Link to the Home Learning letter

Week beginning Monday 13th July

 

This week (your last week of primary school) we would like you to be preparing for your transition to secondary school. Under the butterfly tab at the top of the page you will find a new document 'transition to secondary school' please work through this during the week.

 

 

English

 

Think about your time in primary school- all the things you have learnt, memories you have made, friends you have made, funny moments, what you have enjoyed the most etc. Now write a letter to your teacher telling him/her about all those things and what you are looking forward to as you move to secondary school.

 

Send your letters in using the schoolclosure e mail- your teacher would be delighted to hear from you.

 

Maths

Work through the activities under the Maths tab.

 

Have a good week and hopefully see you on Friday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week beginning 6th July

 

Animal Project Competition

Have you watched the video of some of our teachers who recently visited Chester Zoo?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQiNzV4oqz0  

Over the next week, we would like you to choose an animal that you would find in the zoo and complete a project at home on it. This could include art work, fact files, models, newspaper articles whatever you wish. Please submit your work to us by the end of the week (10th July) as there will be some great prizes up for grabs!

 

English

This week in school we will be continuing reading texts from THE BOOK OF HOPES – Edited by Katherine Rundell https://literacytrust.org.uk/family-zone/9-12/book-hopes/ and doing the activities described below.

 

1)Read ‘Hope, Language of Birds’ by Jackie Morris p76

 Think about how to perform it deciding on which words to draw attention to and any sound effects that might strengthen the performance.

The beginning of the poem talks about the stillness during lockdown. Watch the video of Liverpool in lockdown https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xA0vbyF_Ibg. Afterwards make a list of words and phrases to describe what it was like-try to include figurative language.

Then use these words to write a paragraph describing what Liverpool was like in lockdown.

 

2)Watch ‘The Great Realisation’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nw5KQMXDiM4

Think about all the links to hope and positivity from lockdown: nature, global warming, pollution, learning new things, spending time with family.

What other positives were there? Can you find out any facts about how the world has improved eg air pollution levels., global warming. Watch:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjqTJyokMyQ

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3M908TJG9M

Make a poster to display all the positives from lockdown – try and include some real facts.

 

3)Read ‘Say Something Nice’ by AF Harrold p36

Read through and think about how humour is used in the poem. Listen to AFHLEKPoPod https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9Y68rGVDdw and consider how the poem is performed.

When is the world ‘sometimes grey’?

Consider the layout of poem and impact on the reader. How does it feel to read when presented in this way?

Now think about the nice things that you could say to your friends or family. Create compliment cards for them.

https://www.actionforhappiness.org/media/655411/50_ways_download_-_give_compliment_cards.pdf

.

4)Write a letter to someone to say something nice.

Think about yesterday’s poem and saying nice things to people and how this can make you both feel.

Who would like to say something nice to?  Keyworkers, parents, teachers etc Could you write them a letter to tell them all the nice things you want to say?

 

Share your work with us using the school closure email.

Keep an eye on Twitter for an exciting new competition we have planned.

 

Oak Academy

Week beginning 29th June

English

This week in school we will be reading texts from THE BOOK OF HOPES – Edited by Katherine Rundell https://literacytrust.org.uk/family-zone/9-12/book-hopes/ and doing the activities described below. For other suggestions of activities related to these texts look under the tab 'English- back to school'.

 

Read ‘ME’ by Swapna Haddow p291

 

1)Develop the poem for performance

Think about possible actions, voice, expression, body/facial expression.

Try out different ways of performing the poem.

Record yourself on video and share with us schoolclosure@ricelane.liverpool.sch.uk

2) Write your own version of the poem.

Think about all the things you love about yourself.

Think about the days you don’t feel you love yourself as much as the day before- what can you do on those days to make you feel better?

Look at the structure of the poem and use it as a model to construct own your own poem to celebrating what is great about yourself.

