Hello Year 6

 

Welcome to our new Home Learning page where you will find your learning whilst school is closed.

 

Here are your first set of learning challenges. Have fun completing them!

What age can my child start social networking?

 

As a parent it’s important you know that all social networking platforms (or social networking apps, if on a smartphone) have age limits. Some social networks use technologies that might not be right for some ages, or engage with communities that are made up of people much older than your child.

 

 

For more advice and information visit https://www.internetmatters.org/ or https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/

An important message from Mrs Thompson, our very own reading expert and lover of all books:

 

 Two more weeks to go till summer holidays. Have you made any plans to do anything over the summer?  One thing I will recommend to you is to make sure that you keep reading over the summer period. Here are some facts for you about people who read more which are apparently scientific:

 

1. Reading can help prevent Alzheimer’s.

2. Being a reader means you’re more likely to learn something new every day.

3. People who read are more likely to vote, exercise, and be more cultural.

4. Reading can be therapeutic.

5. Reading enhances your memory

6. Reading actually does make you seem more interesting

7. Reading helps to boost your analytical thinking.

8. Reading expands your vocabulary, so you’ll sound like a genius.

9. Fiction books increase your ability to empathize with others.

10. People who read are more likely to get ahead when it comes to their careers, and life in general.

 

And if these are not good enough reasons to read how about it's a far better was to spend your spare time rather than playing computer games or watching TV.

Make each day your masterpiece

Hi Year 6

 

How are you all?

 

A huge thank you to Melisa, Roda and Alia for emailing us.  It is always so nice to get your emails as we miss you lots.  Melisa has sent in a couple of poems that she said we could share.

 

                                            The Unicorn🦄

 

                                      Once a pretty unicorn was born,

                                   In a big field of sweetcorn.

                                   She loved to play her bass horn,

                                   In the streets of Camborne.

   

                                   Others envied her little horn,

                                   So they were very forlorn.

                                   They made a cup of popcorn,

                                   To throw at the unicorn.

                   

                                   At night everyone began to throw,

                                   At her large glass window.

                                   The unicorn thought it was snow,

                                   And watched the pretend snow show.

 

 

              

                                  Locked in our houses all day,

                                   Home schooling is done right away,

                                   Missing lots of friends and family,

                                   Everyone helping like a superfamily

                                   Toilet paper and soap stashed away,

                                   Cheering for the NHS from our doorway.

 

Thanks so much for these Melisa and well done.

Live your best life

 

The last few months have been very difficult for many of us for many different reasons. Recently my grandma passed away and while it has been a very upsetting time, it has also been lovely to think about the amazing person she was and the things she achieved in her 95 years. 

While we are encouraging you to think about your own achievements this year, I thought you might like to take a look at the article published about my grandma in the Sunday Times today: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/rosalind-mann-obituary-ngc9g576d
Something you might be particularly interested in was her work during WWII where she helped crack codes that intercepted enemy ships! If you take a look at Bletchley Park online there is lots more information about the work done by The Wrens during the war. I’m looking forward to visiting Bletchley Park when it reopens. 

Sunday Times Article

Sunday Times Article 1

As you can probably tell, I’m incredibly proud of my grandma. I’m also extremely proud of YOU, as are all the Year 6 adults, so when you write your report comments, please make sure they are positive and show off your many achievements. 
 

Have a wonderful day,

Miss Grassie

Mental Health Awareness Week

 

This week we will suggest daily activities to help you focus on your own well-being and that of those around you.

 

Today we would like you start by thinking all about yourself. Use the mind map below to explore what makes you tick, things you enjoy doing, goals for the future and what you want from your life.

 

We rarely spend time on true self-reflection, so hopefully this activity will help you to learn more about the wonderful person you are and who we know you will grow up to be. smiley

 Resilience.

 

Someone who is resilient:

  1. Faces challenges and uncertainty with positivity and calmness

  2. Continues to try after experiencing failure

  3. Shows independence and ownership in decisions and actions.

 

Now we would like you to spend some time with your family doing something fun! Choose a board game you all agree on and enjoy playing it together.

 

Delayed Gratification is a way of building resilience.

 

Each player will have to wait until they can go next and try to win the game. Games also provide a good opportunity to practice failure and teach us to continue after (although you might not want to play too many rounds!)

Then please cut it out and take a photo of it. Or, if your parents are happy for your lovely face to be published on our website, you can be photographed holding your bunting. Let's see how long we can get it to be!!

Remember we now have a Year 6 email address and you can contact us directly on year6@sirjohnlillie.lbhf.sch.uk if you have any questions and concerns. Your new secondary schools should also have email addresses that you could contact them on directly, if you wish.

As 6GB know I love to read, especially children's books, so I have a bit of challenge for you.

If you have recently read a good children's book whilst you have been at home, please send in a picture of you with the book so that I can see which ones are worthy of a read.  If you want to email a bit of a blurb about it too that would be fantastic.  Let's see how many books we can read whilst we are at home.

 

I have just started the book 'Who Let the Gods Out' by Maz Evans so I will let you know what it's like once I have finished.

 

Good luck with this challenge and we look forward to seeing the books you will be reading.

 

Take care

Thank you for the reading challenge, Miss. Bates! I have been a very busy reader. I just finished a book yesterday, and started a new one today! I just finished 'The Secret Orphan' and have just started 'The Nightingale'. Both novels are historical fiction books about World War II.

What a great joke at the end too 😄

Science challenge

 

Today you can enjoy being a super scientist from the comfort of your own home!

 

As we have been learning about adaptation, here is a fun experiment you can carry out to see how various species of birds have adapted their beaks to survive in their different habitats.

 

       You will need several items to resemble the different beak types and other items to resemble food. Which foods are easier to pick up with the different tools? Check the worksheet before you begin and make sure you plan it out carefully first.

 

Don't worry, you should be able to find most of the equipment in your kitchens or bathrooms! If you are missing something, be flexible and see if you can find a suitable alternative.

 

Have a look at this informative website about birds and their beaks before completing the experiment: https://www.zooportraits.com/birds-different-beaks-functions/

 

Don't forget to share your results with us by sending them, along with any photos, to ict@sirjohnlillie.lbhf.sch.uk

 

Have lots of fun experimenting! Tweet tweet!

Results worksheet (or you can make your own!)

Extra challenge

 

Can you use the information on the website (https://www.zooportraits.com/birds-different-beaks-functions/#What_are_the_different_types_of_beaks) to match the items you used in your experiment to the different types of beaks birds may have? Why have their beaks adapted in this way? Which foods are they able to eat easily?

 

Listed below are the items you were using to resemble the different beaks. Or maybe you used some other items you had around the house. Please share your findings.

 

Chopsticks
Spoons

Geography: Map skills

 

Draw a detailed map of a room in your house, as though you are looking at the room from the ceiling. This is quite tricky, so take your time and make sure you don’t make your map too small or it will be difficult to add details. Include things like furniture, rugs and doors. Here is an example:

 

Map of bedroom with key

Map of bedroom with key 1

 

Now, hide an object (treasure!) in the room and mark an X on the map. See if someone else can use your map to find the hidden object! How easily did they find the object? Was your map detailed enough to help them? How could you have improved it? Swap roles and let someone else hide an object – can you find it using your map?

 

Challenge - Want to make a super treasure hunt? Make a map of the whole house!

Example map of a flat or floor of house - Don't forget to include a key!

Example map of a flat or floor of house - Don't forget to include a key! 1
Don't forget to email us a photo of any maps you are particularly proud of. Have lots of fun treasure hunting!
