Yr 6 - Super Cedars

Welcome to Super Cedars!


Home Learning Information



Hi Super Cedars! I hope you have had a great week at home and enjoyed your transition activities. I have posted another transition booklet to keep you busy this week! 13 different activities! You don't have to do them all, just pick the ones you feel inspired by the most! And I hope it helps you deal with these strange times!

Take a look at our transition page for other things to support you with your last week at Glade Hill. 

I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible on your class Zoom meeting on Wednesday!

Over the next two weeks, home learning will look a little different! We will still be setting you reading and maths work to do on Purple Mash and MyMaths as these are really important subjects to still be studying and practicing before you start Secondary school in September. 

But, we will also be providing you with some other transition activities which we think will help you with your transition from Glade Hill to your new Secondary school. 

I have created a new sub-page where I will add these activities in over the next two weeks so take a look and enjoy them!


I will save any that I can as Word documents so that you can edit them online, so no need to print, but don't forget to send them in to our class email when you've finished them:


If I can't save anything as a Word document, then don't forget - you don't have to print off the sheets, you can use your own paper and write the headings on/ design the layout for yourself and send us a picture instead. 


I am really proud of how hard you have all been working at home, especially on Purple Mash and MyMaths, so keep it up! And I will as always, be sending some badges on Marvellous Me!


Take care,

Mrs Lineker laugh


Here is a link to our class blog. It would be lovely to hear from you on there and you can talk to each other too!

Remember your password is your first and last name with no capital letters and a full stop in the middle (E.g fred.smith). Your password is your first name with a capital letter followed by your purple mash password (E.g Fredcat76).






Mrs. Ozkaya's Book Review 

Hello Super Cedars, I hope you are keeping well and safe. I'm happy to be back in school, joining Miss Marshall and being reunited with some of you.😊


For some of you book lovers, I thought I'd share with you a, range of books, I'm currently reading. The books are called 'Rascal' by Chris Cooper (above slide show). You may also like to read them, as they make easy reading, for pleasure. Abe and I are really enjoying them!

The books are adventure stories, about a dog that gets lost and his journey to get home. In each book, he gets nearer to his owner, but he has to overcome some challenges along the way. They are a bit addictive and we cannot wait to get to the last book, to find out if Rascal makes it home! 🤔

I've added the front covers and blurbs, in the above slide show, so you can take a glimpse. Please look out for them, they can be found, as a set, on Amazon!


Happy reading,

Mrs. Ozkaya. 😊


A huge well done to all the children who took part in the

BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy


BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy are providing daily online lessons for children to access during this time. These would be a great addition to the work the children are already doing and would be good to support them with particularly tricky areas of the curriculum. This week in Maths it is fractions on the Oak National Academy site. Follow the links below to have a look at these great resources!

Miss you loads Super Cedars. Hope to see you very soon with all the stories about what you've been doing with your time.
Keep smiling and keep safe!

Some of the things Mrs. Ozkaya has been up to...

How to make an eco-friendly plant pot.

To make your eco-friendly plant pot all you need is: a toilet roll and scissors. Cut slits along the top of the toilet roll, at an angle, about 1-2 cm wide. Fold the flaps outwards first, to make sure the folds are straight. Then fold all the flaps back to the middle, making sure you tuck in each flap to the next flap, as you go round. There you have your pot. Just fill it with soil or compost and grow your seeds! 😊

Have fun, 

Mrs. Ozkaya


I've been trying out some ideas using simple materials. As I know lots of you like to do craft, I thought I'd show you an easy way to make a concertina 3D leaf. You can then make your own 3D picture, attach them to string, to hang up as a garland or make a card for someone. All you need  to start is paper, glue and scissors. 

Happy crafting! 😊
