Year Six Snow Day Work
I hope you've had fun in the snow over the past two days. It's time to get back to some work now, though...
1) Think about everything we've read so far in The Queen Must Die by K.A.S. Quinn. (Google 'queen must die google books' for an online version of the first few chapters). You can note your answers in your homework books, we will discuss your answers in class next week.
- Note down the five key events that have happened so far in the story. It might help to note down any events you can remember and then choose the most significant events and arrange them in chronological order.
- Think about the upcoming chapter, the royal family are going to make an impromptu visit to the building of the Crystal Palace. Why do you think the author is sending the family there all of a sudden? What might happen there?
- Think about Bernardo DuQuelle. We now know he is on Katie and Alice's side. How did the author make the reader feel suspicious of him earlier in the book? Why did she do this?
- Choose your favourite character. Sketch what you think they might look like, you can use description given in the text or simply draw how they appear to you in your own mind. Create a mini fact file to accompany the sketch. List the following: their favourite place, their greatest fear, their proudest achievement, and their biggest regret. You will need to use your own imagination to do this, although your answers should fit with the characters we've come to know.
2) Practise for next week's World Maths Day by warming up on Mathletics. We will be having another week-long competition to find the highest scoring class and students in the school! You will find a few activities relating to our last topic of ratio to complete for homework.
3) Spend time reading your home reading books.
4) Learn you spellings for your test next Thursday, click on the link below. They are all linked to our Laudato Si Week work.
PGL Day 4
It's been a very busy day here at PGL and we're not ready to go home just yet! Today's activities included Rock Climbing, Tunnel Trail, Trapeze and the highly anticipated Giant Swing. We received a visit from Mrs Lavelle who arrived with lots of goodies and letters (and rain). We have enough sweets to keep us going until Christmas!! As this is being posted, we are at the PGL Disco turning red with embarrassment as Miss Kennedy and Mr Mc Cormack show off their best moves on the dance floor.
Although we have had a great week here at PGL, we can't wait to see you all tomorrow. Enjoy your last night of peace and quiet!!!!!
PGL Day 3
We've had another great day here at PGL. Activities today included canoeing, a challenge course, abseiling, Survivor, etc. Our activity tonight is PGL Sports Night. Some of us managed to visit the PGL shop today which was very exciting. More photographs to follow tomorrow.
PGL Day 2
We have almost finished our first full day of activities and we are all enjoying every minute! Archery, canoeing, zip wire, raft building and Jacob's Ladder are just some of the activities we completed today. Everyone is still smiling, even Johrel and Cyrus who have less teeth in their mouth since they left Good Shepherd. They forgot to tell the tooth fairy that they were going away but we are sure there'll be a pound or two tucked safely under their pillows once they arrive home on Friday. More updates to come tomorrow evening.
PGL Day 1
We've arrived!! We are already having such a great time and the food here is delicious. More photos to follow tomorrow evening!
