Good Morning Year 6!
Sadly I am not in school today: I am still poorly with COVID
8:40 - 9:00
This morning, for your settling in activity, please could you read your class reader: Holes - shared reading. Read the next two chapters in preparation for reading comprehension later in the week.
9:05 - 10:20 English
9:05 - 9:35 Pupils will look through GPS papers and evaluate their own strengths and weaknesses.
Adults will collate information about question type strengths and weaknesses through discussions with pupils. Pupils will share their understanding and interpretation of questions and set mini- self targets of areas to improve.
9:35 - 10:05 Pupils read through their Reading papers, as above.
For both papers: adults to demonstrate correct steps to success and thinking route, modelling thinking aloud - as a whole class or in small group work.
Intervention groups will focus on content questions where there is a greater area of weakness for higher numbers of pupils.
10:05 - 10:20 TAG reading, with pupils using reciprocal reading skills to interrogate text and question the reader to check understanding.
10:20 - 10:40
It's break time already!
Enjoy the sunshine!
Can you do the daily mile?
10:40 - 11:00 Assembly
11:00 : 12:00 MATHS
11:00 - 11:15
Let's get our brains maths shape!
Flashback learning - keep all those previously learnt areas of maths to the forefront of your mind.
Print off and glue in pupil books.
Self mark or peer mark.
Then, have a look through your assessment papers from last week, just as you did with the GPS and Reading papers before break time. Can you see where you were successful and where you went wrong? Can you reflect and evaluate areas you still need to revise and rehearse? Set yourselves a mini target. Whay can you work on over the Easter holiday?
Discuss with your adults which questions and areas of maths you feel you need to continue to work on.
Questions most pupils struggles with will be the focus for intervention work and/or whole class teaching will be tailored to match areas of need.
Time for lunch!
Enjoy the fresh air - keep active.
Eat up all your lunch and keep hydrated.
1:00 - 2:00 SCIENCE:
You will need:
Coloured pieces of paper around the room
Prisms from science resources
Worksheets p/copied for pupils
Success criteria printed off and cut to stick in pupil books
Adult and Pupil:
'I do, we do'
If time allows, pupils can draw on their reading comprehension knowledge and complete a non-fiction science text:
2:00 - 3:00 P.E. - hockey skills.
Continue with the two warm up hockey skills activities introduced last week.
After a quick 5 minute warm-up, try these quick tasks to help you get hockey-minded before you split into 4 teams and play 4 x 10mins each way games, swapping ends of the pitch halfway through each game - especially if the sun is out and one team is at a disadvantage.
Your adult will choose the teams.
