Year 6 Home Learning Friday 5th February


Give Me 5 on portfolio

Today there is no video lesson provided as there is no new content! Today’s maths is on LBQ – we want to see how much you know about coordinates. LBQ code will be sent via DOJO.

11am Zoom Mental Maths today.  Have your paper and pen ready. Get ready to be challenged!


We are now at the half way point of Stormbreaker. Today I want you to think about the text as a whole and the themes within it. A theme is an underlying message or the big idea of a story. This message could tell more about human nature or life in general. Many stories have more than one theme. Below I have listed themes which are often in books. Please select three themes which you believe are present in Alex Rider and explain your choice, giving examples from the text.

Good Vs EvilGrowing up


Friday is spelling test day. Hopefully, you’ve used spelling frame to practise your Y 5/6 spellings –  rule 55 this week. When you log in to Spelling Frame, you will see an active tests option. Please click into there and complete your spelling test. This way your results will be sent directly to your teacher and we can see your hard work. The practise mode is still available so maybe practise on that mode beforehand to make sure you feel confident.

New Spelling Rule – rule 56. These words are taken directly from the Y5/6 spelling list (just like the last two weeks!) so you will have seen some of them last year but practise makes perfect. Use your spelling frame account throughout the week to practise these words before completing the test next Friday.


Art – Please continue with your pointillism work. You have been re-creating a piece of Seurat’s artwork using the pointillism technique. Don’t worry if you don’t have paint, you can still imitate the art style of pointillism using felt tips or another medium. Here is the clip explaining the technique, which we watched two weeks ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch/D4hqKPX6d68


P.E – Fridays are PE day! It’s time to get up and get moving.
YouTube is a great place to find suitable at home work P.E sessions such as Joe Wicks or Go Noodle.
Your P.E learning objective is to perform dances using a range of movement patterns. This BBC teach session will allow you to do this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoRBQ5V3ST8
