Friday 10th July 

What a hectic week in school and an important one as we appointed a new Head Teacher this week.

Next week will be the last week of home learning for Year 6 and (due to Friday 17th July being your Leaver's Service day) there will be no home learning set after Thursday.

Next week is themed around 'minibeasts' so hopefully the weather will be better than this week and will let you get out to investigate. 

Mrs Stray and Mr Crick will NOT be holding TEAMS meetings next week due to seeing you all on Friday but also due to the number of TEAMS meetings with new classes also being arranged for next week.

Home Learning activities continue to be set for those of you at home and, as closely as we are able, they will match what is being taught in school. For maths, these continue to cover the areas of maths you will encounter when you start secondary school - so you are hopefully keeping these fresh in your mind as you complete them each day.

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

Please also try to keep up with doing daily reading.

Mrs Stray can still 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 around a near normal school day again now.

All the best and hopefully see all of you on Friday.

Mrs Stray and Mr Crick

Today we are going to return to Kensuke’s Kingdom’.

We want you to imagine that the deserted tropical island that Michael washed up on has been ‘discovered’ by developers as a result of him being rescued.

The island has now been turned into a tourist attraction with hotels and a wide range of leisure activities.

By the end of the week you will have recapped the features of persuasive leaflets and then drafted and created your own persuasive leaflet ‘selling’ the island to possible visitors – a little bit like the persuasive leaflet you may have produced for the ‘Shops’ topic week a couple of months ago.

Today look at the presentation below that reminds you how persuasive leaflets should be written and make notes on the features they include.

Look at the example leaflet included below and any other tourist attraction/ Theme Park leaflets you may have at home and look for the features they have used.

Mrs Llewellyn has created a range of ideas that you may like to try when you are in your garden, out on a walk or exploring the local area. If you have a go at any of these tasks, don’t forget to show us what you’ve been up to by sending photos to your class teacher or Mrs Llewellyn (Katy.Llewellyn@st-john.lincs.sch.uk).
