Hello Willow! 

I hope you are all well - it was lovely to speak to some of you (and your parents) last week. Once again it has been brilliant looking at what everyone has been doing over this last week on Twitter (including the rest of the school and Goldsborough). If you haven’t checked it out yet take a look @GS_Federation 

Here is a quick reminder of the main websites and resources that you could be using during this week to carry on your learning. Easter Holidays are soon approaching but a little bit of structure, brain activity and fun may be just what you are looking for!

You should have a login for the websites, but if you have forgotten or lost it please send an email to Mrs McCarthy and we will try our best to send a reminder. 

Reminder of Activities at home: 

Don’t forget – little and often – you don’t need to go on every site every day! 

TT Rockstars – try to complete 30 mins a session. https://ttrockstars.com/  

EDSHED - Spelling and Maths Shed website https://play.edshed.com/  Try and focus on Stages 5 and 6 

5 A Day Maths website  https://corbettmathsprimary.com/5-a-day/ 

Power Maths Books – 30 mins a session, if possible.  This may not be a complete lesson in the book.  Try to focus on pages that are not new to you.  

WHITE ROSE MATHS - A daily maths lesson with tuturial video, answer sheet and 'the answers!' https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ 

This is the main scheme followed at school and worth a look 

KIRFs – Spend 15 minutes working on some KIRF facts learning them by heart.  (Conker KIRFs has some great online games for this.) http://www.conkermaths.org/cmweb.nsf/pages/kirfs.html  

Daily Reading – at least 30 mins a day, write down new vocabulary – don’t forget to investigate what these words mean!  If you finish a book, complete a book review – we’d love to see these!  

Read theory – online reading comprehension minimum of 30 mins a session.  We can see your progress – Can you do 10 quizzes this week? Go to : readtheory.org/auth/login. I can see that lots of you have been really exploring this site. Well done! 

Writing - Pobble 365 – aim to complete 1 writing task per week. The writing tasks in your pack should take you through to next week but if you have already completed them just go to the pobble website (pobble365) and chose one that you like. Please remember to add the date of the one you chose to your title so I can share it when we get back to school. 

Handwriting and Spelling – 15 mins per day, using the statutory word lists provided. Or use Spelling Shed website (EDSHED) 

Year 6 : Your revision guides are a great resource. You can still let me know your ideas for renaming them!

NEW

PROJECT WORK 

This week I would like you to focus on either Rivers or Easter.

Rivers

Take a look at 

http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/rivers.html

What questions would you like to answer?

Why are rivers important? What are the stages of a river? What is river pollution? How do floods happen?

Easter

Take a look at 

http://projectbritain.com/easter.html#story

Or have a look at the Easter Story link below.

What questions would you like to research about Easter? 

Be creative! You could make a PowerPoint, ‘Word’ report, Poster, Newspaper article, 3D model, piece of artwork or something else of your choosing. When you’re finished it would be great to see what you have been up to and share them on our Twitter page. Or email pictures to Mrs McCarthy at school (the school email). 

Take care, keep washing those hands and look after each other! 

Mr Morris and Mrs Keyse
