Year Six (6)

Morning everyone.  


We've added more home learning for you but as always, the following learning are examples of what we would do during the day and can be done in any order, at any time during the day.  Please remember to build time to do fun things into your day too.


If you are having any problems with any of the learning or you feel you need to chat with a member of the Y6 team, please message us directly using Class Dojo.  However, please be patient as we are teaching in the morning so we may not be able to help you out straight away; it may be in the afternoon.


Please continue to share photos of what you've been up to as well as any learning you have done - Anything to keep us Y6 teachers on our toes and busy!


We can't wait to see you whether it's virtual or in person.

Last week activities!


If school were open, these last few days would be spent either in transition at your secondary school, or if we were at Emmanuel, we would be completing activities celebrating your successes and sharing memories of your time at Emmanuel/ Waterthorpe.


So this week, although there are maths and SPaG activities available to you (if you wish to do these), we are setting you more open-ended work. Pick and choose what you fancy doing! And remember to smile and have fun as much as possible!!


  1. Write a memoir/ diary entry outlining your time at Emmanuel. What has been your best memory? Do you have any funny anecdotes / stories?
  2. Write a letter to one of your previous teachers and post it to school (see the website for the address)
  3. Complete a research topic on ANYTHING you are interested in: Sheffield United (Mrs Hague would love you for it!), WW2, another country, instructions on how to complete the newest dance… the possibilities are endless! You don’t have to write this, it could be a vlog (which you could post onto your portfolio).
  4. Art project (for you Niamh and Sophie!!!). I’m leaving this open to you. If you need pointers, why not try the work of a famous artist (Monet, Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, Da Vinci). We would have been looking at Frida Kahlo’s art this term, so you could mimmick one of her pieces of art. Alternatively, why not google ‘step by step’ art or a ‘how to draw…’
  5. Write a poem to your future self: outline all of your excitement and dreams. You could call it ‘I wonder…’ and start each line with those words…


I wonder if I will be a vet,

I wonder if I will have twenty-three pets,

I wonder if I will learn to cook a meal,

I wonder what I will look like, and how I will feel…
