Welcome to the last week of this half term! We’ve had a busy half term and I’m sure you’re nearly ready for a break!


Extension Theme: This week we are focusing on Climate Change; what climate change is, what we can do to combat it and how Greta Thunberg has become so influential in addressing this issue. As usual you will be following links online, so parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.

Day 1 – Monday

Find English for today’s lesson 18th May

LI – To write a letter of thanks


The extension tasks for today and tomorrow may take a bit longer than usual so there is less science work today to compensate. To begin with you are going to read information from the National Geographic Kids – What is climate change? As you are reading, make notes for the information you find: https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/geography/general-geography/what-is-climate-change/ (Note: The explanation continues below the magazine advertisement).

Next you are going to watch CAFOD: Climate Change Animation for Primary Schools and make further notes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8unGCTWUWI

Your task is to imagine you have been asked to create an information page for a magazine based on climate change. Use your notes to create your page, making sure your explanation and facts are clear. You can also use pictures/images to support your explanation. Remember to proofread your work as you write, checking for spelling and punctuation.

LI – To make an information article about climate change


For those carrying on with the BBC website – https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zncsscw/year-6-lessons/1

Find Maths for today’s lesson 18th  May

LI – Decimals: Multiply and divide decimals by 10, 100 and 1000


For the maths extension group we have gone back to White Rose hub. Please click on the link below and find Summer Term, Week 1 (w/c 20 April) and select lesson 1


LI – To understand vertically opposite angles


For science today the task will take less time than usual because the English extension task was longer than normal.  I would like you to complete an assessment about our unit on humans including animals. It is eight pages long (Don’t panic the questions are really spaced out so it won’t take that long – I promise!) so I don’t suggest that you print it off, you can write the number of the question in your home learning book. For question 1 with labelling the body give each box a letter. Have a go at answering all the questions (have a best guess if you don’t know) the answers are at the end of the document.

Stilling time

For stilling time today I would like you to do some mindful colouring. While colouring think about the feel of the pen or pencil in your hand, the feel of the paper. What happens if you close your eyes or swap hands! Choose from the selection of pages below. Colouring is a great way to relax and place you in the moment. I love colouring and find it gives me a sense of achievement when I’ve finished it.



Hexagonal pattern

I won’t be posting any answers today as the work either has the answers along with it or as in the English extension task each one will be completely different.

Please do email me your work – I really want to see it! Have a good morning’s learning!
