Year 6 – Monday 6th April – Easter Holiday

Hello Year 6 and welcome to our Easter break!

We hope you all enjoyed your weekends. You worked so very hard last term, making your teachers and family incredibly proud of you. Well done! Now it’s time for a little bit of rest and relaxation.

For those of you who have woken up bright and early and are already twiddling their thumbs, we have found some activities that you might like to do at home for fun. If you have a great activity idea that you would like to share with other Year 6 children, just send us the details in an email to year6@stmarksce.org.uk and we will try to add it to our webpage. We hope to change our page daily with some new ideas.

Have a great day today and we all hope this is the start of a very happy Easter holiday for you and your families.

Some Fun Activities – Part 1


Daily physical activity of some sort is still very important (and can be fun too!) so make sure you get your body moving at some point today. Go out on your bike with a family member, a lovely springtime walk or some PE exercises in the lounge or garden. Some of you might have a trampoline – tell us what you can do on it.

Mrs Silvester is still up for a times table battle on TT Rockstars – she will be in the Year 6 Arena every day at 11am if you fancy joining her. Her Rockstars name is Harmony Powers. 

Check out this link to read the National Geographic Kids magazine online for free. There’s a great article about jaguars!

Some colouring-in fun

Unfortunately, you will need a printer and some colours to complete this activity. However, we know how resourceful and creative many of you are so you could just use these ideas as a stimulus for making your own drawings. Do not print the whole document – just the black and white version of the one you want to colour. You’ll waste of lot of your printer ink otherwise.

4. Modern art rabbit and egg

Try to create a 3D effect in your drawings

Do not print this. Just have a look at how the lines have been created and have a go at reproducing this idea. You can use any colour when you colour it in. I have had a go at drawing one and you can see the order I followed by watching the YouTube video at the end of this post. We’d love you to send us a photo if you manage to do this one.

Yummy Healthy Pancakes

This link will take you to the BBC Good Food site and they have a great recipe for pancakes to make them a little healthier by adding some wholemeal flour as well as white flour. Remember from our learning on healthy eating that fibre is really important in a healthy diet. Well, whole wheatmeal has more fibre than white flour. It you don’t have whole wheat flour, you can just use your regular pancake mix. I just thought the pancake bunny was a really fun idea to get busy with and become a master baker.

Remember, you must have adult help to supervise your baking. Keep safe!

Why not make some special Easter bunny pancakes

Easter Maths Fun

For all you budding mathematicians, there will be some maths tasks you can get involved with each day.

Task 1 – Find an everyday object you have at home. Use this as your measuring unit and do lots of exploring with it. For example, I took a tin of tomatoes (one of those very rare items in supermarkets these day) and measured it. It was 11 cms tall and weighed 456g. Then I discovered I was a little taller than 14 cans and a little shorter than 15 cans. I also discovered I weighed about 139 tins of tomatoes. (Yikes! Better hold off some of that Easter chocolate).

What can you find out and how will you discover your answers. I don’t have 14 tins of tomatoes so I didn’t find out my answers by stacking them up. What do you think I did to find out these facts?

Task 2 – Try this emoji puzzle – there are three levels so go straight to the last sheet if you are a maths whizz. You could even try creating some of your own emoji maths problems for someone in your family to solve.

Writer’s corner

Why not be creative and think of a Spring or Easter themed poem? They could be acrostic or rhyming. They could be beautifully descriptive or they could be really silly. Have some fun and let your imagination run wild.

For those who love a word search here’s one with an Easter story theme. Only print page one.

Jokes of the Day

Year 5 – Monday 6th April – Easter Holiday

Good Morning Year 5!

Welcome to your Easter Break, I bet you all are ready for some rest and relaxation. Since Christmas you have worked really hard, both at school and at home, making your teachers and family extremely proud of you. Well done!

