Whizz Kids Yr 6

Changes to Home Learning

From Wednesday 22nd April, instead of posting individual tasks on our class page we will be directing children to the website below. Each day, the children will have access to three activities (English, maths and one foundation subject). 

As well as this, I will continue to tweet extra activities as well as
regularly posting Come and See activities. 


I hope to see you all again soon,

Miss Sillitoe

Week Beginning 22.06.2020
Week beginning Monday 8th June:

Maths reasoning activities

Come and see (Monday 8th June) Lesson 2: Research what, how and why the Jewish people celebrate the festival of Pentecost or Shavuot today. Explain how it influences their lives.

Try these 60 second reads!

This week's Collective Worship gives an opportunity for you and your family to talk, reflect and pray together on the theme of 'We Each Have Our Own Role'. This may take 10-15mins and can be led by an adult or a child. There are weblinks included for suggested music to use but, feel free to choose your own if you would prefer, and a suggested activity for afterwards. Top Tip: give each person a chance to pause and speak without interruption. God Bless and stay safe.

Come and see - Topic of Witnesses

Setting Descriptions

This week on Oak National Academy, you have been looking at describing settings. 

Below are some photos that you can use for extra practice:

Not sure where to start? 

  • What can be seen?
  • What can be heard?
  • How do people feel in this setting? 
  • Describe the weather - does it match the atmosphere? 
  • Use figurative language (similes / metaphors) to describe regular objects. 



A Poem For Year 6

*Note to Parents / Carers.

This work comes from the Come and See Religious Education programme which we teach to all children at St. Michaels.  The activities aim to keep Religious Education practical and fun.  Please only choose the activities you and your child wish to complete. There are lots of suggestions to help you choose.  You might want to take photographs of the children's work to share with school.  

The Topic for 20th April - 15th May is Pentecost.  The first part of learning is called – EXPLORE. This shares your child’s everyday experiences and helps them to see how the Catholic faith is lived in their everyday lives. The second part, called – REVEAL shares bible stories that links to their everyday life.
