Year 6

            HAPPY EASTER CLASS 6!

It's the Easter holidays. Yes, that means that you have 2 weeks off school to chill out at home, relax, slob in your PJs, do what you want when you want.....oh! That sounds weird now doesn't it?!

 

But nevertheless, it IS Easter time and therefore for the next couple of weeks, I am not going to be setting you daily English, Maths etc like I have been. Yay, I hear you cry! But I'll be bored, I hear you moan!

 

And for just that reason, I have created for you instead, an Easter Activity Menu with fun learning for you to choose from, to prevent boredom. Remember if you are bored, then YOU are being boring! ;-)

 

This is what the menu looks like:

 

   

You will find it attached below. Also attached are a few additional resources I've found that you may want to have a look at and use as you wish.

The usual daily home learning menu will resume from Monday 20th April.

 

I'd love you to keep emailing me to show me what activities you have chosen to do, along with anything else you have thought of to keep your brain and body busy, whilst staying safe.

 

I'm missing you all so much and thinking of you every day.  The last few weeks haven't been easy and we've been separated from each other. BUT, we are going through this together, and that will always bond us and no one will ever be able to take that bond away. 

 

You may have joined in with the clapping for the heroes that are playing their part in this Corona Virus crisis. But I think that EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU ARE HEROES. You are certainly MY heroes.  

 

You have dealt with this brilliantly and it hasn't been easy. You have carried on, you have been brave and you are playing a massive part in saving lives by being at home and keeping yourselves and others safe.

 

I just wanted to say that I am so proud and I think that each and every one of you is AMAZING:

 

Shaan, you are AMAZING! Gracie-Mai, you are AMAZING! Ella, you are AMAZING! Imogen, you are AMAZING! Max, you are AMAZING! Nathan, you are AMAZING! Jessica, you are AMAZING! Leo, you are AMAZING! Oliwia, you are AMAZING! Olivia, you are AMAZING! Savannah, you are AMAZING! Shelbie, you are AMAZING! Jack, you are AMAZING! Will, you are AMAZING! Nikita, you are AMAZING! Finley, you are AMAZING! Milly-Ann, you are AMAZING! Lewis, you are AMAZING! Ruby, you are AMAZING! Libby, you are AMAZING! Jesse, you are AMAZING! Kai, you are AMAZING! Miley, you are AMAZING! Harry, you are AMAZING! Roxie, you are AMAZING! Ava, you are AMAZING! Poppy, you are AMAZING! Guy, you are AMAZING! Isla, you are AMAZING! Josh, you are AMAZING! 

 

Enjoy Easter and have fun, remember the meaning behind it all, be good, be polite, be kind and eat LOADS of chocolate!

 

Happy Easter! Lots of love,

Pets' Corner! Ella has emailed me some photos of her very cute guinea pigs. I think our pets are certainly enjoying us spending all this time at home! Email me a photo of you with your pet (or just your pet if you want everyone to 'guess the pet owner') and I'll post it here!

Are you driving adults at home crazy by asking them all the time for things to eat, just because you're bored? If so, perhaps suggest Nathan's idea to them. Nathan gets 50p a day to spend at the 'Justice Snack Shop'. Healthier choices are cheaper and naughtier options are more pricey. It's up to him how he spends his money for snacks between meals and once he's spent up, that's it! Sounds like a great snack plan to me!

Purple Time Creative Craziness! I asked for it and I got it: Ella and Isla played games and made a Bucket List, Ava made a man-eating wheelie crocodile, Oliwia got creative with her seating arrangements and Savannah made her elderly neighbours smile by baking and delivering cakes and notes to make their day! Awesome, guys!

Are you still remembering to wash your hands as well as Tia is washing the boys?!

Read Harry's fab story...

 

TODAY’S STORY

Today's story will begin in the great town of Nottingham, where an aggressive dragon has been spotted soaring through the counties of England. Scientists have a rough idea of what this dragon looks like.

 

People have seen this dragon ranging from places like Dover to Manchester to Nottingham. At night people have said to have witnessed  load noises, which they said were like a predator's call.                           

 

In Leicester, two people have gone missing with no explanation; all that was left was a tooth on their bed - this is a true mystery.

 

Not only have people gone missing but farm animals have gone missing too. These include: sheep ; cows ; chickens ; pigs and more.  The farmers who own these animals have said that when they went to let the animals into the field, all that was left was a pile of guts and scarlet-coloured blood. The farmers were in shock and called 999 immediately. When the police arrived at the scene, the guts had vanished and so had the farmer. WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED?

 

Private investigators were called. Instantly the investigators found three vermilion glowing scales with scratch marks on them. The investigators took it to a lab but they couldn’t identify the anonymous species. Weeks went past with more people going missing but no creature was found. 

 

Until one day, when there was a cricket match, the fans were in the stands and the players were getting ready when … a prodigious dragon flew over everyone’s head. Whilst breathing atomic breath, it swiftly burned the cricket grounds to ashes and the same with the people. 

 

This was a true tragedy and now the British nation is hunting this supposed monster. However some people believe this formidable beast can be tamed. Today’s story will back tomorrow with the latest news on this blood curdling creature.

WELCOME TO YEAR 6 2019-20!

Year 6 is not for the faint-hearted! We have a jam-packed term ahead, full of fascinating learning topics to get our teeth into as well as many fun filled events. 

 

We are going to be getting to grips with drug education through DARE, celebrating the school bank's 4th birthday, and going on a week's residential to Rock UK, which will be shared in a family assembly.  We are going to once again be inviting parents and carers into school for a repeat of the very popular 'Plan it, teach it' morning, celebrating Harvest and Christmas at church and we might even have time to squeeze in a trip based on our Crime and Punishment topic! Phew! 

 

So tighten your seat belts, Year 6's of 2019/20 - it's going to be a thrilling ride!

 

Confetti!
