Welcome to Year 6 Class

Class teacher: Mr King

In our class we also have Mrs Willson, Mrs Livermore and Miss Walton.

Wednesday 3rd June 2020

Good morning everyone. I hope you have all managed to settle back into the swing of things this half term and have found a good routine. Finding a good routine and managing your time is an important skill as you move through your time in education. Practising that skill now will certainly put you in good stead when it comes to organising homework next year.

It would be great if we could have some pictures of the boat investigation (see the learning document for full details) along with the weight that your boat was able to hold before sinking. That way we can have an overall class winner which hopefully I can share tomorrow.

Have a great day!

Well done to everyone yesterday who logged on and completed the work yesterday. Having looked at the maths answers in SATs Companion, I think some of you have got area area and perimeter mixed up. Here is a reminder as to what perimeter is https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvmxsbk/articles/zsr4k7h

I would recommend you watch this short video today to remind yourself what perimeter is. If you are still stuck please remember that there is the class e-mail account which your adult can access to ask for help if needed.

Welcome back everyone. I sincerely hope you had a great half term and are ready for the last half term of this school year. We are going to continue with the home learning and I am excited to see that some of you will be returning to school this week. If you are not coming back to school this week, I am very much still here to support you with your learning journey. We have approximately 7 weeks left together and no matter where your education is being carried out (in school or at home), it is important you continue with the same high standards that you have shown throughout the year. I very much look forward to seeing your work sent through to the class e-mail account along with any questions you may have.

The work for today is set below.

Have a great day!

Half term

Hello everyone I hope you have all had a fantastic half term and are ready for a break. I have left a document with some ideas for you to do underneath this section. These are not compulsory but just some suggestions of things you may choose to do during the half term break. There are also some suggested competitions for  you all to enter as I know how you competitive you can be!

I have also put a PowerPoint presentation on the right hand side with some information about what will be the same and what will be different in school when it reopens as I know some families have indicated that they would like their child to return on 1st June, as long as the government tests have been met. I would recommend reading it with your child as it may help them settle nerves if they have them or draw out some questions that they would like answered. I will be checking my email over half term so if you do have any questions please feel free to e-mail in and ask. Also, if you have any worries or concerns about anything else, please feel free to e-mail in and I will try my best to help you.

Finally I would like to say a big thank you for the video you created as a class. You really are a remarkable group of children who I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching. I hope to see you all soon.

Have a great half term!

Mr King

Well done to every this half term. It has been great talking to lots of the parents and children today about the work you have been doing, and it has been great to hear about how well you have handled this half term. You should all be very proud of yourselves. As a reward, I have changed the R.E lesson today to a golden time for each house.

Golden time is a reward in class where the class will do a fun activity set up by me. Today it will be slightly different because it will be the Year 6 pupil's job to set something up which they think the whole house will enjoy doing. It will then be the everyone else's job to have a go at the activity. I have left some suggested activities on the learning document for today but feel free to create your own ideas.

To the Year 6 pupils the advice I would give you is don't just do what you always do, but to try and create something new and exciting that you think all of the family will enjoy. The key to a good golden time is that everyone wants to take part and will have a good time!

Thank you again to everyone for their hard work this half term. I appreciate it has been a strange and possibly challenging one but you have all been stars!

Have a great day!

Mr King

.Good morning everyone I hope that you are well and have managed to find time to enjoy the sunshine and spend some quality time as a family in between completing the work. I realise that this has been a very strange and different half term, and as we near the end of it I have been reflecting on how you all must be feeling. I imagine it has been a real mixture of thoughts and feelings about school, but I would like each and everyone of you know that you are very much in my thoughts and although this is not the way any of us envisaged this half term going at the start of the school year, you are very much apart of the Woodham Ley community and will continue to be even when you all join your new schools in September. Please remember that if you are finding the work tricky or you need help, the school is still here wanting to support and help you. I have put the learning document for today along with the history document which you need.

Have a good day!

Mr King

Wednesday 20th May 2020

Thank you for the work which was sent to me yesterday I was impressed with the writing which I received as you had clearly been inspired with some of the ideas which you have come up with. I have set up a TTRockstars class tournament between boys and girls today as some chidlren have been asking for a rematch. it starts at 10:30 and finishes at 14:30. Good luck!

Have a great day!

Mr King

Tuesday 19th May 2020

I hope you all had a good Monday and are ready for the day ahead. I was impressed with some of the literacy that was sent to me. I really enjoyed the creative ideas you cam up with.

Thank you to everyone who has got in touch with the school and let us know whether you're child will be returning to school on the 1st June. If you have not got in touch yet, can you please do so. This way we can continue our risk assessments and planning for the children's return. 

Have a great day!

Mr King

Monday 18th May 2020

I hope everyone had a great weekend and found a way to enjoy some of the sunshine. I have posted the learning document below and hope you are all managing your time wisely. For today's geography lesson it will be important for you to use Google in order to help you research. Usually, I would leave suggested websites to help, but today I haven't. Being able to use the internet safely in order to help you with your learning when you get stuck will be a key skill when you move on to secondary school. Today is a bit of a practise to see how well you can manage. If there are any questions about the work, please make sure you use the class e-mail addressclass6@woodhamley.essex.sch.uk.

Have a great day!

Mr King

Friday 15th May 2020

Good morning everyone and well done for a great week. It was brilliant to talk with some of the parents and children yesterday and even better to hear how well you are all doing.

I am sure you are all aware that you are all aware of the plan for Year 6 children to return to school on the 1st June, providing that the country as a whole is ready to move into phase two of the lockdown restrictions being eased. A letter from Mr Walton was sent out to parents yesterday evening with some important information for parents. If you have not received this letter, please check the school jotter app as it will be there. If you are still unable to locate the letter, please e-mail the class e-mail account (class6@woodhamley.essex.sch.uk) and I will send you a copy of the letter.

I hope you all have a great Friday and an even better weekend. Thank you for all your hard work this week.

Good morning everyone! I hope you had a good day yesterday. Thank you to everyone who sent your poems and shadow shows in. They were great to watch and I was so impressed with the quality of the work. Keep it up! Apologies if you noticed there was no work posted on SATS Companion yesterday. Hopefully I have fixed that problem for today. 

Have a great day,

Mr King

Wednesday 13th May 2020

Hello again everyone. I hope you are all having a good week so far and are managing to complete the work. If it is possible, I would like you to send in the 'list poem' that I have asked you to create today. That way I can see all of your great ideas from the literacy which I have asked you to do over the past couple of days.

 

Have a great day,

Mr King

Tuesday 12th May 2020

Exciting news! We have entered a sport competition against other local primary schools in the area. To enter, follow the instructions in the document below, watch the video and send your results to class4@woodhamley.essex.sch.uk with your child's name and year group.

The last day to enter is Tuesday 19th May.

I was also mightily impressed with your SATs Companion scores yesterday.  they were all excellent.

Keep up the good work.

Good morning everyone. I hope you had a great day on Friday and enjoyed the great weather over the bank holiday weekend. The learning document is below for you all to work through today. The on;y thing I have changed this week is the maths. I have given you the choice to as to which one you would like to complete today. You only need to complete one of them and it is your choice as to which one you would like to do. I hope this will be helpful for all of your preferences. If there are any problems, please let me know.

Have a great day,

Well done for a great week everyone. It is great to hear how well you are coping and how well you are doing with the work. Today is obviously VE day and I know that many of you are taking part in family events to mark this special day. There are some activities to complete on the Year 2 page if you click here. These are suggested activities to complete if you would like to. They are not compulsory.

Whilst you are celebrating VE day take a moment to reflect in the way you will be remembered in 75 years time.  During our autumn topic, we studied the children and adults who were alive during WW2. We found out that people had to live through challenging circumstances and life was hard for them back then. We all agreed though that the people who were alive during WW2, who may have seemed ordinary, were extraordinarily resilient and remarkable people.

I have little doubt that in 75 years time from now, when 10-11 year olds study this time period in history at their school, you will all be remembered as extraordinary people too for the sacrifices that I know you are all making at this difficult moment. 

I hope you have a great day celebrating and if there any pictures of you celebrating VE Day it would be great to see them and display them on the class page.

