Wednesday 22nd April
There are new websites that are offering online learning one of which is https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom. One of the lessons for today is on Charles Darwin and as you have been learning about his life and achievements, this website may help you with the tasks set on Purple Mash. They also have Math and English tasks for you to try. Yesterday there was a Spanish lesson, which some of you may want to try and learn. Also you might want to have a look at this website as this has online learning for you too.
Free Audible Stories
For as long as schools are closed, Audible Stories are open. Starting today, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids.
All stories are free to stream on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet.
Please login to your MyMaths account to see which lessons have been set each day for the next two weeks until the end of term. Below there are maths study guides to help you understand different concepts. I can also recommend the You Tube videos called Maths Antics as these are great at explaining maths ideas you may be finding tricky.

In addition to working through the class book, short texts and questions will be added here weekly for reading comprehension practice. Furthermore, there will be grammar and writing tasks to complete on Purple Mash.
Writing with inspiration
Every week I will put up a new link to a document which comes from a website called Pobble 365. There will be an interesting picture which will help provide inspiration for writing every week. There is a story starter, questions, sentence challenges and other activities to complete.
This term and moving forward into next, Year 6 have been reading Street Child by Berlie Doherty. Over the next coming weeks, could you encourage your child to complete the reading of the text-preferably reading a chapter a day if possible-and answer the comprehension questions which can be found in the document attached.
Once the children have completed reading Street Child, we will set an activity to be completed from the Read and Respond textbook (which is attached as a PDF). For example, complete activity 1 'Not just nouns' on page 19.
Our next Science unit is all about 'Animals including Humans'. Please check back here each week as a new lesson will be released with activities for you to learn at home.
Outlined below is an overview of the spellings for the next few weeks that the children should be learning. It would be great if someone at home, either yourself or an older sibling, could test your child on the spellings for the allocated week. These spellings are also available on Spelling Shed to practise.
I will be setting some work too so check your 2todo list or please feel free to just explore the Computing section of Purple Mash. I have also set up a Computing Learning Display Board so it would be great to share some of your work with everyone too.
If you wish to explore the world of Computing further you could try the links below. They are both websites recommended for Computing and free to use but always check with an adult that they are happy too before you log on.
