Welcome to Baker Street.
Monday 22nd February 2021
Welcome back, it's the start of a new half term. I hope you have all had a good rest.
A huge thank you for all of the good work that you did over the last six weeks. I have been really impressed by your resilience and commitment to attending live lessons and meetings.
Keep up the good work and remember to have breaks away from the computer screen too.
Hopefully, it won't be too long before we can all be back in class.

A new week and a new month. This week we will be participating in Children's Mental Health Week so many of our activities will be linked to this. Look out for cooking, outdoor art and a range of PSHE themed lessons. Children will also have a PSHE questionnaire set in their assignments. Please look out for this and click on the link to complete it.
You are all doing brilliantly in this extended time away from school. I am regularly receiving work from children and enjoying seeing you on our registration and Q & A meetings.
As always, parents and carers thank you for your continued support. During these challenging times, we all have to work together to ensure our children are supported in their learning and their mental well-being. If you need to contact me - don't forget that I am available to answer emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (Mon -Thurs).
Have a good week.

Take care and stay safe,

Welcome to a new week. Today all learning will be back on Teams, so please ensure that you log on and complete today's lessons.
You have: Maths, English, Spellings and Science.
Children are also expected to continue using TT Rockstars and read on a regular basis. In year 6, it is important to put aside 30 minutes each day for reading. Please let me know what you are currently enjoying, perhaps you may be able to recommend a book to the class?
Have a good week and let me know if you need any help.

Today we launch Teams for children's remote learning, both an exciting and nervous time! Using your login details, children will now be able to access their lessons online. In Baker Street there will be English and Maths lessons Monday - Thursday with afternoon lessons incorporating our Theme, Science, P.E, ICT and PSHE. On Fridays, there will be lessons for Art, Music, French and P.E. As you will see, sometimes future assignments have been added. Please ensure that your child only completes work set for that day as the lessons are chronological.
Today's lessons are:
Remember that children can still access TT Rockstars and need to quiz their reading books using Renaissance Reading.
Keep an eye on the CBBC channel (am) and BBC2 (pm) as there are many educational programmes on at the moment to support learning.
Remember that you can email me on email@example.com
Stay safe and good luck!

Hello Baker Street,
As another busy week begins, we find ourselves having to learn new skills. As from Wednesday, learning will take place using Teams - you will have received your login details and how to access the site. This is not only new to you, but new to teachers too! We shall learn and overcome teething problems together. Thank you in advance for your patience during this time. Your work will be set on Teams and you will be able to access video links - where I will be explaining tasks - also documents to help with your learning.
Up until Wednesday, I will set work on Purple Mash and on this page as we did last week.
If you need to contact me about work or other issues then the class email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Please note that I will be available Monday to Thursday, although one day a week I will be in school teaching key worker children. I will endeavour to get back to your emails as soon as possible.
Stay safe and good luck with Teams!
Don't forget to keep reading and doing Renaissance Reading quizzes.
Also TT Rockstars will help improve your speed and accuracy.
Tuesday 5th January 2021
I hope you had a restful festive period and that you are all well.
Due to the new restrictions, we are returning to remote learning. This week you will find links to the work that you have been set on our class page. I shall ensure that you have new work added each day. You will also find tasks set on Purple Mash for you to try. As always, if you have any questions or queries then you can contact me via Purple Mash email. I will be available Monday - Thursday each week, although once a week I will be in school teaching.
Good luck and stay safe.
Here are your tasks for Wednesday 6th, Thursday 7th and Friday 8th January.
Theme - The Victorians
Our theme for this term is The Victorians. There are two tasks we would like you to complete over the next three days:
1) Carry out some research about Queen Victoria using the following headings to help with this:
- Early life & childhood
- Early adulthood
- Married life & children
- Key events during her reign e.g. The Great Exhibition
- Later life
Make sure you record the notes in your own words and include as much detail as possible as we will be writing a biography of Queen Victoria over the coming weeks and these notes will be very useful. I have added links below to a couple of useful websites but there will be plenty of others.
The start of a new year usually encourages people to think about changes and improvements. Many people decide to make New Year's Resolutions. Have you got any resolutions for the year 2021? Have a think about some and let me know things that could be achievable and realistic for the year ahead. You can let me know through Purple Mash email!
Wednesday 25th November
Hello Baker Street,
I have added some work for you to do on Purple Mash. Remember to keep reading and practise your times tables (TT Rockstars). You could also continue some of your group work too.
Below there are folders of work for you to do at home. A great way to embed the skills already learnt in class!
Welcome to the new academic year. It's great to see children back at school. Like all of us, it probably feels strange for you and your child to be getting back into a proper routine again. Year 6 is an important year, so we will be working hard to help pupils plug any gaps in their learning and prepare them for secondary school. Please support your child by encouraging them to read regularly, practise their spellings and also complete home learning tasks as they are set.
If you need to contact me at any point throughout the year, please let the office know and I will get back to you.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
