Computing update: 22/04/2020

 

Embed understanding of programming, while using Variables and different Input/Output…

• A variable in programming is a container which holds a value. The name of the container is the variable. A great writing activity to do with this is ‘The Variable Adventure’. In it you write 6 different verbs, nouns, adjectives etc and then roll a dice to identify which one will be chosen. Write a simple story for example: My name is NOUN and I like to VERB NOUN at the weekends. My favourite animal is a ADVECTIVE NOUN. See how many different crazy stories you can create.

• Another game that incorporates music is Slap, Clap, Snap. It’s a simple race that gives you a chance to practice the concept of using variables to vary the actions of code. There are three variables: Slap (player slaps their thighs or table), Clap (player claps their hands) and Snap (player snaps their fingers). You assign values to each of these movement variables, and then the players work together to try to show those values to the rest of the group. Each of these movements takes a number that tells the player how many times to slap, clap, or snap. You can find more information here. https://minecraft.makecode.com/courses/csintro/variables/unplugged 

• An activity mentioned earlier is a great example of how Inputs and Outputs work. Someone becomes the Input – giving instructions verbally. Everyone else becomes the Output. The output needs a pencil and a piece of paper. The input thinks of instructions to draw a ‘crazy character’ for example: draw two ears, three eyes etc. The outputs will be the completed drawing. Now try to compare and see if you can improve the instructions. Some more information here https://www.barefootcomputing.org/resources/crazy-character-algorithms.

 

Don’t forget!

There are a huge selection of activities that can be completed on line to help practice these concepts if you want to get digital and creative. The sites are listed below. These are completely free and do not require registration (unless you wish to save). With Scratch Jr an app download is necessary. Don’t forget you also have your account with purple mash and education city where you can also find different activities and quizzes!

Welcome to Year 6!


The class teachers in this year group are: Mrs Silk, Mrs Scott, Mrs Loveridge and Ms Chapman. Other Adults could be Mrs McLaren, Miss Kauser, Mrs Khan, Mrs Kaur, Mrs Chevers, Mrs Begum. 

 

This is an important year for children in Year 6, as they gear up for SAT's tests and prepare for life after Primary School. SAT tests will be taking place from the week beginning Monday 11th May. It is VITAL that your child attends school this week and sits every test. If they are ill please bring them in at least until the test is completed. (These have been cancelled this year due to the COVID19 -coronavirus outbreak in the UK)

HOMEWORK! Your child will get Maths and English homework every Friday, to be completed by the following Tuesday.  They will also have spellings to learn. Each child has their own password for Reading Eggs, Education City and Purple Mash where they may have homework set. Your children may also access these sites to practice their Reading skills and enjoy educational games. We have purchased Reading Plus this year and all children are expected to read 5 books and complete a vocabulary task each week - this is closely monitored by teachers.)


Reading

Reading at Cape is very important and we send children home with a reading book, which should be read at home and discussed with parents. They can then be changed when completed in school. Children also have access to books weekly from the school library, which can be taken home and read. Children have a reading session with the class teacher and one with the class  LSP every week. Two or three reading plus sessions are timetabled each week so that children have the opportunity to complete part of this scheme in school time - the rest will need to be completed at home. 


P.E. Please make sure your child has their P.E. kit in school EVERYDAY. We have 2 PE sessions a week and there may be other occasions where P.E. kit is needed. 
Lunchtime Sports clubs - change every half term 


Our creative themes are:
Autumn and Spring:   Why did Anglo-Saxons and Vikings invade Britain?
Summer: What impact do Humans have on our world?
