Year 6 Home learning

Welcome to the Year 6 Home learning Page!

It’s such a shame we can’t see you right now because we had to close the school for a while. We would really like to stay in touch with you and want you to keep working hard. Each week, on this page, you will find new learning activities for you to complete at home. Try and do as many as you can-we know you can do it! Also, don’t forget to look on the ‘Homework Websites’ page for lots more fun, learning websites.

Keep working hard, we are proud of you!

 

Ms Mercer, Mr Grochowski and Mr Richardson

The Year 6 Team

Home Learning w/c 20th July

Hello everyone!  This will be the last update for a while as it's almost the summer holidays.  Thank you to everyone who has been working hard during the lockdown period and while you have not been able to come to school as normal.  We wish you all the very best of luck for secondary school and hope that when things are back to normal, you'll pop in to visit us.

 

This week we have attached letters from each member of staff to welcome their new pupils.  If you have collected your school report, you'll know who your new teacher will be.  So if you'll be year 6 in September,  why not read your new teacher's letter and see what you can do over the summer to help get ready for coming back.

 

If you have not collected your school report, you still have time to do so.  They can be collected from Bobbersmill before the end of term, otherwise they will be given out when you return in September.

 

Take care over the summer and relax, making sure you are ready for hard work in the autumn term.

Miss Mercer, Mr Grochowski and Mr Richardson

Home Learning w/c 13th July

Hello Year 6, 

Hope you are enjoying the book study so far… you can send pictures of any completed work to your teachers via the e-mail address year6@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk.

This week’s work is below.  Try to complete as much of it as you can – we will try to label worksheets as ‘circle’, ‘triangle’ and ‘square’ so you can find the work for your level.  Remember you can send messages and/or copies of your work to your teachers using year6@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk .

 

Saying Goodbye

Keep an eye open for a message from school about when you can come to say goodbye to your teachers and collect your books and leavers' gifts.  We need to give you a specific time slot, to ensure we keep up social distancing.

 

Secondary School

We have also included a link to the BBC's transition materials to help you on the move to secondary school.  Why not take a look. It will help to explain what it will be like and answer some of the questions you may have.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zh4wy9q/starting-secondary-school/1

 

Maths

The work is split into 3 lessons, with challenges.  Try to do them in order.

Lesson 1 – Finding 10% and 5%

Lesson 2 – Finding 1%

Lesson 3 – Reasoning questions

 

Book Study – Journey

This is a writing and a creative task.  Before starting it, read the rest of the Journey story by looking at the Journey book final part.ppt.  You are going to write and illustrate a leaflet to advertise the worlds in Journey.  Open the Persuasive writing task document and it will explain further. To complete this task, with beautiful illustrations, it will take several hours so that’s why it’s the only Journey task for this week.

 

Reading

There are two comprehensions, each with a word crunch.  One is for circles and the other for triangles and squares; however, there is nothing to stop you from having a go at both of them.  They are not linked to Journey, so you can complete these at any time.

 

Spellings

You have now had all of the spelling words for year 6.  Why not look back and revise words from previous weeks – they are still on the website. 

Home Learning w/c 6th July

Hello Year 6, 

Hope you are enjoying the book study so far… you can send pictures of any completed work to your teachers via the e-mail address year6@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk.

 

Well done to Hamza for sending in your email showing how to plant a mango seed. He laid it out step by step explaining every detail of how to make the huge seed germinate. Over lockdown, he has turned into a such a keen gardener and it obviously brings him a lot of joy. Has anyone else ever tried planting the seeds from fruit? When I was your age, I planted some apple pips in a plant pot. With a lot of patience and care, it did grow into a huge plant which was eventually planted in the garden. It was such an achievement - give it a go!  Also, I loved his lantern design- well done! Has anyone tried to ‘make’ a lantern? I’d love to see them.  Miss Mercer

 

Mr Richardson would like to say a huge thank you to Subhan for the Maths work that he sent in this week. It's great to see that you are still practising your decimal subtraction in preparation for secondary school. Well done!

 

This week’s work is below.  Try to complete as much of it as you can – we will try to label worksheets as ‘circle’, ‘triangle’ and ‘square’ so you can find the work for your level.  Remember you can send messages and/or copies of your work to your teachers using year6@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk .

 

Maths

The work is split into 4 lessons.  Try to do them in order.

