Year 6. Autumn 2021

Hello! It’s me again!

I think we must be breaking records and we have been together for so long that I am beginning to think I might be following you to high school next year! I am really excited for everything to hopefully get back to something approaching normality, (whatever that is!) this year. I know what amazing things you are all capable of and because of that, we can get straight into all the learning and fascinating things that Year 6 has in store for us.

Just a few notes to make everyone aware of when things will be happening:

PE will be every Monday and Friday afternoon, so the children need their kits in school on these days. Just a reminder that school P.E. kit comprises of a white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers or pumps and if P.E. is taking place outside and the weather is cold, the children are allowed to wear dark jogging bottoms and trainers. All jewellery must be removed for P.E. If the children cannot remove the jewellery themselves, it is best if they do not wear it on the PE days.

Homework will still be sent out each Friday and must be returned by the following Wednesday at the latest and reading books should be taken home and signed by an adult at least twice a week.

Handwriting and Presentation:

During this first half term, we are going to really focus on our handwriting skills and development and the presentation of the work in our books. We will be following our school handwriting scheme with the children and will be expecting them to use this and be as neat as possible in all aspects of their work. We will also be sending examples of the scheme home so that parents are able to support the children with their presentation when they are completing their homework as well, where we will also continue to expect equally high standards.

 

Topic: The first topic we are covering this year is North America. We will be looking at lots of Geographical skills during this topic and will be finding out lots about all the different countries and diverse cultures within this fascinating continent. Part of the weekly homework in Year 6 will again be to complete some topic based activities and the homework menu will again be used to choose activities from.

 

English: This term we will be looking at a range of writing styles. We will be looking in detail at the King Kong book by Anthony Browne and will be creating stories and newspaper reports around this.

We will also be looking at a video called ‘The Eye of the Storm’ and will be completing our own narratives based around this.

In SPaG lessons we will be revising all areas of punctuation and continuing to work on all the aspects of grammar to make your written work better. Remember the children have weekly spellings to learn, using Spelling Shed.

Maths: In our maths lessons we will be covering the Year 6 objectives from the maths Curriculum. You will be continuing to work hard to achieve your targets in a variety of aspects of maths, trying to become more fluent and developing your reasoning and problem solving skills. We will be focussing on the using and applying aspect of maths through problem solving, reasoning, explaining and investigating. You will also be continuing to learn all your times tables so that you know all the multiplication and division facts to 12 x 12 as quickly as possible as this is so valuable when working in many areas of maths.

Science:
Our Bodies: In this unit children will learn how to identify and explain the different systems which are constantly at work within the human body. We will look in detail at some of these systems including the circulatory system and we will look at how the heart works to circulate our blood around the body.

Changing Circuits: In this unit, the children will learn how to create and develop increasingly difficult and complex circuits, building on the work they did in year 3.

 

Computing– We will continue our work on coding, using the Scratch 3 program. We will also continue on creating and editing videos. Computing will also be used in a cross-curricular manner too in a variety of other curriculum areas to enhance learning. We will be using  Book Creator, Powerpoint, imovie and Keynote to present our work in other subjects in different ways.

Homework-
The children will continue to get English and maths homework every week. We will always set the homework on a Friday and it must be brought back into school by the following Wednesday. This will be set on Google Classroom every week or paper copies can be made available. The children will also be bringing home their reading books every day and it is vitally important that they read every day. We are really working on the children’s comprehension skills so it would be great if you could ask them questions about their books every time you read with them.

We keep track of the homework and reading on charts in the classroom that are linked to the assertive mentoring scheme that we use in school. In order to achieve a green mark their homework MUST be completed and handed in on WEDNESDAY.

We are looking forward to sharing all these exciting learning opportunities with you.  Don’t forget to keep in contact using Blogs!

If there is anything you need, or any help I can give you with anything, please let me know by either catching me in the morning or after school, or giving me a ring.

Mr. Griffin

P.E. and Sports Premium

In March 2013, the Government announced a new package of funding for P.E. and school sport. Through the ‘Sport Premium’, they are continuing the provision.

The allocation for our school is £18,970 for this academic year (2020-2021).

