Good morning Year 6. As you are aware, we are back on home learning. In the mornings, I would like you to complete the Maths and English lessons set. If you have a printer, you can print the maths sheets. If not- don't worry- just write your answers on paper. Send me a dojo and let me know how you are getting on (and what your best Christmas present was)
We work hard to support children’s learning outside the classroom and recognise that technology provides an incredible opportunity to support work in class and enable children to develop very important independent skills and habits.
We have invested in a number of subscription-based online tools that will enable your child to continue learning at home with the aid of a computer, tablet or smartphone. Below are some of the best of these tools.
Read Theory is a wonderful tool to help children develop their reading skills, with short comprehension based activities and a wealth of topics to learn about. After an initial assessment, your child will be given texts to read appropriate to their reading level.
Spelling Shed forms the backbone of our spelling curriculum. There are weekly spelling lists that group spellings so that we can teach the rules that apply to them. Spellings are grouped together and after logging in, a child can play games to practise spelling words at their stage. Simply click on the button in the top right and click ‘Web Game’. Website: www.spellingshed.com
Manga High is a wonderful tool for learning mathematics, fully paid for by FROSTYs. After logging in, children can click the ‘wand’ tool and be given challenges and games that suit their needs. Going for ‘gold medals’ is the highest you can achieve (although be warned: this takes perseverance and effort!) You can also search for areas that you need to improve on and play brilliant games that support your learning! (NOTE: our school code is 68218)
Times Tables Rock Stars is all the rage at St. Teresa’s at the moment. Choosing your ‘rock’ avatar and then playing a series of games to practise times tables against the clock and other opponents really sharpens your skills. Don’t worry about having them written in front of you while you work. This will only help embed them. We want children to know times tables by memory, without having to work them out. This game really works! Website: www.ttrockstars.com
General curriculum resources
Espresso really is one of the best digital resources we have in school. It has a wealth of videos, quizzes, activities, worksheets etc. on it and can be accessed at home. Start a module about the solar system! Or find out about the Tudor times! You have access to an amazing number of subjects and activities at the click of a button.
We are going to begin a 2 week block on newspaper reports, using the Oak Academy resources. This week's lessons focus on reading skills and identifying key features of a newspaper. Next week we will be writing newspaper reports based on Harry Potter extracts.
