Year 6 - w/b 29th June

Hi, Year 6! 
 
 
We hope you are well. As ever, try your best with the tasks this week.
 
If you have something you are particularly pleased with or proud of, please send us a photo of it - we love seeing what you've been doing and achieving! 
 
If you have a completed book or work folder of the things you've been doing in lockdown, please drop it off at the office - we would be delighted to see what you have been doing!
 
Thank you for joining in with our picnic and our podcast - we love hearing from you!
 
 
 
Daily Tasks:
  • Reading (at least 30 minutes). Make sure you are reading regularly. Have you changed your book recently? Have you tried a book from a different genre? Read a poem? Looked up some non-fiction?
  • Times Tables Rockstars -  if you need to learn multiplication tables
  • Use the year 6 weblinks to learn, play and revise different topics in a variety of subjects. 
  • Maths 5-a-day On Monday, start with June 29th and complete one every day for the rest of the week. The answers are on the site; ask an adult to mark it for you. Check you are still doing the right level for you. It shouldn't be too easy, nor too hard!


Remember year 6 standards - neat work, joined handwriting, careful and thoughtful presentation. 
We would rather you do a few things each day well than rush through all of them.

Year 6 Goodbye
 
Year 6,
Please send in photos or videos of your goodbyes to ESJ. We want to put them all together and share them in a video during the final week of term. If you can keep safe by socially distancing and following the appropriate guidance, and if you want to, you can do group pictures or videos. Please include your parents when you are organising this.
 
Information
  • The sharing video will be played to music so any sound on your video won't be heard.
  • Can we see who you are? In the videos and pictures, this needs to be the most important thing. 
  • Smiling, waving or doing a little dance are all good things to do. Some teachers have already sent in their videos.
  • Please make your videos 5 seconds at the longest and landscape. We need your smile and wave (a little dance if you want to) to last for around 3 seconds with a second either side to help with the editing. 
  • Please send photos and videos to Y6@elystjohns.cambs.sch.uk
  • Information about the time and date of the presentation will follow in a latter email.   
TO BE IN THE VIDEO YOU NEED TO HAVE A PERMISSION SLIP FILLED IN BY A PARENT AND IT NEEDS TO BE RETURNED TO SCHOOL BY WEDNESDAY 8TH JULY. WE CAN ONLY ADD VIDEOS AND PICTURES ONCE WE HAVE RECEIVED THESE SLIPS. THE PERMISSION SLIP WILL BE EMAILED TO ALL PARENTS.  
 
PLEASE SEND IN THE VIDEO OR PHOTO BY WEDNESDAY 8TH JULY TOO.
