Year 6 Long Distance Learning 06.07.2020

Hello Year 6,

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 🙂 The Year 6 blog was very quiet last week so I am looking forward to hearing from you this week. Don’t leave it too long – I might forget who you are 😛 Here are your learning activities for this week.

We are immersing ourselves in the city that holds a special place in our hearts – London! You have a chance to get out and about with two fabulous virtual tours. Learn about London’s past by ordering events on a time line. Test your knowledge of London’s landmarks by playing ‘Landmark Bingo’. Have fun! 🙂

‘Coming to England’ also finishes this week with a treat on Friday.

P.E.

Impress your friends and family when you master this ‘Basic Tutting’ routine.

What is ‘tutting’ I hear you ask? The word “tutting” is a street dance style based on angular movements which are supposed to stylise the poses seen in art of ancient Egypt, and refers to “King Tut”.
