Welcome to your final term at Kingsnorth, Year 6! We are really looking forward to seeing those of you who will be returning to school over the coming weeks, and will continue to be thinking of those of you who will be remaining at home.
From the week beginning 8th June, to support you with your transition to secondary school, we are going to be setting a weekly set of activities that you will need to complete. It is really important that you complete all of these tasks, as they will cover basic skills you will need in Year 7 and beyond. The aim is also to help you develop your organisational skills and independence, as you will need to manage your time throughout the week.
Once a week, you will need to email us your writing task. This could be a photo of the completed work, or you may prefer to send it to us in a typed format. You will also be completing a daily White Rose Maths lesson and topic work. When you send us your weekly email, please write some sentences telling us how you got on with these. Because these activities are part of your transition process and therefore very important, if we do not hear from you a member of school staff will contact you to see if we can support you.
If you have any concerns or worries or just want to talk to us, please email us at email@example.com

Under the Sea
Working Together to Save Our Oceans -The BBC programme Blue Planet 2 sparked an outcry about the health of our oceans and the huge threat caused by plastics, but lots of people around the world are working hard to help solve this problem. Direct your child to read about Madison Edwards, a 12 year old environmental activist. Encourage them to do their bit to help preserve our oceans by asking them to keep a ‘plastic diary’ recording how much single-use plastic the family uses. Ask them to write down one thing that the family will do to use less plastic.
Pirates: Daring Figures of History or Brutal Sea-Thieves?- Many books have been written and movies made about pirates. But who were the real pirates of the past? Direct your child to explore these facts about real pirates from history. They could create a fact file or information report about what they have learned, including key dates and figures. Alternatively, they could create a ‘wanted’ poster for a pirate, including facts about his/her deeds and adventures.
