Year 6 Kingfishers🕊

Week beginning - 6th July 

 

Hi all, 

3 weeks left! Hope you are all okay and keeping safe. 

As always, your work for the week is below. 

Don't forget we are only an email away if you need any help. 

year6@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk

 

Take care, 

Year 6 team smiley

 

Dear all,

Newark Academy have been in contact with us and would like to share some Maths tasks that you can complete online. It is very similar to the online maths programme they use for their homework. It would be a good way to get you used to the type of work you will be doing in the manner in which you will be completing it.

Many other secondary schools use similar programmes so even if you are attending a different secondary school, it is worth you logging on and having a look at it.

Enjoy,

Year 6 team

Week beginning 22nd June

 

Hi everyone, 

We hope you are all okay. 

Thank you to those of you who sent in your questions for Secondary school. 

As always, your work for the week is in the folders below. 

Let us know if there are any problems, remember we would love to see your work so don't forget to email us any of your work  you want to share: year6@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk

 

Have a good week, take care. 

Keep smiling :)

 

 

Week beginning 15th June

 

Hi everyone,

In each of the folders you will find copies of the work we are covering this week.

Where there is more than one sheet, read through them and choose where to start. If there are more than 2 pages, you should aim to complete at least two of them.

Many of them have the answers on the last page so you can check your work when you have finished.

As always, there is no need to print all of these out, you can simply write your answers on any paper.

Keep safe and well everyone,

Year 6 Team.

Secondary Transition

 

In the next few weeks, school will be communicating with the local Secondary schools about what we can do in regards to transition. One thing we have already decided would be useful is for us to pass on to them any questions, queries or worries the children may have about their new school.

Therefore, we would like all children to write down any questions they would like putting forward to the schools and hopefully they will be able to answer them in future communications.

These need to be emailed to the Y6 email address:

Y6@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk

We would like these for the end of the week please so that they can be collated and passed on.

Unfortunately, we are unable to answer (at this point) questions from parents regarding issues such as uniform etc. No doubt, Secondary schools will be contacting parents in the near future.

Week beginning: 8th June

 

Hi Year 6, 

Same as last week, the work is the same for the children at school as it is for at home. 

There are some English, Maths & Reading activities. You do not need to print any of it out, you can simply write the answers down on paper or in a book you have at home. Where there is more than one level of sheet to attempt, start where you feel most comfortable and then move on to the next level of challenge.

Have a good week! 

Keep smiling and stay safe! 

Year 6 team.

Week beginning 1st June

 

Hi everyone,

This week, the work is the same as what the pupils returning to school will be doing.

There is some Maths, Reading and English work as usual.

You do not need to print any of it out, you can simply write the answers down on paper or in a book you have at home. Where there is more than one level of sheet to attempt, start where you feel most comfortable and then move on to the next level of challenge.

Keep smiling and stay safe 

Year 6 team.

Super Scientists

 

This week, we thought we'd give you something different to try.

Attempt some of the Science activities and take photos or upload your results and email them to us.

If you make the fossil, we would love to see it when we get back to school as we will be learning about these during our Darwin topic.

You don't have to do them all - just see which you fancy having a go at.

Enjoy.

Week beginning: 11th May

 

Hi Year 6,

Another week down! Some days I think the time is going by quickly and others I think it is dragging! We hope you managed to celebrate VE day in your own way, we’d love to see some pictures.

This week should have been SATS week and I know from speaking to some parents this week, that actually you are a little bit disappointed to not be doing these this week. As said to you when we first closed, we are also disappointed for you, as you have worked so hard, but just know that, you are all brilliant, you should feel proud of your achievements. You should all also be proud of yourselves during all of this; you are doing a brilliant job of staying at home and doing some work and learning some new things. We’ve heard that a lot of you have been doing some baking, we hope we get to come back to school and try some of these, think we might have some junior bake off entries soon enough!

As always, your week for the work is below. Try to keep yourselves in some routine, you’ve got this! If you are struggling with anything, please email us year6@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk

We miss you! Look after yourselves!

Year 6 Team smiley

Week beginning: 4th May

Hi Year 6,

Gosh another week down! 

We hope you are keeping yourself busy in this odd time. All 3 of us have been keeping busy, especially Mr Good he has been busy gardening! It has been nice for us all to be able to spend extra time at home to be able to get on with jobs that we’ve not done for a while but we are missing you all lots.

We know that this time is hard for you and you will want to see your friends but you are doing a brilliant job of staying home and staying safe. We are proud of you.

