https://www.stphilipevansprm.cardiff.sch.uk/year-6-4/

 

The weekly overview will be found each week in the 'Weekly Overview' star. Any additional resources will be found in the 'Home Learning Guidance' star. Mrs Henton, Mrs Jones and Mrs Roberts will be adding work to the 'Additional Tasks' star. Any child with an IEP will need to go to the 'SEN and IEPs' star where Mrs Rees will be adding some resources for you later in the week. We will be sharing and celebrating excellent examples of work in the 'Celebrating Home Learning Success star'. 

Easter holiday home learning 

 

Well done Year 6 for your home learning so far. We have now reached the Easter holidays and next week is the most important week in our Church's liturgical year. Since we are unable to take part in our usual Holy Week assemblies and attend Mass as we usually would, we have provided you with a list of suggested Holy Week activities for your home learning over the Easter holidays. The list of suggested activities is attached as a word document below. You can choose which activities you complete and you do not have to complete all of the activities. It is not compulsory to upload evidence of these activities but if you do wish to upload any evidence a Holy Week assignment tab has been created on Google Classroom for you. If you wish to upload evidence gather it all and simply upload once. 

 

We have also attached below a pdf version of The Stations of the Cross, the Easter copy of your Wednesday Word and some suggested prayers. 

 

If you wish to continue with your other learning over the Easter break please continue to use your online platforms: Mathletics, Spellodrome, Giglets, Active Learn and Espresso. 

 

Please ensure you use the Easter Break as an opportunity to get rested and do not over work yourself. We wish you and your families a calm and relaxing Easter. 

 

Stay safe

Distance learning tasks

 

We have attached a word document below which contains a timetable of all of your distance learning tasks for next week. Each week you will have 5 maths, 5 literacy, 3 context and 2 RE tasks to complete. The majority of these tasks will be completed using one of our online platforms. However, some tasks may be completed in learning logs. The timetable clearly states where you should complete each task. 

 

If you are directed to complete a task on HWB, please follow these directions: 

 

  • Log into HWB
  • Go to Google classroom
  • Click on the 'Classwork' tab
  • Go to the section 'Distance learning tasks'
  • The task will be clearly titled with instructions
  • Don't forget to hand in (this way we can provide you with feedback on your work)

 

The 'Our Faith' section of our class page contains our 'Daily Examen' so that you can carry this out yourself at home. 

 

 

Thank you for your continued support during this time. Stay safe, stay healthy and remember to keep your mind and body as active as you can!

Science week

 

Next week is Science week!

 

Get creative and enter the British Science Association’s annual poster competition. You can make your poster about whatever version of ’Our diverse planet’ you like and enter our UK-wide competition with the chance to win some exciting prizes.

 

Investigate and imagine ‘Our diverse planet’ and everything that makes it special. Here are some topic ideas to get you started: Why not think about biodiversity? From the diversity in your own garden, to the diversity at the very bottom of the ocean, research all the amazing creatures and organisms that live on our planet. The diversity of science and STEM subjects. Have a think about all the diverse ways that science affects our lives and who you know that uses science every day. Is there science in baking and cooking? What about making a film or taking a picture? Or how about operating planes and cars? Remember that science is everywhere, you just have to look for it! Think about the other kinds of diversity our planet contains – from the variety of the molecules that make up essential parts of life, to the different ways our towns and cities are built, and the variation of people’s tastes and interests. Our planet is unique, but why not investigate what makes it different from others. It’s up to you on what you research and what you put on your poster.

Half term homework – Eisteddfod preparation

 

Whole School Competitions

 

 Welsh Learner of the Year-The children are encouraged to use what they have been learning in school to showcase their knowledge and understanding of the Welsh language. They may choose to write some phrases or sentences, a letter, conversation or celebrity profile in Welsh. The children must also write a paragraph in English explaining why they think they should be ‘Welsh Learner of the Year’. There is a very useful online dictionary on the website bbclearnwelsh which will be helpful when the children are writing in Welsh.

 

3D Modelling Competition – Children are encouraged to make a 3D model of something which represents Wales for them. Children may use whichever means of media they wish and the topic is broad to encourage creativity.

 

 Cookery Competition - Children are encouraged to cook something which is a traditional Welsh recipe or depicts Wales to them.

 

Young Performer Competition- As part of our Eisteddfod this year we are also encouraging the children to showcase their talents. Auditions will take place in class on Tuesday 25th February. Two children will then be chosen to represent their class during our Eisteddfod celebration. The children may like to prepare a song or dance, recite a poem or play a musical instrument.

 

The Advantages of Learning Welsh – Children to present the advantages of learning Welsh, using Google slides or Google sites. Please consider the following questions: Why is learning Welsh important? Why is learning Welsh a lifelong skill? What are the benefits of learning Welsh? If children decide to use the tools available on Hwb it is then their responsibility to download the file and save it into the Eisteddfod entry folder in their pupil folders on Monday 24th February. If any support is needed to do this, please see class teachers. Alternatively, competition entries completed on the computer be burnt onto a disc and handed to class teachers.

 

A Welsh Song - To write and perform a song highlighting the advantages of learning Welsh. The song could include Welsh words and phrases. Auditions will take place at lunchtime on Tuesday 25th February in the Year 6 classroom. Please ensure that all entries are solely completed by the children themselves. We look forward to seeing the fantastic contributions which will play a vital part in celebrating the heritage and culture of Wales during our Eisteddfod.
