Week Beginning 8th February 2021

Home Learning Monday 8th February 2021

Hello Year 6,

The last week before half term – we are nearly there! There are some special events happening this week so make sure that you read the information on our class webpage carefully – you don’t want to miss anything!

 

This week Holdbrook is marking Children’s Mental Health Week. The theme this year is ‘Express Yourself’ and to go with this idea, I will be including a link each day to a short film that describes all the different ways that you could do that. The first is about expressing yourself through art.

https://youtu.be/5V7SdoSLI1w

 

We are also introducing ‘Monday Munch’ which is an opportunity for you to learn about cooking and nutrition (part of our Design Technology curriculum) whilst you are at home. Each Monday, you will be given the name of a key ingredient. Use this ingredient to make a meal any time during the week. Take a photo of the meal and send it to me. The following Monday, I will share the meal photos during Zoom. This week’s key ingredient is bread and the document attached will give you further information.

Please find the rest of your learning tasks for today below.

Have a great day, stay safe,

Miss M

Screen Free Afternoon:

Rather than setting any online learning for you to complete this afternoon, I want you to get away from your screens and do something different! Below is a list of things that you might like to do. I don’t mind what you choose (as long as there is no screen involved!); the most important thing is that you have some fun!

  • Send some post – is there someone you could really cheer up were you to make a card/write a letter to them?
  • Go out for a walk with your family – spring is coming…can you spot some of the signs?
  • Make your own puzzle using a picture from a magazine or one you have drawn yourself
  • Learn a new skill – Can you tie your shoelaces? Can you juggle?
  • Junk modelling – what could those boxes become?
  • Be an artist – draw, paint, collage a picture
  • Great British Bake Off – get an adult’s permission and help and bake something delicious to share over the weekend
  • It’s Chinese New Year today – how about making some lanterns and planning a meal to celebrate?
  • Learn a poem by heart
  • Get the Lego out – just how many different creations can you make using only 10 small pieces? 20?
  • Play a board game
  • Plan a ‘Movie’ night – choose the film, advertise it, make tickets, plan the snacks and then sit back and enjoy!
  • Play the memory game – collect about 10 small objects, place them on a tray. Someone closes their eyes while you remove an object. Can they figure out which one you took?

I will also be going screen free this afternoon, so don’t expect me to comment or mark any work handed in after midday!
