Homework 22.1.16

Please remember year 6 of your SATs Buster homework and spellings this week. Did you remember Circumference, Diameter and Radius last week?

Well done for an incredible Poetry week, in year 6 we focussed on Personification and writing personification poems to describe a single object. We then studied the Highway Man: civil

Alfred Noyes (1880-1958)

The Highwayman



THE wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.


He’d a French cocked-hat on his forehead, a bunch of lace at his chin,
A coat of the claret velvet, and breeches of brown doe-skin;
They fitted with never a wrinkle: his boots were up to the thigh!
And he rode with a jewelled twinkle,
His pistol butts a-twinkle,
His rapier hilt a-twinkle, under the jewelled sky.

We then wrote the next verse and practiced reading aloud our prose.

Year 6 also enjoyed writing Haiku, kennings and narrative poems.

Christmas Cards

Year 6 made Christmas cards as part of our D.T project, we will be selling them at our Carols around the Tree tonight and should sell plenty as they amazing!

Upper School Assembly

Remembrance Day Trip 11.11.15

Year six visited Silence in the Square at Trafalgar Square on Wednesday and participated in the two minute silence, the children were fantastic and enjoyed writing their thoughts down before and after the silence. We then took a walk down Whitehall and saw the Cenotaph where many wreaths had been laid. Other highlights was passing the Women in War memorial where children were able to name some of the different jobs women were involved with in the war and we saw where our Prime Minister lives at 10 Downing Street, not to mention the incredible Big Ben that towered over us as we approached Parliament Square. Lunch at St. James’ Park was also memorial as a Goose decided he wanted lunch with us…

Workshop with Tim Hall

Year 6 were treated to a workshop with a man called Tim Hall on Wednesday, Tim specialises in motivational workshops, aimed at telling our year 6 children that they can achieve anything if they practice, if they want to do something they can achieve it and above all listening skills! Year 6 performed a range of team building exercises and the favourite was building a tepee in the top hall. It was fantastic to see children working together to achieve a tricky task! Tim said our year 6 children were some of the best children he has ever worked with – what a compliment, Miss Benharch, Mr Treweeke and Miss Hillard were very impressed!

We also had a visitor from the Urban Studies Centre, who will be working with us on a mini project over the next few weeks. The project will be based on the history of the local area and the school. We have already found out lots of interesting facts! We also looked at old photographs of the local area. Some things have changed a lot but some bit at all. Can anyone from 6J remember one of the things that have changed? Stayed the same? We are looking forward to our local area walk on Thursday where we will be meeting one of the ‘friends of Brompton cemetery’ for a history talk!

Can you believe that Mrs Thompson just solved the pyramid challenge. She won’t tell me how she did it and has left me to figure it out over the weekend.

Some of the challenges were quite tricky and some were a bit easier. Miss Jackson tried her best to complete the pyramid challenge using unifix cubes. Unfortunately, even after half an hour trying, she was unable to build the pyramid using the shapes. The cubes are now on her desk and in her spare time she is still trying. If you have any cubes or building blocks at home, have a go at building the shapes and making the pyramid. Miss Jackson will be very grateful for any advice or assistance that you can provide! 20121005-095341.jpg 20121005-094818.jpg Today we were learning how to say the names of our family members in French.

Hello 6F!

I really hope you are all enjoying your holidays; I can’t believe that we have only a week and a bit left! I wouldn’t want you get bored in the last week of your summer so here is some homework to get your brains warmed up for September: 1. Practice all your times tables – we will be having a test in the first week back. 2. Write a story – this can be about anything you like. Perhaps you could base it on something you have done in the holidays? Or maybe a story with an Olympic theme? It can be any length you want but make sure it has all the features of a story including a clear beginning, build up, middle, resolution and ending. Try to include as much interesting and descriptive vocabulary as you can. 3. Find out some facts about the River Thames – as part of our topic next half term we will be talking about rivers and coasts. Any facts you find out you can write on the blog or on a fact sheet of your own. You don’t have to do it all but it would be a brilliant start to the year if you can do as much as possible. Enjoy the final part of your holidays and I look forward to seeing you all back on 5th September! Miss F ;

Happy weekend 6C!

Remember your homework is to learn your lines for the production, think about what your costume should look like, or make sure you know what props are needed in each scene if you are backstage crew.

