Welcome to Year 6 Class!
Teacher: Mr. C. Barnacle

Some ideas for activities during your time at home
Please remember that we are in our Lenten period and it is important that we continue to remember what Lent is all about.
Watch YouTube Sunday School lessons. He is Risen - Matthew 27 / Easter story for kids / Sunday school lesson.
Then complete one or more of the following activities:
Read Matthew 28 1-10. (on the internet or in your Bible) In this account of the Resurrection, both Jesus and an angel appear to the two Mary's sending them to tell the Disciples that Jesus is risen and to look for him in Galilee.
Read John 20: 1-9. We do not know what Peter and John said when they heard the news of the empty tomb from Mary Magdalene. Write down in the form of a playscript what you think they said:
Mary M: They have taken Jesus from the tomb and we don't know where they have put him
Write a story, book review, character description or setting (you could use Goodnight Mister Tom as inspiration or perhaps Who let the Gods out.)
Write a poem – haiku, limerick or acrostic.
Create a play script and perform – you can use almost anything as your inspiration (Don’t forget to use the features of play script writing though!)
Write a letter, diary entry or postcard – I would love to hear what you have been up to.
Practice your spellings – look, say, cover, write, check
Write a biography about your favourite famous person – author, film star, historian or even politician.
Revise your timetables – use TT Rocks, YouTube has loads of amazing videos, play Timetable Bingo with your family and take on the role as the teacher.
Use Mr Hegarty on YouTube to research any areas you would like to revise.
Have a look at the ‘Useful Websites’ for lots of fun games.
Create a mock SAT’s paper for your family – use your CGP as inspiration to help create your questions.
Create your own loop cards
Take part in the weekly Lego Challenge.
Make puppets and put on a play
Create a new board game and share
Design a poster about the importance of hand hygiene
Design an Easter Egg Hunt that you can play around the house or garden
Bake something delicious that you can share with your family and then share the recipe online for others to try.
Research the Vikings and the Mayans and create a fact file, include key facts, dates, where they fit in the time line, pictures etc.
Have a look at ‘The Historic England’ website which contains an education section that includes: teaching activities, collections of educational images, downloadable resources, PowerPoints, worksheets and notes.
The BBC Hands on History website contains a variety of animations, creative activities and projects to bring history alive for your children and don’t forget to have a look at Horrible Histories – a fantastic fun programme to watch and learn all about history.
Have a look at a maps of the world online and see where the lines of latitude and longitude dissect our planet, can you identify and locate the counties of the UK? You could create your own map of the UK including key cities, capitals and where we are located. You may also want to create a fact file or poster all about global warming and what we can do to slow it down. Perhaps you have in interest in rivers and how important they are to countries around the world, you may want to research a specific river such as the Nile or Amazon and include the rain forest in your research
Continue to create programmes using Python and Scratch.
Electricity – continue to research circuits – what happens if I put another bulb in the circuit or perhaps an additional cell. What function does a switch have on a simple circuit and a parallel circuit? Create a poster explaining how circuits work.
If you don’t have to self-isolate, go on a science walk, remembering to keep a 2 metre distance from other people. Look for living things in their natural habitats and changes in the season’s plants and flowers. How can we classify these groups? Look for similarities and differences.
Take a ‘Science Selfie’ and explain why your picture is scientific. Create a collection of selfies showing that science is all around us.
