Year 6 - Montreal Class

Welcome to Montreal Class

Year 6 Home Learning Summer 2020

Hello Montreal class!

 

I hope you and your family are keeping safe and well. The teachers at Jubilee have been working hard to ensure that you can continue learning at home during this challenging and unprecedented time. Please check our class page regularly as I will be uploading activities that you will be able to complete at home. The activities will not only help you to continue your learning, but also let you fill your days with some fun and engaging projects.

 

You have shown so much resilience this year in order to achieve your personal targets. Having witnessed your tremendous attitude in the classroom, I'm hoping that your loved ones are impressed with your dedication and patience during this peculiar situation. Please continue to treasure this special time with your family whilst ensuring that you remain focused as you have done this year.

 

Remain empathetic and tolerant of others who may feel stressed, and above all, show the very best version of yourself.

 

Stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives!

 

I hope to see you all soon to show our appreciation for those who are on the frontline,

 

Mr Llewelyn

You could have your work featured on our class page or gallery! If you would like to send us pictures of your wonderful projects, or have any questions, please contact us on year5and6jubileeteachers@gmail.com

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"The beautiful journey of today can only begin when we learn to let go of yesterday.” by Steve Mariboli who works as a life-changing speaker.

 

As you have two weeks left at Jubilee, it is fitting that you begin to think about the wonderful and treasured memories that you will hold on to for the rest of your lives; I still recall lots of different events from my time at primary school too!

 

The transition between year groups, schools and teachers can become emotional and sometimes overwhelming. But, you all have the strength to overcome change and establish yourself as a dedicated student ready for the next stage of your life.

 

Over the next few weeks, we will continue to plan more activities around how to deal future changes in order for you to feel comfortable and excited before you start your chosen secondary school in September.

 

Enjoy,

 

Mr Llewelyn

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” by Anne Frank, who inspirationally survived the Holocaust.

 

Everyone should welcome change as this leads to progress and opinion. It has been vital this week during our first full week back as a ‘bubble’. Our classmates have been enjoying themselves in the hot, sunny weather here at Jubilee whilst beginning to increase our workload back up to full capacity.

 

Further changes are forthcoming and will soon allow us more freedom within our community. I hope you continue to enjoy the activities that Mr Kolseth and I set as they reflect those completed in our classroom: you may not be here physically, but are definitely in thoughts and in memory.

 

Stay safe,

 

Mr Llewelyn

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye!” by H. Jackson Brown Jnr. (inspirational American book author).

 

As each week passes by and the lockdown continues to be eased, we are seeing changes physically through our eyes but more importantly, we understand the meaning behind everything with our hearts.

 

This quote can also be said about our reopening: we are seeing more pupils return and understand the changes and measures with our hearts.

 

I hope you all continue to remain safe,

 

Mr Llewelyn

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"Coming together is the beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success!” by Henry Ford (founder of the Ford Motor Company).

 

This sentence can be directly linked to our class. We begin the academic year together, journey together throughout to make progress and learn together in order to succeed! This may have briefly stopped but this week we reopen the doors and enjoy the same process: beginning, staying and working together.

 

It will be terrific to see as many familiar faces as possible and enjoy retelling lockdown memories/stories in person. Having the time to share and enjoy company we have truly missed.

 

Stay safe and see you soon,

 

Mr Llewelyn

Home Learning w/c 8.6.20

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." By Benjamin Franklin (he is most famous for helping draft the Declaration of Independence for the United States of America and his work investigating electricity).

 

Firstly, this thoughtful quote highlights the importance that teachers have on young minds. It also explains why we, especially in primary schools, spend so much time building and constructing your own thoughts in order for you to learn.

 

I first came across this quote at the beginning of my teaching career: it was used to inspire and provide positivity. It truly reflects our human nature as we often have to repeat things, listen to someone to try and remember information, but also how including one another will create the strongest bond of all - which is togetherness!

 

With this in mind, I am thoroughly looking forward to seeing as many of my Montreal class next week as the school begins to allow our Year 6 pupils to return to their friends, learning and community.

 

Stay safe and see you soon,

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” by A. A. Milne (from the author who wrote Winnie the Pooh).

 

This quote reflects the attitude of our key workers who are continuing to work tirelessly on the frontline. They epitomise the words 'brave, strong and smart' when dealing with the effects of our challenging situation. It also shows how characteristics can be hidden until they are truly needed: we continue to applaud your efforts!

 

I hope you have enjoyed a restful week, especially with the sun shining in all of its glory. I look forward to seeing you soon,

Optional Half-term Home Learning w/c 25.5.20

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest of men.” by Roald Dahl.

 

With this week being half-term, I would like you all to relax, rest and reflect after a strange series of events. One of our favourite children’s authors further highlights to us that we should embrace the warm weather and celebrate with family.

 

Throughout this week, we have tried to raise awareness around mental health and wellbeing. Therefore, the activity packs for you to complete below are optional, as we would like you to reward your hard work with time off. Our dedicated and terrific staff here at Jubilee will also try to reenergise.

 

Please stay alert, protect yourselves and family before we hopefully see each other again soon,

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"Golf is a good walk spoiled!"

by Mark Twain (an American author whose real name is Samuel Langhorne Clemens).

 

You all know that one of my favourite pastimes or sports is golf, due to the physical skill and mental side when playing each shot. However, with the lock-down restrictions easing, I was able to play a round with my brother (obviously keeping our distance). Words cannot explain the joy at not only playing golf, but seeing my brother...