Have a great bank holiday,

Mr King

Thursday 7th May 2020

This is our last official day of the week as tomorrow is a bank holiday. However, there will be some VE Day activities that will be put in the class page tomorrow that you may like to do. They are not compulsory but as it is a special occasion will be worth celebrating.

Finally, I would like to add how pleased I am with the presentation this week that i have seen. You have all upheld and excellent standard and I hope you are all proud of the work you have been producing because I am certainly proud to see how hard you are all working. 

Have a great day!

Thank you again to everyone who submitted the writing to me. it is great to see that so many children are trying to maintain the standard of work that they produce in class. Keep up the great work. 

I have put the Year 6 writing standards on a document below. We use this regularly in class and will serve as a helpful reminder as to what types of technical writing features should go into their writing. They do not need every single one of them, but it will give you an idea as to how successful the piece f writing has been.

Have a great day.

Good morning everyone. I hope you had a good Monday and found the work alright. Thank you to everyone who sent there stories to me yesterday. It was great to be able to give some structured feedback to the class based on the work you provided. I am hopeful that the children find the feedback useful. for when they write the third and fourth paragraph or when they edit and improve their opening two paragraphs.

I also hope that maths was good yesterday. If you haven't let me know how you are finding the change of website, not to worry, but it would be useful as a teacher to know so I know what works best for the class and individuals.

Keep up the great work!

Good morning Year 6 I hope you are ready for the week's learning. This week we are going to change the way you complete the maths. We are going to use a website, which you can find on the learning document, because I am hoping that you feel a supported a little bit better. It is important though that you watch the video all the way through and pause it when it tells yu pause and complete the activities in the order that video tells you to do so. I would very much appreciate it the adults could e-mail me and let me know your thoughts on the website as you are the people who are there with the children. 

This week you will also be writing your stories. If it is possible for the stories to be e-mailed to me at the end of every day, so I can have a read and then e-mail you back some feedback, that would be great. I usually check my e-mails at 6:00ish so anytime before that would be great.

Have a great day.

Friday 1st May 2020

Well done for another brilliant week everyone. From the phone calls home it is great to hear that lots of you are working hard. I know we haven't seen each other for a little a while now, but I want to remind you all of an important lesson and something which I hope you remember me saying in class. It is ok to get things wrong. Making mistakes in your learning is a good thing because it means you have been challenged. I very much see mistakes as an opportunity to grow and to improve.

Remember if you make mistake or you are unsure of how to solve a problem ask questions to people in your house who can help, research on the internet, use the toolkits or ask an adult to e-mail me so I can help. Everyone of you will want to do well in everything you try to do, and as a teacher I have been so impressed with your attitude, not just now but all year.  You are all brilliant children - stay positive, smile and keep working hard.

I hope you have a great day,

Mr King

Today we have a rematch of the boys vs girls TTRockstars tournament which starts at 11:00 and finishes at 12:00, we are going back in time to 3500BC to China and for literacy you will need to consider who the main character for your story is. Thank you again for the work that has been sent through. i was particularly impressed with the song that was made today!

Have a good day,

Wednesday 29th April 2020

Hello again. I hope you are all safe and well and enjoying your learning as much as you can. Well done to the boys yesterday as you managed to win the mini TTRockstars tournament. We will do another one later in the week girls so keep practising. You were only 220 points away from boys, which isn't that much in TTRockstar scores.

It is also an exciting day because it is international dance day! Who knew that dance had it's own day. I thought I would share this with you as I know many of you attend dance classes or even enjoy dancing. I can even remember one child dancing on top of the aerial assault course at Stubbers whilst blindfolded! 

If you enjoy dancing, why not find your favourite piece of music and create your own dance, learn a new style dance, or try and teach your mum, or dad, how to dance! My son has already told me we will be doing the Sleeping Bunnies dance again tomorrow! For those of you who want to know what that is here is a link to it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vk0b3fUL0Z8 - It's safe to say after having to do this every day I am looking forward to teaching you all again!

Have a great day dancing everyone!

Thank you for all the work that has been emailed me today. It was great to see the children completing the work to a good a standard. The maps looked brilliant and I was pleased to see that the features I had asked to be put on were in the correct place. Please keep hold of your maps as we will be adding to them next week.

