Inspire, believe, achieve!

Year 6 Mr Pasdari

Hello Year6KP!

 

What a strange time we all find ourselves in! I hope you are all taking advantage of the extra family time you have and are trying out some new games, instruments and skills to impress everyone at home. Myself, Mrs. Nolan and Mrs. Gilbert are missing you all very much and are sad we don't get to see you all each day. 

 

Remember that as well as spending valuable time with family and having a well-deserved Easter break (make sure you eat ALL the chocolate btw), you try and get yourselves into a routine that includes some home-learning. Have a look at the suggested home-learning timetable as it might help give you some ideas and you have the Year 6 CGP books for maths and reading, as well as all of your login details for Mathletics, Bug Club, Coding and Spag! There is also a fun home-learning project about out amazing city of Manchester on the class page full of different tasks that will keep you busy.

 

Completing just a small amount each day will go along way before we all go back to normality! I'm looking forward to the day that I can see you all once more! Stay safe everybody. I'd love to see the fantastic work you complete, so please send it to me on kpasdari@firs.trafford.sch.uk

Breathing exercises with Mrs. G

Still image for this video
Mrs. Gilbert has used her expertise in all things well being and yoga and has created an extremely helpful video for us that will help us develop some breathing exercises that will help calm us and clear our thoughts when we may be finding it difficult to relax. The exercises are easy to do and can be done anywhere in the house on your own or even with your family. It won't take long! I am sure you will make great use of the video and thank you Mrs. Gilbert for creating it all :)

Go-To Art Activities

Here are a range of fun Art activities that you can try out at home! 

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and, as always, are ready to work hard this term and continue to grow our brains in order to reach our potential!

 

With the SAT's tests approaching in May, work in Maths and English will be geared towards pushing the children's ability to the next level and giving them a chance to show how creative they can be! To make this possible it is essential that pupils maintain excellent attendance throughout this term. This term's topic will focus on our city of Manchester! We will look at how Manchester has developed through the centuries, how important this is and what exactly makes our city great and unique. I will attach our newsletter which will contain full details of this term’s objectives, but our highlights include:

 

-English-

  • Focussing on the classic Shakespeare story of Macbeth.
  • An explanation text.
  • A recount in the style of Romeo and Juliet.

 

-Maths-

  • Multiplying and dividing fractions.
  • Solve problems involving the calculation and the conversion of units of measure (including length, mass, money and time).
  • Draw and translate simple shapes on the co-ordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes.
  •  Illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius.

-Topic-

  • Focussing on how the Industrial Revolution changed the dynamics of trade in Manchester and the growth the city has had in its’ economy and importance.
  • Studying the history of The Peterloo Massacre and the impact it had on the city.
  • Structures – designing and building Mancunian monuments.
  • Studying and replicating the unique designs of L. S. Lowry.

 

 It is particularly important that the children continue reading regularly at home to help their understanding of writing and comprehension whilst trying their best with homework in order to consolidate their grammar and maths learning from the week.

 

Our weekly routine will be...

  • Reading Records handed in on Tuesdays.
  • Homework books handed out on Fridays and returned in on Wednesdays.
  • P.E. kits (yellow t-shirts, black shorts or tracksuit bottoms during the Winter months and trainers or black pumps) are required each Friday.

 

If you need to speak to me regarding any issues, do not hesitate to contact me and make sure you follow @firsprimarysale and search #Year6KP to keep track of all our messages, fun activities and work we produce each week!

 

Thanks for your continued support.

Mr Pasdari, Mrs Nolan and Mrs Gilbert
