Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 page. Below you can find out about what we have been learning in class as well as links to home learning activities.

Home Learning during school closure

Hello Year 6! I hope that you are well.

Thank you for taking the time to look at your class page. Below you will find plenty of activities to keep you busy and to keep you learning. 

These activities will be regularly updated if the school continues to remain closed to the majority of pupils.

If you have completed any home learning tasks, please email them to me as I would love to see what you have been doing and I can share them on here. 

Easter Holidays

Year 6 you have been amazing the last couple of weeks and I have really enjoyed speaking to some of you through email and seeing what you have been up to. It is now meant to be the Easter holidays and it is important that you have a break, however I do appreciate that life is a little different at the moment. I am not posting any new activities on this page, but there are plenty of things that I am sure you may not have looked at yet. If you have, then don't forget to head over to the 'Daily Challenge' page (just click on the brain), lots of different types of challenges on there. There is also Mrs. Harrison's story challenge and her new Easter challenge. Whatever you do, be good, be kind and stay safe.

Watch the Titanium Video below, then do the following activities. Please click on the word Lesson to access any relevant worksheets.

Lesson 1: Fill in the boxes to suggest what the boy is feeling and what he might be thinking at various points in the video. What do you happened to lead up to the start of the video?

Lesson 2: Read the short narrative; it shows how the boy was feeling during the  first minute of the video. Your task today is to write a short narrative about the same part of the video but from the point of view of the teacher.

Lesson 3: What do you think the teacher said to the police officer? Write the conversation that they would have had as the teacher tries to explain what had happened. Remember to punctuate your speech carefully. Make sure that the words you use reflect how she is feeling. Do you think the police officer believes her? 

Lesson 4: You are going to be writing a 'Police Incident Report' outlining what has happened at the school. It must: be factual; use a formal tone and vocabulary; 3rd person recount; chronological with time conjunctions; contain quotes from a witness. Look at the example. Can you highlight and identify these features? Try and re-write just the first paragraph.

Lesson 5: Today you will need the help of somebody else in your home, as you are going to pretend to be the police officer and teacher. The police officer needs to get a witness statement from the teacher. Decide who is going to be whom. When interviewing there are a few points that you must remember: 1) Police officers can not ask 'leading questions'  2) Think carefully about your questions and how you phrase them, you do not want to upset the person you are interviewing and you need to get as much information out of them as possible  3) Maintain a formal tone in your interview process  4) You need to make sure the 5Ws are answered (who, what, when, where, why). After the teacher has been interviewed look at the example witness statement then have a go at trying to write your own.
