Year 6

Our learning until further notice will take place on Microsoft Teams. Year 6 have live lessons at 9am, 12pm and 2:30pm for English, Maths and Class Novel so please ensure your child joins in with these meetings. Check the calendar on Teams for additional sessions.

 

Activities for them to do between live sessions are detailed on the daily schedule, which is sent on each day on the Teams General Channel and on Marvellous Me. Sheets they will need to support  their learning have been included in the packs which you pick up from school every other week. 

 

For support on how to use Microsoft Teams, check out these handy 'how to' guides:

 

 

It's wonderful to see the children online and engaging with their online learning!

 

Stay safe and please email me with any questions or work completed at Year6Teacher@ash-grange.surrey.sch.uk 

 

Best wishes

Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas - Hola Mexico

 

The new projects run for the first half of the Spring term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term; please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home.  

Below are some ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.

 

  • Which part of Mexico would you prefer to live in, and why? Make a fact file comparing the different regions.
  • Find out about Mexican flowers, trees and animals. Some are really different to the ones in UK! Record what you learn in a notebook or picture chart.
  • Which notable people were born in Mexico or have Mexican heritage? Make a poster about an influential Mexican person.
  • Find out more about Maya hieroglyphs and symbols. Can you write your name or a short message to a friend?
  • Plan an imaginary trip or holiday to Mexico. Look at holiday brochures or research online. How many ways are there to get there? How long would it take? How much would it cost? Make an itinerary for your trip, showing what you would like to see and do while you are there.
  • Listen to a traditional mariachi band and then try making your own musical instruments – simple drums, guitars, shakers – from everyday household objects, like plastic bottles, elastic bands, and rice.
  • Design and build your own Maya temple using junk materials, such as cardboard boxes, newspaper and card.
  • Research the different Maya calendar systems – can you recreate one?
  • Look at the artwork of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and paint a piece in the same style.
  • In RE we will be learning about Buddhism. Can you create a poster to show their main beliefs?
  • In French we will be learning transport and weather vocabulary. Can you draw a journey and annotate how you would get there and the weather?

At the end of the project homework period your child will receive either a bronze, silver or gold project homework badge.

Bronze = a basic piece of project homework was completed

Silver = a good piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of time to complete

Gold = an excellent piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of thought, time and effort to complete
