Hi Y6, 

The above is a timetable that we will be following whilst we’re in this new period of lockdown. This format will be slightly different from the last time (when we were isolating) as I will still be in school with some of your classmates and will be teaching live from the classroom! 

As it was before, it's important that you are ready for each session on time and with the correct equipment; some of you collected exercise books from school when they were offered to you so please use them as much as possible! Each session will also need a pen/pencil, a ruler and any other stationary you can think of! Remember to check the timetable too as you will need some kind of PE kit for PE sessions! 

Although working on Microsoft Teams won't be the same as when we're together in class, I know from experience how good you are at home learning. It may be a difficult few weeks away from your classmates but I'm sure we will all be together again soon! 

Take care everyone, 

Mr Minchin

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

Mathematics

In our maths lessons this week we will be continuing to work on algebra! After focusing on the rules of algebra last week, we will begin with a little bit of recap before moving on to expressions and formulae! As always, the majority of the resources needed for the lessons are posted below. The links will be really useful to cement your understanding and help you if you're feeling a little bit stuck!

English

In English this week, we will be continuing our work on non-chronological reports. On Friday 5th February, we started to draft out our work; from Monday this week we will be completing our drafts. Later on in the week, we will use computers (or alternative devices) to type up our non-chronological reports, complete with graphs, data and glossaries! There are some resources below that will help you structure your work.

RE

Over previous weeks we have been focusing on our upcoming Confirmation service. We have spoken a lot about the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit and how these can influence and shape our lives in the future. This week, we will be thinking about writing prayers to the Holy Spirit after reading prayers involved in Confirmation. We will be asking the Holy Spirit to act as a guide throughout the rest of our lives.

Gospel Reading from Sunday 07.02.21

Today we hear about how Jesus healed people who were sick. Many people who were ill came to Jesus and he made them better. Who makes you feel better when you are sick? Let’s think some more about healing today.

 

Mark 1: 29-39

  

Jesus and his disciples, including James and John, left the synagogue and went straight to the home of Simon and Andrew. Simon's mother-in-law was sick in bed with a fever, and as soon as Jesus arrived, he was told about her. He went to her, took her by the hand, and helped her up. The fever left her, and she began to wait on them.

After the sun had set and evening had come, people brought to Jesus all the sick and those who had demons. All the people of the town gathered in front of the house. Jesus healed many who were sick with all kinds of diseases and drove out many demons. He would not let the demons say anything, because they knew who he was.

Very early the next morning, long before daylight, Jesus got up and left the house. He went out of the town to a lonely place, where he prayed. But Simon and his companions went out searching for him, and when they found him, they said, “Everyone is looking for you.”

But Jesus answered, “We must go on to the other villages round here. I have to preach in them also, because that is why I came.”

So he travelled all over Galilee, preaching in the synagogues and driving out demons.

 

Reflection:

Simon’s mother-in-law is sick. She has a fever and is in bed. Jesus arrives at the house, takes her by the hand and helps her out of bed. Immediately she feels better.

Later that day lots of people who were ill came to the place where Jesus was. Some of them may have travelled a long way. Jesus helped them all, curing them and making them feel better.

What do you think this story tells us about Jesus?

Jesus cared for people and wanted to help them. He was able to make people well again because he is God’s son. When people saw what he could do, they believed in him.

 

When was the last time that you were sick? How did you feel? Who helped you and made you feel better? What did they do to make you feel better?

This last year has been a difficult one, but we have all been doing what we can to try to help ourselves and others to stay well and stop the coronavirus from spreading.

 

What have you done to help yourself and others to stay well?

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Science

  This week in science we will be finishing off our topic on the human body! We will be researching a famous scientist (William Harvey) and will also be completing our end-of-unit assessments. I've uploaded some links below to help you research Harvey ready for our lessons this week! Look back at some of the previous links to help revise for our end-of-unit test too!

Geography

This week in geography we will be continuing (and sadly finishing!) our work on natural disasters and extreme earth. We will be learning about tsunamis this week, about how they're caused and the major impact they can have on human and physical geography. At the end of the week we will be completing an end of unit assessment about the topic.

PE

In school we have been looking at striking and fielding games for PE, with a focus on cricket. As we are unable to do this at home, once again we will be utilising the brilliant Joe Wicks and his 'PE With Joe' sessions. These are uploaded daily and 30 minutes of exercise per day is a very reasonable target! I've uploaded a few links for you to follow, though new sessions will continue to be uploaded.

Obviously you can do alternative forms of exercise at home! We are able to go for walks and runs or create our own HIIT circuits to complete alone, with siblings or even as a whole family! Please let me know what you've been doing to stay active at home!

As you all know, this half term we have been learning about the language of coding. This 'language' has become global and could be the most important language in the future! Last week, we started coding using Javascript by programming our own dance party; this week we will be extending our knowledge of Javascript through some challenges online. Check out the links below and dive into the world of computer programming!

Please remember to send your work through at the end of each day so that I can check how you're getting on and maintain the brilliant progress you've made so far this year!!

 

Keep safe and I'll hopefully see you all soon!
