Home Learning

Hello Year 6!

I hope you are looking after yourselves at home :)

I am working to produce a list of useful websites for you to access from home - which I will be continually updating below.

 

All of you have online log-in details for
Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and ActivLearn Primary.  
Activities have been uploaded onto these sites for you
to access at home.
Please email the school office if you need a copy of your these details.

 

Continue to look after yourselves, your family

and be kind to others.

 

Take care and keep in touch, Miss Davies :)

Kid Normal

 

Greg James (Radio 1 Breakfast) has released a free audio version of his book - Kid Normal - for you to be read to on Audible and Google Play.

 

Kid Normal by Greg James and Chris Smith

When Murph Cooper rocks up to his new school, he can't help but feel a bit out of his depth. And it's not because he's worried about where to sit, and making friends, and fitting in, or not knowing where the loos are.

It's because his mum has enrolled him at a school for superheroes by mistake. And unlike his fellow students Murph has no special abilities whatsoever. But just because you don't have superpowers, it doesn't mean you can't save the day....

The Time We Spring-Cleaned the World

 

The world - it got so busy,

There were people all around.

They left their germs behind them;

In the air and on the ground.

 

These germs grew bigger and stronger,

They wanted to come and stay.

They didn't want to hurt anyone -

They just really wanted to play.

 

Sometimes they tried to hold your hand,

Or tickled your throat or your nose.

They could make you cough and sneeze

And make your face as red as a rose.

 

And so these germs took over.

They started to make people ill,

And with every cough we coughed

More and more germs would spill.

 

All the queens and kings had a meeting.

"It's time to clean up the world!" they said.

And so they had to close lots of fun stuff,

Just so the germs couldn't spread.

 

We couldn't go to cinemas

Or restaurants for our tea.

There was no football or parties,

The world got as quiet as can be.

 

The children stopped going to school,

The mums and dads went to work less.

Then a great, big, giant scrubbing brush

Cleaned the sky and the sea and the mess!

 

Dads started teaching the sums,

Big brothers played with us more,

Mums were in charge of homework

And we read and played jigsaws galore!

 

The whole world was washing their hands

And building super toilet rolls forts!

Outside was quiet and peaceful,

Now home was the place for all sports.

 

So we played in the world that was home

And our days filled up with fun and love,

And the germs they grew smaller and smaller

And the sun watched from up above.

 

Then one morning, the sun woke up early,

She smiled and stretched her beams wide.

The world had been fully spring cleaned!

It was time to go back outside.

 

We opened our doors - oh, so slowly

And breathed in the clean and fresh air.

We promised that forever and always

Of this beautiful world we'd take care!

 

2020
