Year 6

Hi Year 6!

I'm sure you're missing school just as much as I am. I hope that you are all well and are keeping yourselves occupied with some of the learning links I shared with you before we finished school. That timetable and the links can be found on the NEWS page on our website. 

More importantly, I hope that you are using this time at home with your family to its full potential! I would love for you to share with me the wonderful activities you have been doing with your family whether it is creative, learning, cooking or simply having fun! It is so important that during this time, you make sure you have time to just enjoy yourselves and have some fun. Do what you enjoy and what makes you happy.

Mrs Garratt is busy texting your parents your login codes for the Seesaw Class App. Download it from the App store or Google Play and get uploading some of the great things you have been doing. It may give others in our class some ideas of things to do to have fun at home! You can communicate with me through that app and I can share some of the activities I have been up to at home too!

Below are some ideas for you to do with your family and share with me on Seesaw.

  • Design an obstacle course in your garden (if you have one; you can always do one inside too!). Use different objects and plan how you will move when you reach each obstacle. Will you have to dribble a football/basketball? Will you have to balance? Will you have to crawl? I’d love to see videos and pictures of your courses!
  • Get cooking and baking. Do you have any good recipes you can share with us all? Why not upload an instruction video with you making the recipe so we know how to do it? I wonder who will be the most creative in the kitchen.
  • On your Seesaw activities, you will see our template we were using for our design and technology project which was to build a toy using cams and gears. Have a go at finishing that design template and building your toy using materials at home like cardboard, straws, glue and paints if you have some. Upload pictures onto your template on Seesaw.

I am really looking forward to seeing some videos and photos of you all so do get sharing!

Weekly quizzes on www.diagnosticquestions.com are set on Friday and the deadline is Wednesday.

This is to further support what we are learning in class but to stretch children to think of how and why they know - not just answer the question. 

If your child has any difficulty with logging in or accessing the internet,  they can see me for support in their own time.
