Year 6 (Fireflies)

Hi Fireflies,

                It's the last week! Let's make the most of this time. 

 

               Planning for this week is on the web-page. This is the last pieces of work that you do at Wilstead so make them epic! On Monday, the school is closed for inset day (so remember you don't need to come in this day). On Wednesday, we are having our end of year leaver's celebrations after school. It will be our last chance to say goodbye to the school and our friends. 

 

               See you all Wednesday

 

Mr Kerin

Hi Fireflies, 

               Two weeks to go until we say our goodbyes. A letter will be going out this week to confirm the date and time of our end of year Leavers Celebration Picnic. Hopefully, you can all attend and make it as fun as possible. 

               Conformation that all year 6 children are to home school on Friday due to parents meetings with my new class (sorry for any inconvenience ). All of the home learning planning will be available here. Any problems please contact the office. 

               Reports will be going out next week for all leavers. To complete these I need a paragraph from the children that will be added to the report. This should be about their learning. It's really nice to hear what the children think about their learning. I will need it ASAP, so I need time to input them into the documents. I will leave this section blank if I don't receive anything from you. 

              This week, Miss Hinds, has organized a whole school Sports day/week. Attached are the instructions for each activity. After you have practised and performed the activity, enter the results into the online file (see letter sent out about this). You are competing for your house, so try your hardest but be honest with your results. Good Luck All! There is also a copy of the Mid-Beds Cultural Triathlon - organized by the borough - for everyone to have a go at too. 

               Finally, if you have any ideas for the picnic, games or activities, then please let me know. Hopefully we can try and make it happen to the best of our ability.

Alex Rider Graphic Novel - Giant Jellyfish Tank

Hi Fireflies 

 

Only three weeks to go now till the end of year. The Hoodie website will end today, so make sure you have yours ordered (there are lots of great colours being chosen already). Also, please send in your poem video, your good bye Wilstead video and your award nominations this week so I can get them ready. 

        Can parents let me know if the picnic at school is ok for them please. 

 

Finally, its the Wixam's Virtual Transition Day this Wednesday, either at school or at home. If you are not involved with this then please complete the activities I have created for you. This week I have added some Oak National Academy work to the afternoons. The rest of the school are using these web lessons, so it will be interesting to here your feedback on them. You do need to have access to the internet for them. There is one on BLM and another on WW1.

Stay safe,

Hi Fireflies,

 

This week we will be targeting conforming all the ideas we want for our leavers celebrations - from colour of hoodies to design of a year book, from awards to a video compilation. It is really important that if you have an idea, or a strong view on what you would like for leavers, that you let me know. To be able to get everything that we want we really need to order it by Friday at the latest. This means ideas need to be in no later than Wednesday. I will make sure that all children still home learning have their say and are included in all the decisions. 

Thanks for all your ideas already. 

 

This week Miss Brown will be introducing Marvellous Me, an online app that allows teachers to engage with parents and tell them about their child's learning and successes. You will each be sent an individual login later in the week. More info will follow. 

 

Mr Kerin

Hi Fireflies,

 

Hope you have had a good first week back in Summer term 2. It's been great seeing so many back in school, and good to see work from some of the ones still home learning. Please try to keep sending in your work each week for me to look at. 

 

Over the next few weeks we are going to focus on creating an end of year celebration / presentation. The majority of your afternoon sessions are designed for you to be creative and come up with some ideas we could use to celebrate your time at Wilstead. The more ideas the better. 

 

Finally, below is the website and password for this weeks Virtual Science Trip. It is valid for 1 week.

Have a great week 

 

Mr Kerin 

Hi Fireflies,

                I hope you have all had a relaxing sunny break and are now raring to do some work!

 

This week, some of you will be coming into school while others are continuing to home school. I will continue to post the weeks activities on this page. Everyone will be completing the same work whether in school or at home. If you are coming to school you will need to have completed the work given for each day (for example; work through Tuesday's work on Tuesday because we will be doing Wednesday work on Wednesday). 

 

I'm looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday. 

 

Mr Kerin

 

ps well done Zuzia for your fantastic Shang Dynasty power point presentation. Hope you don't mind me sharing it on here for everyone to see? 

Hi Fireflies,

 

Thank you for all the great work and photos, I think I have heard from almost everyone this week. It has been really good to see everyone working hard and trying new things (the cooking you have been doing has been unbelievably delicious). We might need to have more cooking lessons when we get back to school. 

 

If you have been watching the news, then you might have heard that we  (the year 6's) could be returning to school as early as 1st June. However this is not official yet, but it seems inevitable that we will return sometime in June. With this in mine, I would like to hear how you are feeling about it - both positive and negative feelings. Your literacy writing task is a Balanced Argument, so you could use this to express your feelings. Anything you mention could help me when planning what activities to do when we're back. 

 

Please stay safe and know that I am proud of how you have worked during this time.

 

Mr Kerin

 

Remember to scroll down the whiterose maths to week 3 (simplifying fractions), and that you don't need to print off any of the pdf's or word documents (you can if you wish).

Hi Fireflies, 

 

You may be having problems with the Whiterose maths task today, I'm sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. The website has decided to stop allowing non subscribers to open their worksheets from today. However, I have the next 2 weeks of activity worksheets downloaded so will post them on this page from now on (you will find the whole of this weeks below). Remember we should be working through the week 2 - wc 27th April - work on the website as we are a couple of weeks behind them. You might need to scroll down the page to find it.  

 

I have also attached some more of the children's work and photos. The food that has been sent to me looks delicious, I'm already craving pizza and Chinese. 

 

Thanks for your understanding

 

Mr Kerin

Hi Fireflies,

 

Thanks for everyone that has sent in work this week. Make sure you keep in contact at least once a week. I have put up more examples of work, so look out for yours. Let me know how your cooking went this week, have we got any budding Jamie Olivers or Nigellas? 

 

I hope everyone is coping well at home, if you have any fun interesting activities you want to share with the rest of the class, then send it to me and I'll post it on this page. 

 

If you have any questions, not just work, then please get in contact and I will try to find a solution. 

 

Take care 

 

Mr Kerin
