Our lovely volunteer Nicole has sent us an email from her home in Germany!

Hi Year 6,

I hope you’re all right! I‘m back in Germany now, living at home without school and university as you do too. My days are quite simple. When I wake up I read a book first, you’ve shown me how nice it can be to read in the morning. Then, I do some writings for the university. In the afternoon I try to do some sporty activities with my sister. As you see, we're all staying at home in Germany too.

I had a really good time with you, Year 6. Thank you for welcoming me in your classes. This weekend I‘m going to show my family flapjacks, I am sure they‘ll like it.

Tschüss and stay healthy!
Nicole

PS. Who remembers the numbers from 1 to 10 in German?

 

3/4/2020

Today's maths is different. You will be dusting off your guitar, putting on your best performance outfit and heading to Times Tables Rockstars!

Eagle and Kestrel are engaged in a fierce battle to see who are the best rockstars in Year 6. For your work today, we would like every child to head to Times Table Rockstars and spend at least 30 minutes (we will be checking!!) practising their times tables and taking part in the battle.

Your login details were given to you on the final day before the school closed. If you do not have your login details for whatever reason, please leave us a message on ClassDojo or email the school at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will get it to you ASAP.

This a friendly match between Eagle and Kestrel. Over the Easter holidays, the whole school Battle of the Bands will take place. Can one of the Year 6 classes finally snatch the crown from the Year 5 Owl class?!

  2. Who is the audience of a play script? (Whois supposed to read it?)
  3. List 4 features of a play script that you notice in this text.

    Hello, everyone, it's Mark , Sabrina's Reading Buddy here. Wow! All the learning and activities on this page look exciting. Like you I am also working from home, but I think I would rather be doing your work at the moment lol. Take care and perhaps once this is all over we will have to have a reunion to say hello and a proper goodbye as you leave primary school to progress to your new secondary schools. Stay safe and take care :-)
