Home Learning - Summer 2 Week 7

posted 12 Jul 2020, 12:41 by Oliver Mills

Hello,

Please find attached some suggested activities for the week commencing 13.7.20, the last week of the school year. This week is different from previous weeks in that these resources will only be needed for those children not attending transition week in school; a less structured approach to this week's home learning has been taken to reflect this. 

Maths
A week's worth of maths lessons can be found here.

Reading Comprehension
Two reading comprehension activities with answers for self-assessment can be found here and here

Creative Writing
A creative writing activity for this week can be found here

Spellings
This week's spellings are as follows

Art
An art project taking inspiration from famous works can be found here

Mrs Dungworth's Maths Corner
Well done to Willow and Anya for being, at time of writing, the only people to solve the incredibly hard maths problem from last week and for officially, according to Einstein, being in the top 2% of people in the world for mathematical skill. I will post the solution at the end of this week to give people who have attended transition a  chance to respond. 

Here's a maths riddle for this week:

"A princess is as old as the prince will be when the princess is twice as old as the prince was when the princess age was half the sum of their present age."

Which of the following could be true?
A - The prince is 20 and the princess is 30
B - The prince is 40 and the princess is 30
C - The prince is 30 and the princess is 40
D - The prince is 30 and the princess is 20
E - They are both the same age

Home Learning - Summer 2 Week 6

posted 4 Jul 2020, 06:11 by Oliver Mills

Hello, please find below the home learning timetable for week commencing 6th July. 

As groups of Year 6 children are attending transition week in school at different times over the rest of the term, it will be necessary for pupils to go back a week when starting home learning again after your transition week - this will ensure that you pick up where you left off and do not miss a week of lessons.

If you are attending transition week in school, this should be your last week of home learning before summer holidays.

If you are not attending a transition week in school, additional lessons and projects will provided for next week as part of a slimmed-down timetable.

Home Learning - Summer 2 Week 5

posted 28 Jun 2020, 12:22 by Oliver Mills

Hello, please find below the home learning timetable for week commencing 29th June. 

As groups of Year 6 children are attending transition week in school at different times over the rest of the term, it will be necessary for pupils to go to the preceding week's timetable when starting home learning again after your transition week - this will ensure that you pick up where you left off and do not miss a week of lessons.

All our long-term projects will be concluded in the second-to-last week of term, so skipping back a week will not lead to pupils running out of time and not completing projects. 

If you are not attending a transition week in school, just continue accessing home learning as normal. Home learning will be provided for the last week of term for children not attending a transition week and will consist of stand-alone projects which will start and finish in that week.

You will find a lot of Book Study and Computing on the timetable this week as we try to conclude these units of work before the end of term!
