Healthy Eating and Active Living: Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice

Our environments - where we live, work, learn, shop, and play - have a big influence on what we eat and how active we are. Many Americans - adults and kids alike - live in environments that make it harder to choose healthy foods and be physically active.

Christmas Homework

 

There is an English and a maths test for you to practise. No spellings or times tables on paper, but you can use computers to practise. 

 

Project: Our English topic is legends, you can do a project based on Robin Hood. You can produce texts or posters if you like but it might be nice to make something like his hat for example.

 

Have a lovely Christmas and New Year. If you don't celebrate Christmas then just have a lovely break.

Fact or Fiction E04 Robin Hood

Here are some videos to prepare you for our new English topic "Legends". What is the difference between a myth and a legend? Myths are folk tales which are known to be made up and often have magical characters. Legends are folk tales that are thought to have some basis in fact.

King Arthur and Robin Hood = Legend
Hercules and Icarus = Myth

Sharks!

 

After half term we be doing a non-fiction topic in our English work. We have decided to study sharks. As a bit of pre-learning you can watch the following documentaries and you should be shark experts before we even start the unit.

Sharks : Scavengers of the Seas - documentary BBC

Before being an earthly paradise with enchanting colours, the lagoon of New-Caledonia is above all a paradise for sharks. Usually considered as fierce predators, sharks really are opportunistic scavengers. Scavengers that are not too picky when it comes to their menu: feathers, fins or fur, anything will do.

Shark Coast - Natural World - BBC

Southern Africa's coastline is home to over 100 species of shark - more than anywhere else in the world for such a short stretch of coastline. A watery savannah is prowled not by lions, leopards and hyenas but by even more impressive predators.

The shark represents all we fear in a dangerous wild animal. But do sharks really deserve their reputation as cold-blooded killers? There are over 350 species of shark, each with distinct attributes that have developed in many different ways.

Year 6 Presents "Hamlet: A play by William Shakespeare"

Welcome to Year 6

 

 

First of all, thanks to the children for giving me such a warm welcome. I can honestly say, that the children here are some of the friendliest that I have had the pleasure of working with.

Below, I will outline some of the things that I we will be doing over the next few weeks and any other bits of information that are important right now. Should you have any issues please speak to me and I will try arrange a convenient time to speak to you.

 

Maths - We will begin with number and calculations. Throughout the year children will have opportunities for word problems and problem solving (mathematical investigations). Furthermore, regular practise of multiplications will be undertaken as they underpin so much of our maths curriculum. As well as the children’s homework, if we could practise these at home it would be most helpful. The website “Hit the Button” is a favourite tool of children to practise this skill.

English - We will be looking at fiction first of all and I have selected a children’s version of Hamlet for this unit. In non-fiction we will be looking at journalistic writing, which we will link to the Shakespeare story. Spellings will be sent home regularly and the children will also have regular practise of grammar, spelling and punctuation, beginning with compound sentences or drops (which the children refer to as “sandwiches” apparently.)

Science - Year 6 children do revision units in science and we start with “Light”.

Computing - The children will again, re-cover units. We will start with desktop publishing and use a program called “Inkscape”. It is open source software, so the children can download and use it at home for free. In the next few weeks I will put a link to all the free software that we use on the website.

History - Greeks

Geography - Where does all our stuff come from?

Art - Drawing

French - Our School

Music - Improvisation

P.E. - Net games and football with Blackburn Rovers. (Should any of the children show skill in this area, they could possibly get a game with the first team ;))

R.E. Christianity/Sikhism/Judaism

If you wish to support your children at home then please help them with their homework, encourage them to read at home and check the blog and website to encourage digital learning.
