Home Learning Thursday 19th November

Good Morning Year Six.

Today is the first day of our home learning until Tuesday 1st December. Let’s start it with the level of commitment and effort that you have all shown throughout your time in year 6 so far. Over the course of the next couple of weeks, we are going to do a range of activities from your Year Six curriculum.

You can complete the work either on the computer or on the paper you have in the house. Once you have finished all your tasks, ask your parents to email all you work at the end of the day. This could be a picture, scan or the actual digital work. But please just send one email with all of the completed work of the day.

The email address for your completed work is – smstyear6@gmail.com

We will mark your work and reply the following day. Mrs Horne and Mr Knox will be giving their Maths and English groups separate feedback and feedback on the subjects they normally teach you.

Here is the time table for the next two days . . .

Once this is all completed, here are the answers. Celebrating what you got right and finding out where you have gone wrong is a really important part of learning. But no cheating ! If you really don’t understand where you went wrong, don’t panic. Just send us the work and we’ll make sure we go back over it when we return to school.

We shall be getting our creativity flowing starting with the activity . . .The City of Silence and then we’ll use the ideas that come out of it to do a variety of activities: writing short poems, trying some descriptive writing, giving feedback to writers, being a teacher, doing some artwork and finally publishing or performing our work.

Starting Activity: The City of Silence
Have you ever wondered what it is like in …
★the mountain of imagination,
★the castle of doom,
★the city of wonder,
★the maze of wishes,
★or the cellar of despair?
Well, you are about to find out! In this activity, we are going to create our own unique settings by combining places and things.
