Star Times Tables
Welcome to Elder Class!
Welcome to Elder Class - the Year 6's of St. Mary's Bentworth! Amongst our class you will find the Head Boy and Head Girl, Church Council, Peer Mentors, Eco Warrior Leaders, School Council Leaders, Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, Digital Leader and the Heads of Music! These roles are special to Year 6, and help us show our 'belonging in action'.
Here are some useful links and information about a range of online resources that you may be asked to use by teachers as part of the home learning, or you might choose to use to extend in self-directed learning.
In light of proposed school closures, Twinkl is offering free premium accounts for schools and parents. When registering for the account use the discount code CVDTWINKLHELPS which will entitle you to a free months access to the resources on the site. Twinkl has a range of ready-made and downloadable resources. They have also put together School Closure packs for each year group which could be downloaded and printed as required.
GoNoodle is a series of web-based videos, games and activities focused on introducing short bursts of physical exercise. This includes guided dance, fitness workouts, yoga and mindfulness videos.
This is a free resource to use, and if choosing to sign up, children can collect points as they complete tasks to evolve their own GoNoodle champions.
The School Run
The School Run is a website which has great English, Maths and Science advice for parents. It has great videos which explain strategies and concepts that teachers may ask children to work on as part of their home learning. You can also sign up for worksheets and activities for each year group.
An online art resource developed by google, autodraw uses AI to guess what is being drawn and give options to replace with pre-loaded designs that can be adapted by children. This can be used to create digital illustrations.
Topmarks is a collection of online learning games. We often use a range of these games to consolidate learning in class, especially in Maths. Games can be filtered by age or theme for pupils to extend or consolidate learning that has been set by teachers. Hit the Button is also part of this website.
Times Tables Rock Stars
The children already have their logins to this website as it is used as part of our weekly homework. This allows children to test their times tables speed and accuracy across a range of different levels as they work to become a times tables rock star!
Welcome to Spring 2!
Our topic this half term is 'The Americas...what's the difference?' This topic has a focus on Geography where the children will be learning a range of knowledge and skills. They will be choosing a small area of either North or South America to research and will create a persuasive travel brochure about this area. We will also be learning about the Mayan Civilisation. For our topic outcome, we will be holding a 'Holiday Show' for the other classes near the end of the half term where the other children will vote for which place they have been persuaded to visit!
