Week Starting 14 June 2020

Welcome to week 8 of Year 6 learning!

LIVE lessons

Thank you so much to all of you who joined the LIVE science session last Wednesday.  We had a staggering 110 participants!!

It is wonderful that so many of you were able to join us this week and hope that even more will join our live lesson next week – Maybe we can get over 150 participants this week???

We know that many more of you tried to join – we’d like to apologise for the teething problems with the new technology and thank you for your patience.  Please contact your class teacher via your class blog or email yr6@pegasusacademytrust.org outlining the nature of the problem you had logging in and hopefully we can resolve the issue so that you can join the next LIVE lesson.

Our next live lesson will be at 11am on Wednesday 17th June when Mrs O’Connor will be hosting another LIVE lesson, this time carrying on with our new Science topic: The Human Body.  In this lesson you will learn all about the heart.

This week, in addition to the mathematics tasks and English tasks, we will be learning about the boy Pharaoh, Tutankhamun, and the discovery of his tomb.

Here is an overview of this week’s learning:

Why not have a go at the Trust-wide task for this week?

This week’s challenge is to create a quiz.  You could keep it simple and write ten questions on a topic of your choice or you could create a photo quiz to see if your friends and family can guess the item or character from a photo showing only a small part of it.  You could write a ‘What am I?’ quiz – write 3 clues and see who can guess what or who you are.

Ms Sampson absolutely loves quizzes and is our official Pegasus Academy Trust Quizmaster – perhaps she will use one of your excellent creations for her next quiz meeting.   Don’t forget to email them to your home learning email address or post them on your blog.