 

Read ‘Bag for Life’ by Joseph Elliot p30

 

1)Plan a short monologue (speech to express mental thoughts) as Amina

Part way through reading the story- stop and think about what might be in the bag. Make predictions giving reasons.  Think about the message of this story? What does it tell you about hope, resilience and perseverance? What is the significance of the stones?

Consider how Amila might have been feeling along the journey and what her thoughts might have been.

Choose different parts of the journey eg. leaving home, entering the forest, after walking for a day, halfway through the second day, getting to the edge of the forest, reaching the city. Consider how Amila might have been feeling at these different points on the journey. Think about the intensity of feeling and whether it is positive/negative. Choose appropriate intensity of words to describe Amila’s feelings at different parts in the journey. Plot on a graph.

Use the carefully selected words to write a sentence about each point.

 

2)Write a monologue as Amina

Use your graph of emotions and the sentences you wrote as a plan to expand upon for your writing. Think about what makes a good piece of year 6 writing.

  • Range of punctuation (inc colons and semi colons)
  • Range of clause structures (relative, subordinate, independent)
  • Fronted adverbials
  • Expanded noun phrases
  • Figurative language (similes, metaphors, personification)
  • Short sentences for effect

Tuesday 9th June

 

Good morning Year 6! Since it is getting closer to the end of term it is time to start thinking about the YEAR BOOK. The year book is something we do every year with Year 6 children and even though this year is a little bit different we still want to create a nice keepsake for you all to be able to look back on when you are old like us! The year book will be full of pictures and memories and everyone will get to contribute to their own section which means we need your help. We need everybody to think about their answers to the following questions (a sentence or two is plenty) and send them in to school in whichever way works best for you. 

 

All about Me - In this section you could include who you live with, your hobbies, favourite food, pets, friends, favourite colour or anything else about yourself.

 

e.g. Hi! My name is ..... and I am 11 years old. I live with my mum, brothers and my pet dog called Benji. My favourite food is pizza and my favourite colour is green.

 

Things I enjoyed most about school - Think about your favourite lessons, activities and trips. Try to explain why these are the things you've enjoyed the most.

 

E.g ...The things I have enjoyed most in school are the trips, especially when we got to stay away over night! I loved Colomendy - it was so much fun. I also really like English and Art lessons - I really enjoyed the ink blotting lessons this year.

 

What I want to be when I'm older - Try to explain why you would like to do this job.

 

E.g...When I'm older I really want to be a police officer because it is a responsible job and I like that I would be protecting my city.

 

We would really like EVERYBODY to get involved so please pass the message on to your friends.

 

Adults... stay posted for more details on how you can order year books in the next few weeks.

Thursday 4th June

 

Good morning year 6! 

 

Continuing with our unit of Oak Academy lessons, the links to today's sessions can be found below.

 

*WARNING: Today's foundation lesson is an older session from April 20th. We are not doing the lesson dated June 4th - Why did the USA and the USSR enter into a Cold War? The reason for this is that we have only just begun using Oak Academy as a resource, and so we don't think it makes sense to jump into a unit half way through. Instead, we feel it's better to do things in the correct order and start the unit from lesson one - even if that means backtracking a few weeks. 

 

1. English: Letter of complaint - clause structures.

https://www.thenational.academy/year-6/english/letter-of-complaint-clause-structures-year-6-wk6-4

 

 

2. Maths: Fractions - to divide a proper fraction by an integer.

https://www.thenational.academy/year-6/maths/fractions-to-divide-a-proper-fraction-by-an-integer-year-6-wk6-3

 

 

3. Foundation - History: What caused the first World War to break out?

https://www.thenational.academy/year-6/foundation/what-caused-the-first-world-war-to-break-out-year-6-wk1-1

 


4. TT Rockstars battle: this is live from 9am until 3:45pm, and features 6O vs 6M, and 6B vs 6T. 

 

 

Good luck with everything, and as always please keep in touch via the school closure email address and/or Twitter!

Monday 1st June

Welcome back Year 6! We hope you had a lovely half term break and were able to enjoy the beautiful weather.

