Great Reads




Hi everyone,

Yeah! Last day of remote-learning! Woooohooooo! We did it! Well done and a great big thank you for all of your hard work this week! Make sure you say a big thank you to your parents for all of their help and support this week too. If you want to, bring your learning in to school on Monday, especially your Mary Anning projects. Then, we can share our learning with each other. We are very proud of you - you are a great bunch of Year 6 pupils! 

We are looking forward to seeing you in the flesh on Monday but for now, please find below your last set of activities for your last day of remote-learning... 



Join us live at 9:00am for your English lesson!


Today we have another prefix activity (un, in, dis) to complete. If you can, print off the Word document below before the lesson. If you can’t print it off, don’t worry! Have them to hand on your ipad/laptop/phone.


Here is the Word document with the words you will need for the activity.



If you can’t join the live lesson, don’t worry! Here is a PowerPoint containing the lesson:




Reading for Pleasure

Today, we would like you to read your own reading book for 30 minutes. Find somewhere comfortable and quiet to sit. Miss Smy is re-reading ‘Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince.’ What are you reading?


Join us live at 11:00am for your Maths lesson!


We are going to be completing some code-breaker challenges today.

If you can’t join us live, don’t worry! Here are the tasks that we are going to be looking at. You don’t have to do all of them – pick which one you would like to do.



To help you, here are the rules for multiply and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 if you need them, along with instructions on how to find a fraction of an amount:



Join us live at 1:30pm for your Music lesson!


Jazz Music

Jazz music originates from Afro-America and was popular around the 1920s. It is recognised by it’s varied rhythms, instrumentation and improvisation sections where the performer has the freedom to ‘make it up on the spot’. We have learned that this takes much skill!


In our music lessons, as well as learning to play a jazz piece on the Glockenspiel, you have heard Cleo Lane and John Dankworth performing a jazz song with her scat singing and you have enjoyed listening to Dave Brubeck’s ‘Take 5’ where you tried to tap the pulse beat for 5 beats in a bar.


Today, we would like you to listen to 3 pieces of jazz music and for each, we would like you to complete the Listening Grid to identify:


  1. The instruments you hear playing
  2. How many beats in a bar you can count
  3. How the music makes you feel
  4. What you like/dislike about each pieceCLICK HERE FOR THE LISTENING GRIDIf you can't print it off, don't worry! Copy it into your Home Book instead.


Finally, we would like you to choose your favourite piece and explain why it is your favourite.


The 3 pieces are:

Maple Leaf Rag – Scott Joplin   CLICK HERE FOR 'MAPLE LEAF RAG'


So What? – Miles Davis      CLICK HERE FOR 'SO WHAT?'


Rhapsody in Blue – George Gershwin    CLICK HERE FOR 'RHAPSODY IN BLUE'

This final piece is a whopping 9 minutes long so you do not have to listen to all of it if you cannot manage it, the first 3 mins will do!


Try improvising a short section of energetic rhythm to each piece – you could tap, clap or even find a makeshift drum to do this!!



If after all that, you would like something extra to do then....

* TT Rockstars 

* Numbots (SY Maths group)

* The Daily Mile

* Quiet Reading 

* Spellings - test yourself on your weekly spellings





  Hi everyone!

Day 3 is done - 2 to go! It's Friday Eve... we're almost there!

Thank you to all of you who joined us for our Zoom lessons yesterday - we hope you enjoyed them. We're sorry if the Zoom kept freezing on any of your lessons, Maths in particular. We can organise/control lots of things with our remote-learning but Internet band widths isn't one of them! ;-)

Please see below for today's activities. Zoom lessons are at the same times again. Don't forget, if you don't understand something, stay on the Zoom call or, if you go off and do your task and then find you are stuck, re-join the Zoom call. We keep the meeting 'open' for the whole lesson in case anyone needs any help. This means the Zoom call will be open from 9am - 10am, 11am - 12pm and 1:30pm - 2:30pm. Today, you have Miss Smy for English and History and Mrs Atkinson (hopefully) for Maths. 



Join us live at 9:00am for your English lesson!


Using the same PDF you have been using for your Guided Reading tasks, scroll to page 6 – Vocab 2. Today, we are focusing on antonyms. Firstly, you need to know what each of the purple words mean. (You should have this information from the Guided Reading task that you completed on Tuesday). Then, find an antonym for each of the purple words. If you want to try the extra challenge, then use each of your antonyms in a new sentence.


Here is a PowerPoint on antonyms to help you if you can’t join the live lesson.

Antonyms PowerPoint


Re-read the same text as Tuesday (pages 1 and 2).

The Ancient Greeks English Pack

Scroll to page 4.

Answer as many of the questions as you can on this page only.


Then, scroll down and mark your own learning – the answers are towards the bottom of the PDF.


Join us live at 11:00am for your Maths lesson!


You will be completing some more fun Maths investigations today! You may find it useful to print of the sheets below before the lesson. If you can’t print them off, don’t worry! Have them to hand on your ipad/laptop/phone.

AW Maths Group: 61  65




As well as this, make sure you spend some time on TT Rockstars (15 minutes please). SY Maths group – you could also spend 15 minutes on Numbots if you have the time at some point today.


Join us live at 1:30am for your History lesson!


If you can’t join us, please don’t worry! Here are some instructions:


Starter: Read the story of Athena and Medusa.

The Story of Medusa and Athena 

From the story, what do you think temples were for in Ancient Greece?  


In Ancient Greece, temples were not places where people met or where religious services happened. They were houses for gods and goddesses. Religious services happened outside the temples and inside there was a statue of the god or goddess who lived there, and all the offerings given to that god or goddess by the ordinary people. They were, by far, the most important buildings in Ancient Greece. The myth you have just read was set in the most important temple left standing today – the Parthenon, in Athens, the capital city of Ancient Greece. Athena lived there. 


Look through the presentation on The Parthenon.

Parthenon PowerPoint


Activity 1:

Find out the names of some of the other famous temples in Greece and where they are located.


Activity 2:

Find out 5 facts about either: Zeus, Athena or Medusa.

(You can do more than one of these if you want. E.g. Zeus and Medusa. You are also welcome to find more than five facts. It is up to you!)


You can share your facts about the temples and Zeus/Athena/Medusa via Zoom/Dojo.
