Happy Star Wars day Year Six. 


Welcome to Monday's home learning page. I hope you are ready for another week of learning. 


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


Let's start the week with our Reading Comprehension task. Today we are focusing on INFERENCE. This key reading skill requires you to think about the feelings and ideas that aren't immediately obvious from the text - so you really need to get your brain going in order to answer the questions.

This is the second week on the same text. Remember to read the whole text carefully again 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 Simplifying Fractions. Watch the video below carefully as this will help you with your work by working through some examples to get you started.

Please complete the activity below. Have a go at as many questions as you can. It is okay to leave a question if you are struggling. 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. You can also use the answer sheet to work through any questions you struggled to answer.
