Good morning everyone!
I hope you all have all had a lovely long bank holiday weekend, even though it felt very unlike a bank holiday weekend and very unlike Easter! Did you get lots of yummy Easter eggs?! I hope you did! I’ve kept myself busy this weekend by baking some Mini Eggs cookies, redecorating at my new house and of course eating Easter eggs!
I’m so glad it’s been such nice weather too, however our new garden is very overgrown so that’s a job for over the next few weeks… I like Rhys’ idea of doing his Joe Wicks workout in the garden – great work!!
I hope you’re all still feeling ok and that you’re making the most of the extra time you have with your families. We should be back in school today for the start of our last term of the year, and the last of your primary school days. Hopefully we will be able to get back in soon and enjoy the end of the year as you deserve, but for now I will continue to provide you with work online.
Your tasks for today are as follows…
Continue to spend about 10 minutes every day working on your times tables on TTRS or hit the button in order to keep your fluency with them up.
English: spellings and writing task
Continue working on your spellings as needed. Ask a parent or older sibling to test you on a random 20 spellings if you feel you don’t need much work on them and see if you are able to spell them all correctly.
In addition, please complete the writing task I have linked below. Read the first line of a story and continue it. Remember to use all the features of writing we have worked on during our time in Year 6: figurative language (similes, metaphors, alliteration, onomatopoeia, personification), a range of punctuation, a variety of sentence types and conjunctions and dialogue that is punctuated correctly. Don’t worry about printing the sheet, you can just write in your home learning book or on a computer. Follow the instructions at the side of the page and make sure your writing is as good as it would be at school! Share your writing with a parent later today and see what they think!
Well-being: draw or colour
To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, I would like you to take some time out to spend drawing or colouring in. Don’t try and do it while doing anything else – get completely lost in the activity and let your mind escape from reality! If you have a printer, I have linked some mindfulness colouring, but you might want to draw your own images instead.
Your topic tasks for this week…
We were due to start a new history topic after the Easter holiday: Vikings and Anglo Saxons. Have a look at the new chilli challenges for this topic and start to work on them. If you have any other questions about this topic, do complete your own research to find out the answers too. I’d love to see your work or hear an update from you via email!
Don’t forget to keep up your work with Joe Wicks or another form of exercise of your choice if possible. Keeping active and healthy will be the best way to fight off the virus.
I hope you and your families are all staying well and that you are able to stay as positive as possible during these difficult times.
