Year 6 – Wednesday 22nd April

Good Morning Our Lovely Year 6 Children!

How can it be Wednesday already?! It’s going to be a good one though because our Zoom meetings are happening today and we are really excited! We cannot wait to see your happy faces soon. Don’t forget to have your pieces of paper ready for our quiz. You need to write ‘True’ on one side and ‘False’ on the other. If you’ve run out of paper, don’t worry – just use thumbs up or down instead. :D Fingers crossed for no technical issues! It might be a good idea to test Zoom to make sure it is working before we meet. Remember that you must have permission to be in the Zoom Room with us so we either need an email confirmation from your parents or they must be in the background at the beginning of the call :).

Miss Pettitt is still making the most of the sunshine! She’s been on lots of lovely walks and bike rides and has even managed to achieve her fastest 5k jog yet! She’s actually becoming quite competitive with herself – oh dear! But she is really proud of herself :) In the evenings, she’s been enjoying watching the most beautiful sunsets from her window. Look at this one:


What are you feeling proud of today? Miss Pettitt would love to hear your thoughts by email. Maybe you’ve completed a super exercise challenge too? Or you’re really getting the hang of the Maths work we are setting. Let her know!

Have another AMAZING day and we will see you soon via Zoom!
Remember – it’s a GREAT day to be HAPPY :)

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.


How are you getting on with Maths this week? Is the work we did in class on angles coming back to you?

Remember to complete Success in 7 first – Success in 7 week 1

Don’t forget to check your answers carefully using ICARE before you mark your work. Here are today’s answers: Wednesday answers Success in Seven

For your White Rose task today, we would like you to use Summer Term Week 1 Lesson 3. It’s all about Angles in a triangle – special cases. Please make sure you are on the correct lesson. Watch the video and pause it when it asks you to.

Here’s what the activity looks like:

Remember – Miss Goddard has her ‘Daily Maths Challenge’ page on the school website. Why not have a go? You can find today’s one if you click here.


Did you enjoy designing a new robot yesterday? If you thought that was good, today it gets even better! You now get the chance to begin advertising your new invention. We only want you to focus on the introduction today, so take it slowly and use the ideas on the PowerPoint to help you. Here are two example advertisements to help you: Two good examples 

The blue arrows show you where we would like you to get up to today, but it is worth reading each one through as a whole so you can a feel for this style of writing. Think of a snappy opening and some rhetorical questions that will really get your audience thinking – we cannot wait to see photographs!


You may fancy joining in with some music today. There is a Powerpoint below with some steps to learn a song. Listen to the song first and then learn the different parts. You can click on the sound buttons in the Powerpoint or click on the sound files below. Maybe if you’re feeling brave you might like to perform it to someone in your family to brighten up their day! 


The End!
