Friday 4th December

 

We have absolutely loved finding out all about the Titanic over the last couple of weeks and the children have written their own non-chronological reports about the disaster. They also created some beautiful bits of artwork this afternoon, showcasing their understanding of perspective (look out for photos of these at the end of term!).

 

To celebrate our learning of this area, we would like to set a special homework, in which the children will create a 'shoebox room' for our Titanic display. Each child has been given a room to create, such as the boiler room, the kitchen, a restaurant or a bedroom and you can be as imaginative as you like! We have included some photographs below to give you some inspiration and we can't wait to see what you come up with!

 

Please send in your finished rooms by Friday 18th December, so that we can get our display board created for the New Year.

Friday 13th November

 

In school this week, we have been learning about Robert Falcon Scott and his race to the South Pole against Roald Amundsen. 

 

For homework, we would like you to research another explorer and create a poster or fact file about them. You could choose another polar explorer such as Ernest Shackleton, or you might want to choose someone who explored other parts of the world, such as Christopher Columbus - the choice is yours! We will provide you with a sheet of A4 plain paper on which to do your work, and this needs to be returned to school by Friday 20th November.

 

 

Friday 6th November

 

Please read the text attached below and answer the relevant questions. If you are finding the text a little challenging, please complete the questions for Group 1 and if you would like a challenge, please complete Group 2.

 

Please note that for some of the questions, you may need to do some research in order to find the answers.

 

Due in: Friday 13th November

Friday 16th October

 

For homework this week, we would like you to design and build a Maya temple using junk materials. Have a look at the photos below for some inspiration.

 

Design your temple first on a piece of paper and then have a go at building it. You may use whatever you wish! Cardboard boxes, newspaper, card, lego...

 

Please take a photo of your finished temple and email it to us.

We will celebrate your work on our Year 6 page on the website :)

Friday 2nd October

For homework this week, we would like you to find and learn a poem, which you will then perform in front of the class at the end of next week (Thursday and Friday).

 

The poem should be at least 12 lines long and we require the children to learn this by heart. The poem does not have to rhyme, though the children may find it easier to learn if it does. Pupils will be allowed to use cue cards or actions to help them remember their poem. They will not be allowed a copy of the poem when they perform; however, they should give a copy to their class teacher, in case they need to be prompted. 

 

We appreciate that some children might find the idea of performing in front of a large group daunting, though we do try to encourage them to try this. If your child is becoming increasingly anxious at the idea of performing, do get in touch with us and we will make alternative arrangements.

 

For your information, we will be using the grid below to assess the pupils' performances:
