Hi year 6!  Mrs Tyler here again!   Hope you have had a fabulous weekend and that you have enjoyed the sunshine.  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 over the weekend. I really do appreciate it and I am very proud of you.  Well done to EGN, WC, CH, DLM, MG, PM, LW, LA, 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  Monday 27th  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:  The girl, who was known to be a trouble maker, would always interrupt the teacher.


individual,  interfere,  interrupt,   language ,  leisure

I would like you to open the activity in the writing folder called 'Reading activity the door.'  Scroll down the page and read the poem 'The Door' by Miroslav Holub.  Then scroll back up and click onto the two links where you can listen to the poem being read in two different ways.  Think about which reading your prefer and why?

Then open 'Responding to the activity the Door' and make some notes about the poem using the questions to help you.

For example:

I liked the way in which the line 'Go and Open the Door' is repeated throughout the poem because it created rhythm and it made the poem sound more interesting to listen to.

My favourite line in the poem  is maybe a dog's rummaging.  I like this line because the way the poet has used the powerful verb 'rummaging' to describe how the dog is looking for something.

I can develop my inference skills

Value: Optimism

Have a go at answering the comprehension questions based on  the story - 'Riddle House.'  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 identify properties of 2D shapes

Value: Self-belief

This lesson is all to do with recognising and understanding the  properties of 2D shapes.    First  click on the bitesize link ' How to identify different polyggons.'  Watch the clip.  Once you have finished watching the clip, scroll down and read the information about each shape.  Then play 'fill in the gaps.'

Once you have done this,  click open the properties of shapes sheets.  You can either print these off or draw the shapes and write down the properties of them.  Think back to what you have learnt from the clips.  I have also attached some answers to help you as well.

For example:

Name of the first shape:

Equilateral Triangle

3 Sides the same length

3 vertices (corners)

Angles within triangle add up to 180º

Has three lines of symmetry



Go on a shape hunt around your house and in the garden.  What 2D shapes can you find?  Which shape is the most popular?    Why not take some photos of the shapes that you have found and email them in.
