Our home learning will look a little different from now on as some pupils begin to return to school.
Daily activities will be as normal:
There will be a daily English and Maths lesson from the Oak National Academy and a foundation lesson from different sources – please follow the links from the weekly plan document which will be uploaded here each week. None of these activities need to be printed and can be completed on a piece of plain or lined paper.
Don’t forget you can upload examples of anything you do to the blog and we will respond or if you like you can share on Facebook or email it to us. Any other work, please share with us through the year group email or the blog. If the children need support/help, feel free to email us on email@example.com
Take care and stay safe.
Mrs Perry, Mr Gibbs, Miss Williams and Mrs Howarth
The day of the Triffids has been turned into an audio book by Mr Gibbs and Mrs Perry. This can be found in the video resource library or by clicking on this link: https://milton-park-primary-school.primarysite.media/playlist/the-day-of-the-triffids
We hope you enjoy listening. Final chapters will be released next week. How will it all end........!
We're very excited to be able to announce that our year 6 blog will go live on Friday 3rd April. A completely secure, manged and safe way to chat socially. All the information you need about how to use it can be found in the PDF document below. We can't wait to hear from you all.
Reading aloud to others - children to adults and adults to children - is an important part of our daily curriculum and building this into your home learning would be hugely beneficial.
You have your school reading books with you as well as additional ‘home’ books and these are a great starting point. If, however, you're looking for other ideas, the World Book Day website (https://www.worldbookday.com) has lots of fun ideas and creative and booky challenges that are well worth looking at. Additionally, the site also includes free audio-books (including full chapter books) that can be enjoyed by all the family. Try to read a variety of genres as well as non-fiction texts. Use the Year 6 genre challenge in the back of your reading records to help you.
For children in Years 5 and 6, there is a list of spellings that children are expected to know by the end of primary school. This is a mixture of high frequency words and words that children frequently misspell. A copy of the list appears below.
As a fun way of practising these spellings, crosswords or a word puzzle featuring some of the words will be published for children - and parents - to attempt! The answers to the puzzles will be posted in the following week and new puzzles will follow.
Let us know how you get on!
