Good morning everyone! Here we go for another week...

So far the feedback I have had from the Hamilton Trust learning packs has been really positive so please can we keep these going again this week - week 10 (Downloaded below).

https://www.hamilton-trust.org.uk/blog/learning-home-packs/

Please remember to complete your Whittingham Show entries and get them to me by Friday this week. 

For your Big Writes this week I would like you to write about the things you miss most during Lockdown. 

Have a good week everyone - Year 6 I CAN'T WAIT to see you next week!!

Take care!

Week Beginning 22nd June

Good Morning everyone! I know some of you are finding the BBC Bitesize activities too easy and you are getting a bit bored of the same activities every day, so I thought it might be nice to try something different this week! 

https://www.hamilton-trust.org.uk/blog/learning-home-packs/

This page is free to access - you just scroll down to find your year group in Maths or English and select week 9. I have also downloaded and saved the packs below.

Remember please that Mrs Athey would like you to complete Sumdog Maths, Grammar and Spelling each day too. 

REMINDER YEAR 6: Please send your favourite memory/goodbye message to me as soon as possible!

Have a good week everyone - let me know your thoughts on the Hamilton learning packs please!

Mrs F Xx

Week Beginning 15th June
 

Good Morning Class Three!

Another week begins...

Remember - you should be completing a MAXIMUM of 1 hour English and 1 hour Maths each day (plus any other areas of learning). You don't need to try to do everything I have set! I have uploaded lots of different activities so you can try different things each day, as doing the same things every day can get boring.

Remember to get on Sumdog (Maths and Spelling and Grammar) each day too - Mrs Athey is giving out coin rewards to people who are on there regularly! 

I have suggested in my youtube video that you may want to write about our new class pets in your Big Write this week. Thank you to everyone who sent writing in last week - it was lovely to read them!

Don't forget to complete your Whittingham Show entries too! They need to be left in the box with the blue lid that is at the school gates please.

I have also added the link to the Summer Reading Challenge to inspire you with some great books that you may not have read before! https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/?goal=0_ef82b5d6fa-634672958b-82213377&mc_cid=634672958b&mc_eid=89f0f82548

Mrs Athey has also sent some great Thrive activities for you to try.

As always, if there is anything you need - just send me an email!

Take care everyone!

Mrs F Xx

Week Beginning 8th June

I hope everyone is well! As we begin another week I would like you to please continue to complete reading, BBC Bitesize Daily activities for Maths, English and one other subject and 5 a day maths each day please.

 

I would also like you to complete at least one Big Write task each week please. (More if you can!) This can be any writing genre you like, but I have added a selection of Writing Prompt ideas below to help inspire you!

 

Please remember that you can submit entries for the Whittingham Show by leaving them in the box at the school gate. I need entries by Friday 3rd July please. These are the categories... (You need to add the category number, along with your name, age and school to the back of each entry please!)

Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a lovely half term and have been making the most of the beautiful sunshine! 

This week I would like you to continue with the 5 a Day Maths, BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons for English, Maths and one other subject and also daily reading. 

Also, please keep an eye on emails this week, as Mr Durie has been in touch about the Whittingham Show, although it isn't going ahead they are still happy for us to submit entries to the children's competitions and prizes will still be given out. I thought you could complete these at home and return them to me in school and I will get them to Mr Durie. Parent emails should be out soon!

As always, please email me if there's anything you need! 

Sending lots of love,

Happy Half Term everyone!

Hope you all have a lovely week off! Thank you to everyone who has sent me their home learning projects - I have loved watching your fab lessons and have learned a lot from you all. If anyone else is struggling to send them to me, I think a lot of you found it easier to WhatsApp them. You should all have my number now but if not you can email me and I will send it to you. 

Enjoy the lovely weather and I will be back in touch next week.

Sending you all lots of love,

Mrs Fletcher :-)

Week Beginning 18th May

Hi Everyone! I hope you are all well! 

Another week in lock down begins... I am really missing you all at school. Please continue to access BBC Bitesize each day and complete the 3 daily tasks, as well as your homework books. I have also uploaded lots of extra work below and there are lots of activities on School360/Sumdog if you need more work to keep you busy!

Remember your 'teach me project' needs to be recorded and sent to me by Friday this week please. If you can email it that would be great, or your parents now have my mobile number so you can Whatsapp me if that is easier. I can't wait to watch your videos and learn lots of new things!

I will be making calls home later in the week but remember you can email me any time. 

Sending love to you all!

Mrs Fletcher Xx

Beginning 11th May

Hi Everyone! I hope you are all well and you enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend! It was lovely to chat with some of you last week, and I am very excited to see your projects - there are some great topic choices! Please continue to work on these and get them recorded and emailed to me by Friday 22nd.

This week please continue with the BBC Bitesize learning activities each day.

If you are looking for some inspiration for Art/DT activities - here is a great 30 day challenge I thought you might like - https://themumeducates.com/30-day-art-dt-challenge-for-kids-activities-free-printable/

I also had a request for some French activities, I would suggest - https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/planit-primary-teaching-resources/planit-primary-teaching-resources-french/planit-primary-teaching-resources-french-year-5 or http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/french/

Week Beginning 4th May

Please continue to access BBC Bitesize every day for English and Maths activities.

For your next home learning project I’d like YOU to become the teacher! You can choose ANYTHING you are interested in – a hobby, a musician/singer, football team, pet… anything!! This is a great chance for me to learn something really interesting about you - so get creative! I’d like you to research the topic in detail and then create a script for your lesson. You can add props, pictures, anything you think would be helpful. You should then practise, practise, practise reading it out loud clearly – get your family to be your audience. When you are happy your lesson is the best it can be, then you should ask someone to record you (on a phone would be easiest) and then email it to me so I can be your pupil and learn something new!

Take your time and make it detailed and interesting – if you could send them to me by Friday 22nd May that would be great!

Hope you have fun! I can’t wait to see your faces - my little teachers in training!

The theme this year is 'Around The World' The templates and launch video can all be found HERE and are also in resources in School360 so you can search 'design competition' and find them.
