BRADWORTHY PRIMARY ACADEMY

YEAR SIX COVID-19 SUPPORT PAGE

You have reached an age where you are responsible for your work - not your parents !!!

 

This doesn't mean that your parents aren't allowed to help you but it does mean that they shouldn't have to be going on at you to get on with things or getting stressed out because you're being difficult and don't want to work.

 

You need to decide where you are going to work each day and when you are going to work.
You need to make sure you are doing a mix of things that you enjoy, as well as things you find harder and maybe don't enjoy quite so much, and you also need to make sure you have plenty of breaks and "down-time".

You will need to put your uniforms on when you are working so that it's just the same as being in school.

 

You should be working for between three and five hours each day and this will include:

 

  • the work we set here
  • research (like the things we are asking you to do for our history project)
  • reading (at least 30 minutes each day)
  • computer based things (like Edshed)
  • art, craft and music
  • exercise (like the sessions that Joe Wicks puts online each day)
  • educational TV programs (like documentaries and the programs on CBBC each day)

 

If you need any help with the things we are asking you to do you have two options:

 

  • email us using our class email address which is: class6@bradworthy.devon.sch.uk
  • leave a message, or a question, on our Year Six Blog-Site

 

You MUST make contact with us at least once every week so that you can tell us what you have done.

Learning Pack: Wednesday 27th January 

 

Hi everyone, 


I hope you are all ok, and managing to stay busy and positive.  It's got to be said, the weather isn't really helping at the moment, but hopefully you are still managing to get outside and get some fresh air each day. 

You can download the pack for this week below, and any links that you will need are also included.  

This week our English is based on Discussion Texts, and our Maths work is based on adding and subtracting decimals.   You also have History tasks, Edshed Challenges, a First Aid Video and a Wellbeing task based on Everyday Heroes. 

 

As always we are very happy to give you any help you may need.  It is really important that you watch the videos before you start each session, as the video gives you a clear explanation of each task.  We love to hear what you have been up to, either on the class blog site, or using the class email address.  

Thank you to everyone who has sent work over during the past week - it is really wonderful to see what you have been getting up to! 

 

Have a wonderful week. 

Mrs T  xxx

Year Six Art Project

 

Simon has set you an art topic which you should work on over the next few weeks up to half-term.

Please download the following document to find out all about what he wants you to do.
You can spend as much time as you like working on it each week, however please make sure you're doing at least an hour at some point.

 

Please make sure that you are uploading photos of the things you are doing, as well as photos of you doing it, to our blog-site so that we can see what you're up to - which is very important for art.

We've set up a special "Art Project" blog-page for you to do this - please use this.  

 

The Week Beginning Monday 11th January:

 

The Landlady is a long English topic which will take several weeks to complete please try and complete the work that is set by the end of each week so that you keep up.
There is a video in our Video Resource Centre for you to have a look at.
This week you will need to:

  • write the 200 word story which is described on the first page. It's all about arriving at school on the first day of term. I've given examples of direct and non-direct characterisation on our blog-site.
  • Listen to the first part of the story (which is in our Video Resource Centre) and then read it for yourself. 
  • Answer the questions (in full sentences) and do the vocabulary work which is in the booklet after the first part of the story.

 

We will be working on fractions for the next few weeks.
You need to complete the worksheet "Fractions 1". When you get to the third page do either sections A and B (easier), or sections B and C (harder).

A video will go up on Monday evening which will help with this so you may want to leave this until Tuesday - sorry for the delay.

 

A Maths revision sheet called - "Maths Revision 1".

 

A Thinking Activity called - "Pattern Steps".

 

Watch the science video about Force which I've put in the Video Resource Centre.

You need to complete the things on the sheet called: Science 1 - Force.

 

Watch a documentary, or something educational from CBBC, so that you can tell us at least one thing you've learned during the week.

 

These activities have been set by me (Sir) and I will normally be setting things for Monday morning.

Mrs Turner will be adding work later in the week so don't think that this is everything your going to get !!

 

 

 

Year Six Home Learning Week 1 

Hi everyone, 

I hope you are all ok - we are missing seeing you all in school, and I really hope that this will all be over soon so we can get back to having lots of fun! 

Each week I will give you a pack of work for Weds - Fri, which you will be able to work through.  This is set up in the same way as the packs we used in Year Five.  The links in the pack will take you to any webpages or videos you need, or you can use the links here.  

There are a couple of pieces of work which need to be 'handed in' this week - which means you will need to email them to me.  You can do this on class6@bradworthy.devon.sch.uk, and you can add pictures or typed work to the emails - whatever is easiest for you! 

Remember to use the blog to stay in touch with us - there will be a general blog for all of the work in this pack, and I will also add a history project blog for you to contribute to.   It's really important that we hear from you every week, so please stay in touch.  

Finally, remember to keep reading (30 mins per day), keep active (Joe Wicks) and keep using Edshed.  Watch some of the new CBBC programmes, and I would recommend the new David Attenborough series if you haven't already seen it - I'm sure it will be available on iPlayer.
See you soon, 

Mrs T xxx
