Good morning Year 6.  It is fantastic to see how much work you have been doing at home.  It really makes us proud to see you so dedicated but also your focus to keep learning.  You are all becoming so independent as well to your home learning; this is such a vital school for September and Year 7.  We hope that you are managing the timetable yourself - another key Year 7 skill! 

STOP PRESS - We have also sent an email with regard to collecting the 2020 Hoodies - please remind your grown ups at home to check their emails that give the information about this.

2. Write a diary entry as one of the characters from one of the Just So stories
Additional challenge.

3. Write the same diary entry written as a different character for the same
story – think about how this viewpoint is different.

History - new topic

Today we begin our new topic on the Mayan Civilisation.  Today's home learning introduces you to the topic, helps you to develop a mind map of what you are beginning to learn about them and also to introduce you to some artefacts that may give some clues to what they were like as a civilisation and group of people.  Over the next few weeks we will be looking at:

  • who they were
  • lifestyle including food, clothing and pastimes 
  • skills and talents
  • religion and worship
  • their contributions to the world today


Activities today

1. Go through/ read/ take notes on the powerpoint: ‘L1.Introduction to the Mayans.’
2. When you get to slide 8, watch: then
complete the mind map activity.
3. Activity task on Slide 9: what do you think these artefacts are,how do you think they were used and why do you think this is what they are? Review answers and self-evaluate.

Tuesday 28th April

Good morning Year 6. Just a quick hello today - we will all be indoors today as we have some welcome rain for the gardens!  Thank for those of you who have already said hello to us this week - great that you have started the week well.  We knew that the science activity would be a popular one!  Today's home learning in English and Science continues from yesterday and maths is Mathletics and Rockstars.  There is a grammar powerpoint and game for you to make and play today so hopefully you'll find some time to do this.  Have a good day and take care.

Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories - How the Camel Got His Hump

Monday 27th April

Good morning Parents and Year 6.  We hope that you had a good weekend and enjoyed the amazing weather.  It was a perfect opportunity to be outside in our gardens and outdoor spaces as well as taking a walk, cycle or run.  Maybe you have some of your meals outside - a real treat.  It looks like it is going to be a bit cooler this week but still remember to get outside and exercise.


We hope that you received our emails with work sent to you on Friday evening but we had a few technical challenges and some files be sent.  However, all you need is on the website or we have amended on the website so please read the notes each day.  There were problems with a video clip so Mrs Swanwick is going to complete a mind/concept  map for the Just So Story and upload instead of the clip.


Remember that the green box tasks are the ones that we would like you to try and that the blue box tasks are optional BUT as we always say, just do what you can.


If you haven't done already, please drop us an email to let us know how you are.


Ongoing tasks for the week:

  • Bug Club reading - if you completed the book last week you will be allocated a new book but if not, complete the one that you are currently reading and have a go at the questions
  • Update your reading diary or keep a general log of your reading if you lft your reading diary at school
