Wednesday 17th

Good morning Year 6. This is Mrs Marley 


As Miss Turner and Mrs Hartfield are now in school, I will now be taking over from them and uploading daily work for you. Please therefore message me on the contact form on Coubertin page if you have any questions about the work or just want to talk. Message me today to say hello so I know who is checking out the work for today. I am excited because I have missed you all this year. Please do keep the photos of you coming in as I would like to see what you are getting up to. They will continue to be added to your class slide show. These photos can be of anything. For example, a picture taken of you doing the work, photos of the completed work, a model you have made out of lego, playing with siblings or perhaps doing some baking in the kitchen. Just click on the upload photo link on your main class page.


I will continue with the topic of Inheritance and Evolution. From what I can see, you have just started this topic so I will start from the beginning.

Read the below story starter ‘The Lighthouse’. Open the document below and complete the activities set. One activity includes drawing a picture from the description in the text.


The Lighthouse

The storm had been raging for hours. Like a besieging army tormenting an enemy’s ramparts, the waves battered on the lighthouse walls.

A group of men huddled in one of the cylindrical shaped rooms, flinching every time a wave rocked the lighthouse. Their hearts were in their mouths with every devastating blow: they half expected the walls to come tumbling down at any moment.

They turned their heads and listened to the sound of the storm. What they heard was truly terrifying…

Reading Activities for The Lighthouse

As always, tune in at 11am to ‘Elevenses’ to hear David Walliams read a story. If you miss any extracts from the week, they will be on the catch up page this coming Saturday, and will be there for a week.
