Year 6 Otters 🦦

Hi Year 6, 

 

On this page, you should find plenty of Maths, English and Topic activities to keep you busy. We will update this page regularly. Your booklets should keep you busy enough but below are some folders with some work for English, Maths and Topic for Week 2, only use these if you have run out of things to do in your books or fancy a bit of a change.


Whilst it is important to keep learning, I want you to make sure you give yourselves time to switch off and relax, enjoy spending time with your families and make the most of the simple things in life ... baking, jigsaws, playing board games, sharing stories, climbing trees and going for nice walks in the fresh air! These things are important too!

 

If you have any questions or want to share any of your home learning with us, please email us on:

year6@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk

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.

Daily reading – you must make sure you continue to read daily. This is a great opportunity to read some good books!

Suggested tasks:

  • Summarise events from the chapter that your child has read, they could bullet point what happened, create a comic strip or present the information in their own creative way.
  • Vocabulary – encourage your children to note down any unfamiliar words, explore the meanings of these words by using a dictionary or reading around the sentence.
  • Predict what happens next
  • Write a book review, to share when we come back to school.

 

CGP books – if you ordered these, then please use these, they have lots of tips and activities to do.

If you don’t have the CGP books, the link below is for past SAT papers, download these and have a go at either the whole thing or just a few questions to keep your brain going! If you can’t print the papers, it isn’t the end of the world as you can just write the answers down.

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!

PSHE

Each day he’ll be giving children positive, fun messages about what he’s doing to stay happy and healthy while he’s off school, separated from his friends. He’ll invite the children to join in with activities he’s doing.

 

He’ll be giving children ideas for how he – and they – can get a routine going for their day, including the things we all need to do to live a balanced, healthy life. These include:

 

·Taking regular exercise

·Being creative

·Helping others

·Connecting with others – in ways that are safe

·Mindfulness – learning to enjoy the moment, here and now.
