Monday 18th May 2020

Welcome back year 6!  We're still collecting magazine features and nesidential write-ups... more on these in a second.  We thought you might like to read this fabulous one from 7HRY_PTR: if only it were true.  Riding on a  unicorn sounds so much more fun than travelling in a hot, stuffy coach!

 

Meanwhile, let's look at your English and Maths:

 

ENGLISH

This week's project is all about gadgets.  Have a go at the codebreaking warm-ups on pages 2-3 then have a careful read of the model text on page 4.  Finally, try the vocabulary activity on page 5.

 

MATHS

First watch the video and then try the activities linked at the bottom of the page.

Back by popular demand, the problem solving challenges of the week.  See how far you can get over the course of the week:

PSHE

You've done not-quite-tests and a not-quite-residential but one popular year 6 tradition is running fete stalls at the Summer Fete.  We've been thinking and discussing with some of you (thanks to DancingUnicorn77 and Ixumabee for contributing some ideas) and we're going to try and do our own VIRTUAL Summer Fete stalls.

 

How will this work?  Well, during fete week we will put up your online stall videos/content.  Not everything will work online but some things will.  Some ideas:

- Create a how-to video showing a dance move, a talent or even a cooking recipe.

- Create an online game using Scratch, like TheDoctorofScratch's marvellously creative projects: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/342061210/

- Run a guess-how-many sweets in the jar competition

- Create a colouring page, a quiz, a crossword puzzle, a word search or a riddle.

- Do a challenge such as crocheting (see the video below!!), laps around the garden, keepy-uppys.

 

Or perhaps more creative things we haven't considered yet!  You can work independently or, if you're happy and able to collaborate with friends in a small group, get in contact with each other and mind map some ideas.

 

You will need to:

- Think of an idea

- Think of a Virtual Stall name

- Decide what equipment if any you need (obviously you will need to speak to parents/carers to make sure it's practical under current circumstances!)

- Drop us an email so we know the details.

 

Although individual stalls won't earn money, we will include a donations button so your efforts can support the Love Musgrove campaign.

 

We look forward to hearing from you.

 

AND FINALLY...

Last week we mentioned that Miss Nettlefold would be crocheting rainbow coloured gloves while listening to Harry Potter.  Well...

Miss Nettlefold Takes Up the Challenge!
