Week beginning 15.06.20

Hello everyone,

All the teachers have been discussing the fantastic work that you have been sharing with us and have decided that we would like to create a display at school which exhibits the work that you have been doing at home as well as the work completed by the children of key workers who have continued to attend school. We hope you like this idea and will continue to send examples to us. Perhaps, if you haven't shared any work yet, you might like to?

We are looking forward to the Y6 children returning this week. However, we will miss all of you who will not be coming back just yet. We are working on a way to bring us together before the end of the summer term and will provide you with more details as soon as we can.

English

Time for another grammar and punctuation focus this week? 

Let's have another look at Espresso (or Discovery Education) which we have sometimes used to practise grammar and punctuation. We have attached the link again which will take you to the resources where you can choose from 'word', 'sentence' or 'text' level to watch the clip, take the quiz and try out the activity in order to either consolidate something that you have found tricky or try something new.

Science

Evolution and Inheritance: Evolution

As you work through this week's science, you will notice that we have a very famous, local biologist and naturalist who became well-known for his theories on evolution. Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury and was extremely influential in our understanding of life on Earth.

Start by watching the clip and filling the gaps. Read the slides and then you have a choice from 6 tasks. We would like you to complete at least 3 but you can do more if you choose to.

We have also included an evaluation questionnaire for you to complete after each task which asks you to think about how you've got on.
