Yr 6 Daily Tasks Week Beginning 18 May
The last day of term was always one of my favourite days - NO! Not because we were getting a break from all of you (obviously not!) But because it was always a day to consolidate and celebrate everything we had learned throughout the term. It feels odd, therefore, not to be doing this.
However, Mr Taylor, Mrs Hendy and I want to say a massive, huge, megalithic, phantasmagorical "well done" to each and every one of you.
Throughout this term, you have all shown the meaning of growth mindset, flexibility and adaptability with your learning, and tons of resilience; to have completed your first full term in lockdown!
Finishing off our Mental Health Awareness Week, please find below two tasks. The first is challenging you to find the positives in lockdown - which, at first, may seem hard - and yet, I bet that lots of you have been improving your skills, spending more time on your hobbies, or enjoying the extra time you have with your loved ones.
The second task is getting you to look ahead. Using your art & design skills, create a jar that you can then write, fold and place things that you are really looking forward to - perfect for the situation we find ourselves in!
I have also attached a Friday Maths Challenge sheet below. Start on question 3 and see how many you can do!
This is just for fun and the idea is that it forces you to write, so you are not held back by overthinking.

We would like to wish you a wonderful half term, whatever you get up to!
If you get desperate for more learning then check out the website for the Big Plate, Small Plate challenge. You can complete as much of this as you like over half term.
All the best!

This week is is Mental Health Awareness Week. The timing couldn't be more perfect.
We know that you have all been experiencing a wide range of emotions because of the situation that we are in! But it is important to remember that feeling emotions is what makes us human! (Otherwise you'd be some sort of robot).
This year the theme is "kindness", which is such a lovely thing for us all to think about.
With this in mind, I want you all to do at least one kind thing for someone else this week. Think about how amazing that person will feel to have something kind done for them. Now this could be as simple as making them a drink, washing up after yourself, helping around the house or making them a card just to say how much you appreciate them.
We'd love to hear any ideas that you have...and, once completed, the reaction of the "kindness recipient".
There is also a short clip below to remind you of the amazing film (which I absolutely love!) Inside Out. This is just to remind you that each of us experiences these same emotions...and because the clip is funny,
There's a Powerpoint below about positive thinking and "growth mindset", which we are all so familiar with but it is always good to revise what we've previously learnt.
As today would usually be a Music and Art day, please check those sections of the website for additional tasks.
Oh and I have also attached a picture with the answers for Monday's "can you name the chocolate bar" game.
Have a great day!
Here's your home learning for today:
We hope you enjoyed the story, and that you were able to take something away from it - after all, the story is based on a Year 6 child going through some familiar things.
With that said, for your writing portion of the lesson, we would like for you to write a book review.
You can use any structure you like. Tell us what you liked, what you think might be improved, why someone else may enjoy this book...or anything else that you think would be useful in a review.
We are geographers: Today you are going to learn all about land use in the UK. Go through the Powerpoint and then complete the worksheet...we promise, "land use" actually a lot more interesting than it sounds!
There is also a fun little picture quiz for you to have a go at below. Can you name the chocolate bar just from looking at a cross section? (Some of the chocolate bars might be unfamiliar because they are too old).
Mrs Hendy has posted some additional tasks below so check those out.
Have a lovely day - and as always, post anything to Seesaw that you would like to share.
Monday 18th May
Hello From Mrs Hendy
Beating the Monday Blues…At times we all feel a little anxious, tired or sad, especially at the moment with what is happening all around us. It’s perfectly normal to be feeling these types of emotions.
Try to be aware, or mindful of your feelings, and maybe try some breathing techniques. Below is a short clip from Newsround on Mindfulness. Read the article under the video and click on the top tips at the bottom of the page.
Here is a mindfulness breathing exercise:

When we read we are learning new words (vocabulary) and their meanings all the time. By improving your vocabulary, you will have a better understanding of the English language and be able to write much more interesting stories.
