Hello Year 6.
How are you all today? It has been so lovely to see your wonderful portraits last week, we are very lucky t have such a talented group of artists in our year group. We have placed a selection of these in the gallery.
Today we have placed some hymns and songs on the Home Learning area for you to sing at home, along with a new task in the music section.
As the churches are closed at the moment, we know that you are continuing to pray with your families at home. It is important that we continue to follow Jesus. To help you do this we have created an R.E. page on the home learning area. As the Holy Week approaches, please use these tasks. There will be further details in the newsletter tomorrow.
Don't forget that you can email us using the email address email@example.com
Keep up all the hard work and keep safe.
All our best
Mr Campling, Mrs Todd and Mrs Cattini.

Friday - Art.
Last week we asked you to draw a family member in the style of David Hockney. Today we would like you to create a self portrait. This could be completed using a mirror, or you could take a picture of yourself (Known as a 'selfie') using a tablet or phone.
Have a look through the PowerPoint below to give you some ideas of some famous self portraits. We look forward to seeing these, and creating a new gallery of Year 6 artwork.
Watch the video clip (Link below). Then write a short paragraph to show how mountains are formed over many years.
You can add illustrations and diagrams too if you wish.
You can then send this through to your teachers if you wish via firstname.lastname@example.org
You can choose from the following activities – or do all of them!
Continue to log onto the Charanga website charanga.com/yumu using your Username and Password given to you on a sticker by your teacher. If you do not have this email, contact Mrs Romhany via Music@st-helens-jun.essex.sch.uk or via the link on the ‘Contact teachers’ section and I will email it to you.
I can see many of you have been using the Recorder book ‘Blown Away’ – Remember to start from the beginning and work steadily through. That way you can work on your technique (making a good sound and covering the holes.) Why not keep a tick list of the pieces you have played, so you can show me back at school or you can email it to me?
Continue to look at the topic I have shared: ‘Happy’. Go through the topic, starting with Step 1, singing the song and doing the warm up games. You can move on further if you wish! Step 2 involves playing your instruments, which can be recorder, keyboard, violin, flute etc.
I have added some more to Charanga. I could see lots of you were enjoying your singing, so there are lots of new songs under ‘Assignments’ – at the very bottom; some pop, some film and theatre – something for everyone!
If you are interested in a particular instrument, I have added the guitar, keyboard or violin course.
Keep singing and playing! And involve your family too!
