Video message from your class teachers – w/c 13/07/20
Independent Work for Home Learning – w/c 13/07/20
We would love to see all the fabulous work you have been doing at home. If you would like to share any photos of your projects or artwork, please email the school with the photos attached and add the subject “FAO Y6 Teachers” and we will aim to update the website regularly so you can see what your friends have been up to! Please note by kindly submitting photographs/images of your child’s work you are giving permission for the material to be uploaded onto the school website. Please state if you would rather your work is not included. Thank you.
As usual please use the information below to access your home learning. We have chosen some activities from the new Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize websites. However, if you would like more content and structure we recommend making fuller use of these websites which are both offering home learning using a variety of videos, games and activities.
We are now posting the days we suggest you complete activities for literacy and maths. If your children are attending school part time, we would like them to focus on the specific activities for the days they are off. This way, they will be at the same point in their learning as all the other children in the days they are in. However, please do not feel pressured to stick to the suggested days if you feel it is not possible to do so.
Your task today is to write your alternative ending to Kensuke’s Kingdom. Focus on Kensuke’s emotions in each paragraph and use this Emotion Thesaurus Vocabulary Grid to help. Whilst you are writing, try and include as many narrative features as possible. When you have finished, check you writing against this I Can Checklist.

We have also prepared a collection of useful websites for you to access to help your children with their studies.

Year 6 Showcase
Gymnastics Competition at Baskervilles
There were two teams from WASPS: level 1 and level 2.
Each team consisted of 5 gymnasts who each had to perform two vaults and a floor routine. In the level 2 competition, the gymnasts came second, only 0.5 points away from the winners! The level 1 team also came second. Everyone has fun and enjoyed the competition.

Over to Bethlehem
Yesterday, Year 6 walked up to the Weston All Saints Church to perform their Christmas Nativity Plays. Year 6 classes all performed their own Christmas shows with a little twist. The nativities were a great success! Everyone who took part in the play was a star and the parents loved it. The plays involved a game show, and then over to Bethlehem for an outside broadcast.
In the studio, the Quizmaster/Mistress asked questions to all four quiz contestants. In Bethlehem, the reporter(s) asked important questions about recent events. Some classes included a News-desk. The three plays started at 13.00 and ended at 15.05. The choir performed in every play, we all sang “Come and Join the Celebration” at the end. The reporters interviewed people like the neighbour, a rich foreigner, a Pharisee and of course the landlord of the Inn. The play was intended to be humorous but also to get the message of Christmas across. It was a great success.
