Sorry - I have had a problem uploading the files. You can find them on You Tube if you would still like to use the music. If not, just have a go without the backing music.
It was lovely to see so many of you last week during our class Zoom meeting! We will do the same this week but perhaps with a little activity you can join in with. I will send a Dojo message to your parents to let you know the day and time.
Some of you may have already seen this, but if anyone is interested in learning a dance, here is the link to the Octagon Theatre's most recent project. In school, we are going to have a go - I wonder how many of you will join in too! You could always send us your videos to watch and keep us entertained in school!
Every year, the Year 6 children are invited to Wells Cathedral to take part in a Pilgrim day to celebrate their achievements as part of a Church of England school. The day begins and ends in the beautiful cathedral with an opening and closing service. During the day, the children also take part in a variety of workshops and meet other children.
Although sadly this year we are not able to physically attend the Pilgrim Day, the Diocese have put together a virtual service. In school we will carry out the service on Tuesday. I have added the link which includes all of the videos and resources you will need if you would like to take part from home. If you are a Year 5 and would like to have a look, please do. I hope you enjoy it!
Thank you to those of you who have sent me some of your super work you have been doing at home. It is so lovely to see what you have all been doing. It was great to welcome a group of Year 6 children back to Willow Class last week and although things are a bit different in school, we had a really good week. We miss the rest of you - please keep sending in your work so we can share it together!
For the work below, please continue with the Island project for literacy. I have added a resource pack to help with the shelter work if you want it. Don't feel you have to use it but it's there for those who do. Maths continues in the same way with the videos on the White Rose website and the worksheets below as usual.
Finally, remember if you manage to complete the tasks quickly, see what else you can come up with - be as creative as you can! Search the internet and see what links you can find - are there any special dates to be celebrated? Does a famous person have a birthday this week? Can you write a story about the changes we have faced over the past few months? For those of you who haven't already taken part, take a look at the Wildlife Trust's '30 days Wild' activities - see what you can complete!
I am now changing the style of your literacy home learning to fit with Oak and Maple Class. As some of you have siblings in those classes, you might even want to share ideas or work together on certain areas of learning. I am setting the Island project which the children coming into Willow Class next week will also take part in. This week in school we have given the first week a go and it has been really good fun! There are a range of tasks to work through between now and the end of term. Work at your own pace and don't worry if you don't complete the whole thing but have fun and be creative! It would be great to see some of your island designs and pieces of writing.
For anyone who has completed their spellings already - well done! The spellings sent home just before we closed included all the spelling patterns you needed to learn by the end of the Summer Term.
If you are really confident with using all of those spellings, check this list of statutory spelling and see what you can/can't spell and learn the ones you need to.
If you are really confident with those, try writing some sentences, a poem, a story (or any other piece of writing) to include some of the words you have learnt. Do you know all of their meanings too?
