Good morning,

 

Today is the last day of what would have been SATS week - so use your day wisely to be active and think about the questions that I have asked you over the course of the week.

 

Next week, we will be back to focusing on our core tasks (maths, reading, grammar and writing) and then the following week will be half term! 

 

Have a good weekend, see you on Monday. 

Update 14.05.2020

Good morning Year 6. 

Today, I would like you to look to the future...

1. What are you most looking forward to about moving to secondary school?

2. Do you have any concerns or worries about the transition?

If you do, you can speak to an adult at home or send me an email and I’ll try to help.

Remember it’s okay to have some worries...

When I was your age, I missed the transition day for my high school. Naturally, I was worried and concerned that I had missed lots of information and wouldn’t make new friends - I was wrong and I turned out to be just fine...didn’t I?!

 

Update 13.05.2020

Hello (again!)...I hope that you had a good day yesterday and were able to spend some time thinking about the questions I set but also that you found the time to be a little active!

Today, I have a few more questions for you:

1. What has been your greatest achievement?

2. How were you successful?

3. Who supported you with this achievement?

If you want to reply to any of these questions then you (with permission of your adult at home) can email me at Y6homeschoolwork@well-lane.wirral.sch.uk

Update 12.05.2020

Hi everyone, I hope that you found some time yesterday to be active and think about your happy memories.

Some questions for you for today:

1. Do you have a favourite school visit from your time at Well Lane?

2. What is your funniest memory?

3. What is your proudest moment?

Remember to stay active at home and you could find something creative to do too.

Finally, don’t forget to take some time to consider learning a new language!

 

Update 11.05.2020

Good morning Year 6, well today is a date which has been penciled in my diary all year - SATS Week...

Obviously, those SATS tests will not be taken by you this year and whilst to many of you this will be a huge relief, I also know that many of you were relishing the chance to show off your talents. 

There are three things that I wish for you to think about this week:

1. What has been your happiest memory at Well Lane?

2. Why is that your happiest memory?

3. Do you think you will still think fondly of that memory in 20, 30, 40 or 50 years time?

As a nation, we are currently experiencing an unprecedented situation but we are working collectively to overcome it and that includes all of you. Miss Fishwick and I are immensely proud of every single one of you and we know that had SATS Week gone ahead as planned then you would all have made 100% effort to do you best and we couldn't ask for anything else. 

This week, I would love it if you could spend as much of your time being active around your home and garden and from Wednesday even visiting the park with members of your household and playing some football, cricket, rounders etc.

I also thought that you might enjoy learning a new modern foreign language (I know that some of you already are!); if you would like to then follow this LINK 

Please keep safe and look after yourselves,

Mr Lambe 

 

Update 08.05.2020

Happy VE Day!
D
on’t forget to take part in the two minutes silence at 11am.

Have a safe and happy weekend Year 6. 

Keep smiling, 

Mr Lambe 

Update 07.05.2020

As tomorrow is the 75th anniversary of VE Day and a Bank Holiday, today is your last ‘working’ day of the week!

Try to complete the core tasks (White Rose Maths, SumDog Grammar, Pobble Writing and BBC Bitesize Reading - see Monday for the links).

Remember to try and decorate your windows in red, white and blue to celebrate VE Day. 

Most importantly, keep looking after yourselves mentally and physically. Use the Action for Happiness calendar at the top of the page and keep active around your home. If you have any concerns or worries then contact the school office and I’ll do my best to help you.

All the best,

Mr Lambe

Update 06.05.2020

Good morning, I hope that you were able to find out some facts about VE Day yesterday. If you’d like to find out more about the different key events during World War Two then visit the BBC Teach Website

Today, I would like you to visit this website Website Link and identify some of the activities that you would like to complete over the next couple of days. If you do not have access to a printer then you can use the images to help you sketch ideas instead.

Why not see what resources you have at home to possibly make a Union Jack or some red, white and blue bunting to decorate your windows.

I’d love to see any photos of your decorations so if you are able to ask an adult to take one and email to the school office and they will forward it to me.

Have fun and keep safe!


Update 05.05.2020

Good morning, I hope you found access to the core tasks easy enough yesterday. Keep up to good work with each of the core tasks.

Did you find out why yesterday wasn’t a Bank Holiday? 

That’s right... the Bank Holiday was moved to this a Friday (8th May) to allow people to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day; what is VE Day?

Today, I would like you to complete some research and find out what VE Day is and why we are celebrating this on Friday. 

Tomorrow and a Thursday, I will be asking you to get creative using anything that you can find (and are allowed to use) which is red, white and blue. 

Update 04.05.2020

Good morning Year 6. 

 

May the Fourth be with you... (Sorry, I couldn’t resist!)

Update 30.04.2020

Good morning Year 6.

Alongside today’s core activities (White Rose Maths, SumDog and concluding yesterday’s BBC Bitesize task)I would like you to research more into the Mayan Civilisation using your geographical and historical skills.

Can you create a chronological historical timeline about the Mayans?

Update 29.04.2020

Good morning!

 
I hope that you enjoyed the science activities yesterday - I know that KC did! You can see a photograph of his fantastic model further down this page. Well done!
 