The money will be spent in such a way as to encourage children who are reluctant when it comes to PE as well as enriching the learning opportunities and developing the skills of those children who enjoy and excel in P.E.

The provision of the Sports Premium funding is there to give schools the financial support to put schemes in place which will have a lasting and sustainable impact on the PE provision in school and the health and fitness of all the children beyond the time when the funding is no longer available.

With this in mind, all of the funding which we receive goes towards providing the children with opportunities to develop a love and a passion for health, sport and fitness which will change their mind-set to want to take part in activities both within and without the school environment. All of the sports premium funding we receive goes towards providing additional opportunities for the children that would otherwise not be available through traditional funding streams.

We use this funding to improve the skills of teachers in the teaching of PE, particularly through working with specialist coaches from the Kickstart organisation, with whom we are in partnership, to upskill our teachers in the provision of all aspects of P.E., thus giving sustainability for the future.

We are also using the money to top up resources in school to enable teachers to provide an outstanding skills – based approach to P.E. teaching.

We have used approximately 5% of the money to go into partnership with the Tameside School Sports Partnership. This will provide us with specific teacher training across all areas of P.E., membership to the Youth Sports Trust, Leadership training for pupils, Change4Life Health initiatives, online fitness tools, Literacy and Numeracy sport and P.E. projects, access to further funding support, Delivery of inter school competitions and a range of other services.

Further spending is used to provide lunchtime activities for all children in KS1 and 2, again provided by the Kickstart programme, and for the provision of equipment to provide all children, both those with an interest in PE and those who are more reluctant to join in, with the opportunity to be active and to take part in a variety of sports activities.

We also spend a large chunk of the funding on the running of our- in my opinion, unrivalled- Sports and Health Week, where we provide the children with a huge amount of sports and health related experiences and opportunities, along with providing pathways into the continuation of these sports and experiences outside of school through our links with coaches and clubs. Unfortunately, this was cancelled last year, due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We used the extra money available to us this year to provide a wellbeing mentoring support worker who is linked to the Kickstart initiative, who will provide mental health and well-being sessions for identified children throughout this year, to support children with the re-integration into school after the lockdown. We have also used some of the left over funding to provide sports-specific equipment to be able to provide the children with additional opportunities to try new sports in school during this time when we are unable to compete in different sports against other schools. We are very much hoping that we will be able to run our Sports Week this year, in the week beginning June 14th 2021 and we are already planning for this.

Further funding is made available to provide all the children in school who require additional support to achieve their National Curriculum swimming awards. We currently provide all children with blocks of swimming lessons during Year 4. For any children who are not water confident and cannot swim competently, using a range of strokes and perform self rescue in different water based activities, we provide additional catch up sessions, paid for from the sports premium funding during year 5 or 6. As a result of the lockdown caused by the pandemic, many of our Year 4 children were unable to gain the required awards during the last academic year, so additional catch up sessions will be needed for more children over the next two years.

For a more detailed breakdown of the spending, please see the attached impact statements at the bottom of this document.

To keep up to date with new initiatives and exciting times to come in school sport and P.E. at Corrie, make sure you keep checking the P.E. section of our web-site.

Health Initiatives

We have also invested time and money into looking at initiatives which can have a wider implication to the health and well-being of our children in a variety of ways.

  • We have appointed two Health Ambassadors who work alongside the Sports Ambassadors to look at how we can further develop health initiatives in school on an on-going basis.
  • We have incorporated health focussed sessions into our National School Sports Week. The children all take part in a healthy eating and cooking session with the school cook where they make smoothies and healthy pasta dishes.
  • We also ran a Junior Whistlers session in year 5 for a six week period whereby the children were taught how to officiate games and respect officials.
  • The Year 4, 5 and 6 children also took part in defibrillator training and basic CPR techniques as we have now purchased a defibrillator for school.

 

Healthy Eating / Healthy Lunchbox Assembly

Mr. Griffin and the Sports and Health Ambassadors have led a healthy eating and healthy lunchbox assembly to try to show everybody what the best choices are for healthy and balanced lunches.

