This week we are going to complete some running intervals.  I will try and make them as simple as possible to remember.  You may have to write these down on a piece of paper, to make it easier for you.

Go out onto your pavement or a local park.  The Grove would be ideal. You will need a stopwatch, a trusted adults phone would be good.  It will also make them come along to join in!

Warm up: 3 minutes continuous running

Round 1: Run hard for 20 seconds: rest for 40 seconds

Round 2: Run hard for 30 seconds: rest for 30 seconds

Round 3: Run hard for 40 seconds: rest for 20 seconds

Round 4: Run hard for 50 seconds: rest for 10 seconds

Round 5: Run for 60 seconds flat out!

Rest for 2 minutes and repeat that sequence another two times through.

Weekly Challenge:

Something slightly different.  Research a sport from another country in the world.  Find a sport you have never heard of before.  You will be amazed at what you find!  Good luck

LEARNING FROM HOME LINKS – THESE HAVE BEEN EMAILED TO ALL PARENTS TO HELP DURING THE SCHOOL CLOSURES

Self learning at home 5&6

Week Beginning 27th April, 2020

Important message from Mrs. Restorick: Hello All Year 6

Good day all of year 6, what a very strange time it is for all of us.  Firstly, I am sure by now you are missing your friends and the structure that school brings you.  I am really missing being in school and working with you all.  Missing being able to give Danny and Kai my poor jokes, missing making you work til exhaustion in PE lessons, missing watching your funky dancing after spelling tests and just missing interacting with you on a daily basis.  I know that by setting work online, does not, in anyway, make up for that one to one contact and being able to explain as a class.  Home learning is really tough, my five-year-old is demonstrating this to me!

So please do not worry.  To try and give you more structure, I am going to change slightly the expectations.  Plus add a couple of things.  The tasks will be grouped into three sections: must, could and should.  If you would like to do more than is suggested then that is fine.  Or if you are having a bad day, just ease off.  Your mental well-being is the the most important aspect.

Must:

  • Read a book everyday for pleasure (not an entire book!)
  • Complete maths and english task

Should:

  • Complete a topic lesson from the link (twice a week)
  • Complete Mr. Barter’s physical development sessions!

Could:

  • Mathletics
  • Readtheory
  • Purple Mash

BBC: Maths, English, Topic link

Mr. Barter’s Physical Development session

For those of you missing my weekly exercise routine, I thought I would add a little circuit you could do daily plus a little challenge.

Round 1: Work for 30 seconds and rest for 15 seconds after each exercise.  Rest for 2 minutes at the end of the round.  In this order:

Sprinting on the spot/Press ups/star jumps/burpees/sprinting on the spot/plank/arm holds/punches/tuck jumps/squat hold

Round 2: Work for 45 seconds and rest for 15 seconds after each exercise.  Rest for 2 minutes at the end of the round.  In this order:

Plank/squat hold/arm holds/lunges/squat jumps/sprinting/tuck jumps/punches

Round 3: Work for 60 seconds and rest for 15 seconds.  Rest for 2 minutes at the end of the round.  In this order:

Plank/sprinting on the spot/press ups/squat hold/arm holds/tuck jumps/

Weekly Challenge:  This is a weekly challenge, not everyday!  Hold the plank.

10 minute plank hold.  Not in one go.  Split it up, maybe 10 x 1minute.   20 x 30 secs etc.

Good luck!

Dan Update: 

He is well and enjoying being taken into the garden for some real sunlight!

Week Beginning 20th April, 2020

Despite the lockdown, we hope you have been able to enjoy the sunshine and keep as active as possible.

Below I have added the links to the maths and English we have been completing before half term.  But, BBC and ‘Oak National Academy’ have developed an incredible online learning platform with a timetable and link to all lessons.  Maths, English and then a topic lesson.  This is what I will be doing with my 5-year-old son, year 1 not year 6, so I strongly recommend you becoming familiar with these sites and attacking these.

Easter Break

We hope you are well and that the last two weeks have been a time where you’ve adapted successfully to a new routine and are not going too stir crazy! Anyhow, we will not be setting ‘academic’ style work over the next two weeks but we have a few little projects you could work through.  Please be assured this is only optional and something for you to focus on for enjoyment.

Art:

To understand and explore how Claude Monet used light and colour to create impressions of rivers and water.

Look closely at some of the paintings by the French artist Claude Monet, thinking particularly about his use of light and colour to create an impression.

Find some facts about the life and work of Claude Monet and the Impressionist art movement

Use the 4 colours to paint their own version of one on Monet’s water paintings

Week Beginning 30th March, 2020

Firstly, we hope you are keeping a positive mindset.  Before we finished, I spoke to you about the three-faced attack! 1. Keep to routine e.g. bedtimes, waking up etc  2. Exercise your self-discipline e.g do one thing a day that is good for you but needs focus – for me it is reading for 45 minutes a day and completing a 60 minute stretching routine!  3. Be aware that you may be irritated easily, therefore plan for this and don’t get annoyed with yourself.

You have already been given a numerous amount of resources that we hope you are slowly working through.  But… working at home is different to working at school.  I have been teaching my 5-year-old and have quickly realised that small chunks of learning, only in the morning, are much more effective.  Therefore, we suggest that a maximum of 30 minutes on each: maths, reading and English to the most beneficial method.  Max of 90 minutes.

What about all the other subjects, I hear you say?  You have no need to worry.  Mrs. Restorick has found some excellent documents to list a number of tasks to complete.  I will attach.

Maths – use the packs, 10 by 10 sheets we have already given out plus use the link to White Rose maths where there are daily lessons, they are really good. Video tutorial then activity.  If it is a little too hard just look at other year groups.

Spring Term 2020

The new year is upon us and the children are back with a spring in their step.  The Spring Term is the shortest of the year and therefore the children will be expected to soak up as much information as possible.  The children have made a superb start to their time in year 6 and we now expect them to push on and challenge themselves further.

Spring Term Newsletter 2020

Year 6 Topic Grid Events of World War Two 2020

Autumn Term 2019

Welcome to all children in your final year of Primary Education.  The year will be full of interesting and engaging lessons with an increased desire on both quality and quantity of work.  We expect our students to be well-mannered, organised and kind.  Throughout the year we embrace our local area by visiting areas such as Charmouth and Carey Camp.  We are looking forward to an action packed year of academic and personal progression.   Mrs Restorick and Mr Barter.

Avalanche Church visit 12th September

To initiate our Portland topic; the entire year group walked energetically to Avalanche Church.  Rev. Gomm kindly delivered a fascinating speech to the year children on the tragic events that took place September 11th, 1877.  The students then had a chance to observe and analyse the many artefacts around the church.  Ranging from artefacts recovered from the ship; donations upon the walls and artwork from New Zealand.  Please ask your children to retell the captivating and dramatic scenes that took place 12 miles off Portland Bill.

Welcome to Year 6 Autumn 2019

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Our topic for the Spring Term will focus on Events of WW2.  If you know anyone who has experience or stories of the Second World War we would be particularly keen to hear from you.  First hand accounts provide the child with such engaging experiences that it will hugely benefit their learning.  Please contact the school if you are able to help. Thank you
