St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Thursday 9th April

We made it! It's Thursday and the last day of the Spring Term.

A HUGE congratulations to Year 6 who have worked hard to complete all their home learning tasks over these past 3 weeks. A big thank you to all your families who have also worked hard to help you with your learning. Mrs Baird and I are very proud of you all and have enjoyed seeing your work immensely. We will especially miss you tomorrow when in school we would gather for our Easter Readaround. However, Mrs McKeating and Mrs Baird refused to let this occasion pass without it being marked. You can still be part of our special Readaround by clicking on the powerpoint on our Classes Home Page. Please do this as you will really enjoy it, I promise you!

During the Easter Holidays, you can still keep up with your reading, TTRS and any of the home learning ideas from the Why Don't You slides on our Year 6 home page.

Keep safe, keep happy and be kind.

Happy Easter Everybody!



Below are your tasks for today. Remember if you need to ask any questions go to the class blog and add a comment to 9-4-20 TODAY'S WORK. Keep checking the comments on this BLOG because that is where we will post our replies to you.

There are three short tasks to complete today.

LO: To understand a text

Write a paragraph to explain what has been happening in your OWN reading book. Comment on the events and tell me how you feel about them. Tell me the book title and author first. You can either blog this or write it in your red exercise book and send a copy of it to me.


LO: To use grammar and punctuation skills

Complete the next 10 min test from the purple KS2 Grammar and Punctuation Book: Book 1 Set B test 3 page 29. When you have finished, use the answers to mark your work and then post your score out of 12.

Remember the subjunctive mood is a wish for the future that may or may not come true. (If I were Queen, I would…).


LO: To compare a text to a film

Enjoy watching this clip of Ali Baba and the Forty Bandits. This clip includes the conclusion of this story that we have not yet read. Click on the link and enjoy!


When you have finished watching, answer these three questions using the comment section of today’s blog:

  1. Compare the character of Sindbad to the character of Ali Baba. List 2 similarities and 2 differences.
  2. Compare your prediction to the actual story ending. Explain if you got any details correct or if you were completely wrong.
  3. Using the ideas from this topic, briefly outline an idea for another 1001 Arabian Nights story that Shahrazad could tell to her husband in order to save her life. What will be the cliff-hanger?


MATHS- L.0 Square and Triangle Numbers

Today you are going to learn about a sequence of numbers called TRIANGLE NUMBERS. Go to the MATHS FOLDER on the Y6 CLASS PAGE and you will see a link to a video. Watch the video. Once you have watched the video look at the slides underneath. These slides will explain your task. The last slide uses a formula to work out triangle numbers and this is an optional task.  



This is our last lesson on Evolution and Inheritance. Today we are learning about Fossils.

Watch the video that will explain what a fossil is and how they are made. Then you have the choice of 3 activities.

Option 1. Open the PDF and answer the questions on fossils. Write your answers in your book and send a picture or straight onto the BLOG.

Option 2. Make your own FOSSIL using SALT DOUGH, or try being a paleontologist using chocolate chip cookies. Pictures would be lovely. YOU MUST HAVE AN ADULT WITH YOU IF YOU ARE USING THE OVEN. 

Option 3. Using the Internet do some research and then Create a POWER POINT on Charles Darwin. There is a help sheet that shows you what to put on each slide. If you don't want to do Charles Darwin you could do Mary Anning. Please email the Power Point if you can.