We are also going to implement a new rewards scheme designed to encourage healthy eating. This will be run alongside a rewards scheme called ‘Smile for a Mile’ to encourage the children in each class to be more active by running or walking a mile each day / week.

 

Impact of PE Premium Spending

The money that we have spent in school since the funding began has had a huge impact already on the provision of school sport for our children. I have included below detailed breakdowns of the impact of the spending as well as an evidence sheet to show how there was an increased impact from the first year of the funding to the second year.

We all hope that you have had a fantastic summer break.

 

IMPORTANT NOTES:

PE lessons will be every Thursday afternoon and every other Friday afternoon. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school every Thursday and Friday. They should bring their PE kit in a bag and as soon as they are changed out of their kit at the end of the session, the kit will go back into the bag and can then be taken home to be washed if you wish to do so.

Homework will be sent home every Friday and is expected to be returned to school by the following Wednesday.

HOME LEARNING LINKS / IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER 

Every half term the children will receive ‘Take Away Homework’ a menu of homework activities linked to our Topic. If you would like to email us your child’s homework please email to admin@corrie.tameside.sch FAO Mr. Griffin

The children will also be sent a piece of maths or literacy work.

Home Reading: Reading a school book is part of your homework. Reading books are changed or checked every Wednesday but will be changed on other days if a book has been completed. Your child’s reading diary must be signed before a new book is given and all activities completed (if applicable)

REMEMBER: all homework needs to be completed each week and handed in by each Wednesday to achieve GREEN for Homework in your Assertive Mentoring. If you hand it in on Thursday you will achieve YELLOW and after that you will achieve RED for that week.

You all have an ACTIVE LEARN and Times Tables Rockstars  login for other Maths activities, games and multiplication facts practise to enjoy at home online. Please ask an adult to see your teacher for a replacement card if you lose or forget your login. Web links:

Other important information:

  • Please ensure your name is clearly written in all your school uniform. We have a permanent marker if you need to write your child’s name in their jumper etc.
  • Please ensure your correct and full PE kit is in school all week as PE days can change in school (it will be sent home every half term to wash, unless you would like to take it more regularly, particularly under the current conditions)
  • Bring your reading book and reading diary to school every day. Sometimes a reading volunteer will choose you for extra reading.
  • Please bring a school water bottle every day. Take it home each day and ask your grown up to clean and refill for you.
  • All the equipment you need is supplied for you in school. Please do not bring in your own pencils, rubbers etc from home.

Hi All,

Hope you are still keeping safe and well. From Monday (18th May), there will be new home learning packs available to collect from school. I know Mrs. Cartledge has been keeping you all up to date with the latest advice from the government, but in the meantime, and until anything changes, I will keep providing you with lots to be getting on with at home. There is a lot to cover in the packs, so don’t be worried if some of the tasks run over into another day.

It was lovely to speak to so many of you on the phone and I will be ringing again in a few weeks to have a chat and see how everyone is doing. Remember when I call, it will be from a withheld or private number but I promise I won’t try to sell you PPI or ask if you have had an accident that wasn’t your fault during the last five years!!

Again, if you would rather have the packs emailed to you, send me an email on year4@corrie.tameside.sch.uk and I will send one over to you. The new battle on TTRockstars is underway and as I mentioned, some of you may well have been aware that all year 4 children in the country were supposed to take the national times tables check test in June. Obviously, under the current circumstances, all such official tests have now been postponed. However, the people at TTRockstars have sent teachers questionnaires to ask whether we think it would be useful for them to put together some form of test that the children could complete at home around the same time to give us an idea of whether the children are where they should be up to and also to allow the children to take a version of the test that they have been practising for all year. These results will not be sent anywhere and will not have any impact on the children moving forward, but it would be nice to recognise all the work they have been doing. Although the details for how this will work have not yet been put together, I will let you know as soon as I know anything and in the meantime, it would be great if you could have another push on getting the children to really work on their tables at home. If you are unsure of the login details for TTRockstars, let me know and I will send them over to you.

All of the websites below are still providing excellent materials to supplement the work we are providing and, as always, above all, just make sure that your amazing children are staying happy and safe during these incredibly challenging times.

If you need any help or support whatsoever, just send me an email on the above address at any time and I will get back to you as soon as I possibly can.

