Year 6 – Tuesday 21st April

Hello Fantastic Year 6!

Good morning lovely kiddywinks!

We hope you slept well and enjoyed your first day of our new topic yesterday.

Remember we are still at the end of an email, so please send across any photographs of your work as we would love to see as many pieces as possible :)

Miss P was working in school last week and took this lovely picture during her Golden Mile. The school grounds look beautiful, don’t you think?


Remember to stay positive and to continue to make the most of the wonderful sunshine! You are doing amazingly and we are all so very proud of you.

Don’t forget we are having our Zoom meetings tomorrow! We cannot wait to see you all :)


Mrs Silvester, Miss Pettitt and Mrs Chapman

Helpful Reminders

Don’t forget you can email us on We would love to hear from you if you have a question, need a password, need some help, want to show us your work or even just say hello! Please get your grown up’s permission before you email us. We look forward to hearing from you. We may not reply the same day!

Presentation – Please remember to do your very best work. Handwriting and presentation are as important at home as they are in school. You can complete your work in a book or if you need lined or squared paper you can get it here.

Note for parents: Hopefully your children will enjoy working through these activities and can do independently. We completely understand it may be difficult to complete all these tasks due to other family commitments or you are working from home, so please do not worry; complete what you can with your child.

Jae Malone, the author of ‘Silver Linings’ unfortunately could not visit us last month because of the Covid situation. However, she is incredibly keen to make sure we keep our imaginations fired and let our love of writing stories grow. Therefore, she has sent some fun ideas on how to create short stories. With these writing prompts you may be able to come up with a brand new story idea that no one else has ever thought of. You don’t have to write stories down, you may picture them in your mind or be a storyteller to members of your family.

 Grid – Haunting things                           Grid One – People and Creatures                              Seaside Columns

As well as these fun story creating ideas, she has set us an exciting challenge. If you would like to win a signed set of Jae Malone’s trilogy, then why not enter her creative writing competition?


All you have to do is send your completed Indiana story from last term. If you have already sent us uploaded photos of your completed story or sent it as a Word document, then all you have to do is ask us to submit it to Jae’s competition. If you didn’t send us your completed story, you have until 4th May to complete your story and send it to us. Remember to use the address for your entries.

Daily physical activity which you enjoy. Challenge yourself! Remember Joe Wicks is still there to keep us moving.


We hope yesterday’s Maths got your brain warmed up!
