St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Thursday 28th January

Good morning Year 6!

I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying your learning. We all enjoyed the super Bible story in RE today called Jonah and the Whale. Many of you wrote detailed information texts about surviving in the Amazon Rainforest. In school we found out that an early Spanish explorer discovered the local tribal people from this huge South American rainforest. The women were very strong and fierce so he named them Amazonians after a group of Ancient Greek women who were also strong and fierce! That's how the Amazon Rainforest got its name! I wonder what amazing facts you will discover today? Let's find out...



Today's exercise choices:

1. Go outside for a refreshing walk. (Mrs Baird enjoyed a refreshing walk with Year 6 children this morning. However, it may rain today).

2. Click on the link to Go Noodle and complete 3 of your favourite routines.

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