Week beginning: 4th May 2020


The children have a Maths and English task set daily and one Topic, Science and Spellings task which can be completed at any point over the week. Please scroll down to find the weekly activities at the bottom of this page.




Follow the link and click on “Summer Term Week 2 (w/c 27th April)” then complete Lesson 4- Problem solving. Remember most Maths problems in Year 6 are multistep and are likely to require more than one calculation. Can you find a method to check your answer?


Complete Activity 5 attached.

Listen to two readings of Miroslav Holub’s poem “The Door”

Follow the activity- answer the reflection questions and preform the poem yourself.



Please login to PurpleMash and complete the tasks set.


Complete activity 6 attached.

Read the extract or listen to it then, answer the questions. Remember to give detailed answers explaining why and using evidence from the text.



Problem solving and reasoning: Please find Nrich task to complete. This will require various calculations to work out the total of each shape. The value of each shape will remain the same throughout- for example the purple square will have the same value in each calculation.

Helpful clue= the square= 2


Complete activity 7 attached.

Today’s task has a grammar focus. It considers the power of three, the use of semi-colons and the impact of adverbs- all of which we have focused on in class.

Improve the sentences given using the guidance provided and then write some of your own. Be creative and remember what the focus of the activity is.



Negative numbers-

Watch the video and complete the interactive quiz, then complete the puzzle attached.


Complete activity 8 attached.

Today’s task focuses on a piece of writing from a text. It may be from a book you are reading and have at home. If you can’t think of a character, us Maia from our class text “Journey to the River Sea.” Use the grid to help you write a detailed paragraph about your character finding the door.

Think about: Where they were coming from/ going to? How did they find the door? Describe the door. How did the character feel? What were they thinking? Did it remind them of anything?

Friday (Bank Holiday - optional learning):


Problem solving and reasoning: Complete the task attached Nrich -Route Product.

Remember product means multiplying numbers together.



Complete activity 9 attached.

You will be planning a story of your own following the tips and underlying pattern outlined in the document.

Your plan may be a bullet point plan for each paragraph- remember the more detailed your planning the easier the writing will be.



Weekly tasks:


Practise your spellings daily using one of the activities from our school's spelling approach. A spelling test will be set on Friday through Purple Mash.


Read through the lesson PowerPoint. This week, we are continuing to focus on the circulatory system.

Read the functions sheet and complete the challenge cards attached. This can be presented in any way you wish.

Next you are going to create a game, using questions from the challenge cards or the information on the function sheets.

It is up to you how this game will look. I have attached the “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” template if you wish to use it. Finally play your game with someone at home!



Watch the video about VE day-

What is VE day? Why is it celebrated?

Read through the accounts of VE day on the document attached and complete the similarities and differences between the accounts.

How will you celebrate VE day? Have a look at the ideas in Mrs Crowley’s letter, some ideas are listed below:

 · Make bunting to decorate your home and/or garden

· Have a ‘family’ street party – you could eat outside or have a BBQ with your household

· Bake and decorate a special cake or cakes or you could have a traditional cream tea

· Play some traditional games from the time, board games or just play outside in the garden if you can – children in the 1940s spent a lot of time outside (please see below for ideas)

· Learn and sing some traditional songs from the era, for example, ‘We’ll Meet Again’, ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’, ‘Boogie, Woogie Bugle Boy’

· Dress up as if you were living in the 1940s, you could dress up in red, white and/or blue or you could just put on your party/favourite clothes

· Have a picnic in your garden

· Create memories and take photos to look back on in the future.

I would love to see your celebrations so remember to send to


Year Book

Mrs Cosentino is working very hard, putting together our year book. We would like to interview and ask Mrs Crowley some questions to be included in our book.

For your task this week, think carefully about what question you would like to ask.

Try to make it an open question which does not have a Yes / No answer.

It could be a question about the school, a particular subject, being a head teacher or about a memory of the class/ her time at the school.

Be creative. Remember to send your questions to
