Good morning again!  Have you noticed all the rainbows on the site's main page?  Hooray!


We were wowed by the work that was being sent in yesterday.  Just a few of the poems are below!




Day 2 of your 2-week-long writing project.  Check out the workbook here:


Today, take a look at pages 7-8 ("Idioms").  Some year 6s find them pretty tricky so be sure to ask your parents/carers and anyone else around the house what idioms they know.  Some might surprise you!




Great work yesterday BUT... one common mistake!  Have a look below...



More revision today... this time have a look at Summer Week 1, Lesson 2: Angles in a Triangle!





In a few short months you'll be heading off to your secondary schools and you will need to remember all your science from primary school.  However, unlike with spelling or arithmetic which you practise all the time, science is a very varied subject with lots of different topics.  Some of these topics you might not have studied for years!


That's why one of the projects we always undertake in year 6 is to revise all the science learning you've completed in Key Stage 2 so that we're super confident that you're prepared for the next step.  Therefore twice a week for the next few weeks, we're going to set some quiz questions on different topics.


This is a great time to think back on your learning.  If you studied it in year 6, look back at your knowledge sheets.  Do you have your old books as well?


Today's topic is Plants. Use as much precise scientific language as possible in your answers!


  1. What does the stem of a plant do?
  2. What are three ways that fruit and seeds can be scattered?
  3. What does the sepal of a flower do? 
  4. Why are the roots of a plant important?
  5. What are the male and female parts of a plant called?
  6. What attracts insects to flowers?
  7. What is photosynthesis?
  8. Does water go in at the roots and up the stem or in through the leaves and down the stem?
  9. What is the difference between polliantion and fertilisation?
  10. Which of these are non-flowering plants: garden shrubs, coniferous trees, moss, algae.




Check out these pieces of door artwork by DM and DB which make really effective use of colour to draw the eye:




We've also had a superb creative response from people to yesterday's English challenge.  Have a look at the video archive to see Mr Reynolds reading just a few of the poems that were sent in:
