Hello Year 6,

Hope you’re all safe and well.  The summer countdown has begun! Not long now…

Keep trying hard with your home learning tasks for the last week or so and please get in touch on Purple Mash if you need any help.

I hope you all enjoyed your ‘virtual transitions’ to high school, last week. Make sure you visit your new school’s website regularly for updates.

Have a good week.

Frank and Jason are Wanted, but they are still carrying out daring robberies, this time it seems is the great train robbery, however, will their greed be the end of them? Ruckus is a short animation film about two bandit brothers.

Watch the film animation then complete the tasks below.

Monday Think about the desert surroundings throughout the clip. Make a list of things you would expect to find in a desert (you could do a little research). Using your list, write at least 5 sentences to describe the setting. Check out page 5 and 6 in the activity pack for some words and images that might help you with your description Ruckus KS2 Activity Pack. Remember to use your senses!
Tuesday Design your own ‘WANTED’ poster for the brothers (use pages 8 & 9 in the activity pack for help). Your poster must include a description of the brothers, the crimes they are wanted for, a sketch of them and details of the reward. Enjoy 😉
Wednesday Today, you’re going to write a ‘text message’ conversation between the brothers to devise a plan for their heist. You can use the template on page 10 for this or design your own.
Thursday Create a comic strip for the Ruckus story. Remember to include illustrations and also the speech and thoughts of the brothers in bubbles. Add some colour too! You will find a template on page 14 and an example of a comic strip below.

Friday The clip has no speech. Imagine that the brothers were talking to each other throughout the ruckus – what do you think they would say? What would the tone/atmosphere be like? Write the conversation between them as they chase each other for the diamond. Use pages 15 & 16 to help.


This week’s reading tasks are based on Be amazing! An inspiring guide to being your own champion by Sir Chris Hoy and can be found here Be Amazing! The activities are supported by video clips.
