Week beginning 1st June 2020

 

Good morning Class 6! Welcome back to our final half term before the summer holidays! I hope you all had a wonderful half term and enjoyed spending time with your families and making the most of the beautiful weather. It has been lovely to hear all about what you have been doing up to now and I am looking forward to hearing all about your news over the next few weeks also. I love seeing the photos you are sending me, so please keep sending.

 

This weather is beautiful isn’t it? I’m certainly enjoying being out in the garden doing some gardening and playing  fun games with my children. I have seen a lot more butterflies and bees around over the last couple of week. Have you noticed this too? The butterflies are beautiful and so gentle and quiet when they fly past. Sometimes I don’t notice them on the flowers until they fly off on their way!

I think this weather is going to continue to be glorious for a while yet, so over the next couple of weeks I think it would be nice to do lots of outside activities.

I have added a few new  activities below for you to try, either  on your own or with a grown up.

Remember… don’t worry if you don’t manage to complete everything  or if you can think of other exciting things to do, I would love to hear all about them!

Also, if you want to carry on with the previous activities, you can.

Maths

This week we are going to think about Time.

Watch the video from the link below for an introduction.

 https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zqkwmp3

Think about the following questions and choose the activity you think suits you.

Can you tell the time at 0 clock? Half past and quarter past? o clock, half past and quarter to

Can you count in fives to tell how many minutes past the hour it is?5 minute intervals

Can you tell the time on a 24 hour clock?24 hour time

Can you read a bus timetable and work out how long journeys take? Look in your Heinemann textbook and challenge yourself to complete an activity reading bus or train timetables.

Maybe you could make a timeline of your day using your prefered way of writing the time, or

Make a paper plate clock to help you to practise telling the time. I know some of you like using Roman Numerals, use them on your clock if you like!

Remember:

It is also important to know and be able to spell the days of the week and the months of the year, so keep practising these too.

Also, continue to practise you times tables.

English

I would love to hear all about your half term holiday. You can either send me a video of you telling me all about it or write a recount for me. Think about things that you have done that you have enjoyed. Maybe you have had fun in the garden, been in a paddling pool, had water fights, played games with your family, been on walks, planting and much more. I would love to hear about what you got up to.

When you write your recount, remember it is in the past tense as you will be telling me about something you have done. Remember to use capital letters and full stops. Have a go at using time connectives in your writing, for example, first, next, then, after that.

Have a look at some recount writing on Twinkl to help you.

Alternatively, draw me a picture of what you have been up to!

 

Keep practising your spellings each week.

Keep practising neat letters.

Keep reading a few pages from a book each day.

Also, don’t forget Oxford Owl stories. (Link below).

Topic

Minibeasts and how they adapt to their environment.

When we were in school we were finding out how different animals adapt to their environment so that they are able to stay safe and survive. I wonder how

minibeasts, being such small creatures,  are able to keep themselves safe and survive! Can you find out?

Watch the video below and listen out for different ways each of the minibeasts adapts to the environment in which they live.

How do they stay safe? How do they survive? Maybe pause the video each time you discover something new and write it down. Maybe tell your mam, dad, brother or sister what you have discovered.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zkkc87h

Some activities you could do next:

Look again for mini creatures in your garden. Can you identify any ways in which they protect themselves?

Draw or paint a minibeast of your choice. Write words or labels around it, telling me  how it adapts to it’s environment.

Write a fact file about a chosen minibeast. How many facts can you tell me about how the minibeast adapts to it’s environment?

Remember you can use Encyclopaedia Britanica on Hwb.

You can also use JIT on J2e to do your task.

 

 

Did you make your bug hotel? If you did, I would love to see a photo. If you didn’t, maybe you would like to have a go this week.

PE/Keeping Fit

It is important for you to be active each day, even if just for a short time. Some things you could try in your garden: Throwing/catching and kicking a ball, making an obstacle course, running/hopping/skipping/jumping around your garden.

I know some of you have been working out with Joe Wickes and doing yoga with your family. Thats great! Keep up the good work!

 Maybe you could help with jobs around the house too. Choose 2 from the list below:

Help to set the table for dinner

Help to hang the washing out

Help to create a shopping list

Help to water the plants

Help to wash the dishes

 

Also, remember to have a look at ‘NPT Education Inclusion Service’ page on Facebook where there are lots of useful resources and handouts that have been posted.

 

 

All the links, including useful resources and websites are still below, for you to access.

Have fun everyone, and keep smiling! Hopefully it wont be long before we are all back together again!

Take care and stay safe! XXX

 

Sending you a big hug to say ... Keep smiling, keep shining and ...

The spider is climbing.

Now, either:

Write a fact file for your favourite mini beast or

I have 8 long legs to run around.

I am mischievous and sneaky.

I am as fast as a race car.

