Hi everyone, it was great to speak to some of you yesterday, looking forward to speaking to more of you today. How are your shoe designs coming along?

Monday 18th May
Welcome to another week Year 6. The last week before half term. We have the video chats today, I will send your invites a couple of minutes beforehand.
So for English this week we have a project: Over the course of the week i would like you to invent a new product. I would like you to design a new sports shoe. There are two links below where you can customise your own Nikes or a pair of Vans online (just don't buy them!!). You don't have to use them it is just an option. You can of course design your own from scratch. It is then up to you this week to produce a portfolio about the product. You will need to write a 'design brief' about your shoe: who should wear it, what is it's main purpose etc... materials and price. Just like you did with your photo booth for Children in Need. You will then need to create an advert for your shoe. This can be on paper, on the computer, create a radio jingle anything you like. Finally you will need a presentation of some sort to showcase your product. This could be a powerpoint or a film. Be as imaginative as you like, use whatever resources you have. It can be done through One Note, paper, online-however you like. Do a little bit each day until you have a new sports shoe ready to go into production to sell to the masses. BE INVENTIVE AND USE YOUR IMAGINATION!
Here are the links for the shoes, you will have to use your independent navigation skills to work through the websites:

Friday 15th May
Hi everyone, what a lovely day! With this in mind and as it would usually be my day off, today one of your tasks is to get outside. You could help around the garden, do some exercise outside or (if you have a sibling, give your adult a rest and amuse them for a while). If you can take some photographs i'd love to see what you are up to.
I've posted the answers for your 'silly sats' tests so that you can correct any errors you made or check if you marked them accurately. I would love it if you would continue to read (outside might be nice). PLEASE NOTE: The link here is for the answers for paper 2+ 3 (problem solving and reasoning), NOT THE ARITHMETIC PAPER. The answers for that are in the drop down box below.
The schedule for the video calls will remain the same for Monday and Tuesday 10am, 12pm, 2pm. Please let me know through TEAMS if you would like a slot and what time. Remember to let me know if you are doing a quiz or have an idea for a game. Have a lovely weekend everyone.
Thursday 14th May
Hello year 6,
I will be posting the timetable for next weeks video calls in TEAMS later today. Remember if you want to design a quiz or if you have any ideas for some games we can play let us know.

Wednesday 13th May
Hello year 6. Thank you for all of your video chats this week. Mrs Dawber and I really enjoyed talking to you. We will be organising some for next week again so watch here and in TEAMS for the next schedule. Here is todays work:

Have a look at some of these ideas for art at home using colour. Can you recreate any of them?
Tuesday 12th May
Hi everyone, todays work is below. After speaking to many of you yesterday, we got a clearer picture of how you are approaching your work. As a result, i will be asking you to revisit bits you haven't got around to do rather than just adding more content unnecessarily and when it is suitable. Looking forward to speaking to some of you again today. Have a good day.
Today you will have a reasoning and problem solving paper to correct it is available below.
Continuing with the reading skills for instruction writing:
Please continue to work through the powerpoint from Thursday 5th May.
Monday 11th May
Hi everyone, It is a very unusual week for me as your teacher because at around this time every year I am usually going to work to administer some very important tests that I have spent all year preparing my class for. It is what would have been our SATS week! I'm interested to hear your thoughts on the fact that they will not be happening this year. Join me on TEAMS today and we can have a discussion. Are you feeling disappointed because you wanted to showcase how much progress you have made this year? Are you relieved because you weren't looking forward to them? Are you not bothered either way? I feel a little bit sad because i know how hard you have been working to improve yourselves. However, a test does not define you as a learner, not one bit. Tests or no tests, you are all amazing, individual little humans who excel in different things: lots of which can't even be measured with a test score. So take a deep sigh, we won't be doing our SATS tests this week. We can however have a little fun in the meantime and have a go at some silly SATS papers for you to mark. Remember if you have a video call booked for today your invite is in your email and your calendar. Click on it at your time slot and you will join the call. Have a good day.
In the drop down list you will find an arithmetic test that needs marking. How well did i do?
I will put it on One Note.
Today i would like you to write a short story, no more than 300 words about whatever you like. However, you MUST include 15 year 5/6 words (available from the link). They must be spelt correctly and used in the correct context. It can be a silly story, a scary one, whatever you like. The key aspect is to include those words.
Using retrieval and inference to familiarise yourselves with writing instructions.
Watch this video from Bill Nye the science guy. We looked at the eye a while ago (29th April: the slide show is still available). It will give you further understanding about the eye in preparation for some more work on this.
Thursday 7th May
Hi year 6,
What is unusual about the following words:

