W/C 01.06.20

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the final term of Year 6!

Please complete the work set out for this week like you have done previously.

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 at home!

We hope you continue to enjoy the activities; remember to complete them in a time frame suited to you.


Monday 1st June

English

  • Spelling: Use this Spelling List to pick 10 more, different words. Each day you will learn these spellings and then ask someone at home to test you on them on Thursday!
  • Reading: Read the telephone box text You could share, with someone in your household, some facts that you have learnt. Note down any words that you are unsure of, find their definitions and copy them down.

We will put the answers to the Reading questions on the website on Friday!

Maths

Miss Dawes’ group: complete this activity: Monday Maths 6D. (I will post the answers for this week’s work on Friday, at lunch time!)

Mrs Button’s and Miss Hill’s group: Welcome back to the final term of Year 6!

As it looks like we won’t be able to see you all before the end of the school year, we will continue to put work on our website to keep you ‘ticking over’, ready for secondary school. It will be identical to what we will be doing with anyone who can come into school, so if you have any questions, don’t forget to email us!

Before half term, we set several lessons covering angles from White Rose Maths; if you haven’t finished those and purple polished your answers, do that before you start anything else. If and when you have, I have attached further work on missing angles and properties of shapes for you to tackle – all problem solving and reasoning, many from past SAT papers. Some are from the higher paper, so if you find any too tricky, just have a sensible guess and move on. If all doesn’t become clear when you mark them with the answer sheet, then email us at Year 6, and we’ll help you out. Almost all of the questions will have been covered in some form or another in Year 5 and 6. As ever, go at your own pace; you don’t have to complete all three activities!

We will post the answers to each of the three task sheets on Thursday; checking through and making corrections will also form Friday’s session.

Again: if you haven’t completed the lessons from before half term, then these are the priority – you may not get around to very many of these questions at all, and that’s okay.

Have a super week!

Mrs Button and Miss Hill
