Week 6

Home Learning - Week 6!

27th April - 1st May 2020


Around The World – Global Citizens



This week our Home Learning is another whole-school topic-web. This means that whatever year group you are in, you can work together on the same topic theme. We hope this will make things easier for families to work together on home learning.

Take a look at the topic web and select activities that you would like to do - either on your own, with your brother/sister, or together as a family.

We would love to see what you get up to as part of his week's 'Global Citizen' topic, so don't forget to send photos of what you have done to your teacher's e-mail.

Thanks to all the children and parents who have already sent things through to us - we love seeing and hearing all about your lock-down experiences and Home Learning.

In addition to the topic-web work, your teachers will have set you Maths and English work that is specific to your Year group / Class.

See the notes below the topic web.

We have set you some more Education City tasks to complete. Well done those of you who have completed the ones set so far.


You have a choice from three writing tasks this week. You could choose to:

  1. Write an ‘Isolation Survival Guide’ that Boris Johnson could send out to households around the country (Year 6s – just like the ones we did for Rainforests and the Blitz last year!). Consider your audience carefully; will you direct your guide at children or adults? Remember to make it as positive as possible and think about what has helped you over the past few weeks.
  2. Create an information page about the country you have chosen to study as part of your ‘Global’ challenge. Try to include as many features of a non-chronological report as you can, for example an eye-catching title, paragraphing, different subheading styles (alliteration, statement and rhetorical question), pictures, diagrams, captions and anything else you think will draw your reader in.
  3. Research an important historical event that took place in the country you have chosen for your ‘Global’ challenge this week. Write a news report about the event, imagining it happened recently. Remember to include a catchy headline, a lead paragraph (who, what, when, where, why) and reported and direct quotes from eyewitnesses or experts!


As always, we love to see what you’ve been up to so please email us with anything that you’re proud of! We’d love to add some more of your fab work to our ‘Hall of Fame’.




We hope you have enjoyed reading the text that your Guided Reading group has been studying over the past term. Make sure to keep your copy of the book somewhere safe, so we can collect them in when we see each other again!


This week, we would like you to focus on recording your reading in interesting ways. You can choose to use your Guided Reading book, your Reading Journal if you have one, or use a new blank book that you have at home.


Here is an example from Mrs Woods’ Reading Journal – she uses it to note down anything that she finds interesting or that jumps out at her when she is reading.



Choose a new book to read and complete these tasks:




2. Read the first chapter, either on your own or with an adult, and retell what happens to an adult.

3. Make a prediction, based on the front cover and the first chapter, of what you think will happen in the story.

4. Record who the main character is, what you know about them and anything you would like to ask them at this point.




We have set you some more MyMaths tasks. Remember that you can complete the ‘practise’ section first if you need to.

There are also some arithmetic tests at the bottom of the page. It would be a great idea to use these to keep your arithmetic strategies fresh in your mind.


Remember that White Rose are still doing their daily maths parties! These include a video and follow up tasks. All the lessons that have been released so far can be found here:


Just click on your year group, choose a lesson and get cracking!



BBC Bitesize also have daily lessons online. These are not just for Maths; there are lots of different subjects on there to explore!



Diocese Challenges



There are three challenges this week from the Diocese: Breakfast on the Beach, the Picture Challenge (this might help you with your Global challenge this week!) and the Stormzy Lyrics Challenge. You’ll find these at the bottom of the page if you’re looking for something a bit different to do!
