Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to Term 6!


Whilst Bishop Ridley is closed, this page will be used as a way of communicating with the Year 6 pupils. This term, we are making some changes to the way in which we set and respond to work.


From next week (8th June), the Year 6 page will be updated by 9am on Monday morning and will include work for the whole week. The work will continue to be split into daily tasks and we advise children to only complete work set for that particular day, so as not to become overloaded with the tasks.


As with previous terms, we encourage pupils to e-mail us their work using the e-mail addresses below; however, please be advised that as school is partially re-opening next week, we will be in school more frequently. As a result, we will only be able to respond to e-mails two or three times a week. Once we know which days we will be in school, we will put a note on here so that you know when to expect a response to e-mails. These days may change each week, so be sure to check regularly.


This week, we are in school on the following days:


Mr Catchpole - Tuesday and Friday

Miss Facey - Tuesday and Wednesday


Remember, if you need to take a break from work or are looking for something a little different, make sure you check our 'Take a Break' page run by Mrs Lee, Mrs Charity and Mr Edwards, who now has his own YouTube channel, giving you ideas about how to stay physically fit during lockdown - go and check it out!

We look forward to catching up via e-mail and hope that you've had a nice half term!

Home Learning - Week Beginning: 1st June


As some of you know, this week would have been our PGL week (or fun activity week if you weren't going!). To celebrate this, and to reward you for all of your hard work, we have decided to set a range of activities for you to choose from, which can be completed over the next four days. There are 10 tasks in total and you should aim to complete at least one task per day (though we'd be impressed if you managed more!).


The activities are as follows:


1. Baking

Find a recipe (either online or in a cook book) and create a delicious treat for you and your family to enjoy. Make sure you take some photos of the different stages of the recipe, as well as the finished product, so that we can share your creations on the website.


2. Writing

Create a song, rap or poem on a topic of your choice. Spend some time mind-mapping possible ideas as well as rhyming words and then draft and publish your finished piece. If you're feeling brave, why not perform to a family member and get them to video you!


3. Making

Come up with a new board game concept for the whole family. Design the board itself, as well as the rules of the game. Once you have completed the game, ask some family members to test it out with you and make any changes that are necessary.


4. Acting

Choose a favourite scene from a film, TV show or book and re-enact it in an interesting way. You might want to create a script and assign roles to different members of the household, or you could use Lego or other action figures to be your cast! You may even want to design your own sets and props to use.


5. Moving

Come up with a brand new sport or physical activity that could be played by people of all ages. Consider how much space you have and the equipment that is available to you. Who knows? You could be the new Joe Wicks!


6. Designing

Using paper and pen, have a go at designing your own Dream House! What particular features will it have? Maybe an outdoor swimming pool, a games room, a cinema room etc. Once your happy with your design, consider whether it would be possible to build your dream house using junk modelling or Lego. We'd love to see photos of your designs and/or your finished products.


7. Inventing

What would make your life easier? Create a brand new invention that could help you in your life or the life of a family member. Consider what materials will be needed to create your invention and what sets it apart from other products already on the market.


8. Helping

Continue to spread our Christian Values by offering to help someone in your household with a job. This may include cleaning your bedroom, washing up, washing the car or hoovering. Basically, see what you can do to help your family through this tricky time!


9. Quizzing

Design a quiz that you can challenge your family (and your teachers!) with. What rounds will you have? Will there be a picture round or something a little bit different? Be sure to e-mail us your questions because we love a good quiz!


10. Dreaming

Draw, paint or create your own version of Paradise. What will your ideal future look like? Where will it be? Who will be with you? What will you have access to? You could use computer software to help you with your design.


We hope you enjoy your activity week and look forward to seeing what you come up with.


Parents - don't panic! Normal work will resume from next Monday, with some maths revision topics, work for our Leavers' Books and a weekly RE task.
