Mr Nodder

Half Term Homework.

Can you draw a picture of what you imagine a Gigantrak would look like?

 Wildspark (Vashti Hardy) Extract p 27:

‘The Gigantrak was an enormous metal hulk as tall as three houses, its great pipes, cylinders and panels were like a huge insect’s exoskeleton. Steam poured from the frontal spout while mechanics busily checked wheels as high as an old oak tree.’


Fiction Express

Using your login (stuck in your homework book)

Choose a book and read it. Write a book review to tell the class about it when you get back to school after half term. Is it worth the read? Why did you choose it? Characters you liked characters you didn’t etc. Complete some of the activities that accompany the book.


Visit a peaceful place in Shropshire. (your garden or further afield)

Where did you go? What could you hear? What could you see? How did you feel? Who were you with? A photo would be great. A painting/sketch of your view even better!

Email to us.  Enjoy your half term.

We have had a focus on times tables this week and this will continue for the next few weeks. On here the children have been shown how to record their progress and to print out a sheet with their tables report on. This will go in their homework books for Wednesday. 



Fantasy Football

This year, due to the football season starting later, we are able to run a school Fantasy Football league. Its a bit of fun for those who love football so use the code to join the Y6 league.                  League code:  we3kqq
