COVID- 19 Working From Home

Week 14: 

It has been such a pleasure getting to know you and I wish you all the very best as you head off to your next school. 

There is no need to submit work this week unless you want to.  I will still check the year group emails throughout the week.  There are some SPAG videos for Monday and Thursday to brush up on some tricky areas.  There are also a couple of fun reflection tasks based on your years at school which you might like to put away in a memory box for the future!  On Tuesday at 9.30am you are invited to join a Zoom quiz.  Ask you parents for the details I will email out.

(Don’t forget that the daily writing tasks are always available in the resources section at the bottom if you want to access them.)

Have a great week, a brilliant Summer holidays and all the very best for year 7!

RE: For RE this week, you will be continuing with your project on: Designing an Airport Multi-Faith and Belief Room. You should have already completed the plan/action plan, designed the logo or some artwork, thought about what special books and items that could be required, created a timetable of activities that could take place and created a plan of the room. This week research quotes from a variety of traditions that could be printed onto the walls of the Multi-Faith and Belief Room. (See pages 47.) Try to continue to keep a diary to include the activities you complete, new information you have learned and any ideas that you have to develop the Multi-Faith and Belief Room.

PE: Assault courses can include a mix of climbing, crawling, running, jumping and balancing elements and can vary in length and difficulty.  You might have a hoop, cones, ball or skipping rope that could be incorporated.  Create an assault course outside (or inside if necessary) that your family could complete.  Time them.  See if you and they can beat their personal best!