You did very well making your newspaper chair this week and I am looking forward to testing out its strength on Monday! (let’s hope it doesn’t collapse and leave me in a heap on the floor!)

Here is a little riddle for you to think about over the weekend – you can post your answer here, or on our MLE page in the ‘chat’ section. There are house points available for the correct answer:

I have streets but no pavement, cities but no buildings, I have forests but no trees, I have rivers yet no water. What am I?

See you on Monday and don’t forget your trip letter and money, SRE slip and PE kit!

Mrs Couch

Hello Year 6,

I hope you’re all having a good weekend, even though today is terribly windy. Hopefully, you are all very excited about our up and coming end of year production. As you all now know your parts, you should ensure that you become familiar with the scenes in which you will perform. Those children who are performing backstage roles; you need to ensure you know about the props needed, scene changes and sound and lighting prompts.

This is the last week before half term now, and boy has it been hectic! We have worked our little socks off this half term and previous ones in preparation to show off our skills to everyone. However, remember we still have lots of important things to do before we say goodbye and you start you secondary school career.

Hello 6D your homework is all on our MLE, located on our homework page. Yesterday was a great day, I thoroughly enjoyed our science session and the very interesting questions you posed! I am impressed. . . On the MLE page I have posted a link to some science videos, some of which we looked at last year. Refresh yourselves on these here. Remember to bring in your booster letters for Monday. Boosters will start on Tuesday 1st February, remember to remind your parents.

22nd January

Hello 6D, as you know your homework is on the MLE on the homework page. Hope you have a great weekend.


Happy weekend 6C!

Your homework is up on the MLE. Remember it is due in by Tuesday.

Question (worth 100 house points): I have a drawer of 20 red socks, 20 green socks and 20 blue socks. When I get up in the morning I can’t turn the light on or I will wake up Mr Couch! How many socks do I have to pull out in the dark, to make sure I get a matching pair?

See you on Monday!

Mrs Couch


Hello 6C!

I hope you are enjoying reading your lovely new books! It is wonderful to see how well you are looking after them. I am really looking forward to hearing all about your favourite bits. Don’t forget, you could tell your friends which ones you recommend, so they know what to pick next time! : )

Remember your P.E. days have changed to WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY this term.

So far this term, I have awarded almost 1000 house points to members of 6C who have been on the MLE and answered brain teasers on the chat page…have you had a go yet?

Mrs Couch


Hello Year 6!

I feel like I haven’t written on the blog for such a long time. Hope you all had a great week, last week. As you will see on the home page of the blog I have updated the post regarding newsletters and a great new website.

6D I am back this week and as I said previously the hard work and concentration is now needed more than ever. Though I know you can do this. As I wasn’t in Friday, you haven’t had homework in a physical sesne, but I did talk to you about ensuring you practised things such as spellings and timestables, these are all things you can do on your own. I am now attaching the link to the sheet of spellings so you can have this online too! I will also provide a link to it on the MLE.

See you tomorrow.

Mr Duffy.


Hello 6C!

Are you sad the snow has melted? To cheer you up, I have put some lovely new pictures (of you making Christmas decorations) on the MLE. They are in two separate places, so you will have to look around to find them!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, see you on Monday,

Mrs Couch :)


Hello 6C!

I hope you enjoyed your extra day off school and used it to do some fabulous homework for me :)

Don’t forget the homework is always on the MLE now, not here.

I am really looking forward to this week because we are going to be doing some fun activities!

See you on Monday,

Mrs Couch


Hello 6C!

Remember you should also be reading a news article in a paper or listening to one on TV or the radio which you will be able to talk about on Monday.

Just like 6D, you will have a random spelling test on Wednesday – the words could come from any of the tests you have had so far, so go back on Spelling City and practise!

6th November

Hello 6D – your homework this week is to complete as much of the measures sheet as you can. Also, practise ALL of your previous spellings, as you will have a random spelling test on Wednesday. Please also check the MLE to find some revision sheets for English, Maths & Science. Use the game below to help with your homework.

Hello 6C – enjoy your week off school!

Remember what you decided about their personality and what they liked doing. Write a description of what they would have done on a regular weekend.

Mrs Couch :)


Hello 6C!

Most of you have already asked your parents to sign up for parents’ evening next week – well done! Please make sure you all reserve a slot as it is very important that your parents have a chance to come and find out how you are doing in Year 6 : ) Mrs Couch


Hello 6C, here is your homework!

