Welcome to Year 6

Week beginning 29th June 2020

There are only 3 weeks left of term! Which means that it is time to start preparing for secondary school. This week I have put some tasks together that will help you to think about the big changes ahead.

Week Beginning 22nd June 2020

Hello Class 6, in the links above (home learning additional worksheets) are some new home learning activities for you to be getting on with. I hope you are all okay! Don't forget to use the email address below if you need anything at all! From Mrs Barron :) 

CLOSURE ADDITIONAL TASKS - Updates every Monday during closure, so make sure you check back.

Email me your news, work, questions and thoughts at s.teacher@sundridge.bham.sch.uk

Hello everyone! 

We are now getting everything ready for you, so that we can welcome you back shortly. Those of you returning will be doing work to prepare you for your move into Year 7, a study of the famous poem 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes and designing a theme park in maths. We will also be doing lots of extra sport, art and some creative work in history. I'm hoping to prepare a Leavers' Show too, using video.

If you are not returning yet, don't worry. Adapted versions of all classwork will be posted on this page. Please email in a photo or scan of the assignments that I have listed in green and I will provide feedback.  You can do this by taking a photo of the work and emailing the photo as an attachment to s.teacher@sundridge.bham.sch.uk or by scanning it into a printer. If the work is on a computer or tablet, simply attach as an email attachment. This is good practice for Secondary School! 

NEWLY ADDED FOR WEEK BEGINNING 15.6.20

  • Watch this animation of the story of The Highwayman - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1OVqAANwJE. Complete a patterns, puzzles, likes and dislikes grid (What do you notice, like, dislike, find confusing?) for your initial thoughts.
  • Find out about the movement known as 'Black Lives Matter.' Create one of the following: an anti-racism poster, a biography of a person of colour who has had an impact on the world (e.g. Martin Luther King Jr), or create a newspaper report.
  • Maths-  White Rose Maths links are above. 
  • Prepare a short memory, message or letter for the Leavers' Video. It could be a farewell message, poem, thank you or funny memory. You could write this down and email it to me for inclusion, or video yourself and send it to the email address: s.teacher@sundridge.bham.sch.uk 
  • Continue to find out as much as you can about your new school. What clubs might you join? Who is the head of Year 7?What are the rules for uniform/make-up/mobile phones?

CLOSURE ASSIGNMENTS - PAST WEEKS:

1.6.20/8.6.20

  • Visit your new school's website. Have a good look around. Please write 5-10 questions that you would like to know the answers to. I will endeavour to find out the answers for you. Email them to me please.
  • Have a Times Table Rockstars session. Can you improve your position on the leader board? Currently Year 5 are winning!
  • Visit NRICH. This website has fun and challenging maths puzzles that really get you thinking! I'd like you to do the 2 tasks on the following 2 links please: https://nrich.maths.org/1130 and https://nrich.maths.org/14314. There are many more to try if you love maths as much as me!
  • Finally, write a letter to yourself! Write to your 40 year old self to tell them all about the Covid-19 Lockdown of 2020. What was it like? How did you feel? What were the positives and negatives of the experience. 

18.5.20

  • Catch up week - Please complete 4 items from previous weeks that you have not yet done.

11.5.20

  • Silly SATS - I have created some SATs papers to mark the week you should have done your real SATs, but these are a bit of fun and in parts a bit silly too! Please click on each link ABOVE to access the file. No need to print anything - a pencil and paper is all you need.

4.5.20

  • BBC Bitesize have released a whole new home learning section that links to resources we use in class such as White Rose Maths and Twinkl. Full lessons with videos and resources (with celebrities presenting) can be found at:   https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize

