YEAR 6

 

Good luck Year 6

A final message to say a big thank-you, goodbye and good luck to all our children in Year 6. You have been a brilliant bunch to work with and all of the staff at Fens will miss you. We know you will continue to shine as you move on in your education. Keep working hard and enjoy the new challenges that await you. We’d like to wish all of you a massive ‘good luck’ for the future; you have been an absolute pleasure to teach this year! Keep working hard and enjoy secondary school with a smile on your faces. I hope you can pop in some time and show your face in the near future.

 Mr Keen

To my new class, I’m really sorry that I haven’t had the opportunity to meet you all before we start back in September. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Mr Keen and I have been working in Year 6 for the past 5 years. I thoroughly enjoy working in Year 6 as we cover some very interesting topics across the curriculum. However, the lesson I enjoy teaching the most is maths: I enjoy the challenge of solving problems and exploring all the different ways they can be achieved. I hope you all have a great summer and are all ready for a challenge and the start of Year 6 in September.

Mr Collinson

As for my new class starting in September, welcome to Year 6! This will be your last year at Fens, so make sure you enjoy it. I will be the Curriculum Support teacher in Year 6 and I will be teaching you all for PE as well. I can’t wait to meet you all and have a chat about the next year ahead. In the meantime, have a fantastic summer and I will see you all soon.

     

Mr Bryson

My name is Mr Bryson and I am looking forward to welcoming my new class of children into Year 6 in September. As a teacher, I have always believed strongly that there should not be a choice between having fun, smiling and enjoying school against working hard, focusing on self-improvement and getting better at everything we do. We will work together to achieve all of these goals as we, initially, settle happily back into the classroom then move to work through our year of exciting, challenging topics that will make us think, discuss, learn and improve. Enjoy a fantastic summer everyone and we will look forward to seeing you in September. 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Parents, Carers and Year 6 Pupils,

As the Summer term continues, we would like to give children, continuing their home learning journey, the opportunity to complete the same work as the children returning to school.

The aims of the work over the next few weeks will be to:

  • Re-establish routines that will prepare children for secondary school
  • Revise key concepts so that children can 'hit the ground running' in September  

As well as making use of our email system, we will post daily English, Maths and Afternoon work in the grids below with direct links to resources. The children can let us know how they get on through email.

We appreciate that this more structured approach may take some readjusting to, so please be reassured that we will all work together to prepare the children for their transition to secondary school, one step at a time. 

The links to daily online lessons below will continue as well as links to Espresso to give the children freedom to explore areas of interest if they wish - they can also let us know the areas of learning that they are enjoying most.

We hope you and the children continue to find this page useful,

Thank you again,

The Year 6 Team

SPELLING - Updated 01/06/2020

Below are the Year 3 & Year 4 AND the Year 5 & Year 6 spelling lists for revising before secondary school. There is also a list of related activities to help with practising. You could have a go at one activity a day which should only take 5-10 minutes. Learning and revising spellings each day in 'short bursts' is a proven effective strategy.

Espresso Suggestions **New This Week**

  • Science: Beyond Planet Earth - Inspired by last week's SPACE X shuttle launch, we would like you to take a tour of the universe through this Espresso module. You could use recycled materials to make your own space shuttle, moon buggy or space station. Then create a front page for a newspaper. Use your creativity to share any information you learn about the universe and the SPACE X mission. Enjoy! 

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/primary_uk/subject/module/frontscreen/item1134723/grade2/index.html?source=subject-Science-KS2-Science-Resource%20types

Newsround Story on SPACE X Launch:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52526849

  • History: Mayan Civilization - Refresh your learning around the Mayans. You could complete a history fact file to teach a family member. Enjoy creating some Mayan artwork. Why not write a Newspaper article about a key event from Mayan times? Design a Mayan Timeline to help you teach others. Work through the learning module on Espresso and get your creativity flowing!

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/primary_uk/subject/module/frontscreen/item716572/grade2/index.html?source=subject-History-KS2-History-Resource%20types

  • PE: Activity Challenge - see if you can keep active throughout the week using these activity challenges.

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/modules/t2_activity_challenges/index.html?source=subject-PE-KS2-PE-Resource%20types

  • Art & Design: Meet artists and see how a local landscape can inspire their work. An ideal source of inspiration for artwork based on our local area. Let your creativity run wild!

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/modules/t2_sense_place/index.html?source=subject-Art%20and%20design-KS2-Art%20and%20design-Resource%20types

  • Geography: Rivers - explore the module and complete the activities. You could then complete further research on famous rivers from around the world. Find them on a map. Sketch landmarks that can be found near them. Create a PowerPoint or poster to teach a family member.

  • Science: Electricity - work your way through the module. Enjoy the videos. Teach a family member. Create a report/ presentation/ poster/ sketch that helps you explain what you have learned.

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/primary_uk/subject/module/frontscreen/item1043858/grade2/index.html?source=search-all-all-all-all&source-keywords=electricity

  •  Computing: E-safety - enjoy working through the module. Challenge yourself with the activities. Teach an adult how to stay safe online (think how many people in the world will be using the internet to communicate at this time). Present your learning to a family member however you like.
