Year 6

Monday 18th - Friday 22nd May

ART WEEK

Hello Year 6 - Did you have a good weekend? I spent it jet washing my patio, weeding, walking, cycling and reading, for me it was blissful...apart form my boys moaning when I took their devices away, moaning because they miss their grandparents, moaning because it was bedtime, moaning because I asked one to read to me, moaning because we had walked "too far" and just generally moaning! It's been one of those weekends!

The following has come from Miss Webster and Mrs Petrou about this week's work:

In school the week before May half term is always an art week and we see no reason for this to change this year.  For one week only your children will focus solely on art.  Please look at the document attached/below.  The children can choose to focus on one challenge or if they are feeling very arty they may attempt them all.  As it is half term next week and no work will be set during this week, they could spend two weeks on these projects.

The theme is Nature Around Us and the challenges are based on using things they may find on their walks around parks and in your gardens to create art.  We hope you will have a lot of fun.  

We would then love to have a gallery of the children's work displayed on the website. If you would like send a picture of your child holding their art work and tell us what their enjoyed most about this activity, you can email this to Mrs Petrou - ctheo@ladbrooke.herts.sch.uk

Good morning Year 6, I hope you had a good day yesterday. I had some interesting questions emailed through to me! How did you get on answering the questions I set. Hopefully you learnt something whilst researching. Have any of you tried to answer Emma, Adrian or Eren's questions?

Remember, next week would have been Art Week at school and we would still like you to work on your artistic skills. I will be uploading the plan for the week on Monday and look forward to seeing what you produce.

Unfortunately, we lost the Rockstars Battle with Year 5  10,371  -  5153. But there was a big push today, the three main contributors were Kenny, Sasha and Ben but also playing were Kristian, Mack, Ella, Adrian, Emma, Tom and Issy - a big THANK YOU to you all.

Keep up with your Rockstars and your diaries (if you are still writing them!). How do you feel about the possibility of school opening, but things being very different to when you were last there?

Today, why not try:

Sudoku - Easy   Medium   Hard

Have a go at Adrian's homemade Sudoku

Cross Word - Sheet   Answers

You could also try someone's word search, make your own, make your own word art (look back to previous daily tasks to find out how to do this) or continue with the tasks on the grid uploaded on Tuesday.

Hello Year 6, how are you all?

Thank you for continuing to send me through your activities of the day. In particular, I really enjoy seeing pictures of your daily tasks, whether it's using the washing machine, picking wild flowers to later draw, baking flapjacks, ordering old photographs or building dens. Well done to those of you who have learned a new skill and are helping out at home. 

I would like to see a few more word searches and word art please!

Reminders

Rockstars Battle ends tomorrow. Currently, year 6 is losing! Year 5 9921  Year 6 2842! Come on Year 6! Thank you to Kenny, Kristian, Sasha, Ben, Ella, Emma, Issy and Adrian, who have been the other players in the battle for year 6.

Miss Webster sent an email asking you all to think about an image that would describe your time at Ladbrooke. This will hopefully be carved into wood for your Year 6 Leaver's Art Project. We would really like it if you could all contribute.

Have you finished reading a book recently? Why not write a review on it?

Have you had a go at someone else's word search? Emma's has all of your names in it! Can you find you own?

 

For today's task, I would like you to have a go at answering some (maybe all) of the questions below:

How long would it take to walk to the walk to the Artic circle? 

How old are you in hours and minutes?

Explain the origins of the Union Jack flag

How many times a day does your heart beat?

Where is the smallest bone in the body?

Which monarch has reigned the longest?

What is the name of the highest mountain in the world, where is it?

What is the world's most spoken language?

What is the best selling book of all time?

Can you think of an interesting question  that I can share with the class and they can try and answer?

Added by Adrian - How many hours until your next birthday?

Added by Eren - Is a dolphoin a fish?  How long would it take to walk to Mars?

Added by Emma - Which came first, the chicken or the egg? What fraction of the tallest peron in the world's heigh are you?

Added by Zac - What is the best selling board game?

Hello Year 6. I received lots of lovely photos and writing about the types of things you got up to yesterday, including baking, making marble runs, wordsearches and making dens. It all looked so good, thank you for telling me all about your news. In particular, those who sent me some wordsearches, thank you but I am unable to sahre them becuase they came through too big. If you could type them, that woud be helpful.

I hope you are enjoying the different activities. I would like you to try a few more today.

I would also like you, if possible, to try some Wordart. This wordart should contain words that remind you of your experiences in lockdown. Here's mine. Try and do it in the shape of a house, because that it where we have spent most of our time. Here is the link to the website I used*, but if you want to use another or even draw your own one, please do. I would really like to see these.

* The website link will take you to a page with an example on it. If you go to 'word list' and click on each of the words in the example, you can add your own words. If you don't want to use the amount of words they have, click on the word and then delete it by clicking on the bin at the top. Hope this helps.

Have you been on Rockstars yet this week? The battle with year 5 is still on!

Morning all. I hope you enjoyed yesterday's tasks. I was pleased to hear that some of you enjoyed the Dingbats; using it as a family game, was a wonderful idea that I heard from one person. 

Have you seen our teacher's messages to you all? It can be found on the homepage and is set to our school song. Let me know what you think. We really are missing you all.

Today, I would like you to choose one, two or three activities from the grid. Let me know what you choose, take pictures to show me what you did and how it turned out!
