June 11th is King Kamehameha Day
King Kamehameha Day, a pretty big deal in Hawaii and celebrates the accomplishments of “Kamehameha the Great.” He’s credited with uniting the Hawaiian Islands in 1810. A highly revered leader, Kamehameha is honoured each year with numerous celebrations across the islands. Downtown Honolulu hosts one such celebration, where hundreds of leis, at least 30 feet long, are draped over the 15-foot statue of the celebrated ruler. Other celebrations include parades, a plethora of floral arrangements and, of course, the traditional Hawaiian hula.
3. Why don’t you carry out research on this important king you could create a power point or learn how to hula by following the link below or make a garland to celebrate?

Happy Monday to the outstanding incredible Year 6
I hope that you have had an amazing weekend despite the rain. Looks like I made a mistake last week and we celebrated World Ocean day a week early! Well I think it’s better to celebrate an important day twice than not at all. Let’s have some fun!
1 .World Ocean day activity Create an amazing picture to create an Ocean Day jigsaw. Make Your Own Jigsaw
You'll need: a finished picture you created or a picture from a magazine or if you have access to a printer one from the internet, cardboard and scissors
Take a finished picture or a cool page from a magazine and stick onto a sheet of cardboard (cereal boxes work well). From here, cut up the image to make your own jigsaw. Try cutting it into smaller pieces to make it more difficult!
2. This week our recipe is to make yummy cheese scones which I love. If you’re not keen on the savoury scones can you make a sweet one (chocolate, cherry, any dried fruit?) Be imaginative and please add your ideas to our face book page so we can all have a go. Why don’t you create your own recipe book and take pictures to add to this?. You could also write a report as if you are a food critic
Follow the link for my cheese scones.
3. Play Mini Ice Hockey-This is a great game I used to play with my son
You'll need: a baking tray, water, post-it notes, spoons and a button or bottle lid
Freeze a layer of water in a baking tray to create your ice rink and stick a post-it note at either end of the tray to mark the goals. Use spoons as your hockey sticks and try to hit your button/lid puck against the post-it note on the other side of the tray.
4. Storm In A Jar Experiment in honour of the rain
You'll need: a large glass jar, shaving foam, pipette or eye dropper, food colouring, 1 or more small cups
Mix up some food colouring with water in your small cup(s) - create as many cups of coloured water as you'd like. Fill the large jar about 3/4 full with water. Right before you're about to do the experiment, top the jar with shaving cream until it's just above the rim - this will be your cloud. From there, keep dropping coloured water on top of the shaving cream and keep an eye on what's happening below. When the shaving cream cloud gets too heavy, the colours will start to seep through like rain, just like what happens with real clouds!
I have seen lots of different types of clouds Cirrus, Cumulus, Cumulus Congestus and Cumulonimbus can you find the names of anymore? Why are clouds different shapes and sizes? Can you research these and how a cloud is formed? You can create a fact file, art work or why don’t you film yourself delivering a weather report for your teacher!
5. Learn Classic Card Games
You'll need: a deck of cards
Adults can use this time to teach t classic card games like Solitaire or Rummy. Card games have been a rainy day staple for generations and now feels like the perfect time to pass onto our younger generation. If you need a little reminder follow the link below
