Choose which one you want to do and time yourselves 30 minutes, write down your score, then next week you can compare them. Remember anything over 20 is a good score, anything 25 or over is a great score.

Hello! Today is World Environment Day. In school we are thinking about all the things we can do to help the planet- using less plastic, recycling where possible, walking instead of driving. We are going to create a poster to show how we can look after our planet. We would love to see your creations. Post them on the Parent Forum and I can share them with the children who are in school.

Hello there Year 6 !  Well done for KC and JP getting Year 6's Star of the Week !

I have been impressed with KC's work I have seen on the Facebook forum and JePo has had a go at all of the tasks set on PurpleMash.

Well done too to EW and NF for the work you have been doing at home.  (NF: I loved your work on mythical creatures . . . you included Big Foot and the Loch Ness Monster.  Cool !  EWi: good girl for having a go at the fractions work.  I hope you have remembered all of the different strategies we use !)

I have been trying to get to grips with using PurpleMash this week and I have managed to add some little tasks on the 6JT page.  Well done to the following pupils in 6JT who have completed all of the tasks set: ES, AG, SG, FL, JP and these pupils who have done some of the tasks set: IT, HA, LP, LEB, EW, EW.

There are lots of tasks to do on SPAG.com as well. 

If you cannot access anything just email the school and we can get back to you with log in details etc.  I am in school on Tuesdays and Thursdays so on those days you could ring school and I (should) be able to sort you out.  (Mrs Sanders)

 

Week commencing: 11th May 2020 . . . SATs week !!!

Mrs Sanders here !  I hope you are all safe and well.  Well today would have been the start of SATs week.  We would have been ready to sit down (after a delicious breakfast in the Community Room) and do our very best in the tests.  However, life has taken a bit of a detour and the plans we once had have all changed somewhat.  Go to the SATs information page and read the poem I have found on the internet.  I would love to talk about your return to Heron Cross but the truth is we still don't know when and how.  Rest assured we are all thinking of you and your families and missing you lots.  

P.S Thank you to the pupils who have sent letters to school.  It is so lovely to hear from you xxx

This week I have organised some cross curricular work on one of my favourite Michael Morpurgo stories and I thought in maths, in addition to the White Rose Problem of the Day,  we would do some fractions revision and consolidation.  There may be the odd video clip if I can work out how to upload and where to look !! All of the daily tasks will be posted below this message.

15.05.20

Hooray . . . it's FRIYAY !   I hope that you and your families are all ok.  

In maths we will conclude the fractions revision with work on dividing fractions.  Watch the video and have a go at the worksheet; there are 10 on fractions and 5 on simplifying (improper to mixed).  See what you can do !

Good morning Year 6 !  The sun is shining and it's nearly the weekend. Hooray ! 

I am in school again today so Jack is happy as there isn't anyone breathing down his neck when he's doing his school work !

For maths today we are moving onto multiplying fractions.  There is, of course, a little video to remind you of the process and a word document with the calculations.  Don't worry if you cannot print it out - just write the answers down in a notebook or even type them in the answer box and save the document.  The main thing is that you are having a go and revising the methods we have worked on over the year.

7/5/20

Hi everyone! As you may know, tomorrow is VE Day! It has been so lovely to see so many activities already being completed for VE day, I have seen a lot of bunting and even some baking to show celebration for this day!

                   

''Victory in Europe Day/ VE Day took place on May 8th 1945. It was a public holiday and day of celebration to mark the defeat of Germany by the Allied forces in World War 2. VE Day marked the formal conclusion of the war with Germany and brought to an end six years of suffering, courage and endurance across the world.

People ran out on to the streets, hanging bunting and banners and dancing. People organised impromptu street parties, shared rationed food with the neighbours and listened to the wireless for updates.''

Your task:

Over the next two days, we would like for you to create a newspaper article about VE day and the end of World War 2. Remember to include the 5 Ws: who, what, where, when, why. Your article should also be in past tense. You may wish to complete this on purple mash (I have sent you all a '2do' for the activity) or write it on paper and think of a catchy headline.

