Wednesday 6th May 2020

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today is your last day of ‘normal’ school closure work as tomorrow, in honour of the 75th anniversary of VE Day, I will be providing a variety of special VE Day activities!


Your tasks for today are as follows…


Maths: add and subtract fractions

Continue to spend about 10 minutes working on your times tables on TTRS or hit the button in order to keep your fluency with them up.


When you have finished that, use the link below to find today’s lesson on adding and subtracting fractions. Don’t forget the rules here: you need the same denominator to add or subtract fractions, but the denominator doesn’t change. Work through the examples and then solve the questions on the pdf worksheets. The answers are provided for you to self-mark when you have completed the tasks.

English: relative clauses

Today’s English task involves you revising your knowledge of relative clauses. Follow the link below to complete the activities on this.

Well-being: Year 6 Bake Off!

To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, I have a challenge for you all should you wish to accept! I thought we could have a Year 6 Bake Off competition over the next week. If we were living in a world without COVID-19, it would have been SATs week next week... Some of you will be pleased it’s not and some of you will be disappointed. I feel a bit of both: it’s a very stressful week as a Year 6 teacher as there are lots of rules and procedures to follow, pupils (and parents!) can often be anxious and of course I always want my pupils to do the best I know they are capable of; however, I am disappointed that you won’t get the chance to smash the SATs tests as I know you all would have! You are all aware of the massive amounts of progress you have made with things like arithmetic and reading tests over the course of the year so far and I am so proud of you all for your hard work on those while we were in school. No matter what your thoughts are on not having to sit the tests next week, I thought we should mark the occasion with something special…and what could be better than baking (and eating!) cakes?! I will join in too, but I have a feeling I will be beaten by you guys!


If you want to participate in the Year 6 Bake Off competition, then all you have to do is…

  1. Decide what sweet treat you want to bake at home (think carefully here because I know that flour is tricky to get hold of at the moment – you might need to think about what ingredients you have already/can get hold of during a scheduled shopping trip) and keep it a secret from any of your peers – you don’t want them stealing your ideas! 
  2. Bake your cake/sweet
  3. Send me two photos via the Cloverlea Info email address: one should be a photo that includes only what you have made and one should be a photo of you holding your competition entry. I need both photos because I will be sending photos to staff in order to judge the competition and I would like it to be anonymous. Please send me your entries by 11am on Thursday 14th May. I will ask staff to judge their top 3 bakes and will announce the winners on Monday 18th May.


There will be prizes for the top 3! Have you got what it takes to be a star baker?!



Your topic tasks for this week…

Please remember to keep working on the chilli challenge tasks based on the science topic of the heart and circulatory system. I am so impressed with how many of you are braving the challenge of dissecting a heart in order to see what it is likely to look like when inside our bodies – very brave of you and hopefully you agree it is very interesting to see a real version as well as the online images and diagrams. If dissection is not for you, then please don’t worry. There are plenty of tasks for you to get on with too that aren’t as gory!



Keep on working hard whilst at home and stay safe.