 

Back to work today and we have decided as a school to move to the Oak National Academy lessons so learning at home will be a little different from now on.

Oak National Academy is an online classroom and has been created by teachers specifically to support learning at home at www.thenational.academy.

You can access Oak’s online classroom on any device, you don’t need to log in or remember a password.

Each lesson is delivered by a trained teacher, over a pre-recorded video, and it’s very clear at the start of each session anything you might need (such as pens, paper etc).

Hope you enjoy it- let us know what you think via email schoolclosure@ricelane.liverpool.sch.uk or twitter @Year6RiceLane.

Friday 22nd May

 

It's Friday and it's almost half term but before you take next week off to relax we want to hear all about your dream holiday destinations.

 

There's lots to plan and think about and you can spend as much money as you want! Hopefully you spent some time yesterday doing your research and planning and today your job is to present your dream holiday destination to us! Remember we want all the details - how you're going to get there, how much it will cost, day trips you plan on going on, what clothes you are going to pack, the food you're going to sample and so on.  Refer to the planning sheet to help you.

 

You can present your project in any way you wish - a mood board, a power point presentation, a persuasive poster, a persuasive leaflet, a fact file- whatever takes your fancy. There are some examples in the Dream Holiday tab so take a look-they might help you.

 

As usual, we want you to send us your completed work via e mail schoolclosure@ricelane.liverpool.sch.uk or twitter @Year6RiceLane and remember to use the hashtag #Y6dreamholiday. 

 

Have fun dreaming and happy halfterm! smiley

Thursday 22nd May

Welcome back campers!

For the last three days you have been taking part in Rice Lane’s Virtual Camp – we hope you enjoyed it and if you haven’t yet shared your photos, there is still time– and now, for the last two days of this half term, we would like you to think further afield…

Lots of us have had our holidays cancelled for this year but we want you to think about and plan your DREAM HOLIDAY. Where would you and your family go after lockdown if you could choose anywhere in the whole world? I think I’d pick Africa to see lots of amazing animals in the wild but I might change my mind when I’ve seen your suggestions!

Once you have decided where your dream destination is we want you to pick from the activities below to create a mini project all about this place. It is completely up to you how you present this - you could create a Powerpoint, create a big mood board using an old cardboard box, create a mini book... however you would like to share your ideas!

As always, we would love to see what you create so please tweet or email us anything you do.

Wednesday 20th May 2020

 

Good morning virtual-campers! Welcome to our third and final day of virtual-camp week. As you will likely be aware,  the typical BBC Bitesize activities have been put on pause this week, as we are instead inviting you to take part in a plethora of PGL-inspired challenges and activities. Don't worry though, the Bitesize page is still there for you if you'd like to complete something from it, however, what we'd really like to see is some photo evidence of your virtual-camp efforts!

 

If you haven't already had a look, you can get started by clicking on the badger icon at the top of this page in order to see a breakdown of the activities and challenges that we'd like you to try.

 

For those of you out there that have already been taking part, congratulations! We have loved seeing all of your efforts thus far and look forward to seeing many more of them today.

 

If you have been taking part over the past two days, we imagine that you may have already completed most of the key challenges and so today offers an opportunity to complete some of the 'fun activities' listed under the badger icon. Within that list, there are a couple in particular that we think would be mightily impressive:

 

1. Learn a magic trick.

2. Learn to juggle.

3. Create an origami animal...or even zoo!

 

With that said, there is one key activity that I imagine few of you have been able to attempt so far due to the weather, and today might be your best opportunity as we have been forecast clear skies all day: it would be amazing to see somebody complete the 'star gazing' challenge and send over any/all photographs as evidence tomorrow morning. This activity is very PGL-esque and so we feel it would be an excellent way to round-off the three days of challenges.

 

Good luck campers!

 

For any and all photographs of your hard work, please let us know by sending them over via either Twitter or the Rice Lane closure email address.

