Today you need to finish your memory from Monday and complete the picture if you haven’t already.

We would like you to record yourself reading the memory. Use whatever type of device you have access to. If you cannot create a voice note only, then record your voice whilst the camera is pointed at your picture.

This recording and a photograph or scanned image of your picture needs to be sent to school@ctsmk.org.uk. Please make it clear it is for the Y6 leavers presentation. Everyone’s memory and recording, whether completed in school or at home, will be put together.

 

Maths

We are going to continue to follow the activities provided by White Rose. Remember, you need to watch the video on their website and download the resources from the links below. Today, you need to complete Summer Term Week 9 Lesson 4 (Volume of a cuboid).

Topic

Think about starting secondary school. Record your ideas in each section of the grid Starting secondary school including: the feelings you might experience, challenges you might face, opportunities that might arise, questions you might have, as well as where you might seek help or advice.

Transitioning to secondary school is a big life change. Even when someone is feeling positive about it, a big change can cause mixed feelings like excitement and worry. We thought about this last week. Today you will think about these kinds of feelings and the reasons behind them, and consider questions you have about starting secondary school.

 

Truth or myth

You may have heard lots about what secondary school is like. Sometimes this information is really helpful.

But sometimes it’s not, since it might be exaggerated, inaccurate or untrue.

Read the Truth or Myth? cards, and sort them into three piles: truth, myth, not sure.

Then have a look here at the answers with some explanations.

Does anything surprise you?

 

Where can I get information and help?

List where you can get information about secondary school. Include anything you think of.

Here is a possible list. How many match yours? For example, older brothers or sisters, neighbours with secondary-aged children, teachers, former pupils, online forums, school websites, school open-evenings.

Pick three you are think are most helpful and say why. Are there any you think are less helpful?

Look at the scenarios in the resource Where can you get answers?

Who would be the best person to speak to? Which would be the best place to get information? Use your list to help you.

 

Look back at your grid from the beginning. Is there anything you would like to add?

 

Make a list of top ten tips for starting secondary school. These could be short sentences or phrases to read at a glance and for easy recall. For example: if you’re lost, ask for directions; if you’re worried, speak to a teacher; set your alarm to wake you up earlier; make a timetable to manage homework.
