Successful Seals

Welcome to the Successful Seals!

 

Hello Year 6!

 

I hope you have had a great first week at home. I hope lots of you have been out walking with your family, or bike riding if you have a bike. I have been on walk each day and have been doing lots of baking. So far I have made: rhubarb crumble, malteser rocky road and mini egg cookies. The rabbits have been loving the sunshine and today it is their 4th birthday (27.3). My plan for this weekend is to play some old classics (including Sims), go out walking each day and do some more baking (Rolo cookies and Terry Chocolate orange cheesecake!). 

 

Again, I've put some work up for you to do (week 2 work).  It's up to you and your family how much you do and what you do. Please remember to have some 'you' time too. If you do any work and want me to look at it, keep it in a safe place and we can look at it together once we are back at school. Remember you have your work books too, if you are unsure of anything in those, please fold the corner of the book and bring it back to school when we are back.

 

Thank you for being the most wonderful class. You are all incredible individuals, with so much to give. 

 

Thank you to your parents too, for any help they can give you and for all the memories you are going to make together as a family during this time. Remember, learning can come from so many other things. Walking, talking, reading together, baking, doing puzzles, playing board games, playing cards, painting, building lego and competing on the xbox are just some of the other ways children can learn. Staying healthy, happy and enjoying your time together is crucial over the next few weeks. 

 

Hope to see you all soon and miss you already! Mrs V and Mrs D xx

My week and weekend!

It's always good to have a break from a screen - how many of these can you do?

Can you watch the webcams of the animals and write about them? Maybe create an information leaflet? Write a poem? A story? If you want to you could send your work in the post to Edinburgh Zoo, they may add it to their displays in the Zoo when they are back open. Make sure you ask an adult before sending any work to the Zoo!

Reading

https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/ David Walliams is doing a live broadcast of one of his stories each day at 11am - you can also hear the previous day too. 
 

 

https://www.worldbookday.com/world-of-stories/

Above is a link to 'A world of stories', this allows your child to choose a book to listen to aloud. Scroll down to the 'fiction' section, for books such as: The boy who made the world disappear, A pinch of magic, The jungle book, Time travel diaries, Pegasus and the flame and Pride and Prejudice. If the children just want half an hour of listening to someone read a story, then follow the link and I hope your children cosy up on the sofa whilst listening!

 

https://www.audible.co.uk/

Audible has a 30 day free trial. You can listen to a wide range of books here, but will need to remember to cancel the membership after the free trial is over.

 

https://www.youtube.com/user/artificedesign/videos

Michael Rosen has over 200 videos on his Youtube channel for children to listen to for enjoyment.

 

https://www.booksfortopics.com/year-6

This website has 50 books that are great to read, if you are in Year 6. This might help you pick your new book to read!

 

Reading together and reading on your own for pleasure will be the best thing you can do for the next few weeks. Reading can take you off to a new world, it will build your imagination and give you so many ideas for writing stories. Below this, I have put together a more formal reading session for each day, this is only if you want to have something to do. I will be more than happy if you enjoy your books outside in the garden or on the sofa if it is raining. Take a look below if you would like!

Week 2: Topic - Mexico 

 

Lesson 1:

Use a range resources to find out about Mexico - You can choose how to display your findings: Make a leaflet / non-chronological report / poem / write a story / factfile / mindmap / information text about everything you find out smiley

 

When watching the videos or reading the information, consider making notes first based on the following themes and questions, before producing your 'final piece':

 

  • What is Mexico like?
  • What are the human features (buildings etc)?
  • What are the Physical features (mountains, rivers)?
  • Geographically which continent is it on?
  • Which oceans is it near?
  • What similarities are there to the UK?
  • What differences are there to the UK?
  • What is the weather like?
  • What animals are there?
  • What is family life like?
  • What jobs do they do?

Lesson 2:
Who were the Maya?

Read through the information on the powerpoint, then make your own 'lesson' to teach a member of your family. 

This could mean you make your own posters, your own worksheets or your own powerpoint. 

Which family member will you choose to teach? I hope your lesson goes well! 

 

 

 

 

Lesson 2: Resources

Week 2: A fantastic website for learning how to draw!

 

http://www.robbiddulph.com/draw-with-rob

A man called Rob Biddulph (a children's author and illustrator) is making two videos a week at 10am on a Tuesday and Thursday. Draw with Rob already has 4 videos on from last week too. 

I had a go at the Gregasaurus and Kevin last week.... my Gregasaurus definitely went better than my Kevin!! 

Week 2: Baking

 

I LOVE baking!

 

New: I am making these this week (29.3.2020):

https://www.janespatisserie.com/2015/05/17/no-bake-chocolate-orange-cheesecake/

https://www.janespatisserie.com/2018/07/23/rolo-cookies/

https://www.janespatisserie.com/2015/04/02/vanilla-cupcakes-easter-nest-cupcakes/

 

 

Jane's patisserie is the website I use all the time, have a look through the recipes!

 

If you are baking, you must have help from an adult! So ask nicely and remember, ingredients are hard to find at the moment; you may have to be inventive!
