Year Six Assignments on Teams

Mrs Houston

Week Three: 18th January to the 22nd January 2021

Good Morning Year Six, Parent(s) and Guardian(s),

The following information will be shared on the class web page, your individual teams page, the latest news and class chat so there is no excuse for any child not knowing where your work is, how you can access it and my expectations of you. If there are any problems I am on line between 9.00 am and 3.30 pm. (Officially – lot longer than that with all the questions you send!)  It is your responsibility to bring this information to your parents’ attention, if they do not access the information from different platforms because of family and work commitments in these difficult times. Let me know on class chat on Monday if you have done this please.

On Wednesday (20th January) all parents in year six will be contacted by Mrs Houston. By then you should have logged time for Mathletics and Bug Club and I will highlight all those children who engage on a daily basis on class chat as well as downloading work so everybody can see and celebrate the work being produced by individuals. Last weeks engagement in home learning was amazing. I hope this week will be even better!

If there is no evidence of participation, Mrs Houston will contact all parents to report lack of engagement, but she will also contact them to celebrate those children who are working hard to engage and take their learning forward. (You will know from last week’s experience this is exactly what happened.) I have now marked all your school work from last week’s assignments and parents will be able to see where work that was not completed. I will assign levels where assignments are WAG assessments so you and your families are fully aware of where you are currently operating in terms of attainment and then focus on what you can do to improve.

I am so pleased to report to you children and to your families, that engagement was around 70% for all work set accept for Mathematics. Therefore, I have set more maths tasks this week and they will be completed to the best of your ability as I will award a level of attainment for each that will be recorded in the marking feedback.

I have decided to list all the work for this week below and leave it to your discretion the order in which you complete your work. I will provide written feedback as the week goes along, but some work will not be marked until Saturday as there was a surge of work uploaded on Friday – it made my day!

Children, if there is any reason why work cannot be done, please let your family let me know or contact me on our individual chat. Don’t be afraid to contact your friends on the year six class chat. These are very challenging times, sometimes it doesn’t seem real, so helping each other is a way of getting through this so that we are active and have people to talk to. Remember what I said on chat last week … kind words, thoughts and we include everyone.  I, and all the staff of Saint Joseph’s, especially our headteacher, Mrs Riordan, are here to help.

Do your best this week, remember there are lots of people there to support you and you can have a chat together on class chat any time you want – Mrs Houston will do as she has done this week, she will let you talk for a while and then we go back to work, but the chat about the birth of the kittens was great!

Remember there is a prayer PPT to help start the day, or for times you want some quiet time and also at the beginning of many of the teaching audio videos prepared by Mrs Houston.

Remember to give of your best, no one can ask for more. This is a difficult time and I think that most of us will realise that school is a great place to be. Even if I tell you off, please know that I and all the staff at Saint Joseph’s think you are all FANTASTIC, because no one in society has ever experienced circumstances like this at your age – you are the ‘Covid Generation’ who have shown such perseverance and I am so proud to be your teacher.

God bless you and all you families! Keep safe! Stick to the rules!

Speak to you Monday Year Six.

Mrs H.  😊

Remember there is a prayer PPT to help start the day, or for times you want some quiet time and also at the beginning of many of the teaching audio videos prepared by Mrs Houston.

Remember to give of your best, no one can ask for more. This is a difficult time and I think that most of us will realise that school is a great place to be. Even if I tell you off, please know that I and all the staff at Saint Joseph’s think you are all FANTASTIC, because no one in society has ever experienced circumstances like this at your age – you are the ‘Covid Generation’ who have shown such perseverance and I am so proud to be your teacher.

God bless you and all you families! Keep safe! Stick to the rules!

Speak to you Monday Year Six.

Week Three: 18th January to the 22nd January 2021

Good Morning Year Six, Parent(s) and Guardian(s),

The following information will be shared on the class web page, your individual teams page, the latest news and class chat so there is no excuse for any child not knowing where your work is, how you can access it and my expectations of you. If there are any problems I am on line between 9.00 am and 3.30 pm. (Officially – lot longer than that with all the questions you send!)  It is your responsibility to bring this information to your parents’ attention, if they do not access the information from different platforms because of family and work commitments in these difficult times. Let me know on class chat on Monday if you have done this please.