 

This famous quote may soon be forgotten, as everyone will appreciate any form of exercise whilst being in our beautiful countryside. With this week being dedicated to mental health, being able to play has eased my anxieties and worries.

 

Please make sure that you do something this week which is positive and enjoyable for you!

 

Keep safe, alert and we'll see each other again soon,

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"I've never claimed to be a great singer but I've always given my best, and I've loved what I've done and had a very good life!"

by Dome Vera Lynn (a London born singer known for her wartime songs to uplift the nation).

 

This quote resonated with me after reading it over several times: it does reflect many of our Jubilee Keys, but it also highlights the humility one might have after contributing so much to a community...and ultimately a nation.

 

Her infamous lyrics from the song, "We'll meet again," have been echoing around my flat for the past few days after the emotional and memorable VE Day celebrations. This truly remarkable woman sung to a nation struggling to remain positive during bleak times. We find ourselves battling against an invisible enemy whilst saying these words to loved ones and friends.

 

Having watched so many wonderful acts of kindness on television, and with the words 'We'll meet again' on everybody's lips, I'd like you to consider what you are doing to to unite your family or those around you in your community.

 

Stay safe and hopefully we'll see each other again soon,

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain!"

by Dolly Parton (an American country singer).

 

Rainbows are currently the symbol of those who we acknowledge as heroes and those who go above and beyond the call of duty: there seems to be an endless list of people who are placing themselves at the forefront of this war - we salute and appreciate your fine efforts!

 

It occurred to me that rainbows also appear after a storm. 'The storm', currently controlling our way of life and causing questions in how we may return, is that of the coronavirus. We are past the peak, according to the Government, and we wait until the rain stops to allow the sun to shine again on our lives.

 

I reiterate last week's message - to be patient. The rainbow will show itself soon. So, stay...safe...strong...and positive!

 

Mr Llewelyn

Maths: Below is the first of two interactive maths lessons. Both lessons are of a skill we worked so hard on in school and we were all so confident in. I thought it would be a good idea to recap the skill: adding and subtracting fractions. The first link is for adding fractions; remember the steps and the process we need to go through in order to achieve the skill.

 

Wednesday - Maths and Foundation Subject

Maths: Here is the second link, subtracting fractions. Remember to follow the same process for subtracting fractions that you used for adding fractions, just make sure you're taking away not adding as the final step.

Mr Llewelyn's weekly reflection:

 

"Attitude is a little thing that can make a big difference!"

by Winston Churchill (former British Prime Minister).

 

I read this quote last night and felt that it sheds some light into how we must keep adapting our lifestyles in order to bounce back, especially entering our fifth week of lock-down. Waking up each morning with positive mental thoughts can change the day for everyone in our family: we all love a routine but someone must have the drive and motivation to begin. Are you the motivator in your household?

 

Please remind yourselves to be patient during this time: whether it's with yourself (frustration at not completing something or not being allowed out) or even with family members. However, it is how we act and respond during this time that will be remembered! So, stay...safe...strong....and positive!

Sasha has sent in her possible holiday recommendations for this summer because of our cancelled Easter holidays. Both herself and Lewis have already typed up their animal descriptions of a hedgehog and an Arctic fox, utilising expanded noun phrases, relatives clauses and a semi-colon to link relevant independent clauses.

Feel free to look over the children's homework menu to see what different opportunities they have to further their learning and embed knowledge learnt at school. Homework is expected to be handed in by Friday, every week. We would like the children to select either a Maths or English homework alongside another subject each week. Therefore, two pieces of homework should be completed.

Autumn Term Topic 'World at War'

It has been a terrific few days and the children are beginning to settle into their expected routines. Here are a few examples of sketches to highlight the class' levels of expectation so far...

We have focused heavily on mental health and personal well-being in English lately. The children have responded empathetically and reflectively in regards to how some characters hide and isolate themselves away from family and friends. Therefore, our pupils have created ways in which we can advertise, and apply different skills from English lessons, to persuade characters to address their negative thoughts and ‘break the chain’!

Spring Term Topic 'Running Wild'

To broaden the children’s awareness in science to how animals adapt and potential reasons for endangered animals’ numbers dwindling, the children were enthralled with a visit from Eagle Heights (which is a wildlife foundation located near Dartford).

Within our recent English lessons, the children have learnt, retold and transformed the original story of 'A Lion in Paris' (which is written by Beatrice Alemagna) into their own. It is based on a lonely and curious creature who gets bored at home on his grasslands. This book was chosen by the children due to its cross-curricular links and transferable language from a plethora of subjects.

 

Please read the wonderful stories written by a selection of pupils. Unfortunately, we could not display all but they will be available for parents to view during Parents' Evening and within their Writing Portfolios for secondary school.

Spring Term 2 - Running Wild

Our PE lessons have been based on Outdoor Adventurous Activities this half-term. OAA has a strong focus on team work, resilience and enhancing leadership qualities. We asked the children to evaluate their own leadership qualities by running unstructured games for their peers. They assessed their communication skills, tolerance and overall leadership ability.

During 'British Science Week', we challenged the children to show and apply their knowledge of adaptation to see how animals evolve. The children recognised that most creatures adapt based on their colour, pattern, shape or habitat. It was difficult to find all the children's butterflies as they had camouflaged them to blend in with our classroom. Aren't they creative?

To ensure that our children can appreciate how science cannot only be based on knowledge but also fun, we invited a scientist to provide our pupils with imaginative experiments that they can complete at home, within a safe and controlled environment. You can witness for yourself the reaction it had on our students...
