Good morning Year 6. I hope you are all feeling full of beans and ready for another full day of learning. Keep up your amazing hard work.
Today's timetable looks like this:
These are suggested times (apart from the Zoom lessons), so fit your learning in when works best for you and your family.
The details of our morning and afternoon zoom sessions have been emailed to your parents - and to any email addresses I have for you individually. Please use these details to join the meeting - as I am no longer able to put the meeting information on the class page.
Today we will be looking closely at diary entries. We'll be understanding why people write diary entries and what the main features of a diary entry are.
Watch the video - and follow the instructions the teacher (Mr Brown) gives you. Pause the video to do the activities and then complete the independent work at the end of the lesson

Afternoon lesson - RE
‘Communion’ means ‘being at one with’. The celebration of the Eucharist is a sign of being at one with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as well as being at one with one another. It is about God making the world holy and of people offering worship to God.
In year 5, you learnt how the Eucharist is a memorial of Jesus’ sacrifice. Jesus’ sacrifice unites the whole Church, those in Heaven and those on earth and makes it one Church. That is why, in the Eucharist, prayer reference is made to Mary and all the saints.
There are three Eucharistic Prayers written specially for children. This is the text of the third. Once you have read it, you can watch it on the video below:
Eucharistic Prayer for Children III
Priest: Jesus now lives with you in glory, but he is also here on earth, among us. We thank you and say:
All: Glory to God in the highest.
Priest: One day he will come in glory, and in his kingdom, there will be no more suffering, no more tears, no more sadness. We thank you and say:
All: Glory to God in the highest.
Priest: Father in heaven, you have called us to receive the Body and Blood of Christ at this table and to be filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Through this sacred meal give us strength to please you more and more. Lord, our God, remember N…., our Pope, N……our bishop, and all other bishops. Help all who follow Jesus to work for peace and to bring happiness to others. Bring us all at last together with Mary, the Mother of God, and all the saints, to live with you and to be one with Christ in heaven.
(The priest takes the chalice and the paten with the host and lifting them up, he sings or says:)
Through him, with him, in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all glory and honour is yours, Almighty Father, for ever and ever.
Look at these key questions and answer them in your book:
- Which are your favourite words or phrases and why?
- Was there a word or phrase which made you think more deeply? Why?
- How do you think being in communion with Jesus Christ and his Church might make a difference to your life?
Design a poster showing all the ways in which you can work for the peace and unity of your family, class and/or school today. Make links in your poster to some of the phrases from the Eucharistic Prayer for Children III and your own experience and feelings.
