It’s that time of the week – Friday means Arithmetic!

Test 1 today – good luck!

Are you improving over the week?

Are there any methods or types of questions you are unsure of? Or equally, are there any methods or types of questions you are brilliant at?

The Demon Headmaster is a well known book by Gillian Cross.


The plot is about a headteacher who can hypnotize the pupils in his school to make them behave like robots. This is a secret of course! You can watch the series on BBC iplayer-here is the link. 


You have already created your own sinister head teacher character.

You have placed them in a setting.

Today I would like to write about the moment a new pupil learns about the headteacher's special powers or evil conduct. Use ideas from The Demon Headteacher and Mrs Trunchball or other books read but create your own narrative. 

Aim to use the skills we have revised this week:brackets, complex sentences and synonyms. 

I think these are going to be fun to read. Please send to Year6@overseal.derbyshire.sch.uk


Mindfulness Friday. Try one of these activities whichever you choose! Send me any pictures to Year6@overseal.derbyshire.sch.uk

Geography: Fair trade

Today Watch this powerpoint about Fair trade. Even better you can carry our your own research about fairtrade. Then go to 2DO on Purplemash and create a poster with information on about Fairtrade. This builds on your knowledge about human geography and trade and economy. The hand in for this work is Tuesday 9th June.
