Good Morning Year 6!

How are you all doing? We really hope you are all feeling well and happy. Remember, there’s only four more school days before our Easter break from studies. You can do this! Hope you have a great day of learning.

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. 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.

English and RE

Our RE concept for this half term is, ‘Salvation.’ In order to begin thinking about this and to further practise our story writing skills we will begin by looking at the Easter Story. Please read the beginning of this story up to and including the Last Supper before you carry out today’s writing tasks. 

 

History

The Maya civilisation was hugely popular for many, many hundreds of years. No one really knows the exact reason for their decline. Watch the short clip from BBC Bitesize and write a summary (taking no more than 30 minutes of your time). There are lots mor BBC short videos about the Maya civilisation which are great so if you are bored, why not watch a few more?

If we haven’t heard from you yet by email, please try to send us a little message today to let us know how you’re getting on. We will be trying to get in contact with any children we haven’t heard anything from early next week. We miss you all – that’s all it is!

Spelling Test

 In the back of your Home Book, please write today’s short date and title: Spelling test.

Ask someone in your house to test you on this week’s spellings – remember to get them to ask you the words in a random order and within a sentence to remind you of the meaning. 

Then you can mark them together. 

Art

In Maya mythology, the jaguar is seen as the ruler of the Underworld, and as such, a symbol of the night sun and darkness. They were, and still are, highly regarded and very significant animals to the Maya people. Use the following step by step guide to help you sketch a jaguar. You might like to practise this a few times until you have a final, neat sketch. You may then use pencils, or paint to add colour if you’d like to. Stick your final piece of artwork in your Home Book if you can. We look forward to seeing your artwork!