Tuesday 19th May

 

Hello Year 6 and welcome to day 2 of your virtual camp week! How many challenges did you manage to complete yesterday? Well done to everyone who has sent us pictures of what they got up to: we have seen some fantastic 'camp fire' and 'tent' creations. Did any of you actually spend the night in your tents?

 

Today is a chance to complete some more challenges. How about going on a virtual day trip? Take a look at the link at the top of this page for some ideas of where you could go. We also need something to cook on our camp fires so can you plan a meal for the whole family that costs less than £10?

 

Don't forget there are prizes for the most challenges completed and also the tidiest dorms (I'm sure parents will love this one!) Why don't you try and change your own bedding?

 

We hope you have a lovely day at 'camp' and we can't wait to see what you get up to. Remember to email or tweet us some photos and #RLY6virtualcamp :) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday 18th May

 

Good morning Year 6 and welcome to Virtual Camp week!

This morning we should have been heading off to PGL together. However, unfortunately we are all at home instead. So for this week only we bring you the Year 6 Rice Lane Virtual Camp week.

 

Under the Virtual Camp tab (badger) at the top of the page you will find everything you need.

 

The first thing you need to do this morning is set up your tent and build your camp fire!!

After that you need to complete one key challenge and as many optional challenges and activities as you wish.

 

There will be prizes for the children who complete the most tasks. All we ask is that you send us evidence of what you have completed on Twitter @Year6RiceLane or email schoolclosure@ricelane.liverpool.sch.uk.

 

We would really like you to embrace the virtual camp this week and have some fun doing so. The bitesize activities are also still available to complete is you wish.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zncsscw/year-6-and-p7-lessons/1.

 

Have an amazing day smiley.

Hello again year 6!

 

Hopefully you're all feeling suitably energised and refreshed after another weekend at home.

 

Here are the links for today's lessons (5 in total). Please keep reading to the very bottom as there are two extra activities listed in green (4 and 5)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

4. Here is a new PE activity that Mr Lockley has set up. It's totally free and an amazing new resource for children to stay active. Please spread the word and let everyone in your year group know about it. Here is the link, and Mr Lockley's description on how to best use the resource:

 

https://www.getset.co.uk/travel-tokyo/school/rice-lane-primary-school-l9-3bu 

 

 

"Above you will find a link to the provider Get Set, they are a great resource for all things healthy living. They work alongside some of the best Olympians and Paralympians to bring fun and exciting ways to get young children and families living a healthy lifestyle.

 

Here at Rice Lane Primary we have completed many of the Get Set competitions over the years, including the ALDI sticker collection. This is their latest offering to Primary Schools to build an awareness of healthy living.

 

We ask that any physical activity over this period of Home Learning; for example, ball games, moving and dancing, going for a walk or riding a bike/scooter is logged through the website. All you need to do is follow the link above, select log activity, choose your team (which is your class name), follow the onscreen selection and finally submit your activity.

 

If your class beat the weekly goal set by the team behind Get Set you will be in the running to win the prize for that week. Mr Lockley will also reward the class with a prize that completes the most physical activity during this home learning period.

 

Good luck and get moving!"

 

------------------------------------------------

 

5. The final resource for the day is an Art activity. During the course of the lockdown, some of the world's most famous artists (Grayson Perry, Anthony Gormley etc) have collaborated to create two Art activity packs for children to have a go at. They are totally free - you just need a parent to submit an email address in order to retrieve the activities. Please find the link below:

 

https://firstsite.uk/art-is-where-the-home-is/

 

 

Good luck with everything year 6, and please keep us informed of your progress on Twitter.

Going forward, we will be mostly suggesting lessons from the BBC Bitesize website. Over the Easter break, they have created some fantastic resources and content for home learning. They have managed to get some famous faces involved and each of their lessons are progressive, age-appropriate and easy to follow: they each have a video introduction and some interactive activities. They will be releasing a new timetable each week and also have a TV schedule for their home learning on BBC iPlayer (see timetables above).

