WC 13.7.20

Hello everybody! Thank you for sending me examples of your work through Tapestry – it has been wonderful to see what you have been doing. As a special treat, after all our hard work and your last week in Year 6, the curriculum has been suspended. So there is going to be a slightly different timetable involving some fun activities for you to enjoy. The following list is a series of suggestions of what you could do throughout the week. You can do them in any order you wish or maybe you have your own ideas. (Twinkl has several ideas for all of these areas.)

A Year 6 Zoom Meeting is going to take place on Thursday at 9:30am so we can all see each other again before the end of the year. You might want to send your class mates a message, tell us what you have been up to during Lockdown or wish them good luck. We look forward to seeing you! (Details to follow on Tapestry.)

At some point, we will have a picnic lunch outside – weather permitting!!

We are going to compare modern humans with known ancestors in terms of physical appearance and skeletons. This area of science still has new discoveries being made and there are still competing ideas as to how human evolution occurred and the different stages of evolution.  Human Ancestors Activity

Draw an example of each of them. Greek influences are found on a lot of Georgian and Victorian architecture – what messages do you think the owners and builders were trying to give by using this style?

Greek Architecture

PSHE: How people are feeling about their move to secondary. Everyone will be experiencing different emotions about their move to the ‘Big School’. Jot down some questions you would like to ask.

‘It would be better to always hold worship in the open air, so we don’t need to build new holy buildings and can use the money for something else.’ This statement is worthy of discussion. One view point is stated above but another viewpoint would be that holy buildings are needed in the community.   Think about both sides of this debate.
