SPRING 2021 - Week 2 (11.1.21)

Hello Year 6! I hope you have had a lovely weekend. You worked so hard last week for our first week of home learning and I have high expectations of you this week too. Remember we are expecting you to do 3 hours of home learning each day and you must try your best to send me what you have been up to. This would be a maths task, a literacy task and another task each day. This is on top of practising your Reading, Spellings and Timestables (These should be practised daily during lockdown.)

I have set a Literacy task and Maths task for each day and your other activities include PE, Science, RE, PSHE, DT and French.

Year 6 Home Learning Week 2

Other Activities 11.1.21



Talking about keeping healthy and pulse rates, I would like you to design a short fitness circuit in your home that you can change daily. Using safe equipment, find 5 activities each day that you can do on a continuous circuit for 30 seconds on 30 seconds rest. Complete the circuit four times (20 minutes). You could get the whole family involved and be the fitness instructor but you MUST join in too. Film your fitness class to send to me on Seesaw and Facebook!! Think carefully about all the different fitness stations we worked on last half term. Can you use things from home that will do the same job? I cannot wait to see all your ideas.



What is a pulse?

Look at the information sheet about How to find your pulse. Practise finding your pulse and record how many times it beats per minute. You will need a timer to do this. When you are confident follow the instructions to design an investigation to show the effect of exercise on your pulse rate.



Look closely at the Eatwell Plate.

Use the sheet to design a week of school dinners that you think will appeal to other children in school. Remember to have a variety of foods each day but also that your designs must look appetising and inspire more children to eat healthily at lunchtimes. Try to think about what the children might like but also keep a really healthy balance of foods from the different food groups. You may use images of foods and stick them on each plate or you may draw on the plates but try to keep your foods as realistic as possible.

Can you also find the nutritional values of all the foods on your plates and say why you think they are healthy?




Read the information about Judaism.

Fill in the table with what you have read and found out. You can add images and symbols too.



Using the sheet Famous Quotes about Kindness

Look at the Kindness emojis and see if you can match them to the correct kindness quote.

Then answer the questions underneath and complete the challenge to make a poster!

Year 6



Hello and welcome back to home learning. I know this is difficult and not how we wanted to be learning this half term but please try to complete as many of the tasks as you can each week. It is important that you try really hard to continue the really excellent start you have made to Year 6. We are so impressed with your brilliant attitudes and we would love to see all your hard work so make sure when you have completed pieces of you work you take photos or videos and send them to me via Seesaw or ask parents and carers to send them via Facebook so I can see all your fantastic hard work.

I will update the website for the next three days Wednesday 6th January until Friday 8th of January and then again ready for learning for next week. I cannot wait to see what you produce this week. The idea is to complete a Maths and Literacy activity each day and then one or two other activities each day depending on how long they take you!! 

Here goes Year 6 - You've got this!! 

Year 6

Spring 1

Week 1 - Literacy


This week in Literacy we will be looking at poetry. We will be reading a variety of poems and discussing them, what they mean and annotating each one (pulling them apart) with our ideas and understanding.


We are staring this week with Winter Morning by Ogden Nash.

Winter Morning 

by Ogden Nash

Winter is the king of showmen,

Turning tree stumps into snow men

And houses into birthday cakes

And spreading sugar over lakes.

Smooth and clean and frosty white,

The world looks good enough to bite.

That's the season to be young,

Catching snow flakes on your tongue.


Snow is snowy when it's snowing,

I'm sorry it's slushy when it's going.


Day 1 - Start by using talk for writing and learn the poem with expression. You can record your version and send me the video via Seesaw or Facebook.

Day 2 - Then pull the poem apart and see what you think each line means. Talk about how the poem makes you feel and what you see when you read the poem. What did you like about the poem, what did you dislike? Send me pictures of your annotations and thoughts and ideas.

Day 3 - Can you draw the image this poem puts in your head? Send me your finished pictures.


Year 6

Spring 1

Week 1 – Maths


We will be looking at coordinates this week in Maths.

Day 1 - Using the first quadrant x and y – can you remember the rule to plot coordinates?

Along the corridor (x) and up the stairs (y).

Read the presentation for worksheet 1 to remind yourself of how to use coordinates. Then complete worksheet 1

Day 2 - Read the presentation for worksheet 2 and when you feel confident work your way through worksheet 2. If you are unsure just keep practising how to plot coordinates in the first quadrant until you feel more confident. (worksheet 1)

Day 3 - When you are feeling confident – try one of these more challenging yet fun 4 quadrant coordinate pictures – follow the coordinates very carefully, take your time to join the dots (make sure you stop where it tells you too) to create the image. Remember to always go across first (+ or -) then up or down depending on the other (Y) coordinate. Use the coordinate grid to draw the image.







Year 6

Spring 1

Week 1 – PSHE – Kindness Heroes


We are designing our own kindness quotes to show that we can be Kindness Superheroes. Can you design your own kindness quote that would make you a kindness superhero? Use the template to draw yourself as a kindness hero (you can add an image of your face or try to draw a self portrait) and design your own kindness character and what your famous quote would be. Put your kindness quote in the speech bubble, colour it and then send me the pictures and I can add them to the wall in the classroom!


Year 6

Spring 1

Week 1 – DT


We are designing questionnaires to send to the other children in school about school dinners. We will eventually be designing our own healthy school dinners so with that in mind can you design a questionnaire that all the children in school can answer with their thoughts and feelings.


Year 6

Spring 1

Week 1 – RE


Read Mark’s version of The Last Supper (below) After you have read it – draw a picture of The Last Supper to show what was happening. (Use the text to explain what you have drawn).


The Last Supper

12 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb, Jesus’ disciples asked him, “Where do you want us to go and make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”

13 So he sent two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him. 14 Say to the owner of the house he enters, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is my guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ 15 He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there.”

16 The disciples left, went into the city and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.

17 When evening came, Jesus arrived with the Twelve. 18 While they were reclining at the table eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me—one who is eating with me.”

19 They were saddened, and one by one they said to him, “Surely you don’t mean me?”

20 “It is one of the Twelve,” he replied, “one who dips bread into the bowl with me. 21 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”

22 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take it; this is my body.”

23 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it.

24 “This is my blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for many,” he said to them. 25 “Truly I tell you, I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”

26 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