Friday 3rd April

Well done for getting to the end of your second week of home learning and you’ll all be delighted to know that we break up for the Easter holidays today!! This means we won’t be setting you daily tasks on the website or twitter but we will leave you with some ideas of fun activities you might like to complete over the two-week break. Hope you all have a lovely break and are ready to engage fully with us again on Monday 20th April.

 

Maths:

TT rockstars- times tables. After yesterday's battle 60 and 6T play in the final today while 6M battle 6B. 

White Rose Year 6. Week 2 lessons 4 and 5 are all about angles. Do the powerpoint lesson and activities. You can also check your answers. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

Also remember to check out Education city where we have set you lots of maths activities in the cities.

English:

Spellings on spelling shed. Well done if you have joined some of the Hive games. We will set these regularly after the Easter break. 

 

Read your book for half an hour. Make a note of any new words and clarify. Write a 30-word summary of what you have read.

 

Write your own Happy News!

Keep an eye out for happy news stories happening around you or in your neighbourhood eg. Applause for the nhs, restaurants delivering free meals to those in need etc.

Check out BBC Uplifting stories https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/topics/cx2pk70323et/uplifting-stories and/or watch Newsround’s Happy News for more ideas. https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/50434875

Check out this link for more ideas and a template you could use.

https://literacywithmissp.com/2020/04/01/activity-9-happy-news/#more-1221

 

History:

Continuing with our WW2 topic – go on a virtual tour of Anne Frank’s museum https://www.annefrank.org/en/anne-frank/secret-annex/ and read some of her diary entries on the video link. This might also inspire some of you to begin your own diary (if you haven’t already done so!).

We’d really like to know how you are all doing so if your mum or dad have Twitter – send us a tweet @Year6RiceLane or otherwise send us an e mail – schoolclosure@ricelane.liverpool.sch.uk.

 

Happy Easter and enjoy the break!

  • Year 6 Calculating Scale Factors

Wednesday 1st April

 

Greetings year 6!

 

We hope that you are all well and doing your utmost to alleviate the boredom of "lockdown" with some choicely picked home-learning activities!

 

Your tasks for today –

 

Reading:

 

1. Warm-up: use a dictionary to find the meanings of the words utmost, alleviate, boredom and choicely 😉.

2. For those of you that are missing the challenge of whole-class reading, please find attached a reading comprehension (Endangered) that should put all of your Read Theory practice to the test. Don’t worry about printing anything out – simply use your jotter to write down the question numbers and corresponding answers. Once finished (and only once finished!), have a look at the answer booklet in order to calculate your score. Good luck!

3. As an extra challenge (for those of you that complete the first activities with aplomb), please find attached an especially tricky word search. Be warned, this is difficult! If it proves to be too challenging, you may find it useful to consult your calendar for some tips 😉

 

Maths:

1. Warm up: Complete a few rounds of “Countdown” – you have one minute to create a 3-digit number using the four operations.

Note: the website requires Flash player, so you may need to make sure that your web browser isn’t blocking Flash from running (settings are accessible via clicking on the little padlock next to the URL web address).

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?f=countdowntimerv3

 

2. Main activity: Here as a result of popular request, please find attached a Maths Mystery challenge. Again, don’t worry about printing anything out as the activity can be completed just as easily by using a jotter and a piece of paper. Warning: be careful scrolling down too ferociously to the bottom of the booklet, as you’ll likely see all of the answers unintentionally.

 

Writing:

 

Today’s writing task is to write a film review of the most recent film that you have seen. Give the film a score out of five, and then go into detail on why you think it deserves that score.

 

French (or Spanish):

Duolingo! Via either the website or the free downloadable app, have a go at teaching yourself some French or Spanish in preparation for secondary school! The app is extremely popular around the globe and is often cited as the most popular means by which to learn a foreign language.

 

Follow the link below to get yourself started! The app is totally free and is widely used by secondary schools to supplement the learning of foreign languages.
