Salut! It’s Mrs. Leverton here to start off your week of wider curriculum learning again and it’s French and PE again for you today.
TASK 1 – French
Mr. Rist is going to get you warmed up with some revision of the days of the week including putting these in to a conversation. Mr. Rist did make this video for last week as you can tell from his opening! Remember to join in and practice your pronunciation.
We are going to move on with time but still using the language we have been developing during home learning. We are going to learn the vocabulary of seasons. Please work through the powerpoint below – remember there are sound buttons to click which pronounce the words for you. Join in and practice your pronunciation. Maybe you could get someone at home to practice with you? There is a question and answer that is used near the end that will be useful to practice for your work.
Now have a go at the worksheet – there is no need to print it off but have a go at the activities.
Try to give your answers in a full sentence, for example:
Dans quelle saison est mai ?
Mai est au printemps.
If you want to learn more, click on the BBC Bitesize link below which will combine today’s learning with work we have done in school about the weather.
Amy Burton has been busy Dazzle Dancing away for us again and has another great work out for us all to have a go at here. Enjoy!
Let us know how you got on with today’s tasks and share any work you have produced using the google form below.

Greetings Year 6 Scientists! For our final Science blogging lesson, we are going to be looking at FOOD! We have already learnt about how the digestive system transports food (and nutrients) all around the body. But what are the different nutrients our body needs to keep healthy? We need a range of food groups in our diet such as:-
Watch the following video then answer the questions about it below.
Click on the Quiz Picture to answer questions about the video!
Look at the Powerpoint below and write down the food groups that each meal contains. I have done the first one for you! Use this photo below to help you work out the food groups:-
Toast – Carbohydrates
Tomato – Fruit and vegetables
Beans – Proteins
Egg – Protein
Sausage – red meat
Bacon – red meat
Plan what a healthy, balanced day of food could look like. Make sure you have looked at the EatWell guide again to give you some ideas. Have you included all their recommendations such as:
Snacks and other

Hi Year 6! Miss Stephens here! Today we will have 2 tasks: art and music!
TASK 1 - ART
We will be learning about a famous artist, Paul Klee. Who is he? Read below...
We are going to recreate Paul Klee's art, "Castle and Sun."
The video below shows 2 different ways to do this:
- with pastels
- collage of coloured paper
Do not worry if you don't have pastels, you can easily do this with felt tips, crayons, coloured pencils... maybe even on the computer or tablet? Ooo..
TASK 2 - MUSIC
Thursday 4th June
Hello year 6! Continuing with our journey across Northern America, we are going to stop off at one of USAs main states – New York which has the most populated city in the whole of the USA – New York City.
I would like you to use the video link below and the PowerPoints to find out all about New York. Remember to make notes as you listen and read the information. I wonder what cool facts you will find out?
I’ve also found some cards which give some extra interesting facts – ignore the last couple of cards unless you want to role play at home!
I would like you to produce a fact file or poster about New York – decide if you want to look at the whole state or focus in on New York City – the choice is yours! I’ve attached a basic template if you want to use it to set out your work but I’m sure you can be creative a develop your own fact file! I’ve also included the remember tos for the task.
For those of you wanting an extension, I’ve attached a map activity below. Use the maps on the sheet as they give you all the information you need. The answers are even on the second page if you want to check. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough fun, I’ve added a word search as well!
Please share any work using the link below that you have completed.
Friday 5th June
Greetings Year 6s and welcome to Friday’s creative curriculum lesson. This will be your last lesson of home learning for lockdown so I hope you enjoy it!
We are going to be combining our work on New York with some art today – I’ve been really looking forward to this lesson! But firstly, we need to find out some information. We are going to be finding out two sides of a debate regarding graffiti – is it art or vandalism? Let’s find out more so you can make your own mind up. Firstly, have a read through the PowerPoint below to find out some key facts.
Now have a watch of the video clip below (follow the link). Use the clip to answers the questions below.
Here is another video giving some more viewpoints.
Below is a table with different statements on. Have a read through each one and decide if you think it is supporting an argument for or an argument against graffiti as an art form. You don’t need to print this out – I’ve given you some ideas of how you could complete this task on the document.
Now over to you. I would like you to write a paragraph about your views on graffiti – is it an art form or vandalism? Or maybe you might see it as both? You can always write this on a piece of paper and send the image in or write a response on the google quiz.
Finally, have a go at creating your own graffiti style art. The are two videos below – one is more basic (the first video) whereas the other is a little more detailed (also more cheesy but better results!) Choose one of the tutorials and see what you can create!
I can’t wait to see your work from today – please upload it using the link below.
