Reading: Please could you read for an hour today? This can be your Bug Club Book or your own choice of reading book. If you have not finished your Holes reading for this week, use this day as a chance to do this.
English – From Year 5 to Year 6. Write a letter or create a Q&A page for giving advice to Year 5 about moving to Y6 and what it is like. Think about behaviour expectations, the curriculum and topics, work focus, roles and responsibilities across the school – not sure we’ll be doing Special Friends straight away but you can mention. We will use these in September for Y6 so do please send them in. We might also do some work on these next week in school
Filming for Year 6 – Please continue to send in any films/photographs etc you would like to be added to our video. Last year we created timelapses of some motivational words and nice messages which were written in chalk on a black card. These were added to the video. Can you create a timelapse of a message? Please send in to us today or over the weekend so that we can put the film together ready for next Friday.
Transition to secondary school - Travelling safely to secondary school
The transition between primary and secondary school is one of the most important and eventful times in a your education and even though you haven't had your visits there are still lots of things to think about. Warwickshire Road Safety Club have developed this road safety resource to help you plan and prepare for your new journeys to secondary school by equipping you with the skills and knowledge needed to plan the route and prepare for unexpected challenges. Road Safety Education is vital at this stage as children starting secondary school are more at risk as they often travel further and start walking or cycling independently. This week in school we have watched the videos and done the correlating activities so if you haven't done this then please go through them. If you have already watch them in school then it might be a good idea to share these again with an adult to help you plan, prepare and rehearse your journeys to secondary school.
Thursday 9th July
Good morning Year 6 - here are the last few tasks for this week.
English - 'Holes the Musical'
Continue reading, listening and working on your chosen tasks form the 7 activities that you could choose from that were listed yesterday.
1. Watch Video: Can be viewed on the school website or through the link here: https://vimeo.com/432269890
2. Activity worksheet: ‘Lesson 4 – Reflections.’
Wednesday 8th July
Good morning Year 6. Another day for us all at home or at school. We hope that you have had a good week so far. School has been great and we have done lots on road safety and making safe choices about how we will travel to secondary school in September. The youtube clips will be there on Friday if you haven't been in school but well worth going through them again and with grown ups. If you haven't been in school and haven't done already, please send in any clips for the end of year videos - we do really want to include everyone so if you haven't had chance to send in a clip, please do by the end of the week so that Mr Lether can start work on the editing.
Please look on last week's web page for the YouTube link to the song.
There isn't anymore Science or Topic for this week so you might want to do some more work on your Art Sculpture - we have had some great ones sent in which I am going to put on the webpage this morning. Also this gives you more time to work on the English-based production task.
Have a good day, Mrs Swanwick
English - for Wednesday and Thursday
Task 1. Over the next two days, complete reading Holes or listening to it on the YouTube audio: Chapters 42 – 50. All of the audio section s will be loaded on to the website – there are too many to list here!
Tasks for L3 & L4 - Usually, this is the week that we would have put on an end-of-year production (we won’t say any more about this) so with this in mind we thought that the last few tasks for ‘Holes’ would link into the idea that ‘Holes’ the book and film could be turned into a musical – think back to the last time we were all out together at The Boy in the Dress!
There are 7 different possible activities and we would like you to choose 3 to do:
1. Set design - Create a set for the background of one of the scenes
2. Costume design - Whether it is Stanley, Zero, the Warden or Mr Sir. Design a costume for this character and label the design features and design specifics
3. Make up and hairstylist – think about the colours, hairstyles and make-up these characters will need under the lighting of the stage
4. Programme and billboard poster design – design your own programme front cover and/or poster to advertise ‘Holes – the Musical’
5. Script – select a chapter or part of the story and write the script. An optional extra wold be to record and share with us.
6. Song - Create your own song lyrics for part of Holes
7. Music composition – either for the entrance or exit of a character, scene change or to accompany a song, create your own accompaniment.
1. Watch Video: Can be viewed on the school website or through the link here: https://vimeo.com/432269759

Task 1: Read Chapter 37 – 42 of Holes by Louis Sachar or listen to it on you tube
Task 2: Identify the literary devices that the author uses – select another example from the list.
Task 3: How well do you think the book is suited to being an audiobook? Select a chapter or a couple of pages and read it aloud as if it was a section of an audiobook – try a few accents or different voices for the characters too. If you would like to send a recording in for us to listen to we’d love to hear.
