This half term, I will let you know which subjects to cover each day on the daily page where you find Maths and English. Firstly, this should help you to plan your day. Secondly, this means there won't be any mix-ups for those of you who come in to school. We wouldn't want you having to do the same lesson twice!
However, please do remember the importance of physical activity, the outdoors and your well-being. It is not the end of the world if you miss something or shuffle the days around. As long as you try your best, Mrs Shaw, Mrs Leese and I will always be so proud of you.
For PSHCE, you'll need to adapt some of the activities. Instead of talking in a group, you might think about/ write down a time when you felt that way. If in school, we can't do the run to the wall activity due to social distancing so we might think of an action instead e.g. sad is curl up in a ball, angry is punch the air 3 times, happy is a star-jump.
For ART, you'll be doing an activity using cool and warm colours - if you don't know what these are, you'll need to look it up first.
Science> Evolution and Inheritance - I can and instructions can be found on the Powerpoint
Watch Newsround. Then create a drawing of the day's news - do one picture to represent what you've heard. Then add your own drawing for what you have done today - your own news.
I've added a picture example of using yesterday's news - all are pictures of the news stories plus my own news which is that I've been to school and that I made a carrot cake at the weekend. You can definitely do better than mine though - maybe even add some colour.
Each Wednesday afternoon will be Y6 dedicated research time. Research time is your chance to learn something new and to present what you learn in a way of your choice. The options are endless but I've tried to make a list of some ideas below - please feel free to share some more with me so I can add to the list. Who knows, you could inspire one of your friends.
1) Read the list below for ideas
2) Make a list of things you'd be interested in knowing more about
3) Create a plan for what you hope to accomplish in each week
4) Use the time wisely - make a goal and Beat IT!
Option 1: Make a big goal and use the next 6 weeks to complete it.
e.g. to build up to run 5km
to make a scrapbook about Space - or any history/science topic
to knit a jumper/bag
research your family tree
make a local wildlife documentary
learn a new language
Option 2: Choose smaller challenges and complete a different one each week
to learn the names of the capital cities in Europe
to cook a Mexican food dish
to make a face covering
make a card for someone
complete a poster about a period of history
do a factfile about an animal/ dinosaur

Transition Topic Lesson. Please see the PowerPoint and the activities in the workbook. Please do not feel you have to print the whole workbook as it's lots of paper - you can copy most of the activities into your books. If you are desperate for a hard copy, let me know and I will ensure I can have one ready for you to collect next week (8th June onwards).
