Good morning Year 6, I hope you are all safe and well. As you will be able to see, on this page I am setting your home learning for the week. It is in the same format as last November so will hopefully be easy for you to follow.
As last time, I will talk to you each morning via a video link and explain what I'd like you to complete each day. Please remember that I don't expect for you to do everything and only want you to try your hardest, which I know you all do everyday as you are all superstars!
Also, please don't worry if you are unable to print off the work sheets. Just answer the questions on a piece of paper or in a book. I really don't mind, whatever you do is absolutely fantastic!

I know how much you all enjoy our morning task activities, especially the word of the day, so I would like you to complete a morning task sheet every day this week. They are on the document below and clearly labelled for each day. Please continue writing your fanastic, opening paragraphs and even stories (if you'd like) including the word of the day. It would be wonderful if you could email me these so I can read them. You always make me so proud with the incredible way you use these words and your wonderful imagination!
Hello Year 6,
This week in Maths we will be continuing to revise fractions. I've included the White Rose support video to help you. Don't pause the video half-way through when it says. Let it play all the way through like we sometimes do in class :-)
Please try and complete the first sheet on each day and if you feel confident try the challenge question :-) I've also included the answers so you can mark your work like we do in class. All of the work for the week is on the PowerPoint below. Please remember not to worry if you're unable to complete, you can email me with your questions.
When school was closed last November I set some work on Gadgets. I was so impressed by all of the work you did that I have decided to give you another 'Talk for Writing' activity called 'The Door'. I am positive that you will love it as much as your last activity. It will really get your imagination actively working and I can't wait to see all of the excellent work you produce.
Attached below is a booklet which includes all of the activities for 7 days. There is also a PowerPoint for you to follow.
Everyday I will let you know in my video what I'd like you to complete.
Monday 11th January - Complete activity 1 on page 3 and activity 2 on pages 3-5. Try hard to use your imagination and describe what is behind the door. Don't forget to think of your senses and use these in your writing. There is an example of these on pages 4 and 5.
Tuesday 12th January - Complete activity 3. The artistic challenge. Create an illustration for your own door. Write about the design you have chosen and why? Then, complte activity 4, looking at idioms and their meanings. I am sure you will have lots of fun working out what they mean. Ask an adult to help if you unsure.

-Following this, ask your child to summarise the events from the chapter. They could bullet point what happened, create a comic strip or present the information in their own creative way.
-Encourage your child to note down any unfamiliar words from the chapter they have read. Explore the meanings of these words by using a dictionary, reading around the sentence or using print conventions.

The God who Speaks - Year of the Word
Please use this PowerPoint to use as a family for the Month of January to mark the New Year. The aim of the Year of the Word is to be a special year of focus on the Bible. During this year we are called to explore and celebrate the Word of God through the Scriptures, share the Word with others and respond to the "God who speaks" in the way that we live.
The focus is St. Mark's Gospel, but you can read any passage you wish! The Wednesday Word is an instant way to share Scripture and the meaning together each week.
Please use the slideshow below together, read the Bible, discuss the message and maybe how we can use it in our own lives. It's up to you if you want to share a Bible story every day or once a week. There are also activity ideas for you to complete also!
There is a link to the CAFOD website that has lots of extra resources for children that you can use for the Year of the Word too!
If you are managing to finish all the set work for the week, here are some extra websites for more challenges/lessons/projects if you want to. Feel free to do your own and take responsibility for your own learning. Don’t forget you have your Education City Logins and you can free play through the subjects without me setting any. Hope these websites help a little bit!