I have also set up a class TTRockstars competition between boys and girls. It is only a short one because it starts at 11:00 and will finish at 12:00 today. Try and log on between these times so that you score points for your team.

Finally the answers to the riddles yesterday are:

  1. Egg
  2. Your age
  3. David - he has the same parents as Snap and Crackle
  4. Piano
  5. Short

Have a great day!

We finished first as a school and, as a class, we scored the third highest points out of any class! That is a great effort! I have left some more details with scores on the class learning document for today.

Finally, I was asked some riddles yesterday and I thought it would be interesting to see who in the class can solve them. I managed to get 4/5. I wonder who can get all 5?

  1. What has to be broken before you can use it?
  2. What goes up but never comes down?
  3. David’s parents have three sons: Snap, Crackle, and what’s the name of the third son?
  4. What has many keys but can’t open a single lock?
  5. What five-letter word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it?

I'll put the answers up tomorrow.

I have been blown away by some of the work this week and the dragon drawings are perhaps the highlight of the week! The detail and the care you have taken over them is brilliant and you should all be very proud of the effort you have put in. The poems are also brilliant. 

Finally, a big well done for your effort on TTRockstars yesterday. You have moved up to the fifth place and with a bit of effort, and everyone logging on, you should be able reach third place! Remember the competition finishes on Sunday at 15:00 so keep logging on over the weekend and see if you can help Woodham Ley to finish in first place

Thursday 23rd April 2020

Happy St George's Day! Today's learning has a St George's day theme to it. St George is the patron saint of England. Patron saints are chosen as special protectors or guardians over areas of life. These areas can include occupations, illnesses, churches, countries, causes - anything that is important to us. 

Very little is known about St. George’s life, but it is thought he was a high ranking officer in the Roman army who was killed in around AD 303.

It seems that the Emperor Diocletian had St. George tortured to make him deny his faith in Christ. However despite some of the most terrible torture even for that time, St George showed incredible courage and faith and was finally beheaded near Lydda in Palestine. His head was later taken to Rome where it was interred in the church dedicated to him.

Stories of his strength and courage soon spread throughout Europe. The best-known story about St. George is his fight with a dragon, but it is highly unlikely that he ever fought a dragon, and even more unlikely that he ever visited England, however his name was known there as early as the eighth-century.

In the Middle Ages the dragon was commonly used to represent the Devil. Unfortunately the many legends connected with St. George’s name are fictitious, and the slaying of the ‘Dragon’ was first credited to him in the 12th century.

St. George, so the story goes, killed a dragon on the flat topped Dragon Hill in Uffington, Berkshire, and it is said that no grass grows where the dragon’s blood trickled down!

King Edward III made him the Patron Saint of England when he formed the Order of the Garter in St. George’s name in 1350, and the cult of the Saint was further advanced by King Henry V, at the battle of Agincourt in northern France.

An interesting piece of trivia – Shakespeare was born on or around St. George’s Day 1564, and if the story is to be believed, died on St. George’s Day 1616.

Thank you to everyone who sent in work today it was great to see the photos and videos. I was particularly impressed with the poems that were performed and written.

Wednesday 22nd April 2020

I hope you all had a good day yesterday. Well done to everyone for their individual efforts on TTRockstars. We are currently the 4th highest scoring class out of 26 classes and a a school we are currently the highest scoring school - but only just! Keep logging on and scoring points because it would be great to be in the top three highest scoring classes as well as the highest scoring school. The learning for today is below.

Have a great day. 

Mr King

Tuesday 21st April 2020

Well done to everyone who completed the work today. I hope you were all able to get back into the swing of things after the Easter break. I have left the learning for today below and I have also left the answers for the map of Asia in a document below to.

Hello again! I hope you and everyone in your family are well and had as good as Easter as you could have had. I am sure you will be aware that we will be starting this half-term in the same fashion that we finished the last one. The website will be updated before 10:00 every day so that you have the home learning for that day. You all impressed me immensely last half-term with the dedication and quality of your work. My expectations of how you conduct yourself with regards to the work is exactly the same, so please continue to make the effort to make your work as good as it can possibly be. Knowing you all as I do, I am certain you will continue to impress me and the adults in your family. 

