Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 home learning page!

Hello Year 6,

Mr Brown here. I just wanted to leave you all a little message to wish you all the very best of luck with the next few weeks. Though it may seem a little strange being away from school and your friends again, it won’t be for long and we will all be back together sooner than you think. Please talk to those around you, including each other, if you have any worries or concerns, or ask your mum or dad to send me an email using the address below and I will reply to you as soon as I can. It is so important to talk through any issues you might have, so that you can try to put your mind at rest. Remember: we will get through this!

I’ve attached a photo of Pumpkin, my new kitten, to keep you guys smiling – he’s so little and he’s SO fluffy! 🙂

…And here he is on Sunday night, helping me plan my lessons at my laptop!

A new week, a new picture – this time of Pumpkin making himself comfortable on some English books!

Okay, on with the home learning!

Below, you will find the most current home learning. Our expectation is that children complete one piece of English and one of Maths each day as far as possible, along with a topic activity from the other curriculum areas: Science, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Computing, Music, French, PE, RE, or PSHE. Try to keep reading each day, recording your details in your reading record – or use some blank paper if your record is at school.

IMPORTANT – You are still more than welcome to use the Year 6 homework address, year6@obhomework.co.uk, to email photos/scans of your child’s work. However, I would like you to try and use Teams to do this, this week. We are hoping to use Teams for home learning across the rest of the school in the future and I want to see how the different features of this program work for you, our children and parents, so that we can use any feedback to improve people’s experiences.

If using a laptop/desktop:

In Teams, click ‘Files’ at the top of the screen, or Click ‘Upload’ > ‘Files’ > ‘Class Materials’ > then select, English, Maths or Topic. Then click the ‘Pupils’ home learning’ folder and add your work into here. Then click ‘Upload’ to select a file that you want to share.

If using a smartphone:

In Teams, click ‘General’ underneath ‘OBPS Hyenas Class’ > ‘General’ > ‘Files’ > ‘Class Materials’ > then select English, Maths or Topic. Then click the ‘Pupils’ home learning’ folder and add your work into here. Then click ‘+ Add’ to select a file that you want to share.

Then pop a message in the Teams chat to let me know you’ve sent your work to me.

For example, if you send me your English work on Tuesday, you might say:

“Hello Mr Brown, here is a photo of my English work from Tuesday 24th November. Thanks, from [your name].”

As mentioned, feel free to still use the homework email system, but do give the Teams program a try this week! 🙂

Here are my plans for the week beginning Monday 23rd November. Please note that we are all due back in class this Friday 27th November.

Spelling test – Monday – Ask an adult to test you on last week’s spellings (words ending in -ably). Get them to read the word, the word used in a sentence, then the word again. Ask them to read all 10 words once more at the end of your test, then mark your work and work out your score. Send me a photo of your sheet so I can see how well you’ve done! 🙂
