Graffiti Art – Has graffiti always been seen in a positive light? How have attitudes towards graffiti changed over time? Is all graffiti good? Discuss these questions with your family or friends (remembering the social distance guidelines). Design your own graffiti art using paper and crayons or felt tips.

This piece of graffiti was produced by Banksy, what do you think its meaning is?

Take some time to research Banksy and his art and create a non-chronological report either on paper or using PowerPoint.

  • God’s Promise – Read the story of Noah’s Ark in the Book of Genesis or watch an animation of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vjjhMWJ2wE
    God had made a beautiful world for all to enjoy, look after and love. However, people did not do this, they did not treat it properly and God was not happy. So, there was a flood. Noah was spoken to by God, he was asked to build an ark to save the people and animals. Noah did as God asked. At the end of the story, God created a rainbow, it was a symbol of hope, a symbol of a promise that He made to the people of the world that He would keep them safe.
    Create a rainbow to symbolise God’s promise, you could draw, paint or even make a collage – let your imagination run wild!

Creative Creations - Cadburys are launching a new chocolate bar. Investigate Cadbury chocolate packaging by researching current Cadbury products. Once you understand how Cadbury package their products, design your own packaging (they may want to do this on a computer if they have access to one). Finally, gather some feedback from your family about the design. Use the feedback to adapt and refine the design. After creating the chocolate bar, you may wish to compose a jingle that could be used in an advert. This could be created by using household items such as pots and pans or by using these virtual instruments.

To all my Year 6s,      

 

As SATs week arrives it is not quite the same,

Whilst the tests were printed they never came,

For some of you, happiness paired with relief,

For others, shock and a sigh of sheer disbelief.

 

Algebra, fractions and weekly arithmetic drills,

Inference, skimming and scanning, reading skills,

Past, present, progressive… and all that SPAG stuff,

You’ve listened and practised to be good enough.

 

COVID-19 means that SATs won’t happen this term,

But remember tests don’t measure everything you learn,

Primary lessons are varied; you’ve always tried your best,

And many of these skills can’t be defined by a test.

 

So, here at English Martyrs’ you’ve made us so proud,

We sit here with pride and shout this out loud…

“Year 6 you amaze us, you’ve come incredibly far…

And we don’t need a test to know how incredible you are!”

 

Love

Mrs Jackson

History

Friday is a Bank Holiday and the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. Take a moment to reflect on the enormous sacrifice, courage and determination of people from all walks of life who saw us through the war in Europe.

VE Day Activities:

  • Locate the countries which participated in some way during WW2. Which countries were the enemies? Which were allies?
  • Research the events which took place at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of World War 2. Create a timeline of the events which lead to the start and end of the war.
  • Time to talk: Is there anyone in your family who remember anything about World War 2 or VE Day? Think about questions you would like to ask someone who witnessed the first VE Day. Perhaps talk to someone in your family to see if you can explore any possible answers.
  • On Friday 8th May 1949 many street parties were held up and down the country to celebrate the end of the war in Europe. Write a menu for the foods they might have eaten on this day during the parties. Perhaps work with your parents to make your own street party dinner on Friday.

Good Morning Year 6,

I hope you all had a lovely Easter, how many eggs did you get? I wonder if anyone can email me to tell why we give and receive eggs?

 

What did you do in your Easter break, Mrs Jackson? I hear you ask…

  • Tidied and weeded the garden – I’m not allowed to cut the grass as that is Mr Jackson’s favourite job.
  • Cleaned my car however I did leave the roof down and a bird pooed on the back seat!
  • Cameron and I cycled the Guild Wheel; it was lovely even though Cameron got lost because he raced off – typical boy!
  • Successfully completed a 1000 piece Disney Princess jigsaws and started another with Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

 

As promised I have added a new section to our class page for all your wonderful work – check it out! Keep the emails coming - EMYear6@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

Friday 10th April

Good Morning,

 

What a beautiful on this sunny Good Friday! Today would have been the first day of our Easter Holidays and with that in mind I will not be setting any work during this Easter. Please use this time to relax in the sun, learn something new or just do nothing.

 

Mrs Howarth has been impressed with all your responses to her Daily Challenges therefore she will be setting a ‘Bumper Easter Pack’ for those of you who want to do it. Please tag me in your emails so I can see your work as I am not in school next week.

 

Thank you those children who have sent me work and messages, I am going to create a page on our class page to display it all – keep your eyes peeled for it!

