Good morning Year 6! You have completed another week of learning from home…the last full one for many of you! I am really looking forward to seeing those of you who will be back to school next week – if you are not back to school, then don’t worry as I will still be posting updates online every day and you will have the same work to do as everyone who is back in.
I tried to get Dunham Massey tickets for the weekend (it is one of my favourite places to go), but they were all sold out. I never thought I’d be in an online queue for them!! I hope you have got some nice weekend plans with your family, whatever they might be.
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Maths: calculating time
Continue to spend about 10 minutes working on your times tables on TTRS or hit the button in order to keep your fluency with them up – you don’t want to be going to secondary school without your knowledge of these!
Your main maths task today is to complete the work on calculating time that I have linked below. The lesson is based on football… Football? What’s that?! I hope you enjoy the lesson and that you can improve your skills on calculating time.
For your English task today, complete the reading lesson I have linked below. The lesson includes extracts from The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken and then activities to complete based on these.
Well-being: create an obstacle course
To keep your minds healthy and positive, I will also be providing you with a well-being activity to do daily. For today’s well-being activity, create an obstacle course in your garden and challenge your family members to beat you at completing a lap or two!
Your topic tasks for this week…
Continue to work on the Viking and Anglo Saxon Chilli Challenges from before the two week break for half term. You could also further your learning with the BBC Bitesize links I have posted below the chilli challenge activities for information on Vikings and Anglo Saxons.
I now have a plea for you to help me… I have a lot of my own books in my classroom and always allow my classes to borrow the books during their time in my class. These are books I have bought with my own money or been given as presents during my time as a teacher. They mean a lot to me, but I am always happy to share them with my pupils as I know they enjoy reading the variety of titles I have as much as I do. I know many of you have books of mine at home (some of you I know have quite a few as you were unable to choose which to read!) due to us not expecting this school closure and being unable to get them in before this. Please could you look really hard at home for any books of mine you have? Remember they have a label on the spine of the book with ‘Miss Boden’ written on and my initial inside the front cover. I have so many missing at the moment, including some from sets that would not be the same without all of the books in the series. I am hoping you will all be able to find them though! Please have a look for any you have over the next few days and if you are back in school on Wednesday, please bring them with you. I will have a big box ready for them to be returned to so that I can leave them in there and sort them all out when it is safe to do so. If you are not returning to school but find some books of mine, please contact me through the Cloverlea email address and I can arrange to pick these up. I would really appreciate this as I want my future classes to be able to enjoy my books as much as you have done.
I hope you are all well and that you have a wonderful weekend with your families.
