St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Friday 22nd January

Good morning Year 6!

It's Friday everybody!! Well done for working hard this week. Keep going today and then you have the weekend to rest. On the CBBC Channel, there is a Horrible History programme at 10.15 - it's called the Scary Special. Anybody up for that one?!

Anyway, let's get switched on and see what we are learning today...



Today's exercise choices:

1. Go outside for a refreshing walk (the forecast is for a DRY day).

2. Click on the link to Go Noodle and complete 3 of your favourite routines. (Today we did Fresh Start, Little Green Froggy and Bye Bye Bye in school).

3. Click on the link to Joe Wicks to tackle his exercise routine today. (He's back today for fancy dress Friday). 

4. Have a go at the Bingo Challenge Mr Steele has put on the main Class Page - this looks fun!



As a class, it's great news! We are improving on our reading. Charlotte found out today that you have a limit of 2 hours reading per week OUTSIDE school hours which are 7am - 4pm. This equates to 20 minutes per day for 6 days with one day of rest. During school hours, you can read as much as you like. If you have forgotten how to log on to this website, the Year 6 blog post 8.1.21 tells you how to log on to read these books.  Aim for 10 - 15 minutes of reading each day. 


Below are your tasks for today. Remember if you need to ask any questions go to the class blog and add a comment to 22-1-21 TODAY'S WORK. Keep checking the comments on this BLOG because that is where we will post our replies to you.



YIPPEE! It’s Friday and it’s Arithmetic Day. Today it is Y6 Spring TEST 3. Click on the PDF document below and your questions will appear.

Before you start your work, I would like you to click on the link to Y6 video page. You will see a video called 22-2-21 Arithmetic. I have talked through each question to remind you how to do them. Please watch it as it will help you.

You are still finding Long Division hard, so I have done a separate video just on division. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch it and try to have a go at the Long Division.

Do your working out and answers in your Maths Book and then get someone to mark it for you or mark it yourself. BLOG me your score out of 30 please.

Please don’t open the answers until you have done the work it won’t help you.



I’ve  set up a battle on Times Table Rock Stars. Boys against Girls. It will only last for 1 day and opens at 9.00am so make sure you don’t miss it. 


LO: To use emotive language

Today you are going to retell the Apollo 13 space story using the knowledge we learnt yesterday. As you are a child, you can write EASILY from a child's view point. So your task is to imagine you are the child of Jack Swigert, the astronaut who was brought in as a replacement for Kim Mattingly (the one who got German measles only 2 days before the launch). You must include EMOTIVE language because this child experienced a wide range of feelings during his dad's space mission. Read the information and instructions on the powerpoint below to guide you through this lesson.
