FRIDAY 27TH MARCH 2020
Today we are going to be drafting a report on an animal from the Rain Forests of South America. I've put together a slide show and I'd like you to look that over. Then I'd like you to review the documents attached. You will have noticed that during the week, I've asked you to find out about some of the animals of this region. Today, you are going to produce your own animal report on the creature of your choice. Have you ever heard of the Pootoo bird? The only rule is that it has to be an animal found only in South America.
I've included some links to a Youtube film which shows you how to illustrate some of these creatures.
These materials are provided for all Yr 6 Pupils at South Wootton Junior School. These pupils have been granted to our School Email system and are welcome to submit finished work and seek guidance from teaching staff, should they need help.
Parents from other schools are very welcome to download these materials and make use of them.
TO ACCESS EACH DAY, SIMPLY SCROLL DOWN. THE OLDEST ENTRIES ARE AT THE BOTTOM.
Who needs teeth, when you've got intelligence?
If you have any questions about this, just get in touch with me through the usual channels.
You will notice that I've sent out an email asking you just to open but not reply. I'm just running a test to see who is on-line and try to work out who's having problems.
Maths will follow from Ms Bland shortly. Please remember to only use the FRIDAY ANY QUESTIONS? Email chain. Can I also ask that you keep your emails to a minimum.
I will try to get the last of the Film Review feedback reports out to you. Thank you to all those who agreed to share. It was a great pleasure working with you this week.
Reading your Accelerated Reader - If you have a younger brother or sister, or a pet, try reading to them. Brodie is a sucker for Detective Stories
Hit the Button - Halves. Try to keep going until you get over 30 on one section before moving on. Challenge your parents!
Do some Research on the Titanic. You never know when you might need it (as in next week!).
The answers for the Spelling Crosswords are also shown above. Next week we will be trying out some new words, all linked to our topic. Have a good day and thank you, again, for all of your hard work. Best wishes, Mr Taylor.
THURSDAY 26TH MARCH 2020
I'll start by echoing Ms Bland's message yesterday. I have never been more proud of a Yr 6 group than I am of you all. I have been stunned by how mature, confident and independent you have all been. I've taught some good kids in years gone by, but you take the prize! I hope someone gives you some recognition for what you've done when this is over. You deserve it.
See the attached worksheet from Ms Bland, below.
WED 25TH MARCH 2020- YR 6 GROUP WORK FOR TODAY
Good Morning All,
By now I will assume that you have all tried the Joe Wicks Workout. If not, stop reading and Youtube it!
Back again? Good. Here is the schedule for today:
MATHS: Maths work will follow shortly. I'm just putting the last pieces together. Not to worry because English is big!
Brodie has been busy. See her second draft, above, which shows you the standard you need to work towards in Yr 6. She asked me to thank you all for your input. You will see little ideas of yours all through the work. Thank you. Don't forget, it is not just a summary of the story. You have to tell me who directed it, who was in it, what the acting and special effects (if any) were like. Finally, I need you to tell me how it made you feel. If it is your favourite film you have to persuade me to want to see it. You are very welcome to type this out on a computer if you have one, or write it out and then send in a photo. I'd like to see what you've managed to do.
We will be using Spanish from time to time in our Emails, and so it is time to start revising those greetings. I've enclosed the Spanish Booklet (I know it is for Yr 4 -- but we are just beginners). I'd like you to practice the greetings, which you will find on Pages 3 and 4. If you can't print them, either type them out as a document or do this as a handwritten exercise on paper.
I would like you to read a chapter from your Accelerated Reader book to your parents. If they are not too busy, I’d be grateful if they could ask you some questions about your book.
What is it about? Who are the characters? Where is it set? How do you think it will end and why (you will need to use Point, Evidence and Explanation). If they are too busy, just read to yourself but think about having a mind map bubble to make notes. Our target is for you to be taking a quiz on Accelerated Reader, soon. Electronic books are coming your way in the near future.
Please email your teacher if you get stuck.
