Well done everyone; you're doing a great job a tackling isolation head-on. You've made a really good start to working at home and I've had some brilliant pieces of work sent to me. Please, keep it up next week! We'll be back together before you know it.
Below are some photos of you working at home, pieces or work you're particularly proud of or some of the balances you were exploring in PE.
I will be holding a short, online video lesson on Monday at 9am. I'd like to see as many of you as possible there, please.
Have a restful weekend,
Mrs Everett has set you work for tomorrow (Thursday 26th November) using google classroom. When you have logged on, you will be able to see your work, the resources and instructions for what to do. Don't forget that you will need to submit the work tomorrow (by clicking turn in assignment) so that Mrs Everett can mark it and give you feedback.
Please remember that you are expected to work just as hard while you are at home self-isolating as you would do in school. This time at home should not be considered a holiday and you will need to submit your work each day.
If you have any trouble using google classroom, please email me, Mrs Marvin (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will try to get you up and running. If you have any trouble with understanding the work, please email Mrs Everett.
There are some excellent google help pages to get you started with google classroom. Good luck.
From tomorrow, we're going to be asking you all to use google classroom to complete your home learning. Your parents will receive a username and password for each of you. Use these details to log into google classroom.

I hope you are all well and had a restful evening.
Below are the activities for today. You do not need to print off all the work sheets, but please write your answers in your home learning books. When you've completed your work, please ask your parents to take a photo and email it to me; I will then send you some feedback. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Please work through the powerpoint below on the active and passive voice. Have a go at the activities given on the slides shown.
Active and Passive
When you have completed the powerpoint, have a look at the two pages, from 'How Dogs Really Work', below. Can you identify any passive sentences? Can you change these to active? Can you spot any active sentences? Can you change these to passive? Please click on the images to enlarge them.
Finally, I would like you to think about your chosen animal (that you have been writing about this week) and write an explanation about how they move. I would like you to include at least two passive sentences and two relative clauses. Don't forget to try to use a range of punctuation too!
Please watch the video on equivalent fractions, below. When you've watched the video, you can then complete the worksheet.
Equivalent fractions worksheet
Work through the powerpoint below to begin understanding what physical features are. I would then like you to research different physical features of the UK and complete the sheet below. You need to identify 4 physical features of the UK, draw a diagram of them and describe what they look and where they can be found.
Physical features sheet
Finally, please continue with your daily reading, and if you have IDL/Nessy accounts, please log onto these for a minimum of 20 minutes a day,
If you need anything, please get in touch.
Take care and stay safe,
Well done year 6 for leaving so calmly and sensibly.
As we said in class, this time won't be quite the same as the Spring lockdown. You will all have maths, English and topic work set daily and will need to send your work back to us for feedback and marking.
To begin with, the work will be set here, on the class blog. We are hoping to move to google classroom which will enable you to save work in your own drive for us to mark. Tomorrow, we will send out user login details to get you started.
Mrs Everett and Mrs Marvin will be available during the working day to help you with any questions you may have.
Please remember that you need to stay at home during your self isolation period, but other members of your family do not need to self isolate.
Good luck everyone and we'll look forward to seeing you back in school on Monday 7th December.
The weather has been soggier than expected this week, but the children embraced it and made the most of their outdoor PE lesson.
All of the children have also been working hard on improving their understanding of relative pronouns and writing relative clauses. They have also worked on using BODMAS to calculate the answers to questions that use more than one operation e.g. (43 - 5) x 3 =114
Have a lovely (and hopefully drier) weekend!
Please continue to read daily for a minimum of 15 minutes.
Please complete the questions on relative clauses. The answers are the final page if you'd like to mark them. You don't need to print this out; you can write the answers in your homework book.
Please complete the questions in the workbook. Again, you are not expected to print this out; you can write the answers in your homework book. The answers are also given on the final page.
Please remember that homework should take you no longer than 45 minutes, so please do as much as you can in that time but try to split the time equally between the two tasks.
If you have log in details for either programme, please complete 20 minutes worth of activities every day, if possible.
Please come and see me if you have any questions.
Yet another busy week in Year 6 has come to an end. We've ran in cross country races, dressed up and worked out with Joe Wicks. Well done for all your efforts today; it was great to see you all dressed up for Children in Need. You all performed brilliantly in the cross country too. Hopefully, the results will come through soon.
Have a lovely weekend!
Please continue with your daily reading (minimum of 15 minutes) and record it on your reading sheet.
This week, we have started our UK topic in Geography. I would like you to choose one of the countries that make up the United Kingdom (excluding England) and create your own quiz about that country. Try to include at least 10 questions - they can be multiple choice if you like. Don't forget to also include the answers. We'll share your quizzes next week.
Calculate the answers to the following division questions. Please write your remainders as fractions. Once you've answered the questions, write your own word problems for the calculations. Think very carefully when listing the multiples of the divisor e.g. 16, 23 or 25 and the remainders that you carry over.
a) 453 ÷ 16 b) 2345 ÷ 23 c) 3465 ÷ 25
If you would like something extra to do, you can have a go at these division and remainder challenges on nrich:
If you have a username, please continue to use Nessy/IDL (ideally for 20 minutes a day) as an alternative to the above tasks but in addition to daily reading.
I hope the children have all enjoyed Bikeability this week; maybe we'll see a few more of the children cycling to school in the coming weeks. I will hand out certificates and badges next week.
This week, we've also enjoyed some sessions in the Forest School area. Unfortunately it was rather damp, so lighting the fire proved unsuccessful, but we managed to still enjoy some hot chocolate and biscuits yesterday. The children worked together to find different insects in the Forest School area and also created some habitats of their own.
The children have also been incredibly interested in US elections and we've had several discussions this week about the candidates and who we think should win. Hopefully, we'll finally have an answer by Monday!
We all said 'goodbye' to Alfie this week too. It's very sad to see him go, but we all know he'll do brilliantly at his new school and make lots of new friends. Good luck, Alfie!
Have a great weekend everyone!
