A message to year 6 from Mrs Allen, Mrs S Ahmed and Mr Raven-Hill

A Poem for Fixby Year 6 children - class of 2020 heart

Today is the day that SATs would have started,
The classroom set up and the tables parted,
The rules on the board, the display walls all covered,
Your workbooks away, out of sight in the cupboard,
Instead you are home, you’re doing your bit,
Protecting your families from getting sick,
It’s important right now, we’re in lockdown you see,
Being a part of world history,
You’ve all worked so hard, you should be so proud,
You’ve practised your SPAG and times tables out loud,
You’ve learnt algebra to the Nth degree,
And now the tests, they will no longer be,
Some may be sad that they can’t take the tests,
“Hip hip hooray,” I’ve no doubt said the rest,
Whilst the tests are on hold and you stay home this term,
Remember that tests can’t measure everything you learn,
And I don’t need SATs results to tell me,
How hard you have worked, it’s easy to see,
'Lockdown' Year 6, let me shout it out loud,
You’ve made all your teachers so very proud,
So please continue to learn, fill that brain up full,
And remember, we think you’re all wonderful! heart

Good morning 5/6AA.  What a lovely way to start your day - with a poem.  Today would have been very different if we were still at school, but as the poem said remember that you are making history.  I am in the middle of writing your reports at the moment, so I have been thinking about you a lot.  Today I would like you to make the most of this extra time with your family (but get your school work done as well smiley). So, before we start, go and give everyone in your house a big hug.  Now that you have done that, here are your tasks for today:

Afternoon work

Open the file called Martian Alien.  Have a look at the alien that has been designed to be able to survive on Mars. This alien has features that help it to survive the freezing temperatures, weak gravity and thin atmosphere of Mars.  Now open the Mercury factfile.  Look at its gravity, atmosphere and temperature.  Now design your own alien that will be able to survive on Mercury.  Label each of the features that help it to survive.
