National Sport Week 20th-26th June 2020


Dear Parent,


How do you fancy challenging friends, family or neighbours to some fun, virtual sporting activities this summer?

At national children’s charity, the Youth Sport Trust, we are determined to ensure that young people stay active and connected through this difficult time. We’ve been helping families do this with our daily #StayHomeStayActive activities since March and now we’re challenging the public to go one step further by joining us in our first ever National School Sport Week at Home, supercharged by Sky Sports.


Taking place from 20-26 June, the week will give families, communities, schools and sports clubs the opportunity to take part in a series of virtual sporting challenges which help young people capture the enjoyment, competition and camaraderie they may be missing out on and the Youth Sport Trust is delighted that Sky Sports will be helping to supercharge the campaign.


How do I find out more?

Registering couldn’t be simpler. Just go to our website and click on the link for parents. You will be asked a couple of questions as you register about who you might challenge and how many people you would like to get involved.


After signing up we will provide you with free and easy-to-use resources to help plan your week of National School Sport Week at Home Activity, set challenges for your families, friends and neighbours, and shout about it online.

So, what are you waiting for? Join the growing number of people who will be running, jumping and throwing their way to glory from 20-26 June.

Please send in your entries to @SSPmacc on Twitter or Rosie Harris (our School Games Organiser) by email at - it would be great to see some of our pupils taking part!


Remember there is a chance for your clip to be selected in a video - plus there are prizes too!

Below, we have set some work for you for this week - please work through it as much as you can.

To all our Year 6's, 


As SATs weeks arrives it is not quite the same,

The tests that were printed this year never came,

The displays all still up; walls full of resources for all,

But Year 6 very different, at present, in schools.


For some of you, happiness, lots of relief,

For others a sigh of pure disbelief,

That you worked really hard in advance of this week,

Expected and Greater Depth marks you did seek.


Algebra, fractions, the times tables drills,

Inference, retrieval, in-depth reading skills,

Past, present, progressive... all the GPS terms,

You've practised and mastered them over the years.   


Fear not though, the SATs, yes, won't happen this term,

But remember tests don't measure everything you learn,

Primary subjects are varied; you've always tried your best,

And many of those skills that you've gained can't be defined by a test.


So, here at Disley, you've made us so proud,

We sit here with pride and we shout this out loud...

"Year 6 you amaze us, you've come incredibly far...

And we don't need a test to see how amazing you are!"


Stay safe,

- All the Staff at Disley

As the Year 6 SATs will not be taking place this week, we would like to host our very own SATs (Share a Talent) week that can be done from the comfort of your home. Over the course of this week, take a photo or a film of one of your talents and email it to your teacher by Thursday afternoon, so we can put all of your pictures and films into a short video and share it on our class page with your class mates to spread a little cheer.


We look forward to seeing all of your wonderful talents.

Challenge 1 - Tri-Golf - Send in your entries to @SSPmacc on Twitter or Rosie Harris by email at

Hello to all of our lovely children in Y5 and Y6, 


We hope that you are all staying at home and staying safe.


From next week, we thought it would be nice if you had the opportunity to send us some of your home learning, a picture of something you have done (baked a cake, done some gardening, a new football skill etc), a little message telling us how you are getting on or just a little message to say hello. When you have decided what to send, you can send it to your teacher’s email address.  We will then email you back, commenting on the work and lovely activities you have done. 


It will be so lovely to hear and see all of the things that you have been up to.  If you send us one message each week, that will give you time to think about what you would like to say or show.  Each week you can ‘show or tell’ us something new and then we will get back in touch with you. If we do not hear from you by Friday, we will send you a little email just to catch up and see how you are getting on.


We are all very excited to hear from you.

Please find our emails attached below:

Home Learning Tasks Week 2 (w/c 30.3.20)

Just a reminder of some of the great things that we have done in Year 5/6 this year! 

As part of our topic 'Were the Vikings always victorious and vicious?' we enjoyed a 'Viking Day'...

We dressed up as Vikings...


    We dressed up as vikings. 


We became archaeologists to find out about Viking life... 


We designed and made our own Viking Long ships...


At Christmas, we made gingerbread houses...

And don't forget our 'Date with a Book' to celebrate World Book Day!


Welcome Back!


We're already halfway through the school year and Mr Nicklin, Miss Kemp and Mrs Robinson have lots of exciting activities planned for the rest of the year!

Please keep practising times tables to aid with fluency!
This term, Years 5 and 6 will be studying fractions and decimals and Year 6 will also be studying ratio and proportion.


We are excited to begin our new topic which is about Climate Change. We are sending home knowledge mats to provide you with some key facts which we will be covering during this topic - a copy of this is also available on the class page. Any artifacts or information you have at home would be much appreciated! 


In English, we will be focusing on our topic work and writing reports.


In Science we will be learning about space.  


PE days are on a Thursday.  Please make sure kit for all-weathers is in school. Please also ensure that you bring a water bottle into school so that you can keep hydrated.



As ever, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask Mr Nicklin, Miss Kemp or Mrs Robinson.
