Good morning Year 6 – hope you all had a great weekend J .  Can you believe we are about to move into July this week!  As we were all due to set off to PGL this weekend, we thought it would be fun to try and incorporate some PGL style activities into your distance learning.  You will have 3 core pieces of work to complete each day before choosing some of the PGL style activities to have a go at. Some of the activities are more suited for you to complete at home, whilst others are more appropriate for the children in school, so please pick the activities which you think you could most effectively do at home! 

You will be working from one big ppt this week, which has all the information you need!

Good morning Year 6 – hope you all had a great weekend :). This week our theme for distance learning is ‘Africa’. There is a PowerPoint below for you to follow. We are aware that the ‘PE with Joe’ is no longer live daily. Therefore, during this part of the distance learning, we would like you to complete 30 minutes of exercise of your choice (this could be a previous Joe Wicks workout, a bike ride or a walk – it is totally up to you).  You will notice that some of your tasks are called ‘DigiMap’ sessions. This is a new tool that we have purchased as a school and it is fantastic. There will be a separate PowerPoint loaded below for you to follow. There are about 10 tasks in total, but it is up to you how many you choose to complete each day, as long as they are finished by the end of the week. The PowerPoint has step-by-step instructions and diagrams to help you with the tasks.

Task One – On the 21st March 2020, zoos were told to close due to the country going into lockdown. Up until last week, there were no plans to open zoos at all. This caused lots of worry for zoo keepers. How do you think this has impacted the animals living in these zoos?

Your task

Can you create something to explain how lockdown has impacted the animals living in zoos?

This could be a poster or a bubble map or something else of your choosing.

 

Task Two – What Now for Zoos?

Last week, after much outrage from the general public surrounding the re-opening of zoos, the government announced that zoos could re-open from the 15th June.

This was wonderful news as many zoos were worried about how the animals would survive if the zoos weren’t making any money.

 

Your Task

 

Can you come up with a plan to help the zoos recover from the impact the coronavirus has had on them? What sort of things could they be doing to encourage people to come and visit?

 

Task Three-   Today, you need to begin to design your zoo. You will need a large piece of plain white paper and a pencil.

 

You will need to begin to draw out the different areas you planned yesterday. Think about the best placement for each animal. You may even come up with something new to add that you didn’t think of yesterday. This is going to end up being the map of your zoo.

During this task we are going to be myth busters, and filtering out any myths we have heard, as secondary school can be scary enough without these myths to make it even more daunting.

Use the PPT to read through some different myths and also write down what you have heard.

Create a list of the myths we have discussed today and we want you to put a big red line through them to show that they are in fact false, and not things you need to worry about!

Imagine you are throwing these worries and anxieties away and erasing them from your mind.

Linked below is a PowerPoint entitled ‘Thursday Distance Learning Living in a Green City’. This is a slightly edited version of what we are going to be using in school today to learn more about the environment and complete our ‘create your own town’ project. Work your way carefully through the PowerPoint and complete the two tasks explained on it. Both tasks are part of our town project and will take us nicely into World Environment Day tomorrow!

Some other tasks that we are going to be doing in school that you can do at home too-

  • Watch Newsround
  • Complete a Joe Wicks HIIT Workout
  • Start a new book

Wednesday 3rd June 2020, 3.6.20

Good morning Year 6. Just a reminder to make sure you complete all the tasks set for you (especially if you are coming back to school on Thursday). We are really looking forward to seeing more of you tomorrow. Make sure you get a good night’s sleep tonight in preparation.

As always, if you need to contact us, you can do so on the email addresses below. Our replies won’t be as quick as usual due to us being in school, but we will try to get back to you as quick as we can.

Task One- Linked below is a PowerPoint all about the artist Banksy. He has produced many street art pieces over the years, usually with some kind of political message, but no-one actually knows his real identity. He’s a secret artist! Work your way through the presentation and make some notes about him and his art. Can you work out what some of the messages within his art might be?

 

Task Two- You have an option with this task. Linked below is a second PowerPoint, titled Banksy Art Choices. There are three images of Banksy’s most recent street art. The first option is to choose one of the pieces and create your own version of it, either copying it completely or changing parts of it if you wish. Try to keep to Banksy’s style if you can; he uses a lot of black, white and grey with colour used as a focus point within his art. The second option is to be a little more creative and create your own art, inspired by Banksy, with a message related to the world issue you researched yesterday. So, for example, if you created a presentation on racism, your Banksy-inspired art would try to portray the effect racism is having on the world. Remember to stick to his style as much as possible.

