Dear parents / carers
In case of school closure or the need for families to self-isolate, we have prepared the following learning for the children to complete.
Mr J Wilson and the Year 6 Team
Hamilton Trust Learning Packs
Hamilton Trust are providing free home learning packs for English and maths for Years 1-6 for parents to download and use at home. The packs provide an excellent learning resource, particularly for English as they link with reading and grammar.
MyMaths (log in details are stuck inside the children’s reading journals). For every day the school is closed, we ask children to complete two tasks as a minimum. We will be logging on to check the work is completed and setting extension tasks as required
Times Tables Rock Stars (log in details are stuck inside the children’s reading journals). For every day the school is closed, we ask children to complete two times tables as a minimum and enjoy as many of the games as they would like. We will be logging on to check the work is completed and setting extension tasks as required
This is a task spread across an entire week – research the impact single-use plastics are having on our planet and what we could do personally to help. The children may present this in any format they choose eg PowerPoint, poster, cartoon strip, video etc
Please can you continue with your four weekly reads.
Have a go at playing the Bookopoly board game with your family.
We appreciate that finding resources to print and play this activity at home may be challenging but we think the children will really enjoy this game and it can be used multiple times over the coming week. We wonder if the children might enjoy making the board game from a cereal box or something similar? The supporting cards and challenges can also be made or simply referred to on the screen.
It’s fun to learn together! To encourage communication between the children we would like them to complete the following task.
Task: Create a 10 question quiz for a friend based on the human body. This could be created on kahoot (free quiz making website) and then shared electronically with friends or written down and shared on the phone/video call.
Please try to create your own drum beat rhythms. Try different combinations of the snare drum and bass drum. Explore which works best. Can you recreate rhythms from your favourite songs?
Go onto drum games and try out the rhythms that you created on the virtual drum kits.
For children learning to play musical instruments.
Increase your knowledge of music theory and start working towards your Grade 1 Theory exam.