Sometimes you might not feel like doing any work but it is so important to try to keep yourself in a routine and continue to do some work. It may be that you decide to work on Maths and English in the morning and then the afternoon can be more a chill time, it is up to you but we cannot stress enough how important it is to continue to do some work.

Our year group email is always open if you have any questions about any of the work you are doing or want to share any of your work with us. Your work for the week beginning 4th May is attached below. 

Take care and stay safe,

Year 6 team smiley

May Maths - one a day!

Week commencing 27th April

Hi Year 6,

Hope you are all okay, we have uploaded your learning for this week below. You have a weeks’ worth of Grammar and Reading activities to complete. For Maths, we would love you to continue using the White Rose Maths; more information is in the folder. None of this work needs printing out, so do not worry about that.

We have also uploaded some Topic work for you to complete, still focusing on WW2.

As well as this, this week we would love you to try something different, see the ‘Try something different’ folder for more information.

Look after yourselves smiley 

Miss Louden, Miss Devlin and Mr Good.

Week commencing: 20th April 

 Hi Year 6, 

We hope you are all okay and you are keeping busy in these unusual times. The last two weeks should have been your Easter holidays so we hope you got up to some different learning, did any of you bake anything to do with Easter? Any Easter themed art? We're sure you all ate lots of chocolate!

 

On Monday 20th April, we should have been welcoming you back ready for Summer 1 but that is not the case and we must admit, it's very odd for us as well! Underneath this is three folders, Maths, English and Topic. These will contain activities for you to have a go at, if you are unsure of anything then please email us at year6@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk.

If you have any work that you want to share with us then please do. We would love to hear from you. 

 

Take care,

Miss Louden, Miss Devlin and Mr Good smiley

English and other activities for week commencing 20th April (not to be completed all in one go)

Easter Activities

Whilst you are taking a break from the 'normal' work we have set, we thought we'd give you some ideas about different creative tasks that you might want to have a go at.

As it is Easter, why not decorate an egg? Be as creative as you like, take a picture of it and then email it to the Year 6 address. We'll add these to our normal class pages.

If the weather stays fine, try creating as picture using nature (twigs, grasses, flower petals etc.). Again, take a pic of these and email them in to share.

You could, if you have the supplies already in, create something yummy and share it via a pic too.

Keep yourselves self and well,

Year 6 Team.

Weekly update 

Hope you are all doing ok and working hard (ha,ha). White Rose have released their week 2 Maths for you to have a go at.

Remember, you do not need to print the activities off, you can simply do any working out and answers on a piece of paper.

I have also added some more activities on SPAG.com

Hope you are getting some fresh air in your gardens too.

Keep an eye out for updates at the end of the week.

Take care everyone,

Year 6 Team

Hi Year 6,

 

We are sure that you have more than enough written work to be completing in your booklets for the rest of this week and next week too.

However, here is a link for you to access some online Maths work as an extra. You may want to do some of this online work instead of the booklets we provided you with and that is fine. Just make a note of the online resources you have accessed and completed.

There are videos to watch to help you understand the new concept and activities to complete afterwards (you can print these out of you wish or you could simply leave them on your screen and complete them on any piece of paper - don't copy the question out). 

Currently, there are 5 lessons on Ratio - each with video and activity. You could do these all in one go if you wish but perhaps doing 1 or 2 each day would be sufficient.

There should be new topics added each week on the same website so keep checking - I'll also add on here when I see them.

The site is White Rose Maths (which is the scheme of learning we follow at school so the resources will look familiar).

Go to the Home Learning section and choose Y6.

Keep safe and well.

Hi all,

Have a look on our year group class pages for other information regarding your home learning and our Year 6 email address for any enquiries you may have.

P.E

Joe Wicks has  recently announced the following:

‘Starting Monday, every single day from Monday to Friday I’m going to do a live workout called PE with Joe on my Youtube Channel, TheBodyCoachTV.  ‘It’s a workout specifically designed for kids because when the schools are closed there is no PE. Don’t worry, I’ve got you – I’m going to take this over.  ‘I’m going to get your kids moving, feeling energised, positive, optimistic. So tune in Monday morning 9am and every day Monday to Friday. 

Challenge

During the time that school is closed, we've attached a selection of random challenges to try and complete. Some of these will be easier than others and some will need you to be extra creative! For each challenge, you can write a quick notes explaining what you did and/or take pictures evidencing that you have completed it. We look forward to seeing how you do!