On Wednesday (20th January) all parents in year six will be contacted by Mrs Houston. By then you should have logged time for Mathletics and Bug Club and I will highlight all those children who engage on a daily basis on class chat as well as downloading work so everybody can see and celebrate the work being produced by individuals. Last weeks engagement in home learning was amazing. I hope this week will be even better!

If there is no evidence of participation, Mrs Houston will contact all parents to report lack of engagement, but she will also contact them to celebrate those children who are working hard to engage and take their learning forward. (You will know from last week’s experience this is exactly what happened.) I have now marked all your school work from last week’s assignments and parents will be able to see where work that was not completed. I will assign levels where assignments are WAG assessments so you and your families are fully aware of where you are currently operating in terms of attainment and then focus on what you can do to improve.

I am so pleased to report to you children and to your families, that engagement was around 70% for all work set accept for Mathematics. Therefore, I have set more maths tasks this week and they will be completed to the best of your ability as I will award a level of attainment for each that will be recorded in the marking feedback.

I have decided to list all the work for this week below and leave it to your discretion the order in which you complete your work. I will provide written feedback as the week goes along, but some work will not be marked until Saturday as there was a surge of work uploaded on Friday – it made my day!

Children, if there is any reason why work cannot be done, please let your family let me know or contact me on our individual chat. Don’t be afraid to contact your friends on the year six class chat. These are very challenging times, sometimes it doesn’t seem real, so helping each other is a way of getting through this so that we are active and have people to talk to. Remember what I said on chat last week … kind words, thoughts and we include everyone.  I, and all the staff of Saint Joseph’s, especially our headteacher, Mrs Riordan, are here to help.

Do your best this week, remember there are lots of people there to support you and you can have a chat together on class chat any time you want – Mrs Houston will do as she has done this week, she will let you talk for a while and then we go back to work, but the chat about the birth of the kittens was great!

Instruction / Teaching Input: Flipgrid Audio Teaching PPT by Mrs Houston on ‘Yr Ysgol’ / School – Unfortunately this presentation was cut short as Flipgrid has only a 10 minute duration. Thus, the PPT has been added without the audio so you can access instructions about your learning in Welsh

Learning Task One: To use the PPT, the Welsh and English learning template and the final written piece template to produce your own piece of writing on ‘Yr Ygol’ that will be added to the Dyma Fi work completed by children last week. This is 90-minute task

Learning Task Two:  To use your script to make a video of your work on ‘Yr Ysgol’.  This is 30-minute task. Remember not just to upload your work on to Flipgrid, but to your own teams’ page and class page so everybody can listen to the work you have produced and read your written work. Good luck year six.

Mrs Houston

Week Three: 18th January to the 22nd January 2021

Good Morning Year Six, Parent(s) and Guardian(s),

The following information will be shared on the class web page, your individual teams page, the latest news and class chat so there is no excuse for any child not knowing where your work is, how you can access it and my expectations of you. If there are any problems I am on line between 9.00 am and 3.30 pm. (Officially – lot longer than that with all the questions you send!)  It is your responsibility to bring this information to your parents’ attention, if they do not access the information from different platforms because of family and work commitments in these difficult times. Let me know on class chat on Monday if you have done this please.

On Wednesday (20th January) all parents in year six will be contacted by Mrs Houston. By then you should have logged time for Mathletics and Bug Club and I will highlight all those children who engage on a daily basis on class chat as well as downloading work so everybody can see and celebrate the work being produced by individuals. Last weeks engagement in home learning was amazing. I hope this week will be even better!

If there is no evidence of participation, Mrs Houston will contact all parents to report lack of engagement, but she will also contact them to celebrate those children who are working hard to engage and take their learning forward. (You will know from last week’s experience this is exactly what happened.) I have now marked all your school work from last week’s assignments and parents will be able to see where work that was not completed. I will assign levels where assignments are WAG assessments so you and your families are fully aware of where you are currently operating in terms of attainment and then focus on what you can do to improve.

I am so pleased to report to you children and to your families, that engagement was around 70% for all work set accept for Mathematics. Therefore, I have set more maths tasks this week and they will be completed to the best of your ability as I will award a level of attainment for each that will be recorded in the marking feedback.

