Year 6- Thursday 23rd April

Good Morning Super Year 6!

Good Morning Year 6. Haven’t we been lucky AGAIN with the weather this week?

We loved seeing you on Zoom yesterday – you have brought such smiles to the teachers faces and have made us feel great! We enjoyed meeting some of your pets too. We were glad it went well and hope you enjoyed our little quiz. Let us know if you have any good ideas for things we could try next time. We will arrange another class Zoom in a few weeks time :)

I hope that you’ve managed to get outside even if it’s just in the garden or maybe you’ve been for a short walk with your family. I have spotted so many beautiful flowers growing which I don’t always notice when I’m rushing about. Here are some pictures of some of the flowers that I have seen this week. Maybe you’ve taken some pictures of some of the things that you’ve spotted in your garden or on your walks. We’d love to see them!

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.
