Year 6 Week Beginning 18.3.24

Another week has simply flown by again!

This week, Year 6 have been very busy preparing for ‘The Way of the Cross‘ service, which they will be leading, next Tuesday evening.

Please note: The children have all been asked to wear black as a base colour- costumes will be provided on the night; if your child is a reader however, they will need to wear their winter school uniform.

On Thursday, the children had a wonderful time at the Deepening the Mystery – ‘Unexpected Treasures of Art’ exhibition, at the The Focolare Centre for Unity, in Welwyn Garden City. The exhibition itself is part of the travelling Methodist Modern Art Collection and includes some of the most powerful and arresting religious art pieces of the 20th and 21st centuries. The children took part in a workshop, where they got to explore the stories behind the paintings and made links with their own Catholic faith. The staff who led the session were very impressed by the children’s RE knowledge and their outstanding behaviour! You can browse some of the collection by clicking on the link below:

Today in PE, Year 6 had lots of fun putting together their own haka dances and performing them to each other. A haka is a traditional Māori dance involving synchronised movements, often involving the aspect of challenge. The haka has been made world-famous by the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team. They are often performed in groups and can demonstrate a tribe’s power, pride, and solidarity.

Maths home learning project

Create your own knowledge organiser/ revision poster focussing on the properties of shape. Choose some regular/ irregular polygons that you feel less knowledgeable about: e.g. trapezium, kite, rhombus, parallelogram, pentagon, hexagon, octagon and different types of triangles.

Include where possible:

  • number of sides
  • length of sides (regular, irregular)
  • how sides relate to each other (parallel, perpendicular, adjacent, opposite)
  • number of angles
  • types of angles (acute, obtuse, reflex, right angle)
  • diagonals
  • lines of symmetry.

As mentioned in class, these will need to be brought back on Monday, as we will be using them in the lesson.

Other home learning:

  • Please continue to practise your readings and songs for Tuesday night’s performance at the church.
  • Continue reading.

Thank you!

Have a lovely weekend,

Ms Pemberton
