Welcome to Wednesday's home learning page Year 6. All of your tasks for the day can be found below.

Writing Task: Explanation Text

Now that you have explained what blood is, next you need to include information about the components of blood and their roles. This will enable your reader to understand the important functions it has.

Before you start writing, watch this video again:

What Is Blood?

Key information for you to include:

It would be best to write a short paragraph (with a clear subheading) about each component and its function to explain why blood is so important. Today, aim to write two of these sections.

Here is an example to get you started:


What are the functions of blood?

There are four main components of blood: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. Each of these have a very important and vital role to play.


Red Blood Cells

Interestingly, red blood cells carry oxygen around the human body which is necessary to keep us alive. Without oxygen our bodies would die. The cells are soft and rubbery thus enabling them to be able to squeeze through small vessels to travel around our bodies effectively.


There is a lot more you could say about red blood cells so try to add as much detail as you can.


Today we will be looking at Dividing Decimals by Integers. Watch the video below carefully as this will help you with your work by working through some examples to get you started.

Divide decimals by integers

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.

RE – Pentecost

Respond to the scripture from this unit of work on Pentecost. It’s time for your favourite arty RE! Draw an image to show your understanding of one of the pieces of scripture below.


Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)


You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised. (Luke 24:48-49)


The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  (Galatians 5:22-23)


Remember that the scripture should be large enough to be the main part of the response and you need to include the Bible reference.

Here a few examples of responses to help you with ideas.
