W/C 11th May 2020
Dear Year 6,
It was lovely to speak to 6D last week and to find out what you've all been up to. You are all doing amazingly well and I was so pleased to hear how many of you are helping around the house and helping with cooking too: these are fantastic life skills and much appreciated by your parents/carers too.
I know Miss Goss is looking forward to speaking to 6G when she returns to work next week. Miss Goss sadly lost her grandmother and her uncle last week. Please take the time this week to say a prayer for Miss Goss and her family at this very sad time. I know Miss Goss would really appreciate it.
Keep up the good work & take care,
Maths - Fraction Revision & Tangram Cakes
This week you will be revising the topic of fractions. You became 'fraction masters' with all the arithmetic practice we did in class so this should be a nice refresher. The work is split into 5 days:
Day 1 - Simplify fractions
Day 2 - Compare & order fractions
Day 3 - Add & subtract fractions
Day 4 - Mixed addition & subtraction
Day 5 - Friday Family Cookery Maths Challenge
Each day has a series of questions which lead you through the learning. Show your work in your pink home learning journals or in your yellow maths jotter books. There are answers, with explanations, for each day's work so you can mark your work when you have completed it.
Here is a link to the website where you can access the videos prior to each lesson:

Friday's family maths challenges is a cookery class this week! You will need to watch the video.
I look forward to seeing your tangram cakes and I might even have a go myself ...

Religion - Pentecost
Pentecost is when Jesus gave his Apostles the gift of the Holy Spirit. This year Pentecost will be celebrated on Sunday 31st May.
Religion Task - Create a Pentecost Word Cloud
Use the image below, the Bible reference and the link below, to create your own 'word cloud' for Pentecost.
You can copy and paste the Bible reference to create your word cloud or you can explain in your own words what happened at Pentecost and use that to create a word cloud. Think about the colours and shapes that represent Pentecost too. Please post photos of your word clouds on the school blog once they are done.
The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-13)
2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house
where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.
5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7 Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,[b] 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”
13 Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”
Art - Photography Project
This week your photography challenge is to take photos of patterns in nature, or in your home.
Have a look while you are out walking, in your garden if you have one or just around your home. What patterns do you notice? You might have to look carefully because some of them are very small. Is there a pattern on a tree or in a flower? The link below will help you compose your picture:
1) Find a pattern
2) Focus on the pattern
3) Fill the frame
See what interesting patterns you can find and post the most interesting ones on the blog. Have fun!
