CLASS SIX

Year Six Home Learning Weekly Plan – weeks beginning 6th and 13th July 2020

 

Well Year Six, you made it!!

We have finally reached the last two weeks of your time at Holy Trinity Primary School. I know things have turned out very differently this year and that we haven't been able to carry out many of our end-of-year-six plans and celebrations, but hopefully we will be able to have lots of fun when you are in school either this week (starting 6th July) or next week (starting 13th July). We have got some exciting things planned in for you (even though we will have to do everything at a safe distance from each other!)

During the days when you are not in school, you have got a mini project to complete - SPELLBOUND - where all the work and suggestions have a magical theme.

I have also added a few links to work or activities that you might want to complete over the summer holidays (if you get stuck for something to do).

I can't wait to see you all again - I've missed you!

Year Six Home Learning Weekly Plan – week beginning 29th June 2020

Hello Year Six :-)

Welcome to the next week of home-learning!

This week you will have Maths as usual, but instead of Literacy, you will have a tasty little project to complete – all about CHOCOLATE!!!

On July 7th 2020 it is World Chocolate Day, so I thought we could prepare for it in advance (and maybe indulge in one of the world’s favourite treats as we go along – you deserve it!) Whether it is chocolate milk, hot chocolate, a chocolate bar, chocolate cake or chocolate brownies that you prefer, this project is for you!

If you are looking for a little extra challenge this week, why not join Professor Brian Cox for a science lesson - all about chocolate! Watch this video first to find out all about the science behind heating and cooling chocolate:

 

Then watch Professor Cox set up for a chocolate science experiment with a class teacher - how could you amend what they do so that you can carry out your own experiment at home?

 

Now watch the experiment in action:

 

Finally, it's your turn to complete your own investigation in to the melting times of chocolate - use the sheet to help you set up and to record your prediction, results and conclusion.

Year Six Home Learning Weekly Plan – Week beginning 22nd June 2020

Hello again Year Six! Welcome to another week of home-learning!

It was lovely to see so many of your smiling faces on the Zoom catch-up last week, and to hear everything that you have all been up to.

I really missed seeing those of you who couldn’t make it and hope you are all well, happy and keeping busy.

After listening to some of your suggestions, we are going to try something a little different as part of our Literacy work this week – you are all going to become fashion designers! You have a project to complete as part of the ‘Social Distancing Fashion Studios’ – this will involve some thinking, designing, making (if you want to) and some reading and writing work too.

Hello again Year Six!!

This week’s home-learning is going to be a little bit different. You will still have Maths lessons as usual, but instead of Literacy lessons, you will have tasks to complete that are based around transition to secondary school. Sadly, this year there won’t be any visits from your high school teachers, and there are unlikely to be transition days, where you get to spend time in your new school, so I have put together some lessons, activities and resources that will help prepare you for the exciting times ahead.  If you are going to Saddleworth School then you can also go on a virtual tour of your secondary school by clicking on the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkMlhtKJqrg&feature=youtu.be 

There is also transition information available on the Saddleworth School website:

https://www.saddleworth.oldham.sch.uk/transition 

I have contacted other high schools to see if they have any similar tours, videos or information available and I will post information from them as/when I receive it.

There is also useful information for parents in the document below:

If, after completing the work I have set you this week, you still have any questions about transition to high school, or you want to know more, please get in touch with the school you are going to.

* DON’T FORGET TO KEEP PRACTISING YOUR TABLES ON TT ROCKSTARS OR HIT THE BUTTON AND KEEP READING FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES EVERYDAY *

Sadly Year Six, this is the week when we should all have been packing our bags, kissing our families goodbye and heading off to Robinwood together for some adrenaline-fuelled action and adventure. After all your hard work and dedication to learning this year, I am so upset and disappointed that Miss Smith, Mrs Cooper-Hobson and I are not able to throw you all (head-first?) into the piranha pool, watch eagerly as you giggle (scream?) your way down the giant zip-wire, or try to hold back our tears as you laugh at our attempts to catch the trapeze from the top of a 5 metre tower. Whilst I can’t offer to take you anywhere exciting this week, I have tried to make this week’s home-learning a little bit more fun than usual… 

…instead of daily Maths and English activities, your task this week is to design, cost out and create your own adventure-filled theme park! 

You can work on this task on your own, with people who are at home with you, or (if you get permission from your parents first!) you can even work on this project with some of your classmates via online group (video) chats – I know how much you are all missing your friends. Each day, there will be a different theme-park-based activity(ies) for you to complete – some days these will be Maths-based, some days these will be English-based, and some days there will be a combination of both. There will also be an ‘Extra Activity’ every day – you can choose to do this should you want something else to keep you busy/out of mischief.

Now go get designing and have fun!

Well Year Six, this is the week when, under normal circumstances, you would all be sitting your SATS tests. Some of you will be delighted and relieved that you don’t have to complete the tests, but there will be others amongst you who are a little bit disappointed that you don’t get to show everyone how hard you’ve worked this year, how much effort you’ve put into your learning since September and how much progress you have made. No matter how you may feel about being not taking part in the SATS tests this year, I want you to know how very proud of each and every one of you I am. You have all worked your socks off this year, and made fantastic progress. It has been an absolute pleasure to watch you rise to the responsibilities of Year Six and mature in to such kind, caring, responsible and accomplished young people – neither I, nor your families, need SATS tests to tell us how amazing you all are.