Lesson 1 – Divide by 1 digit

Lesson 2 – Divide by 1 digit reasoning

Lesson 3 – Divide by 2 digits including reasoning

Lesson 4 – Murder Mystery.  This will take a few sessions to complete.  Read the task information and then complete each clue to identify ‘whodunnit’ from the list of suspects.  You will use the 4 operations to solve the clues as well as knowledge of prime numbers.

Fun maths – Mrs Shipman has added an activity for her group, but anyone can do it.

 

Book Study – Journey

1st lesson – Falling.  Look at the image where the girl is in the boat and she is going to fall.  What will she draw to stop her from crashing to the ground?  Use your imagination and draw some ideas.  When you have drawn your ideas, open the Journey book scan powerpoint file and see what she actually drew.

2nd lesson – the Journey book powerpoint continues the story, look at this and then use the Writing bird catcher documents to help you with the writing task.  It is all about using persuasive language and semi-colons and colons in an advert for a bird catcher.

 

Reading

There are two comprehensions, each with a word crunch.  One is for circles and the other for triangles and squares; however, there is nothing to stop you from having a go at both of them.  They are not linked to Journey, so you can complete these at any time.

 

Creative task

When you look at the Journey book, you will see an impressive flying machine.  Your creative task this week is to design your own.  The task is explained in one document and there are several others filled with ideas to help your imagination run free! 

 

Spellings

You have now had all of the spelling words for year 6.  Why not look back and revise words from previous weeks – they are still on the website. 

Home Learning w/c 29th June

Hello Year 6, 

Rather than tell you what we have been busy doing, we are going to focus on giving a ‘shout out’ to those who have sent work into school, either in person or via the e-mail address year6@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk.

I would like to say a huge well done to Kamron, who has been working extremely hard on his times tables recently and is now the year 6 leader on Timestable Rockstars! I wonder if anyone is going to challenge him for the title? Also, thank you to Marvis who has sent in some excellent art work recently - it's great to see you challenging yourself and continuing to develop your skills! Finally, thank you yet again to Hajrah for the super writing, spellings and  word search - You and Rayan have certainly been the most consistent at sending in work. Well done 6R!

Take care and I hope to see you all soon. If you are not planning to return to school before the summer holidays, please ensure that you come to visit us when everything goes back to normal. 

Mr Richardson

 

Thanks to Muzammil for sending work into me.  It was great to see you still working hard.

Mr Grochowski.

 

Nobody sent me anything this week – come on 6M!  I’d love to see your work.

Miss Mercer

 

This week’s work is below.  Try to complete as much of it as you can – we will try to label worksheets as ‘circle’, ‘triangle’ and ‘square’ so you can find the work for your level.  Remember you can send messages and/or copies of your work to your teachers using year6@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk .

Maths

Again, the work is split into 4 lessons.  Try to do them in order.

Lesson 1 – column subtraction practice

Lessons 2 and 3 – subtraction reasoning questions

Lesson 4 – reasoning about length.  This will allow you to practise unit of measure conversions. 

Fun maths – Mrs Shipman has added an activity for her group, but anyone can do it.

 

Book Study – Journey

Writing

1st lesson – Look at the book scans up to where the girl enters the forest, then complete the descriptive writing tasks.  There are two to complete.

2nd lesson – Look at the remaining pages of the book, then do the descriptive writing based on the girl’s entry to the city.

Reading

This week’s whole class reading activity is based on an image from Journey.  This should be completed after the writing activities.

Creative task

You will see that the forest has some beautiful lanterns hanging from the trees.  You can have a go at making your own.  We have attached instructions on how you can do it. 

Spellings

You have now had all of the spelling words for year 6.  Why not look back and revise words from previous weeks – they are still on the website. 

 

Another activity you might like to do is the Black Lives Matter 500 words writing competition being organised by Virgin Radio https://500words.me/  Follow the link for the full details.

Home Learning w/c 22nd June

Hello Year 6, 

From this week, the work we send home will be a little different.  Each week we will upload work to the web site that we have been using to teach the year 6 children who have been in school.  As before, where possible we will provide answers too.  Try to complete as much of it as you can – we will try to label worksheets as ‘circle’, ‘triangle’ and ‘square’ so you can find the work for your level.  Remember you can send messages and/or copies of your work to your teachers using year6@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk .

