Good morning Year 6! I hope you had a great, relaxing weekend and are ready to begin our learning for this week. Did you see the WAGOLL from last week? There is some excellent work on there so make sure this week's is just as good.
This week is a very special week in our history. On Friday we are having a special Bank Holiday to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day and you should all remember what this means. Our history learning today will focus on this event. Here we go...
Below are your tasks for today. Remember if you need to ask any questions go to the class blog and add a comment to 4-5-20 TODAY'S WORK. Keep checking the comments on this BLOG because that is where we will post our replies to you.
The winning dance from last week as voted by Year 6 was: What Makes You Beautiful!
PE Skills Week
This week we will focus on some PE skills that you could practice at home with your family. Just use any equipment that you can find. If you don’t have a tennis racket, you could use a kitchen tray or just your hand. If you don’t have a ball, scrunch up a piece of paper. Today’s game is called: Spot, bucket, hoop. Click on the link below which teaches you how to play. Let me know how you get on!
Don't forget to click on the link below to access PE Lessons with Joe Wicks. Apparently, he has injured his hand and so has Mrs Wicks helping him today.

Log on to Education City and complete the spelling activities called: Teed Off 1 and 2.
LO: To understand a text
Click on the power point link underneath this text to see an extract from a book called The Snow-Walker's Son by Catherine Fisher. It is a fabulous extract about a door and to help you understand it, I have recorded my voice and attached it to two of the slides. Click on the speaker icon in the top right-hand corner of the slide to hear me explaining the vocabulary and meanings. I have not talked about every single word but enough for you to understand. Answer the questions about this text in your red exercise book or on a word document and attach them to today’s blog or email them. I will post the answers tomorrow for you to mark your work and then send your scores in.

LO: To recall WWII learning
VE Day was the 8th May, 1945 when the Nazi forces surrendered to the allies, marking the end of World War II in Europe. This was 75 years ago!
