Well done Year 6 for all of your efforts during home learning.

Follow the link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7pj7nb to the lesson and each day complete one of the activities. Activity 2 and 3 should be completed on a word document accessed though bfgl and then this can be shared with your class teacher through e-mail. 6L@brookfields.bham.sch.uk or 6N@brookfields.bham.sch.uk

When can you get help?
Miss Ledbury, Miss Nasar and Miss O’Rourke will be around to help you at the times below. When they are offline, they are preparing your online work for tomorrow!
Mrs Downs and Mr Francis will be around to help at other times.
Hi Year 6.
As you will be aware, the government have announced that we will be learning from home until end of February which we will start on Wednesday 5th January.
Please login to TEAMS for 8.30 am. This is where we will do the register and go through the work for the day. Once we have finished on teams, you will have the rest of the day to complete the tasks. Not all your time will be on a screen, you will need to remember to take rest breaks away from it and you will be expected to read every day - this must be recorded in your reading record or your book if you have misplaced you reading record.
Parents can collect CGP books and an exercise book from school for you to complete alongside the online learning.
Homework will be set on the BGFL platform and you can use the message function on there to talk to your teachers throughout the school day if you need further help.
The expectation is for you to be completing all work set and saving it so than we can provide you with feedback.
Speak to you soon.

All our work for today will be set out on BGFL. I would like you to all start your morning by looking at the feedback that has been left on your work. Quite a few of you did not manage to complete all the maths reasoning questions yesterday as you did not hit the next slide - please do this today.

Thursday 22nd October 2020
Hello Children! Well done on a great day of learning yesterday!
Today all your learning will appear on our learning platform BGFL. All your tasks have been assigned as homework. I will be online, as will Miss Ledbury, to support you with your learning and revisit and give feedback on yesterday's learning.
Our schedule for today is as follows:
9 am Register (log onto our group chat and let us know you are there - we will be checking)
9am - 9.15am Handwriting using our login on the app 'letter join'
9.15am - 9.30am SPaG task
9.30am - 10.15am Maths work
10.15am - 10.45am Breaktime/spending time with your family
10.45am - 11.15am Guided Understanding
11.15am - 12.15pm English Recall (studyzone)/Completion of Writing (I will then aim to discuss and give verbal feedback to everyone linked with their writing)
12.15pm - 12.30pm D.E.A.R 'Drop Everything And Read'
1.30pm Back into the group chat for the pm register and to let us know you are back.
1.35pm - 1.45pm Holes has been assigned to homework as a sound file. Open the link and see if you can hear.
1.45pm - 2.15pm RE - We have been learning all about commitment. Go through the questions shared with you in the homework section and discuss these with an adult at home. Share some of the ways you are committed to different things in the group chat, if you feel comfortable to share.
2.15pm - 3pm PE - Now I know you are at home but it is important that we get to move about. For this session you will need some socks!
Watch the linked video and see if you can make the circle somewhere safely in your house. Can you get around in 20 seconds? Do this a few times. Then using the timer again, roll the socks into a ball and see how many times in 20 seconds you can throw the sock ball up from one hand and then catch it in the other. This will need great co-ordination skills. Then using the socks again along with the timer, I want you to pass the socks around your waist so they circulate your body by your tummy. How many times can you pass it around in 20 seconds without dropping them? If you can think of a further activity using the socks, share it in the group chat.
3pm - 3.30pm Reading. I have shared a link with you on the home learning platform where you can read this weeks copy of the first news.
3.30pm Finish for the day.
If your times vary do not worry! Do however aim to complete all your work.

Hello to my lovely group! I am so sorry I can't be with you all today, but I will see you all very soon and hopefully talk to you over the next couple of days.

Anything you are unsure of, I will aim to help you with on our BGFL learning platform.

These questions can be answered in full sentences on the BGFL platform using J2e5.
Here you can type up your answers and then press save (the 3rd red button along from the left). Save the file as Guided Understanding 21.10.20.
We have been working on our report of 'The Great White Shark' in our English books.
I would like you to begin writing this at home considering the structure and language we have encountered. I would like you to complete your introduction, description and location paragraph. I am looking forward to reading them!
I will expect to see these when we return to school!
Reminder: there are some useful videos on our class page to support you with ideas.
Additionally, I would like you to log on to studyzone for your recall. Spend some time recapping on the different tenses and word classes.
Keep up the amazing effort in your writing - I am so proud of you all!
Click on the power point and and see if you can recall the months of the year and days of the week.
Use the power point and click on the links to watch the videos and access the webpages. Here you will learn all about different invention during the Victorian era. Choose one of the inventions to then create an advertising campaign for it. Create a persuasive poster explaining all about your invention highlighting how it will change the users life. Then you will need to create a short speech selling the idea to the investors.
Both of these can be created and submitted using J2e5 on our learning platform. You can record your speech and save it on J2e5. We will then look at these and provide you with feedback.
