Year 6

Monday 27th April

 

Good morning Year 6! 

 

Doodle and Theme Parks!

 

Over the weekend, we have updated Doodle by adding new objectives for you to complete, so make sure that you keep working on your skills, especially in the 'Extras' section, and earning those stars! 

 

Our school home learning theme this week is 'Design and build your own theme park!'. We have attached a PDF document below, which has a few ideas for you to get started on this exciting mini-project.

 

Say 'Thank You to the NHS'

 

In addition to our school work, there is an exciting NHS competition which you can enter. Learn about NHS job roles and opportunities available and say a big 'thank you' for all of the work that they do. You can win prizes for yourself and for the school, including a £50 Amazon gift voucher and a Science trip!

For information about the competition, how to enter, the rules and the prizes, follow this link:

https://www.stepintothenhs.nhs.uk/primary-schools/KS2-competition?dm_i=5EPN,6ZOD,1WDJPZ,QSMP,1

For learning resources aimed at KS2 children, including important information about the different jobs within the NHS, how they help our communities, and stories from patients, follow this link:

https://www.stepintothenhs.nhs.uk/primary-schools/KS2-resources

 

As always, you can share your learning with us by emailing advice@mapledeneschool.com, or ask your parents to post your work on Mapledene's Facebook group.

 

Remember, if you don't have the resources to complete any 'theme park' work, the most important thing over the next few weeks is to keep reading at home, keep working on your arithmetic skills and spend some quality time with your loved ones. 

 

What should I do first?

1: Complete any outstanding Doodle Extras.

2: Complete the newly added Doodle Extras (On Wednesday, new 'Extras' will be added).

3: Check the 'Design and build your own theme park' Y6 project ideas below and choose an activity (or activities) to complete over the week.

Optional: Say 'thank you' to the NHS and submit your entry to the competition.

Optional: Share your hard work!

 

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing all of your hard work,

 

Miss Smith and Mr Barber

Well done on all of your hard work this week Year 6!  

 

We can see that you have been using Doodle lots; make sure that you continue to do your best at getting those daily stars! We would also encourage everyone to keep working hard on their Maths and Grammar packs. For those of you missing PE, Joe Wicks daily workout every morning on Youtube is a great way to start the day, and helps you to keep those fitness levels up!

 

Keep making time for yourselves and your family too - do things that help you to relax and enjoy the time with your loved ones!

 

We will try to update this page every week with anything new for you to have a go at during this time you have at home!

As part of our WW2 topic, Year 6 are constructing their own Anderson shelters in D&T. This afternoon, they had the opportunity to measure and saw the wood, so that the frames to the shelters can be made next week! Watch this space for more pictures from our exciting project... 

 

 

 

 
As part of our current topic on World War 2, Year 6 have been on a trip to the Coventry Transport Museum and Herbert Art Gallery. The children had first hand experience of a WW2 bomb shelter, as well as exploring the ruins of Coventry Cathedral. They also took part in a range of practical and drama based activities to do with WW2. Year 6 behaved and listened superbly throughout the trip and the staff at both centres were blown away by their knowledge of the War. Take a look at some of the pictures from the trip below...
