Hi year 6!  Mrs Tyler here again!   Here are your learning activities for  today.  Remember to go onto TT Rock Stars and Corbett Maths to develop your arithmetic skills.

A big thank you to all of you who have gone on TT Rocks Stars yesterday. I really do appreciate it and I am very proud of you.  Well done to EGN, MG, PM and DA   Keep going!   Your Secondary school teachers are really impressed with you as am I. 

Well done also to DA for your amazing poem.  I would love it if you can send some more poems to me.  

Please make sure that you take a photo of any work that you have done and email it the school office and they will email it to me.  I cannot wait to hear from you.  I am missing you so much.  Mrs Tyler

Choose a session from the PE folder and carry out a physical activity. If the weather is nice try and get some fresh air and do some physical exercise outside whilst it is still sunny.  Why not go for a walk?  Go for a bike ride?   Enjoy that sunshine and get active.


Spelling Friday 24th 2020

I can put my year 5 and year 6  tricky words into a sentence.

Value: perseverance

Have a go at using the  Look, Cover, Write and Check method of spelling to learn  the following words underneath.    Write down the words that you have learnt in a sentence. Remember that you need to be able to spell these words by the end of year 6.

For example:  In class, the boy would frequently ask the teacher questions.


harass,  hindrance,  identify,  immediate,  immediately

I can write a poem based on a poem

Value: perseverance

If you have not completed any of the writing tasks  from the week please read activity writing 1 which is outlined below.I would like you to read  activity card 1.  You are going to have a go at writing a poem based on poem called 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright.   You can either read the poem or watch the poem on the you tube clip that I have provided.  In the poem, Kit imagines what may be contained inside a magical box.  We can use this idea to connect to what could be behind the magical door.    Before you begin, brainstorm a list of idea for what might be behind the door.  Let your imagination run wild as there is no wrong answer.  Remember you can use your ideas from yesterday in your poem.  Once you have your list, have a go at writing a poem, using the repeated opener: I opened the magical door and saw.....

Here's an example to help you get going:

I opened the magical door and saw shadows dancing.

I opened the magical door and saw a rainbow leading to another world.

I opened the magical door and saw people crying.

I opened the magical door and saw a magical fairground flooded in lights.

Today, you are now going to have a go and see if you can add more detail and information to your initial ideas.  For example yesterday I wrote:

I opened the magical door and saw shadows dancing.

I can now improve my initial idea by adding in more detail  explaining what the shadows are doing

for example:

I opened the magical door and saw a shoal of hungry shadows, tangoing through busy streets. 

Read the writing activity card 2 to see the poem that another teacher wrote with bis year 6 class to help give you some ideas. 

Today you are going to continue to edit and revise your poems that you have written.  Read Activity card 3.  

Reread what you have written and change some of the words so that it says exactly what you want it to say. Look at activity 3 and the writing challenge and add in some of  the ideas.  You may now want to explore more of your senses in your poem. You may like to try the following pattern.

I opened the magical door and saw ...

I opened the magical door and heard  ...

I opened the magical door and smelt  ...

I opened the magical door and touched  ....

I opened the magical door and found ...

Today I would like you to make sure that you have completed your poem and then either type them up or write them out in your neatest handwriting.  Then email them to the office.  If you have handwritten them then take a photograph of your writing and email them to the office. 

I would love  to show some of your poems on The Grove Facebook page.

I can develop my inference skills

Value: Optimism

Have a go at answering the comprehension questions based on  the story - 'Little Boy Blue.'  These questions are helping you to develop your inference skills so that you will have to read between the lines.  Make sure that you write your answers in full sentences in your homework/exercise book.  Once you have completed the questions check your answers with the sheet provided.





I can round numbers

Value: Self-belief

This lesson is all to do with rounding numbers.    First  watch the you tube clip to remind yourself how to round numbers. Then click on the web link bitesize and watch the video and read through the learn section..  Once you have completed this go onto the interactive activity 1.  

Activity 1

Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica

There are lots of questions about rounding numbers in the 'Palace of Place Value' on Guardians. See how many you can get right in 10 minutes. This is a brilliant interactive activity and I am sure you will enjoy answering the mathematical questions. I certainly did!

If you have time, you can complete the rounding questions and use the answer sheet to check your answers.



Read the artistic challenge 3.  Have a go at drawing, painting or creating your own door.  What design would you choose?  What would it represent?  Remember keep emailing those pictures in.  I would love to see what Art work you produce.



PSHE/Mental well-being

I would like you today to try and do an activity with another person that you live with.  Choose an activity from the following which you haven't done before.

Go for a walk with that person and enjoy the sunshine.

Play a game with that person - eg a board game or an outdoor game.

Make something together - you could cook something or make something creative out of the materials that you have at home.

Have a go at building a tower which is taller than you.  Use what you can around the house but be as imaginative as you can. For example you can use lego, rolled up newspaper, cans, 

Whatever you choose to do - make sure that you spend time together with another person and have fun!


If you want to - you could take a picture of you doing that activity and email it in to the office. [email protected]  We would love to see what you decided to do.


I hope you enjoy carrying out these activities today!


Stay Safe.   Missing you lots. Mrs Tyler
