easter 1

Hello Year 6,

I am sure many of you know that we are now in Holy Week, a sacred time where we remember Jesus’ death and prepare for Easter (the resurrection of Christ). Although the Lenten season of sacrifice and self-denial is coming to an end, we still want you all to think about our charity focus for The Good Shepherd Appeal for Father Hudson’s Care. At a time like this, where everybody is working so hard to come together, we still remember the most vulnerable in our society and keep them in our prayers. Remember, you can visit the R.E section of our school website to view the updated version of our ‘Wednesday Word’, as well as many other activities that our teachers have posted. For now, have a go at doing the following over the week and have fun doing it too!

  1. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/easter/holyweek.aspx - remind yourself about the events over the week.
  2. Check your understanding: summarise the events; teach somebody in your family (be a teacher); draw a comic strip with the key points or create a mini-book with a page dedicated to each day!
  3. Write letters, postcards or prayers to the people supported by Father Hudson’s Care or Fatima House (refugees, the homeless and the elderly, to name a few). Tell them they’re in your prayers and share a message- they’ll be touched to know that you’re thinking of them!
  4. Have some fun with some creative activities. View the file below and have a go!

We can’t wait to see all the wonderful work you’re doing.

Keep safe, healthy and positive.

Miss Sonam and Mrs O’Brien.