I am as black as the night sky.

Week beginning 4th May 2020

Hello again Class 6. I hope you are all safe and well and are enjoying being at home with your family. I hope you enjoyed some of the activities from last week and had fun searching for mini beasts in your garden. I was looking to see what I could find in my garden with my little boy. We noticed that we saw different little creatures after it had been raining. Did you notice this? Hopefully, the weather is going to be dry this week so that we can get back outside.

I have added some activities below for you to try, either  on your own or with a grown up.

Remember… Do not worry if you don’t get everything done or if you can think of other exciting things to do, I would love to hear all about them!

Maths

Go on a mini beast hunt around your garden. What can you find? Don’t forget to go hunting! Under stones, behind plant pots, on walls, near drains….

Can you make your own tally chart to show your findings. Now, go to  j2e on Hwb and use your results to create a bar chart to show me what you found.

If you would prefer you can use the minibeasts in the picture  to create a bar graph. Go to the link below.

t-n-2830-minibeasts-bar-graph-activity-sheet-_ver_1

Also, keep practising : writing neat numbers,  number bonds to 10 and 20, days of the week, months of the year and your times tables.

Continue to work through your maths work books.

 

English

This week I would like you to think about Adjectives and Adverbs. Watch the short videos to remind you what they are.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zbkcvk7/articles/zy2r6yc

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zbkcvk7/articles/zgsgxfr

Can you use adjectives and adverbs to describe the minibeasts you found and write some sentences using them?

For example: The woodlouse was  grey, hard and small. He ran quickly from under the stone.

Challenge: How many different words can you find for each of your adjectives. Use your thesaurus or the adjective sheet below.

t2-e-2190-alternative-adjectives-vocabulary-grid–_ver_10

If you do not want to write about the minibeasts you have found, maybe draw and colour  a picture and talk about them. Maybe, someone could take a photo of your drawings and record you telling me all about them. I would love to see them. Good luck!

Now, think of some adjectives to describe yourself and write them in the rainbow. Colour your rainbow brightly and display it in your window. Use the link below.

Reading

I know some of you were really enjoying reading Project X Alien Adventures.  Have a look at Oxford Owl online. There are so many lovely e books on there for you to read alone or share a book with mam or dad .

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk

 

Topic

When you are doing your hunt for mini creatures, think about where you find them. Do you notice that you find certain creatures in similar places? For example, are certain creatures hiding in dark and damp places? Are certain creatures near flowers and plants? Record what you discover, maybe on a piece of paper, by taking a photo. However you like.

Keep your findings safe, we will be thinking about them next week!

Here is another activity I thought you might enjoy. We have been seeing lots of beautifully coloured and painted rainbows around over the last few weeks. I’m sure you have one in your window. I do too. I am going to try the science experiment below. Have a go, and let me know how it goes. I would love to see a picture!

I will be uploading exciting activities for you to do at home each week. You will be able to do some of these  activities  outside in your garden so that you can make the most of this lovely sunshine. It is very strange not seeing you and I am really missing you all. Lets hope we are all back together again soon, having fun in school. In the meantime, take care, have fun and stay safe!

Maths

For maths this week I would like you to use the daily activities on BBC Bitesize.  I will send you an e mail to let you know which lesson to access. This will be a fun lesson each day, where you are shown a video clip and then you will be able to have a practise on your own. Enjoy!

You could even record a video of yourself telling me about what you have been up to.

Also, continue with your weekly spellings from your spelling skills books, writing neat letters, using a dictionary to find different words and a thesaurus to find new words.

Topic

I remember us talking about a new topic for this term and we did mention ‘Creature Comforts’ and ‘Minibeasts’. As we are all at home and the weather is good at the moment , I thought it would be a great opportunity for us to get ‘Out and About’and explore our gardens.

This week is just a quick introduction into the topic on Minibeasts. Click on the link below for an introduction:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z44g9j6

Go on a mini beast hunt around your garden, you’ll be surprised what you find hiding in different places!

Maybe draw what you find, take photos or make a video of your findings. We’ll learn more about your mini beasts next week!

PE/Keeping Fit

It is important for you to be active each day, even if just for a short time. Some things you could try in your garden: Throwing/catching and kicking a ball, making an obstacle course, running/hopping/skipping/jumping around your garden.

Try a Daily Sensory Circuit:

  1. Running around for 10 seconds. 10 star jumps. 10 knee lifts on the spot. (Marching)
  2. Play Simon Says. Balance on 1 foot for the count of 5. Change feet. Walk along a line carefully, putting 1 foot in front of the other. (Remember to use you arms to help you to balance). 10 push ups against the wall or fence.
  3. Lie down on the floor/grass and close your eyes. Breath in and out 10 times. And relax!

Other useful wbsites to help you keep fit are:
