Year 6 Home Learning 13.7.20

Congratulations Year 6 you’ve made it to your last week of Primary school!! This is not the way any of us wanted your last term with us to be but we hope you will still have fond memories of your time with us that don’t become all about the last few months. On Monday we would like you all to come onto Teams at 11.30am where we will hopefully be able to chat as a year group. Mr Scott has something to show you and tell you about that involves you all so please try to log on at that time. For the last week we have tried to come up with some more light-hearted activities and Mrs A-B has made an Escape room around transition for you to try – we hope you enjoy it! Remember you can always come back to see us and let us know how you are getting on and we will miss you all at Coundon Primary.

Escape Room

You will need some paper to write down the code numbers as you go along and if you find it easier you can print off the quiz to do at the end. I hope you enjoy it!

Transition

As well as the escape room you could look at this lesson on the BBC Bitesize website which shows you some videos to illustrate the differences you could face moving from Primary to Secondary school.

English

In English this week you will have some activities to help you to think about leaving Coundon and moving on. If you would like to email any of your work to us to pass on to relevant people then that would be fine.

Reading

Be Amazing! by Chris Hoy

As a boy, Chris didn’t believe that he would achieve his dream of becoming an Olympic champion. However, he grew up to be a six-time gold medal winner. He shares everything he has learned on his journey to success and hopes that by telling his story, he will inspire young people to be the very best they can be.

Fiction Express

When new neighbours move into the house next door, twins Jazz and Mortimer can’t help being excited. The house has been empty for ages and they have been hoping to have neighbours with children their own age. But Jazz and Mortimer are disappointed to learn there are no children – just a man who goes by the name of Dr Salamander and his elderly housekeeper, Mrs Heckle. They are an odd couple and the children long to find out more about them. But the twins have another mystery to solve – why are the neighbourhood pets disappearing?

As well as the online work you could do a book review of your favourite book using Emojis!! Everything you need is included and just needs printing off.
