Updated 22.5.20

Hi Year 6,

We hope you are well and have been enjoying the sunshine that we've had over the last few days (fingers crossed that it continues). 

Since it is half term, we thought that we would give you a bit of a break from our usual timetable!  Instead, we have offered you a P.E challenge that you might want to have a go at if you wanted to.  We usually have our ‘Run a Mile Week’ in school this term so it might be nice to have a go at this at home. The ‘Daily Mile at Home’ is a fun and easy way to keep fit and maintain good health and wellbeing for you and your family.  During each part of the week, you are offered a different challenge when running your mile (I particularly like the ‘Beach Day Challenge’).   

You could also still work on Timestables Rockstarz and continue with your reading.

We will continue with our regular home learning timetable from 1st June.

Have fun and stay safe!

Hi Year 6,

Hoping you are all happy and well.  You are doing a great job of using the website and accessing resources on Google Classroom. Remember, there are practical options and you can do as many or a few as you wish!  If you are having difficulties, please leave a message.

We always look forward to finding out what you have been up to so please let us know and/or send in a photograph.

Next week’s timetable is again attached underneath.  Have fun and stay safe.

Happy V.E Day anniversary Year 6!

75 years ago to the day, peace one again prevailed in Europe. Today, we have a bank holiday to celebrate and remember those who fought so bravely during the Second World War.

V.E Day, which stands for Victory in Europe Day, was the day on which allied forces announced the surrender of Germany in Europe on May 8th, 1945. It is a good opportunity for you to think back to Autumn term and share what you remembered on our work on World War Two.

You may now be at home due to the Coronavirus outbreak, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t still have a weekend of celebrations to mark this special moment in history. There are plenty of ways you can still get involved in the big day, from hosting a special VE Day celebrations picnic or afternoon tea with your household to decorating the house with flags and bunting. If you’re a dab hand in the kitchen, which I know many of you are, try creating up some VE Day-inspired snacks and treats. 

We hope that the information and activity sheet that we left for you last week might give you some extra information on V.E day and also offer some interesting activities for you to have a go at.

On a different note, it was once again lovely for us to ring home and find out how you are doing.  You are all managing so well! More of you are also adding work and photographs onto Google Classroom.  We love looking through what you have done.

We have attached next week’s timetable.  Remember to only do what you can and we are here to help if possible.

Take care and have a fantastic weekend.

Hi Year 6,

Another week has passed and we have really enjoyed reading your work, viewing your messages and looking at some of the pictures that you have sent across.

V.E Day

Friday 8th May is the 75th anniversary of V.E day commemorating the official end of the Second World War in Europe.  We have attached an additional document that includes different information, links to videos, resources, songs and a range of other activities that you could work on at home to commemorate this special occasion. You could complete these practically, on paper or through the use of ICT. Again, you can do as many or as few as you wish. If you have siblings across the school, you might want to do some tasks with them from their pack. It would be lovely to see some of you celebrating this in different ways; you could add some of the activities you do to our class stream if you wanted to.

Home Reading

We appreciate that many of you may have completed the reading books you were sent home.  Fortunately, one of our reading schemes, Oxford Owl, have released many of their books as free e-books that can be read at home on tablets, laptops or computers.

In order to access these books, you need to follow this link to create a log in. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/user/sign_up.html

Once you have verified your email address you will be able to view the free e-book library and the books available. To find your child's level, click on Levels then Oxford Level.

We will be in touch next week (week beginning 4.5.20) to tell you which Oxford Level books your child should be reading. You can make a note of the book and pages your child has read in their reading diary as you would for school.

Important Contact Note:

For confidentiality, please contact school via telephone or from your own personal e-mail account to blackfell.primary@schools.sunderland.gov.uk. This is an open forum and designed to assist children and parents with work at home. Any messages left on here are sent from the general Year 6 gmail account and are not private.

Thank you and stay safe.

Good afternoon everyone. It was great to ring home this week and find out how you all are. We are missing you all and can’t wait to see you again!  Until then, we will continue to help support you with home learning through offering practical ideas and tasks here and adding further resources that can be accessed on Google Classroom.   

We are trying our best to follow the curriculum that you would have studied at school.  Remember, these are suggestions and you can do as few or as many as you wish.  We know some of you are completing work on paper and others are uploading onto Google Classroom for us to look at - both are fine. 


Updated 17.4.20

Good afternoon everyone.  We hope you and your families are well and that you have had an enjoyable Easter. Hopefully, you had fun completing some of the Easter activities set!

Here is a timetable of activities to complete from Monday next week.   We are trying our best to follow the curriculum that you would have studied at school.  Remember, these are suggestions and you can do as few or as many as you wish. We have also provided further resources using Google Classroom;  we have tried to offer practical activities if you can't access some of the resources. 

Please remember, you can upload any pictures or messages onto the Google Classroom to share with the us. We would love to see them.

Thank you for your continued support and stay safe.

Updated: 3.4.20

I hope everyone is well and has managed to access the resources on Google Classroom without too many problems. Thank you for your continued support during this time. We have compiled some fun, hands-on Easter activities for you to have a go at during the Easter holidays if you wish. There is a huge variety of activities and although some have been designed with Year groups in mind however any of them can be completed by children regardless of year group. Please take some time to unwind and relax. If you do feel like trying some of these activities, the resources are uploaded and numbered below. I would love to see some photos of your creations if you make anything (you can post these directly on this stream or onto the assignments set in classwork). We hope you have a lovely Easter break with your families.  

A new timetable of suggested activities will be posted for the first week back after the holidays. Children can still use this page and the blog on Purple Mash to keep in touch with me and each other. 

Many thanks, Miss Dodds/Mr.Barrass

 Hi Year 6,

Hope you are all well and staying safe.  I’m adding an exciting writing competition if you are interested in entering – I know that we have some great writers in our class! 

The Historical Association have launched a historical fiction writing competition. Pupils can set their stories in ANY period or place in the past, so the story can fit in with and extend any historical topic you have studied. Winning pupils will each receive a cash prize of £25 and an engraved Bath Aqua Blue glass paperweight.

I have attached the rules and entry form underneath.

Thank you and good luck!
