UPDATED Year 6 FRENCH WB 18th May 2020

Week Beg 11.05.20

 

Hi Everyone. I hope you all managed to enjoy the extra day over bank holiday and celebrated the 75 years since VE day. I celebrated by having a socially distanced Street Party.

This week would of been SATS week but don't worry I'm not going to be setting you tests. Each of the activities that I set should take you at least 45 mins/1 hour. Remember, if you would like to do extra work then there is Mathletics and Literacy Tool Box to use. Some of the Maths work and other subjects on Bitesize Daily are from previous weeks. This is because they don't upload the work until the night before and I don't want to be setting work that isn't appropriate.

Keep up the hard work.

Mrs Hood

Week Beg - 04/05/20

 

Hi Everyone. I hope you are all still well and not too bored yet. Remember, this is a really good opportunity to be learning a new skill. I am looking forward to hearing all about them.

The good news is that Friday is Bank Holiday so I won't be setting any work for then. I'm going to set some more work from the BBC Bitesize Daily. Please note that the Maths activities are from the previous week as this weeks Maths is work that we have all ready covered since you have been home-schooling.

Parents/Children - I would be really grateful for any feedback on these resources. It is important that the children are doing some work each day but not stressing. I am aware that for some of you it can be a battle (believe me, I know as my daughters are home-schooling too). 45 minutes on each activity is enough as long as your child is trying their best. You can also top up the amount of work they do with Mathletics and Literacy Toolbox.

Take care of yourselves and I have my fingers crossed that I will see you all soon.

Mrs Hood

English Activities - 27.04.20

 

I am trying a new resource for this weeks daily English lessons. It provides the children with information/videos before the activity. It's a new resource that has been set up specifically for home-schooling so I would be really interested to have any feedback from parents or children on how they find it. Unfortunately, it only sets the English lesson the day before so I will have to add the activity on a daily basis (I'm hoping that this might change).
