Hello everyone.

It’s our final week!! We can’t believe it is this time already!

What an incredibly strange year we’ve had. We want to take this time, at the end of your final year of primary school, to say a massive ‘well done’ to all of you for getting through an interesting and ever-changing time. We are very sad when we think about all of the things you were not able to do with us in school, including our end of year celebrations.

We have put together a digital yearbook for you to download and keep. We hope you can look back at it in the future and remember your time at Alford Primary School. It can be found here: Yearbook 2020

We also had some fantastic responses to our ‘Fridge Challenge’ video and, whilst something like this would usually have been a part of your final assembly, we hope you can enjoy seeing some familiar faces get some ‘interesting’ things out of their fridge! Here is the link: Year 6 Fridge Challenge

Well done for your continued hard work with your home learning. This week we have provided some more activities for you to complete in a timeframe suited to you. Your term finishes on Tuesday 21st July, so there should be enough here to keep you busy!

This will be the last time we update your home learning page, but our email address is still: Year6@alfordprimary.co.uk for any questions you may have, or to just share the brilliant work you have been doing!

Once again, well done everyone! We are so proud of you and we will miss you all! Good luck starting your secondary schools in September; it may be a little daunting, but you can do it! Enjoy yourselves and have a lovely holiday!

Love from the Year 6 team


English

  • Have a go at PaG Test 1. You do not need to print it out; please just record your answers in your exercise book, on paper or electronically.

Most questions, you can simply write down the answer. For questions that ask you to put commas in, write out the sentence. For question 35 (for example), you can just write the four possible options in the correct order - you do not need to write out the four sentences. For question 43 (for example), just write down the letters in the correct order.

Good luck, and here are the Answers for PaG Test 1 for you to check your work.

You do not need to print anything out: you can read the text electronically. Question 28 asks you to use a ruler to match the answers. For this, you could write the word and the sentence next to each other. Do your best to answers as many questions as you can, but make sure you look at the answers to the ones you find tricky.

Remember: for some you will need to make your point, find evidence (quotations) and explain your thinking.

  • Here is your spelling task. You can check your answers by using a dictionary.

Hello everyone!

Well done for your continued hard work with your home learning. Our email address is still: Year6@alfordprimary.co.uk for any questions you may have, or to just share the brilliant work you have been doing!

This week, we have set out your tasks slightly differently. This is because in school we will be doing these activities at various times during the week and these may not suit when you have support available at home (some of the tasks you can do independently, but others require adult input). All of the activities are listed in subjects. We hope you continue to enjoy the tasks; remember to complete them in a time frame suited to you. We would suggest to have a look at all of work for this week and decide an order to suit you and your family.

Please complete this End of year task first (if you haven’t already) and email it in! We need it as soon as possible J

P.S.H.E. – RSE, Drugs and Transition to Secondary School

RSE

  • Last week, we sent a message out on Parent Hub with the details of what we will be covering in school for our Relationships and Sex Education unit of work. This is where the links can be accessed. There was also an additional Parent Hub post with the activities we will be using attached to it.

Drugs

  • Last week, we sent a message on Parent Hub with details of the information and activities we will be using for our unit of work on drugs. These can be accessed from this message.

Transition to Secondary School

  • As you will be aware, information was sent out about the two transition meetings we have organised (one for JSTC pupils and the other for QEGS pupils) that will be taking place on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. We look forward to seeing you there, if you can make it!

Topic

Last week, you learnt about how WW2 began and researched an area of interest to you. Today, we are going to find out what is was like to be an evacuee. Use this evacuation information to learn more about evacuees and there are some links to videos to provide you with further information. You may also carry out your own research, if you wish.

For your task, we would like you to imagine you are a child in WW2, who has been evacuated from your family home. Write a post card/letter to your family back home, telling them all about your evacuation experience.

Try to include:

  • being on the platform;
  • the train journey;
  • arriving at the countryside;
  • waiting to be selected by a host family;
  • being taken to your new house (think about sounds, sights and smells);
  • what your new house and your new life are like.