I have decided to list all the work for this week below and leave it to your discretion the order in which you complete your work. I will provide written feedback as the week goes along, but some work will not be marked until Saturday as there was a surge of work uploaded on Friday – it made my day!

Children, if there is any reason why work cannot be done, please let your family let me know or contact me on our individual chat. Don’t be afraid to contact your friends on the year six class chat. These are very challenging times, sometimes it doesn’t seem real, so helping each other is a way of getting through this so that we are active and have people to talk to. Remember what I said on chat last week … kind words, thoughts and we include everyone.  I, and all the staff of Saint Joseph’s, especially our headteacher, Mrs Riordan, are here to help.

Do your best this week, remember there are lots of people there to support you and you can have a chat together on class chat any time you want – Mrs Houston will do as she has done this week, she will let you talk for a while and then we go back to work, but the chat about the birth of the kittens was great!

Remember there is a prayer PPT to help start the day, or for times you want some quiet time and also at the beginning of many of the teaching audio videos prepared by Mrs Houston.

Remember to give of your best, no one can ask for more. This is a difficult time and I think that most of us will realise that school is a great place to be. Even if I tell you off, please know that I and all the staff at Saint Joseph’s think you are all FANTASTIC, because no one in society has ever experienced circumstances like this at your age – you are the ‘Covid Generation’ who have shown such perseverance and I am so proud to be your teacher.

God bless you and all you families! Keep safe! Stick to the rules!

Speak to you Monday Year Six.

  • ambitious, capable learners who undertake research and evaluate critically what they find and are ready to learn throughout their lives
  • enterprising, creative contributors who give of their energy and skills so that other people will benefit and are ready to play a full part in life and work
  • ethical, informed citizens who show their commitment to the sustainability of the planet and are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world

Literacy and Spellings

 

We understand the importance of literacy skills and their use within the wider world.  As part of your child's literacy lessons, they will be learning to spell words relating to specific patterns each week in class.  

 

The children will be tested on their spellings throughout the year. Spellings and test dates are shown at the bottom of the page. The children are expected to learn their spellings in preparation for each test. 

 

 

PE

 

PE will take place every.  Please make sure you bring your kit and suitable footwear. 

 

Expectations

 

Bug Club

It is expected that the children use Bug Club to support to developing their reading skills at home. Books have been assigned to each child and can be accessed using under the 'Useful Links' section below. 

 

Mathletics

Children also have access to Mathletics. which is an online learning resource which supports the development of mathematical skills at home. Children are expected to make use of this resource on an weekly basis and work their way through the challenges assigned to them. A link to the site can be found under the 'Useful Links' section below.  

 

The link below lists all Mathletics curriculum activities associated with each Wales course, and demonstrates how these fit within the National Curriculum Programme of Study for Wales.

 

Please work through each activity for your year group. There are 1000+ activities available to ensure you can continue to develop your mathematics skills at home. The school invests in Mathletics to provide all learners with access to relevant content that will reinforce their learning and challenge them to go to the next level.

 

Course are supported with activities, eBooks, rich tasks and other resources. By fully engaging with all that Mathletics has to offer, no additional resources are required to develop your maths skills at home. We do however, recommend that children engage with past papers to familiarise themselves with the types of questions they may see in their tests.

Hwb

At St. Joseph's R.C. Primary School, we use Hwb, which is a collection of online tools provided by the Welsh Government, to develop digital skills. Hwb also provides the children with access to Encyclopedia Britannica, should they need to carry out research at home. Tools which support the children in developing their maths, literacy and programming skills are also accessible via the site. 

 

Elements of the ‘My St. Josephs’ umbrella, which was introduced in 2018, are completed using one of the tools available within Hwb.  The umbrella comprises of ‘My Virtues’, ‘My Targets’, ‘My Voice’, ‘My Way’ and ‘My Challenge’. These are known as the ‘5 MYs’ and every child’s learning journey in Key Stage 2 will be evidenced through these. 


My Virtues’ and ‘My Targets’ are both completed independently by the children on Hwb, using Microsoft Teams. These are to be updated throughout the year as part of their homework.

 

Microsoft Teams (accessed within Hwb and Office 365) is used as our main tool for developing digital skills and facilitating online collaboration within our school. Homework will often be set via the 'Assignments' tab.
