Please remember there will be more activities planned on our home learning page than we expect the children to do. This means that there is some choice for the children depending on their interests and depending on home resources. Feel free to adapt any of the activities and, please just do what you can when you can.

Dear Year 6, 

We hope you are all keeping safe.  This week we have included a suggested time table for the week with the home learning.

 We have tried to make sure that these activities don’t all need the internet or lots of resources. If you don’t have access to what you need, try to modify the activity or try a different one.

Have a look at the maths magic tricks on the main year 6 page and have a go and Don't forget to keep in touch by using the email:

Doors – the world of possibility….



This week you are going to write your portal story using the character and the mysterious door you described last week.


Story map or plan:


Plan your story. You could do it as a story map.


Think about:

What will happen when they go through the door?

What will they find?

What will be the ‘exciting’ part?

How will your story end?

How many paragraphs will you have?

Start writing your story.

Make sure you include some expanded noun phrases and different ways to start your sentences.


What about the ‘Power of Three’? Can you include an idiom?


Don’t forget to include some of the lovely sentences and ideas you wrote last week or the week before.

Continue writing your story.

Read back over what you have written so far.


Does your story make sense so far? What will happen next?


Have you included information about how your characters are feeling?


Don’t forget to include all your punctuation!!!

Could you include some parenthesis?



Finish your story.


Can you read it aloud to someone? Does it all make sense? Have you included enough description and action?


Have you checked your spellings?

Have you checked your punctuation?

You could edit your story or publish it.


You could upload it to the year 6 padlet page or email it to us at






Can you remember any of the common phrases on this sheet? (scroll to the bottom of the page for the phrases).

Practice saying them to people at home and impress them all!


Can you plan a summer music festival?

Music festivals are all about listening to your favourite artists, having fun and feeling fine!

1]. If you could choose 5 bands or artists to play at your music festival, who would you choose and why?

2]. When a band plays at a festival, they usually choose their most popular song to end on. Which song would each of your bands end on?

3]. Of your 5 bands, which one would ‘headline’ your summer festival? (which do you think is the best band/artist of all?)

4]. Learn the lyrics to the song you have chosen for question number 4.


1] Have a go at performing your song for your friends and family.

2] Create a playlist using the 5 bands/ artists you have chosen of the songs they would play at your summer music festival and have your own festival in the garden!


Having learned all about evolution in science this past term, let’s try to think about what could happen next in the evolution process!

Choose an animal (this could include humans) and think how this animal species could evolve next. Can you think about a useful adaptation that could help that species to survive? For example: Whales – maybe they will adapt and develop so that they are able to roll themselves over. This would be useful for when whales get beached and would help them be able to ‘roll’ themselves back into the water.

**Remember that this evolving will take thousands, even millions of years and won’t happen overnight! It also happens by accident and not on purpose.


Create a labelled drawing of your animal and what it might look like/be able to do in the future! Send it to us so we can put it on the Year 6 Gallery!


Have you noticed more birds in your local area recently? They are easier to see and hear at this time of year because young birds are fledging, and the parents are looking out for them in family groups.


Listen to the songs on the website below and then listen out for them when you are in the garden or out walking or simply open a window!




The best time to hear birds sing is the first hour or so after sunrise. This is called the DAWN CHORUS.

It really is worth waking up early to hear – you can always go back bed afterwards!
