Good morning 6J,

Well done for another excellent day yesterday. You seem to be doing really well with the ratio work in maths. Do make sure to follow the link to watch the videos if you can. The videos will help you with the worksheets.

Four new assignments will be posted on Google Classroom today:

  • English – Letter Writing. Read the instructions carefully: only write the first paragraph and don’t hand it in yet!
  • Maths – Ratio Lesson 3, introducing the ratio symbol.
  • Topic – Coding, Hour of Code challenge. Choose your challenge and see how far you can get! (Due tomorrow)
  • Topic – Draw with Rob, aliens. (Due tomorrow)

Tomorrow, two more assignments will be posted:

  • English – Letter Writing (writing the next part of the letter).
  • Maths – Ratio Lesson 4, Calculating Ratio.

At school yesterday, we started making sock monkeys. This was really fun and all we needed was an old pair of socks, a needle and thread and something to stuff the monkeys with (we used out-of-date bandages!). If you’d like to have a go at doing this, use the template and the link below to find out how!

Mrs Sykes’ sock monkey so far – he just needs arms, a tail and maybe a smile!

Have a great day everyone!

This week has been rather unusual as we are faced with uncertain and unprecedented times. The children in 6J have been an asset to the school and have worked exceptionally hard with their online tasks. I am very proud of you all. Here are some snip-its of what we have been doing.

English

Short story writing. Here are some paragraphs taken from children’s writing.

This is the image the children were provided with

As he walked further across the glistening magic dust, a glowing light cascaded over the lands like a frosted wave fading away. “Symbols,” the boy read out. The earth-like orb hovered glinting in the wild wind and the curious boy stretched for his creased leather bag. Jackson brought out a bottle of putrid liquid allowing it to air before he dropped it over the symbol- led ancient ring. Serena

Jackson, who was cold and afraid, ambled towards the extensive mountain which towered over his frail body. The gusty wind tickled his pale-white face as he looked behind and longed for home. A shrill cry echoed in the mist.“Help, please,” called a soft voice. Jackson raced over to the cliff and saw a small young boy reaching up to him. “ Who are you? What do you need?” blurted Jackson. Anju

Suddenly, a burst of light cascaded over the land, nearly blinding him before he had no other option but to flinch. Although the light was beaming in his eyes like he was right next to the sun, he kept on edging closer to the utterly magnificent orb as he was on a mission to save his beloved planet. Srihan

Well done to all children who submitted this work!

Art

There isn’t a lot for me to say here other than ‘Wow!’

The children watched short clips teaching them how to draw a sausage dog. As you can see there are some fabulous pieces. The children were also shown a picture of an egg and asked to think about what could be living inside waiting to emerge – I wouldn’t want to meet most of these on my own!

Well done this week 6J – it has been lovely to see you all chatting and engaging online. I am looking forward to seeing you continue to work hard next week on the exciting tasks I have planned for you.

Stay safe and have a fantastic weekend,

Miss Jones

Well done to Jacob E and Svana who have completed some of the Mathletics tasks set; the deadline for this is Saturday so please login and have a go!

Please check to see if you have any assignments missing or outstanding as you can still submit them after the due date.
To check this, look at the upcoming folder and click on view all. This will tell you which assignments you have completed and which you have missed.
I have placed some images below to help you with finding missing assignments.

This is where your assignments will appear each day. Click on view all.
You will then see this page. A tick means that you have submitted your assignments, assigned means you need to be working on these tasks and missing means that you didn’t complete by the deadline – but you can still do it and submit!

Please could I ask that parents have a look to help children identify if they have any missing tasks.

Well done everyone and keep up the hard work!

I look forward to seeing your work today,
Miss Jones

A productive week

This week the children have all been working really hard on their Mathematics and English skills and have produced some really good work.

English

This week the children have been continuing their work around the Highwayman poem by Alfred Noyes. The children have all been provided with a copy to take home and share so hopefully you have all seen this. The children were tasked with re-telling the poem in a narrative form. I was very impressed with what I was seeing and hearing during the lessons and I’m looking forward to reading these over the weekend. Last week, we produced some art work to depict the metaphors described in the poem. Here are some examples of the work produced.

The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas

The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees

His eyes were hollows of madness

Mathematics

This week we have been exploring perimeter, area and volume. The children could use some of their previous knowledge to help them think of the formulas to use. They worked really hard on these skills and could answer many SATs style questions based on these. I will be setting some questions around this in the coming weeks.

Homework

Children have been set pages in both of their revision guides. They will have the page numbers written down. They have also been given an arithmetic task to complete to develop their skills further.

Enjoy the weekend,

Miss Jones
