Groundbreakers Weekly Worship Video

Here is the link for this weeks assembly entitled Me first!

In it, we think about times when it is OK to be first, or to want to be first, but we also consider those times when being first should not be the most important thing. We go on to think about the topsy turvy statement that Jesus made about the first being last and the last being first and as usual there is a story.

Me First!

This weeks assembly is called WWJD? and is all about the value of service. It looks at a question that Jesus’ disciples asked him about who was the greatest. There are several places to stop and think about who the children think is the greatest and why, what criteria we use to decide who is the greatest and whether we can actually decide at all and a further place at the end of the video to think about how we can serve others.

We hope you enjoy and that it provokes some interesting discussions.

Here is the final Topsy Turvy video of this half term called Bee Loving! With Valentine’s Day at the end of the week, we are thinking about love and how we show love to others.

I discovered that St Valentine is the patron saint of lovers and also bee keepers and so we look at how bees can teach us a thing or two about how to love.

There is a game which involves making as many words as you can from the word Valentine, fun facts about St. Valentine and the story of The Good Samaritan with places to pause and think as usual.

Bee Loving!

Spellings – important information

Hello Year 6

As discussed in class today (4/11/20) we will be ‘upping our game‘ a little bit as regards spelling.

On top of your 15 weekly ‘group’ spellings, I will be dropping in a further 5 from the sheets below. Don’t forget: you’ve been given your own personal copy so keep it safe and use it. The tests will now be out of 20.

‘Grand spell’ tests will still be out of 20 and I will tell you which words to revise before those tests.

Remember: the spelling RULES are even more important than just the words.

Put the effort in and you’ll do well!

Hello everyone,

Following a few initial problems earlier today, it seems most of you are up and running with SEESAW. I’ve tested several accounts now and it seems that if you follow the instructions closely on the letter with the ‘home learning code’ and QR code and go to (or download the CLASS app)  then you should be OK as long as signing in as a student -not a family member.  The TEXT codes in the letters sent out a couple of weeks ago do still work – you need to leave spaces in between the groups of 4 letters :

example  :   FHNG  EEHT  ANDS  SSET     Each child’s code is different and if logging in this way, you’ll only be able to see your own work uploaded.

You should then be able to upload work and see the ‘activities’ tab. I’ve tried it at my house and it seems to be OK.

Again – here to support if you need me.

I am going to upload maths answers to Monday and Tuesday on Tuesday evening, because a few people have not managed to access the work yet it seems.

Keep at it and keep safe.

Have a good evening!

Mr Day

Y6 Home learning w/c 9th November 2020

If you have any problems or questions, please make contact with me through SEESAW or through the school office email at:

We will get through this together!

Stay safe. Stay happy. Keep positive!
