Welcome to the Year 6 Page!

Hello to all of our Year 6’s!

We hope that all of you have had a great two weeks and have managed to access all of the work that we have set you. We have seen some fabulous work on Seesaw based on Francis, including a video and lots of wonderful writing - well done.

Hopefully you have all received the new work pack by now for you to start tomorrow (the 11th May) which has a maths and English activity to complete each day. Under normal circumstances, we would have done the Titanium music video task as a big write lesson in school and it usually inspires some lovely pieces of writing so we will look forward to seeing what you come up with.

This is your home-learning daily plan for English and Maths for the next two weeks which you should also have received a copy of in your packs:

 National Numeracy Day | 13 May 2020

You should all receive a letter soon (if you haven't already) regarding a maths competition Miss Blankley is holding to celebrate National Numeracy Day which is on this upcoming Wednesday (13th May). To enter, all you need to do is represent the 7 x multiplication table creatively in some way. For example, you might decide to create an information poster, a piece of artwork, design a board game, write a multiplication tables song, or even write a tables poem – the choice is yours! You can either post your entries or hand them in at the school office. The closing date is Monday 1st June and a winner will be chosen from each year group. There are some really fabulous prizes to be won that will be posted home to the winners so try to think of your most creative ideas and amaze us!

Finally, ensure that you are regularly logging on to Seesaw to keep up to date with information on these activities and as a way to keep in touch - we are missing you all very much so it is lovely to hear from you through Seesaw.

We are really hoping to be able to see you all soon! We know that many of you will have mixed emotions right now as it would have been the start of your SATs week tomorrow. We're sure that whilst lots of you are relieved, some of you will be feeling a little disappointed too, which is a completely understandable feeling to have. Anyway, we have written you a little poem about it:

As SATs week arrives, it's not quite the same,   

The tests that were printed this year never came,

The displays all still up; walls full of maths rules,

But Year 6 is very different, at present, in schools.

 

For some of you it brings happiness and lots of relief, 

For others a sigh of pure disbelief, 

That you worked really hard to prepare for this week,

Expected and Greater depth mark you did seek.

 

Algebra, fractions, the times table drills, 

Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,  

Past perfect, progressive and all the SPAG terms,

You've practised and mastered them over the years.

 

Despite the fact that in SATs you will not get your turn, 

Remember that tests don't measure everything you learn, 

Primary subjects are varied and you've always tried your best,  

And many of those skills can't be determined by a test.

 

So here at Marlbrook, you've made us so proud,   

We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud, 

Year 6 you amaze us, you've come incredibly far, 

And we don't need a test to see how amazing you all are!

P.s.

Why is six afraid of seven?

Because seven eight nine!

Why DID seven eat nine?

Because you’re supposed to eat 3 squared meals a day!