Although this holiday may come with some disappointments of missed holidays or feelings of frustration about not being able to see your friends and family, try not to let it get you down. Remember to try and stay positive (even when it’s tricky) and think about the wide range of things you can do at home to keep you entertained.

We know that it can be tricky to think of things to do when you’re stuck at home so we wanted to help. We have found some activities that you might like to do at home for fun. Below we have listed some of the different ideas of activities that could be fun to do throughout the holiday. We will give you some ideas today, and then some more next Tuesday. This will replace the daily jobs we will set you. You do not have to complete them, but it is completely up to you whether you want to complete them or not.

If you have a great activity idea that you would like to share with other Year 5 children, just send us the details in an email to year5@stmarksce.org.uk and we will try to add it to our webpage. We would also love to see what you get up to, so please get in touch and share with us.

At the very bottom of this webpage, there is a leaflet linking to wellbeing, which you or your parents might want to take a look at at some point.

Well done to those children who contributed to our fantastic victory against the Year 4s on TT Rockstars. There were 22 children who helped towards our fantastic victory – so a massive thank you to those children.

Have a great day today and we all hope this is the start of a very happy Easter holiday for you and your families.

Easter Fun Activities

Below is a list of things you and your family may want to do, but remember that they are optional,

  1. Baking – If you have the ingredients, why not have a go at baking an Easter Cake, some pancakes or the well loved cornflake cakes.
  2. Design your own egg – Draw an egg on paper or decorate a hard boiled egg using coloured pens.
  3. Egg and Spoon Race – Why not use hard boiled eggs or Easter eggs to have an egg and spoon race.
  4. Making an Easter card – Why not then send it to a family or an old peoples home. Cards are a good way to make people smile.
  5. Have an Easter Egg Hunt – If you don’t have Easter Eggs, why not draw some and then hide them around the house and garden for you or your family to find. 
  6. Set up an obstacle course – In your home or garden, why not create an obstacle course and time yourself and your family and see who can get the quickest time
  7. Create some Eater jokes

English/Art

We have been so impressed with your Millions stories, you all worked extremely hard and your stories are fantastic.

So today, we are going to give you the chance to design your own front cover for your story. 

Front covers show the main parts of the story and the main characters. Think carefully about your story and what you could use from it to put on your front cover.

Miss T has done an example front cover for you, unfortunately she didn’t have any coloured pens or pencils, so hopefully yours will be a lot more colourful than hers.

Once you have finished them, please send us a copy. We love seeing your work!!!

Science

Today we are going to finish our learning on Forces. We are going to learn about levers, gears and pulleys.

Read through the PowerPoint and watch the different videos on the links.

Year 5 – Thursday 2nd April

Good Morning Year 5!

We hope you didn’t pull too many April Fool jokes on your family yesterday. 

Well done for finishing your Millions stories yesterday. Thank you so much to those children who have sent them over for us to read. We have really enjoyed them and are really impressed with what we have read so far. We can’t wait to read more so please keep sending them in to the year 5 email.

We have something exciting to tell you about. Us Year 5 teachers have been really missing you all recently so we thought that we would like to get as many of us together as possible. Therefore, we are planning class video chats soon with as many members of each class as we can. This will be using an app called Zoom. 5GP are going to have a Zoom video call tomorrow at 11am and 5T will have a video call tomorrow at 3pm. 5F will be very soon, but we don’t have a set time yet. We will email your parents the details of how to log in for the chat. If we have time we will try and do a true or false European Countries quiz. For this you will need a piece of paper with true written on one side and false written on the other. We are really looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

We really hope you can join us for these catch ups, and we will make sure to plan a 5F catch up soon. Keep up the hard work.

Today you are going to be writing a book review for the story Millions. Below is a format that you may want to use. However, you can use whatever format you would like, handwritten or printed, but it has to include:

  • Describe the main characters
  • What happened in the story
  • Your favourite part
  • What could be better about the story
  • Is there any similarities to any other books?
  • Who is this book suitable for? (age or gender)