  • Continue your maths learning with White Rose. If you did the previous 2 weeks, then this link will be where you are up to now. You can back track if you need to.  https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/
  • Oak National Academy- free online lessons with videos and quizzes for you. This website marks your answers too! https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/year-6/
  • Several parents have requested work that can be done without a computer and printer. There are 3 things I would like you to do this week: 1. Ask family members about the toys or games that they played with when they were little. Create a toy timeline, with examples of toys/games from 1950 to 2020. How have toys and games changed over the years? 2. For Geography, find out about your local area. Can you create a map to show how you will travel to your new school? 3. Watch an age-appropriate documentary on Netflix, BBC iPlayer or on the TV. It could be about animals, places, the environment, science or technology.  Write down 5 things that you have learnt and 2 things you would like to know more about. Documentaries might not be your thing, but there are some really interesting ones. On CBBC, 'My Life' is a great series exploring the lives of children going through difficult or interesting times. BBC iPlayer also has great kids' shows like 'Deadly 60', 'Horrible Histories' and 'All Over The Place'. On Netflix, I recommend 'Brain Child', 'Our Planet', 'Absurd! Planet' and 'The Universe' to name but a few!

Mrs Barron x

Welcome to the Year 6 page! I am the class teacher for Year 6 and my name is Mrs Barron. We are very lucky as we have a wonderful teaching assistant:Mr Thomson. Miss Grainger also helps us with our Maths and English. We also work closely with other staff members, especially in the run up to SATS.

 Year 6 provides a happy learning environment where all children are encouraged, engaged and challenged in their learning in order to reach their full potential.

Our aim is to give each child the stability and enrichment they need to become well rounded individuals who are well prepared for the forthcoming challenges of Secondary School and to be Secondary ready.

Year 6 is a very important year as the children prepare for their end of Key Stage SATs.  In order to support children and parents we provide Inspire style workshops, inviting parents to work with their children to gain insight into the expectations made of the children.  

Our classroom is a stimulating environment which motivates children to work hard and achieve highly whilst having fun. We strive to provide the children with a broad, balanced and creative curriculum catering to the needs of all children.

Homework : The recommended time for homework for Year 6 is 2.5 hours per week.  Homework is set each half term, with children choosing at least 12 activities from a grid with 20 tasks. Year 6 are encouraged to reflect on their learning in their Learning Logs and, later in the academic year, to use revision materials to support preparation for SATs Assessments.

 All pupils in Year 6 will receive packs of practise SATs papers following the Inspire Workshops and provide a focus for revision through the Spring Term. There is also an option to buy revision workbooks at a discounted price.

Curriculum: During the year, we will be working hard to practise for our SATS. However, we also enjoy some interesting creative curriculum topics. We will be learning about Rainforests and rivers; World War II; A Victorian Birmingham; Britain since 1945 and Inventions, Ideas and Industry. We will be playing the tin whistle in music; creating masterpieces in Art and designing and running an Enterprise Project. Class 6 will learn skills in tag rugby, tennis, swimming, cricket/rounders, dance and gym. In science, we will learn about how living things are classified; genetics and inheritance; fossils and dinosaurs; electricity; light and the human body. We also work hard to ensure that the children are ready for the big transition to secondary school, and are prepared for puberty too.

Expectations and behaviour: I expect all children to be in correct uniform and footwear. Please ensure that hair accessories and jewellery follow school rules. PE is on a Wednesday. In Year 6, children need a full PE kit. We often go outside, so a plain tracksuit is ideal in the winter. I expect all clothing to be named.

The children have designed their own class rules. These are:

READY:  

We always try our best.

We bring the right equipment and clothing to school.

We follow instructions quickly.

We prioritise learning in lesson time.

RESPECTFUL:

We listen to the person who is meant to be speaking.

We look after our own and other people's property.

We respect the beliefs and feelings of others.

We demonstrate good manners.

We choose the right vocabulary.

SAFE:

We move around class and school sensibly.

We use equipment correctly, as instructed.

We ask for help if needed.

We find ways to solve problems.

 Year 6 TARGETS: Please see the Curriculum Targets page.

 Year 6 is a very important year, where the foundations for Secondary school are laid. Please encourage good attendance and support with homework. I will be running workshops to support with SATS. During September, it is important to visit the Secondary Schools' Open Evenings.  Many Year 6 pupils start being more independent in this final year. Please call or pop in if you have any concerns; I cannot help if I don't know about the worry.

Please do sent a note or phone in if your child is walking home without an adult. I cannot send them home without you unless I have been informed first. Many thanks, Mrs Barron.
