Hi again - 27.4.20

 

Hi, I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe.  This week we have more World War Two-themed work ready for the 75th anniversary of VE Day on May 8th and a variety of new activities - hopefully these will be easier to find with a separate page for each subject.

We have had some queries about how much work you should be trying to do at home during the lockdown.  Well, we understand that families will be facing a range of different challenges and find themselves in very different situations.  Whilst we do not want to specify exactly what your daily routine at home must look like, below is a document which shows a suggested structure for your home learning.  Please note that this is only a suggested model and that we understand that each individual family must chose their own daily routines to fit in with their unique situations.  We hope that this is helpful to some of you.

 

 

Take care and stay safe,

 

Miss Kyle, Mr Morris, Mr Mitchell, Mr Barber and Mrs Hosker

A possible structure for your day

Welcome back!  20.4.20

Hi everyone!  We're sorry that school can't be reopened yet, but we hope that you are all safe and well and ready to do some learning while you're at home.  This half-term, in recognition of VE Day which is at the start of May, we are going to be finding out all about World War Two and much of our work will link to this topic (see the new English and Topic work posted below).  Although we were very much looking forward to teaching you this in person, there are a huge number of resources on the internet for learning about this key period in our history; plus you may well have family who remember the effects of the war or have old photos or documents that you can look at.

 

Please stay safe, stay healthy, and keep in touch using the Year 6 blog here   - we would love to hear from you.

FREE AUDIBLE BOOKS TO LISTEN TO

TOPIC: World War Two

 

75 years ago, World War Two ended: probably the biggest single event of the 20th Century.  We will be learning about the war and, in particular, what life was like for children in Britain during this time.  Although Britain was never invaded, everyone was involved in the war effort in some way, and everyone was affected by it.  Fortunately, World War Two is very easy to research and there are many suggested links included below.

 

Each week, we will be setting you a research task to carry out.  You might simply watch a few videos/ look at a website/ read a book/ talk to a family member to learn about it, or go further and record your work using writing, drawing, photos or video.  If you can, please feel free to post any work to the blog - we'd love to see it!

 

TASK 1: World War 2 TIMELINE (20.4.20)

You're used to making timelines for History in school, so this should be a good place to start.  Can you find out the key dates of World War Two and write them on pieces of paper or card, then put them into chronological order?  Are the dates AD/ CE/ BC/ BCE?  When you've done this, you could add some additional information - anything that you have found out (for example, my mother was born just before the start of World War Two, so I've added her to my timeline).  

There is an excellent timeline resource here:
