Week Commencing July 13th

 

We have really enjoyed seeing all of you for these final few weeks. We cannot believe that this is your final week at Birchgrove Primary School. To remember your time here we thought that it would be a good idea to create a presentation filled with your Birchgrove Memories. You can decide what it includes and how you would like to present it. Adobe Spark is one way which will be quite effective. Below are some ideas you may want to think about.

  • Your favourite memory.
  • Funniest moment.
  • Friends you have made on your learning journey.
  • Your favourite topics.
  • How you are feeling about moving onto high school.
  • What you are going to miss most about Birchgrove, 

 

We look forward to seeing your completed presentations. 

Thank you for being such a fab year group. We wish you all the best for your future adventures.

 

Mrs Hughes and Mr Volk

 

Week Commencing July 6th

 

We are looking forward to seeing you all again this week. Below you will find some home learning stars to keep you busy and also keep a look out for the school link star. This will be updated with topic related work and Maths work that will follow on from what we teach in school on Monday.

We have been busy in school this week sorting out our classrooms ready for some of you to return to school. For those of you not returning we will be putting the work up we have worked on during the week on Friday, keep a look out for more information on the school link star. We will continue to set home learning tasks as usual. 

 

We are so excited to see all your faces. Remember the only things that you need to bring in from home are a coat, your lunch and a water bottle. You each have your own packs ready for you when you attend on your designated day. 

 

See you next week laugh

 

Mrs Hughes and Mr Volk

 

Week Commencing June 22nd

Please complete these questionnaires (below) with your families and send them back to your teachers. We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back to school and this information will help us to get the right activities ready for you.

We hope that you all had a lovely Easter break and enjoyed the lovely weather -with lots of garden fun! We are missing you terribly and hope that you are all keeping safe and well.

 

We can't believe it is the summer term already. This is definitely not how we planned to start but we will do our best to share some interesting tasks with you. Our new topic is called Skin Deep. 

 

Over the next two weeks we would like you to work on the following challenges.

 

Challenge 1 

We would like you to carry out a research project on the main organs of the body and their function. Be as creative as you like.

 

Challenge 2

You live in a land where most people have green skin. As a non-green you are not allowed to vote, attend the same school as greens, ride on the same bus as greens, eat in the same cafes as greens or even use the same toilets as greens.

Write a formal letter to your town's MP asking them to support a change in the law to abolish the segregation, write about the effect it is having in you and others and what it would mean to you if change did not happen. 

You must use the correct layout, clearly organise your writing and include fact, opinions and reasoning as appropriate. You must use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation.

 

Please share your challenges with us via email, twitter or flip grid. 

 

Your daily maths investigations and comprehension tasks will also be making a return. Please could you ensure that you are completing your Mathletics and Kidzblogs. We are already looking forward to reading what your blogs will be about. We would also love to see what you are all doing and would like it if you could Tweet us with your pictures of you doing work or any fun activity!

 

IT challenge

This weeks IT work is to complete lesson 1 of Kodu where you can begin to create a Mario World. This is all live on the IT section of the website.  Have fun!

 

Lets get the brain working with a riddle...

 

I’m tall when I’m young, and I’m short when I’m old, what am I?

 

Have a lovely day!

Mrs Hughes and Mr Volk

Week 2

 

Hello everyone we really hope that you had a lovely Easter and are continuing to enjoy the 'holiday,' and staying safe. Below are some more challenges for you to work through during this second week. 

 

Challenge 1

You have £5000 to spend on a holiday. You are a family of 5 including three children aged 10, 12 and 15. Remember you need to think about flights, accommodation and car parking. You can go anywhere in the world. The holiday just needs to be £5000 or less. You will need to show breakdown of all the costs.

 

Challenge 2

You have been asked to shop and make a delicious meal for a family of 4. You have £30 to make either a one course or two course meal. Show your price list and your recipe. Maybe you could even make this for your own family. 

 

Challenge 3

You are a garden designer and during 'lockdown' you have decided to make some changes to your own garden. You have an unlimited amount of money. Think about your own family what changes would you make to your garden to keep everyone in your family busy and happy. Share your design. Remember to clearly label what you are creating. 

 

Challenge 4

You are a reporter and have been asked to write about a happy event that has occurred

in the world over the last week. Your job is to make sure everyone reading your article has a big smile on their face by the time they finish reading it. 

 

Challenge 5

You have been given £100,000 to give to any local charity or international charity. What charity would you give the money to and why? What do you believe the benefit of giving the charity this money would be?

 

We really hope you enjoy working through some of these challenges. Don't forget to tweet or email us your completed work.

Easter Holiday

Week 1

 

The Year 6 team would like to thank all parents and carers for supporting the children to complete many of the tasks we have set over the past two weeks.

During the Easter holiday we are going to set a number of different tasks that you can pick and choose to complete as and when you wish. 

 

Art Task

Both Year 6 classes are familiar with 'Rhiannon art.' We would like you to create an 'Easter inspired' piece of art in Rhiannon's style. Think about what Easter means to you and let your creative juices flow. You could include:-

  • Easter bunnies
  • Chocolate Eggs
  • Easter hunt clues
  • Religious emblems

We would love for you to share these with us via twitter. 

 

Literacy Task

A blog has been set which also has an Easter theme. Log on to find out your challenge. We will look forward to reading and commenting on these over the next two weeks.

 

Maths Task

It is really important that you continue to achieve your 2500 points on Matheletics. New challenges have been set.

 

 

We will continue to add to these tasks. If any of you have any ideas that you would like to do, feel free to email us and we can share your ideas on here with your year group. 

Happy Easter Year 6