A) Click on the links below to go to your spelling list at SpellingCity Group 1 Group2 B) We have been thinking about Genres in Literacy. Write down the title and author of your favourite book at home. Tell me which genre you think it is…and why. What tells you it is one genre or another? Be specific – that means give me details! C) Copy out the separate sheet of maths questions. D) We have been learning about differences between Athens and Sparta. Pretend you live in Athens. Write a list of your daily routine from waking up until going to bed. For example: 6.00 – I get up and have to milk the cows 7.00 – I spend 2 hours shopping for food in the market. 9.00 – I have lessons in mathematics for 1.5hrs. This must be about the way people used to live in ancient Greek times so think about the rules of the city you choose! Have a lovely weekend. Mrs Couch

Next year I will be 29.” He cannot travel through time and he is telling the truth. What date is his birthday? Post your answers on the blog.

    • I can’t wait till SAT’S.i want to get it over with. Year 6 have been working hard and Miss Folkard are we going to the science museum.


    There has been breaking news that a school in Fulham has closed down for 2 days because there has been a gas leak. Sue Hayward and the office were texting the children’s parents to say that Sir John Lillie Primary will be closed because of a gas leak. The gas leak could have been very dangerous and the school closed on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th January 2013.
    Mrs Hayward suggested that the school should be closed. Miss Jackson said ‘’that’s unbelievable’’.

    Miss Folkard said to the children in year 6 that the children should have homework because Wednesday is a school day and if the children didn’t have school on Thursday they would have to go on the school blog and do the rest of it.


    On Tuesday 22nd of January 2013, the school teachers at Sir John Lillie in Fulham found out that they had a gas leak.
    They were thinking it would get worse so they closed the school for 2 days. The 1st day is when they fixed it but the school rang the parents to tell them that there was no school on Thursday as well because they wanted to double check that the gas leak was fixed.
    When everyone found out there was school on Friday the children were so annoyed and the parents were so happy that there was school.
    Abdirahman from Year 5 said, “I’m so upset, why do I have to go back to school. I wish I had another day off!”

    On Wednesday the 23rd of January Sir John Lillie Primary School has been closed because of a serious gas leak. Miss Jackson said that’s unbelievable , the children parents were waiting for news until the gas leaking has stopped leaking.
    Eventually the parents received terrible new that the school needed one more day to get warmer .Sue said Im sorry but the school must be closed immediately to keep your children safe.
    Sadly 6f could not go to their trip on the 23rd of January and they had to residual their trip. Miss Folkcard said can this get any worse.
    6J and 6F were set to have homework due on Wednesday and Thursday and the rest of it is due on the blog. Joy said that’s so unfair the homework was set by Miss Jackson and Miss Folkcard.

  10. Miss Jackson there was no questions at page 64 & 65 but there’s questions at page 56 & 57 and its about the Robin Hood story

  11. hello miss Jackson you know our home/school work, in the English CGP book there is no questions on page 64 and 65, so can I answer the questions on page 62 and 63 ? :)

    We had assembly and we found out what gruop was going ice skating it was tolkien. Then we had playtime, which was very fun but it was raining so it was quite wet. I predict that it is going to be wet play in the afternoon so we can watch a DVD.

    This afternoon we are going to do P.E.

  30. I am here to tell you about my favorite subject. Sports (running) is my favorite subject because i’m good at it I enjoy it and most of all I always get picked to do it when i trail and not all the time I get picked to do things. When I run in a competition I win or lose and you know what I am always proud of my self and my coach is proud of me to.

    I might not be the best runner in the world but I will always know that I am the best in my life. Do you like sports? If you do like sports what is your favorite? And do you feel proud of your self when you do it? Don’t feel bad about your self when you try something always think about what you’ve done and how you’ve done it because the person that is bullying you could be jealous and want to have the talent that you have.

    I am on the blog to inspire you and to make you feel better. If you have any comments please don’t feel shy please reply and express your feelings.

  31. Last Friday a group of children from year 6’s went to the Lyric theatre to see Cinderella. I think Buttons was the best character because he made us all laugh. My favorite bit was when 5 people walked onto the stage and started to do ‘Gangham Style’ (everybody laughed.) It was really fun and I enjoyed it.
    At the end of the play Buttons got his fairy wings and started to fly. When we got back to school we ate are lunches. The step mum and the ugly sisters were really funny, I wish I could go again. I also liked it when Buttons chanted ‘ that’s not your present’ when somebody tried to steal the shiny present. All the teachers who came enjoyed it as well.