Stay safe,

Mr. G.

Summer Term

Hi all,

Hope you are all still keeping safe and well and haven’t eaten too many Easter eggs (I’ll be honest, I might have done!)

The home learning packs will be available in school and if you would like me to email you a copy, please let me know on the year 4 email (year4@corrie.tameside.sch.uk).

All the other websites listed below are still available and I will be updating the activities on Active learn regularly.

If you were watching the latest government update yesterday, you may have seen the Education secretary talking about a lot of online lessons which have been prepared for children to us across the nation at this difficult time. I have had a look at these and they seem really good. The lessons are prepared on a day by day basis and have videos of the teaching along with lessons to complete. Apart from the Spanish lessons, which are not relevant as we learn French, they are in line with the learning that the children should be doing. Please have a look at these, but don’t race ahead with them as I will be looking and updating which activities are particularly relevant. The lessons can be found on the following website: https://thenational.academy/

Keep safe and I will be available on the email for any questions or concerns you may have.

Mr. Griffin.

Hi all!

Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing OK. Remember to keep using all of the fantastic online tools that are available. All of the information for how to get onto these is below. I have also made lots of new allocations on the Active Learn website, including some spelling, grammar and writing tasks as well as more maths tasks.

Home Learning Help

Dear Parents / Carers,

Just to make you aware of the different online resources that are available for you to use whilst school is closed. Most of these can be accessed by the teachers, so we can keep up to date with where you are up to. Remember, for TT Rockstars, Active Learn and Spelling Shed, the login details are at the back of the children’s homework books.

-TT Rockstars. The battles are still available and the children should be regularly practicing all of their tables. Remember, if they can earn 1000 points per week, they will be well on their way to mastering their tables knowledge.

-Active Learn. I will be putting new tasks on the active learn website all the time. There will be interactive games, like we usually have, but there will also be workbook and worksheet activities for the children to complete.

-Spelling Shed. The children should also be using spelling shed regularly. Again, I will be updating the words and activities that the children can access on here.

-Yumu. As part of the children’s music curriculum, they have online access to Yumu which is part of the Charanga music scheme we follow in school. I have attached a letter which provides the login details for this site. When the children access this, they will see the activities that I have attached for them to complete. Again, I can see where they are up to with this and add more when necessary.

-Twinkl. This is an online resource that is currently being offered to parents with one month’s free access to the entire site to try to help parents to manage the school closures.

Advice on how to access this from the Twinkl website is as follows:

Step 1: Go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer

Step 2: Enter the code you have received, or CVDTWINKLHELPS if you have not yet been given a code

We have a number of really helpful guides, designed for parents, for different areas of the curriculum. You can direct parents towards our dedicated Parents’ Hub which contains hundreds of educational activities designed for use at home. Or, browse this area yourself and hand-pick individual resources to share. 

For parents with children in EYFS, take a look through our EYFS for Parents area to find some really useful guides and activities to share. 

For primary-aged children, take a look at our 5-11 area. Again, this was created with parents in mind so it’s filled with guides and information about what children should be learning in each year group, for each curriculum area. 

-DiscoveryEducation (Espresso): The login details for these interactive resources are as follows:

Login at: www.discoveryeducation.co.uk

Username: student22435

Password: corrie

-Another site which we have access to thanks to one of our governors is mymaths.co.uk. This has lots of interactive activities on, but for each area, there are also attached lessons, which make it much easier to work through the activities with the children. We will let you know which areas are the best for your children to work on through the website. The login details are as follows:

www.mymaths.co.uk

Login: mgs

Password: prime

 

-As well as the online access which will be available, there is a new homework menu sheet which has been produced for the children to complete a variety of tasks either in their homework books or more practically.

There is also an attached booklet which provides additional work for the children to do in terms of keeping up with science and other foundation subjects. This also contains some additional maths and English activities. Many of these activities are taken from the above Twinkl website, so there will be additional support on there to help with these activities.

We can be contacted on year4@corrie.tameside.sch.uk

Stay safe and look after each other.

 

Yours Sincerely,

Mr. Griffin

Welcome to Year 4
