Wednesday 20th May 

Hoping everyone in Year 6 is keeping safe and well and enjoying this week's sunshine.

In fact, as most of you surely have spilled out into your gardens more this week, I want to take this opportunity to highlight the various sporting challenges that have been put on the school home learning page for sports such as cricket or tennis.
Do have a look at them and give them a go. Let us know how you get on with them.

This week's topic is Lights, Camera, Action!

All these tasks can be completed in the exercise book you took home last term or printed and kept safely with this book.

Alongside these set tasks, we would also like you to maintain your daily reading, do the French activities Mrs Roche has set (La Nourriture) and keep physically active so you can do the ideas on the links below to the Agilitas Sports site of on the schools main home learning link on the home page.

There are additional links provided for a variety of activities on the Home Learning Tab on the Home Page.

Do continue to send e-mails to school to let us know how you are keeping and also maybe send pictures of the fun ways you have been keeping occupied - be that cooking, gardening, making things or just doing something crazy and we will share them regularly on these pages.

Mrs Stray is in school this week and can be contacted at the email address below.

Mr Crick is on half term break at home this week as he is in school next week so please email Mrs Stray for a quicker response in the first instance.

Mrs Stray can be contacted at: 6HS@st-john.lincs.sch.uk and Mr Crick at 6NC@st-john.lincs.sch.uk

Do not hesitate to drop us an e-mail if you have any questions. We will endeavour to reply as quickly as we can. 

All the best

Mrs Stray and Mr Crick

Home learning timetable for week 2 - beginning 30th March.

Dear parents and children.

I think I have finally managed to fix the problem with the Literacy link but it is very difficult to tell from in school where it was already working fine.

Please do email me if you are still struggling to access this.

many thanks

Mr Crick

Week 2 of home learning is upon us already and hopefully you are all settling into a daily routine now.

Week 2 carries on from Week 1 in many ways. There are daily Mathletics actvities for maths which revisit areas Year 6 have found tricky this year. Literacy and topic work continue on from last week. Please also look at the French link from Mrs Roche to keep your French practise up.

Now the teacher email is set up (Mr Crick is in school this week) please do keep in touch with questions you may have or to share things you have been doing.

Another great 'Battle of Britain' experience at Duxford

On Tuesday 12th November 2019, Year 6 visited Duxford Museum to extend their understanding of The Battle of Britain'.

Thankfully, the weather was relatively kind to us and the children had a great day seeing the planes involved in The Second World War - especially The Battle of Britain. In additional, they were able to see some of the precautions used to protect this country during the same period as well as some of the land craft used during the D-Day landings.

Another thoroughly enjoyable day.

Year 6 World War Two Air Raid Warden Shelter building

The end of another successful D.T project.

The children studied different types of shelter, conducted strength tests, joining techniques and then designed their own shelter ideas. Having made and evaluated prototypes, they went on to make their final design. THis included a vast range of skills including accurate measuring, cutting with saws, joining techniques, decoration and design and overcoming a few difficulties along the way.

 

Another successful visit to Duxford Air Museum

Year 6 successfully negotiated the driving wind to complete another enjoyable trip to Duxford Air Field.

We studied the life of a Battle of Britain pilot as well as seeing original planes and artefacts from the period.
