Good morning Year 6!

It is great to see more work coming through - we love to see what you have been doing!

Despite the rain, do keep trying to (safely and appropriately) get outdoor exercise - the rain and cool weather are making a refreshing change! 

Word of the Day - recline


- Find out what it means and write the definition in your own words!  
- What is its word class? (Is it a noun, verb, adjective?)  

- How many syllables does it have (clap each syllable to help you)?

- Can you find any synonyms or antonyms?

- Can you use it in an interesting sentence? 

Are you able to use it, appropriately, when you are speaking or in any of your writing opportunities?  Does the word suit your creature?!

 Finally, try to find the root of the word!


A few days ago we tried our hand at the standing jump. Today (if you have space) why not attempt a running jump?

As before, put a line (a piece of string, ribbon etc) on the ground as your starting point. Make sure there is nothing in the way and you can run or take 3 steps back easily. How far can you jump? Remember to use your arms to power forward too. Measure 3 jumps. Keep a record for the next few days. Can you get further?  

If you have lots of energy left, back to Joe Wicks!

Independent Reading

Settle down (recline in your sanctuary) somewhere comfy with a good book!

Comprehension Barack Obama

Today's challenges: Multiple Choice & Sequencing Good luck!


Today we are going to be looking at how we find missing angles in a triangle. As usual look at the PDFs and work your way through them


Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling

Look up and write the meanings of these words – they are useful when joining sentences together.


therefore       notwithstanding       however       nevertheless       furthermore     though


Write out the words, breaking them down into syllables – this will help you learn to spell them.

Write them in sentences to show their meanings – base your sentences around today’s writing – your care guide – how many can you include in your writing today?

Pullinski is very clean and under no circumstances must she sleep on bedding that is not fresh and sweet-smelling, therefore, bedding must be thoroughly laundered every three days.


The Arrival

Hurrah! Back to the care guide!



Another Science activity today that extends your learning from Term 3.  If you don't have the ingredients suggested in the instructions, be resourceful and see what you have at home that you could use (might be worth checking and asking permission about some things first ...)

Philosophical Question

Would you rather be a bird or a plane?

Spend some time discussing with those in your household or use technology to connect with friends or family to see what they would choose.  Will one prove to be more popular than the other?
