22.03.2020 - home learning update.
First of all Year 6, let me say that I have had an AMAZING time teaching you over the last seven months and am so disappointed we might not get to do all the things planned for the summer term (even SATs). I hope that we will be back before you all head off to high school but if Blofield is closed until then, I will miss you all and hope that you have a fantastic time and try your hardest at whatever high school you go to. Each and every one of you deserve a successful future so: work hard, be kind and don't worry about the things you can't control.
That being said, the show must go on so for every week until told otherwise, in the home learning section I will be uploading some work for you. We are lucky that we have covered nearly everything in Year 6 so it will mostly be consolidating learning. It will be:
Reading: daily. This is the most important thing you can do until high school.
Writing: a writing task.
Grammar: one grammar focus for the week.
Spellings: a selection of spellings.
Comprehension: a comprehension exercise to do.
Maths: daily calculations
Multiplication: Times tables rock stars
Maths: work set every day
Foundation subject: an activity such as DT, art, science, history or geography
Joe Wicks (the body coach) live PE lessons every day at 9am on his YouTube channel
Cosmic Kids Yoga (YouTube)
GoNoodle Dances (GoNoodle website or some are available on YouTube)
Exercise size challenge: how many star jumps, burpees, push ups and jumping lunges can you do in 1 minute? (1 minute for each)
Purple mash will also be available to children.
Museums and Zoos are also offering virtual tours and theatre groups are uploading plays online, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Forest School Week 2
This week at Forest School children enjoyed preparing and lighting their own fires using fire steels, cotton wool and petroleum jelly. At the end of the session we cooked popcorn and marshmallows over the campfire-yum! There was lots more fantastic den building today and many children used saws, hand drills and hammers to begin to create a miniature village, thinking carefully about tool safety as they worked.
The Forest School site is very muddy. Please ensure that your child brings an OLD coat to wear each Wednesday and thick, preferably waterproof, trousers. Thank you!
