Hellebore Home Learning

01/06/2020

 

Dear Hellebore,

 

We have arrived at the final half term of this unusual and unprecedented school year. I hope that you enjoyed your half term break and maybe some of you managed to get out into the sunshine safely.

The new timetable for this week is on google classroom and, as usual, three new tasks will be posted every day. Please make sure you are logging on if you do have access to a device. If you need help with passwords or there are any problems, ask your parents or carers to email us at year6@garfield.enfield.sch.uk but please remember that this is for parents and carers only – if pupils need to contact us they can do so using the stream in google classroom.

 

Mrs Siefert continues to provide us with music tasks. The song of the week is summer sounds song 4 Babthandaza.

Enfield Music Service continues to team up with Beat Goes On to provide daily body percussion sessions for Enfield pupils, and even if you’re not able to join them live at 10:30 each day, you can still check out the videos afterwards and have a go!

Monday 1st June – https://youtu.be/usR0xfzOIKs

Tuesday 2nd – https://youtu.be/Ahlr1WOK1HU

Wednesday 3rd – https://youtu.be/sHGoPWkSod8

There is also a special message from Mrs Siefert and YOUNG VOICES:

Join in with Young Voices on Tuesday 2nd June at 2.30pm!!

https://www.youngvoices.co.uk/powerinme

 

If you need any help with google classroom you can visit their support site at:

https://support.google.com/edu/classroom#topic=6020277

and if this does not answer your questions, either tell us your problem on the google classroom stream or ask your parents and carers to email us at the year 6 address above.

 

Please note that we are aware of the ongoing problem with the automatic marking of tests on google classroom. We always check each individual test and post the correct score. You do not need to tell us about this.

 

This week’s timetable:

The BBC continue to post daily lessons on their website at:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons

If you have completed your school work and would like more to do why not try them out.

The government has also set up some online learning at:

https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/schedule/#schedule

This also has three lessons per day, English maths and one other, so you could have a look at this too if you want to.

Don’t forget to keep reading: if you have run out of books at home and can access a device then there is a wide range of free books to listen to at https://stories.audible.com/discovery.

Keep active – Joe Wicks continues his daily PE lessons on YouTube and you can do them at any time of the day. 

 

You can message us and each other on the stream on google classroom at any time.

 

Your art task this week is linked to the work of the Little Angel Theatre in Islington, a puppet theatre which puts on shows mainly aimed at families. They have posted some fabulous performances online that you can watch for free. Each show is no longer than ten minutes, so do watch them – they are great fun!

This term we will continue our learning about the Maya. Your topic task this week is all about Maya food and some of it will be familiar to you, especially the tortillas and hot chocolate. You could try making your own tortillas – they are extremely easy! Watch this short video for a recipe, but remember to ask an adult for help when you cook the tortillas as working with hot pans can be dangerous

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFBNdidnx2g

 

The Maya made their hot chocolate in a very different way to us – you probably wouldn’t like it very much! The video link below is a combination of modern and ancient Maya methods and uses spices including chili. Give it a try if you are feeling adventurous! Remember to ask an adult for help before you start.

Also, please ensure that you are logging into your Bug Club account for your reading. I have checked your allocations again this morning and you all have an adequate number of texts to work your way through.

Dear Hellebore,

We have reached week 3 of the summer term. I hope that those of you observing Ramadan are finding new ways to share this special time with your loved ones and wider faith community during this extraordinary time.

The new timetable for this week is on Google classroom and, as usual, new tasks will be posted every day. Please make sure you are logging on if you have access to a device. If you need help with passwords ask your parents or carers to email us at year6@garfield.enfield.sch.uk but please remember that this is for parents and carers only – if pupils need to contact us, they can do so using the stream in Google classroom.

We understand that some of you may have problems accessing a suitable device or with internet connection. So that we can help you, an important letter will be emailed to those of you we have heard from only a few times or not at all during this period of school closure. This letter will explain the options available to those who cannot access digital learning, so please look out for it.

Miss Siefert continues to provide us with music tasks (these are posted weekly on Google classroom) and you can learn the song of the week, as well as joining in with the body percussion, at:

https://www.singup.org/singupathome/song-of-the-week

If you need any help with Google classroom you can visit their support site at

This also has three lessons per day (English, maths and one other) so you could have a look at this too if you want to.

Don’t forget to keep reading and using your Bug Club account: I have been keeping an eye on your allocations and topping up the accounts of those of you who need new texts. Also, keep exercising – PE with Joe is still going, even though he spent the weekend in hospital, so you have no excuse for not doing it! Fortunately, his wife, Rosie, is helping out.

You can message us on the stream on Google classroom at any time.

This week, I would like you to write a letter to me telling me all about your experience of this time at home. You could tell me what you are doing, what other members of your household are doing, whether you are doing things together that you didn’t have time for before, what you are eating, how you are taking your exercise, how you feel about not being able to get out and about – anything at all! If you are observing Ramadan, you could tell me how that is going. This task will

be posted on Google classroom for those of you with access, or you could write it down and post it, or take a photograph and email it to us.

