Here is a showcase of the fantastic work submitted this week! Please keep these coming, it is lovely to see all of the hard work you are putting into your home learning activities!
2.6 Challenge –
You may have heard of the 2.6 Challenge, which has been set up to support charities who have lost billions of pounds following the cancellation of fundraising events such as the London Marathon due to coronavirus. To take part in the 2.6 Challenge (named because the London Marathon is just over 26 miles long and was due to take place on the 26th of April this year) you must complete any physical activity you like that involves the numbers 2.6 or 26 (or even 260!). The children responded fantastically and here are some of the activities.
A huge well done to all of the children who took part. After lots of deliberation, I have decided that Jacob E is the winner and I will make a donation to a charity of his choice. Well done Jacob.
Creative writing task – The children were asked to continue the story about a creature from the deep. They worked really hard and impressed with their use of vocabulary.
Fear gripping my heart, I ran as fast as I could. Only the midnight stars would tell if I survived – and if they’d told me, I wouldn’t have been pleased. As I darted away, I noticed a thick, oozing tentacle rip a door of a nearby house. At that moment, I knew I had no choice.
Squinting in the little light, I noticed a fishing net propped next to a curious sheet of rubber on the wall. Confused, I studied the sheet. It was crinkled, as if it had been blown up. Then I realised…
It was a raft!
With help from my overriding anxiety, I managed to inflate the raft. When I dashed back outside, I was hunched with the force of the rain. It was as if the huge cephalopod was controlling it. However, as I reached the water’s edge, I lost my balance, dropped the raft and plunged into the icy waves.As the sky lit up above me, I was sure the bolt would destroy me, I was snatched away by someone.. Or something. – Harry
Once there were no more remaining people on the streets, a fearless soldier named Sergeant Ben Paul needed time to act. He gathered his men from all over the country who he had fought with in previous battles against creatures, but not like this one. His troops arrived the next day, ready for battle. They sharpened swords, loaded guns and built armor. After breakfast, all the men climbed into trucks, army jets and big ocean boats armed to the teeth with missiles. Sergeant Ben Paul loaded his assault rifle and climbed into his truck with four other men. Two were in the front and two were on the back of the vehicle holding onto small ladders, with their pistols at the ready. This would be the battle of their lives. The city was counting on them to save them.
Once they’d arrived, they saw the sea monster climbing a tall building. The soldiers in the jet planes began firing missiles. Then, the Sergeant threw a rope on one of its tentacles and climbed up to its face. After he’d climbed up, he started shooting it. Suddenly, one of the jet’s missiles, hit him and the Sergeant fell off. The lower he got the faster he fell. Then, BOOSH! He hit the floor. In anger the monster started lashing out, smacking all the jets, stomping on all the trucks and finally earning its victory… – Joseph
Coordination Games – The children were challenged with some coordination and ball games this week. It looks like they had great fun and lots of giggles along the way.
And last but not least, musical talents! The children were tasked with providing evidence of their musical talents and they did not disappoint. We had some singing, instrument skills and lots of song writing. A huge well done to everyone.
A huge well done to everyone this week!

Good morning everyone. I hope that you are all well. As per Mr Harris’ email, home learning packs will be available to collect from school this morning. If you are unable to collect the packs will either be delivered by a member of staff or posted out to you. The packs contain further White Rose maths sheets to support the Google Classroom assignments, some science worksheets and some guided reading materials. I will post assignments on Google Classroom to inform children when they need to do each sheet in their pack. I hope that you find these useful and supportive; please let me know if you need any further help.
Today’s learning tasks:
- Maths task
- Draw with Rob
There are a number of tasks from this week which are due in today. I would like children to ensure that they have completed these tasks if possible.
- Geography continents
- Musical talents (if they want to submit)
- What does the heart do?
- Writing task – creature from the deep story
- Read aloud assignment on Fluency Tutor
Don’t worry if you are unable to complete every assignment; all that we ask is that the children try their best.
I will post a blog later today or during the day Saturday showcasing the work the children have produced this week. I am receiving some outstanding work and once again would like to say how proud I am of the children. Well done 6J!

