Year 6 Learning at Home Page.
Learning at Home Page.
While the school is closed due to the coronavirus outbreak I would encourage you to do some form of academic activity each day - just to keep your skills up-to-date. You've all worked so hard this year in order to prepare for both the SATs and the transition to Secondary School: it would be a great shame now if you didn't keep practicing all the things you have learnt and keep them fresh in your memory. Hopefully we will be back to normal as quickly as possible (I don't want to miss a minute with this super class!) but in the meantime... work will be posted on this page for you to access at home. You can also access all the normal websites listed below to keep your brains in tip-top working order! If you want to email me any questions or for any reason at all you can on: firstname.lastname@example.org
This work has been set every week and will continue to be added to every Monday. Please email me if you are having any problems at: shansen.stbeesvillage.cumbria.sch.uk
Talk for Writing Booklet - click on the image below (Treasure) to access the booklet. I would suggest this should take two weeks to complete the booklet. This one is focussed on writing adventure stories and building suspense.

You can also visit famous attractions from the comfort of your own home by taking a virtual tour of them. Why not try some out and then post any interesting ones of the Class Dojo page so everyone can have a look. You could start with some of the ones below:
https://aqua.org/media/virtualtours/baltimore/index.html visit an aquarium.
https://www.houstonzoo.org/explore/webcams/ animals in the zoo.
https://www.louvre.fr/en/visites-en-ligne#tabs Visit the Louvre in Paris.
https://britishmuseum.withgoogle.com/ Explore British History
http://courtyard.museupicassobcn.org/ Remember Picasso's Weeping woman we looked at in class?
There will be many more - explore! Remember that Google street maps are also a fabulous way to see the world while we are stuck in our houses. Visit a new city, country, football ground... the world is a fabulous place!
Anyone who is a Harry Potter fan may like to visit: https://www.wizardingworld.com/collections/harry-potter-at-home which has been developed by J K Rowling for those of us stuck at home. Even if you only learn to draw a Niffler it's worth a look!
Don't forget the drawing tutorials we have done in class on You Tube: there's lots to keep you busy and develop your drawing skills.
In History our next topic is The Mayans. You could research this topic and produce a project of your choosing: a written booklet; a power point, a model; drawings and paintings... the list is endless. You will be able to find a range of resources on the internet to further your knowledge and give you ideas. Enjoy! Here are some sites to start you off:
If you don't fancy The Mayans; why not produce a project on anything at all? You could research something that interests you and do any of the above activities.
