‘Letting our light shine as we live, love and learn, together with Jesus’

Year 6 2019-20

Hello Year 6

We hope that you are all well and have been enjoying the fabulous sunny weather. I can’t believe it’s June already! This week, we continue with life skills activities, home challenges and English and Maths every day. It’s so important to keep our literacy and numeracy skills ‘ticking’ away nicely! I’ve also included Science and Spanish lessons which build on previous learning, so please have a look at those. 
Don’t forget the learning and the timetable on this page are only suggestions… just good ideas. Don’t worry if you don’t get through all the learning- it’s not a checklist. Do what you can, when you can. We don’t mind. We just want you to stay safe and happy… and remember, we are always here to help. If you have any questions, concerns or what to show us the lovely work you’re doing please email us on: 

Year6cv@trinity.lancs.sch.uk

Lots of love, Mrs. MacDonald and Mrs. Thornhill  xx

GARDENING
This week, I would like you to help with simple gardening activities. With your parent’s permission, you could carry out simple tasks such as: weeding and watering.  Some of you might be able to have a go at mowing the lawn too- under supervision of course!! Whilst out on a daily walk or in your gardens, look at the trees and flowers that you can see. Perhaps you can collect the leaves of different trees? Use the chart to help you.

Activity 2: RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT 
In our last lesson we looked at Pentecost and refreshed our memories on the 9 Fruits of the Spirit.  
Today we are looking at LOVE. Watch the film clip below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqC21JQBcaI
In this video, Douglas mentions a verse in the bible from 1Corinthians 13: 4-8
LOVE is patient
LOVE is kind, it does not envy or boast 
LOVE rejoices over truth. 
Love always trusts, hopes, and perseveres. 
LOVE is NOT jealous, it isn’t proud, rude, selfish, angry, and it takes no pleasure in evil. 
Why not read and write out this verse or try to learn this verse and replace the word LOVE with your name.  Then you could maybe say it as a prayer.
Discuss with your family how you can show love through your actions. Maybe it’s by doing a chore for your mum or siblings. Calling a friend to say how much you are missing them.  Find a way (or many ways) to love others this week.
To finish there is a little song about love on the film link below:

We are moving on to a new spelling objective, plurals. A plural noun is used when there is more than one of something. Most nouns follow rules to turn them into plural nouns. Some plural nouns are irregular and can be difficult to spell, whilst others stay the same.
Please copy the following words into your handwriting books:  
bookshelves, beliefs, thieves, memories, countries, echoes, dominoes, tomatoes, pianos, studios, donkeys, butterflies
