Year 6 - Worbarrow

Home Learning

 

Dear Children, 

We hope you’re enjoying the sunshine! (And also keeping your room tidy...)  

We may not be seeing each other for a while, but it doesn’t mean we can’t share our adventures and learning journey.  We shall try to post new links when we can that may help you work creatively at home, or just keep you interested!  

Please send us photos of anything fabulous you draw/write/create via email and if you are happy for us to publish it on our class page on the website - we miss not seeing you at school. If there is anything learning-related you would like to ask us, email us – also with any exciting news you may have!  

I am starting those mystery and adventure stories I’ve promising to write the whole year – I can’t wait for you to read them, and Mrs. Rimmer is busy with mindfulness colouring and catching up on all the books she has always wanted to read. 

Remember to be kind to yourself and your families – don't stress about anything and enjoy home learning. Creative and outdoor play is still learning too. (Playing back-to-back video games isn’t, but we’ll let your parents have that battle!) 

Keep safe and keep in contact, 

Mrs. Collins and Mrs. Rimmer  

 

 

SUMMER TERM

Hello Year 6!

 

Welcome back to the Summer Term. I hope you have had a lovely Easter break and are raring to get stuck back into your creative home learning.

 

I have been having a lovely time with with my little one: keeping him busy in the garden, baking Easter treats and getting creative with the paints, chalks, crayons and foam! It has been so lovely to see your creative work from home. Keep sending us your emails with any photos you would like us to share on the website. I have also added a couple of video clips of myself reading some books – just click on the class videos link above. When I get a free moment, I have been sitting down in the sun with a cup of tea and good book!

 

I hope you are all well, staying safe and managed to enjoy the sunshine when it was around! I miss you all and miss our Wednesday afternoons and Thursdays together. Here is hoping we will be able to see you all again soon.

 

Keep being creative, keep smiling and keep in contact. Hopefully you have all managed to pick up your new learning packs but I am also setting tasks on TTRockstars and Purple Mash if you want some online learning – so make sure you log in! Any queries, just give us an email.

 

Take care,

 

Mrs Rimmer

Dearest Year Six, 

 

Happy Summer Term! I hope you are all well and relaxing. 

 

Thank you for all the lovely work you have been sending us; I am very impressed standards have not slipped. It was lovely to talk to lots of you last week and to hear about the adventures you have been having. There's a video of me saying 'Hi!' on the class photo page too. 

 

I have been walking the dog by the sea most days, creating a disco in the kitchen, turning fruit and vegetables into new pets (can you spot Pip and Mickey, our new pet avocados?), camping in the garden, teaching goblins and drinking plenty of tea, obvs! 

 

Please keep sending us photos of you doing something exciting/fabulous pieces of work you've completed and hopefully we'll see each other SOON. 

 

Listen to the birdsong, watch nature flourish and be kind. 

 

Mrs Collins x 

 

PS. Top book recommendation: Viper's Daughter by Michelle Paver: it's the seventh in the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness (Wolf Brother) series, and one of the best!

Hello! 

Over Easter I have been sit on lawn mower racing - there were so many laughs, crashing into bushes and poles! 

I'm still enjoying it even on a rainy day, there are greenhouse jobs to do and lots of baking bread and cakes! I do miss you all dearly. Even though we are not at school there are still so many life skills to learn from your time at home.

 

Love from 

 

Mrs Mabey

Wecome to Worbarrow Class (Year 6). Mrs. Collins will be in class Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Wednesday morning, and Mrs Rimmer will be in class every Wednesday afternoon and Thursday.

We welcome parents and family members into the Worbarrow classroom Friday mornings from 8:45-9:00 to look at what the children have been learning at school. This is a lovely opportunity to look at books, the writing wall and displays with your child.

In the Autumn term, we were busy learning about The Golden Age of Antarctic Exploration. We thoroughly enjoyed immersing ourselves in our class texts: Skellig by David Almond and Wonder by JR Palacio. During our PE lessons, the children developed their football and rugby skills and demonstrated their multi-skill abilities in a class competition at the end of the term. We worked hard during our music lessons to learn to play recorders, preparing for what was a fantastic performance in the Christmas concert!

P.E.

Your child will have P.E. lessons on Tuesday and Wednesday every week. Please can the children have their kit in school every day (school PE shirt and shorts, socks and trainers, tracksuits for outside) as there may be chances throughout the week to participate in sports activities both inside and outside. Please remember that long hair needs to be tied up and ear-rings removed.

Water and snacks

We would ask that you provide your child with a named water bottle, this way pupils have access to water all day. Please include a healthy snack in your child’s lunch box if they need something to keep them going until lunch. If you would like your child to have milk please contact the office for the appropriate forms.

Homework

Homework will be sent home on a Thursday in your child’s homework folder and is due in on the following Wednesday. It will alternate between an English task and a Maths task, with the occasional punctuation or grammar task to consolidate skills learnt in class that week. The children will earn a sticker on their smiley chart for completing their homework.

Spellings

The children will be following the ‘Big Spellings’ scheme and throughout the year they will be assessed to determine which word list they will be given. The word lists will be stuck into their spelling books every Monday to learn. Every morning at school they will complete different activities using these words and then tested on a Friday.

Reading

Now the children are in KS2 they will be responsible for changing their own reading book from the correct colour code/appropriate level. They will all take part in guided reading sessions each week and be heard individually by an adult as frequently as possible. Reading at home aloud to an adult is very important for developing their fluency, vocabulary and comprehension skills. Every Monday, the children will earn a sticker on their smiley chart if an adult signs to confirm they have read at home at least 3 times the previous week.