 

Task Three- Day three of our ‘create your own town’ task and we are carrying on our Art theme. Today, you will need to colour in your map carefully and neatly and then, using the third PowerPoint linked below, draw a co-ordinate grid over the top of it. This will help us to create a key to identify where particular places are within your town. An example of this is on the PowerPoint.

 

Some other tasks that we are going to be doing in school that you can do at home too-

  • Watch Newsround
  • Complete a Joe Wicks HIIT Workout
  • Start a new book

Tuesday 2nd June 2020

Task 1

Today we will be looking at world issues. Choose from one of the world issues below and find out as much as you can about this issue. Newsround is a great place to start.

  • Racism
  • Covid- 19
  • Life beyond Earth - Space Travel
  • The environment

You can present your research in any way you wish. Some ideas for presentation include

  • An information text
  • A power point
  • An Adobe Spark Video

Task 2

Town designers

Today, you need to begin to design your town. You will need a large piece of plain white paper and a pencil. You are not adding colour today!

Using the design below as inspiration, you need to begin to draw out the different areas you planned yesterday. Think about the best placement for each building. You may even come up with something new to add that you didn’t think of yesterday.

This is going to end up being the map of your town.

Monday 1st June 2020, 1.6.2020

 

Good morning Year 6. As you will know, today is the first day back to school for some of your classmates (and Thursday will see the return of more of you!) Those of you that are remaining at home will not be doing anything different from what we are doing in school. The only difference will be the settings you are working in. Baring this in mind, there may be more similar tasks set in the following weeks because we need to ensure children in school can complete them too.

It is really important that you complete all tasks set this week, especially the ‘create your own town’ task (more details below). We will be continuing some of the tasks in school on Thursday and Friday, so if you are due to return, you need to have completed them ready. We are very excited to see so many of your faces and continue to miss those of you we aren’t seeing just yet.

As always, if you need to contact us, you can do so on the email addresses below. Our replies won’t be as quick as usual due to us being in school, but we will try to get back to you as quick as we can.

Task One- Another reading comprehension based on a well-known song today. Listen carefully and watch the music video of Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Someone You Loved’ and then answer the reading comprehension questions based on the lyrics. The document you need is linked below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zABLecsR5UE

 

Task Two- How much can you remember from our Maths lessons this year? We’ll soon find out when you take part in the Maths Quiz! The PowerPoint with the quiz questions on it is linked below for you to download. The questions are multiple choice and the answers are on the slides, but don’t cheat! Have a good go at each question yourself first before checking your answer.

 

Task Three- A little more information on the ‘create your own town’ task we will be completing over the course of this week. On Friday, it is World Environment Day, so this entire week is going to dip into tasks related to our beloved planet and what we can do to save it. Our main task this week is going to be creating and making up our own towns. Each day, you will be given the next set of instructions to this activity. Sometimes there will be a PowerPoint to help you. Today, however, your task is simple, but creative. You need to begin thinking about your town and planning out some ideas on paper.

  • What is the name of your town?
  • Create a list of things within your town, e.g. shops, buildings, schools, parks, emergency services etc. You could even come up with names for some of those too like a name for the café and the primary school.
  • Decide on some key facts about your town. What is the population? Do you have an MP or a mayor? What is the landscape like- is it more like a busy city or more like the countryside? What transport is available?

You are not designing your town properly today. Today is all about jotting down ideas ready to begin designing it.

 

Some other tasks that we are going to be doing in school that you can do at home too-

  • Watch Newsround
  • Complete a Joe Wicks HIIT Workout
  • Start a new book

Bookman has a new challenge for May!

Please try and complete one literacy themed activity each day. Please see the PDF link below for more information.

Friday 22nd May 2020

 

Using the information, you gathered yesterday complete a WANTED poster about Dick Turpin. Of course, if you need more information to support the task, use the internet to gather it.

 

This can be completed in your Distance Learning books or completed on a computer and sent over. Remember to include some drawings or pictures.

Thursday 21St May 2020

 

Today’s task is a research based one. You need to gather as much information as you can. The more information you gather, the easier you will find tomorrow’s task to complete.

 

We would like you to research as much information as you can about Dick Turpin, the infamous Highwayman. He lived during the Georgian times and would have been one of the key figures we studied during our Crime and Punishment topic this term. You will need to learn what a highwayman was, why Dick Turpin was so infamous and dig deep to find the real story of his life. This will involve your Computing skills to ensure the websites you are using are giving you accurate information.

 

Ensure you find out specifically about how he was caught and killed. You will need as much information as possible about his capture and punishment for tomorrow’s task. I’ve linked a PowerPoint below and some sources to this post to support your learning too.