There are also weekly messages from your teachers.

Maths

Each week will be split into 4 lessons.  Try to do them in order.

Lesson 1 – questions on the 4 operations

Lessons 2 and 3 – practise the long method of multiplication and apply it to reasoning and word problems

Lesson 4 – This is a reasoning activity which you can do at any time.  Within the document there are 3 separate tasks, the first is the easiest and then they get progressively harder.

Fun maths – Mrs Shipman has added an activity for her group, but anyone can do it.

 

Reading

An extract from Animal Farm by George Orwell has been chosen for the whole class reading text. First, there is a word crunch.  If you don’t have a paper dictionary, you can always use an online one instead to check the meaning of words you don’t know.  Then, choose a set of questions to answer. 

 

Book Study – Journey

We decided to do a book study for the other lessons.  It will be a mixture of English and afternoon-style work based on the book.

This week we are just looking at the first page of the book.

Lesson 1 – Analyse the picture.  Can you see the girl?  How is she feeling?  How do you know?  What evidence is there in the picture?  Repeat this for the other characters in the picture.

Lesson 2 – Write a diary.  Choose one of the characters and put yourself in their shoes.  Write a diary entry from their point of view.  We suggest 4 paragraphs – one for each of the characters.

 

Spellings

This is the last of the normal spelling lists – Summer 10.

Home Learning w/c 15th June

Hello year 6! I hope that you are all well. As many of you are not yet returning to school, it is really important that you continue to challenge yourself in preparation for secondary school.

Here are your challenges for this week. Do your best and remember to email the year 6 team to show us your fantastic efforts - year6@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk

 

If you are not planning to return to school before the summer holidays, can you please return any reading books that you have borrowed.  Please try to avoid the start and end of the day, when reception and the playground will be busiest.  And if you are coming back, please bring them with you. Thank you.

Mr Richardson, Mr Grochowski and Miss Mercer

Writing

This week you will be looking into the spooky ‘Mysteries of Harris Burdick’. After reading the mysterious back story and viewing the pictures, choose your favourite image and begin to plan a piece of writing by answering the questions attached to each one. This will help you to add detail to your writing and really bring it to life! We are really looking forward to reading your finished stories!

Spelling

week 9 of the Summer spellings for you to learn and practise.

Grammar

For grammar you will be learning about coordinating conjunctions. Check out the web link below and then have a go at the question sheet. There is also a powerpoint presentation with helpful information if you are finding it difficult.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/z9wvqhv

Reading

This week’s reading challenge comes in the form of an interactive powerpoint presentation. Read through the slides and answer all of the questions. Remember to read each passage carefully and to use you inference skills to find clues - this will provide you with information that isn’t explicitly in the text.

Also, the author of Harry Potter - J.K. Rowling – has recently released her latest children’s book ‘The Ikabog’ for free online to help children who are stuck at home during lockdown to keep on reading. You can find the whole thing by clicking the following link. Enjoy!

https://www.theickabog.com/king-fred-the-fearless/

Hi there year 6. This week, you can challenge your mathematical brains with some work on angles. Work through the powerpoint then have a go at the questions on angles in a triangle and other shapes. Once completed try the reasoning challenges.

 

Mrs Shipman has also provided some maths for her group - fun maths.football.doc.

English

 

We have attached a reading activity on sharks. Read the text carefully; however, remember to use a dictionary (use an online one if you need to) to look up some of that trickier vocabulary - just like we do at school with our Word Crunch. Then have a go at the questions. You will find the answers attached below to see how you got on.

 

For grammar, there is a powerpoint to view on subject and object. Read this and then have a go at the questions.

We hope to see you all again soon.  In the meantime, keep busy and stay safe.

Mrs Broughton

Hello again year 6,

We hope you are still getting on alright and are keeping yourselves busy as another week goes by. Here is this week’s work for you to have a go it!

Writing

For English this week, we’d like you to try this ‘Being Big’ writing challenge. Your task is to use the picture and story starter to inspire you to write your own narrative story – using either the 1st or 3rd person. Before you start, complete the ‘question time’, ‘sentence challenge’ and ‘sick sentences’ slides in order to give you lots of fantastic ideas, impressive vocabulary and interesting sentences to help you with your writing. We look forward to reading your efforts!

