L3- Trying not to shed a tear.
L4- The screams of men are all I hear.
L5- The sound of bombs piercing my ears.
L6- We see gas and leave in a dash.
L7- The screams of men are all I hear.
L8- I look around, all I see is ash.

Hi Year 6,

 

To save a little on time each week, starting on Monday, all of your documentation will be uploaded to the Jaguars class page only. It will still be available on Tapestry as well. I delete the tasks weekly to avoid confusion for you all, so this means I only have to upload the documents once and delete them all once.

 

Please look on Jaguars page daily for your tasks from now on.

Happy New Year, Year 6!

 

Welcome back to a brand new year of learning! We know that it isn't exactly how we pictured 2021 to begin; however, it is important that we all do our bit to ensure everyone is safe. 

 

This half term, the children who are learning from home will do so online via Zoom and you will be required to submit all of your work through Tapestry, which can be done by scanning documents through the printer or simply taking a picture of your work and submitting it on the app/website. All of the relevant information regarding this will be shared with parents via email this evening, so please ensure that you keep checking your emails.  We will be uploading the Zoom session links to Tapestry (the links for each session will always stay the same throughout the whole half term).

 

It is extremely important that you attend these 'live lessons' as they will provide you with all the relevant subject knowledge required to perform your tasks. These will be delivered by Miss Scane and Mrs Hobbs will be available to help you if you need it too.  If you miss a Zoom session, all PowerPoints and resources will be uploaded to Tapestry for you to view at a time that suits you as a family.

 

Resources will not be uploaded to class pages.

 

Each day, you will have 3 sessions of learning to attend online:

 

Session 1: 9am-10am

Session 2: 11am-12pm

Session 3: 1.30pm-2.30pm

Story time: 2.45pm-3pm (this will be live in classes with the children who are attending school)

 

There will also be additional tasks to complete when you are not logged into Zoom, such as TTRockstars and Spelling Shed. A list of these will be on Tapestry to remind you.

 

Please note, you can still email your class teacher if you have any questions regarding any of the learning. A reminder of the emails are below:

 

Miss Stafford and Miss Wilson: tigers@eye.peterborough.sch.uk

Miss Scane: jaguars@eye.peterborough.sch.uk

Miss Wren: lions@eye.peterborough.sch.uk

 

We have attached the timetable of learning below:

 

We are looking forward to seeing you all, whether that be in person or virtually!

 

For this week only, Thursday afternoon will be a PE session. Details will be available on Tapestry.

Timetable (Updated)

What are we learning this year?

Tigers are celebrating getting their first swimming badges of the year! Well done to our super swimmers!

We took full advantage of the weather to inspire our Frozen Kingdom descriptive writing this week! #onlocationwriting

We are coders! Exploring loops and repetitions.

Research: The history of electricity ( optional weekly task) 

How have the great pioneers of electricity helped society?

 

In class, we briefly discussed the history of electricity through the timeline shown below. If you would like too learn more, then perhaps you could research further into how electricity has developed over the years. Present it in any way you like, but try to use images and evidence of key scientists to help convey your understanding. 

Optional maths task. Retrieval practice for improper fractions.

Light quiz

5th November - Today the children have been practising peer assessment techniques when revisiting vocabulary.

Exploring mood - 4th November

17th October - Long division challenge

16th October - Today we kicked off our new writing unit on instructions by exploring algorithms and following a recipe for Pumpkin soup.

8th October 2020 - This week the children have been learning how to divide 3 and 4-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers. They all worked really hard, and I look forward to seeing how much they remember during retrieval practice over the next few months.

5.10.20 Class Netball

2nd October - Light investigation - Today we learnt about reflection and refraction. We investigated the laws of reflection and measured how the angle of reflection and the angle of incidence are related.

2nd October 2020 - This week, we have been learning how to solve longer multiplication problems. In order to achieve mastery, we must be able to spot mistakes in other people's calculations, and determine the misconception that they may have. Miss Stafford likes to show us examples of this in class to make sure we do not encounter the same errors. Here is an optional task where you can check calculations and determine the errors made.

National Poetry day - today we have been exploring Miss Wilson's vast collection of poetry books. The children have also created their own poems which I am sure they will enjoy sharing with you at home.

30th September 2020 - Mixed operations challenge. Last week, we learnt about mixed operations in maths. Can you add the brackets in the equations below?

Friday 25th September - Today, we discussed how shadows were formed. Using their newly acquired knowledge, the children were able to explain at what points of the day their shadow would be shortest and when it would be longest. They also found that the closer a light source is to an opaque object, the larger the shadow is cast from that object.

Quiz relating to this week's learning:

Science

1)What is a life cycle?

2) What is the life cycle of most mammals such as dogs?

3)What is the life cycle of an amphibian?

4)What is the life cycle of many insects such as a butterfly?

5) Describe the human life cycle

Geography

1) Why has Peterborough seen a large increase in its population since 1950?

2) Name the 4 strands of physical geography.

3) Name the 4 strands of human geography. 

Maths

Convert the following:

1) CCXLII

2) 559

3)DCCXCVI

 

The Tigers class is taught by Miss Wilson (Monday and Tuesday) and Miss Stafford (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). 

 

Remember: The Year 6 school day will now be from 9:10am - 3:30pm.

 

PE will be on a Monday.

PE STARTS ON MONDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER.

 

Please ensure that you wear your PE kit to school every Monday. We will not be getting changed prior to the lesson. 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 this year is going to be slightly different. It will consist of weekly tasks set on both TTRockstars and Spelling Shed. Your log in information will be sent out to you by the end of the first week back. Some additional home learning tasks or projects may be set at additional times throughout the year.

 

As was the case last year, individual reading records will not be given to children in Year 5 and 6. Instead there will be a class reading diary with individual pages for each child to track the books that they have read when they have finished them. Raffle tickets and prizes will still be in place for UKS2 and Miss Reed will be in charge of this.

 

Overview of Autumn 1

 

We are looking forward to an action-packed first half term with you all. We have some fantastic learning opportunities lined up, kick-started by our first History topic - The Titanic. This was a HUGE hit with the children last year and we are thoroughly excited to enjoy exploring the events that occurred on 14th April 1912 with you, too. 

 

In English, we will be immersing ourselves in the classic novel 'Alice in Wonderland' by Lewis Carroll. To introduce this text, we will be starting off with our own version of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, before spending the rest of Autumn 1 following the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole and into the bonkers world that is Wonderland!

 

In Maths, 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.

 

A gentle reminder: if you wish to provide your child with extra revision materials, please do not use previous SATs papers as these will be used for assessment throughout the school year. 

 

Please keep an eye on our class page for updates and snapshots of our learning!  laugh

Psssssssssst! Here's a sneak peek at our wonderful new reading tree. We have some new, beautiful books just waiting to be read by you!