 

Some websites and videos to support you with your research to get you started:

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p078r5rb/horrible-histories-songs-2-dick-turpin

https://primaryfacts.com/1273/dick-turpin-facts-and-information-about-the-famous-highwayman/

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0389t8

 

If you find researching challenging use the power point provided and write down the key facts ready for tomorrow's learning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 20th May 2020

Task One- Something a little different today. Arguably one of the most inspiring and empowering songs released over the last few years, ‘This is Me’ from the Greatest Showman describes what it means to feel as if you aren’t a part of society and learning how to be proud of who you are. Watch and listen carefully to the YouTube video of the song linked below and then answer the reading comprehension questions. The song lyrics are linked in the document beneath this post. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjxugyZCfuw (Link to YouTube)

 

  1. What does it mean to be a stranger to the dark?
  2. What are her broken parts?
  3. Can these be fixed?
  4. What does the word 'ashamed' mean?
  5. Why has she used the word scars?
  6. Do you think she is brave? Why?
  7. Do you like this song? Why?
  8. What is the message of this song?
  9. On a scale of 1-5, how effectively does it convey this message? Why?
  10. How would you describe this song in one word?
  11. What lessons can we learn from this song today?

 

 

Task Two- We’d like you to write a lockdown letter today. You are going to write this letter to yourself to open when you are older and reflect back on what life is like at this moment in time. In it, we’d like you to outline what is happening in the world and what has caused it, but also think about where you are in your lives now. Outline how it has affected you, as well as what you are like as a person today. Once complete, pop it in an envelope, seal it shut and write your name on it with a date to open in the future, preferably quite some time away. Ask your parents and carers to keep it safe for you.

 

Task Three- Today, we would like you to go for a walk for your daily exercise, preferably somewhere quite natural like the Nature Reserve or a woodland area if you can. This can be at any point of the day, but we want you to walk and enjoy the world around you. We want you to look around you on your walk and take note of the beautiful things about the world. How many different animals can you spot? What is the weather like? How does the weather feel? Take a moment to watch the clouds move. Can you spot any shapes that they make? How many different types of plants, flowers and trees can you see? Walking is a wonderful way to clear your mind and help you feel relaxed.

 

Tuesday 19th May 2020

Task One- A little bit of Geography today. We learnt about icebergs before Christmas and read the story of Ernest Shackleton and his expedition across Antarctica. Using research to support your task, can you write his biography? It should feature sections about his early life, how he can to be an explorer, the expedition itself and what happened and the end of his life and death.

 

Use the power point and websites below to help you with this task.

https://kids.britannica.com/students/article/Ernest-Shackleton/336260

https://primaryfacts.com/3053/sir-ernest-shackleton-facts-and-information/

Task Two- Something that incorporates a little C4LS and some Art. As I’m sure most of you will agree, one of the most frustrating elements of lockdown for you is that you have missed out on some of the most exciting things about being in Year 6. As you know we have a few things in our heads planned that we hope we will be able to do once lockdown is over, but for now we will continue to stay home to stay safe and support the NHS. Today, we’d like you to create a piece of Art to showcase how lockdown has affected you personally. Try to incorporate the positives as well as the negatives and then send us a photo to display on the class page.

 

Task Three- Help an adult at home out today in some way. Not only will it be appreciated, it will be a lovely opportunity to spend some time together. You could help cook dinner or work in the garden. It might be keeping a younger sibling occupied or helping with their school work. It might be helping to tidy and clean the house. Let me know what you did over email!

Task One – Debating Task

Is now the right time to re-open our schools?

 

Today’s task is a spoken language task. You may have seen on the news that there is lots of discussion at the moment about re-opening schools. How does this make you feel? Do you think this right the decision? Consider both the positives and the negatives and the bigger picture of re-opening schools. Once you have collected your ideas, we would like you to have a debate with your parents / siblings to share your point of view. Please see the speaking and listening ticket below to help you have your debate.

We would like you to create an information sheet outlining the different ways we can keep ourselves safe online.

 

Task Two – History Task

 

Y Your next history topic is all about Crime and Punishment Through the Ages.      Therefore, you could spend some time researching the following:

  • Top facts
You could present this research as a report, a project shoebox, or as a beautiful double page spread. We will look forward to sharing the research and discovering what we have all learnt.

Good morning Panthers,

I hope you all managed to enjoy your long weekend! 

Starting this week, we are going to mix up your home learning a bit. We will be stepping away from the CGP books and focusing on the foundation subjects. Today, you have three tasks to complete. If you want to do anything extra, then feel free to look through the Distance Learning booklets and choose something from there.

