Year 6 2019 - 2020
For anyone wanting some extra ideas for keeping busy whilst you are at home, I have tried to put together a variety of different links to cover lots of subjects. Many of them have individual activities to complete whilst some offer ongoing learning to work through at your own pace. I hope that you find something here to interest and excite you.
Don’t forget to let us know how you are getting on and share anything that you get up to.
From Mrs Price😊
Topmarks has lots of interactive games for you to play. You can search by subject or topic. One of our favourites is ‘Hit the Button’ for maths but there are lots more interesting games to have a go at.
Many of you will have already started using Duolingo. There are lots of different languages to have a go at. Don’t stop at just the one – why not become a German or Spanish speaker?
The BBC languages site also allows you to choose the language you would like to learn.
Learn French with Mr Innes – lots of video lessons to work through to learn French
The experts from the Association for Science Educators have created these curriculum-led resources that have been specifically designed to help deliver a structured series of topic-based primary science lessons in a home environment. There are two topics for each year group but you can choose whatever interests you – there is an advantage to being at home learning!
Explorify at home is a weekly supply of activities for parents and carers to do with their learners at home. It's based on the primary science curriculum, but easy to do at home.
Kids Invent Stuff asks children to send in ideas for inventions. They select some of the best ideas to make the invention. Some of the inventions created so far have been the trampoline drum kit, a wearable oven, a tea train and (my favourite) the catapult alarm. Lots to watch and inspire some amazing inventing.
The Royal Institute – Family section has lots of interesting experiments to test out
Reach Out Reporter has weekly updates about inventions and events happening in the scientific world. A great 10 minute watch that will have you all asking lots of questions.
Make yoga and mindfulness fun for everyone
The Youth Sport Trust has a set of 60 second challenges to add some different ideas to getting physical
Primary PE planning share a different home PE activity each week. It is all explained in a video and the activities can be completed with equipment you have at home – this week is a sock challenge.
If you haven’t yet see or read J K Rowlings story of The Ikabog, you can access it all online. She has even invited everyone to create illustrations for each chapter.
Derbyshire Music Hub are setting a weekly music lesson for Junior children. There are lots to choose from including singing, rhythms and puzzles.
The National Geographic Primary Resources have lots of brilliant information and activity ideas perfect for inquisitive CJS minds.
Welcome to the Year 6 Page and Summer Term part 2
A warm welcome back to Year 6 pupils. It is fantastic to see so many of our Year 6 pupils safely back in school. We hope they enjoy their final half term at CJS before moving on to their Senior Schools. For those few pupils who remain at home, we hope that you keep safe and continue to access the Home Learning, which will be placed onto the School Website each day.
Remember that you can continue to message your teacher on Class Dojo if you have any questions or want to share something you have done. Thank you to all Year 6 parents for your continual support and for completing all consent and information forms over the past few weeks. We will continue to do our upmost in ensuring that all pupils remain safe and enjoy being in school.
Enjoy the lovely weather and keep smiling
The Year 6 Team