It would be great this half term if we could continue to use the class e-mail account. It is there for you to send examples of work that you are proud of and want to share or to ask for help when you need it. The email address class6@woodahmley.essex.sch.uk just in case you have forgotten.

Finally, I would like to say a huge well done to a young man who appeared on television sharing a superb message with the country. Mental health is of huge importance every day but perhaps even more so now. The tips in the video are great and if you are feeling in the blue, red or yellow zone I highly recommend you have a go at them. The link to the video is below.

TT Rockstars Results

The scores are in and the winners are... The Boys! Well done to everyone who took part. the final score was boys 41,206 and girls 33,731. A brilliant effort all round.

I have added a pdf below which gives certificates to the top three performers for boys and top three performers for the girls. Have a look and see if you made the top 3 on your team.

Have a great Easter!

Friday 3rd April 2020

It is fitting that with the final official day of learning before what should be the Easter school holidays we look back and celebrate the successes that we have achieved this term. There have been some brilliant achievements both in and out of the classroom. All of your learning has progressed in all subjects since Christmas and in the last round of assessments you all reached your end of year targets or were very close to it which at this stage of the year is fantastic. You have all been kind to each other and worked incredibly hard in school and then at home in slightly stranger school surroundings.

You should all take a moment today to think about things you are proud of and then set some targets for the summer term. There is still a term left with me as your teacher and my expectations of work hard every day, be kind and don't be afraid of mistakes - learn from them - will still apply in exactly the same way they have this term.

I'm sure I speak on behalf of the entire Year 6 team when I say a big well done to you all this term!

Have a great Friday!

Mr King

Thursday 2nd April 2020

Thank you for all the work submitted today. It is great to see the whole family joining in with the learning and I am sure the children have appreciated the help and support you are giving right now. 

I am pleased to inform you that the TTRockstars competition has certainly become a lot more interesting today. The score has been posted on the document below. A big well done to the children who read and passed a quiz today. We are getting much closer to Year 5 as a result.

Mrs Curtis and I also wanted to pass on our congratulations to those children who have logged on to Charanga and put in some real time and effort. One young lady has completed over two hours worth of work and young man has completed well over an hour. 

Have a great Thursday!

Mr King

Wednesday 1st April 2020

I hope and trust you are all. It has been great to see the work made today. the jingles, which have been submitted, have all been excellent. I was particularly impressed with how the lyrics were in time with the backing track. I am very much looking forward to the television adverts you will produce this week - don't forget to be as creative as possible! 

Our word count has shot up by 200,000 words today and we are currently on 5,312,788. This is nearly an increase of 400,000 words compared to this time last week which is great. 

Another special mention to the Rockstar Jakob Bradford who has scored over 5000 points for the boys' team this week. To give you an idea about how fantastic that is, the next nearest player is a girl who has 1900 points!

Lastly, please remember that although today is April Fool's Day you should be mindful of the other members of your house and the messages you send to friends via social media. Under strange circumstances such as this, it is perhaps even more important to remember everyone's right to respect. By all means have fun, but before, if at all, you decide to try and 'fool' someone think very carefully about the effect your 'joke' could have on that person and whether it is an appropriate thing to do given the current climate.

I trust you will make good choices because you have been an excellent class to teach this year!

Have a great day!

Tuesday 31st March 2020

Well done to everyone for yesterday's work. it was great to see so many children log on to TTRockstars and compete in the boys vs girls competition. I have added the score to TTRockstars section on the document. A big well done to the young man who finished his book yesterday and helped the class word count increase by over 80,000 words!

I set a challenge to an individual student about how to draw using perspective and you can see their amazing work in the photo's to the right. If you would like to have a go at the challenge, the link to the video is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnJtAu-uF-8

I hope you have all attempted a Random Act of Kindness today and have put some thought into what you could do tomorrow.

Finally, a while a go I set the class the challenge of juggling 3 balls for a minimum of ten seconds. If you are stuck for what to do, now would be the perfect time to try and work on this target.

Have a great Tuesday.

