Hi Year 6,
Here is an online learning pack for any children that are self-isolating. You can also scroll down this page, which is full of lots of work. If you have any worries about anything, please email me through the class 6 email address.
This pack includes maths, grammar and punctuation and also some reading.
Year 6 Home Learning
Each day I will be updating this page with activities and work that your child can complete from home. A pack of resources has been sent home so that your child has the resources to complete the work. Children have also been given an email address so that they can contact a member of staff if they are struggling with any work provided.
Please check in each day as answers to previous work will be uploaded and new work will be provided on a daily basis.
Don't worry if you are struggling to keep up - just do what you can, and please make sure that you plan in time to rest, relax and socialise online with friends. Enjoy this new way of learning and remember, we are here if you have any worries.
Mrs Ingham, Miss Gillies, Miss Coggan

WINNING STORY ENDING IN YEAR 6
Sorry for the delay - we have finally managed to upload the winning story ending by Esrom onto the website. I am sure you will agree that it is was worth the wait. Esrom has written a superb ending to the story which is filled with suspense. Well done to a very worthy winner and well done to all the other entries. It was such a difficult decision in choosing a winner.

Statue in Leeds City Centre
There has been lots of information in the news this week, about statues being taken down as they promote and celebrate the lives of people that have contributed to the suffering of black people in the past.
- What do you think should happen to these statues?
- If they are completely destroyed, how will we remember what happened in the past?
- Could this lead to people forgetting about the awful things that have happened in the past?
- How might this impact on our future lives?
Statues are erected to help others remember them in the future. They are usually people that have been seen to make a difference in the world or that have done something amazing. However, as we look at some of the statues in our country today, we realise they may have been influential people, but for the wrong reasons.
Can you choose a person of influence, that you think deserves a statue of them being created and put up in Leeds City Square.
- Who do you think should be remembered in this way?
- If you were to choose a statue to stand in Leeds City Square, who would you choose?
- Give reasons for your choice and explain how they will make a positive contribution in the future by being remembered.
Songwriters often write songs about emotional events in their lives. It helps to release their feelings and their words create images of these feelings. Could you write a song about the events happening around the death of George Floyd?
To write a prayer related to the PowerPoint above.
- Will you pray for the people whom are suffering and being treated unfairly?
- Will you pray for a world where racism does not exist?
- Will you pray for those people that commit these crimes and that they will become better people?
We are seeing lots of very upsetting newsreports of violence, hatred, destruction at the moment. Could you write a newspaper report of something good that is happening in the world at the moment; something that involves difference races coming together and supporting one another.

I hope you have enjoyed your half term holidays and are ready to get back to learning. You will notice that I have put work up for the week instead of daily. This is because some children will be back in school this week, so if you begin back at school next week, you will be working from home on the activities on the website. Those who are in school this week, will do activities in school and will complete this work next week. Some children are not returning to school; if you are one of these children, you will complete these activities over 2 weeks and will need to watch out for some of the school activities over the next 2 weeks being uploaded. Due to the work being on a 2 weekly cycle, answers will not go up until the following week so remember to go back and mark your work at a later date. Have a great week and remember we are here to help if you have any issues. Mrs Ingham x

Try to use some colons and semicolons in today's writing. If you've forgotten how to use them, follow the following link.
The house on the hill
It seemed like a lifetime since I had last visited the house on the hill, but I knew deep in my heart, that one day it would draw me back to it – like a magnet it both repelled and attracted me.
Grey, desolate and windswept, the house perched ominously in the gloom. Alone and miserable, I stood staring at it, not wanting to go back inside…but I had to, I had no choice.
Gradually, my feet dragging through the long, soaking grass, I climbed the hill, eventually reaching the front door. I stared… sighed… summoned the courage… before knocking loudly.
1. What is the house like? Which words or phrases describe it?
2. How old do you think the narrator is? Why do you think this?
3. Why do you think the narrator has returned?
4. Who do you think lives in the house? Or is it empty ?
5. Why might the narrator not want to knock on the door?
Can you complete the 100 Word Challenge by writing the next 100 words of the story?
The page is empty... the ending is unknown... what will the next 100 words be?
Follow the link below to a lesson where you will learn about Evolution. This lesson will look at Darwin’s observations from his trip on the HMS Beagle.

Hi everyone, It is really strange to think that today would've been the beginning of your SATs. So today, I have set some fun tests for you to have a go at; they are pretty silly, but will be fun for you to try out. Give them a go and then get an adult to mark them or you could try and work out your score yourself!
I hope you all managed to enjoy VE Day and that you managed to carry out some of the activities that I set for you. It would be lovely to receive some of your photographs.
Literacy Here is a poem all about SATs; read the poem and I would like you to begin a brainstorm about how you feel about SATs and the fact that you aren't doing them. Start to collect a range of phrases, vocabulary and ideas that you could include in your own poem. You could also begin to collect images that could decorate your poem: either clipart, sketches or cartoons.

Writing - Plot the 'Lost and Found' on the attached story mountain. Think about the different parts of the story and think carefully about the build up and the resolution when planning the story. If you prefer, you can create your own planning sheet for the story.
Begin to plan some of your vocabulary and literary devices on the back of your planning sheet. (powerful adjectives, verbs, adverbs, alliteration, similes, personification, power of three etc.)

Lost and Found
This week's writing is going to be based around this short film. It is a love story that tugs at the heart strings, and shows how far people will go for a true friend. This animation is full of emotion which has been created through the characters. Music, actions and expressions haveall been used to draw in the viewer. This week, we are are going to try and create the same effect through our use of language.
Click the image below to watch the short film.
Reading Inference Questions
1) How do you know that the 2 characters have a good relationship?
2) How does the dinosaur show its emotions when the fox falls in the water?
3) Why does the dinosaur cover its eyes as it jumps off the table?
4) What words do you think are going through the dinosaurs mind at this point?
5) How do you think the fox is feeling when it sees the dragon unravelling?
6) Do you think the characters are boys, girls or both? Why?
7) Does this film remind you of any other stories. If so, which ones and how are they similar?

Good morning Year 6 - well done for all your hard work again this week. Lots of you are still completing the work on a daily basis, and this will really help you when you start high school in September. You've only 2 days to go up until the Easter holidays where I will be setting an Easter Challenge for you all. If you have any ideas of a competition or activities that you would like to do, then please let me know. I would also love to see your diary writing from this week, so please send me them via email.
You may have heard about the new Nightingale Hospital in London, that has been built over the last week, and they are asking for bright pictures to hang on the walls to brighten up the hospital. Please could you send any pictures to me and I will pass them on to the hospital. Pictures need to be A4 size as they will be laminated, so if you get a minute, it would be great if you could make one for me to send to them.
I found this challenge online yesterday and saw lots of adults struggling to solve it; however, I know that most of you will be able to solve the problem. Look really carefully as it isn't quite as straightforward as it first looks, and email me when you think you have worked out the answer. Happy problem solving!

Once you have finished these, you can either post them yourselves or email them to me and I will make sure they get to the amazing people working in our hospitals. You can write your letter to the doctors, nurses, porters, paramedics, catering teams or domestic staff working in the hospitals.