Today, I would like you to take part in a reading lesson on BBC Bitesize (I’ve posted the link below). You will need to listen to the text and then there are 3 activities to complete - don’t worry if you don’t complete all 3 today as you can revisit the lesson tomorrow.
 
 
You will also see many other activities on BBC Bitesize which are aimed at Year 6 and Year 7 so have a browse and maybe try out some of them!
 
Good luck and stay safe,
 
Mr Lambe

Good morning!
Alongside your core learning tasks today, I would like you to complete some science work by following the link below. You will learn about the movement of the Earth, and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system.

Throughout this month in the night sky there is a very bright light - almost like a star but it isn’t... what do you think it is?

 

Update 27.04.2020

Good morning Year 6, I hope that you’ve had a positive and safe weekend. 

Your core learning tasks for this week are as follows:

White Rose Maths - Summer Term (Week 2)

SPAG.com / SumDog - Spelling and Grammar 

KS2 SATS Comprehension 

Remember to have a look at taking part in the SumDog Wirral competition too...

Finally, keep going on TTRS and remember to read at home every day!

 

Update 24.04.2020

Good morning, as it is Friday today I won’t introduce anything new but I would like you to conclude the work set for you throughout the week. 

A quick reminder that you must be reading at home on a daily basis either to yourself, a sibling, parent or carer. 

Over the weekend remember to keep active at home but most importantly stay safe!

Have a good weekend, see you on Monday.

 

Update 23.04.2020

Fantastic to see lots more activity on SumDog yesterday and some new users logging in. Keep it up!

There is a Wirral competition between schools which starts tomorrow and ends next Thursday so let’s get online and represent Well Lane.

Also, today is St. George’s Day but who was St. George, where did he come from and why is he our patron saint?

 

Update 22.04.2020

Today is Earth Day but what does that mean and how do our decisions affect our planet?

Research Earth Day and make a poster or a Power Point (if you're able to) and share your findings with your family. 

 

Update 21.04.2020

Good morning Year 6, I would like to introduce you to a fantastic new resources from White Rose Maths - so if you're missing our daily problem solving or reasoning tasks with Alex, Mo, Dani and Dora then follow this link...

White Rose Maths

 

 Begin with Summer Term - Week 1 before moving onto Week 2 next week; if you have time then go back and re-visit the learning from the final two weeks of the spring term.

 

Please do not feel that you have to print the answer sheets to complete the tasks - it is absolutely fine to write your answers down on paper or in your homework books. 

 

Update 20.04.2020

Well, welcome back Year 6 and welcome to the summer term... Not exactly how we thought and hoped that it would arrive!

We hope that you are all okay and that you had a lovely Easter!

We are really missing seeing you all, but we are so happy that we have our online learning activities to help us keep teaching you. No matter how the rest of Year 6 pans out, we have loved teaching you and we are so proud of you! We know it can be tricky to do work at home but we know that you will be trying hard and doing what your adults are asking you to do, you have to imagine they are your teachers in school and do some good listening and good work!

Keep up the hard work, you might not be able to see us, but we are here to help you with your work or anything else you might need help with. If you do need any additional support then please ask your parent or carer to email the school office and we will get back to you.

We are thinking about you and all the good times we have had in Year 6, which keeps a smile on our faces. Keep smiling!

Mr Lambe and Miss Fishwick

 

Remember that whilst we are providing enough work to keep you educated and busy during the school closure period, it is definitely more important to look after your own health (including your mental health) so if you need a break from work then speak to an adult at home.

Remember to keep active in your home or garden.

Don't forget you can also keep up (if you can!!!) with Joe Wicks on YouTube at 9am Monday- Friday or catch up later in the day.

 

Please note that in order to help the page to upload faster on mobile devices, any content posted during the first few weeks of school closure has been archived. All online links are still available but if you need anything else please contact the school office via email and I will be more than happy to help.

Crucial Crew Visit
 
Crucial Crew is a multi-agency safety event aimed at Year 6 children designed to provide children with life skills that will enable them to keep themselves and others safe. It is generally accepted that children start to become more independent at this age and are often expected to cope increasingly on their own and deal with changes in their lives, such as a move to Secondary school.  The aim of our Crucial Crew event is to raise each participant's awareness of threats and dangers, in a fun and interactive way.
 
Chester Zoo Visit
 
On Tuesday 14th January, we visited Chester Zoo. Everybody had a great day and we got see nearly all of the animals that we hoped to see. We also learnt more about Palm Oil through a specialist workshop in the Realm of the Red Ape enclosure. 
Design Technology
 
We planned, prepared and cooked a three course meal consisting of: stuffed peppers for starters, baked salmon for our main courses and a pineapple dessert. Everybody had fun and the food was amazing! 
Forensic Science Workshop
 
On Tuesday 3rd December we took part in a 'Whodunnit?' workshop - the pupils learnt crime solving techniques such as: finger printing, tyre / footwear casting and investigating fibres from clothes and hair. But could Year 6 forensically prove who the culprit was... of course we could!

Circle Time
 

Circle Time is a popular activity in Year 6 that is used to help develop positive relationships between children. It aims to give them tools to engage with and listen to each other.

 

The circle encourages unity, respect, turn-taking and working together towards a shared vision.

 

It also helps children work on five key skills, without which Circle Time doesn’t work: thinking, listening, looking, speaking and concentrating
