Year 6 Learning Log Transition Task: Diary Entries

Write 5 diary entries of either something interesting that you have done during your time off school in Lockdown or write 5 diary entries of something you have done over the Summer Holidays.

The minimum expectation is 5 entries, maximum 8 entries. The diary entries must be a couple of paragraphs each with all of the grammatical features you have learnt about during your school journey so far. Please make sure you have remembered the basics: capital letters, full stops, commas etc.

These can either be emailed to be at my Year 3 address or submitted in September.

 

Year 6 Transition Task: Letter to Teacher

Due to the strange circumstances we find ourselves in, transition this year is going to be a little different. As a result, we will not have the opportunity to get together in Year 6 before the start of the new term, and get to know each other better on transition day.  Therefore, I would like you to write a letter to your new Year 6 teacher to introduce yourself so we can find out more about you.

In your letter, I would like you to provide some information about yourself, what you have been getting up to over the last few months and any hobbies and interests you have. You could also include any interesting facts about yourself and let us know about your family, friends and pets. Perhaps you are looking forward to doing something in the Summer holidays?

Your letter should be a couple of paragraphs long, each with all of the grammatical features you have learnt about during your school journey so far. Please make sure you have remembered the basics: capital letters, full stops, commas etc.

It can be typed up or written, the choice is yours! If you would like to email it to me so I can read over the summer then send it to me at my Year 3 email address.

 

Year 6 Transition Task: Hand art

As part of our Year 6 class displays, we would like to start the new school year with showing off some of your artwork on our walls. Therefore, we would like you to produce a piece of hand art that represents you as a person.

I have provided a hand template, but if you don’t have any access to a printer you can just draw round someone’s hand – the bigger the better. To decorate the hand, we would like you to include designs and illustrations that represent you as a person. For example, your favourite sports, food, hobbies, the music you listen to – anything that is meaningful to your life.

Your hand art should be completed to a Year 6 standard- with maximum care taken with design, drawing and colour so it can deservedly be put up on display.

I have included, some examples to give you an idea and to take inspiration from.

Key things to be practising, ready for Year 6 and things to think about over the summer:

Secure knowledge of your times tables: make sure you can recall them quickly and feel confident with them.

Practise your handwriting: we want neat, joined-up handwriting that is legible throughout Year 6.

Do plenty of reading: not just books- make sure you are reading newspapers, leaflets, poetry etc.

Getting plenty of fresh air: the more exercise you are doing, the healthier you become physically and mentally.

Becoming more independent/organised: Year 6 is all about you taking responsibility for your own learning/organisation- this is something that is also very important in high school and beyond.
