Hello Year 6s, 

Happy Half Term! We hope that you and your families are all still keeping safe and well. 

 

Please try and have a break from any work this week. All of our brains need time to switch off and relax at times, especially given how difficult and strange things are at the moment. We've not put any new work up this week, however there are some activities here if you get bored: https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/home-learning-timetable/?selectedweek=20200525&selectedday=monday&selectedyear=year6#timetable

 

We've also been sent a competition from RAF Cosford, where you can win £100 worth of prizes for designing a winning poster. See below for all the information if you are interested. 

 

We're still waiting for the Government to make a final decision on whether schools will be opening next week, as soon as we know for definite we will be in touch. We are looking forward to seeing your faces! 

 

Keep looking out for each other and your families, 

#StaySafeStayStrong #BeKind

Love, 

Miss S and Miss S x

 

P.S. We're still here if you need us. You can email us at: homework6@woodcockhillprimaryschool.co.uk

Hello Year 6s, 

Welcome to Week 9 of Lockdown. We hope that you and your families are still keeping safe, happy and healthy. 

 

It looks as though you will be one of the lucky year groups who will be invited back to school first. Plans are still being made, but once things are confirmed, school will be in touch with you and your families to explain. Things will be different than before but hopefully it will be a time where you can enjoy the final weeks of your time at Primary School.

 

If you're missing our faces (which we're sure you are!) head over to the With Love from Woodcock Hill page on the website, which you can find from the Pupils Tab. All the teachers have taken photos and Mrs Clarson has made them into a video for you all to see. 

 

There's some new documents uploaded into the Home Learning Section for this week. Well done to all those who are still working, it is a difficult time and things have never been like this before. Just remember, any work you do now will help you in the future, whether it is with us or in your new schools. Remember to check out your Secondary School's website to answer any questions or worries you might have about moving. 

 

We've also uploaded two documents called Storytime Online, this has links to websites where you can hear some stories being read aloud. Ignore the ages on them- just enjoy listening to some stories!

 

Keep looking after yourselves and your families, 

#StaySafe and #StayStrong

Love Miss S and Miss S x

 

P.S. Remember the Year 6 email (homework6@woodcockhillprimaryschool.co.uk) is still there for anybody who needs help with  anything. 

Dear Year 6s, 

Well, this is the week. You should have been sitting your SATs tests this week. Monday would have been Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. Tuesday would have been Reading. Wednesday would have been Arithmetic and Reasoning 1. Thursday would have been Reasoning 2. Friday would have been a break! We bet the week you will actually live looks very different to this- ours certainly does! We are sure you are all very relieved at the thought of not doing your SATs, however a little part of us is disappointed that you won't get to show off everything you have learnt! We know that you would all have done fantastically. 

 

Keeping with the SATs theme, as well as uploading some more work, we've also added some 'Silly SATs.' These are SATs papers with a slight twist- hopefully they are more enjoyable than the real thing! There is also some new websites to look at.

 

Normal life seems very far away at the moment. Try to remember that this won't last forever and we will get through it. Please use the websites at the top of the page if you are worried about anything. You can still get in touch with us using our class email: homework6@woodcockhillprimaryschool.co.uk

 

We miss you lots, 

Stay Safe, Stay Strong and Be Kind, 

Love Miss S and Miss S x

Hello Year 6s, 

Welcome to May! We hope that you are all still looking after yourselves and your families and that you all remain safe and well. We still don't know when we will be back at school but we hope that we will be back soon, when it is safe for us to do so. 

 

This week we should have only been in school four days. Friday is a bank holiday so school would have been closed. Traditionally, the May Day Bank Holiday is on a Monday, but this year it has been moved to Friday for a very special reason. On Friday 8th May, the country will celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day- Victory in Europe Day. This is the day, 75 years ago, in 1945, that the end of World War Two was declared. Although the celebrations won't be what was planned, it is important to remember the importance of this day. We have learnt a lot about World War Two this year so hopefully it will mean a little more to you now. 

As part of any work you complete this week, you might wish to research VE Day. Here are some links to the British Legion website that you may wish to use. 

https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/remembrance/remembrance-events/ve-day-75

https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/remembrance/teaching-remembrance

 

We've also added some more resources to our Home Learning, further down the page and some P.E. websites into our list of websites. 

 

Remember to also spend some time researching your Secondary School. It might help to answer any questions that you have. 

