Good Morning Y6 😊 Here are your home learning activities for Monday and Tuesday.

It's pure problem solving today! 4 challenges are in the maths file that is attached. No peaking at the answers until you are finished!

More maths? Here’s a great investigation from nrich!

Mr Harrison

Reading activity (these 3 reading tasks are for Monday and Tuesday)

Task 1

L.O: To maintain a positive attitude to reading

Have a go at reading the attachment named: The Tale of Two Doves. This is a short story set in Ancient China. There are different versions: 1 star is the easiest, 3 star is more challenging.
Ignore the question sheets for now, they are part of a different task.

Task 2

L.O: To explore the meaning of words in context

Choose at least three words from the story that you cannot explain the meaning to. If you cannot find any words, you have not chosen a challenging enough story. You may need to read the next star up (3 star is the most challenging).
Once you have chosen the words you are unsure of, find the meaning of them and write them in a sentence.
If you can explain what the words mean without using a dictionary, write them in a sentence and check whether you have got the definitions correct afterwards.

Keep your work in the ‘reading’ section of your folder.


My word is forbidden.
Forbidden means not allowed/banned.
I am forbidden to go out of the house for unnecessary reasons.

Task 3

L.O: To use all the end of KS2 reading skills (clarifying, inference, retrieval, explaining and summarising) 

Now it is time to see how much of the story you have fully understood. Choose which questions you feel confident answering. In the same file as The Tale of Two Doves, there are 3 sets of questions. 1 star is the easiest and 3 star is the most challenging.
Give yourself 5-10 minutes to read the story again. Give yourself 15-20 minutes to answer the questions as best as you can. Check your answers once you have completed the questions.

If you cannot print the question sheets, write the answers on a piece of paper. Keep your work in the ‘reading’ section of your folder.

RE: Lesson 2: From Mrs Conroy

  • Lent – this year I gave up chocolate for (almost) all of lent!

Physical Activity – from Mrs Conroy

Did you complete the 2.6 challenge? If you did really well done!

I ran 8 miles (2 + 6), Elsa and Martha ran 2.6 miles through Chatsworth Park and my husband ran 26 miles up to Baslow edge and back 13 times! We raised almost £500 for the MNDA charity which is just fantastic! I would love to hear about your challenges.
