Hello Year 6. Welcome to Tuesday's home learning page. I hope you’re looking forward to getting stuck into your home learning activities today!

Pig Heart Boy (By Malorie Blackman)

Our class reader this term is Pig Heart Boy. This is a great story which promotes a lot of debate and discussion around the events that take place within it. I hope you will enjoy reading it and debating the topics. We will be using this text for some of our writing this term too.

Please read chapter 1 & 2 which you will find below.

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

Writing task: Lockdown guide


Last week, you began writing a lockdown guide. This week, you are going to continue to write it and edit the final piece. Hopefully, you are at the stage where you have an introduction and a first section - all edited and ready to go.


Job number one is to refresh your mind and read what you did last week - remember the tone you are using and the audience you are writing for.


Then, look back at your plan that you created last week. Decide upon the next section to write next. Think carefully about how to link your previous paragraph with your new one. This might be an additional sentence or paragraph needs to be added on to make a smooth and sophisticated link.


Have a look at the examples so far below, these are only drafts, so many will be edited further - but they show you just how hard you have all been working on this. Remember, if you are magpie-ing work - you have to adapt it in your own voice! Thank you to everyone who sent examples in.

Great examples of lockdown writing so far

Topic - Body Shop (Day 2)

Complete your Body Shop work that you started yesterday. Remember to ensure you include sections about all 14 of the key parts you will need to make up a human body and explain why they are essential. You can't have a body without all of these vital parts!


Please send me a picture of your finished leaflets - I'd love to see how creative you have been.


If you fancy a little challenge once you've finished, have a go at the 'Wierd Bits 'N' Pieces quiz below. This tests your knowledge of some of the not-so-well-known body bits - Enjoy!

Lockdown Art Recreations

Below are more recreations of art made during lockdown, including one by key worker children at school. Have you seen the original pieces that these were based on? Please send in any that you have made.
