Message from Mrs McQuiggan and Mrs Johnson

Hello Year 6,


We hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and well.  Monday morning should have been a very different one to the one that we are experiencing right now as we should have been setting off for our residential at Lakeside, Windermere.  We are really sad that this can’t happen and we are sure you are too but we thought it would be nice for you to try and recreate some of the experiences that we would have had whilst there. Team building is an important aspect of any residential and we would have been completing various tasks based on this whilst at Lakeside. Therefore, we have included a section called ‘Team Building’ in our ‘Additional Activities’ section this week. Here, you will find some instructions for team building games that you might like to play with your family at home. Please read the safety information provided first and always check with an adult before taking part in the activities. In addition, you could always toast some marshmallows and sit outside with your family and tell your favourite jokes. Or you could arrange a movie night or even organise your own obstacle course. We know it isn’t the same and we wish we could all be together at Lakeside but it might be fun to take part in some of these activities this week. We would love to see any pictures you take so please either email us or tweet them.


It was lovely to catch up with so many of you during the week and great to hear about all of the wonderful things you have been doing whilst at home. We will be contacting those who we didn’t manage to speak to during this week.


The activities provided include Philosophy questions, Maths, 4-a-Day, Problems of the Day, SPAG, English, RE, PSHE, Computing, Spanish, Science and Art. Like we always say, you may choose some activities and spend longer completing these than is stated on the suggested timetable - this is absolutely fine.  In addition, as always, we have added some extra activities that you might like to complete (found in the Additional Activities section).The mindfulness activities are good for your relaxation time.


Well done once again for keeping up with your reading. Remember, reading for around 20 minutes each day makes a real difference.  Thank you to those who have been continuing to use Epic! Reading. I can see that some of you are really enjoying using this online resource. Remember, you might like to email us to let us know which books you have enjoyed reading the most.


You will see that your PSHE work this week is based on health and well-being. We have been doing a lot of work on this area recently and we hope that the materials that have been provided offer you support during this difficult time. We have uploaded a toolkit which contains different links for you to use. There are a variety of activities as well as videos that you can watch. In addition, there are some sections that you might like to use with your parents – they provide great discussions.


On Thursday 18th June, between 10am-10:15am, CAFOD are hosting a national assembly based on the theme, 'Creating a hopeful summer'. They invite us all to join them online to hear how the lives of others around the world are being impacted by coronavirus. Please see the link on the RE section of our work this week to access the assembly.


We would also like to remind you that you have the RE competition to enter should you wish to do so. We look forward to receiving your entries by Friday 10th July for your chance to win a £10 voucher in our local competition and £25 in the overall national competition.


As we can’t take part in our annual Sports Day this year, Mrs Liggat has signed us up to take part in The Rainbow Games, which is a national event that will be running from Saturday 20th June until Friday 26th June. Please see the PE section of our work this week for more details.


Thank you once again for your tweets, we really enjoy seeing them. Please continue to try to tweet any work that you are proud of. Don’t forget to use the handle @StBellarmine and #Y6SRB.


We continue to miss you all so much but want to thank you once again for your fantastic efforts whilst at home. We are so proud of each one of you for trying your very best. Keep up the good work! Please remember to say a huge thank you to your parents who are doing a wonderful job supporting you, we really appreciate it and know you do too!


Take care and stay safe.


Lots of love,

Mrs McQuiggan and Mrs Johnson xx
