May Day 1.5.20 Year 6

Good Morning Year 6,

P.E – As usual we would like you to start the day with some physical activity, so remember to tune in to Joe Wicks at 9am on his YouTube channel for his daily workout or any physical activity of your choice.

Maths – Today is Friday Challenge- https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

The most suitable questions for Year 6 are 1-6 but why don’t you work with your family on the rest of the problems.

Literacy including spelling work – Using the new Government initiative home schooling page developed by teachers – I thought we would follow week 1 which was set last week.

Friday fun challenge from Mrs Weinstein: Today is May Day. It is a time when we can start looking forward to warmer weather and farmers can begin their work.  It was originally a Roman festival celebrating flowers, nature and Spring.  There are lots of traditions around this day such as dancing around the Maypole, gathering flowers and Morris dancing and crowning a May Queen.

For this Friday’s challenge we would like you to make a flower basket, flower crown or maypole.  Of course we would love to see some Morris dancing too so get your bells on!  There are some pictures below to help you get started.  Please email pictures to your class teacher.

Don’t forget to email us your work so we can see what you have been up to. Have a great day and after today, you can have 2 days off!
