Home Learning - Friday 9th December 2011
What an amazing first term. I am so proud of all the fantastic learning that has taken place during our 'Moving People' learning theme and thoroughly enjoyed seeing it celebrated in the Year 6 Exhibition.
Such an amazing display of creativity and you all looked so confident, happy and knowledgeable.
This is the last home learning for this term!
Literacy: Please reflect on the exhibition making sure you have answered all the questions at the top of the sheet. Please present your reflections with care thinking about the content of your reflections, your writing skills and your presentation.
Maths: You have 2 x MyMaths tasks to complete.
Connected Learning: There will be no connected learning this week as we have completed our matrix tasks. Well done and thanks again for being such a wonderful class.
Home Learning - Friday 2nd December
What a busy week we have had!
It all started with an impressive Sports Day, followed by an exciting Evacuation Drama and now we are getting stuck in to the
'Moving People' Exhibition of Learning preparations. The classroom is looking amazing.
Thanks to all of you for your endless enthusiasm and teamwork.
You are all superstars!
From the comments we received it was clear that you enjoyed our WWII evacuation afternoon. You all did a fantastic job of staying in character and empathizing with the children of the past who had to be evacuated from London to escape the bombings.
Reflecting on the afternoon, your home learning is to write a letter home to your mother telling them how you feel about this adventure. You need to include details of the trip to the station, the train journey and arriving at the village hall. What is it like in the countryside? What is the village and the family you are staying with like? How is your new school? Are the teachers strict?
Remember to include feelings. What would you be nervous about? What would you be excited about? Perhaps it is the first time living away from your parents.
Remember, this is an informal letter as you are writing to a family member.
Is the address in the top right hand corner of the page?
Does the date of the letter come underneath the address? (Choose an appropriate date from the time period).
Does the letter start with Dear… or another type of greeting?
Is there a clear beginning, middle and end?
Does it keep the reader interested - using well chosen words?
Has the letter been signed off correctly eg. Miss you, Love from, etc.
You have been set 2 further MyMaths tasks.
If you have time, please bake for our exhibition. Alternatively, spend this time completing your final projects for the exhibition on Wednesday 7th December at 1.10pm. If you are presenting then remember to practise your words so you can speak with confidence, clarity and volume.
A fantastic morning enjoyed by all!
Well done 6K! You may not have won Sports Day but you didn't stop smiling and persevering!
I hope you all had a great morning. What was your favourite event?
