Hi year 6.

Well we are at the end of another week of learning from home. Hopefully you have all been working hard and you’ve managed to have some time outside in the lovely weather. Next week is half term so on Monday I will post a few activities which you can choose from or you can catch up on work which you haven’t yet completed. I will also be setting tasks on active learn for you to complete if you wish. Hopefully we will be back at school soon and I will be able to see the fantastic work which you have been doing.

Boys, we lost again! ☹

Girls well done for the win! Lets keep this up for the next battle.

 

English

I want you to check out Radioblogging.net today. At 9.30am Anthony Horowitz, is on the show live. You can catch up later though. As you listen to the show, there will be a range of activities which I would like you to complete.

Maths

Today I would like you to complete as many as you can from the White Rose Maths challenge. Questions 1-6 are suitable for year 6 and the others are a little more challenging. You could make this a competition within your household or you could work together on it as a family. Can you solve them all? Remember, bar model can help you visualise the question.

Here are the answers for you to check. Please don’t use them to cheat as you are only cheating yourself!

 

Please also take your photos and send them to me. I didn’t have any yesterday ☹ These are for your leavers video and it would be great to make sure we have a picture of each of you.  You can email it to j.ledbury@brookfields.bham.sch.uk

 

Take care and stay safe.

Miss Ledbury, Miss O’Rourke and Ms Ford xxx

Teatime Talk - 22.05.20

 

Every day I will be posting a 'teatime talk' question for you all to discuss at home with your family. These questions are thunks.

 

There are NO right or wrong answers to these questions – simply YOUR answers.


You do, however, need to think about your answers and be able to justify them – in other words, don’t say the first thing that comes into your head, AND, be prepared to fully explain your answers when you give them.

Listen to the answers given by others and treat them seriously – even if they sound odd, they may all be valid if they can be justified.

Hi everyone.

 

Hope you are all well. We have been really lucky again with some sunny days, I hope you are keeping safe and putting on sun cream if you go out.

 

TT Rockstars

Well done Girls, we are still in the lead and we have 15 of you logging on and having a go! Well done all of you, that is demonstrating good team effort! 😊

Boys, where are you all? We have 6 of you playing and one person has gone over 10,000 points so any more will not count ☹. We really need you to play as part of the team. It would be great to see more of you logging on. If we had more of you playing, we may be in with a chance of winning.

 

Art

How do you fancy being a record breaker? Today at 4pm you can join World Book Day author and illustrator, Rob Biddulph and learn to draw. At the same time, you will be a part of an attempt to break the Guinness World Records title for largest online art lesson ever and raise money to fight COVID-19!

What makes a good computer game?

Follow the above link to the daily bitesize lesson on what makes a good computer game. Watch the videos and then complete the activities.

 

As we won’t be back to ‘normal’ by the end of this academic year, I want to put together a leavers video so we will have something to round off your final year at Brookfields. For this to happen, I need more pictures of you, please email me your pictures to j.ledbury@brookfields.bham.sch.uk. Make sure they are appropriate and you have parental permission to share them. Thank you to all of those who have sent them in so far, it’s lovely to see you after all these weeks!

 

Take care, keep safe and remember to keep washing those hands.

Missing you all.

Miss Ledbury, Miss O’Rourke and Ms Ford xxx

Hi everyone.

 

Thank you to those who have e-mailed me your pictures, they are lovely and I am enjoying the messages being sent with them, please keep sending me pictures as these will go towards your leavers video. You can email me using j.ledbury@brookfields.bham.sch.uk

 

This week is Mental Health Awareness week.

This years theme is kindness.

Kindness Matters - Mental Health Foundation - Mental Health Awareness Week 2020

Did you know that kindness can be beneficial for our mental health? Find out more about Mental Health Awareness Week here: mentalhealth.org.uk/mhaw

Think about all the random acts of kindness you have already done during this lockdown period. Are there anymore that you could do? Could you do at least one a day for the rest of this week? It could be sending a nice message to a friend or family member, or you could draw a nice picture for someone in your family or it could be doing something for yourself like reading or singing or dancing – something that makes you happy.

 

TT Rockstar

Well done to Hlya, who is still in the lead for the girls. We also have a lot more girls joining in today, so well done. We are still in the lead – keep it up!

As for the boys, I am happy to see more of you joining in – we could still do with more playing though. Well done to Marouane who is in the lead but we are still loosing ☹

 

English

Continue with Doors – the world of possibility. Today I would like you to complete tasks 7 and 8.

 

Keep up the hard work, take of yourself, remember those acts of kindness and I look forward to receiving your photos and videos, as well as speaking to some of you this week.

Hey lovelies,

 

Hope you are all well and had a relaxing weekend. As you can see by the picture at the top of the page, we are all still really missing you. We will be calling you all again this week to check on how you are doing and answer any questions which you may have.

Normally at this time of year we would be beginning to plan our leavers play and end of term activities but unfortunately not this year ☹ This does make me really sad but I still want to put together a video for the end of year to celebrate your time at Brookfields, to do this, I need your help! I need you to send me a photo of yourself completing your home learning or a Tik Tok video. You can then email it to me at j.ledbury@brookfields.bham.sch.uk Remember to get an adults permission before sending it to me. I will then collate these, along with photos from school, to make our leavers video.

 

TT Rockstar

Well done to Keyaan and Marouane, you are the only 2 boys who have logged on and played against year 5! They can’t do it on their own. We need more boys to be logging on and playing to at least be in with a chance of winning against year 5 boys!

Well done to Hlya, who is currently in the lead for the girls. Girls are winning but only just, we need to have more of you playing to make sure that we win against year 5 girls.
