Working together, learning together


Year 6 Home Learning Friday 22nd May


Today, would have been the last day at school before a week off! Hope you all have a great holiday next week.


English – Hope you enjoyed the video of Pandora yesterday. Here it is again if you need it.

Pandora Discovered

Sigourney Weaver narrates this first look at the world of Pandora, as portrayed in James Cameron's epic new motion picture, Avatar. Opens worldwide December 18.

Your job today is to rewrite the introduction to this film.


Read through this Powerpoint carefully and it will help you.

Maths – Multiplying fractions again. Yesterday’s lesson should have reminded you of how to multiply using a fraction and a whole number. Try these questions. Remember to draw diagrams to help you if you need to.

History – Evacuation.


This was when children were sent away from large towns and cities and were sent to the countryside to keep them safe from bombs. At first they thought they would only be away from their families for a short time however some ended up being away for 5 or 6 years!


I have set you the task on Purple Mash to write a postcard home to mum/dad/grandma to explain what it’s like being an evacuee. If you prefer you could make your own postcard on paper and write it.


Think about the new experiences you might be having some children won’t have ever seen a cow/horse/pig before! You may be living on a farm and helping doing some jobs such as feeding the hens. You could also do some writing about your feelings or about how a sibling is behaving.


Food technology – I want you to make something over the weekend. It could be a cake/biscuits/scones or you could even help cook the tea for people in your house or make a sandwich.


What about being inventive and create your own sandwich or scone? We’ve baked 2 ‘new’ types of scones this week for us. Instead of currants in the scone, we added chocolate chips and in the other type we added small pieces of apple.


Remember to let me know in the comments what you have made or get an adult to email school or post a photograph on Facebook.
