Spring term

Spring Term 2 - week beginning 30th March 2020

Week 2 of Home Learning.

Dear Oak Tree,

I am really impressed with your amazing attitude to this different type of learning. You have been in regular contact and sent me some lovely work.  Enjoy yourselves and keep sending me phots of what you are getting up to - I will post these every day. Keep safe and well.

Mrs Smith 

English: new writing project.

 Some of you may have started last week but I would like you to write a science fiction story. Please watch the youtube video first and then look carefully at ALL the resources I have uploaded.  They wil help you produce a really good -quality piece of work.  I am noticing a lack of basic punctuation so in this piece of work I would like to see accurate and varied punctuation, complex sentences, cohesive structure and high-powered vocabulary.

Dear Oak Tree,

I hope you are all well and enjoying the beautiful sunshine.  

This is the first of many posts to support you in your learning over the next few weeks. I might not be able to post every day as I will be in school most of the time supporting the 'Key Worker' children.  It will be a different form of learning for you, not as formal or as structured as in school but please try and keep up some  sort of routine. It will be a mixture of formal maths and English and some more creative, fun projects. As we are no longer bound by SAT's and Age Related expectations, we can take our time and have a bit more fun!

Help each other out: work together on Google docs, talk on the Year 6 chat, e-mail me , ask older brothers and sisters, Mum and Dad or other family members. I will post pictures of what we are doing in school. Most of all, stay well, stay safe, be happy.

Daily PE

Joe Wicks is providing a free work out programme for you every day and we will be doing this in school, too. Follow this link:  https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html

If you have other plans for daily activity with your family, that is fine but please try and do something active every day. E-mail me some pictures or videos and I will load them up onto this page for all your classmates to see . 

Daily Maths for this week: Ratio

White Rose Maths have created interactive resources with a video and worksheets for you. You can do one lesson per day. Click on the link below, click on the pink Year 6 box , watch the video then have a go at the worksheet.

English: Argument

Your task for the next week is to write an argument addressing the following issue: Football Free Friday Should Be Abolished.

Please do this on Google docs and invite me to share it. You can work in pairs or small groups if you wish ( please write somewhere on the document who is working on it) but I want a carefully constructed, persuasive piece of writing. A good argument needs an introduction, valid arguments with explanations and good reasons and a conclusion. This is not a balanced argument so your whole piece should be expressing you point of view. Brainstorm your ideas first in your Home Workbook, plan the structure then write using high-powered language, complex sentences and accurate punctuation. 

I will be showing these to Mrs Cloke and Mrs. Whitehead when they are finished and  I really hope that you will be able to take part in the debate/referendum back at school. 

Other Activities to be completed when you have the time over the next few weeks: 

1. Planting: grow a plant from scratch, taking pictures as you go along. 

2. Decorate your Home Workbook.

3. Make a card and send a message to a family friend or relative who is self-isolating.

4. Keep a daily diary with photographs or pictures in your Home Workbook: these are un-precedented ( look it up) times and you will want to tell people about it in the future. 

5. Create a Google slide  ready for the leavers Service PowerPoint: this can include pictures from any stage of your life in or out of school. Share it with me and I will create a class presentation. 

6. Think about what you would like to do for the Leavers' Service - hopefully we will be back at school then but if not, I will need videos to create the virtual presentation. 

7. Paint a picture.
8. Create a moving vehicle out of junk materials.

9. Research about a topic of your choosing - create a Google slides presentation and share it with me. 

If you have any good ideas about activities which you have thought up at home, share them with me and I will post them here.

Take care and I will hopefully see you very soon. 

Mrs Smith

Thank you for all your hard work Oak Tree.

Well done for your first week of home learning. Everyone has been in touch this week and I have seen some great individual and collaborative work. Keep the photos coming in. A big thank you to all your parents and family members who have supported you. Your reward is ... no homework! I will post next week's tasks ready for Monday morning.  I am missing you all. Mrs Smith

I thought you  might like to see what it is like to be in school at the moment. It's not the same without you all there!

Joe Smith has been incredibly busy!

Art at Alexander's, papier mache at Evie Eames', you have been very busy and creative.  I just hope Sam remembers to change out of his pyjamas when he comes back to school!

Mrs Smith's Easter message - keep well, stay safe and hopefully we will all be back together soon. 

Tuesday 25th March: photos

Well done, Alex, for your sporting and science endeavours: growing lettuce and playing table tennis in the sunshine.

Is Alexander doing his school work or creating a global empire from his front room? 

The dog is looking hopeful...

Thursday 26th March 2020

In another universe, we are all going round to Alexander's for a slice of cake!

Keep fit and safe and well, Oak Tree people.
