Home-Learning Guidance

If you are self-isolating or not attending school for any other reason, you can find some advice here on how to continue with a routine of home-learning. 

The advice given here is intended to guide you towards 4 daily activities: maths, English, curriculum and a reading task.

 

Maths:

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

 

From this link, you can find the daily videos that we have been referring to in our Google Classroom assignments. Each day's video links up with the daily maths lesson on BBC Bitesize - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons

 

At the bottom of each BBC Maths Lesson, there are a set of activities. They come in the form of worksheets, videos, games and interactives. 

 

You can also use the following links for additional games or activities.

https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/kids-activities/fun-maths-games-and-activities/

https://www.mathsisfun.com/games/

https://www.mathletics.com/uk/ - (requires your child's login) all activities can be accessed even if they haven't been assigned by teachers. Look for an activity that links with the BBC lesson. Your child will also enjoy 'Live Mathletics' and 'Multiverse', which are on the 'Play' section. 

English and Curriculum:

Both the BBC Daily Lessons and Oak National Academy provide full daily English lessons and a variety of different curriculum lessons over the course of the week. These mostly feature videos, worksheets, interactives and games

https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/year-6#schedule

 

Remember that your child also has a logon for SpellingShed - https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb

 

If you require your child to work unsupported for any of these activities, including maths, it is not a bad idea to set them lessons from a lower year group to their age. Please remember that we would not expect our Year 6 children to complete our lessons in school without teacher support.

 

Reading:

You can use ReadTheory every day for some comprehension practice - https://readtheory.org/ 

You can contact admin2623@welearn365.com if you have forgotten your logon. 

 

Attached below are a set of Reading Comprehension activities. Each one should not be completed in one day. You should try to follow a routine similar to the one below:

20 - 30 minutes - read, highlight tricky words, check meanings/definitions

20 - 30 minutes - read again and start answering questions

20 - 30 minutes - finish and review any answers, mark using the marksheet at the end of the document

 

Remember that the most important aspect of reading practice is just reading! You should try to read a book for an hour a day.

Easter Home-Learning Activities

Dear Year 6 Parents

Today, we stopped a number of children from signing each other's shirts. This was not done out of a lack of compassion. 

It was done because we are not saying goodbye to you or your children today. We will celebrate your children's time at Coten End when that time comes. 

We will see you on the other side.

How to access Google Classrooms

At the moment, we are finding that people have issues accessing the downloaded app. However, all web browsers (Chrome, InternetExplorer, Firefox, Safari etc.) will allow access as described on the attached document. 

If someone already uses GMAIL at home, they may need to sign-out first.

Welcome to our Year 6 Blog

Come here for weekly updates!

Year 6 Blog by Rhys and Kimran

 

This week year 6 have been learning about Dunkirk - the beach where British and other allied forces were stranded at the start of WWII and the Battle of Britain.

Kind reminder: 6NW will have their Evacuation Day next week and 6EH/6BC will have them on the following two weeks (see dates posted last time/on the app).

This week we have also been learning ratio in maths and converting it into fractions.

On Wednesday, we had a Holocaust Memorial Day assembly led by Dave Sternbeg and on Monday morning next week, Charity Committee and Executive Committee will be representing Coten End at Warwick's Holocaust Memorial event.

 

 

Year 6 Blog by Rhys (6NW)

 

In Year 6 we have been learning about World War II (WWII) or the Battle Of Britain.

Year 6 have had an outstanding first week and have produced some amazing work in our new topic. We have written about rationing and what it would be like to have to sacrifice so much of the food we love! In maths, we continue to work through all of the fraction methods and problems.

Our new class reading book is called Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll.

 

I hope you enjoy the photos we have uploaded. I apologise if you cannot identify your child amongst them! Obviously the nature of the activities makes it difficult to always capture faces, but we will share more photos at our Marle Hall Assembly on Thursday 5th December at 9.05am. 

 

Your children were a credit to you and our school. It was an absolute pleasure to spend the week with them and to see how much effort, determination and resilience they displayed throughout what is an extremely tiring week. Thank you all for your support.

 

Mr Williams

Marle Hall:

We are having an incredible time at Marle Hall. Everyone has stepped up to the challenge and the photos below give you a taste of what we have been up to.

 

Check in on Wednesday night and Thursday night for further photo updates.
