Dear Parents, below are some suggestions for home learning activities to support your child's learning. I will upload some tasks on Seesaw and the children can always upload things to share with me. The most important activities are reading daily and completing the SPaG and maths papers in the brown envelopes. I would encourage children that are struggling with questions on the papers to watch the YouTube tutorials or message via SeeSaw.

Spring Term 2020
Year 6 have been very busy this term working on their topic of 'Rainforests'. In English, we have been reading 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell, learning lots of rich new vocabulary and enjoying the story as it unfolds. It's a great adventure story and is inspiring lots of our wider curriculum work - such as our geography and art.
In maths we have recently been learning about fractions and algebra - we have learnt how to complete all 4 operations with fractions and how to find fractions of shapes and amounts. We also know how to use letters and numbers together in our maths when we are doing algebra - this is tricky but we have been doing really well.
Our upcoming focus in maths is on area, perimeter, volume and ratio!
In science we have been learning about Evolution, inheritance and adaptations- we have been engaged in these topics and learnt about the different adaptations in plants and animals and how characteristics change over time. We have completed a carousel of activities exploring how animals evolve and conducted our own research on evolution to create a video report on how life has changed over billions of years. We have raised interesting scientific questions and have developed our ability to control variables in an experiment.
Our geography topic is linked to the rainforest- we have discovered the similarities and differences between our local area and south America using QR codes and have researched the current issues in the Amazon rainforest; this helped us make fantastic videos using apple clips about overcoming these problems and developed our awareness of the wider global community. We have also learnt about how to read and interpret ordinance survey maps from around our local area, how to use a compass, plot 6 figure grid references through a treasure hunt and created our own keys for different types of maps.
In computing we have been discussing interesting and important topics surrounding using the interest safely. We have learnt about how to check if a website is safe, how to correctly and safely tackle cyber-bullying. We have used seesaw to explore the power of words online and the impact they may have- our responses were thought provoking. We had a great debate on the benefits and drawbacks of using technology in which we presented excellent points and that challenged our thinking. We have also been exploring about being kind to each other and the importance of having a heathy balance of time on and offline.
