Monday 27th April 2020

Welcome to Monday's home learning page. It is the start of another week and we have some great activities planned for you to do.


Please remember that Miss Cappella and Mr English are here to support your learning and are contactable via email - they are happy to help!


Monday morning usually means reading comprehension in Year 6. So let's get back to it! Today we are focusing on Fact Retrieval. This key reading skill requires you to skim and scan the text to pick out key information in order to answer the questions.

Remember to read the whole text carefully first. Then answer the following questions related to that text.


If you normally stay in the classroom with Miss C for reading, please work on the text and related questions about The Great Wall of China.


If you normally go to the library with Mr English for reading, please work on the text and related questions about The Real Blackbeard.

Once you have answered all of the questions, check and your answers carefully using the answers sheets below.


Today we will be looking at scale factors. Watch the video below carefully as this will help you to explore scale factors by working through some examples to get you started.

Using scale factors

Please complete the activity below. Remember you can print out the sheets, or just workout the answers in your workbook.

A document containing the answers can also be found below so you can mark your own work once you’re finished.

Library Group


If you are in the library group - or even not - and fancy extra scale factor challenges this week, try some of the activities below. You will find the answers attached to the document.

Kahoot! Great at Grammar challenge


There is another Great at Grammar Kahoot challenge to take part in this week. It can be found at the link below. One player, a Mrs Goggins, has already taken it - and got 100% of the answers correct! Can you beat her points score and knock her out of the top ten?


The last question also gives you a chance to shape the challenge next week - what do you think should happen next?



Topic - Body Shop (Day 1)

Last week you thought about what was inside the human body. You had some great ideas, some funny ideas and most of you missed out quite a few body parts!

But don't worry - today we will be finding out all of the important body bits needed to make a human.

Read the 'Body Shop' information below to find out what you need and the role / function of these body parts.

Now you have learnt about the 14 key parts needed to make your human body, I would like you to create a leaflet for a Body Shop.

  • Explain the body parts you sell, their function / why they are needed and give them a price.
  • Think carefully about ensuring you explain why each body part is important.
  • Add a picture of the body part to illustrate the text.


For example: One of the 14 sections of writing may look like this...


Super Skeleton

You need a sturdy skeleton (made up of 206 bones) to ensure your body is kept upright and all of the organs inside are protected. This framework for the human body is an essential purchase.

You have today and tomorrow to work on your Body Shop.



Time to get the body moving. Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. It also helps us to feel happy, energised and ready to learn. Pick from one of the options below or if you prefer, choose your own.
