During the temporary school closure, we will provide our Year 6 students with many tasks and activities that we hope will keep them engaged and interested in their learning. We hope that this will help to provide everyone a little bit of structure to their day but also give the flexibility required to learn however, and whenever, suits you and your child best. All activities at this level are intended to be as independent as possible!
Each week we will outline a schedule of activities below. These activities will be best accessed through the online learning platform Seesaw (app.seesaw.me) for which your child has been given login details. This is accessible through a browser (Chrome or Firefox work best) or via the Seesaw Class app on mobile devices. Full instructions for tasks (written, verbal or video) will be provided to help your child and they will then be able to submit their work via the site (in a variety of ways) for us to see what they’ve done and to give feedback as suitable.
At the bottom of this page, you will also find links to useful websites and resources that can be accessed at anytime for additional learning.
If you have any problems accessing Seesaw then please contact your child’s class teacher via the ClassDojo app and we will endeavour to share the learning in a different way. If you have no access to Class Dojo then please contact the School Office who will get a message to us.
Regards, The Year 6 Team
Easter Holidays (4th-19th April)
We will be providing daily activities during scheduled term-time only. During the Easter holidays we would strongly encourage all of Y6 to have a very well-earned break – they have worked extremely hard all year. However, below is a list of additional learning activities should you want to take part in any of them over the holidays.
All details for these activities are on your class Seesaw page (from Saturday 4th April):
- Make ‘blood’.
- Make a stethoscope.
- Watch the film of ‘Pig-Heart Boy’ (but make sure you have finished watching/listening to the book first!).
- Make your healthy-heart recipe (related to the task from Friday 3rd April). Write a review and post a photo.
- ‘Kitchen Cupboard’ family science.
- Catch-up on any of the other activities from 23rd March – 3rd April that you have not yet completed
- Keep active – PE with Joe or create your own activities.
Normal daily activities will begin again on Monday 20th April.
We will be starting a ‘Gallery Rebels‘ topic next term. This is a short art-based topic so if possible, please make sure you have basic art materials in the house – i.e. plain paper or a sketchbook, felt pens and coloured pencils. Do not worry if you don’t have these in – there will be opportunities to do any practical tasks ‘digitally’ as well.
