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

Year 6 2019-20

Our Christian Value focus is Forgiveness.

Do not judge, and you will not be judged.  Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.  Luke 6 verse 37

Hello Year 6

Good morning Year 6 – we hope you all had a great weekend. In case you haven’t seen it, we have posted a special video message for you all. Scroll down the bottom of our class page. Thank you again for all the work you are completing at home and sending to us - it really is lovely to see the work you’re completing at home. It really does bring a smile to our faces.   As we’ve mentioned in our video, we have now set the whole week’s work below. Some subjects ( RE and Science) I have set a task for the week.  Mrs. Thornhill will continue to upload a chapter from, ‘Tom’s Midnight Garden,’ daily.

Also, something new, if you log into www.heasrtsmart.family you can use this online resource like a daily assembly. There are daily broadcasts along with activities to complete.

Remember, in addition to the daily work we are setting, you can also make use of the fabulous free resources below.

We are both missing you all and look forward to seeing to you all again soon.

Love to you all,

Mrs. MacDonald and Mrs. Thornhill  xx

 

Prayer

Heavenly Father, as we adjust to being home together as businesses and schools close, we ask that You guide us in our new routines.

Give us grace for one another. Prompt us to speak words of kindness and encouragement.

Help us find creative ways to experience the beauty of all You have created and continue learning new and wonderful things day by day.

Amen

This task  is to be completed over the week:

We are starting a new topic. Light.   I would like you to build on the learning in other year groups and explore the way that light behaves, including light sources, reflection and shadows.  Over the week, research the following areas so that you understand:

  • that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye
  • that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes
  • that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them.

A Fabulous website to help with your research is  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zbssgk7