Reading

For reading there are two tasks. One is based on ‘Stormbreaker’ by Anthony Horrowitz as we know lots of you are familiar with this series of books. You have to read the extract and then answer the questions using context to work out unfamiliar words.

We’ve also included a reading comprehension with an ‘Ancient Egypt’ theme – about Howard Carter’s discovery of the ancient tomb of Tutankhamun.  Make sure you choose the difficulty level to match your reading group – 1 star = circles, 2 star = triangles and 3 star = squares.

Grammar

As you have not been in school for so long, we thought that you may have been using much more slang than usual! As a result we thought it would be a good idea for you to practise using and identifying ‘Standard English’.

First read this…

https://www.theschoolrun.com/what-is-standard-english

…then have a go at the ‘Recognising Standard English’ worksheet. Once you are feeling confident, try the SATs grammar questions for an extra challenge!

Maths

For Maths the challenge is to calculate the missing angles of triangles. There is a powerpoint presentation to show you how to do this and two worksheets to have a go at.

We have also included another reasoning SATs paper for you to complete – along with the answer sheet.

Topic

To continue our ‘Ancient Egypt’ topic, we have added the ‘Time raider’s activity pack’. This contain lots of fun and interesting activities for you to try – just choose which ones you would like to do!

Good luck, take care and keep learning!

Mr Richardson, Mr Grochowski & Miss Mercer

Easter Competition Entries

This one looks great... how I wish I was lying on a beach, relaxing in the sunshine with a good book. 

Home Learning w/c 6th April 2020

Hello year 6,

Below is a message from teachers, who are missing you very much, news about our Easter 'competition', links to some fun ideas and some homework if you want to keep your learning going over the Easter period.

 

Easter 'Competition'
Although we're not in school, we'd still like our Easter 'competitions' to go ahead. However, this year they will just be for fun. 

You can create an Easter bonnet, Easter scene or decorate an egg using whatever you have available at home - remember, don't go shopping; stay safe!

You can send us photos of your Easter creations to info@berridge.nottingham.sch.uk

As all photographs will be uploaded to the website, only include yourself in the picture if your parents are happy for you to be shown.  Make sure your name and class are included in the email; your name will not be put on the website. 

Have fun!
 

Hello Year 6...

We hope you are all well and managing to keep your minds and bodies fit and active during your time away from school.  We are missing you all very much so it is brilliant to be able to keep in touch through our school website. We have added some fun Easter activities and interesting websites with great ideas for you to have a go at. Thank you for continuing to complete your work despite not being at school – we are very proud of your hard work and dedication to your learning. All of your teachers hope you have a fantastic Easter and hope to see you all very soon.  

 

P.S. Mr Grochowski says that he was in 6G’s classroom yesterday and it felt so lonely and empty without you. He is missing you all and hopes things get back to normal as soon as possible!

 

Miss Mercer is missing having an audience to sing to. She says it’s not the same singing to an empty classroom. She misses you so much and is looking forward to the day that she can see your cheery faces and hear all about what you’ve been up to!

 

Mr Richardson says that he is missing your energy, ideas, creativity and tik-tok dances! For some reason his son doesn’t find his (obviously hilariously funny) jokes as amusing as you all clearly did so he is spending most of his time laughing at himself – I guess some things never change!

Easter work if you'd like to do some:

I hope you are all keeping safe and well and busy with your Maths. It would be really good if you could  try to learn your tables by heart. You might also try lots of the online Maths games 
 
All the very best to you all

Home Learning w/c 30th March 2020

 

Hello Year 6.  Here is your home learning for this week.

Reading:

 

Spellings:

3 lists from Spring and Summer list 1

Maths:

2017 Arithmetic paper

Topic - Egyptians

Using the internet, research the customs and traditions which were used when a Pharaoh died.

1/ You will need to find out about the mummification process which happened beforehand – what was done with the organs?

2/ Research the whole ritual of the funeral e.g.

  • What happened outside the tomb?
  • How was the Pharaoh’s body brought to the site?
  • What happened in the procession with priests?
  • What ceremony was performed on the Pharaoh before he entered the tomb and why?
  • What else went into the tomb with the Pharaoh? Why were these things put with him?
  • Who was there to mourn the Pharaoh’s death?

 

This research will be used in the next Home Learning Challenge so dig deep to find all those facts.
