I hope you are all enjoying the glorious sunshine on this Bank Holiday Monday; the weather for the week ahead promises to be good.

As it is the half term holiday this week I will not be setting you any new work. I rather hope that you will be able to make the most of the wonderful weather and get outside in the fresh air. 

Enjoy a break from your home learning, keep well, stay safe and I will upload some new work for you next Monday.

Missing you all,

Mrs Tully

Gods and goddesses were central to life in Ancient Greece. Can you find out about a favourite god or goddess and then design your own ... If you were a god or goddess what would you look like? What would be your expertise? Would you be the goddess of horses? The god of healing? Hmmmm, so many options. Think about all the things that are important to you and base your design around that. Take inspiration from the Ancient Greek gods and goddesses.

It can be quite confusing working who's who so here's an introduction:

Did you know that we know so much about life in Ancient Greece because of the amazing vases and pottery found by archaeologists. On the sides of the earthenware are beautiful depictions of everyday activities and beliefs so we have a fantastic idea about what people got up to. Can you design your own vase showing life in the UK or Slindon School today? What activities are important to include? If an archaeologist found your pot in 2,000 years time how will they know how we lived?

During the school closure, children in Chestnut class should continue with their usual home learning tasks:

  • Reading for half an hour daily;
  • Completing reading activities of your choice from the sheet in your home learning book;
  • Practising your times tables on TTRS;
  • Learning to spell the common exception words identified in your home learning book and any others you cannot spell yet;
  • Completing your Take-away-Task for this half term

Why not keep a diary (like Anne Frank) whilst, like her, you are unable to come to school.

You may also use any of the resources in the attached documents to keep you busy and learning!

If you wish, you may also look at the resources available for Acorns and Catkins classes if these are more suitable for you.

Year 6 children who chose to have SATs resource books to work through at home, keep using these.
