Oak National Academy Home Learning

In addition the the paper home learning pack, we have put a link below of some extra learning for this week from Oak Academy. This is some revision of Year 5 learning to make sure you are ready to take on the Year 6 curriculum in school.

If you are currently at home and not able to come into school we will still be sending home a paper copy of the learning we are doing in the classroom to ensure you are keeping up and are ready to re-enter the classroom wihout any gaps in your learning. We expect you to take responsibility for your home learning so that you can actively engage in your learning in the classroom on your return.

Debate!

Using all of the information we found during our research, we went head to head in a series of exciting debates. We found lots of evidence to prove our points and did very well to clearly explain our thoughts. We still can’t agree which event was the most important: the Invasion of Poland, Pearl Harbour, D-Day or the Battle of Britain.

What was the Main Turning Point in WW2?

This afternoon, we have been exercising our research muscles. In groups, we have been finding out about the Battle of Britain, Pearl Harbour, the Evacuation of Dunkirk and the Invasion of Poland. We are preparing to debate which is the most important event at the end of the week. What do you think is the most important event in WW2?

Get Lost in a Good Book

We love story time in year 6. From going to exciting places to meeting interesting characters, there is nothing more relaxing than sitting down with a good book. The three year 6 classes at the minute are reading something different! In 6H, they have been reading The Malamander by Thomas Taylor. In 6G, they have been reading The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Raúf. In 6M, they have been reading There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom by Louis Sachar.
