Children's Mental Health Week
Children's Mental Health Week is taking place on 1-7 February 2021. This year's theme is Express Yourself.
On the Nyewood website we have a dedicated section to Wellbeing. Click here.
Here you will find activities and link to support both you and your children during the current world situation and beyond.
Due to the school closing for the majority of children, the Year 6 team have added some work for the children working at home.
For each day there will be a Maths, English and Project activity. Each day Maths will have two activities (one is easier). We do not expect the children to do both! Please watch the videos for each activity and complete it the best of your ability as you would in a usual lesson.
Each week, on Microsoft Teams, there is a guided reading (VIPERS) quiz as well as a mental maths quiz to be completed. In addition to this, each Friday an assignment will open for the week's English work to be submitted.
Below is the timetable which we will follow in school and you can follow at home:
8.30 - 9.15 - Spellings and Guided Reading
9.15 - 10.30 - Maths
10.30 - 10.45 - Break
10.45 - 11.45 - English
11.45 - 12.30 - Project Lesson
12.30 - 1.30 - Lunch
1.30 - 1.45 - DEAR time
1.45 - 2.50 - Project or English Lesson (continued)
2.50 - 3.00 - Watch Newsround to keep up to date with world events (click HERE to watch)!
The work provided mirrors the work that is being taught in school for our new Project "Hola Mexico".
It is important that your child completes as much as they can each day. There will be activities for English, Maths and Project.
We will be putting extra tasks on for the children should they wish to complete them, and these are optional.
There will be as many video inputs as we can manage whilst keeping the school running for key worker and vulnerable children; we know how important it is for the children to hear from us.
Please keep checking back as the work will be updated frequently. If you have any queries, questions or concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch via the year group email. This will be checked at least twice per day (AM before school and PM after school).
Lastly, please send in any work, videos, or photos of what you have been doing at home. Below you will find a home learning section where we will post your home learning activities!
We really do enjoy seeing what you are up to at home!
Thank you for your support at this time, it is always appreciated and we are here for you if you need us, just get in contact. The Year 6 email address is checked twice every day.
Mr Campbell, Mrs Owers and Miss Weller
If you require any of the Year 6 team you can email Year6@nyewood-jun.w-sussex.sch.uk
If you complete a reading book at home, here is the link to do your AR quiz!
If you have completed the daily learning activities and want additional tasks, then please use the BBC Bitesize website.
Well done for completing last week's challenge which was cooking; congratulations to Eva who cooked some delicious looking enchiladas (with plenty of cheese, yum!) and a Mexican desert 'soft tortilla boats' with fruit and ice cream! Mr Campbell will arrange a prize for you.
This week's challenge is something a bit different! Can you make your own traditional Mexican sombrero? You could model it out of card or paper or even out of fabric. Perhaps you could use an existing hat as the base and add to it? If you do not have the resources to make a hat, you could instead design a traditional sombrero on paper and send that in to us. As a starting point, look up 'traditional Mexican sombrero'; notice the beautiful patterns and style of hat and off you go!
The closing date is Thursday 11th February.
The Year 6 Team will pick a winner on Friday 12th February.
Good luck and have fun!
Times Table Rockstars

Our Bikeability sessions were booked for this half term, so they have been postponed. Although here are some excellent resources for you to look at.
If your child is unable to attend school due to having symptoms, or alternatively if a member of their household has symptoms, then I have created Home Learning Activities for their time off school.
This work should be completed at home and does not need to be brought into school. However, you can send photos or electronic copies to the Year 6 email address.
In Year 6, we have been thinking about Harvest and we have produced some fantastic work!
We wrote Harvest prayers, learnt some Harvest French and completed some Harvest Art work.
