From your own research, what can you find out about Ancient Greek soldiers. This includes their armour, weapons, boats, how their army was structured, why were they so powerful, how did their boats attack enemy boats?
I have attached a google document with some images or you can find your own. You can add your information to this or you can present your findings in another way such as a word document or you can write it on paper.
A title, subheadings, pictures and captions, fact boxes.
Subordinate conjunctions, technical vocabulary, past tense verbs, third person pronouns.
This is due by the end of Wednesday.
Sometimes we want to add a bit of extra information to a sentence as an afterthought. If we left out this extra word or phrase, the main sentence would still make sense. This is called parenthesis.
There’s an example of parenthesis in the title of this worksheet!
For each of these sentences, can you add a parenthesis in the space? There’s a hint word to help you think what to write.
Have a look at these examples.
e.g. My brother_________________________ never brushes his hair! [hint: cool]
My brother (who thinks he’s really cool) never brushes his hair!
e.g. My brother___________________________never brushes his hair! [hint: name?]
My brother (who’s called Jason) never brushes his hair!
1. I watched a horror film_____________ and it really scared me! [hint: title?]
2. Dinosaurs______________were a type of reptile. [hint: extinct]
3. We’re not allowed peanut butter sandwiches__________________ in school because there’s a girl who’s allergic to nuts. [hint: packed lunch]
4. The bats_________________sleep in our attic during the day. [hint: nocturnal]
5. I lost my phone____________________ when we went on the Thunder Roller ride. [hint: birthday present]
6. We made popcorn__________________ for my birthday party. [hint: type?]
7. Simone________________________ doesn’t speak much English yet. [hint: from where?]
8. We were helping the caretaker________________to carry all the chairs into the hall. [hint: back ache]
Now write three sentences of your own. Each one should be a complex sentence and include a parenthetical piece of information. Remember to use brackets!
Make a bug hotel.
Good evening 6B I hope you are all well. I have heard that some of you are feeling poorly and I want to wish you a speedy recovery!
I will be blogging daily so you can comment and let me know what you have been getting up to.
See you all soon.
Let’s get blogging!

This year, we shared a book called 'Tidy', written by Emily Gravett. It follows the story of Pete the Badger who tidys his forest to the point of no return. It highlighted the issue of responsible waste disposal, and wider issues relating to the environment. We enjoyed a range of activities that included re-writing the text, and trying to predict what the story was about. We discussed climate change and how we can have a positive impact on our own local area, making pledges to form a whole school display. A number of different pieces of art were also created to celebrate the day. Take a look at some of our work below...
In year 6 we had a break from SATs preparation and completed our bike ability training, each class spent two days completing either level one or level two qualification. All 92 children in year 6 can now ride a bike confidently!
Because of our excellent attitude and ability, we were also given the opportunity to do level three bike ability for free. This is not usually done until children reach high school, however the bike ability staff thought some of our children were ready for this early. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and are proud of our achievements.
This week in art we have been learning to use oil pastel techniques. Check out our books.