Last week, you were invited to take part in a Times Tables Rock Stars competition. This week, Miss Green is launching a maths poster competition! This poster will show how maths impacts your daily life and give different examples of how you use your maths skills at home! This could include using measuring equipment to weigh ingredients to bake a cake, using written addition and subtraction when creating a shopping list with a budget or counting how many different coloured cars pass the window! I am sure you will be able to find many other ways in which you use maths every day.

 

This competition begins on Monday 4th May and closes on Friday 15th May and is open for pupils of all ages, from Nursery up to Year 6. You could design your poster on the computer or hand draw it on a piece of paper. Please attach your entries to an email (a word document or a photograph of a hand drawn entry) and email them to year5@garfield.enfield.sch.uk. A winner will be selected from each year group and these will be announced on the Garfield website on Monday 18th May, along with the winning entries.

This week, there is also a special message for you from Mrs Walton:

 

Let’s celebrate V.E.75 Day together!

Next Friday, 8th May 2020, is a special day to remember. Why? Britain will be commemorating the 75th anniversary of V.E. Day when the guns fell silent at the end of WW2 in Europe. This is a chance to remember and say 

“For those who gave so much, we thank you.”

Our veterans and soldiers are now helping us and supporting the NHS in the battle against the coronavirus virus. They are still risking their lives or providing amazing inspiration as the hero Captain Tom has done through fundraising.

So, what can we do to show our support and thanks next Friday? We’d like you to make bunting or a poster to display to celebrate V.E.75 Day.

Please take pictures and send them to our school. There is an excellent website to give you lots of ideas and information at   bbc.co.uk/makeadifference.

Thank you, 

Mrs Walton         

This task is especially appropriate for us in Year 6, as we studied WW2 in the autumn term and you should be able to remember many of the key events – some of you have been doing the quizzes on Google classroom and showing just how much you have learned. I look forward to seeing your contributions!

Mr. Flatley

Hello Hellebore class.

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter break and are all keeping well and safe. Please find below a timetable of activities that I would like you to complete this week. All of these activities are to be found on Google Classroom.

 

If you have not yet logged on or are having trouble accessing Google Classroom, please get in touch with us at Year6@garfield.enfield.sch.uk so that we can help you access it.

 

Please do not try to do all of these activities in one day; spread them out over the week, as per the timetable, so that you are doing some school-related work throughout each day as if you were in school. Try to work between the hours of 9am and 3pm, and make sure that you have regular breaks.  

 

You can complete most of these activities on paper or on Google Docs. We will post the answers at the end of the week so that you can mark your work. However, some of the activities such as the reading comprehensions and science tasks are in Google quiz forms, which will automatically give you the answers upon completion. These quizzes should be completed on Google Classroom.  

 

In addition, ensure that you are reading a book (or listening to an audio book) every day and try to make sure you are physically active every day too in order to keep fit and healthy – this could be going out for a jog or cycle ride, or doing a home workout.

 

Kind regards to you and your families,

 

Mr. Flatley

List of tasks

English

There will be three reading comprehension tasks set this week: two fiction texts and one non-fiction text.

A World War Two quiz has been set. The questions are based on our learning from the Autumn term so do your best to try and recall as much factual information as you can.

Science

Our work this week is a quiz based on our Evolution & Inheritance topic.

30th March 2020

Letter to Hellebore class

 

Hello Hellebore class! I hope you are all well and keeping busy at home. Over the last week things have changed a lot. I hope you are enjoying spending time with your family. I’m sure you are missing your friends at school very much. Please make sure you are getting enough exercise while you are at home and have lots of fun each day in addition to completing your work. 

 

Take care,

Mr Flatley

 

List of tasks

English

1) Continue to work through the reading comprehension and grammar activities in your pack.

2) If you haven’t already completed it, plan and write a space-themed story. There is a planning template on Google Classroom to help with this. 

Maths

Continue to work through the arithmetic tests in your pack. 

Topic

If you have not already completed your animal fact file on Google Classroom, complete an animal fact file on any animal of your choice.  Include information on the animal type, where they live, their diet, what they are well known for, images etc.  Remember to structure your work clearly with paragraphs and subheadings, and don’t just copy and paste – write in your own words! You can do this on paper or on Google Classroom, but Google Classroom is better if you can access it as we can see your work.

Science

Research three scientists for our Electricity topic (Michael Faraday, Thomas Edison & Nikola Tesla) on Google Classroom. Please do not just copy and paste from a website. Read the information through and then put it into your own words using the appropriate grammar, punctuation and technical vocabulary.

Reading

Continue to read a book daily. The website Audible has also made children’s audio books available for free if you need a new book and don’t have any at home.

Music

Log on to BBC ten pieces.

Watch and listen to A Bao A Qu’ from ‘Anthology of Fantastic Zoology’ by Mason Bates

 

·         Listen to the music and create art-work to describe it

·         What sort of a creature does the music describe?

·         How does the music make you feel?

·         Can you name any of the instruments heard?

·         What do you think ‘pizzicato strings’ means?