 

Keeping smiling Year 6 and #StayHomeSaveLives

Dear Year 6s, 

Welcome to week 6 of lockdown. We hope you and your families are all staying safe and well. Strangely, today (Monday 27th April) will be the 20th day of no school- it definitely feels a lot longer than that for us and we're guessing it must for you as well. Hopefully, it won't be too long now until we are able to get back to school, although it may look slightly different to what we are used to. 

 

We've uploaded some new documents to the Home Learning section below and keep using the daily online learning from BBC Bitesize, Classroom Secrets and the National Oak Academy. Try to do something active every day as well, it will help! 

 

The Year 6 homework email address (homework6@woodcockhillprimaryschool.co.uk) is still live so please use it to contact us if you need anything. 

 

We miss you lots, please keep looking after yourselves and your families. 

Remember to #StayHomeSaveLives, 

Love Miss S and Miss S x

Hello Year 6s, 

Welcome back to what should be the start of the Summer term, your final term in Primary School. We hope that you and your families are all safe, happy and healthy. We continue to miss you and look forward to the day when we are able to see you again back in school. There are lots of rumours flying around about when they might be, but at the moment nobody knows for definite. This term we should have started a new topic: Hola Mexico! We would have been learning about living in Mexico, the Ancient Maya Civilisation, the artist Frida Kahlo and Light/ Reflection. We've uploaded what would have been your homework grid, so you can start exploring these if you wish.

 

We hope that you had a relaxing Easter and have enjoyed some quality time with your families. If there have been some less happy times, remember that everyone is finding the current situation difficult. The best thing we can do now is to be aware of others feelings and show kindness whenever we can. If you are feeling stressed or worried, we've put some links to Childline at the top of the page, both for you and people at home. There are lots of suggestions here to help us all cope at the moment. 

 

Just in case your getting bored, we've uploaded some more documents and updated the list of daily activities below. Try to stick to a routine of doing a little Maths and English each week day, along with some more creative things. A quick reminder, work should not be a priority at the moment. Health and mental wellbeing of you and all those in your home must be more important. 

 

You might have started to think about next year and what it will be like in your new school. Please don't worry about your new start, try to think of it as an exciting new adventure. Your new school will be a place where you can make new friends, try new experiences and learn lots of exciting new things. You may want to spend some time over the next few weeks researching your secondary school. Their websites will be full of information about school life and what you can expect. 

 

Make sure you continue to look after yourselves and those at home. 

Remember to be kind and #StayHomeSaveLives

Love Miss S and Miss S x

Hello Year 6s, 

We hope that you and your families are all staying safe and keeping healthy. Today, we should have been celebrating finishing the Spring term and looking forward to two weeks of holiday. However, in this strange new world, all it really means is two extra weeks at home. 

 

Despite more time at home, please remember that this time is intended to be a break for you and your families. We all need to take time to relax and recharge our batteries. Looking after our health and wellbeing, including our mental health, has never been more important than it is now. Try to remember this when you are interacting with people at home- think about their feelings as well as your own!

 

Whilst at home, you are probably using the internet more than usual. The internet can be a fantastic place with huge benefits, however it can also be dangerous. Please remember to use the internet safely and appropriately. If you see something that upsets you or makes you feel uncomfortable please show an adult. Also, if you are communicating with others online, make sure you are being respectful and kind to each other. Now more than ever, we must make sure we are showing friendship and looking out for each other. (If somebody does upset you online, put yourself first and block their number.) 

 

We are still missing you lots and wish you all Happy Easter! 

Look after yourselves and your families and always remember #StayHomeSaveLives

Love Miss S and Miss S x

 

P.S. We've uploaded an Action for Happiness calendar underneath this message. It's got one positive activity per day to help all of us cope with the current situation. 

Dear Year 6s, 

We hope that you are all safe and feeling well despite the strange situation we are in. We both miss you lots and can't wait to be back in the classroom with you. 

 

Did you know that you are one of 1,524,648,768 learners across the world who have had their school life affected by this pandemic? That's 87.1% of all learners across the globe! (UNESCO, 24 March) To help keep you learning, we've added some more activities underneath for you to have a go at while we're still in 'lockdown.' We've called it Daily Activities as there are new things to try each weekday.

 

Throughout this difficult time, please remember that completing work is not the most important thing right now. The most important thing is the health and wellbeing of you and your family members. Make sure you let them know that you appreciate them and show them lots of love and care- remember this is a difficult time for them as well! 

 

Look after yourselves Year 6 and remember #StayHomeSaveLives

Love Miss S and Miss S x