Thanks to those who sent their quizzes in yesterday, we will complete them and hopefully get the answers back to you to mark! For today's task, we would like for you to create a dictionary of any tricky/important vocabulary you have found during this topic or in our 'Rainforest Calling' book. You might want to include words such as: Amphibians, Ecosystem, Endangered or Nocturnal. It's up to you! Remember that a dictionary is shown in alphabetical order. Once you have completed this, please share it with us! Can you find a word that we are unaware of? You know how we love to discover new words in Year 6!

Hi everyone! I hope you are still enjoying our 'Rainforest Calling' ebook! I thought it would be a great idea to test how much we have all learned about rainforests since the start of this year...teachers included! I would love for you to create a quiz for us teachers to complete. You could take a picture of this and ask your parents to share on our facebook, twitter or instagram page. You might want to include multiple choice...or not! It's totally up to you. So, it's time for you to test us! We look forward to seeing them.

Hi everyone, I cannot believe it is May already! I am really enjoying our new book 'Rainforest Calling', I hope this has reminded you of lots of key facts and encouraged you to find out even more! 

For your task today, I would love for you to think about how much we rely on the rainforest. Please take a look online to find out what materials or ingredients are taken from the rainforest for us to use. Then, think about what you have done today, what have you eaten? Make a list of materials or foods that you have relied on today. Twinkl has some fab fact cards! Please share these with us, I am going to make a list too! (Hint - we rely on the rainforest for chocolate! Miss T's favourite).

Hi, we are going to continue with our rainforest theme today; I hope you enjoyed reading the story, reading is so important so if you only do one thing today, read.

ENGLISH                                                                                          

I would like you to look at the layers of the rainforest today. There is a link to a worksheet below but you can make your own poster or get creative and make a model of the rainforest- get your family involved, you could all work together to create a masterpiece! It doesn't have to be completed today either, all of these tasks can be completed at your own pace.

Remember to send a photo, we love seeing your work.

Finally, it is  INTERNATIONAL DANCE DAY today. You know we all love a dance in Year 6 (especially Mrs Buttery!) so put some music on really loud and dance, dance, dance! You could choreograph a dance with your sibling- pretend you are on BGT, who knows, you might even get the Golden Buzzer! Have fun, laugh and enjoy yourself. 

I'm off to bake a cake for E's birthday tomorrow whilst dancing around my kitchen! Wish me luck! I haven't got Mrs Buttery to help me! I will post a photo tomorrow!

Hi there Year 6 !  Happy Monday to you all xx  Mrs Sanders here . . . 

I have opened up some more tasks on SPAG.com.  (example tests D, E and F)

Example tests B and C were set up on 11th March and only 13 and 8 pupils respectively have completed them.

Each test has 50 questions and quizzes you on all areas of grammar and punctuation.  They are a really useful resource to use to practice and revise the key terms.  If you have misplaced your log in details or cannot get on please contact me at school tomorrow or email heroncross@heroncross.org.uk and I will let you know your details.

Good morning, we hope you are all well, on another beautiful sunny day. Mrs Rathbone has been doing lots of gardening- well weeding!

We like to go off timetable from time to time to celebrate a special event and today we are going to celebrate Earth Day- Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated worldwide, to demonstrate support for protecting our earth. this year the theme is climate action.

We would like you to complete the comprehension on Earth Day:

/sites/default/files/Earth%20Day%202020.pdf?451

There are three different opitons on the link and we would like you to complete either the two stars or three stars sheet.

Answers are here too but don't look at them until you have completed it! You don't have to print it off, just have a go a writing the answers on a sheet of paper or discuss the answers with someone you live with.

After you have completed the comprehension it would be lovely if you could create something associated with Saving our Earth. I know MH in NR painted a lovely poster on this subject (it's on our classroom wall) You could design a poster to put in your window, find some facts from the comprehension and write them on your poster.

Search Earth Day and you will find many videos and activities to keep you busy.

Also, if you head over to the Earth Day website, they have more information and a live stream happening today:  https://www.earthday.org

We would love you to send us photos of what you have created.

If we were at school, we would have completed some beautiful pages for our Topic Books maybe you could create something of your own.

Remember to try and get outside today and celebrate our wonderful Earth.
