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

Today we will be ordering and comparing fractions. Watch the video below carefully as this will help you to get started by modelling examples of the task.

Ordering and Comparing Fractions

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.

Writing Task: Discussion Text

How do you learn best? For our next piece of writing we would like to think about how you enjoy learning. Some of you will be desperately missing school and I’m sure there are a few of you who are really enjoying home learning!


Today I want you to think about the positives about both of these situations. What do you like about learning at school? What do you like about learning at home?

Task: Organise your ideas into a table like the one below…


Is learning at school the best way to learn?

  • My teachers are incredible and help me!
  • I can complete my work at any time of the day that suits me best.


Topic - Funny Bones (Day 2)

Yesterday you were challenged to learn the names of the bones that make up the human skeleton. How many of the bones have you remembered the names of? See if you can recall the names of some the bones before checking your ideas on the image of the skeleton below.



Now I want you to have a little bit of fun. Rather than just labelling a blank skeleton, I thought it would be more fun to play a game. You will need a willing family member to help you. 


First, teach them the names of the bones you have learnt. If you have learnt them all, perhaps teach them the name of 6-10 main bones.

Next, challenge them to a game of Simon Says - human body addition.


How to play

Player 1 might say...Simon Says touch your cranium (player 2 would touch their head)

Player 1 might say....Simon says touch your patella (player 2 would touch their kneecap)

Player 1 might say...Touch your humerous (player 2 shouldn't move! If they touch their upper arm they have the correct bone but are out as you didn't say Simon Says)


Take it in turns to play with your family member.


If you want even more fun, you could use the Bone and Groan Quiz below (it's meant to test your teacher but a family member would work too!)

This day in history: 1962
