Red Arrows' Home Learning
Class teachers can be contacted by email:
Red Arrows: firstname.lastname@example.org
This email address will be checked regularly during school hours.
We will remove the day's tasks at 4pm at the earliest so if you think that you will need to work past 4pm, because of a late start, please download anything that you will need.
Please email us daily to very briefly outline what you have done and then send some photos of more extended pieces of work from the week on Fridays. If the photo is nice and clear, we will email feedback on any work that you send.
We will have a class meeting (for pupils) once a week. Please do your best to attend!
This week's meeting is on Wednesday 27th January at 1:30pm.
If you come across a problem during the school day, and no one at home can help, please email us and we will arrange a 1:1 Teams meeting as soon as possible to see if we can help.
REMEMBER: You must send us a quick check in email every school day and send us a good amount of examples of work once a week.
MAKE SURE you watch the videos we have made. They are to help you fully understand the lessons and tasks set. We can see how many views the videos get and it is clear that not everyone is watching them.
We have added some handwriting resources below for you to access if you have any spare time at the end of a lesson. To be the expected standard in writing, at the end of Year 6, you are supposed to use neat, consistently joined handwriting so it is definitely worth practising!
Watch my introductory video (below) before you have a go at the questions. You will then need to look the PDF below to find the questions and answers. You can either read them on the screen and write your answers on paper, or you can print them off and write directly onto the sheet.
Remember - LIVE GUIDE READING SESSION AT 9:30AM TODAY - Check if it is your group!
Spend 15 minutes on spellings everyday. You can chose which tasks to do when.
If you have any spare time, have a look at the statutory spelling lists below and see how many of the words you are able to spell. You can add any unknown words to your weekly list (a few words at a time). Do you know which spelling rule the word contains? Which strategies will you use to learn the word?
L.O. To find percentages of amounts.
Click here to watch the video before completing the tasks.
If you finish the maths work quickly, why not have a go at one of the challenges below. We will regularly add new challenges relating to the work that we are covering.
L.O. To express and explain my opinions.
Last week we learnt about the Declaration of Human Rights. Today we are thinking about which rights we think are more important to us. I expect you will all have different opinions.
Watch the video, then do to the task on the PowerPoint.
'Just Dance' to I Gotta Feeling as your warm up, then follow the Healthy Heart video and instruction sheet to improve your fitness.
Topic - Extra Activities
If you complete your topic tasks and have some spare time, you can look at the BBC Bitesize resources on Forces, which will support the work that we are doing.
Our text for this half term is 'The Boy who Swam with Piranhas' by David Almond. It is a fun but thought-provoking book that links to our 'Scream Machine' topic. We will post recordings of us reading the story everyday.
