Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

Dear Year 6,

Welcome back to term 6 - our last term together! We hope you had a restful and enjoyable half term week.We are sad that we won't be seeing all of you this term but excited to see some you back on the 8th June. Please continue with home learning and make sure you get to go outside and enjoy the lovely sunny weather too.

This week, we will be looking at newspaper articles in English, converting fractions, decimals and percentages in Maths, having a go at some fun material science challenges from the engineers at Dyson, as well as learning about African art through creating Ndebele African houses. We will also be looking at 'Slums and civil rights' in Geography/Topic. Civil rights are basic rights that every citizen has under the laws of the government. Civil rights for every person means that regardless of gender, skin color, religion, nationality, age, disability, or religion, a person should not be discriminated against.

 

If you would like to send us anything or have a question, please send us an email to Year6@botley.oxon.sch.uk  or use the Teacher Contact at the bottom of the page.

 

From Ms Southouse and Mr Jee

Dear parents and carers,

 

In the event of your child being off school, we have provided a list of useful activities and websites to help them access learning online, outside of the classroom. Please do ensure that they engage in at least one lesson of maths, reading and writing every day.

 

Maths:

My maths – work has been set on this website (see link below). There is plenty to keep the children going on this website for at least 4 weeks. The learning also links to current teaching at school. Please make sure they complete as many activities as possible. Children should already be able to access this website and have login details that they have received.

https://login.mymaths.co.uk

 

English - writing

Pobble 365 – Children can access the website link below - no login required. This is a gorgeous writing resource full of daily ideas to inspire children to write every day. We would like the children to write at least two creative stories a week, by clicking on ‘pick a day’ and choosing a picture for inspiration.

English – Spelling, punctuation and grammar:

 

As you will already be aware, pupils have their homework booklets (SATs busters) at home and pupils should continue to complete these, weekly, as they would normally. In addition, we have attached files for additional spelling, punctuation and grammar practice for pupils to use to keep practicing. These can be found in the 'Sats section' of the website under 'Spelling, punctuation and grammar'.

 

Reading:

Please encourage pupils to continue completing their SATs busters reading booklets. In addition, please ensure that your child spends at least 30 minutes a day reading independently or with an adult if possible.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require login details for anything listed above.

 

Best wishes,

Miss Southouse and Mr Jee
