Year 6 Investigate Genesis Cinema

How is Genesis cinema different to most other cinemas? How is it similar?

What happens in the auditorium?

 

What did you learn in the projection room?

        

What is the box office?

   

Why are the galleries, cafes and bars important to the cinema business?

    

What makes the most turnover (money) for this business? What makes the most profit?

 

Year 6 Christmas Song Lyrics – Step into Christmas by Elton John

Welcome to my Christmas song
I’d like to thank you for the year
So I’m sending you this Christmas card
To say it’s nice to have you here
I’d like to sing about all the things
Your eyes and mind can see
So hop aboard the turntable
Oh step into Christmas with me

Step into Christmas
Let’s join together
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
Eat, drink and be merry
Come along with me
Step into Christmas
The admission’s free

Take care in all you do next year
And keep smiling through the days
If we can help to entertain you
Oh we will find the ways
So merry Christmas one and all
There’s no place I’d rather be
Than asking you if you’d oblige
Stepping into Christmas with me

Step into Christmas
Let’s join together
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
Eat, drink and be merry
Come along with me
Step into Christmas
The admission’s free
Oh oh oh
La la la la

Welcome to my Christmas song
I’d like to thank you for the year
So I’m sending you this Christmas card
To say it’s nice to have you here
I’d like to sing about all the things
Your eyes and mind can see
So hop aboard the turntable
Oh step into Christmas with me

Step into Christmas
Let’s join together
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
Eat, drink and be merry
Come along with me
Step into Christmas
The admission’s free

Step into Christmas
Let’s join together
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
Eat, drink and be merry
Come along with me
Step into Christmas
The admission’s free

Step into Christmas
Let’s join together
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
Eat, drink and be merry
Come along with me
Step into Christmas
The admission’s free

Oh oh

Step, step into Christmas
Oh for ever and ever
Yeah come along with me
Now
oh oh oh oh

Step, step into Christmas
Oh for ever and ever
Yeah come along with me
Now

Year 6 Home learning 16.11.18, due 19.11.18

This week, as part of a co-curricular project, we have designed treasure boxes to protect precious items of our chosen god or goddess from being stolen. Each child has already decided what the items are, who they belong to and who might be trying to steal them.

For home learning, you may choose any one of the following tasks related to this event:

  • Write a recount of the activity you have taken part in during Thursday and Friday, this could be presented as a non-chronological report or a diary entry or a letter.
  • Write the story of your box, explaining why the items are so precious to the god and why someone is trying to steal them. Tell the story of what happens during the robbery and what happens in the end.
  • Write a newspaper article about the robbery.

Use lots of descriptive detail in your writing, including similes, metaphor and personification. It must be hand-written in your best, joined handwriting.