  40. Farmers put fertilizers and pesticides on their crops so that their crops grow better. But these fertilizers and pesticides can be washed
    through the soil by rain, to end up in rivers. Fertilizers and pesticides are harmful because they cause algae to grow. The algae then destroy
    water plants. People are sometimes careless and throw rubbish such as bottles and crisp packets directly into rivers.

    Effects of pollution

    Pollution kills water plants and animals.

    Polluted water also carries diseases. When animals drink the water, they may get diseases which can kill them. People can even get these
    diseases by eating the infected animal. This happens a lot in poor countries in Africa where people get untreated water directly from the river.

    Rivers look unsightly when there is rubbish in them.

    Polluted rivers smell bad.


    Efforts are being made to clean dirty rivers. Water companies like Southern Water are spending a lot of money to clean up dirty rivers. There
    are fines for companies and people who deliberately throw rubbish into the river.

  41. hello Miss F!
    I hope you are doing well with the new 6F !
    I am really enjoying Lady Margaret and have made lots of new friends :D I have a half day soon so I can come and visit :)

  42. Information about the River Thames.

    1) It is the longest river in England and the second longest in the United Kingdom.

    3) In 1953 a bad storm pushed a lot of sea water into the mouth of the Thames. Around 300 people drowned as well as 9000 sheep 2400 pigs and 70 horses.

  54. Mr Duffy here is my speech for the mediator jacket

    In Sir John Lillie school we have some children who are mediators.

    Who are mediators?
    Mediators are children who will be in the playground to help children. For example if a young child had lost their friends or had nobody to play with, the mediators would help them find someone to play with or help them find their friends. Another thing a mediator would do is if a child is having a fight they would try and help them resolve it and if it is to much for them the teacher would help solve it out.

  57. What was life like for slaves?

    Life was hard and rough they had small sheds to sleep in and never
    bathed. Life for them was not healthy. they didn’t have good times like we have now days. They had to work all the time from early morning to night. They have to work for people. They get whipped most of the time. They had to walk around not healthy all day, they had to walk around dirty, and they don’t eat whenever they want. This is what like was like during slavery.

      • Miss Folkard, i lost the sheet of paper so i don’t know what the he spelling questions were and i forgot the spellings’ so could you please put it on the blog so i can bring it in on Monday because i will be cheking on the blog to see if you have replied yet.

      • I’m afraid I don’t have the questions with me at home Nermen. I can remember a couple of them though so here are the ones I can remember:

        When did slavery end in the uk?
        Where did slaves travel from?
        What was life like for slaves?
        How did slavery come to an end?

        You can use the brainpop website to help find the answers. If you want to have a go today that’s great but if not I can give you a spare sheet tomorrow. See you in the morning!

  58. My homework:

    2.How did the slave trade come to a end?
    A man called Abraham Lincoln stopped by writing a letter

    3.What was life like for the slaves?
    it was a very hard life for all the slaves

    4.what were slaves used for?
    they were kepted as farm labourers and if they didn’t work they could get killed.

    5.why were Africans used as slaves?
    because if they talk about native Americans they refer to Africans.

    6.When did the slave trade end in Britain?

    • I agree Anisa, though remember the title, ‘Should smoking be banned in public places?’ Think about the for and against. People who smoke do you think they want to be outside, should people have the choice to smoke or should people be told what to do?

      Remember we ARE NOT advocating smoking but think about the arguments for both sides. A balanced argument is showing you can be fair to both sides, regardless of your own opinions, that is until your final paragraph when you can then give your own opinions.

      Keep going. . . .

  79. Within an arm’s reach of the developing Olympic village in Stratford, another young athlete continues his daily routine designed to elevate him to the status of Olympian. JJ Jegede has established himself as one of the most exciting British athletes around, with the East London resident touted as a potential 2012 Olympian primed to reignite the long jump event.

    The necessity to overcome adversity is rooted within Jegede’s DNA; injury has already played a pivotal role in his brief spell as an athlete. The inception of his long-jump career can in fact be traced to an injury – after establishing himself as a footballer of immense potential at just 13, his dreams were extinguished by persistent problems with his knees
