Year 6 – Thursday 21st May learning

Hello, Year 6, and happy Feast of the Ascension!

On Tuesday, Maria sent me this wonderful clip of her playing Fly Me To The Moon on piano, which she had set herself the challenge of learning. Brilliant!

Luka has also been busy making music!

And here is his spaghetti bridge that he made for D&T. Excellent work, Luka.

RE WALT explain the importance of Pentecost for the Christian Church.

Today is the Feast of the Ascension, which marks 40 days since Easter Sunday. In 10 days time, ie. 50 days after Easter, we will celebrate the Feast of Pentecost.

Watch this retelling of the story of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-13):

How did the crowd react when the apostles came out speaking in lots of languages?

Most were amazed, some were confused, and some mocked them, accusing them of being drunk.

Imagine you are one of the disciples and a news reporter in the crowd approaches you. He says to you, “Some people here think that you and your friends are drunk. What do you have to say to those people?”

Write what you would say in response to that question?

·        What happened whilst you were in the room?

·        What have you and the other disciples come to believe?

·        What does this mean?

Perhaps you could get into role and record yourself as if being interviewed on BBC News! Maybe you could get a parent to be the news reporter.

Make sure you send me any clips that you record; I’d love to see them!

Computing WALT use coding to build an underwater world.