Good morning everyone and I hope you had an enjoyable weekend in the sun. I am looking forward to seeing the work produced by the children this week and would like to thank you again for you support with this.
We have added a section to the Farsley Farfield website with some excellent relaxation strategies and activities. I know lots of the children enjoyed the relaxation activity I set for them last week and it would be great if you could have a look at the page on the website. Here is the link:
Today’s learning tasks on Google Classroom are:
• SPaG – verbs and modal verbs
• 2.6 challenge (PE related)
• Maths task
• Musical talents
Some children also need to do a recording of their reading – these assignments were set on Friday last week. Please try to encourage children to complete this if they can – it would be lovely to hear them read.
I am also going to hold a Google Meet today @11am and would love to see everyone involved.
Please don’t forget about the other resources out their – this could offer some variety and child led learning. I have set new assignments on Mathletics which I would like children to try and complete by the end of this week. Here are a list of websites which have useful resources on:
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need any assistance or support,

Here is a showcase of some of the amazing work the children have completed this week.
Art (Draw with Rob and Window art)
The children also had the opportunity to construct some unusual stories this week. Here are a few to read – you could ask them about the prompts they were given…
The alarm clock glared at the lipgloss. It plotted its moves in its head run, leap, swing of the piece of fabric, backflip and the alarm clock would make it. He started sprinting towards the dresser, the alarm clock knew this would be easy. Just as he was about to jump, the peg waddled into sight. “Noooooo!”screamed alarm clock. Mid air he punched peg in his face and scurried to the drawers. Suddenly he felt a tug from behind. He crashed to the floor and blacked out. When he woke up he saw the peg waddle past him with the red, ruby lip gloss. Peg tripped, alarm clock leaped, the lipgloss fell and rolled right to the alarm clock’s feet. Out of the corner of his eye he saw Peg coming behind him. It was just about to hit 8:00am RRRRRRIIIIIINNNNNGGGGGGG. The alarm clock let out a loud noise, blowing the peg to the other end of the room. I knew I could do it through the alarm clock. Daisy
As the rooster lay, content in his box of golden cereal, he was unaware of the precious milk being illegally exported from the kitchen. The hen, however, was very much aware of the smuggling of the drink. For it was her who was stealing it! She had robbed the cow on it’s packet. The rooster soon found out about the heist and set out to solve the problem. He brought a sword of cereal and took the hen captive in the microwave, never to be seen again. The world was saved. Max D
Once there lived a whole world after night where teddies older than 5 and eraser older than 6 awoke. Ted ( the sheep teddy bear) had finally awoke and they all knew he was special because he was 4 when he awoke. They showed him to the bed a part of any human bed so they went under the bed. Going under the bed they approached a whole new world which is called toy land. Toy land is where all the animal teddie, toys and rubbers come to see each other and be alive but there’s been some toys going missing and they don’t know why. Wells Ted is there and he meets a kind heart rabbit rubber who shows him around the rabbit is called Rebecca. Hours of playing and talking made them close to each other then all of a sudden Rebecca goes missing and Ted decides to investigate he has another rabbit rubber (Richard) help him. They realised a pattern. The only bit that doesn’t make sense is why Rebecca went missing instead of Ted because it was always the new toys. Next time a new toy entered the toy land they secretly followed the toy until the toy disappeared so they followed him to a portal to see … Rebecca made them her slaves!
“How could you do this?” Ted shouted. As fast as lightning he grabbed her and they banned her from ever going to toy land before. All the toys were released from the jail and Ted found a new best friend Richard. Svana

What a successful week we have had in 6J. I have been really impressed with the children’s attitude towards their learning and their exemplary behaviour during the Google Meet sessions we have been having. I hope to see this continue.
I will be hosting another Google Meet today @11am for the children to join. We had 18 on Wednesday and it would be lovely to have even more children join today. I have set two on-going challenges at the children’s request:
Extra curricular learning – anything you are doing which you would like to share Window art – the theme changes each week but the children have really enjoyed this so far. I believe there is a Facebook page in Leeds dedicated to selecting the themes (Neighbourhood Window Walk For All Neighbourhoods Near & Far – could be worth joining and even uploading some of the masterpieces I have seen this week).
Today’s tasks are:
- Guided reading and drawing task (Due today)
- Draw with Rob (Due today) Sonic
- Maths task
- PE with Joe
- Complete short stories from yesterday
- Check all other assignments for the week are submitted and completed – don’t worry if they are late.
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy the beautiful Spring weather.
Take care, Miss Jones