 

Stay safe and enjoy your ‘Easter Holidays’

 

Love Mrs Jackson

Evening Year 6,

 

I hope you have had a lovely weekend and you are trying to keep occupied. I know it is hard to stay happy and positive at this confusing time however I’m sure it won’t be too long before we are all back together.

 

Yesterday was Palm Sunday when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. He was greeted by crowds waving palm leaves and shouting ‘Hosanna!’ As we continued in Holy Week, today we remember when Mary anointed the feet of Jesus with expensive oil. Jesus was so grateful for the gift Mary gave to Him. Take some time to think about and write down all the things you are grateful for (you can email me them if you wish).

 

I have really enjoyed reading your Purple Mash information leaflets about the animals from Dublin and Edinburgh zoo, keep them coming in! Also, well done to those who completed Friday’s arithmetic test – as far two children have scored 40/40 (chocolate bars are still up for grabs!)

 

Purple Mash

Use MashCam to put yourself into the role of the zoo keeper looking after the animal you chose to focus your leaflet on. Write about your daily routine in the speech bubble.

 

My Maths

Test your mathematical knowledge – who can get 40 out of 40?

 

Keep looking for rainbows

 

Love 

Mrs Jackson

 

 

I got a present today...

Thank you so much to Mrs SworeΕ„ who made me a beautiful croquet rainbow for my window at home.

There are some great video tutorials on YouTube if you fancy having a go at a spot of croquet. Don’t forget to email me photos of your creations.

Good evening Year 6,

 

I have been in school yesterday and today looking after the children whose parents are busy keeping our country going and safe. However, it is very strange and quiet without my crazy bunch of Year 6s (and the rest of the year groups).

 

Mrs Howarth is in her element receiving all your replies to her daily challenges, there has been some great emails… well done, you are still making me very proud. I have also enjoyed receiving your emails with your photos and work; I’m trying to reply to you all as quick as possible.

 

Purple Mash

Visit the ‘Virtual Adventures’ section of our class page and select either Dublin or Edinburgh Zoo, observe the animals then choose your favourite to  create an information leaflet on.

 

My Maths

Arithmetic Test - Can you improve on your last score? Who is feeling 40?

 

Stay safe and keep working hard

 

Love

Happy Friday Year 6,

 

We have been lucky to have had such gorgeous weather this week; I hope you have been making the most of it… revising in the yard/garden, helping with the weeding or playing in the sunshine with your brothers or sisters.

 

If you have passed school over the last few days you will have noticed our beautiful rainbows, these are to remind people to stay positive and a sign of a brighter future. Why don’t you do one for your window or/and see how many you can spot when you are out (remember to follow the government guidelines!).

 

Last night, at 8pm, many of my neighbours and I stood on our doorsteps to ‘clap for carers’ as a tribute to all those working for the NHS to keep us safe. I hope you and your family joined in as we all know how important it is it be thankful and count our blessings.

 

Mrs Howarth has been very busy this week, she has set all the classes up with a special email address which means you can send me your work, photos or just a little message.

Our class email address is: Year6@englishmartyrs.lancs.sch.uk

 

Have a lovely weekend and safe stay

 

Love

Mrs Jackson smiley

 

P.S. - I've put a reading activity on Purple Mash for you to have a look at over the weekend yes

Good morning Year 6,

 

Firstly, I hope you have all had a lovely weekend staying safe and spending time with your family... I’ve been thinking of you.

 

I’m in school today but it isn’t the same without your smiling faces; our classroom is quiet and your seats are empty. I know I’m not there to reassure you when you need it. I know I’m not there to congratulate you when you have done something amazing and tell you have wonderful you are. However, please remember…

  • I am STILL proud of you.
  • I am still here.
  • I am STILL YOUR TEACHER!

 

Love Mrs Jackson

 

 

 

20th March 2020

Dear Year 6,

 

For almost all of you, today has been your last day at school for a while so I wanted to write to you to let you know some important things.

 

  • Don’t be frightened. You may hear some things that you are worried about, but these are not worries for you. Tell someone you trust about your worry and let them look after it for you.
  • There are some good things happening in amongst the bad things. There is less air travel and as a result, the environment is getting a bit of a rest and who knows, maybe we can work out new and better ways of doing things in the future. People are talking to each other and offering to help each other more. That’s a good thing; make sure you do that too whenever you can.
  • Even though you are missing school, you can still learn and try your best at everything you do. You might even learn some new skills to share when we are back.

 

Today we are saying goodbye to each other for some time; we are all having an adventure and like all adventurers we must to be brave.

 

Stay safe and God bless

 

Mrs Jackson
