Home Learning Week beginning 19th July!
Hi home learners, can't believe we are almost done for the year and I am so sorry if you are still poorly or are having to isolate! I promise the work we set you this week will be light and hopefully fun for you. At school we are looking back at our time at WBJS and thinking of ways that we can remember all the amazing memories you have made.
English - 19th July, 2021
This morning we are all going to be writing some of our favourite memories at WBJS! Have a go at thinking of memories that stand out to you and share them on your portfolio. You could try to think of one from Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6. Or you may have 3 memories from year 6 and 1 or from Year 3 or 4. We would like you to present some of your favourite memories to us, no less than 3 and no more than 6. You can do this any way you like, in a power point, on paper, you could draw, paint, film yourself. Just get creative :) Think about trips, productions, topics you've liked, projects you've liked and get going. We look forward to reading/seeing them.
English 20th July
Today the children in school are writing a letter to their new tutors in secondary school. Have a go at introducing yourself to your new tutor, what do you think they would like to know? What are your hobbies? What are you looking forward to? Is there anything you are a little bit anxious about? You can take this with you on your first day at secondary school. So make it fantastic!
Maths - NINJA MATHS
Have a go at some ninja maths this week! Give yourself 5 minutes to complete as many questions as you can!
Art (complete at some point this week)
Time to reflect! (complete at your own pace this week)
Some fun activities for you to complete
In school the children are designing their own fairground ride and are then having a go at making them! Could you design a ride and see if you can make something at home with any resources you can find. There is a design template and a powerpoint to have a look at. Get creative!
Home Learning Week beginning Monday 12th July 2021
Hello Home Learners,
We are very sad you are not with us in school this week, but you'll be back soon. Stay positive and do a bit each day to keep your brains active.
Everyone in Y6 seems to be at different stages with our various projects, so you will need to use your common sense and check to see which bits of work are appropriate for you.
Class 10. Everyone who went to PGL will need to go back to the very beginning for maths and literacy. Try Barvember Day 1 or the first ISeeMaths lesson. Then try Refugees Part 1 and work through them day by day.
Class 12. You will need to go back to the beginning for maths, but because you were in school last week, you can start with Refugees Part 5 for English.
Submit all your work via ClassDojo in the usual fashion.
These tasks are ongoing and you can choose one per day to have a look at.
The first is on a website called ISeeMaths.com. Go to the homelearning section for Years 5-6 and work through them. There is a video to watch and a task to do afterwards. I really enjoyed doing these during the first lockdown.
Secondly, I'm attaching some Barvember problem solving. The point is to use a bar model to solve them! You can choose from easy to difficult tasks. Bar models are fantastic for problem solving.... you'll never look back!
In our last few English lessons of Year 6, we have been working on a series of lessons about Refugees.
Start at Part 1 and work your way through.
Refugees Part 6 - Plan a persuasive letter
Refugees Part 5 - Adapt a letter
Refugees Part 4. - Features of a Persuasive Letter
Refugees Part 3.
We've read the book 'The Day the War Came' in class. It was written by Nicola Davies when she heard that the UK government refused to allow unaccompanied children into the country to live safely. You can read it again here
Think about this question:
'Should we allow more unaccompanied refugee children into this country?'
Drawing on the list of resources below, come up with two lists. One should be full of reasons why NO we should not allow more unaccompanied refugee children into the country. The other should be a list of reasons for YES we should.
Bring your lists into school when you come back.
Refugees Part 2.
Carry out some research about child refugees using the internet.
Try this video.
Refugees Part 1
In school we are looking at this poem this week called Refugees by Brian Bilston.
Read it aloud, several times. See if you can work out what it means.
Then read it in the other direction, starting at the bottom and reading upwards. Now what is the message?
Task one. Read it to a grown up, share what you think it means read in both directions.
Task two. Perform it aloud and record yourself as a video on Dojo for your class teacher. Aim to express the meaning in the manner that you read it.
GEOGRAPHY for week beginning 12th July

Thursday 1st July, 2021
Hi Class 10,
Here we go again! Next week, we have assessments, as they were pencilled in for the week beginning July 5th, but we're scheduled to be a little busy then.
As a result, we're going to do a little revision from home. I'll explain more in the morning.
A few things to think about for the week: we're going to provide a selection of afternoon activities, from which you can choose what suits. One such task will be to make a dish from your Euro 2020 country. If this interests you, then maybe talk it through with your parents/carers sooner rather than later.
I'm also putting up some white rose maths: The Bakery. It's an ongoing project that you can chip away at over the week. Do the work in order, though: it makes more sense that way.
See you at 10am tomorrow.
Friday, 25th June

Maths - The Bakery - part 2 - three sections; do as much as you feel comfortable with - powerpoint further down the page under Monday heading

2) We also need to make some stage backdrops for when we perform. We'd like you to inspire us by trying out some designs. What's the Crime, Mr Wolf.
Consider the setting of the play - a courtroom, mostly, but filled largely with woodland animals. Make it quirky, essentially.
