HOLY WEEK

 

This week is the most important week in our faith - Holy Week - The week leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. Throughout this week, I will be setting you daily RE tasks, but as well as that, I will be setting you an Easter themed craft or baking activity each day. Some of these crafts may take longer than one day to complete. I will be choosing winners for all craft activities – good luck!

Monday 6th April

 

Watch this video on Palm Sunday using this link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zvxn34j

Think what it would have been like to be there on that day, welcoming Jesus into Jerusalem. For your task today, you are going to take on the role of a news reporter, standing in the crowds waiting for Jesus to come and then witnessing his arrival and celebrations.

 

Consider what the people in the crowd were saying, the sounds and sights of the event, how you felt, what Jesus was doing and saying etc.

 

I have set this task as a 2Do Mashcam. I’m looking forward to the wonderful work you create today.

 

Monday’s craft activity:

 

You can do this with your family if you wish. I would like you to begin to create an Easter garden. This can be done in a box, a plant pot, a bowl or whilst the weather is nice, you could create something in your own garden and photograph it. Below are some examples of Easter gardens.

 

Good luck with your tasks for today. Don’t forget to say your prayers – could you find the passage in the Bible all about Palm Sunday? Maybe read this to a member of your family.

Good morning Year 6,

 

How are you all today? I hope your diary is beginning to fill up after two weeks of home learning.

 

Have you said your prayers today? Be thankful for God’s wonderful world and all of the wonderful things and people in your life. Remember, this Sunday is Palm Sunday – why not make something to put in your window this weekend?

 

Our top scorers this week are:

TTRockstars – Jessica, Oliwia, Jay and Sebastian

Spelling Shed – Felix, Ronnie, Jessica and Jess

A special mention and well done to Julia, Imogen and Kamila for sending in some amazing work throughout the week. 

 

Your tasks for today:

 

Maths – As we would often do in school on a Friday, I have set you some arithmetic questions. As in class, give yourself 30minutes to complete this (use a timer on your phone/tablet/watch etc). I will post the answers this afternoon so you can check your score. Let me know on 2email what scores you get!

 

English – Your writing task this week is a colour poem! On PurpleMash, open today’s 2Do to find your instructions. I would like you to use a range of similes, alliteration, personification and metaphors. Remember to punctuate your poem correctly and remember to write in verses. Check any unknown words in a dictionary (or online dictionary). I can’t wait to read them!

 

Computing – I have set you two 2Do tasks where you need to debug the programs – can you work out where the mistakes have been made?

 

Well done for your hard work this week again. Have a lovely weekend with your families, stay safe.

Thursday 2nd April

Good morning everyone,

 

Who needs your prayers today? Think of those in need today when you are speaking to God.

 

Wake your body and mind up with a morning PE lesson before you begin your work. Have you been choosing dance, PE with Joe or something different? Why not think about the Yoga we have been doing in school and work on these exercises?

 

Begin your work-time with your reading book, spellings and times tables. I will share our top scorers again tomorrow – it’s a close contest!

 

Your tasks for today:

 

Maths – Below I have attached some reasoning problems for you to solve. These questions are similar to the ones we work on in our morning maths during registration. Please write our answers in your Home Learning books.

 

English – On PurpleMash, I have set you some work on ‘Serial Mash’. Read chapter 1 of ‘A Bridge on Fire’, then there is an online quiz for you to complete, along with some questions which I have attached below to be completed in your Home Learning book.

 

Science – As part of our ‘Light’ topic, I have attached two files below on light. One is a task to investigate shadows and the direction the shadows will go depending on the position of the sun. The other task if for you to make your own sundial. In the document, it explains how to do this. Please send photographs of your sundials in action!

 

Well done Year 6 – I am so pleased with your work!

 

Mrs Woods

I hope you are still entering into your diary every day – it will certainly make for an interesting read in the future!

 

Your tasks for today:

 

Maths – Please complete the maths puzzle below. Send me a 2email to tell me the highest score you can get. I will let you all know who found the highest! Good luck.

 

English – I have attached two documents below. One is a learning PowerPoint presentation on main and subordinate clauses. Please open this and read through it first. Then I would like you to complete the worksheet in your Home Learning book, by completing sentences using subordinate clauses.

 

Research Task – I would like you to research a famous inventor and his/her inventions – this could be an inventor of anything that is well-known and well-used. Once you have done your research, complete a slideshow about this person and their achievements (set as a 2Do on Purple Mash). 

I have also set a 2Do called 2Quiz. I would like you to design a quiz based on the research you have carried out. I will try your quizzes after I have read your slideshows and learnt about the inventors – will I get full marks?

 

Keep up your hard work – I am extremely proud of your determination and perseverance.

Then, I would like you to draw and explain the Stations of the Cross. Try to think creatively with your images – you could sketch, paint, create sculptures, freezeframes etc. Remember, any work you are particularly proud of and want to share, please take a photograph of it and email it to me on Purple Mash.