The British School have uploaded lots of different activities for you to use:
A video to explain what VE day is:
Please send me anything you have done, i love seeing your work. Take your time, it's a bank holiday weekend so there is lots available for you to try.
Please keep an eye out on TEAMS later today as that is where i will be posting the timetable for your video calls for next week and how you can access them.
Have a great weekend, i look forward to seeing your creations.
Wednesday 6th May
Hello year 6,
There is a lot of information i would like to give out today so please read carefully.
Firstly, your adults received a letter yesterday from Mrs Wright with an update about school information. In that letter it talked about the TEAMS video calls starting next week. This will be an opportunity for me to talk to small groups of you and you to each other. I will not be able to see you but i will be visible to you...I will make sure i have brushed my hair that day!
The groups will be a maximum of 6 and will only need to be for 10/15 minutes or longer if you need. It would be great to hear from as many as you as possible. It is not a teaching video, just a catch up. I have posted the time slots in TEAMS. I will need you to let me know your preferred time slot so that i can put a timetable together. You can do it with friends or just choose a time that is suitable for you. I may have to move groups around to make sure i have enough of you in each group. Please encourage those classmates that we don't hear from in the chat as i know lots of you have other means of contacting your friends that i can't use.
PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR TIME SLOT BY 2:00pm THURSDAY AFTERNOON I will let you know how to access your video slot once i have the timetable put together.
Secondly, I mentioned in the chat yesterday about Flipgrid. We will be looking to use this video app soon so as part of todays learning all i would like you to do is have a look at what Flipgrid is. It can be added to your launchpad.
Please keep sending me completed work so i can give you feedback. I love seeing all of your hard work. Todays work is below:
Triangles yesterday, quadrilaterals today:
Today i would like you to email me the answers to these questions:
What is your favourite memory of year 6 so far?
What do you think your best piece of work was and why?
What your favourite subject has been in year 6 and why.
Continue with yesterdays powerpoint.
This is a recap on longitude and latitude from BBC Bitesize:
Tuesday 5th May
Good morning everyone, lots of things have been happening behind the scenes here to help you through lock down. Look out for a letter or text from Mrs Wright to tell you about some exciting ideas we have coming up to support you further. Keep an eye open in the Teams learning chat as I will be posting details in there. Did you see the video message we made for you? It is available on Twitter, it made lots of the staff tear up a little bit.

Click on countdown to keep those four operation skills up
I am posting a family maths challenge, work through it at your own pace. It is designed for you to use your adults to help you so see if you can get them in on it help you.
I'm posting a reading paper below for you to correct just like the SPAG one yesterday. You can tackle it however you want. For example, you could identify the retrieval questions and just mark those or check the word meaning answers by googling the correct definition or using a dictionary. Make it work for you, managing your own learning is an important skill for you to take to secondary school.
It will be available in One Note.
I have posted a slide show below (it will be available in One Note) for you to read through regarding keeping your body physically healthy. It is really interesting and has challenges for you to complete. Work through it throughout the week. I'm going to follow it too and complete the tasks. It is definitely something to think about, particularly whilst we are in indoors for a lot of the time.
Keep reading and accessing TTRS. It would be great to hear from some of you in TEAMS.
Have a good day. I look forward to seeing and hearing about your work today.

Wednesday 22nd April
Good morning everyone! Thank you for the work you sent me yesterday i'm really enjoying reading your work.
Today I'm giving you these links because I want us to work together on something. The government has set up an online school to support you all whilst we are learning from home. I've had a look and it is good. So as we move forward we are going to recap a lot of areas that I know from being your teacher we need some more help with to prepare you for secondary school. So I'm going to post some links for a couple of days for you to access the lessons. It is very easy use. Once we've had a couple of lessons I would like your feedback because I will need your help going forward about what learning you would like more of. Below I have uploaded an activity sheet which has so many ideas to try at home that doesn't require any devices but some do require parental permission. These will be our DT and Art activities so when I refer to choosing an activity that is the list to go to. So here is todays learning:
Choose one of the activities from the list (drop down list below). When completed if you can, send me a picture.
To try out the government resources we are going to dig a little bit deeper about what caused the first world war which in turn had consequences for the start of the second world war. Click on this link and it will take you to the lesson.
Equivalent fractions!!! Fractions is a big topic and this little area is definitely something you need practice with so you become experts at them. Follow this link for your lesson.
Verbs!!!! Need i say more??? :) Click here:
Have a good day!
Tuesday 21st April
Good morning everyone, here is todays work:
There ia an image below which discusses variables. There are three questions that need responding to. You can write the answers in your workbook. I would like you to think about the variables as well as the investigation the children will be carrying out.

To ensure your handwriting is still beautiful please copy out the correct sentences in your work book which has the correct punctuation. There are four sheets so please complete a sheet each day for this week. The answers are also available for you to manage your learning and see where you may have gone wrong. We learn very effectively from our mistakes.
Please continue to read. I will be setting some book review tasks so you will need some reading to help you complete. Your reading doesn't just have to be books...think about blogs, newspapers, comics, online articles anything and everything that takes your interest!
Similar to yesterday, i have set another short writing task. I loved reading the ones you emailed me yesterday they were so creative. Write them in your books and if you can send me a picture in teams or by email.
