St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Tuesday 23rd June

Good morning Year 6 and Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday was a SUPER day! It was fabulous to see some Year 6 students in class. They all worked hard and really enjoyed their day. With all the windows and doors open, it was pretty cold so if you are coming in, make sure you have jumpers and coats to put on. Bloggers and emailers also worked hard and we all began work on our fantastic new novel, Holes. Anybody watch the Burnley match last night? I bet Miss Earnshaw was glued to the television! What are we learning today? Books and pens out and let's 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 23-6-20 TODAY'S WORK. Keep checking the comments on this BLOG because that is where we will post our replies to you.



I hope you made a start practicing your skills for the virtual Lancashire Schools' Sports Festival next week. Did you try a throwing or jumping activity? Try different ones today. Click on the link below to access this task.


L.O Area & Perimeter.


Last week we used the OAK Academy this week we are using WHITE ROSE MATHS. (You may remember using their resources before). Our topic this week is: Area and Perimeter.

Area is a measure of how much space there is on a flat surface. For example, in a rectangle we find the area by multiplying the length by the width. In the rectangle below, the area is 2×4 which = 8. If you count the small squares you will find there are 8 of them. The units for area is squares, so as these squares are 1cm in length the area is 8cm². We would use area if we wanted to work out how much carpet we needed for a room. In this case the units would be m² as rooms are usually too large to measure in cm.









Perimeter is a measurement of length. It’s the distance all the way around the shape. Imagine you had to put a piece of sting all the way around the outside edge of the shape. How many cm would it be. It would be 4cm + 2cm + 4cm + 2cm. = 12cm. The units for perimeter are just units of length. Eg mm, cm, m, km.

We would use perimeter if we wanted to buy some fencing to go round a field.

Click on video below. Listen very carefully to the White Rose teacher and then complete the pdf worksheet attached. Once you have finished look at the answers and mark your work.

Send your work/score in the normal way through the BLOG or EMAIL.

23-6-20 Lesson 1 - Area and perimeter


There are 2 tasks today.

LO: To understand palindromes

LO: To understand a text

I hope you enjoyed the start of Holes yesterday. Both of today's tasks are in the English folder on the Year 6 website page. After you have found some palindromes in task one, you need to read Chapter 3 or listen to the audio book by clicking on the link below. Listen to see if any of your questions from yesterday have been answered. This is a longer chapter (after 2 short chapters) because Stanley is on a long bus ride to Camp Green Lake. There are often flashbacks during this chapter (when Stanley is day-dreaming on the bus) to give extra information about Stanley’s background, for example, about his school and family. Go to the English folder on the Year 6 website page to find information and instructions for your tasks today.

LO: To tell the time

This week we are continuing with telling the time but making it a bit trickier by adding minutes past the hour. Listening to the audio on the slide will help you; and remember to try and repeat some of the phrases with the correct French pronunciation.

The task for this week is to write the time in French words, for each of the clocks on the last two slides of the presentation (14 clocks altogether). You can write your answers in the comments on the French blog, on a word document or written in your books. Please remember to email work to Mrs Jones so we can see the great work you are doing!

This powerpoint is saved as pictures in the French folder on the Year 6 website page (if you can't manage to download it) but you won't be able to listen to the pronunciations.
