Hello Year 6,

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend and you and your families are safe and well.  A huge well done to all those who accessed and completed the home learning tasks I set last week. Remember, it is really important that you plan some learning time into each day, organising your daily timetable to suit you and your family.

Your home learning tasks for week beginning April 27th are below.  Maths and English tasks should be completed by Friday 1 May.  If you have any questions or need any login details, please email me through Purple Mash and I will reply as soon as I can.

Have a good week.

Mrs D

PS. Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could record a short video clip (no more than a minute long), talking about your primary school experiences, to support the children who have just found out that they’ll be joining our reception class in September?  I know it’s a while ago now, but you could talk about how you felt when you first started school as well as what you’ve enjoyed most about being a pupil at LSJ.  Please send your fabulous films to stating in the email that you have parental permission for your video to be used on the LSJ website and Facebook page.  Thank you year 6!


Morning Maths

Year 6 Maths Revision Morning Starter – Pack 4

Daily maths lessons

Lessons 1 & 2 will look at angles in quadrilaterals and polygons.  A protractor is not needed for this week’s work.

Please follow the link to White Rose Home Learning summer term, week 2.

If you are finding some of the WR activities tricky, I’ve included some alternative options from Classroom Secrets for lesson 1 and 2.  You know how CS works – the level of difficulty is your choice.  You can either print the worksheet (if you have access to a printer), complete it and stick it into your maths book, or record your answers directly into your books.  Whether you choose to work on WR or CS activities, you will need to watch the White Rose video clips to guide your learning.

Monday Lesson 1: Angles in Quadrilaterals (CS – AnglesInQuadrilaterals_VF)
Tuesday Lesson 2: Angles in Polygons (CS – AnglesInPolygons_VF)
Wednesday Lesson 3: Problem Solving
Thursday Lesson 4: Problem Solving
Friday Maths Challenge (questions 1-6 most suitable for y6)


Answers should be recorded in your maths book.


My Maths

A mixed assessment task has been set.



Check your 2Dos in Purple Mash.  You have a reading and a writing activity to complete for Chapter 1 of ‘Cyber Crime Files’.

It is important to spend 30 minutes 3-4 times each week on Reading Plus as well as reading your own choice of book.


The Literacy Company has more exciting writing tasks for you to try out.   Based on these activities, I have outlined your writing timetable for this week below.

Monday Favourite hobby – write an information text about your hobby including persuasive features about its benefits.
Tuesday Grammar question and answer – create a grammar quiz to test your family, friends and your teacher too 😉
Wednesday Practise sentences – practise writing a range of sentences on a topic of your own choice.
Thursday Make your own lunch – create a super sandwich or healthy snack (get permission first). Write instructions for your recipe!
Friday What’s the issue?  – think about something you are passionate about.  Choose a genre to organise your points and present your arguments.
