Maths Challenge – you will need a pack of cards or a set of cards from 0 -9

Place all the cards face down, take turns to try and collect pairs of cards which total 10. The person with the most pairs at the end is the winner.

Draw 10 fluffy round clouds and turn them into simple little sheep. If you have any cotton wool balls and glue you could stick them on to make them extra fluffy. Cut out your 10 sheep. Put them in a line and count them making
sure you say 1 number name for each sheep counting left to right. Using your shape and construction skills, use any of your construction toys at home to design a sheep pen to keep them all safe in. Keep them in the pen (don’t let them escape!) Use your sheep to work out the pairs of numbers which make 10 by moving one out of the pen at a time eg. 9 +1 =10, 8 +2- 10 saying each number sentence as you go.

Year 6 Ocean Art

June 8 was World Oceans Day—a global celebration of the lungs of our planet, and all the creatures who inhabit it. The worldwide movement aims to raise awareness of the importance of ocean conservation.

Many people around the world are doing their part to save our seas, including contemporary artists. Through their art, they create powerful visualizations that pay homage to the beauty of the ocean, but also showcase the devastating effects of human impact.

What does the ocean mean to you?

Use their art to inspire a drawing, painting or sculpture called ‘My Ocean’.

Artist 1 – Mlle Hipolyte

French artist Mlle Hipolyte sculpts vibrant, three-dimensional structures from colored paper that mimic coral reefs. Her artwork is made by hand using various paper craft techniques, including quilling, scoring, and 3D modeling.

Artist 2 – Vanessa Barragão

Artist 3 – Aude Bourgine

Artist 4 – Courtney Mattison

Courtney Mattison creates ceramic sculptures that promote the “protection of our blue planet.” While the central pieces appear colorful and abundant, the outer elements are sparse and white, visualizing the long-term effects of coral bleaching.
