Mental Health Resources – UPDATED WEDNESDAY 13th MAY
Here you can find some useful resources to help foster conversations with your children about their mental health and wellbeing during what is, and continues to be a strange and potentially frightening time for children and adults alike. This lesson from the PSHE association is all about feelings and emotions and will help children recognise different feelings about things and situations, and will explain who can help them with their feelings.
This resource is a great starting point to check in with your kids on how they are feeling about the current situation. If you want to talk about anything at all regarding your child’s education, their mental health or anything at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me on Class Dojo or via email.

Wednesday 10th June – Introducing: LIFE, The Game
This game has taken Y6 by storm in school, and now it’s your chance to try your hand at being a fully fledged grown up. the video explains everything, stick with it. You might need a little help from your parents on this one. There are a few websites you need, they’re linked below. If you need a password to get to any of the spinny wheels, it is Johnson2805. Do not edit the wheels!!!!!!!
I forgot to say, each real time day (which represents a week in the game) you have a bad event or a good event, each cost money. To determine if you have a bad week or a good week (in the game) click here. If you get a bad event, you can record a sad face, if you get a happy event you can record a smiley face (or a smiley face for your children if the good event applies to them!) You want to finish the game in a few weeks with as many smiley faces as possible. You also get smiley faces if you manage to save money at the end of the month.
Additional Money (only click this one once a real time week – remember you don’t have to accept the spin outcome of this, for example you don’t have to get a credit card… And if you do you will need to add 17% on to whatever you borrow)

Hi everyone, thanks to those of you who have sent in your VE Day work already, there is some brilliant stuff being produced – well done! Here is a bit of a ‘from home’ darts challenge to get stuck in to! Good luck!
Monday 4th May – A little bit of everything PLUS THE RAP!
Thanks for this challenge Freya… I am challenging anybody in Year 6 who hasn’t rapped for us yet! I would also like to urge you to challenge Mr. Beckwith as, somehow, he has set this challenge for the school and managed to get away without having to rap a single bar yet!!
Scroll down to find the videos you need.
Friday 1st May – The battle continues…
Friday 1st May – The next level
Tuesday 28th April – Mean Maths
Hello Year 6. It will be Wednesday by the time you see this, I’m sorry about that! First of all, thanks to Alanah for the brilliant rap video. The rest of you have a lot to live up to, I’m looking forward to seeing / hearing what you have got! Okay, on to the video. As I mention on camera, I would like for you to find the mean for each 3 darts Mr. Kelly & I throw. The mean is a common way of finding the average. If you can’t remember how to find the mean, you must add all of the numbers together, and then divide by the amount of numbers you have added (in this case, 3). So if I score a 3, a 2 and a 1 (as if!) then you will calculate 3+2+1… and then divide the answer by the amount of numbers you have added together, which is 3… So your calculation will be 6 divided by 3… Giving the answer of 2, so the mean / average score is 2. If you want to have a go at the Year 5 challenge about negative numbers as well, give it a go! If you do the Year 5 challenge, have a go at writing a word problem for the various questions you are provided with. Enjoy 🙂
Monday 27th April – Challenge
Thursday 23rd April – Workout Challenge / Plea for help from Penny and me!
I rambled on a bit in this video, so here is a little recap…
- Create a 30 minute workout
- Let me know how long to do each exercise for
- Let me know how long I am allowed to rest between exercises
- Calculate how many calories each exercise burns using this website
- Calculate how many calories the workout will burn overall
- And I forgot to mention… Use this website to suggest a healthy meal that will help me re-fuel after my workout… I would like to eat roughly the same amount of calories as my workout burns!
- And finally, don’t forget, you ned to be able to do the workout too, so don’t tell me to do a million press-ups if you haven’t done a million press-ups first!
Can’t wait to see what you come up with – you can send me the workout plan in whatever format you like!
Miss Martin and Mrs Trevis’ rallying challenge!