 

Task One – Music Task

Think back to our music lessons where we focused on “Lucky” by Pharrell Williams. Research your favourite song to find out the purpose of it being produced and then think about:

  • Why do you like the song?
  • What instruments can you hear?
  • What is the style of music?
  • Tempo
  • Rhythm
  • Mood of the song
  • What it reminds you of

 

Task two - Be Kind

Hi Year 6 and your parents,

 

We have some wonderful news to share with you all. As you are all aware, this would have been your last few months at Eye Primary School. Although we cannot celebrate you all like we would hope to at this time, the ESA (Eye School Association) have very kindly offered to give you all a small part of the usual Year 6 leavers ritual. They have offered to cover the entire cost for each of you to order yourself a Year 6 leavers hoodie. That means, that this year, you will all receive your hoodie as a gift, rather than having to pay for it yourselves. 

 

The ESA felt that you all deserved something special and we are so grateful to them for offering something so kind to you all. A letter has been sent to all parents on Parentmail and it is really important that this is looked at to show you how to order. There is a cut-off date for ordering, however, and no late orders will be accepted, so please make sure you order within the given time frame. We will be calling each and every one of you Thursday and Friday this week, so will ensure to remind you all then too.

 

We have uploaded the letter directly from the ESA underneath this post.

 

This is a lovely gesture and you all deserve to receive this special gift as you are all very special children. We miss you lots and can't wait to speak to you all at the end of the week.

 

Miss Collins, Miss Faux, Miss Scane and Miss Wren

Distance Learning: Letter for Parents/Carers

World Book Day 2020

 

Today we had a visit from Bookman and Bookboy! 

Year 6 have had a great week to finish off January. We had a special assembly led by the NSPCC to launch our school fund-raising event, which will begin on the 3rd February. We have also been visited by the artist Roland Burt, who led a special art session with us, where we learnt that everyone is an artist and you can use many tools to create art. 

NSPCC

Today we had a very special visitor in school - Book Man! He is our school superhero and he set us a reading challenge to complete over the Christmas break. The 12 days of Christmas Reading Challenge. We look forward to seeing him around school in the New Year.

In Science we dissected a pig's eye!  11.10.19

 

We had an amazing day on Tuesday when poem Neal Zetter came into school to work with us. He even watched us perform our poem in out poetry slam! 

 

 

 

Year 6's Titanic topic kicked off with a bang with Friday's WOW day...

 

Year 6 immersed themselves in the age of the Titanic during our WOW day, researching real passengers and crew members who boarded the famous ship and finding out their fates. This research introduced the children to a world of fascinating facts, which has only served to increase curiosity surrounding this topic and our History lessons ahead. We spent the next part of the day finding out what life would have been like for our passengers based on the class system on board the ship before joining together to hot seat and teach one another about first, second and third class. This incredible day ended with a year group circle time, an opportunity to share with everyone some brilliant facts from the day and, as was the case with facts shared by some children, facts learnt through independent research.

 

Check out some of our photos below!

 

                 

 

                 

 

Welcome to Panthers Class Page!

 

 

The Panthers class is taught by Miss Collins. 

 

PE will be on Monday. Please ensure that PE kits are in school every week as this is an important part of our school curriculum and we encourage all children to take part. Appropriate PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, black or blue shorts or jogging bottoms and suitable footwear such as trainers or plimsolls.

 

Home Learning Books are due in every Tuesday and will be marked ready for you to complete the next tasks on Thursday. 

 

Individual Reading Diaries will not be given to children in Years 5 and 6 this year. Instead, there will be a class reading diary with individual pages for each child to track the books they have read when they have finished them. This is to encourage more independence and maturity when approaching reading. Raffle tickets and prizes will still be in place for UKS2 and Miss Reed will be in charge of this! 

 

All children will still have access to Times Table Rockstars and we hope you will join us in encouraging your child to access this at home as much as possible. 

 

 

Autumn 1

 

I am looking forward to an action-packed first half term with my new class!  We have some fantastic new learning opportunities lined up, kick-started by a brand new History topic- The Titanic! Our learning in class will be accompanied by a trip to the Greenwich Maritime Museum in October to spend the day as a Titanic passenger. More information to come! 

In English, we will be immersing ourselves in the classic novel 'Skellig' by David Almond. This is a rather mysterious text with an interesting twist on a previously well-known supernatural being... stay tuned to find out more!

In Math, we will be studying number and place value, ensuring that we are secure with numbers to ten million. This will then be followed by revision of the four operations. Please come and speak to us if you have any questions about concepts or methods taught in class if you wish to support your child at home. 

 

Letters will be sent home regarding both the Titanic trip to London and PGL, our annual Year 6 residential during the first full week back. Any queries at all, please speak to one of the Year 6 teachers. 

 

Please keep checking out our class page for important updates and snapshots of our learning! :)
