We hope you are all well and enjoying the beginning of your Easter holidays so far. Are you counting down the days to getting some Easter eggs? 

We have added a few extra activities to today’s post. Remember you can check back through yesterday’s post if you didn’t have a chance to look yesterday. There’s nothing here you have to do. It is all just a bit of fun.

Have a lovely day!

Some Easter Holidays Activities

 

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 hoola hoop – how many twirls around your waist can you do before it falls?

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. 

Some colouring-in fun

You will need a printer for this activity. There are seven different sheets so choose the one you want before printing.

Try to create a Kevin the monster – thank you Lexie for this great idea.

 

Easter Bake Off

How many of you have tried making the bunny pancakes on Monday’s page? We’d love to know how they turned out.

Here’s another baking project you could try. Remember to work with an adult when baking.

Easter Maths Fun

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

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.

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.

Easter-story-word-search

Jokes of the Day

  • Christmas does come before Easter in one place—but where? The dictionary!
  • What’s the best way to make Easter easier? Put an “i” where the “t” is.
  • How does Easter end? With an “R”!
  • Where does Easter take place every year? Where eggs marks the spot!
  • How can you make Easter preparations go faster? Use the eggs-press lane!
  • What should you do to prepare for all the Easter treats? Eggs-ercise!
  • What kind of jewelry is the best Easter gift? A 14-carrot gold necklace.
  • What kind of bean can’t grow in a garden? A jelly bean.
  • What happens if you get married on Easter? You live hoppily ever after.

Year 6 – Friday, 3rd April

Good Morning to our Super-duper Year 6!

Well Year 6 we have made it through to the last day of two very strange weeks of learning from home. A massive well done to everyone who has been following the daily lessons and just trying their best. We couldn’t be more proud of you. One last big effort today please from us all and then we can put our feet up and watch movies for the Easter holidays.

Over the Easter holidays, we will be posting a daily greeting and for those of you who may be a little bored one day, there will be some ideas of activities you can do at home. For those who just want to watch movies and play with your Lego and games, go for it. This is what holidays are all about,

We wish all our families a very Happy Easter and hope you get to share special times together. 

Mrs Silvester, Miss Pettitt and Mrs Chapman 

Helpful Reminders

Don’t forget you can email us on year6@stmarksce.org.uk. 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. 

Ongoing Daily Activities

As well as the learning tasks we upload each day, there are a few ‘extras’ that you could have a go at, if you get time.

TTRockstars – Play 5 garage games + 5 studio games. Mrs Chapman will be online at 11am today in the Year 6 Arena area provided the website is running properly. Her TT Rockstar name is Zander Madden and will play games in the Wembley Stadium area. 
Reading – Read for at least 20 minutes every day.
Weekly spellings – Practise these everyday in your spelling booklets – your new weekly sheet will be uploaded each Monday. Please notice that number 9 on the main spelling sheet has changed by having the prefix ‘dis’ added as the original sheet had the word ‘honest’ appear twice.

Daily physical activity of some sort – it’s great to hear so many of you are getting energetic with Joe each morning. This is a great way to stay fit and wake up your brain.

Maths

Today’s answers for Success in Seven are here Friday’s Success in 7 answers

For your main maths lesson today, we would like you all to watch the video about scale factors – Week 1 Lesson 5. This is all about how many times bigger or smaller a shape has been made in maths.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

You should all be able to have a go at answering questions 1, 2 and 3. 

If you want to go further and challenge yourself with the second page of questions 4, 5. 6 and 7 then please have a go – but it’s not expected. For question 4 there are no answers and it will be tricky to do without printing the sheet. For question 6 you will have to multiply by one and a half. Remember to do this, first find one group of the number, then find half a group of that number and finally add those two answers to give you one and a half times the number e.g. 30 x 1 1/2 = one group of 30  plus 1/2 a group of 30 = 30 + 15 =45

 

English

Remember today is your spelling test day. Have a revision session before asking to be tested by someone at home. Send us a photo of your results to get a recognition point.

That’s it for English today as your RE lesson will take quite a bit of time.

Religious Education

We are going to link the story of Easter with the idea of salvation today and also look at how Christians mark the special days of Good Friday, when Jesus was crucified, and Easter Sunday, when he rose again.

Follow the PowerPoint below. There is a lot to read and discuss (or just think about if there’s no one to join you in a discussion). You will only need to record (neatly please) in your books in response to Challenge 2. Have a ruler ready to divide your page down the middle. 

The End!

Maths

Answers to today’s success in seven can be downloaded here: Thursday’s Success in 7 answers

For your maths learning today, as well as completing Thursday’s success in seven, we also want you to open the home learning page for White Rose Maths and complete Lesson 4 of Week 1. Please watch the video first until it asks you to pause it and complete Q1 through to Q6. Check your answers so far.  Continue video to the end which will allow you to complete the rest of the task successfully. You don’t need to print it out; you can just answer each question in your maths book. If you have permission, you can print it out if you would prefer to answer on the worksheet. Once you’ve completed the rest of the work on the task sheet, open the answer sheet online and check your answers. The final question is again very tricky so don’t get fed up if it doesn’t make sense at first. Have a look at the answer sheet with the workings – the drawing of the bar model will help you and hopefully it’ll make sense.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ 

Remember, you can watch the video as many times as you like. Sometimes, we have to watch things several times before we fully understand. By the end of this lesson you should be able to read , write and solve ratio problems.

Make sure you are on the correct lesson – see image below.

 

 

English

Today is the final session to complete our Easter story retelling. We will pick up the story at the part where Jesus’ body was taken to the tomb following his crucifixion. 

Remember the example write is here to help you The Easter Story – part 4 

Computing.

In today’s lesson, you will get a chance to use an Excel program. This is a great program to organise data. If you don’t have Excel on your home device, just read the PowerPoint below and hopefully some of it will make sense. You will get a further chances to use Excel in school throughout your secondary education.

If you can’t access Excel, once you have read the two PowerPoints, why not use this time to catch up on any unfinished work or practise this week’s spelling list.

The End!
