Good Morning Year 6!

We hope that you enjoyed your extended weekend for the VE Day celebrations. We both enjoyed lunch in the garden with plenty of scones and clotted cream - it was delicious!

Have you watched Mrs Roser's YouTube film premiere? She was very nervous but we hope you enjoyed the message - keep watching  because there may be more to come!

Our new topic this week is Sea Voyages and through your learning you may find out more about the Mayflower 400 Celebrations. This week, we hope to see you performing poetry because we are sure you will amaze us, as always, with your creativity and ideas. Remember to send them to us on our class email.

Have fun with fractions and if in doubt cut up a pizza or cake to help you and then you can eat it afterwards! Please remember to send us a message with any questions or help that you need or even just to say hello.

So keep moving, exploring, questioning and laughing and we hope to see you very soon.

Welcome to another week Year 6!

We hope that you heard your special shout-out last Monday on Radio Devon. There won't be many classes that will have had that!

Thank you once again for all of your fantastic learning - we hope that you have enjoyed sharing the pictures and seeing what you have been doing. This weekend we have both been busy baking scones and banana bread and had the reward of eating them! We were inspired to do this by the messages and photos that you sent us of your baking.Thank you for sending in your fabulous words for our word wall - let's see if we can have even more next week. 

Don't forget that this week is shorter because Friday is a bank holiday to mark VE Day. Please send us any photos of things that you do - maybe dress up in red, white and blue or make some bunting?

We hope that you have fun with your learning this week and we think you will enjoy the writing activities all about doors! Good luck with your maths and check out the Space tasks.

Hello Year 6 and Welcome to the Week!

We are certainly going to need to give out plenty of reading stickers to you all and you can now find lots of AR books to read online and also listen to different audiobooks. Check out the information sheets from Mrs Wilson on here.

We really enjoy replying to the learning that you send in - please let us know if you are happy for it to be shared on here or if it is just for us to see. Check on MyMaths because we do leave feedback from each task smiley

Let's see how many pictures we can have next week in our 'Learning Gallery'. Please send your pictures to our new class email address which is:

Home Learning for the Summer Term

Monday 20th April

Hello to our fabulous Year 6 Class!

We hope that you are all well and have been able to enjoy the sunshine as well as manage your learning at home. This week the theme is our Local Area so it will link to our learning last term when we were mapping out the areas of the town.

We do understand that this is a really strange time for everyone so please try to remember to do what you can, keep smiling and keep active! We are both trying to keep moving with Joe Wicks or by running  - a bit like our DPA and Golden Mile at school. We are also making time to read each day so we can earn some more stickers for our reading charts!

Although we can't see you all at the moment, we would love to hear about the things that you are doing and how you are getting on. We now have a class email address that you can contact us on and you can also send pictures of your learning for us to share.  Yesterday, our Body Language song came onto the radio  which was a brilliant reminder of your dance performance and the amazing class that you are. Remember this over the next few weeks and look after yourselves.

We hope to see you very soonwink

Good Morning Year 6 and Welcome to the Easter Holiday!

We hope that you enjoyed your learning last week and had the chance to try something new. It seems very strange not to see you all each day so it has been lovely to see the photos you have sent in showing us your learning. Both of us have been doing the Joe Wicks workout each day and it is proving to be quite challenging - give it a go if you haven't yet! 

Over the Easter break, we have challenged you to complete our Egg-cellent Easter Bingo! There are 10 activities to try and if you complete them all we will send you a well-deserved certificate. Please send us any photos of you taking part to:

admin@ashburton-primary.devon.sch.uk 

Have fun over Easter and each day see if you can do something to make someone smile smiley Your next set of home-learning challenges will be posted in a couple of weeks.

Take care, keep safe and keep smiling :)

Hello!

We hope that you are all managing to keep active and if possible get out into the sunshine. Here is a link for PE activities that you can try at home.

Keep smiling and keep moving!

Good morning Year 6!

Here are some things for your home learning this week. These are for you to use if you think they will be helpful. Having a timetable can really help you to organise your day - you can also design your own. Each day try to do plenty of different things and be as creative as you can.This might be a time to learn a new skill as well.

Take care and enjoy the sunshine,

Mrs Roser and Mrs McCauley
