Summer Term Two 2020 ~ Your farewell half term!
Hello Year 6!
I hope you have had a really enjoyable May Spring Bank Holiday.
Hope you didn't get too sun burnt in week one!
Hope you didn't get too wet in week two!
You can access your weekly learning both from the links below and, preferably, from Seesaw where I will be able to comment on your home learning on a day-by-day basis.
Just for fun - guess the Carlton teacher from their baby/infsnt photographs.
Post your answers to Seesaw.
24 to guess!

Remember - Wherever you see the ( * ) symbol, this work is a little easier and offers confidence building activities (what we used to call 'Bronze' work in class.)
( * ) activities may not provide sufficient challenge for some of you, so if in doubt, please turn to the booklets without the ( * ) symbols first.
* New Art Competition.
We are pleased to offer a whole academy art competition, the deadline for which is Sunday, May 10th, 2020 @ 4:30 p.m.
Up for the challenge? Open the PowerPoint presentation below.
Also available on Seesaw portal.
Daily Learning (Monday - Friday): Summer Term 2020.
Introducing 'Ready For Seven.'
In your final term at Carlton Primary Academy, we are now looking towards keeping your skills sharp for your induction into year seven.
Each day, I will post you a 'Ready For Seven' learning booklet.
It is important that you attempt as much of the work as you can in preparation for your entry into KS3.
Stamina will be so important in year seven, as too will your ability to manage your own learning and homework.
There will be a balance of topics set throughout the week, though on Mondays, there will be a particular focus on English and Mathematics.
Please upload your learning to Seesaw if you are able to do so in order for me to give feedback on your hard work.
Remember, the more effort you put into your summer term, the easier autumn term in year seven will be!
Take care everyone.
Ready For Seven and Reading For Seven Activities:
Monday, April 27th 2020 - Friday May 1st 2020
Your learning! Your choice!
Daily 'Ready For Seven' booklets (English, Maths & Topic)
Daily 'Reading For Seven' booklets & *White Rose Maths Posts (*Seesaw only)
Wherever you see this symbol (*) this booklet contains Maths aimed at Bronze level (as used in class.)
Work hard. Play hard. Be safe.
Miss you all. Take care.
This week, your READING FOR SEVEN booklets are based around a classic poem by Edward Lear.
Monday - Read (Simply familiarize yourself with the text.)
Tuesday - Comprehension.
Wednesday - SPAG Focus (linked to the text.)
Thursday - Writing (linked to the text.)
Friday - Celebrate
For Friday, I offer a reflective activity based around the renewal and cycles of friendships in our lives, with a view to your exciting new school lives in September; a music appreciation task linked to a song with a choice of learning outcomes; some reading skills development where you are once again the reflective teacher; an invitation to start a lunar diary over the next seven days as well as observe the stars at night; some arithmetic work (just to keep those skills polished.)
Please post any work undertaken to Seesaw for me to review and comment on.
Just for fun... Play 'Family Fortunes' with a member of your family.
I have given you ten general knowledge questions.
For each question, try and guess what my top answer is.
If you guess correctly, you score 3 points.
Guess what my other three answers were to each question.
If you match any of my other answers, you earn 1 point for each answer.
I will upload my answers to the quiz on this website before 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 5th.
If you can, try and play along with a member of your family.
Let me know via Seesaw how you get on!
A SCHOOL CLOSURE MESSAGE FROM MR. SMITH TO ALL YEAR SIXES
THURSDAY, MARCH 26th, 2020
Hello all of you!
I hope that you are all keeping well and entertaining yourselves!
It is only in recent days that I have appreciated just how busy you lot have kept me since September!
I want to start by saying a huge well done and thank you to all the children who are working so hard on their IXL and Seesaw projects. It would be fantastic to see even more of you logging on to these sites using your individual passwords and accessing the many activities on offer. With so many creative tasks and projects, as well as English and Maths activities to keep your skills robust, you won't have time to feel bored!
A little skills rehearsal each day will put you in great stead for secondary school so attempt to spend some time each weekday trying out the variety of tasks on offer. If for whatever reason you have misplaced your codes, please contact school where someone will be able to provide you with your Seesaw and IXL logins again.
Each day, I am safely completing a 1 hour power walk around my village. It not only keeps me very fit, it also fires those powerful endorphins for the day ahead. In which ever way you can around the house, try to stay fit and balance your activities throughout the day. A schedule or timetable for the day ahead is a brilliant idea and it also helps to keep you motivated. One of my jobs today, once I have responded to your online work, is to tackle the back garden! Not one of my favourite chores admittedly but again, structure is a brilliant motivator. Help your parents around the house wherever you can and maybe discover a talent you never knew you had in the process!
Our time together has been cut short. However, the next step of your education is a huge leap. By keeping motivated and attempting just a handful of the tasks online each day will help you in September.
To those of you logging onto IXL and Seesaw each day, you are amazing! Know that I will endeavour to respond to your work within twelve hours of you posting it. Seesaw is also a brilliant way for you to keep in contact with your friends too!
Keep logging onto our class webpage for updates as well as following us on Twitter.
Most importantly, stay safe and look after each other.
You're all amazing and I hope to see you all soon.
Mr. R. Smith
Your first port of call for your child's home learning should be via the 'Seesaw' webpage using your child's unique login details. Simply search 'seesaw login.'
Here, you will find a variety of activities for your child to work on, updated and reviewed daily covering as many subjects as possible across the week.
Please encourage your child to attempt a minimum of two activities per day - it really will make the difference when they start secondary school in September.
Thank you for your continuing support.
