6L – We have been busy enjoying another week of learning…

Art – Colour mixing & matching using the ‘Double Primary Palette’…

Using a “Double Primary Palette” means reducing the number of colours we work with. It doesn’t mean we are reducing the number of colours we can use. Using a warm and a cool version of each primary colour, plus white and turqoise, means we can mix the full range of hues! We will use these skills when painting our ‘Medusa’ inspired self-portrait.

Maths – identifying the properties of 3D shapes and creating nets…

Science – Investigating a question…Does the length of wire affect how components in a circuit work?

Year 6 – Home Learning 26.11.20

Hello Year 6,

We have been thinking about your Christmas performance this week. COVID-19 restrictions mean we are unable to enjoy many of the things we organise in the run up to the Christmas holiday but that doesn’t mean we won’t have fun. We can’t allow a global pandemic to stop us enjoying ourselves can we? 😁

Our Christmas performance will be virtual this year so you can enjoy watching our performance with your families at home. We need you to get started this weekend by learning the lyrics of this beautiful song.

Visit ‘My Maths’ to see your maths Home Learning. Your spellings are below. Links to your Home Learning can also be found in the ‘Home Learning’ channel on MS Teams.

Have a lovely weekend! Miss Lynch & Miss Felton 😊

Year 6 – Home Learning 19.11.20

Hello Year 6,

Here is this week’s Home Learning. We plan to use MS Teams in the future for our Home Learning but we know some of you are still having trouble accessing MS Teams so we will continue to use the blog until everyone can log in to MS Teams.

We are looking forward to seeing your work on the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. Don’t forget to practise your spellings and read.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! 😊

6L – 22 countries…

…celebrating cultural diversity in 6L

Our class is culturally diverse. We are made up of people from 22 countries all over the world! Each one of us is unique yet here we are, in our cosy classroom in Catford, enjoying our final year of primary school together. We feel quite lucky because we know not all children have the opportunity to be part of such a rich tapestry of cultures.

We decided to create individual heritage sheets to celebrate our unique identity. Using our heritage sheets to help us, we have been teaching each other about different aspects of our cultures.
We also enjoyed listening to traditional music from 22 countries as we worked and we discovered so much about each other that we didn’t know.

We are hoping to continue our cultural learning journey soon by sampling food from some of our 22 countries 😊


Year 6 – Football ⚽

Thursday afternoon saw the whole of Year 6 leave Holbeach and head to Ladywell Fields for some football training! This term, we plan to spend one afternoon per week at Ladywell Fields developing our footballing skills.

We were very excited as we don’t have many opportunities to leave school at the moment. The sky was blue, the sun was shining and we certainly enjoyed the chance to run around on the grass.

Our P.E. focus was dribbling this week; concentrating on controlling the ball, awareness of the space around us and moving continuously.

We are already looking forward to next week. Only 6 more days to go! 😁

Year 6 – Home Learning for Half Term

Hello Year 6!

We hope you have a really restful half term holiday – you have worked very hard over these past few weeks.

We would like you to log-in to MyMaths (please check the letter that was sent home for the log-in details).

https://www.mymaths.co.uk/

We have set you some homework on shape. Once you have done this, there are games to play and practice as well. Have fun!

We would also like you to learn and practise these spellings.

What do you notice about these words?

Can you make up a rule?

You could create a game or quiz your parents!

6L – We are scientists.

In Science, we have been discovering how we see and how light travels, enabling us to see objects around us. We learned that when rays of light reflect, they obey the ‘Law of Reflection’, creating two angles.

We wanted to know if this statement was true so we designed an experiment to test this claim. Here we are conducting our experiement.

Come back soon to see our results! 😊
