Friday 10th July 2020

 

Good morning, Year 6! Once again, another Friday is upon us. This Friday feels a little different because today we can look forward to seeing (hopefully) most of you when we get together for our end of year pizza reunion next Wednesday. To see you all before you leave us forever makes us very happy, and it is a great opportunity to create a happy memory at the end of what has been an unusual and unique school year. 2020 will live long in all our memories.

 

Have you sent your video in to ensure you are part of our ‘virtual’ farewell assembly? The Year 6 Team have been trying hard to encourage you all to send in your contribution as we want you all to be part of it. But time is running out (TODAY IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO SEND IT IN!!) so we make another plea to you to record your video and send it in to us at worksharing@st-annes.coventry.sch.uk

Good morning Year 6. I hope you all had a great weekend. Let us start our new week with a nonsense poem that Krzysztof has sent into us:

 

I went to the elephant by the rhino.

Chatter, Chatter, Chatter!

I hear the elephant from far away.

The tuna ran out, so I had to walk my best.

If it wasn’t for the rhino then I would not have had a bath.

Later, I exit the elephant with my sheep and walk to my flamengo.

I eat my T-Rex and get ready to roar.

I close my peanut butter and fall a tree.

 

Thank you, Krzysztof!

  • You will find English and maths activities on Purple Mash

Good morning Year 6! This is a very exciting week! Some of you are returning to school where there will be a very big welcome awaiting you. For those of you remaining at home, we want you to know that you have not been forgotten and that we very much want to include you in our learning program plan. 

Over the next few weeks, the learning ideas on our class page will very much reflect what the children will be doing in school.  Creative Curriculum for this term is all about the Frozen Kingdom so some of your activities will be linked to this. RE work will include activities about Mary and the Church Community. We will also include revision work on our basic maths skills, as well as continuing to strive to improve our reading and SPAG ability. All of this will hopefully help us to stay connected in a special way during this very unique time in our lives.

The other exciting thing happening this week is that English Premier League football will be returning to our tv screens from Wednesday, and the FA Cup will return at the end of June.

With this in mind, you will find in your learning today a reading comprehension text all about the history of the FA Cup (answers at the very end of the document).

You will also find a mat full of a range of maths challenges from simplifying fractions to attempting a word problem (answers at the end of the document).

An extra maths challenge: there is a number and place value booklet that will help you revise many of the skills that you already practiced in class this year. Choose an area that you feel you need to revise the most – no need to complete the entire booklet!! (Answers will be posted on class page tomorrow).

Grammar today is an activity on using apostrophes to contract words. (Answers will be posted on class page tomorrow).

We would love to hear from you, and any work that you are proud of please share it with us at worksharing@st-annes.co.uk.

 

Have a great day!

Good Morning,

 

Today you have a number of activities to complete....

 

                    - As usual, you have your daily maths problem and today it is on factors

                    - Maths is fraction work today and you have done  all of this type of work  before in class, so it will be good revision for you.

                    - Reading is a playscript of a story I am sure you have heard before. 

                    -Grammar - Model verbs, pronouns, clauses, parenthesis. Remember if you are not sure there are hint boxes as you go along.

 

 

The answers for reading and grammar are at the end of the document after the questions.  The answers for your daily maths problem and fraction work are at the bottom of today's post.

 

Stay safe,

 

Mr Kitching

Good Morning Children,

 

I hope you and your families are all well and staying safe during these unusual times.  

 

You may have realised that today would have actually been SATS week and right now  we probably would have just be  starting our SPAG test.   I know all of you would have done so well this week as a result of all the hard work you had being putting in all year, but the SATS are not the only thing that  define your success at primary school and I am proud of everyone's achievements this year.

 

We hope, if safe to do so , we will see you back for the final half term and we will keep you updated with any developments. 

 

At the moment.....remember :

  • There  will be Purple Mash activities  set for you each day.
  • A daily maths problem on the class page for you to challenge yourself
  • Continued access to TT Rockstars
  • Spag.com test to complete before the new ones are added next week.

 

Take care and hopefully see you all soon.

Good Morning Children,

Hope you and your family are well in these unusual times. 

Please try and do a little bit every day with your studies. It will make a huge difference when you return back to school and gives you something purposeful to do in this time. 

There will be a Purple Mash Activity set for you every day  and I have written comments on any work that was completed last week.    You should be well in to your home learning packs by now and hopefully you have  produced a couple of high quality pieces  of work -> draft, edit and improve, final version.

It's great to see how many of you doing TTRockstars and interesting to see the Leaderboards.  You are in Year 6 so try and make sure you have all the top spots!

If you have produced a piece of writing (or any work you feel proud of)  remember you can email it to worksharing@st-annes.coventry.sch.uk where we can put it on the website and on twitter.

Take care,

Mr Kitching

Maths Problem of the Day 25th March 2020

 

Here is the daily Maths problem from White Rose.  Have a go and see how you do!

Home Learning - Maths

 

There are some fantastic online lessons @ White Rose.

Year 6

 

Dear Parents,                                                           

 

Welcome to Year 6.   I’m looking forward to a happy and productive school year.

To help the year run smoothly there are a few things that I feel would be helpful for you to know.

On Tuesday your child be participating in P.E. sessions which will be outside where possible.  Please could you ensure that your child has the correct kit in school on these days.

Homework will be given out on Fridays and will be expected in for the following Wednesday.  All homework will be based on your child’s current learning in the classroom.  If your child is finding any work difficult, please encourage them to speak to me before Wednesday so I can support them.  

Your child should be reading every night.   I have explained in class that they should write in their reading records a minimum of three times every week and it should be signed by a parent at least once a week.  I will take these in weekly to monitor and I appreciate your support with this.

Finally, as you may know in Year 6, the children will be taking their KS2 SATS tests in May.   This will mean that the children will be assessed against national standards and their scores passed on to their secondary schools.  Please be assured that this will not be the only focus this year.   Your child will receive a balanced curriculum and by May, will be fully prepared to take these assessments. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am also on the Playground every Wednesday so feel free to speak to me. 

 

Sincerely,

Mr Kitching Year 6 Teacher/Senior Leadership Team
