Above is a tutorial for you and your children to watch concerning OneNote. This will be the platform we use for remote learning and almost everything the children will need will be available on here.

 

The children will receive login details to access Microsoft Office. From here, they can click on the OneNote application. 

 

Find the tab called 'Class Notebooks'. There is a notebook called 'Mr Baker Year 6 Notebook' which will be the area to access all of the relevant learning.

 

If, when you click on the Notebook, it appears empty or has failed to load. Do not panic! You just need to refresh the page, or you can click on 'File' and there will be an option to 'Edit in Desktop App'. Once you do this, the full document will appear for you.

 

From here, click on 'Content Library'. This will bring up several tabs which have been labelled as our different subjects. The children can go into each tab to find the relevant learning for the subject.

 

There will be teaching videos, resources and written information to set out the children's tasks. The children can complete tasks by either taking a photo of written work and uploading this photo to their individual folders (as can be seen on the left-hand side of the webpage), or by physically typing answers onto their individual notepages within their individual folders.

 

There is also an option at the top of the page called 'Immersive Reader'. If you click on this, the screen will read out the text to the children. I would advise using this wherever possible.

 

I am writing comments about your children's learning in blue, on the same notebook. Similar to you, I am trying to refresh pages as much as possible to find everything!

 

Find below the link to access my OneNote Class Notebook:

 

Mr Baker Year 6 Notebook  (Web view)

 

 

You will find the subjects organised into separate folders.

 

You will find that these folders outline which day/date the children need to complete each activity.

 

 

 

 

Home learning logins have now been handed to your children. These details currently include: Purple Mash, Times Tables Rockstars, Power Maths and Reading Eggs.

 

The school code for 'Power Maths' is 'tclr'.

 

If you have any difficulty with logging into these apps, then please email me and I will guide you through.

Please note that this information has been transferred across to OneNote for your children to access.

 

 

 

Please log into Microsoft Office with you details and access OneNote for this week's learning. If there is any mention in OneNote to return to the website for a resource, then that resource can be found within this section.

 

In the 'Literacy' folder, I have created separate pages for separate days.

 

You can see the date that I would like each session to be completed (i.e. 11.1.21 for Monday, 12.1.21 for Tuesday, etc.).

Your children will need their login details, which will be stuck in their homework books. The school code, should it be required, is 'tclr'.

 

Once you have been able to login, I have set relevant tasks to do with decimals for you to complete. These include multiplying and dividing decimals. You may have other tasks already set, which I would also encourage you to revisit when you get an opportunity.

Above is a link for the Spelling Frame activities which apply this week's spellings.

 

Below is a link for the spellings for all three groups. A reminder that some children have a differentiated list according to whether specific rules need to be re-addressed.

Immersion Activities 4.1.21 - 6.1.21

 

For the first couple of days, I would like the children to immerse themselves into the topic of Space.

 

There is a document below called Immersion Tasks which sets out a variety of engaging tasks for the children.

 

Should you need any other activities, these are other activities that the children could also complete at home:

 

1. Create a poster on your favourite planet! Use the immersion documents below to find relevant information about your chosen planet. Which themes are you going to use to guide your research? Which headings are you going to use?

 

2. Watercolour your favourite planet! This can accompany the information for your poster. If you do not have watercolours, then you could use colouring pencils instead. Try to take care to make this as accurate as possible.

 

3. Top Trump Cards! You could use the fact cards to inspire you to make your own set of Top Trump cards about the planets. Create a set of rules or a system whereby you can play the Top Trumps game using the fact cards that you make. Perhaps if you are focusing on the theme of 'Distance', the planet furthest away from the Sun is the winner?

 

4. Edible Meteorites! Follow the recipe below to make your own edible meteorites!

 

5. Crossword! There is a fun crossword activity to complete to do with the themes of space.

 

 

Eisteddfod:

 

 

This year we will continue to run our annual Eisteddfod, performance poetry competition. Children should choose a poem to learn by heart and practice performing this, using a loud, clear voice, expression and with gestures and actions if possible. We have provided some suggested poems based on our Spring term topic which you can use, or you are free to choose your own poem of a similar length (or children may write their own poem).

 

Class rounds will be held on 12th February, where all children will have the opportunity to perform their poem to the class. Winners will be selected and put forwards to the final which will be held on 4th March. If the COVID situation has not improved by then, we will use zoom for the finals.  

 

See these potential poem choices below.

Times Tables:

 

The order I will be assessing the children is as follows:

 

2x, 5x, 10x, 4x, 8x, 3x, 6x, 9x, 11x, 12x, 7x

 

They will then move onto mixed questioning, followed by division facts.

 

If you would like to follow the same format, then you can practise the times table that your child is being assessed on/practising to learn at home.

 

Please can you also ensure that your child is reading at least 10 minutes a day. Ensure they are discussing, interpreting and questioning the language of the text with you.
