Welcome to 6L!
Your teacher is Miss O'Neill!
Sports day 2020!
On Wednesday 8th July we are going to hold a mini sports day with the children during their PE session in school and we would like YOU at home to join in with us!
The activities are as follows:
Standing long Jump – no run up:
You must jump from 2 feet to 2 feet – measure from take off point to your heel where you land.
Speed bounce over cones or a line:
How many times can you jump keeping your feet together sideways over a barrier in 20 seconds?
Lay out/make 3 hoops (approx 3m,5m,7m away from you) and attempt to throw one bean bag (or something similar e.g. socks) into each.
Throw a 4 ball as far as possible using only a chest push motion. No turning or twisting body – 2 hands on the ball – must come from chest.
10 x 10 metres – how quickly can you complete this? (measured in seconds)
Please be creative if you do not have exactly the correct equipment e.g. draw chalk circles instead of hoops, use a pair of socks instead of a beanbag, etc.
Let us know how you get on by sending us your results via Purple Mash or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). You could even send us a video of yourself completing these activities!
Children in Year 6 are currently preparing for their transition to Secondary School. This week, their task was to give a child in a similar situation to them advice about starting a new school in September. Lots of Year 6 gave some excellent advice, but Ikram's stood out as being extremely clear, well written and above all, incredibly helpful for Sam! (and of course any other children in the same situation). Well done Ikram!
This half term, we are giving you one task - to
Read anything you like. Read with your family. Read before bed. Read in the sunshine (while social distancing). Read something different. Read to your dog.
But make sure you read every day.
Have a lovely half term Year 6!

I hope you are all staying safe and happy.

Easter Holiday Homework
We have set some work for children to get on with during the easter holidays. These tasks can be written on paper or completed online (Purple Mash).
The literacy/numeracy work (either typed up or pictures of handwritten work) can be sent to the teacher via 2email on Purple Mash or using the email address email@example.com
Computing work will be set on Purple Mash.
Literacy - Oh no! Aliens have just landed on your roof. Write a short story about what happens next!
Numeracy - Design a help sheet/poster on everything you know about fractions! The best posters will be displayed in classrooms this year and next, to help the Year 5 children when they enter Year 6. If you do a great job, your legendary work will live on after you have left and help many children in years to come!
Computing - Coding activity (set on Purple Mash). When you log into Purple Mash, click on '2dos' and the two challenges await you.
Reading - Please note that children should continue to read and record this in their reading journals.
After the easter holidays the website will be once again updated with weekly work, so please do keep checking the website.
Thank you all so much for all your co-operation during these unprecedented times. I hope you all stay safe and healthy over the easter holidays.