Mr King

Monday 30th March 2020

 I hope you have all had a great weekend and are still safe and well. I have left the work for this week below. You all worked so hard last week and I know that you will meet the challenges set this week with ease due to your hard-working attitudes.

Don't forget that although school work is still important it is important that you help out around the house. Random Acts of Kindness (RAK's) are something which have been discussed in school. Think about what Random of Acts of Kindness you can do this week. It could be helping to wash up after dinner, helping to tidy the house or making a card for someone special to say thank you for something that they have done for you. If everyone manages to do one every day, then by the end of next Sunday, as a class, you would have done 210 Random Acts of Kindness in total.

Have a great Monday!

Mr King

Friday 27th March 2020

 I can't believe it is Friday already. Where has this week gone? A huge well done again to everyone for the attitude you are showing towards your learning. It's been great to see children achieve trophies in the Sats Companion work, move up levels on TT Rockstars and finish books and quizzes today. Fingers crossed Friday is just as good as the previous days.

Just a quick message to also say that if for whatever reason you are unable to complete activities such as the cooking due to not having the right resources to hand please do not stress or worry. I am more than happy for you to try them on a different day when it is more convenient or if it is virtually impossible to do to find something else productive to do.

I hope you all have a good Friday!

Mr King

Thursday 26th March 2020

Hooray! We have reached 5 million words read as a class which is a terrific achievement. At this pace we are on track to read just over 8 million words by the end of the school year which is a considerable number of words read.

I have added the learning document for today to our class page for you to try and complete, but remember that although I am setting work for you, there is nothing stopping you from setting yourself some targets that will help you to achieve your life ambition. If you want to be an athlete - make sure you are exercising at the right intensity and often, if you want to be an author – write some stories or read to gather ideas, if you want to travel world - research other countries and plan the route you want to journey along or if you want to be better at a specific skill – practise it. In order to be an expert at something it is believed that you need to deliberately practise that skill for 10,000 hours!

I hope you and your families are all well.

Have a great Thursday!

A big well done to everyone yesterday for their efforts on TT Rockstars and Sats Companion. It was great to see some children who were unable to do the maths on Monday, because of website difficulties, catch up and even more children completed the work set today!

Well done to all the children who moved up a level on TT Rockstars yesterday. I believe I counted 4 which is great progress! There will be a competition starting next week between the boys and girls so keep practising as you have been.

I have set today's learning in the document shown below. 

Finally for today, I hope you are all continuing to be the thoughtful, resilient individuals who have done nothing but impress me day in and day out this year. I am positive you will be putting your best foot forward during this unusual time. Keep up the great work.

Have an excellent day!

I hope you all had a good first day at home and were able to access the learning I left yesterday. I checked Sats Companion yesterday afternoon and noticed that the website was updating, so if you were unable to access the maths work from Monday, you could always catch up on it today. Having said this, I was pleased to see that nearly all the children who were able to log in to Sats Companion either achieved the trophy or were very close. A big well done to the children who achieved 100%!

Today's learning is shown in the document below.

Have a great Tuesday!

Update: I've just logged in to Sats Companion and noticed that some of the children have maybe found the maths a little tricky today which is perfectly fine because it is good to be challenged. Here are some links to videos that I found which might help you.

First of all I would like to say a massive well done to all of Year 6. The maturity, kindness and resilience you have all shown over the past two weeks has been nothing short of perfection. I am an incredibly proud teacher and I know that you will continue to uphold the excellent learning habits that you show day in and day out at Woodham Ley. 

The learning for Monday 23/3/20 is on the document below. Although I am not with you, continue to take pride in your work and use the resources you have around you to find a solution to your problems. This may involve using the internet to research a task, asking a family member who could help, or messaging another child in the class. I have little doubt that if you are able to organise your time effectively, you will continue to make excellent progress much like you have all done this academic year.

Home Learning Photos

One last video before the Easter weekend. Well done to the creator of it. You have worked exceptionally hard and produced something which looks extremely professional!

Thank you all so much for sending the photos in of your home learning. It was great to see some photos of the children doing the work, and great to hear on the phone today that all families are well as well as hearing that the children are all trying their best with the work. I must say I am very impressed with the dinners you have cooked, the models you have built and the work that has been produced. Keep up the excellent work!
