There are some ideas of materials you could use on the template attached below. Also, please see attached the knowledge organiser of concepts the children will cover and need to know for our science topic. 

Some ideas of what you could try:

  • What happens to an egg when you cook it?
  • What happens to water when it is boiled?
  • Can these changes be reversed?
  • Make sure you have permission from your adult to do this. Don’t forget to take some photographs of you investigating and email them to me. Get creative and have fun! Please see the attached sheet for more information about your research project.

Creating tension in the build-up of The Star Bearer.

Good afternoon Year 6,

Below is the build-up in the myth we have been learning about in English. Your task is to try and build tension by including the suspenseful techniques that we learnt about this week (please see the checklist on the page attached to this message) You are expected to write at least half a page of work.

The world was completely still. Nothing moved, not a leaf quivered, but over the silence brooded a ghostly calm and the whisper of his smoking breath as it rose in gasps and lingered in the frosty air.

Have a lovely weekend!

Weekend Homework - 09.10.20

Due Date: Monday 12th October 2020

Good afternoon year 6,

Black History Month

Next week we will be celebrating Black History Month at school. We have been very interested in the history of the slave trade in Britain, and have been having lots of discussions in class. Complete the reading comprehension - 'The Transatlantic Slave Trade'. We will mark it together next week. Miss Hulands has given you a copy to take home. It can also be found attached below.

Also, remember you can participate in our Black History Month competition. Find out more in the document below!

Mental Health Awareness Day

On Thursday, Mrs Waine led an assembly based on Mental Health Day. We looked at all the ways we can look after our mental health. Mrs Waine would like children to think of different things they could do to help them feel calm and ready to learn. You could send a picture to office@stmaryangels.co.uk of your child's activities. This could be them reading, going for a walk or playing a board game. 

Returning reading books

Books can be changed every Monday and must be returned on Thursday so that they can be 'quarantined' in a separate box for three days. Children's reading records should be signed daily to show they have read at home. Remember, 15-20 minutes a day can make a BIG difference to children's confidence in reading. Children can choose which book they want to read according to their reading level. 

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Hulands

Homework - Friday 11th September 2020

Due Date: Monday 14th September 2020

Hi Year 6,

This weekend I would like you to check that your log-ins still work for Bug Club and Mathletics. In the future I will be setting tasks for you. This weekend I would like you to:

1. Log in to Bug Club and read some books of your choice. Have a go answering the comprehension questions that go with them (click on the bug picture on each page). Don't forget that you can also play spelling and grammar games on Bug Club!

2. Log in to Mathletics and play some fun maths games 

If you have any issues with your log-ins, please let me know on Monday and I will fix it for you.

EXTRA CHALLENGE: Choose your favourite book and tell us why you recommend it to the class. Share your review with the class on Monday! 

Have a great weekend!

Miss Hulands
