Home Learning w/c 29/06/20


Hello there - I hope you are keeping up with your daily learning.

As always you need to keep on with the BBC Bitesize Daily lessons; there are three every day - maths, English and another curriculum subject.





This week we are going to find out more about evolution and inheritance. Watch these two videos to find out more and have a go at the activities that go with them:

BBC Bitesize: What is evolution?




BBC Bitesize: What is inheritance?



Now try the activities below. You could print them out or do them on a piece of paper


Don’t forget to read, practise your times tables and exercise daily; take time to ‘chill’ and look after your mental wellbeing too.

Take care and keep smiling.

   Coronavirus - a book for children book coverHave a look at this digital book if you haven't already for primary children and young people about the coronavirus. It has illustrations by Axel Scheffler (the man who illustrates Julia Donaldson's books such as The Gruffalo and Stick Man) and it answers lots of questions and aims to both inform and reassure.


What a good looking bunch!

Home Learning

Here are some pictures you have sent me of the work you have been doing at home. Well done and keep them coming.

We created these fabulous bags as part of our work on Show Racism the Red Card.


We dressed as characters from all sorts of books and shared our favourite stories with each other.



On Wednesday 13th November the Rickshaw Challenge came past our school. The One Show’s Matt Baker and 6 young riders, all of whom have been helped by Children in Need, pedalled from Holyhead to London.

Y6 loved the Rickshaw Challenge with a new route, a new team, and a newly modified rickshaw that went past our school.

A team of six young people and The One Show’s Matt Baker took on an eight-day challenge to cycle 400 miles from Holyhead to London. This year’s route saw the team ride to Flash, the highest village in the UK, and tackle the steepest street in the world in Harlech, Wales.

On the 11th of November Y6 and the rest of the school remembered their lost ones that died in both wars. The school had two minutes of silence in the hall to respect the ending of the First World War at 11:00am..

Meet our new friends.....

On the 24th of October Waingroves Primary School decided to host another pumpkin competition. One child from each class was chosen to be a winner by Ms Bamford and Mrs Tattershaw. Take a look at the Y6 children’s pumpkins. 

Carrot Cookies

We had so much fun baking carrot cookies. Everybody had a fabulous time eating them. It was very messy but it was worth it and everybody got their hands incredibly sticky.

Stand Up Derbyshire

On Friday the 27th October 2019 we had a Stand Up Derbyshire day.

We were all very energetic and did lessons in an active way.
