Week Commencing 27.04.20

Welcome to week 2. Thank you for the emails and the pictures of your endeavours, projects and updates; please keep them coming, they are really nice to receive.

Behind the scenes, I have been exchanging emails and talking to Malmesbury and Royal Wootton Bassett Academy’s to discuss transition arrangements. This week Malmesbury launched a dedicated page for Y6 Transition on their school website ( under the tab Students. At present, there are videos about the school and the Year 7 experience, a short video message from Rupert Moreton, the incoming head teacher, and information about uniform and peripatetic music lessons. There will shortly be a PowerPoint as well, which covers the things that Mrs Wood would normally talk about when she comes in to visit you. As soon as I hear any further information, I will pass it on to you.

Follow this link to watch a BBC video on the heart and the circulation system. It includes an introduction to the human heart, its location within the human body and its function as a pump. Once you have watched, the clip complete the attached worksheet.


We have created many time lines in year 6 to help us develop an understanding the sequence, pace and historically significant moments. They are a great way to encourage you to develop your research skills and inquisitive minds. So, following on from last week’s research, I would like you to create a timeline on the history of computing. Include any major events and anything you find interesting.


Below is a link to this week’s RE lesson. It explores the Jewish day of rest, which is called Shabbat, with the associated lesson ideas


As a school, every class will be looking at the same resource called ‘The Big Idea Weekly Challenge’. Details of the challenges can be found on the school website.

Art and DT

This week’s challenge is to make a model of the human heart using any materials you like. I have included a link to a website that demonstrates how to make your own playdough but feel free to be creative.



Continuing with the programming theme, I have set up 5 more To Dos on Purple Mash building on last weeks learning.
