Please find the home learning grid for week beginning 18th May 2020.
I hope you are finding the maths easier with the videos to help you. Don't forget that you can email me if you need any help with anything. I am enjoying seeing all the photos of what you have been up to. I am amazed by how creative and imaginative you all are.
As usual, I have attached some English worksheets for you to use instead of the BBC Bitesize activities if you wish. I have tried to get them to match up as much as possible. Please email me if you have any queries: email@example.com
Hello year 6,
Here is the home learning for week beginning 11th May. Thank you for all of your messages and photos, it looks like you have been keeping busy and having a wonderful time. You all have so much creativity and enthusiasm during this difficult time.
I hope the maths on White Rose has been easier for you all to access with the videos to help explain the learning. As before, I have uploaded some alternative English worksheets if you prefer these to BBC Bitesize lessons. Remember to do as little or as much as you wish.
Keep safe and keep in touch, I really enjoy hearing from you all!
Look how wonderful these beautiful flowers are that one of our class members has made! They would definitely brighten up her house and cheer everyone up. Well done for the creativity and the lovely smile!
Here is one of our class members celebrating her birthday in Lockdown. We all hope you had a brilliant birthday despite the current situation.
Who else has had a birthday whilst being in lock down? I had mine back in April and it was actually really good fun and I was made to feel special.
Dear Year 6,
As SAT's week arrives, it is not quite the same,
The tests that were printed this year never came,
The displays all still up; walls full of maths 'rules',
But Year 6 very different, at present, in schools.
For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,
For others, a sigh of pure disbelief,
That you worked really hard in advance of this week,
Expected and Greater Depth marks did you seek.
Algebra, fractions, the times table drills,
Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,
Past present, progressive...and all the SPAG terms,
You've practised and mastered them over the years.
Fear not though, the SATs, yes, won't happen this term,
But remember tests don't measure everything you learn,
Primary subjects are varied; you've always tried your best,
And many of those skills that you've gained can't be defined by a test.
So, here at Brunel, you've made us so proud,
We sit here with pride ans we shout this out loud...
"Year 6 you amaze us, you've come incredibly far..
And we don't need a test to see how amazing you are!"
I have also attached a silly SATs maths reasoning paper if you feel you want to honour what should have been SATs week.
Take care year 6 and stay safe.
Miss Burton and Mr Knight
I wanted to share a photo of a wonderful tea party that someone for our class has made to celebrate VE Day 2020. Most of the cakes were made by the pupil using old recipes from war time. There is a fruit cake and some melting moments which look delicious. He also made his own lemonade!
Look at the wonderful research one of our class members has done about insects. The diagrams are so detailed and they have found out many interesting facts. I didn't know that a beehive can hold around 50,000 bees. No chance for social distancing there!
She has also been making masks out of cardboard in the sytle of anime characters. How creative and clever. I like how she has put the different layers on it and they are so colourful and bright.
Dear Year 6,
Hello! I hope you're all ok and, I really really hope, finding some special and happy moments amongst all the strangeness of being at home. Who would have thought that on that last day of school when we were eating cake, sharing sweets and talking about what might happen that this is how it would be? What are you liking most? What are you finding tricky?
Has anyone had any luck with their sunflower seeds? I was very excited about mine but suddenly they seem to be looking a bit unhappy. I am a bit worried about them to be honest and have out them into bigger pots to try and cheer them up. I have planted some vegetable and salad seeds too and even made a little vegetable patch but my giant puppy likes to jump over the fence and dig the soil so she is in the dog house, as the saying goes!
What have you been doing? What have you enjoyed? (And you musn't say school work for the second question because Miss Burton might hear you! Hee hee!) I have loved discovering new places on some of our daily walks. I have loved, loved, loved the lovely sunshine and I have loved having the time to play games, attempt pasty making with The Kernow King (Ed) who came to school before lockdown, read and do jobs that have been nagging me for ages. A long time ago, I bought several tins of garden paint. Now just about anything outside, that doesn't move or grow, has been painted! What I have NOT been loving is not being able to see YOU. Work with YOU. Talk with YOU. Laugh with YOU. It's been so quiet and strange and I miss you all so much.
What are you looking forward to most when lockdown is relaxed? Hopefully it wont be too long now and you will be able to see your friends again: can you imagine how exciting that will be? Stay safe everyone and take care. Love to you and your families,

Here is one of our Seaton class members who has been enjoying some time out whilst relaxing in her hot tub. It looks very peaceful and calm and a great way to enjoy the weather we have had.
She has also been busy baking and helping around the house. Here is a delicious pie she has made.
Seaton class have been spending their time by being creative. Can you spot the toilet roll earrings one of our class members has made? They are brilliant and she made a necklace to match. At the bottom, you can see a poster she has made too!
In the photo below, you can see her riding her bike whilst enjoying the fresh air. It's good to see so many of you getting daily exercise ad enjoying the weather.
I love the photo of the cat poking his head through the newspaper. It is the sort of thing that my cat would do and it made me giggle so much! Keep sending the funny photos of your pets to make everyone smile.
